If we conclude that you are not eligible to purchase a Gift Card through us, we will reject your Gift Card order.
If you properly fulfil the requirements of clause 6.1 and there are no circumstances for us to exercise our right referred to in clause 6.2, we will automatically calculate and offer on our behalf a price in Virtual Assets, which you should pay to us to purchase the desirable Gift Card. Such an offer generated by us is valid and binding for us for the time period indicated in our offer. Application of any discount is at our absolute discretion. Please contact us to get to know more about what discounts are applicable at the moment and under what conditions.
You can confirm (accept) the offer generated by us to purchase a desirable Gift Card within the time period indicated in our offer, by rewriting the quantity of Virtual Assets specified in the offer to us, in the predefined manner. The quantity of Virtual Assets to be rewritten must be of a sufficient amount and free and clear of any liens, charges or encumbrances as well as the ownership of the Virtual Assets must belong to you.
Once a sufficient amount of Virtual Assets is rewritten in our name, we will as soon as reasonably possible send to you (or to a receiver specified by you) the unique codes/identifiers constituting the Gift Card purchased by you.
Unique codes/identifiers constituting the Gift Card purchased by you will be sent to the e-mail address indicated in your Gift Card order to us.

In case of overpayment, you will be considered as having confirmed your will to purchase a desirable Gift Card and conclude a respective Gift Card Purchase and Sale Agreement. The overpaid amount (in excess of the requested amount), upon your request to us, may be refunded to you, after deduction of the applicable fees and other costs.
Once a sufficient amount of Virtual Assets is rewritten in our name, you cannot denounce a respective Gift Card Purchase and Sale Agreement as it is considered concluded and discharged.
We reserve the right to determine minimum and/or maximum values of Gift Cards that can be purchased through us, by indicating such restrictions on the Website. We shall also reserve the right to determine the minimum amount that can be refunded under the clauses 6.7 and 6.8 above.

The amount of time required to process a sending (referred to in clause 6.5 above) of the unique codes/identifiers constituting the Gift Card and any refunds referred to in clauses 6.7 and 6.8 above will depend on various factors, including the performance of third parties. We make no guarantee as to when a purchased Gift Card and any refunds will become available to you.
