These are the basic rules and legal stuff that go with using the site. It isn’t supposed to be complicated stuff so if you have any questions about it or you are unsure of something then please contact us with your enquiry.
AGREEMENT BETWEEN USER AND POKERUS.COM
The PokerUS.com (PokerUS) website is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions and notices contained herein. Your use of the PokerUS website constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions and notices.
PokerUS reserves the right to change the terms, conditions and notices under which the PokerUS website is offered at any time without notice. These updates will take effect as soon as they are posted here. It is your responsibility to check back regularly for any changes. Please note that the rates of reward for which you qualify are determined by the Poker Rooms with whom we work. If for any reason the Poker Room decides to reduce this rate at a later date for any reason, it is not a decision that we can affect. Providing we are informed of such change as well, we will endeavour to give you notice as soon as we can. It is your responsibility when signing up to a poker room to make sure that you adhere to the terms and conditions of that room, and are not contravening any rules/laws that the poker room or the territory/state/country (in which you are resident) have governing an account such as age or legality to wager on line. If for whatever reason a poker room offering rewards defaults on its agreement to pay rewards to you, PokerUS shall not be liable for any outstanding rewards monies (including any outstanding monies or prizes for previous or current promotions, including but not limited to rake races, chases and cash/prize freerolls) owed to any player by that room.
CHARGEBACKS AND PAYMENTS
All Poker rooms have the right to withhold rewards payments in the event they believe that there is reason to believe that a player is using their poker account for fraudulent purposes. In this event they can refuse to release commission to PokerUS. Whilst these occurrences are few and far between, they are nonetheless possible and such player may be required by the room to pay such amounts withheld. PokerUS depends on reports from the poker rooms to display the amount of reward generated and earned by players. The gross numbers we receive from the poker rooms at the month end are subject to change at any time on account of extra/missing data, fraud and chargebacks. Poker software systems such as Poker Tracker and Poker Office do NOT provide accurate data. See FAQs for more information on this. The month end reports that we get from the poker rooms are final and PokerUS are unable to enter into any discussion with any poker room on this issue as this would breach the poker room’s player confidentiality rules. If you feel that the amount of reward you have generated in any given month is wrong, you will need to consult directly with the poker room before talking to PokerUS. In order for a player to receive payments, PokerUS need to access online reports from the Poker Rooms they are affiliated with. These reports in the various forms show some, or a combination, of the following information: Player Name, player email, Player ID Number, reward generated in a given month, overall reward generated. By signing up through PokerUS with any poker room for a rewards program, you are granting us permission to view these reports and are also granting permission for the respective poker room to allow us access to see said reports and the information contained therein.
SPECIFIC POKER ROOM INFORMATION
All reward payments are calculated upon net points. On occasion this is done once player retention bonuses, any other site give-aways and transaction charges have been deducted by the Poker Rooms. Some rooms do not deduct bonuses. At some rooms negative net points at the end of a month are carried forward by PokerUS to the next month regardless of whether the associated poker room resets negative balances for PokerUS to zero. This is because PokerUS net points for a poker room are calculated as a total of all players belonging to that room. Therefore a net negative player will offset a player with a positive points amount and whilst the positive player qualifies for rewards, PokerUS is not allocated a corresponding commission from the poker room because of the other player’s negative contribution. Therefore negative points must be carried forward to make up for the losses incurred by PokerUS. Players registered to more than one account through PokerUS will have their rewards combined and if possible negative balances will be offset against positive ones and any referral fees or promotional winnings. A player who signs up through a PokerUS poker link will only be entitled to rewards on poker providing the room they have chosen caters for it. Some poker rooms offset a player’s casino play against their points generation. If this is the case casino winnings are offset against poker points/rewards generated and so a player may find that they receive reduced or no points/rewards at all in a given month. PokerUS shall not be liable for any change of rewards program or loyalty scheme by a poker room which results in any loss of income for any player regardless of whether or not the player was adequately informed of said change by either the room or PokerUS. It is always the player’s responsibility to check the precise terms of the loyalty/rewards program with the poker room should they suspect any change in said program.
All Rooms – By signing up through PokerUS you accept that your rewards and other data such as points/hands played will be provided to us by the poker room/casinos with whom we are affiliated. You also accept that we will on occasion, for the purpose of races, freerolls and other leader boards display this data publicly. We will never display or disclose to a third party any other personal data specific to you of your account.
