Your ability to purchase Merchandise, Tickets, Services and/or any other products offered via the Minor League Baseball Properties is subject to limits established by your card issuer. You must notify Minor League Baseball immediately of any change in your credit or debit card information, including any change to your home address. Minor League Baseball may bill your credit or debit card at the time the Services, Merchandise, Tickets or any other products offered via the Minor League Baseball Properties are ordered or shipped, and the appropriate Minor League Baseball club may bill your credit or debit card at the time your Tickets are ordered or shipped. You must pay all amounts accrued in your account, including sales tax and shipping and handling charges, when due. Minor League Baseball may in its sole discretion decline service to or terminate any account. Neither Minor League Baseball nor any Minor League Baseball club nor any Vendor or any operator of any Third Party Sales Location is responsible, and must not be held liable, for any breaches in transaction security by any third party.

By purchasing any Merchandise, Tickets, Services or any other products offered via the Minor League Baseball Properties, you acknowledge and agree that your credit or debit card is being charged by the payment processor of Minor League Baseball or a Minor League Baseball club or its Vendor, the operator of such product or service. For purposes of this Agreement, such payment processor will be referred to as a "Vendor."

E. Sales Tax

For certain purchases of Merchandise, Services or Tickets made via the Minor League Baseball and/or Vendor-operated Minor League Baseball Properties, Minor League Baseball is required to collect sales tax. In states or regions that impose sales or use tax, a purchase is subject to tax unless specifically exempt. Purchases from the Minor League Baseball Properties are not exempt from sales or use taxes simply because they are made from the Internet or because Minor League Baseball is not required to collect sales or use tax by any particular state or region. Whether any sales tax will be collected on a given purchase and the amount of tax charged depends on a number of factors including whether the seller is subject to tax in a given jurisdiction. The purchaser is responsible for any applicable taxes not collected by Minor League Baseball and 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, or otherwise contact, the applicable taxing authority. If any sales tax will be collected directly by Minor League Baseball in connection with a purchase, that amount will be shown either prior to the completion of any purchase or reflected in the final confirmation of that purchase.

For Oklahoma purchasers, applicable use tax on purchases made via the Minor League Baseball Properties may be reported and paid on an 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.

F. Billing and Automatic Renewal Policies for Certain Subscription Services

For certain Services billed on a monthly basis (e.g., MiLB.TV Monthly), the term begins when you purchase and ends on September 30 of that year, with monthly billing during each month of April-September at the then prevailing monthly rate.

Scheduled games may be cancelled or substituted when necessary. Applicable taxes are not included and are the responsibility of the subscriber. Blackout restrictions apply to Services which allow you to watch video of live games depending on the date of the game, your location and local, national and international broadcast exclusivities. Specifically:

Local Live Blackout - Select LIVE MiLB.TV games provided by regional sports networks will be blacked out in each applicable broadcast network's viewing territory.

In such a case, a temporary $1.00 authorization hold will be placed on your credit card, which will subsequently expire. You will not incur a charge for this authorization hold.

  1.

In agreeing to arbitrate all Claims, you and Minor League Baseball waive all rights to a trial by jury in any action or proceeding involving any Claim. The arbitration shall be held in New York County, New York, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. This arbitration undertaking is made pursuant to and in connection with a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act at 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
