LICENSE OF VIRTUAL ITEMS

1.8

The RM Games may include virtual chips and/or other virtual items for use in the RM Games (together the "Virtual Items"). Depending on the RM Game, you may be able to "earn" Virtual Items through gameplay. These "real world" terms are used figuratively, and you agree that you have no right or title in Virtual Items "earned" in a RM Game. Any "virtual currency" or similar virtual balance shown in your User account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license to use the relevant Virtual Items in-game.

1.9

Virtual Items are for in-game use only. You may not sublicense, trade, sell, or transfer Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of a RM Game (or attempt to do any of these things). Any such action or attempted action is prohibited and void and may subject your User account to termination. In addition, you acknowledge that REEL Germany may commence legal action against you for any harm done by such transfer or attempted transfer of Virtual Items outside of the RM Games.

1.10

You acknowledge and agree that Virtual Items will not be usable if either (a) the RM Game in question is withdrawn for any reason; or (b) the Virtual Item in question is withdrawn for any reason. REEL Germany will endeavour to give you reasonable prior notice of any withdrawal of a RM Game/Virtual Item. However, if REEL Germany gives you reasonable prior notice of a withdrawal of a RM Game or Virtual Item, you will not be entitled to a refund of any affected Virtual Items and REEL Germany will have no further liability to you.

1.11

Save as set out in Clause 1.10 above, you acknowledge that REEL Germany is not required to provide a refund of Virtual Items for any reason, and that you will not receive money or other compensation for unused Virtual Items when a User account is closed, whether such closure was voluntary (e.g. where the User account is closed by you) or involuntary (e.g. where the User account is closed because you materially breach any term of this Agreement).

In the event that we become aware of additional accounts opened by a User, we shall block and close such additional accounts without notice and may confiscate funds held in such accounts. The User will not be able to close the User account during the blocking period.

2.2.1.2. Each User account shall be accessible through the use of a combination of a unique username ("Username"), a unique and secret password ("Password"), and other optional numeric authentication methods that the User may select (the Username, Password and any other authentication features together being referred to as the "Login Credentials"). The User is obligated to choose his/her own Username and Password in accordance with the rules relating thereto.

2.2.1.3. The User agrees that he/she is solely responsible for all use of the Service under his/her Login Credentials and that he/she shall not disclose the Login Credentials to any person whatsoever nor permit another person to use the Service via his/her User account.

2.2.1.4. The User is obliged to keep his/her Login Credentials secret and confidential at all times and to take all efforts to protect their secrecy and confidentiality. Any unauthorized use of the Login Credentials shall be the sole responsibility of the User and be deemed as his/her use. Any liability therefrom shall be that of the User.

2.2.1.5. We reserve the right to open, service and block User accounts on the Sites. With the exception of third-party exclusions pursuant to Section 17 (2) of the GlüG (in this context, please also see Clause 5 of this Agreement), the decision of our management with regard to a User account, the use of the Service or the settlement of a dispute shall be final, and a renewed submission or appeal is not possible. In the event of a third-party exclusion, the competent regulatory authority (gambling supervisory authority of the Schleswig-Holstein Ministry of the Interior) shall decide in the event of an objection by the User.

2.2.2. Permanent Account

2.2.2.1. Once the information under Clause 2.1.2. has been verified, you will be provided with a permanent User account.

2.2.2.2. Please note that REEL Germany is not a financial institution and monies held in your User account do not accrue interest.

2.2.2.3. You will not be able to place any bets using the Service in an amount greater than the total amount of money in your User account.

2.2.2.4. You are fully responsible for paying all monies owed to REEL Germany. You agree not to make any chargebacks, and/or deny or reverse any payment made by you in respect of the Service. You will reimburse REEL Germany for any chargebacks, denial or reversal of payments you make and any loss suffered by us as a consequence.

2.2.2.5. REEL Germany reserves the right to run credit and/or identity checks on a User, with third party credit reference agencies or services, using the information provided to us by a User upon registration with the Service. The third party credit reference agencies or services may retain a record of the information but they will not use the information for any other purpose.

2.2.2.6. REEL Germany reserves the right to use third party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions to process payments made by and to you in connection with your use of the Service.

