RakeBrain Terms Of Use


  1. General

    Please read the Terms of Use set forth herein carefully. The services provided by [www.rakebrain.com] (the “Site” or “we”) to you are subject to the Terms of Use. The use of the Site by you implies your agreement to be bound by the Terms of Use. If you do not agree with the Terms of Use and do not wish to be bound by them, you should leave the Site immediately.

  2. Our Services and the Use of the Site by you

    The Site does not provide online poker gambling and is not a poker room operator. We only advertise poker rooms and provide rakeback offers for each poker room listed on our Site. The rakeback offers are determined by the poker rooms with whom we work. Poker rooms usually change their rakeback rates, promotions, rules and regulations regularly, with or without a prior notice. We therefore recommend that you carefully check the rules and the terms and conditions on the poker room’s web site before you start playing on that site.

    We cannot be held liable and are not responsible for any losses incurred by you as a result of playing at the poker rooms whom we work with, for any announced or unannounced reduction of the rakeback rate or for any winnings, rakeback monies, pay outs, bonuses, etcetera, owed to you by a poker room but not paid to you by such poker room.

    We recommend that you check with the current laws whether the use of our services and/or playing at the poker rooms listed on our Site is legal according to the laws that apply in your jurisdiction.  You must be of legal age to play online poker and pay applicable taxes in your country. It is your own responsibility to know and observe the laws applicable to you when you are playing at a poker room. Any use of the services on our Site or of the services provided by the poker rooms displayed on our Site is at your sole discretion, option and risk.

  3. Rakeback, Calculation and Payment

    The rate of the rakeback we offer you are based on the commission deals we get from the poker rooms we work with. In case a poker room reduces the rakeback commission, which is not in our control, we will reduce the rate of the rakeback by the same proportion. It is your own responsibility to check the rakeback offers and the bonus offers of the various poker rooms to see if they have changed.

    The rules of the poker rooms determine the calculation of all rakeback and bonus payments. We base the amount of the rakeback to be paid to you on the statistics provided by the poker rooms. It is your own responsibility to check with the poker room you play in how the rake and rakeback is calculated.

    We cannot be held liable or responsible for any claim that you allegedly have not been paid the correct amount of rakeback. Furthermore we cannot be held liable or responsible for any errors made by the poker rooms regarding your account registration, the rakeback calculation or the amount of deposits made by you. Payments of the rakeback can be made to you either directly by the poker room or by us according to the rakeback payout schedule for each poker room. Payments made by us are made within 7 working days once we have received the rakeback commission from the poker room. In no event can we be held liable or responsible for late rakeback payments.  The rakeback payout schedule information is found on each individual poker room page on the Site.

    In the event a poker room terminates the affiliate agreement with our Site we are not to be held responsible for the consequences.

    As a member of the Site you accept that your rake and other poker room data such as poker room username, points, raked hands etc. will be provided to us by the poker rooms we are affiliated with. You also accept that we might occasionally publically show this data in promotion leader boards and results. We will never share any other personal data specific to your account to a third party.
