Mobile Phone Purchases

You may make purchases for use in the Nitto 1320 Legends game via text messaging through your mobile phones or other wireless device. Each purchase is a one-time transaction and you will not be responsible for any subscription fees or other continuing charges. Please be aware that wireless communications are not secure and there is a greater risk that your wireless messages may be intercepted when using a wireless communications device.

You must be at least 18 years old and all purchases must be authorized on this Site or through your mobile phone. If you are not yet 18 years old, then your parent or legal guardian must authorize all wireless purchases made by you. Your parent or legal guardian may be required to send an email to Cie Studios that includes your parent's or guardian's name, address, telephone and email address, in addition to the child's name and email address as registered on this Site. Cie Studios will send a confirming email to your parent or guardian via the email address provided to verify that the parent or guardian authorizes wireless purchases made through your mobile phone. Cie Studios reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit the number or dollar volume of purchases or to refuse to honor any wireless purchases by any user if we believe there is a question about the identity or authority of the person trying to make such purchases.

All purchases will be charged by your wireless carrier and will appear on your monthly wireless phone bill. Premium messaging rates will apply, unless noted otherwise. Cie Studios, its Site and other sponsors, suppliers, vendors, advertisers and anyone related or affiliated with them, are not responsible for any wireless phone charges incurred by you or by a person with access to your mobile phone, mobile phone number, or email address.

In order to make purchases using your mobile phone, you will be directed to this Site to affirmatively consent to have Cie Studios charge your wireless carrier for all game purchases. You will be asked for your mobile phone number (or wireless email address) and will be asked to click the consent statement on this Site. You must also agree to these Terms of Use and this Site's Privacy Policy. Instead of consenting on this Site itself, you can send a specific word or code via a text message to a designated telephone number to authorize Cie Studios to charge your wireless carrier for all game purchases.

In either case, Cie Studios will send you a confirmation message to your designated mobile phone number. When you receive the confirmation, you must respond to the confirmation message with a text message that states "race" to confirm that you agree to be responsible for all purchases made from that mobile phone number (or wireless email address). Until you respond, you will not be able to make game purchases using your mobile phone.

You may revoke your consent to make future purchases from your mobile phone at any time by sending a text message that says "STOP". Cie Studios will send a reply message with a confirmation that your consent has been canceled. Cie Studios may also terminate your ability to make wireless purchases at any time, without liability, and without advance notice.

Cie Studios may establish various policies and procedures for making wireless purchases, including spending cap limits on a per shortcode monthly basis. Until revised in the future, you may not purchase more than $35 of premium charges per day and 10 total orders or $100 of premium charges per month. Your wireless carrier may also set its own spending cap limits, including "hard cap" limits which cannot be exceeded.
