Hedgescape.com ("Hedgescape") welcomes You to its website ("Website"). The following Terms and Conditions shall govern the relationship between Hedgescape and You (also referred to herein as "Member" or "Player"). These Terms and Conditions shall govern all information, documents, communications, files, text, graphics, software, and audio/visual files, including content sent and uploaded by other Members in compliance herein (collectively, the "Service"). Additional terms and conditions of use applicable to specific areas of the Service may also be posted in such areas and, together with these Terms and Conditions, govern Your use of those areas and spell out what You can expect from us and what we expect from You.
The Hedgescape Website is a free mental agility challenge platform that offers its Members the chance to win prizes and acts as a platform for communications in certain countries. Members are able to compete against other Members in Hedgescape Challenges ("Challenges") to win gift cards, physical goods or real money. Information pertaining to the Challenges that are offered, the rules, and further information about Challenge play can be found on the Website.
1. Acceptance of Terms and Conditions.
By using this Website and/or creating an account and becoming a Member, You accept and agree to all terms, conditions and notices contained or referenced on the Website ("Terms and Conditions"). Please read the following Terms and Conditions carefully. If You do not agree to the Terms and Conditions, do not use this Website. By accessing, using, or downloading in any way, without limitation, any Service from this Website, or merely browsing this Website, You agree to and are bound by these Terms and Conditions.
Hedgescape reserves the right to change the Terms and Conditions at any time, without prior notice to You or any other Member or Website visitor. In such an event, Hedgescape will send You an email containing the revised terms and conditions or a notification containing a link to where the revised terms and conditions can be viewed on the Website at least two (2) weeks before they go into effect. Hedgescape may also send notice of the revisions to You using the Hedgescape messaging service. If You do not expressly object to the validity of the new terms and conditions via email within this two (2) week period, then the newly revised Terms and Conditions will be considered agreed upon. If You reject the newly revised Terms and Conditions, then Hedgescape may terminate this license agreement as provided herein.
To be eligible to register and create an authorized Hedgescape account ("Account") and become a Member, You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States, including the District of Columbia, and may not be a firm, business entity or institution. If you are a non-U.S. citizen and live in a different country which allows skill-based games, you may also create an authorized Hedgescape account.
By using this Website and Service, You represent and warrant that You have the right, authority and capacity to enter into this agreement and to abide by all of these Terms and Conditions. Hedgescape reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to refuse service and access to any potential participant. Employees, officers, directors, investors, agents, and representatives of Hedgescape and their parents, affiliates and subsidiaries, and each of their respective immediate family (defined as parents, spouse and children) and any person residing in the same household as such and sponsors and affiliates and advertising and promotion agencies of Hedgescape are NOT eligible to use or create an Account on the Website for personal gain. They may, however, participate in Challenges for testing purposes, but without the intent to achieve any personal gain or profit for Hedgescape.
You must create an Account in order to become a Member and play Challenges on this Website. Hedgescape does not charge a registration fee for You to become a Member for the Basic Membership. Play on certain Challenges or certain features offered may be dependent upon the existence of certain conditions such as the type of Account You have, Your age, proof of payment, number of completed Challenges, or specific Challenge rules.
4. Local Laws, Service Not Available in Some States.
You are subject to the laws of the country, state, city or other legal entity (collectively "Jurisdiction") in which You reside and/or from which You access the Website and the Service. The laws governing sweepstakes, contests, and tournaments with entry fees and/or prizes are set up by each individual state, not by the federal government. Based on these 50 sets of laws, Hedgescape CANNOT offer fee-based Challenges with prizes to residents of the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Vermont. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.
However, anyone may compete in the free weekly Hedgescape Challenges.
5. Your Account.
A. Account Responsibility.
When you create Your Account, You represent that You are at least eighteen (18) years of age and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. You agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. You may modify Your Registration Data by sending an email to support@Hedgescape.com. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Hedgescape has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Hedgescape 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 are responsible for paying all charges (plus applicable taxes) associated with the use of the Service under Your Account, including charges incurred as a Money Player subject to the posted terms and conditions for such play.
