The CGS App allows users to host tournaments and join tournaments hosted by fellow users. Each tournament may have a different set of mechanics and parameters, including but not limited to qualifications for entry, determination of winners, eligibility for rewards or prizes, and distribution thereof.

Though Coda may from time to time provide support to Hosts by partnering with them, sponsoring rewards or prizes, or assisting in the administration and awarding thereof, Hosts shall remain responsible for the selection of winners, the mechanics for the distribution of rewards and prizes, the determination of recipients’ eligibility therefor, and other relevant parameters.

(c) Coda reserves the right to suspend, terminate, or remove any tournament that does not comply with the applicable permits, licences, or authorisations for regulated promotional events.

8.3. Reference within the CGS App to any other products, software, services, processes, or other information by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, or otherwise does not constitute and should not imply any affiliation with Coda, nor our endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation of such other products, software, services, or processes.

9. Liability, Warranty, and Disclaimer

9.1. Limitation of liability

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Coda and its respective employees, directors, agents, and representatives will not be liable for any indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages arising out of or in connection with your use of the CGS App.

9.2. No warranty

The CGS App is provided on an "as is" basis. We do not guarantee that it will be uninterrupted, error-free, secure, or free from viruses or other harmful computer software. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Coda makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, regarding the CGS App, including without limitation, any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement of third-party rights.

10. General Provisions

10.1. Links to third-party sites

Links to third-party sites provided within the CGS App may lead you to outside the app. Please note that the linked sites may not be under the ownership or control of Coda, and you therefore access them at your own risk. Coda is not responsible for the contents, terms of use, or privacy practices of any such linked third-party sites, or any link contained within a linked site, including any changes or updates to such sites. The inclusion of any third-party link does not in any way imply or express affiliation, endorsement, or sponsorship by Coda of any linked site and/or any of its content therein.

10.2. Notices

We may make any notices that we may be required by law to make in electronic format. You consent to receive communications from us in electronic form and agree that all terms and conditions, notices, rules, disclosures, policies, and other communications from Coda provided electronically to you shall be deemed to satisfy any legal requirement relating to communications in writing and shall be deemed to be given on the date of the electronic communication.

10.3. No waiver

Coda’s failure or delay in enforcing any right or provision under these CGS Terms shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of its right to subsequently enforce these CGS Terms and compel strict compliance therewith.

10.4. Termination

Coda may, at its sole discretion, terminate your access to the CGS App if you breach any of the Terms. In the event of termination, Section 8.1 (Limitation of liability) shall survive.

10.5. Security

Coda takes all reasonable steps to preserve the security of the information that you provide to it. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Whilst Coda strives to protect all data transmissions over the Internet (including your information) and has adopted substantial measures to mitigate security risks, Coda does not warrant and cannot ensure the absolute security of any information which you transmit to Coda. As such, any information which you transmit to Coda is transmitted at your own risk.

Nothing in these CGS Terms is intended to or creates any type of joint venture, employee-employer, creditor-debtor, escrow, partnership, or any fiduciary relationship between you and Coda.

10.7. Assignment

You may not assign any of your rights or obligations under these CGS Terms, or any part of it, to any other party without our prior written approval. Any attempt by you to do so without our prior written approval shall be deemed null and void.

10.8. Localised terms

These CGS Terms were prepared in English. To the extent that any translated localised version of these CGS Terms conflict with the English version, the terms of the English version prevail.

These CGS Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Coda, and supersede and cancel all prior and contemporaneous agreements, claims, representations, and understandings relating to the subject matter of these CGS Terms. No modification or amendment of these CGS Terms will be binding on Coda unless agreed to by Coda, set forth in writing, and published in the same manner as previously binding versions.

10.10. Separability

If any of the provisions of these CGS Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.

10.11. Governing law

These CGS Terms shall be governed by and construed according to the laws of Singapore without regard to its conflicts-of-law provisions. We shall endeavour to amicably resolve any disputes that arise out of or in connection with these CGS Terms (including any question regarding their existence, validity or termination), but in the event that such efforts shall fail, such dispute shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the SIAC (“SIAC Rules”) for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section on Governing Law. The seat of arbitration shall be Singapore, and the Tribunal shall consist of one (1) arbitrator. All arbitration proceedings shall be in the English language.
