- The Administrator shall not be liable if due to incorrect money transfer data entry, any payment made by a User is not validated to the accounts of the Administrator and consequently the User account of this person is not credited with the appropriate amount of chips. Due to the fact that payments are made through third-party payment systems, which are outside the control of the Administrator, it is possible that there is a period of time from the moment of payment by the User until the receipt of the corresponding amount by the Administrator respectively the subsequent credit of the User account with the respective amount of chips, the duration of which can not be foreseen.
