Refunds

PickHoops generally cannot give refunds after the end of the 2nd round of the tournament. By that time, you should have a clear idea of what you've purchased, and we've done a lot of heavy lifting in terms of bandwidth, data, and server use.

Refunds of prizes purchased through PickHoops simply can't happen once you give us your shipping information. Refunds of prizes purchased through Cafe Press need to be taken up with Cafe Press; we cannot handle them.

We can't "downgrade" your account and refund the difference if you sign up to handle more entries than are actually used. We have to make our bandwidth and storage allowances based on how much you say you need before the tournament begins.

Tournament Cancellation

In the event that the NCAA cancels its tournament before the title game, group owners will be given the choice between a full refund and rolling over their group to the next year with a free upgrade in size.
