Arbitration

Except if you opt-out or for disputes relating to your or our intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents) ("Excluded Disputes"), you agree that all disputes between you and GottaGolf (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with us, including, without limitation, disputes related to these Terms of Service, your use of the Service and/or the App, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association's rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you and GottaGolf hereby expressly waive trial by jury. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local "small claims" court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor GottaGolf will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms of Service. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if GottaGolf is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then GottaGolf, or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Service.

You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor GottaGolf can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify GottaGolf in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt out:

GottaGolf, LLC. ATTN: Arbitration 2350 Peachtree Road, Cumming, GA 30041

You must include your name and residence address, the email address you use for your App account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.

If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your account.

Time Limitation on Claims

You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to the Service or Content must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.

Governing Law

These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law AND WILL SPECIFICALLY NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE. For any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of these Terms of Service, the Excluded Disputes or if you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, you agree to resolve any dispute you have with GottaGolf exclusively in a state or federal court located in Fulton County, Georgia, and to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Los Angeles County for the purpose of litigating all such disputes.

If any provision of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable during arbitration or by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Our failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. No waiver of any of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. 

Miscellaneous

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the Service and Content, superseding any prior agreements between you and us regarding the Service and Content. You will not assign the Terms or assign any rights or delegate any obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the prior written consent of GottaGolf. Any purported assignment or delegation by you without the appropriate prior written consent of GottaGolf will be null and void. GottaGolf may assign these Terms or any rights hereunder without your consent. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, the parties nevertheless agree that such portion will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions, and the remaining provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify the Terms. The failure of GottaGolf to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. Any notices or other communications provided by us under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Service. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

Territorial Restrictions

We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Service or any portion of the Service, to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any content, program, product, service or other feature that we provide.

gottaGolf Privacy Policy

You acknowledge and understand that this App is powered by GottaGolf, LLC. (“GottaGolf”). This Privacy Policy describes how and when GottaGolf ("we" or “us”) collects, uses, and discloses your information when you use the Service. Also, please note that, unless we define a term in this Privacy Policy, all capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service. So, please make sure that you have read and understand our Terms of Service. 

We receive your information through our mobile applications, websites, email notifications, and other interactions with our Service. When using our Service you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

 

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We collect the following kinds of information: 

App Account and Profile Information: When you create an App Account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you like your email address and phone number (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”). If you create an App Account using your login credentials from one of your SNS Accounts, such as Twitter or Facebook, we’ll be able to access and collect certain information like your name, username, profile photograph and email address and other PII that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to access. You may provide us with additional profile information, including a short biography, location, and profile photo. If you create your App Account by connecting through another SNS Account, we may use public information from that connected account to help complete your App profile. Some contact information may be required in order to use certain features on the Services. We may also collect certain information that is not PII because it cannot be used by itself to identify you.

Finding Friends and Connecting to Other Services: Our Service includes several features to help connect you to people you already know. For example, at your direction, we may access information from your address book or connect your App Account to your other SNS Account and access your PII and non-PII from the third party services or our Service in order to enable you to find, connect, and message friends.

 

Content, Following, and other Public Information: The App invites users to share User Content with the community, so the User Content you provide us is information that you choose to be made public. This includes not only the User Content that you post and metadata provided with such User Content (such as when it was posted, hashtags, and geotags), but also the people you follow or connect with, the Content that you like or comment on, and other public interactions on the Services. Your profile, including your name, username, photograph and any other information you provide on your profile, will also be accessed and viewed by the public in general. When you share information or User Content via the Service, you should exercise discretion and good judgment because the information and User Content may not be removed or deleted from the Service. 

Messaging Other Users: When you send or receive messages, we collect, process and store the content of those messages (including photos and videos) on our servers. The contents of those messages may also be stored on the devices of recipients. We cannot prevent others from making copies of your messages (e.g., by taking a screenshot). In addition, there may be ways to access messages while still in temporary storage on recipients' devices or, forensically, even after they are deleted. You should not use the Service to send messages if you want to be certain that the recipient cannot keep a copy. Although messages between you and other users of the App are not made publicly available on the App, we reserve the right to review such messages in the event we believe (in our sole discretion) that you violated our Terms of Service. Notwithstanding the foregoing, when you send or receive messages via our Service, we collect information about these messages, including the time, date, sender and recipient of the message. We also collect information about the number of messages sent and received between you and your friends and which friends you exchange messages with most frequently.

Location Information: In addition to profile information, you may also tell us your exact location if you choose to enable your computer or mobile device to send us location information. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Service, such as tagging Content with a location, and to improve and customize the Service, for example, with Content that has been tagged near your location.

Links: We may keep track of how you interact with links across our Service, including our email notifications and third-party services. We do this to help improve our Service, for example to provide relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics, such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: We use various technologies to collect information and improve our Service, and this may include sending cookies to you. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory, and we may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to identify that you’ve logged in to the Service and help us understand and customize how you interact with our Service, see which areas and features of our Service are popular and count visits. We may also include web beacons (also known as "tracking pixels") on our Service, which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Service, to monitor how many visitors view our Service, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an e-mail). Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. If you do not want cookies from us or other websites, you can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, some features of the Services may not function properly if you disable cookies. 

Log Information: Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, pages visited and the time spent on those pages, search terms, and other statistics. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Service, for example, when you visit our Apps, sign into our Service, view Content hosted by us, or interact with our notifications. We use Log Data to provide, measure, customize, and improve the Services.

