A credit card is required for all orders. If the User has opted for annual billing, they agree to commit to a subscription period of 365 days following the confirmation of their order. The User will immediately be billed and charged the full amount for the selected plan.
By providing the credit card number and information described below, the User authorizes Krash Studio SA to debit their credit card the total amount with or without tax as indicated on the order summary.
In an effort to prevent Internet fraud, information related to the User’s order may be shared with any third party authorized by law to access it, and may be the basis for filing a complaint with the competent authorities.
Annual billing agreements (also called subscriptions) are automatically renewed without notice at the end of each billing period. The service is billed on the first day of the billing period and is not refundable. Upon automatic renewal of annual billing (also called subscription), the User is once again committed for a period of 365 days.
Orders that are not billed annually will not be automatically renewed.
No payment made for an order of any kind will be refunded.
For clients who choose annual billing (also called subscription), a plan that is downgraded or removed during their commitment period shall under no circumstances be cause for a total or partial refund.
If any order (single game, game packages or annual billing) is not used within 12 months of signing the cost estimate and/or paying the invoice, this is not grounds for a total or partial refund of the payment made.
Upgrading and downgrading
The User may not upgrade or downgrade an order that is not subject to an annual billing (also known as subscription) once the order is confirmed.
In the event a User upgrades to a more expensive plan when using annual billing (also called subscription), the new order will go into effect immediately. The user will automatically be billed and charged the full amount for the new order less the amount of the initial order, and will again be committed for a period of 365 days from the date of the upgrade.
In the event a User downgrades to a less expensive plan when using annual billing (also called subscription), the User must cancel annual billing by following the instructions below.

The User may, at any time and without conditions, cancel automatic renewal of annual billing (also called subscription) through the “Brand Page” associated with the subscription. To do so, the User must click on the link “Cancel annual billing” on the “Brand Page” associated with the subscription.
This is the only way to cancel automatic renewal of annual billing (also called subscription). Under no circumstances shall an e-mail, chat conversation, telephone call, or request in any other form constitute a request to cancel a valid automatic billing agreement.
In the event of cancellation of automatic renewal of annual billing (also called subscription), any content Krash Studio SA may have in its possession will be immediately deleted as soon as the annual billing commitment period ends. This information will be permanently deleted and irretrievable.
It is the User’s responsibility to keep track of the date when their subscription period will end.
The User may, at any time and without conditions, delete their account. To do so, the user must click the “Delete my account” link on their “My Account” page. Under no circumstances shall an e-mail, chat conversation, telephone call, or request in any other form constitute a request to delete a user account and, therefore, such requests will not be acted upon.
