government-issued ID and proof of a US physical address.
2.2 Restrictions on Eligibility Based on Law. The laws and
regulations governing sweepstakes, contests, and tournaments with entry
fees and/or prizes are established by each individual state, not by the
federal government. It is your responsibility to check the laws in your
state to determine if you can participate in a tournament on the Site. If
you are physically located in a state which prohibits your participation

participate in the tournaments offered by this Site.
2.3 Additional Restrictions on Eligibility. The following persons
are ineligible to receive any prize offered on the Site: (a) employees,
owners and officers of ArcadeWeb and its Related Companies, (b) the foregoing

immediate family members include parents, siblings, spouses, children, or

employee, officer, or director of ArcadeWeb or its Related Companies.

2.5 Disclaimers of Liability Regarding Your Ability to

damages, costs, or expenses of any kind and under any theory of law,
equity, contract, tort or otherwise, if: (a) laws applicable to you
restrict or prohibit your participation in Site activities, including

its determination that you are located in a jurisdiction outside of the
United States or which prohibits or restricts your participation, even if
such determination by ArcadeWeb was inaccurate, negligent, willful or
malicious. However, ArcadeWeb’s ability to block your access to the
Site does not mean and should not be construed to mean that ArcadeWeb is
responsible for your lawful use of the Site; it is your responsibility to
make sure that your use of the Site is not prohibited by any applicable
law or regulation.

understand and agree that we reserve the right to, in our sole
discretion, deny access to the Site or any Site activity to any person or
entity and that we and our Related Companies shall have no liability of any kind or based on

To the extent prizes are offered on the Site, a person can only win such prizes up to an aggregate
value of $500 (USD) during any calendar year. You will not receive prizes in excess of $500 (USD) for a calendar year and
you are deemed to have waived any right you might otherwise have to such additional prizes.
Our systems may fail to restrict users to the above limitations due to circumstances out of our control, such as,
but not limited to, when individuals file a joint tax return. In such an instance where a user has won prizes or
received auction winnings with an aggregate value of $600 (USD) or more during any calendar year, the
United States Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") regulations currently require ArcadeWeb to send a Form 1099 to
such users. Accordingly, and in order to fulfill our legal requirements, if you receive prizes or auction
winnings in that amount during any calendar year, it is your responsibility to disclose that to us by providing
us a completed and signed IRS Form W-9, (which can be found
here) and to report such prizes
and auction winnings as income on your tax return regardless if you receive an IRS Form 1099.
Although we will use commercially reasonable efforts to comply with
and implement the IRS requirements accurately, promptly and fairly, you
agree that neither ArcadeWeb nor its Related Companies will be liable to you or
any third party for any liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses of any
kind and under any theory of law, equity, contract, tort or otherwise
which you or such third party may incur as a result of any acts, errors
or omissions of ArcadeWeb or its Related Companies in their efforts to implement
and comply with the IRS requirements. Without limiting the foregoing, you
agree that you remain solely responsible for paying all federal and other
taxes in accordance with the laws that apply in your state, province,
and/or country of residence, and that you will indemnify and hold
harmless ArcadeWeb and its Related Companies from any and all liabilities,
costs, expenses or damages incurred by any one or more of them as a
result of: (a) your failure to timely pay applicable taxes, or (b)
inaccuracies or omissions in any W-9 or other IRS form which you submit

