Last Updated: May 15, 2018


Welcome! Thank you for visiting The Sports Fans Connection, a dba of The Connection Reward Inc. (“TCR”). The following are the terms of use ("Terms") that govern your use of the websites and applications where this appears (collectively, the "Site"). Our Privacy Policy and any other policies, rules or guidelines that may be applicable to particular offers or features on the Site are also incorporated into these Terms. By visiting or using the Site, you expressly agree to these Terms, as updated from time to time.

We may make changes to these Terms at any time. Any changes we make will be effective immediately when we post a revised version of these Terms on the Site. The "Last Updated" date above will tell you when these Terms were last revised. By continuing to use this Site after that date, you agree to the changes.

While some of the events listed on the Site may appeal to children, the Site is not targeted at children under the age of 13, and they are not permitted to use the Site. We strongly encourage all parents and guardians to monitor the Internet use by their children. If you use the Site, you affirm you are at least 13 years old. You must be at least 18 years old to sign up and become a subscriber to the Sports Fans Connection site.


Account Registration

You may browse the Site without registering for an account. You may be required to register for an account to use certain features of the Site. Your account username may not include the name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, or be offensive, vulgar or obscene. Your account username and password are personal to you. You will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your username and password, and for all activities (including purchases) that are conducted through your account. You may not transfer or sell access to your account. We will not be liable for any harm related to disclosure of your username or password or the use by anyone else of your username or password. You may not use another user's account without that user's permission. You will immediately notify us in writing if you discover any unauthorized use of your account or other account-related security breach.

You will have no ownership in your account or your username. We may refuse registration, cancel an account or deny access to the Site for any reason.


Fan Club Membership and Item Purchases

A fan club membership may be required to purchase certain products, services, or tickets offered via the Site (“Taxable Offering”). Your monthly membership subscription fee is separate from any other fees charged for tickets to attend TCR events or to purchase other goods or services. All fees are exclusive of applicable federal, state, local or other governmental taxes, fees or charges now in force or enacted in the future (“Taxes”). If you are resident in the U.S., Taxes may apply to your membership or purchase of some or all products and services, including without limitation, your membership to or purchase of products, services, or tickets. Any applicable Taxes are based on the rates applicable to the U.S billing address you provide to us, and will be calculated at the time of purchase. In addition to Taxes, some products or services may incur other fees or charges, all of which will be detailed prior to purchase. Such amounts are in addition to fees for the Taxable Offerings and will be billed to the credit card you use to pay for the Taxable Offerings.

You may join a fan club by submitting an application and paying the appropriate fees using a valid credit card. Unless otherwise stated, memberships are month-to-month and you agree to be billed for your membership on a monthly basis in accordance with our Automatic Payment Terms and Conditions.

Fan club membership requires authorization for recurring periodic billing. If a recurring payment is part of your membership subscription plan, you will be advised prior to making the purchase. For additional information, please review our Automatic Payment Terms and Conditions.

We may change the terms of membership, including the fees, and will communicate such changes prior to renewal. Each fan club is a separate membership and you may join as many fan clubs as you desire.

DEPENDING ON YOUR OFFER, YOUR MEMBERSHIP MAY HAVE AN INTRODUCTORY OFFER OR SPECIAL OFFER. AFTER THE INTRODUCTORY OFFER EXPIRES, YOUR MEMBERSHIP WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW AT THE APPLICABLE THEN-CURRENT PRICE DEPENDING ON YOUR SELECTION (E.G., ANNUAL, MONTHLY, MEMBERSHIP TIER/LEVEL, ETC.) UNTIL CANCELLED BY YOU. THE THEN-CURRENT RENEWAL PRICE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BUT WE WILL NOTIFY YOU IN ADVANCE. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST KEEP YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS UP TO DATE FOR PURPOSES OF RECEIVING SUBSCRIPTION NOTIFICATIONS AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR TO RIGHT TO RECEIVE SUCH NOTICES IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS. IF YOU WISH TO CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP, YOU MUST CALL (877) 286-0536.

We may offer certain products, services, tickets or ticket packages, including presale of products, services, or tickets, as a benefit to fan club members. Depending on the presale program, you may not have the same access to presale items as other members. Products, services, or tickets purchased on our Site are typically non-refundable and may have a processing fee. In many cases, delivery prices will also be owed. You may be limited to a specified number of items (also known as a “item limit”). This item limit is posted during the purchase process and is verified with every transaction. This policy is in effect to discourage unfair buying practices. We reserve the right to cancel any or all orders and tickets without notice to you if you exceed the posted limits. This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number or other information.

