If your Purchase includes Tickets or other deliverables, they will be delivered to you in accordance with the policies established by Elevate as disclosed to you at the time of your Purchase. Elevate is not responsible for lost, stolen, or destroyed Tickets. Before making a Purchase, carefully review your selections, including any information relating to the Event or other elements of your Purchase, and conﬁrm all details of your Purchase prior to completing the same.

For certain Purchases, you may be eligible to submit a name change for your Purchase, which if applicable will be communicated to you at the time of Purchase.
Each Purchase is a revocable license. We reserve the right, without refund of any portion of the price paid for your Purchase and without any other form of compensation payable to you, to refuse admission to or to eject you or any other person from any Event or other elements of your Purchase (including those provided by Third-Party Providers, such as hotels), and/or to withdraw or refuse to provide services to you or any other person if such person (i) fails to comply with this Policy or any other terms, conditions, policies or procedures applicable to your Purchase and/or the Event, including the rules, policies and procedures of any Third-Party Provider or Organizer, in whole or in part; (ii) fails to comply with applicable local, state or federal statute, law, rule, regulation, ordinance or order (“Applicable Law”), in whole or in part; and/or (iii) engages in conduct deemed by us or any applicable Third-Party Provider or Organizer to be disorderly, annoying, illegal, vulgar, abusive, threatening, uncomfortable, aggressive, or out of compliance with this Policy or the applicable Third-Party Provider’s or Organizer’s terms, conditions, rules or policies (any such actions behavior, or conduct, collectively, “Removal Behavior”).
Elevate makes no representations or warranties concerning the condition of any venue where an Event or any other element or aspect of your Purchase is to take place, or such venue’s suitability for any particular purpose, and you accept the condition of any such venue “as is.” If necessary, you may be relocated to an alternative seating location at any such venue in the sole discretion of Elevate and/or the applicable Third-Party Provider or Organizer and no such relocation shall entitle you to a refund, make-good or other remedy if you are relocated to a comparable seating location in such venue.
Any resale of your Purchase (or any portion or element thereof) in violation of this Policy or Applicable Law will result in the automatic cancellation and invalidation of your Purchase and a revocation of any license granted to you in connection therewith. Furthermore, you shall not use your Purchase (or any portion or element thereof) for advertising, marketing, promotions or any other commercial purposes, including, without limitation, contests, auctions, sweepstakes and giveaways, without the express written consent of Elevate, which may be granted in Elevate’s sole and absolute discretion.
In connection with your Purchase, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to the transaction, including, without limitation, payment information. We accept several methods of payment to accommodate your needs, including most major credit cards. You represent and warrant that any credit card information that you submit to us is true, accurate and complete, and you agree to immediately notify us if any information is inaccurate. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment methods used in connection with a transaction.
Unless expressly stated on an applicable invoice or purchase order, all amounts payable for your Purchase are due at the time of Purchase. When making a Purchase using a credit card, you authorize us to charge your credit card at the time you make the Purchase, and at any future dates in accordance with any agreed upon payment schedule. If you have made a Purchase pursuant to a payment schedule, you agree that the credit card that you have on file with us will be charged for the amounts and on the dates set forth in the payment schedule outlined in the applicable invoice or purchase order. You agree that if such credit card expires, is invalid, is deleted or is otherwise not capable of effecting payment on the dates set forth in your payment schedule, we will provide you notice and a period of up to 10 days to provide updated payment information to process the payment. If we do not receive payment within such 10-day period, your Purchase will be canceled and all prior amounts paid in respect of your Purchase will be forfeited and non-refundable.
You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your credit card by the applicable card issuer, bank or ﬁnancial institution, including, without limitation, any credit card membership, overdraft or over-the-credit-limit fees. You covenant and agree that you will not attempt to evade, avoid, or circumvent any refund prohibitions set forth in this Policy in any manner, including disputing such Purchase with your credit card issuer, bank, or financial institution, or otherwise seeking a chargeback for amounts paid in respect of your Purchase. Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for international transactions. If you are making a Purchase from outside of the United States on a U.S. credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee.
