CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
By entering a Game, entrants agree to be bound by these Agreements and the decisions of DraftKings, which shall be final and binding in all respects. The Company, at its sole discretion, may disqualify any entrant from a Game, refuse to award benefits or prizes, and/or require the return of any prizes, if the entrant engages in conduct or otherwise utilizes any information the Company deems to be improper, unfair, or otherwise adverse to the operation of the Game or is in any way detrimental to other entrants. These Agreements prohibit entering a Game if the entrant is:
- Except as otherwise stated in the Eligibility section above, an Employee or a person who resides in the same household as an Employee;
- Accessing or has had access to any pre-release, confidential information, or other information that is not available to all other entrants of a Game and that provides the entrant an advantage in such a Game, including any information from any gaming site or information from a sports governing body (e.g., pre-release injury information) ("Pre-Release Data");

- In breach of any rules or policies of the entrant's employer, of any sports governing body, or any other professional body of which the entrant is a member, including any rule or policy regarding participation in Games or accepting prize money;
- Any person prohibited from participating pursuant to court order; or
- Any entrant who has knowingly received Pre-Release Data or any other non-public information that provides an advantage in a Game from any person who is prohibited from entering a Game as provided in these Terms.
In addition, conduct that would be deemed improper also includes, but is not limited to:
- Falsifying personal information required to enter a Game or claim a prize;

- Tampering with the administration of a Game or trying to in any way tamper with the computer programs or any security measure associated with a Game;
- Obtaining other entrants' information and spamming other entrants; or
- Abusing the Website in any way.
You further acknowledge that the forfeiture and/or return of any prize shall in no way prevent DraftKings from pursuing criminal or civil proceedings in connection with such conduct.
By entering into a Game or accepting any prize, entrants, including but not limited to the winner(s), agree to indemnify, release, and to hold harmless DraftKings, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, advertising and promotion partners, and service providers, as well as the officers, directors, employees, shareholders, representatives, successors, and assigns of any of the foregoing entities (collectively, the "Released Parties") from any and all liability, claims, or actions of any kind whatsoever, including but not limited to injuries, damages, or losses to persons and property which may be sustained in connection with participation in the Game, the receipt, ownership, use, or misuse of any prize, or while preparing for, participating in, and/or travelling to or from any prize related activity, as well as any claims based on publicity rights, defamation, or invasion of privacy. DraftKings may, in its sole and absolute discretion, require an Authorized Account Holder to execute a separate release of claims as a condition of being awarded any prize or receiving any payout.
DraftKings is not responsible for: any incorrect, invalid, or inaccurate entry information; human errors; postal delays/postage due mail; technical malfunctions; failures, including public utility or telephone outages; omissions, interruptions, deletions, or defects of any telephone system or network, computer online systems, data, computer equipment, servers, providers, or software (including, but not limited to software and operating systems that do not permit an entrant to participate in a Game), including without limitation any injury or damage to any entrant's or any other person's computer or video equipment relating to or resulting from participation in a Game or use of the Website; inability to access the Website, or any web pages that are part of or related to the Website; theft, tampering, destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, entries and/or images of any kind; data that is processed late or incorrectly or is incomplete or lost due to telephone, postal issues, computer or electronic malfunction, or traffic congestion on telephone lines or transmission systems, or the Internet, or any service provider's facilities, or any phone site or website or for any other reason whatsoever; typographical, printing or other errors, or any combination thereof.
DraftKings is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, or stolen entries. If for any reason a Game is not capable of running as originally planned, or if a Game, computer application, or website associated therewith (or any portion thereof) becomes corrupted or does not allow the proper entry to a Game in accordance with these Agreements, or if infection by a computer (or similar) virus, bug, tampering, unauthorized intervention, actions by entrants, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes of any kind, in the sole opinion of DraftKings corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of a Game, the Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual implicated in such action, to cancel, terminate, extend, modify, or suspend the Game, and/or select the winner(s) from all eligible entries received. If such cancellation, termination, modification, or suspension occurs, notification will be posted on the Website.
ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THE WEBSITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF ANY GAME IS A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, DRAFTKINGS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND OTHER REMEDIES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
All entries become the property of DraftKings and will not be acknowledged or returned.
To be eligible to enter any Game or receive any prize, the Authorized Account Holder may be required to provide DraftKings with additional documentation and/or information to verify the identity of the Authorized Account Holder, and to provide proof that all eligibility requirements are met. In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of an Authorized Account Holder, DraftKings will, in its sole and absolute discretion, utilize certain information collected by DraftKings to assist in verifying the identity and/or eligibility of such Authorized Account Holder.
Participation in each Game must be made only as specified in these Agreements. Failure to comply with these Agreements will result in disqualification and, if applicable, prize forfeiture.
Where legal, both entrants and winners consent to the use of their name, voice, and likeness/photograph in and in connection with the development, production, distribution, and/or exploitation of any Game or the Website. Winners agree that from the date of notification by DraftKings of their status as a potential winner, and continuing until such time when DraftKings informs them that they no longer need to do so, that they will make themselves available to DraftKings for publicity, advertising, and promotion activities.
GAME PRIZES AND PROMOTIONS
Prizes will only be awarded if a Game is run. We reserve the right to cancel Games at any time. In the event of a cancellation, all entry fees will be refunded to the Account except as specifically provided in these Agreements.
The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make the determination whether you are interacting with the platform in a responsible way in accordance with Company policies and procedures. The Company shall also permit the Authorized Account Holder to set responsible gaming limits, to self-exclude, and to suspend your account for no less than seventy two (72) hours. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to impose stricter responsible gaming limits than those imposed by the Authorized Account Holder and exclude such Authorized Account Holder.