2.2.2.7. The monies deposited by you on your User account will be held in a settlement-free trust account held in your name.

2.3

Payments

2.3.1. Any sums deposited by the User will be credited to the User account immediately after receipt of such payment by us.

2.3.2. Any winnings will be credited to the User account immediately after the end of the game or termination of the participation in the game.

2.3.3. Payments into or from a User account may only be processed via an account held with a finance institution as defined in Section 1 of the Banking Act (KWG) or in Directive 2007/64/EC of the European Parliament. The registered User must be the account holder. Cash deposits or withdrawals are not permitted in remote sales. The borrowing prohibition must be complied with. REEL Germany reserves the right to make the withdrawal options which are available to the Users subject to additional eligibility requirements at any time.

2.3.4. Currency Exchange: User accounts of players from Schleswig-Holstein in principle have to be operated in the currency Euro (EUR). Therefore, deposits into and withdrawals from User accounts of players from Schleswig-Holstein shall be undertaken in EUR. However, since PokerStars offers poker cash games and international poker tournaments, which are operated, accounted for and settled in Pound Sterling (GBP), US-Dollars (USD) or Canadian Dollars (CAD) in addition to Euro (EUR), in which players from all around the world may participate, also from Schleswig-Holstein, a currency exchange among these currencies may become necessary in case of a participation of players from Schleswig-Holstein, in such poker cash games or international tournaments. All currency exchanges will take place at the current prevailing rate offered by REEL Germany for the currency exchange type in question. The exchange rates will be updated on a regular basis, and it is possible that different rates may be offered depending on the type of exchange and movement in currency value. Users should ensure they are aware of fluctuations in the exchange rate and the impact this may have on their available funds. Please note that REEL Germany is not a bureau de change (currency exchange office) and therefore is not responsible and may not be held liable for any loss incurred by Users participating in cash games or tournaments offered in GBP, USD or CAD and whose stakes therefore need to be exchanged into such currencies.

The User agrees to and accepts the terms and conditions relating to real money transaction processing and currency exchange located here.

2.4

Account and Payment Information

We provide the User with direct access to the information on the status of the User account, the gaming history (including stakes, winnings and losses), deposits and withdrawals and other related transactions. After identification and authentication, the User will be provided with the information set out in the foregoing sentence for the previous thirty days. However, participation in the RM Games can only take place after the User has expressly confirmed to have taken note of the information. Furthermore, we shall, upon a corresponding application by the User, provide account statements for all transactions on the gaming account during the previous 12 months.

3. FEES

PokerStars is an online poker room, not a casino. This means that you will never play against "the bank" (the provider itself), but only against other poker players, via the internet. REEL Germany charges a fee for organizing the games, the so-called "rake". For more information regarding the applicable fees, please see our fee schedule here.

4. LIMITS
4.1

If you submit an application for the determination of a daily, weekly or monthly deposit limit either directly in the poker software referred to as “poker client” or through an e-mail to Support, receipt of the application will be confirmed and the deposit limit will apply immediately.

4.2

An application for an increase of a defined deposit limit will become effective no earlier than forty-eight hours after receipt of the application. An application for a reduction of a defined deposit limit shall take effect immediately upon receipt of the application; a renewed increase after submission of a reduction application cannot be submitted prior to expiry of a one-month period.

4.3

We offer a feature which allows the automatic transfer to your account of winnings above a certain sum.

5. COOLDOWN AND EXCLUSION
5.1

You may apply for a short-term cooling-off period or a temporary or permanent exclusion (self-exclusion). Your application will be granted immediately. We provide you with a corresponding feature which also allows entry into the general excluded-player file. There also is the option of a third-party exclusion.

5.2

A User will be excluded in the following cases:

  1. upon an application by the User either directly in the poker software referred to as “poker client” or by e-mail to Support ("Self-exclusion");
  2. by our employees, based on justified submissions by third parties or based on other factual indications, if it is to be assumed that the User is in danger of gaming addiction or is over-indebted, does not fulfil his/her financial obligations or wagers stakes which are not in proportion to his/her income or means ("Third-party Exclusion");
  3. if there is a suspicion that you have obtained unjustified winnings or have breached statutory provisions, e.g. in the area of money-laundering, the GGVO or the terms and conditions for the gaming account ("Exclusion due to a Suspicion").

