- Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
6.1 Our Site will guide you through the process of:
6.1.1 submitting a Free Listing; and
6.1.2 purchasing a Paid Listing.

We will not be responsible for any delay in the completion of the transaction or in the appearance of your Paid Listing on Our Site that results from you providing incorrect or incomplete information.
6.4 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order to submit a Listing or purchase a Paid Listing constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your order does not mean that We have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Us (i) publishing the Listing for Free Listings; or (ii) sending you a Listing Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you a Listing Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.

6.5.1 Confirmation of the Paid Listing purchased including full details of the main characteristics of Our services and the details included in your Paid Listing;
6.5.2 Fully itemised pricing for your Paid Listing including, where appropriate, taxes, and other additional charges; and

8.5 To support Our business, we run third-party advertising on the Site, which will appear alongside Free Listings. Where you have a Paid Listing, we agree that We will block competing third-party advertising on Your Listing page however, Our Site partners may still appear on Your page Listing, but these will not be competing esports bars or venues but will consist of (but are not limited to) technology companies and beverages.
8.6 In some limited circumstances, We may need to suspend the availability of Listings for reasons including, but not limited to, fixing technical problems on Our Site. If your Paid Listing is suspended for such reasons, We will inform you in advance of the suspension whenever possible, explaining why it is necessary.