OTHER LEGAL RESTRICTIONS
GAME STATISTICS AND LIVE SCORING
To the extent that DraftKings offers "live" statistics during gameplay, all "live" statistics and other information provided through the Website and related information sources are unofficial. Live sports statistics and their respective components are offered for informational and/or entertainment purposes only and are not used to determine the results of our Games. While DraftKings and the third parties used to provide the Services use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information, neither DraftKings nor its third party providers warrant or make any representations of any kind with respect to the information provided through the DraftKings Website and related information sources. DraftKings and its third party providers shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness, or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the Website and related information sources, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.
To the extent applicable, Game results and prize calculations are based on the final statistics and scoring results at the completion of the last sports game of each individual Game. Once Game results are reviewed and graded, prizes are awarded. The scoring results of a Game will not be changed regardless of any official statistics or scoring adjustments made by the leagues at later times or dates, except in DraftKings' sole and absolute discretion.
DraftKings reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to deny any customer or participant the ability to participate in Games for any reason whatsoever. Further, DraftKings may, in its sole and absolute discretion, invalidate any head-to-head Game result for the purposes of preventing abusive and/or any unfair or potentially unlawful activity, or in the event that there is a risk of any such abusive, illegal, or unfair activity.
In the event of any malfunction, all pays are void.
Subject to the Company verifying your compliance with these Agreements and other conditions of participation, at the conclusion of each Game, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to award the winnings and/or prizes within a reasonable amount of time.
PAYMENT AND WITHDRAWAL OF PRIZES
Before making any payment, DraftKings may require that an entrant complete and execute an affidavit of eligibility in which, among other things, the entrant is required to represent and warrant that the entrant is eligible to participate in a Game and is otherwise in compliance with these Agreements and may require an entrant to provide documentation or proof of eligibility and compliance with these Agreements. In the event DraftKings requests that an entrant completes and executes such an affidavit and/or provide documentation, and the entrant fails to do so within seven (7) days, or DraftKings otherwise determines that the entrant does not meet the eligibility requirements or is not in compliance with these Agreements, DraftKings reserves the right to terminate the entrant's account and withhold or revoke the awarding of any prizes associated with such account. In such a situation, DraftKings may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant Game in a manner consistent with the Rules of the Game.
Entrants may withdraw their cash prize awards as well as cash deposits by using the "Withdrawal" option on the Website. Entrants may be requested to complete an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (unless prohibited by law) and/or appropriate tax forms and forms of identification, including, but not limited to, a driver's license, proof of residence, and/or any information relating to payment/deposit accounts as reasonably requested by DraftKings in order to complete the withdrawal of prizes. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in disqualification and forfeiture of any prizes. Disqualification or forfeiture of any prizes may also occur if it is determined any such entrant did not comply with these Agreements in any manner.
Checks for withdrawal requests are processed within ten (10) business days, and are sent via U.S. Mail. Promotional deposits, credits, and other bonuses may not be withdrawn from a DraftKings Account unless appropriate terms of the promotion are achieved first by the user.
In the event that the awarding of any prize(s) to winners of Games is challenged by any legal authority, DraftKings reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prize(s).
No substitution or transfer of any prize is permitted, except that DraftKings reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal value or greater if the advertised prize is unavailable. All prizes are awarded "as is" and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability for a particular purpose).
DraftKings will take appropriate steps to prevent unauthorized withdrawals from consumer Accounts. Users are subject to an automated Knowledge Base Authentication verification process provided whenever a user attempts to withdraw funds. This process asks a series of at least four (4) multiple choice questions about the person's life, such as known relatives, previous addresses, and to enter their last four (4) digits of their tax ID or Social Security number. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a customer, DraftKings can and does require its users to produce a copy of their driver's license, credit cards, utility bills, and/or passport for identity verification. If a customer cannot validate their identity and account, DraftKings will not release the funds from the account.
Players who believe that funds held by, or their accounts with, DraftKings have been misallocated, compromised, or otherwise mishandled, may register a complaint with DraftKings, by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to 222 Berkeley Street, 5th Floor, Boston, Massachusetts 02116. DraftKings shall use its best efforts to respond to such complaints within five (5) days. If DraftKings determines that the relief requested in the complaint will not be granted, its response will set forth the specific reason(s) therefore. If more information is required for DraftKings to process the complaint, the response will note the form and nature of the necessary additional information needed. You consent to have DraftKings monitor and record any communications you have with DraftKings.
A player can request to withdraw funds from their account at any time. Requests for withdrawal will be honored within five (5) business days unless DraftKings has good and sufficient reason to refuse the withdrawal or believes in good faith that the player engaged in either fraudulent conduct or other conduct that would put DraftKings in violation of applicable law. A request for withdrawal will be considered honored if it is processed by DraftKings but delayed by a payment processor, credit card issuer, or by the custodian of a financial account. Players can also permanently close their account at any time for any reason through the DraftKings customer service department.
Players can obtain a copy of their Account statements by emailing customer service at email@example.com.
TERMINATION AND EFFECT OF TERMINATION

In such event, you will immediately cease all access to and use of the Website. DraftKings may revoke any password(s) and/or account identification issued to you and deny you access to and use of the Website. Any such action shall not affect any rights and obligations arising prior thereto.
