  1. Termination

eMasters reserves the right to terminate your account and limit or prohibit your participation in any game or tournament. By registering for an account and/or participating in any tournament or game offered in the Website, you agree to allow eMasters to access your account’s information to investigate complaints or other abuse allegations.

If applicable, all amounts charged (deposits), minus administrative fees and withdrawals, will be returned to the User. All earnings (if any) may be voided at the sole discretion of eMasters. Any person whose access has been suspended or rescinded can not register or access the Website again without prior written consent from eMasters. You are responsible for everything that is done in or through your account while you are a User.

You have the right to close your account at any moment by contacting Customer Support. eMasters will respond to your request within a reasonable period, provided that you continue to assume responsibility for all the activities in your account until such termination has been completed. eMasters has the right to terminate these Terms of Use immediately after your attempted or effective notification at the e-mail address provided to eMasters.

As described in the Website’s Rules of Conduct, eMasters is committed to take all reasonable measures to prevent anything that may give a User an unjust advantage over another one. We are also committed to guarantee that eMasters’ environment is an enjoyable place to work and play in. We reserve the right to take immediate action if we believe you are a User who is not complying with the Terms of Use.

As mentioned below, if you violate eMasters’ Rules of Conduct, we may suspend or revoke your account, its funds, nullify your score, change your comments, use the account’s funds to reimburse the Users whom you have cheated and/or those who initiated legal action against you. eMasters may cooperate with legal authorities’ and third parties’ investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil error.

eMasters reserves the right, at its own exclusive discretion, to carry out one or all of the steps described above if it reasonably determines that: (i) you violated any of terms of these Terms of Use; (ii) you participated in any attempt to defraud eMasters or the Website through the use of Credit Cards or other payment methods, independently of the result; (iii) you did not honor legitimate charges or payment requests, or you “charged back” or denied any of the purchases or deposits you made in your account; (iv) you are participating in any attempt to deceive another User through collusion or other techniques, independently of the result; or (v) you became insolvent or subject to similar proceedings in any part of the world. Regarding violations to the Terms of Use (including Rules of Conduct) that eMasters considers, at its own discretion, to be not intentional or less serious in nature, the initial offenders may receive an initial warning and may have their account suspended at eMasters’ discretion. Repeat offenders are considered to have intentionally violated the Terms of Use.

  1. No Implied Waiver

eMasters’ failure in applying, at any moment, any of the Terms of Use’s provisions, or failure in requiring, at any moment, the fulfillment of any of the Terms of Use’s provisions, shall in no way be interpreted as a present or future waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect eMasters’ right to apply each one of these provisions thereafter. eMasters’ express waiver of any provision, condition or requirement of these Terms of Use does not constitute as a waiver of any future obligation to fulfill such provision, condition or requirement.
