We are Dash Games Ltd, a mobile game developer and publisher incorporated under English law (company number: 14301258), with our registered office located at 40 Weston Avenue, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, RH12 3XE (referred to hereafter as "Dash Games"). For additional information about us, please visit our website at http://dashgames.co.

Carefully review these terms of service ("Terms") as they govern your participation in our mobile game (the "Game"). Dash Games makes the Game available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.

If you wish to discuss these Terms or the Game, feel free to contact us via email at contactus@dashgames.co or by writing to the aforementioned address.

Please be aware that the Game is not sponsored, endorsed, or affiliated with Apple or Google in any manner.


CHANGES TO THESE TERMS: Dash Games reserves the right to modify these Terms. While we will inform you of significant changes, it is advisable to regularly check for updates.

CHANGES TO THE GAME: We may update the Game to comply with changes in laws, regulatory requirements, or for technical enhancements. Minor changes are unlikely to affect your use of the Game, but for more substantial alterations, advance notification will be provided.

2. Under-18s and social log-in

A. If you are under 18 and have permission to use the Game, kindly share these Terms and our Privacy Policy with your parent or legal guardian. This ensures that both you and your parent or legal guardian comprehend the terms and conditions outlined in these documents (referred to as the "PP").


B. In the future, we may introduce a log-in feature, possibly through platforms like Facebook, Google, and Apple. This feature would enable you to save your progress in the Game and play across different devices. While this feature is optional, opting to use it requires having an account with the relevant provider and adhering to that provider's terms and conditions.


3. Acceptance of these terms

A. These Terms, along with our PP, outline the guidelines for your participation in the Game, and your acknowledgment of our PP is also recognized.


B. By downloading the Game, you agree that you have read and agree to these Terms, acknowledging that they constitute a legally binding contract between you and us.


C. It is important to note that if you obtained the Game from the Apple App Store, no contractual relationship is established between you and Apple due to your acceptance of these Terms. Dash Games assumes sole responsibility for the Game, its content, maintenance, and support, independent of Apple. Your use of the Game is subject to Apple's terms and conditions (the "Apple Terms"), accessible at: http://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/ww/. In case of any conflict between these Terms and the Apple Terms, the Apple Terms shall take precedence.


D. If you choose a platform other than Apple, such as Google Play, as your Platform Provider, your download and usage of the Game may be governed by the terms and conditions of that platform (the "Platform Terms"). In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the Platform Terms, the Platform Terms will prevail.

4. Access to and use of the game

A. Downloading the Game:

The Game is designed to be intuitive and user-friendly. Instructions for gameplay, if needed, are provided within the Game itself.

By using the Game under license, you do not gain any intellectual property rights. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Dash Games grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to access and play the Game for personal and non-commercial entertainment. Breaching any provision of these Terms automatically terminates this license.

5. In-app purchases

A. Virtual Currency:

We may provide you with virtual coins and tokens, collectively referred to as "Virtual Items," for use within the Game to make in-app purchases. Virtual Items can be obtained through:

i. Purchasing them with real money.

ii. Receiving them as part of a promotional offer, competition, or action by us or a third party.

iii. Earning Virtual Items within the Game through gameplay.


Specific terms govern your access to and utilization of Virtual Items, outlined in paragraph 4(B) below.


B. Virtual Items' Terms:

The in-game service allowing you to acquire and use Virtual Items is subject to the following terms:

i. Virtual Items are non-redeemable and non-refundable (i.e., they must be used within the Game and have no real monetary value).

ii. Any balance of Virtual Items displayed in the Game, your Apple account, or through another Platform Provider or online wallet related to the Game does not represent a real-world balance or stored value that can be converted to real money. It signifies the extent of your limited license to use those Virtual Items for in-app purchases within the Game.

iii. Virtual Items are personal and non-transferable; you cannot gift, sell, license, redeem, assign, transfer, or dispose of them to any other person.

iv. Your right to use Virtual Items terminates if your Apple or other Platform Provider account is suspended or closed, following these Terms, Platform Terms, and/or Apple Terms (as applicable), or if we suspend or close your account. Your Virtual Items will also be lost if you don't log in via Facebook and delete the Game from your device.


C. Price:

The price for Virtual Items (the "Price") is the amount indicated within the Game at the time of purchase. If you reside in the United Kingdom or European Union, the Price includes any applicable value-added or similar sales tax. We reserve the right to modify the Price and specifications for any Virtual Item for reasons such as balancing or updating the Game, security or legal considerations, or to reflect changes in our business practices.


D. Errors and Mistakes:

Recognizing that absolute freedom from errors and incompleteness is unattainable in computer software and Game operations, please promptly notify us at contactus@dashgames.co if you identify any errors or incompleteness. You agree not to exploit such errors or incompleteness knowingly or otherwise, and we retain the right to recover any advantage gained from them, along with associated costs, damages, and expenses.


E. Cooling-Off Period:

If you are in the European Union and purchase a Virtual Item, you may be eligible for a refund during a 14-day cooling-off period, provided you haven't downloaded or used the Virtual Item. You can waive this right if you choose to download or use the Virtual Item immediately. To exercise your rights under the cooling-off period, email contactus@dashgames.co, and the Virtual Item will be removed from your account with a refund of any payments made. Refer to Apple's terms and conditions for their general refund policy and make any refund requests directly to Apple via your Apple account.


F. Promotions:

Virtual Items may be offered as part of a promotional offer, and additional terms and conditions may apply. Before participating in any promotional offer, carefully read any additional terms and conditions, as your participation implies acceptance and legal agreement to such terms.

6. In-app adverts and third party websites

A. Dash Games has the potential to generate revenue by featuring advertisements for third-party goods and/or services within the Game. This includes displaying ads that may catch your attention and prompt responses while using the Game, such as suggestions for other mobile applications you might find interesting. These advertisements may also offer additional content and features in exchange for watching them.


B. Some links, including hypertext links, within the Game may redirect you outside the Game or its hosting platform. This includes instances where you engage with an ad recommending another app, as explained in paragraph 5(A) above. Such redirection does not constitute an endorsement by Dash Games of the linked site, its operator, or its content.