We shall inform the User of the exclusion in writing without undue delay, and shall also inform him/her immediately of the reasons for the exclusion.

In the event of a Self-exclusion, we shall inform the User of the possibilities of obtaining counselling and treatment regarding gaming addiction at a counselling institution near the User's place of residence.

In the event of a Third-party Exclusion, the competent authority (Gambling Supervisory Authority of the Schleswig-Holstein Ministry of the Interior) shall decide in the event that the User objects.

In the event of an Exclusion due to a Suspicion, we shall take a decision as to the facts within a reasonable period of time. During the Exclusion due to a Suspicion, you can neither close nor withdraw any sums from the User account.

5.3

A short-term game break (cooldown) has a duration of twenty-four hours, a temporary exclusion lasts for at least one month. A cooldown and a temporary exclusion lead to the deactivation of the User's account during this period.

5.4

A permanent exclusion usually lasts for at least one year, unless the player applies explicitly for a shorter period, which, however, must not be shorter than three months, and leads to the gaming account being closed. The permanent exclusion can be lifted not earlier than after the expiry of at least three months, and only upon a written application by the User to us or to the land-based casino or stationary gambling arcade operator or to the other online gambling operator/provider who has imposed the exclusion. We or the operator of the land-based casino or the stationary gambling arcade operator or the other online gambling operator/provider, who has imposed the exclusion, shall forward the application for the lifting of such exclusion to OASIS without undue delay. Alternatively, the User may apply directly to OASIS for the lifting of the exclusion. In the lifting application, the User must credibly demonstrate that the reason for such exclusion has ceased to exist. OASIS will then take the decision on the lifting of the ban according to its reasonable discretion.

6. CLOSING OF AN ACCOUNT
6.1

A User account will be closed in the following cases:

  1. if the User has submitted incomplete or incorrect information in connection with registration;
  2. if the User has failed to submit the required documents proving correctness and completeness of such information, within two weeks from a corresponding request by us;
  3. if the User is excluded permanently;
  4. if the User is entered into a general excluded-player register as defined in Section 17 of the GlüG.
6.2

The User can only re-register after expiry of at least one year from the date on which the gaming account was closed.

6.3

In the event of your gaming account being blocked, we shall transfer the credit balance on the gaming account to your bank account, without undue delay, in any case no later than within five working days. Fees will not be charged for the closing and pay-out.

6.4

If a preliminary gaming account is closed, only the stake funds remaining on the gaming account can be transferred to your bank account.

7. NO WARRANTIES
7.1

REEL Germany disclaims any and all warranties, expressed or implied, in connection with the Service which is provided to you "AS IS" and we provide you with no warranty or representation whatsoever regarding its quality, fitness for purpose, completeness or accuracy.

7.2

7.3

REEL Germany reserves the right to suspend, discontinue, modify, remove or add to the Service in its absolute discretion with immediate effect and without an obligation to provide you with notice where we consider it necessary to do so, including (for example) where we receive information that you have entered into any self-exclusion agreement with any gambling provider or where we deem it necessary for the management, maintenance or update of the Software, and we shall not be liable in any way whatsoever for any loss suffered as a consequence of any decision made by REEL Germany in this regard.

7.4

The above disclaimer shall not apply in respect of any damage and defects caused intentionally or in a grossly negligent manner.

8. YOUR REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Prior to your use of the Service and on an ongoing basis you represent, warrant, covenant and agree that:

you will need to provide us with certain personal details about yourself (including details regarding your methods of payment) for the purpose of using the Service. We will process your personal details in compliance with the data protection laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. Please see our Privacy Policy or more information on how we use such personal data;

8.4

you are solely responsible for any applicable taxes and charges which may be payable on cash or prizes awarded to you through your use of the Service;

8.7

you are aged 18 or over;

8.8

you are not currently self-excluded from any online or mobile gambling site and have not been excluded and have not applied for such exclusion or the entry into an excluded-player system as defined in Section 17 (1) of the GlüG, and that you will inform us immediately if you enter into a self-exclusion agreement with any other gambling provider, or apply for the entry into an excluded-player system as defined in Section 17 (1) of the GlüG;

8.9

you have provided true and accurate information concerning your physical address and identity, including nationality;

8.10

you are not currently on any list of persons that would prohibit REEL Germany from engaging in business or other dealings, or otherwise offering the Service to you;

8.12

if you are identified as such a person as detailed in Clause 8.10 or 8.11, REEL Germany may immediately terminate your account and all access to any of the Service.

