Noncompliance may result in disqualification from the Contest(s) or forfeiture of Prize(s), at Sponsors’ sole discretion. If a potential Winner cannot be reached, is found to be ineligible, cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if Prize (as defined below) or prize notification is unclaimed or returned as undeliverable, including, but not limited to, if the Winner fails to withdraw their Prize within a reasonable time as determined by Sponsors but in no event later than twelve (12) months from the date of last activity on the Platform, such potential Winner may be disqualified from the Contest(s) and/or have Prize(s) forfeited.

Contest results and Winner determination are based on the outcome, statistics, gameplay, and/or results of the Game(s) as of the time when final scoring is tabulated by Sponsors. Contest results will not be changed in light of official adjustments made by the professional leagues, though Sponsors reserve the right to make adjustments based on errors or irregularities in its calculation of results or in the transmission of information to Sponsors from third parties. Sponsors, in their sole discretion, also may make adjustments in the event of noncompliance with these Official Rules. Sponsors have no obligation to delay the awarding of any Prize(s) in anticipation of any adjustment, and Sponsors reserve the right to reverse the awarding of Prize(s) in the event of any adjustment. Entrants agree to be bound by any such adjustments and to cooperate with Sponsors’ reasonable efforts to award Prize(s). Decisions of Sponsors are final and binding with respect to all matters related to each Contest in the Platform.

To the extent that the Platform offers or displays scoring, standings, results, statistics, or other information relating to any Contest (“Live Information”), all such Live Information is unofficial and is offered for informational and/or entertainment purposes only.

PRIZES: Prizes (“Prizes”) may awarded to Winner(s) based on the scoring results of select Contests. Prizes may vary by Contest. Prize information for each Contest will appear on the Contest’s Information Pages.

Entrants may only win one (1) Prize in each Contest, unless otherwise specified in a Contest’s Information Pages. Prior to awarding any Prize, Sponsors may conduct checks for compliance with these Official Rules, eligibility and identity verification, evidence of fraud or other prohibited conduct (as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion). In the event that an entrant accumulates prizing with an Actual Retail Value (“ARV”) of six hundred dollars ($600) or more in a single calendar year, Sponsors will furnish an Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 to such entrant for the ARV of Prize(s) for the year in which Prize(s) was won.

Prizes won in Contests may be viewed on your “My Account” page. Winners may request withdrawal of Prizes via verified PayPal account and/or mailed check. If you do not already have a PayPal account, you can go to http://www.paypal.com to create a free PayPal account. Winners’ first and last name needs to be an exact match to their PayPal account information and their PayPal account needs to be verified. Sponsors may also request additional information, including without limitation, Eligibility Information and Contest Documents, before a withdrawal request may be processed. In certain instances, such as those involving larger or non-monetary Prizes, Prizes may be distributed in an alternative manner at Sponsors’ sole discretion.

All details of Prize(s) will be determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion and are subject to change.  Sponsors reserve the right to substitute Prize(s) (or portion thereof) with a similar prize (or prize element) of comparable or greater value. All taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of Prize(s) are the sole responsibility of Winner(s). Prize(s) cannot be transferred by Winner(s) and is valid only for the items awarded, with no substitution of Prize(s) by Winner(s). Sponsors shall have no responsibility or liability for cancellations, delays, or any other change by any company or person providing any element of Prize(s), and are not responsible or liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence thereof.

Except as set forth in any Official Rules, digital items (including credits, points, and/or virtual currency or any virtual items made available on the online services) have no monetary value (i.e., are not a cash account or equivalent), and are of only a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable right to use, even if such came with a durational term.

Except as set forth in any Official Rules, we do not recognize the transfer of digital items or credits (including for “real” money or any other consideration or items of value whether inside or outside of the online services). Accordingly, you may not purchase, sell, barter, or trade any digital items or credits, or offer to purchase, sell, or trade any digital items or credits. Any such attempted transfer will be null and void.

