Terms & Conditions – T140 Players™

Welcome to T140 Events™.

T140 Pty Ltd (T140™) is an Australian based company and is the owner and promoter of the T140 Events™ system (the System). These Terms and Conditions (Terms) govern the provision to you, and your use of, the System in participating in both T140 Events™ and T140 Venue Tournaments™ based on T140 Events™. In addition, the Terms cover any T140 Tournaments™ which you participate in which are organised by T140™ or a Sanctioning Body. See {T140 Tournaments™ Terms}.

The Terms are to be understood by reference to the {T140™ Lexicon}.

When you register as a T140 Player™ with T140™, you agree to these terms.

The System is one of the products provided to you by T140™. If other products are supplied by T140™ to you, their supply will also be governed by these Terms.

These Terms comprise an agreement between you and T140™.

The System

  1. We agree to provide you with access to the System. The System includes all of the T140 Events™ features, applications, systems, technologies, and software that we provide to advance T140™’s vision:

To engage the global cue sports community, revitalise venues through increased player participation and introduce new players to the sport.

  1. The System is made up of the following elements:
    1. Offering T140 Venues™ and T140 Players™ opportunities to connect and compete. We want to strengthen your relationships with T140 Venues™. We have built the System to facilitate this goal. Part of this is highlighting content, features, offers, and accounts you might be interested in, and offering ways for you to experience T140 Events™ and T140 Venues Tournaments™.
    2. Fostering a positive, inclusive, and safe environment. We offer resources to our T140 Venues™ and T140 Players™ to make their experiences positive and inclusive.
    3. Developing and using technologies to serve the growing T140 Community™. A big part of our System is creating and using cutting-edge technologies that help us personalize, protect, and improve the System on an incredibly large scale for the global T140 Community™. As a T140 Player™ you are part of that Community. These technologies give us the ability to apply complex processes across the System. They also help us ensure the functionality and integrity of the System.
    4. Ensuring the System evolves. T140™ is focused on continual improvement of the System with insights, information, and technology to ensure that the System continually evolves to be even better, safer, and more secure.
    5. Ensuring access to the System. To operate our global System, we must store and transfer data across our systems around the world, including outside of your country of residence. The use of this global infrastructure is necessary and essential to provide the System to T140 Players™ and the T140 Venues™.
    6. Research and innovation. We use the information we have obtained to study the System. If we need to collaborate with others on research to make the System better, we will do so in a way which is consistent with our {Privacy Policy}. Our innovations are intended to contribute to the well-being of our T140 Community™.
  2. How the System is funded
    1. The System is available to you without charge by T140™. You only pay for charges which a Venue charges you to enter a T140 Event™.
    2. We will not show you advertisements from businesses or organizations to promote other products to you. We do not use your personal data, such as information about your activities, for any purpose other than our dealings with you in respect of the System.
    3. We do not sell your personal data.
    4. Venues will determine what they charge you to play in a T140 Event™ at their venue.
  3. Our Data Policy.

The System requires collecting and using information and, in particular, the results of T140™ Events. You must agree to the collection and use of this information to use the System. T140™ does not sell or use this limited information for any purpose other than the practical function and promotion of the System. Please review our {Data Policy}.

  1. Your commitments to T140™.

In return for our commitment to provide you with the System, you agree to meet your obligations as set out below.

  1. Who can use the System?

  2. You must not be prohibited from using any aspect of the System under applicable laws.

We do not claim ownership of any content that you post on or through the System including T140™’s Social Media Channels and you are free to share your content with anyone else, wherever you want. However, we need certain legal permissions from you (known as a license) to provide the System. When you share, post, or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights (like photos or videos) on or in connection with the System, you hereby grant to us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works. This license will end when your content is deleted from our systems. You can ask us to delete content individually or all at once.
  2. Permission to use your username, profile pictures and information about you. You give us permission to show your Venue name, profile pictures and information about you without any compensation to you. We will also respect your requests in any feature or promotion of you by T140™.

  1. Our Agreement.
    1. If any aspect of this agreement is unenforceable, the rest will remain in force.
    2. Any amendment or waiver to our agreement must be in writing and signed by T140™. If we fail to enforce any aspect of this agreement, it will not be a waiver of our rights.

  3. Who is responsible if something happens?
    1. The System is provided "as is," and T140™ does not guarantee it will be safe and secure or will work perfectly all the time.

If there is an issue with the System, we cannot know what all the possible impacts might be. You agree that we will not be responsible (liable) for any lost profits, revenues, information, or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive, or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms, even if we know they are possible. This limitation includes when we delete your content, information, or account.
  4. How we will handle disputes.

In all other cases, you agree that the claim must be resolved exclusively under the laws of the State of South Australia, Australia for the purpose of litigating any such claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
    2. In addition, you agree that, in its sole discretion, T140™ may also bring any claim we have against you related to your misuse, interference, or engagement with the System in unauthorized ways, in the country in which you reside that has jurisdiction over our claim.
  5. Unsolicited material.

We welcome feedback or other suggestions from you, but if they are given, we may use them without any restriction and without any obligation to compensate you for them. In addition, we are under no obligation to keep them confidential.

Unless otherwise required by law, we will notify you (for example, through the System or on the {T140.com} website) when we make changes to these Terms. Then, if you continue to use the System after the update has occurred, the updated Terms will bind you. If you do not want to agree to these or any updated Terms, you may delete your account.