The price of your Purchase may include costs in addition to those payable for Tickets to the applicable Event, including costs related to the other elements of the Purchase. As a result, please be aware that prices listed may be higher than the original face value price reflected on the face of the Ticket. Subject to the following paragraph, the price of your Purchase is deemed ﬁnal once your order is conﬁrmed. Once your order has been conﬁrmed, if the price of any Tickets included in your Purchase increases prior to the Event, you will not be charged for the difference. Alternatively, if the price of the Tickets included in your Purchase decreases prior to the Event, no refunds or upgrades will be provided to you.
Unless otherwise noted at check-out and/or in an applicable invoice or purchase order, the total price of your Purchase is inclusive of all applicable sales, use and similar taxes. Accordingly, unless determined otherwise by a legitimate taxing authority, you shall not be liable for additional payment of sales, use or similar taxes in connection with your Purchase, all of which will be collected at Purchase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent we reasonably determine that additional taxes are applicable to your Purchase that were not
included in the total price paid by you at the time of Purchase, you shall be solely responsible for such taxes and shall pay and/or be responsible for paying any such taxes. If such taxes are not collected directly from you by a legitimate taxing authority, and such taxes are required to be paid by Elevate to such taxing authority, all such taxes shall be immediately due and payable by you to Elevate upon demand. You shall reimburse Elevate for any fees, penalties or interest paid by Elevate with respect to any such sales, use and similar taxes.
All prices are listed in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted. Occasionally, prices are inadvertently listed incorrectly on the website. In these rare instances, if your order has not been conﬁrmed, we may cancel your order and you will not be charged. If your order has been conﬁrmed, you will be refunded in full and may complete your Purchase at the correct price, subject to availability. In both of these scenarios you may receive an email or phone call advising you of your options or that your order has been canceled.
All times listed are local for the Event. Event dates, times, and venue are printed on the face of the Tickets and website but are always subject to change. It is your responsibility to verify all of this information prior to the Event. Please consult local media or the Event’s and/or applicable Organizer’s ofﬁcial website to ensure that you arrive at the Event on the correct date, time, and at the correct venue. Elevate is not responsible for notifying you of date, time, or venue changes for the Event. If you are not able to gain admission to the Event with the Tickets that were delivered to you by Elevate, you must obtain documentation from the applicable Organizer stating that the Tickets were unusable in order for us to be able to process a refund.
UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED IN WRITING OR ADVERTISED AT THE
TIME OF PURCHASE, ALL SALES ARE FINAL, NON-TRANSFERABLE, NON-RESALABLE, NON REFUNDABLE, NON EXCHANGEABLE, AND NOT REDEEMABLE FOR CASH. IF YOU FAIL TO MAKE A PAYMENT FOR ANY REASON, WE MAY VOID OR CANCEL YOUR PURCHASE AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF ANY AMOUNTS PREVIOUSLY PAID. IF APPLICABLE, A VALID PASSPORT IS REQUIRED FOR TRAVEL TO THE EVENT FROM OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU ARE TRAVELING TO THE EVENT FROM OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES, PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A VALID PASSPORT AND ANY OTHER NECESSARY TRAVEL DOCUMENTATION, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, VISAS OR PROOF OF VACCINATIONS, PRIOR TO MAKING A PURCHASE, AS NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES WILL BE AVAILABLE IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO TRAVEL FOR ANY REASON. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES WILL BE PROVIDED ON ACCOUNT OF ILLNESSES, EMERGENCIES, OR ANY OTHER UNEXPECTED CIRCUMSTANCES AFFECTING YOUR ATTENDANCE AT THE EVENT.
IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CONSIDER PURCHASING TRAVEL INSURANCE FROM A THIRD PARTY.

