Because our products are digital goods delivered via Internet download we generally DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS ON IN GAME PURCHASES.

Any digital item you buy in relation with the Game is intended to enhance your performance and experience in the Game. Once you use such item you cannot return it, and thus we cannot offer a refund. If you change your mind about your purchase and you have not used the item, however, we will happily issue you a refund upon your request.

We may - at our discretion, also make an exception in case of non-delivery of the product: If your purchase does not appear in your “in game” itinerary due to a technical issue. We may require you to submit proof of transaction such as a screenshot or an invoice for your payment, etc.
