Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Pro Leagues Additional Terms of Service
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Welcome to Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Pro Leagues ("Fantasy Football Pro Leagues" or the "Service"), owned and operated by Yahoo. Yahoo offers Fantasy Football Pro Leagues to you subject to these Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Pro Leagues Additional Terms of Service ("Additional Terms of Service") (which supplement the Yahoo Terms of Service ("TOS"), located at https://policies.yahoo.com/us/en/yahoo/terms/utos/index.htm, hereby incorporated by reference); the Yahoo Fantasy Football Pro Leagues Official Rules ("Official Rules"), located at https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/proleagues_rules; and any other rules or guidelines that may be published by Yahoo on a periodic basis (all of which are hereby incorporated by reference and any of which may be updated by Yahoo from time to time) (collectively, the "Agreement"). Capitalized terms not defined in these Additional Terms of Service have the meanings ascribed to them in the TOS.
ANY PARTICIPATION IN FANTASY FOOTBALL PRO LEAGUES WILL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. YOU ARE SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION RIGHTS AS DETAILED BELOW AND IN THE OFFICIAL RULES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN FANTASY FOOTBALL PRO LEAGUES.
YAHOO ID REQUIREMENT
To participate in Fantasy Football Pro Leagues, you must have a valid Yahoo ID to store your registration data ("Registration Data"), among other things. If you do not have a Yahoo ID, you will be prompted to sign up for a free one before completing the registration process for Fantasy Football Pro Leagues. Please ensure that your contact information is accurate, up-to-date, and complete. This information is mandatory if you wish to be eligible to win and collect prizes. A user who has not provided valid registration information will automatically be deemed ineligible and will not be considered for a prize. A valid PayPal account is also required to receive and collect a prize.
Please note that teams may only be played under the Yahoo ID with which they were created, and may not be transferred to another Yahoo ID or played by another person. Also, you may not share an account with another person or allow another user to play under your Yahoo ID. Likewise, you may not use the Service on behalf of someone without a Yahoo ID, or that is ineligible to participate in the Service. As a rule, each participant (“entrant”) is allowed to play under one Yahoo ID. There may be unique cases where Yahoo may allow entrants to play under a second Yahoo ID. These cases will be reviewed by Yahoo on a case-by-case basis. You are not permitted to play using an additional Yahoo ID without explicit and written consent from Yahoo after your case has been reviewed. It is at Yahoo’s sole discretion and judgment to determine whether multiple Yahoo IDs belong to the same entrant. If you are found to be participating in the Service using more than one Yahoo ID without explicit and written consent from Yahoo, such penalties may include, but are not limited to, disqualification from using the Service and/or any other Yahoo Services.
For the 2017 Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Pro Leagues season, payment of an entry fee of $20.00, $50.00, $100.00, or $250.00 (depending on the service selected) is required to register a team (an "Entry Fee").
Fantasy Football Pro Leagues consists of a series of individual leagues, each requiring 10 participating players to be eligible to draft (each, an "Individual League"). Each Individual League is a separate skill contest, and Yahoo awards prizes in connection with each Individual League. Please note that you must meet all eligibility requirements and otherwise comply with the Official Rules to be eligible to win a prize. In particular, due to restrictions in state law, residents of Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nevada and Washington are not eligible to participate in Fantasy Football Pro Leagues. Other eligibility restrictions apply, as described in the Official Rules.
Your Entry Fee(s) for Fantasy Football Pro Leagues give(s) you access to the Service from the time you sign up through the end of the National Football League's current regular season. The payment method that you provide as part of your Registration Data will automatically and immediately be billed for your Entry Fee(s). All currency references are in U.S. dollars. If your Individual League does not reach 10 participating players prior to the start time of the draft or if you withdraw your participation in your Individual League at least 72 hours before the start time of the draft, Yahoo will refund the amount paid for your Fantasy Football Pro Leagues team to your Yahoo Sports Fantasy Wallet account. Withdrawals from the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Wallet will be deposited directly into your PayPal account, or such other means as Yahoo determines in its sole discretion. Please review the PayPal User Agreement for more information.
Please note that, except as described above, your payment for Fantasy Football Pro Leagues is non-refundable and non-transferable. You may not cancel your Fantasy Football Pro Leagues account before the end of the current regular season.
The Service is available for individuals aged 18 years or older, or the age of legal majority in the individual's state of legal residence, whichever is greater.
