- TOURNAMENTS, ENTRY FEES, VIRTUAL ITEMS
The following tournaments are available on Skibre.
3.1.1 Free-to-play players (SOLO PRACTICE TOURNAMENTS)
Users may be given access to “free-to-play games” and/or “Practice Tournaments.”
3.1.2 SKIBRE VIRTUAL TOURNAMENTS using SKIBRE TOKENS (“Skibre Virtual Tournament’)
Users may purchase Skibre TOKENS to play and compete in “Skibre virtual tournaments”. SKIBRE TOKENS are not legal tender or currency of any kind. No interest is paid or earned on any SKIBRE TOKEN balance. SKIBRE Tokens have no real-world value, and only allow for play on SKIBRE. SKIBRE Tokens can never be redeemed for real money, products, prizes, or any other items of monetary value on SKIBRE or from any other party. You also may not purchase, sell, or exchange Virtual Credits outside of SKIBRE. SKIBRE TOKENS are not transferable to or shareable with other players.
Users can purchase SKIBRE TOKENS to participate in “Skibre Virtual Tournaments.” Users can also acquire tokens by participating in select activities in the app including competition, surveys and marketing campaigns. Skibre prohibits and does not recognize any purported transfers of SKIBRE TOKENS outside of the Skibre platform or service, or the purported sale, lease, gift or trade in the “real world” of anything that appears or originates outside of Skibre.
These SKIBRE TOKENS are used to pay as an entry fee to participate in the “SKIBRE Virtual Tournaments.” Users can win tokens in the SKIBRE Virtual Tournaments which can be used to play more games and/or purchase virtual items. You acknowledge that certain additional in-game functionality may only be accessible in exchange for tokens.
Users may participate in various types of tournaments hosted on Skibre. Skibre at its own discretion may host 1-on-1 or leaderboard tournaments. Skibre reserves the right to decide the number of winners in a leaderboard tournament as well as the number of Skibre tokens winners can win. By participating in the tournament, users agree to be bound by the Skibre terms and conditions.
Each user acknowledges that the outcome of the matches and tournaments offered on the site are directly related to the number of members participating, and the skill levels of each member participating. Skibre does not comment or have knowledge of the probability of one member winning a match vs. another member, and makes no representations about an individual member’s chances of winning. Players in Token Tournaments will be matched with players of the same skill level using Skibre’s player-matchmaking algorithm.
3.2 ENTRY FEES
To participate in tournaments, users can use SKIBRE TOKENS for the SKIBRE VIRTUAL TOURNAMENTS.
Skibre reserves the right to modify the entry fees and types of tournament.
Upon participation in a particular match or tournament, the player simultaneously and irrevocably authorizes Skibre to deduct an entry fee. Furthermore, Skibre is also given authorization to award players who won.
No entry fee is incurred for practice games.
Entry fees vary and are displayed before participation in a match. Upon beginning a match, the entry fee is deducted from the particular member’s player account. If sufficient funds are not available, then the player cannot take part in the particular match.
Skibre reserves the right to determine the entry fee. Entry fees represent a “platform fee” to Skibre made solely for facilities provided by the site for the setting up and management of tournaments. By participating in tournaments on the Skibre app and paying this fee to Skibre, each member acknowledges that these funds are held by Skibre for such services and that the member grants an irrevocable authority to Skibre to award the winner of the tournament the prize associated with such tournament. Users should also be aware that the total entry fees collected by Skibre in any given TOURNAMENT are not paid out as prizes, as Skibre retains part of the entry fees paid as a service fee on all tournaments 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 Prizes in each tournament represent an amount determined by Skibre in its absolute discretion and is subject to change without further notice to you.
The potential prize is displayed at the beginning of each match.
If a player aborts a game, either purposefully or due to technical problems that cannot be attributed to Skibre, then the score that was last transmitted to Skibre will be counted as the result.
The results and winners of each tournament offered on the site will be determined by Skibre, and such determinations are final. By signing up, joining and/or participating in any tournament, you agree to be bound by these determinations.
