GamingTourney.com offers the Site as a common portal for its users to arrange, record, and track Challenge/tournaments, and related information, including without limitation Challenge/tournament Entrants, fees, pre-specified prizes and Challenge/tournament results.

You understand and accept that we do not provide this website or Services for Challenge/tournaments based on gambling events, sporting events, or any games of chance. Instead, GamingTourney.com provides a platform for users to arrange, conduct and track head-to-head tournaments against other GamingTourney users solely in connection with games of skill.


POSTED CHALLENGES/TOURNAMENTS

Posted Challenges/tournaments are facilitated through and posted on the GamingTourney.com website in one of two ways, and this may either be by GamingTourney.com or any other user who creates and maintains a Challenge/tournament Account.

Posted Challenge/tournaments provide a forum for Users to participate in a Challenge/tournament for a pre-specified "Prize" with other Users. To do so, you must first pay a "Challenge/tournament Entry Fee" as well as a "GamingTourney.com Service Fee" to GamingTourney.com.

The Prize will be the sum total of all Challenge/tournament Entry Fees paid by each entrant.

Challenge/tournaments posted on the GamingTourney.com website by GamingTourney.com shall be called GamingTourney.com Posted Challenge/tournaments while Challenge/tournaments posted on the GamingTourney.com website by any User who creates and maintains a Challenge/tournament Account shall be called User Posted Challenge/tournaments.

Any User who creates and maintains a Challenge/tournament Account may invite another User or Users to join in a Challenge/tournament for a pre-specified Prize by paying a Challenge/tournament Entry Fee and a GamingTourney.com. Before posting any such invitation to a Challenge/tournament for a Prize, you must have sufficient funds in Your Challenge/tournament Account to cover the Challenge/tournament Fee. Without exception, creating a User Posted Challenge/tournament shall automatically enter the User who created that Posted Challenge/tournament into that Posted Challenge/tournament.


ACCEPTING POSTED CHALLENGE/TOURNAMENTS

All Users who create and maintain a Challenge/tournament Account may enter a Posted Challenge/tournament by paying the Challenge/tournament Fee to GamingTourney.com. Prior to entering the foregoing Challenge/tournament, you must have sufficient funds in Your Challenge/tournament Account to cover the Challenge/tournament Fee. Upon entry of a Posted Challenge/tournament, GamingTourney.com will immediately withdraw the Challenge/tournament Fee from Your Account.

The first User to enter a GamingTourney.com Posted Challenge/tournament, or the User who creates a User Posted Challenge/tournament, will define a "Challenge/tournament Timeframe," which shall define when a Posted Challenge/tournament shall be completed by the Entrants.

An Accepted Challenge/tournament shall be completed by the Challenge/tournament Entrants in accordance with the Challenge/tournament Rules at a mutually agreed upon time within the Challenge/tournament Timeframe.

Failure to meet this timeframe will automatically result in a cancellation of the Accepted Challenge/tournament, and all Challenge/tournament Entry Fees collected for the Canceled Accepted Challenge/tournament will be credited to the Challenge/tournament Accounts from which they were originally drawn. No GamingTourney.com Withdrawal Fees are refunded at any time or for any reason after an Accepted Challenge/tournament is established.

When only one User has entered a Posted Challenge/tournament, such can be cancelled at any time and, notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, the Challenge/tournament Fee will be re-credited to the User’s Account.

Once two or more Users enter a Posted Challenge/tournament, the Challenge/tournament immediately becomes an "Accepted Challenge/tournament," and GamingTourney.com will immediately withdraw the Challenge/tournament Fee from all Accounts of all Entrants.

The Prize shall be the sum of all Challenge/tournament Entry Fees paid by each Entrant.

Once a Posted Challenge/tournament becomes an Accepted Challenge/tournament, the GamingTourney.com Service Fee shall become non-refundable at any time or for any reason to any Entrant. However, upon a mutual decision indicated by all Challenge/tournament Entrants to cancel the Accepted Challenge/tournament, all Challenge/tournament Entry Fees collected will be credited to the Accounts from which they were originally drawn.

All Challenge/tournaments are governed by the challenge/tournament Rules. You are responsible for ensuring that you understand and will abide by the Challenge/tournament Rules for every Challenge/tournament that you participate in, and for reviewing the Challenge/tournament Rules from time to time for any update.

