ConnectLAX aims to connect the lacrosse community. In this mission, ConnectLAX offers both free and paid services.
A Member shall be defined as a person or entity that has registered on the Website seeking services offered by ConnectLAX, or seeking to use the services of ConnectLAX as a player, parent, instructor, coordinator or coach, or otherwise create a public profile on the Website.
ConnectLAX reserves the right to immediately remove any Member for any or no reason from the Website, or any portion thereof, at any time. You acknowledge and agree that ConnectLAX may store removed information at its sole discretion and shall have the right to display public information of removed accounts. You acknowledge and agree ConnectLAX is not liable for any lost or intentionally deleted information or data.
Registration for Membership and Eligibility
ConnectLAX has different eligibility requirements for its Network, Video and Sessions services.
Network service. ConnectLAX does not monitor the Network, and relies on user complaints to alert it to improper conduct, which ConnectLAX endeavors to eliminate through enforcement of this agreement or deactivation of Network services on a case by case basis. For the Network service, you must be thirteen (13) years of age or older to register as a Member of ConnectLAX. If you register as a Member of ConnectLAX, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the appropriate registration or application form, and (b) to maintain and update your information to keep it accurate, current, and complete.
If you register as a Member of ConnectLAX, you represent and warrant that you and each member of your household have never been arrested for, charged with, or convicted of a felony or any criminal offense involving violence, abuse, neglect, fraud or larceny, or any offense endangering the safety of others and that you have not been or are not currently required to register as a sex offender with any government entity. The service is currently only available to United States citizens and/or any individuals who are legally in the jurisdiction of the United States.
Video service. ConnectLAX films lacrosse events, including but not limited to tournaments, try-outs and showcases. ConnectLAX provides filming and editing services to event participants. All individual event video packages, including but not limited to game film and highlight videos, are strictly meant for individual use by the original purchaser only. Posting game film online (including sites such as Youtube, Vimeo or Hudl) and/or any sharing of such content by other players, parents, clubs or anyone beside the original purchaser is unauthorized use. Posting individual highlight videos, defined as one video file with less than 30 game film clips under 60 seconds each in length, does not constitute unauthorized use. Unauthorized use is a violation of the individual license and is strictly prohibited unless an additional license is obtained from ConnectLAX.
Team film packages include a team license that permit sharing among the the team's players, parents and coaches. Sharing team film with an opposing team or any players, parents and coaches not on the original team purchaser is unauthorized use. Unauthorized use is a violation of the team license and is strictly prohibited.
In addition to all rights and remedies under the law, ConnectLAX reserves the right to execute take-down proceedings and/or damages for any unauthorized use of its game film, at its own discretion. ConnectLAX may delay the download of game film from its website to help prevent unauthorized use. For the avoidance of doubt, any member that has access to download game film from the website, specifically from that members video library, is no longer eligible to receive a refund from ConnectLAX.
Video refund policy.
ConnectLAX has a strict refund policy but allows partial and full refunds in certain circumstances.
Full refunds will be given for the below.
If a purchaser decides to cancel an order 10 or more days before the event start date, then email us to receive a full refund. The days in advance is determined by when we receive the email. Include the purchaser name and email along with the event.
In the case of a medical emergency where illness or injury prevents an athlete from participating in the event, a full refund will be provided. All requests must be verified in writing by a licensed physician and must be submitted via email within 5 days of the event. Requests can be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org in addition to messaging through the website.
If you purchased a highlight video without game film when you meant to purchase an event video package with game film, we will provide a full refund of your highlight video upon confirmation of your video package order. Forward your event package confirmation email to us with a request to refund your highlight video purchase.
If you purchased game film only, and later realize your team already purchased game film for the whole team, you will receive a full refund.
Partial refunds will be given for the below.
If we miss a quarter, half, or entire game from your event, we will prorate refund you for the missing footage. For example. If your package includes 4 games and we miss a quarter, then we'll prorate refund you 1/16th of the price of your event package price. If we issue a partial refund due to missing footage, you will still receive a highlight video and recruiting profile as an appreciation of your understanding if they were included in your event package. Full refunds in the case of partially missing footage are not available.
To provide the best elevation from the best vantage point (example, not shooting into the sun), we often use hi-pods at events. These provide 15-21 feet of elevation but may result periods where the action is out of frame if we need to adjust the equipment during or between action. We apologize if this impacts your game film and will provide a partial refund for periods of adjustment just like we do for missing footage.
If you purchase a 10-Play or 20-Play video package including game film, a highlight video and profile and later realize your team also purchased game film, then you may receive a partial refund. The partial refund is the difference between your video package price and the standard price of a highlight video without game film, which is $100 for 10-Play and $180 for 20-Play. For example, if you paid $200 for a 10-Play video package and later asked for a refund, you would receive a partial $100 refund, which is the $200 you paid less the $100 standard price of a highlight video, which remains as a highlight video credit in your recruiting profile.
If you purchased a 10-Play or 20-Play video package and are less than 10 days from the event and thus not eligabile for a full refund, you may request a partial refund using this methodology.
No refunds will be given for the below.
Refunds are not given for weather or elevation constraints impacting film quality or partial attendance at the event venue. Game cancellations due to weather, rescheduling, or field changes with less than 24 hours written notice may result in a partial refund at the sole discretion of ConnectLAX.
Refunds are not given for games we've filmed where the player had poor performance, was injured during the game / event, or was benched by the coach for any portion of the game.
You have 60 days from the date of receiving your game film to contact us regarding a refund. After 60 days, no refunds are given.
Sessions service. For the Sessions service, you must be eighteen (18) years of age or older or be thirteen (13) years of age or older AND have the consent of a parent or legal guardian in order to use the ConnectLAX Sessions service.
Children under the age of thirteen (13) are not permitted to register as a Member of either ConnectLAX or Sessions, make use of or submit any information to the Website. ConnectLAX will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of thirteen (13) and requires Website users to identify their age when registering as a Member.
