Hibbett attempts to be as accurate as possible, but Hibbett does not warrant that product descriptions are accurate, complete, current, reliable or error-free. If a product offered for purchase by Hibbett is not as described, your sole remedy shall be to return or exchange the product consistent with the Hibbett Return Policy. All descriptions, specifications, images, references and prices of products on Hibbett.com or a Hibbett Mobile App are subject to change at any time without notice. Inclusion of a product on Hibbett.com or a Hibbett Mobile App is not a guarantee that the product will be available. Certain weights, measurements and other descriptions are approximate and provided for purposes of convenience only.
If you choose to order a product on Hibbett.com or a Hibbett Mobile App you may be required to supply certain information necessary for Hibbett to process your order, including your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, your shipping information, and any other information without limitation. By supplying such information you grant Hibbett the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of processing an order initiated by you or on your behalf. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any credit card or other method of payment used in connection with any transaction.
Any order placed on the Platform is subject to Hibbett’s acceptance. Hibbett will not be deemed to have accepted any offer by you to purchase a product until both of the following have occurred: (i) we or a third party acting on our behalf have shipped the Product in your order and we have sent a shipment confirmation email to the email address associated with your order, and (ii) we have charged the credit card or other method of payment designated by you. Title to the product transfers to you upon shipment to you.
When using a Gift Card together with a credit card or debit card in payment for an Order, an authorization hold for the full amount of the Order will be placed on the credit card or debit card. After the Order ships, the credit card or debit card will be charged only for the portion of the Order price that is not paid using a Gift Card. The credit card or debit card authorization hold will be released within three (3) to five (5) business days after the Order ships.
Prices do not include shipping and handling, expedited service or sales tax, if applicable, which will be added to your total price during checkout. Hibbett may offer free shipping and handling for orders in excess of specified dollar amounts. Any such offer, if available at any given time, shall be indicated on Hibbett.com or a Hibbett Mobile App.

APPLICABLE LAW AND JURISDICTION
YOU AND HIBBETT AGREE THAT: (1) ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH ARBITRATION; (2) WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY; (3) RIGHTS THAT WE EACH WOULD HAVE IF WE WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, MAY BE MORE LIMITED OR MAY NOT EXIST; (4) WE EACH MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; AND (5) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
Any claim that all or part of this class action waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to your use of the Platform, User Created Content, your use of Content, or your purchase of a product using the Platform shall be settled by binding arbitration. You and Hibbett waive the right to go to court and agree to submit any claims to arbitration. This arbitration provision is governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we both retain the right to pursue in a small claims court any claim that is within that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. With the exception of residents in New Jersey, you and Hibbett agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim must be filed within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred.
The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules issued in Sept. 2014. Please contact the AAA for a copy of the rules. For your convenience, the arbitration may be conducted in the federal district where you reside. It may be held by telephone or through written submissions if both you and Hibbett agree. Any award rendered shall include a written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the FAA. This provision survives any termination of your access to the Platform or any other aspect of your relationship with Hibbett. If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable, then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION WITHIN THIRTY DAYS OF YOUR FIRST USE OF THE PLATFORM OR YOUR PURCHASE OF A PRODUCT (WHICHEVER IS FIRST) BY WRITING TO US VIA U.S. CERTIFIED MAIL, RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED, AT HIBBETT SPORTING GOODS, INC., 2700 MILAN COURT, BIRMINGHAM, AL 35211, ATTN: LEGAL DEPT.
