Conditions of Participation
Eligibility

As a general rule, HOFr will establish the jurisdictions in which a user must be located and of which a user must be resident in order to enter any Contests. Eligibility for entry into Contests can vary depending on the game, prize, sport, competition and such other variables as may be determined by HOFr from time to time. 

Legal residents physically located in Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Washington, Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia (the “Ineligible Jurisdictions”) are not eligible to create an account, deposit funds, participate in fantasy contests offering methods of entry deemed as consideration, win cash or cash equivalent prizes, and withdraw funds. 

In order to create an account and play, you must, at the time of the registration, meet all of the following conditions:

Commercial enterprises and business entities are not eligible to enter Contests. Employees and contractors of HOFr, its affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotional agencies, any other prize sponsor and any entity involved in the development, production, implementation, administration or fulfillment of the Contests, and the immediate family members and persons living in the same household, may not participate in any publicly available Contest with cash or cash equivalent prizes except for purposes of testing the user experience, but may not withdraw money or prizes. Employees and consultants of HOFr, or any other persons connected to the development, production, implementation, administration or fulfillment of the Contests, may not share any non-public confidential information to anyone outside HOFr. Employees and consultants of HOFr who have access to non-public confidential data or any other data not made available to all entrants on the Services or that provides an advantage in their play are also prohibited from participating in daily fantasy Contests on competitors’ websites or applications for cash prizes.

Professional or amateur athletes, non-retired athletes, sports agents, coaches, current team owners, team employees, referees, league officials, league employees, sports commissioners, and any individual who through ownership or employment may influence the gameplays, are ineligible to participate in any Contest in the sport or sports with which they are actively associated or play through another individual as a proxy.

By accessing and using the Services, you are representing and warranting that you meet the foregoing eligibility requirements. HOFr may require you to provide proof of your age, identity and eligibility at any time according to this section and may request specific documentation in order to do so. In the event that HOFr is unable to verify certain information or determines that you fail to meet the foregoing eligibility requirements, it may, at its sole discretion, terminate, suspend, or restrict your account from playing in some or all Contests. Failure to comply with adequate and acceptable proof of eligibility within a reasonable amount of time could result in your account being suspended or terminated and/or any awards earned withheld or revoked.

HOFr is committed to responsible gaming and providing you an enjoyable and positive experience that enhances the way you watch and participate with the sports you enjoy. We offer you tools to promote healthy player behavior and responsibly manage your play. You can learn more about our responsible gaming policy and tools at https://www.hofr.io/responsible gaming.

Registration

You must register for an account to be eligible to participate in a Contest. If you do not have an account, you will be prompted to sign up for one before being permitted to enter or participate in any Contest. If you already have an account, you will be prompted to verify your registration data and update any registration information that is inaccurate, not up-to-date or incomplete. 

Federal law requires us to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account, and that this information includes your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you.

You agree to ensure that your registration information is maintained and promptly updated to keep it accurate, current, and complete. If your registration information is inaccurate, not up-to-date or incomplete, you will automatically be deemed ineligible to participate in Contests, deposit funds, win and collect prizes, and HOFr, at its sole discretion, may deny you access to the Services and terminate your account. 

Your username must not be offensive, deceive or misinform other users, and may not offend common decency or infringe upon the rights of third parties. HOFr reserves the right to modify your username without prior notice. 

You may establish, own, maintain, use and control only one account. As a rule, each Contest entrant is allowed to play under one account. You may not share an account with another person or allow another user to play under your account. If another person accesses your account, you are solely responsible for all of their actions, whether or not their access was authorized by you, and you will be responsible and liable to HOFr for all costs, claims, expenses and damages arising in connection with the use of or access to your account by any third party.

Similarly, you may not enter a Contest on behalf of someone without an account, or that is ineligible to participate in the Contest. It is at HOFr’s sole discretion and judgment to determine whether multiple accounts belong to the same entrant. If you are found to be participating in the Contests using more than one account, such penalties may include, but are not limited to, terminating your access to the Services and/or disqualification from current and future Contests, refusing award of benefits or prizes and requiring the return of any prizes.

In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder at the time of entry will be deemed to be the entrant. Winners may be required to show proof of identification and/or proof that his/her identification matches the account information associated with the winning entry (both at the time of entry and at the time of verification of a winner).

Account Security

At the time of registration for an account, you must provide a valid email address and create a username to be used in conjunction with your account. You will be asked to enable an authentication token or mechanism to login. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, and are fully responsible for all uses of your username and account, whether by you or others. 

