All information that you provide in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, PayPal, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred.

For Digital Items, your order will represent an offer to us to purchase a license for the relevant services which may be accepted by us when we make the Digital Items available in your account for you to use in our applications or debit your credit card, whichever comes first. Your license to Digital Items for use in Relay applications is a service provided by Relay that commences upon acceptance by Relay of your purchase or redemption of third party digital currency.

If you reside in the European Union and you purchase a product or service from Relay, you may have the right to withdraw from a purchase within seven calendar days, commencing on the day after the date of purchase (the “Cooling Off Period”), but you lose your right of withdrawal if the performance of the services begins before the end of the Cooling Off Period.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT RELAY IS NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REFUND FOR ANY REASON, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE MONEY OR OTHER COMPENSATION FOR UNUSED DIGITAL ITEMS WHEN AN ACCOUNT IS CLOSED, WHETHER SUCH CLOSURE WAS VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY.

6.2. License Grant
6.2.1. To Relay. By posting any Assets on the Service, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant, to Relay a royalty-free, sub-licensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, edit, translate, distribute, syndicate, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such Assets and your name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your Asset, in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for use in connection with the Service and Relay’s business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You affirm that any listed Assets are cleared to be sold under the applicable Licenses.
6.2.2. License Grant To Other Users. You also hereby grant each User of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your User Content through the Service, as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Terms and applicable License. You grant and/or authorize Relay to grant each User of the Service who purchases your Assets with all the rights, and subject to all the restrictions, described in the applicable License. You should review the Licenses carefully before uploading any Assets.
6.4. Asset Delivery. All Assets must be delivered immediately after purchase, with no barriers to immediate download. Whenever required all Asset files should be hosted on Relay. You must not require a Buyer to provide personal information in order to access licensed Assets.
6.5. Resolution Process for Transactions. All parties share the responsibility for making sure that purchases facilitated by our Service are satisfactory and hassle-free. Our Service hosts the resolution process for transactions when Buyers claim that their Asset was not received, or the Asset they received was different from what was described in the product listing. We may take a more active role in ensuring transaction problems are resolved; however, you understand that we are not obligated to do so. You agree to permit us to make a final decision, in our sole discretion, on any disputes. We reserve the right to fix any processing errors we discover by debiting or crediting Sellers earned credits balance.
6.6. Payouts & Earnings. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, Relay shall send requested payouts according to published timeframes, and in the method, you select during the payout setup process. Available payout methods are subject to change. Our current payment terms (rates, fees, etc.) are available here—you should check this link regularly as we may change these in our sole discretion at any time and such change will apply to all transactions that occur after the published change. Payout requests may only be made if the total amount due to you totals at least $20. Unpaid amounts due shall accrue until the next month in which the amount due is at least $20. Relay reserves the right to withhold payment or charge back to your account any amounts otherwise due to us under these Terms, or amounts due to any breach of these Terms by you, pending Relay's reasonable investigation of such breach. To ensure proper payment, you are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your account, which includes without limitation applicable tax information. If we believe that we are obligated to obtain tax information, and you do not provide this information to us after we have requested it, we may withhold your payments until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person or entity from whom we are required to obtain tax information. Any third-party fees related to returned or canceled payments due to a contact or payment information error or omission may be deducted from the newly issued payment. You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your participation in the Service. If you dispute any payment, you must notify Relay in writing within thirty (14) days of such payment. Failure to so notify Relay shall result in the waiver by you of any claim relating to such disputed payment. Payment shall be calculated solely based on records maintained by Relay. No other measurements or statistics of any kind shall be accepted by Relay or have any effect under these Terms. We may withhold any taxes or other amounts from payments due to you as required by law. To protect against the risk of liability, we may request that our payment service provider hold Seller funds based on certain factors, including, but not limited to, selling history, seller performance, the riskiness of the listing category, or the filing of a dispute claim.
7.1. Service. You understand that the Service is evolving. We may require that you accept updates to the Service and to our applications you have installed on your computer or mobile device. You acknowledge and agree that Relay may update the Service with or without notifying you. You may need to update third party software from time to time in order to receive the Service and play our applications.

Accordingly, you and Relay agree that you and Relay will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of these Terms or the Service (a “Claim”) in accordance with one of the subsections below or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by going through customer support. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.

For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration.

9.3. Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against Relay must be resolved in accordance with this Section10. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section 10 shall be considered improperly filed.

10.9. Equitable Remedies.
