The Payee shall be liable for any damage or loss resulting from a breach of these obligations.
- The Payee shall be fully responsible for processing all full and partial refunds and other reimbursements in connection with payments accepted by it. This includes processing refunds required due to chargebacks, incorrect payments, or other reasons. Payee shall ensure that all refunds are processed properly and in a timely manner and that all required documentation and information is provided. The payee is liable for any damages or losses incurred due to errors or delays in processing refunds.

Inactive PollUnits are PollUnits in which no voting or options have been added and no editing has been done for one year. Users, who have deposited an e-mail address, can postpone the deletion for one year and can do this every year again. For this purpose, they will be sent an e-mail 2 weeks before deletion which contains a link to the extension. We cannot guarantee that this email will arrive.
