These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) apply to www.ecogra.org (the “Website”).
Please read these Terms carefully as they contain important information regarding your legal rights, remedies, and obligations with respect to your use of the Website, including but not limited to various limitations, exclusions, and indemnities.
No Reliance on Information
The content on the Website is provided for general information only. It is not intended to amount to advice or serve as a substitute for any audit, professional advice, consultation, or service.
All information and services are provided “as is” without warranty of any kind. eCOGRA hereby disclaims all warranties and conditions with regard to the information and services, including all implied warranties and conditions. In no event shall eCOGRA be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive or any other damages whatsoever. Without limiting the foregoing sentence, eCOGRA shall not be liable for any damages for loss of data, loss of profits or loss of use in any way connected with the use or performance of this Website, the delay or inability to use this Website, or for any information or services obtained through this Website. eCOGRA shall not be liable for any such damages, whether based on contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, even if eCOGRA has been advised of the possibility of damages.
eCOGRA’s objectives include setting standards for lawful online gambling by, inter alia, requiring sealholders whose websites bear the eCOGRA name and logo to adhere to rigorous technical and ethical standards. While online gambling is legal in many jurisdictions throughout the world, eCOGRA recognises that some jurisdictions have passed laws restricting or even prohibiting online gambling altogether. In fact, some of these laws criminalise online gambling and may subject violators to imprisonment and may require violators to pay substantial fines. Accordingly, eCOGRA does not condone, endorse, sponsor, authorise, approve of, promote, or encourage in any way, shape, or form, unlawful online gambling by anyone, anywhere, and at any time.
In accordance with the foregoing, no person or entity should interpret eCOGRA certification, or the display of the eCOGRA name, symbol, “Play It Safe” logo or “Safe and Fair” logo on any webpage or website as an indication that it is lawful to engage in online gambling from within any jurisdiction. We emphasise that, prior to engaging in any form of online gambling, it is your responsibility to seek legal advice and determine whether you may do so lawfully.
