Anti-Money Laundering Policy

Examples of a suspicious transaction include but are not limited to: use of funds suspected to be derived from illegal activities; any suspected intention to conceal or disguise funds derived from illegal activities; or suspicion that the involvement of our Services is in any manner intended to facilitate criminal activity.

Dover, Delaware, 19901, United States>. We will use our best efforts to respond to such complaints within ten (10) business days.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS GOVERNING CREDIT CARD USE

  1. The Company will charge your credit card using the descriptor "Verdict MMA" and a contact phone number, which will appear on your credit card statement.
  2. All credit card transactions are charged in U.S. dollars.
  3. To prevent credit card fraud, we may charge your card an amount less than the actual value of your deposit with us. In which case we will require you to confirm with us the amount actually charged to your credit card so that we can verify that you are the authorized owner of the charged credit card. In order for us to complete our verification procedure, you will require access to your credit card statement and will need to confirm with us that you are the authorized owner of the charged credit card. For example: if you submit a $100 deposit, we may actually charge the credit card $99.86, but deposit $100 to your Account. We will then ask you to confirm with us the amount that was actually charged to your credit card as shown on your credit statement, being $99.86. If you fail to provide us with the correct amount charged to your credit card, then we may suspend your account until such time as we are satisfied that you are the authorized owner of the charged credit card.
  4. Some credit card deposits may not be charged to your card immediately. As a fraud protection measure, in certain circumstances we will only pre-authorize a charge to your card and then the settle the transaction when we are satisfied that it is a legitimate charge. Many banks also have processing delays, especially if a charge is submitted on a weekend. It is not unusual for the credit charge to appear on your credit card statement up to 10 days from the date you charge your credit card to make a deposit into your Account.
  5. You will receive a transaction receipt via email for every credit card deposit made through the Distribution Channels. Please keep a copy of these transaction receipts for your records.
  6. We use various billing companies and merchant accounts to process credit card transactions. Some of these companies are listed below for player reference.
  • PayPal

  • PaySafe

  • Skrill

    None of the above merchants shall be responsible in any way if you are not satisfied with the Services.

  1. Making a deposit into your Account will not obligate you to make a purchase or play any Tournaments. You may request a cash-out at any time by sending us an email to <[email protected]>. If possible, we will cancel the credit card transaction or directly refund the charged credit card, but in some cases, we may not be able to do this due to credit card processing regulations. If we cannot cancel a transaction or refund your deposit directly to your credit card depending on the region you are located in, subject to Section 39, we will refund you by depositing funds directly into a bank account selected by you, or via Nuvei (together, the “Alternative Refund Options”). We may require additional verification from you if we cannot refund your deposit directly to your credit card.
  2. If, and only if, the Alternative Refund Options are unavailable to us for any reason, we will make refunds in accordance with Section 38 using another available alternative method of payment, provided such other alternative method complies with all applicable laws and regulations.
  3. Should you have any queries related to a credit card transaction through the Distribution Channels, please contact us.
  4. If you fraudulently dispute a transaction with the Company, we will take action against you pursuant to Section 28, and we will ascertain your whereabouts and commence legal action against you to recover all damages and costs (including our legal fees) incurred by us as result of your fraud. Please be advised that it is unlawful to dispute valid credit transactions.

Analytics Services

We use Firebase Google Analytics, which is a mobile app analytics service offered by Google. We also use Mixpanel, which is a product analytics service offered by Mixpanel, Inc. We use Firebase Google Analytics and Mixpanel to allow tracking technologies and remarketing services on the App through the use of first party cookies and third-party cookies, to, among other things, analyze and track users’ use of the App, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand online activity.

How We Protect Personal Information

The security of your Personal Information is important to us.

Personal Information may only be accessed by persons within our organization who require such access to provide you with the services indicated above. All personal information is stored in a password secured database inside a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

While we endeavour to keep your Personal Information safe, our collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information is not without risks. For example, our security safeguards may be compromised by viruses, hacking attempts, or physical break-ins. Consequently, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information. If your Personal Information was wrongfully accessed, there is a risk that you may suffer a harm, such as identity or credit card theft or financial loss.

Please be careful whenever sending Personal Information to us via email. Email is generally not a secure means of transferring information. We therefore cannot guarantee that this information will not be lost or used in a fraudulent manner and we encourage the use of email encryption or other encrypted services to communicate with us.

Please also be careful to keep your email password secure. In order to help keep your email password secure, we encourage you to never give out your email password, and to enable multi-factor authentication.

Processing and Transfer of Information

We may need to transfer your Personal Information to our subsidiaries and affiliates, as well as to our service providers, for processing. This processing supports our business. For example, we may transfer your Personal Information to our cloud hosting provider for storage and retention purposes. We ensure that these recipients of your Personal Information are contractually obligated to keep your Personal Information confidential, to use it only for the purposes for which we transfer it to them, and to process the Personal Information with standards at least as stringent as those set out in this policy.

Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we do business or our service providers do business. We may transfer your Personal Information to countries other than your own country, including to the United States. These countries may have data protection rules that are different from your country. When transferring data across borders, we take measures to comply with applicable data protection laws related to such transfer. Officials (such as law enforcement or security authorities) in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Information. By using any of our Services, or by sending us any Personal Information, you consent to such transfers.

We will endeavour to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Information will take place to a third party organization unless such organization is obligated to maintain adequate security safeguards over your Personal Information.

Third Party Collection of Information

The Services may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins, services, social networks, or applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow the third party to collect or share data about you. If you follow a link to a third-party website or engage a third-party plugin, please note that these third parties have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. We do not control these third-party websites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.
