At the request of the Licensee, the Licensor shall grant the Licensee the right to use Units of Usage Rights (or a quantity of Units of Usage Rights which exceeds that normally received in the Game by other Licensees), for which the Licensee shall pay a license fee defined in the game and which shall allow the Licensee to use additional, advanced, or special features of the Game (game character characteristics, privileges, special game items, gifts, etc.).

The Licensee is entitled to use Additional Game Functionality as soon as the corresponding license fee is transferred to the Licensor.
Usage rights for Additional Game Functionality are provided to the Licensee under a simple, non-exclusive license as determined by the number of Units of Usage Rights given to the Licensee by the Licensor.

The Licensee acknowledges that in the course of gameplay, the game character's access to Additional Game Functionality (to the extent allowed by the Licensee's quantity of Units of Usage Rights) may be terminated in accordance with this Agreement (as a result of these Units' consumption, theft by other game characters, suspension/termination of access to the Game, etc.) or for other reasons and that this does not require the Licensor to refund the license fee paid by the Licensee for access to such Additional Game Functionality.
9.3. The moment the Licensee has the right to use Additional Game Functionality is the moment in which Units of Usage Rights are credited to the Licensee's in-game personal account.

9.7. When paying a license fee for the right to use Units of Usage Rights for Additional Game Functionality, the Licensee shall follow the payment instructions regarding payment methods and procedure, including the rules for message contents and recipient short numbers for sending a text message (SMS) and the use of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and input language. The Licensee's right to use Additional Game Functionality is provided when the provided payment instructions and conditions are fulfilled. The Licensor shall not be liable for any failure on the part of the Licensee to follow any payment conditions. If the Licensee has any questions regarding the procedure and rules related to using payment systems for replenishing his or her personal account balance, he or she should contact the legal persons in authority over such payment systems.
9.8. The provision of rights to use Additional Game Functionality to the Licensee is subject to the full payment for such rights by the Licensee in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. In this regard, the Licensor has the right not to present such rights to the Licensee, or to present them in only a limited quantity, until the former has received confirmation of payment.
9.9. If, due to a technical error or malfunction of the Game or by the deliberate action(s) of the Licensee, he or she has obtained access to Additional Game Functionality without obtaining the rights of use in accordance with the procedure set forth in this Agreement, the Licensee agrees to communicate this fact to the Licensor and either pay the cost of the rights of usage to the Licensor or take measures to cancel all of the effects of such illegitimate use of the Additional Game Functionality. The Licensor shall have the right to independently cancel such effects without notifying the Licensee (by deleting in-game valuables, reducing character levels, etc.).
9.10. The Licensee shall retain proof of payment of electronic conversion of funds into Units of Usage Rights for Additional Game Functionality during the whole duration of his or her participation in the Game and shall, upon request of the Licensor, provide it with these documents, as well as with information about the specific circumstances related to the Licensee's payment.
9.11. The Licensee is obligated to monitor the status of his or her account.
9.12. The right to distribute Additional Game Functionality belongs exclusively to the Licensor, and therefore no proposal by third parties regarding usage rights for Additional Game Functionality or access rights to this functionality should be regarded by the Licensee as an offer originating from the Licensor.
In case of any dispute, ambiguous situations, or any offers from third parties sent to the Licensee relating to payment for usage rights for Additional Game Functionality or placement of advertisements and offers of these rights on the Internet (with the exception of those on the Licensor's Resources), the Licensee shall immediately notify the Licensor.
If the Licensee violates this provision and makes a payment connected with the aforementioned advertisement using the details specified therein, no claims from the Licensee on the Licensor regarding access to Additional Game Functionality shall be accepted, and the Licensor shall not provide any financial compensation to the Licensee for the money spend by the latter under these circumstances.

9.14. Using Units of Usage Rights for Additional Game Functionality does not release the Licensee of his or her obligation to comply with this Agreement and the Rules and does not preclude the use of specific measures or penalties in reaction to his or her violation of the conditions of this Agreement, including the Licensor's full or partial termination of the Licensee's access to the Game or to Additional Game Functionality. In such case, the Licensor shall not provide financial compensation to the Licensee for any license fee paid by the latter for rights to use Units of Usage Rights for Additional Game Functionality.
9.15. The Licensee warrants to the Licensor that he or she has the right to use the financial means he or she selects to use for the purchase of usage rights for Additional Game Functionality and has not thus violated the legislation of the Russian Federation and/or the legislation of another country of which the Licensee is a citizen, nor has he or she violated the rights of any third parties. The Licensor shall not be liable for any damages to third parties and/or other Licensees resulting from the use by the Licensee of financial means not belonging to him or her.
9.16. The Licensor shall not be liable for any unlawful acts of the Licensee when the latter is making payment for the rights to use Additional Game Functionality.

The Licensee cardholder making such payment shall, upon request from the Licensor, provide a copy of the necessary documents to confirm that the Licensor's use of the bank card is lawful. In case of the Licensee's failure to provide documents within 14 days from the date the payment was submitted, or if there is doubt about the documents' authenticity, the Licensor is entitled to suspend the Licensee's access to the Game and Additional Game Functionality in order to conduct an investigation.
