SumoFox provides three different leagues that you may enter:
· The amateur league is a fantasy contest where you can enter your team for free (the “Amateur League”).
· The pro league is a fantasy contest where the entry fee will be listed in US dollars (the “Pro League”). When you select to participate in the Pro League and complete the entry process, the listed amount of US dollars will be debited from your SumoFox account.
· The mock league is a contest with a head-to-head simulation tool which is free to enter (the “Mock League”, any contest available in the Amateur League, Pro League or Mock League is a “Contest”).
All payments are final. No refunds will be issued. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed submitted by the person in whose name the account was registered.
SumoFox reserves the right to move entrants from the Contests they have entered to substantially similar Contests in certain situations determined by SumoFox in its sole and absolute discretion.
4.2 Conditions of Participation
By entering a Contest, you agree to be bound by the Agreements and the decisions of SumoFox, which shall be final and binding in all respects.

· change or terminate all or any part of the Services, including cancelling of any Contest in SumoFox’s sole and absolute discretion without restriction;
· restrict or terminate your access to all or any part of the Services; or

SumoFox, at its sole and absolute discretion, may disqualify you from a Contest, refuse to award benefits or prizes and require the return of any prizes, or suspend or terminate your account if you engage in conduct SumoFox deems, in its sole and absolute discretion, to be improper.

· obtaining other entrants information and spamming other entrants;

· accessing any restricted portion of the Website you are not permitted to access with your account or otherwise.
You further acknowledge that the forfeiture and/or return of any prize shall in no way prevent SumoFox from pursuing criminal or civil proceedings in connection with such conduct. SumoFox reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies available at law for any violation of a criminal and/or civil law.
Where legal, you consent to the use of you name, voice, and likeness/photograph in and in connection with the development, production, distribution and/or exploitation of any Contest, the Services or the Website. Your permission given herein is hereby acknowledged to constitute written consent under applicable law, including, without limitation, New York Civil Rights Law Section 50. Winners of any Contest agree that from the date of notification by SumoFox of their status as a potential winner and continuing until such time when SumoFox informs them that they no longer need to do so that they will make themselves reasonably available to SumoFox for publicity, advertising, and promotion activities.
You understand and agree that SumoFox is not responsible for: any incorrect, invalid or inaccurate entry information; human errors; postal delays/postage due mail; technical malfunctions; failures, including, without limitation, public utility, Internet or telephone outages; omissions, interruptions, deletions or defects of any telephone system or network, computer online systems, data, computer equipment, servers, providers, or software (including, but not limited to software and operating systems that do not permit an entrant to participate in a Contest), including, without limitation, any injury or damage to any entrant’s or any other person’s computer or video equipment relating to or resulting from participation in a Contest; inability to access the Website, or any web pages that are part of or related to the Website; theft, tampering, destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, entries and/or images of any kind; data that is processed late or incorrectly or is incomplete or lost due to telephone, postal issues, computer or electronic malfunction or traffic congestion on telephone lines or transmission systems, or the Internet, or any service provider’s facilities, or any phone site or website or for any other reason whatsoever; typographical, printing or other errors, or any combination thereof.
4.3 Contest of Skill
Contests offered on the Website are contests of skill. Winners are determined by the criteria set out in each Contest’s rules or described in the documentation associated with the Contest. From all entries received for each Contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant sports information and fantasy sports rules to accumulate the most points according to the corresponding scoring rules. The Website and Contests may not be used for any form of illicit betting or gambling.
4.4 Contest Results
Contest results are based on the final statistics and scoring results at the completion of the last professional sports game of each individual Contest. The scoring results of a Contest will not be changed regardless of any official statistics or scoring adjustments made by the leagues at later times or dates, except in SumoFox’s sole and absolute discretion.
Scoring is gathered from fantasydata.com and is detailed in our FAQ.
4.5 Prizes and Promotions
For any Contests in the Amateur League and Mock League, contest winners can earn Beast Points that may be exchanged for different prizes as set out in the prize table list. For Contests in the Pro League, the prizes for each Contest are set out in the Contest’s associated prize table list.
Once Contest results are reviewed and graded, prizes are awarded by 12:00 NOON Eastern Time on the following day except in circumstances where technical failure or other reasons prevent such timely payout. Contest prizes are listed in SumoFox’s prize table list. Prizes won are added to the winning participant’s account balance.
In the event of a tie, a tiebreaker will be calculated to determine a winner. If two users have the same score, prizes will be awarded to the user who entered the contest first. Time is determined based on SumoFox’s internal data, as recorded by parse.com.
In the case of a 50/50 contest where the maximum number of entries is not filled, winners will be chosen out of the existing number of eligible entries. If the number of entries is an odd number, SumoFox will award prizes to the upper half of the entry pool.
Contest prize payouts will be published with the creation of each new Contest. Each Contest or promotion is governed by its own set of official rules. SumoFox encourages you to read such Contest and promotions Rules before participating.
No substitution or transfer of a prize is permitted. All taxes associated with the receipt or use of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner; provided, however, that SumoFox reserves all rights to withhold prizes pursuant to its interpretation of tax withholding laws that may be applicable. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of the Contest is challenged by any legal authority, SumoFox reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to determine whether or not to award or adjust such prizes. In all disputes arising out of the determination of the winner of the Contest, SumoFox is the sole judge and its actions are final and binding.
Entrants may withdraw their cash prize awards as well as cash deposits by using the “Withdrawal” option on the Website. Entrants may be requested to complete an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (unless prohibited by law) and/or appropriate tax forms and forms of identification including, but not limited to, (for U.S. prizewinners) W-9s with a U.S. prizewinner’s social security number, a copy of a driver’s license, proof of residence, and/or any information relating to payment/deposit accounts as reasonably requested by SumoFox in order to complete the withdrawal of prizes. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in disqualification and forfeiture of any prizes. Any withdrawal requests, after approved by SumoFox, will be paid out through PayPal, unless otherwise requested. SumoFox will only release withdrawals to a different credit card or other payment method other than that which was used to make deposit(s) after the aggregate amount of such deposit(s) has already been released back to the credit card(s) or payment method(s) used for the deposit(s).
U.S. prizewinners will receive an IRS Form 1099 reflecting the final actual value of any prize valued at $600 or more.
4.5.1 Deposit Bonus

14.1 Governing Law
Any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to the Agreements, the breach thereof, or any use of the Website and/or the Services (including all commercial transactions conducted through the Website) (“Claims”), except for claims filed in a small claims court that proceed on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis, shall be settled by binding arbitration before and under the auspices of one of the following centers, to be agreed upon by you and SumoFox, Roundtable Mediation & Arbitration Services, Aptus Conflict Solutions Inc., and Ottawa Dispute Resolution Group (the “Arbitration Center”) in accordance with its International Commercial Arbitration Rules
In agreeing to arbitrate all Claims, you and SumoFox waive all rights to a trial by jury in any action or proceeding involving any Claim. Arbitration will take place in Toronto, Ontario, and you and SumoFox agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any court in Toronto, Ontario, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. You and SumoFox agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported, class or representative proceeding. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in the courts in the Province of Ontario or the Federal Court of Canada to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
