BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS:
1.2 You and Golf Slam agree to resolve disputes between us in individual arbitration (not in court).

1.6 In these Terms references to “Golf Slam”, “we”, “us” and “our”, are references to the Golf Slam mobile golf game.
1.8 For use of our Services, you confirm that you are at least 13 years old and that if you are between 13 years and 18 years old, your legal guardian has reviewed and agrees to these Terms and has agreed that you may access and/or use our Services.
1.9 You can access the latest version of these Terms at any time at: www.golfslam.com. We reserve the right make amendments to these Terms at any time and your continued use of our Services after the Terms have been updated shall confirm your acceptance of the updated Terms.
2.1 The specific game rules, scoring rules, rewards, controls, and guidelines for the Golf Slam game can be found within the game application itself. Such rules, scoring rules, rewards, controls, and guidelines form part of these Terms and you agree that you shall comply with them in respect of the Golf Slam game which you choose to access and/or play.
2.2 You are accountable for the internet connection and/or mobile charges that you may incur for accessing and/or using our Services. You should contact your mobile operator or internet service provider if you are unsure what these charges will be, prior to accessing and/or using our Services.
2.3 There may be times when our Services or any part of them are not available for technical, upgrading, development or maintenance related reasons, whether on a scheduled or unscheduled basis.
3.1 Account Creation
Player’s account is automatically created on the backend system of Golf Slam. The ID of the player as well as his name (subject to a change) is randomly generated by the Golf Slam’s server. This is the default account that is tied to either e-mail/Google Play Service/Game Center.
Users can choose to bind a game account to a service account – Google Play Services on Android and Game Center on iOS devices. When binding happens, any progress made in the game is saved on the service account. If a player attempts to bind a service account that was already bound the game logs out the current game account and logs in the new, bound account. The old, unbound account is still reachable through a Change account option. Newly logged in account becomes a default one and is used in the following game launches.
Please be aware that upon removal of the game the unbound account is forever lost. Bound accounts can be restored through the binding on a fresh game installation or on another device.
3.4 Subsequent logins
On each subsequent launch of the game the account that was used last time is logged in automatically. If a login operation fails (possibly due to the user signing out of service account) the player is prompted to choose an account that should be used before going into the game.
3.5 When using our Services, you will be required to create an account with us. If you do create an account with us, you agree that you shall take all steps necessary to protect your log in details and keep them secret.
3.6 You agree that you shall not give your log in details to any third parties or allow anyone else to use your log in details or account.
3.7 In these Terms, references to “log in details” or “account” include your log in details and account for any social network or platform that you may allow our Services to interact with.
3.8 We will be entitled to assume that anyone logging into your account using your log in details is either you or someone logging in with your permission. If you fail to keep your login details secret, or if you share your login details or account with someone else (whether intentionally or unintentionally), you accept full responsibility for the consequences of this (including any unauthorized purchases) and agree to fully compensate Golf Slam for any losses or harm that may result.
3.9 We will not be responsible to you for any loss that you suffer as a result of an unauthorized person accessing your account and/or using our Services and we accept no responsibility for any losses or harm resulting from its unauthorized use, whether fraudulently or otherwise.
3.10 We reserve the right to delete your account if no activity is conducted by you in relation to the account for 300 or more days. In such an event, you may no longer be able to access and/or use any Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods (as defined below) associated with that account and no refund will be offered to you in relation to the same.
3.11 You understand that if you delete your account, or if we delete your account in accordance with these Terms, you may lose access to any data previously associated with your account (including, without limitation, your progress through our Game and/or the level, or the fame level, or score you have reached in our game and any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods associated with your account).

