Stick & Ball TV


Please carefully read these Terms of Use, along with the Privacy Policy and other policies or agreements referenced in these Terms of Use, before using the Stick & Ball TV Service. By using the Service, you agree to these Terms of Use, including without limitation, the arbitration agreement and class action waiver described in paragraph 23 below. Stick & Ball TV is a digital entertainment service (the “Service”) provided by Stick & Ball TV LLC or an entity affiliated to or licensed by it (“SBTV”). The Service enables our members to browse our catalogue, watch video content and/or other digital entertainment and training content over the Internet on compatible Internet connected TVs, computers, mobile phones, tablets and other devices. These Terms of Use (the “Terms of Use”) set forth the legal terms and conditions governing your use of the Service. Your use of the Service confirms your unconditional agreement to be bound by these Terms of Use and is subject to your continued compliance with these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms of Use, you acknowledge that you have no right or license to access or otherwise use the Service. Before using the Service, please review the related Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement, both of which are hereby by reference incorporated herein. Your use of certain products offered through the Service may require you to accept additional terms and conditions that apply to those products in addition to these Terms of Use. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between such additional terms and these Terms of Use, those additional terms will prevail with respect to your use of that particular product.

1. Eligibility

The Service is intended solely for users who are eighteen (18) years of age and older. Individuals who are under the age of eighteen (18) may access the Service only with the knowledge and consent of a parent or legal guardian, under such person’s Account, and otherwise in accordance with these Terms of Use. Certain parts of the Service may be subject to heightened age and/or other eligibility requirements.

2. Account Registration

Certain parts or features of the Service may require you to create a membership account (“Account”). To create an Account, you will be required to create a username and password, provide certain personal information about yourself (together, “Registration Information”), and provide a valid credit card or other accepted method of payment (a “Payment Method”). By providing the Payment Method, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use such Payment Method. The Payment Method and other billing information that you submit (“Personal Billing Information”) is a subset of your Registration Information. Your Personal Billing Information may be collected by an independent third party selected by, but not affiliated with, SBTV (the “Payment Processor”). The use of your Personal Billing Information will be used by SBTV in accordance with its Privacy Policy, but the use of your Personal Billing Information by any Payment Processor will be governed by such Payment Processor’s own independent privacy policy, and in the event the Payment Processor fails to comply with its own privacy policy or experiences a data breach that affects any of your Personal Billing Information or other data, SBTV will in no way be responsible or liable to you for such activity. You agree that you will not provide any false personal information to the Service, or create an Account for anyone other than yourself without permission. You will also not create more than one personal profile, and if you select a username for your Account, we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe appropriate (such as if a trademark owner complains about a username). If you register with the Service, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for restricting access to your compatible devices so that others may not access the password protected portion of the Service. To provide our members with easy access to their Accounts, SBTV may implement technology that recognizes you or your device and provides you with direct access to your Account without having to login or type in your password or other Account identifier. Take care in enabling this technology. You accept responsibility for all activities and transactions that occur under your Account, regardless of how it is accessed. Your Payment Method will be charged on a recurring basis until you duly cancel your membership before the next billing cycle begins or SBTV terminates it. Membership fees are fully earned upon payment. PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY-USED MEMBERSHIP PERIODS. We reserve the right to adjust the pricing for the Service at any time in our sole discretion. By providing a Payment Method, you authorize SBTV (or its Payment Processor) to charge the recurring membership fee at the then current rate. Your SBTV membership may begin with a free trial. You are allowed only one free trial period. We will begin billing your Payment Method for membership fees at the end of the free trial period. We may authorize your Payment Method as soon as you register. In some instances, this authorization may reduce your available balance or credit limit during the free trial period. When you set up an Account, you consent to receive communications from us electronically, and any agreements, notices, disclosures or other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing.

3. License to the Service

If we terminate your membership or disable your Account, you agree that you will not create another one or otherwise try to access the Service without our permission. You agree not to sell, transfer or assign your membership or any membership rights.

8. Unsolicited Submissions

SBTV is pleased to hear from its members and welcomes your comments regarding its Service. Unfortunately, however, SBTV’ long-standing company policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those it has specifically requested (see below). While we value your feedback on our services and products, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and that you not submit any creative ideas, suggestions or materials, including but not limited to stories or character ideas, screenplays or original artwork. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by SBTV’ or its affiliates' professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we ask that you do not send us any original creative materials such as show designs, photographs, drawings or original artwork that you expect to be compensated for or that you would like to keep private. If you send or post certain specific submissions at our request (e.g. via message boards or in connection with contests) or if you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, photographs, drawings, concepts, or any other information (“Submission(s)”) despite our request that you not send us any unsolicited Submissions or other creative materials, the Submission will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary in each instance. For purposes of this Paragraph, all User Content shall be deemed included in the definition of Submissions. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of SBTV, and SBTV shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Any Submission may be used by SBTV without restriction for any purpose whatsoever, including, without limitation, reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast or posting, and you hereby irrevocably waive, release and give up any claim that any use of such Submission violates any of your rights, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, moral rights, privacy rights, proprietary or other property rights, publicity rights, or right to credit for the material or ideas. SBTV shall have and is hereby irrevocably granted the right, but not the obligation, to reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, broadcast, license, perform, post, sell, translate, incorporate, create derivative works from, exploit, distribute and otherwise use the Submission in any and all media, now known or hereafter devised, throughout the universe, in perpetuity, without according you any compensation or credit.

Submissions to the Service and/or SBTV will not be acknowledged or returned. You agree and understand that SBTV is not obligated to use any Submission you make to the Service or SBTV and you have no right to compel such use. You hereby acknowledge and agree that your relationship with SBTV is not a confidential, fiduciary or other special relationship, and that your decision to submit any material to SBTV does not place SBTV in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to your Submission. You understand and acknowledge that SBTV has wide access to ideas, stories, designs and other literary materials, and that new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by SBTV’ own employees. Many ideas or stories may be competitive with, similar or identical to your Submission in structure, purpose, function, theme, idea, plot, format or other respects. You acknowledge and agree that you will not be entitled to any compensation as a result of SBTV’ use of any such similar or identical material. Finally, you acknowledge that, with respect to any claim you may have relating to or arising out of SBTV’ actual or alleged exploitation or use of any material you submit to the Service and/or SBTV, the damage, if any, thereby caused will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle you to injunctive or other equitable relief and your rights and remedies in any such event shall be strictly limited to the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law.

These Terms of Use, along with the Privacy Policy, End User License Agreement and any other policies expressly incorporated into these Terms of Use by reference, constitute the entire agreement between you and SBTV with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between the us with respect to the subject matter hereof. These Terms of Use may not be amended, nor any obligation waived, without SBTV’ written authorization. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision thereof. These Terms of Use shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to contracts entered into and fully performed in California (without regard to its conflicts of law principles that would cause the application of any other jurisdiction's laws). With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, you agree not to commence or prosecute any action in connection therewith other than in the state and federal courts of California, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of California. By using the Service in any way, you unconditionally consent and agree that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have against you may have against the SBTV Parties arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Service or the determination of the scope or applicability of these Terms of Use to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (2) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles, California; (4) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of these Terms of Use and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into in connection with the website; (5) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only your and/or the applicable SBTV Party’s individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any SBTV Party; (8) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any SBTV Party exceed $150 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, SBTV agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, SBTV will 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; and (9) with the exception of sub-clause (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, sub-clause (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor SBTV shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on JAMS and/or the rules of JAMS, visit their website at If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
