Fees and Payment Terms

Some features on the Services require the payment of a fee, such as the purchase of coins and subscriptions and to advance in games. You agree that you’ll provide accurate and complete payment information to us or the third-party payment provider used by us. You further agree to pay all fees and applicable taxes incurred on your account. We may revise the pricing for any part of the Services at any time. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes due and payable. We may, from time to time, modify, amend, or supplement our fees and fee-billing methods, and such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting in these Terms or elsewhere on our websites or applications. If you fail to pay any fees you owe to us or we have to refund someone due to unauthorized use of a payment made from your account, we may suspend or terminate your account.

Subject to applicable law, any applicable fees and other charges for fee-based Services are payable in advance and are not refundable in whole or in part except as expressly provided in these Terms.

Coins purchased on the Services have no cash value. fubar can expire your coins one year after their purchase, or if you received coins for free, one year after such receipt. Please use your coins within one year of purchase or receipt without purchase. fubar will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify users of any unused coins in their account before they expire. Subject to applicable law, fubar will have no liability for unused coins remaining in a user’s account one year after purchase or receipt without purchase. Subject to applicable law, there are no refunds for expired coins. We may offer subscription plans for the use of our Services. You will be presented with the subscription options and features, the amount of the associated fees, and whether the subscription is recurring prior to processing the transaction.

Fees for some of our subscription plans are auto-renewing on a recurring basis. You hereby authorize recurring charges to the payment method that you provide to us. We will bill your payment method upon your initial purchase (or at the end of a free trial if applicable) and on a recurring basis at the beginning of your new renewal period. You agree that fubar will not be responsible for any expenses that you may incur resulting from overdrawing your bank account or exceeding your credit limit as a result of an automatic charge made under these Terms. You are responsible for letting us know immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your payment card or login credentials. You may cancel your recurring subscription at any time by editing your user choices associated with your account profile (i.e., toggling to "off" the selection for auto-renewal).

fubar uses third parties not affiliated with us to process payments. fubar’s relationship with such third parties is contractual in nature, as each such third party is a third-party vendor to fubar, and they are not subject to fubar’s direction or control; thus, the relationships are not, and should not be construed as, one of fiduciaries, franchisors-franchisees, agents-principals, employers-employees, partners, joint venturers or the like. You agree that the third party processors are solely responsible for controlling, handling, processing, or fulfilling purchases processed through its systems.  You may be subject to additional terms of use and/or privacy policies of the third party processor when you purchase our Services.

From time to time we may offer free trials to, or introductory pricing for, the Services. These offers are available to you only if you have not previously been a subscriber to subscriber content. If you respond to a free trial or introductory pricing offer but do not qualify, we reserve the right to reject your order.

You agree to keep your account and payment information current at all times.  To make changes to your payment or account information, please contact us at support@fubar.com or make changes in your account settings.

Dispute Resolution

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH FUBAR AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

Binding Arbitration. You agree that to the fullest extent permitted by law all disputes, claims, suits, or controversies arising out of or in any way connected with these Terms and the use of the Services (collectively, "Disputes"), shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the AAA, as modified by these Terms. There shall be one (or if either party so requests, then by a panel of three arbitrators) appointed in accordance with the Rules, and you waive your rights to have any and all Disputes resolved in a court; provided, however, that this agreement to arbitrate does not extend to Disputes in which either party seeks (i) injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, (ii) the right to pursue enforcement actions through applicable U.S. federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, or (iii) injunctive relief in a U.S. court of law. The language of the arbitration shall be English. The arbitration proceedings and decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be kept confidential (and may not be disclosed) by the parties or the arbitrator(s), except to the extent necessary to compel any award made by the arbitrator(s).

No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. 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 proceeding. There will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.

The location of the arbitration shall be in Redwood City, California.

Authority of Arbitrator(s). As limited by the AAA Rules and these Terms, the arbitrator(s) will have (i) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (ii) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator(s) do not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms, or to award punitive damages or any other damages that are not compensatory. The arbitrator(s) may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.

Jurisdiction. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, to the fullest extent permitted by law you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California for the purpose of litigating all such disputes. You also waive your rights to a jury trial.

Time Limit for Claims. Any claim under these Terms must be brought within one (1) year after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. You agree to the admissibility of computer records and electronic evidence in any dispute herein.

Severability of Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. In the event the provisions in this Dispute Resolution Section are held invalid or unenforceable, then this Dispute Resolution Section, in its entirety, will cease to apply, and the parties will not be obligated to arbitrate any Disputes.
