Your Account and Membership
Eligibility. Our Service is available to anyone who is at least 18 years old. You represent that you are at least 18 years of age. Additional eligibility requirements for a particular portion of our Service may be set by any member who has the ability to moderate or manage that portion of our Service. For example, the eligibility requirements for a particular event may be set by the organizers of that group.
Suspension of Your Account. We may modify, suspend or terminate your account or access to the Service if, in our sole discretion, we determine that you have violated this Agreement, including any of the policies or guidelines that are part of this Agreement, that it is in the best interest of the our community of users, or to protect our brand or Service. We also may remove accounts of members who are inactive for an extended period of time.
Account Information and Security. When you create an account, you provide us with some basic information, including an email address and a password. Keep your email address and other account information current and accurate. Also, you agree to maintain the security and confidentiality of your password (or else we may need to disable your account). You alone are responsible for anything that happens from your failure to maintain that security and confidentiality, such as by sharing your account credentials with others. If someone is using your password, notify us immediately by emailing email@example.com.
Fees, Payments, and Offers
Fees Charged by PickUP. Use of some of the features on our Service is free, and we charge fees for other features. We may in the future implement a new fee, or modify an existing fee, for certain current or future features of our Service. If we implement a new or modified fee, we will give you advanced notice such as by posting changes on our Service or sending you an email. You agree to pay those fees and any associated taxes for your continued use of the applicable service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees and all transactions are in U.S. dollars. All fees are exclusive of applicable federal, state, local, or other taxes. Organizer subscriptions are non-transferable.
Fees Charged by Third-Party Sponsors. Third-Party Sponsors may impose fees related to particular portions of the Service, such as single-event services or ongoing events and league fees. The decision to charge fees and the amount of those fees is at the discretion of those organizers. Sponsors may have their own refund policies. Payments made to organizers via the Service are made through a third-party payment service provider. If a member pays a fee to an organizer via the Service, the member authorizes the organizer (and the organizer’s applicable payment service provider) to charge the designated payment method for the total amount of the fees, including any applicable taxes and other charges. Certain types of fees charged by organizers may be billed on a recurring basis. If billed on a recurring basis, you authorize the organizer to charge the applicable fee to the designated payment method. You may cancel auto-renewal at any time.
Payments to PickUP. Sponsors are responsible for paying subscription and any other applicable fees to PickUP on time and through our approved payment methods. Sponsors who allow their subscription to lapse are subject to removal as a Sponsor associated with their account. If we terminate, suspend, or remove your account in connection with violation of this Agreement, we are not obligated to refund any sponsor subscription fees paid to PickUP. You may only pay sponsor fees to PickUP using a valid payment method acceptable to us, as specified via the Service. You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the payment method you designate via the Service. You authorize us (and our designated third-party payment processors) to charge your designated payment method for the total amount of any fees you owe to PickUP, including any applicable taxes and other charges. If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is otherwise not acceptable to us, your payment may be suspended or cancelled. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our payment processors to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment has already been requested or received. We also may issue refunds, or instruct our payment processors to issue refunds, in accordance with this Agreement.
Automatic Subscription Renewals. Fees for certain aspects of our Service may be billed on either a recurring basis or on a one-time basis. If billed on a recurring basis, the fees are payable in advance of the applicable period specified via the Service with no refunds. We will automatically bill you for each renewal period until cancellation. By purchasing any feature or other aspect of our Service for which we charge, you authorize us to keep your payment current by charging your credit card account (or any other means of payment used by you) the applicable fee. While you may cancel auto-renewal or cancel your subscription at any time, you won’t be issued a refund except in our sole discretion.
Free Trials. We may offer free trials of subscriptions and other products on our Service. We will inform you of the length of the free trial, your renewal period, and the date and amount of your first payment. After your free trial ends, your paid subscription will begin and we will automatically bill you for each renewal period until cancellation. You can cancel automatic subscription renewals at any time according to the terms and procedures described above.
Third Party Payment Processors. A sponsor that uses the Service to accept payments from other members, must comply with the terms and conditions of the third party provider of the applicable payment service used to receive the payment. PickUP does not provide those payment services, is not a party to your agreement with the applicable third-party provider, and will not be liable or responsible for your use of those third-party payment services.
Third Party Transactions. You may receive offers from third parties, such as discounts, sponsorships, or other benefits. PickUP is not involved in any dealings or payments between you and third parties, and these Terms of Service do not govern such transactions.

Informal Negotiations. To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to this Agreement (each a “Dispute” and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you are us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to another Party.
Arbitration Time for Filing. Any claim subject to arbitration must be filed within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim, or the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
Exceptions. You or PickUP may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Boone County, Kentucky or any U.S. county where you live or work. You or PickUP may seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in Boone County, Kentucky as necessary to protect the intellectual property rights of you or PickUP pending the completion of arbitration. PickUP may take action in court or arbitration to collect any fees or recover damages for, or to seek injunctive relief relating to, Service operations, or unauthorized use of our Service or intellectual property. Nothing in this Section 9 shall diminish PickUP’s right to modify, suspend or terminate your account or access to our Service under Section 2.2.
Restrictions. The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Your email must include your full name, residential address, the email address registered to your PickUP account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of arbitration. If you opt out according to this process, then Sections 9.2, 9.3, and 9.4 of this Agreement do not apply to you. This opt-out does not affect any other sections of this Agreement, such as Sections 9.4 (Exceptions), 9.5 (Restrictions), 11.3 (Governing Law), 11.4 (Judicial Forum), and 11.5 (Time for Filing).
Intellectual Property of PickUP. PickUP trademarks, logos, service marks, and service names are the intellectual property of PickUP.

Except as otherwise permitted by law, you agree not to use our intellectual property without our prior written consent.
Intellectual Property of Others. PickUP respects the intellectual property of others, and we expect our members to do the same. We may, in appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, remove or disable access to material that infringes on the intellectual property rights of others. We may also restrict or terminate access to our Service to those who we believe to be repeat infringers.

No Agency. No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and PickUP is intended or created by this Agreement.

Governing Law. This Agreement and the relationship between you and PickUP shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky without regard to its conflict of laws provisions, except as set forth in Section 9.
Judicial Forum. If our agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, or if you opt out of arbitration pursuant to Section 9.6, you and PickUP agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) must be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Boone County, Kentucky and you and PickUP agree to venue and personal jurisdiction in those courts.
Time for Filing. Any claim not subject to arbitration must be commenced within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim, or the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
No Waiver. A party’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision and does not waive any right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
Severance. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, you and PickUP nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
Termination. If we terminate your account or access to our Service, this Agreement terminates with respect to the member account that has been terminated.
