Users must enter the amount to transfer and the Stars ID of the intended recipient. Users are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure they know who the other Users are before entering into these arrangements. Limits on transfers will be set by The Stars Group per User.

As part of The Stars Group's licensing agreement and in compliance with anti-money laundering legislation, Users need to be aware they may be required to produce personal documentation (such as Government issued ID, bank statements and utility bills) upon request in order for their transfer to be processed.

In addition, The Stars Group reserves the right to consider any collusion or attempt at collusion between players (including Users) as a material breach of this Agreement and accordingly The Stars Group shall have the right to terminate a User's account if a User engages or attempts to engage in any such activity, regardless of the outcome of such attempt.
5.5 EXTERNAL PLAYER ASSISTANCE TOOLS. The Stars Group prohibits external player assistance tools ("EPA Tools") that are designed to provide an "unfair advantage" to players. The Stars Group defines "EPA Tools" as computer software (other than the Software), and non-software-based systems (e.g. web sites, subscription services and physical materials). The Stars Group takes a broad view of what constitutes an "unfair advantage" in the context of any use of EPA Tools. For the avoidance of doubt, what is prohibited encompasses but is not limited to accessing or compiling information on other players beyond that which the User has personally observed through the User's own game play or receiving advice, direction or assistance on how to play, in real time, that goes beyond a basic level.

In the event that The Stars Group deems that a User has engaged or attempted to engage in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity while using the Service, including without limitation, engaging in any of the activities set forth in this clause 5 or any other game manipulation, or the making of any fraudulent payment, including without limitation, use of a stolen credit card or fraudulent chargeback or money laundering, The Stars Group shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including, but not limited to:

5.10 CURRENCY EXCHANGE. Users are able to effect currency exchange transactions via the Service on their PC or Device with funds standing to the credit of such User's account (the "Currency Exchange Facility"). All currency exchange transactions on the Currency Exchange Facility will take place at the current prevailing rate offered by The Stars Group for the transaction type in question. The exchange rates will be updated on a regular basis, and it is possible that different rates may be offered depending on the type of transaction and movement in currency value. Users should ensure they are aware of fluctuations in the exchange rate and the impact this may have on their available funds before using the Currency Exchange Facility. The Stars Group will not be held responsible for gains and losses incurred by Users that utilise the Currency Exchange Facility. Users should also be aware that The Stars Group applies a margin on currency exchanges effected via the Currency Exchange Facility which it may, at its discretion, waive for some types of transaction. A margin may, for instance, be applied to currency exchanges in connection with deposits or withdrawals, intra-account transfers or auto-conversion in situations where the currency exchanged is different from the currency used in the Games. The Stars Group may also, at its discretion, revoke or withdraw support for any particular currency without notice.

The User agrees to and accepts the terms and conditions relating to real money transaction processing and currency exchange.
5.11 NO ARBITRAGE. Users are strictly prohibited from utilising the Site and its systems to facilitate arbitrage through currency exchange transactions. Where The Stars Group deems that a User has deliberately used the aforementioned systems for financial gain through arbitrage, any gains will be forfeited and deducted from the balance standing to the credit of such User's account without warning or notification.
5.12 The Stars Group prohibits persons located in (including temporary visitors) or residents of certain jurisdictions (including jurisdictions where persons are required to play according to the regulations in such jurisdiction, using the appropriately designated, licensed game client) from making deposits into their User accounts or engage in Games (the "Prohibited Jurisdictions"). They may cash out their existing account balances. For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing restrictions on engaging in real-money play from Prohibited Jurisdictions apply equally to residents and citizens of other nations while located in a Prohibited Jurisdiction.

Any attempt to circumvent the restrictions on play by any persons located in a Prohibited Jurisdiction, is a breach of this Agreement. An attempt at circumvention includes, but is not limited to, manipulating the information used by The Stars Group to identify your location and providing The Stars Group with false or misleading information regarding your location or place of residence. Any such attempt will entitle us to take such steps as we deem appropriate including, without limitation, seizing the funds in your User account.