Except as set forth in any Official Rules, you have no property, proprietary, intellectual property, ownership, or monetary interest in your digital items or credits, which remain our Content. We may also immediately suspended or terminate the rights we grant you to digital items or credits for any or no reason, in our sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability. We may modify digital items or credits at our sole discretion, and such modifications may make the digital items or credits more or less common, valuable, effective, or functional.

Except as set forth in any Official Rules, if we suspend or terminate any digital items or credits, then you will forfeit the suspended or terminated items. Likewise, except as may be set forth in any additional terms or as required by applicable law, we are not responsible for repairing or replacing the same, or providing you any credit or refund or any other sum, in the event of our modification of any digital items or credits, or for loss or damage due to error, or any other reason.

  1. Wireless and Location-Based Features; Social Media Plug-ins

Wireless Features. Our Services may offer certain features and services that are available to you via your wireless Device. These features and services may include the ability to access our Services’ features and upload content to our Services, receive messages from our Services, and download applications to your wireless Device (collectively, “Wireless Features”). Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Wireless Features and certain Wireless Features may be incompatible with your carrier or wireless Device. In addition, your carrier may charge you for standard messaging, data, and other fees to participate in Wireless Features. Fees and charges may appear on your wireless bill or be deducted from your pre-paid balance. We have no responsibility or liability for any fees or charges you incur when using Wireless Features. You should check with your carrier to find out whether any fees or charges will apply, what plans are available and how much they cost. You should also contact your carrier with any other questions regarding these issues.

Terms of Wireless Features. If you register for any Wireless Features then you agree that, in connection with those Wireless Features, we may send communications to your wireless Device regarding us or other parties. Further, we may collect information related to your use of the Wireless Features in accordance with our Privacy Policy. If you have registered via our Services for Wireless Features, then you agree to notify NBC Sports of any changes to your wireless contact information (including phone number) and update your accounts on our Services to reflect any changes.

Location-Based Features. For Services on mobile Devices (“Mobile Apps”) when you use one of our location-enabled Services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. Some of the Mobile Apps or Services require your location information for the feature to work. If you have enabled GPS, geo-location or other location-based features on a Device, you acknowledge that your Device location will be tracked and may be shared with others consistent with the Privacy Policy.

In addition, where any Mobile App collects precise information about the location of your Devices, it will be used to provide requested location services, and, depending on the particular Mobile App, it may be used, amongst other uses, to allow tagging or to check-in.

Some Mobile App(s) or feature(s) allow for you to disable location-based features or manage preferences related to them. However, you can terminate Device location tracking by us by uninstalling any Mobile App(s) or feature(s). The location-based services offered in connection with our Mobile App(s) or feature(s) are for individual use only and should not be used or relied on as an emergency locator system, used while driving or operating vehicles, or used in connection with any hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, or any other situation in which the failure or inaccuracy of use of the location-based services could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or property damage. The location-based services are not suited or intended for family finding purposes, fleet tracking, or any other type of business or enterprise use.

Please see our Privacy Policy to find out more about how to opt out of providing location information or contact privacy@nbcuni.com.

Social Media Plug-Ins. Social media plug-ins of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus (among others) may be integrated on our Services. Where our Services contain a plug-in to a social network, these are clearly marked (e.g. with a Facebook button). If you choose to click on one of these buttons or links, your browser connects directly to the servers of the relevant social network. The social network directly transmits the content of the plugin to your browser. If you are registered on the relevant social network and logged into your respective account the social network receives the information that the web page was used by you. If you interact with a social network plug-in (e.g., you press the Facebook “Like” feature, the Twitter “Tweet this” feature, Google Plus “1+” button, or equivalent) or drop a comment on the appropriate web page, the corresponding information is directly transmitted to the relevant social network from your browser. If you are not registered with the social network or you are logged out before you visit our Services, there is the possibility that at least your IP address will be submitted to and stored by the social network. If you interact with us through a social media platform, plug-in, etc., then you may be enabling us to have ongoing access to certain information from your social network profile (such as your name, social networking id page, e-mail address, photo, gender, location, the people/sites you follow, etc.).

