These General Terms were last updated on 19 February 2004.

2. Registration
2.1 In order to place any bets on any of the Games, you must open and maintain an account with us ("Your Account"). When you register, you will be allocated a personal membership number and PIN.

We shall not be liable for the use of Your Account by any other persons, whether authorised by you or not. Please read our security policy (at paragraph 8 below) for further details.
2.3 You must be 18 years old or over in order to register and join in the fun. Any transactions with persons under the age of 18 years will be void. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age and evidence to verify your identity at any time and will be carrying out regular checks of our members. We reserve the right to conduct checks against any of the details provided to us and pursue this information through any channels and methods available to us. Failure to provide substantiated proof of age or other requested information may result in the suspension of Your Account for up to 3 months, following which any funds will be forfeited by you. Any monies due or requested during this time will be withheld unless the requested information is provided.
2.4 We reserve the right to refuse to register you and/or to suspend and/or terminate Your Account where we have reason to believe that you may breach or have breached these General Terms or where required by law and, in such circumstances, we shall not be obliged to provide you with any reasons for so doing.
2.5 In using or otherwise accessing the Services, you shall not:
2.5.1 manipulate or otherwise abuse our financial system or attempt to penetrate our security protections or the accounts of other users;
2.5.2 cause to be published on, and/or send via, our Services or by playing any of the Games, or otherwise transmit or post any material that is untrue, defamatory, offensive, in breach of copyright or of an obscene or menacing nature, or which may cause damage, annoyance or anxiety to any person;

2.7 The copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights ('IPR') in the materials displayed on or via any of the Services (('IPR'), which expression includes text, data, graphics, photographs, videos, animation, images and audio visual content) is owned by or licensed to us. This IPR is protected by the laws of England and Wales, international treaties and all other applicable copyright and intellectual property laws. You agree to respect our IPR and those of third parties. You agree that the Materials are for your personal use only. You shall not use, copy or modify any Materials or give them to other people for commercial, investment or public purposes. Your use of the Services gives you no rights in relation to the IPR in the Materials save as explicitly specified herein.
2.8 It is your responsibility to ensure that at all times you comply with all laws and regulations in any jurisdiction where you are located or resident. It may be illegal for people from certain countries to use the Services and it is your responsibility to ensure that you have complete and unrestricted legal right to use the Services and to register and participate in the Games. You shall only use the Services in accordance with these General Rules and all applicable laws and regulations.
2.9 Due to the nature of the Services, which commence as soon as you click to confirm a deposit, bet or withdrawal, you do not have a right to cancel any such transaction once you have made this confirmation. You should therefore check the details of your transaction carefully before confirming that you want to continue since no refunds will be made if you later decide to cancel or change your transaction.

3. Your Account
3.1 The minimum account deposit is £10. All payments must be deposited by debit or credit card. You will only be able to use one payment card with Your Account. Please ensure you enter your payment card details correctly and if your card details change (including, for example, the issue number or expiry date), you must inform our customer care team immediately on 0845 006 0235. Failure to do the above may result in transactions being declined by the card issuer. We shall not be liable for transactions which are declined as a result of incorrect bank card details.
3.2 You are responsible for checking the confirmation screen displayed to you when carrying out a transaction and correcting any input errors before continuing. We shall not be liable for any transactions entered into in error after you have clicked to accept the details shown on the confirmation screen. You can view recent transactions in the 'My Account' screen.
3.3 Charges and proceedings may be brought against you or any other person who has manipulated, or tried to manipulate, the Services, any of the Games or Your Account or any other customer's account(s) and we reserve the right to pass on such information as we deem relevant to the relevant authorities if we become aware or suspect that you are involved in any such activities or otherwise where required to do so by law or a relevant regulatory body. In such circumstances, you acknowledge that we shall not be obliged to inform you of the same, nor to give any reasons for doing so.
3.4 If we become aware, or suspect, that a transaction involves or may involve financial crime or similar activity then we reserve the right to retain the amount of that transaction and any other transaction made by you. We shall be under no obligation to provide you with any reasons for so doing.
3.5 The balance held in Your Account will not earn interest in your favour.
3.6 You can terminate Your Account at any time by contacting our customer care line on 0845 0060 235 or by e-mail to customercare@gamein.tv. Upon termination all redeemable funds remaining in Your Account will be withdrawn to you to your registered payment card.
3.7 We can terminate Your Account for the reasons and in the circumstances set out in these General Terms or otherwise upon notice to you.
3.8 Daily/Weekly Limits: Following the recommendation of Gamcare, a charity working towards social responsibility in gambling, we have set daily and weekly "loss limits" for the protection of our members:
3.8.1 Daily Limit: £500
3.8.2 Weekly Limit: £1000
3.9 If there is no activity on Your Account over a continuous six-month period, we may notify you that we intend to terminate Your Account and ask you to confirm whether you wish to terminate or maintain Your Account. If you fail to respond within the period specified in our notice to you, Your Account will be deemed to have been terminated and you shall be deemed to have consented to us withdrawing and retaining any funds remaining in Your Account.

