GP3S Terms of Service

Effective Date: 15 June 2022

Welcome to GP3S. We want you to know and understand your rights and our rights relating to the provision of the Services (as defined below). Please review them carefully.

Terms of Service

The GP3S websites, related mobile applications and services (collectively, the “Services”) are made available to you by GP3S,. with its address at Heide 8 , Sint Nicolaasga,  The Netherlands, under company code 08173857 subject to these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) and in accordance with the GP3S Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”). More information about the Services may be found at www.gps-speedsurfing.com . You agree to comply with these Terms and any supplemental terms which GP3S makes available to you on the Services which shall form part of the Terms. BY ACCESSING, USING OR UPLOADING OR DOWNLOADING ANY INFORMATION OR MATERIALS TO OR FROM THE SERVICES, OR BY INDICATING YOUR ASSENT TO THESE TERMS BY CREATING AN ACCOUNT, CLICKING “SIGN UP” OR ANY SIMILAR MECHANISM, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES. This agreement was written in English. To the extent a translated version of the Terms conflict with the English version, the English version controls.

If you access or use the Services on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent that you have authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these Terms and that it is fully binding on them. In such case, the term “you” will refer to such entity and its affiliates. If you do not have authority, you may not access or use the Services. These Terms contain disclaimers of warranties and limitations on liability that may be applicable to you.

The GP3S Services cannot be provided and the agreement described in these Terms of Service cannot be performed without GP3S processing data about you, and other GP3S athletes, including your location data. Processing of the data you share with GP3S, including location data, is essential to the Services which we provide and a necessary part of our performance of the agreement we have with you.

Notice Regarding Dispute Resolution: These Terms contain provisions that govern how disputes between you and GP3S are resolved, including an agreement to arbitrate, which will, unless you reside in the European Union, with limited exception, require you to submit claims you have against us to binding and final arbitration and limit you to claims against GP3S on an individual basis, unless you opt-out in accordance with the instructions below.

Registration and Accounts

The Services are intended solely for persons who are 13 years old or such higher age required in your country to use the Services. If you are under the legal age to form a binding contract in your jurisdiction, you represent that your parent or legal guardian has reviewed and agreed to these Terms on your behalf.

To use the Services, you must register. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself (“Athlete Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Athlete Data. You agree that GP3S may use your Athlete Data to provide Services that you access or use and as otherwise set forth in these Terms. If you provide any Athlete Data that is inaccurate or not current, or GP3S has reasonable grounds to suspect that such Athlete Data is inaccurate or not current, GP3S has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse current or future use of the Services. In consideration of your use of the Services, you represent that you are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of any applicable jurisdiction.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password associated with your account and for restricting access to your password, your computer and mobile device while logged into the Services. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or from your computer and mobile devices. We endeavor to use reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to your account. We cannot, however, guarantee absolute security of your account, your Content (as defined below) or the personal information you provide, and we cannot promise that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally accessing the Services or its contents. You agree to immediately notify GP3S of any unauthorized use of your account or password, or any other breach of security, and confirm that you understand all risks of unauthorized access to Athlete Data and any other information or content you provide to GP3S.

You may register for or log-in to your account via a third-party network, such as Facebook or Google. If you do so, you hereby authorize GP3S to pre-populate the registration and other relevant information fields of your account and/or to use such third-party credentials to log you into your account. If you connect your account to a third-party network, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions and policies applicable to such third party.

By virtue of certain of the Services connecting to the Google Maps API, you hereby agree to be bound by the Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service (including the Google Privacy Policy) in connection with your use of such Services.

