If a credit card reaches its expiration date, your continued use of the Service constitutes your authorization for Zappallas to continue billing your credit card and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. Zappallas reserves the right to terminate your account for any reason, including credit card processing issues.
Unless otherwise explicitly stated, purchases of Coins are not refundable, whether or not Coins are used. Coins are not transferable. Unused Coins may be subject to applicable U.S. state escheat law. If you terminate your account, the Coins remaining in your account will no longer be redeemable.
