3.1 Description of the Service
Rep the Squad is a subscription service that provides our Members with access to a variety of sports jerseys and other Products made available by Rep the Squad for use by Members during the term of their membership. Members select and rank Products they wish to borrow through their "Locker" (which is accessed through the My Locker section of our website or mobile app), and Rep the Squad fulfills such requests based on such rankings and product availability and other factors, as set forth in these terms. Unless otherwise expressly provided in the particular subscription package for which a Member has subscribed, a subscription entitles Members to borrow one Product at a time. Members may retain a Product for as long as they wish during the term of their subscription, or may return and exchange a Product for different Product in their Locker (subject to availability) at any time during their subscription, provided their membership is in good standing and all Subscription Fees and other amounts due to Rep the Squad have been paid in full, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms. Members may also purchase Products from time to time from Rep the Squad as provided herein. All Products remain the property of Rep the Squad (or its vendors) unless purchased by Member in accordance with Section 3.5 below.
3.2 Subscription Fees and Payment Terms.
(a) Subscription Fees. In order to receive and use Products through the Service, you must create an account to become a Member and pay the applicable monthly subscription fee designated on our website for the subscription plan you choose (the "Subscription Fee"). When you create your account, you authorize Rep the Squad (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method on a recurring basis for the applicable Subscription Fee (and any applicable taxes) as set forth in these Terms. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account including for all Products borrowed under your account. Your payment method will be charged for the first month of your subscription when you create your account and will automatically be charged the Subscription Fee (and any applicable taxes) for subsequent months in advance, on a recurring basis, on or about the same day each month, except as set forth in Section 3.3 in connection with any pausing or the cancellation of your subscription. Subscription Fees exclude all federal, state and local taxes, GST, fees, customs, duties, levies and other governmental assessments, all of which shall be charged to your payment card in addition to your Subscription Fee or paid by you directly. Subscription Fees (and applicable taxes) are nonrefundable unless expressly provided otherwise in these Terms.
(b) Payment Method; Recurring Payments. When you create an account, you must provide us with a valid payment method and YOU AUTHORIZE REP THE SQUAD TO AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE SUCH PAYMENT METHOD FOR ALL AMOUNTS DUE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY RECURRING PAYMENTS FOR SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND ANY APPLICABLE FEES FOR LOST OR DAMAGED PRODUCTS, PURCHASES, AND LATE FEES. If the payment method we have on file for you at any time expires or otherwise becomes invalid or we are unable to process charges to such payment method, you agree to promptly provide to us with a substitute payment method.
(c) Late Payments. If any Subscription Fees or other amounts have become overdue due to any failure to provide a substitute payment method within ten (10) days of any notice by Rep the Squad, we also reserve the right to charge a late fee at the rate of one percent (1%) per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, until a substitute payment method is received. If the substitute payment method is not received within forty-five (45) days of such notice, then Rep the Squad may, in addition to its other rights, cancel or suspend your subscription immediately, with or without notice, and you will not be eligible to receive any new Products until we have a valid payment method on file.
(d) Collections. If any amounts owed to Rep the Squad are not paid when due, Rep the Squad may institute collection procedures. You agree to pay Rep the Squad’s costs of collection, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees.

Once you have paused your subscription AND you have returned (in accordance with Section 3.4(f) or purchased (in accordance with Section 3.5) any outstanding Products that you have received from the Service, we will suspend charging the Subscription Fee until you have reactivated your subscription as set forth below. NOTE THAT EVEN IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS PAUSED, YOU WILL STILL BE CHARGED THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE EACH MONTH UNTIL ALL PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN RETURNED OR PURCHASED.

However, if a Subscription Fee payment has been suspended while the account was paused, then the payment date for future Subscription Fee payments will be reset to the date the subscription has been reactivated.
(c) Cancelling Your Subscription. We encourage Members to pause rather than cancel their subscriptions so that they can easily resume the Service at a later date if they wish to do so.

(g) Limited Warranties. The following are the limited warranties Rep the Squad provides in connection with our Products and Service.

WE MAKE NO OTHER REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND TO YOU REGARDING THE SERVICE OR THE PRODUCTS.
i. Correct Products. The Product we deliver to you will be one of the Products in your Locker, including the specified size, color and design, except in the event that none of the Products in your Locker are available, in which case we may substitute another item that you have approved for us to send.
ii. Clean And Ready To Wear. The Products will be cleaned and delivered ready to wear. Rep the Squad cleans and inspects each Product with the utmost care, but use of the Product is at your own risk, and Rep the Squad shall not be held liable for any health-related complaints associated with any Product.

3.5 Purchase of Products
If at any time you wish to purchase one of the Products you have been borrowing, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every Product we offer has a buy it now price (the "Buy it Now" Price") so you can continue to build your own personal jersey rotation. The Buy it Now Price is determined by Rep the Squad in its sole discretion, but is generally designed to reflect Rep the Squad’s evaluation of the fair market value of the Product based on factors such as the original retail price, condition, popularity, and rarity. You understand that certain factors, such as rarity or autographs, may cause the Buy it Now Price to exceed the original retail price for the Product. You can also purchase a Product that you have lost or that has been stolen or damaged at the Buy it Now Price so that your account will be eligible to receive an additional Product. In the event that you initiate or purchase, or that Rep the Squad has the right under these Terms to treat a failure to return a Product as a purchase, the purchase price will be charged to the payment method we have on file for you unless you specify a different payment method. When you have purchased a Product, you will then receive an additional Product from your Locker if your subscription is active. All Sales are Final and all Products are sold on an "As Is" basis.

18 Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Rep the Squad and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or Rep the Squad seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Rep the Squad seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Rep the Squad waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Service or Products resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Service or Products will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in King County, Washington in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and Rep the Squad agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Service or Products is personal to you and Rep the Squad 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 proceeding.
You and Rep the Squad agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 18 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator 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. You and Rep the Squad agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Rep the Squad will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Rep the Squad, Rep the Squad will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Rep the Squad agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Washington and the United States sitting in King County, Washington 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 Service OR PRODUCTS must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Rep The Squad will not have the right to assert the claim.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 18 by emailing us at email@example.com. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 18.