You acknowledge and agree that you will (i) keep your account secure and confidential and not share it with anyone else; (ii) immediately notify HOFr of any unauthorized use of your username or account or any other breach of security, including by any person who has access to any device on which your account is accessible; and (iii) use only your own username to access the Services. HOFr cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this section.

You also acknowledge and agree that HOFr may, but is not obligated to, deny access to an account or block any transaction made through use of your username and account without prior notice if HOFr suspects your username and account are being used by someone other than you, or for any other reason.

In the event you suspect your account is no longer secure and confidential, you should immediately notify HOFr by sending an email to support@hofr.io whereupon a new username may be selected and allocated and any future transactions under the previous username may be voided, at HOFr’s sole discretion. Without limiting the foregoing, any transactions made and accepted within the Services where your username has been used (and where you have not previously notified HOFr as provided herein) will be treated as valid.

Communications

As a result of your account registration, you may receive certain commercial communications from HOFr. You understand and agree that these communications are part of your registration, and that, to the extent required by law, you may opt out of receiving these communications at any time by either using the “unsubscribe” feature in these communications or sending an email to support@hofr.io. Following such an opt-out, we may still communicate with you via email to the extent permitted by applicable law.

We may use your information (both personal and non-personal information) to send you marketing and advertising content, including sending you advertising through multiple channels, such as direct mail, email, push notifications and display media. We may send you advertising or content regarding our products and services, or products and services that we jointly offer with another company, such as a sports team, a sports venue, or any other entity. 

You acknowledge, consent and agree that HOFr may access, preserve and disclose your account information and content if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with legal process; (ii) to enforce these Terms of Service; (iii) to respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; (iv) to respond to your requests for customer service; or (v) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of HOFr, its users and the public.

Publicity

By entering a Contest, you consent to HOFr’s and its service providers’ and business partners’ use of your name, voice, likeness, and location in connection with the development, production, distribution and/or exploitation (including marketing and promotion) of the selected Contest and/or other HOFr Contests and HOFr generally, unless otherwise prohibited by law.

HOFr and its business partners reserve the right to make public statements about the entrants and winner(s), on the Internet, or otherwise, prior to, during, or following the Contest. Entrants agree that HOFr may announce any winner's name on-air or on its website or any other location at any time in connection with the marketing and promotion of HOFr or other Contests or Services operated by HOFr. 

Contest winners agree that, from the date of notification of their status as a potential winner, and continuing until such time when notified that they no longer need to do so, they will make themselves available to HOFr for publicity, advertising and promotional activities relating to any Contest in which they participate.

You agree that participation in and (where applicable) the winning of a prize in connection with a Contest constitute complete compensation for your obligations under this section, and you agree not to seek to charge a fee or impose other conditions on the fulfillment of these obligations. 

By accessing the Services, you consent to the collection and use of your personal data as described in HOFr’s Privacy Policy, located at www.hofr.io/privacy. This Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with these Terms of Service.

HOFr Contests

You will be able to visit the HOFr App and view the Contests available for entry. Some Contests may be free-to-play and other Contests may require an entry fee to participate. Each Contest is governed by Official Rules (the "Rules"). You have the responsibility to know and understand the Rules prior to participating in any Contest, and to review the Rules for any changes. You agree to abide by the then-current Rules for the Contest(s) in which you participate. 

Contests of Skill

All HOFr’s fantasy Contests are designed as games of skill. Winners for each Contest are determined by the Contest participants using their skill and knowledge of relevant professional sports information and fantasy sports rules to accumulate the most fantasy points as outlined in the Rules. Fantasy points are accumulated through the performance of multiple individual athletes in a minimum of one (1) sporting event. 

THE CONTESTS SHALL NOT BE USED FOR ANY FORM OF GAMBLING. They are strictly for entertainment purposes and may be not considered as subject to odds or any type of random selection of winners.

HOFr reserves the right to cancel, extend, modify or suspend Contests, in its sole discretion, without any restrictions.

Free-to-Play Contests

HOFr may, at its sole discretion, offer free-to-play Contests with cash or cash equivalent prizes including promotional prizes as determined by us. The rules for free-to-play Contests may establish the jurisdictions in which a user must be located and of which a user must be resident in order to participate.

No purchase or payment is necessary to participate in free-to-play Contests.The Contests are void where prohibited or restricted by law or where bonding, registration, or other requirements would be required and have not been met, or where the methods of entry set forth below would be deemed consideration. U.S. Federal, state and local laws as applicable in each jurisdiction govern free-to-play Contests.  

