Refunds Policy - Donations

All transactions sent to GGS.SX via our donation page are as implied 'donations'. Donations are NON-REFUNDABLE. Transactions cannot be altered, transferred or substituted after the final transaction.

By attempting to reverse or dispute a transaction made, GGS.SX will automatically ban the associated Steam and Paypal account from our services to protect GGS.SX until the claim is withdrawn by the offending account holder. If such cases are lodged and are closed by Paypal not as the result of the offending account holder reversing the dispute, GGS.SX reserves the right to refuse service to the offending account for maliciously attempting to defraud GGS.SX and hinder our sites normal operations. By submitting a payment to this site, you agree to these terms. For more information, please read the Paypal User Agreement.
