SCN Services require access to the Internet, typically through a cellular data network or a local Wi-Fi network. The quality of your Services may vary depending on the strength and consistency of your wireless connection. If your bowling center has Wi-Fi, we recommend that you connect to it since it can be challenging to get a good cellular signal within metal-framed buildings such as bowling centers. In any case, we are not responsible for the quality of your Internet access, and we make no representations or warranties about the quality of your experience on your device. Further, a poor Internet connection may result in a poor experience, and it is solely your responsibility to establish a quality Internet connection. The time it takes to launch the Site or Application, or to update screens within the Site or Application will vary based on a number of factors, including your location, available bandwidth at the time, and the configuration of your device. The availability of Services will change from time to time. The quality of the display of bowling scores, challenges, and other Site and Application functions may vary from device to device, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your Internet connection. Availability is subject to your Internet service and device capabilities. You are responsible for all Internet access charges. Please check with your Internet or cellular provider for information on possible Internet data usage charges.

The Site and Application may also contain links to, or incorporate or utilize, other websites, services, advertisements, promotions, information, materials or social media tools, SNS owned or maintained by third parties (collectively, "Third Party Services"). The Third Party Services are not under the control of SCN, and SCN is not responsible for the contents of any Third Party Service, including without limitation any link contained in a Third Party Service, or any changes or updates to a Third Party Service.

We may terminate any Third Party Service's ability to interact with the Site or the Services at any time, with or without notice, and in our sole discretion, with no liability to you or to the third party. Any Third Party Service may take actions to impact our ability to make available some or all of the features of the Site or the Services at any time, with or without notice, and we will not be liable to you or to the third party for any such actions.
As a convenience to our users, SCN provides or may provide, at its sole discretion and via the Site or the Application, one or more chat areas, message boards, e-mail functions, messaging services, file communities, virtual communities featuring digital or Virtual Items, polls, surveys, user to user games, challenges, tournaments or matches (each, a “Challenge”), and other services (collectively, the "Social Features"). Social Features are provided by SCN to you and other users of the Site and the Application, subject to these Terms. SCN has no control over any user-generated content, information, and materials of any kind or nature posted in or submitted to the Social Features sections of the Site or Application (collectively, “User Content”), and the user posting or submitting such User Content is responsible for the reliability, accuracy and truthfulness of such User Content. You acknowledge that the User Content may contain material or information that you or other users find offensive, distasteful or otherwise unacceptable, and you hereby release SCN from any responsibility for such material. SCN does not and cannot review every message posted by users on the Site or the Application, and is not responsible for the content of these messages or the views or opinions expressed by its users. We reserve the right to, but are not obligated to, delete, move or edit User Content, in whole or in part, submitted by users to us for any reason. We do not assume any obligation to monitor the Social Features or remove any specific material.
You are entirely responsible and liable for all activities conducted by you or any person accessing the Site or Application via your account within the Social Features, including the transmission, posting, or other provision of User Content to any portion of the Social Features. Your use of the Social Features is subject to all of the terms and conditions of these Terms, including the restrictions set forth above under “Use of Site and Application.” In addition to such restrictions, you agree not to do any of the following actions while using any of the Social Features:
Any violation of these Terms may result in SCN terminating or suspending your access to Social Features on a temporary or permanent basis, as determined by SCN in its sole discretion.
Information disclosed in Social Features is, by design, disclosed to the public via the Site and the Services. We are not responsible for any information you choose to disclose to others via the Social Features. We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to remove any posts for any reason. Without in any way limiting the generality of the “Submissions” paragraph, above, by posting or uploading User Content to any Social Feature or submitting any other User Content to SCN, you automatically grant (or warrant that the owner of such rights has expressly granted) SCN a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, sub-license, create derivative works from and distribute such materials or incorporate such User Content into any form, medium, or technology now known or hereafter devised throughout the universe in perpetuity. In addition, you warrant that the content as uploaded or posted by you does not violate any person's so-called "moral rights" or other similar or analogous rights under any applicable laws in any country or region of the world.
You understand that the uploading to or posting of any User Content in any Social Feature is not subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of SCN, and SCN shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any User Content. Without limitation of the foregoing, SCN shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing rights to the User Content of every kind and nature, in perpetuity, throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the User Content in any and all media, now known or hereafter devised, throughout the universe, in perpetuity for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation or credit to the provider, author or owner of the User Content.
