games and purchase apps, a lot of those kids have been making in app purchases coins and everything to enhance their game play. the reason why amazon has to pay that money back is because the court ruled that they didn't reach the threshold needed to make sure that that parents were aware of these purchases and that they gave permission for these purchases. so, now a lot of amazon -- amazon is having to pay a lot of parents back for some of this money which is great because game developers took advantage of these lax standards and oftentimes tricked kids into not knowing if something was free or exactly how much something cost when they were playing these games. so, now amazon is having to make sure they get all that money back in the hands of the parents that lost it. >> and real quick, if parents have not yet filed for a refund they still have time to to so? >> reporter: yeah, they have a year to do so. so, check tur in box and reach out to amazon if you think you should be eligible and you haven't received a message yet. >> okay, thanks hillary. good to see you. we'll see you tomorrow. >> reporter:
