Changes will be effective: (i) thirty (30) days after the Company provides notice of the Changes, whether such notice is provided within the Service, is sent via email or otherwise; or (ii) when you opt-in or otherwise expressly agree to the Changes or a version of these Terms incorporating the Changes, whichever comes first. If you do not wish to continue using the Service under the new version of the Terms, you will no longer be able to access the Service.

If you gain access to the Service via the PC platform, you will be required to register your user information, such as username to display in the G-Loot service, email address, date of birth, and password. You guarantee that the information you provide to G-Loot upon registration, and at all other times, will be true, accurate, current, and complete. You also agree that you will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up-to-date at all times. You may be asked to verify your age and identity via a third-party provider.
All transactions are monitored for possible money laundering activity, cheating, and abuses of the platform, and any suspicious activity on your User Account could lead to you being reported to relevant authorities and the freezing and confiscation of funds. As long as your account is active and not subject to any bans, you can log in to your account and view a statement that would show recent transactions on that account. If you notice any mistakes, you must notify G-Loot immediately.

As you are responsible for all activities that occur on your account, you should keep the password confidential. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User Account and password and for restricting access to your computer or device, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your User Account or password. If you have reason to believe that your User Account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of your account ID or password), you will immediately notify us by submitting a request to our support team. You may be liable for the losses incurred by the Company or others due to any unauthorized use of your User Account.

You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
G-Loot does not allow refunds of deposits and/or payments. However, it remains at management’s discretion, in special circumstances, to determine whether a refund request for a deposit made or entry fee paid, should be granted.
Should you wish to request a refund, please immediately (and no later than 30 days after the disputed transaction) direct your case in writing to Customer Support.
Rejection of the request is the default to be expected for any kind of transaction older than 30 days.
G-Loot employees are only allowed to use the Services for the purpose of testing the user experience but may not gain or withdraw money. G-Loot directors, contractors, affiliates, or partners may have the right to use the Services without such limitation, but only if they do not have any access to non-public information relating to the Services or any other advantage that would make their participation unfair to other players using the Service.

Any form of cheating, or methods other than those intended to participate in competitions on G-Loot services, are strictly forbidden and will not be tolerated under any circumstances when playing G-Loot competitions or tournaments, or while the G-Loot software (where applicable) is running.
Examples of cheating can include but are not limited to
game file editing
use of macros
smurfing or the use of multiple game accounts while using G-Loot
bot play (playing against AI instead of real opponents to boost leaderboard scores)
account sharing (letting another User play on your G-Loot account)
using bugs to gain an advantage versus opponents
any third party software or tool that can reasonably give an unfair advantage and is not expressly allowed by the game’s original publisher
any action to intentionally alter or attempt to alter the playing conditions or the results of any game or match or attempts to interfere with another user’s connection to the game service through Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) or any other means.
If you have any questions about behaviors that constitute cheating, please contact the Customer Support team.
G-Loot reserves the right to declare void any winnings related to cheating, to reset Users’ stats, to exclude Users from any leaderboard, to confiscate Users’ funds, to ban Users for either a limited time period or a permanent ban. A ban or block of a User in one of G-Loot’s services or products will result in the User being banned or blocked from all of G-Loot services and products. For more information about bans and blocks, please read the FAQ.
Users are prohibited from engaging in harassment or discrimination on the Service based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or any other status or characteristic protected by law.
Participation in competitions
All competitions will be governed by these Terms along with any specific rules applicable at the time of the competition’s start. The specific rules for each competition will be available from time to time at the start of that competition. Such rules may be, but are not limited to, entry fees, the numbers of Users in the competition, duration of the competition, distribution of prizes, etc. When you enter a competition, you acknowledge that you have read and understood in full all the Terms and rules regarding the competitions offered by G-Loot as stated in the Service.
You affirm that at the time that you entered a competition, you had no knowledge as to the outcome of the respective competition. Entering competitions about which the User has gained access to insider information is not allowed. Where there is a suspicion of a violation of this rule, G-Loot retains the right to void the competition and refuse to pay out winnings. G-Loot also retains the right to take any further action to protect its legitimate interests and to comply with other laws and regulations. We retain the right to decline to accept entering any competition without providing any reason.
The list of competitions, their status, and details are available to the User on the Service after login. Any errors or mistakes regarding the details of a competition will not influence its validity. An entry fee that has been paid cannot be amended, withdrawn, or canceled by the User.
Should a competition that has a set number of participants according to its rules not reach full participation, winnings will be calculated on the accepted amount and number of participating users only.
Should a competition for any reason be stopped prematurely, before it finishes as set out by its rules, or before any winnings are distributed, the User will be refunded the whole amount of the entry fee/s paid to that competition.
