Scope of application of the Terms
Special provisions for the acquisition of fee-based services
Users must have a registered user account for the use of fee-based services.
Users will submit their offers for concluding a contract on the acquisition of fee-based services by selecting the total of the "fee-based services" they would like to acquire in the respective offer in the Catan Universe and clicking on the appropriate buttons labelled “jetzt kaufen” ("Buy now") or similar. Prior to clicking this button, input errors may be corrected by using the browser’s back button.
The contract will come into existence upon receipt of an order confirmation from USM or from the respective sales platform, where such service is offered, and no later than upon USM crediting the fee-based service to the user’s account.
The purchase price for the fee-based services is paid via a service provider integrated by USM. The methods of payment in each case are indicated to users at the respective game in the Catan Universe. Users acknowledge the fact that regularly a contract comes into existence with the selected payment service provider on performing the transaction in accordance with the provisions of the relevant payment service provider.
Where users acquire fee-based services via the Google Play Store, Amazon App Store, Microsoft or a similar platform ("third-party platform"), the terms of such third-party platform will apply supplementarily to these Terms.
Special provisions for concluding subscriptions subject to a fee
Upon concluding fee-based subscriptions ("Subscriptions"), for the (minimum) term selected users are granted access to special advantages in the Catan Universe (for example, special functions, areas not generally accessible), which are not provided to non-subscribers.
Users select the (minimum) subscription term and thus the price payable. The provisions on concluding the contract and the payment methods under Articles 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 shall apply accordingly. The amounts payable for the membership must be paid in advance at the beginning of the respective membership term.
