RESPONSIBLE PLAY POLICY
Effective as of 11 April, 2022
Winkel Games (“Winkel Limited,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) offers competitions and tournaments in which outcomes are based upon the skill and knowledge of the competitors ("Services"). Competitions and tournaments are meant to be fun and enjoyable, and it is Winkel's goal to provide users with a fun game environment. However, should you have concerns about your playing habits, you should consider immediate action to limit and/or self-exclude yourself from further gameplay.
We want our users to have fun! But you must do so responsibly. Winkel Games is committed to ensuring responsible playing. The following provides advice and information regarding the measures Winkel Games has put in place in order to ensure a fair, safe, and responsible environment.
You may voluntarily self-exclude yourself from accessing the Services at any time by emailing us at email@example.com. Your request must include your full name, full residential address, and email address so we may verify your account and block your access to the Services. The self-exclusion will last for a period of at least three (3) months. We will not reopen any self-excluded account prior to the three (3) month self-exclusion period; however, after the expiry of the minimal exclusion period, you may contact us and ask for your account to be re-activated. The self-exclusion will only be lifted seven (7) days after we receive your written email requesting to reinstate your account.
By voluntarily self-excluding, you agree to provide full and accurate personal details, now and in the future, so as to allow access to, and/or use of, our Services to be restricted. If you choose to self-exclude, we will use all reasonable efforts to ensure we comply with your self-exclusion. However, in agreeing to self-exclude, you accept that you have a parallel responsibility not to attempt to circumvent voluntary self-exclusion. Accordingly, we have no responsibility or liability for any subsequent consequences or losses, howsoever caused, that you may suffer or incur if you commence or continue to access or make use of the Services through additional online accounts in circumstances where you have changed any of the registration details, provide misleading, inaccurate or incomplete details, or otherwise seek to circumvent the voluntary self-exclusion to which you agreed.
During the period of self-exclusion, we will use reasonable efforts to not send you any marketing materials and we will not accept any deposits or entries from you. During the period of self-exclusion, you may not open a new account. Please remember that according to our Terms and Services, you may only register for a single account and may not use or access multiple accounts at the same time. Should we find that you have created an alternative account in order to circumvent the self-exclusion process, we will immediately terminate your account(s), and you will be banned from further accessing the Services.
You may also elect to close your account at any time. If you wish to terminate your account, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that any prizes assigned to your account will be forfeited upon termination.
Winkel Games recommends that you set daily limits in order to avoid excessive use of the Services. Winkel Games provides you the option to set daily, weekly, or monthly deposit limitations. You may set limits by contacting us at email@example.com. We will use best efforts to implement limits immediately; however, until in place, you are responsible for ensuring that you do not exceed the limits you have set for yourself. You can change or revoke the limits you have set at any time.

Winkel Games does not permit users under the age of 18 (or higher in certain jurisdictions) to register an account to access the Services. In the event you believe a user is under the age of majority, please contact us at email@example.com.
Please be advised that while Winkel Games uses best efforts to verify users' age to prevent minors from accessing the Services, you are solely responsible for controlling and supervising your children. In order to ensure the Services are not accessed by users under the age of 18, we encourage you to do the following:

Do not give children access to your device with the Services open or easily accessible.
Do not use the “Remember my Account” feature on a shared device.

Restrict your child’s access to gaming platforms.
You can view your game history via our app, to see the total amount spent, total winnings, and losses.
Social Media Platforms
The online advertising of game products has increased over time on social media platforms; you can limit your exposure to such advertisements using the tools provided through some social media platforms.
Winkel Games will use its best efforts to ensure that you use the Services responsibly. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and without prior notice, to undertake any of the measures included in this Responsible Play Policy (including, but not limited to, restricting and/or terminating your access to the Services) if at any time we feel you (or someone you know) are abusing the Services and/or acting irresponsibly by engaging in habits and/or behaviors that may be harmful to you.
