Our Site is not intended for children under 13. If you are 13 or over, but are under the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you live (typically 18), you must have your parent or legal guardian’s permission to use our Site, register or participate in any promotional offers. Certain features or functions of the Site may have additional age requirements or restrictions. By using or attempt to use our Site you certify that you are 13 years of age or older and, if under the age of majority, you have your parent or legal guardian’s permission to use our Site, register or participate in promotional offers.
Promotional Offers. Through the Site, we may provide you with access to certain promotional offers, classifieds or other games or contests, provided by us or a third party participating on our Site (each a “promotional offer”) which relate to certain events, products and/or services. We will always make every effort to provide you with any additional terms and conditions or rules associated with any promotional offer. If you participate in a promotional offer through the Site, you may be presented with certain coupons, confirmations or other indicia related to the particular promotional offer which may relate to a discount on certain events, products or services or some other benefit (each, a “confirmation”). Our Site has a finite, and therefore limited, capacity and some confirmations and/or responses to your communications in relation to promotional offers may not be processed in a timely fashion. You acknowledge and agree we assume no liability, responsibility or obligation to transmit, process, store, receive or deliver any confirmations or other communications regarding promotional offers or for any failure, inaccuracy or delay in such receipt or delivery.

We take no responsibility for any promotional offer, confirmations, or the events, products and/or services for which a confirmation may be redeemed including, without limitation, one of our member courses and/or any third party’s failure to, wholly or in part, honor any promotional offer or redeem any confirmation. We make no warranty to any user with respect to the quality, safety, usability, or other aspect of the event, product and/or service for which the confirmation may be redeemed or otherwise related to a promotional offer. The party extending the promotional offer sells and/or provides the event, products and/or services relating to a promotional offer and, as between us and such party, is solely responsible with respect to such events, products and/or services. So, if you have a customer service issue relating to an event, product and/or service obtained in connection with a promotional offer, you must contact the party extending the promotional offer. Some promotional offers may provide a discount for services or activities that involve a potential risk of bodily harm. For such services or activities, we assume no responsibility and, as between you and us, you hereby accept full risk and responsibility for your own actions in utilizing the products and/or services and/or participating in the events for which the promotional offer can be redeemed.