9. PROHIBITED USES
9.1

SOFTWARE MODIFICATIONS. User may not attempt to modify, decompile, reverse-engineer or disassemble the Software in any way.

9.2

PERSONAL USE. The Service is intended solely for the User's personal use. The User is only allowed to wager for his/her personal entertainment. Under no circumstances shall a User be permitted to use his/her "real money account" with us for any purpose other than for using the Service. The User must provide full and truthful information in respect of all details and information provided by the User to us and the User is obligated to update such details in the event of any change thereto.

9.3

As part of REEL Germany's licensing agreement and in compliance with anti-money-laundering legislation, Users need to be aware they may be required to produce personal documentation (such as government-issued ID, bank statements and utility bills) upon request in order for their transfer to be processed. This allows REEL Germany to help protect the Users and prevent REEL Germany being used as a vehicle for money laundering or fraud.

9.4

COLLUSION. Collusion between Users by sharing hole cards or by any other methods is strictly forbidden. We reserve the right, in addition to other measures, to restrict seating and/or to prohibit Users from playing at a particular poker table or in a tournament, including restricting two or more Users from playing together at the same table or in the same tournament. In addition, we reserve the right to consider any collusion or attempt at collusion between players (including Users) as a material breach of this Agreement and accordingly we shall have the right to terminate a User's account if a User engages or attempts to engage in any such activity, regardless of the outcome of such attempt.

9.5

EXTERNAL PLAYER ASSISTANCE TOOLS. REEL Germany prohibits external player assistance tools ("EPA Tools") that are designed to provide an "unfair advantage" to players. REEL Germany defines "EPA Tools" as computer software (other than the Software), and non-software-based systems (e.g. web sites, subscription services and physical materials). REEL Germany takes a broad view of what constitutes an "unfair advantage" in the context of any use of EPA Tools and specific guidance can be found in our Third Party Tools and Services Policy. For the avoidance of doubt, what is prohibited encompasses but is not limited to accessing or compiling information on other players beyond that which the User has personally observed through the User's own game play or receiving advice, direction or assistance on how to play, in real time, that goes beyond a basic level.

9.6

AUTOMATIC PLAYERS (BOTS). The use of artificial intelligence including, without limitation, "robots" is strictly forbidden in connection with the Service. All actions taken in relation to the Service by a User must be executed personally by Users through the user interface accessible by use of the Software, and without the assistance of any form of artificial intelligence.

9.7

EPA PREVENTION. You agree that REEL Germany may take steps to detect and prevent the use of prohibited EPA Tools. These steps may include, but are not limited to, examination of software programs running concurrently with the Software on the User's PC and/or Device. You agree that you will not attempt to bypass, interfere with, or block such steps, including, without limitation, the use of third party software that bypasses, interferes with, or blocks such steps.

9.8

CHIP-DUMPING. Chip-dumping occurs when any User intentionally loses a hand in order to deliberately transfer his chips to another User. Any User who participates or attempts to participate in chip-dumping with any other User, including being the recipient of funds, while using the Service may be permanently banned from using the Service and their User account may be terminated immediately. In such circumstances we will be under no obligation to refund to you any monies that may be in your User account at such time.

