The following Terms and Conditions (“Terms,” or “Agreement,” or “Conditions”) apply to all individuals who register for an account with the Site or use the Services (“user,” “you,” or “your”). Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully. If you do not agree to the Terms, please do not access the site or sign up for a subscription. By registering an account or purchasing a subscription, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with us, and you agree to our Terms and Conditions.
The Site is only for use by those age 18 or older. Please do not register or purchase a subscription to the Site if you are younger than 18 years of age.
Fantasy Points LLC provides its users and subscribers with a variety of tools and media related to fantasy football and NFL betting, including articles, podcasts, livestreams, downloads, rankings, projections, tools, and news. The Services provided are intended for personal and entertainment purposes only. You agree to not use the Site for any other purposes and agree that the Site will not be used for in or connection with any illegal activities.
Eligibility and Registration
Our Services are available to those residing in the United States and Canada aged 18 or older. Those residing outside of the United States and Canada are prohibited from registering for an account and using the Services.
To access our Services, including content marked as free, you must register an account using accurate, current and complete information, including your age and contact information. You agree not to impersonate or misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity, including using another person’s username, password or other account information, or another person’s name or likeness. You agree that we may take steps to verify the accuracy of information you provide, including your age, location, and contact information. You agree to keep your password confidential and will be responsible for all use of your account and password. We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change a username you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such username is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
Each registration is for a single individual only; sharing usernames and passwords is strictly prohibited. Additionally, sharing of resources, including downloadable content, is strictly prohibited. You agree to notify us immediately of any possible breach in security or unauthorized use of your account.
Subscriptions to the Services operate on a custom year schedule, beginning every March 1 and ending every February 28. We do not offer pro-rated subscriptions, unless otherwise stated during the NFL regular season. For clarity, a 1-year subscription purchased in August 2020 will expire March 1, 2021.
Our rates and charges are subject to change, at our discretion, and we agree to provide reasonable notice to you when prices change.
We may occasionally offer promotional codes for discounts. These codes must be applied at the time of purchase and cannot be retroactively applied. Valid and eligible promotional codes are advertised only on the Site or through our third-party affiliates. Promotional codes retrieved on third-party websites not associated with the Site will not be honored.
When purchasing a subscription, you agree that the payment information is both accurate and authorized.
Cancellations and Refunds
When you subscribe to the Services, it is expected that you have carefully read our What You Get and Why Subscribe pages for a full and detailed list of the services and content we provide. Thus, all subscription sales are final and no refunds will be offered. You may be offered a subscription for the following year free of charge in lieu of a cancellation and refund due to extenuating circumstances, but that determination is made on a case-by-case basis and it is up to our discretion whether to provide an extra year of subscription to the Services. While COVID-19 presents unprecedented circumstances, we are offering subscriptions and/or discounts for next year if the season is cancelled or shortened. See our 2020 COVID policies below for more information. You may not request a refund if your Fantasy Football League is cancelled.

Fantasy Points LLC will make every attempt to resolve a dispute is a prompt and professional manner. For complaints, please email [email protected]. Fantasy Points LLC reserves the right to record all communications in regards to disputes.
To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms and Conditions (each a "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least 30 days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.
You agree that any complaints and disputes are to remain confidential while seeking a resolution.
If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures.
Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the JAMS Comprehensive Rules and Procedures and, where appropriate, limited by the JAMS Comprehensive Rules and Procedures. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, we will pay all arbitration fees and expenses.
The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party.
The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable JAMS Comprehensive Rules and Procedures or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in Camden County, New Jersey.
Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in Camden County, New Jersey, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts.
In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one year after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

Due to the effect of COVID-19, our content will be accessible to all FREE plans until August 1st, 2020. Users may still purchase or upgrade their plans to STANDARD or PREMIUM. If there is no 2020 NFL season, all subscriptions will roll-over to the 2021 NFL season. There will be no refunds.
If, for any reason, the NFL season is cut short, we will operate on the premise that packages are 30% preseason, 70% in-season. Therefore, we will be offering a discount for the 2021 NFL season for active subscribers based on the week during which the NFL season is canceled. Prior to Week 12, each week missed will result in a 3.5% discount off of a 2021 subscription. If the season ends after Week 12, we will not provide a future discount. THIS ONLY APPLIES TO USERS WHO HAVE AN ACTIVE STANDARD OR PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION AT THE TIME OF THE SEASON’S CANCELLATION.