B. Secrecy Obligation.
To create an Account, You will need to select a unique username and password ("Identifiers"). Usernames may not be derived either from email addresses or Internet sites, may not infringe upon the rights of third parties, and may not violate any rules of good conduct. For security reasons, passwords must differ from usernames and may be changed whenever You deem necessary. Passwords should not be sequences of consecutive numbers (i.e."2345678") or letters (i.e.: "ABCDEFG"). More specifically, a secure password should contain a combination of numbers, letters and, when possible, special characters. Passwords should be kept secret and periodically changed (every 2 months at the latest). Hedgescape will not give Your password to any third party unless required to do so by law. Hedgescape will never ask You for Your password via telephone or email.
Once You have selected the Identifiers for Your Account, it is Your responsibility to keep these Identifiers secure and confidential. Some or all of these Identifiers are required to access certain areas of the Website. In the event that You are concerned that Your Identifiers are no longer secure and confidential, You should immediately notify Hedgescape by sending an email to support@Hedgescape.com, whereupon new Identifiers may be selected and allocated and any future transactions under the previous Identifiers may be voided, at the sole discretion of Hedgescape. Without limiting the foregoing, any transactions made and accepted on the Website where Your Identifiers have been used and where You have not previously notified Hedgescape as provided herein will be treated as valid and You will be responsible for the same, including any expenses incurred; Hedgescape will not issue any form of compensation.
C. No Transfer.
Only one Account is allowed per person. Multiple Accounts, as well as the setting up and operation of multiple Accounts, are prohibited. Your Account is not transferable. Under no circumstances shall You allow or permit any other person or third party, including without limitation any person under the legal age to participate in a Challenge in Your applicable Jurisdiction, and in no event any person under the age of thirteen (13) years, to use or re-use Your Account or Your Identifiers in such a way that may breach the standards or laws in any Jurisdiction where You are located and/or are a resident, or where such other person is located and/or is a resident. Any person found to have violated this section may be reported to the relevant authorities.
6. Challenge Game Play.
A. Odds of Winning Challenges.
The results of all Challenges offered on the Website depend on the number of the players participating in such Challenges and the skill of the players in such Challenges; precise odds of winning are therefore unavailable.
B. Winners Lists.
Lists of winners will be posted on the Website immediately following each Challenge, except in the case of Challenges with substantial (as determined by Hedgescape in its sole discretion) prizes, where lists may be delayed for up to five (5) business days while verification of the results takes place in order to help prevent potential abuse.
C. Determination of Winners.
The results and winners of each Challenge offered on the Website will be determined by Hedgescape, and such determinations are final. By registering and/or participating in any Challenge, You agree to be bound by these determinations.
D. Fairness of Play.
Hedgescape guarantees that all participants in a particular challenge are given the same starting conditions. This applies to all challenges offered on Hedgescape and means that each participant of a particular challenge is given the same types of questions, puzzles, brainteasers, etc. Because of this, the level of difficulty is identical for all participants. For security concerns, players in Hedgescape's challenges containing multiple participants are given random sets. This prevents participants from taking advantage of the other players by contacting one another about the sets used.
Hedgescape is not liable for any lost winnings or potential winnings, not even in the case of prematurely closed Challenges.
A. Your Right to Cancellation.
You may cancel Your Account within two (2) weeks of Your initial registration by sending an email to support@Hedgescape.com. Your cancellation notice does not need to contain any reason for the cancellation. However, Your notice shall be void if You participate in a Challenge with a monetary entry fee on the Website any time during Your initial two (2) week time period.
B. Your Right to Termination.
You may terminate Your Account at any time. To terminate Your Account, please send an email to support@Hedgescape.com. Any unused credits you have may be used or transferred to a friend.
C. Hedgescape's Right to Termination.
Hedgescape reserves the right to terminate Your Account, limit or prohibit your participation in any Challenge for without any reason. Immediate termination will result for obvious reasons, including, but not limited to, any violation of these Terms and Conditions, improper conduct or abuse by You as set forth in section 13. By registering for an Account, You consent to allow Hedgescape to access Your Account information to, among other things, investigate complaints or other allegations of abuse. Please note that in certain circumstances where Your Account is closed by Hedgescape for a violation of these Terms and Conditions, Your winnings may be voided and not returned to You. In such an event, Hedgescape may use these winnings to defray the costs of administration and enforcement of these Terms and Conditions.