Orders are processed only after a billing address, and other billing information, has been verified. Occasionally, we receive incorrect billing or credit card account information for an order that can delay processing and delivery. In these cases, we will attempt to contact you, using the information provided at the time of purchase. If we are unable to reach you after our initial attempt, we may cancel your order and may sell your item(s) to another customer without further notice.

If you do not receive a confirmation number (in the form of a confirmation page or email) after submitting payment information, or if you experience an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is your responsibility to confirm whether or not your order has been placed. Only you may be aware of any problems that may occur during the purchase process. We will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive confirmation.

Different combinations of delivery methods may be offered, depending on factors that include the venue where the event is to be held, the location in which you live, how much time is left before the event starts, whether it is a holiday season and the nature of the demand for the event. Please carefully review the list of delivery methods offered during the purchase process. For security purposes, we can only ship purchases to the billing address on file with the credit card company that is used for your purchase.

Unfortunately, there are times when the athlete or celebrity, as well as others joining as part of the event, must cancel. All events are subject to change or cancellation at any time without notice. We will do our best to reschedule the event or refund your payment if the athlete or celebrity cancels. Prior to purchasing tickets to an event you will be provided with the refund and cancellation policy.

Before purchasing products, services, or tickets, carefully review all details related to your selection. We will not issue exchanges or refunds after an item or experience has been purchased or for lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed items.

Occasionally, events are canceled or postponed. Should this occur, we will attempt to contact you to inform you of refund or exchange procedures for that event. For exact instructions on any canceled or postponed event, please check the event information online or contact us. If the event was moved or rescheduled, we may be able to substitute tickets with comparable or better seating, if applicable, in our discretion. Please contact us for more information if you cannot attend the rescheduled event.

You agree that you will not attempt to evade, avoid, or circumvent any refund prohibitions in any manner with regard to items you purchased. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you will not contact us to seek a refund or exchange from us when we are prohibited from providing one, and you will not dispute or otherwise seek a “chargeback” from the company whose credit card you used to purchase the item(s) from the Site. Should you do so, your order may be canceled, including any event tickets, and we may, in our sole discretion, refuse to honor pending and future ticket purchases made from all credit card accounts or online accounts on which such chargebacks have been made, and may prohibit all persons in whose name the credit card accounts exist and any person who accesses any associated online account or credit card or who otherwise breaches this provision from using the Site.

If we are able to issue you a refund for a ticket due to a canceled or postponed event, we will issue a refund of the ticket’s face value paid (or, for a discounted ticket, then instead the discounted ticket price paid) and all service fees. In no event will delivery charges or any other amounts be refunded. If a refund is issued, it will be issued using the same method of payment that was used to purchase the tickets. We will not be liable for travel or any other expenses that you or anyone else incurs in connection with a canceled or postponed event.

If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on this Site or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or presale date or you are able to order a ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then we will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid. This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction.

Event providers reserve the right, without refund of any amount paid, to refuse admission to, or eject, any person whose conduct management deems disorderly, who uses vulgar or abusive language or who fails to comply with event provider rules. Breach of terms or rules will terminate your license to attend the event without refund. A ticket is a revocable license and admission may be refused upon refunding the ticket’s face amount. A ticket is not redeemable for cash.

You agree that the event for which you purchase tickets is a public event, that your appearance and actions inside and outside the venue where the event occurs are public in nature, and that you have no expectation of privacy with regard to your actions or conduct at the event. You grant permission to the event provider(s) to utilize your name, image, likeness, acts, poses, plays, appearance, movements, and statements in any live or recorded audio, video, or photographic display or other transmission, exhibition, publication or reproduction made of, or at, the event (regardless of whether before, during or after play or performance) or activity, FanFest or Athlete conference call for any purpose, in any manner, in any medium or context now known or hereafter developed, without further authorization from, or compensation to, you or anyone acting on your behalf. See our Purchase Policy for terms and conditions regarding event ticket purchases.

