GGM WILL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO THE SUBSCRIBER OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING FROM, CONNECTED WITH, OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THE WEBSITE BY THE SUBSCRIBER OR ANY OTHER PERSON.
Without limiting the generality of the above, GGM makes no representation, warranty, condition or guarantee that:
The Internet is not a secure medium. It may be subject to interruption and disruption, and inadvertent or deliberate breaches of security and privacy. The operation of the Services may be affected by numerous factors beyond GGM’s control, and may not be continuous or interrupted, secure or private.

Without limiting the generality of the above and in spite of any other provision of this agreement, under no circumstances will GGM ever be liable to the Subscriber or any other person for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive or exemplary loss or damage arising from, connected with, or relating to the Services, this Agreement, the subject matter of this Agreement, the termination of this Agreement or otherwise.

Without limiting the generality of the above, GGM will not be liable to the Subscriber or any other person for: any loss or damage suffered by the Subscriber or any other person as a result of any failure or refusal by GGM to give effect to, or for any failure or delay by GGM in receiving, accessing, processing or accepting, any communication sent to GGM by means of the Services or otherwise, or any loss or damage suffered as a result of the operational failure, malfunction, interruption, change, amendment or withdrawal of the Website or any part of it.

The Subscriber will assist and co-operate as fully as reasonably required by GGM in the defense of any such claim or demand.
11. PRICE AND PAYMENT
The Subscriber shall pay GGM annual fees as indicated at www.golfgroupmanager.com for the Basic Website and modules as selected. GGM reserves the right to increase prices upon the expiration of the Subscriber’s contracted term. Price increases shall be posted on the Golf Group Manager website 30 days prior to taking effect. GGM agrees to submit written notice to the primary email on record for the Subscriber at least 30 days prior to taking effect.
Method of Payment
GGM accepts payments by credit card only. The Subscriber can authorize GGM to charge the membership fees annually if automatic renewal is selected. If automatic renewal is chosen, payment will be processed from the credit card information stored with a non-affiliated Third party credit card processor. Payment transactions are carried out in a secured environment on the Golf Group Manager server. Credit card numbers are stored in an encrypted database and are only used for the purpose of completing transactions on the GGM website. The purpose of holding this information is to allow for efficient recurring payments. Subscribers can opt to remove credit card information permanently from the database but will need to ensure that new credit card information is provided prior to the renewal date to prevent website expiry and content loss. It is the responsibility of the Subscriber to guarantee that the credit card information is accurate and current. Failure to provide accurate and current credit card information may results in cancellation or suspension of Services and all costs including Merchant Bank charges and data recovery fees will be the responsibility of the Subscriber.
Credit Card Chargeback
Anytime a chargeback request is received from GGM’s Merchant Bank, GGM reserves the right to immediately suspend a Subscriber’s account until the chargeback request has been formally resolved between GGM and the Merchant Service Authority. This process may take more than a week. If the Subscriber wants to dispute a billing error, GGM encourages the Subscriber to first contact GGM to resolve any discrepancies to avoid having the account suspended. GGM reserves the right to refuse any additional services to the Subscriber while a chargeback notice is pending investigation by the Merchant Service Authority.
GGM may terminate this Agreement, the Subscriber’s account, or any Service prior to the end of any active subscription period, and there is no breach of any provision of this Agreement. Application for a partial refund of the fees paid for that subscription period can be applied for in writing within thirty (30) days after such termination.
Subscribers that wish to terminate this Agreement and the Services subscribed to, can do so by contacting GGM through the email address provided on the website. GGM reserves the right to investigate the validity of all refund applications. Refunds will not be unreasonably denied. If the balance remaining on the account is under $50, no refund will be issued.
Refunds are limited to the Basic Website and specified modules. Refunds are prorated based on the number of months remaining in the subscription. The date of termination will be the final day of the month in which the notice was received. GGM will refund the prorated amount minus monthly usage fees. Monthly usage fees and a list of modules exempt from refunds can be found on the GGM website.
13. FAILURE TO RENEW SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE EXPIRY DATE
Every effort will be made by GGM to notify Subscribers of pending expiry dates of their subscriptions. Notifications and reminders will be generated from the GGM website to the Subscriber emails on file and failure to reach these Subscribers due to changes of email addresses or golf club group/leagues contact persons will not be deemed the responsibility of GGM if renewal is not completed by the deadline date. Subscriber’s can apply to GGM to re-instate website data within 120 days from cancellation or expiry date. The fee for this service is listed on the GGM website.