From time to time, we may offer users the opportunity to create or acquire digital or virtual items or assets (collectively, "Virtual Items"). Such opportunities are considered Social Features, but such Virtual Items also involve additional considerations. In particular: (1) you agree and acknowledge that (i) you are granted a limited, non-exclusive license to use the Virtual Items in connection with, and solely as a part of, your use of the Site and Application and then only for the duration permitted by us; (ii) you shall have no ownership or property right, title, or interest in or expectation of the Virtual Items; and (iii) any use of the Virtual Items other than as permitted by these Terms will constitute a violation of these Terms and may constitute copyright infringement; (2) any modifications, combinations, alterations or other changes that you make to any Virtual Items ("Alterations") shall be deemed to be for the benefit of SCN, and you hereby grant, transfer, sell and assign all right, title and interest to SCN any and all rights, title or interest in and to such Alterations and all proceeds derived from the Alterations or in connection with such Alterations, with the right to make such changes therein and such uses and disposition thereof, in whole or in part, as SCN may from time to time determine as the author and owner thereof, together with all neighboring, rental, lending, fixation, reproduction, distribution and any and all other ownership and exploitation rights now or hereafter recognized in any territory, by any and all means, media, devices, processes and technology, and all rights generally known as the "moral rights of authors”; and (3) Virtual Items have no cash value and may not be redeemed for cash and may not be sold, auctioned, bartered, brokered, purchased outside of the Site or the Application or used to engage in any gambling activity. Any Virtual Items obtained in this manner by any person or entity will be considered to have been fraudulently obtained and deemed void. For all other purposes of these Terms, Alterations shall be considered User Content.
By registering for an account, you agree that SCN may display your username throughout the Site, including, but not limited to, areas such as leader boards, individual tournament records, message boards, chat rooms, and other similar Social Features. By accepting any prize from the Site, you agree to allow SCN to print, publish, broadcast and use, and to authorize its affiliates and distributors to print, publish, broadcast and use, on a worldwide basis, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, your name, picture, voice, likeness, statements, biographical information, a description of the prize(s) you won and any other personal characteristics for any purpose, including without limitation, promotional or related purposes without additional compensation, and you release SCN from any liability with respect thereto.
The Application and Site provide users the opportunity to participate in Challenges and other contests and promotions. While you may participate in certain Challenges for free, most Challenges require that you purchase “Credits” in order to participate, as noted on the ”Select Challenges” and related screens available via the Application. A list of Challenges, their Credit requirements, and potential points won in such Challenges can also be found in XBowling Challenge Rules by clicking here. Credits may be purchased via the payment method(s) you have on file with the Apple App Store or Google Play, as applicable.
By participating in Challenges, you have the opportunity to earn points. We offer two types of points – (1) “Game Points”, which are points earned in the course of a single game and (2) “SCN Reward Points”, which are points that may be used as virtual currency to redeem merchandise or other rewards that we make available to you in the “SCN Rewards Store” which may be accessed via the Application (for users of Apple devices only) or the Site (for users of Apple and Android devices). Except as otherwise described below, all Game Points (also shown in the App as users’ cumulative “All Time Points”), turn into “SCN Reward Points” on a 1:1 basis. While the SCN Reward Point balance declines with each use/redemption of these points in the SCN Reward Store, the value of All Time Points, which is the cumulative value of all Game Points earned by a user, is not affected by such declining balance of SCN Reward Points.
For some Challenges, you may earn Game Points for simply participating; for others, you must achieve specific goals to earn points (such as, but not limited to, knocking down certain pins, achieving a certain score, or winning a game). The criteria for earning Game Points in a particular Challenge are listed on the “Select Challenges” and related screens for that Challenge available via the Application. A list of Challenges and their rules for earning Game Points can also be found in XBowling Challenge Rules by clicking here. You may view the merchandise and rewards available in our SCN Rewards Store at any given time within the Application or Site; we may vary the contents of the SCN Rewards Store at any time, without notice to you. Your ability to earn Game Points is dependent on a number of factors, including, without limitation, the Challenge(s) you select or enter, your skill in achieving the required criteria to earn Game Points for a particular Challenge, and the skill of other players or users that may be participating in a Challenge. We may also offer Game Points or Credits to users who participate in various Social Features, such as inviting a friend to register for an account with us, or as special promotions or loyalty rewards for achieving certain levels of play or achievement.
Credits and points are not transferable between accounts, are not for resale and have no cash value. All Credit purchases and SCN Reward Point redemptions are non-refundable. SCN Reward Points may only be redeemed for items available in the SCN Rewards Store. Users may only maintain Credits and SCN Reward Points in one XBOWLING account. We may adjust Credit and SCN Reward Point balances to correct computing errors, and we may suspend or terminate your access to purchased Credits, earned points and redeemed offers if you violate these Terms. We reserve the right to modify or eliminate SCN Reward Points and our SCN Rewards Store feature at any time by posting a notice on this Site or via email to our users.
Although we take reasonable care to ensure that the goods and services offered in our SCN Rewards Store are accurately described and available, the actual availability may vary as a result of factors beyond our control. If a specific good or service so listed is not available, we may substitute a comparable reward of equal or greater value, or ask you to select a different reward. Merchandise, reward or prize availability may vary, and redemption requests are satisfied on a first-come, first served basis, whereby the requests of our users are attended to in the order that they arrived, without other biases or preferences. In order to receive any physical or tangible merchandise or prize, you must provide us (or our third-party redemption services vendor) a full physical address (not PO Box) so we may send you your merchandise or reward. Once you have provided a physical address to us, that same physical address may not be associated with any other account or email address; if more than one account exists for the same shipping address, we may suspend or terminate all associated accounts. Approval and shipping timeframes may vary based on availability, your location and other factors. We reserve the right to ship items at any time after approval. We are not responsible for lost merchandise or prizes due to, but not limited to, incorrect shipping addresses or faults on behalf of intermediary shipping companies. Merchandise or prizes may not be returned or exchanged. All redemption requests are routed to our third party redemption services vendor and are processed in as timely a manner as possible. All open redemption requests with available rewards will be completed and shipped (either from our home office or from our vendor’s facilities, depending on the requested merchandise or reward) within 15 days.