Without appropriate travel insurance, you understand and agree that if you cancel or interrupt your travel for any reason, your Purchase is not refundable (unless otherwise agreed to in writing) and Elevate and any Third-Party Provider’s cancellation polices (including applicable penalties) will apply, which may result in the loss of monies up to the full cost of your Purchase and any related costs. The purchase of travel insurance is not required in order to make a Purchase from Elevate. Employees of Elevate are not qualiﬁed or authorized to answer technical questions about beneﬁts, exclusions, and conditions of any travel insurance offered or available to you, nor evaluate the adequacy of you or any other prospective insured’s existing insurance coverage.
Canceled, Postponed or Relocated Events (Non-Refundable unless otherwise noted)
The location, date and time of the Event and any other elements of your Purchase are subject to change for any reason, including, but not limited to, cancellation, postponement or relocation by Elevate, the Organizer(s) responsible for the staging or hosting of the Event, or the Third-Party Providers supplying any other elements of your Purchase (collectively, the “Providers”), respectively, in each of their sole discretion, and no such change shall entitle you to a refund or any other remedy if you cannot attend for any reason due to such change, unless advertised as such at the time of your Purchase or otherwise agreed to in writing by Elevate. Without limiting the foregoing, any element of your Purchase may be canceled, postponed, delayed, altered, relocated or rescheduled at any time, with or without notice, in a Provider’s sole discretion.
In addition, no Provider will be liable to you or any other person because of any delay or failure to provide such person with any element of your Purchase or to otherwise perform its obligations hereunder if such delay or failure is caused by actions or events beyond the reasonably foreseeable control of such Provider, including, without limitation, (i) ﬁre, earthquake, hurricane, ﬂood, other adverse weather conditions or any other acts of God, (ii) power failures, electrical or mechanical difﬁculties, (iii) strikes, lockouts, work stoppages or other labor disturbances, (iv) governmental regulations or restrictions, (v) acts of terrorism, war, riots, or other civil
disturbances, (vi) epidemic or pandemic (including COVID-19), or (vii) any other cause or condition, whether known or unknown, or similar or dissimilar to any of the foregoing, that is beyond the reasonably foreseeable control of a Provider (each, a “Force Majeure Event”).
Any delay or failure of Elevate or any other Provider to provide your Purchase (or any portion or element thereof) or to perform any of its obligations hereunder that is caused by a Force Majeure Event shall not constitute a breach of this Policy or grounds for your cancellation, revocation, suspension or termination of your Purchase or this Policy. For the avoidance of doubt, postponement, relocation or cancellation of an Event or any other element of your Purchase due to a Force Majeure Event is beyond the control of Elevate, and Elevate will not issue any refund or exchange of your Purchase or any element thereof, unless advertised as such at the time of Purchase or otherwise agreed to in writing.
Your Purchase is a “rain or shine” ﬁnal Purchase. If an Event is canceled, postponed, delayed, altered, relocated or rescheduled, Elevate will not refund incidental expenses that you may have incurred as a result of your plans to attend the Event, including, but not limited to, transportation expenses, hotel reservations, or rental car costs. We are not responsible for the actions of any other Providers when an Event is canceled. If an Event is postponed or rescheduled, please retain your Ticket. In most cases, elements of your original Purchase, including any Tickets, will be honored for the new Event date and new Tickets will not need to be reissued. Refunds or exchanges will not be made for postponed, relocated or rescheduled Events, and you shall only be entitled to attend the relocated or rescheduled Event. It is your responsibility to verify information regarding relocated or rescheduled Event locations, dates and times prior to attending a relocated or rescheduled Event. Schedules, performers, participants, teams, production elements, amenities, and all other aspects of the Event and/or your Purchase are subject to change without notice and without grounds for refund. If an Event is canceled for any reason other than a Force Majeure Event, refunds for Tickets and any other elements of your Purchase will be made at the sole discretion of Elevate and the applicable Organizers or Third-Party Providers, or as otherwise required in accordance with Applicable Law. If we issue you a refund for your Purchase, or one or more Tickets individually, due to a canceled Event, we will issue a refund of the Tickets’ face value and such refund will be limited only to the portion or elements of your Purchase that were unable to be utilized due to such cancellation. In no event will delivery charges or any other amounts be refunded.
