FaceOff will void any challenge where it determines at its absolute discretion that such challenging has taken place. FaceOff reserves the right to close the related user account(s).
Where the Website contains links to third-party websites and resources these links are provided for your information only. FaceOff has no control over the content of these sites or resources, and accepts no liability for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. The inclusion of a link to a third-party website does not constitute an endorsement of that third party's website, product or services (if applicable).
The website may allow you to obtain, purchase or earn virtual items, including but not limited to virtual coins, tokens, or points all for use on the Website (“FaceOff Chips”); and (b) virtual products and benefits (such as avatars and emojis) (“Virtual Goods”) (FaceOff Coins and Virtual Goods shall be collectively referred to as "Virtual Items”). You may receive for free a certain number of FaceOff Chips when you first become an Account Holder. FaceOff also provides you the opportunity to purchase Virtual Items through the website for a fee using real money. Your purchase of any Virtual Items is final and is not refundable. Prices and availability of Virtual Items are subject to change without notice.
You may also earn Virtual Coins through activities within the website. For example; by winning challenges that you place on the website. You can use Virtual Coins to place challenges, to purchase Virtual Goods, or to participate in other activities that may be offered on the website excluding skill-based games.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Virtual Items have no real world value and cannot be redeemed (from us or any other party) for real money, goods or other items of monetary value, including in the event that you have unused Virtual Items remaining in your account at any time your account is closed (whether by you or by us). All sales of Virtual Items are final. No refunds will be given, except in our sole and absolute discretion.
You also agree that you will only obtain Virtual Items from us and not from any third party. Virtual Items may only be purchased and held by legal residents of countries where access to and use of FaceOff is permitted.
By acquiring or purchasing Virtual Items, Account Holders have obtained a limited and revocable license to a digital product for use only in the website. This license is personal to the Account Holder, and thus Virtual Items may not be sold, transferred, assigned, gifted, traded or sublicensed (including for monetary exchange or for any other value) and are not transferable upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise by operation of law. Virtual Items are not the Account Holder’s personal property and have no real world monetary or cash value. Virtual Items may be revoked at any time by FaceOff. When you purchase a license from us to use Virtual Items, the performance of our services begins immediately once your purchase is complete. Account Holders may not combine, transfer or share Virtual Items with other Account Holders.
Any attempt to transfer, sell or perform other action related to Virtual Items in violation of these Terms may subject the Account Holder to termination of his of her account, a lifetime ban from using the Website or our other products and services, and legal action. We reserve the right to take any other action or additional action we deem appropriate in our sole discretion in the event we believe (in our sole discretion) that an Account Holder has violated these provisions.
A challenge can only be placed by a registered Account Holder.
A challenge can only be placed over an electronic communication device such as a mobile phone or over the internet.
A challenge is deemed to have been placed only when confirmation of the acceptance of the challenging offer is received on the device or computer of the Account Holder from FaceOff.
FaceOff reserves the right to suspend a market and/or cancel any challenge at any time. When a market is suspended, any challenges entered will be rejected. FaceOff also reserves the right to cease challenging on any markets at any time without notice.
For events, where there is no official start time declared, the advertised start time of the event will be used. If, for any reason, a challenge is inadvertently accepted after an event or match has commenced, challenges will stand providing the final outcome is not known, and that no participant/team has gained any material advantage (e.g. a score, sending-off for the other team, etc.) at the time the challenge was placed. If the outcome of an event/market is known, FaceOff reserves the right to void the challenge, win or lose.
Disputes over times challenges are placed will be settled using the FaceOff’s Website transaction log; FaceOff’s system is the official timekeeping device concerning all challenges and activities related to the Services. All times stated on the Website and/or referred to by FaceOff staff relate to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) unless stated otherwise.
If, for any reason, we are unable to validate the outcome of a particular market, all challenges will be void, unless settlement of challenges is already determined.
The Account Holder affirms that at the time he or she placed a challenge, he or she had no knowledge as to the outcome of the respective events. Challenges on games in which the Account Holder has gained access to insider information concerning the respective event(s) are not allowed. Where there is a suspicion of a violation of this rule, FaceOff retains the right to void the challenge. It also retains the right to take any further action to investigate any challenge, protect its legitimate interests and to comply with other laws and regulations.
FaceOff retains the right to decline to accept challenges or cancel challenges without providing any reason.
The list of all the challenges, their status and details are available to the Account Holder on the Website after log-in.
Should challenging on an event be stopped, the Account Holder will be refunded all FaceOff Chips used by the Account Holder for such challenge.
Should FaceOff decide to close an Account Holder's account, challenges that have already been placed and accepted will voided.
A challenge that has been placed and accepted cannot be amended, withdrawn or cancelled by the Account Holder.
A mistake regarding the details of a challenge will not influence the validity of the challenge. If the event on which the challenge has been placed is incorrect, then this will automatically void the challenge.
