All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into the RMP.
In order to use the Content or Services, you must be eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of registration. By agreeing to these TOS, you represent and warrant that you are over the age of 18 and you will not allow anyone under the age of 18 to use your account for any purpose.
3. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE; LICENSE.
RMP provides users with a customizable hosting service for “entertainment-only” games, involving multiple sports played worldwide (the “Services”). YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICES FOR GAMBLING, WAGERING, POOLS, OR ANY ILLEGAL PURPOSE. IF YOU DISCOVER THAT ANY PARTY IS USING THE SERVICES OR RMP WEBSITE FOR ANY SUCH PURPOSE, PLEASE NOTIFY RMP IMMEDIATELY AT INFO@RUNMYPOOLS.COM
. FOR MORE INFORMATION, SEE SECTION 4, BELOW.
The content, information, data, designs, code, and materials associated with the Services ("Content") are protected by intellectual property and other laws. You must comply with all such laws and applicable copyright, trademark or other legal notices or restrictions. RMP owns the Content, the Services, and the results and proceeds of the Services, and nothing herein shall be construed as transferring any ownership in and to the Content or Services from RMP to any party, including you. Subject to these TOS, RMP grants you a limited, non-transferable license to access and use the Services and Content only for your own personal, non-commercial use and only for an Acceptable Use (as defined below). RMP reserves all other rights to the Services and Content, and you may not otherwise copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, display, perform, or create derivative works of the Services or Content without RMP’s permission. You also may not transfer or sublicense this limited right to use the Services or resell the Services. RMP may provide game scores and other information pertaining to sports or related events of interest. All of this information is supplied for entertainment purposes only and should be considered to be unofficial. While RMP will use reasonable efforts to include accurate and timely information, RMP does not warrant or make any representations of any kind with respect to the information provided to you. RMP shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the website, the Services, or the Content, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omission in that information.
RMP will make every reasonable effort to provide access on demand to all users. We cannot, however, guarantee perfect access at all times. Such occurrences as extremely high website traffic, power outages, natural disasters, changes in law, strikes, etc. may from time to time prevent access to RMP from all or part of the internet. RMP will make every commercially reasonable effort to restore access as soon as possible in the event its own services are disrupted. RMP is not responsible for any consequences resulting from disruptions in service, and disclaims any liability related thereto or arising therefrom.
RMP will make a reasonable effort to compose software and programs that are compatible with the browsers and operating systems now generally in use on the internet, and a reasonable effort to ensure these programs are free of defects. RMP is not responsible for any consequences resulting from incompatibility between its software and programs and those of any users, and disclaims any liability related thereto or arising therefrom. You may only use the Services and Content for the purpose of participating in non-gambling, non-wagering entertainment-only games and activities (the “Acceptable Use”). Any other use is strictly prohibited (each such use, a “Prohibited Use”).

4. ENTERTAINMENT AND MARKETING ONLY
RMP’s Content and Services are strictly for entertainment or marketing purposes only and may not be used in connection with any form of gambling or wagering or the promotion of gambling or wagering. The discussion of gambling or wagering in any RMP chat rooms or on RMP message boards is also strictly prohibited. If you know (or have reason to suspect) that the Content or Services are being used for purposes of gambling or any other unlawful activity, you must notify RMP immediately via email@example.com
. RMP may pursue legal remedies against such persons.
5. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
You represent, warrant and covenant that you: (a) will only use the RMP website, Content and Services for the Acceptable Use; (b) will not upload, post, transmit, distribute or otherwise publish through the RMP website, Content, and Services any materials, or take any action, that constitutes a Prohibited Use; (c) are 18 years old or older, and will not allow any person under that age to use the RMP website, Content and Services; and (d) will comply with these TOS in connection with your use of the RMP website, Content and Services.
6. RESERVATION OF RIGHTS
RMP expressly reserves, in its sole discretion, the right to immediately modify, suspend or terminate your account and refuse current or future use of any Services or access to Content for any reason. In the event that such termination is without cause, RMP will refund your administration fee for the season for which you entered, if any. IN THE EVENT OF TERMINATION BY RMP OF YOUR ACCOUNT AND RIGHTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT CAUSE, YOU AGREE THAT THE REFUND OF YOUR ADMINISTRATION FEE WILL BE THE TOTAL DAMAGES OWED TO YOU FOR SUCH TERMINATION. In the event that such termination is due to your breach of these TOS or wrongdoing by you, RMP may immediately terminate your account without notice, and such termination does prejudice RMP’s right to pursue damages against you for such breach. RMP has the right to modify or discontinue the Services, including terminating any games you have organized or are participating in, temporarily or permanently, in whole or in part for any reason, with or without notice to you. You agree that RMP will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modifications or discontinuance of the Services or Content, including the termination of any games you organized or are participating in.
