LICENCE TERMS AND CONDITIONS – APPLICABLE WORLDWIDE EXCEPT WHERE WE PUBLISH SPECIFIC TERRITORIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions (“Terms”) set out important information regarding the rights, obligations and restrictions that may apply to you as a “User” when you access our “Website” at https://sportsacademy.us/ and/or access, use or download the Sports Academy “Application” available on “Devices” such as cell phones, tablets, and personal computers, and any “Services” offered in conjunction with the Application or Website. The Services may include content and media identification and exploration and, in some cases, access to related “Third Party Applications and/or Sites” that can be used in conjunction with the Services (for example, e-commerce providers, social networking sites, sites accessible via QR codes, information and access feature providers). The Application is licensed, not sold, to you by Sports Academy Venture Lab, Inc. (“Sports Academy,” “we,” “us” and “our” as appropriate) for use subject to these Terms. Sports Academy and/or its licensors retain ownership of the Application itself and reserve all rights not expressly granted to you. The Services, where not specifically provided otherwise, are supplied by Sports Academy as defined below.
You can also contact us by email email@example.com.
These Terms may be accessed via the Application directly from your Device or on our Website at https://sportsacademy.us/terms-of-use-privacy-policy/app/. Any translations of these Terms are provided as a courtesy to you and the definitive text of these Terms is the English (USA) version. By using our Services, you (1) represent you are over the age of 18; and (2) agree to be bound by these Terms and any applicable laws regarding your use of Sports Academy.

In the event that you are or become a paying customer of any part of the Application and/ or Services or any other product part of the Sports Academy offering, we will provide to you relevant information regarding price, delivery procedure and cancellation options on a case–by-case basis, before completing the payment for your purchase. Any purchase will be effective upon the processing of your payment.
2. Once you start using Sports Academy, you hereby agree to waive any right to a limited period in which you could revoke your purchase or claim a refund upon cancellation of your purchase (also known as a cooling off period) (if any) available to you under any applicable e-commerce regulations or consumer protection laws. In the event a waiver of these rights is prohibited under the law, this cooling off period shall be limited to seven (7) days or (if shorter) the minimum period permitted by law.
3. Each time you attempt to interact with Sports Academy, such as when you log a competition for example, you will send data for which your network operator will charge at your usual data rates.
4. Unless otherwise specifically provided by us, our license to you under these Terms is personal to you and allows you to access and use the Application and the Services only on the Device on which the software was first installed. The license is not transferrable to another person or another Device without our agreement, which will only be given in exceptional circumstances, or if otherwise expressly provided in these Terms.

We may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of Sports Academy at any time, including the availability of any feature, database and/ or content. We may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without liability. Where these changes or suspensions would amount to a complete termination of the Services you may be entitled to a refund of the reasonable part of any charges paid by you.
Continued use of the Application and/ or Services may require a download of new releases of software with different functionality and that may have different license terms.
Usage of content supplied to you by us, either through our Website or our Applications, is limited to your personal, non-commercial use in accordance with the following restrictions. You may not reproduce (other than as authorized for your own personal usage), publish, transmit, distribute, publicly display, rent or lend, modify, create derivative works from, sell or participate in the sale of or exploit in any way, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, any of the content provided to you.

AVAILABILITY OF SERVICES
We will do our best to offer you a smooth service, but we give no guarantees that The Website, Application and Services will be fault free or that the Services will be uninterrupted.

We welcome your feedback on what we are currently doing (both positive and negative). If you want to send us your feedback, we ask that you use our contact form. Any feedback you provide to us can be used by us on an unrestricted basis and treated by us as non-confidential.
Please do not tell us anything that contains new or original ideas, in respect of which you might want, now or in future, to claim any form of proprietary rights. If, despite our request that you not send us your ideas, you still send them to us, then regardless of what you say to us, you agree that: (i) your submissions and their contents will automatically become our property, without any compensation to you; (ii) you will not assert against us any rights or ownership and you will not claim any reward (financial or otherwise) in respect of any such submissions; (iii) we may use or redistribute the submissions and their contents for any purpose and in any way; (iv) there is no obligation for us to review any material that you submit to us; and (v) there is no obligation to keep any such material confidential.
These Terms and the relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. In the event of a dispute, we want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against us, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 30 business days of submission, you or Sports Academy may bring a formal proceeding.
In the United States You and Sports Academy agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Los Angeles, California or any other location we agree to. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Sports Academy agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Los Angeles, CA . Both you and Sports Academy consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
