Terms and conditions
This Terms of Service applies to SBC Directory, as well as other SBC websites, apps, communications and other services that incorporate data and/or features from SBC Directory and state that they are offered under this Terms of Service (“Services”). Registered users of our Services are “Users” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Terms of Service applies to both Users and Visitors.SBC
Information on the Services is provided as a free service to Visitors, and such information is provided by the Users or compiled by SBC from publicly available sources. SBC makes no warranty as to the accuracy of the information or its fitness for any purpose. Visitors and Users seeking to use the information provided for any purpose that could result in financial loss or other risk should independently verify the information.
The Services are operated by Sports Betting Community Limited (also referred to as “SBC”, “we” and “us”), and in using the Services as a User or Visitor you agree to abide by the terms contained in these Terms of Service.
Users and Visitors
When you visit https://sbcdirectory.com, or another site or service covered by this Terms of Service without logging in, you may access certain information as a “Visitor”. Your usage of the Services as a Visitor is subject to all of the terms contained in this Terms of Service other than those that are specifically noted as only applying to Users.
Companies that register with SBC in order to claim their company profile will be given login credentials in order to access the self-service tools to maintain their company profile. When logged in to the Services using such credentials you are a “User”, and subject to the additional terms contained herein that apply to Users.
Company Access - Adding, Modifying or Removing Information
Any company operating in the relevant industries covered by SBC Directory may request to be added to the directory, or may claim their directory listing if the company is already included with an unclaimed listing. There is no charge to add or claim a basic listing, though certain features will require a paid subscription to a higher tier. Companies will be provided with one or more User accounts in order to be able to maintain the information in their directory listing.
If you are unable to access your User account to update your listing, or wish to have your company removed from the SBC Directory entirely, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to prevent unauthorised access to User accounts or other malicious actions to change information or remove companies from the directory, we may require verification of your identity as well as your authority to represent the company.
- Applicability Services
The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 18.
To use the Services as a User, you agree that: (1) you must be the "Minimum Age" (described below) or older and (2) you are not already restricted by SBC from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 18.
"Minimum Age" means 18 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for SBC to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.
Users are account holders. You agree to: (1) choose a strong and secure password; (2) keep your password secure and confidential; and (3) not transfer data from your account or share access to any part of your account. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse.
As accounts are used to access and maintain company profiles, as a User your company may request to disable access to the company profile.
Access to some parts of the Services may be restricted to only those Users who are granted access by SBC, based on the tier of service subscribed to by the company or the access rights the subscriber company grants to that User. You acknowledge and accept that your access to any part of the Services may be limited by such restrictions which shall be determined by SBC at its sole discretion.
Notices and Messages
If you are a User, you agree that we will provide notices and messages to you sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number, physical address). You agree to keep your contact information up to date.

Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
You and SBC agree that the laws of England and Wales shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to these Terms of Service and/or the Services.

If the court cannot do that, you and we agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of the Terms of Service.
These Terms of Service (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.

However, you agree that SBC may assign any of its rights under these Terms of Service to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent.
