This Agreement sets out your rights and obligations, and those of Cheeky Media Limited, a company registered in England under registration no. 4920949 ("mygolfexperience.com", "we" or "us"), in relation to this site and the services offered by mygolfexperience.com through it (the "mygolfexperience Service"). By registering for the mygolfexperience Service, you agree to the terms of this Agreement, and you re-affirm that agreement every time you use it. Visitors to the mygolfexperience Service who do not register to become a Member (see 2 below) similarly affirm that they are bound by this Agreement each time they access the mygolfexperience Service. You should be aware that this Agreement may change from time to time in accordance with Clause 24 below.
2. Types of membership
People who register for the mygolfexperience Service become "Members". They must be at least 18 years of age. The Membership divides between those who decide to pay our fee membership (which we call "Full Members"), and those who do not ("Free Members").
As well as being able to browse the mygolfexperience Service like any visitor to it, Free Members may:
-record an unlimited number of golf scorecards and view their last 3 scorecards online;
-create a golf society and add their golfing partners, including posting notices on the society’s message board;
-join another person as a Standard Member; and
-search for a golf course online.
In addition to the facilities available to Free Members, Full Members may:
-record and view an unlimited number of scorecards online and analyse their golf results in detail
We are not an internet service provider, however. In order to avail of the mygolfexperience Service, you must have internet access and all the software (and skills) required for email and web usage.
3. Full Membership: Important
If you decide to become a Full Member, and therefore pay our Full Membership fee, you are agreeing to take the Full Membership we make available to you shortly after that fee is paid. You will not be entitled to any refund of that fee. Your Full Membership will last for twelve months. If you wish to continue with Full Membership after the expiry of that twelve month period, we will enable you to do so, at our then-current terms and prices. Please note that we reserve the right to change the amount of the fee for Full Membership, the period which it covers, the services which it enables you to obtain and other factors from time to time. However, these changes, unless they are changes under Clause 8 or Clause 9 below, will not affect your then-current Full Membership.
You undertake to register for the mygolfexperience Service using accurate and current information about yourself – including your correct email address and any other requested details. You also undertake only to add your accurate golf scorecards on the mygolfexperience Service. If you are asked for, and provide, details of a credit, debit or charge card; in that event, you must ensure that (a) you are fully entitled to use that card, and (b) it has available funds sufficient to cover the charges which are deducted from it.
As part of the registration process for the mygolfexperience Service, you will receive a verification email, the purpose of which is to take reasonable steps to ensure that the email address you have nominated during registration is controlled by you. That email contains simple instructions which you must follow.
5. Forming societies
As either a Free Member or a Full Member you may form a society for the purpose of interacting with fellow golfing partners. The Member who forms the society is responsible for the content on that society’s pages, including any notices or communication placed on the society’s noticeboard. In all other respects, the society formed using the mygolfexperience Service must comply with these terms and conditions, as altered from time to time.
