If you sign up for the Monthly Membership, you will be required to pay the first month’s Membership Fee at the time you sign-up, and then billed monthly thereafter on the same calendar day each month (e.g., February 1, March 1, April 1, etc.), or if calendar day you purchased does not recur each month, then on the last day of the month (i.e., March 31, April 30, May 31, etc.).

If you cancel your membership after the first ten (10) days of your Membership Period, the Membership Fee will not be refunded, however you will continue to receive all Spartan+ Benefits for the remainder of the Membership Period (if you cancel a Monthly Membership during the initial 6-month minimum Membership Period, you will continue to receive all Spartan+ Benefits for the remainder of the initial 6-month minimum period).

vi. Updates and Changes. The Spartan+ fees and benefits may change in the future. If Spartan changes the Membership Fee charged for a Spartan+ Membership, Spartan will notify you and provide you with the opportunity to change or cancel your membership before it is renewed for another Membership Period. Your continued use of (and failure to timely cancel) the Spartan+ Membership after such change becomes effective will constitute your acceptance of the increased Membership Fee. If you do not wish to continue subscribing to Spartan+ with the new fees, you may cancel your Spartan+ Membership in accordance with the “Cancellation” terms and conditions above. Any Spartan+ Membership will be subject to the terms and conditions in effect at the time you sign up or renew for a new Membership Period.

Spartan reserves the right to accept, refuse, suspend, or cancel your Spartan+ Membership at any time in its sole discretion. If Spartan cancels your Spartan+ Membership, you will receive a refund of your Membership Fee on a pro rata basis calculated from the end of the month during which your membership was cancelled, unless Spartan terminates your User Account or your Spartan+ Membership because it determines, in its sole discretion, that your actions or your use of the Spartan+ Benefits, the Services violates the Terms of Use.

viii. Spartan Plus Ticket Protection Program. Where You are a Spartan Plus member at the time of purchase of any registration for an Event and remain a Spartan Plus member through the date of the Event purchased (or as of the date of cancelation or rescheduling) (“Qualified Member”), You will be automatically refunded the purchase price paid for that Event (inclusive of service fees and taxes paid) where that Event is cancelled by Spartan for any reason. Where Spartan reschedules an Event for a Qualified Member, Spartan will refund the purchase price of that rescheduled Event upon request by the Qualified Member made in writing no later than 60 days from the date that the Event was originally scheduled. Any claims for refunds by Qualified Members for rescheduled Events occurring after the 120-day window will not be refunded by Spartan and Spartan has no obligation to provide any substitute benefit or renumeration in that instance. Where a Qualified Member elects to receive a refund of fees paid for a rescheduled Event, Spartan will cancel all Event registrations related to that rescheduled Event held by the Qualified Member at the time the request for refund is made. Where a Qualified Member (or any Event participants with an Event registration purchased by the Qualified Member) attend or otherwise participate in the rescheduled Event, Spartan will have no obligation to refund any Event registration fees to the Qualified Member. All refunds will be paid to the Qualified Member purchasing the Event registration(s) including where such Qualified Member has purchased multiple Event registrations on behalf of him/herself and others. Only a Qualified Member that has directly purchased an Event registration for a rescheduled Event may request a refund of fees paid. All refunds under this section will be made in totality by Spartan and Spartan will not provide “partial” refunds or refunds of select Event registrations under this program. Where a Qualified Member purchases an Event registration eligible for a refund through a third-party Event registration provider (e.g. Groupon), Groupon will refund the fees paid by the Qualified Member in lieu of Spartan. SEASON PASS HOLDERS ONLY:  Where a Qualified Member is a Season Pass holder and registers for an Event that is cancelled, Spartan will only refund the fees paid by the Season Pass holder for the cancelled Event and not for the underlying cost of the Season Pass.

16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

(a) Mediation. If a dispute arises out of or relates to these Terms of Use, or the Participant’s use of the Site, and if said dispute cannot be resolved or settled through negotiation, Participant, individually and on behalf of all of her/his heirs, personal representatives, executors, successors and assigns, agrees that prior to the filing of any arbitration, or other legal action consistent with the provisions of these Terms of Use, that Participant will first attempt, in good faith, to settle the dispute by non-binding mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association. The mediation shall take place in Boston, Massachusetts, and shall be facilitated by a neutral appointed by the American Arbitration Association. The costs of such mediation shall be shared equally by the parties thereto.

(b) Arbitration. All controversies, disputes or claims arising out of or related to these Terms of Use, to the extent not first resolved through negotiation and mediation, will be submitted to and for binding arbitration in front of a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association, conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s then-current Consumer Arbitration Rules, at the American Arbitration Association’s offices in Boston, Massachusetts. All matters related to arbitration will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§1 et seq.) and not by any state arbitration law. The arbitrator will have the right to award or include in the award any relief which the arbitrator deems proper in the circumstances, except that the arbitrator does not have the right to award exemplary, punitive, penal, or multiple (e.g., double, or treble) damages. The award and decision of the arbitrator will be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto and judgment upon the award may be entered solely in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. The arbitrator will not have the authority or right to add to, delete, amend, or modify the terms, conditions, or provisions of these Terms of Use. All findings, decisions and awards of the arbitrator will be limited to the dispute(s) set forth in the written demand for arbitration (and any submitted counterclaim), and the arbitrator will not have authority to decide any other issues unless the parties to the arbitration mutually agree thereto. Participant, individually and on behalf of all of her/his heirs, personal representatives, executors, successors, and assigns, acknowledges and agrees that any arbitration will be conducted only on any individual, not a class-wide, basis, and that an arbitration proceeding initiated by Participant and/or her/his heirs, personal representatives, executors, successors, and assigns, may not be consolidated with any other arbitration proceeding. No findings, conclusions, orders, or awards emanating from any arbitration proceeding conducted hereunder may be introduced, referred to, or used in any subsequent or other proceeding as a precedent, to collaterally estop any party from advancing any claim or defense or from raising any like or similar issues, or for any other purpose whatsoever. The principles of collateral estoppel shall not apply in any arbitration proceeding conducted under this section. Further, Participant, individually and on behalf of all of her/his heirs, personal representatives, executors, successors and assigns, acknowledges and agrees that notwithstanding any provision of law which provides for a longer limitations period, neither Participant nor Participant’s heirs, personal representatives, executors, successors and assigns will bring, commence, or maintain an action or claim of any kind, in connection with liability or obligation in connection with these Terms of Use, or otherwise, unless brought before the expiration of the earlier of: (i) one (1) year after the date of discovery of the facts resulting in such alleged liability or obligation, or if earlier, the date such facts should or could have been discovered with reasonable diligence; or (ii) eighteen (18) months after the date of the first act or omission giving rise to such alleged liability or obligation. Actions and claims brought or asserted after expiration of the applicable limitations period shall be barred.

17. GOVERNING LAW
