Although we may attempt to notify you when major changes are made to the Agreement, you should periodically review the most up-to-date version.

Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.
1. Description of Service:
"Fantrax.com" is an interactive online service (the "Service") on the World Wide Web of the Internet (address: http://www.fantrax.com) operated by Fantrax. The Service offers users access to (i) information, software and other content owned or licensed by Fantrax and third-parties ("Content Providers"), and (ii) merchandise and services offered by independent merchants ("Merchants") and Fantrax. "Account Holder" 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 Account Holder and an Account Holder Account is not transferable.
THE Fantrax SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE TO INDIVIDUALS OR ENTITIES THAT CANNOT REPRESENT AND WARRANT THE FOLLOWING. Fantrax may require you to provide Fantrax with proof that you are eligible to participate according to this Section 2 prior to receiving a prize.
You hereby represent and warrant that:
i) you are a natural person (corporate entities and similar organizations are not eligible to use the Fantrax Service for any purpose) and are over the age of majority in your State, Province, or Territory of residence, and or are otherwise fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations and warranties set forth in the Agreement and to abide by and comply with the terms of the Agreement. In any case, you affirm that you are over the age of 13, as the Fantrax Service is not intended for children under 13;
ii) you are a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States of America or Canada and that you have an address in the United States of America or Canada, or you are a resident of another country where this type of skill contest is legal;
iii) if you are physically located in the United States of America or Canada, that you reside in a jurisdiction in which use of any Fantrax Service is not prohibited by applicable law;
iv) if you are using any Fantrax Service in which a prize is awarded, YOU ARE NOT A RESIDENT OF ANY of the following states: Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, and Montana.
v) you will abide at all times by the terms of the Agreement; and
vi) if you are using any Fantrax Service in which a prize is awarded you are not an employee, officer, or director (or such person's Immediate Family Member) of Fantrax, its parent companies, subsidiaries, and affiliates; or any other person with access to non-public information regarding the operation of such Service. For purposes of this Section 2, "Immediate Family Member" includes parents, siblings, spouses, children, or any other person permanently residing in the same household with such employee, officer, or director.
If you do not meet the eligibility requirements of this Section 2, then do not use the Fantrax Service. In addition to any other rights that Fantrax may have in law or equity, Fantrax reserves the right to suspend or terminate the account (and terminate, withhold or revoke any prizes associated with such account) of any purported user of the Fantrax Service that does not meet the foregoing requirements.
3. Fantrax Service Access:
Fantrax grants you permission to use the Fantrax Service as set forth in these Terms, provided that (i) you use the Fantrax Service solely for your personal, private, non-commercial use; (ii) except as expressly permitted in this Agreement or the Operating Rules, you do not download, reproduce, redistribute, retransmit, publish, resell, publicly display or otherwise commercially exploit any portion of the Service (including any information, content or software other than software to be used solely in connection with Account Holder's Account), without Fantrax's prior written authorization; (iii) you do not alter or modify any part of the Fantrax Service other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the Fantrax Service for its intended purposes; (iv) you do not engage in any of the prohibited uses described in the Agreement (including Section 15, below); and (v) you will otherwise fully comply with the terms of the Agreement. The Fantrax Service is controlled and offered by Fantrax from its facilities in Toronto, Canada. Fantrax makes no representations that the Fantrax Service is appropriate or available for use in all locations. You are solely responsible for compliance with local law. For clarity, if it is illegal for you to access or use the Fantrax Service in the jurisdiction where you are located, it is a material breach of this Agreement for you to do so.
4. Price and Payment:
Fantrax.com may offer Premium Content, Subscriptions and Pay Tournaments on a chargeable basis. Account Holders must provide Fantrax with valid credit card information at the time of purchase. All fees will be charged at the standard fees in effect for that Premium Content, Subscription, or Pay Tournaments at the time the fee becomes payable. Fantrax will not automatically renew Premium Content, Subscription, or Pay Tournament purchases. The Account Holder will be responsible for all charges incurred through use of the Account, including but not limited to charges incurred by any Immediate Family Member of the Account Holder.
Fantrax reserves the right, at any time, to (i) change the terms of this Agreement including any Operating Rules, (ii) change the Service, including eliminating or discontinuing any content or feature of the Service, restricting the hours of availability or limiting the amount of use permitted by the Account Holder, or (iii) charge any fees for use of the Service, including instituting new or increased fees or charges for the use of the Service or any feature thereof. All changes shall be effective immediately. Any use of the Service after any such change shall be deemed to constitute acceptance by you of the change.

You hereby represent and warrant that the information you provide to Fantrax upon registration and, at all other times, will be true, accurate, current, and complete. You also hereby represent and warrant that you will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up-to-date at all times. Knowingly submitting incomplete or inaccurate information may result in immediate termination of your Account and forfeiture of any prizes to which you may have otherwise been entitled.

Access to and use of premium features or options of the Service is subject to posted terms and conditions.

26.1 Governing Law
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.
26.2 Dispute Resolution
(a) Generally. If a dispute arises between Fantrax and you, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and Fantrax agree that the parties will resolve any claim, dispute or controversy at law or equity that arises out of or relates in any way whatsoever to this Agreement or the Fantrax Service (a "Claim") in accordance with one of the subsections below or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.
(b) Choice of Law; Forum. This agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of New York as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within New York between New York residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim you may have against Fantrax must be resolved exclusively by a court located in New York County, New York, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Option paragraph below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within New York County, New York for the purpose of litigating all such Claims.
(c) Arbitration Option. For any Claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(d) Improperly Filed Claims. Any Claim you bring against Fantrax must be resolved in accordance with this Section 26.2 (Dispute Resolution). Any Claim asserted or filed contrary to this Section 26.2 (Dispute Resolution) shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a Claim contrary to this Section 26.2 (Dispute Resolution), Fantrax shall recover its incurred fees in defending against the Claim to the maximum extent permitted by law, provided that Fantrax has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to withdraw the Claim within five business days of your receipt of such notice.
A provision of this Agreement may be waived only by a written instrument executed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision. The failure of Fantrax to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be 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.
The terms of this Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Fantrax without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of this Agreement shall be void.
