TournamentCaddie reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace any of the terms or conditions of this TOS at any time. It is your responsibility to check this TOS periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of any changes to this TOS constitutes acceptance of those changes. If any change to this TOS is not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease accessing, browsing and otherwise using the Services.

2. Description of TournamentCaddie
TournamentCaddie provides registered users who are event organizers and planners including charity event organizers (“Organizers” or “you”) to create an event registration microsite (“Site”), collect payments with respect to the sale of sponsorship and entries for events created using the Services (“Event Registration Fees”), from users who want to attend or sponsor such events (“Registrants” or “Sponsors”), and manage event attributes such as foursome pairings and event scorecards. Using the Services, Organizers complete details about their event, including pricing, location, etc., and collect fees online directly from Registrants or Sponsors. Payments are processed through third party payment service methods or the TournamentCaddie platform. TournamentCaddie provides its basic services free of charge, some features including (but not limited to) collecting registration or sponsorship fees, or managing payouts are subject to a service fee. These fees may be charged directly by TournamentCaddie or indirectly from third-party service providers integrated into the TournamentCaddie product offering. This TOS applies to you and your use of the Services as an Organizer.
3. Your Use of the Services
TournamentCaddie hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to access and use the Services solely for the purposes of creating an event website with respect to, and promoting, managing, tracking, and collecting Event Registration and Sponsorship Fees for an event that you have registered on the Site, in each case (i) in compliance with this TOS, and (ii) to the extent permitted under all applicable laws and regulations (foreign and domestic). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall not, and shall not permit anyone else to, directly or indirectly: (i) modify, reproduce or otherwise create derivatives of any part of the Services or Site Content (as defined below); (ii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or structure, sequence and organization of all or any part of the Services (except that this restriction shall not apply to the limited extent restrictions on reverse engineering are prohibited by applicable local law); (iii) rent, lease, resell, distribute or use the Services for timesharing, service bureau, or commercial purposes (except for the limited commercial purpose of selling event entries and sponsorships through the Site as an Organizer in accordance with this TOS); (iv) remove or alter any proprietary notices or labels on or in the Services or Site Content; or (v) engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services.
If you are allowed to download or use any Software in connection with the Services, TournamentCaddie hereby grants you a personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-exclusive license to use the Software solely for your internal use in connection with the Services, and only in accordance with this TOS and the written instructions/directions (if any) provided by TournamentCaddie in conjunction with the Software. For purposes of this TOS, “Software” shall mean any and all software that is available on or through the Site or otherwise provided by TournamentCaddie, including without limitation future mobile applications. For clarity, the Software will be deemed a part of the Services hereunder. The Software and the transmission of applicable data is subject to Canadian export controls. No Software may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported in violation of Canadian export laws. Downloading or using the Software is at your sole risk. You shall also be responsible for using the Software in a manner that complies with all federal, provincial and local laws and the rules and regulations of all credit card companies.
4. Payment Methods & Event Payouts
Organizers will use our designated credit card processing (“CCP”), for the collection of information to process Event Registration, Sponsorship, and related fees.
TournamentCaddie event registration and sponsorship, certain feature unlock, and value-add products that require CCP are processed on the TournamentCaddie platform using Stripe (www.stripe.com). TournamentCaddie will act as Organizers agent to collect Event Registration and Sponsorship Fees on behalf of the Organizer from Registrant. TournamentCaddie will deduct or append pricing to include all applicable Services Fees from the Event Registration and Sponsorship Fees collected by TournamentCaddie. As an Organizer, your available account balance will be displayed in your TournamentCaddie administrative console. Notwithstanding any applicable payouts, once you complete the integrated Stripe electronic deposit process and designate your destination bank account your net-event revenue will be paid out as follows; up to 50% of your net-event revenue (less service charge of credit card transaction fees) will be paid out to your Stripe account immediately against every registration ticket item transaction. Your remaining account balance (net-event revenue, less any value-add purchases) will be paid out to your Stripe account automatically on the first business day following your event day. TournamentCaddie reserves the right to withhold funds from remittances (i) at any time as TournamentCaddie determines to be necessary for the processing and settlement of all refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks, customer complaints, allegations of fraud, and other discrepancies and (ii) as otherwise permitted pursuant to this TOS. TournamentCaddie, in its sole discretion, may determine to advance a portion of Event Registration and Sponsorship Fees collected to an Organizer manually prior to the period set forth above, on such terms and conditions as TournamentCaddie may establish from time to time. Organizer agrees that all Event Registration and Sponsorship Fees for a given event are earned by Organizer only following conclusion of the applicable event and all Event Registration and Sponsorship Fees ultimately due will be net of all Service Fees, refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks and other deductions, whether due to customer complaints, allegations of fraud, discrepancies related to the applicable event or otherwise. All sales, fees, charges, and funds are payable in Canadian Dollars, or other foreign currencies accepted by TournamentCaddie. If Organizer selects a foreign currency option accepted by TournamentCaddie, TournamentCaddie will collect and disburse the funds in the foreign currency selected by Organizer.
