SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND PAYMENT; SUBSCRIPTIONS
Subscription Fees: You can find the current subscription fees and other charges for each Service (the “Fees”) posted on the Site pages for the applicable Service. Notwithstanding anything contrary in this Subscriber Agreement, the Fees shall be exclusive of U.S. state and local sales taxes and any other applicable transaction taxes (collectively, “Taxes”). You agree to pay all subscription Fees, other Fees, and any applicable Taxes incurred in connection with your access to the applicable Service and/or your Service Password (defined below), at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. We may change the Fees, or add new Fees, upon prior notice to you either by e-mail or by publishing the changes on the Site pages for the applicable Service. You acknowledge and agree that you shall be responsible for reviewing the applicable Service’s schedule of Fees from time to time for changes, and you further agree that changes shall be effective as set forth in the applicable notice.
We may contract with other third parties in connection with the sale of Service subscriptions and/or operation of the Services. For any purchases made via the Site (www.nba.com and NBA Apps), you agree to pay NBADSU and/or a third party contracted by Us any taxes imposed on the sale of subscriptions or other products or services via the Service, for remission to appropriate taxing authorities. If you purchase a Service subscription using your account with a third-party app store (e.g., Apple App Store, Google Play), your purchase will be billed by that third party app store and will be subject to the additional terms and conditions governing the making of purchases via such store.
Payment: For any subscription you purchase, you authorize subscription Fees to be billed automatically to the means of payment you designate (for example, the PayPal account or credit card you designate via the Site, or the credit card you designate for a third party app store). You agree to provide a valid means of payment and accurate, complete and updated information required by the subscription registration form. By submitting your means of payment (e.g., credit card or PayPal account) as the form of payment, you represent and warrant that your use of such means of payment is authorized and that all information that you submit is true and accurate (including, without limitation, credit card and/or account number and expiration date). In doing so, you also authorize charges to your means of payment for all amounts payable by you based on the subscription/billing plan you selected, including, but not limited to, all Fees and any applicable taxes. Failure to comply may result in the immediate suspension or termination of your access to the applicable Service. If you want to designate a different means of payment or need to update validity or expiration date information, please visit your NBA Account Page to learn about how to make changes.
Unable-to-be-processed payments: If We are unable to process your means of payment at any time, your Service account may be immediately suspended or terminated and you will remain responsible for all amounts payable by you to Us. Your agreement with your credit issuer governs use of your credit card and the PayPal user agreement governs your use of the PayPal service. You must refer to those agreements with respect to your rights and liabilities as, as applicable, a cardholder or PayPal account holder. We reserve the right to continue to collect payment (and to continue to attempt to collect payment) that has not been collected due to technical or other issues.
Free Trial Period: We (from time to time in our sole discretion) may choose to offer new users of the applicable Service a free trial period (i.e., period during which the user may access the applicable Service or some part of it without first being charged a subscription fee). The length of any such period and the additional terms and conditions associated with it shall be displayed proximately to where you are able to register for the free trial period. Any such additional terms and conditions shall, in addition to this Subscriber Agreement, apply to the free trial period.
YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME DURING THE FREE PREVIEW PERIOD. OUR CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS ARE HERE. FOR CERTAIN FREE TRIAL OFFERS, IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL, THEN, UPON EXPIRATION OF THE FREE TRIAL PERIOD, YOU WILL BE ENROLLED IN THE SERVICE SUBSCRIPTION THAT YOU SELECTED WHEN YOU REGISTERED FOR THE FREE PREVIEW PERIOD, AND YOU WILL BE CHARGED (E.G., THE PAYMENT MEANS YOU PROVIDED TO US WILL BE CHARGED) THE FEES APPLICABLE TO THE SERVICE SUBSCRIPTION THAT YOU SELECTED WHEN YOU REGISTERED FOR THE FREE PREVIEW PERIOD. YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL THEN AUTOMATICALLY RENEW (AND YOU WILL BE CHARGED THE APPLICABLE FEES EACH TIME YOUR SUBSCRIPTION RENEWS) AS DESCRIBED BELOW UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU SUBSEQUENTLY CANCEL IT. IF YOUR FREE TRIAL PERIOD IS ONE THAT WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONVERT INTO A SUBSCRIPTION THAT REQURIES THE PAYMENT OF ASSOCIATED SUBSCRIPTION FEES, THIS WILL BE STATED AT THE POINT WHERE YOU REGISTER FOR THE PREVIEW PERIOD.
