You are responsible for all charges incurred during your use of WWE Network and the related services, including any charges incurred on your account by other parties. PLEASE NOTE THAT SUCCESSFUL REGISTRATION FOR A PAID SUBSCRIPTION TO THE WWE NETWORK IS SUBJECT TO OUR ACCEPTANCE AND CONFIRMATION TO YOU, WHICH MAY BE GIVEN OR REFUSED IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.
12 Month Gift Subscription. The 12 Month Gift Subscription may be purchased for yourself or used as a gift for someone else and grants the recipient access to the WWE Network, beginning on the date the recipient registers for the paid subscription and ending 12 months thereafter. THIS IS A 12 MONTH FIXED TERM CONTRACT WHICH IS PAID FOR IN FULL IN ADVANCE. IN CONTRAST TO A MONTH TO MONTH RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION, IT CANNOT BE CANCELLED WITHOUT CAUSE DURING THE 12 MONTH TERM.
Discontinuation of WWE Network. If we discontinue the WWE Network service, then we (i) will notify you by email, at the email address you provide to us during registration,(ii) may provide you with information about similar or new Services, and (iii) reserve the right to cancel the applicable service. We will give you at least one month’s notice of a discontinuation of the WWE Network. For Month-to-Month Recurring Subscriptions, we will not take payment from you for the month in which the discontinuation is effective (or thereafter). For a 12 Month Gift Subscription, you will be entitled to a partial refund in respect of the unexpired part of the relevant 12 month period following the date of discontinuation.
WWE NETWORK SUBSCRIBERS IN THE UK AND IRELAND ONLY: If you are a subscriber to the WWE Network in the UK or Ireland, please note that any Trial Subscription does not affect your legal rights to cancel during the ‘Cooling-Off Period’ (see further Cancellation/Refund Policy below). Accordingly, the Cooling-Off Period commences at the start of any Trial Subscription and if the Cooling-Off Period is longer than the Trial Subscription, your right to cancel (as set out below) will continue until the end of the Cooling-Off Period, notwithstanding the expiry of your Trial Subscription.
Sales / Use Taxes. WWE may be required to collect sales or use tax for certain purchases, including for the purchase of WWE Network subscriptions. In states or regions that impose a sales or use tax, certain purchases might be subject to tax even if WWE is not required to collect sales or use tax by any particular state or region. A purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog, or by other remote means. Whether sales or use tax will be collected on a given purchase and the amount of the tax charged depends on a number of factors including whether the seller is subject to a tax collection obligation in that state or region. The purchaser may be responsible for any taxes not collected by WWE. Certain states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return annually reporting taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay such tax. For details, see the website of the applicable taxing authority. If WWE collects sales or use tax in connection with a purchase, the amount of the tax will either be shown prior to completion of the purchase or reflected in the final confirmation of that purchase.
KENTUCKY: WWE is not required to and does not collect Kentucky sales or use tax. The Commonwealth of Kentucky requires Kentucky purchasers to report all purchases of tangible personal property or digital property that are not taxed by the retailer and pay use tax on those purchases unless exempt under Kentucky law. The tax may be reported and paid on the Kentucky individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return with the Kentucky Department of Revenue. These forms and corresponding instructions may be found on the Kentucky Department of Revenue's Internet Web site, http://revenue.ky.gov/.
OKLAHOMA: WWE is not required to and does not collect Oklahoma sales or use tax. The State of Oklahoma requires Oklahoma purchasers to report all purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases unless exempt under Oklahoma law. The tax may be reported and paid on the Oklahoma individual income tax return [Form 511] or by filing a consumer use tax return [Form 21-1]. The referenced forms and corresponding instructions are available on the Oklahoma Tax Commission website, www.tax.ok.gov.
