DECLINING TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS MEANS YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN COMPETITIONS OR USE YOUR PLAYSPREE ACCOUNT.
- GENERAL TERMS
1.1 ARBITRATION. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY OF WHATEVER NATURE (“CLAIM”) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS AND/OR OUR SOFTWARE OR SERVICES MUST BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROCESS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 14 BELOW. PLEASE READ SECTION 14 CAREFULLY.

1.2 Changes to the Terms. We may amend, change, modify or revise the Terms at any time, and we may post a notice on our website at www.playspree.ai (“Website”) of any material changes, and you can see when these Terms were last revised by referring to the “Updated” legend above. Your continued participation in Competitions and/or use of the Website, Software, Services means you accept any new or modified Terms. You are responsible for reviewing the Terms for any changes, so please check back here from time to time.
1.3 Eligibility. You may not modify these Terms except in writing signed by both you and PlaySpree. For purposes of these Terms, “writing” does not mean an email nor an electronic/facsimile signature.
1.3.1 United States (U.S.). To be eligible to register an Account, to participate in any Competition or receive Services, and/or to download Software, you must: (a) be a natural person who is at least 18 years of age or older, and who is personally assigned to the email address submitted during your Account registration; (b) have the power to enter into a contract with PlaySpree; (c) be physically located within the U.S. when accessing your Account and participating in Competitions; (d) be physically located within a U.S. state in which participation in the Competition you select is unrestricted by that state’s laws; and (e) at all times abide by these Terms.

1.3.3 Children. The Services will not knowingly accept personal information from anyone under 18 years old. If you believe that a child under 18 has gained access to the Services, please contact us at email@example.com. We have taken commercially reasonable steps to restrict use of Services to those who are at least 18 years old. We do not sell products or services for purchase by minors.
1.3.4 Account Registration and Tournament Eligibility. For the avoidance of doubt, account registration does not automatically make you eligible to play in Competition. We reserve the right to change eligibility requirements without notice to you. Please check Competition eligibility requirements often.

1.4 Registration. When you create an Account, you may be asked for full name, address, a legitimate email address that you control and to create a password and for your social media username. After registration, you will be given the opportunity to create a username or accept a username given by the Services. The password and username are needed to participate in the Services. As a registered user, you can update your account settings, including your email address, by logging into your PlaySpree Account at our Website and clicking “Account Settings” or by sending an email to us or by interacting with our bot. Also, if you forget either your password or username, you can visit the Website or email us for help. Please keep your username and password secret because you are responsible for all activity taken through your Account. Although we may offer a feature that allows you to “save” or “remember” your password, this feature makes it possible for third parties to access your Account, so please use that feature prudently because such use is at your own risk. We may, in our sole discretion, reject, change, suspend and/or terminate your username.

Neither your Account nor Winnings nor any Digital Assets (defined in Section 10.3) are transferable to any other person or account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or identification or any other breach or threatened breach of our security or the security of your Account.
1.6 Personal Location Data. As a part of this service, we collect location information from your device. If you would like to opt out of having this information collected, you can disable location access to any PlaySpree game through the Settings menu on your mobile device. Disabling our ability to collect location data may make you ineligible to participate in Competitions that require location verification.
1.7 Use of Information Collected. By upgrading an account and providing an email address, users subscribe to and authorize PlaySpree to provide them with important announcements, relevant promotions, and other related communications. Users will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe from these communications at any time, to unsubscribe email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you are a Cash Player, and you are an authorized winner of a Cash Competition, we will process your Winnings exclusively in the form of Digital Gift Cards and/or Digital Assets, provided, however, that we may freeze your Account and/or delay the processing of winnings pending completion of any investigation of reported or suspected Abuse, verification of eligibility, or to comply with Applicable Laws. We may suspend withdrawals or assess a processing fee of up to $1.00 for any withdrawal of a Digital Asset with a cash value less than $10.00. Further, if you are eligible to receive Winnings, we may require that you provide us with proof that you are, or were at the time of your participation in the subject Competition, eligible to participate in accordance with these Terms and that your participation was in accordance with these Terms. If you do not provide us with such proof to our reasonable satisfaction, then you will not receive the relevant Winnings. If a transaction is made with respect to your Account in error, we may reverse or require return of the payment. You agree to cooperate with us in our efforts to do this. We may also reduce payment to you without notice to adjust for any previous overpayment.
3.7.1 Digital Gift Card. We may assign Winnings to your Account in the form of digital gift card (collectively, “Digital Gift Cards”). The face value of Digital Gift Cards processed as Winnings will vary according to each Cash Competition. Digital Gift Cards will be awarded if properly claimed. No substitution, cash redemption or transfer of the right to receive a Digital Gift Card is permitted. All expenses or costs associated with the acceptance or use of Digital Gift Cards are your responsibility. Digital Gift Cards are awarded “as is” and without any warranty, except as required by law. Use of Digital Gift Cards is subject to issuer’s terms and conditions. All federal, state and local taxes on the value of any Digital Gift Card processed to your account are your responsibility.

Winnings are not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted.

