A proper reporting means that all participating Users must have reported the results without any contradictions i.e. all reports must consistently state the winner(s) of the Game(s).
In the event of a non-proper or contradictory reporting or else a dispute regarding the outcome of one or more Games, Maxi Players may at its discretion EITHER refund each stake amount back to each participating User’s Wallet OR request that participating Users provide additional evidence, including but not limited to photo or video evidence of Game results.

If You are a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law or if You have no general place of jurisdiction in the Federal Republic of Germany, disputes arising from or in connection with the platform usage agreement are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts at the registered office of the Maxi Players (currently Emmendingen, GERMANY).
Should individual provisions of these GTC or of contracts or agreements concluded between the Parties be fully or partially invalid or unenforceable or become invalid or unenforceable after the conclusion of the respective contract, this shall not affect the validity of the other provisions. Instead, the Parties shall endeavour to agree a substitute regulation that comes as close as possible to the effects of the invalid or unenforceable regulation in a legally permissible and economic way. The aforesaid provisions shall also apply in case regulations should turn out to have gaps.
