24. Termination of Account (Deactivation and Suspension)

You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions in "Settings" on the Website, however if you use a third-party payment account, you will need to manage in app purchases through such account (e.g., iTunes, Google Play) to avoid additional billing. We may terminate your account at any time without notice if it believes that you have violated these Terms of Use. After your account is terminated, this Agreement will terminate, except for those provisions which shall generally by their interpretation survive such termination.


25. In-App Purchases

From time to time, we may offer products and services for purchase ("in app purchases") through iTunes, Google Play, carrier billing, Scrapabill direct billing or other payment platforms authorized by us. If you choose to make an in app purchase, you will be prompted to confirm your purchase with the applicable payment provider, and your method of payment (be it your card or a third party account such as Google Play or iTunes) (your "Payment Method") will be charged for the in app purchase at the prices displayed to you for the service(s) you've selected as well as any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your payments, and you authorize us or the third party account, as applicable, to charge you. If you purchase an auto-recurring periodic subscription through an in-app purchase, your Payment Method will continue to be billed for the subscription until you cancel. After your initial subscription commitment period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing. If you want to change or terminate your subscription, you will need to log in to your third-party account (or Settings on Scrapabill) and follow instructions to terminate or cancel your subscription, even if you have otherwise deleted your account with us or if you have deleted the Scrapabill application from your device. Deleting your account on Scrapabill or deleting the Scrapabill application from your device does not terminate or cancel your subscription.

 

26. Direct Payments to Scrapabill

If you pay Scrapabill directly, Scrapabill may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. If you initiate a chargeback or otherwise reverse a payment made with your Payment Method, Scrapabill may terminate your account immediately in its sole discretion.

You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting Scrapabill and going to Settings. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information, terminate or cancel your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for your credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If you reside outside of the Americas, you agree that your payment to Scrapabill will be through Scrapabill account.

 

27. Virtual Items

From time to time, you may be able to purchase or earn a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use "Virtual Items", which could include virtual products or virtual “coins” or other units that are exchangeable within the Service for virtual products (collectively, "Virtual Items"). Any Virtual Item balance shown in your account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license. All purchases and redemptions of virtual items made through the service are final and non-refundable. You acknowledge that Scrapabill is not required to provide a refund in respect of virtual items for any reason, and that you will not receive money or othercompensation for unused virtual items when an account is closed, whether such closure was voluntary or involuntary.