You and your belongings may be searched on entry to the event. You consent to such searches and waive any related claims that may arise. If you elect not to consent to such searches, you may be denied entry to the event without refund or other compensation. Under certain facility rules, certain items may not be brought into the premises, including without limitation, alcohol, drugs, controlled substances, cameras, recording devices, laser pointers, strobe lights, irritants (e.g., artificial noisemakers), bundles and containers.

Unlawful resale (or attempted resale), counterfeit or copy of tickets is grounds for seizure and cancellation without compensation. Certain maximum resale premiums and restrictions may apply in some states and we cannot be responsible for providing legal advice regarding resale or pricing of tickets. You are responsible for complying with all applicable ticket resale laws. In addition, we reserve the right to restrict or deny ticket purchasing privileges to anyone that we determine to be, or has been, in violation of our policies. Tickets may not be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, unless formal written authorization is given by us.

As a registered user of the Site, you agree to allow and permit TCR and/or the Athlete for whom you have purchased a fan club membership to send text messages via SMS, communicate via e-mail, or call you for purposes of the programs and offerings of this Site. Text or data messaging fees may apply. If you desire to opt-out of any forms of communication indicated in this paragraph, you may contact us at HELP@TheSportsFansConnection.com or (877) 286-0536 to update your preferences.


Cancellation and Termination Procedure

You may cancel your fan club membership at any time by following the specific instructions provided above on this link or otherwise on the Site, including the Frequently Asked Questions.

Once cancellation is confirmed, the canceled fan club membership associated with your account will be deactivated on the day of the month that your fan club membership began, provided you give at least three business days notice before your Anniversary Day. Your Anniversary Day is the day of the month you joined The Sports Fans Connection. For example if you joined on May 4th then your notice to cancel would have to be received by the first of any month. Another example is that your Anniversary Day could be May 8th and 11 months later you decide to cancel. The cancellation notice would have to be received by April 5th and your credit card then would not be charged for that month of April. Please be sure that you do in fact want to cancel your membership before doing so as access to member-only portions of the website will be inaccessible upon the Effective Date of Cancellation.

Here are the Steps you need to follow to cancel your membership:

Log on The Sports Fans Connection page;
Go to your individual profile page;
Click on the cancellation button at the bottom of your page;
Fill out the form that appears once you click on the cancellation button; and
The notice must be at least 3 business days before your Anniversary Day (see above).
You can see your Anniversary Day on your profile page. It is the day you signed up and became an active member of The Sports Fans Connection.

The Cancellation Policy and the Procedure for Cancellation are also repeated in the Frequently Asked Questions link on our site for your convenience.

We have no control over those websites. We are not responsible for the content of those websites, or the privacy practices of those websites.

Parental Controls

We cannot prohibit minors from visiting our Site, and rely on parents and guardians to decide what materials are appropriate for children to view and purchase. There are parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software or filtering services) available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. You can find information about parental controls at http://onguardonline.gov. We do not endorse the products or services listed at this website.

The Site is directed to people residing in the United States. We do not represent that Content available on or through the Site is appropriate or available in other locations. We may limit the availability of the Site or any service or product described on the Site to any person or geographic area at any time. If you choose to access the Site from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk.


Rules for Sweepstakes, Contests and Games

In addition to these Terms, sweepstakes, contests, games, rewards and reward programs, or other promotions (collectively, "Promotions") made available through the Site may have specific rules that are different from these Terms. By participating in a Promotion, you will become subject to those rules. We urge you to review the rules before you participate in a Promotion. Promotion rules will control over any conflict with these Terms.


Violation of these Terms

We may investigate any violation of these Terms, including unauthorized use of the Site. We may provide law enforcement with information you provide to us related to your transactions to assist in any investigation or prosecution of you. We may take legal action that we feel is appropriate. You agree that monetary damages may not provide us a sufficient remedy and that we may pursue injunctive or other relief for your violation of these Terms. If we determine that you have violated these Terms or the law, or for any other reason or for no reason, we may cancel your account, delete all your User Content and prevent you from accessing the Site at any time without notice to you. If that happens, you may no longer use the Site or any Content. You will still be bound by your obligations under these Terms. You agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party for termination of your access to the Site or to your account or any related information, and we will not be required to make the Site or your account or any related information available to you.

