Please be certain to use such products and services, where you have determined in good-faith that they are in compliance with associated governing laws and regulations.

Persons Not Eligible

The Company specifically reserves the right to disqualify any person that, in its sole discretion, it determines to have attempted to defraud the Company or otherwise abuse the Company and/or its products and services, including, but not limited to, violations of these TOS or misrepresentation of identity. The Company reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permissible by law.

Patterns of Play

The Company reserves the right to monitor the Game unit and Site usage transmissions and to limit access to on-line functionality. Patterns of play which the Company believes, at its sole discretion, to constitute abuse of the Game in general may result in sanctions against that player on the Game and Site.

Condition of Equipment

Just as in traditional sports, the quality of equipment can affect the outcome of play. The Company does not own or maintain Game units in normal operation and cannot be responsible for their condition. You are advised that the conditions of Game units may vary.

Free and Fair Competition

You may compete against players with varying abilities who reside throughout the country, or world. Players are required to conduct themselves in the spirit of free and fair competition. Any specific requirement or restriction herein notwithstanding, actions unrelated to the reasonable and ordinary play of the Game which are meant to affect the outcome, or actions meant to increase a player’s odds of winning or improving their placement unrelated to the actual play of that player on the Game, are strictly prohibited! This includes, but is not limited to, actions which alter Game hardware or software, circumvent mechanical limitations, skill divisions, handicapping systems, entry requirements and/or restrictions, and/or other systems which place players into various classifications based on skill, play history, and/or experience. It does not include the use of optional in-game equipment or the mere exercise of natural talent or developed skill in the ordinary course of play. Players who demonstrate a pattern of actions not within the spirit of free and fair competition, in the sole judgment of the Company, may be suspended or banned from play.

Sportsmanship

You agree that the Company has the right to maintain a sporting environment at its sole discretion and that players are required to maintain a reasonable level of honorable and sporting behavior in relation to the Game, and related social environments. Players who create vulgar or offensive account identifiers of any kind, or who consistently demonstrate tendencies to conduct themselves in an un-sportsmanship like manner which lowers the quality of the Game experience for other players, may be suspended, sanctioned or banned.

Rankings and Classification Ratings

The Game and/or Site may assign you to a ranking and/or classification rating based on skill level and experience, automatically, based on various factors. These rankings and classification ratings will be assigned to maximize free and fair competition, are subject to change at any time, and may change dynamically without prior notice. You agree that rankings and classification ratings are an understood part of play on the Game and agree that the Company is under no obligation to disclose its methods of assigning rankings and classification ratings, and that they are a confidential trade secret.

The Company reserves the right to collect general demographic and other market information that does not personally identify you to any person without additional consent.

The Company reserves the right to publish the name or alias you supply for use on public leader board lists or for other obviously public purposes.
