The Services provide access to User Content and contain features and functionalities that may link you or provide you with certain functionality and access to other third party content, including Web sites, directories, servers, networks, systems, information and databases, applications, software, programs, products or services, and the Internet as a whole.

I. PAID SERVICES
Weplay’s paid service plans, such as the team Gold plan, are billed in advance on a monthly basis and are non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. An upgrade from the free plan to any paid plan will immediately bill you.
All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes.
For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, the credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.
Downgrading or canceling your Service may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your Account. Weplay does not accept any liability for such loss. Downgrading your Service may be prevented without direct action from you to remove content, features, or capacity in place that exceeds the content, features, or capacity offered by the lesser plan.
Weplay reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, one or more paid service plans (or any part thereof) with or without notice. Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly subscription plan fees, are subject to change upon 30 days notice by Weplay.
