_____________________________

  1. Acceptance of Terms of Use

By accessing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by, and to have irrevocably agreed to, these Terms of Use. If you do not agree, please do not use our Services.
Some areas of our Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions, which you should read carefully before making any use of those areas. These additional terms will be posted in connection with the applicable Services and will be in addition to these Terms of Use. For additional terms and conditions applicable to the use of certain GOLFPASS subscription benefits, click here. Such additional terms will not change or replace these Terms of Use unless otherwise expressly stated. Where any direct conflict exists between these Terms of Use, or any additional terms, and the applicable Privacy Policy, the terms of the Privacy Policy shall take precedence. However, provisions unique to these Terms of Use (e.g., arbitration) will remain in effect as provided here. You must have (and, by using our Services, you warrant that you have) the legal capacity to enter into the agreement set out in these Terms of Use (i.e., that you are of sufficient age and mental capacity and are otherwise entitled to be legally bound in contract).

EACH TIME YOU ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE OUR SERVICES YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW AGREEMENT WITH US ON THE THEN-APPLICABLE TERMS OF USE AND YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY NOTIFY YOU OF OTHER TERMS BY POSTING THEM ON THIS SITE OR VIA OUR APPLICABLE SERVICES (OR IN ANY OTHER REASONABLE MANNER OF NOTICE WHICH WE ELECT), AND THAT YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES AFTER SUCH NOTICE CONSTITUTES YOUR GOING FORWARD AGREEMENT TO THE OTHER TERMS FOR YOUR NEW USE AND TRANSACTIONS. Therefore, you should review the posted Terms of Use and any applicable additional terms each time you use our Services or at the very least prior to each transaction or submission. The additional terms will be effective as to new use and transactions as of the time that we post them, or such later date as may be specified in them or in other notice to you. However, the Terms of Use (and any applicable additional terms) that applied when you previously used our Services will continue to apply to such prior use (i.e., changes and additions are prospective only) except as mutually agreed. In the event any notice to you of any new, revised or additional terms and conditions is determined by a tribunal to be insufficient, the prior agreement shall continue until sufficient notice to establish a new agreement occurs. You can reject any new, revised or additional Terms of Use by discontinuing use of our Services

2. Permitted Uses
Non-commercial Use. Your use of our Services is limited solely to your personal and non-commercial use.

Commercial Establishments. If you intend to gain any commercial benefit from the ability to access or use the Services, you are prohibited from using the Services except in certain instances where GOLF Channel explicitly offers a Fee-Based Product(s) for commercial establishments (see more on this below).

You intend to gain commercial benefit from the ability to access or use the Services as reasonably determined by us, including, but not limited to, if:

You are a commercial establishment, such as a gym, restaurant pub, club or bar.

You charge, or allow others to charge, a direct or indirect admission fee for entry to the establishment.

You exploit, or allow others to exploit, sponsorships or commercial rights of association in connection with your establishment.

You stage additional commercial activities in relation to the ability to access or use the Services that are separate from those activities that your establishment is reasonably expected to operate in its ordinary course of business.

GOLF Channel may offer Fee-Based Product(s) for commercial establishments via third parties or via our apps or sites. You agree that if you intend to gain any commercial benefit from the ability to access or use the Services, you are limited to subscribing to those Fee-Based Products offered to commercial establishments. Otherwise, your subscription to our Fee-Based Products (not explicitly offered to commercial establishments) is only valid for your personal, non-commercial use and any other use is strictly prohibited. Note: Renewal of any current subscription to Fee-Based Product(s) not for commercial establishments is and continues to be your violation of these Terms of Use.

Applicable to Each Permitted Use. Our Services contain material that is derived in whole or in part from material supplied and owned by GOLF Channel as well as third parties (collectively, “Content”). As between GOLF Channel and you, GOLF Channel owns all right, title and interest in and to the copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, patents, and all other intellectual and proprietary rights throughout the world associated with our Services and Content. You acknowledge GOLF Channel’s valid intellectual and proprietary property rights in our Services and Content and that your use of our Services is limited to the online access, viewing, streaming and (where expressly permitted by GOLF Channel) temporary offline access of Content, all solely as authorized by GOLF Channel. Nothing in these Terms of Use shall be deemed to convey to you any right, title or interest in or to our Services or Content or to any portion thereof except for the limited rights expressly granted herein.

