TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
Celton Manx Limited (the "Betting Platform Provider") operates a Betting Platform containing various forms of interactive games or sports betting products and services, at www.vstar66.com (the "Betting Platform") and via WAP provided though a WAP link (the "WAP Platform") provided by the Betting Platform Provider that is accessed by end user players (the "Player"). The Player uses the Betting Platform for data settlement and visual betting purposes, and an intermediary (the "Associate") for all payment issues relating to their use of the Betting Platform (the "Payment Service"). For the avoidance of doubt, the Payment Service is subject to a contract between the Player and the Associate to which the Betting Platform Provider is not party and therefore the Payment Service is not covered by these terms and conditions. These terms and conditions govern the Player's use of the Betting Platform and their relationship with the Betting Platform Provider. The Player should read these terms and conditions carefully as they affect their rights and liabilities under the law. If the Player does not agree to these terms and conditions, they should not use the Betting Platform. If the Player has any questions about these terms and conditions, they should contact [email protected]
1 APPLICABILITY OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The Player agrees that they will only use the Betting Platform for their personal entertainment and will not use it to conduct a commercial business. The Player's use of the Betting Platform is subject to these terms and conditions. By agreeing to use the Betting Platform, the Player agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions. If there is any inconsistency between these terms and conditions and any document incorporated by reference, these terms and conditions will prevail.
2 AMENDMENTS TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The Betting Platform Provider reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions (including to rectify errors or mistakes discovered on the Betting Platform) without prior notice. However, the Betting Platform Provider will ensure that any significant changes to these terms and conditions will be notified to the Player by an appropriate method (for example via a prominent notice on the Betting Platform). The changes will apply to the use of the Betting Platform after the Betting Platform Provider has given notice. If the Player does not wish to accept the new terms and conditions the Player should not continue to use the Betting Platform. If the Player continues to use the Betting Platform after the date on which the change comes into effect, the Player's use of the Betting Platform will be confirmation of the Player's agreement to be bound by the new terms and conditions.
It remains the Player's responsibility to periodically check these terms and conditions to ensure that they continue to agree with them and Players are advised to do so each time they use the Betting Platform. The Player's continued use of the Betting Platform will be confirmation of their acceptance of any changes to these terms and conditions. Any bet received (but not settled) prior to the time of amendment and notification of amended terms and conditions will be subject to the pre-existing terms and conditions.
3 REGISTRATION AND USE OF THE PLAYER'S ACCOUNT
To access and utilise the Betting Platform, the Player must be at least eighteen years of age or the legal age required for gambling in the Player's jurisdiction, whichever is the greater. The Player must establish an account with and in accordance with their agreement and/or arrangement with the Associate (an "Account"). The Player should ensure that any details provided by them in order to establish an Account (i.e. the details provided to the Associate) or at any time after that are correct and complete and must inform the respective Associate immediately of any changes to their details by updating their Account in order that any communication or notice issued by the Betting Platform Provider can be communicated to them effectively. While the principal Know Your Player checks will be carried out by the Associate in its provision of the Payment Service, the Betting Platform Provider reserves the right to request the Player's identification documents (e.g. passport or identity cards) from the Associate for verification purposes pertinent to the Player's use of the Betting Platform, should such verification be required by the Betting Platform Provider (for example, without limitation, to enable us to comply with our regulatory requirements).
A Player wishing to place a bet on the Betting Platform should note that there may be specific laws in their country, place of residence, or the place where the Player accesses the Betting Platform which prohibit gambling. The Player warrants to the Betting Platform Provider that they will not access the Betting Platform from within a jurisdiction that prohibits gambling. Further, the Player warrants to the Betting Platform Provider that they will not access (or register for) the Betting Platform at any time if they are a citizen of a nation state that prohibits its citizens from participating in gambling (regardless of their location).
It is the Player's responsibility to ensure compliance with their applicable local or national laws before establishing an Account with the Associate and/or before placing bets on the Betting Platform. The Player is encouraged to seek legal advice before establishing an Account and/or placing any bets to verify that their proposed dealings on the Betting Platform are not contrary in any way to such laws. The Betting Platform Provider does not accept any responsibility for a Player's breach of any applicable local or national laws..
