THE PRO MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTION TERMS
These SLS Terms contain additional provisions that apply if you subscribe to the Pro Membership.
The Pro Membership requires payment before you can access it. If you choose to subscribe to the Pro Membership, please review this Section. References to Services throughout the Terms include the Pro Membership.
To subscribe to the Pro Membership, you will first need to be a registered user of the SportsLine Site. Once registered you may access the subscription page of the Pro Membership found at https://sportsline.com/payment. When you provide payment information, as part of your subscription you represent and warrant that the information you provide is accurate, that you are authorized to use the Payment Method (as defined below) provided, and that you will notify us of changes to the payment information. We reserve the right to utilize third party credit card updating services to obtain current expiration dates on credit/debit cards. Subject to compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Terms, including the SLS Terms, during the term of your Pro Membership subscription, a user who has purchased and paid for a Pro Membership subscription will have a limited, revocable, non-transferable and non-exclusive personal license for a user’s personal access to view the subscription Content via up to four (4) unique devices owned by the user; provided, however, that the subscription Content may only be viewed by one (1) of the user’s designated devices at any one time. User will use their username and password to access the Pro Membership subscription Content.
User shall: (a) be responsible for the security and/or use of his/her username and password; (b) not disclose that information to any person or entity; (c) not permit any other person or entity to use his/her username or password; and (d) use his/her Pro Membership subscription in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Terms, including the SLS Terms. CBSi reserves the right to deny, suspend or revoke access to the Pro Membership Content, in whole or in part, if CBSi believes a user is in breach of the Terms, including the SLS Terms, or is otherwise using or accessing the Pro Membership Content in a manner inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this SLS Terms. Users acknowledge and agree that CBSi is providing access to and use of the Content to multiple customers and those services are non-exclusive and non-transferable by user. You can access and edit specific details regarding your subscription to the Pro Membership, including information concerning your credit card or other available payment method (“Payment Method“), on the SportsLine Site at any time by clicking on your name, which appears at the top of each page of the site when you are logged in, and clicking the “My Account” link in the drop-down menu that will appear.
Users must be 18 years of age (or the applicable age of majority in the jurisdiction where you reside) or over in order to subscribe to the Pro Membership. By subscribing to a Pro Membership, you acknowledge that you are 18 years of age (or the applicable age of majority in the jurisdiction where you reside) or over and that by using the Pro Membership, you may be exposed to Content that you find objectionable. It is your sole responsibility to determine whether the Content in the Pro Membership is suitable for you.
AUTOMATIC RENEWAL BILLING TERMS: By providing Payment Method information for your Pro Membership subscription, you are agreeing to pay a subscription fee, that will automatically renew and be charged to your Payment Method at the then current rate unless you unsubscribe as specified herein, and any applicable taxes and service fees (“Fees“) in connection with your use of the Pro Membership. The Fees will be charged to your Payment Method automatically at the beginning of your subscription period, and at the beginning of each renewal subscription period thereafter on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your current subscription period unless you cancel your subscription or your account or the Pro Membership is suspended or terminated pursuant to the Terms, including the SLS Terms. The renewal subscription period will be the same length as your initial subscription period unless otherwise disclosed to you at the time of sale. The rate for the renewal subscription period will be the then current subscription-rate. Please note that in connection with monthly subscriptions, if applicable, if your subscription begins after the 28th day of a month, then in any subsequent month in which that day does not occur, CBSi will charge your Payment Method on approximately the last day of such month. For example, if you started your subscription on January 31st, your next payment date will be approximately February 28th. The Fees charged to your Payment Method may vary from subscription period to subscription period due to changes in your subscription plan or applicable taxes, and you authorize CBSi to charge your Payment Method for these amounts. CBSi reserves the right to change the pricing of subscription to the Pro Membership at any time. In the event of a price change, CBSi will post the new pricing in the SportsLine Site and attempt to notify you in advance by sending an email to the address you registered with (or subsequently changed) for your account. You agree that by providing you with notice through an electronic communication from us and via all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically, CBSi satisfies any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. If you do not wish to accept a price change, you may cancel your Pro Membership subscription as described below, otherwise you will be deemed to have consented to the price change and authorize CBSi to charge the new Fees to your Payment Method. If there are any discrepancies in billing, you hereby waive your right to dispute such discrepancies if you do not notify CBSi within 60 days after they first appear on an account statement. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL INTERNET ACCESS CHARGES. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER FOR INFORMATION ON POSSIBLE INTERNET DATA USAGE CHARGES. IF YOU ACCESS THE SERVICES VIA A WIRELESS DEVICE, YOU MAY BE CHARGED MESSAGE AND/OR DATA RATES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF YOUR SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH YOUR WIRELESS CARRIER. YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR WIRELESS CARRIER FOR POSSIBLE CHARGES RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.
As described further below, even if you cancel your subscription to the Pro Membership during a subscription period, you will not receive a refund for any portion of the Fees for the remainder of the current subscription period. In rare circumstances, we may provide a credit, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our subscribers (“Credits“). The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole discretion. The provision of Credits in one instance does not entitle you to Credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide Credits in the future, under any circumstance.
If you fail to pay any Fees when due, as a result of expiration of your Payment Method, insufficient funds, or otherwise: (1) you will remain liable for all such amounts, as well as any costs that CBSi incurs in collecting any amounts you fail to pay in connection with the Pro Membership, including attorney and collections fees; (2) you authorize CBSi to continue charging your Payment Method, as your Payment Method information may be updated as described above; and (3) we may suspend or terminate your subscription. Changing your Payment Method information may affect the day of your subscription period renewal. Upon the expiration or termination of these SLS Terms for any reason, user’s access to, and use of, the subscription Content will terminate.
From time to time, promotional codes may be available, including those provided as part of a third-party promotion. Promotional codes may be redeemed as described in the specifics of the promotion. Promotional codes can only be used once, cannot be redeemed for cash, and may be combined with other offers, subject to certain restrictions as determined by CBSi, in its sole discretion. If you received a promotional code through an offer by a third party, additional conditions may apply. Any promotional codes obtained through unlawful or unauthorized means shall be deemed null and void.
CBSi reserves the right to update and change the Pro Membership, including its features and the selection of Content available in the Pro Membership, at any time. In addition, CBSi reserves the right to test various aspects of the Pro Membership. CBSi reserve the right to, and by using our Services you agree that we may, include you in or exclude you from these tests without notice. In the event of material changes to the Pro Membership CBSi will post notice in the SportsLine Site.
As part of the Pro Membership, CBSi may send you emails regarding the Content or the Pro Membership from time to time. You agree that CBSi may send you these types of emails to the email address that you provided when registering. Because these emails are necessary for you to receive the Pro Membership, you agree that you will receive these emails even if you have opted out of receiving other email from CBSi. If you do not want to receive these types of emails, you may cancel your subscription to the Pro Membership at any time as provided in these SLS Terms.
