Terms of use

Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully – by accessing or making any use of services (including websites, apps) provided by Golf Apps LTD, you are agreeing to them. You also agree to our Privacy Policy, which sets out how we deal with SpeedStix users’ personal information and privacy, and can be viewed below these terms.

1. Introduction

These Terms set out your rights and obligations, and those of Golf Apps Limited (“we” or “us”), in relation to SpeedStix.com, including any subdomains (the “Site”), “SpeedStix” that you access (the “App(s)”) and any goods or services available through, and material of any kind accessible or relating to, the Site, the App or us (the “Services”). When we refer to “SpeedStix” in these Terms, we mean us, the Site, the App and/or the Services, according to the context.

You must take the time to read and understand these Terms before using SpeedStix. By registering with SpeedStix, you accept that you are entering into a contract with us under these Terms. People who register for SpeedStix establish an “Account”, and become “Users”. Visitors to SpeedStix who do not become Users, but who nevertheless use the Site and/or download the App, affirm that they are bound by these Terms each time they access SpeedStix. You should be aware that these Terms may change from time to time in accordance with Clause 20 below.

2. Obtaining an Account

If we ask you to provide some information about yourself when you register for SpeedStix, you must ensure that this information is accurate and current. You may keep this information updated through your Account.

Note that we are entitled to treat anything done through a User’s Account, or by means of an email address, phone number or other communications method associated with that Account, as having been done by the User; it is up to the User to maintain the security of his/her Account. When you place an order for a Product, you will need to supply us with details of a payment method, such as a credit or debit card, which we accept at the time of your order (your “Payment Method”) and other personal details so that we may process the order for you. In the event that you supply or attempt to use an invalid Payment Method an order made using that Payment Method will fail. If we suspect that your Payment Method belongs to someone else or is one which you are not entitled to use, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account at any time.

The same person may not register more than one Account. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate any Account which we reasonably suspect of infringing this requirement.

Important: You must ensure that the email address we hold for you is kept up-to-date and that you have full access to it – we will be sending you important messages there. So if you change email address, then you must change it on your Account. Should you provide an invalid email address or an email address that belongs to someone else, SpeedStix may terminate your Account at any time without notice.

You should not register as a User if you are under 13 years of age.

3. The Essentials of SpeedStix

SpeedStix provides Users with the facility to access physical training videos, plans, evaluations and corrective exercises. SpeedStix may also offer Users the ability to order:
Personalised training or golf lessons and services which bear Users’ information on or within them; other, non-personalised, products and services, and we refer to those lessons, products and services as our “Products”.

As SpeedStix evolves and changes over time, we may add Products or remove Products from our Services. Clause 6 contains the terms of purchase for Products. It is the responsibility of Users to have sufficient web, app and device usage skills to make use of our Services.  Although we incur cost in providing you with the facility to store and access your training history and other User Content with SpeedStix (your “Storage”), we don’t charge you for this Storage. However, we reserve the right to introduce a policy under which we may withdraw your Storage if (a) you have not purchased a physical or personalised Product from us through your Account at least once in any given twelve month period,(b) we have notified you by email of the fact, and of our intention to withdraw your Storage unless you purchase a physical or personalised Product, and (c) you have not purchased a physical or personalised Product from us within 30 days of that emailed notification. We will notify Users by email if and when we are to commence enforcing this policy.

4.  Backups

It is expected that users are familiar with the backup and restore processes of the devices SpeedStix is installed on, and backups are taken at regular intervals and before any app updates, operating system updates or device upgrades or any other event that may cause the loss of content of the app.

5. User Content and Content Rules

videos and other material (including textual annotations to and comments on videos) uploaded, posted, contributed, distributed, communicated, transmitted or linked-to by a User on, through or in connection with SpeedStix are treated as “User Content” for the purposes of these Terms. Users must have the right to deal with their User Content in the manner provided by our Services. You must not upload User Content, or otherwise deal with User Content through SpeedStix, if you do not have the right to do so. Each User
shall ensure that his/her User Content does not:

  • infringe anyone’s copyright; in particular, you must ensure that you either own the copyright in an video that you upload to SpeedStix or that you are fully licensed by the copyright owner to upload the video and to make any subsequent use of it (such as by including the video in a personalised Product);
  • infringe any other rights, such as a trade mark, of any person or entity or a duty owed to any person or entity, such as a duty of confidentiality;
  • contravene any applicable law (including, without limitation, any criminal law) or regulation;
  • include anything that is false, inaccurate, misleading, offensive, abusive, threatening or defamatory, or that might cause needless annoyance, inconvenience or distress to any person;
  • contain any computer virus, macro virus, Trojan horse, worm, or anything else designed to interfere with, interrupt, or disrupt the normal operating procedures of a computer or to surreptitiously intercept, access without authority, or expropriate any system, data or personal information;
  • misrepresent the User’s identity in any way or impersonate any person;
  • include any material containing personally identifying information about another person, such as their real name, address, phone number, or email address, except with the written approval of that person;
  • contain material which is pornographic, obscene, indecent or offensive, which promotes discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age, or that may incite hatred or violence against any person or group;
  • harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any person;
  • give the impression that it emanates from us, if this is not the case;
  • advocate, promote or assist any unlawful act such as (by way of example only) copyright infringement or computer misuse; or infringe our fair use requirements (see Clause 4 above) or otherwise interfere with the proper working of SpeedStix.

