Please read these coin terms and conditions (“Coin Terms”) carefully before purchasing any virtual coins, cash, tokens or other in-game currency available through or otherwise in relation to our Services ("Coins"). By ordering any Coins, you agree to be bound by these Coin Terms and the Terms. These Coin Terms are in addition to the Terms and if there is a conflict between the Coin Terms and the Terms, the Coin Terms shall apply.
These Coin Terms cover your purchase and use of Coins.
Please be aware that a number of our Services have more than one in-game currency. If this is the case, there will be different items which can be purchased with each type of in-game currency, and each may be acquired in different ways.
Coins can only be used in line with these Coin Terms and within the game in which they are purchased or otherwise acquired. You acknowledge that certain additional in-game functionality may only be accessible in exchange for Coins.
These Coin Terms also apply if you win or are given any Coins because you have participated in a competition, survey or marketing campaign. These Coin Terms will also apply if you win Coins through playing any of our games.
Some of our games let you buy Coins. You can recognise these games because they have an option to purchase Coins, usually at the top of the specific game playing window. Games may allow you to buy different amounts of Coins and may have temporary offers or sales for Coin purchases.
Please note that when purchasing Coins through one of our games, which you have downloaded from an app store, there may be additional terms and conditions which apply. You may be asked to agree to the app store provider's own terms and conditions, which will apply in addition to these Coin Terms. We suggest you read app store terms carefully and follow the process provided by the relevant app store.
You can buy Coins from us for real money if you are 18 years of age or older or, if you are under 18, have the permission of a parent or guardian. We may ask you to provide the details of your parent or guardian from time to time.
If you want to buy any Coins, please follow the steps set out in the game which you have downloaded. If you experience any difficulties when purchasing Coins, you can email us at: email@example.com.
Please note the following:
This depends on the game. The app and website accounts are not always linked, but in some cases, such as for 8 Ball Pool, Soccer Stars and Agar.io, the Coin wallets are linked. However, for some games there is no linkage, and if you purchase Coins through that game app, they will not appear in your website account you may have with us.
You can spend your Coins in order to acquire additional features, items, or benefits (“Premium Item”) within the game within which you purchased the Coins. When you use Coins to acquire a Premium Item within a game, the relevant amount of Coins will automatically be deducted from your account that is connected with that game.
The nature and duration of any Premium Items you buy will vary between and within our games. Some Premium Items may only be used a limited number of times within the relevant game.
We can at any time, without notifying you, vary the scope, variety and type of Premium Items. Miniclip has no obligation to make, or continue to make, any specific Premium Item for any game. We may also restrict or vary the type of Premium Items available to you based on your country of residence.
By buying or using Coins, you agree not to:
Although users may hold more than one account, it is strictly prohibited to use multiple accounts to hold and use Coins in any manner that is contrary to the general purpose of a game. It is strictly prohibited to sell an account or any Coins to any person.
We may from time to time limit the use of Coins, including applying limits to the number of Coins allocated to your account at any time, and/or the number of Coins redeemable within a given time period.
When you buy Coins, you are buying a limited personal revocable licence to use the Coins. You agree that the Coins do not constitute personal property and are not legal tender or currency of any kind. All Coins purchased by you are non-refundable. No interest is paid or earned on any Coins balance.
You have certain rights in respect of the Coins. These include that we have the right to supply the Coins to you and that the Coins will be of satisfactory quality and as described. You have certain legal remedies if we breach any of these rights. Nothing in these Coin Terms is intended to affect these legal rights or other rights to which you may also be entitled.
If we are unable to resolve any disputes between us about your purchase of the Coins or these Coin Terms, you have the right to refer the dispute to the EU’s Online Dispute Resolution platform at https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.chooseLanguage.
By purchasing Coins from us, you agree that we can transfer them to your account as soon as we can. By agreeing to these terms, each time you click to confirm a purchase, you acknowledge that you expressly consent to the supply of the Coins immediately and acknowledge that you will lose your right to change your mind and cancel such order within the 14-day cooling-off period otherwise provided by law.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account if:
If your account has been suspended for the first time, we may remove all of the Coins in your account. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you are engaging in unlawful, fraudulent or other improper activity for a second time, we may suspend or terminate your account and any use of your Coins. If this happens, you are not entitled to any reimbursement, refund or any other compensation, except at our sole discretion.
If your account has been suspended for a second time or terminated, you will lose all of the balance of your Coins. If this happens, you are not entitled to any reimbursement, refund or any other compensation, except at our sole discretion.
It is possible that you have successfully ordered and paid for your Coins, but you may not have received them. Please remember that during busy periods, there may be a short delay before your Coins are assigned to your account.
If you are still having issues receiving your Coins and you have not received them after a short period of time, please let us know by contacting customer support at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are not responsible for the following types of loss or damage which may arise from your use of the Coins:
