Battlelab AB (“Battlelab“, “we,” “us,” or “our“), a Swedish limited liability corporation with registration no. 556989-7498 and with registered address Södermalmsallén 36, 118 28 Stockholm, Sweden, provides a digital, competitive gaming software platform that offers online esports infrastructure to key stakeholders in the industry including players, organizers and game developers, available at https://battlelab.gg (the “Platform“).

Battlelab offers the Platform (which includes the “Marketplace” and “Spaces“) and the “Developer API“. In addition to these Terms (as defined below) the Marketplace is governed by the Marketplace Policy, the Spaces are governed by the Space Policy and the Developer API is governed by the API Terms of Use. The Marketplace enables Service Providers (as defined below) to offer certain services on the Platform and Spaces consists of membership communities on the Platform created by Users and/or Organizers (both defined below). The Developer API provides developers enhanced integration and development features related to the Platform.

These terms of use (the “Terms“) shall – save for Your use of the Battlelab (i) Space (ii) Marketplace, and (ii) Developer API, the three of which, in whole or in part, are governed by their separate terms and conditions – govern your (“You“, “Your” or “Yourself“) access and use of the Platform.

These Terms enter into effect between You and us when You have completed the registration process in accordance with what is stated herein and remain in effect until terminated in accordance herewith.

  1. The purpose of the Platform

1.1 The Platform enables registered users (“Users“) and other third parties (“Organizers“) to provide certain game related services (“Services“, as further detailed herein) on the Platform and to transact and communicate directly with other Users that are looking to engage with or purchase such Services. Services may include:

i. offering or conducting tournaments, leagues, ladders or competitions in competitive computer games (together “Competitions“),

ii. coaching and esports related services offered through the Battlelab Marketplace,

iii. local events, broadcasting events and other gaming experiences,

iv. access to exclusive membership services (“Subscriptions“) through gaming communities known as “Spaces“, and

v. other gaming and non-gaming related services, defined herein as necessary.

1.2 Users are able to compete in Competitions in the competitive computer games which are supported on the Platform from time-to-time. Users (and only Users) will be able to participate in such Competitions, whether they are organized by Battlelab, individual Users or Organizers. Competitions provided on the Platform are categorized as “games of skill” and the outcome of any matches played in a Competition (herein referred to as a “Match“) is solely the result of skill, not chance.

1.3 The computer games (“Game Titles“) provided through or integrated with the Platform are offered as-is and are owned by the respective game developer or publisher (“Game Owners“). Game Titles that are provided through the Platform are available to Users and Organizers solely for the purpose of playing, hosting and organizing Competitions, for creating Spaces and to monetize these Spaces or audiences on the Platform. For clarity, Game Owners may through separate agreements with Battlelab restrict or limit the extent to which Users and Organizers can offer Services and Competitions through the Platform. As such, the use case for the different Game Titles on the Platform may vary.

6.2 You are only permitted to register one active User Account on the Platform. Battlelab reserves the right, but is not obliged, to monitor any effort to establish multiple User Accounts.

The minimum limit for deposits to Your User Account on the Platform equals EUR three (3). No interest is payable on the funds. All payments must be made from a bank or payment account for which You are the named account holder.

7.3 Any attempt to defraud the Platform through the use of credit cards or other methods of payment, regardless of the outcome, or any failure by You to honor legitimate charges or requests for payment, or confirmation of deposits, will result in immediate termination of Your User Account and forfeiture of any prizes.

7.4 Your interactions with Organizers or Users found on or through the Platform, including payments for and participation in any Services, are solely between You and such Users or Organizers. It is the responsibility of You to make whatever investigation You feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transactions and/or agreements with any of these third parties. You agree that Battlelab shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.

  1. Subscriptions and other paid Services

8.1 As a member of a Space on the Platform (“Member“) You are able to attain additional benefits (as specified by the Space Owner) by paying for a membership Subscription, making a donation or by paying a one-time fee. Such paid Services are subject to the terms and limitations of the Platform as provided by us from time-to-time, and whether or not such paid Services are available in a certain Space is up to each Space Owner. Please see the Space Owner’s rules for further details.

8.2 Some Competitions or series of Competitions may require You to pay for a ticket (also referred to as an entry fee) in order to be eligible to participate. In some cases, such an entry fee may be pooled together with entry fees paid by other participants to create the prize pool for the Competition at hand. Battlelab retains the right to charge a platform fee on all entry fee transactions paid by Users for a Competition.

8.3 For clarity, Services are offered by other Users or Organizers (in this context referred to as “Service Providers“), and not by Battlelab or Battlelab employees. The fees for such Services are set by the Service Provider.

8.4 By default, all payments are made with funds contained in Your User Account. In order to pay for such Services or Competitions mentioned above, You must have available funds. These Funds can be attained either by (i) depositing them directly to Your User Account through the third-party Payment Provider used by Battlelab for the Platform from time-to-time (ii) through promotions offered by Battlelab, or (iii) as a result of winning Competitions with monetary prizes funded via the Platform.

  1. Withdrawals and Payouts

9.1 You may request a withdrawal of available funds from Your User Account at any time. Withdrawal privileges may be revoked to such an extent as reasonably required for security purposes when fraud is suspected or if Your User Account has been banned.

9.2 As a general rule, the minimum withdrawal allowed equals EUR ten (10). Please note that there is a seven (7) day grace period on withdrawals for new User Accounts, during which it is not possible to make a withdrawal.

9.3 Withdrawals are subject to a transaction and administration fee amounting to a fixed fee and/or percentage of the withdrawn amount (depending on the terms applied by the applicable Payment Provider) which is initially paid by Battlelab. In order to compensate for the incurred costs, Battlelab deducts a withdrawal fee from the withdrawn funds (“Withdrawal Fee“). The current Withdrawal Fee is displayed in the price list made available to You here.

9.4 You are advised to contact our customer support at support@Battlelab.gg if the withdrawal is not received by You within three (3) business days from Your withdrawal request is made.

9.5 To prevent fraudulent behavior and account hijacking, Battlelab reserves the right to, for such security purposes, require You or the credit card holder (if applicable) to submit proper identification and proof of eligibility prior to any request of withdrawal verification of identification, in order to ascertain the validity of a withdrawal request and Your identity. If such a request is made by Battlelab, withdrawal payments will not be made until proper verification is received by Battlelab. If we do not receive the required verification within (10) business days, the withdrawal request will be cancelled, the User Account in question will be suspended, and You will be contacted by email with further information.

10.1 You may terminate Your User Account at any time. We recommend You do so by contacting the support directly on support@Battlelab.gg.

10.2 Battlelab will upon Your termination of Your account as set out in Section 6.7.1 above transfer any remaining funds in Your User Account (subject to the deduction of relevant withdrawal charges) to Your connected payment method or payment wallet. However, if the termination of Your User Account is due to Your material breach of these Terms, You may – if the circumstances so require – not be entitled to refunds of any remaining funds on Your User Account.

10.3 If You want to recover funds from closed, blocked or excluded User Accounts, You need to contact our customer support at support@battlelab.gg.

Account closure means that any funds still residing in Your account balance may be transferred back to Battlelab to be used for promotional purposes, donated to connected charities or otherwise used to further improve the Platform.

  1. Third-party Payment Providers

12.1 Battlelab uses the services of third-party electronic payment processors and financial institutions (herein referred to as “Payment Providers“) to process deposits and withdrawals into and from the User Accounts. The deposit and withdrawal of funds to Your User Account is subject to these Terms, and where applicable, the third-party Payment Provider’s terms and conditions.

12.2 You hereby authorize Battlelab to instruct such Payment Providers (e.g. PayPal) to handle Your User Account deposits and withdrawals from Your User Account, as reasonably required to provide the Services and Competitions on the Platform. You agree that Battlelab is not liable for any loss caused by any unauthorized use of Your credit card or other method of payment by a third-party in connection with the use of the Platform.

  1. Malfunctions, Fraud, Unauthorized Access and suspension or termination of user accounts

13.1 The Platform is cloud based and provided via the Internet, and actual availability is hence dependent on factors partly outside of Battlelab’s control. You agree, without limitation, that Battlelab is not responsible for technical, hardware or software malfunctions, lost or unavailable network connections, disconnects from the Competitions or Matches played on the Platform, or any incorrect or inaccurate results that may be posted on or in relation to a Competition or Match.

iv. intentionally play poorly below Your skill level in order to be matched with a less skilled User;

v. participate in any Competition offered on the Platform by means of automatic, macro, programmed bots, or similar methods, or to otherwise commit fraud with regard to the Platform; or

13.3 Battlelab, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to suspend or terminate any User’s User Account who is guilty of breaching any of the provisions set out in Section 8.2 above, or who otherwise violates these Terms.

13.4 For breaches of the Terms (including the Rules of Conduct in Section 20 below) that are deemed by Battlelab, in its sole discretion, to be unintentional or less serious, first time offenders may receive an initial warning and may have their User Account suspended at the discretion of Battlelab. Repeated offences will be deemed to be intentionally violating the Terms. If You are suspected of having violated the Rules of Conduct, Battlelab reserves the right to suspend Your User Account, including any access to the Platform, or freeze the funds and any account balance or withdrawals pending for up to six months while an investigation occurs.

13.5 If You have obtained any balances due to violation of the Terms, Battlelab reserves the right to withdraw such balances from Your User Account upon termination or removal of Your User Account and reuse the balances for promotional purposes, donations to connected charities or otherwise to further improve the Platform.

  1. Matches and Matchmaking

Once You have joined a Match through Matchmaking or otherwise, You agree to play the Match to completion with any matched teammates or opponents.

  1. Third-party Organizers and Spaces

17.1 Battlelab is not the host of the Services, activities or Competitions available in any of the Spaces on the Platform, unless explicitly stated otherwise.

17.2 Users and Organizers can create a Space on the Platform. Users and Organizers that host such Spaces are within that context referred to as “Space Owners“.

18.3 Users and Organizers that offer prizes to participants of Competitions are obligated to deliver such prizes, monetary or otherwise, to the winners of the Competitions in a timely manner. Battlelab reserves the right to temporarily or permanently ban Organizers who violate these rules. However, for the avoidance of doubt, Battlelab is under no obligation to provide and does not guarantee any prizes, offers or winnings offered by third-party Organizers.

18.4 The outcome of the Matches and Competitions are directly related to the number of participants and the skill level of each participant. Battlelab does not comment and makes no representations about Your or any other User’s chances of winning or losing.

18.5 All monetary prizes issued through the Platform are added as funds in the winner’s User Account. All funds and prizes are denominated in EUR unless otherwise noted.
