WAGERING ACCOUNT PROCEDURES

You may access your account and place wagers through our website at usracing.com, or through our mobile site, mobile.usracing.com, using tablets or mobile devices.
For your protection and privacy, a wagering account can only be accessed by the registered account holder with a valid account number and Personal Identification Number (PIN).
For your benefit, wagers placed through US RACING wagering systems are sent into combined (commingled) pools at the host racetrack and are subject to all host racetrack rules and restrictions. From time to time US RACING may operate separate wagering pools from the host racetrack when pools cannot be commingled. Separate pools will be subject to rules and regulations of the applicable jurisdictional authority.

All wagers are considered final when a confirmation is received from our totalizator service provider and your wager is commingled with the host pool. If for some reason we are unable to commingle your wager with the host pool, your wager will be refunded to your account.

We reserve the right to refuse any wagering transaction for any reason.

Proceeds from successful wagers will be deposited into your account as soon as each race is posted official and winning payouts are available from the host racetrack.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to terminate an account at any time and for any reason. In the event an account is terminated, we shall return to you the balance of any funds in your account at the time of termination. If the balance of funds in your account at the time of termination is less than $2.00, we will retain the balance as an account termination fee. If your account is inactive for 6 consecutive months, a $1.75 per month account maintenance fee may be assessed until the balance reaches zero and the account is terminated.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refer any dishonored financial instruments to collection agencies, check registries and credit reporting agencies and to collect any fees or charges incurred due to dishonored financial instruments and expenses, incurred as a result of our collection efforts, from the responsible accountholder.

You authorize us to obtain, at our discretion, credit bureau reports in connection with your request for an account. If an account is opened, we may obtain, at our discretion, credit bureau reports in connection with the review of your account.

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

You have chosen to do business with us, and we recognize our obligation to keep the information you provide to us secure and confidential. In our continuous effort to provide services that we believe you may find useful or of value, we may make your records available to better facilitate your requests, provide more personalized services and communicate separately with you.

Employees who violate our privacy policy will be subject to our disciplinary process.

RETENTION

The information that you have provided us is maintained in our management information system and billing systems, and is updated as new information is added. Accounting and billing records are retained for ten years for tax and accounting purposes or until the relevant income tax years for which the document was created have been closed for income tax purposes and/or all appeals have been exhausted. Records may remain on file even after you have terminated service. Subject to applicable law, we may also keep records to facilitate collection and to evaluate credit worthiness.
