6. How contracts are formed between Activity Bookers and Activity Providers.

Each order placed by the Booker shall be deemed to be an offer to purchase the services of the Activity Provider as specified within applicable details on the product page.

The contract between the Activity Booker and Activity Provider will relate only to those services notified in the email acknowledgement of order, which shall constitute the acceptance of the offer. Both Activity Booker and Activity Provider acknowledge that they intend to create legal relations.

We are not a party to that contract.

7. Payment methods

Where payment is required for services offered by the Activity Provider details of the payment methods available are detailed within the product description and at the payment gateway.

The Get Into Golf platform allows Activity Providers to set PayPal as the payment collection portal for their profile. When using this feature, Activity Providers are required to use their own PayPal accounts to collect payment. The transaction of payment is always between the Activity Booker and Activity Provider. At no point is the payment transaction handled by the Service Provider.

Both parties acknowledge that these terms, and/or any transaction made by them via the Get Into Golf platform, do not create or imply any partnership, joint venture or trust relationship between the Service Provider and/or the Activity Booker and/or Activity Provider.

8. Cancellation & Refunds

The Service Provider empowers Activity Providers to set and manage their cancellation policies. The Booker should be aware that they will be bound by these policies. It is recommended that these are detailed on the Activity Provider’s website, which can be accessed by the Booker from the Provider’s ‘Facility Page’ within the Get Into Golf platform. We shall not accept any liability for the Activity Providers’ failure to properly set and manage their cancellation policies and incorporate them into their contract with the Booker.

If a Provider or Booker needs to cancel a reservation, it’s their responsibility to cancel as soon as possible. In addition to the Activity Providers rights under clause 14 (Force majeure) below, at times, certain circumstances outside a Provider or Bookers’ control can impact their ability to meet the terms of a reservation. These circumstances should be set out in the Cancellation Policy.

Where a transaction of payment has taken place using the PayPal service detailed above, it is the responsibility of the Activity Provider to activate the appropriate refund if the conditions of their cancellation policy have been met.

When using the Get Into Golf platform, both the Activity Providers and Activity Bookers acknowledge that the Service Provider is not responsible for any loss or damage linked to cancellations by either party and each party shall provide an indemnity to the Service Provider for any claim by the other party.

9. Health & Safety Licences and Insurance

Activity Providers acknowledge that Get Into Golf is not responsible for your activities.  You agree to, and shall procure that your sub-contractors agree to, comply with all applicable equality legislation; health and safety and fire legislation; data protection legislation, and all codes of practice made under such legislation including but not limited to those issued by the Health & Safety Executive, the Home Office and any Get Into Golf safety requirements notified to you. Activity Providers agree to ensure that they have all necessary licences in place for the activities.