If you don’t want a social network to collect the information about you described above, or to share it with us and other third parties, please review the privacy policy of the relevant social network and/or log out of the relevant social network before you visit our Services. As with other sites, you may be able to delete any existing cookies placed on your computer by the social network via your browser. See Section 1 of our main Privacy Policy  to find out more about how our Services contain plug-ins to social media networks.

  1. Local Regulations

Our content and other Services are not appropriate or intended to be available for use outside the U.S. If you choose to access our Services from other locations you do so in violation of these Terms of Use.

  1. Export Control

Unless otherwise specified, the materials on our Services are presented solely to provide information regarding and to promote NBC Sports’ services and other products available in the U.S. Our Services are controlled and operated by NBC Sports from its offices within the State of New York. NBC Sports makes no representation that materials on our Services are appropriate or available for use outside the U.S. Those who choose to access our Services from outside the U.S. do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. Software from our Services are further subject to U.S. export controls. No software may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported (A) into (or to a national or resident of) Cuba, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Iran, Syria, or any other country to which the U.S. has embargoed goods, or (B) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders.

  1. Binding Arbitration of All Disputes; No Class Relief

This Section 25 is deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and NBC Sports agree that we intend that this Section 25 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 25 can only be amended by mutual agreement. For non-U.S. residents, if binding arbitration is adjudged by a tribunal to be unenforceable, the provisions of Section 26 below shall apply to all relevant disputes between you and us.

We believe that arbitration is a faster, more convenient and less expensive way to resolve any disputes or disagreements that you may have with us. Therefore, pursuant to these Terms of Use, if you have any dispute or disagreement with us regarding (i) your use of or interaction with any of Services (including this Site), (ii) any purchases or other transactions or relationships with NBC Sports made through our Services, or (iii) any data or information you may provide to NBC Sports or that NBC Sports may gather in connection with such use, interaction or transaction conducted through our Services (collectively, “NBC Sports Transactions or Relationships”), you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the Site or our other Services, or engaging in any other NBC Sports Transactions or Relationships with us, you agree to binding arbitration as provided below.

We will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes, or disagreements that you may have with us. By using our Services, you agree that, if those efforts fail, any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against NBC Sports, and any claim that NBC Sports may have against you, arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, or any NBC Sports Transactions or Relationships, shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration (“Arbitration”) administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”) and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the “Applicable Rules”). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is no longer in existence, the Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (the “AAA”) instead, and conducted in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at that time (which shall be the “Applicable Rules” in such circumstances). If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness or successor or analogous policies in effect which would be applicable to the matter in dispute (“Minimum Standards”), NBC Sports agrees to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this Section 25, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the application of subpart (e) or (i) below. Furthermore, this Section 25 shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. You further agree that:

  1. Single Arbitrator. The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and NBC Sports (the “Arbitrator”);
  2. Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement. The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Use and/or the arbitration provisions in this Section 25, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Use is void or voidable;
  3. Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and NBC Sports; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
  4. Governing Law. The Arbitrator shall (i) apply internal laws of the State of New York consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with New York or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief;
  5. No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and/or NBC Sports’ individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated;
  6. Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets;
  7. Arbitration Costs. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, NBC Sports will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith;
  8. Reasonable Attorney’s Fees. In the event you recover an Award greater than NBC Sports’ last written settlement offer, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award NBC Sports’ reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees associated with the Arbitration, but NBC Sports shall in all events bear its own attorneys’ fees; and
  9. Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart E above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart E is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor NBC Sports shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.

Modification of Arbitration Clause with Notice. NBC Sports may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after NBC Sports has given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from NBC Sports Transactions and Relationships occurring after the effective date of such notification.

Small Claims Matters are Excluded; No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim you have against NBC Sports in your local small claims court within the U.S. if your claim is within such court’s jurisdictional limit; provided, that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.
