Hoosiers Connect Terms and Conditions
Hoosiers Connect Inc (“HCI”) is a non-profit corporation that helps commercial enterprises
promote their businesses, services, and products by engaging with Indiana University student-
athletes to use their name, image, and likeness (“NIL”). HCI is making available to approved
participants a series of exclusive benefits according to the participation tier joined. Participation
in HCI does not make the contributing individual or organization a member of HCI, or confer
any rights or obligations with respect to HCI except as described in these Terms and Conditions.
A condition of being a participant of HCI is agreement to all of these Terms and Conditions. HCI
retains sole discretion to admit interested participants into HCI.
HCI Tier Participation Levels
HCI will offer different tiers of participation. Each tier of participation will have a list of core
benefits the participant will receive along with a list of additional benefit options from which the
participant can select. HCI will provide the participant with the cost of each tier of participation
along with the list of benefits associated with each tier.
Required HCI Tier Participant Contributions
The admitted participants of HCI commit to a one-year participation at the established
contribution level for the tier of participation selected. An HCI participant’s participation year
shall commence on the date the participant agrees to these Terms and Conditions and will run for
one year. HCI participants may pay their required contribution by paying either (a) one lump-
sum at the time they sign up for HCI or (b) monthly installments for each month of their
participation year. By selecting a participation tier via the appropriate link on the HCI website,
the admitted participant is agreeing to comply with these Terms and Conditions and make the
required contributions corresponding to that tier.

participation tier selected) shall automatically renew for a one-year participation on the

separate transaction for the authorized recurring payment.
- You shall comply with all laws, rules, and regulations governing NIL.
- HCI retains sole discretion to cancel participation in HCI for “Cause.” A termination by
HCI is for “Cause” if (a) you are in material breach of these Terms and Conditions or (b)
if, in the sole judgment and discretion of HCI’s Executive Director, your actions are
determined to be immoral, deceptive, scandalous, or obscene or otherwise reasonably
likely to injure, tarnish, damage, or otherwise negatively affect the reputation or goodwill
associated with HCI. If HCI terminates your participation, you will not be obligated to
make any further payments. However, any payments already received by HCI shall not

able to accommodate those preferences and that HCI retains sole discretion to determine
how it will provide the benefits contemplated under these Terms and Conditions.

otherwise liable for any costs or losses you sustain or incur if HCI’s performance of its

Conditions operates or may be construed as a waiver thereof.

accordance with and pursuant to the internal laws of the State of Indiana, without regard
