This Terms of Service (the “Terms”) describes the rights and responsibilities that apply to your use of Iceberg’s websites and services (collectively, the “Service”), each owned and operated by Blaze Studios Inc. (“Iceberg”, “we”, “our” or “us”).
If you create an account on the Service (your “Account”), you are responsible for maintaining the security of your Account and its Content (as defined below), and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account and any other actions taken on the Service. You must not describe or assign Content to your Account in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and Iceberg may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause Iceberg liability. You must immediately notify Iceberg of any unauthorized uses of your Account or any other breaches of security. Iceberg will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Use of any of the Services is subject to the following rules. You agree that, in addition to abiding by our Community Guidelines, you will not do any of the following:
If you operate an Account, post material to the Service, post links on the Service, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Service (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, a website address, graphics, audio, video, or other files. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
Iceberg reserves the right to refuse or remove any Content or terminate or deny access to your use of the Service for any reason whatsoever. Please read the Community Guidelines for rules and advice on what types of Content and uses of the Service are appropriate at Iceberg.
All Content uploaded are copyright © their respective owners.
If you delete Content, Iceberg will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Service, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.
Iceberg collects payments from entrants which are remitted to Event Managers hosting Events on the Iceberg platform.
Entrants pay Iceberg to create an order, using Iceberg's checkout process. Iceberg partners with payment processors ("Payment Services Providers") for purposes of collecting all payments from Entrants, and transferring such payments from Entrants to Event Managers with an Event hosted on the platform. All payments services in connection with the collection of funds on the Iceberg platform are performed by Iceberg’s Payment Services Providers.
Iceberg serves as Event Managers’ limited authorized payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting payments (via its Payment Services Provider, if applicable) from Entrants, and remitting those payments to Event Managers. Entrant’s payment obligation to Event Managers will be satisfied upon receipt of payment by Iceberg (or its Payment Services Provider, as applicable), and Iceberg (via its Payment Service Provider, as applicable) is responsible for remitting the funds to the Event Manager in the manner described in these Terms of Service. In the event that Iceberg (via Payment Services Provider) does not remit any such amounts to Event Manager, Event Managers will have recourse only against Iceberg and not the Entrant directly.
For offline invoices, the Entrant is responsible for ensuring payment is received directly by the Event Manager before offline invoicing deadlines for payment have expired. If an offline invoicing deadline has not been explicitly stated, it will be the date the call for entry period expires. Entries associated with orders which have not been paid by the deadline may not be included in the Event.
By using any payment method and/or providing payment details for making purchases on Iceberg, you represent and warrant that: (a) you are legally authorized to provide such information; (b) you are legally authorized or have permission to make payments using the payment method(s); (c) if you are an employee or agent of a company or person that owns the payment method, you are authorized by that company or person to use the payment method to make payments on the Service; and (d) such actions do not violate any applicable law.
Contesting charges will result in the account and organization associated with it being permanently banned from Iceberg.
Entrants may make payments on the Service in several different currencies. Unless stated otherwise, you will be charged in the currency displayed on the payment page. All currency exchange services in connection with payments and withdrawals in local currencies are performed by Iceberg’s Payment Services Providers.
Entrants may be charged with indirect taxes (such as Sales Tax, VAT or GST) depending on their residency, location and any applicable law, in addition to the price shown on the site, and, in any event, any such taxes will always be displayed to the Entrant before payment.
Entrants agree that they are responsible to comply with all tax requirements applicable to them, including but not limited to any obligation to deduct or withhold taxes. It is hereby clarified that all prices and fees that appear on the Service are the net amounts that will be paid following any direct or indirect taxes, levy, withholding tax and/or deductions.
Iceberg does not automatically refund payments made for cancelled orders back to your payment provider. Refunds may be requested before an Events call for entry period has elapsed. Refunds that are the result of a request from the Entrant and not the result of an Iceberg platform technical error, may be subject to an additional fee. Refunds for cancelled orders may be processed by the Event Manager, if the Event's balance has been remitted.
You acknowledge that the score listed on the Iceberg website accurately reflects your submitted score, and that it is your sole responsibility to make any changes to your score, and scores may not be changed after a scoring round has expired. You agree not to hold Iceberg responsible for any disruptions in the Service in unavailability.
Judges and moderators are not entitled to confidentiality. Evaluation data, including participation and scores may be shared with Event Managers.
Iceberg can collect taxes on behalf of Event Managers for Events hosted on the Iceberg platform. Event Managers take full responsibility for all taxes and fees of any nature associated with the Service, including any sales tax related to any purchase or sale of services or goods under the Terms. When using the Service, it is your responsibility to determine whether or not sales taxes apply to a transaction and to collect, report and remit the correct amounts to the appropriate authority.
Taxes collected on behalf of Event Managers on the Iceberg platform are not excluded from transaction fees.
If offline invoicing has been enabled for an event, the Event Manager is solely responsible for collecting entry fees associated with offline invoicing orders.
You take full responsibility for all taxes and fees of any nature associated with the Service, including any sales tax related to any purchase or sale of services or goods under the Terms. When purchasing or selling services or goods under the Terms, it is your responsibility to determine whether or not sales taxes apply to a transaction and to collect, report and remit the correct amounts to the appropriate authority.
Event Managers are responsible for any balance adjustments and transaction fees and penalities associated with chargebacks received after receiving their remittance. If arrangements are not made to reimburse Iceberg for chargebacks, Iceberg may:
Entrants and organizations associated with contested charges or chargebacks may be banned from the Service permenantly or until the balance of the chargeback and any transaction fees and penalties is paid in full.
Iceberg may charge any of the types of fees listed below, based on an Event Managers agreement to use the Service:
The balance of fees collected on behalf of Event Managers for an Event hosted on the platform, minus fees and any applicable credits ("Remittance") will be paid to Event Managers within 30 days of the final entry payment. Remittance will be made in a single lump sum transfer, either as a cheque or direct bank-to-bank transfer.
Remittance is calculated using total sales and taxes collected by the Service on behalf of the Event Manager for the Event, after deducting any applicable Setup Fees, Entry Fees, Transaction Processing Fees, Supplemental Service Fees, and any outstanding balance attributed to the Event Manager from a previous Event held with the Service, and any taxes Iceberg is obligated to charge for use of the Service.

Iceberg’s total aggregate liability from any and all claims under the Terms is limited to the total amounts you paid to Iceberg in the one (1) year immediately preceding the occurrence of loss or damage.

You agree that if Iceberg does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Iceberg has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Iceberg's rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Iceberg.
The Terms are the entire agreement between us related to the subject matter in the Terms. The Terms replace and supersede any other prior or contemporaneous agreement, representation or discussion, oral or written, and may not be changed except in writing signed by us, regardless of whether or not the parties act under an unsigned “electronic” agreement or rely on such an unsigned agreement.