Payments and Fees

Payments

To pay any fee, you must designate and provide information about your preferred payment method (e.g., credit card, online payment service, a third party, like iTunes or Google Play, or any other payment method made available by GP3S) (the “Payment Method”). If you provide your payment information, you authorize us and certain third party service providers, payment card networks and payment processors to receive, store and encrypt your payment information. You may switch to a different Payment Method or update your information by visit www.gps-speedsurfing.com . If you paid through the Google Play or iTunes store, you may change your Payment Method through the corresponding store account. No refunds or credits will be provided by GP3S, other than as set forth in these Terms. If your payment provider determines that there are fraudulent charges on your account resulting from use of your Payment Method at the Services, please contact us immediately via www.gps-speedsurfing.com

Fees

In order to access certain functionality of the Services, you may be required to pay subscription fees. Subscription fees, along with any required taxes, may be paid on a monthly or annual basis. All subscription fees are payable in advance. Athletes changing from monthly to annual subscriptions will have the annual rates take effect at the beginning of the next billing date. You agree to pay the subscription fees, and other charges you incur in connection with your GP3S account, whether on a one-time or subscription basis. GP3S reserves the right to increase subscription fees, any associated taxes, or to institute new fees at any time upon reasonable advance notice.

Auto-Renewal

Subscription fees will be billed automatically at the start of the monthly or annual period, as applicable. These fees will auto-renew until your subscription is downgraded or terminated. Your subscription fee will be the same as your initial charges unless you are otherwise notified in advance. You may cancel your subscription at any time, as described below.

Cancellation

Cancellation of Subscription

If you signed up on www.gps-speedsurfing.com, you may cancel your subscription by visiting your “Account” page and selecting “Downgrade.” The cancellation of a subscription will go into effect at the end of your current billing cycle.

Content and Conduct

Content

You own the information, data, text, software, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, posts, tags, or other materials you make available in connection with the Services (“Content”), whether publicly posted, privately transmitted, or submitted through a third party API (e.g. a photograph submitted via Instagram). You grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, publicly perform and display any Content and any name, username or likeness that you post on or in connection with the Services in all media formats and channels now known or later developed without compensation to you.

GP3S does not routinely screen or monitor the Content posted to the Services by others and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. GP3S may, in its sole discretion, screen, monitor, hide, refuse or remove any Content, or remove any Content that violates the Terms or is otherwise objectionable. You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.

As between you and GP3S, any Content will be non-confidential and non-proprietary and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of Content. You acknowledge and agree that your relationship with GP3S is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other type of special relationship, and that your decision to submit any Content does not place GP3S in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public, including with regard to your Content.

The Services may provide you with the ability to mark certain Content that you submit to the Services as private, public, or available only to select users of the Services. GP3S will maintain the privacy of such Content in accordance with your elections. However, if you do not elect to mark your Content as private or available for a limited group of athletes, or later change such designation to allow such Content to be made available to anyone, you are responsible for the public nature of the content. Please review our Privacy Policy for more information on how to manage your privacy controls.

Your rights with respect to GP3S are not modified by the foregoing indemnification if the laws of your country of residence, applicable as a result of your use of our Services, do not permit it.

Dispute Resolution

You agree that GP3S may, under certain serious circumstances and without prior notice, immediately suspend or terminate your account and/or access to the Services.

General

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, joint controllership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and GP3S as a result of the Terms or your use of the Services. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and GP3S with respect to your use of the Services. The failure of GP3S to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. You may not assign, delegate or otherwise transfer your account or your obligations under these Terms without the prior written consent of GP3S. GP3S has the right, in its sole discretion, to transfer or assign all or any part of its rights under these Terms and will have the right to delegate or use third party contractors to fulfill its duties and obligations under these Terms and in connection with the Services. GP3S’s notice to you via email, regular mail or notices, posts, or links on the Services shall constitute acceptable notice to you under the Terms. A printed version of the Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Section titles and headings in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

Modification of the Terms and Services

Certain provisions of the Terms may be supplemented or superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages on the Services. GP3S reserves the right to update the Terms at any time and for any reason in its sole discretion. GP3S will notify you of any material changes to the Terms or to any service or other features of the Services. By continuing to access or use the Services after we have provided you with notice of a modification, you are agreeing to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services.

GP3S and its third party service providers may make improvements and/or changes in the Services, products, services, mobile applications, features, programs, and prices described at any time and for any reason in its sole discretion. The mobile application may download and install upgrades, updates and additional features in order to improve, enhance, and further develop the Services. GP3S reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services or any portion thereof with or without notice.