In connection with your Purchase and/or your use of this website, you may be presented information about travel services, travel packages, transportation, dining options, hotel, resort or other lodging accommodations, various forms of entertainment and many other services and amenities. Much of this information is supplied to us by Third-Party Providers, including, without limitation, hotels, resorts, transportation companies, and other service providers, and we cannot always verify the accuracy of such information.

If your Purchase includes hotel, resort or other lodging accommodations, certain hotels, resorts or providers of other lodging (collectively, “Hotels”) may have minimum age requirements. Please pay attention to all details of each package description prior to making a Purchase, as no refunds or exchanges will be available for erroneously made Purchases. Some Hotels may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses incurred during your stay. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by Elevate for your Purchase or any other transaction, and you will be solely responsible for paying any such deposit. Some Hotels may also require you to present a valid driver’s license or Passport upon check in. You acknowledge that you may be relocated to an alternative room (including a room in a different Hotel than the originally booked Hotel) in the sole discretion of a Hotel, and no such relocation shall entitle you to a refund, make-good or other remedy from Elevate if you are relocated to a comparable room at the same Hotel or a different Hotel.
If applicable, information provided by us with respect to Hotels (including, without limitation, ratings, photographs, lists of Hotels, and descriptions of property and rooms) are provided by the respective Third-Party Providers.

Governing Law; Disputes; Mandatory Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
Subject to the provisions of applicable law, this Policy is governed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and the State of Delaware, without regard to its choice or conﬂict of law provisions. Purchaser and Elevate each hereby expressly consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of the State of North Carolina for the adjudication or disposition of any claim, action or dispute arising out of this Policy. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Policy, Purchaser and Elevate each hereby waive any and all rights to a judicial determination of any dispute or claims related to this Policy, including the right to trial by jury, and any and all disputes, claims, or causes of action between the parties arising out of or concerning this Policy or any alleged breach thereof by either party, and agree to resolve any disputes or claims through binding arbitration. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to the products or services sold or distributed by Elevate or through Elevate, will be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court, with the following exceptions:
The arbitration agreement in this Policy is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), including its procedural provisions, in all respects. This means that the FAA governs, among other things, the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement and all of its provisions, including, without limitation, the class action waiver discussed below. State arbitration laws do not govern in any respect.
This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted and will survive termination of this Policy. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by Applicable Law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Policy, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Policy is void or voidable. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow this Policy as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Elevate Sports Ventures Inc., 6100 Fairview Road, Suite 1220, Charlotte, NC 28210, Attn: Legal Department. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by video conference or in Charlotte, North Carolina. In the event that the location of the arbitration is for any reason held to be unenforceable, the arbitration shall take place in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
BY MAKING YOUR PURCHASE, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. Purchaser and Elevate each hereby 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. If this speciﬁc provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration section will be null and void and neither Purchaser nor Elevate will be entitled to arbitrate such dispute.

Nothing contained in this Policy will be deemed to constitute either party as the agent or representative of the other party, or both parties as joint venturers or partners for any purpose. You may not assign, delegate or transfer your rights, if any, or obligations in connection with your Purchase or under this Policy, to any person without Elevate’s express written consent. Elevate may assign its rights and duties in connection with your Purchase and under this Policy without such assignment being considered a change to the Policy and without notice to you. The terms and conditions set forth in this Policy represent the entire understanding and agreement between you and Elevate relating to your Purchase and the other precise subject matter set forth herein, and this Policy hereby supersedes any and all prior statements, understandings or agreements regarding your Purchase and/or such subject matter, whether oral or written. This Policy may not be modiﬁed except in a writing signed by Elevate. Any waiver of any provision of these terms must be in writing and signed by Elevate to be valid. A waiver of any provision hereunder shall not operate as a waiver of any other provision, or a continuing waiver of the same provision in the future. If any court of competent jurisdiction ﬁnds any provision of these terms to be void or unenforceable for any reason, then such provision shall be severable and ineffective to the extent of the court’s ﬁnding without affecting the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