WWE NETWORK SUBSCRIBERS IN UK AND IRELAND ONLY: If you are a subscriber to the WWE Network in the UK or Ireland, the cancellation/refund policy applies as set out in the above paragraph. You may use the methods above to cancel your subscription or you may also use the cancellation form (which can be found here). However, please note, in addition, that you have a legal right to cancel your subscription and receive a full refund (if we have taken any payments) at any time during the period commencing from the time at which we accept your order for the WWE Network and ending at the end of the 14th full day after the date on which we accepted your order (“Cooling-Off Period”) (unless you have agreed at the point of activating your subscription that you have lost the right to withdraw). Please note that if you have benefitted from a Trial Subscription, the Cooling-Off Period itself will expire at the end of the 14th full day after the date on which your Trial Subscription started (however long the Trial Subscription period is). For the avoidance of doubt, however, if your Trial Subscription period is longer than the Cooling-Off Period, your right to cancel without incurring any charges would continue for the remainder of the Trial Subscription period (subject to and in accordance with the terms of the relevant Trial Subscription). If you have a Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription, you may cancel it without cause at any time, but PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ANY CANCELLATIONS MADE IN THIS WAY AFTER EXPIRY OF THE COOLING-OFF PERIOD WILL ONLY BE EFFECTIVE AT THE END OF THE RELEVANT SUBSCRIPTION MONTH IN WHICH THE CANCELLATION IS MADE. This means that if you cancel for convenience after the Cooling-Off Period, you will have continued access to WWE Network for the remainder of the then current subscription month and will not receive a refund. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
System Requirements. WWE Network is a streaming service that supports 720p HD streaming, subject to content availability, device limitations and bandwidth. WWE content is streamed over the internet, not downloaded, so you must be connected to the Internet in order to view video content. System and Internet connectivity requirements to watch WWE on your TV through connected devices, mobile devices, and computers may be found here.
Access to Services: Access to WWE Network is subject to approval of your Payment Method information and verification of other information you submit to us or that is otherwise provided to us. Accordingly, if your payment (flat fee or monthly) cannot be processed for any reason, including because your Payment Method is no longer valid, we may terminate your access to the WWE Network immediately. Although your WWE Network subscription is accessible on a number of devices, your use is limited to one (1) WWE Network stream on one (1) device at any given time. IF YOU CIRCUMVENT OR ATTEMPT TO CIRCUMVENT ANY OF THE USE RESTRICTIONS IN THESE TERMS, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE TERMINATION AND YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL ACTION. SHARING OF LOGIN INFORMATION, INCLUDING PASSWORDS, IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.
To protect the security of your payment information in transmission, we employ reasonable technological measures including, where appropriate, Transport Layer Security technology (formerly referred to as secure socket layer technology (SSL) technology). When appropriate, we also may encrypt your payment information when we store your order and whenever we transfer that information to participating vendors or take other appropriate steps to protect the security of your personal information.
Please keep in mind that whenever you provide personal information online - for example, via message boards or chat - that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While WWE strives to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online; you make such disclosures at your own risk. You may not use or attempt to use the Services to collect personal information about other persons or in any other manner that is inconsistent with another person's privacy or personal data protection rights.
When you register as a Fan or when you register for certain Services, you will also be asked to choose a username, password or other identification information intended to restrict access to Participation and to otherwise protect your Membership from unauthorized access. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and other identification information. You agree not to use the account, username, password or other identification information of another Fan at any time or to disclose your identification information to any third party. You agree to notify WWE immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or access to your identification information. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your account. For the protection of Fans, WWE reserves the right to require or install revised account access procedures or applications at any time even though this may temporarily block access to certain parts of the Services.
Monitoring of Services
WWE expressly reserves the right to monitor any and all uses of the Services. However, WWE is under no obligation to do so, and we assume no responsibility or liability arising from our doing so or failure to do so. We assume no responsibility or liability arising from or relating to the content of any transmissions by third parties to or through the Services or for any error, omission, defamatory or libelous statement, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity or inaccuracy contained in any information transmitted by third parties to or through any location on the Services.
