Description Of Service
ESLIVEGAMING is a site that enables gamers to set up free or cash based contests in competitive skill games including, but not limited to League of Legends or Fifa16. Participants (and only participants) in such contests will be able to place a pre-agreed amount of money as a Buy in or fee and the winner of the contest wins the total amount placed, minus a commission fee for us. ESLIVEGAMING contest services are categorized as Games of Skill and the cash or prize winnings of any player or team are the result of skill, not chance. Registered users who participate in cash based contests must first have deposited their Buy in’s and/or fee’s with the offered depositing methods to ESLIVEGAMING before the Event started.
You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in contests with Buy in’s or fee’s offered by the Website. You warrant that you are not prohibited from assenting to this Agreement by any preexisting Agreement. In jurisdictions, territories, and locations where the minimum age for permissible use of the Website is greater than 18 years old, you must meet the age requirement in your local jurisdiction or territory. You must be a citizen or resident of a country (“Territory”) where skill gaming is legal. You must be physical located in a Territory in which participation in the Service you select, or the Site is unrestricted by applicable laws.
Additional Information for U.S. Citizens and Residents: The laws governing contests, tournaments and skilled gaming with entry fees and/or prizes are established by each individual state, not by the federal government. As such, ESLIVEGAMING CANNOT, and therefore DOES NOT, offer fee-based contests and tournaments or games with prizes to residents of the following states: Arizona, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, North Dakota, Vermont and Louisiana. Therefore we do not offer paid entry games to residents of those states.
All players may play free or non-prizing contests on the Site. Players from certain Territories may play entry-fee or cash contests. ESLIVEGAMING is under no obligation to, and does not, accept players from all Territories and may at any time refuse players participate in events with no reason.
If we request registration information from you, you must provide us with accurate and complete information and must update the information when it changes.
ESLIVEGAMING employees may use the Website, and will from time to time do so for the purpose of testing the site user experience, socializing and competing with customers to build community, and other reasonable and fair uses at the discretion of ESLIVEGAMING.
GAMEPLAY / CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
Users will be able to visit the Website and view the games available for entry (the "Contests"). Each individual Contest that is not free to enter has an entry fee listed in EUR. When you select to participate in a Contest and complete the entry process, the listed amount of EUR has to be paid in advance to ESLIVEGAMING to the given payment method.
Posting a contest: You agree to the appointment of ESLIVEGAMING as your agent for communication with respect to posted contests and communications matching your contests. Posting a contest means that the contest is open for acceptance by the Site’s community.
You do not challenge the Site; you only challenge other users who are registered to use the Site’s Services.
You are entirely responsible for the information that you provide us concerning the contest you post. We will not inquire into the reasonableness of any contest you may post. We will not be liable for incorrect entries made by you on the Site, including data input errors.
Once you have posted a contest, you agree to leave that contest open for acceptance or you hide the contest as hidden, subject to termination of the offer by us or your valid cancellation/removal of the offer. ESLIVEGAMING may determine, in its absolute discretion, when the Site is open for the posting of contests and may close the Site at any time in its absolute discretion.
Accepted Contests: When accepting a contest posted on the Site, you are not competing with the Site but exclusivly with other registered users using this Site.

By entering a Contest, entrants agree to be bound by these Rules and the decisions of ESLIVEGAMING, which shall be final and binding in all respects. The Company, at its sole discretion, may disqualify any entrant from a Contest, refuse to award benefits or prizes and require the return of any prizes, if the entrant engages in conduct the Company deems to be improper, unfair or otherwise adverse to the operation of the Contest or is in any way detrimental to other entrants.

ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THE WEBSITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF ANY CONTEST IS A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, ESLIVEGAMING RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND OTHER REMEDIES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
All entries become the property of ESLIVEGAMING and will not be acknowledged or returned.
To be eligible to enter any contest or receive any prize, the Authorized Player may be required to provide ESLIVEGAMING with additional documentation and/or information to verify the identity of the Authorized Account Holder, and to provide proof that all eligibility requirements are met. In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of an Authorized Account Holder, ESLIVEGAMING will, in its sole and absolute discretion, utilize certain information collected by ESLIVEGAMING to assist in verifying the identity and/or eligibility of such Players.
