THESE TERMS CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES YOU HAVE WITH GAMERCRAFT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. PLEASE SEE SECTION 15 FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND GAMERCRAFT WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS WIDE ARBITRATION.
a) Acceptance of Terms. By accessing and/or using the Site and/or , or clicking any button to indicate your consent, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms, just as if you had agreed to these Terms in writing. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use the Site or any Services.
b) Amendment of Terms. Gamercraft may amend the Terms from time to time. Unless we provide a delayed effective date, all amendments will be effective upon posting of such updated Terms. Your continued access to or use of the Site or Services after such posting constitutes your consent to be bound by the Terms, as amended.
2. Gamercraft Platform
a) Gamercraft Platform. The Gamercraft platform enables consumers to reserve, schedule, purchase, access and attend a wide range of gaming coaching sessions, services, training camps, physical locations and training centers. The Gamercraft analytics platform provides players’ meta data, game history (stats), strategic insights, points of comparison, and gaming projections for the specific games offered on the platform. The analytics dashboards may also provide information about other users and gamers, as well as information about professional matches. You can check the games Gamercraft currently supports here.
b) Membership Options. There are a number of ways to participate in Services through Gamercraft, such as various subscription plans, promotional plans, digital Services, and non-subscription purchases. These options consist of different Services and features and may be subject to additional and differing conditions, prices, policies and limitations. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered options and plans at any time in our discretion. From time to time we may permit non-subscribers to access certain Services, content or features for a cost or at no cost. Gamercraft makes no commitment on the quantity, availability, type or frequency at which such Services, content and features will be available to non-subscribers and may modify, discontinue, remove or suspend access at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion.
c) Subscription Plans. To enjoy full access to the Site and Services, you need to sign up for a subscription. A subscription starts on the date that you sign up for a subscription and submit payment via a valid Payment Method (defined below) or reactivate a pre-existing subscription. Unless we otherwise communicate a different time period to you at the time of sign up or otherwise (such as a multi-month commitment plan), each billing cycle is one month in length (a "Subscription Cycle"). Your Gamercraft subscription automatically renews each month, and we will automatically bill the monthly subscription fee to your Payment Method each month, until your subscription is cancelled or terminated. For example, if you purchase your Gamercraft subscription on September 3, your subscription will automatically renew on October 3 (as further explained in "Subscription Cycles," below). You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment ("Payment Method"). We may update the accepted methods from time to times. If you add a subscription to your base subscription or if you upgrade or downgrade to a different subscription, all such subscriptions will be governed by these Terms and will continue indefinitely until canceled or terminated.
d) Use of Credits. Depending on the subscription plan you choose and purchase, you will be allotted credits to be used solely to book services and session within the Gamercraft platform of each Subscription Cycle. You can choose how you use your credits across the various services available to you.
Credits expire at the end of each Subscription Cycle, meaning that any credits you don’t use during the applicable Subscription Cycle will not roll over into future months, unless we expressly communicate otherwise. You can find more information about the current rollover policies here. You can see how many days you have left in each Subscription Cycle in your account settings. If your subscription is canceled or terminated your unused credits will expire immediately. There will be no refund or payment for any unused amount. When your cycle automatically renews for the next month, you’ll automatically receive your new allotment of credits. If you have any questions about how to use your credits, please contact us and we can help you.
Credits have no cash value or any other value outside of the Gamercraft platform and are not redeemable for cash. For the avoidance of doubt, the credits do not operate or serve as stored value facilities in any way. You may not transfer, trade, gift or otherwise exchange Gamercraft credits. Note that separate from credits, you can also buy a gift certificate. Gift certificates and credits are not the same thing. Our gift certificates are called "gift cards". Unlike credits, gift cards never expire. Gift cards are discussed further in Section 9(b) below.
e) Coaching Session Availability and Allocation. The exact number and type of Services and Coaching Sessions you take during any Subscription Cycle will depend on the number of credits needed to book the particular coach and coaching session you select. The number of credits needed to book a particular session or Service will vary and is determined based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to coach availability, time of day, location, pricing, popularity and other characteristics. Gamercraft does not guarantee the availability of any particular coach or coaching session. Gamercraft also reserves the right to change the number of credits you receive, including per cycle, plan, geography or otherwise.
