20Skaters Hockey Inc. ("20Skaters") provides a web-based service that facilitates the organizing of pick-up hockey games by helping game organizers connect with interested players (the "Service"). The Service is offered via the 20Skaters website located at www.20Skaters.com (the "Site"). You may register for and use the Site and the Service provided that you accept unconditionally all of the terms and conditions contained herein (the "Agreement") as well as any revisions to such terms and conditions as may be published on this webpage from time to time by 20Skaters ("20Skaters").
This Agreement is subject to revision by 20Skaters in its sole discretion at any time, with or without notice to you. You should check this webpage from time to time to keep informed of any changes. Your continued use of the Site or the Service subsequent to the posting of any revisions hereto shall constitute your acceptance of the Agreement as revised. Please refer periodically to the date affixed hereto to determine when this Agreement was last revised.
In this Agreement:
"Game" (also "Games") means any hockey game arranged by an Organizer;
"Organizer" (also "Organizers") means a User who arranges a hockey game using the Service;
"Player" (also "Players") means any User who is invited or assigned to a Game;
"User" (also "Users") means any individual registered with the Service.
You must be at least 18 years of age (or the age of majority in your jurisdiction, if that is greater than 18 years of age) to register for the Service.
As an Organizer you understand and agree that each Player that you add to your list of Players for whom you add an email address must be a person:
You understand that 20Skaters is unable to guarantee the accuracy of information provided to 20Skaters by Users, and that 20Skaters is unable to confirm the true identity of any Player or any other User. As an Organizer it is your responsibility to verify the identity of any Player assigned to any Game of which you are the Organizer. 20Skaters makes no representations, warranties or conditions, whether express, implied or collateral, regarding the skill level or appropriateness of any Player assigned to any Game of any Organizer and that you, as an Organizer, understand and agree that you assume all risks associated with your interaction, whether online or offline, with any Player including any Player or Players assigned by 20Skaters to any Game or Games of which you are the Organizer. You understand and agree that 20Skaters shall not be responsible for any claims that arise as a result of your use of the Service including, but not limited to, claims that arise as a result of the actions or conduct of any Player including any Player or Players assigned by 20Skaters to any Game or Games of which you are the Organizer.
While 20Skaters does what it reasonably can to ensure that disreputable Players are kept out of the game, 20Skaters cannot and does not guarantee that such Players will not be assigned to any Games. You understand and agree that 20Skaters is not responsible for ensuring that Players adhere to the Conduct Rules for Players.
You understand and agree that you are required to have a minimum of $10 million in liability insurance coverage for each of your Games.
While 20Skaters does what it reasonably can to ensure that you will have a full roster for each of your Games, 20Skaters cannot and does not guarantee that you will have a full roster for your Games or that Players who have been assigned to a Game will in fact participate in such Game. For this reason 20Skaters cannot and does not guarantee that you will save money by using the Service.
20Skaters makes no representations, warranties or conditions, whether express, implied or collateral, regarding the skill level or compatibility of the other Players in any Game that you have opted to join or to which you have been invited or assigned or that any such Game will actually take place and you understand and agree that you assume all risks associated with your participation in any Game and for your interaction, whether online or offline, with any Player or Organizer.
20Skaters makes no representations, warranties or conditions, whether express, implied or collateral, as to the safety of any Game, that Games will be conducted in a safe and responsible manner, that Games will be officiated, that Games will be held in a safe and suitable venue, or that the Organizer of any Game, or the Owner/Operator of the facility at which any Game is played, will have a valid insurance policy in place covering the Game and its Players.
You acknowledge that there is an inherent risk of injury when playing the game of hockey and you understand and agree that 20Skaters shall not be responsible for any harm suffered by you or anyone else that results from your use of the Service or your participation in any Game including, but not limited to, harms that are the result of the actions or conduct of any Player or Organizer or your involvement in any Game including any Game to which you were assigned by 20Skaters.
You must refrain from doing any of the following while accessing the Service, while interacting, whether online or offline, with any other User, or while participating in any Game:
While 20Skaters does what it reasonably can to exclude disreputable players from using the Service, 20Skaters cannot and does not make any guarantee that Games will be free of disreputable Players including Players previously identified as such and Players whose prior registration with the Site had been terminated on account of their having been identified as such a Player
For the purposes of helping to ensure that disreputable individuals are excluded from the Service and from participating in any Games 20Skaters may create and maintain a record of your involvement in any hockey games which may include a record of any disciplinary action taken against you as a participant in such games or any allegations or complaints made against you in connection with your participation in such games. 20Skaters reserves the right to share any information contained in any such record as well as certain personal information of yours with 3rd parties including, but not limited to, the Canadian Adult Recreational Hockey Association. Other than what personal information of yours that may be contained in any such record kept in respect of you, you understand and agree that the contents of any such record is the property of 20Skaters and that you have no rights whatsoever in respect to any such record.
You understand and accept that the Organizer of a Game may refuse to allow you to participate in such Game or may eject you from such Game and may do so for any reason or no reason at all, and that neither such Organizer nor 20Skaters shall have any obligation to you in respect of any payments made or costs incurred by you in respect of such Game.
20Skaters acts as a conduit through which payments from Players to Organizers may be made. However, 20Skaters plays no part in and accepts no responsibility for the resolution of disputes between Players and Organizers or among Users generally. You understand and agree that disputes that arise between Players and Organizers or between Users generally are a private matter between the Player and the Organizer in question and that 20Skaters bears no responsibility for the resolution of such disputes.
You understand and agree that it is the right of the Organizer of a Game to refuse to admit any Player to such Game or to eject any Player from a Game, even after payment for such Game has been accepted by such Organizer, and where such refusal occurs 20Skaters shall not be responsible for any refunding of payment or any such reconciliation of payments.
