The CashPlayers platform offers you the opportunity to compete against other players in a sporting environment, to advance in leagues and to play for prize money. Our users have the opportunity to play against other athletes in singles, team matches or tournaments and win prize money.
The following general terms and conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Generation Gaming GmbH apply to all use of the website (e.g. games, tournaments, features, e-mails, forum entries, chat messages and for UGC "User Generated Content").
In order to participate in the events a CashPlayers account must be opened.

1. The CashPlayers account

(a) Creation

You need a CashPlayers account to access and use the services of CashPlayers.

The CashPlayers account is your central administration area.

  • You are at least 18 years of age or the legal age of majority in your country of residence.

If, for example, when registering, participating in competitions or making a withdrawal, you have any doubts as to the accuracy of your details or suspect that your account has been hacked, GENERATION GAMING GMBH may request that your identity be verified. This is done in a video conference where you show your identity card live to an employee of Generation Gaming and the employee compares it with the information you provided.

(d) Importance of the CashPlayers account

The CashPlayers account allows you to register any software for which you have a license and with which you wish to compete as an e-athlete.

The participating players agree to the publication of the games. Only the pseudonyms will be displayed. Real names will not be published. Sports best performances will be known to a broad audience as well as the use of cheats and unfair behavior. The right of a player to use the corresponding platforms remains unaffected.

8. Monitoring

CashPlayers organizes competitions. Especially on the internet there are many players who don't apply my rules to them, or they would have to compensate for a lack of skill with cheats.

For this reason EVERY PLAY is recorded.

Human referees supervise the rules-compliant course of the competitions. The referees use these records to investigate allegations of fraud. The referees thus have the possibility to check cheat allegations and other misconduct, e.g. due to the live reporting function within the competitions.

CashPlayers uses the anti-cheat technologies of the individual matches, the live reports of the participating players and a referee system to identify and punish fraud, unfair competitive advantages and violations of the rules of conduct.

If the referees are alerted and there is an increased likelihood of an offence, the game round is reviewed. Only in the case of unfair competition will the payment of the prize money be stopped until it has been checked by a referee. If hacking or cheating is detected in a game round, the round will be cancelled and users will receive their full bet back. We will take action against the user who is responsible for the abuse and will terminate the contractual relationship according to point 8 or block the user account.

The decisions of the referees are binding for all participants.

9. Termination and other sanctions

Generation Gaming may terminate your access to and use of the CashPlayers Service or your CashPlayers Account if we determine that you have violated this Agreement or otherwise used the CashPlayers Services in connection with your CashPlayers Account unlawfully, improperly or fraudulently. If possible, we will notify you of the termination. The termination of your CashPlayers account may result in the loss of your username and persona. Generation Gaming reserves the right to take criminal and/or civil action against fraudsters/theaters for violations.
In the event of termination of your CashPlayers account, you will not have access to your CashPlayers account or any rights and will be barred from re-entering or re-using CashPlayers services. Upon termination, your license will also terminate.
In the event of serious violations, we are entitled to take these measures, even without prior warning. Examples of serious violations include (but are not limited to): using software that provides a cheating advantage, encouraging, supporting or operating hacker attacks without the consent of us to sell CashPlayers accounts or privileges (including virtual currencies and items), extreme harassment, or threatening illegal activity. Where possible, we will notify you of any action taken in violation of these rules or this Agreement.

Any existing balance will be refunded.

In lieu of termination, and prior to any termination, we may issue a warning to you, withdraw or revoke any CashPlayers account or device level privileges, remove or delete any content that violates this Agreement, or block your device or system from accessing our Service.

If CashPlayers takes any of the actions described in this section, you will not have access to your CashPoints balance. To receive a cash out of your CashPoints balance, please contact our support team at support@CashPlayers.de

You have the right to demonstrate and prove that no cheat has been used. If the referees have misjudged you, Generation Gaming will correct this and take back any measures imposed.
Generation Gaming may terminate the contract at any time with thirty days notice to the user.

11. Liability of generation gaming

With the free service, Generation Gaming is liable only for intent and gross negligence.
For paid services of CashPlayers, Generation Gaming's liability is limited to intent and gross negligence except in cases of injury to life, limb or health. In such cases, Generation Gaming's liability is unlimited. In cases of slight negligence, however, Generation Gaming shall only be liable for culpable breach of material contractual obligations.
Liability in the event of a breach of such an essential contractual obligation is limited to the typical damage that was foreseeable for Generation Gaming due to the circumstances at the time this contract was concluded.

Generation Gaming is not liable for network disruptions for which CashPlayers is not responsible or for system and program problems at the user's premises.

In accordance with the above provisions, Generation Gaming shall only be liable for loss of data if such loss of data could not have been avoided by appropriate security measures on the part of the user.

In such cases, the competition round or tournament will be cancelled and the Athletes will be refunded their full entry fee.

14. Payment processing

(a) Currency basis

Payments are made with the euro as the currency.

(b) Payments and receipts within the monetary union

Depending on the chosen payment method, payments for recharging CashPlayers credits are processed either directly by Generation Gaming GmbH or on behalf of Generation Gaming GmbH. In any case, the credit will be provided by Generation Gaming GmbH. The currency named "CashPoints" in the CashPlayers account takes the Euro as reference value.

(c) Payments to non-EU countries / outside the monetary union

In countries with a currency other than the Euro (e.g. Switzerland, Great Britain, Sweden) the payment may therefore be subject to currency fluctuations. At a later date, a lower or higher value in local currency can be paid out for the same number of CashPoints. To ensure that your payout is free of charge, you must accept the currency "Euro" in your payout reference account. If you do not want to or cannot do this, but still want to withdraw your funds, you must contact our support "support@CashPlayers.de". However, in this case you may be required to pay transaction and processing fees.

(d) Reference account

The protection of your credit balance against unauthorised access by third parties, for example through theft of your access data, has top priority for us.

For this reason, we store your chosen means of payment as a so-called reference account. Payments will only be made to the reference account.

A change of the reference account is possible at any time. For this purpose an e-mail with a change link will be sent to the stored e-mail address.

A payout of your credit is possible at any time.

Generation Gaming accepts no liability for the delay of a credit note due to the means of payment chosen by you. This is the case, for example, if credit notes are only issued on bank working days due to the conditions of your bank.

(f) Payment authorization

If you provide payment information to CashPlayers or a Generation Gaming payment processor, you thereby represent to Generation Gaming that you are the authorized owner and user of the associated account with the payment in question. At the same time, they authorise Generation Gaming to process their payment through the selected payment processor for the funds owed by them.

If you fail to comply with this obligation, Generation Gaming will be entitled to block access to your account and terminate it.