In order to be eligible to enter a free-to-play Contest, users must register an account and be at least 18 years of age or of the legal age in the jurisdiction in which they reside at the time of account creation.

The number of entries allowed per free-to-play Contest is limited to one (1) entry per individual regardless of the number of devices the App has been downloaded on. Should an entrant have submitted more than one entry per Contest by, for instance but not limited to, using multiple accounts, HOFr reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate the account(s) as well as withhold prizes from that entrant.

For each free-to-play Contest, the number of winners, and the prize(s) or rewards will be set forth in the App on the home screen prior to the beginning of the Contest. Within seven (7) days after the end of the applicable Contest, the prizes or rewards for that Contest will be awarded to the winners’ accounts. If a winner cannot be verified pursuant to these Terms or is ineligible, then such winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize or reward and may be subject to account suspension or termination. Prizes must be claimed in full. No substitution or transfer of prizes or rewards is permitted.

Paid-Entry Contests
Deposits

You may be required to pay an entry fee to participate in certain Contests. You may add funds to your account to pay Contest entry fees by any of the methods permitted on the Services. Such funds will be deposited into your account upon actual receipt of the funds by HOFr and/or its agents. Due to administrative costs, the minimum amount you can deposit into your account in any one transaction is ten (10) US dollars. Maximum deposit limits may apply, depending upon state-imposed deposit limits, your history with the Services, the method of deposit, and other factors as determined solely by HOFr. No interest is payable on amounts on deposit in your account. All payments into your account must be from a payment source on which you are the named account holder. It shall be a violation of these Terms for you to submit payment using any payment method that you are not the named account holder. In addition, to be eligible to deposit money into your account and play in Contests that award prizes, you must not be subject to Backup Withholding Tax from the IRS.

By depositing funds or entering paid-entry Contests, you agree to provide HOFr with a valid name, mailing address, date of birth, and any other information we may require in order to run appropriate identity checks, comply with applicable rules and regulations, and help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities. If necessary, you may be required to provide appropriate documentation that allows HOFr to verify you, e.g. valid driver’s license, proof of residence or government identification number. While your account is pending verification, you may be able to deposit funds into your account and participate in paid-entry Contests, but you will not be able to withdraw any funds from your account until verification is complete. If HOFr is unable to verify you, it reserves the right to suspend your account and withhold any funds until such time as it has been able to successfully verify you.

All deposits and withdrawals will be denominated in U.S. dollars unless otherwise expressly stated. If you make a deposit that is denominated in a currency other than U.S. dollars, please be aware that the funds will be converted into U.S. dollars by our Payment Processors (as defined below) or your financial institution and you may be charged a service fee for such conversion. Please also be aware that our Payment Processors and/or your financial institution may use different conversion rates for deposit and withdrawal transactions and such conversion rates are not under HOFr’s control. 

Your deposits and winnings will be added to your HOFr account balance, and such funds will be held in a separate, segregated bank account by HOFr. These funds belong to you, subject to review for evidence of fraud, verification or other prohibited conduct as described in these Terms of Service. HOFr may not use them to cover its operating expenses or for other purposes. Your withdrawals will be made from this segregated bank account, and payments issued from that account may bear the name of HOFr Payment Services LLC.

You agree that the sole and specific purpose of depositing funds is to participate in paid-entry Contests. Your account shall be suspended, limited or terminated if HOFr determines, in its sole discretion, that you are without the intention of using them in paid-entry Contests. In such circumstances, HOFr may also report such activity to relevant authorities.

Players who believe that their accounts have been misallocated, compromised or otherwise mishandled, may register a complaint with HOFr by emailing support@hofr.io or in writing to HOFr Inc, 555 Madison Ave, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10022. HOFr shall use its best efforts to acknowledge receipt of such complaints and respond to them within ten (10) business days.


Payment Processors

HOFr uses third-party electronic payment processors ("Payment Processors") to process deposits and/or payments for the Services. Our Privacy Policy describes in further detail what information HOFr provides and receives from these Payment Processors and the manner in which such information is used and disclosed. By using the Services, you irrevocably authorize HOFr, as necessary, to instruct its Payment Processors to handle payments on your behalf in accordance with your requests. You agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of each applicable Payment Processor, and in the event of a conflict between these Terms of Service and the Payment Processors' terms and conditions, these Terms of Service shall prevail. You further agree that HOFr is not liable for any loss caused by any unauthorized use of your credit card or other method of payment by a third party in connection with your use of the Services, except as a result of the gross negligence of HOFr or its employees.


