Welcome to eTrueSports.com. eTrueSports.com ("eTrueSports") provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at: http://www.etruesports.com/tos.php. In addition, when using particular eTrueSports owned or operated services, you and eTrueSports shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules (including but not limited to our Spam Policy) are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS. eTrueSports may also offer other services that are governed by different Terms of Service
eTrueSports currently provides users with access to a collection of resources, including, various communications tools, forums, and personalized content through its network of properties (the "Service"). You also understand and agree that the Service may include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for eTrueSports to provide the Service. You also understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from eTrueSports, such as service announcements, administrative messages and the eTrueSports Newsletter, and that these communications are considered part of eTrueSports membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new eTrueSports properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that eTrueSports assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
Please be aware that eTrueSports may create certain areas on the Service that contain adult or mature content. You must be at least 18 years of age to access and view such areas.
In consideration of your use of the Service, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (such information being the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or eTrueSports has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, eTrueSports has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).
You will receive a password and account designation upon completing the Service's registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify eTrueSports of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. eTrueSports cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section 5.
You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials ("Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated. This means that you, and not eTrueSports, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service. eTrueSports does not control the Content posted via the Service and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using the Service, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. Under no circumstances will eTrueSports be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service.
You acknowledge that eTrueSports may or may not pre-screen Content, but that eTrueSports and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, eTrueSports and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content created by eTrueSports or submitted to eTrueSports, including without limitation information in eTrueSports Message Boards, and in all other parts of the Service.
You acknowledge, consent and agree that eTrueSports may access, preserve, and disclose your account information and Content if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the TOS; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third-parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; or (e) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of eTrueSports, its users and the public.
You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your Content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
You understand that the Service and software embodied within the Service may include security components that permit digital materials to be protected, and use of these materials is subject to usage rules set by eTrueSports and/or content providers who provide content to the Service. You may not attempt to override or circumvent any of the usage rules embedded into the Service. Any unauthorized reproduction, publication, further distribution or public exhibition of the materials provided on the Service, in whole or in part, is strictly prohibited.
Recognizing the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable Content. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.
eTrueSports does not claim ownership of Content you submit or make available for inclusion on the Service. However, with respect to Content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Service, you grant eTrueSports the following world-wide, royalty free and non-exclusive license(s), as applicable:

You agree to indemnify and hold eTrueSports, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders or other partners, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of Content you submit, post, transmit or make available through the Service, your use of the Service, your connection to the Service, your violation of the TOS, or your violation of any rights of another.
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Service (including your eTrueSports I.D.), use of the Service, or access to the Service.
