All instances of abuse will result in a complete revocation of any and all Rewards from all Accounts and a permanent ban from the Service.

When interacting with a third party as part of a promotion, you must meet all third party requirements to participate, including but not limited to age eligibility and your state of residence.

Your Rewards balance or any part of it is not transferable, cannot be brokered, bartered, or sold, and cannot be divided as part of a settlement, legal proceeding or death, and cannot be combined with Rewards of any other user or Account holder using the Service.
For Rewards offering a (“Cash Out”) option for U.S. dollars, you may request a (“Distribution Request”), as described in the section entitled “Payment Terms” below, to convert Rewards into an amount of cash, per the Promotion rules, and transfer to your PayPal account. It may take up to 7 bank business days for the amount to be processed by Company and appear in your PayPal account.
You may have one Cash Out payment per day with a maximum Cash Out payment of $300.00. The minimum Cash Out amount is $20.00. Without limiting any of the other conditions of these Terms, we reserve the right to modify the redemption Terms for Rewards and Cash Out at any time at our sole discretion.
If you do not make a Distribution Request, we are under no obligation to send you a Cash Out payment. You are responsible for redeeming your Rewards. There is no automatic redemption or periodic distribution of Rewards.
Reward balances, even those with Cash Out options, have no cash, monetary or other value prior to being accumulated and redeemed pursuant to a valid Distribution Request made in accordance with these Terms and their respective Promotion rules. No interest is paid on Reward balances.

You have not used or accessed your Account for 6 (six) consecutive months
Prohibited conduct, fraudulent behavior, or violation of these Terms
Applicable laws or regulations
User requested Account closure
Death of a user

If we notify Account holders that we have decided to terminate a specific Reward program and/or all Reward programs, you will have 30 days to make a Distribution Request for a valid Reward balance. If you do not make a Distribution Request within 30 days from notice, your entire Rewards balance will expire. Additionally, if you ever cancel your Account, it will be your responsibility to make a Distribution Request before canceling. If you do not make a Distribution Request before canceling your Account, any Reward balance in your Account may, subject to applicable laws, expire upon such cancellation.

Company will provide 30 days prior notice of a change in Reward values and that it is your responsibility to make a Distribution Request prior to this date, but you are not required to make a Distribution Request. By leaving your Rewards balance past any Reward value change date confirms you agree to the new Reward value set by Company and any new Terms.
You are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy and completeness of any Rewards to your Account performed by us hereunder. You must notify us of any errors within 15 days of such information being made available to you. If you do not notify us of any such errors within such 15 days, you will forfeit the right to contest a transaction and/or Reward except to the extent such forfeiture is prohibited by applicable law. You may notify Company at Info@FantasySportsCo.com.
When you make a Distribution Request, you agree to receive your funds into your PayPal account. Company only supports payment to you by PayPal at this time. From time to time we may change payment methods at our sole discretion.
If you elect to receive your Distribution Request via PayPal, we will pass the amount of your Cash Out to PayPal via the email address and other account details you provide. Once a Distribution Request is approved and payment is authorized by us, your Rewards balance will be reduced by the amount based on the respective Promotion terms.
We have no responsibility and assume no liability for any loss or delay of any Cash Out once we transfer the Cash Out to PayPal. We assume no liability in relation to your PayPal account, and you are solely responsible for your account with PayPal, including, but not limited to, data entry errors by you in providing your PayPal information. If PayPal is unable to distribute the Cash Out payment to you and if we receive from PayPal any funds that are part of a Cash Out that was not distributed by PayPal, we will credit such amounts to your Rewards account. Should PayPal overpay your Cash Out, you authorize us to instruct PayPal to deduct from your PayPal account the amount of such overpayment.

LINKING PAYMENT CARDS
In order to receive Rewards, if any are applicable, from qualifying Promotions or actions, you must link at least one eligible debit or credit card (a “Payment Card”) to your Account. If you register a valid Payment Card in connection with a Promotion, you authorize FSC access to monitor transactions for one or all, if more than one card is used, linked Payment Card(s) to identify qualifying purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for or earned rewards linked to your Payment Card.
Note that not all debit and credit cards are eligible to be linked to your Account. Whether a card is eligible to be a Payment Card is at our sole discretion. Certain Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and other bank cards may not be eligible to be linked to your Account. To be eligible as a Payment Card, it must be issued by a U.S. bank. In addition, you may not be able to link a debit or credit card to your Account if the card is already linked to certain other third-party card-linked offer programs.
Depending on applicable tax laws, your receipt of rewards may be subject to reporting to certain tax authorities. In accordance with such laws, we may be required to send to you and file certain forms with tax authorities, such as the IRS Form 1099-MISC (Miscellaneous Income), for any year in which rewards are issued to you. If we request information from you in order to complete a required tax form, and you fail to provide the requisite information, you will be prohibited from redeeming rewards from your Account until we receive the required information.

Claims that cannot be arbitrated must be brought in court.

