SportsHub Technologies LLC. d/b/a (NFBC, NFFC, NFBKC) operates National Fantasy Championships for Baseball, Football, and Basketball.
The service is provided as an interactive online service (the "Service") on the World Wide Web of the Internet, and it is hosted at the following web addresses: nfbc.sportshubtech.com, nffc.sportshubtech.com, and nfbkc.sportshubtech.com. As with any online service, we must establish some basic rules designed to insure enjoyment by all of our Users (as defined below).
General Terms For Use Of The Service:
The Service offers Users (as hereinafter defined) access to (i) information, software and content owned or licensed by the Company and some third-parties ("Content Providers"), and (ii) merchandise and services offered by the Company and independent merchants ("Merchants"). "User" means any person who establishes an authorized account ("Account") for access to and use of the Service. The right to use the Service is personal to the User and a User's Account is not transferable. A User must be an individual who is of legal age (usually eighteen (18) years of age or older, although the laws of some jurisdictions may require Users to be older than eighteen (18)) and may not be a firm, business entity or institution. A User may permit use of the Service by other individuals in User's household, but the User remains solely responsible for all charges, if any, incurred by such individuals. By registering as a User and using the Service and any Company website, you accept and agree to comply with this Agreement, as modified from time-to-time, as well as all rules or policies posted in connection with products, including contests, offered by the Company ("Rules"), for as long as you remain a User. Except as expressly permitted in this Agreement or in applicable Rules, no portion of any information, content or software which is accessed by using the Service or accessing any Company website, other than information, content and software necessary for the operation of the User's Account (which shall be used solely in connection with User's Account) may be downloaded, copied, reproduced, redistributed, retransmitted, published, resold or otherwise commercially exploited by any User.
Price, Payment & Eligibility:
The Company offers various fantasy sports contests and related products and services. Users must provide the Company with valid credit card information at the time of purchase. All fees will be charged at the standard fees in effect for the products and/or services being purchased by the User. The Company will not automatically renew any purchases. The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the eligibility of each User who purchases products and/or services from the Company.
The Company reserves the right, at any time, to (i) change the terms of this Agreement and/or any Rules, (ii) change the Service, including eliminating or discontinuing any content or feature of the Service, changing the terms of eligibility, restricting the hours of availability, or limiting the amount of use permitted by the User, or (iii) change any fees or charges for use of the Service, including instituting new or increased fees or charges for the use of the Service or any features, contests, products or services offered through use of the Service. Users will be given prior notice (via either postings on the Company's website or emails to Users) before any increase in existing fees or charges will become effective. All other changes shall be effective immediately unless otherwise stated. Any use of the Service under a User's Account after notice of changes in fees and/or charges shall be deemed to constitute acceptance by the User of the changes in those fees and/or charges.
User Account Responsibility And Fees:
The User is responsible for insuring that all use of the Service under the User's Account (i.e., use of the Service by any person using the User's ID and password) complies with the provisions of this Agreement and all applicable Rules. The User is responsible for protecting and maintaining the confidentiality of his or her password. If the User believes that his or her User Account is no longer secure (e.g., in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of User's password), User must promptly change his or her password and notify the Company (as set forth in the Notices section below) to avoid liability for any unauthorized charges to User's Account. The User is responsible for paying all fees and charges (plus applicable taxes) associated with the use of the Service under the User's Account, including payment of fees or charges incurred for premium features or options and payment for purchases made through the Service. Unless otherwise stated, (i) payment of all fees and charges must be made by a valid, approved credit, debit or charge card, and (ii) all fees and charges (including, without limitation, entry, registration, and transaction fees) are non-refundable. The User may, upon request (by electronic message or conventional mail), receive supporting information relating to fees and charges to the User's Account. Orders for purchases of products or services advertised on the Service by the Company, sponsors, advertisers, Merchants or by other third parties are subject to availability and acceptance. The Company is not responsible for delivery, warranties, guarantees or other matters concerning purchases from third parties. Access to and use of premium features or options of the Service is subject to posted terms and conditions (including payment of applicable fees and charges). Unauthorized access to the Service or any premium feature or option is a breach of this Agreement and a violation of law. The User is solely responsible for and must provide all telephone and other equipment and services (including Internet access provider fees) required for access to and use of the Service.
The User is responsible for, and assumes all liability associated with, any material, information and/or disclosures made by User via the Service under the User's Account, including liability for claims of infringement, libel and slander. The User shall not post, transmit through, or otherwise make available via the Service (i) any material which violates or infringes in any way upon the rights of others, which is unlawful, defamatory, obscene, abusive, profane, vulgar, sexually explicit, racist, threatening, hateful or otherwise objectionable or which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any law, (ii) without the express written consent of the owner thereof, any copyrighted material, or (iii) without the express prior written consent of the Company, any advertising or any solicitation with respect to products or services. Although Company does not and cannot review every message posted by Users on the Service, Company shall be under no obligation to permit any material posted or transmitted by the User to remain on the Service, and may refuse to display or remove from the Service any material or information from Users which Company, in the exercise of its sole discretion, believes violates this Agreement or any Rules. Material (defined as messages, stories, articles, or website addresses) authored by User or authorized by User ("User Material") that is posted, transmitted through or otherwise made available on the Service by the User in public posting areas (such as feedback, chat rooms or forums) shall be considered to be in the public domain and may be copied, published, distributed or otherwise used by Company (or another User) for any purpose without the permission of the User. User acknowledges that any User Material posted, transmitted through or otherwise made available on the Service may be edited, removed, modified, published, transmitted and displayed by Company, and User waives all moral rights in such User Material.
