Terms and Conditions
OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAM
The OFFICIAL NASCAR® MEMBERS CLUB (SM) program (the "Club" or the "Program") is offered by NMP, LLC (the "Company") to permit members of the Club ("Members") the opportunity to get closer to the sport of stock car racing, the drivers, the teams, the industry product and service providers, and other "hardcore" fans of NASCAR® racing. Members have the opportunity to take advantage of benefits and rewards offered through the Program from the Company and its participating Program sponsors, licensors, affiliates, partners and service providers, including, but not limited to, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Inc. ("NASCAR") and the NASCAR® drivers, teams and tracks (together, "Associates").
PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM
In order to participate in the Program, individuals must be thirteen (13) years of age or older and a resident of the U.S., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands or Canada. However, persons who are under eighteen (18) years of age must have an adult register them for the Program with a gift membership. Please be advised certain Club experiences are only available to individuals eighteen (18) years of age or older. If you do not qualify, please do not attempt to participate. In order to participate, an individual must be a Member in good standing. The Program is void where prohibited or restricted by law. The Program is intended to be suitable for all ages. However, the Program reserves the right to limit the access of minor Members to certain rights, benefits, offerings or privileges of the Program which the Company deems unsuitable to minors or in order to comply with applicable law. To participate, you must complete an application. You may be required to enter your first and last name, a login name, password, date of birth (DOB), mailing and e-mail addresses, telephone number, country of residence, password hint, display name, gender, and favorite driver. If the Company accepts your application to become a Member and upon receipt of the membership dues described below, the Company will establish an account in your name ("Account"). Individuals may only become involved as Members in their own name and may not transfer any benefits or rights under the Program to other parties. Members may not represent or act as a proxy for other Members or other parties, except for adults registering minors as members. Membership is personal to the Member and is not transferable to any other person or entity. Members are responsible for all use of their Accounts (under any screen name or password) and for ensuring that all use of their Account complies fully with these Terms and Conditions. Members shall be responsible for protecting the confidentiality of their password(s), if any. Each Member is responsible for ensuring that the information in his or her Account is accurate and is kept current.
Participation in the Program may be conditioned upon payment by Members of program dues, service charges, and other fees and expenses, in the sole discretion of the Company. Unless otherwise specified by the Company, such dues and other amounts may only be paid by credit card.
If a person elects to join the Club on an annual basis, membership in the Club is valid for a term of one (1) year only and requires payment, each year, of the annual, non-refundable membership dues. Each membership must be properly renewed by the Member each year in order to maintain the membership in force. The Company will send Members an annual renewal notice seven (7) days prior to the expiration of their current membership term. Except where prohibited by applicable law, the Company will automatically renew the membership and charge the Member's credit card of record for the annual membership fee unless the Member notifies the Company prior to the exercise of the membership term that the Member does not wish to renew their membership. If the Company cannot obtain credit card authorization when renewing the membership, the applicable Member's membership will not be renewed and such Member must re-apply for a new membership. Gift memberships will not be automatically renewed, but a renewal notice for gift memberships will be sent to both the person who gave the gift membership and the Member.
If a person elects to join the Club on a monthly basis, membership in the Club is valid on a month to month basis and requires payment, each month, of the monthly, non-refundable membership dues. Except where prohibited by applicable law, the Company will automatically renew the membership and charge the Member's credit card of record for the monthly membership fee unless the Member notifies the Company by calling 1-877-696-2722 prior to the expiration of the current monthly term that the Member does not wish to renew their monthly membership. After a Member has enrolled and paid at least one monthly payment, in the event the Company cannot obtain a valid card for a subsequent monthly dues payment, the Company (or its designated collections agency) will try to obtain such payment from the applicable Member for a period of thirty (30) days (during which period the Member shall remain enrolled in the Club). If no payment is obtained after the expiration of such thirty (30) day period, such Member's membership shall automatically be terminated. Gift monthly memberships will only be valid for one (1) year, but a renewal notice for gift monthly memberships will be sent prior to the expiration of such one (1) year period to both the person who gave the gift membership and the Member.
The Company may occasionally offer promotional free provisional memberships to persons that sign up for a free provisional membership. Except where prohibited by applicable law, such provisional membership will be automatically renewed at the applicable normal annual membership rate at the end of the provisional period, unless such persons cancel at least forty-eight (48) hours (or such longer period of time as specified by the Company in writing in the particular offer) before the end of the provisional period. Only one (1) free provisional membership is allowed per person. Subsequent enrollments do not qualify for free provisional review periods.
The Company may offer coupons or other promotional offers from time to time. In these situations, a special discounted price may be applicable for a term, followed by a higher price after the initial promotional term. By enrolling pursuant to any such offer, such Members will be responsible for all payments as specified in the offer, and agree that the Company may adjust the pricing of such plans, as specified in the applicable offer, promotional materials or coupon, without further notice or other communication to such Members.
The Company may occasionally piggyback other free offers with the free provisional offer. Persons enrolling in the Club pursuant to such offers must actually complete the free provisional review and be charged one time before they are eligible to receive the additional free offer.
Credit Card Authorization
Each Member is responsible for paying the periodic dues specified above, and hereby authorizes the Company to charge the Member's credit card to pay for the dues (according to the terms set forth above) via automatic debit. Each Member acknowledges and agrees that the authorization to charge the Member's credit card for services shall automatically transfer to any successors or assigns of the Company for substantially similar services to those offered by the Club. A Member may not assign or transfer his or her membership to any other person or entity. Each member further agrees to complete, and assent to the terms of, the Company's then current credit card authorization form.
When cancellation of membership is requested by a Member, there is no refund for any unused portion of the current membership (except where required by applicable law). A Member must call the Company at 1-877-696-2722 to request a cancellation of his or her membership; provided, as set forth above, a Member enrolled on a monthly basis must cancel his or her membership seven (7) days prior to the expiration of the current monthly term in order to avoid being charged the next month's dues.
Any Member who chooses to participate in a VIP Experience through the VIP Reservation Allocation System or by calling the Company, will no longer be eligible for a refund after the experience date even if the Member is within the refundable time period of the membership.
