Your access and use of such linked websites, including information, material, products and services therein, is solely at your own risk.
7. RESPONSIBILITY FOR USE; LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
Quick.golf does not control the Content posted to the Quick.golf Sites and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. Under no circumstances will Quick.golf be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, liability for any errors or omissions in any Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed or otherwise transmitted or displayed via the Site. Each user must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with the use of the Site and any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, integrity or usefulness of the Site or any such Content.
When you use the Site to arrange to play Quick.golf sessions at golf courses listed on the Site, Quick.golf is acting as a third-party settlement organization engaging in third party network transactions on behalf of the golf course(s) where you play your golf. Each Quick.golf transaction consists of three steps; 1) you are responsible for initiating the transaction, entering or confirming information about the credit/debit card that you will use to pay for the transaction and stopping at the golf course shop to check in, 2) the golf course operator is responsible for checking you in to play by entering the type of play (e.g., ride or walk) and the number of players that you will pay for and 3) you are responsible for verifying the check-in information and then entering the number of holes played (or asking the golf course operator to enter the number of holes played) no later than midnight on your day of play. If you fail to enter the number of holes played by midnight on the day of play, the golf course operator may charge you an amount based on that golf course’s policy, which will usually be to charge you for either 9 or 18 holes per player. If you have any questions or concerns related to any of these steps, you should discuss those issues directly with the management of the golf course involved in the transaction. The golf course operator must authorize any refunds or fee adjustments to charges for Quick.golf transactions.
Each user shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Quick.golf from any and all claims, demands, damages, costs, and liabilities including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of that user’s acts or omissions, including claims arising out of that user’s use of the Site; his or her submission, posting or transmission of Content or his or her violation of the Terms.
EACH USER’S USE OF THE SITE IS AT HIS OR HER SOLE RISK. THE SITE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. QUICK.GOLF EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. QUICK.GOLF SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY USER’S USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE. IN NO EVENT SHALL QUICK.GOLF’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO ANY USER OR OTHER PARTY UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR OTHERWISE EXCEED $10.00. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

We urge you to exercise caution when providing personally identifiable financial or other information in the blogs or other message areas. Remember that any information you disclose in these areas becomes public information.
Our Collection of Your Data
In addition to the personal information you supply, we collect certain information to evaluate how visitors, guests, and members use the Site. We collect data to make our service work better for you in the following ways: to improve the design of the Site, to provide personalization on the Site and to evaluate the performance of our marketing programs. The technologies we use to gather this non-personal information may include “IP” addresses, “cookies”, “clear gifs”, browser detection, and “weblogs”.
How We Use Information
Our primary goal in collecting your customer information is to provide you with a personalized, relevant, and positive experience with the Site.
You can register on the Site to receive promotions and updates, or to be contacted for market research purposes. The contact information you submit will not be used for these purposes unless you specifically “opt-in”.
From time to time, you may be invited to participate in optional customer surveys or promotions, and Quick.golf may request that you provide some or all of the above listed personal information in those surveys or promotions. We use information collected from surveys to learn about our customers in order to improve our services and develop new products and services of interest to our customers.
Quick.golf may use IP addresses, cookies, clear gifs, browser detection, and weblogs to provide a better experience on our website and to give us useful business information.
“IP” addresses define the Internet location of computers and help us better understand the geographic distribution of our members and manage the performance of the Site. “Cookies” are tiny files placed onto the hard drive of your computer when you visit the Site, so we can immediately recognize you when you return to the site and deliver content specific to your interests. You may modify your browser preferences to accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or reject all cookies. Please consult your browser instructions for information on how to modify your choices about cookies.
We may also use a technology called “clear gifs”. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with unique identifiers that are used to track emails and online movements, helping us understand what marketing campaigns and content are effective.
We may detect the type of web browser you are using to optimize the performance of our website and to understand the mix of browsers used by our visitors, guests, and members. To learn about how people use our site, we examine weblogs, which show the paths people take through our site and how long they spend in certain areas.
Our Commitment to Data Security
Access to your data is limited to registered users of our service, Quick.golf staff or approved vendors. Although total security does not exist on the Internet, Quick.golf shall make commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the information that you submit to Quick.golf.
When you sign up as a registered Quick.golf user, you may elect to have Quick.golf provide you with marketing communications such as e-mail newsletters, product and service updates and promotions. Our customers generally find this type of information useful. If you do not want to continue to receive such communications, you can select the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any marketing communication email and follow the opt-out instructions.

We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, website hosting and maintenance, customer relationship management, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns.

Aggregate, Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We aggregate data for reporting and analysis to understand, for example, the total number of users performing certain activities on the site or the total amount of golf played at certain golf facilities. We may use this aggregate, non-personally identifiable information for any purpose and may distribute this information to any of our service providers, customers or business partners in our sole discretion.
