These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) describe the terms and conditions governing your use of the services, data, software, applications (including mobile applications), website (https://www.fowleravenue.com) (the “Website”), and tools (collectively “Services”) provided Fowler Avenue LLC (“Fowler Avenue,” “we,” “us”, or “our”).
These Terms contain provisions that govern how claims between you and us are resolved (see Section 11, Consent to Arbitration with Fowler Avenue below).
1. Changes to Terms and Services.
Fowler Avenue may change these Terms without notice to you. You should view these Terms often to stay informed of any changes that may affect you. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF SERVICES FOLLOWING THE POSTING OF REVISED TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY OF THE CHANGES, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT AND NOT USE ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICES.
The version of these Terms posted on each respective date you visit the Website and/or Services will be the Terms applicable to your access and use of the Services on that date. We reserve the right to terminate these Terms, or to refuse, restrict, or discontinue access to or use of the Services (or any portions, components, or features thereof) to you or any other person or entity, if you are in breach of the Terms or for any reason or for no reason whatsoever, at any time, without notice or liability.
We may update the content on the Services from time to time, but the content is not necessarily complete or up to date. Any of the material on the Website or other Services may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.
Fowler Avenue is a private organization that provides member-users (users) the ability to join an exclusive community of USF fans and gain exclusive access to USF athletes through member-only activities and benefits. The benefits that Fowler Avenue members receive, the services that Fowler Avenue provides to members, and activities available to Fowler Avenue members will collectively be known as the “Services.” Fowler Avenue is primarily a monthly subscription-based organization. Anyone 18 and older may join Fowler Avenue by entering the Website https://www.fowleravenue.com and signing up for an account. Membership requires non-refundable monthly payments.
There are multiple membership options available to Fowler Avenue members. With each membership option, the monthly price increases and the Fowler Avenue benefits available to the member increases.
Fowler Avenue members receive exclusive access to the Services. These include, but are not limited to, access to in-person events with fellow members and USF athletes, such as camps and clinics, social events, meet and greets, autograph sessions, and private events, discord community groups, exclusive apparel and goods, and virtual events featuring USF athletes.
By using the Website and Services, you agree that you are making use of our Services at your own risk.
3. Accounts, Passwords, and Security.
To view or browse the Fowler Avenue Website and/or otherwise utilize the Services, you may be obligated to create an account using an email address and password. When you register to create an account, you agree to provide accurate information about yourself and must not register under a false name or age or use an unauthorized payment method. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify Fowler Avenue immediately upon learning of any unauthorized use of your account or password, or any other unauthorized access or breach of security. However, you may be held liable for losses incurred by Fowler Avenue or any other person or entity due to another person using your account or password. You may not transfer or assign your account. You have the right to cancel your account at any time. You understand and agree that, except as expressly provided by law, the cancellation of your account is your sole right and remedy with respect to any dispute you may have with us.
4. Pricing and Fees.
(a) Pricing Information. All pricing and fees for the Services are set forth on the Website (“Membership Packages”). You agree that Fowler Avenue is not responsible for reporting, collection or payment of any taxes on your behalf. Certain features of the Service, such as the main membership subscription service, may require you to pay fees, including all applicable taxes. Fowler Avenue reserves the right to determine pricing for the Service. Fowler Avenue may change the fees for any feature of the Service, including additional fees or charges, if Fowler Avenue gives you advance notice of changes before they apply. Fowler Avenue, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and different pricing to any of Fowler Avenue users or members. These promotional offers, unless made to you, will not apply to your offer or this Agreement.
(b) Memberships. The Fowler Avenue membership pricing is currently:
Green Level - $10.00 per month
Gold Level - $25.00 per month
1956 - $56.00 per month
Stampede - $100.00 per month
Horns Up - $200.00 per month
(c) Payment Methods. Payment may be made through Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal accounts. Payments are non-refundable and there is no monthly minimum for memberships. The membership fees are recurring and will automatically be charged to each account on the 1st day of each new month. Memberships may be cancelled through the Website at any time.
(d) General Payment Terms. Before you pay any fees, you will have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. Unless otherwise agreed, all fees are in U.S. Dollars and are non-refundable. Fowler Avenue reserves the right to change the required method of payment at any time, upon notice to you. You are responsible for updating your account information should the required payment method change. Monthly billing will be based upon the number of users at the beginning of the period, plus prorated billing for any added users and without reduction for users removed during the period. All fees paid hereunder are non-refundable and non-recoupable. You agree that your purchases under this Agreement are neither contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features of the Service nor dependent on any oral or written public comments made by us regarding future functionality or features.
(e) Subscription Service. The Service may include automatically recurring payments for periodic charges (“Subscription Service”). If you activate a Subscription Service, you authorize Fowler Avenue to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until cancellation of either the recurring payments or your account, all accrued sums on or before the payment due date for the accrued sums. The “Subscription Billing Date” is the date when you purchase your first subscription to the Service. Your account will be charged automatically on the Subscription Billing Date all applicable fees and taxes for the next subscription period. The subscription will continue unless and until you cancel your subscription, or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid charging of the next periodic Subscription Fee to your account.
(f) Delinquent Accounts. Fowler Avenue may suspend or terminate access to the Service, including fee-based portions of the Service, for any account for which any amount is due but unpaid. In addition to the amount due for the Service, a delinquent account will be charged with fees, charges or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that are incidental to any chargeback or collection of any the unpaid amount, including collection fees.
Fowler Avenue may monitor the integrity of the Website and Services and may take steps to protect the Website and Services determined by Fowler Avenue in its sole discretion.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND Fowler Avenue HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) or preempted by federal law, the laws of the State of Florida, 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 Fowler Avenue. Legal notices shall be served on Fowler Avenue’s national registered agent (in the case of Fowler Avenue) or your email address on file with us (in your case). Notice by us to you shall be deemed given twenty-four (24) hours after the email is sent. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to the physical address you have on file with us.

THE PARTIES FURTHER AGREE THAT, IF AND TO THE EXTENT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATION DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY CLAIM, THAT CLAIM WILL BE TRIED BEFORE A JUDGE SITTING WITHOUT A JURY.
YOU AND Fowler Avenue AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND Fowler Avenue AGREE OTHERWISE IN A SEPARATE WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING.

ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER Fowler Avenue USERS. IF A COURT DECIDES THAT APPLICABLE LAW PRECLUDES ENFORCEMENT OF ANY OF THIS PARAGRAPH’S PROHIBITIONS ON CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS AS TO ANY CLAIM, THEN THAT CLAIM (AND ONLY THAT CLAIM) MUST BE SEVERED FROM THE ARBITRATION AND RESOLVED IN COURT, SUBJECT TO YOUR AND Fowler Avenue’S RIGHT TO APPEAL THE COURT’S DECISIONS. ALL OTHER CLAIMS WILL BE ARBITRATED.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms and Agreement to Arbitrate, any part of it, or of the Terms including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate or the Terms is void or voidable.

All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
If you and Fowler Avenue are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Fowler Avenue may initiate arbitration proceedings. The party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send a copy to Fowler Avenue at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the event Fowler Avenue initiates arbitration against you, it will send a copy of the completed form to the physical address we have on file associated with your Fowler Avenue account. Any settlement offer made by you, or Fowler Avenue shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.
The arbitration shall be held in Broward County, FL or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Fowler Avenue may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Fowler Avenue, subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing. In cases where an in- person hearing is held, you and/or Fowler Avenue may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
With the exception of any of the provisions in the CLASS ACTION WAIVER, if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply.
