We also do not promote gambling in any way shape or form, as we merely provide fantasy football information, rankings, advice, projections and other fantasy sports-related content to users that so often play in free fantasy leagues for fun. We do not promote gambling and our DraftCalc.com users (or visitors) are not permitted to lure other DraftCalc.com users (or visitors) into gambling situations. DraftCalc.com reserves the right to delete/edit any gambling-related league/contest invitations, and violators of this sort of action will be subject to being banned from the site.

Subscriptions & Sign-Ups
We reserve the right to refuse the selling of our products or services to anyone, especially in cases where we determine that an individual is being abusive, obscene, or inappropriate to staff and/or other users. All refund requests for purchased products must be requested within 30 days of the purchase. Our content-based subscription product is good for the current fantasy football season being advertised (not multiple seasons); basically, once the NFL Super Bowl is over, a new fantasy season begins, thus our subscription years are every February through August (referred to as ‘FEB-AUG’). If one buys a 2014 FEB-AUG Subscription in July of 2014, that user will be able to view all paid content in 2014 (so through our 2014 FEB-AUG timeframe), however, when February 2015 rolls around, that 2014-bought subscription will not provide any 2015 subscription access. Each subscription is for one FEB-AUG timeframe. Also, we describe our subscription timeframe as FEB-AUG, however, we actually provide content up until kickoff of the fantasy season in question; what we mean by this is that if the 2014 NFL Season kicks off Week 1 of the 2014 NFL Season on September 6th, we will actually provide content for our FEB-AUG paid subscribers through that 6 day timeframe, meaning we call our subscription timeframe “FEB-AUG”, but it’s really February to ‘Kickoff’ (of Week 1) of that current/relevant NFL season.
DraftCalc reserves the right to add or discontinue any of its services without warning or notice, including products, features or services inside any of our content subscriptions or products. However, in most cases, we only add to our product lines, thus providing our subscribers and purchasers more products, features and information than originally described within any of our product, feature or service descriptions. DraftCalc, any of its writers, owners, partners or affiliates, make no guarantees about the advice and guidance provided by our products, features or services, nor do we make any guarantees about the accuracy of any of the information, services, features provided. We, and our products, are opinion-based, and we do not promote gambling in any way; our content, features, services and advice is merely opinion for leagues based on fun. By using our site, or any of the features, services or advice, you acknowledge that DraftCalc does not recommend, endorse or promote the use of our information, services or advice for the purposes of gambling. DraftCalc has no affiliation or relation to any Professional sports league or Team.
Contests & Giveaways
We reserve the right to terminate subscriptions that have been provided to users during promotions, for example, terminating a subscription due to a user being abusive, threatening, disruptive to the community, or if the user is doing anything else that we, DraftCalc (or staff) feel is unwarranted. In our “Win a FREE Lifetime Subscription” contest, “Lifetime” is considered for as long as DraftCalc remains under current management/ownership (current as the management at the time of the giveaway), and the promotion will only last for as long as the product that was given to the users remains. Meaning, if paid subscriptions are eliminated on the site, there would no longer be a “FREE Lifetime Subscription” product to provide for free. Price increases do not affect the “FREE Lifetime Subscription” product, meaning if that product, which is given to the user for the life of the product (and for as long as the product is under the management/ownership that provided it), will be provided to the user for FREE regardless of year-to-year price increases. As for our “Win a FREE Lifetime DraftCalc Subscription” product that relates to Photo submissions (for example our 2013 promotion), all entries must be submitted by the owner of the photo, or have complete and full rights to use the photo submitted. DraftCalc (DraftCalc, LLC) is not responsible for improper use of submitted photos, and we warn all users to submit only photos that they have ownership rights to, or rights of use, therefore, DraftCalc cannot be held liable for using submitted photos that violate such things; anyone that wishes to remove a photo from our submission promotions should email us immediately. Users do not have to physically be in the submitted photo, but again, the submitter must own the photo, or have rights to use the photo however they want. There will be only one winner of the 2013 “Win a FREE Lifetime DraftCalc Subscription (or other name variation) contest, although, DraftCalc reserves the right to offer secondary prizes to runner-ups.
Sketch Store Purchases
We do NOT copy other people’s work or art (and refuse to copy any copyrighted material), meaning we WILL NOT sketch athletes, or celebrities, based on references given by the purchaser. Instead, our “SketchStore” product is a work of standalone art that may, or may not, involve an athlete, or celebrity, and the artwork is NOT about the celebrity, or athlete, it is about the entire piece of art as a whole (unique colors, design, color usage, angles, expression, and shadowing). Sure, an athlete, or celebrity, might be integrated into the artwork that we originally create, but those figures are just one aspect of the artwork/sketch and are not necessarily the focal point of the piece. Note: All of our work is done in our style, shown via our example sketches here, so before purchasing, ensure that our style, through our examples, meets your expectation, as our style is quite unique, but displayed thoroughly through those examples (so check them out before you purchase!).
IMPORTANT: 1) Purchases sketches through DraftCalc may NOT be resold or redistributed; 2) We do NOT permit anyone to use any of our (DraftCalc) artwork/sketches unless the work has been purchased, or awarded (this includes the sketches used throughout the site on our site pages, and this also includes the examples displayed within our SketchStore). We also do not permit anyone to take/use sketches that we have made/created for other people; this means, if a customer of ours purchases (or is awarded) a custom sketch from the DraftCalc SketchStore, one cannot then take, or steal, that sketch/product from that person and attempt to use the sketch.

So, if you do not want emails from DraftCalc, including automatic emails generated by our forums, be sure to turn off this notification feature (within your forum user profile) as well as unsubscribe to our newsletters. Also, note that you could/will receive emails from DraftCalc upon our password retrieval process; meaning, if you forget your password, our site will send you an email if the retrieval processes is uses.
