Terms of Service

ACCEPTANCE OF YAHOO! TERMS

Welcome to Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football ("Fantasy Football"), owned and operated by Yahoo! Inc. ("Yahoo!"). Yahoo! offers the Fantasy Football service and the Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football Premium Services (each, a "Premium Service") to you subject to these Additional Terms (which supplement the Yahoo! Terms of Service, located at http://docs.yahoo.com/info/terms/, and are hereby incorporated by reference), the Yahoo! Fantasy Football official game instructions ("Official Game Instructions", located at http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/football/frules), and any other rules or guidelines that may be published by Yahoo! on a periodic basis (any of which may be updated by Yahoo! from time to time) (collectively, the "Agreement"). For clarity, Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football is a "Service" as defined in the Yahoo! Terms of Service. ANY PARTICIPATION IN FANTASY FOOTBALL OR THE USE OF ANY PREMIUM SERVICE WILL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN FANTASY FOOTBALL OR USE THE PREMIUM SERVICES.

YAHOO! ID REQUIREMENT

To participate in Fantasy Football or use any Premium Services, you must have a valid Yahoo! ID. If you do not have a Yahoo! ID, you will be prompted to sign up for one before completing the registration process for Fantasy Football or the Premium Services.

PAYMENT TERMS FOR PREMIUM SERVICES

Your signup fee for the Premium Service package of your choice ("Signup Fee") gives you access to the features of that particular package from the time you sign up through the end of the National Football League's current regular season. The credit card that you provide as part of your registration data will automatically and immediately be billed for the Premium Service package you request. However, if you have received an offer to try a Premium Service package free for a specific number of days, then you will not be charged until after the free trial period has ended. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. Please note that your payment for any Premium Service is non-refundable, and you may not cancel your Premium Service membership before the end of the current regular season.

TERMINATION OF SERVICE

Notwithstanding anything in the previous paragraph, Yahoo! reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the Service or any Premium Service package at any time for any reason, without notice to you, and provide you a full refund for any Signup Fees you may have paid to Yahoo!. In the event that the Service or any Premium Service is terminated under this provision, you acknowledge and agree that Yahoo!'s sole liability to you will be for any Signup Fees you may have paid, and not for any incidental, consequential, indirect, special or exemplary damages (even if Yahoo! has been advised of the possibility of such damages) arising from or relating to your involvement in, or Yahoo!'s decision to terminate, the Service or any Premium Service.

TERMINATION OF ACCOUNT

If (a) your credit card is invalid for any reason, (b) you charge back to your credit card the fees due under these Additional Terms, (c) it appears you have engaged in cheating or manipulation of the Service, or (d) Yahoo! otherwise believes you have acted in a manner inconsistent with the spirit or the letter of the TOS or these Additional Terms, your Fantasy Football account may be suspended or cancelled immediately and all information contained within it immediately deleted or made inaccessible. Yahoo! may, but has no duty to, immediately terminate your access to the Service if Yahoo! in its sole opinion concludes that you have provided false information in connection with your registration data. Yahoo! accepts no liability for information that is deleted due to the termination of your account.
