9. Virtual Property
You have no property interest in any virtual currency, items or other property (collectively “Virtual Property”) that you obtain or purchase through or in connection with the Services. Any purchase or acquisition of Virtual Property is the purchase of a limited, non-transferable, revocable licence to use that Virtual Property within the Services. You may not transfer or resell Virtual Property for commercial gain. Virtual Property has no real-world monetary value, and cannot be refunded or exchanged for cash or any other tangible value (regardless of whether you use the Virtual Property). If your Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, or if Ratrod discontinues the applicable Service, all Virtual Property is unconditionally forfeited.
You must follow the instructions provided by the Services to obtain Virtual Property. This may include making a payment and providing personal and financial information (and you must ensure that this information is accurate and complete). The price paid for Virtual Property (including any applicable taxes) will be as set out in the Services. Ratrod may change the prices of Virtual Property at any time at its discretion.
You may only acquire Virtual Property from Ratrod, and you must not sell or transfer Virtual Property to any third party.
