PLEASE READ AND MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND ALL THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING OR USING CSL’S SERVICES. THIS IS A BINDING CONTRACT.
The information and materials provided on the Site, including any content, data, graphics, images, video clips, and links (collectively, the “Materials”) are owned exclusively by CSL or its licensors. The Site, and all technology (such as any code or software) and visual design elements that constitute it, are proprietary to CSL and owned and operated exclusively by CSL. You acknowledge that the Site is protected by copyright, trademark and other laws. You further acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership rights by using the Site or the Materials. You shall not challenge, contest or otherwise impair CSL’s ownership of the Site and the content posted or hosted on it.
3.1. CSL & Partner marks: The Site will display trademarks, logos, and service marks of CSL and its partners and sponsors (“Partner Marks”). Partner Marks whether registered or unregistered, may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not offered by CSL, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion with customers, or in any manner that disparages CSL. Any use of the Partner Marks requires the express written permission of CSL or the third party owner of any applicable Partner Mark.
3.2. University & Game marks: The Site may display trademarks, logos, and service marks of Universities in North America and various video games (“Non-Partner Marks”). These Non-Partner Marks are used purely for informational and descriptive purposes, for example, to describe a video game tournament hosted through the Site, or to discuss a university team participating in an event. CSL does not represent that it has any official relationship with or endorsement of any owner of a Non-Party Mark, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
4.3. Account Security: Maintaining account security is very important. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account username and password.
4.4. Rules Related to CSL account Names: When you create an account, you will have to create a username. Your username will be visible to other users. If CSL, in its sole discretion, deems any username to be offensive, indecent, or otherwise in violation of our guidelines, it can change, refuse to allow, or otherwise prohibit that username. Basic username guidelines can be found below:
CSL reserves the right to permanently suspend or terminate any accounts, user access to the Site, and/or disqualify anyone from receiving any prize(s) offered by CSL, if it suspects that anyone has violated any of the User Rules.
4.6 Interruption of Service: CSL cannot guarantee that your use of the Site will be uninterrupted. You agree not to hold CSL liable for any interruption of service of the Site.
5.1. Leagues & Tournaments: Users may participate in CSL leagues and tournaments provided they comply with league and tournament rules, which are found on the Site under the “rules” section for each respective game (I.E.: cstarleague.com/lol/rules). The rules of each particular league and tournament are incorporated here by reference. CSL may, at its sole discretion, deny or reject the participation in a league or tournament of any user, with or without notice.
5.2. Championship: Certain leagues or tournaments have championship events associated with them. Participation in these events is restricted to a qualification system as established on respective “rules” pages, as referenced in Section 5.1. CSL may deny participation in any such event if it is determined that any rules have been violated by any user, including but not limited to, violation of eligibility requirements or failure to provide transcripts.
5.3. Events: CSL may host additional events, either in person or online, for users to participate in. Information about these events will be posted on the Site and or on Social Media, at CSL’s sole discretion. Participation in these events is not guaranteed and CSL makes no warranty about the availability or execution of any such events.
5.4. Prizing: If you win a prize from any league, tournament, or event, CSL will be required to collect certain information from you in order to process payments (“Payment Information”). This information may consist of providing tax forms, bank information for wire transfers, or mailing addresses. Upon conclusion of the league, tournament, or event, CSL will reach out to the contact information listed for your account to request Payment Information. Failure to provide CSL with complete Payment Information within 60 days of being contacted may result in forfeiture of any and all prizing, at CSL’s sole discretion. CSL is not responsible for any incorrect contact information or Payment Information provided to CSL, and CSL may, at its sole discretion, refuse to re-issue prizing that was not received based on incorrect information. CSL cannot guarantee delivery dates of any prizing.
YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF INTERNET WEBSITES AND RESOURCES NOT CONTROLLED BY CSL IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND IS SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE APPLICABLE TO SUCH SITES AND RESOURCES.
We operate official pages on social media platforms (for example: Facebook and Twitter) in relation to the Site (collectively, “Social Media”). You accept that our Social Media may feature certain of your personally identifiable information (“Publicity Content”). You further acknowledge and agree that we have no responsibility for posts made by third parties on Social Media. You hereby grant us an exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, sub-licensable, transferrable license to edit, distribute and exploit the Publicity Content in all media, including, without limitation, print, television and internet. You hereby waive all “moral rights” in any Publicity Content featuring you and give to us all the consents that we need to exploit these items in any media without limitation so far as possible in perpetuity.
8.1. Fees and Payments: Some aspects of the Site may require you to pay a fee. You agree to pay all fees, payments and applicable taxes incurred by your account that you use to access the Site. You acknowledge and agree that all information you provide with regards to a purchase, including, without limitation, credit card or other payment information, is accurate, current and complete. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the payment method you provide to us or our payment processor, including, without limitation, any credit card you provide when completing a transaction. We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to (a) discontinue or limit the available quantity of any product or aspect of the Site; (b) honor, or impose conditions on the honoring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code or other similar promotions; and (c) refuse to allow any user to purchase a product or deliver any product to a user.

Unless otherwise noted, all currency references are in U.S. dollars.
8.2. Return and Refund Policy: All sales on or through the Site are final. Except as provided below, there are no refunds or returns for any purchases through the Site. If you reside in the European Union and you purchase a product or service from CSL, you may have the right to withdraw from a purchase within fourteen calendar days, commencing on the day after the date of purchase (the “Cooling Off Period”). However, you lose your right of withdrawal if the performance of the services begins before the end of the Cooling Off Period.
8.3. Changes to Site, Products and Pricing: CSL may, at any time, revise or change the pricing, availability, specifications, content, descriptions or features of the Site or any products sold through the Site. The inclusion of any products through the Site at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products will be available at any other time. CSL reserves the right to change prices for the Site or any products displayed on or in the Site, at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur. All such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting of such new prices to the Site.
8.4. Order Acceptance/Confirmation: Once we receive your order, we may provide you with an email order confirmation. Any receipt of an order confirmation, however, does not signify CSL’s acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell; we are simply confirming that we received your order. CSL reserves the right at any time after receiving your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. If CSL cancels an order after you have already been billed, then CSL will refund the billed amount.
8.5. Shipment of Products: Title and risk of loss for any purchases of physical products pass to you upon our delivery to our carrier. Unless as a result of events outside of our direct control, orders of physical products purchased by you through the Site will be delivered within the time period specified for the delivery method you have selected.
