We are constantly striving to enhance our Services, which means they may undergo changes over time. We reserve the right to suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, introduce new features, impose limitations on certain features, or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. While we will attempt to provide notice of any significant changes that may negatively impact you, it may not always be feasible to do so. Additionally, we retain the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time and for any reason, including allegations of Content violations, at our sole discretion and without prior notice.
The Services may be offered for free, or we may require a fee for their usage. If you are using a free version of the Services that later transitions to a paid version, we will notify you before any charges are implemented. To continue using such Services, you will need to pay all applicable fees. You are solely responsible for any charges, fees, or costs incurred. We recommend consulting with your phone carrier to determine the rates and charges that may apply to your use of the Services.
Certain Services may be subject to payment, either presently or in the future (referred to as "Paid Services"). Please refer to our Paid Services page for a description of the current Paid Services. The payment terms presented to you when using or signing up for a Paid Service are considered part of these Terms. For instance, some Paid Services may charge a fee for downloading or installing the Services via the App Store linked to your specific device. By using our mobile application, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions of the respective App Store. Any refund inquiries or issues related to applications will be handled solely by the relevant App Store in accordance with their terms and conditions.
We utilize a third-party payment processor (the "Payment Processor") to bill you through a payment account linked to your Services account (referred to as your "Billing Account") for the usage of Paid Services. The processing of payments is subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the Payment Processor, in addition to these Terms. We hold no responsibility for any errors, acts, or omissions made by the Payment Processor. By opting to use Paid Services, you agree to pay us, via the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices currently in effect for the usage of those Paid Services, according to the applicable payment terms. Furthermore, you authorize us, via the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (referred to as your "Payment Method"). You agree to make payment using the selected Payment Method. We retain the right to rectify any errors or mistakes made by the Payment Processor, even if payment has already been requested or received.
The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer, or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. In the event that we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to settle all outstanding amounts on your Billing Account upon demand.
Some Paid Services may consist of an initial period with a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed upon by you. By selecting a recurring payment plan, you acknowledge that such Services have an initial and recurring payment feature, and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges until cancellation. We may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) without further authorization from you until you provide prior notice (confirmed by us) of termination or a desire to change your Payment Method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before we reasonably had the opportunity to act. To terminate authorization or change your Payment Method, please go to your account settings.
Current Information Required
You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your Billing Account. It is your responsibility to promptly update all information to ensure the accuracy, completeness, and currency of your Billing Account (e.g., billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date). If your Payment Method is cancelled (e.g., due to loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as unauthorized disclosure or use of your username or password, you must promptly notify us or our Payment Processor. Changes to this information can be made in your account settings. Failure to provide the aforementioned information means that we may continue to charge you for any usage of Paid Services under your Billing Account unless you have terminated the Paid Services as outlined above.
Change in Amount Authorized
If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account differs from the preauthorized amount (excluding changes due to state sales tax imposition or changes), you have the right to receive prior notice of the charge amount and date before the scheduled transaction date. The agreement you have with your payment provider will govern the use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate and submit charges incurred as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
Auto-Renewal for Paid Services
Unless you opt out of auto-renewal through your account settings, any Paid Services you have subscribed to will automatically renew for successive periods of the same duration as the original subscription term, at the prevailing non-promotional rate. To modify or cancel your Paid Services at any time, go to your account settings or cancel your subscription through the subscription management section of the relevant App Store for mobile applications. If you terminate a Paid Service, you can continue using your subscription until the end of the current term, after which it will not be renewed. Please note that you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the current subscription period. To discontinue recurring monthly charges, you must cancel the applicable Paid Service through your account settings or terminate your Gigglle account before the end of the recurring term. Paid Services cannot be terminated prior to the end of the paid period, except as expressly provided in these terms. Gigglle will not refund any fees already paid, unless otherwise stated in these terms.
Reaffirmation of Authorization
Continued use or non-termination of a Paid Service reaffirms our authorization to charge your Payment Method for that Paid Service. We may submit these charges for payment, and you will be held responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, based on usage, or as otherwise specified during your initial selection of the Paid Service.
