The Client bears full responsibility for transferring its contents and for any actions or omissions resulting from the access and usage of the Platform by Users. Furthermore, it is explicitly understood that any User accessing the Platform does so with the Client’s express authorization. As a result, Golfmanager disclaims any responsibility in this regard.

Golfmanager bears no responsibility for any disclosure of this data to third parties, whether such disclosure is intentional or negligent, by the Client and/or Users.

In the event of the termination of this Agreement for any reason as outlined below, the Provider shall automatically disable the Account and permanently delete it within six (6) months following the termination date, unless an official investigation or a similar proceeding is still in progress, or if a court order dictates otherwise.
3.6. Interoperability and Connection of the Platform with Third-Party Services. The interoperability and connection of the Platform with other computer programs or software owned by third parties shall be possible, provided that such third parties provide prior notice to Golfmanager and accept the linkage and conditions determined by Golfmanager. If these third parties do not accept the linkage and conditions, Golfmanager may not establish a connection with them. In any case, Golfmanager shall not be held responsible for any failures, errors, or circumstances arising from such connections that affect the Platform. These responsibilities shall rest solely with the Client and the third parties involved. Consequently, Golfmanager will not provide specialized technical support to ensure the proper functioning of such connections.

In such cases, these Users will assume full and complete responsibility for any resulting liability towards the Client, with Golfmanager absolved of any responsibility for such modifications.
3.8. As is Service. The Client understands and agrees that access to and use of the Platform are provided by Golfmanager “as is,” as described in this Agreement, including all its attachments.

It is important to note that the Fee is non-refundable, even in cases of inactivity or underutilization of an active Account. The Fees do not include taxes, levies, or duties applicable by law, unless the Parties have expressly agreed otherwise in writing. In the event of such an agreement, the responsibility for payment of such taxes, levies, or duties shall fall entirely upon the Client as an additional obligation.
4.2. Fee Amount. The precise amount of the Fee is specified in the financial proposal forwarded by Golfmanager to the Client, which is considered an attachment to this Agreement.

Additionally, it may be adjusted at different intervals in the event of enhancements to the functionalities offered by the Platform. In both scenarios, Golfmanager will provide the Client with written notification well in advance. The Client reserves the right to object to such fee modifications, resulting in the option to terminate the Service.
4.3. Payment of the fee. The Fee must be remitted via credit card through the designated payment gateway provided by Golfmanager. Additionally, in select markets, the Client may opt for direct debit as a payment method. In specific instances, at Golfmanager’s discretion, such as when dealing with substantial payments, bank transfers may also be accepted, pending approval by Golfmanager.
4.4. Electronic Invoice. The Client will receive the invoice at the email address provided in writing for this purpose and is obligated to make the payment by the due date specified on the invoice.
