Acclaim Sports & Entertainment, Inc. (“ASE,” “We,” or “Us”) provides an online service that gives bars and restaurants, as well as similar commercial establishments (“User,” “Users,” or “You”) the opportunity to select from various offerings of on-demand and live sports-related programming, (collectively, “Content”).

We may change these Terms from time to time. You should look at these Terms regularly. If We make material changes, We will notify You in accordance with applicable law.
ASE grants You a non-exclusive limited license to use the Service, including accessing and viewing the Content on a streaming-only basis for commercial purposes as set forth in these Terms.
You may not directly, indirectly, or by using any device, software, Internet site, web-based service, or other means, remove, alter, bypass, avoid, interfere with, or circumvent any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices, including through the use of geo-filtering mechanisms.

You may not incorporate the Content into, or stream or retransmit the Content via, any hardware or software application or make it available via frames or in-line links unless expressly permitted by ASE in writing. Furthermore, You may not create, recreate, distribute or advertise an index of any portion of the Content unless permitted by ASE in writing. You may not build a for-profit, not-for-profit or non-profit business utilizing the Content. The Content covered by these restrictions includes, without limitation, any text, graphics, layout, interface, logos, photographs, and audio and video materials.

IN NO EVENT SHALL ASE OR ITS AFFILIATES, SUCCESSORS, AND ASSIGNS, AND EACH OF THEIR RESPECTIVE INVESTORS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, DISTRIBUTORS AND CONTENT PROGRAMMERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “ASE PARTIES”), BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE USE OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING ANY INFORMATION, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICE ADVERTISED IN, OBTAINED ON, OR PROVIDED THROUGH ANY ACCESS POINT), WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHER THEORY, EVEN IF THE ASE PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.
CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
NOTHING IN THESE TERMS SHALL AFFECT ANY NON- WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT APPLY TO YOU.
WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY, IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES AND CAUSES OF ACTION WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO US, IF ANY, FOR ACCESSING OR PARTICIPATING IN ANY ACTIVITY RELATED TO USE OF THE SERVICE OR $50 (WHICHEVER IS LESS).
YOU AGREE TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS THE ASE PARTIES FROM AND AGAINST ALL LIABILITIES, CLAIMS, DAMAGES, EXPENSES (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND COSTS), AND OTHER LOSSES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO YOUR BREACH OR
ALLEGED BREACH OF THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR CONTENT. ASE RESERVES THE RIGHT, AT OUR OWN EXPENSE (WITH THE RIGHT TO SEEK REIMBURSEMENT FROM YOU AND/OR A THIRD-PARTY), TO EMPLOY SEPARATE COUNSEL AND ASSUME THE EXCLUSIVE DEFENSE AND CONTROL OF ANY MATTER OTHERWISE SUBJECT TO INDEMNIFICATION BY YOU.
Arbitration of Claims and Class Action Waiver
Please read the following section carefully because it requires You to waive Your right to a jury trial and class action litigation, and instead, to individually arbitrate certain disputes and claims with ASE. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this agreement.
You and ASE waive Your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court.
If we cannot reach an agreed upon solution for any dispute for at least 30 days, You agree that any and all claims that either of Us may have arising out of or relating to: (i) these Terms (including formation, performance, or breach of them, and including the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision); (ii) any aspect of our relationship with each other; and (iii) use of the Services, must be resolved through binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) using its Commercial Arbitration Rules, as may be altered by these Terms. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.
You and ASE agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to You and ASE and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative or consolidated proceeding.
All arbitration hearings will be held in New York, New York before a single arbitrator. If your claim is for $25,000 or less, we agree that ASE may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as provided for in the Expedited Procedures in the Commercial Arbitration Rules. If your claim exceeds $25,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Commercial Arbitration Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The arbitrator is not authorized to award punitive damages, or any other types of damages that are not actual damages. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is lesser than the value of ASE’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then you will be responsible for ASE’s reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator may
award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
The arbitrators, ASE, and You will maintain the confidentiality of any proceedings, including but not limited to, any and all information gathered, prepared, and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute therein. The arbitrators will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard that confidentiality.
You and ASE agree that for any arbitration, the initiating party will pay the associated filing fees. For any arbitration fees thereafter, the parties agree to evenly split the fees, provided that such fees and costs will be recoverable by the prevailing party as part of the arbitration. You and ASE agree that the state courts of the State of New York and the United States federal courts, sitting in New York County, New York, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim first arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that You and ASE will not have the right to assert the claim.
If any portion of this arbitration section is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason: (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the arbitration section or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the arbitration section; and (3) to the extent that any claims proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis notwithstanding these Terms, such claims must be litigated in a state or federal court located in New York County, New York, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any pending individual User claims in arbitration.
Software and the transmission of applicable technical data, if any, in connection with the Service are subject to export controls. You agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding software and the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which You reside.
Choice of Law and Forum
These Terms are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law. To the extent that the arbitration provision outlined above is not
applicable, You and ASE agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in New York County in the State of New York.
If We fail to act in response to a violation of these Terms, You should not assume that We do not object to the violation or even that We are aware of it. ASE’s decision to delay exercising or enforcing any right or remedy under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or remedy. Even if ASE acts in a way that appears to You to be inconsistent with these Terms, ASE’s action shall not be deemed a waiver or constructive amendment of these Terms.
Integration, Amendment, and Severability
Please note that these Terms constitute the entire legal agreement between You and ASE that govern Your use of the Service (including Your use of Content), and completely replace any prior agreements between You and ASE in relation to the Service. These Terms operate to the fullest extent permissible by law. If any provision of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, You and ASE agree that the provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
From time to time, We may communicate with You about the Service and these Terms electronically (e.g., emails to Your registered email address, texts, faxes, notices on the ASE Site and other applications or locations). You consent to receive electronic communications from ASE and further agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, and other communications that We send to You electronically will satisfy any applicable legal notification requirements.