What about Mobile Applications and In-App Purchases?
Within our mobile applications, you have the option to purchase certain goods or features ("In-App Purchase") that are designed to enhance the performance of the Services. When you make an In-App Purchase, you are conducting the transaction through either the Apple iTunes service or the Google Play service, and you agree to abide by their respective Terms and Conditions. These terms and conditions can be found at http://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/us/terms.html and http://play.google.com/intl/en_us/about/play-terms.html). Gigglle is not a party to any In-App Purchase.
“GCoins' ' are a virtual currency provided by Gigglle to eligible users of the Services. If you receive GCoins from us, we grant you a non-exclusive, revocable, personal, limited, non-transferable (except as expressly stated below) right and licence to use GCoins solely as permitted by the functionality of the Services.
Eligible users of the Services may acquire GCoins (along with the licence mentioned above) through authorized means explicitly permitted by the Services. In such instances, we will credit your Services account with the GCoins acquired as authorized in these Terms. GCoins can be transferred by you to other Services users in exchange for access to virtual items, services, or content made available through the Services. All transfers must take place within the Gigglle platform using its provided functionality (meaning, you must not attempt to transfer GCoins to any person or entity outside of the Services' functionality).
GCOINS ARE NOT A REAL CURRENCY. UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED IN A SIGNED AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND GIGGLLE, GCOINS CANNOT BE REFUNDED, OR CONVERTED INTO REAL CURRENCY THROUGH REFUND. GCOINS DO NOT ACCUMULATE INTEREST. You acknowledge and agree that we may take actions that could affect the perceived value or acquisition price of GCoins at any time, except as prohibited by applicable law.
Transactions involving the exchange of GCoins for virtual items, services, or content via the Services are not legally enforceable, do not give rise to any private right of action against Gigglle or any third party, and are solely governed by us at our sole discretion and application of these Terms.
All payments for GCoins are final and non-refundable or exchangeable. You may not transfer, assign, sell, gift, exchange, trade, convert, lease, sublicense, rent, or distribute GCoins except as expressly permitted by Gigglle through the Services and as authorized by us in writing. We do not endorse or support any third-party services that facilitate the sale, exchange, transfer, or disposal of GCoins. We assume no responsibility for, and shall not be liable for, any such transactions.
Any unauthorized transfer or attempted transfer of GCoins in violation of these Terms will be null and void, resulting in immediate termination of your Service account and the revocation of your license to use GCoins. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to manage, modify, suspend, revoke, or terminate your license to use GCoins without notice, refund, compensation, or liability to you, except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law. Your license to use GCoins will terminate upon the termination of these Terms or your Services account, as provided herein, except as otherwise required by applicable law.
From time to time, Gigglle may offer rewards or incentives for referring others to the Services. For details on any current referral offers, please refer to our referral page. The referring user ("Referrer") can refer individuals or entities who are neither current customers of Gigglle nor registered users of the Services ("Referee"). A registered user is a person or entity that already has an existing account with Gigglle. There is no limit to the number of referrals that a Referrer can make, nor the cumulative rewards or incentives that the Referrer may receive through such special offers, unless otherwise specified. The Referrer will receive the stated reward or incentive for each Referee referred by them who completes the required action specified in that particular offer (such as signing up for an account or making a purchase). All Referees must be first-time recipients of the offer, and multiple referrals to the same individual or entity will be disregarded. Gigglle reserves the right to modify or terminate any special offers at any time and to revoke the special offer from the Referrer and Referee at Gigglle's discretion, for any reason or for no reason at all. If Gigglle determines that the Referrer or Referee is attempting to gain an unfair advantage or otherwise violate the terms or spirit of such special offer, Gigglle reserves the right to (a) revoke any rewards or incentives issued to either the Referrer or Referee and/or (b) charge the Referrer or Referee for any rewards or incentives that were (1) used by the Referrer or Referee prior to such revocation or (2) issued by Gigglle to any ineligible Referrer or Referee. All special offers are subject to any other terms, conditions, and restrictions set forth on the Services or presented in connection with the special offer.