RULES AND GOVERNING LAW
Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules then in effect. For more information, visit www.adr.org. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
You and FSC agree that the arbitrator ("Arbitrator"), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"). You and FSC agree that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of California.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party as specified by the AAA Rules. A Demand for Arbitration form can be found at Consumer Arbitration Rules at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
LOCATION AND PROCEDURE
Unless you and FSC otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and FSC submit to the Arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the Arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the Arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties.
The Arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction to do so. The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. An Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon shall have no precedential or collateral estoppel effect. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. FSC will not seek, and hereby waives all rights FSC may have under applicable law to recover attorneys' fees and expenses if FSC prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $10,000, FSC will pay all such fees, unless the Arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose. Each party agrees that any written decision and information exchanged during arbitration will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award.

If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement; and (3) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.

FSC MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE SERVICE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. FURTHER, COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANT, GUARANTEE OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE QUALITY OR ACCURACY OF INFORMATION FOR ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED OR PROVIDED BY ITS THIRD PARTY AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, OR OTHER PARTIES IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SERVICE. COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONALITY OF COMPANY PROPERTIES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THEY WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. YOU AGREE THAT THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICE OR GOOD IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, REMAINS SOLELY WITH YOU, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
You understand and agree that any notifications provided to you through the Service may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors. FSC does its best to provide notifications in a timely manner with accurate information. However, we neither guarantee the delivery nor the accuracy of the content of any notification. You also agree that FSC shall not be liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any notification; for any errors in the content of a notification; or for any actions taken or not taken by you or any third party in reliance on a notification.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
FSC SHALL IN NO EVENT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, LIQUIDATED OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFIT, REVENUE OR BUSINESS, ARISING IN WHOLE OR IN PART FROM YOUR ACCESS TO THE SERVICE, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR THIS AGREEMENT, OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION OBTAINED ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, EVEN IF FSC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS AGREEMENT, FSC’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO $500.00 (FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS). BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, THE LIABILITY OF FSC SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THEREFORE, THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT AFFECTS STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED OR LIMITED BY CONTRACT.
You agree to indemnify FSC and its affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, successors, agents and affiliates, for any and all claims, damages, losses and causes of action (including attorneys’ fees and court costs) arising out of or relating to your breach of this Agreement or for any materials or content in any form whatsoever that are provided by you (or through your username and/or password). You agree to cooperate as fully as reasonably required in our defense and/or settlement of any claim. We reserve the right, in our reasonable discretion, to assume exclusive control over the defense and settlement of any matter subject to indemnification by you.
You may terminate the Terms at any time by closing your Account, discontinuing any access to or use of the Service, and providing FSC with a notice of termination to Info@FantasySportsCo.com. We may, in our sole discretion, suspend, limit, or terminate your Account and your access to and use of the Service, including any and all reward balances in your Account, at any time for any reason, without notice or liability to you, including, but not limited to, if we suspect that your access to or use of the Service violates these Terms or applicable law. Upon the termination of your Account, you must cease all use of the Service, and you shall forfeit any reward balance remaining in your Account. Termination of your Account and your access to and use of the Service will not affect any of our rights or your obligations arising under these Terms prior to such termination. In the event you or FSC terminates your Account, you agree that we may retain your data, including personal and transaction information, for one year from the date of termination for audit and merchant invoicing purposes. Provisions of these Terms that, by their nature, should survive termination of your Account and your access to and use of the Service will survive such termination.
CHOICE OF LAW
These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California, U.S.A., without giving effect to any conflict of law principles, except as may be otherwise provided in the Arbitration Agreement above or in supplemental terms applicable to your region. However, the choice of law provision regarding the interpretation of these Terms is not intended to create any other substantive right to non-Californians to assert claims under California law whether that be by statute, common law, or otherwise. These provisions, and except as otherwise provided in the Arbitration Agreement of these Terms, are only intended to specify the use of California law to interpret these Terms and the forum for disputes asserting a breach of these Terms, and these provisions shall not be interpreted as generally extending California law to you if you do not otherwise reside in California. The foregoing choice of law and forum selection provisions do not apply to the Arbitration Agreement or to any arbitrable disputes as defined therein. Instead, as described in the Arbitration Agreement, the Federal Arbitration Act shall apply to any such disputes.
FSC will send all notices and other communications regarding the Service to you at the email address or physical address you provided for your Account, as may be updated by you from time to time. You will be considered to have received a notice from us regarding the Service when we send it to the email address or physical address we have in our records for you or when we post such notice on the FSC website or in the FSC Mobile App.
Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, all notices to us that are intended to have a legal effect must be delivered via email to Info@FantasySportsCo.com. All such notices are deemed effective upon documented receipt by us.
We reserve the right to modify, update, or discontinue the Service at our sole discretion, at any time, for any or no reason, and without notice or liability.
Except as otherwise stated in Third Party Information and Service above, nothing herein is intended, nor will be deemed, to confer rights or remedies upon any third party.
The Terms contain the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Service, and supersede any prior agreement between you and us on such subject matter. The parties acknowledge that no reliance is placed on any representation made but not expressly contained in these Terms.
Any failure on FSC’s part to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. The Terms may not be waived, except pursuant to a writing executed by FSC.
If any provision of the Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, then only that provision shall be modified to reflect the parties’ intention or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
The Terms, and any rights or obligations hereunder, are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with FSC’s prior written consent, but may be assigned or transferred by us without restriction. Any attempted assignment by you shall violate these Terms and be void.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, agency, special or fiduciary relationship exists between you and FSC as a result of these Terms, creation of an Account, or your use of the Service.
The section titles in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