3.3 VIRTUAL ITEMS
SKIBRE TOKENS may be used to purchase virtual items. In purchasing, you may be presented with multiple Virtual Items bundles, with different virtual currency options if applicable, and with different prices and amounts of Virtual Items to choose from. Please select the bundle that you wish to purchase, review this selection and, if you are happy, please use your tokens to purchase. The price of Virtual Items is as stated at the time you place your order, except in the case of obvious error. We try and ensure that all prices stated are accurate but errors may occur. We have the right to change the purchase price for Virtual Items at any time, before you purchase the Virtual Items. Subject to applicable law and regulation, the price of Virtual Items may vary between users depending on a number of factors including differing exchange rates, territories and legal limitations. All purchased or allocated Virtual Items will be assigned to the account that is linked to it. Virtual items are non-transferrable
When you use your SKIBRE TOKENS to acquire Virtual Items, the relevant amount of SKIBRE TOKENS will automatically be deducted from your account.
We can at any time, without notifying you, vary the scope, variety and type of Virtual Items. Skibre is not obliged to make, or continue to make, any specific Virtual Item. We may also restrict or vary the type of Virtual Items available to you based on your country of residence.
We may from time to time limit the use of Virtual Items, including applying limits to the number of Virtual Items allocated to your account at any time, and/or the number of Virtual Items usable or redeemable within a given time period.
When you buy Virtual Items, you are buying a limited personal revocable licence to use the Virtual Items. You agree that the Virtual Items do not constitute personal property and SKIBRE TOKENS are not legal tender or currency of any kind. All Virtual Items purchased by you are non-refundable. Skibre is entitled to expire, withdraw, replace, restrict or otherwise change any Virtual Item at any time. You have certain rights in respect of the Virtual Items. These include that we have the right to supply the Virtual Items to you and that the Virtual Items will be of satisfactory quality and as described. You have certain legal remedies if we breach any of these rights. Nothing in these Virtual Items Terms is intended to affect these legal rights or other rights to which you may also be entitled.
By purchasing Virtual Items from us, you agree that we can transfer them to your account as soon as we can. By agreeing to these terms, each time you click to confirm a purchase using your SKIBRE TOKENS, you acknowledge that you expressly consent to the supply of the Virtual Items immediately and acknowledge that you will lose your right to change your mind and cancel the order.
We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently ban your account if you violate the terms in Skibre. If we temporarily or permanently ban your account, we may remove any or all of the Virtual Items in your account. If this happens, you are not entitled to any reimbursement, refund or any other compensation, except at our sole discretion.
- GAME PLAY
The site is not responsible for technical, hardware or software malfunctions, lost or unavailable network connections, disconnects from your game play on your platform, or any incorrect or inaccurate results that may be posted on your online game. You may not: (a) gain unauthorized access to the site’s systems or any account (other than your own), interfere with the communications, procedures or performance of the site or deliberately damage or undermine the site; (b) affect the outcome of your online game play on your platform by means of or with the assistance of macros, bots, automated programs, screen analysis utilities, player collusion, any type of modifications, memory readers, telepathy, alien technology or similar methods or to otherwise commit fraud in relation to the site; or (c) alter the human skill component of any game played on your platform. Any attempt to do so is a violation of both civil and criminal laws and will result not only in the termination of your user account. The site, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to terminate any person’s account who is suspected of tampering with their game results for the skill-based tournament entered, or who otherwise violates these rules and to seek legal enforcement to the greatest extent possible, including referral to criminal prosecution authorities.
First time offenders deemed to have knowingly violated the terms and conditions may receive an initial warning along with a minimum penalty of a thirty (30) day account suspension. Repeat offenders will be deemed to be intentionally violating the terms and conditions and will face a minimum six (6) month suspension for a second violation and permanent suspension for a third violation.
Any dispute filed without evidence will be considered invalid.
Abusive behaviour on platform: any abusive, obscene, lewd, threatening or insulting behaviour by a user towards Skibre support staff or other players on the Skibre site will result in their immediate suspension for an indefinite period of time as determined by Skibre support staff. Sending multiple tickets associated with the same issue will result in disciplinary action following the suspension guideline.
Lagging and ip booting: users who are caught lagging/ip booting matches will face an automatic loss and suspension. The suspension penalty will follow the suspension guideline listed above. When disputing a lagging match, video evidence of the lag is required in order for your dispute to be validated. You must be able to provide video evidence that clearly identifies the exit of the match. When playing a match with a poor connectivity level, be sure to quit before either you or your opponent gain a significant advantage in the match. When a user disconnects from a match while their opponent has a significant advantage, the user who disconnected will receive an automatic loss. If the match is played and completed in its entirety, the results of the match will stand. The Skibre customer support team has the sole discretion to adjust end match results at any time.
