OWNERSHIP OF OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
All materials that are part of the Service (including, but not limited to: software, computer code, technology, visual interfaces, graphics, images, videos, design, text, information, data, music, sound) (collectively the "Content") are our property or our third party licensors' property. The Content is protected by all relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights and applicable laws.
The term "HeatWave Games," the HeatWave Games logo, logos of the Games, and the names of the Games are trademarks and service marks of, and are owned by HeatWave Games. You may not use or display such trademarks in any manner, except as expressly set forth in these Terms of Service. All third party trademarks and service marks appearing on the Websites or in the Games are the property of their respective owners and all rights therein are reserved.
- Our Games may include in-app purchases that allow you to buy subscriptions or extra content (such as in-game currency, a full game unlock, or bonus content) in the game ("In-App Purchases"). In-App Purchases are processed by third party companies including, but not limited to Apple Inc. and Google Inc. ("App Store Providers"). Whilst you cannot switch off In-App Purchases from being offered to you within the Games and there is no cap on the number of In-App Purchases you can make, you can switch off/manage your ability to complete In-App Purchases by altering the settings on the device you use to play the Games. You acknowledge and agree that you are fully responsible for managing your In-App Purchases and the amount you spend on In-App Purchases within the Games.
- If you are under 18 years of age, then you must have your parents' or guardians' permission to make any In-App Purchases in the Games. By completing an In-App Purchase in any of the Games, you are confirming that you have any and all permission that may be necessary in order to allow you to make that In-App Purchase.
- In-App Purchases can only be consumed or used within the game they have been purchased in. If you make an In-App Purchase, that In-App Purchase cannot be cancelled after you have initiated the purchase. In-App Purchases cannot be redeemed for cash or other consideration or otherwise transferred. If you make any In-App Purchases in the Games, then the App Store Provider's terms and conditions/EULA applicable to In-App Purchases will also apply.
- If any In-App Purchase is not successfully downloaded or does not work once it has been successfully downloaded, we will, after becoming aware of the fault or being notified of the fault by you, investigate the reason for the fault. We will act reasonably in deciding whether to provide you with a replacement In-App Purchase or issue you with a patch to repair the fault. In no event will we charge you anything further to replace or repair the In-App Purchase. In the unlikely event that we are unable to replace or repair the relevant In-App Purchase or are unable to do so within a reasonable period of time and without significant inconvenience to you, we will authorize the App Store Provider to refund you an amount up to the cost of the relevant In-App Purchase. Alternatively, if you wish to request a refund, you may do so by contacting the App Store Provider directly.
- You acknowledge and agree that all billing and transaction processes are handled by the App Store Provider from whose platform you downloaded the Game and are governed by the App Store Provider's terms and conditions/EULA. If you have any payment related issues with In-App Purchases, then you need to contact the App Store Provider directly.