discussion of how to opt out of emails.
SECTION 8: TOURNAMENT RULES AND PROCEDURES
8.1 Odds of Winning. Your chance of winning a tournament offered
on the Site depends on the number and skill level of the other players
participating in such tournaments; precise odds of winning are therefore
unavailable. Generally only the top finisher of a Tournament will win a prize.
There is a limit of one prize per person per day.
8.2 Prizes. Prizes are generally merchandise or awards and are
sent directly to the physical address provided by the winner or to your
PayPal account, as applicable. You may request to be given an award of
cash in lieu of merchandise; however, ArcadeWeb is under no obligation to
grant such request. If ArcadeWeb elects, in its sole discretion, to offer
a cash payment in lieu of any prize won, ArcadeWeb reserves the right to
determine the exact amount of the cash offer which may be less than the
value of the prize originally offered. You may elect to accept the cash
offer, accept the original prize, or decline both and take nothing; the
decision you make must be communicated to the Site via email. If you
elect to accept the cash offer, you may be required to obtain a PayPal
account to receive the payment. If you decline both the merchandise prize
and the cash offer, you will be deemed to have waived your right to
receive either one. If a prize is not claimed within seven (7) days
following the announcement of the winner, the prize will be waived and
the winner shall have no further right to the same. If a “Limited Entry”
tournament closes prematurely for any reason, ArcadeWeb reserves the
right to modify, in its sole discretion, the type or amount of the prize
associated with such tournament, taking into account how full the
tournament was at the time it was closed and other factors.
8.3 Merchandise Prize Substitution. ArcadeWeb reserves the right
to substitute for any merchandise prize a cash equivalent (determined by
ArcadeWeb’s estimated cost to obtain the merchandise prize and not the
manufacturer’s suggested retail price or any other price) if (a) the
level of participation in a tournament is lower than anticipated by
ArcadeWeb, (b) a prize has become unavailable, (c) there are logistical
difficulties in shipping the prize, or (d) for any other business reason.
In this case, you may be required to obtain a PayPal account to receive
the cash payment. Players cannot return prizes for cash credits or
exchange prizes which have already been shipped for cash credits or other
prizes or credits.
8.4 Taxes; Delivery. Users are responsible for any income taxes
associated with their receipt of prizes from ArcadeWeb. Shipping costs
for prizes consisting of merchandise are borne by ArcadeWeb; provided,
however, if a prize is returned as undeliverable or ArcadeWeb is unable
to verify the address provided, ArcadeWeb, in its discretion, may require
the winner to pay shipment costs or void the prize and the winner shall
have no further right to same. Shipment will be F.O.B. Origin; this means
that ArcadeWeb is not liable for any damage incurred during shipping.
Most merchandise will ship (but is not guaranteed to ship) within sixty
(60) days of the date the prize is claimed by the winning player.
However, delays in delivery may occur and you understand and hereby agree
that neither ArcadeWeb nor its affiliates nor the manufacturer or vendor
of such merchandise will be liable to you for damages, expenses, costs,
or losses or any kind resulting from any such delay.
8.5 Merchandise Prize Warranties. Merchandise awarded as prizes
or gifts in connection with your participation in Site activities is
provided and delivered “AS IS”. ArcadeWeb offers no warranty of any kind
and expressly disclaims any warranty, express or implied, with respect to
any such merchandise including, without limitation, the implied
warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or
warranties implied through custom or trade, or warranties of genuineness
or authenticity. The only warranty associated with merchandise prizes or
gifts is the warranty, if any, supplied by the manufacturer of the
merchandise. You expressly agree to release and hereby do release
ArcadeWeb and its Related Companies from any and all damages, costs, expenses,
claims, liabilities or losses of any kind which you (or anyone claiming
through you) or any third party may incur as a result of a defect in any
merchandise which may be provided to you as a prize or gift or otherwise
in connection with your participation in Site activities.
8.6 Travel Prizes. Prizes involving travel and tourism will depart
from and return to a specified list of cities. Any player who wins such a
prize and wishes to depart from a city not on the specified list will be
required to provide his or her own transportation to one of the specified
cities. Information required to make the reservations for a travel prize,
including the names and ages of all travelers, departure city, and, if
applicable, choice of travel dates, must be provided within seven (7)
days of the initial request for such information or the prize will be
forfeited. All travel is undertaken expressly at the winner’s own
risk. ArcadeWeb and its Related Companies are not responsible for any damage, injury, expense, cost,
loss or other liability incurred by you or any third party in connection
with: (a) any travel or travel-related activities, and/or (b) any
cancellation, postponement, rescheduling or quality control issues with
respect to fulfillment by the third-party travel or tourism
8.7 Other Prize Restrictions. For prizes requiring local, state or
federal licensing or approval (e.g. a driver’s license for an

at the Site’s sole discretion. The Site will display both the number of Reward Tokens that you have earned
and the number of Reward Tokens that you have available. Available Reward Tokens will decrease as you
make a new bid or add to an existing big. Reward Tokens will be removed from the total when you win an action.
If you don’t win the auction, your Reward Tokens will be made available once again when the auction closes.
9.3 Using Reward Tokens. Once Reward Tokens are earned, you can elect whether to use all,
none, or some of your Reward Tokens toward a current auction in the Site’s Reward Center.
There are multiple tiers in the Reward Center. Each tier starts with a different minimum bid amount of Reward Tokens.
If you have enough available Reward Tokens to place a minimum starting bid in more than one Tier,
you may only place a bid in the highest tier that you qualify for, based on the number of Reward Tokens you have.
Any Reward Tokens not used are maintained in your account and are available to be used in the same manner in a future auction.
The Site, at its sole discretion, may decide to allow users to use their Reward Tokens for other purposes.
9.4 Auction Winner. At the conclusion of the time period provided on the Site, the winner of each auction
will be the individual that was willing to use the most Reward Tokens to receive the listed item.
A person can only win one auction per day. If a person bids on multiple auctions in a single day and is
the person that is willing to use the most Reward Tokens in more than one auction, the person will only
win the auction in which they bid the highest amount of Reward Tokens. A person is not able to win an
auction the same day they win a tournament. The Site’s decisions are final and binding.
The item will be electronically shipped to the highest bidder using the contact details the Site has on
file for the individual. After you have won an auction, the amount of Reward Tokens that won you the auction
will be automatically deduced from your account.
9.5 Limitations. There will be a daily limit on the amount of Reward Tokens that you can earn regardless
of method of earning Reward Tokens. There is also a daily limit of Reward Tokens that can be earned on a single computer.
Once you have reached the daily limit (either per account or per computer), the Site will inform you that you have
reached the daily limit. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address.
Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of Reward Tokens by using multiple/different email addresses,
identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s plays and that participant
may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.
Reward Tokens may not be shared or transferred to other users. Reward Tokens may not sold or traded.
If a user does not have any Reward Token activity for three (3) consecutive months, the user will automatically lose all of his or her Reward Tokens.
Reward Tokens have no cash value.
9.6 Verification. Potential auction winners are subject to verification by the Site whose decisions are
final and binding.
9.7 Modification / Termination. The Site reserves the right to modify the Reward Tokens at anytime.
Additionally the Site may terminate use of such Reward Tokens at anytime without prior notice.
