you are not subject to backup withholding tax because: (a) you are exempt from backup withholding, or (b) you have not been notified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that you are subject to backup withholding as a result of a failure to report all interest or dividends, or (c) the IRS has notified you that you are no longer subject to backup withholding;
when entering any contest that awards prizes, you are not an employee or operator of another daily fantasy site that charges entrance fees or offers cash prizes; and
you do not, by virtue of affiliation with another daily fantasy site, have access to the site’s pre-release non-public confidential data about contest-related information.
If BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy determines that you do not meet the eligibility requirements of this section, then you are not authorized to use the Services. BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy makes no representation that participation in paid entry fantasy sports contests is lawful under law of any state, including the Eligible States. BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy may require you to provide proof that you are eligible to participate according to this section prior to receiving a prize. This includes by requesting that you fill out an affidavit of eligibility or other verification information (as discussed in Section 4 below). If BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy otherwise determines that you do not meet the eligibility requirements of this section, in addition to any rights that BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy may have in law or equity, BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy reserves the right to terminate your account, withhold or revoke the awarding of any prizes associated with your account or limit your ability to withdraw. In such a situation, BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant contest in a manner consistent with the prize structure of the contest, to be precisely determined by BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy in its sole discretion. BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy also reserves the right to withhold revoked prizes to use in furtherance of its fraud prevention or anti-money laundering efforts. BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy employees may use the Services for the purpose of testing the user experience, but may not withdraw money or prizes except when playing in a private league.

BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy consultants or promoters of the Services may play in contests without such limitation, but only if (i) their arrangement with BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy does not permit them to have any access to non-public Services data or any other data not made available to all players on the Services and (ii) they do not receive any other advantages in their play on the Services.
Employees or operators of other daily fantasy sites that charge entry fees or offer cash prizes and individuals who, by virtue of affiliation with another daily fantasy site, have access to the site’s pre-release non-public confidential data about contest-related information may not enter any contests in which a real money prize is awarded. If such person enters a BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy contest that awards prizes, BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy will disqualify the entry, will not award a prize, and may report such person’s violation of this provision to the daily fantasy site for which the entrant is employed by, operates or affiliated with. Additionally, BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy may maintain information about the entrant sufficient to assist BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy in blocking the user from entering future BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy contests, unless and until BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy determines, in its sole discretion, that the entrant is no longer an employee or operator of another daily fantasy site or no longer has access to pre-release non-public confidential data about contest-related information by virtue of affiliation with a daily fantasy site.

If such cancellation, termination, modification or suspension occurs, notification may be posted on the BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy website or app.
The failure of BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy to comply with any provision of these Terms due to an act of God, hurricane, war, fire, riot, earthquake, terrorism, act of public enemies, actions of governmental authorities outside of the control of BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy (excepting compliance with applicable codes and regulations) or other force majeure event will not be considered a breach of these Terms.
4.5. Deposits and Withdrawals Generally
By depositing funds or entering paid contests, you agree to provide us with a valid mailing address, date of birth and social security number and any other information we may require in order to run appropriate identity checks and comply with applicable rules and regulations.

While your account is pending verification, you may be able to deposit funds into your account and participate in contests, but you will not be able to withdraw any funds from your account until verification is complete. If we are unable to verify you, we reserve the right to suspend your account and withhold any funds until such time as we have been able to successfully verify you.
We also may conduct checks for Terms compliance, including anti-fraud checks on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing a withdrawal, and we may request additional information before permitting a withdrawal. Subject to such checks, you may close your account and withdraw your deposits and/or winnings at any time and for any reason.
Deposits, and player winnings after contests are finished, are held in a separate, segregated bank account by a subsidiary of Jump Clear, Inc. These funds belong to you, subject to review for evidence of fraud, verification or other prohibited conduct as described above, and BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy may not use them to cover its operating expenses or for other purposes. Your withdrawals will be made from this segregated bank account, and checks issued from that account may bear the name of BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy’s subsidiary.
BetHorseSports.com-Fantasy may limit the amount a user can deposit into his or her account in accordance with state-imposed deposit limits.

Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. By default, the arbitration will take place in person in Denver, Colorado, but if you so choose, the arbitration may be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone, online, or in your state of residence. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided herein, the parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator, as well as to seek non-monetary injunctive or other equitable relief.
EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT EACH PARTY TO A DISPUTE HEREUNDER MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and we agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