At times, WWE may solicit from Visitors to WWE Websites information that includes but is not limited to, creative ideas, concepts, know-how, techniques, suggestions, ideas, artwork or other materials. Of course, Visitors to a WWE Website have the ability to submit information of this type to us at any time even if we do not solicit it. Collectively this type of information, whether solicited by us or not, and whether or not posted to this Site or any other WWE Website, is referred to as "Submissions".
WWE does not want any video Submissions which involve stunts, tricks, or maneuvers that replicate, mimic, or portray in any fashion, the activities undertaken by WWE athletes and personnel. WWE would like to remind you that its Superstars are trained sports entertainers. You should never try to emulate what they do in and out of the ring.
By submitting any Submission, whether solicited by us or not, you are automatically granting WWE an ownership right and a perpetual, royalty-free, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide and irrevocable right and license to sell, rent, transfer, sub-license, use, reproduce, modify, publish, translate, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, perform, display or otherwise utilize such Submissions, in whole or in part, in any form, media or technology known or hereafter developed for any purpose, including, but not limited to, advertising and promotional purposes (collectively, "Rights").
This grant of Rights means that all Submissions will be owned by WWE and may be used by WWE for any purpose, now or in the future, without any payment to, or further authorization by, you. All Submissions, whether solicited or unsolicited, shall become and remain the property of WWE. WWE also has the right, but not the obligation, to use your name or the name of any entity owned or controlled by you in connection with the broadcast, print, online or other use or publication of your Submission. We assume no responsibility for reviewing such Submissions and we will not incur any liability as a result of any similarities between your Submissions and future WWE products or programs. In submitting a Submission to us, you represent that you have no reasonable basis to believe that the use of any such Submission by us would infringe upon the rights of any third-party.

Arbitration of Disputes; Class Action Waiver
The arbitration will be done by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of filing, arbitrator, and administration fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than US$10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. In addition, WWE will not seek attorney’s fees and costs in arbitration unless it is determined by the arbitrator that the claims are frivolous.
If your claim is worth US$10,000 or less, We agree that You may choose whether arbitration will be conducted by written submissions, telephone, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed upon location. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator's award.
Compared to lawsuits in court, arbitration is less formal. In arbitration, a neutral arbitrator is used instead of a judge or jury, and court review of the arbitration award is limited. An arbitrator has the ability to award the same relief and damages as a court.
As the sole exception to this arbitration requirement, a User may pursue a claim in small claims court provided such claim is within that court’s jurisdiction and provided that the User proceeds only on an individual basis.
If You choose to commence arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send a written notice to WWE by certified mail requesting arbitration or a small claim court action and describing your claim (“Notice”). Regardless of which party sends the Notice, it should describe the basis of the claim and set forth the specific relief sought. This letter must be addressed to: General Counsel, World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., 1241 E. Main Street, Stamford, CT 06902. If WWE initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address of the User used for access to the Services. If You and WWE do not reach an agreed upon resolution within 30 days of receiving notice, You or WWE have the right to begin an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. A form Notice to initiate arbitration can be copied or downloaded at www.adr.org.
For timeliness purposes, You and WWE agree to begin any arbitration or claim in small claims court within one year after a claim arises; otherwise, the claim is waived.
You and WWE also agree that any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor the WWE will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. We both also expressly waive the right to a trial by jury.
To the extent arbitration is not applicable, You and WWE agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts (as applicable) located in Fairfield County of the State of Connecticut. You agree that WWE may bring suit in a court of competent jurisdiction in Connecticut to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Digital Millennium Copyright Act
If you believe your work has been copied and posted on or through these Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please send WWE's Copyright Agent a notification of claimed infringement with all of the following information:
(a) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
(b) identification of the claimed infringing material and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (providing the URL(s) of the claimed infringing material satisfies this requirement);
(c) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address;
(d) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
(e) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf; and
(f) your physical or electronic signature.
