Additional Terms For Perfect Draft Challenge Promotions

In order to be eligible to play any games for money on the FFN website, you (hereby defined as "member") must be at least eighteen (18) years of age, and a resident of the United States. Citizens of states where such activity is prohibited are not eligible to play games for money on the FFN website. Additionally, members are eligible to participate in for-money contests on the FFN website if they meet the following criteria, as outlined in the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006:

  1. All prizes and awards offered to winning participants are established and made known to the participants in advance of the game or contest and their value is not determined by the number of participants or the amount of any fees paid by those participants.
  2. All winning outcomes reflect the relative knowledge and skill of the participants and are determined predominantly by accumulated statistical results of the performance of individuals (athletes in the case of sports events) in multiple real-world sporting or other events.
  3. No winning outcome is based: a) on the score, point spread, or any performance or performances of any single real world team or any combination of such teams; or b) solely on any single performance of an individual athlete in any single real-world sporting or other event.

A winning roster will consist of the top scoring players from Week 1 - 16 (hereby defined as "the season") using the point allocations as outlined on the contest website. There may be multiple players chosen at a specific position. The ranking must be exact. For example, the player chosen for the RB1 spot must finish as the highest scoring fantasy running back for the season. The player assigned to the RB2 spot must finish the season as the second-highest scoring fantasy running back for the season. Only rosters with a unique player in each position will be considered valid.

Rosters may be modified until the NFL season is officially underway as determined by FFN. It is the responsibility of the member to fill in a complete roster. Any roster spot left unfilled will not be scored.

Specific information regarding the season schedule is available at the official NFL.com website. In the event of an unforeseen interruption to the schedule, FFN may modify the season definition as necessary and amend the contest in its sole discretion. Potential actions may include, but are not limited to, cancellation of the contest, issuing refunds (whether full or partial) of the entry fees, and/or modifying the season length. FFN reserves the right to retain any fees to cover costs incurred with such activities. Any actions will be communicated via email to all affected members.

Winning entries will be paid out via FFN promo codes, PayPal money transfer, or check. Any costs associated with such payment method will be the responsibility of the member and may be deducted from the winning prize. Promo codes and PayPal transfers will not incur any charge. Payments made via paper check will incur a $4.00 charge. Payments made via electronic bank transfer will incur a $5.00 charge. All payments whether to FFN or member will be conducted in the US Dollar currency.

If a member makes a payment to FFN and subsequently the member (or the member's banking institution or credit card company) initiates a reversal or chargeback of any amount, FFN reserves the right to freeze all member funds until such a time as the reversal or chargeback has been resolved and/or remove the member's entries from the FFN website. Members agree that funds lost due to reversals and chargebacks are the obligation of the member and will be paid back to FFN.

It is the sole responsibility of each Member to determine the applicability of any taxes that may be due as a result of participation in a FFN contest. FFN is not responsible for tax advice, calculation of taxes that may be due, or reporting tax data to any agency. This applies to all agencies and levels of government unless specifically required by law.

All payments to FFN for participation in the form of entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

The integrity of the game is of utmost importance to FFN. Only one (1) account per member will be allowed access to participate in any FFN game and is subject to any limitations as defined by the game (example: max entries per member). Members found to have created additional entries using multiple accounts may have their accounts closed, entries invalidated, and agree to waive their rights to already purchased entry fees. Members found in violation of these terms will forfeit any payments made and waive any right to claim any winnings whatsoever. Upon termination of your account, your right to use the Site and Services will immediately cease.