3.9 Taxes. If you are a U.S. resident, we may send you an IRS Form W-9 and 1099-MISC or other appropriate form if the value of your Winnings total $600 or more in any given calendar year. Depending on the state in which you reside, we may also send you additional federal or state tax forms. Without limiting the foregoing, we may withhold and reduce the value of your future Winnings any amount required to be withheld by Applicable Laws, including amounts due in connection with your failure to complete relevant tax documentation, but you remain solely responsible for paying all federal, state and other taxes in accordance with all Applicable Laws.
3.10 Account Monthly Maintenance Fee. If your Account is inactive (i.e. you have not entered at least one (1) tournament) for six (6) consecutive months or more, we reserve the right to charge a one-time reactivation fee of $3.00 (the “Reactivation Fee”) for any subsequent Cash Competition you enter. After five or more months of inactivity we will attempt to notify you by email that if your Account remains inactive for one more month, the Reactivation Fee will be added to any entry fee for your next Cash Competition. If your Account has been inactive for twelve or more consecutive months we reserve the right to close your Account.
3.11 Closing Accounts; Forfeiture of Winnings. If you close your Account, we will process any final winnings, except as otherwise provided herein.

13. DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION
13.1 General. This Section applies to any Dispute except for Disputes relating to the enforcement or validity of our intellectual property rights. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, action, or other controversy between you and us concerning these Terms, the Services or any product, service or information we make available to you, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law. In the event of a Dispute, you or we must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to PlaySpree Customer Support, 50 E. Ridgewood Avenue, #214, Ridgewood, NJ 07450. We will send any Notice of Dispute to you by U.S. Mail to your address if we have it, or otherwise to your email address. You and we will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, either you or we may commence arbitration. You may also litigate any Dispute in small claims court in your county of residence or New York, New York, if the Dispute meets all requirements to be heard in the small claims court. You may litigate in small claims court whether or not you negotiated informally first.
13.2 Binding arbitration. If you and we do not resolve any Dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, any other effort to resolve the Dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration as described in this Section. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.
13.3 Class action waiver. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, any proceedings to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor we will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. If this waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a Dispute, then it won’t apply to those parts. Instead, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
13.4 Arbitration Procedure. If you are located within the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom or the European Union, or any of their territories, then any arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. You and we each agree to commence arbitration only in San Francisco, California, USA. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the AAA rules. In a Dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. If you are located in a country other than listed above, then arbitration will be conducted by the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) pursuant to UNCITRAL rules, and the arbitration shall be conducted in English and the English version of these Terms (and not any translation) shall control, and both parties hereby agree to accord this arbitration agreement the broadest scope admissible under applicable Laws, and that it shall be interpreted in a non-restrictive manner. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to you individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim. These Terms govern to the extent they conflict with the arbitrators’ commercial rules. The arbitrator may award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages, such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering or punitive or indirect, incidental or consequential damages. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, cost and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the arbitrator and AAA; however, the arbitrator may award to the prevailing party reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs (including, for example, expert witness fees and travel expenses), and/or the fees and costs of the arbitrator. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after conclusion of the arbitration, the arbitrator shall issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the material factual findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties waive their right to commence any action or judicial proceeding in connection with a dispute hereunder, except for purposes of: (i) recognition and/or enforcement of the arbitration award or any other decision by the arbitral tribunal, (ii) obliging the other party to participate in the arbitration proceedings, (iii) requesting any type of conservative or interim measure in connection with the dispute prior to the constitution of the arbitral tribunal, (iv) requesting the appearance of witnesses and/or experts, and/or (v) requesting that any information and/or documentation discovery be complied with. By agreeing to this binding arbitration provision, you understand that you are waiving certain rights and protections which may otherwise be available if a claim or Dispute were determined by litigation in court, including, without limitation, the right to seek or obtain certain types of damages precluded by this arbitration provision, the right to a jury trial, certain rights of appeal, the right bring a claim as a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and the right to invoke formal rules of procedure and evidence.
13.5 Claims or Disputes must be filed within one year. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any claim or Dispute under these Terms must be filed within one year from the date of the cause of action. If a claim or dispute isn’t filed within one year, it’s permanently barred.
13.6 Equitable Relief. You agree that we would be irreparably damaged if these Terms were not specifically enforced. Therefore, in addition to any other remedy we may have at law, and notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate Disputes, we are entitled without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to seek appropriate equitable remedies with respect to your violation of these Terms in any court of competent jurisdiction.
14. LANGUAGE OF THE TERMS
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us pertaining to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior or other arrangements, understandings, negotiations and discussions, whether oral or written. These Terms cannot be modified by you, and may only be modified by us as provided above. Our failure to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms or to exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of our right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. The provisions of these Terms are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of these Terms shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect. Section titles in these Terms are for reference only and have no legal effect. No right or remedy of ours shall be exclusive of any other, whether at law or in equity, including without limitation damages injunctive relief, attorneys’ fees and expenses. We may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time without notice to you. You may not assign these Terms or transfer any rights to use the Services or Software. You consent to our providing you notifications about the Services or information the law requires us to provide via email to the address that you specified when you created your Account. Notices emailed to you will be deemed given and received when the email is sent. If you do not consent to receive notices electronically, you must close your Account. These Terms are solely for your and our benefit, and not for the benefit of any other person, except for our successors and assigns. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Please send any questions or comments (including all inquiries unrelated to copyright infringement) to: PlaySpree Customer Support, 50 E. Ridgewood Avenue, #214, Ridgewood, NJ 07450.