9.9

FRAUDULENT BEHAVIOR. In the event that REEL Germany deems that a User has engaged or attempted to engage in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity while using the Service or any other services, products or facilities of the wider Flutter Group, including without limitation, engaging in any of the activities set forth in this Clause 9 or any other game manipulation, or the making of any fraudulent payment, including without limitation, use of a stolen credit card or fraudulent chargeback or money laundering, REEL Germany shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including, but not limited to:

  1. immediately blocking a User's access to the Service;
  2. notifying other companies within the Flutter Group;
  3. terminating a User's account with REEL Germany;
  4. freezing the funds within the User's account up until final legal clarification of the facts;
  5. disclosing such information (including the identity of the User) to financial institutions, criminal prosecution authorities or relevant authorities and/or any person or entity that has the legal right to such information; and/or
  6. taking legal action against the User.
9.10

NO ARBITRAGE. Users are strictly prohibited from utilizing the Sites and its systems to facilitate arbitrage through deposits and withdrawals transactions. Where REEL Germany deems that a User has deliberately used the aforementioned systems for money laundering through arbitrage, REEL Germany reserves the right to freeze all funds in the account and to submit a suspicious transactions report to the competent FIU without warning or notification.

9.11

USE OF FALSE CREDIT AND UNJUST ENRICHMENT

If we mistakenly credit your account with winnings that do not belong to you, whether this is due to a technical or human error or otherwise, amount will be transferred back to us from your account. We reserve the right to void any transactions placed using incorrectly/mistakenly credited funds, including related winnings paid out in error. To satisfy any such liability, we further reserve the right to freeze and withhold these funds and set-off any subsequent winnings owed to you. If prior to our becoming aware of the error you have withdrawn funds that do not belong to you, without prejudice to other remedies and actions that may be available to us at law, you are obliged to pay us back the mistakenly paid amount. In the event of an incorrect crediting, you are obliged to notify us immediately by email to Support.

You may not abuse or take advantage of any error or instance of incompleteness on any of the Sites or in any of the RM Games provided by us (via any of the Sites). Should you become aware of such an error or incompleteness, please notify us immediately. If you do not comply with this Clause and take advantage of or divulge any information about an error or incompleteness, we will pursue any remedies available at law.

10. OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE OR CONTENT

The User is prohibited from posting any unlawful, indecent, racist, obscene, libelous, defamatory or threatening material or any material that would violate any law or generally be considered to be offensive, via the Service whether using the chat function, the player images option or in correspondence with REEL Germany or the Flutter Group's staff.

LICENSE OF VIRTUAL ITEMS

The PM Games may include virtual chips and/or other virtual items for use in the PM Games (together the "Virtual Items"). Depending on the PM Game, you may be able to "earn" Virtual Items through gameplay and/or "buy" Virtual Items by visiting the relevant purchase page(s) and completing the necessary transaction. You hereby acknowledge and agree that these "real world" terms are only used figuratively, and you agree that you have no right or title in Virtual Items, whether "earned" in a PM Game or "purchased" from Stars Mobile. Any "virtual currency" or similar virtual balance shown in your User account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license to use the relevant Virtual Items in-game.

1.9

Virtual Items are for in-game use only. You may not sublicense, trade, sell, or transfer Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of a PM Game (or attempt to do any of these things). Any such action or attempted action is prohibited and void and may subject your User account to termination. In addition, you acknowledge that Stars Mobile may commence legal action against you for any harm done by such transfer or attempted transfer of Virtual Items outside of the PM Games.

1.10

When you purchase a license to use Virtual Items in-game, Stars Mobile may send you a confirmatory email that will contain details of the Virtual Items you have ordered. Please check that the details in the confirmatory email are correct as soon as possible and maintain a copy of it for your records. If you have any concern, please contact Support. Stars Mobile keeps records of transactions in order to deal with any queries.

1.11

Stars Mobile may revise the pricing for Virtual Items at any time.

1.12

You acknowledge and agree that Virtual Items will not be usable if either (a) the PM Game in question is withdrawn for any reason; or (b) the Virtual Item in question is withdrawn for any reason. Stars Mobile will endeavour to give you reasonable prior notice of any withdrawal of a PM Game/Virtual Item. If Stars Mobile does not give you such prior notice for whatever reason, you will be entitled to contact Stars Mobile for a refund of any unused Virtual Items that you have "purchased" with real money (not "earned" through gameplay) and which are affected by the withdrawal of the PM Game/Virtual Item. However, if Stars Mobile gives you reasonable prior notice of a withdrawal of a PM Game or Virtual Item, you will not be entitled to a refund of any affected Virtual Items and Stars Mobile will have no further liability to you.