Without limiting Clause 3.3, the Betting Platform Provider does not accept bets originating from Afghanistan, American Samoa, Belgium, France, French Guiana, French Polynesia, French Southern Territories, Germany, Greece, Guadeloupe, Guam, Hong Kong, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Libya, Martinique, Mayotte, Northern Mariana Islands, North Korea, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Reunion, Singapore, Somalia, St Pierre et Miquelon, Sudan, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States Minor Outlying Islands, United States of America and US Virgin Islands and, accordingly, the Player warrants that they are not resident in these jurisdictions, nor will they use the Betting Platform when they are in these jurisdictions.
The Player will be provided with a log-in code and password for their Account on the Betting Platform (which will be relayed to them by the Associate). In order to prevent fraud, the Player must keep this log-in code and password confidential and not disclose it or share it with anyone. The password will be kept in encrypted form on the Betting Platform and will not be accessible to the Betting Platform Provider. If the Player knows or suspects that someone else knows their log-in code and/or password or that any other personal information has been stolen or otherwise accessed without their authority they should notify the Associate immediately.
If the Betting Platform Provider has reason to believe that there is likely to be a breach of security or misuse of the Betting Platform, it may require the Player to change their password or it may suspend the Player's Account..
The Player will not allow any other person or third party (including, without limitation, any minor) to use their Account. The Player is solely responsible for all use of the Betting Platform through their login code and password. Unless caused by the Betting Platform Provider's negligence, any unauthorised use of the login code and password will be the Player's sole responsibility and deemed the Player's use. The Player will therefore be liable for any such unauthorised use and will not be re-credited by the Betting Platform Provider any resulting losses from their Account on the Betting Platform, regardless of whether or not the third party who participated had the Player's consent..
If an Account is inactive for 6 months or longer, the Betting Platform Provider reserves the right to cancel the Account.
The Betting Platform Provider may suspend or cancel the Player's Account immediately at its absolute discretion including if the Player breaches any of their obligations under these terms and conditions..
The expiry or termination of a Player's Account for any reason will not affect:
(a) any rights, obligations and/or liabilities accrued before the date of termination or expiry; or
(b) any rights, obligations and/or liabilities expressed to continue in force after and despite expiry or termination.
The Betting Platform Provider reserves the right not to open an Account for any applicant without having to provide any reason whatsoever. The Betting Platform Provider further reserves the right to refuse/reject and suspend and/or terminate without prior notification the Account of any Player who is suspected of cheating, hacking, attacking, manipulating or damaging the Betting Platform Provider's normal betting operations (including the Betting Platform).
The use of artificial intelligence or "bots" on the Betting Platform is strictly forbidden. Likewise, any application that uses any or all of the data contained on the Betting Platform for purposes (including but not limited to commercial purposes) other than participating in the Betting Platform (e.g. via screen scraping) is prohibited. The Betting Platform Provider will take measures to prevent and detect the use of programs that are designed to enable artificial intelligence (non-humans) to utilise or benefit from the data contained on the Website. Any attempted or actual use of artificial intelligence by the Player will lead to termination of their Account in accordance with Clause 3.9 and Clause.
The Player can cancel their Account at any time in accordance with their agreement with the Associate. However, the Player should inform the Associate prior to cancelling their Account in order to ensure that valid Bet Credits (as defined in Section 5 below) are returned to them in full. If the Player does cancel their Account, they must stop using the Betting Platform immediately.
The suspension or cancellation of the Player's Account will not affect either party's statutory rights or liabilities.
The Player may open only one Account. The Player should be aware that, in accordance with their agreement with the Associate, where the Associate discovers that a Player has established multiple Accounts, the Associate may immediately cancel or cause to be cancelled such multiple Accounts.
The Betting Platform Provider grants the Player a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable licence to install and use the software required for the use of the Betting Platform (the "Software"). The Player may use the Software solely for participation in the Betting Platform.
The Betting Platform and all pictures, graphics, photographs, animations, videos, music, audio, text and live feeds on the Betting Platform and the Software are and will remain the property of the Betting Platform Provider and are protected by intellectual property laws, including copyright. They may not be reproduced without the Betting Platform Provider's prior written consent.
