PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN GOLF AUSTRALIA (“GA”) AND THE INDIVIDUAL ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT (“AUTHORISED USER” OR “YOU”). THIS AGREEMENT GOVERNS YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF THE GA SERVICES. GA’S INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE POLICIES WITH RESPECT TO USER INFORMATION ARE SET OUT IN THE GENERAL PRIVACY POLICY, WHICH IS INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE FOR ALL PURPOSES. THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS (INCLUDING MOBILE APPS) ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED FROM EXTRACTING OR OBTAINING ANY DATA, EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FROM THE GA SERVICES UNLESS EXPRESSLY AUTHORISED BY GA. INDIVIDUALS WHO ACCESS AND USE THE GA SERVICES MUST NOT FACILITATE, ENCOURAGE OR OTHERWISE PERMIT ANY EXTRACTION OR OBTAINING OF DATA FROM THE GA SERVICES, EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, BY THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS (INCLUDING MOBILE APPS), UNLESS SUCH EXTRACTION OR OBTAINING OF DATA FROM THE GA SERVICES HAS BEEN EXPRESSLY AUTHORISED BY GA. BY USING THE GA SERVICES, YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, POWER AND AUTHORITY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE GA SERVICES. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH THE GA SERVICES WITHOUT THE EXPRESS PERMISSION OF YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN (WHEN THIS PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN IS LEGALLY PERMITTED TO AUTHORISE SUCH DATA PROVISION). IF GA LEARNS WE HAVE COLLECTED PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM A PERSON UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WITHOUT SUCH PERMISSION, WE WILL DELETE THIS INFORMATION. 1. LICENCE a. GA Websites. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, GA grants to the Authorised User during the Subscription Term (as defined below) a limited, personal, non-commercial, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-assignable and revocable licence to access the GA Websites to which such Authorised User is permitted access. b. GA Mobile Apps. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, GA grants to Authorised User during the Subscription Term a limited, personal, non-commercial, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-assignable, revocable licence to reproduce a copy of the GA Mobile App on Authorised User’s mobile device solely for personal use to access the functionalities to which such Authorised User is permitted access. c. Limits on Licences. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the licences provided in clause 1a and 1b cannot be sublicensed, transferred or assigned by the Authorised User to any third party. 2. REGISTRATION AND USER ACCOUNT a. Authorised User Credentials. To the extent the Authorised User has access to any GA Services as a Registered User (defined below), the Authorised User acknowledges the access credentials are personal to Authorised User and Authorised User is prohibited from sharing any access credentials with any other person, or with any other entity, for any purpose. “Registered User” means an Authorised User who has access to the GA Services by way of a user name and password or other access credentials. 3. TERM; TERMINATION a. This Agreement commences on the date Authorised User accepts, accesses or otherwise uses the GA Services and shall remain in effect while Authorised User continues to access the GA Services or GA terminates this Agreement (whichever is earlier) (“Subscription Term”). b. GA may terminate, change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the GA Services at any time with or without notice. Without limiting the foregoing, GA may restrict, suspend or terminate Authorised User’s access or use of the GA Services if GA believes Authorised User is in breach of this Agreement or applicable law, or for any other reason without notice or liability. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, Authorised User must cease all use of the GA Services. Termination of this Agreement shall not limit any of GA’s rights or remedies at law or in equity. c. In addition to clause 10, it is prohibited to initiate, permit, authorise or otherwise facilitate any extraction or obtaining of data, either directly or indirectly, from the GA Services through or by a third party or third-party software, unless the third party has been expressly authorised by GA to extract or obtain data from the GA Services. d. If any Authorised User or Registered User breaches clause 3c, then GA may suspend any access to the GA Services and may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect. 4. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS a. The Authorised User acknowledges and agrees that GA and/or its licensors own and retain all right, title, and interest in and to the GA Services and any intellectual property contained in them, including without limitation, any and all technology, content, code, user interfaces, tokens, trademarks and other items posted thereon or used in connection or associated with the GA Services. b. Without limiting the generality of clause 4a, GA owns or is the licensee of any copyright that subsists in the GA Services, including but not limited to any object code, source code, User Access Token (defined below) and Product Token (defined below) and any use of this copyright must be strictly in accordance with this Agreement. c. Without limiting the generality of clause 4a, GA deems the “User Access Token” (an access token for the API underlying the GA Services that is specific