G-Loot calculates the available funds, the pending funds, the funds reserved in ongoing competitions as well as the amount of the winnings. Unless proved otherwise, these amounts are considered as final and are deemed to be accurate.
G-Loot will never question you about the relevance of the competitions you wish to enter and will not be held responsible for the possible mistakes that could have been made when entering such competitions, including mistakes regarding the fee/s of the competitions.
Winnings will be paid into the User Account after the final winning result(s) is/are confirmed. However, G-Loot reserves the right to set aside any winnings should there be investigations into the result of a competition resulting from a suspicion of undue manipulation, cheating, or criminal activities that may have affected the result of the competition. If the irregularity is confirmed, G-Loot retains the right to declare void any related winnings as well as entry fees.
Should G-Loot become aware that a User has entered or participated in competitions using an account other than their own single account, all competitions and results, as well as winnings will be voided. G-Loot retains the right to take further action as deemed appropriate and necessary.
Communication errors do occasionally happen. Competition results are confirmed only when received on our servers.
Should there be a break in communication after you entered a competition and your entry has been received on our servers, it will still be considered valid. You will be informed that it has been accepted once communication is re-established, at which time the competition may have been settled. If the entry into a competition is not received at our servers then it will not be valid and the amount will not have been deducted from your account. The entry fee for each competition will be specified by G-Loot at the time of the competition.
G-Loot uses the Anybrain software service, developed by Anybrain S.A., which offers solutions for security, protection, and prevention of cheating and fraud in online services such as online games.
The software and services from Anybrain are independent from the client software it is implemented into.
The Anybrain service gathers personal information through users’ keyboard and mouse interaction while the G-Loot PC client, and the connected game application, is active on the user’s device.
The following information is processed by Anybrain: Device-ID, MAC-address, IP-address, keyboard and mouse data to identify a user’s behavioral pattern, namely: Speed and number of clicks on mouse and keyboard.
The purpose of the processing is to discover suspicious activity and behavior of users who participate in G-Loot competitions to ensure a cheat-free environment for our users and to prevent fraud and abuse.
Winnings & Payouts
The number of Users participating in a competition and their relative skills determine the result of the competition. Cash prizes will be deposited into the User Account and will usually be available within one (1) hour of a competition's conclusion. G-Loot reserves the right to change the fees for the Service at any time or impose additional fees or charges. Information about specific fees and charges will be made available to you before opting in or agreeing to participate in a competition or other service.
Where not intuitively given by the games’ existing dynamics, competition rules, or scoring, the controls and guidelines will be specified by G-Loot in relation to the competition before its inception. Any questions or comments regarding this information should be submitted to Customer Support.
G-Loot is not a financial institution, and no interest is paid on any funds, irrespective of the amount held in the User Account.
It is the responsibility of the User to keep track of winnings and report them to the proper authorities if the User resides in a jurisdiction where those winnings are taxable. Any amounts that are mistakenly credited to the User Account as winnings remain our property and will automatically be transferred from the User Account upon the error being noticed. Any winnings mistakenly credited to the User Account yet withdrawn by you will constitute a debt owed by you to us in the amount of such wrongfully attributed winnings.
When you request your first withdrawal from the User Account, you will be asked for (i) proof of your identity and (ii) your home address and to verify your identity via a third-party tool. If you are unable to provide this to us, to our reasonable satisfaction we may be unable to pay your requested withdrawal to you. We reserve the right to request this information for subsequent withdrawals too.
If you provide materially misleading, inaccurate, or incomplete information in the User Account, we will be entitled to terminate the User Account and cause you to forfeit any prizes you may have won as well as exercise any legal remedies we may have as a result of such conduct.
We reserve the right to refuse to accept any promotional offers that we make to you and to withdraw them at any time. Any promotional offer that we make is subject to change by us at any time. Any additional terms and conditions that apply to a promotional offer will be displayed in relation to it. By accepting a promotional offer and/or making use of a promotional offer, you are confirming that you agree to its terms and conditions.
G-Loot reserves the right, from time to time, to set limits on the maximum amount that the Users are allowed to deposit and withdraw, as well as the maximum balance allowed on the Users’ Account.
General Entry fee
The entry fee for each competition will be specified by G-Loot at the time of the competition.
An entry fee can only be paid/placed by a registered User, over a distance communication device such as a computer, mobile device, or over the Internet. An entry fee can only be paid/placed if the User has sufficient funds in their User Account. Once paid, an entry fee cannot be amended, withdrawn, or canceled by the User.
An entry fee is deemed to have been accepted as soon as it is received by the Service, validated, and processed. Confirmation is then sent to the User with a unique number and time stamp.