You agree that your abusive use of the Site may cause damage and harm to us, including impaired goodwill, lost sales and increased expenses. You also agree that monetary damages for your abusive use of the Site are difficult to determine and that if you, or others acting with you, request more than 1,000 pages of the Site or make more than 800 reserve requests on the Site in any 24-hour period, you, and those acting with you, will be jointly and severally liable for liquidated damages in the amount of twenty-five cents ($0.25) for each page request or reserve request made during that 24-hour period which exceeds those limits.


Disclaimer of Warranties

WE PROVIDE THE SITE AND THE CONTENT TO YOU "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE". WE TRY TO KEEP THE SITE UP, BUG-FREE AND SAFE, BUT YOU USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, AND TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLICABLE LAW PERMITS THE DISCLAIMER OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, ACCURACY, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE SITE WILL ALWAYS BE SAFE, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE SITE WILL ALWAYS FUNCTION WITHOUT DISRUPTIONS, DELAYS OR IMPERFECTIONS. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OR INFORMATION OF THIRD PARTIES, AND YOU RELEASE US FROM ANY CLAIMS AND DAMAGES, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE AGAINST ANY SUCH THIRD PARTIES. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE §1542, WHICH SAYS: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.


Limitation of Liability

IN NO EVENT WILL WE, THE ATHLETE, OR OUR EVENT PROVIDERS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS AND SPONSORS, BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR, AND YOU HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE OTHER THAN OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES, AND ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE, THE CONTENT, OR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE PURCHASED THROUGH THE SITE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE CLAIM IS BASED UPON ANY CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER FOR (a) ANY FAILURE OF ANOTHER USER OF THE SITE TO CONFORM TO THE CODES OF CONDUCT, (b) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF OUR SITE, (c) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (d) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, WORMS, TROJAN HORSES, DEFECTS, DATE BOMBS, TIME BOMBS OR OTHER ITEMS OF A DESTRUCTIVE NATURE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH OUR SITE, OR (e) ANY ERRORS, MISTAKES, INACCURACIES OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT. YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SITE IS TO STOP USING THE SITE. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. THE ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN US IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN US. OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR THE USE OF THE SITE WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100) OR THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID US IN THE PAST TWELVE MONTHS. IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS' FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE. OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED UNDER THIS PARAGRAPH TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, AND THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW PERMITS THE RECOVERY OF DAMAGES, ATTORNEYS’ FEES OR COSTS OTHERWISE PROHIBITED UNDER THIS PARAGRAPH. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH THAT (i) PROHIBIT DAMAGES TO BE MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED, (ii) IMPOSE A DAMAGES LIMITATION OF THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100) OR THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID US IN THE PAST TWELVE MONTHS, AND (iii) PROHIBIT THE RECOVERY OF ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND COSTS, DO NOT APPLY IN CERTAIN STATES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEW JERSEY, TO CLAIMS BROUGHT UNDER STATUTES PERMITTING SUCH RECOVERY.


Indemnification

If anyone brings a claim against us related to your use of the Site, the Content, your User Content or your violation of these Terms, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our affiliated companies, athletes, event providers, suppliers, advertisers and sponsors, and each of our officers, directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs). We reserve the right to take exclusive control and defense of any claim, and you will cooperate fully with us in asserting any available defenses.


Disputes, Including Mandatory Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site, or to products or services sold or distributed by us or through us, will be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court, with the following exceptions:

If a claim involves the conditional license granted to you as described in the Ownership of Content and Grant of Conditional License section above, either of us may file a lawsuit in a federal or state court located within Orange County, California, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes; and

In the event that the arbitration agreement in these Terms is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us may be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Orange, California, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.

The arbitration agreement in these Terms is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), including its procedural provisions, in all respects. This means that the FAA governs, among other things, the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement and all of its provisions, including, without limitation, the class action waiver discussed below. State arbitration laws do not govern in any respect.

This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted, and will survive termination of these Terms. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: The Connection Reward, Inc., 668 N. Coast Hwy. #231, Laguna Beach, California 92651, Attn: Legal. You may download the forms located at http://www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures or, if applicable, its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, and any applicable supplemental rules including its Consumer Arbitration Standards of Minimum Fairness. The JAMS Rules are available online at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling (800) 352-5267. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS's rules. In no event will we pay for attorneys' fees. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. You agree to waive any right to a jury trial or to participate in a class action. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration section will be null and void and neither of us will be entitled to arbitrate our dispute.

You agree that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and will be governed by and construed in accordance with federal law to the fullest extent possible.