Where legal, both entrants and winner consent to the use of their name, voice, and likeness/photograph in and in connection with the development, production, distribution and/or exploitation of any Contest or the Website. Winners agree that from the date of notification by ESLIVEGAMING of their status as a potential winner and continuing until such time when ESLIVEGAMING informs them that they no longer need to do so that they will make themselves available to ESLIVEGAMING for publicity, advertising, and promotion activities.
ESLIVEGAMING reserves the right to move entrants from the Contests they have entered to substantially similar Contests in certain situations determined by ESLIVEGAMING in its sole discretion.
CONTEST RESULTS & PRIZES
Contest results and prize calculations are based on the final scoring results at the completion of the last eSports game of each individual Contest. Once Contest results are reviewed and graded, prizes are awarded. The scoring results of a Contest will not be changed, except in ESLIVEGAMING'' sole discretion.
ESLIVEGAMING reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to deny any contestant the ability to participate in head-to-head contests for any reason whatsoever. Further, ESLIVEGAMING may, in its sole and absolute discretion, invalidate any head-to-head contest result for the purposes of preventing abusive and/or any unfair or potentially unlawful activity, or in the event that there is a risk of any such abusive, illegal, or unfair activity.
At the conclusion of each Contest, prizes will be awarded within 24 hours after the Event finished, except in circumstances where technical failure or other reasons prevent such timely payout. Prizes won are added to the winning participants account balance.
Guaranteed prizes are offered in connection with some of the Contests offered by the Website. Each Contest or promotion is governed by its own set of official rules. We encourage you to read such Contest and promotions Rules before participating.
Contest prize payouts will be published with the creation of each new contest. ESLIVEGAMING reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend the contests (or any portion thereof) should virus, bugs, unauthorized human intervention, or other causes corrupt administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper operation of the contest (or any portion thereof) warrant doing so. Notification of such changes may be provided by ESLIVEGAMING to its customers but will not be required.
Payment and Withdrawal of Prizes
If a player meets all requirements to a contest or Event ESLIVEGAMING may, at its sole discretion, charge fees to participating in such events. To join paid contests, you must provide payment information and make an deposit to the given payment options. Payment is processed through a third-party payment processor PayPal. In future other payment options will be available through our third-party payment processor.
You agree that you are solely responsible for paying all applicable taxes, duties, levies, or charges imposed by any governmental entity anywhere in the world in connection with your use of the Website and/or purchase of services through the Website to that applicable governmental entity. You understand and agree that ESLIVEGAMING will not be held liable for any user’s failure to complete a transaction entered into through the Website.
When a member participates in a cash-entry contest or tournament (a "Cash Game"), the entry fees for such Cash Games need to be paid immediately from the contestant. Members should also be aware that the total entry fees paid by members in any given Cash Game are not paid out as prizes, as ESLIVEGAMING retains part of the entry fees paid as a service fee on all Cash Games played. This fee allows for the continued operation and maintenance of the Site and the development of additional features and content for the Site in the future. The amount of the prize (or prizes) for each Cash Game is displayed in the "Payout" field of the contest card and varies depending on the Cash Game being played, the size of the entry fees, the number of prizes, and the number of people playing in the Cash Game. At present, the cash prizes in each cash-entry match represent 80% of the entry fees although this is subject to change without further notice to you. So our commission in general is 20% of the contest entry fees.
Promotional deposits, credits, and other bonuses may not be withdrawn from a ESLIVEGAMING account unless appropriate terms of the promotion are achieved first by the user.
No substitution or transfer of prize is permitted, except that ESLIVEGAMING reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal value or greater if the advertised prize is unavailable. All prizes are awarded "as is" and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability for a particular purpose).
Any withdrawal requests, after approved by ESLIVEGAMING, will be credited back to the same payment method or PayPal account. Bank transfer is also possible by providing your International Bank Account Number (IBAN) in order for ESLIVEGAMING to make a bank transfer within seven (7) days of providing your IBAN.
All payments are final. No refunds will be issued. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed submitted by the person in whose name the account was registered.
