THE FOLLOWING ARE IMPORTANT TERMS AND CONDITIONS (the “TERMS”) OF USE OF THE MOBILE SOFTWARE APPLICATION AND WEBSITES (the “SITES”) PROVIDED BY VETNOS LLC. (“VETNOS”, “WE”, “US” OR “PROVIDER”) (collectively, the “SERVICE”). PLEASE READ ALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY AS THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS.
Vetnos is a Delaware corporation located at 880 3rd Ave. 6th Floor, New York, NY 10022. Vetnos is the owner and operator of the Service. Vetnos has created a branded version of the Service under license from Sqorr. (“Sqorr”), the Sqorr game. The following Terms constitute a legally binding agreement and will govern the use of the Service as they dictate what you can expect from Us and what is expected from you as the user of the Service (“you,” “your,” or “User”). Your use of the Service is subject to the following Terms set forth below.
The Sqorr games presented in the Service by Vetnos are all games of skill. Offered online and on mobile devices, the games allow Users to create a user account (the “User Account”) and to play skill based games by correctly selecting at least 4 (to 10) winning head-to-head match-ups of professional athletes, with the winning athletes earning the higher Fantasy Point Score. A User has the ability to select all the head-to-head match-ups and to use their skill to make the selection. Fantasy Points are earned or accumulated as a result of the performance of these multiple selected athlete match-ups. A win for the User occurs by using their skills and research to correctly pick all of winning athletes they have selected. All winning outcomes reflect the relative knowledge and skill of the User and are determined predominantly by accumulated statistical results of the performance of individuals (athletes in the case of sports events) in multiple real world sporting or other events. No winning outcome is based: (a) on the score, point spread, or any performance or performances of any single real-world team or any combination of such teams; or (b) solely on any single performance of an individual athlete in any real world sporting or other events.
The Sqorr games offered through the Service are for multiple, professional sporting events and take place during a single day or week.
Before using this Service, please insure that you have read all Terms carefully so that you understand what is expected of you through your use of the Service.

At its sole discretion, Vetnos reserves the right to amend, alter or replace any of the Terms at and time, which shall become effective immediately.
