How the Site and Services Work
The Site and Services can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of Sports Tuition. Such Sports Tuition is included in Listings on the Site and Services by Instructors. You may view Listings as an unregistered visitor to the Site and Services; however, if you wish to book Sports Tuition, ask a question to an Instructor, or create a Listing, you must first register to create an upmysport Account (defined below).
As stated above, upmysport makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Attendees and Instructors to meet online and arrange for bookings of Sports Tuition. upmysport is not a provider of sports and fitness tuition, including, but not limited to, courses, lessons, classes, sessions or other tuition offerings, nor is it a provider of sports facilities, including, but not limited to, tennis courts, golf courses, squash courts, halls, gymnasiums, swimming pools or other leisure facilities and upmysport does not own, sell, re-sell, provide, rent, re-rent, manage and/or control sports equipment, including, but not limited to, rackets, clubs, skis, bats, balls and boats, nor does it provide transportation, lodging or other travel services. Similarly, upmysport is not a contracting agent or representative of any Instructor. Instead, upmysport’s role is solely to facilitate the availability of the Site and Services for Members and to provide services related thereto.
Please note that, as stated above, the Site and Services are intended to be used to facilitate the booking of Sports Tuition. upmysport does not control the Member content contained in any Listings and the condition, legality or suitability of any Sports Tuition. upmysport is not responsible for and disclaims any and all liability related to any and all Listings and Sports Tuition. Accordingly, any bookings will be made at the Member’s own risk.
In order to access certain features of the Site, and to book Sports Tuition or create a Listing, you must register to create an account ("upmysport Account") and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Site or as described in this section.
You can also register to join by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites (including, but not limited to Facebook and Twitter); each such account, a "Social Network Account", via our Site, as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site and Services, you may link your upmysport Account with Social Network Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Social Network Account login information to upmysport through the Site or Services; or (ii) allowing upmysport to access your Social Network Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Social Network Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Social Network Account login information to upmysport and/or grant upmysport access to your Social Network Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Social Network Account and without obligating upmysport to pay any fees or making upmysport subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers.
By granting upmysport access to any Social Network Accounts, you understand that upmysport will access, make available and store (if applicable) any text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, information or other materials that you have provided to and stored in your Social Network Account ("Social Network Content") so that it is available on and through the Site and Services via your upmysport Account and upmysport Account profile page. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all Social Network Content, if any, shall be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Social Network Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Social Network Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Social Network Accounts will be available on and through your upmysport Account on the Site and Services. Please note that if a Social Network Account or associated service becomes unavailable or upmysport’s access to such Social Network Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then Social Network Content will no longer be available on and through the Site and Services.
Please note that your relationship with the third party service providers associated with your Social Network Accounts is governed solely by your agreement(s) with such third party service providers.
upmysport makes no effort to review any Social Network Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and upmysport is not responsible for any Social Network Content.
We will create your upmysport Account and your upmysport Account profile page for your use of the Site based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via a Social Network as described above. You may not have more than one (1) active upmysport Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. upmysport reserves the right to suspend or terminate your upmysport Account and your access to the Site and Services if you create more than one (1) upmysport Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your upmysport Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify upmysport of any unauthorised use of your upmysport Account.
Sports Tuition Listings
As a Member, you may create Listings. To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Sports Tuition to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, duration, features, availability of the Sports Tuition and pricing and related rules and financial terms. In order to be featured in Listings via the Site and Services, you must provide your full name, telephone number and registered address. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Sports Tuition via the Site and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Attendee requests a booking of your Sports Tuition, the price for such booking may not be increased.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or Attendee attendance at, any Sports Tuition in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Sports Tuition included in a Listing you post, and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that upmysport assumes no responsibility for an Instructor’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations.
You understand and agree that upmysport does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for, or representative of, you as an Instructor, and if a Attendee requests a booking of your Listing and attends your Sports Tuition, any agreement you enter into with such Attendee is between you and the Attendee and upmysport is not a party thereto. Please note that upmysport reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that upmysport, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Site or Services.
If you are an Instructor, upmysport makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking for your Sports Tuition. You acknowledge and agree that, as an Instructor, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who instruct at or are otherwise present at the Sports Tuition at your request or invitation, excluding the Attendee (and the individuals the Attendee invites to join the Sports Tuition, if applicable.)
upmysport recommends that Instructors and Attendees obtain appropriate insurance for their Sports Tuition. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Sports Tuition carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Instructors and Attendees (and the individuals the Attendee invites to join the Sports Tuition, if applicable) while attending your Sports Tuition.
upmysport does not endorse any Members or any Sports Tuition. In addition, although these Terms require Members to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any Member’s purported identity (though our third party payment providers may do so) or whether they have the required or appropriate insurances, qualifications or experience to instruct or attend the Sports Tuition. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Site and Services. We will not be responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members. By using the Site or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from upmysport with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you.
Bookings and Financial Terms
If you are an Instructor and a booking is requested for your Sports Tuition via the Site and Services, you will be asked to either confirm or reject the booking or respond with suggested times for a booking within 48 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by upmysport in its sole discretion). When a booking is requested via the Site and Services, we will share with you (i) the name of the Attendee who has requested the booking and the names of any individuals the Attendee invites to join the Sports Tuition, if applicable (ii) a link to the Attendee’s upmysport Account profile page so that you can view such information before confirming or rejecting the booking, and (iii) a message from the Attendee, if applicable.
