For each Game, a Player will be presented with 3 options: Practice; Challenge a friend or group of friends; or, if available, Tournament. All Games, including practices or tournaments, will be conducted pursuant to the specific rules that we provide for each Game on the Application and the Terms in effect at the time the Game or Tournament was initiated. Players agree to adhere to all such rules and guidelines, including cancellation deadlines, in order to avoid sanctions including but not limited to forfeiture of Game entry fees and/or winnings. If You challenge another Player or enter a Tournament, you have until 24 hours from the commencement of your challenge or Tournament to cancel your participation. Failure to cancel within such time frame or Your failure to participate will result in forfeiture of any credit.
4.2 Tournament. Any Tournament conducted by us on the Application will be governed by the Terms in effect at the time the Tournament was initiated. If a Tournament ends prematurely because of a bug or network failure/dropout, the Tournament will be forfeited. If a Tournament ends prematurely as a result of a Player disconnecting prematurely, that Player will be declared to have lost. If a Tournament ends prematurely due to an error on the game developer’s part (a bug, for example), the money will be refunded to your Account pending an investigation. If a Multiplayer Tournament ends in a tie, the Players will play in another Tournament(s) until such time as there is a definitive winner. Duelit reserves the right to close Your account and confiscate any existing funds if evidence of abuse/fraud is found.
5. CREDITS AND PAYMENTS
5.1. Purchasing Credits. Players will purchase credits to participate in the Games or Tournament via the Application.

5.2. Withdrawals. Once You have played at least three (3) times as a paying customer, You may request a withdrawal of funds from Your available Account balance at any time. In connection with Your requested withdrawal, You will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name and billing address to Duelit’s third party payment processor, which is currently “Paypal.” Funds will be deposited into your PayPal account and we may assess a processing fee of up to U.S. $1.00 for any withdrawal of less than U.S. $50.00 and fees of 2% of the amount withdrawn for withdrawals of $10 or greater.
Processing of requested funds will be made on Friday each week, and must be requested by You at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the weekly payout to allow time for processing; provided, however, that we may freeze Your Account and/or delay a request for withdrawal of funds pending completion of any investigation of reported or suspected abuse, verification of eligibility, or to comply with Applicable Laws. We are not liable for any loss caused by any unauthorized use of Your credit card or other method of payment by a third party (such as PayPal) in connection with the Services.

To the maximum extent permitted under Applicable Law, You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all disputes in court before a judge or jury.
This Section applies to any Dispute except for Disputes relating to the enforcement or validity of our intellectual property rights. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, action, or other controversy between You and us concerning these Terms, the Services or any product, service or information we make available to You, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law. In the event of a Dispute, You or we must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to Play & Earn, PO BOX 398065, Miami Beach, FL 33239. We will send any Notice of Dispute to You by U.S. Mail to Your address if we have it, or otherwise to Your email address. You and we will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, either You or we may commence arbitration.
15.2. Binding Arbitration. If You and we do not resolve any Dispute by informal negotiation any other effort to resolve the Dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration in English only in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. For purposes of such arbitration, these Terms shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, USA (but not including any of its conflict of law rules which would direct or refer to the laws of another jurisdiction). All Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.
15.3. Class Action Waiver. To the maximum extent permitted under Applicable Law, any proceedings to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither You nor we will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. If this waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a Dispute, then it won’t apply to those parts. Instead, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
15.4. Arbitration Procedure. If You are located within the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom or the European Union, or any of their territories, then any arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. You and we each agree to commence arbitration only in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the AAA rules. In a Dispute involving U.S. $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. If You are located in a country other than listed above, then arbitration will be conducted by the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) pursuant to UNCITRAL rules, and the arbitration shall be conducted in English only in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and the English version of these Terms (and not any translation) shall control, and both parties hereby agree to accord this arbitration agreement the broadest scope admissible under Applicable Laws, and that it shall be interpreted in a non-restrictive manner.
15.5. Time Limitation. To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, any claim or Dispute under these Terms must be filed within one year from the date of the cause of action. If a claim or dispute isn’t filed within one year, it is permanently barred.
15.6. Equitable Relief. You agree that we would be irreparably damaged if these Terms were not specifically enforced. Therefore, in addition to any other remedy we may have at law, and notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate Disputes, we are entitled without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to seek appropriate equitable remedies with respect to Your violation of these Terms in any court of competent jurisdiction.
