Bossa and UGC
11.3. To the extent that you create any UGC which is not derived from the Game or using material provided by us then this UGC shall be owned by you and this section deals with the terms for this UGC known as Independent UGC.
11.4. The terms for this Independent UGC are the same as for UGC except that for any Independent UGC you retain all intellectual property rights that you might have in it and grant Bossa an unrestricted, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and licence to use and make available any such UGC in connection with the Game in any manner or media and agree that Bossa may use, publish, edit, modify and adapt your UGC for any and all purposes relating to the Game and our business.
11.5. Once Independent UGC is made available publicly in the Game it cannot be removed by you. Independent UGC will be made available to all players of the Game and they will have the right to use your Independent UGC including modifying and building on it without requiring your permission or for payment.

11.6. Working as a Group for UGC. Through the Game Bossa may give you the opportunity to collaborate with others to make UGC (a “Group”).

If a user has their account deleted or terminated then Bossa (in its sole discretion) the remaining users will remain part of the Group. If any UGC produced by the Group is Independent UGC this will be co-owned by the Group and the terms governing Independent UGC will apply.
11.7. Once all members of a Group have confirmed that the UGC produced by the Group can be made publicly available in the Game this cannot be removed by the Group or any member if it.
11.8. Rewarding UGC. Bossa may reward users for UGC developed by them whether this is Independent UGC, UGC and whether worked on individually or part of a Group “(Rewards”). If you are in a Group the Rewards will be distributed to each current Group member at the date that the Rewards are distributed and who have registered their email addresses and contact details with Bossa to enable Bossa to distribute the Rewards. Bossa will have no liability to Group members who have left the Group or who may later join or who have failed to provide their email addresses and contact details.
11.9. The Reward system is managed by Bossa in its sole discretion and submitting UGC does not entitle you to any Reward. Rewards may be in-Game items and or money or money’s worth as decided by Bossa in its sole discretion.

12.2. Purchases of Virtual Items are subject to the terms of any TPSP through which your purchase is made. To the extent that this clause 11 conflicts with such agreement between you and the relevant TPSP in respect of your purchase of Virtual Items, the terms of your agreement with the TPSP shall prevail.
12.3. You are entitled to cancel purchases of Virtual Items you make through the Game within 14 days, and to receive a full refund.
