    8. Sanctions in cases of abuse
      1. In cases of abusive behaviour on the part of a player, the Operator reserves the right to terminate the agreement with immediate effect. Furthermore, the Operator is entitled to cancel ongoing games and ban the player from the App, with or without prior notice, and delete and/or withhold any credit.
    9. Termination and deletion of data
      1. Both contractual partners, i.e. both the Operator and the player, can terminate the agreement at any time with immediate effect without being required to provide a reason.

After the data is deleted, the player shall lose his/her claim to use of the App and the services, content and Credits purchased in connection with the App, which shall be deemed forfeit as of the deletion.
    10. Credits
      1. In the App, Credits can be obtained in a variety of ways and used in the games.
      2. Credits are awarded under a system described in more detail in the FAQ of the App support area. The Operator reserves the right to make changes to the system at any time.
      3. The player receives Credits free of charge but can also purchase them from the Facebook store. See section L (‘Virtual currency’) for more information on this subject.
    11. Diamonds

      2. The player can unlock various in-game functions based on the number of diamonds he/she has collected.
      3. Diamonds can never be converted to Credits.
    12. Virtual currency
      1. The Operator provides the opportunity to purchase and use Credits in the App.
      2. Obtaining Credits merely grants the player the right to use them as part of and in line with the game; the acquisition of any other rights at all (e.g. ownership) to the obtained Credits is excluded. The object of purchase is simply a temporary, localised licence – with restricted content – to use these Credits as part of and in line with the games.
      3. Regardless of the terminology used in the App or in the game, by purchasing Credits the player shall receive a temporary, localised licence – with restricted content – to use these Credits as part of and in line with the Slots in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions. Reimbursement, redemption or compensation in real money is excluded. In the event of a breach of these General Terms and Conditions, the Operator shall be entitled to revoke and declare forfeit one or all licences granted for use of the Credits. Upon the termination of the legal relationship, on whatever grounds, all licences granted for use of the Credits shall end. The Credits remaining on the date of termination shall be forfeit. The player has no entitlement to compensation.
      4. If case law in the country of the player should deem the App illegal or partially illegal, the player must refrain from using the App. Players may only purchase Credits if their countries allow the purchase of virtual currency.
      5. The player is not permitted to transfer his/her Credits to third parties. Furthermore, it is not permitted to purchase, sell or trade Credits outside of the App. Doing so shall represent a breach of these General Terms and Conditions and result in the exclusion of the player from the service of the Operator.
      6. The services of the App, any data on the servers of the Operator and any player content are the sole and unrestricted property of the Operator.
      7. The offer of Credits can be found in the App. The Operator reserves the right to alter, reduce and/or expand the offer of Credits on a continuous basis and to alter the price of Credits at any time and without justification. Furthermore and at its own discretion, the Operator is entitled to cease offering Credits or to provide them either free of charge or at a price. If it asserts this right, the Operator shall not be subject to any obligations towards the player. The player shall have no claim to compensation if his/her Credits are no longer provided or are only provided under different conditions. This applies to Credits offered on both a temporary and permanent basis. Furthermore, the Operator shall always be entitled to delete or alter the gaming account and its gaming history and Credits without providing a reason. In such cases, the player shall be entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect. Additional claims of the player are excluded.
      8. Credits are paid for via Facebook. The currency used to pay for the Credits depends on the home country of the player.
      9. Credits shall be deemed paid for if the amount is irrevocably credited to the account of the third-party provider (Facebook).
      10. The Operator reserves the right to reject allotments of Credits or limit the number of Credits or the overall amount at its own discretion. If it suspects fraud or violations against the law or these General Terms and Conditions, the Operator shall be entitled to freeze purchasing processes and the associated payment transactions until the situation is resolved. Furthermore, the provisions under section H shall apply.
    13. Tournaments
      1. The Operator shall give the player the opportunity to participate in tournaments free of charge within the App.
      2. A minimum number of Credits is required in order to participate in the tournament. The number of Credits depends on the predefined stake per spin. This stake shall be announced before the start and can no longer be changed during the tournament.
      3. The player will collect ‘stars’ over the course of the tournament. The players with the most stars at the end of the tournament will be the winners. More detailed information on how to win stars can be found under the menu item ‘Info & Pays’ within the App.
      4. The players announced by the Operator to be the winners at the end of the tournament are the winners of the tournament. The announcement of winners is subject to error. The Operator is entitled to deny Credit prizes awarded erroneously without providing a reason. The results of the tournaments are final.
      5. Credits can be won at tournaments. Credits shall be awarded at the sole discretion of the Operator, and the award process can be changed without prior notice. Under no circumstances can Credits won in tournaments be converted into material prizes, items or cash. Players can click on the ‘Info’ button to see how Credits have been awarded to the tournament participants.
      6. Players can deregister from the tournament before it starts. Leaving the tournament whilst it is running counts as deregistration from the tournament.
      7. Tournaments can be subject to special restrictions on participants. This shall be announced explicitly in the App. The player has no entitlement to participate.
  2. Liability and guarantee
    1. Claims for damages against the Operator, companies affiliated with the Operator and vicarious agents of the Operator in connection with the services and content provided in the App shall be excluded if the damage in question was not caused as a result of intent or gross negligence on the part of the Operator, companies affiliated with the Operator or vicarious agents of the Operator. This limitation of liability does not apply to physical injury.
    2. The Operator, the companies affiliated with the Operator and/or the vicarious agents of the Operator and its distribution partners for the App shall only be liable for damage beyond the ambit of the Austrian Produkthaftungsgesetz (PHG – ‘product liability act’) as stipulated by the statutory provisions.
    3. The Operator accepts no liability for any type of damage caused as a result of abuse of the App by the player. Moreover, the Operator accepts no liability for any type of damage caused as a result of abuse of the App by third parties (i.e. persons other than the Operator, its vicarious agents, companies affiliated with the Operator or the player), provided that the abuse by the third party was not caused by gross negligence or intent on the part of the Operator.
    4. The Operator accepts no liability for any damage caused by circumstances beyond its influence (force majeure etc.).
    5. In the event of a breach of these General Terms and Conditions, the player shall be obliged to immediately inform the Operator accordingly. In the event of a breach of these General Terms and Conditions, the player shall also be obliged to indemnify the Operator against consequent damage and third-party claims and provide compensation for losses, expenses or damage resulting from this. This does not limit the duty of the Operator to mitigate losses.
  3. Miscellaneous provisions
    1. The Operator assures that the generation of the random numbers is based on an internationally accepted random generator and that the generation is in no way influenced by the Operator. More information on the random generator can be requested using the support form in the App.
    2. The current version of these General Terms and Conditions can be found by clicking on the link ‘General Terms and Conditions’ in the App. The player undertakes to remain informed about the current version of these General Terms and Conditions.