You may not either directly or through the use of any personal computer, browser, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or other device (each a “Device”) or other means remove, alter, bypass, avoid, interfere with, or circumvent (i) any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices marked on our Services or Content, (ii) any digital rights management mechanism or other content protection or access control measure associated with our Services or Content, or (iii) any advertisement on our Services and/or within Content. The foregoing shall apply to you regardless of the method in which GOLF Channel makes Content available to you, including via a widget, embedded player or any other technology that may allow you to embed or stream Content on or to another site.

You may use your account to access a maximum of one (1) stream of Content at any time across all of your Devices. Except as set forth herein, simultaneous access to multiple streams of Content by a single account holder is strictly prohibited. Note to Commercial Establishments: If you are permitted to subscribe to a Fee-Based Product for commercial establishments, you are allowed to purchase one (1) subscription for each Device within your establishment for which you intend to access, view, and stream the Services.

You may not either directly or through the use of any Device or other means copy, download, stream, reproduce, duplicate, archive, distribute, upload, publish, modify, translate, broadcast, perform, display, sell, transmit or retransmit our Services or Content unless expressly permitted by GOLF Channel in advance in writing. You may not incorporate Content into, or stream or retransmit the Content via, any hardware or software application or make our Services or any Content available via frames or in-line links, and you may not otherwise surround or obfuscate the Content or Services with any third party content, materials or branding. You may not use any software robot, spider, crawler, or other data gathering or extraction tool, whether automated or manual, to access, acquire, copy, monitor, scrape or aggregate Content or any portion of our Services. (See Section 21 below for terms applicable to use of links to our Services.) You may not knowingly or intentionally take any action that may impose an unreasonable burden or load on our Services or its servers and infrastructures. You may not build a business on, in whole or in part, resell, redistribute or recirculate or make any other commercial use of, or create derivative works or materials utilizing, any portion of our Services or Content, whether or not for profit (notwithstanding that you may access, view, and stream the Services via a permitted Fee-Based Product for commercial establishments) .

You are prohibited from disabling, modifying, interfering with or otherwise circumventing any technology to allow users to view Content without: (i) displaying visibly both Content and all surrounding elements (including the graphical user interface, any advertising, copyright notices, and trademarks); and (ii) having full access to all functionality permitting viewing of Content, including, without limitation, all video quality and display functionality and all interactive, elective or click-through advertising functionality.

You may not do, nor authorize to be done, anything which, in our opinion, may give rise to the belief that you are in any way officially associated with GOLF Channel, the Content, or the Services (for example, as a sponsor, supplier or similar).

3. Access to and Availability of Services
Our Services are intended for use by users who are over the age of 13 and reside in the United States, its territories, possessions and protectorates (“U.S.”) or those outside of the U.S. that consent to use the online services in accordance with U.S. laws and the terms of these Terms of Use.

You agree to immediately notify GOLF Channel of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. You understand and agree that our Services may include a social network and your activities (e.g., video viewing, interactions with members and/or advertisers) may be shared with others both on and off our Services. If you don’t want your activities on such social network to be shared, your only option is to deactivate the related social network account.

5. Digital Items, Credits, Fee-Based Products and Subscription Agreement.
Your use of our Fee-Based Products (as defined in our Subscription Agreement) is subject to the terms and conditions of our Subscription Agreement, which terms and conditions are incorporated herein.

At other times, we may offer you digital items or credits for non-Fee Based Products. Purchases of digital items (including credits, points, and/or virtual currency or any virtual items made available on the online services) are nonrefundable, have no monetary value (i.e., are not a cash account or equivalent), and are purchases of only a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable right to use, even if such came with a durational term.

We do not recognize the transfer of digital items or credits (including for “real” money or any other consideration or items of value whether inside or outside of the online services). Accordingly, you may not purchase, sell, barter, or trade any digital items or credits, or offer to purchase, sell, or trade any digital items or credits. Any such attempted transfer will be null and void.

Accordingly, you have no property, proprietary, intellectual property, ownership, or monetary interest in your digital items or credits, which remain our Content. We may also immediately suspended or terminate the rights we grant you to digital items or credits for any or no reason, in our sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability. We may modify digital items or credits at our sole discretion, and such modifications may make the digital items or credits more or less common, valuable, effective, or functional.

If we suspend or terminate any digital items or credits, then you will forfeit the suspended or terminated items, except as may be set forth in any additional terms (such as any refund policies that may apply to Fee-Based Product(s)). Likewise, except as may be set forth in any additional terms or as required by applicable law, we are not responsible for repairing or replacing the same, or providing you any credit or refund or any other sum, in the event of our modification of any digital items or credits, or for loss or damage due to error, or any other reason.

6. You Agree to Our Privacy Policy and Third Party Ads
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide a notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used on our Services. Click here to view the notice, which forms part of these Terms of Use.