Your failure to follow any updated Challenge/tournament Rules will result in an immediate and automatic forfeiture of any Accepted or Posted Challenge/tournament. Further, if GamingTourney.com learns of any User's failure to follow the Challenge/tournament Rules, we reserve the right to terminate that User's Challenge/tournament Account without notice and without liability.

All Challenge/tournament Results must be determined in strict accordance with the Challenge/tournament Rules.

If each Challenge/tournament Entrant reports the same Challenge/tournament Result, the result will be considered a "Verified Result" and the winner a "Verified Winner." If there is a conflict between any reports of the Challenge/tournament Results, the Challenge/tournament Results are otherwise contested, or if no Challenge/tournament Entrants or only one Challenge/tournament Entrant reports a result, the result will be considered a "Disputed Result." GamingTourney.com will attempt to convert each Disputed Result to a Verified Result using our Disputed Result Guidelines. Disputed Results will be tracked, scrutinized and publicly displayed.

All Challenge/tournament Results may be audited or verified by GamingTourney.com, which may occur within GamingTourney.com's sole discretion for any reason whatsoever.

Following the expiration of the Challenge/tournament Timeframe, if no Challenge/tournament Entrants have reported Challenge/tournament Results, no Verified Winner will be determined, the Accepted Challenge/tournament will be cancelled automatically, and all Challenge/tournament Entry Fees collected for the Canceled Accepted Challenge will be credited to the Challenge/tournament Accounts from which they were originally drawn. No GamingTourney.com Service Fees are refunded at any time or for any reason after an Accepted Challenge/tournament is established.

Following the expiration of the Challenge/tournament Timeframe, if only one Challenge/tournament Entrant has reported the Challenge/tournament Result, the Verified Winner will be determined in accordance with the single report and the Prize will be awarded accordingly.

In the case of a discrepancy between any of the Challenge/tournament Results reported between two or more Entrants, the company will use commercially sensible efforts to determine the Verified Winner and to award the Prize accordingly. GamingTourney.com uses a proprietary process to determine the Verified Winner and our judgment concerning the Verified Winner will be considered the final judgment. You accept that we will under no circumstances be required to disclose how the Verified Winner is determined.

We reserve the right to temporarily suspend, permanently terminate or otherwise cancel the Challenge/tournament Account of a Challenge/tournament Entrant who submits a report contrary to the Verified Winner as determined by GamingTourney.com. Any time conflicting results are reported, GamingTourney.com, in its sole discretion, may attribute such conflicting results to Your Challenge/tournament Account and publicly display the same in Your Challenge/tournament History and Your Challenge/tournament Account.

If we are unable to determine a Verified Winner, the Accepted Challenge/tournament will automatically be deemed a Canceled Accepted Challenge/tournament. In this case, all Challenge/tournament Entry Fees collected will be credited to the Challenge/tournament Accounts from which they were originally drawn. No GamingTourney.com Service Fees are refunded at any time or for any reason after an Accepted Challenge/tournament is established.

It is our policy to record and publicly display all disputed results incurred by users and associated with their Challenge/tournament Accounts. By displaying such Disputed Results, other Users can determine any user’s Challenge/tournament worthiness and integrity.

You have twenty-four hours to comment or otherwise offer relevant reasons upon incurring any Disputed Result, and this will be publicly provided to all users of GamingTourney.com. You must therefore leave prompt feedback or any perceived foul play by any Challenge Entrants You have previously challenged. Accumulating more than three Disputed Results in a 30 day period may lead to the suspension or termination of Your Challenge/tournament Account.

An Accepted Challenge/tournament shall be deemed a Canceled Accepted Challenge/tournament if it is canceled upon the mutual request and agreement of all Challenge/tournament Entrants; if no Challenge/tournament Results are reported to GamingTourney.com within two hours following the expiration of the Challenge/tournament Timeframe; and/or if multiple Challenge/tournament Entrants Report conflicting results and GamingTourney.com cannot determine a Verified Winner. [1]

All Challenge/tournament Entry Fees collected for any Canceled Accepted Challenge/tournament shall be credited to the Challenge/tournament Accounts from which they were originally drawn. No GamingTourney.com Service Fees are refunded at any time or for any reason after an Accepted Challenge/tournament is established.

The pre-specified Prize will be credited by GamingTourney to the Account of the Verified Winner within a commercially reasonable time.

We may require additional personal information such as Your full legal name, phone number, email address, current permanent residential address, username, password, and social security number if you submit a withdrawal request to us, such that is sufficient to generate payment, give you access to web-based information, and ensure compliance with legal reporting requirements.