The above are our Content Rules.
Although we prohibit the uploading of videos and other User Content which infringes our Content Rules, we cannot control and do not monitor or pre-screen the use of our Site and App. It is possible that videos or other User Content may be accessible through our Site and App which contravenes our Content Rules. We are not responsible for such videos or User Content, but if you become aware of any such videos or User Content on our Site or App please contact us here.

We may without notice delete any video or other User Content which appears to breach our Content Rules, or prevent any use of Services (including purchase of Products) which includes any such video or User Content.

6. Terms of purchase for Products

A contract between a User and SpeedStix for the purchase of a Product is created as follows:

The User places the order for a Product on the Site or App by pressing an order confirmation button at the end of the checkout process:

  • if the Product in question includes an video or other User Content selected by the User it is a “personalised Product”;
  • if it is a standard Product or physical device which does not include any video or User Content it is a “nonpersonalised Product”.

By confirming your order, you are agreeing to purchase the Product you have selected.

Note that SpeedStix may reject an order in certain circumstances, namely:

  • Your order breaching the requirements of these Terms;
  • The use of videos which infringe the Content Rules;
  • The use of videos which are corrupted, unsupported technically or inadequately pixelated;
  • The Product you order being unavailable;
  • Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment;
  • A relevant pricing or Product description error being identified.

7. International use of SpeedStix

You must ensure that you comply with the laws that apply to you and your use of SpeedStix, including as to User Content, the videos that may be viewed and the Products that may be bought  through SpeedStix. That use may be prohibited or restricted in various jurisdictions.

8. Closure of Accounts

You may choose to cancel your Account at any time here You may be asked to provide further proof that you are the holder of the Account. Further, we are entitled to lapse an Account if its User has not logged in to the Account for two years or more. If your Account is terminated because you have breached this Agreement (including a breach of our Content Rules), we may prohibit you from establishing another Account. Where an Account is cancelled, lapses or is terminated, we are entitled to close the Account and entitled (but not obliged) to delete all videos and other User Content associated with that Account. You will nevertheless remain responsible for performing your obligations under these Terms, and the rights granted to us under these Terms (including in Clause 9) shall not be terminated as a result.

9. Intellectual Property

You may use and access SpeedStix and that User Content only to the extent required for the use of the Services in accordance with these Terms, and for the purpose that we make them available.  No-one may copy, distribute, show in public or create any derivative work from SpeedStix, or any of the material which is found on SpeedStix unless properly licensed to do so by us. You are not allowed to use SpeedStix (or to copy or use any material found on SpeedStix) for any commercial purpose other than to conduct the purchase of a Product from SpeedStix. You are not allowed to remove any copyright, trade mark or other intellectual property notices contained in material taken from SpeedStix. No-one may use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access SpeedStix for any purpose without our prior express written permission.

By uploading, posting, contributing, distributing, communicating or transmitting User Content (including videos), a User expressly grants to us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable license (including the right to grant sub-licences through multiple tiers) to use, reproduce, adapt, distribute and communicate to the public that User Content (a) worldwide through SpeedStix and any other interactive services through which SpeedStix (or a service based on SpeedStix) is accessible, and (b) too perform obligations and exercise rights under these Terms. For the avoidance of  oubt, the licence under this Clause 9 will survive any termination of these Terms or any cancellation, suspension or lapse of the relevant Account. Note that we may modify User Content in order to conform it to SpeedStix or the requirements of a Product (such as by cropping videos). You acknowledge that all copyright, trade marks, and other intellectual property rights in and relating to  SpeedStix (including, without limitation, User Content associated Users other than you) are owned by, or licensed to, us.

10. Privacy

Our Privacy Policy governs all users of SpeedStix. By using or accessing SpeedStix, you give your consent to the content of that policy. If you do not wish your personal data to be handled in that way, then you must not use SpeedStix. Users shall not use the Services in connection with the sending of any unsolicited messages, or to harvest or otherwise collect information about Users, including email addresses, without their express consent. No User shall use any information regarding other Users that is accessible through the Services except as expressly permitted by these Terms.

11. Our Role

The user expressly indemnifies Golf Apps LTD from any liability arising from the loss of data.

Third Party Promotions may contain materials which you find offensive, objectionable, unlawful or inaccurate. The sites or other destinations to which Third Party Promotions lead are governed by their own terms of use and privacy policies which will differ from these Terms.

Provided that those terms are notified to you on SpeedStix in an appropriate manner (as determined by us in our reasonable discretion) when you agree to take those services, any failure by you to comply with a material provision of the terms governing those services will amount to a breach of these Terms.

15. Operation of SpeedStix

We reserve the right to withdraw or modify all or part of the Services or SpeedStix where we have legal or commercial reasons to do so. There may be times when the operation of SpeedStix is adversely affected, or becomes inaccessible, as a result of technical difficulties experienced by SpeedStix, on the Internet or other communications networks, or other matters that are beyond our control. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to SpeedStix or any of the material that appears on it.