Any personal details and data acquired by GOLF Channel from your accessing or use of our Services will be collected and/or used in accordance with our Privacy Policy, including targeted advertising and tracking information we collect automatically. To learn more about how you can opt-out of targeted advertising, please review our Cookies and Tracking Technologies Policy.

7. Wireless and Location-Based Features; Social Media Plug-ins
Wireless Features. Our Services may offer certain features and services that are available to you via your wireless Device. These features and services may include the ability to access our Services’ features and upload content to our Services, receive messages from our Services, and download applications to your wireless Device (collectively, “Wireless Features”). Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Wireless Features and certain Wireless Features may be incompatible with your carrier or wireless Device. In addition, your carrier may charge you for standard messaging, data, and other fees to participate in Wireless Features. Fees and charges may appear on your wireless bill or be deducted from your pre-paid balance. We have no responsibility or liability for any fees or charges you incur when using Wireless Features. You should check with your carrier to find out whether any fees or charges will apply, what plans are available and how much they cost. You should also contact your carrier with any other questions regarding these issues.

Terms of Wireless Features. If you register for any Wireless Features then you agree that, in connection with those Wireless Features, we may send communications to your wireless Device regarding us or other parties. Further, we may collect information related to your use of the Wireless Features in accordance with our Privacy Policy. If you have registered via our Services for Wireless Features, then you agree to notify GOLF Channel of any changes to your wireless contact information (including phone number) and update your accounts on our Services to reflect any changes.

Location-Based Features. For Services on mobile Devices (“Mobile Apps”) when you use one of our location-enabled Services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. Some of the Mobile Apps or Services require your location information for the feature to work. If you have enabled GPS, geo-location or other location-based features on a Device, you acknowledge that your Device location will be tracked and may be shared with others consistent with the Privacy Policy.

In addition, where any Mobile App collects precise information about the location of your Devices, it will be used to provide requested location services, and, depending on the particular Mobile App, it may be used, amongst other uses, to allow tagging or to check-in.

Some Mobile App(s) or feature(s) allow for you to disable location-based features or manage preferences related to them. However, you can terminate Device location tracking by us by uninstalling any Mobile App(s) or feature(s). The location-based services offered in connection with our Mobile App(s) or feature(s) are for individual use only and should not be used or relied on as an emergency locator system, used while driving or operating vehicles, or used in connection with any hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, or any other situation in which the failure or inaccuracy of use of the location-based services could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or property damage. The location-based services are not suited or intended for family finding purposes, fleet tracking, or any other type of business or enterprise use.

Please see our Privacy Policy to find out more about how to opt out of providing location information or contact privacy@nbcuni.com.

Social Media Plug-Ins. Social media plug-ins of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus (among others) may be integrated on our Services. Where our Services contain a plug-in to a social network, these are clearly marked (e.g. with a Facebook button). If you choose to click on one of these buttons or links, your browser connects directly to the servers of the relevant social network. The social network directly transmits the content of the plugin to your browser. If you are registered on the relevant social network and logged into your respective account the social network receives the information that the web page was used by you. If you interact with a social network plug-in (e.g., you press the Facebook “Like” feature, the Twitter “Tweet this” feature, Google Plus “1+” button, or equivalent) or drop a comment on the appropriate web page, the corresponding information is directly transmitted to the relevant social network from your browser. If you are not registered with the social network or you are logged out before you visit our Services, there is the possibility that at least your IP address will be submitted to and stored by the social network. If you interact with us through a social media platform, plug-in, etc., then you may be enabling us to have ongoing access to certain information from your social network profile (such as your name, social networking id page, e-mail address, photo, gender, location, the people/sites you follow, etc.).

If you don’t want a social network to collect the information about you described above, or to share it with us and other third parties, please review the privacy policy of the relevant social network and/or log out of the relevant social network before you visit our Services. As with other sites, you may be able to delete any existing cookies placed on your computer by the social network via your browser. See Section 1 of our Privacy Policy to find out more about how our Services contain plug-ins to social media networks.

Unless otherwise specified, the materials on our Services are presented solely to provide information regarding and to promote GOLF Channel’s services and other products available in the U.S. Our Services are controlled and operated by GOLF Channel from its offices within the State of New York. GOLF Channel makes no representation that materials on our Services are appropriate or available for use outside the U.S. Those who choose to access our Services from outside the U.S. do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

25. Binding Arbitration of All Disputes; No Class Relief
This Section 25 is deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and GOLF Channel agree that we intend that this Section 25 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 25 can only be amended by mutual agreement. For non-U.S. residents, if binding arbitration is adjudged by a tribunal to be unenforceable, the provisions of Section 26 below shall apply to all relevant disputes between you and us.

