By providing his bank details upon purchase, the customer authorizes GOTO GAMES to charge the amount corresponding to the price shown to his card.

In the event of an error or if the company is unable to charge the card, the sale and the order will immediately be cancelled as of right.
Any claim not made in compliance with the above procedure and within the stated periods of time will not be considered and GOTO GAMES will not accept any responsibility.