4.1 Our Game includes virtual currencies such as Golf Slam Cash and Coins (“Virtual Money”), items or services for use with our game (“Virtual Goods”). To benefit from or use the Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods in our game you may first have to reach a certain level or progress to a certain point. You agree that once purchased, Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods, have no monetary value and can never be exchanged for real money, real goods or real services from us or anyone else. You agree that Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods are not transferrable to any third parties and you will not transfer or attempt to transfer any Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods to anyone else unless this function is incorporated in the Golf Slam game.
4.2 You do not own Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Money but instead you purchase a limited personal revocable license to use them – any balance of Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Money does not reflect any stored value.
4.3 You agree that all sales by us to you of Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods are final, that we will not refund any transaction once it has been made. Virtual Goods exclude all applicable taxes and telecommunication charges, unless otherwise indicated. To the extent required by law, you agree to pay any such applicable taxes and telecommunication charges in line with applicable law. If you live in the European Union you have certain rights to withdraw from distance purchases; however, please note that when you purchase a license to use Virtual Goods or Virtual Money from us, you acknowledge and agree that we will begin the provision of the Virtual Goods or Virtual Money to you promptly once your purchase is complete and therefore your right of withdrawal is lost at this point. For the purposes of this clause 4.3, a “purchase” is complete at the time our servers validate your purchase and the applicable Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Money are successfully credited to your account on our servers.
4.4 If you do not connect your game play on a device to an account that is linked to either your social network accounts or a Golf Slam account, we will not be able to restore any Virtual Money or other data associated with your game play to a different device if you lose that device or it is damaged. Accordingly, on a device which is not connected in this way: (a) any risk of loss of Virtual Money which you purchase from us is transferred to you upon completion of the purchase as described in clause 4.3 above; (b) any risk of loss of Virtual Money that you receive from us without making a purchase is transferred to you at the time the Virtual Money is successfully credited to your account on our servers; and (c) any risk of loss of other data associated with your game play (including, without limitation, your progress through the game, or the level or score you have reached in our game) is transferred to you immediately at the time such game play data is generated.
4.5 The data associated with Virtual Goods, whether purchased by you using Virtual Money or otherwise credited or awarded to you, is stored locally on your device, and may not be synced between different devices even if you have connected your game play on a device to an account that is linked to either your social network account or Golf Slam account. Accordingly, any risk of loss of this data is transferred to you (a) in the case of Virtual Goods which you purchase from us, upon completion of the purchase as described in clause above; and/or (b) in other cases, at the time the Virtual Goods are credited or awarded to you.
4.6 We reserve the right to control, regulate, change, or remove any Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods without any liability to you at any time.
4.7 We reserve the right to revise the pricing for Virtual Goods or Virtual Money offered through the Services at any time. We may limit the total amount of Virtual Goods or Virtual Money that may be purchased at any one time, and/or limit the total amount of Virtual Money or Virtual Goods that may be held in your account in the aggregate. You are only allowed to obtain Virtual Money and Virtual Goods from us or our authorized partners through the Services (if any), and not in any other way.
4.8 Depending on your platform, any Virtual Goods or Virtual Money purchased may be subject to your platform provider’s Terms of service and user agreement. Usage rights for each purchase may differ from item to item. If you are unsure about usage rights, you should check with your platform or our customer support team before making a purchase. Unless otherwise shown, content available in any in-game store has the same age rating as the game.
4.9 As and when we suspend or terminate your account in accordance with these Terms you may lose any Virtual Money, and Virtual Goods that you may have, and we will not compensate you for this loss or make any refund to you.
4.10 The charge for any individual item you can purchase via our game shall be as stated on our game at the time you place the order, except in the case of obvious error. The charge is inclusive of all sales taxes and other charges. Depending on which bank you use, additional charges may be issued by your bank; we have no control over this and accept no liability in relation to the same. If you are unsure whether you will be subject to such additional charges, you should contact your bank before making a purchase via our gaming app. Our payment processing partners may have their own Terms and conditions and you should ensure you agree with these prior to making any payment. If your transaction with our payment processing partners is not successful, then your purchase will not be fulfilled.

Arbitration means that you waive your right to a judge or jury in a court proceeding and your grounds for appeal are limited. Under this agreement, binding arbitration shall be administered by JAMS, a nationally recognized arbitration authority, under its procedures then in effect for consumer related disputes but excluding any rules that permit joinder or class actions in arbitration (for more detail on procedure, see clause 20.5 below). You and Golf Slam understand and agree that (a) the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1, et seq.) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this section of our Terms, (b) this agreement memorializes a transaction in interstate commerce, and (c) this section of our Terms shall survive termination of this agreement.
20.4 Arbitration Procedure
If you or Golf Slam commences arbitration, the arbitration shall be governed by the rules of JAMS that are in effect when the arbitration is filed, excluding any rules that permit arbitration on a class or representative basis (the “JAMS Rules”), and under the rules set forth in this agreement. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by the Terms of this Agreement and must follow applicable law. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this agreement is void or voidable. Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is excluded from arbitration under clause 20.6. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. In some instances, the costs of arbitration can exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. The arbitrator’s award is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone. Arbitration hearings not conducted by telephone shall take place in a location reasonably accessible from your primary residence, or in Florida, at your option. Instructions for initiating an arbitration are available at the JAMS website.
20.5 Class Action Waiver
Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court claims: Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court that only asserts claims for patent infringement or invalidity, copyright infringement, moral rights violations, trademark infringement, and/or trade secret misappropriation, but not, for clarity, claims related to the license granted to you for the Services under these Terms. Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
20.7 Thirty (30) day right to opt-out
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the “Binding Arbitration,” “Location,” and “Class Action Waiver” clauses above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the Golf Slam’s formal address in writing.