We believe that arbitration is a faster, more convenient and less expensive way to resolve any disputes or disagreements that you may have with us. Therefore, pursuant to these Terms of Use, if you have any dispute or disagreement with us regarding (i) your use of or interaction with any of Services (including this Site), (ii) any purchases or other transactions or relationships with GOLF Channel made through our Services under the Subscription Agreement or otherwise, or (iii) any data or information you may provide to GOLF Channel or that GOLF Channel may gather in connection with such use, interaction or transaction conducted through our Services (collectively, “GOLF Channel Transactions or Relationships”), you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the Site or our other Services, or engaging in any other GOLF Channel Transactions or Relationships with us, you agree to binding arbitration as provided below.

We will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes, or disagreements that you may have with us. By using our Services, you agree that, if those efforts fail, any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against GOLF Channel, and any claim that GOLF Channel may have against you, arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, or any GOLF Channel Transactions or Relationships, shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration (“Arbitration”) administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”) and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the “Applicable Rules”). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is no longer in existence, the Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (the “AAA”) instead, and conducted in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at that time (which shall be the “Applicable Rules” in such circumstances). If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness or successor or analogous policies in effect which would be applicable to the matter in dispute (“Minimum Standards”), GOLF Channel agrees to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this Section 25, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the application of subpart (e) or (i) below. Furthermore, this Section 25 shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. You further agree that:

  1. Single Arbitrator. The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and GOLF Channel (the “Arbitrator”);
  2. Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement. The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Use and/or the arbitration provisions in this Section 25, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Use is void or voidable;
  3. Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and GOLF Channel; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
  4. Governing Law. The Arbitrator shall (i) apply internal laws of the State of New York consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with New York or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief;
  5. No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and/or GOLF Channel’s individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated;
  6. Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets;
  7. Arbitration Costs. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, GOLF Channel will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith;
  8. Reasonable Attorney’s Fees. In the event you recover an Award greater than GOLF Channel’s last written settlement offer, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award GOLF Channel’s reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees associated with the Arbitration, but GOLF Channel shall in all events bear its own attorneys’ fees; and
  9. Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart E above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart E is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor GOLF Channel shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.

Modification of Arbitration Clause with Notice. GOLF Channel may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after GOLF Channel has given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from GOLF Channel Transactions and Relationships occurring after the effective date of such notification.

Small Claims Matters are Excluded; No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim you have against GOLF Channel in your local small claims court within the U.S. if your claim is within such court’s jurisdictional limit; provided, that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.

26. Dispute Resolution for Non-U.S. Residents Only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Arbitration is Prohibited by Law
This Section 26 applies to non-U.S. residents only, where applicable law prohibits arbitration of disputes in accordance with Section 26 above.

Section 26 disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to our Services, Content, these Terms of Use, whether heretofore or hereafter arising, or to any of GOLF Channel’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (collectively, a “Section 26 Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Section 26 Dispute along with a proposed resolution. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us, but if no such information exists or if such information is not current then we have no obligation under this Section 26(A). Your notice to us must be sent to:

By mail:
Gillian M. Lusins
NBC Universal Law Department
620 Fifth Avenue, Fifth Floor, Room 574
New York, New York 10112
By e-mail: dmca.agent@nbcuni.com

For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, GOLF Channel and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Section 26 Dispute, though nothing will require either you or GOLF Channel to resolve the Section 26 Dispute on terms with respect to which you and GOLF Channel, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.

  1. Jurisdiction. The parties agree that the state or federal courts in the State of New York shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Section 26 Dispute.
  2. Governing Law. To the maximum extent permitted by the mandatory laws in your country of residence, these Terms of Use and any Section 26 Dispute arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes) will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the U.S. and the State of New York without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
  3. Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A SECTION 26 DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 26(A) ABOVE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE SECTION 26 DISPUTE ARISES, OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.

2. Charges and Fees for Fee-Based Products

Subscription Period. Your subscription to our Fee-Based Products will provide you access to all of the content and benefits relating to the level of subscription you select (i.e. GOLFPASS or GOLFPASS+) for the period provided during sign-up ("Subscription Period"). For more detail about the content and benefits available to GOLFPASS and GOLFPASS+ subscribers during your Subscription Period please review our FAQs - https://www.golfpass.com/faq.

