1.1 User Agreement
You agree that by clicking “Sign Up” (or similar), and by creating and registering for a Spartan user account (“User Account”), and accessing and using the User Account and the services included therewith (“Services”) you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Spartan Race, Inc. (“Spartan”), and shall be subject to, and thereby assent to, the following terms and conditions (including our Privacy Policy) set forth below. If you do not agree to this contract (“User Agreement”), do not open and/or register for a User Account. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your User Account.

You are entering into this User Agreement with Spartan (also referred to as “we”, “us”, and “our”). This User Agreement shall apply to all User Accounts setup on all applicable Spartan websites, including without limitation, spartan.com, spartanrace.uk, and spartanrace.ca (the “Site(s)”)

1.2 Privacy Policy
By creating, opening, registering for, using and/or accessing a User Account, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to our Privacy Policy (which includes our Cookie Policy) as well as any changes, updates or modifications thereto as set forth in Section 1.3 below.

1.3 Change
We may modify this User Agreement or our Privacy Policy from time to time, therefore please periodically review them. If we make material changes to it, we will provide you notice. Your continued use of User Account after we publish or send a notice about our changes to these terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms as of their effective date. If you object to any changes, you may close your User Account.

2. Obligations

2.1 Eligibility
By creating a User Account, you agree that: (1) you are the “Minimum Age” (defined below) or older; (2) you will only have one Spartan User Account; (3) you will provide true, accurate and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form ("Registration Data") including without limitation, your real full name, date of birth, and email address; (4) you will maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete; and (5) you are not already restricted by Spartan from having a User Account. It is a violation of this User Agreement to create a User Account with false information, or to create User Account registered on behalf of others with false information, or to create a User Account for persons under the age of 14.

“Minimum Age” means 14 years old. Individuals under the age of 14 shall not be permitted to create a User Account. If you create a User Account, you represent that you are 14 years of age or older and, if you are under the age of 18, you either are an emancipated minor or have obtained the legal consent of your parent, legal guardian. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for Spartan to lawfully provide the Services to you, or to permit you to create a User Account and provide us with your personal information, without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age as required by law.

2.2 Your User Account
As between you and others, your User Account belongs to you. By creating a User Account, you agree to: (1) use a strong password and keep it confidential; (2) not transfer any part of your User Account; and (3) follow the law and our list of Dos and Don’ts set forth below in Section 8. You are responsible for anything that happens through your User Account unless you close it or report misuse. To the extent permissible by law, we are not liable for any harm caused or related to the theft or misappropriation of your user name or password due to your failure to take reasonable measures to maintain the confidentiality of your registration, your disclosure of your user name or password, or your authorization of anyone else to use your user name or password. If you have reason to believe that your registration is no longer secure, you must promptly change your password to the Site and immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at us@spartan.com.

2.3 Additional Terms
To the extent that there is a conflict between this User Agreement and any additional terms and conditions (“Additional Terms”) for any event, product, service, license, ticket, contest, transaction, sale, membership, and/or activity for which you are using the Site to register or purchase (each, an “Event”), the Additional Terms of use shall govern. This User Agreement will remain in full force and effect as long as you are a user of, or maintain the User Account and, you will still be bound by your obligations under this User Agreement, including any indemnification obligations, warranties, and limitations of liability set forth herein.

2.4 Purchases
If you make any purchases of other Spartan products or services through your User Account, such applicable Additional Terms shall apply.

6. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution

Except as prohibited by law, you agree that any claim, controversy or legal dispute arising out of or relating to this User Agreement (hereinafter, a “Dispute”) will be resolved through binding arbitration. This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted and includes claims, controversies or disputes arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between you and Spartan, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, all of which shall be considered within the definition of “Dispute.” You affirm you have had the opportunity to review the Arbitration Agreement and affirm you are expressly agreeing to comply with and be bound by the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement. This User Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of your agreement to arbitrate all Disputes hereunder. Massachusetts state law and procedures concerning arbitration shall apply any Disputes arising out of or relating to this User Agreement to the extent that they do not conflict with and are not inconsistent with the FAA. You agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. YOU AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION. In the event that the Arbitration Agreement in this User Agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us shall be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Suffolk County, Massachusetts, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.

7. General Terms

If any provision of this User Agreement is held to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction for any reason whatsoever, (i) the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this User Agreement (including without limitation, all portions of any provisions containing any such unenforceable provision that are not themselves unenforceable) shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby, and (ii) to the fullest extent possible, the unenforceable provision shall be deemed modified and replaced by a provision that approximates the intent and economic effect of the unenforceable provision and this User Agreement shall be deemed amended accordingly.

This User Agreement (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the User Account or related Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.

If we don't act to enforce a breach of this User Agreement, that does not mean that Spartan has waived its right to enforce this User Agreement. You agree that Spartan may assign this User Agreement to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. You may not assign or transfer this User Agreement, or your User Account (including any of your rights or obligations hereunder), and any assignment is a violation of this User Agreement and therefore is void. Except for any Spartan parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, or licensed partners, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this User Agreement.

You agree that the only way to provide us legal notice is in accordance with Section 3.5 of this User Agreement.
