9. Piracy Protection

In order to prevent fraud and piracy, which is very common in the online poker industry, The Mechanics of Poker have set up a piracy protection plan. We have multiple ways of protecting our contents, both passive and active. An example of passive protection is adding an unique User ID code, and other User credentials, to a specially designed watermarking system when streaming our video contents. The active ways of protection our content, those related to the User's behavior, are listed below.

9.1 - For all of our products and services, only one person per User account is allowed to make use of the provided content. Consequently, multi-accounting (more persons that make use of one and the same account) is not allowed. If we detect such possible fraud, The Mechanics of Poker will send a warning to (and possibly suspend) the relevant User account. In case we conclude the account as fraud, we will terminate the account according Clause 11, effective immediately. Misuse of an account will be detected by us at the soonest occasion, as we frequently check and analyse our User Data based on multiple variables (for example IP address information). By default we have disabled multiple login sessions at the same time for all accounts.
9.2 - To make sure that our content stays with us, and your investment is protected and not leaked, we have a simple verification process for our high-end products and services. Via this way we ensure that the content remains exclusive, which will differentiate you from the rest. For this required account verification, you need to provide us information which is necessary to link your account to your identity. All information will be securely stored by us (see our Privacy Policy section ''Security''). More information on the account verification process is provided in the welcoming email that you will receive directly after your purchase. By providing us the required information you acknowledge that:
9.2.1 - All information you submit is accurate and truthful;
9.2.2 - You will use the provided content for your own use only; and
9.2.3 - In case we cannot verify your account, for any reason, your account will be permanently suspended and, depending on the situation, you will receive a refund for the investment made. In case of possible fraud detected we remain the right to terminate your account (Clause 11) and a refund will not apply. In the scenario that a refund is applicable, we are obliged to charge an administration fee plus all costs for local bank transfers, which in total is 5% of the purchase amount. Moreover, for our program ''The Mechanics of Poker'' we will deduct a total of 400 (four hundred) euros in return for the provided access to Modules 1 for the Technical Game and the Mindset & Performance section. For our Masterclass(es) we will deduct a total of 200 (two hundred) euros in return for the provided access to Module 1.
Both these costs (% and access) will be deducted from the original purchase amount. The remaining refund which will be transferred to you within five (5) working days from the moment that we concluded that the account could not be verified.
9.3 - In case of violation of our terms and conditions, in particular for a breach in our piracy protection precautions (Clause 9.1 and 9.2) the User receives a penalty of 50.000,00 (fifty thousand) euros, and we will report this to the local authorities as well as spread the word in the poker industry.