If you decide to reject a booking of Sports Tuition, any amounts collected for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Attendee’s credit or debit card or PayPal or GoCardless account and any pre-authorisation will be released.
If the booking request is for a private lesson, or if you are unable to respond to a Attendee within 48 hours of the booking request but you do decide to accept the booking after such period or you wish to have further correspondence with the Attendee, the Attendee will be required to re-accept the booking before the booking is confirmed.
When you and the Attendee have accepted a booking request, upmysport will send you an email or message via the Site confirming such booking.
If a booking is not confirmed within 30 days of the date when the booking request is first made, then the booking will be automatically cancelled and any amounts collected for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Attendee’s credit or debit card or paypal or GoCardless account and any pre-authorisation will be released.
The “Total Fees” displayed in each Listing are comprised of the Sports Tuition Fees (defined below) and the Service Fees (defined below). Note that it is the Instructor and not upmysport which determines the Total Fees. upmysport charges a fee to Instructors as a percentage of the applicable Total Fees to cover upmysport’s costs to maintain, develop the Site and Services and process any payments via the Site and Services plus any applicable Taxes (the "Service Fees"). Service Fees are non-refundable.
At the time of a booking request, upmysport or its third party payment provider will obtain a pre-authorisation via the Attendee’s credit or debit card or via GoCardless or other payment method for the Total Fees or charge the Attendee a nominal amount. If the booking is confirmed, upmysport or its third party payment provider will collect the Total Fees prior to the Sports Tuition taking place and will remit the Total Fees less the Service Fees (the “Sports Tuition Fees”) to the Instructor in a commercially reasonable time of when the Attendee attends the first day of the Sports Tuition.
Balances may be remitted to Instructors via cheque, PayPal, GoCardless, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site. Please note that for any payments by upmysport in currencies other than British pounds, upmysport may deduct foreign currency processing costs from such payments. More information on foreign currency processing cost deductions will be available via the Site.
Please note that upmysport does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you acknowledge and agree that upmysport reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that upmysport will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.
The Instructors, not upmysport, are solely responsible for honouring any confirmed bookings and making available any Sports Tuition reserved through the Site and Services. If you, as a Attendee, choose to enter into a transaction with an Instructor for the booking of Sports Tuition, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Instructor and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Sports Tuition imposed by the Instructor. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not upmysport, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, and upmysport is not a party to such agreements and disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
Listings for Sports Tuition will specify the Total Fees. As noted above, the Instructor is asked to either confirm or reject the booking within 48 hours of when the booking is requested or the requested booking will require you as a Attendee to re-confirm the booking for it to proceed. If a requested booking is rejected or cancelled by the applicable Instructor, any amounts collected by upmysport will be refunded to you, and any pre-authorisation will be released, if applicable.
You agree to pay upmysport for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your upmysport Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable Instructor. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Instructor’s confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that upmysport reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorisation via your credit or debit card or via GoCardless or other payment method for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit or debit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one British pound (£1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting (e.g. one euro or one US dollar) to verify your credit card. Once upmysport receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Instructor, upmysport may collect the Total Fees from the time the booking is confirmed in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that upmysport cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Attendee by his or her bank related to upmysport’s collection of the Total Fees, and upmysport disclaims all liability in this regard.
In consideration for providing the Services, upmysport collects Service Fees. Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Service Fees. Service Fees are deducted from the Total Fees before remitting the Sports Tuition Fees to the Instructor after the Sports Tuition commences.

If the Total Fees have been transferred to the Instructor in accordance with the payment schedule and cancellation policy, upmysport is not responsible for allocating refunds to the Attendee and the Attendee should contact the Instructor directly either via upmysport or via the contact details provided for the Instructor to arrange a refund or alternative date for the Sports Tuition.
An Instructor may cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site and Services and offer an alternative date or time for the Listing to the Attendee. If the Attendee accepts the alternative date and time for the Listing within a period of 48 hours of receiving the cancellation notification, then the Attendee agrees to pay the Total Fees relating to the confirmed booking for the Sports Tuition in the alternative booking, in accordance with these Terms. Service Fees are non-refundable.

Limitation of Liability
You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Site, Services and Site Content, and your listing or booking of any Sports Tuition via the Site and Services remains with you. Neither upmysport nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Site, Services or Site Content be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with these Terms, from the use of or inability to use the Site, Services or Site Content, from any communications, interactions or meetings with other users of the Site or Services or other persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the Site, Services, or from your listing or booking of any Sports Tuition via the Site and Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not upmysport has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
In no event will upmysport’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms and your use of the Site and Services including, but not limited to, from your listing or booking of any Sports Tuition via the Site and Services, or from the use of or inability to use the Site, Services, or Site Content and in connection with any Sports Tuition or interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the Site and Services as a Attendee in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are an Instructor, the amounts paid by upmysport to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred british pounds (£100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of England and Wales, without regard to any conflict of law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and upmysport agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and upmysport are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a claimant or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and upmysport otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the appointment of a single arbitrator to be agreed between the parties, or failing agreement within fourteen days, after either party has given to the other a written request to concur in the appointment of an arbitrator, by an arbitrator to be appointed by the President or a Vice President of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the International Chamber of Commerce Rules then in effect and shall take place in London, UK.
The failure of upmysport to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of upmysport. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