f) Digital Classes. Gamercraft may allow you to access to a variety of audio or video Digital Classes from your computer or mobile device, via live stream and/or on demand. To access these Digital Classes, you need to comply with certain technical and hardware requirements. Certain digital classes may involve your participation through connected devices such as gaming headsets or other Gamercraft specific gadgets. If you participate in such digital Classes through a connected device, we may collect gaming data and other metrics (e.g., watching time and engagement) to calculate and improve your metrics.
g) Non-Subscription Purchases. Gamercraft may permit you to purchase certain products or services through the Site, in addition to your subscription or without having a subscription. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms apply to any such purchase you make, and you will be responsible to pay the applicable fees, which may change at any time.
i) Gamercraft Account. Your Gamercraft account is personal to you and you agree not to create more than one account. You cannot transfer or gift subscriptions or credits to third parties or allow third parties to use your Gamercraft account, including other Gamercraft users. You must not use or exploit the Site and/or Services for commercial purposes. We continually update and test various aspects of the Gamercraft platform. We reserve the right to, and by using the Site and/or Services you agree that we may, include you in or exclude you from these tests without notice. You understand and agree that Gamercraft may take actions we deem reasonably necessary to prevent fraud and abuse.
You agree that the information you provide to Gamercraft at sign up and at all other times will be true, accurate, current, and complete and that you will keep this information accurate and up-to-date at all times. When you sign up, you will be asked to create a password. You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs under your account, including any activity by unauthorized users. To use the Site you must have access to the Internet and may be required to download a Gamercraft mobile application to use some or all of Gamercraft features. You are solely responsible for providing your own access (e.g., computer, mobile device, Internet connection, etc.) to the Site and Services.
k) Communications: By providing your information or creating an account, you agree that Gamercraft may contact you by email, direct mail, telephone or text messages at any of the addresses or phone numbers, as applicable, provided by you or on your behalf in connection with Gamercraft account, including for marketing purposes. You may opt-out of marketing and content emails via the provided unsubscribe link or otherwise opt-out by contacting us at any time.
3. Fees, Billing, Cancellation
a) Recurring Billing. By initiating a Gamercraft subscription, you authorize us to charge you for your initial subscription period and a recurring monthly subscription fee at the then current rate, which may change from time to time. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more charges. You also authorize us to charge you any other fees you may incur in connection with your use of the Site, such as any applicable sign-up fee, taxes and cancellation or late fees, as further explained below. Note that even if you do not use the subscription or access the Site and/or Services, you will be responsible for subscription fees until you cancel your subscription, or it is otherwise terminated.
b) Subscription Cycle. When you sign up and purchase your Gamercraft subscription, your first Subscription Cycle will be billed immediately. Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, your subscription will automatically renew each month and you will be billed on the same date each month. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing (and if we do, we’ll make adjustments to the amounts we charge, as appropriate). In the event your paid subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your Payment Method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started your Gamercraft membership or became a paying member on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your Payment Method would be billed on that date. Your renewal date may change due to changes in your subscription.
c) Refunds. Generally, our fees (including the monthly fee for your membership and any other fees) are nonrefundable unless we specifically communicate otherwise at the time of purchase. However, we will provide a refund to subscribers for their current prepaid subscription period only in the following circumstances: (i) if you are canceling your subscription and request a refund within 5 days of the date of your first payment for your subscription or (ii) if your subscription is cancelled prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, due to your relocation, disability or death; provided, however, in each case we reserve the right to charge a fee to cover the cost of any class or other services or products you may have used or received prior to your cancellation and to ask for proof of such changed condition, to the extent permitted by law.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR MAKE GOODS FOR ANY PRIOR MONTHS INCLUDING FOR UNUSED CREDITS.
d) Price Changes. We reserve the right to adjust pricing at any time. Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, any price changes to your subscription will take effect on your next billing cycle upon notice communicated through a posting on the Gamercraft website or mobile applicable or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time, such as email. If you do not cancel your subscription, you will be deemed to have accepted these new fees.
e) Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by logging onto our website or mobile app and editing it in your account settings. If a payment is not successfully settled due to expiration, insufficient funds or otherwise, you nonetheless will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method or any other payment method you have provided, as it may be updated, including in the event you attempt to create a new account, reactivate the unsettled account or sign up for a new account. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. If we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right, but are not obligated, to terminate your access to our Site or any portion thereof.
