Terms of Service
1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
RunYourPool.com provides its services subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at: https://www.RunYourPool.com/tos.cfm. In addition, when using specific RunYourPool.com services, both you and RunYourPool.com shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services which may be changed from time to time. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS.
2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
RunYourPool.com provides pool administrators with a web-based platform for creating, hosting, and managing sports/pop-culture pools. All of our pools are private, and are run at the sole discretion of the pool administrator, who controls and has access to all settings, rules, picks, and other elements associated with their pool. By joining a private pool, pool participants accept that the pool administrator has FULL CONTROL over their pool, and must address any concerns directly with them.
RunYourPool.com provides its pool management service to pool administrators for a small fee. There is no charge for pool participants. By agreeing to these terms of service, pool administrators agree to either pay the full service fee (after the free trial period) or have access denied to their pool until such time as full payment is received by RunYourPool.com. Due to costs we incur for server resources and payment processing, all sales are final.
3. ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY
All services provided by RunYourPool.com are for ENTERTAINMENT/MARKETING PURPOSES ONLY and may not be used in connection with any form of gambling or wagering.
4. RESERVATION OF RIGHTS
RunYourPool.com expressly reserves the right to immediately modify, suspend or terminate any of it's services (including future use) if you have violated or acted inconsistently with the spirit or letter of the Terms of Service. RunYourPool.com expressly reserves the right to alter it's pool offerings (including changes to features and functionality) or to discontinue service, temporarily or permanently, in whole or in part for any reason, with or without notice to you. You agree that RunYourPool.com will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modifications or discontinuance of service.
5. SERVICE INTERRUPTION
RunYourPool.com will make every effort to provide uninterrupted access to it's services. However, RunYourPool.com makes no guarantees that it's service will be available at all times. Such occurrences as extremely high website
traffic, denial of service attacks, power outages, natural disasters, changes in law, strikes, etc. may from time to time
prevent access to RunYourPool.com from all or part of the Internet. RunYourPool.com will make every
reasonable effort to restore access as soon as possible in the event the cause of the interruption is determined to be within it's control.

6. YOUR REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS
To register on RunYourPool.com, pool administrators need to select a type of pool, enter a pool name and password, their name, email address, street address, city, state, country, and zip code.

Pool members will be required to enter similar information upon joining a private pool. Should a user forget his/her password, they may reset their password and have the new password sent to them via the email address on record. If a user has changed email addresses, he/she should notify the pool administrator immediately and the pool administrator will make the necessary changes to the user's account record in an acceptable timeframe.
By agreeing to this TOS document, you agree to allow RunYourPool.com to send you occassional promotional emails for additional RunYourPool.com services. More frequent contact emailings will be sent to Pool Administrators for notifications related to their pools.
