We do not perform any background checks or other inquiries with respect to Members.

You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Salotto Members or Users, both in person and through the Website or associated Salotto applications.

Salotto is privately owned and hosted in the United States.

These General Terms and Conditions (the “Agreement”) sets forth the legally binding terms for your use of Salotto. By using Salotto, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether you are a “Visitor” (which means that you simply browse the Website or use the App without becoming a Member) or you are a “Member” (which means that you have registered with Salotto). The term “User” refers to a Visitor or a Member. You are authorized to use Salotto only if you agree to abide by all applicable laws and to this Agreement.

We also offer a Salotto Pro Account for a recurring monthly charge of $9.99 per month. The Salotto Pro Account will offer enhancements and features that the Salotto Free Account does not offer, including the ability to host an unlimited number of billiards events per month, as more fully described on the Website and the App. If You choose to enroll in the Salotto Pro Account, You may at any time cancel these optional features, Your account will be restored to the Salotto Free Account, and no future charges will be incurred.

You must have a valid credit card or use an electronic payment method with a third-party that from whom Salotto accepts payments (e.g., PayPal) in order to sign up for a Salotto Pro Account and participate in hosting games.
Prize Pools and Entry Fees: Members (each a “Host”) may host or arrange for billiards games or events and offer other Members the chance to participate. Those Hosts may set the terms of their own events, including the type of billiards game, any special rules or formats, entry fee (if any), prize pool and distribution (if any), total number of entrants, and any other conditions or limitations.
If You sign up for a billiards game or event that has an entry fee, You must pay your entry fee through the third party payment process chosen by host. If the game or event does not occur (e.g., cancelled due to weather, not enough entrants, etc.), then our third-party payment processor will refund your entry fee. Otherwise, prizes will be awarded to qualifying participants by the third-party payment processor as directed by the particular Host.
Interactions with Other Members: You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Salotto Members or Users, both in person and through the Website or associated Salotto applications.
We do not perform any background checks or other inquiries with respect to Members; rather, Salotto’s function is to allow interaction between Members who have identified themselves as being billiards players. Accordingly, You must exercise your own judgment in determining whether, when, where and how you meet with other Salotto Members to play billiards. By using Salotto, you agree that we are not responsible for any loss or damage, including personal injury or death, resulting from use of Salotto, attendance at any billiards event, from any Content posted on or through Salotto, or from the conduct of any Members or Users of Salotto, whether online or offline.
Each Salotto Member will have an opportunity to provide feedback relating to his or her interactions with other Salotto Members on a scale of 1 to 5. Each Salotto Member will have a reputation score reflecting how others have ranked that Member based on quality of experience. You may find these rankings useful in determining whether to participate in a particular Host’s game or event, but we do not independently audit these rankings, and they should not be viewed as our endorsement or evaluation of any particular Member.
Please be respectful of all parties and players involved with your experience. Practice quality sportsmanship and work to resolve your own issues calmly if they should arise.
In the unlikely event of a dispute related to a game or event hosted by a Solotto Member, please report this through the Contact section on salotto.app.
