If you purchase Paradox Content from a third party, your purchase is with that third party and not with Paradox. Please contact such third party should you have any questions or complaints regarding such purchase.

These Terms of Sale may be modified at any time in Paradox’s sole discretion. When we revise these Terms of Sale we change the "Last Updated date” above and post the revised Agreement at https://www.paradoxplaza.com/legal.

Paradox may offer Paradox Content for individuals between the age of 13 and 18, but it sells them to adults only who can make purchases with a credit card or other such payment means online. Should you be under the age of 18, you must have your parent’s or guardian’s consent before making any purchase.
