We reserve the right to add a fee to any purchase made. This fee is taken automatically through the PayPal transaction process. This fee can change at any point, with or without notice. Any fees applied to a premium resource purchase are not to be charged back against in any circumstances. In the event that the resource is unavailable for download, you must contact the author or skUnity. Do not chargeback in any means.

We reserve the right to control and set minimum and maximum prices for a resource, including being able to apply promotions/discounts to purchases without compensation to the original author. skUnity may provide users with gift cards, points or other currencies that can be redeemed against Premium Resources, in the event of purchase through these means, there will be no compensation or transfer of any value from gift cards, skUnity Points, or other non-fiat currencies.

The Author Support Programme ("the programme"), is a service in which skUnity encourages users when downloading resources to donate to the author. The author is responsible for providing skUnity with a valid PayPal address. By default, the programme will have the supporting user send funds to skUnity. The author will have 90 days to claim the funds available to them. After the 90 days have passed, skUnity will become the holder of the funds and will only be released under the discretion of skUnity. skUnity Points can also be used to show support for an author. skUnity Points will go directly to the author's skUnity Points balance.
