TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE, OUR PARENT, EACH OF OUR AFFILIATES, AND ALL SUCH PARTIES’ DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, LICENSEES AND LICENSORS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “SportsEngine Play PARTIES”) DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT, OR LIABILITY FOR FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DELETION, DEFECT, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMMUNICATION-LINE FAILURE, NETWORK OR SYSTEM OUTAGE.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY DAMAGES YOU INCUR ARISING OUT OF THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF THE SportsEngine Play PARTIES OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES ARE NOT IRREPARABLE AND ARE INSUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF RESTRICTING THE AVAILABILITY OF OR ANY PERSON’S ABILITY TO ACCESS ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICES OR THE DISPLAY, PERFORMANCE OR DISTRIBUTION OF THE CONTENT.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the SportsEngine Play Parties from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, suits or proceedings, as well as any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and costs) arising out of or related to (i) any breach of this Agreement; (ii) User-Generated Content; and/or (iii) your use of the Services or any use of your account via the Services.
If you have a Dispute (as defined below) with us that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court, 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 Services, or engaging in any other SportsEngine Play Transactions or Relationships with us, you agree as follows:
“Dispute” means any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against us, and any claim that we may have against you, whether based on past, present, or future events, arising out of or related in any way to this Agreement or regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the Services, (ii) any purchases or other transactions or relationships related to your use of the Services, or (iii) any data or information you provide to us or we gather in connection with such use, interaction or transaction (collectively, "SportsEngine Play Transactions or Relationships").
Many Disputes can be resolved by an informal dialogue with our customer service staff. If you have a Dispute with us, before initiating an arbitration, you must send an individualized, written notice describing the Dispute to the customer support contact via email or contact form associated with the Service to which your Dispute relates. Without limiting any of our rights in 7, before we initiate any arbitration, we will send you a written notice using contact information we have for you. Promptly following receipt of such notice, you and we will try to resolve the Dispute by individual telephone or videoconference, or in person if you and we agree. If the Dispute is not resolved within 14 days of starting this dialogue, then either you or we may initiate an action in a small claims court that has jurisdiction over the Dispute and is reasonably close to your place of residence or work, or initiate an arbitration as described below if the Dispute is ineligible to be adjudicated in small claims court.
Any Dispute that we are unable to resolve through the informal procedure described above and is ineligible for small claims court shall be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration ("Arbitration"). The Arbitrator may issue orders to protect the confidentiality of proprietary information, trade secrets or other sensitive information. Except as discussed below, the Arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator administered by JAMS or its successor ("JAMS") and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures (or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $250,000, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures) in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated (respectively, the "Applicable Rules"). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. This Section 11 shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies (that is, a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction) from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
Mass Arbitrations. For any matter that involves twenty (20) or more arbitration claims that (1) involve the same or similar parties; (2) are based on the same or similar claims which arise from the same or substantially identical transactions, incidents, or events requiring the determination of the same or substantially identical questions of law or fact; and (3) involve the same or coordinated counsel for the parties, Arbitration will be conducted by ADR Services, Inc. (“ADR Services”) (https://www.adrservices.com/). The rules of ADR Services will govern all aspects of the arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with this Agreement. The ADR Services fee schedule that governs “Mass Consumer Non-Employment” matters will apply, or a different apportionment of fees if agreed to by ADR Services, SportsEngine Play and you, subject to the “Arbitration Costs” clause below. If SportsEngine Play is the party initiating an arbitration against you, SportsEngine PlayRapid Replay will pay all costs associated with the arbitration, including the entire filing fee.
No Class Relief. The Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis. Except as stated above in the “Mass Arbitrations” clause regarding mass arbitrations, the Arbitrator shall have no authority to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or any applicable arbitration rules, disputes regarding the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this class waiver may be resolved only by a court and not by an arbitrator. If this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration.
Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement. The Arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement and/or these arbitration provisions in this Section 11, including any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable, except as expressly provided above in the “No Clause Relief” clause.
Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined under the Applicable Rules that is reasonably convenient for you and is no more than 100 miles from your home or place of business; or (ii) at another location you and we agree upon. If the only claims asserted in the Arbitration are for less than $25,000 in aggregate, the Arbitration may be held by telephone, video conference, or written submission.
Arbitration Costs. If the Arbitrator finds that the costs and fees of Arbitration will be prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing, arbitrator, and hearing fees in 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.
Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. Except for the “No Class Relief” clause above, if any provision of this Agreement is unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. But if the “No Class Relief” clause is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then this entire arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor we will be entitled to arbitrate any dispute between us and you, and must instead bring any claims subject to the “Dispute Resolution Only if a Tribunal Has Ruled Arbitration is Prohibited” clause below.
Opt Out. You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you do so, neither you nor SportsEngine Play can force the other to arbitrate. To opt out, you must notify SportsEngine Play within 30 days of first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement by visiting nbcuniversal.com/terms/opt-out-form and following the instructions provided. Your notice must include your name and address and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.
Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice. This version, and any modification of these arbitration provisions shall apply for claims made on or after the effective date of this version (or such modifications) even if the SportsEngine Play Transactions or Relationship giving rise to such claims occurred prior to this version (or such modification). If any modification is deemed to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then the arbitration provisions effective at the time of your agreement to this Agreement shall govern any dispute or disagreement between you and us regarding SportsEngine Play Transactions or Relationships.
Dispute Resolution Only If A Tribunal Has Ruled That Arbitration Is Prohibited. If a court with appropriate jurisdiction prohibits arbitration of a dispute in accordance with this Section 11, then the state or federal courts in New York shall have exclusive jurisdiction over the dispute, and to the maximum extent permitted by the mandatory laws in your country of residence, this Agreement and any dispute arising out of or related in any way to this Agreement or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes), will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York and the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.
Applicable Law. This Agreement, any Supplemental Terms, and the relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of the U.S. and the State of New York without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Except as provided in applicable Supplemental Terms, you agree that the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to your use of the Services or this Agreement. You are responsible for complying with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You specifically agree to comply with all applicable laws concerning the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.
Venue. Subject to the arbitration provisions above, and other than small claims actions permitted there, any action or proceeding arising from, relating to or in connection with this Agreement will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in New York County, New York, and you irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and agree that it is a convenient forum and that you will not seek to transfer such action or proceeding to any other forum or jurisdiction, under the doctrine of forum non conveniens or otherwise.

By using any of our SportsEngine Play Subscription Services that we may offer currently or in the future, including but not limited to SportsEngine Play Pro, you agree to the terms and conditions in this Agreement and these Supplemental Terms.
Account. You must have a valid SportsEngine Play account to purchase a SportsEngine Play Subscription Service membership (“Membership”).
Charges & Fees.
(a) Subscription Period. Your Membership will provide you access to all of the content and benefits relating to the level of subscription you select for the period provided during sign-up (“Subscription Period).
(b) Payment and Fees. You will be billed upfront for the cost of the full Subscription Period, in addition to any applicable taxes, transaction fees and other charges and fees incurred in order to access your Membership. You must have Internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”) for payment. If there is a problem charging your default payment method, we may charge any other valid payment method associated with your account. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. When you provide payment information, you represent and warrant that the information is accurate and that you are authorized to use the payment method provided. If you do not pay any fees when due, (i) you remain liable for the fees as well as any costs we incur in collecting the fees, including attorney and collections fees, (ii) you authorize us to continue charging your chosen payment method and (iii) we may suspend or terminate your access to the SportsEngine Play Services.
(c) Price Increases. We reserve the right to increase charges and fees, or to institute new charges or fees at any time, upon reasonable advance notice and communicated to you through a posting on the SportsEngine Play Services or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time (including email). Such price increase will be applied on a prospective basis and you will be notified about the increase.
Automatic Renewal. If you sign up for a Membership, you agree that your subscription will be automatically renewed for another Subscription Period of equal length (for example, monthly or annually) at the then-current price for such Membership and, except as otherwise stated in the applicable Supplemental Terms, unless you cancel your subscription, you authorize us to charge your payment method for the next subscription period. If you terminate a Membership, you may be responsible for the full amount of the subscription fees for the subscription period in which your termination was effective.
Cancellation & Refunds. If you purchase a subscription to one of the SportsEngine Play Subscription Services, you have the right to cancel your contract and receive a full refund of the subscription fee for those SportsEngine Play Subscription Services provided that you cancel those SportsEngine Play Subscription Services within fourteen (14) days of the day we accept your order, or until you start downloading or streaming any Content under the subscription, if earlier. For annual subscriptions, if we receive your notice of cancellation within thirty (30) days after the first day of your initial billing, you will receive a refund of the subscription fee. If we refund your subscription fee, you will still be required to pay any other charges incurred. You may cancel your Membership at any time via the methods outlined below. We reserve the right to collect fees, surcharges, or costs incurred before your cancellation takes effect. You can cancel your subscription via the following methods: (1) by contacting customer service via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or (2) by such other means as we may provide from time to time. We will attempt to process all cancellation requests within 72 hours after we receive your request. You may also visit your Account page to cancel your subscription. If you cancel near the end of your billing period and are inadvertently charged for the next period's fee, contact customer service to have the charges reversed.
Trial Periods We may provide a limited free trial period (“Trial Period”) to certain users regarding certain SportsEngine Play Subscription Services. We are not required to offer Trial Periods and we determine your eligibility for a Trial Period in our sole discretion. Trial Periods may be subject to Supplemental Terms. If we provide you with a Trial Period, then you must provide valid payment method information in order to use the applicable SportsEngine Play Subscription Services during the Trial Period.

If you exceed this limit, we may charge your chosen payment method for any Trial Period after the first or suspend your use of the SportsEngine Play Subscription Services, in our sole discretion.