to the Authorised User or Registered User) as GA’s confidential information and any unauthorised disclosure of the User Access Token will breach this confidentiality. Without limitation, the Authorised User must not disclose, or facilitate or permit the disclosure of, the User Access Token to any third party (other than the relevant Authorised User or Registered User) including, without limitation, third-party mobile apps. d. Without limiting the generality of clause 4a, GA asserts ownership over the “Product Token” (a unique machine generated value which is required to make calls on the underlying API). Unless necessary to validly access or use the GA Services expressly in accordance with this Agreement, GA prohibits any person from accessing, using, copying, modifying or otherwise interacting with the Product Token. e. Without limiting the generality of clause 4a, the Authorised User is licensed to use GA's client-side code that runs in an internet browser or in a Golf Australia Mobile App (“Client-side Code”) for the sole purpose of the Authorised User accessing the GA Services strictly as permitted under these terms. GA prohibits any person from accessing, executing, copying, modifying, decompiling, sniffing, tracing, profiling or otherwise using the Client-side Code for any other purpose. f. Except as expressly granted in this Agreement, no license or right under any intellectual property rights in the GA Services are granted or implied by this Agreement. Specifically, the Authorised User shall not (a) modify, port, translate, localise or create derivative works of the GA Services or the intellectual property contained therein; (b) decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or attempt to reconstruct, identify or discover any source code, underlying ideas, underlying user interface techniques or algorithms of the GA Services or intellectual property contained therein by any means whatsoever, or disclose any of the foregoing; or (c) sell, lease, license, sublicense, copy (except as provided in Section 1(b) with respect to the GA Mobile Apps), market, distribute or offer as a service the GA Services or the intellectual property contained therein. Authorised User shall not remove, obscure or alter any copyright or trademark notices or any trademarks contained in the GA Services. g. The trademarks, logos, service marks and trade names that may be displayed on or within the GA Services are registered and unregistered trademarks of GA and other entities or persons (collectively, the “Trademarks”), and may not be used by Authorised User unless authorised in writing by the Trademark owner. Nothing contained in the GA Services should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademark displayed on or within the GA Services without GA’s written permission or that of the third-party rights holder. 5. SUBMITTED MATERIALS Unless specifically requested, GA does not solicit, nor does GA wish to receive, any confidential, secret or proprietary information or other material from Authorised User through the GA Services, by e-mail or in any other way. Any information, proposals, requests, creative works, pictures, photographs, documents, letters, demos, ideas, suggestions, concepts, methods, systems, designs, drawings, renderings, plans, techniques or other materials (collectively “Submitted Materials”) submitted, posted, uploaded or sent or transmitted on or through the GA Services in any manner will be deemed not to be confidential or secret, and may be used by GA in any manner consistent with this Agreement. By submitting, uploading, posting or sending Submitted Materials through, to or on the GA Services, Authorised User: (A) represents and warrants that either (i) Authorised User’s Submitted Materials are original to Authorised User and that no other party has any rights thereto or (ii) that Authorised User has the necessary licenses, rights, consents and permissions to use such Submitted Materials and use them in the GA Services for the use of GA and its applicable service providers in accordance with this Agreement, and that any “moral rights” in the Submitted Materials have been waived; and (B) Authorised User grants to GA and its service providers, a royalty-free, unrestricted, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully transferable, assignable and sublicensable right and license to use, copy, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, display, make, sell and export such material (in whole or part) and/or to incorporate it (in whole or in part) in other works, products or services in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed. GA cannot be responsible for maintaining any Submitted Material that Authorised User provides to GA on or through GA Services, and GA may delete or destroy any such Submitted Material at any time. Nothing in this clause 5 affects GA’s confidential information (including the User Access Token) which may be provided to an Authorised User as part of the GA Services from time to time. 6. PRIVACY POLICY To the extent Authorised User provides any personally identifiable information through the GA Services, GA treats such information in accordance with its General Privacy Policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if You are under the age of 18, You acknowledge and understand that You will not provide any personal information through the GA Services without the express permission of Your parent or legal guardian (when this parent or legal guardian is legally permitted to authorise such data provision). If GA learns we have collected Personal Information from a person under the age of 18 without such permission, we will delete this information. 7.

