G2A.COM is obliged to prepare reliable product descriptions, corresponding to the product’s content. The product descriptions are available for every product under the tab „product details”. However, G2A.COM assumes no responsibility for the compliance of the product description with its content, in a situation when the Seller or the Selling User misinforms G2A.COM regarding the product, its access to a given gaming platform, etc. The Seller and the Selling User hereby entitle G2A.COM to use the information defined here and provided by them free of charge, to prepare descriptions of products being sold, including modifications, alterations, translation of this content into other languages, etc.
5.10 G2A.COM shall provide the Users and the Sellers with technical support in case of encountering problems with the functionality of the Site or Account.
5.11 In case of a purchase transaction, in connection to which the payment is performed by Users by means of a credit card, G2A.COM accepts and assumes (together with the Seller) responsibility against the User for a product sold by the Seller in the form of a game-key. G2A.COM assumes responsibility against Users for the sold product in terms of order compliance, correct functioning, potential physical and legal faults as well as prompt delivery. G2A.COM’s responsibility concerns solely these products, for which the Users pay to the Seller by means of a credit card. The responsibility described here does not constitute taking over the Sellers’ responsibility by G2A.COM. It only concerns participation in this responsibility in the scope mentioned above which means in particular that the Seller still assumes the responsibility against the User in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Participation in the responsibility does not mean that G2A.COM becomes the owner or co-owner of the product sold by the Seller (nor that G2A.COM is to be so treated) – the Seller remains the exclusive owner of the sold product.
5.12 Every User may purchase access to the security program for buyers („G2A Shield”). The fee for G2A Shield is displayed for each given product and is exclusive for individual products, in connection to which the User bought the G2A Shield. Every User may remove the G2A Shield option during the purchase, simply by unchecking the G2A Shield box. In the said case the fee for G2A Shield shall not be added. G2A Shield allows the User to receive the replacement product in case the purchased product was faulty or different from the description. If such a replacement cannot be granted the User who bought the G2A Shield shall receive a full refund for the said purchase. The User will also receive exclusive access to Livechat support and G2A Price Match. G2A Shield does not transfer responsibility for any product from the Seller or from the Selling User to G2A.COM – it is an additional service that gives G2A Shield Users additional protection independently from the responsibility of the Seller/Selling User for the product and ultimate responsibility for the product always lies with the Seller/Selling User.
5.13 The User may choose to purchase a G2A Shield membership (the “membership”). The membership is free of charge for one month from the purchase (“initial term”) and shall last for undefined period of time unless earlier terminated by User. After the initial term is lapsed the User shall pay to Company the remuneration in the amount of 1 EUR (+VAT/GST/HST – if applicable - and fees due to payment services providers) per each month. If the User does not want to continue the membership after the initial term he/she needs to unselect membership in his/hers account panel which can be done only during the last two days of the initial term. After the initial term the membership can be terminated at any time. If the User deactivates the membership and after that he/she decides to purchase the membership again then the remuneration due to the Company amounts to 2 EUR (+VAT/GST/HST – if applicable - and fees due to payment services providers) per each month and shall be paid each time he/she purchases the membership. The aforesaid remuneration for the membership will be automatically deducted from the User’s credit card or G2A Wallet or any other available funds and the User accepts this.
5.13.1 The User that elects to purchase a membership, in addition to the standard benefits of G2A Shield shall be entitled to the following benefits, subject to these Terms and Conditions: a) reduced conversion fees for G2A Coins; b) free G2A Coin transfers;
and c) Shield cashback.
5.14 Each User who purchases the membership shall receive a full refund or the replacement product in case the purchased product was faulty or different from the description, regardless the product was purchased on the Site or from the Merchant integrated within G2A.COM ecosystem. However, to benefit from the membership the product must be purchased with G2APay solution. For the avoidance of doubt the “Merchant integrated within G2A.COM ecosystem” shall mean a third party (business entity) operating an online shop who has integrated G2APay solution within this online shop. To get the refund the User has to contact with G2A Shield specialist via Livechat communicator. The refund or replacement product shall not be granted if the User’s account was blocked or deleted or the User’s access to the Site was blocked due to violation of this Terms and Conditions.
5.15 G2A reserves the right to refuse to issue a replacement or refund if in G2A’s sole discretion G2A detects that a User has engaged in fraud, deception or abuse of the G2A Shield. Moreover, in the event that G2A detects a User has engaged in fraud, deceit or abuse after the issuance of a refund G2A reserves the right to reverse any refund already issued including withdrawal of any funds in said User’s G2A Wallet.
5.16 The time to process User’s refund request depends on the User’s rating and his buying history in G2A.COM ecosystem. The said rating is created by Users. For each transaction, Users can choose to rate each other by leaving a comment. Buyers can leave a positive, negative, or a neutral rating, negative or neutral rating plus a short comment. Sellers/Selling Users can leave a positive rating and a short comment.
a) Each User who has made a purchase covered with G2A Shield or G2A Shield membership (the “Privileged User”) can use the G2A Price Match service (“G2A Price Match”).

b) G2A Price Match entitles the Privileged User to receive a difference between the price paid for the product marked with “Lowest Price” tag (“Lowest Price”) and the price of the same product (including model, version, date of release and the whole content) offered at onlineshop(s) being authorized sellers of such product or at online shop with daily visitors amount exceeding five thousand (“online shop(s)”) if the Lowest Price is higher than the price offered at online shop(s), provided however that the difference the Privileged User may receive shall not be greater than 10% of the Lowest Price.
