You warrant that the personal details you provide to us on opening your Account are accurate, complete and correct. If you do not provide us with accurate details then your Account may be suspended and all purchases (and any resulting winnings) may be voided. Please inform us as soon as possible if any of your personal details change.

Our Privacy Policy governs how we process the personal data we collect about you.

It is strictly forbidden to have more than one Account. If we identify two or more accounts are held by the same person, then the Account most recently registered will be closed. We reserve the right to withhold any winnings that have been obtained through any duplicate Account(s).

ACCOUNT SECURITY

The username, associated email and password used to create your account must be kept confidential by you. We reserve the right to regard as valid all purchases registered to or placed from your Account

We will not be liable to you for any loss that you may incur as a result of an unauthorised person accessing your Account, whether fraudulent or otherwise.

PAYMENTS

In order to enter our Trivia Games, you will need to pay an entry fee as set out in the Game Rules.  You can purchase Trivia Games entries using any of our supported payment methods that are registered to your name and address.  Payments must be made in GBP.

If you use a payment method where you are not the Account holder then we may void your purchases and any winnings arising from your stake, pending the satisfactory completion of all relevant checks.

YamYam uses third-party electronic payment processors to process all financial transactions and you hereby consent to our third-party electronic payment processors handling your transactions.

You agree not to charge-back, reverse or otherwise cancel any transactions used to pay entry fees from your account. If you attempt to chargeback any such funds, you will be in breach of these Terms and you will be eliminated from Trivia Games. We reserve the right to terminate your Account in these circumstances.

You are responsible for any taxation on winnings which may apply to your activity on our Service.

If our regulatory obligations require us to perform any further due diligence checks on you based on your payment activity, you agree to cooperate with any due diligence requests by providing requested information promptly.

If we suspect that multiple entry fees paid across separate Accounts have in fact been paid by the same individual (or syndicate of individuals), then we reserve the right to make all entry fees void across all affected Accounts and withhold the payment of any winnings pending the outcome of our investigation into the matter.

CANCELLATION AND REFUNDS

All sales are final.  Purchases of digital entries to our Trivia games are not refundable, not transferable, and can not be cancelled.  Furthermore,  all entries must be redeemed during the time the competition is active.  Any entries not played once the competition has ended will be forfeited and are not able to be refunded in full or in part.

PRIZES

Prize money will be paid out to the game winner(s) as set out in the Game Rules.  Prize money will be paid to the winner(s) via direct bank transfer.

Neither you nor we shall be in breach of this agreement or liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of our respective obligations under this agreement if such delay or failure result from events, circumstances or causes beyond either of our reasonable control. This includes pandemics and epidemics. In such circumstances the time for performance shall be extended by a period equivalent to the period during which performance of the obligation has been delayed or failed to be performed. If the period of delay or non-performance continues for six months, the party not affected may terminate this agreement by giving 30 days’ written notice to the affected party.Government policy will dictate delivery or delay of the prize and the organiser is not liable for any such delay .

ERRORS

We make every effort to ensure that no errors are made in the administration of the Service. However, human and/or system errors may occasionally occur. Errors may include where we make incorrect payments to game winner(s) or where we continue to accept game entry fees after the relevant Trivia Games have finished.

Where an error occurs, we will take appropriate action, which may include contacting you, (where time allows) and providing you with an option to cancel your entry or voiding entry fees.

As soon as you suspect or become aware of an error you must immediately cease all activity on the Service and inform us as soon as reasonably practicable of any such error or suspected error.

We reserve the right to take whatever steps necessary to correct the proper operation of the quiz including,  but not limited to, replacing questions, removing player tickets from the draw,  and redrawing tickets.   Whatever decisions are made to make corrections are final and no correspondence will entered into. 

SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION OF ACCOUNTS

It is illegal for anyone under 18 to use the Service. If we discover that you are under 18 at any time then all entry fees received from your Account will be made void and your Account will be terminated. Your purchases will be refunded to you but you will not be entitled to any winnings.

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account at any time should you breach these Terms or the Game Rules.

If we suspect that you have cheated, acted fraudulently or where there is a reasonable suspicion around the integrity of your behaviour, we may suspend your Account and withhold any winnings pending the outcome of our investigation.

If no entry fees have been placed from your Account for a period of 6 months, we will consider your account an “inactive account”. We will contact you to check if you wish to keep your Account open.