1.13

Save as set out in Clause 1.12 above, you acknowledge that Stars Mobile is not required to provide a refund of Virtual Items for any reason, and that you will not receive money or other compensation for unused Virtual Items when a User account is closed, whether such closure was voluntary (e.g. where the User account is closed by you) or involuntary (e.g. where the User account is closed because you materially breach any term of this Agreement).

2. NO WARRANTIES

2.2

We make no warranty that the Service will be uninterrupted, timely or error-free, that defects will be corrected or that the Software and the Sites shall be free from viruses, bugs or other contaminants.

2.3

Stars Mobile reserves the right to suspend, discontinue, modify, remove or add to the Service in its absolute discretion with immediate effect and without an obligation to provide you with notice where we consider it necessary to do so, including (for example) where we receive information that you have entered into any self-exclusion agreement with any gambling provider or where we deem it necessary for the management, maintenance or update of the Software and we shall not be liable in any way whatsoever for any loss suffered as a consequence of any decision made by Stars Mobile in this regard.

3. AUTHORITY

Stars Mobile retains authority over the issuing, maintenance, and closing of Users' play-money accounts on the Sites. The decision of Stars Mobile's management, with regards to any aspect of a User's play-money account, use of the Service, or dispute resolution, is final and shall not be open to review or appeal. The account created by a User shall hereinafter be known as a Stars Account. The User's Stars Account will provide access to all the Sites, made available to you under the terms of this Agreement, by Stars Mobile, as applicable to your geographical location. Any and all references in this Agreement to the term 'User account' or 'account' means your Stars Account.

4. YOUR REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Prior to your use of the Service and on an ongoing basis you represent, warrant, covenant and agree that:

4.1

your use of the Service is at your sole option, discretion and risk;

4.2

the telecommunications networks and Internet access services required for you to access and use the Service are entirely beyond the control of Stars Mobile and Stars Mobile shall have no liability whatsoever for any outages, slowness, capacity constraints or other deficiencies affecting the same;

4.3

you are prohibited from using the Service in any way to create, receive or facilitate the transfer or receipt of any financial gain or other pecuniary advantage to you or any third party (whether or not acting on your behalf). Virtual Items have no value in and of themselves and are not transferable and exchangeable within a User account. Further, such Virtual Items have no value in themselves and are not redeemable for any 'real' currency or prize. Thus you are prohibited from sublicensing, renting, leasing, selling, trading, gifting, bequeathing or otherwise transferring your User account or any Virtual Items associated with your User account to a third person;

4.4

Stars Mobile does not provide advice to Users regarding tax and/or legal matters. Users who wish to obtain advice regarding tax and legal matters are advised to contact appropriate advisors and/or authorities in the jurisdiction in which they are domiciled and/or resident;

4.5

you are aged 18 or over (or, if the legal age for gambling in your jurisdiction of residence is more than 18, you are older than this relevant legal age for gambling) and that you are not currently self-excluded from any online or mobile gambling site and that you will inform us immediately if you enter into a self-exclusion agreement with any gambling provider;

4.6

you have provided true and accurate information concerning your age, physical address and identity, including nationality;

4.7

you are not currently on any list of persons that would prohibit Stars Mobile from engaging in business or other dealings, or otherwise offering the Service to you;

4.8

you are not prohibited due to your geographic location or otherwise from receiving funds from Stars Mobile; and

4.9

if you are identified as such a person as detailed in Clause 4.7 or 4.8, Stars Mobile may immediately terminate your account and all access to any of the Service.

5. PROHIBITED USES
5.1

SOFTWARE MODIFICATIONS. User may not attempt to modify, decompile, reverse-engineer or disassemble the Software in any way.

5.2

PERSONAL USE. The Service is intended solely for the User's personal use and entertainment and not for money and must not in any way be used to create any financial gain or other pecuniary advantage to you. The User must provide full and truthful information in respect of all details and information provided by the User to Stars Mobile and the User is obligated to update such details in the event of any change thereto.