From time to time, we may offer gift cards as prizes in our SCN Rewards Store. Such gift cards can be used to purchase the merchandise described at a third-party vendor. In these cases, the value of the gift card is equal to or greater than the cost of purchasing the listed good or service (excluding any shipping, handling, or applicable taxes) from the designated vendor as of the time you claim your reward. We are not responsible for subsequent price increases by the vendor for that good or service. Also, certain gift cards or other rewards may expire within a certain stated period; please make sure to review the terms of any reward carefully before you redeem your Points for that reward. Expired rewards or gift cards will not be replaced or refunded. Unless otherwise stated, the vendors have no affiliation with SCN and are not authorized to act or make representations on behalf of SCN. You may be required to register or create an account with the vendor in order to redeem your card and collect your reward, and you are subject to the vendor's applicable policies, including expiration dates or inactivity charges for their cards. You are solely responsible for any shipping, handling, taxes or other incidental charges as required by the vendor. Note, in particular, that many vendors charge sales tax when gift cards are redeemed, based on your place of residence. You are responsible for any and all taxes associated with your redemption of Points for merchandise or other rewards or with your receipt of any merchandise or other rewards available in connection with the Application, any Challenge or other contests or promotions.
We plan to open our SCN Rewards Store to users from outside of the US in the future, subject to regulatory and logistics availability. At this point, all Game Points earned in bowling centers located outside of the US will not be converted into SCN Reward Points. We will update the status of availability of this feature for international players from time to time.
Note that you must be 18 years or older to redeem points or claim rewards. If we attempt to verify your identity, eligibility, or age, but are unable to do so, we may in our sole discretion withhold your reward or merchandise.
ALL CHALLENGES AND THEIR ASSOCIATED POINT REDEMPTION FEATURES ARE VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED. Game Points earned by users at bowling centers located in the following states will not be turned into SCN Reward Points: Alaska, Hawaii, Vermont, Montana, South Carolina, New Jersey, Tennessee, Washington, South Dakota, and New Hampshire. If you are such a user, you agree and acknowledge that the sole benefit you receive from your purchase of Credits is your opportunity to participate in the Challenges and associated Social Features you select. Residents of Arizona and Louisiana will have certain restrictions on either one or both the amount of Credits that may be used to participate in a Challenge and/or the value of the prize that may be redeemed from earned SCN Reward Points. Click here to see more details on these restrictions. We may lift these restrictions on one or more of these states without notice, at which point the accumulated Game Points (All Time Points) of these players earned in any such states would be converted into SCR Reward Points.
Please note that certain contests or promotions offered via the Site or the Application (including, without limitation, certain Challenges) may be governed by a separate set of rules that, in addition to describing such contest or promotion (including, without limitation, certain Challenges), may have eligibility requirements, such as certain age or geographic area restrictions, terms and conditions governing the use of material you submit, and disclosures about how your personal information may be used. All of such rules will be posted on the Site as and when available. It is your responsibility to read such rules to determine whether or not you want to and are eligible to participate, register and/or enter. By entering any such contest or other promotion (including, without limitation, certain Challenges), you agree to comply with abide by such rules and the decisions of the sponsor(s) identified therein, which shall be final and binding in all respects.

ELIGIBILITY. You must be at least 18 years of age to use your User Account to participate in Contests or win prizes offered by the Services. In jurisdictions, territories, and locations where the minimum age to participate in a PEC is greater than 18 years old, you must meet the age requirement in your local jurisdiction or territory. Legal residents of Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, and, Michigan (the "Excluded States") are ineligible to participate in PECs awarding prizes.
CONTEST OF SKILL. Contests offered on the Service are contests of skill. Winners are determined by the objective criteria stated in each Contest’s deadline, rules, scoring and any other applicable documentation associated with the Contest. For each Contest, rules and criteria will be clearly displayed in the Contest lobby. These rules and criteria include but are not limited to:
Winners are determined based on the participants’ use of skill in the game of bowling to accumulate the highest game and/or series scores or other such forms of competition that may use a bowler’s scores (i.e., brackets).
RULES AND CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION. By entering a Contest, entrants agree to be bound by these Terms and the decisions of SCN, which shall be final and binding in all respects. SCN, at its sole discretion, may disqualify any entrant from a Contest, refuse to award benefits or prizes and require the return of any prizes, if the entrant engages in conduct SCN deems to be improper, unfair or otherwise adverse to the operation of the Contest or is in any way detrimental to other entrants. Improper conduct includes, but is not limited to:
The Contest prizes and maximum number of participants for each Contest are pre-determined by SCN in its sole discretion. Prize amounts do not include amounts collected as entry fees and do not vary based on the actual or registered number of entrants into the Contest.