Skibre does not process payments. A third party payment provider or the app store itself handles payments. If you have any issues or problems with payment, you should therefore contact the third party payment provider or the app store directly.
If you wish to purchase SKIBRE TOKEN PACKAGES through Skibre store, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected.
Skibre is revocably authorized, but not obligated, to accept payments via credit card, direct debit, and other forms of payment. The user irrevocably agrees that Skibre may inform the user’s financial institution (or any agency that is commissioned by Skibre to collect any outstanding funds) of the user’s complete name, date of birth, and address if the user’s direct debit cannot be honored. Furthermore, the user agrees that his financial institution (or any agency that is commissioned by Skibre to collect any outstanding funds) may be transferred Skibre’s information, which may also be saved for the purpose of processing the direct debit until the claim has been met.
Funds, entry fees, and processing fees are considered to have been paid once they have been irrevocably credited to the Skibre bank account and deducted from the member’s player account.
If a user incurs any additional charges for a monetary transaction, especially in the case of a denied payment (such as denied transfer, denied credit card payment) or due to increased bank processing fto for transfers from foreign countries or into foreign countries, then Skibre is authorized to deduct these fees from the user account. The assertion of any further damages, namely those for the compensation of third party processing of the denied payment (such as collection agency and attorney costs) is always reserved. The user agrees to assume all costs that may be attributed to him when funds credited to his account (such as cancellation of a direct debit, insufficient funds, of incorrectly submitted account information) are reversed. Furthermore, in cases such as this Skibre is authorized to organize a collection agency in order to collect the outstanding bills, also including any that are incurred through the hiring of the collection agency.
By providing Skibre with a payment method, you:
(a) represent that you are authorised to use the payment method that you provided and that any payment information you provide is true and accurate;
(b) authorise Skibre to charge you for the services using your preferred payment method; and
(c) authorise Skibre to charge you for any paid feature of the services that you choose to sign up for or use while these terms of service are in force.

Member Feedback Policy
While using the services, and as a continuing condition of your use of the site, you agree to comply with the site’s policy on feedback. Abuse of the site’s feedback system undermines the integrity of the feedback system and decreases trust within the community. Skibre is not legally responsible for the remarks that members post, even if those remarks are defamatory. However, this law does not protect the person who leaves the feedback, therefore the member would be responsible for it. There are limited occasions when Skibre will remove feedback comments.
Skibre will remove feedback ratings and comments if they meet the standard for feedback abuse or members mutually agree. Feedback that meets any of the circumstances below is feedback abuse and may be subject to removal:
Skibre is provided with a court order finding that the feedback is libelous, slanderous, defamatory or otherwise illegal.
The feedback comment contains profane, vulgar, obscene, or racist language or adult material.
The feedback comment contains personal identifying information about another member, including real name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc..
The feedback comment contains links or scripts.
Feedback left by members who are indefinitely suspended for certain policy violations or are in violation of the terms and conditions.
If members suspect that feedback left for them is in violation of the site’s feedback policy and constitutes abuse, they are encouraged to email us to report this violation. Skibre will also offer the opportunity to members to withdraw feedback if both members mutually agree to the removal of a specified comment or feedback rating.
You may provide us either directly at the email address provided in our website or via third party sites and tools with information and feedback concerning errors, suggestions for improvements, ideas, problems, complaints, and other matters related to our Service (“Feedback”). You acknowledge and agree that: (i) you shall not retain, acquire or assert any intellectual property right or other right, title or interest in or to the Feedback; (ii) Company may have development ideas similar to the Feedback; (iii) Feedback does not contain confidential information or proprietary information from you or any third party; and (iv) Company is not under any obligation of confidentiality with respect to the Feedback. In the event the transfer of the ownership to the Feedback is not possible due to applicable mandatory laws, you grant Company and its affiliates an exclusive, transferable, irrevocable, free-of-charge, sub-licensable, unlimited and perpetual right to use (including copy, modify, create derivative works, publish, distribute and commercialize) Feedback in any manner and for any purpose.