5.3

COLLUSION AND CHEATING. Collusion and cheating between Users by sharing hole cards or by any other methods is strictly forbidden. Stars Mobile reserves the right, in addition to other measures, to restrict seating and/or to prohibit Users from playing at a particular poker table or in a tournament, including restricting two or more Users from playing together at the same table or in the same tournament. In addition, Stars Mobile reserves the right to consider any collusion or attempt at collusion between players (including Users) as a material breach of this Agreement and accordingly Stars Mobile shall have the right to terminate a User's account if a User engages or attempts to engage in any such activity, regardless of the outcome of such attempt. Users should report any suspected collusion or cheating to Support.

5.4

EXTERNAL PLAYER ASSISTANCE TOOLS. Stars Mobile prohibits external player assistance tools ("EPA Tools") that are designed to provide an "unfair advantage" to players. Stars Mobile defines "EPA Tools" as computer software (other than the Software), and non-software-based systems (e.g. web sites, subscription services and physical materials). Stars Mobile takes a broad view of what constitutes an "unfair advantage" in the context of any use of EPA Tools and specific guidance can be found in our Third Party Tools and Services Policy. For the avoidance of doubt, what is prohibited encompasses but is not limited to accessing or compiling information on other players beyond that which the User has personally observed through the User's own game play or receiving advice, direction or assistance on how to play, in real time, that goes beyond a basic level.

5.5

AUTOMATIC PLAYERS (BOTS). The use of artificial intelligence including, without limitation, "robots" is strictly forbidden in connection with the Service. All actions taken in relation to the Service by a User must be executed personally by players through the user interface accessible by use of the Software, and without the assistance of any form of artificial intelligence.

5.6

EPA PREVENTION. You agree that Stars Mobile may take steps to detect and prevent the use of prohibited EPA Tools. These steps may include, but are not limited to, examination of software programs running concurrently with the Stars Mobile Software on the User's PC or Device. You agree that you will not attempt to bypass, interfere with, or block such steps, including, without limitation, the use of third party software that bypasses, interferes with, or blocks such steps.

5.7

CHIP-DUMPING. Chip-dumping occurs when any User intentionally loses a poker hand in order to deliberately transfer his chips to another User. Any User who participates or attempts to participate in chip-dumping with any other User, while using the Service may be permanently banned from using the Service and their User account may be terminated immediately. In such circumstances Stars Mobile will be under no obligation to return or credit to you any chips that may be in your User account at such time.

5.8

FRAUDULENT BEHAVIOR. In the event that Stars Mobile deems that a User has engaged or attempted to engage in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity while using either the Service or any of the other services, products or facilities of the wider Flutter Group, including without limitation, engaging in any of the activities set forth in this Clause 5 or any other game manipulation, or the making of any fraudulent payment, including without limitation, use of a stolen credit card or fraudulent chargeback or money laundering, Stars Mobile shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including, but not limited to:

7. BREACH
7.1

Without prejudice to any other rights of Stars Mobile, if a User breaches in whole or in part any provision contained herein, Stars Mobile reserves the right, to take such action as it sees fit, including terminating this Agreement or any other agreement in place between the User and any other member of the Flutter Group, immediately blocking the User's access to the Service or to any other service offered by the Flutter Group, terminating such User's account on the Sites or on any other sites operated by the Flutter Group, seizing or quarantining all Virtual Items held in the User's account on the Sites or on any other sites operated by the Flutter Group and/or taking legal action against such User. A breach of this Agreement by a User shall be deemed to be a breach of every other agreement between the User and a member of the Flutter Group.

7.2

You agree to fully indemnify, defend and hold harmless Stars Mobile, all other Flutter Group companies and their shareholders, directors and employees from and against all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including legal fees and any other charges whatsoever, howsoever caused, that may arise as a result of:

  1. your breach of this Agreement, in whole or in part;
  2. violation by you of any law or any third party rights; and
  3. use by you of the Service or use by any other person accessing the Service using your Login Credentials (as defined below), whether or not with your authorization.

8.3

If damages, except for such cases covered by Clauses 8.1 or 8.4, with respect to a breach of a contractual core duty are caused by slight negligence, Stars Mobile or any other member of the Flutter Group is liable only for the amount of the damage which was typically foreseeable.
