If you participate and successfully complete a specified Challenge / Challenges, then as a reward you may earn what we call ‘Ink’ (and/or an INKR Extra Day Pass, find out more below). Ink is a form of virtual currency which can be used to buy INKR Coins (defined below) and/or INKR Extra Day Pass (defined below) at the trade/exchange rate determined by INKR and specified on the INKR Platform. INK shall have no real-life monetary value and is non-transferrable, non-exchangeable, exclusively meant for personal use, revocable, and non-refundable. All INKs are valid for a limited time only and shall be subject to applicable terms and conditions in relation to a specific Challenge, as determined by INKR, at its sole discretion. All unutilized INKs will expire immediately upon expiry of 30 days period (unless otherwise specified) or upon termination of your account and/or suspension or termination of the Services, whichever is earlier. We will notify our Ink holders via push notification/email/both in advance when their unutilized Inks are about to expire. Please note, INKR reserves the right to change the trade/exchange rate from "INK" to "INKR Coins" as well as determine how many times or how frequently users can trade "INK" with "INKR Coins".
Please note you must have a valid account on the INKR Platform and should be logged in to be able to participate in the Challenges and to receive or use Ink.
We reserve the right to suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the use of Ink model with respect to any or all users, at any time by giving a prior notice. You acknowledge that we may do so at our sole discretion. In such an event, all unused Ink will expire forthwith on the specified suspension / discontinuance date.
8.4. INKR Coins. As part of Services promotion or otherwise, we may make available for purchase and/or as a reward for our non-INKR Extra users/ free users, virtual currency in the form of coins, which can be redeemed by you to access certain locked premium content / chapter via the INKR Platform or to buy INKR Extra Day Pass (defined below) ("INKR Coins"). INKR Coins may only be redeemed through the Service via the in-app purchase feature and shall have no real-life monetary value. The INKR Coins are non-transferrable, non-exchangeable, exclusively meant for personal use, revocable, and non-refundable. All INKR Coins are valid for a limited time and shall be subject to applicable Service promotional terms and conditions as determined by INKR at its sole discretion. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, if any locked content ceases to be available via the Service within 07 days of its redemption and unlocking by you (“Affected Content”), using your ‘purchased’ Coin(s) using real-world money, you may request for refund of the applicable INKR Coin purchase price, within 30 days of unlocking of the said Affected Content, by writing to us at [email protected].

a) The frequency and number of advertisements shown on the INKR Platform for an INKR Extra Day Pass holder may be more as compared to an INKR Extra subscriber;
b) No downloading of content is permitted for offline reading;
Please note that INKR reserves the right to change/withdraw/suspend the INKR Extra Day Pass duration slabs (i.e. 01 / 03 / 07 consecutive days) at any given time.
