Last updated April 20, 2023

1. Agreement To Terms

About your access to and use of the https://www.sportssio.com website, as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website, or mobile application related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto (collectively, the “Site”), you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity (“you”) and Sportssio (“Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). You acknowledge and accept that you have read, comprehended, and agreed to be bound by all of these Conditions of Use before visiting Sportssio.

You are strictly forbidden from using Sportssio and must stop using it right away if you disagree with any or all of these terms of use.

Sportssio may occasionally post additional terms and conditions or documents, which are thus explicitly incorporated herein by reference. We retain the right to periodically update or modify these Conditions of Use at our sole discretion. The “Last updated” date of these Conditions of Use will be updated to inform you of any updates, and you renounce any claim to specific notice of any change. Every time you use our Site, please make sure to check the applicable Terms to know which ones are in effect. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, the changes in any revised Terms of Use by your continued use of Sportssio after the date such revised Terms of Use are posted.

The information on Sportssio is not intended to be shared with or used by any person or organization in any jurisdiction or nation where doing so would be against the law or a rule, or if doing so would require us to register there. As a result, anybody choosing to access Sportssio from another place does so of their own free will and is entirely responsible for adhering to local laws, if and to the extent that they apply.

Sportssio is not tailored to comply with industry-specific regulations (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), etc.), so if your interactions would be subjected to such laws, you may not use this Site. You may not use Sportssio in a way that would violate the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).

Sportssio is intended for users who are at least 18 years old. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to use or register for Sportssio.
