the customer’s place of residence;
the customer’s valid e-mail address and contact number (phone / mobile);
personal and confidential Username. The Username must be unique and clearly identifiable. Offensive or indecent names are not allowed. Further prohibited are usernames that contain or allude to an Internet link or account names, which allude to certain rights of the User (ex. the term “administrator” is reserved for Scout). We reserve the right to suspend accounts with an unacceptable Username. Accounts can be reactivated as soon as suitable and acceptable alternative has been chosen;
password. The User is advised to choose a strong and non-predictable password for security and is responsible for ensuring that this password is kept secret;
During the registration process, a Client must provide Scout with valid identification, including but not limited to the address, contact email and/or personal telephone number.
The User shall ensure that the registration details are kept up-to-date and shall make any necessary changes of name, address, or e-mail address on Scout’s website without undue delay. It is the player’s responsibility to inform us immediately of any changes to the player’s personal information.
In the event that Scout has reason to believe that the information given is inaccurate, We are entitled to suspend or terminate User’s account and retain any winnings.
When the customer submits his first request for withdrawal, details of his personal bank account or any other payment method available and acceptable for such withdrawal should be provided to Scout.
The CLIENT is responsible for securing their Scout account's Username and Password, and Scout cannot be held responsible for any damage resulting from the CLIENT's inappropriate or irregular use of their Account.

A Client must register personally and not on behalf of someone else.
The Client is not allowed to register if he/she is already registered on Scout website with an active account; Only one account per person is allowed. Use of more than one Account per physical player is known as “multi-accounting” and as such is strictly forbidden. Scout retains the right to close a User Account at any time and to cancel all the transactions pertaining to any Player that has registered more than one Account in his own name or under different names, in the event that Scout has the reason to suspect that the registration of said multiple Accounts has been undertaken with the intent of defrauding or cheating.

We are under no obligation to advise the client of such checks taking place. We shall be entitled to suspend or restrict your account in any manner that we may deem to be appropriate, until such time as the relevant checks are completed to our satisfaction.
5. Password Security
The User is advised to choose a strong and non-predictable password for security and is responsible for ensuring that this password is kept secret.
It is the Player’s responsibility to ensure they keep their Username and security details (including password) confidential, and games made online on the website under Player’s Username and security details will be regarded as valid, irrespective of who participates in the game. In the event that there is concern that the secrecy of such details is no longer the case, Player should notify Scout immediately whereupon new details may be forwarded and any future transactions under the previous details would be considered void.
Scout is in no way responsible for the eventual access to a User Account by a third person and will not be held responsible for any eventual loss suffered due to the illicit use of a Player’s password by a third person, of unauthorized access, and/or for any transaction in which the name and password of a Player was registered correctly.

24. Responsible Gambling
Scout wants to ensure that its Clients gamble in a responsible manner, but we also acknowledge that gambling can be addictive to some and affect their lives negatively. Since we care for our Clients, and want online gaming to be an enjoyable experience, we offer various measures for a Client to gamble in a responsible manner. These can be set by the Client through the website and include the following:
–Set Limits on bets, losses and deposits
–Self-exclude for a period of minimum 6 months, 12 months and 5 years.
If you believe that you might be negatively addicted to gambling, we encourage you to seek professional help.
If you choose self-exclusion, you'll be taken out of future contests, and your entry fees for those contests will be returned to your account. For contests that have already begun, you will be unable to make changes and Scout will retain the entry fees. You can still withdraw the funds in your account and any winnings from contests that started before you chose self-exclusion.
Scout accepts and handles customer complaints and disputes in a timely, fair, and open manner. We encourage all customers to contact us as soon as possible to resolve any issues that might arise.
In order to resolve the complaint as quickly as possible, we advise our customers to contact us via chat or email and provide us with the following information:
- Your name and your username
- Full details of the complaint including what happened, when, how, why, any evidence available, etc.