Withdrawals

You may withdraw cash prize winnings (excluding bonuses and promotions) once funds have settled into your account. Due to administrative costs, the minimum withdrawal amount is ten (10) US dollars, unless you are closing your account. Account holders with pending deposits must wait until those funds clear before requesting a withdrawal. Any withdrawals are delivered via the withdrawal method you will select. Fund withdrawals are processed immediately but might take up to seven (7) business days to be received. If you do not receive your withdrawal of funds after seven (7) business days, please contact our customer service at support@hofr.io. HOFr reserves the right to suspend your account and/or withhold your withdrawal of any funds pending completion of any investigation of reported or suspected abuse.

Any amounts that are mistakenly credited as winnings to your account remain HOFr’s property and will automatically be transferred from your account upon confirmation of the error. Any winnings mistakenly credited to your account that have been withdrawn by you before confirmation of the error will constitute a debt owed by you to HOFr in the amount of such wrongfully attributed winnings.

HOFr may conduct account verifications for compliance with these Terms of Service, including anti-fraud verification on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing a withdrawal. HOFr also reserves the right to require proof of identity, to verify age and/or identity, prior to processing a withdrawal.  Withdrawal payments will not be processed until such verification is complete. If the requested additional information for verification is not received within ten (10) business days, the withdrawal request will be cancelled and the account suspended. If your account is revoked for a violation of these Terms of Service, HOFr reserves the right to determine whether to declare as void any transaction placed by you. If a prize has been awarded to an account revoked due a violation of the Terms of Service, HOFr may withhold the prize or revoke the awarding of any prizes associated with such account. In this event, HOFr may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant Contest(s). 

Subject to account verification, you may close your account and withdraw your deposits and/or winnings at any time and for any reason.


Bonus and Promotions 

HOFr may award bonuses and promotions to users that participate in free-to-play Contests, deposit money into their account, and for other marketing purposes. You may not withdraw any cash bonuses and promotions you receive from your HOFr account. Any attempted abuse of bonuses is prohibited, and may result in the loss of bonuses, cancellation of winnings and the suspension of an account.  

Abuse of bonuses includes, but is not limited to, i) making a cash deposit to your account, receiving a bonus, then withdrawing the cash deposit; ii) receiving a bonus and intentionally transferring such bonus to another account set up by you or another individual iii) claiming a 'new registration bonus' that is reserved only for new entrants who do not already have a HOFr account, despite you have already previously registered for an account. 

HOFr may remove any bonus that remains in an account 30 days after it was initially credited and not used to participate in Contest(s).


Entry Fee and Payment

Each Contest that is not free-to-play has an entry fee listed in US dollars. The entry fee may vary from Contest to Contest. When you choose to enter a Contest that is not free-to-play and complete the entry process, the respective entry fee amount will be debited from your account. All payments are final. Unless otherwise expressly noted, no refunds will be issued. 

In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry into a Contest, the entry will be deemed submitted by the person in whose username the entry was submitted, or if possession of the username itself is contested, the name in which the email address on file was registered with the email service provider. HOFr reserves the right not to award a prize to an individual who did not submit the requisite entry. 

Prizes are only awarded if a Contest is run. HOFr reserves the right to cancel Contests at any time. In the event of cancellation, all entry fees will be credited back to the players’ accounts. 

Statistics and Scoring

All ‘live’ statistics and other information provided through the Services and related information sources are unofficial. Live sports statistics and their respective components are offered for informational and/or entertainment purposes only and are not used to determine the results of our Contests. While HOFr and the third parties used to provide the Services use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information, neither HOFr nor its third-party providers warrant or make any representations of any kind with respect to the information provided through the Services and related information sources. HOFr and its third-party providers shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness, or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the Services and related information sources, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information. 

Contest Results

The results and winners of each Contest will be determined at HOFr’s sole discretion and such determinations are final. Contest winners are determined using the criteria set forth in the rules for each Contest, and through the highest amount of Contest points accumulated from the statistical results of the performance of individual athletes in sporting events.  No Contests are based solely on the score, point spread, or any performance(s) of any single real-world team or any combination of such teams, or solely on any single performance of an individual athlete in any single real-world sporting or other event.

