Except where prohibited by applicable law, these Service Terms and any other applicable terms and notices shall be governed by the laws of Finland. In case you are a US resident the following paragraph shall apply:
All matters relating to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1 et. seq.). Any and all claims, except claims for monies due to CADDIEON®, arising out of or relating to the purchase of products, content or services by you shall be barred unless an action or legal proceeding is commenced within eighteen (18) months after the date you or CADDIEON® knew or should have known of the facts giving rise to such claim. Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to this site, or your content, product or service order from this Service, shall be submitted (together with any counterclaims and disputes under or in connection with other transactions and/or agreements between you and CADDIEON®) to final and binding, confidential arbitration to the Dallas, Texas office of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), with such arbitration to be held in Dallas County, Texas, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate any CADDIEON® or CADDIEON® affiliates’ or licensors’ intellectual property rights, CADDIEON® may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the state of Texas or, at CADDIEON®’s option, any other appropriate state or country, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such court. Arbitration under these Service Terms shall be conducted under the then prevailing Wireless Arbitration Rules of the AAA (except as such rules may be modified by the terms of these Service Terms), unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, and shall be heard by a single arbitrator. The Parties further agree that, in connection with any such arbitration proceeding, each Party shall submit or file any claim which would constitute a compulsory counterclaim (as defined by Rule 13 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure) within the same proceeding as the claim to which it relates. Any such claim which is not submitted or filed in such proceeding shall be barred. Subject to any terms contained in these Service Terms limiting or excluding damages, the arbitrator may award any relief that the arbitrator deems proper, including without limitation equitable relief, provided that no award of exemplary, special, consequential or punitive damages shall be permitted. The prevailing party, as determined by the arbitrator, shall pay the AAA arbitration fees and the arbitrator’s fees and expenses, as applicable. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the arbitration shall be conducted on an individual, not a classwide basis, and no arbitration under these Service Terms shall be consolidated with or joined to an arbitration involving any other person or entity, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise, without the prior written consent of you and CADDIEON®.

The Service utilizes location information derived from multiple sources (e.g. GPS) to visualize the rounds you have played and determine the location of your mobile device (“your location”).

Your location can be shown to other parties freely without revealing your identity.
Your name, user name, weight, height, gender, age and email address will be stored by the Company. Your weight, height, age and gender are asked for enabling the estimation of the energy consumption in the golf round and for providing relevant anonymous performance comparison reference information and you may opt not to provide that information. The golf rounds you have published and shared in the Service will be available for others in the Service as long as you have deleted those or made them private. If you decide to make your golfing data public, you agree that CADDIEON may display the golf rounds on our websites and on the CADDIEON’s collaborating parties’ websites without separate permission from you.
We collect or ask for information relating to your purchase and/or use of our products and/or services and your other interactions with us. Such information may include, for example, details of the queries or requests you have made, the products and services provided (including delivery details), financial details (including payments made, credit card details, billing address, credit checks and other such financial information), details of agreements between you and CADDIEON, records of contacts and communications, information and details relating to the content you have provided us with and other such transactional information.
For the most part, you may visit our websites or use our products or services without having to tell us who you are. However, certain technical information is normally collected as a standard part of your use of our services. Such information includes, for example, your IP-address, access times, the website you linked from, pages you visit, the links you use, the adbanners and other content you viewed, information about your devices and other such technical information your browser provides us with or as may be otherwise collected in connection with certain products and services. When you use our services or otherwise interact with us over telecommunications networks, certain additional information, such as your mobile subscription number, may be transmitted to us by the telecommunications operator as a standard part of that communication.
We will store your personal data and other information that you provide to us through the Service or otherwise in our website for so long as you are a registered in the Service. After you cease to be a registered in the Service we will keep your information on our records for a limited period of time to enable us to respond to any queries that you may have. After this we will delete all of your information from our records, apart from any data that we are required to keep for legal purposes.
THE PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Your personal data may be processed for following purposes and to the extent necessary for that purpose: i) performance of the agreement or fulfillment of your request; ii) to ensure the security of the Service iii) development and improvement of our products and services; iv) communicating with you; v) personalizing our offering, for example to make recommendations and to display customized content and advertising on our website; vi) creation of statistical information; vii) compliance with mandatory legal requirements and/or in connection with law enforcement or other civil or criminal legal proceedings.
We may use your personal data to communicate with you, for example, to provide information relating to our products and/or services you are using or to contact you for customer satisfaction queries. We may use your personal data for marketing or research purposes, for example, to conduct market research and we may, in accordance with applicable law, contact you to inform you of new products, services or promotions we may offer. Also, some of our products and services may be used to promote products and services of other companies. However, CADDIEON does not disclose your personal data to such companies or any other company for marketing purposes without your prior consent.
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We do not sell, lease, rent or otherwise disclose your personal data to unauthorized third parties without your explicit consent unless expressly otherwise stated below.
We may share your personal data if we have your consent to do so. Our Service may include sharing your personal data with other users of the service, for example where users publish their own content.
Our services may be provided using resources locating in various countries around the world. Therefore your personal data may be transferred across international borders outside the country where you use our Services, including to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) that do not have laws providing specific protection for personal data or that have different legal rules on data protection, for example, the United States of America. In such cases we take steps to ensure that there is a legal basis for such a transfer and that adequate protection for your personal data is provided as required by applicable law, for example, by using standard agreements approved by relevant authorities (where necessary) and by requiring the use of other appropriate technical and organizational information security measures.
We may be obligated by mandatory legislation to disclose your personal data to certain authorities, such as law enforcement agencies. We may also process your personal data in case needed to defend our legitimate interests in civil or criminal legal proceedings.
In the event that CADDIEON is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, or we transfer the Service to a third party, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign your personal data and other information we have collected from you as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, transfer or other change of control.
COLLECTING THE DATA OF MINORS
CADDIEON does not seek to collect any information from or engage in any transactions with persons under the age of 13. Our databases may nevertheless contain personal data of children under 13 due to the fact that it is not always possible to determine precisely the age of the user. Insofar as we ask you to provide your age, we block the service from any person who is under 13 years of age. We will also make reasonable efforts to clear our databases of personal data relating to under age users.
CADDIEON’s policy is to request that minors (the legal age of majority and therefore the age of minors is determined by local law where you reside) do not make purchases or engage in other legal acts on our products and services without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, unless otherwise permitted by applicable law.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We recognize our responsibility to protect the personal data and other information you have provide us. We take appropriate technical and organizational information security measures to safeguard your personal data against loss and misuse, as well as unauthorized access. However we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with personal data and we cannot be held liable for any unauthorized access or use of the data you have supplied to us.
Our services or products may contain links to other websites and other third party services that have privacy policies of their own. We have no control over, do not review, and cannot be responsible for these third party websites or their content.
In case you wish to know what personal data we hold about you or you wish to replenish, rectify, anonymize or delete any incomplete, incorrect or outdated personal data, or you wish us to cease processing your personal data for the purpose of sending promotional materials or direct marketing or for the performance of market research or on other compelling legal grounds, you may, as appropriate and in accordance with applicable law, exercise such rights by contacting us through the contact points referred to below. In some cases, especially if you wish us to delete or cease the processing of your personal data, this may also mean that we may not be able to continue to provide the Service to you. We encourage you to use available profile management tools for the above purposes as such tools often provide you with direct access to your personal data and allow you to effectively manage it.
Please note that CADDIEON may need to identify you and to ask for additional information in order to be able to fulfill your above request. Please also note that applicable law may contain restrictions and other provisions that relate to your above rights.
