Terms of Use

(Updated:17 August 2011)

1. Privacy

Our Privacy Policy describes how we collect information about you and share it with others, and how we collect and can use your content and information. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy, and to use it to help make informed decisions when registering with SportsCentral.com.my.

2. Content and Information

You own all of the content and information you supply to us on SportsCentral.com.my in the registration process as well as in the course of using our website. As disclosed in the privacy policy, save for your personal contact number and date of birth, most of the information you supplied to SportsCentral.com.my will be viewable by others.

For content that is covered by intellectual property rights (e.g. photos or pictures) (“IP Content”), you specifically grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free license to use any IP Content that you supply to SportsCentral.com.my (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP Content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.

The main purpose of using SportsCentral.com.my as a tool to organise your sporting games is to facilitate the sharing information about yourself, your interest and other personal information. Such personal information is shared to allow others to know you better when assessing your games, requests and when dealing with you. We at SportsCentral.com.my provide this platform of information sharing to allow a better player matching – so that, for example, when you request to join other people’s session, your skill level will not be overwhelming or underwhelming to existing participants, so much so that it spoils the fun for everyone, including yourself.

We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about SportsCentral.com.my, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).

3. Safety

We do our best to keep SportsCentral.com.my safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to do that, which includes the following commitments:

(i) You will not send or otherwise post unauthorised commercial communications (such as spam) on SportsCentral.com.my.
(ii) You will not collect users' content or information, or otherwise access SportsCentral.com.my, using automated means (such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers) without our permission.
(iii) You will not upload viruses or other malicious code.
(iv) You will not solicit login information or access an account belonging to someone else.
(v) You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user.
(vi) You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.
(vii) You will not use SportsCentral.com.my to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory.
(viii) You will not do anything that could disable, overburden, or impair the proper working of SportsCentral.com.my, such as a denial of service attack.

4. Registration and Account Security

Here are some commitments required of you as a user of SportsCentral.com.my with regards to registering and maintaining the security of your accounts:

(i) You will not provide any false personal information on SportsCentral.com.my, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission
(ii) You will not create more than one personal profile
(iii) If we disable your account, you will not create another one without our permission
(iv) You will not use your personal profile for your own commercial gain
(v) You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date
(vi) You will not share your password, let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardise the security of your account
(vii) If you select a username for your account, we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe appropriate (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user’s actual name)

5. Find a Venue

SportsCentral.com.my provides a directory of sporting venues for the type of sports that we choose to implement. There are 2 categories of venues that we list on our directory – the Participating Venues (marked by a red ball) and normal venues.

‘Participating Venues’ are venues which our SportsCentral.com.my team have directly engaged with and signed them up to use our service. The information regarding these venues are obtained directly from the venue operators. Although we strive to keep the information as updated, complete and accurate as possible, we cannot guarantee that the information is reliable.

For all the other venues listed (i.e. non-participating venues), their information were extracted from the internet and provided herein purely for informational purposes only. We do not warrant the accuracy of their information.

The advantage for participating venues is that users/players can do the following:

(i) Host games
(ii) Join games
(iii) Hold team challenges
(iv) Advertise events

Also, when we introduce or implement new features, the features will first be made available in participating venues.

6. Host a Game / Join a Game

SportsCentral.com.my provides a platform for you to ‘Host a Game’, i.e. invite other players to join your game. Once you have hosted a game, players who want to ‘Join a Game’ will be able to search and view your gaming session which includes information on the players who have joined your game, skill levels and location.

As a host, you will have to ensure that your games are held – i.e. actual venue bookings have been made. Otherwise, if you are looking for players to play with, you are encouraged to join a hosted game instead.

Players who want to join a particular session will first have to ’request’ from the Host for permission to join his/her session and will only be allowed to join after the ‘host’ accepts the request.

SportsCentral.com.my merely provides the platform for the service, and will not be responsible for any misleading games hosting or no-shows by players who have requested to join. You may however, email us to lodge any complaints if you discover any players who are abusing our website. Our team shall investigate and take the necessary steps to address the issue.

7. Challenge Feature

SportsCentral.com.my has put in place a feature that will allow players to form a team and start challenging others. Scores from such challenge can only be submitted via Participating Venue operators.

SportsCentral.com.my will update the scores for team challenge based on the score sheets received. Team leaders would have 7 days to verify the results and email us if there are any errors found. Upon expiry of the 7 days period from the date of posting the results, SportsCentral.com.my reserve the right not to entertain any further request to change the scores.
