  4. USAGE FEES

    Unless otherwise stated, the use of service offered is free of charge. The user may, however, purchase individual service offerings and individual features offered in the context of Zorg Empire. The user is informed separately on the kind of features for purchase, especially what function each feature has, possibly of the duration of availability of the feature for purchase, the purchase price and the available payment method in connection with the game.

    Where a minor wishes to buy features for purchase, he assures that he/she received the funds to buy the features for purchase from his/her legal guardian for this purpose or for unrestricted use. The agreed-upon charges are due for payment with the conclusion of the contract. The debit payment is made typically through the respective authorized service provider, whereby the withdrawal can be made a few days in advance to guarantee continuous usability. In individual cases, general terms and conditions included by the authorized service provider may be applicable.

    The user assures that all information provided in the context of a payment transaction (including bank, credit card number, etc.) is complete and correct.

    The payment options vary according to the participant country and the market availability of technically feasible payment options. Zorg Empire reserves the right to amend its payment options.

    Zorg Empire reserves the right to change the fees of the in-game features (including virtual currencies). This includes Zorg Empire`s right to increase or decrease fees for all singular in-game features for all future transactions.

    In case of default, statutory interest accrues. Zorg Empire is also entitled to block the user account, to recover damages and to terminate services.

    Should Zorg Empire through a fault of the user (including an inadequate account balance) incur back charges or cancellation fees, the user shall bear the related costs. Zorg Empire is allowed to request these costs and the accrued charges. If payment is made by credit card, back charges are incurred up to 50 EUR per credit card transaction plus bank charges incurred by Zorg Empire. Zorg Empire is entitled to charge further compensation.
