- Select a "Self exclusion period" (ranging from 6 months to 5 years)
- Tick the box next to "I understand consequences of self-exclusion"
- Click on the "Exclude me from gambling at Picklive" button
- We will action your request as soon as we are able to and within 48 hours.
We will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure compliance with self exclusion. However you accept that we have no responsibility or liability whatsoever if you continue gambling and/or seek to use the Website and we fail to recognise or determine that you have requested self exclusion in circumstances which are beyond our reasonable control. For example including but not limited to you opening a new account or using a different name or address.
- In requesting self-exclusion you agree to provide full and accurate personal details, now and in the future, so as to allow access/use of Picklive’s betting and gaming services to be restricted. If you do choose to self-exclude we will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure we comply with your self-exclusion. However in agreeing to self-exclude you accept that you have a parallel undertaking not to seek to circumvent the self-exclusion. Accordingly, Picklive has no responsibility or liability for any subsequent consequences or losses howsoever caused that you may suffer or incur if you commence or continue gambling through additional online accounts where you have changed any of the registration details or you provide misleading, inaccurate or incomplete details or otherwise seek to circumvent the self-exclusion agreed.

Suspension and closure of account
- We may refuse to permit you to sign up with Picklive or elect to deregister or suspend you from Picklive at any time and for any reason whatever including (without limitation) if we suspect that you are breaching any of these Terms and Conditions or if we suspect that you are acting in a manner that is detrimental to the conduct of our business or which may result in a legal liability for you, for Picklive or for third parties. Any deregistration or suspension from Picklive may include the withholding of payment of any winnings due to such account. We shall not be obliged to give you prior notice of our action nor to furnish you with any reasons. Any breach by you of the Game Rules shall also be a breach of these Terms and Conditions.
- If we suspend you from Picklive we shall have the right to solely determine what criteria you shall have to meet in order to sign up again at Picklive.
- Picklive reserves the right at any time and for any reason to:
- temporarily or permanently suspend your access to the message boards and chat room;
- delete any of your content;
- require any of your future messages or content to be pre-vetted;
- take any other action against your account as it sees fit.
- You may close your Picklive account at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will consider your account to be dormant if you have not transacted on it for a continuous period of 365 days.
- Whilst an account is considered dormant, we may levy a monthly administrative fee of £10, to be deducted from the account on the date that it becomes dormant and at the end of every complete calendar month thereafter.
- Should deductions of administrative fees from an dormant account mean that the account incurs a negative balance, then the balance of that dormant account shall be deemed to be zero.
Privacy and Data Protection
Complaints and Dispute Resolution
- For details of our complaints policy and dispute resolution see the Complaints page.
- It shall be a condition of your agreement with us that any complaints and disputes are and remain confidential both whilst we seek a resolution and afterwards. You agree that you shall not disclose the existence, nature or detail of any complaints and disputes to any third party (which shall include the discussion of any such any complaints and disputes in any chat room or forum offered by ourselves or any third party).
Data Tracking System
- The data for Picklive is provided by Opta. Picklive then allocates points based on this data as the action unfolds. Both Opta and our points allocation system are accurate however it is possible that mistakes occur which may then mean that the points are not awarded correctly.
- We are normally able to correct mistakes within a short period of time and this may then lead to the points you have been awarded being changed, during the course of a Game. No changes to the points awarded will be made after a Game has finished, even if a correction has been made. However, that is all part of the fun of playing Picklive and is the same for everyone. The results of each Game of Picklive will be based on the points awarded during that Game and will not be altered once the game has finished.
- As with any data feed, there will always be a very short delay between a real-life event and that event showing up in our data feed. We are not aware of any faster data sources but others playing Picklive may have more up-to-date information (for example if they are in the stadium where the match is taking place) or have access to some media source that we are not aware of.
How Results are Determined
- Picklive results will be based solely on the data provided by Opta which tracks Match events and Player performance. Picklive will seek to ensure that all results of Picklive games are as accurate and correct as possible but the results are dependent upon the veracity and accuracy of the information provided by Opta which is subject to human error and may not be 100% accurate.
- It is your responsibility to keep abreast of team changes and adjust your choice of Players accordingly.
Ahead of each Match, Picklive will display 'Predicted Lineups'. These are a prediction as to which players will make the Starting XIs for each team before the Starting XIs have been announced. If you pick your 5 players while Picklive is displaying ‘Predicted Lineups' and one or more of your players does not play they will automatically be replaced by a player from the same team in the starting XI that has the highest average Picklive score from their previous 3 matches. If none of the players have appeared on Picklive before, an automatic replacement will be selected at random.
- As soon as Picklive receives Starting XIs from Opta these replace the Predicted Lineups and the words 'Predicted Lineups' disappear from the picking screen. Once this has happened backups are not necessary and will not be displayed.
In the event that you pick a player that is substituted during the match, you will automatically get the incoming player and a Pickers score for this player will be a combination of the original pick and the substitutes scores.
- Picklive is not obliged to refund any monies staked based on representations, publications, updates or statements that Picklive has made with regard to the Predicted Lineups, Actual Lineups, Starting XIs, substitutions, player names and/or player numbers. We encourage you to do your own research and check back right up until start of the Match and during the Match to ensure that your choices are based on the official Starting XIs, Player names and Player numbers.
Disclaimer on points calculation
- The calculation of points for scoring Games is based on the information received from Opta. All Pickers signing up to and playing Picklive recognise that the data feed may be inaccurate and subject to human error, which may in turn affect the outcome of any Game. By signing up to the site all Pickers accept that it is possible for the scoring on Picklive to be inaccurate. Points will be allocated and Games decided on the information provided by Opta at the end of each Game, and no alterations will be made to the points allocated or pay outs awarded if the information from the data feed is subsequently corrected or altered.
- The data feed used in Games and therefore the scoring for the Games may vary significantly from scoring or information about the same Match on other media sources or outlets or betting sites.
- In some circumstances where there has been an error made in the scoring of a Game, and that error has come to Picklive’s attention, the scoring will be corrected during the course of the Game. However, if the Game has already finished then no corrections or amendments will be made to the scoring or points allocated during that Game.
- For more information regarding the scoring and points allocation see the Game Rules.
- We reserve the right to amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time and any such amendments shall be effective on posting on the Website. We will take appropriate steps to bring any significant changes to your attention (such as by placing a notice of change on a prominent position on the Website). Please check these Terms and Conditions regularly to see if there have been any changes.
- If any part of these Terms and Conditions is deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that part shall be deemed to be severable from the rest of these Terms and Conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
- No indulgence granted by us to you should be construed as a waiver of any of our rights under these Terms and Conditions.
- Unless otherwise expressly stated, nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall create or confer any rights on any persons not party to these Terms and Conditions.
- We reserve the right to transfer, assign, sub-license or pledge, in whole or in part, any of the rights and obligations granted to or imposed upon us by these Terms and Conditions. You may not transfer, assign, sub-license or pledge any of the rights and obligations granted to or imposed upon you by these Terms and Conditions.
- Unless the context otherwise indicates, these Terms and Conditions set out the entire agreement between us and supersede all prior oral or written agreements, arrangements or understandings between us. You acknowledge that you are not relying on any representation, agreement, term or condition that is not set out in these Terms and Conditions.
- In these Terms and Conditions the headings are used for convenience only and shall not affect its interpretation.