 

Device Information: We may collect information about the computer or device you use to access our Service, including the hardware model, operating system and version, MAC address, unique device identifier, phone number, International Mobile Equipment Identity ("IMEI") and mobile carrier.

 

Third-Parties: We use a variety of third-party services to help provide our Service and to help us understand the use of our Service, such as Google Analytics. These third-parties may collect information sent by the App or mobile device and share such information with us. These third parties may use tracking technologies, including, without limitation, cookies and web beacons to collect information about your use of the Service and other Apps, including your IP address, operating system, device ID, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked and conversion information. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain Content and better understand our users’ activity on the Service. Note that this Privacy Policy does not include use of cookies by such third parties. 

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

In addition to some of the specific uses of information we describe in this Privacy Policy, we may use information that we receive from you to:

  • Help you efficiently access your information after you sign in;
  • Remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the App;
  • Remember information so you can access all apps powered by the Service with the same login credentials;
  • Provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of the Service;
  • Develop and test new products and features;
  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage and activities in connection with the Service;
  • Diagnose or fix technology problems;
  • Automatically update the App on your device;
  • Run and administer contests, special offers or other events or activities;
  • Provide and deliver the products and services you request, process transactions and send you related information;
  • Respond to your comments, questions and requests and provide customer service;
  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts and support and administrative messages;
  • Communicate with you about products, services, offers, promotions, rewards, and events offered by GottaGolf or others, and provide news and information we think will be of interest to you; 
  • Personalize and improve the Service and provide advertisements, other forms of marketing, Content or features that match your interests;
  • Detect, investigate and/or prevent fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity; and
  • Carry out any other purpose for which the information was collected.

GottaGolf is based in the United States and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law. By accessing or using the Service or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the storage, processing and transfer of information in and to the U.S. and other countries. You acknowledge that we may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.

HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

We will not share your PII with third parties outside GottaGolf without your consent, except as noted in this Privacy Policy.

Parties With Whom We May Share Your Information:

We may share your User Content and your PII with businesses that are legally part of the same group of companies that GottaGolf is part of, or that become part of that group ("Affiliates"). Affiliates may use this information to help provide, understand, and improve the Service and Affiliates' own services (including, without limitation, by providing you with better and more relevant experiences). 

We may share your PII with third-party organizations that help us provide the Service to you ("Service Providers"). Our Service Providers will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary to provide the Service under reasonable confidentiality terms. 

We may share certain anonymized information with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. 

We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry research and analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes. 

We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.

Any information and User Content that you voluntarily post to the Service is made publicly available and may be shared and re-shared by others. When you share information or User Content via the Service, you should think carefully about what you are making public. Please think of your own privacy needs as you choose what to upload, share, and make public on the Service. We cannot control the privacy or security of information and Content once you make it public or share it with others. 

Any Content that you make public is searchable by other users and subject to use under our API. 

If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other users or third parties using our API have copied or saved that information.

Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions: Information that we collect from our users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. Thus, if GottaGolf sells or otherwise transfers part or the whole of their respective business or their respective assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation), your PII, Content and any other information collected through the Service may be among the items sold or transferred. You will continue to own your User Content. 

Law and Harm: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, we may preserve or disclose your information, including your PII, if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect our rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party's, including a government's, request to disclose your information. We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.

YOUR CHOICES

We offer you choices regarding the collection, use and sharing of your PII and we’ll respect the choices you make. Please note that if you decide not to provide us with the PII that we request, you may not be able to access all of the features of the Services.

Opt-Out: We may periodically send you free newsletters and e-mails that directly promote GottaGolf, the App, and/or our Service (including, without limitation, other apps powered by GottaGolf). When you receive such promotional communications from us, you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the e-mail you receive. We do need to send you certain communications regarding the Service and you will not be able to opt out of those communications – e.g., communications regarding updates to our Terms of Service or this Privacy Policy. 

MODIFYING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you are a registered user of the App, we provide you with tools and account settings to access or modify the profile information you provided to us and associated with your App Account.

You can also permanently delete your App account by contacting us at contact@gottagolf.com.

OTHER WEBSITES, APPS AND SERVICES

We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites, apps or services linked to or viewed from our Services, including the information or content contained within them. Please remember that when you access another website, app or service from the App, our Privacy Policy does not apply to those third-party websites, apps or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website, app or service, including those that have a link or can otherwise be viewed on the App, are subject to that third party's own rules and policies. In addition, you agree that we are not responsible and do not have control over any third-parties that you authorize to access, share, and/or distribute your User Content. If you are using a third-party website, app or service and you allow them to access, share, and/or distribute your Content you do so at your own risk.

THE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

We take commercially reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your personal information) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, no method of digital transmission, or method of digital storage, is 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit through the Service or guarantee that information on the Service may not be inappropriately accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

OUR POLICY TOWARDS CHILDREN

Our Service is not directed to persons under 13. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.

YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California residents may request and obtain from us, once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties, if any, to which we disclosed their PII for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year and the categories of PII shared with those third parties. If you are a California resident and wish to obtain that information, please submit your request by sending us an email at contact@gottagolf.com with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line or by writing to us at GottaGolf, 2350 Peachtree Road, Cumming, Ga, 30041

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Any information that is collected via our Service is covered by the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we’ll notify you of those changes by posting them on the Service or by sending you an email or other notification. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Service to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy. By continuing to access or use the Service after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