When the Account Holder places a challenge, he or she acknowledges that he or she has read and understood in full all of the Terms regarding the challenges offered by FaceOff as stated on the Website.
When the Account Holder places a challenge, he or she recognizes that unless other users back his or her challenge, the challenge will not be matched and therefore he or she cannot win the attempted challenge, even if the outcome of the event is as predicted.
FaceOff manages the Account Holder's account, calculates the available FaceOff Chips, the pending FaceOff Chips, the challenging FaceOff Chips as well as the amount of FaceOff Chips won by a winning Account Holder. Unless proved otherwise, these amounts are considered as final and are deemed to be accurate. FaceOff’s decisions regarding the deduction and crediting of FaceOff Chips to any Account Holder are final and binding. FaceOff Chips credited to an Account Holder’s account that are subsequently determined to be invalid for any reason are subject to disqualification and will be removed from the Account Holder’s account.
The Account Holder is fully responsible for all challenges he or she places on the Website. FaceOff will never question the Account Holder about the relevance of the challenges they wish to place and will not be held responsible for mistakes that could have been made during the placing of such challenges, including the stake or odds of the challenge.
FaceOff Chips won through a challenge will be credited into the Account Holder's account after the final result of the event and challenge are confirmed. However, FaceOff reserves the right to set aside any FaceOff Coin winnings should there be investigations into the result of an event caused by a suspicion of criminal activities that may have affected the result of the event and related challenge(s). If the irregularity is confirmed, then FaceOff retains the right to void any related challenges and purported FaceOff Coin winnings associated therewith.
Should FaceOff become aware that an Account Holder has placed a number of challenges from different accounts he or she has irregularly opened, all challenges from all such accounts will be voided. FaceOff retains the right to take further action as deemed necessary.
The challenge, once settled, will be governed by the version of Terms valid at the time of the challenge being accepted.
FaceOff Chips won from settled challenges and not otherwise used for any Skill-based contest as set out in section 11 are added to the account balance of the winning Account Holder. Any FaceOff Chips credited to an account in error are not available for use, and FaceOff reserves the right to void any transactions involving such FaceOff Chips and/or withdraw the relevant FaceOff Chips from your account and/or reverse the transaction, either at the time or retrospectively.
FaceOff reserves the right to withhold crediting of any FaceOff Chips and to declare challenges on an event void if we have evidence that the following has occurred: (i) the integrity of the event has been called into question; (ii) the odds price(s) has been manipulated; or (iii) match-rigging has taken place. Evidence of the above may be based on the size, volume or pattern of challenges placed with FaceOff. A decision given by the relevant governing body of the sport or activity in question (if any) will be conclusive. If any Account Holder owes any money to FaceOff for any reason, we have the right to take that into account before crediting any FaceOff Chips to that customer.
Where there is evidence of a series of challenges each containing the same selection(s) having been placed by or for the same individual or syndicate of individuals, FaceOff reserves the right to make challenges void.
FaceOff facilitates challenges between Account Holders as displayed on the gaming platform. All such challenges are subject to the rules specific to each relevant event as maybe set out on the Website and amended from time to time, and it is the responsibility of all Account Holders to make themselves aware of all such rules to the extent that it is relevant to any challenges they place.
From time to time, the Website may provide some or all Account Holders the opportunity to use FaceOff Chips to enter skill-based contests. The eligibility requirements for such skill-based contests, the number of FaceOff Chips needed to enter, and any prizes awarded will be determined by FaceOff in its sole discretion and be posted on the Website or otherwise communicated to Account Holders. Account Holders may determine in their own discretion whether they wish to enter such skill-based contests, which may award either Virtual Items and/or prizes of real-world value. Prizes available for any skill-based contest will be awarded solely based upon the Account Holder successfully completing the required skill(s) of such skill-based contest, and are therefore not awarded based upon Account Holder’s challenges based upon any event or any other reason. If Account Holders elect to enter a skill-based contest, the required number of FaceOff Chips will be deducted from their account.
FaceOff’s decisions regarding the deduction of FaceOff Chips from any Account Holder or awarding of prizes from any skill-based contest are final and binding. Prizes awarded to an Account Holder that are subsequently determined to be invalid for any reason due to the Account Holder’s inappropriate action or violation of these Terms are subject to revocation.
Any withdrawals under $5 will be subject to a surcharge for transaction fees.
Users who have won a social contest will be given no less than 14 days to select their option to submit won FaceOff Chips in exchange for leaderboard points, should this time elapse, the users won coins will automatically be transferred into their wallet as the total amount of won FaceOff Chips
Users who have been invited into a skill based game to redeem points will have no less than 14 days to complete their skill based game, should this time elapse the option to play this game will be terminated and the points will be re-submitted on the leaderboard.