Under the CCP option, it is the responsibility of the Organizer to communicate its refund policy to Registrants and to issue refunds to Registrants via the Site. A Organizer shall ensure that its refund policy is consistent with the terms of this TOS and the payment and refund mechanics of the Site. The Site permits an Organizer to issue refunds to Registrants, provided there is sufficient available account balance within the Organizer account, the refund is issued by Organizer before ninety-six (96) hours after the end date of an event and within six (6) months after the transaction date for the underlying entry purchase. Refunds issued following such periods, or attempted without sufficient account balance will not be processed through the Site, unless otherwise agreed to by TournamentCaddie in its sole discretion. Subject to the foregoing, refunds issued by an Organizer will be processed within thirty (30) days after Organizer instructs the issuance of the refunds via the Site. TournamentCaddie is available for communications and disputes regarding refunds for Registrants and Organizers. In the event the funds for a specified payment period have already been disbursed to an Organizer and they do not have sufficient available balance within their TournamentCaddie account, TournamentCaddie can facilitate communication with the Organizer. In the event of an error in issuing refunds, or lack of refunds in connection with the use of the CCP option TournamentCaddie in its sole discretion will decide the resolution. All credit card processing fees are non-refundable.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that TournamentCaddie shall have the right to force a refund of any or all entries at any time for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if TournamentCaddie receives complaints from a substantial number (as determined by TournamentCaddie in its sole discretion) of Registrants with respect to the applicable event or another event held by Organizer, or TournamentCaddie determines in its sole discretion that Organizer has engaged in any fraudulent activity or made any misrepresentations. Further, if one or more Registrant(s) request a refund, whether due to a canceled event or for any other reason where TournamentCaddie would reasonably expect to lose a chargeback, TournamentCaddie may, in its sole discretion, issue such refund to such Registrant(s), and Organizer shall then owe the amount of such refund to TournamentCaddie.
Under the CCP option, any credit card chargebacks initiated by a Registrant for any reason with respect to an event shall be charged back to the Organizer of such event. All communications and disputes regarding chargebacks are between the Organizer and Registrant, and TournamentCaddie will not be responsible or liable in any way for, and Organizer hereby agrees to fully indemnify TournamentCaddie and its affiliates for, chargebacks issued in the course of the use of the CCP option.
TournamentCaddie processes all event payouts to Organizers electronically using Stripe. You acknowledge and agree that as part of Stripe's identity verification process - typically known as “Know Your Customer” (KYC) regulations - you may be required to provide Stripe with personally identifiable information in order to verify your identity and process payouts to your destination bank account or debit card. This may include personal information and a scan of a government-issued ID. Every country has its own requirements that accounts must meet to be able to pay out funds to individuals and companies. Regardless of the country, the broad requirements are:
(i) Collecting information about the individual or company receiving funds
(ii) Verifying the information is accurate
Stripe will attempt verification, asking Organizers directly for more information when needed.
In the event that Organizer fails to pay to TournamentCaddie any amount owed pursuant to this TOS when due, such amount shall bear interest calculated from the date due until paid in full at a rate equal to the lesser of (a) ten percent (10%) per annum, and (b) the maximum amount permitted by applicable law. In the event any amounts are owed by Organizer to TournamentCaddie under this TOS or otherwise, TournamentCaddie may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, (i) deduct such amounts from Organizer’s outstanding balance, whether for that particular event or for any other event that Organizer lists through the Services; and/or (ii) send an invoice to Organizer for such amounts to the extent Organizer’s outstanding balance is insufficient to cover these costs, in which case Organizer shall pay TournamentCaddie such invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice. In addition, Organizer hereby agrees and authorizes TournamentCaddie to initiate an electronic funds transfer to debit the amounts owed from any of Organizer’s bank accounts to which Event Registration Fees have been sent. If payment for any amounts due to TournamentCaddie hereunder are not made by Organizer when due, TournamentCaddie reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without limiting its other rights and remedies, to terminate Organizer’s registration for the Services (including any and all accounts that Organizer may have) and to cancel all other events listed by Organizer.
Upon receipt of a credit card authorization from each individual entry purchase, TournamentCaddie generates a confirmation message and issues a unique confirmation number. You agree to unconditionally accept, honour, and fulfill all entry commitments that have been confirmed by TournamentCaddie through the Services, and it is your responsibility to verify the Registrant’s status, confirmation number and/or any event restrictions prior to the subject event.
TournamentCaddie reserves the right to withhold the payment of any amounts owed to you hereunder if (i) TournamentCaddie suspects or determines that such amounts have been generated in (A) a fraudulent manner, (B) violation of this TOS, or (C) violation of any applicable laws or regulations (foreign or domestic), or (ii) TournamentCaddie is required to do so by applicable laws or regulations (foreign or domestic). Such withholding may be temporary or permanent (as determined by TournamentCaddie).
