PURCHASES FROM HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT
All orders are subject to our acceptance or rejection based on product availability, noncompliance with these Terms or any other reason as determined in our sole discretion. We may take steps to verify your identity to process your order and may limit or cancel quantities of Products purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the email, billing address and/or phone number provided at the time the order was made, and we will either not charge you or will refund the charges for orders that we cancel or do not process.

Unless otherwise specified, prices quoted are exclusive of: (a) the costs of shipping or carriage to the agreed place of delivery; and (b) value added tax and any other tax or duty which (where applicable) must be added to the price payable. You agree to pay for taxes, shipping, or carriage of the products as such costs are specified by us when you submit your order. After you place your order, we will send you a confirmation email.
The Site may contain information regarding the availability of Products. In rare cases, a Product may be shown as in stock when you place the order but becomes sold out prior to our processing of the order. Should this happen, we will notify you by email, and offer you an option to cancel the item and receive a refund or offer you an option to delay receipt of the product. We also may offer some Products for sale before they have been manufactured or arrive at our warehouse (ie; ‘pre-order’). When you pre-order these Products, we will ship them out once they are available. In rare cases, these items may not become available for shipping. Should this happen, we will notify you by email, cancel the item from your order, and refund the payment for such order.
HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT currently ships only to locations within the 50 United States. Shipments will be made via standard ground service unless otherwise specified at the time of purchase. The time period from order to delivery will vary depending on location. Please refer to the Shipping Information on the transaction page or contact us at email@example.com for more details.
Excluding pre-orders, your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out at time of the transaction or in your order confirmation. If no delivery date is specified, then you will receive your order within 30 days after the date of the order confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances, at which point we will inform you of a new estimated delivery date.
Your order will be delivered to the delivery address that you specify when placing your order. If we are unable to deliver to your delivery address, we will contact you. Products within the same order cannot be delivered to different addresses.
Ownership of the Product ordered will also pass to you upon your receipt of the Product, provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Product, including any delivery charges, has been received. Once received and paid for, the Product ordered will be at your risk.
If any Product you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you. If you believe a Product was delivered in a damaged or faulty state or has developed a fault, you should inform us as soon as possible, preferably in writing, and follow instructions provided by our customer service department.

4. LEGAL DISPUTES AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS SET FORTH BELOW. NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. IN ADDITION, ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR HAVING A JURY TRIAL.INITIAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
We are available by email at info@HBCUSPORTSSUMMIT.com or by certified mail addressed to HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT Legal Department, 19200 Von Karman Ave. Ste 400 Irvine, Ca. 92612 to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. Please include the following information in your communication: (a) your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) a description of the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) the specific relief sought. The Parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
AGREEMENT TO BINDING ARBITRATION
You and HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT, HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT will pay all JAMS fees and costs. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Los Angeles, CA or may be conducted telephonically or via video conference for disputes alleging damages less than $500, in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”), the most recent version of which are available on the JAMS website at www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/, and are hereby incorporated by reference. You may also contact JAMS by calling 1.800.352.5267.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the Parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the Parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
EXCEPTION – SMALL CLAIMS COURT CLAIMS
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
30 DAY RIGHT TO OPT OUT
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the preceding paragraphs by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your agreement to these Terms, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the Terms. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT also will not be bound by them.
EXCLUSIVE VENUE FOR LITIGATION
Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the Parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The Parties expressly consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California for any litigation other than small claims court actions. The Parties irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California for any litigation and hereby waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction in such courts in any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) these Terms or the Services, and (b) any acts or omissions of any of the HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT Entities in connection with these Terms or the Services.
5. TERMINATION, SURVIVAL
6. MISCELLANEOUSAPPLICABLE LAW
These Terms constitute a contract made solely over the Internet and you agree that the laws of the State of California without regard to principles of conflict of laws will govern these Terms and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT relating to use of any aspect of the Services. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
These Terms and the terms and conditions incorporated in these Terms by reference are the entire agreement between you and HBCU SPORTS SUMMIT.
Except as provided in the Arbitration provisions above, if any provision of these Terms is unenforceable, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not be affected.
Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We do not guarantee we will take action against all breaches of these Terms.