Except as permitted by these terms and conditions, the Player may not copy, use, modify, create derivative works from or distribute the Software or written materials associated with the Betting Platform, decode, reverse engineer, dissemble, decompile or otherwise translate or convert the Software or any part of it or transfer, loan, lease, assign, rent or otherwise sublicense the Software or do any of the above to any copy, adaptation, transcription, or merged portion of the Software. Without limitation, the above activity includes any form of denting, hacking, attacking, manipulating or damaging of the Betting Platform.
5 PAYMENT AND SECURITY
Statistical data representing the credit granted to a Player by an Associate ("Bet Credits"), in the amounts notified to the Betting Platform Provider by the Associate, will be displayed in the Account of the Player and may be used by the Player to place bets on the Betting Platform. However, the Bet Credits simply reflect the credit extended to the Player by the Associate (as affected by the Player's agreement on credit with the Associate, the Player's betting (i.e. winnings and losses) on the Betting Platform and any cashing out via the Associate) and, while displayed and processed on the Betting Platform, Bet Credits are in no circumstances claimable from the Betting Platform Provider.
Bet Credits will be updated automatically as the Player bets on the Betting Platform. In addition, in order to reflect any further credit extended, or payout made, to the Player, the Bet Credits will be frequently reconciled by the Betting Platform Provider and the Associate, which will be reflected in the Player's revised Bet Credits balance. The Player is not allowed to place a bet greater than these reconciled Bet Credits. Any winnings (or losses) are therefore reflected in the Bet Credits in the Player's Account and Bet Credits may be cashed by the Player only through the Associate in accordance with any agreement the Player may have with the Associate and not via any method otherwise displayed on the Betting Platform.
The Player may only deposit and receive money through an Associate registered with the Betting Platform Provider and authorised by the Betting Platform Provider to act as an Associate. Failure to adhere to this clause may result in the Player's Account being suspended or terminated.
The Player has the responsibility for checking their available Bet Credits before or after each betting transaction and prior to departing from the Betting Platform. If the Player suspects any errors, they must report it immediately to the Associate in accordance with Clause 5.5 before participating again in the Betting Platform. Failure to do so will result in the Player waiving their right to raise future disputes and acceptance of all previous betting records as true and correct.
Should Bet Credits be credited to or debited from a Player's Account in error, it is the Player's responsibility to notify the Betting Platform Provider of the error without delay in order for the sum to be rectified in accordance with a reconciliation of the amount processed through the Payment Service. Any Bet Credits credited to the Player due to the error will be deemed invalid, are not available to bet with and the Betting Platform Provider reserves the right to void any transaction involving such Bet Credits. If the Player believes that the Bet Credits displayed in their Account do not accord with the amount processed through the Payment Service, they should address this issue with the Associate as the Betting Platform Provider cannot be held responsible for any available Bet Credits that are erroneous as a result of the Payment Service.
The Player must inform the Associate and the Betting Platform Provider as soon as reasonably possible if they believe that their Account information is being misused in any way by a third party so that appropriate steps can be taken by the Associate to suspend their Account. The Betting Platform Provider will not be held responsible for any misuse of the Account and/or any loss suffered by the Player due to any delay in such suspension.
To maintain a high level of security and to protect the Player's Account, the Betting Platform Provider performs random security checks. The Player hereby accepts that the Betting Platform Provider maintains the right to obtain additional documentation from the Associate in order to verify the identity and residence of the Player in the event of such a security check. Where the Associate fails to provide the Betting Platform Provider with such additional documentation, the Betting Platform Provider reserves the right to suspend or cancel the Player's Account at its absolute discretion.
Any applicable taxes and fees in connection with any awarded prize are the Player's sole responsibility. Prizes cannot be transferred, substituted, or redeemed for any other prize.
Unless otherwise stated in these terms and conditions, no bet can be cancelled once confirmed by the Betting Platform Provider. All bets stand once confirmed whether the Player is online or offline. The Betting Platform Provider reserves the right to refuse any bet.
6 ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING PROVISIONS
The Betting Platform Provider will only credit Bet Credits into the Account of the Player that placed the winning bet.
