3 SLEEPER WALLET & PAYMENT TERMS
3.1 You may be eligible to link your bank account and/or a credit card to your Sleeper account in order to create a wallet (a “Sleeper Wallet”). Your Sleeper Wallet can be used to fund participation in certain Services we offer, such as our paid-entry contests of skill.
3.2 In order to setup a Sleeper Wallet, you must:
· Be a legal resident of the United States;
· Be at least eighteen (18) years of age, or, in jurisdictions, territories, and locations where the minimum age requirement is higher, you meet that age requirement (19 in Alabama and Nebraska; 21 in Massachusetts);
· Be physically located in one (1) of the fifty (50) states (or the District of Columbia) that is not considered an Excluded State. “Excluded States” shall mean: Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Washington;
· Possess a valid tax identification or social security number;
· Possess (and have the authority to utilize) a valid bank account or credit card issued by a financial institution in the United States (subject to our availability to accept certain forms of payment); and
· Undergo (and pass) an identity/background verification check.
3.3 By inputting a payment method (for a Sleeper Wallet or otherwise), you represent and warrant that you are the lawful owner of the payment method account. If you elect to save a payment method to the Services, you agree that your bank or card information will be saved for future transactions on your account, and you provide authorization to be charged for agreed upon payments. You may cancel this authorization by following the instructions in the Services. Our payment processing partners may have their own terms and conditions and you should ensure that you agree with these prior to making any payment(s). If your transaction with our payment processing partners is not successful, then your payment will not be fulfilled. Depending on which financial institution you use, additional charges may be issued by your financial institutions as we have no control over such charges nor accept liability for them.
3.4 You agree that all payments are final and that we are under no obligation to refund any transaction once a payment has been made, subject to applicable law. For these purposes, a payment is complete at the time our servers validate your payment and successfully credit your account on our servers. Deposits made into your Sleeper Wallet will appear on your statement as SLEEPER. In the case of a dispute regarding the identity of a user submitting payment, that payment will be deemed to have been submitted by the user in whose name the respective individual account was registered.
3.5 If your Sleeper Wallet has no activity for twenty-four (24) consecutive months, it will be considered inactive. Sleeper may assess a monthly fee of $4.99 to maintain inactive wallets until it is reactivated by entering a paid-entry contest of skill, making a deposit, or withdrawing funds. Prior to deducting any fees due to wallet inactivity, Sleeper will provide you at least thirty (30) days-written notice.
3.6 Once a Sleeper Wallet is legally found to be abandoned, as determined by each state’s applicable law, it will be considered so, and Sleeper may be required to remit the abandoned funds to the appropriate state agency as unclaimed property. Sleeper reserves the right to deduct fees associated with the delivery of abandoned funds subject to applicable law.

11.2 These Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware without regards to the conflicts of law principles. If any clause or provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any authority having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses or provisions of these Terms, including but not limited to the class action waiver.

Furthermore, you agree that any arbitration will take place in Delaware.
11.3 All claims arising in connection with your use of the Services should be reported and brought to our attention as soon as possible in a written statement delivered to [email protected]. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, and/or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.

11.4 EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY TO BE HEARD IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU, ON THE ONE HAND, AND SLEEPER OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, OR SUPPLIERS, ON THE OTHER HAND, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY.

11.6 The arbitration will be administered by JAMS in accordance with the provisions of its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules or Streamlined Arbitrations Rules, as appropriate, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The JAMS Rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at http://www.jamsadr.com/ or by calling JAMS at (800) 352-5267. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location that is reasonably convenient to the parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination will be made by the arbitrator. If you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will, to the extent required to make this section enforceable, pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitrator will be bound by these Terms, when not in conflict with applicable law, and the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and final, subject only to limited right of judicial review provided under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. If the arbitrator decides that either the substance of your claim or the remedy you asked for is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, we may use the applicable JAMS Rules to determine whether you are responsible for the filing, administrative and arbitrator fees. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local government agencies or from seeking public injunctive relief in court where that right cannot be waived under applicable state law.
11.7 To not be bound by the arbitration agreement set forth in this section, within thirty (30) days of using our Services, you must notify Sleeper in writing of your intent to opt-out of the arbitration provisions. The written intent to opt-out must include your first and last name, username, and be provided either by: (a) sending an email to [email protected]; or (b) sending a letter to the following address: 548 Market Street, PMB 95988, San Francisco, CA 94104, Attn: Blitz Studios, Inc., Legal Department.

Each party acknowledges that it has not been induced to enter into these Terms by any representation or warranty other than those contained in these Terms.
12.2 Upon termination of your account, your license to use the Services terminates. All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall do so, including, without limitation, Sections 2, 3, 4 (except for 4.2), 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.
12.3 The failure of Sleeper to comply with any provision of these Terms due to an act of God, hurricane, pandemic, endemic, war, riot, earthquake, terrorism, act of public enemies, actions of governmental authorities outside of the control of Sleeper and/or other force majeure event will not be considered a breach of these Terms.

No person who is not a party to these Terms (other than any person specifically identified as a third-party beneficiary) shall have any right under any law to enforce any part of these Terms, and no consent is required from any third-party to change these Terms. No failure or delay by us to exercise or enforce any right or benefit under these Terms shall be deemed a waiver of such right or benefit nor operate to prevent or limit the future exercise or enforcement of that right or benefit. If any term or condition of these Terms is held invalid, void or otherwise unenforceable by any court, governmental agency or authority of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of these Terms shall remain valid and enforceable.