Once winners are announced and prizes are awarded, the scoring results will not be changed regardless of any official adjustments made by sports leagues. However, HOFr reserves the right to make adjustments as they see fit based on errors or irregularities in the transmission of the results information or in the calculation of the results. 

By registering an account and participating in any Contest, you agree to be bound by the foregoing determinations.

Prizes

All prizes offered are established and made known to entrants in advance of a Contest and the value of prizes are not subject to change dependent on the number of entrants or the amount of any fees paid by those entrants.

Potential winners are announced at the conclusion of each Contest, generally by the following day, and subject to verification, such as, but not limited to, compliance with eligibility requirements and applicable rules.

Prizes won are added to the winners’ account balance. In the event of a tie, prizes will be evenly distributed to the tied participants.

No substitution or transfer of prizes are permitted. 

Taxation

You remain solely responsible for filing and paying all federal and other applicable taxes associated with any prize received in accordance with the laws that apply in your state, province, and/or country of residence.

In compliance with the United States’ Internal Revenue Service regulations, all winners who have won in excess of $600 or more (winnings less entry fees) during any given year will receive an IRS Form 1099-MISC or other appropriate form. HOFr reserves the right to terminate your account and/or withhold the withdrawal of any funds pending reception of the required form(s). If, at the conclusion of any given calendar year, your net winnings exceed $600, HOFr will complete and file a 1099-MISC form with the Internal Revenue Service as required by law. 

Disqualification

HOFr, in its sole discretion, may disqualify you from a Contest or the Services, refuse to award points, bonuses, rewards or prizes and require the return of any prizes, or suspend, limit, or terminate your account if you engage in conduct HOFr deems, in its sole discretion, to be improper, unfair, fraudulent or otherwise adverse to the operation of the Services or in any way detrimental to other users. 

Improper, unfair, fraudulent or adverse conduct includes, but is not limited to:

You acknowledge that the revoking and/or return of any prize shall in no way prevent HOFr from informing the relevant authorities, and/or pursuing criminal or civil proceedings in connection with such conduct.

Cancellation

As a general rule, HOFr reserves the right to cancel, extend, modify or suspend Contests, in its sole discretion, without any restrictions. In the event that a paid-entry Contest is canceled, postponed, or interrupted for any reason, entry fees will be refunded to the players’ accounts. Guaranteed contests will run whether or not a contest reaches its capacity. Non-guaranteed contests that do not reach capacity before the contest starts, will be canceled and entry fees refunded.

If for any reason the Services are not running as originally planned, e.g. if the Services becomes corrupted or do not allow the proper usage and processing of entries in accordance with the Rules, or if infection by a computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, actions by entrants, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes of any kind, in the sole opinion of HOFr corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Services, HOFr reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual implicated in or relating to the cause and/or to cancel, terminate, extend, modify or suspend the Services, and select the winner(s) from all eligible entries received. If such cancellation, termination, modification or suspension occurs, entrants may be notified either through the Services user interface, in an email notification or through other reasonable means.

In the event HOFr is prevented from running a Contest or the integrity and/or feasibility of a Contest is severely undermined by any event beyond the control of HOFr, including but not limited to fire, flood, epidemic, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, war (declared or undeclared), terrorist threat or activity, or any federal, state or local government law, order, or regulation, order of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within the control of HOFr, HOFr reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify, or suspend a Contest without any further obligation.

If a counter-notice is received by the copyright agent, HOFr will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.

Repeat Infringer Policy: In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, HOFr has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at HOFr ‘s sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

Agreement to Arbitrate: This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in these Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and HOFr, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms of Service, you and HOFr are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND HOFr AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND HOFr AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.

Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution: HOFr is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to the user’s satisfaction by emailing our support team at support@hofr.io. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to HOFr should be sent to HOFr Inc, 555 Madison Ave, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10022 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If HOFr and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or HOFr may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by HOFr or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or HOFr is entitled.

Arbitration Procedures: Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Unless HOFr and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, HOFr agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.

Costs of Arbitration: Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided herein. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. 

Confidentiality: All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.Severability: If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement: Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, HOFr agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services, you may reject any such change by sending HOFr written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).

Termination

You agree that HOFr, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Services and remove and discard any content within the Services, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if HOFr believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Services, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. HOFr may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Services, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Services under any provision of these Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that HOFr may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Services.

General

You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third party services, third party content or third party software. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to any conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and HOFr agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in New York, New York. The failure of HOFr to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

You may not assign these Terms of Service without the prior written consent of HOFr, but HOFr may assign or transfer these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Services may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Services.
