Virtual Coins, Diamonds, and Gifts
We offer a feature allowing you to purchase coins (“Coins”) for use in the Kumu Platform and/or (b) virtual gifts (“Gifts”) (Coins and Gifts are collectively referred to as “Virtual Items”). Your purchase of any of the Virtual Items must be made lawfully, under legitimate means, and with real currency. The Coins that you purchased will not expire.
Notwithstanding your purchase or possession of Virtual Items, you acknowledge and agree that the amounts of any Virtual Items do not refer to any credit balance of real currency, e-money, or its equivalent.
You acknowledge that your purchase and/or receipt of Virtual Items grants you a limited license to use the Kumu Service, including software programs that may manifest themselves as these items, according to the terms and conditions we may provide from time to time. You will not be able to sell Virtual Items in exchange for virtual currency, e-money, or real currency, nor will you be able to receive a refund of virtual currency, e-money, or real currency for Virtual Items.
You acknowledge that Coins are not a digital currency, security, commodity, or any kind of financial instrument. You can only pay in cash (via authorized payment methods) in exchange for Coins. You are not allowed to accept Coins as payment for goods and services or to discharge (whether partial or full) any form of debt. In case there is a reasonable ground for Kumu to believe that you have breached any of the conditions provided in this section, Kumu reserves the right to immediately restrict you from receiving Coins from other Kumu Users.
You acknowledge and agree that your distribution of any Gifts currently in your account (i.e. as a virtual “tip” to any other User’s account) may result in some revenue to the recipient Kumu User. You further agree that once you have confirmed a purchase of Coins and/or transfer of a Gift to another Kumu User’s account, the action cannot be undone and the Virtual Item cannot be withdrawn. We make no guarantee or claim that the amount or value of the Virtual Items you may give a Kumu User will correlate to the revenue such a Kumu User may receive.
Your purchase of Virtual Items is a completed transaction upon our confirmation of electronic payment from you via the iTunes App Store, Google Play, or other channels.
We may deduct Coins from your wallet if we have a reasonable ground to believe that you have obtained the Coins fraudulently or that the sender of the Virtual Item that you received has used Coins obtained fraudulently. In such a case, we will inform you of our decision. If you have concerns, you may reach us at email@example.com. The deduction of the Coins is without prejudice to our other rights and remedies that are provided by these Terms and applicable laws.
Should your access to the Kumu Platform be suspended, limited, or terminated due to your violation of these Terms, we have the right at our sole discretion to exhaust and invalidate any and all Coins in your account, in addition to other remedies available to us under law or contract.
The price of the Coins, the value (i.e. the exchange rate for Coins) of the Gifts, and the revenue share described are determined by us in our absolute and sole discretion, based on your country of origin. We reserve the right to modify these rates from time to time.
By your use of the Kumu Service, you confirm your understanding and acceptance of the rates of any Virtual Items which shall be the current rate at the time of your purchase of said Virtual Items.
If you disagree with any part of, or do not fully understand the price of the Coins, or our rate policy, please refrain from purchasing or using any Virtual Items.
You will be able to monitor your Virtual Items through the Kumu Platform. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding purchases and/or payments regarding the Kumu Platform, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Virtual Diamonds Payouts
The Gifts that you receive on the Kumu Platform will result in the receipt of virtual diamonds in your Kumu User’s account.
Any virtual diamonds stored in your account which is equal to or greater than the value of fifty thousand (50,000) diamonds, may entitle you to receive a certain amount in Real Currency. Such amount shall represent your revenue share from the sale of the Virtual Items purchased by Kumu Users using Coins and thereafter given to you (the “Rev Share”). The value of any Real Currency received from any Rev Share shall be determined by the rate at the time of the payout of such Rev Share, which we may set and change from time to time in our sole and absolute discretion. The exchange rate may also change due to the fluctuating price of the Coins, which are subject to change between the time when they were purchased and the time of the payout of the Kumu User’s Rev Share.
Virtual Items given as rewards: There may be instances where we reward you with Virtual Items without any cost to you. You understand and agree that Virtual Items given to you as rewards, or as part of a loyalty or promotional program, may be given subject to certain terms and conditions, including but not limited to expiration dates.
