SCOPE OF EXPERIENCE; MODIFICATIONS. The information, contests, activities, and experience described on this website (the “Experiences”) may be modified from those items listed on this website or in other communication you may receive from or on behalf of Big League Impact. For example, an Experience may be cancelled, delayed, postponed, rescheduled or otherwise not completed as scheduled, or the announced athletes, celebrities and special guests may not actually participate, due to changes in game schedules or other sport-related decisions, weather conditions, lockout, strike, an act of God, an act of terrorism, civil disturbance or other reasons. By way of example and not in limitation of the foregoing, athletes listed as participants may not be available due to a trade to another team, participation in a rehabilitation assignment, injury, suspension, placement on a disabled or restricted list, or any other decision of the player, his/her team or league or union. Big League Impact will make reasonable efforts to replace any such athletes, celebrities or special guests who do not participate with other athletes, celebrities or special guests; however, Big League Impact cannot and does not guarantee participation by any particular persons. Big League Impact makes no warranties, express or implied, relative to the use or enjoyment of the Experiences or portions thereof, including, without limitation, their quality, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Big League Impact will not provide a refund for any contribution to Big League Impact, except in its sole discretion.
CONTESTS. The Experiences may include contests (“Contests”) hosted, administered, and powered by RTSports. A link to the official rules for each Contest is provided on the web page for that Contest. RTSports will be the sole and final arbiter of all disputes relating to each Contest. Big League Impact disclaims any and all responsibility and liability associated with each Contest and any disputes relating to the administration of each Contest.
AUTOGRAPHS/MEMORABILIA. You may receive one or more autographed items as part of an Experience. DURING THE “LIVE” PORTION OF AN EXPERIENCE OR ANY “GAMES AND RELATED ACTIVITIES” DESCRIBED BELOW, YOU AND YOUR GUEST(S) MAY NOT BE ALLOWED TO REQUEST OR OBTAIN AUTOGRAPHS FROM THE ATHLETES, CELEBRITIES OR OTHER SPECIAL GUESTS IN ATTENDANCE. Attempts to request autographs during any portion of an Experience may result in disqualification and forfeiture of participation in the remainder of the Experience (including forfeiture of participation in the applicable Contest) without refund.
ATTENDANCE/PARTICIPATION. Your contribution and registration entitles one (1) person as identified on the registration page to participate in an Experience. If, as applicable and available, you are making a charitable contribution that entitles more than one (1) person to participate in an Experience, you will be entitled to bring only that number of persons to participate as expressly stated for that specific Experience.
PRIZES. In accordance with and without limiting the official rules for each Contest, prizes are non-transferable and non-assignable, with no cash redemptions except in Big League Impact’s sole and absolute discretion. Big League Impact reserves the right to substitute a prize (or any portion thereof) with one of comparable or greater value in its sole and absolute discretion. The winner of a prize is fully responsible for any and all applicable federal, state and local taxes (including income and withholding taxes). Big League Impact reserves the right to require any prize winner to execute and deliver to Big League Impact an IRS Form W-9 or comparable document as a condition to issuance of the prize. All costs and expenses associated with a prize acceptance and use not expressly stated on this website as being provided as part of the prize (including, without limitation, lodging, transportation costs, meals, gratuities and other expenses incurred by accepting the prize) are the sole responsibility of the winner of such prize. Big League Impact makes no warranties, express or implied, relative to the use or enjoyment of a prize or portions thereof, including without limitation, its quality, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.

Big League Impact reserves the right to remove or otherwise terminate (without refund) the participation of any participant and/or his/her guest(s) who (a) fails to comply with policies, procedures or directives of Big League Impact, RTSports, the applicable sports leagues or teams, (b) acts in a non-sportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person involved with the Experience (including, without limitation, other participants or representatives of Big League Impact, RTSports, the applicable sports leagues or teams), (c) uses or posts explicit language or threats of violence, or promotes illegal activities; (d) posts pornography, adult-oriented content or any other sexually-explicit material; (e) uses or posts content in violation of intellectual property rights or laws; (f) makes libelous, defamatory, disparaging, tortious or slanderous comments; (g) uses or posts content that denigrates, disparages or reflects negatively on Big League Impact or its representatives, the applicable sports leagues or teams, or their owners or employees; or (h) uses or posts material that promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or promotes discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, age or any other basis protected by federal, state, or local law, ordinance, or regulation.

SPORTING EVENTS AND RELATED ACTIVITIES. To the extent attendance or participation at a sporting event (e.g. a baseball game) or any ancillary activity relating thereto (including, without limitation, batting practice, a “first pitch” ceremony or otherwise) is provided as part of any Experience or provided as a prize awarded in connection with an Experience and/or any Contest, the terms and conditions of the game tickets or other credentials issued by the team or league will govern your attendance, participation and/or removal from such game or activity, as well as any rain-checks or other ramifications in the event the game or activity is postponed, delayed, suspended, rescheduled or otherwise not played or carried out as scheduled.

GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS. All applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. The Experiences and these Terms and Conditions will be governed by the laws of the State of Georgia. Any court of competent jurisdiction sitting in Atlanta, Georgia will be the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any dispute arising out of or relating to the Experiences or these Terms and Conditions. Failure by Big League Impact to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver of any provision, including, without limitation, the foregoing jurisdictional and venue requirements. Nothing herein limits or derogates from Big League Impact’s rights as a member of the general public.
No Experience, nor the opportunity to participate in any portion of an Experience, may be transferred, sold or offered for transfer or sale without express written consent of Big League Impact. Any such transfer, sale or offer for transfer or sale may result in disqualification and forfeiture of participation in the Experience without refund.
You expressly assume all risk and danger and all hazards arising from, or related in any way to, your participation in any Experience and/or the Contest, however caused, whether by negligence or otherwise. You hereby fully release Big League Impact, RTSports, any participating sports league or team (including Major League Baseball, the National Football League, National Hockey League, PGA Tour, or their affiliated clubs or unions), Big League Impact’s designated beneficiaries, and each of their employees, directors, shareholders, officers, agents, sponsors, successors, and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from any and all liability for any injuries, death, property damage, libel, slander, defamation, infringement of right of publicity, invasion of privacy, false association or false endorsement, whether or not caused by any negligence or act or omission of the Released Parties, or damages or losses of any kind directly or indirectly relating to your participation in any Experience, or resulting from the acceptance, possession, quality, use or misuse of any prize, or any portion of any prize, including any travel or activity related thereto.