4. Paymant Cards
4.1 We accept the following payment cards: Switch, Delta, Visa Debit, Solo, Electron, MasterCard and Visa.
4.2 Electron and Solo transactions are only authorised when there are funds in the cardholder's bank account and in some cases when the cardholder is present. Any cards, which need the cardholder to be present, cannot be used to play the Games. Please check with your bank.

5. Repayments
5.1 We will credit all winnings to Your Account. In order to make a withdrawal from Your Account, select the 'withdraw' option under the My Account' button. Save as described in paragraph 5.2, we will make repayments to your registered payment card. We will seek to ensure that Your Account is credited within 3 - 5 working days although we do not guarantee this and some delays may occur.
5.2 The maximum daily withdrawal is £3000. Any request for sums above this may have to be withdrawn by cheque (and winners of the £1,000 "weekly competition" will be sent winners' cheques). This may take up to 21 days to process. For advice on withdrawing larger amounts please contact our customer care line on 0845 0060 235 or by e-mail to customercare@gamein.tv. To comply with U.K. money laundering regulations, you may be asked to send in proof of identity before any payments can be made to you.
5.3 If we credit a 'bonus' amount to Your Account, for the purposes of sales promotion, competition or otherwise, we may, in our sole discretion, reclaim any unused bonus amounts if you fail to use that account during any six-month period. Any bonus amount credited to Your Account by us is irredeemable and may not be withdrawn by you but must be used in the Services. If we credit a bonus amount to Your Account as a result of you depositing monies into Your Account, we reserve the right to cancel such bonus amount if you subsequently withdraw those monies (or part thereof) from Your Account. A bonus will sometimes appear as either 'refund', 'gift' or 'birthday gift' in Your Account. Bonus amounts can only be used after your deposits and any winnings have been exhausted.
5.4 If any problem occurs with the Services that affects our ability to operate any event after the event has started, the affected event will be void and stake monies will be returned to Your Account.
5.5 To maintain a high level of security to protect your funds, we will perform random security checks and keep records of transactions and wagers. You accept that we may demand additional documentation in the event of a security check and that we may terminate and/or suspend your registration and/or Your Account and/or withhold payment to you if we do not receive such documentation. In addition, we will not register you unless you provide us with the correct documentation requested of you in order to verify your identity.

6. Registration Bonus

8. Security Policy
8.1 We are committed to the security of all personal details entered via the Services. Our systems are rigorously tested and have been developed with encryption software and secure socket layer technology. All banking details and transactions are also protected by firewalls with a view to ensuring the security of all personal information and your complete peace of mind.
8.2 It is only necessary to enter your debit/credit card details once, which stores them in our secure servers using a proprietary encryption algorithm. After that your debit/credit card details will only be used when you make a deposit or withdrawal and are then transmitted between our secure servers and the secure servers of one of the UK's leading e-commerce payment companies, who in turn have secure encrypted links between themselves and all the major UK banks.

9. Security Guarantee
9.1 To prove the confidence we have in the security of our system, and to provide our customers with the highest possible level of confidence, we offer the "Security Guarantee" described below. The Security Guarantee protects you while you use the Services. In the event that you believe there is a security risk to Your Account, please let us know by contacting customer services on Tel: 0845 006 0235.
9.2 The January 2001 edition of the UK Banking Code states that you should only be liable for the first £50 of a fraudulent transaction if you comply with the card issuer's rules and have not acted fraudulently or without reasonable care. If the Code applies and your bank does hold you liable for any of this £50, in circumstances where you have complied with the card issuer's rules and have not acted fraudulently, without reasonable care or in breach of the General Terms or any other terms of use of the Services, we will refund your entire liability to the bank up to the full £50 (the "Security Guarantee"). In some cases we will need you to give us confirmation or evidence that you have not authenticated the transaction. Also, if we need to investigate the transaction further, we will need you to co-operate with us and with law enforcement agencies if we need to involve them.
9.3 The UK Banking Code is a voluntary Code followed by banks and building societies in their relations with personal customers in the United Kingdom. It sets standards of good banking practices that are followed as a minimum by banks and building societies subscribing to it. The relevant section of the Code is as follows:
14.8 Unless we can show that you have acted fraudulently or without reasonable care, your liability for the misuse of your card will be limited as follows:
• if someone else uses your card before you tell us it has been lost or stolen or that someone else knows your PIN, the most you will have to pay is £50
• if someone else uses your card details without your permission, and your card has not been lost or stolen, you will not have to pay anything
• if your card is used before you receive it, you will not have to pay anything

10. Our Liability

We do not accept responsibility for the Third Party Content and do not and cannot be deemed to have endorsed any Third Party Content. In particular, you acknowledge that we will not be party to any transaction or contract with a third party that you may enter into and that we shall have no liability to you in respect of any such transaction, whether arising in contract, tort, under statute or otherwise.