8. PUBLIC FORUMS The GA Services may include certain features that allow Authorised Users to interact and communicate with each other and/or with the general public (“Forums”). All terms and conditions in this Agreement (as well as any other applicable, supplementary terms and conditions posted or otherwise made available in connection with particular features or services on the GA Services), are applicable to Authorised User’s use of the Forums. It is important to remember that content submitted to a Forum may be recorded and stored in multiple places, both on databases that service the GA Services and elsewhere on the Internet, and Authorised User may have no control over who will access or view them eventually. Therefore, Authorised User should be careful and selective about the information that Authorised User chooses to disclose in such Forums and on the GA Services in general about Authorised User and others, and in particular, Authorised User should not disclose any sensitive, personally identifiable, proprietary or confidential information in Authorised User’s submissions to the Forums. 9. RIGHT TO MONITOR AND EDITORIAL CONTROL GA reserves the right (but does not have nor assume any obligation) to monitor and/or review all information and materials posted or otherwise submitted to the GA Services (including, without limitation, the Forums). GA is not responsible for any such materials. GA reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or government request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that in GA’s sole discretion, are objectionable to, or in violation of, GA’s policies or applicable law. GA may also impose limits on certain features or restrict Authorised User’s access to part or all of the GA Services, without notice or penalty, if GA believes Authorised User is in breach of this Agreement or applicable law, or for any other reason without notice or liability. 10. THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND PRODUCTS a. Links and Integrated Applications. Authorised User may be able to link from the GA Services to third-party web sites and/or third-party web sites may link to the GA Services (in each case, such third-party web site is referred to as a “Linked Site”). The GA Services may also be integrated with third party applications to provide Authorised User with additional features and an enhanced experience (“Integrated Applications”). Authorised User acknowledges and agrees that GA has no responsibility for any information, content, advertising, products, services or other materials on any Linked Sites or Integrated Applications, and that Integrated Applications and links to Linked Sites do not necessarily constitute an endorsement, approval or sponsorship thereof by GA. If Authorised User chooses to rely on any Linked Site or Integrated GA Services, Authorised User is doing so at Authorised User’s own risk and Authorised User assumes all responsibilities and consequences resulting from such choice. Linked Sites and Integrated Applications may be subject to separate end user license agreements, terms or service or terms of use. Without prior written permission of GA, you are prohibited from accessing the GA Services indirectly through any Integrated Applications. b. Linking to the GA Services. You agree that, without the prior express permission of GA: (a) you are not permitted to link directly to any image hosted on the GA Services, such as using an “in-line” linking method to cause the image hosted by us to be displayed on another web site; and (b) you may not link from any other web site to a GA Website in any manner such that a GA Website, or any page of a GA Website, is “framed”, embedded, surrounded or obfuscated by any third-party content, materials or branding. The posting or creation of a link to any GA Website signifies that you have read the restrictions described herein and agree to abide by their terms. GA may, in its sole discretion, insist that any link to a GA Website be discontinued, and GA may revoke your right to link to a GA Website from any other web site at any time upon written notice to you. 11. ORDERS FOR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES We may make certain products and services available for purchase or download to users of the GA Services. You may only order products or services if, and you hereby represent and warrant that, you are domiciled in Australia, unless you have otherwise gained authorisation from us, and you are at least 18 years old (or the age of majority in your jurisdiction) or you have express permission from Your parent or legal guardian to do so (when this parent or legal guardian is legally permitted to authorise such order). You agree to pay in full the prices for any purchases you make either by credit/debit card concurrent with your online order or by other payment means acceptable to GA. You agree to pay all applicable taxes. If payment is not received by us from your credit or debit card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by us. Certain products and services that you may be able to purchase or download on or through the GA Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions presented to you at the time of such purchase or download. 12. INDEMNIFICATION Authorised User agrees to defend, indemnify and hold GA, and its directors, officers, employees, agents, service providers and licensors harmless from any and all claims, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal costs, arising in any way from (i) Authorised User’s use of the GA Services, (ii) Authorised User’s Submitted Materials, in whole or in part, or (iii) Authorised User’s breach or violation of the law or this Agreement. GA reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by Authorised User, and in such case, Authorised User agrees to cooperate with any such defence. 13. