3.4 From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of our site, or our entire site, to users who have registered with us.

5.3 The minimum deposit is £5 and you can only stake up to the amount available in your player account.
5.4 Funds in your player account do not bear interest and are deemed to be advance payments for intended bets.

These funds will be subject to a clearance period determined by the card issuing bank (normally 3-5 working days).
5.7 If there has been no recorded transaction on your player account for a period of 24 consecutive months or more your account will be considered inactive (an "Inactive Account") and we will attempt to rebate all funds we hold in your player account at that time to the card then registered to the player account. If we are unable to do so for any reason, the Inactive Account will then be charged a monthly administrative fee of £2 or 5% of the balance of the account (whichever is the greater) (the "Inactive Account Fee") which shall be deducted from the account on the date that it becomes an Inactive Account and thereafter within 5 days of the 20th day of each following calendar month, whilst the account remains an Inactive Account.
5.8 Any personal and financial details that you provide to us are encrypted during transmission.