Subscriptions and periodic billing: There are different types of Service subscriptions available.
Some subscriptions begin when you place your order and continue until terminated as provided in this Agreement, and these subscriptions require you to pay the associated subscription Fees periodically and in advance (for example, for some subscriptions, you must pay the associated subscription Fee for each NBA season in full in advance, and for other subscriptions you must pay a recurring fee throughout the duration of your subscription). For most subscriptions, the subscription will automatically renew at the end of the initial subscription period, and will continue to automatically renew at the end of each renewal period, and you will be charged the associated subscription fees, unless We receive notification from you electing to discontinue your subscription before the cancellation deadline stated at under the “Subscription” Tab on your NBA Account Page. Please carefully review the renewal terms posted at the point of purchase.
Single game or partial game subscriptions (if offered and subject to any additional terms and conditions posted where the subscription is offered) begin when you place your order and expire after the period identified on the Service web page where the subscription is ordered. You must pay any associated subscription Fee in advance on the date of order for these subscriptions.
As indicated above, subject to this Agreement and your payment of the associated subscription Fees, certain subscriptions will continue until terminated as provided in this Agreement. This means, for example (and subject to this Agreement and your payment of the associated subscription Fees), that if you purchase any such subscription in a particular NBA season, your subscription will automatically renew and continue into subsequent NBA seasons (and you will be billed for and required to pay the associated subscription Fee for those seasons) unless We receive notification from you electing to discontinue your subscription before the cancellation deadline stated under the “Subscription” Tab on your NBA Account Page (or unless We elect, in Our sole discretion, to discontinue the Service or exercise Our other rights to terminate this Agreement and the applicable Service).
YOUR RIGHT TO NOTIFY US TO DISCONTINUE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
You may elect to discontinue your subscription by following the instructions provided in the Cancelling Your League Pass Page in the NBA Help Center to submit a request. Your election will be deemed to have been received one (1) business day after you so notify Us that you want to discontinue your subscription.
Your election to discontinue will take effect at the end of the then-current subscription period. You will not receive a refund for the then-current subscription period’s Fees. For example, if you have purchased a full season League Pass subscription and paid the entire Fees in advance, and during the current NBA season you elect to discontinue your subscription, your subscription will expire at the end of the current NBA season, but subscription Fees for the current NBA season will not be refunded. As another example, if you have purchased a monthly League Pass subscription and you subsequently elect to discontinue your subscription, your subscription will expire at the end of the current monthly billing period, but subscription Fees for the current monthly billing period will not be refunded.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. WE DO NOT GIVE FULL OR PARTIAL REFUNDS FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS THAT YOU HAVE PURCHASED REGARDLESS OF THE BASIS FOR THE REFUND REQUEST.
You also are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access the Service through an Internet access provider or other third-party service, including any mobile data charges or other fees charged to you by your wireless carrier if you access the Service via a mobile device. AS BETWEEN YOU AND US, YOU, AND NOT US, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR MEANS OF PAYMENT (E.G., CREDIT CARD OR PAYPAL ACCOUNT) BY A THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
Your subscription to the Service is subject to territorial restrictions. The Service may only be used and/or accessed from the territories We determine (which currently exclude the People’s Republic of China (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan)). Blackout restrictions may apply to a Service depending on the date of the applicable game, your location and local, national and international broadcast exclusivities. You may therefore be unable to view certain games via a Service from some locations, including locations within the United States. Please go to the Blackouts Page in the NBA Help Center to learn more about these restrictions. You agree that you will not use any Service if you are located outside of the allowable territories or in an area where blackout restrictions apply. IF YOU CIRCUMVENT, OR ATTEMPT TO CIRCUMVENT, ANY BLACKOUT RESTRICTION OR OTHER USE RESTRICTION: YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE TERMINATION AND A CHARGE OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00) FOR EARLY TERMINATION; AND YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL ACTION.
Your system may need to meet certain minimum requirements in order for you to be able to utilize each Service (“Minimum System Requirements”). You are solely responsible for ensuring that your system meets the Minimum System Requirements and for any costs associated with this. For more information about Minimum System Requirements please see the Minimum System Requirements Page in the NBA Help Center.
