II. RESTRICTION OF USAGE AND PROHIBITED USAGES
pokerai websites are not for use by (i) individuals under 18 years of age, (ii) individuals under the legal age of majority in their jurisdiction and (iii) individuals connecting to the Site from jurisdictions from which it is illegal to do so. PokerAI is not able to verify the legality of the Service in each jurisdiction and it is the User's responsibility to verify such matter.
We define online bots (also aliased as "online pokerbots", "bots", "AI software" and others) as either:
a) software programs built to play online games (poker, chess, backgammon, etc.) or automatically trade on stock markets and exchanges
b) software programs that support (augment) your decision making in online games (poker, chess, backgammon) or stock markets and exchanges
In order to avoid misunderstandings, please stick to this definition when talking about bots in this forum.
You need to be well aware of your local laws regulating online gambling in your country. Online poker might be illegal on first place in your country. These laws may impose various restructions in the way you [can] play poker, what kind of support you use, and so on. For example, United States of America Nevada Gaming commission makes illegal the usage of any software in brick and mortar casinos, while software is prevalent and used by almost every player in online poker (just to understand how far rules can be from each other). Forum and blog discussions on any rules is OK, but PokerAI is not able to verify the legality of playing poker or developing Poker AI or using bots in each jurisdiction or in conjuction with any online game service provider and it is the User's responsibility to verify such matters.
PokerAI is not advising any user to break the Terms of Service of any website or service.
Note that these terms of services vary a lot: For example, bots are allowed on the largest venues where you can play other games of skills like chess, or forex trading, while the largest pokersites allows only limited support of bots, as well as that some of them define bots differently than we do. For example, there are gaming sites that do not forbid the usage of bots, some online gaming sites will allow usage of bots that automate your betting upon your request, some of them will allow bots that auto fold cards for you, all of them (that we know of) will allow you to use bots that aids decision making, but some of them will try to classify it in different ways. Further examples are that some sites will allow bots which sometimes are attempted to be defined as HUDs, or Heads up display software, while others don't, some will allow you to use realtime advisors, others don't, some will allow you to use third party services (like tableratings), or datamining, others won't.
We will not tolerate any activities (in particular forum discussions) that are illegal under our local jurisdiction (copyright infridgements, hacking, and so on). We will not tolerate discussion on any topic that we consider cheating in business-agnostic point of view, that is tools and techniques that provide one with unfair advantage from game theory point of view (For example collusion in poker).
Please e-mail us at email@example.com with any complains about violation of third party terms of services and we will support you in removing the violations that were reported.
Without prejudice to any other rights, if a User breaches in whole or in part any provision contained herein, we reserves the right to take such action as it sees fit, including terminating this Agreement, immediately blocking access to the Service to such User and/or taking legal action against such User.
You agree to fully indemnify, defend and hold harmless pokerai.org and its shareholders, directors and employees from and against all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including legal fees and any other charges whatsoever, howsoever caused, that may arise as a result of:
a) your breach of this Agreement, in whole or in part;
b) violation by you of any law or any third party rights; and
c) use by you of the Service or use by any other person accessing the Service using your pokerai.org login credentials, whether or not with your authorization.

or representations with respect thereto. This Agreement is made under and shall be construed according to the laws of Federal Republic of Germany.