B. Rules for Communication and Anti-Spam Policy.
It is possible for Members to contact each other on the Website for reasons such as challenging each other to Challenges. In doing so, Members are obligated to only send messages that (i) are free of obvious or hidden advertisement, (ii) are neither subjective, intentionally false, derogatory, defamatory, immoral, nor pornographic in nature nor fulfill any other element of offense, (iii) are not damaging to any third parties, (iv) do not contain any viruses or computer programs that could affect the function of external computers, (v) are not surveys or chain letters, (vi) were not written with the intent to expand a certain political, ideological, or religious denomination, and (vii) were not written with the intent to collect, save, or use personal information from users without their explicit consent, especially for promotional purposes.

If You are reported and a claim of "Spam" is validated by Hedgescape against You, You will have Your Account either immediately TERMINATED or SUSPENDED, at the sole discretion of Hedgescape. Additionally, any winnings, if any, may be voided at the sole discretion of Hedgescape. Hedgescape defines "Spam" as (i) electronic mail messages addressed to a recipient with whom the initiator does not have an existing business or personal relationship or is not sent at the request of, or with the express consent of, the recipient, (ii) messages posted to forum and message boards that are off-topic (unrelated to the topic of discussion), cross-posted to unrelated newsgroups, or posted in excessive volume; or (iii) solicitations posted to chat rooms, or to groups or individuals via Internet relay chat, via the Hedgescape internal communication systems or "instant messaging" system.
C. Reporting Abuse or Inappropriate Conduct.
If you wish to report any abuses, inappropriate online conduct or a violation of Hedgescape's Terms and Conditions, please forward all evidence of the same to support@Hedgescape.com. Please refer responsibly!
D. Penalties for Abuse, Inappropriate Online Conduct and Violating Hedgescape's Terms and Conditions.
Hedgescape reserves the right to block, cancel or terminate Member Accounts without notice in cases of abusive behavior or suspicion of abuse, inappropriate online conduct, and/or for a violation of these Terms and Conditions, particularly in those instances detailed in sections 13(A) and 13(B). Upon the receipt of a credible and validated complaint, Hedgescape may elect to immediately suspend or terminate Member's Account. (Suspension serves as a "final" warning and is intended to prevent You from continuing any abusive behavior.) If this occurs, then Challenges or Challenges which have already begun will be aborted by Hedgescape and the results will not be evaluated; the Player in violation must then compensate Hedgescape for any problems arising therefrom. Hedgescape will evaluate each validated abuse incident on a case-by-case basis and impose suspension or termination at its sole discretion, and may void any associated winnings. Hedgescape reserves the right to lift any suspension against You at any time, at its sole discretion. Hedgescape reserves the right to institute civil or criminal proceedings against You and/or report You to the relevant regulatory or law enforcement authorities.
Furthermore, if a Player's Account is blocked or terminated then that Player is obligated to pay a contract penalty to Hedgescape. The contract penalty shall be the average turnover profit that the Player generated per month for the last three months before the contract penalty. If the relationship has existed for less than three months, then the average will be taken from the full duration of contract. Hedgescape reserves the right to withhold funds from the abusive Player's Account in compensation for damages to Hedgescape or third-parties, as well as to pay for this contract penalty.
You acknowledge and agree that You shall not circumvent or attempt to circumvent any of these Terms and Conditions, the Service or any Challenges offered through this Website or otherwise interrupt or attempt to interrupt the operations of the Website (collectively, a "Circumvention Act"). If Hedgescape determines, in its sole discretion, that You have engaged, or attempted to engage, in any Circumvention Act, use automated technology or otherwise unfairly alter Your chances of winning, or to otherwise commit fraud with regard to the Website, then, in such an event, You will forfeit all winnings to which You may otherwise be entitled, and Hedgescape reserves the right to terminate Your Account immediately and institute civil or criminal proceedings against You and/or report You to the relevant regulatory authorities.
If You use this Website, You are responsible for restricting access to Your computer and ensuring that Your computer is free from all types of malicious code, spyware, viruses, Trojans, etc. that may track any data You enter via this Website, including e-mail address, credit card number, and other payment related information.

18. Applicable Law/Jurisdiction.
The failure of Hedgescape to require or enforce strict performance of You of any provision of these Terms and Conditions or to exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of Hedgescape's right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.
The provisions of these Terms and Conditions are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms and Conditions, which shall continue to be in full force and effect.