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE GA SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL SERVICES, FORUMS, CONTENT, FUNCTIONS, DOWNLOADS AND MATERIALS CONTAINED IN THEM, IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY FOR INFORMATION, DATA, DATA PROCESSING SERVICES, UPTIME OR UNINTERRUPTED ACCESS, ANY WARRANTIES CONCERNING THE AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY, USEFULNESS, CORRECTNESS, PRECISION, THOROUGHNESS, COMPLETENESS OR CONTENT OF INFORMATION, AND ANY WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND GA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, GA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE GA SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL SERVICES, FORUMS, CONTENT, FUNCTIONS, DOWNLOADS AND MATERIALS CONTAINED IN THEM, WILL BE TIMELY, SECURE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED IN A TIMELY MANNER OR AT ALL. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, GA MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE GA SERVICES, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, WILL MEET AUTHORISED USER REQUIREMENTS. NO ADVICE, RESULTS OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY AUTHORISED USER FROM GA, SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE IN THIS AGREEMENT. GA ALSO ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY, AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR, ANY DAMAGES TO, OR VIRUSES THAT MAY INFECT, AUTHORISED USER’S COMPUTER OR MOBILE EQUIPMENT OR ANY OTHER PROPERTY ON ACCOUNT OF AUTHORISED USER’S ACCESS TO, USE OF, OR BROWSING IN THE GA SERVICES OR AUTHORISED USER’S DOWNLOADING OF THE GA MOBILE APP OR THE AUTHORISED USER’S DOWNLOADING OR UPLOADING OF ANY MATERIALS, DATA, TEXT, IMAGES, VIDEO, OR AUDIO FROM THE GA SERVICES. IF AUTHORISED USER IS DISSATISFIED WITH THE GA SERVICES, AUTHORISED USER SHOULD DISCONTINUE USE. GA DOES NOT NECESSARILY ENDORSE, SUPPORT, SANCTION, ENCOURAGE OR AGREE WITH ANY SITE CONTENT OR ANY SUBMITTED MATERIALS, OR ANY OPINION, RECOMMENDATION, CONTENT, LINK, DATA OR ADVICE EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED THEREIN, AND GA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY AND ALL LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH SUBMITTED MATERIALS AND ANY OTHER CONTENT, MATERIALS OR INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE GA SERVICES CREATED OR PROVIDED BY AUTHORISED USERS OR OTHER THIRD PARTIES. 14. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE, SHALL GA OR ANY OF ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, LICENSORS, OR SERVICE PROVIDERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “PROTECTED ENTITIES”) BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING FROM, OR DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY RELATED TO, THE USE OF, OR THE INABILITY TO USE, GA SERVICES OR CONTENT, MATERIALS AND FUNCTIONS OF OR RELATED THERETO, AUTHORISED USER’S PROVISION OF INFORMATION OR CONTENT VIA THE GA SERVICES, LOST BUSINESS OR LOST SALES, EVEN IF SUCH PROTECTED ENTITY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE PROTECTED ENTITIES TO AUTHORISED USER FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT OR AUTHORISED USER’S USE OF THE GA SERVICES EXCEED, IN THE AGGREGATE, THE GREATER OF (A) THE AMOUNT(S), IF ANY, PAID BY YOU TO GA FOR YOUR USE OF ANY GA WEBSITE, OR (B) TEN DOLLARS ($10). AUTHORISED USER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT (I) THE MUTUAL AGREEMENTS MADE IN THIS SECTION REFLECT A REASONABLE ALLOCATION OF RISK, AND (II) THEY WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY. 15. JURISDICTIONAL ISSUES GA does not represent that the GA Services or any contents contained in them are appropriate or available for use in any location outside of Australia. Authorised Users who choose to access the GA Services from locations outside of Australia do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. To the extent local laws require additional terms, this Agreement may be subject to separate jurisdictional terms, if any and as applicable. 16. CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT GA has the right to change or modify this Agreement, or to impose new conditions on Authorised User’s use of the GA Services, at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice of them, which may be given by any means including, but not limited to, posting within the GA Services, by electronic mail, by messaging, or by any other means from which Authorised User may obtain such notice. Any use of the GA Services by Authorised User subsequent to such notice shall be deemed to constitute Authorised User’s acceptance of such changes, modifications, additions, or deletions. 17. NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT GA respects the intellectual property rights of others and requires that the people who use the products and services of GA do the same. If any person or entity believes that content in the GA Services has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please forward the following information to GA – Level 2, 111 Coventry Street, South Melbourne, Victoria, 3205 or by email to

  • Authorised User’s address, telephone number, and email address;

  • A description of the copyrighted work that Authorised User claims has been infringed;

  • A description of where the alleged infringing material is located;

  • A statement by Authorised User that Authorised User has a good faith belief that the disputed use is not Authorised by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;

  • An electronic or physical signature of the person Authorised to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; and

  • A statement by Authorised User, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in Authorised User’s Notice is accurate and that Authorised User is the copyright owner or Authorised to act on the copyright owner's behalf.

GA will respond to notices of claimed copyright infringement in accordance with the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth). 18. MISCELLANEOUS This Agreement and the relationship between Authorised User and GA shall be governed by the laws of Australia and the State of Victoria. Authorised User agrees that any cause of action that may arise under this Agreement shall be commenced and be heard in the appropriate court in the State of Victoria. Authorised User agrees to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of Victoria. GA’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect.