The Betting Platform Provider reserves the right, at its reasonable discretion, to suspend the crediting of Bet Credits, pending a full investigation (including providing details to the relevant law enforcement agency where appropriate), where it suspects that Bet Credits have been credited, and are attempted to be withdrawn, by a Player for the purposes of money laundering. An example of where this might occur includes where a Player's Account has been credited with a substantial sum and then the Player attempts to withdraw these Bet Credits having only conducted minimal betting activity on the Betting Platform. Full repayment of the actual funds represented by the Bet Credits will be made to the Player by the Associate where the investigation reveals no evidence of money laundering.
Notwithstanding the terms of Clause 5.7 above, the Betting Platform Provider reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, at any time and from time to time to request that the Player provides the satisfactory evidence of identity and residential address referred to in Clause 5.7 above. Failure by the Player to provide this evidence may result in the Player's Account being suspended, which shall include the suspension of any withdrawal requests.
In making a bet, the Player will determine the amount of his own stake, subject, to the following:
((a) the restrictions on winnings permitted under Clause 10;
(b) the restrictions on bets set out in this Clause 7.1;
(c) the minimum and maximum amount of any bet will be as indicated on the Betting Platform;
(d) if a Player places a bet, the stake for which would exceed any limits adopted pursuant to this Clause 7.1, such bet will be void; and
(e) the restrictions on bets and winnings as set out in Clause 12.
a bet is not made in full or if details of it are missing, the Betting Platform Provider may, at its discretion, deem such bet to be void.
A Player will not be entitled to make multiple bets which combine different selections within the same event. In the event that such a bet is accepted in error, it will be void.
Subject to Clause 7.5, a Player may send multiple copies of the same bet in which case all such bets will be treated as separate bets. If a Player submits a number of bets (whether identical or different), they will be dealt with by the Betting Platform Provider in the order in which they are received.
The Player must make their bets as an individual. The Betting Platform Provider will be entitled to reject and treat as void a series of identical bets from different Players or where the Betting Platform Provider suspects that Players are acting in collusion or as a syndicate with any other individual(s) and will be entitled to refuse payment of any winnings.
Bets on events in which the Player is participating (and whether a Player is participating for this purpose will be decided by the Betting Platform Provider in its absolute discretion) are not permitted.
In making a bet, the Player represents and warrants to the Betting Platform Provider to not knowing nor having any influence over the outcome of the event in respect of which the bet is made. If the outcome is known, the Betting Platform Provider may treat the bet as void.
The Betting Platform Provider reserves the right to make any amendments or corrections to any event information (including but not limited to the team names, event time, venue, league title) displayed on the Betting Platform at any time. In such circumstances an electronic announcement will be displayed on the Betting Platform.
In order to make a bet, there must be available Bet Credits in the relevant Player's Account equal to or exceeding the amount of the stake. If the Player's available Bet Credits do not cover the aggregate stakes wagered at any one time, the Betting Platform Provider will refuse the bets. In these circumstances, the Player must limit their bets to their available Bet Credits or re-credit their Account through the Associate before they can place the bets in full..
All prices, odds or handicaps quoted are subject to variation and become fixed only at the time when a bet is accepted by the Betting Platform Provider. Where a manifest error (whether caused by human error or otherwise) or systems failure results in incorrect prices, odds or handicaps being offered, or produces incorrect or erroneous game results, any bet (or part of a bet) made on the basis of them will be void. If such error is noticed beforehand, the Betting Platform Provider will use all reasonable endeavour to notify the Player concerned in order to enable him to place another bet at the correct prices, odds or handicaps and, in the case of interactive betting games, the Betting Platform Provider will immediately void the game and return all bets placed to the Player's Account.
Where a bet is settled incorrectly due to, for example, an erroneous result being recorded on the Betting Platform, such settlement will be invalid and reversed. If the Player has insufficient Bet Credits to permit such a reversal, they will be required to return the erroneously credited Bet Credits to the Associate in accordance with Clause 12.6.
The Betting Platform Provider may, at any time, in its absolute discretion and without giving any reason or advance notice, suspend a market, cease betting on a market, refuse to accept any bet or any part of a bet and/or suspend or close any Player's Account.