f) Cancellation of Subscription. Unless we communicate otherwise, you may terminate your subscription at any time before your subscription renews by going into your account settings on the Gamercraft website and letting us know you would like to cancel. Unless we communicate otherwise, following any cancellation you will continue to have access to your subscription through the end of your current prepaid Subscription Cycle, unless you cancel and receive a refund in which case your access will be terminated immediately. Note that if you do terminate your subscription, we reserve the right to charge a reactivation fee if you want to return to Gamercraft in future months or to restrict your access in future months. If you cancel your subscription or it is terminated for any reason, you will lose access to all Services, content, credits or features available through the subscription.

Each trial membership automatically will convert to a regular monthly subscription and price unless canceled by 12pm ET on the day before the last day of trial. Customers that cancel and do not convert to a regular subscription may not use Gamercraft’s services after the end of the trial membership period (even if booking occurred before the end of the applicable trial period).

15. Arbitration Agreement
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
a) Purpose. This Arbitration Agreement facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and Gamercraft. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which parties to a contract agree to submit their disputes and potential disputes to a neutral third person (called an arbitrator) for a binding decision, instead of having such dispute(s) decided in a lawsuit, in court, by a judge or jury trial.
Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It provides that all disputes between you and Gamercraft shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims in court and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).
For the purpose of this Arbitration Agreement, "Gamercraft" means Gamercraft and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term "Dispute" means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Gamercraft regarding any aspect of your relationship with Gamercraft, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). "Dispute" is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
b) Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. Before initiating any Dispute, whether in court or arbitration, you must first give Gamercraft an opportunity to resolve the Dispute by mailing written notification to Gamercraft, Legal Department. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of the Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If Gamercraft does not resolve the Dispute to your satisfaction within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration.
d) Arbitration Award. The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator shall make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award by the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by applicable federal law, including but not limited to the Federal Arbitration Act ("the FAA"), and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
e) Location of Arbitration. Arbitration shall take place in New York County, New York, but it may proceed by telephone if you so choose.
f) Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs. Gamercraft will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law.
g) Class Action Waiver. Any Disputes arising out of or relating to your use of the Site and/or attendance at, participation in or use of Classes, any purchase you make on or through the Site, any information you provide via the Site, and/or these Terms (including the formation, performance, or alleged breach), shall be submitted individually by you and will not be subject to any class action or representative status. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, representative action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) . Neither you, nor any other Member of Gamercraft and/or user of Gamercraft services, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, consolidated or private attorney general proceeding with respect to the matters set forth in the first sentence of this paragraph. You agree that this Class Action Waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any dispute between you and Gamercraft and is non-severable from the Arbitration Agreement. If any portion of this Class Action Waiver is limited, voided, or cannot be enforced, then the Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. You understand that by agreeing to this Class Action Waiver, you may only pursue Dispute against Gamercraft in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding.
h) Limitation of Procedural Rights. You understand and agree that, by entering into this Arbitration Agreement, you and Gamercraft are each agreeing to arbitration instead of the right to a trial before a judge or jury in a public court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, you and Gamercraft might otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). By using the Gamercraft Site or any Class, product or services, or otherwise accepting these Terms, you are entering into this Arbitration Agreement, and you give up those procedural rights. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited in arbitration. The right to appellate review of an arbitrator’s decision is much more limited than in court, and in general an arbitrator’s decision may not be appealed for errors of fact or law.
i) Severability. If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement, other than the Class Action Waiver clause above, is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction.
j) Continuation. This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your contract with Gamercraft and your use of the Gamercraft Site, Classes and services.
Gamercraft reserves the right to modify these Terms and to impose new or additional terms or conditions on your use of Services or Platform at any time. Such modifications and additional terms and conditions will be effective immediately and incorporated into these Terms. From time to time We may ask You to renew Your strict approval of these Terms in order to further use services or Platform
Any updated version of the Terms, posted on the Platform shall be legally binding for You at the moment of your use of the Platform. You agree that updating the Terms on the Platform without separate notice to You is sufficient, and therefore Gamercraft is not obliged to notify You directly of any changes of the Terms.