Payment and Fees. You will be billed upfront for the cost of the full Subscription Period, in addition to any applicable taxes, transaction fees and other charges and fees incurred in order to access the Service. You must have Internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, "Payment Method") for payment. You may edit your Payment Method information in your Account page. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Additionally, your Payment Method may be automatically updated from time to time using information provided by your Payment Method issuer (i.e. credit card number and/or expiration date). This automatic updater service is provided by your Payment Method provider directly, not Golf, and may be governed by your cardholder agreement. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.

Billing Information. For purposes of your use of the Service, including identification and billing, you agree to provide the trusted third parties (listed on the Service at the time of payment) that we have retained to perform billing and subscription-related functions with true, accurate and complete information as required by the subscription or sign up process to the Service ("Subscription Data"), including your legal name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and applicable billing information (e.g., credit card number and expiration date), for the purpose of verifying the information you provide and billing your credit card or otherwise charging your account. You agree to maintain and promptly update the Subscription Data and any other information you provide to us to keep it accurate. Without limiting any other provision of this Subscription Agreement, if you provide material information that is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your user account or subscription and refuse any and all current or future use by you of the Service. You must check your Account page to determine whether your Subscription Data is current and accurate, and, if not, to correct or update your Subscription Data, including your billing information.

If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

Price Increases. We reserve the right to increase charges and fees, or to institute new charges or fees at any time, upon reasonable advance notice as contemplated in this Subscription Agreement and communicated to you through a posting on the Service or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time (including e-mail or conventional mail). Such price increases will be applied on a prospective basis and you will be notified about the increase. You have the right to terminate this Subscription Agreement within 30 days of such notice. After the expiration of this notice period, the changes will become effective.

Automatic Renewal. By starting your subscription and providing or designating a payment method, you authorize us to charge your payment method at the start of your billing period and, where applicable, at the start of each renewal period, unless you terminate or cancel your subscription in accordance with Section 4 before the relevant renewal period begins.

Each time you are charged for your renewal, the renewal charge will be the same as the prior period's charge, unless (a) you were eligible for a discounted rate but are no longer eligible for that discounted rate, in which case your renewal charge will be in an amount equal to the then-current full term regular price for the product you subscribed to; or (b) we notify you in accordance with this Subscription Agreement in advance at the time of sign up or prior to the beginning of the renewal period that your renewal price will be changing.

We will notify you before the end of your subscription period that your subscription is expiring and we will provide you with the terms and conditions that will apply. If you do not cancel your subscription before the expiration of your then current subscription period, your subscription will be automatically renewed at the renewal price for the renewal period you were notified of.

In the event we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right to terminate your access to the Service.

Automatic Renewal is not available for Fee-Based Products for commercial establishments. Note: Renewal of any current subscription to Fee-Based Product(s) not for commercial establishments is, and continues to be, your violation of this Subscription Agreement.

Free Trials. Your subscription may start with a free trial. GOLF Channel reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility. If you purchased a subscription with a free trial period, you authorize us to charge your credit card or other account when the free trial period ends, unless you cancel your subscription before the free trial period ends. To find end date of your free trial period or to cancel, visit your Account page on the Service.

Separate Fees. In addition to the fees and charges set forth above, you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with connecting to our Fee-Based Products, including, without limitation, all telephone access lines (including long-distance charges, when applicable), content distributor fees, internet service provider fees, mobile fees, telephone and computer equipment, sales taxes and any other fees and charges necessary to access our Fee-Based Products. Notwithstanding anything in this Subscription Agreement to the contrary, purchases made within a GOLF Channel mobile application downloaded from the Apple® iTunes store are not refundable and are subject to Apple’s iTunes Terms of Use.

Accuracy of Your Subscription Data. You agree not to register or subscribe for more than one account, create an account on behalf of someone else, or create a false or misleading identity on any of the Fee-Based Products.

If your registration or subscription is revoked for any reason, you agree not to register or subscribe to our Fee-Based Products using another user name or through any other means. If we have reason to suspect, in our sole discretion, that your account has previously been terminated, we reserve the right to terminate any new account(s) you have registered without any notice to you, or to exercise any other remedies available to us under this Subscription Agreement or by law.

You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and user account information. You must notify us immediately in the event of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your user account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your or anyone else’s password or credit card information. In the event of a breach of security by you, you will remain liable for any unauthorized use of your subscription until you update your Subscription Data. If your credit card expires, is cancelled, is lost or is subject to use without your authorization, access the Account Settings feature of our Services to update your Subscription Data. You are entirely responsible for any and all activities which occur under your user account.

However, the cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current Subscription Period and you will continue to have access to your Subscription until that date (unless otherwise noted).