Term and termination
These Terms apply from the User’s registration of the User Account either via the website or via the PC platform and continue to apply until terminated by either the User or G-Loot. The User agrees that G-Loot, in its sole discretion and in accordance with these Terms, may terminate the User Account or the User's use of the Service. G-Loot may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing access to the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. The User agrees that any termination of the User access to the Service or any account the User may have or portion thereof may be effected without prior notice, and the User agrees that G-Loot shall not be liable to the User or any third party for any such termination. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of the Service may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies G-Loot may have under this Agreement or under law.
G-Loot may deem inactive User Accounts abandoned and close such abandoned User Accounts after a period of at least twelve (12) months of complete User inactivity, regardless of any unwithdrawn balance left on accounts.
You may terminate these Terms at any time and for any reason by going to your User Account web page and following the account closure process, or by submitting a request to Customer Support. Upon termination of the User Account, you must immediately discontinue use of the Services and the Software and the User Account and promptly uninstall and delete all copies of the Software. Immediately upon termination of the User Account, all licenses and rights granted to you under these Terms automatically expire. Your obligation to pay accrued Fees will survive any termination of these Terms.
After termination of your User Account, you will not be able to open a new User Account, but you may under certain circumstances be allowed to reinstate your old account if you wish to do so. You should contact Customer Support to request an account reinstatement.
Any sections of these Terms that, either explicitly or by their nature, must remain in effect even after termination of the Agreements, shall survive termination.
The Service and any Software made available in conjunction with or through the Service are provided “as is”, “with all faults”, and “as available” and without warranties of any kind either express or implied. To the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law, G-Loot disclaims that all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, access or use and non-infringement of proprietary rights.
G-Loot does not warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the Service in terms of its correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. G-Loot does not warrant that the features contained in the Service and Software will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Service, Software, or the server that makes it available is free of viruses, bugs, program limitations, or other harmful components. The User understands and agrees that the User downloads or otherwise obtains material or other data through the use of the Service at the User’s own discretion and risk and that the User will be solely responsible for any damage to the User’s computer system or loss of data that results from such material or data.
Return & complaint rights
Should you wish to raise a complaint or request a refund, please do so by contacting the Customer Support team. We care about your gaming experience and will review your complaint with priority. G-Loot is committed to ensuring that any received complaints or disputes are dealt with in a fair, open, and timely manner.
Limitations of liability
Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall G-Loot or its affiliates, contractors, employees, agents, or third-party partners or suppliers, be liable to the User for any special, indirect, incidental, consequential, or exemplary damages that arise out of, relate to or result from the User’s use or the inability to use the company materials, the Service itself (including any loss or disclosure of assets), or any other interactions with G-Loot, even if G-Loot or a G-Loot authorized representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, and in such an event, the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to the User. In such cases, G-Loot’s liability will be limited to the extent permitted by law.
In no event shall G-Loot or its affiliates, contractors, employees, agents, or third-party partners or suppliers’ total liability to the User for all damages, losses, and causes of action arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Service and Software (whether in contract, tort, warranty, or otherwise) be higher than the available funds on the User’s Account, and/or an amount equal to the User’s entry fee for the matter in question, whichever is higher.
The above limitations shall also apply with respect to damages incurred by reason of any products or services sold or provided to you by third parties other than G-Loot and received by the User through, or advertised on, the Service or received by the User through any links provided on the Service.
G-Loot is not to be held responsible for the consequences caused by the breakdown of any device or software, directly managed or outsourced, which could lead to a total or partial reduction to the access of its services, via the Internet or by phone.
G-Loot is not responsible for any consequences resulting from major incidents such as any strike, terrorist activities, political crisis, war, saturation of telecommunication networks, or natural catastrophe; which could lead to a total or partial reduction to the access to its services, on the Internet or by phone.
Governing law and disputes
Unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction, these Agreements are subject to the laws of Sweden, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles.
You and G-Loot agree to resolve any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement through informal negotiations foremost. If such negotiations are not successful, the dispute shall be finally settled by the courts of Sweden with the Stockholm District Court (Sw. Stockholms tingsrätt) as first instance, without prejudice to your right of recourse to other courts under applicable law to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy that arises out of or in connection with these Agreements.
The User agrees that any claims subject to dispute must be made in your individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, in so far as permitted under mandatory law.
G-Loot has the right to assign these Terms or any part of them, and G-Loot may delegate any of its obligations under these Terms. You may not assign these Terms or any part of them, nor transfer or sublicense your rights under these Terms, to any third party.
If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
This is the entire agreement between us relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except in writing, signed by both parties, or by a change to these Terms or guidelines made by G-Loot.
Waivers of our rights
A provision of these Terms may be waived only by a written instrument executed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision. The failure of any party at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms shall in no manner affect such party’s right at a later time to enforce the same. A waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms shall not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of these Terms.
This Agreement and related Guidelines, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you but may be assigned by G-Loot without restriction.
The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms, and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
