- During a self-exclusion agreement, You must not attempt to gamble with us, and we cannot be responsible or liable for any subsequent consequences or losses (however caused) that You may suffer or incur if You continue gambling through additional accounts where You have altered any of Your registration details or You provide misleading, inaccurate or incomplete details or otherwise seek to circumvent the self-exclusion.
- If You choose to reopen Your account once the self-exclusion period has ended, You will be required to contact the customer support team via [email protected]. You will then be given a minimum 24 hour cooling off period before Your account is active. Whilst the 24 hour cooling off period is in place You will be given the option to cancel the reactivation.
- We also wish to draw Your attention to the existence of software preventing an individual computer from accessing gambling websites or services, such as: www.cyberpatrol.com or www.gamblock.com. If You require any further information or assistance regarding our functionality, please contact [email protected].
- Once You have registered with GAMSTOP, You will be prevented from opening a new or existing account with GGPoker. Players that have a remaining real money balance will be granted limited access to their accounts to withdraw only.
- It is Your responsibility to ensure that all information provided to GAMSTOP matches any information provided to GGPoker when setting up Your account. GGPoker will not be liable or responsible for any information provided to GAMSTOP that is inaccurate or inconsistent with the information we hold about You.
- Self-exclusion will only be fully effective at GGPoker if all the information provided to GAMSTOP matches the information provided to us, including keeping these records accurate and up to date. GGPoker accepts no liability or responsibility should we fail to prevent access to Your gaming account or opening subsequent gaming accounts with information that is inaccurate or inconsistent with the information that either GGPoker or GAMSTOP holds about You.
- Self-exclusion will take effect immediately once Your application with GAMSTOP has been processed. This will be reflected on our system immediately and You will no longer have access to Your gaming account. Whilst GAMSTOP makes every effort to action Your self-exclusion instantly, there is no guarantee this will take effect within 24 hours. For this reason, we advise You to contact us to confirm Your self-exclusion with GAMSTOP. When confirming Your Name, Username, Date of Birth and Address, please ensure these are accurate and consistent with the information You have provided to GAMSTOP, as well as information we hold about You also.
- We also strongly advise further that You contact any other Gambling Operators You hold accounts with to confirm Your self-exclusion with GAMSTOP.
- By confirming Your registration with GAMSTOP is successful, we can implement the following measures:
- Subject to T&Cs agreed upon registering with GGPoker regarding the withholding of Your funds, the full balance of Your account will be returned as soon as requested via the current active payment method.
- You will no longer receive marketing material regarding products, promotions or services from GGPoker.
- Once Your self-exclusion period has elapsed, You will be required to contact GAMSTOP to deactivate Your self-exclusion, otherwise, it will continue for an additional 7 years. This action can only be taken by Yourself directly with GAMSTOP. Whilst they will attempt to action re-opening instantly, there is no guarantee this will take effect within 24 hours. All returns from self-exclusion periods are subject to a 24-hour “cooling-off” period. Once deactivated, You will be able to access existing or create new accounts.
- Whilst under self-exclusion, You agree to not attempt to avoid any of the preventative mechanisms or procedures put in place by either GGPoker or GAMSTOP by accessing existing or creating any new accounts. Whilst GAMSTOP is intended to assist You with managing Your gambling, it is not intended to function as a replacement for self-control. We cannot guarantee that it will always result in You being denied access to services or refused when attempting to create new accounts.
- On account of the level of diligence we have employed in restricting Your access to gaming services whilst under self-exclusion, GGPoker accepts no liability or responsibility should You, or a third-party, continue in any way to use our gaming services. In addition, in instances beyond our reasonable control, such as malfunctioning software, or an inability to recognise Your identity immediately under the GAMSTOP jurisdiction, that results in Your ability to access existing or create new accounts, GGPoker again accepts no liability or responsibility.
