Dynasty Depot Terms of Service
Last Updated: September 9, 2020
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THIS AGREEMENT IS SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION RIGHTS AS DETAILED IN SECTION 26
The following Terms of Service (“Terms”) set forth the terms and conditions of the agreement between you, an individual user (“You”) and Dynasty Depot Sports LLC (“Dynasty Depot™”) in conjunction with Dynasty Depot™’s auction services for already-drafted dynasty fantasy sports teams (“the Service”) through our website or app (collectively, the “Site”), and govern your rights and responsibilities with respect to your use of the Service.
Dynasty Depot™ is a marketplace that allows users to offer and sell (in this capacity, “Seller”) and buy (in this capacity, “Buyer”) already-drafted fantasy sports teams participating in dynasty leagues (“Team”). The actual contract for sale is directly between Seller and Buyer. Dynasty Depot™ does not own the Teams sold on the Site. Dynasty Depot™ is not a traditional auctioneer. Any guidance we provide as part of the Service, such as pricing, listing and sourcing, is solely informational (without any warranty as to accuracy) and you may decide to follow it or not. Also, while we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through the Service, Dynasty Depot™ has no control over and does not guarantee: the existence, quality, or legality of the Team advertised; the likelihood of winning or any specific outcomes of the Team advertised; the truth or accuracy of users’ content or listings; the ability of Sellers to sell any Team; the ability of Buyers to pay for any Team; or that a Buyer or Seller will actually complete a transaction. Dynasty Depot™ shall have sole and absolute discretion in determining its auction rules and selecting winners of these auctions. Further, Dynasty Depot™ shall be the sole arbiter of disputes over who wins each auction.

Further, you agree not to submit comments discussing or linking to affiliate programs, multi-level marketing schemes, personal business ventures, or off-topic content; not to post, email, transmit, upload, or otherwise make available any material that contains software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed or functioning to interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment; and not to use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the site for any purpose (except for RSS feed access) without our express written permission.
Additionally, you agree that you will not: use the Service if you are not able to form legally binding contracts (for example, if you are under 18 years old) or are temporarily or indefinitely suspended from using the Service, or are a person with whom transactions are prohibited under economic or trade sanctions; fail to pay for any Team purchased by you, unless you have a valid reason as set out elsewhere in these Terms, for example, where the Seller has materially changed the Team’s description after you bid, a clear typographical error is made, or you cannot contact the Seller; fail to deliver any Team sold by you, unless you have a valid reason as set out elsewhere in these Terms, for example, the Buyer fails to comply with the posted terms in your listing or you cannot contact the Buyer; or manipulate the price of any Team or interfere with any other user’s listings.
When selling a Team, the Seller must set a price for which they are willing to sell their Team. A Seller may modify (e.g. raise or lower the sales price) or delete their listing at any time until the Team has been sold. By listing a Team for sale, a Seller is making a binding offer to sell that Team to a Buyer who wins the auction. When a Buyer accepts a Seller’s offer by purchasing their Team through the Site, the Seller is contractually obligated to deliver that exact Team for the winning bid amount and within the required delivery timeframe.
When purchasing on a Team, the Buyer is responsible for reading the complete listing before placing a bid in any action. If a Buyer’s bid is accepted, the Buyer is entering into a binding contract with the Seller to purchase the Team. Additional terms communicated to the Buyer by the Seller may apply. Payment is remitted to Dynasty Depot™ and distributed to the Seller in accordance with these Terms. All sales are final. You cannot change or cancel a bid once it has been accepted.
Offering to buy or sell a Team outside of Dynasty Depot™ is strictly prohibited. Buyers and Sellers cannot share contact information, including email addresses and phone numbers, prior to completing a transaction on Dynasty Depot™. Specifically, you agree that you will not: engage in any action with a user on the Site designed to complete or facilitate a transaction outside of Dynasty Depot™; share or request direct contact information prior to completing a sale (except where a specific auction allows the Seller to provide their email address or phone number for the purpose of answering a question related to the Team); refer to or promote external websites that facilitate sales outside of Dynasty Depot™; use contact information obtained through a Dynasty Depot™ action to offer to buy or sell a Team outside of Dynasty Depot™; list a Team and then mention or link to the Team for sale outside of Dynasty Depot™; or host Team descriptions outside of Dynasty Depot™. Buyers and Sellers should complete Team purchases on Dynasty Depot™ in order to receive any protections offered by Dynasty Depot™.
If we believe that you are violating our policy prohibiting offers to buy or sell outside of Dynasty Depot™, you may be subject to a range of actions, including limits on your buying and selling privileges, restrictions on listings and account features, suspension of your account, application of fees, recovery of expenses for policy monitoring and enforcement, and legal action against you for unjust enrichment. If you are a Seller and you offer or reference your contact information or ask a Buyer for their contact information in the context of buying or selling outside of Dynasty Depot™, you may be liable to pay a fee applicable to the sale of the Team, even if the Team does not sell.
Finally, you agree that you will not: (1) take any action that imposes, or may impose, in our sole discretion, an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (2) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Site or any activities conducted on the Site; or (3) bypass any measures Dynasty Depot™ may use to prevent or restrict access to the Site.

ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT:
Any controversy or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in any way relating to the Terms, with the exception of those controversies or claims specifically excluded in the following paragraph, shall be settled by a single arbitrator from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in connection with AAA rules. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Any such arbitration shall be held within a fifty mile radius of Philadelphia, PA.
You and Dynasty Depot™ agree that the following types of disputes are not subject to this binding arbitration provision: (1) any disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of either any of your intellectual property rights or Dynasty Depot™’s intellectual property rights; (2) any claim for injunctive relief; and (3) any type of dispute that is not eligible for arbitration based upon the applicable law of New York as governs these Terms.
The Commercial Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at +1.800.778.7879.
In addition, you and Dynasty Depot™ 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 DYNASTY DEPOT™ 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.
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The notice must be sent within 30 days of your first use of the Service. Otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, DYNASTY DEPOT™ also will not be bound by them.
DYNASTY DEPOT™ will provide 60-days’ notice of any changes to this section. Changes will become effective on the 60th day, and will apply prospectively only to any claims arising after the 60th day.
For any dispute not subject to arbitration, or where no election to arbitrate has been made, you and Dynasty Depot™ agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the federal and state courts located within a fifty mile radius of Philadelphia, PA. You further agree to accept service of process by mail, and hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.
WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY AND TERMS
The failure of Dynasty Depot™ to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
The Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you under any circumstances, but may be assigned by Dynasty Depot™ without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of these Terms shall be deemed void. In addition, you agree that to the fullest extent permissible by law, no third party shall have any rights to bring claims arising out of these Terms on your behalf or to claim for themselves rights that are afforded to you under this agreement.
Except as otherwise described herein, you agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship of any kind exists between you and Dynasty Depot™, and that no such relationship is created or established by these Terms. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BY SUBMITTING USER CONTENT TO DYNASTY DEPOT™, NO CONFIDENTIAL, FIDUCIARY, CONTRACTUALLY IMPLIED OR OTHER RELATIONSHIP IS CREATED BETWEEN YOU AND DYNASTY DEPOT™.
