1.1. What these terms cover. These terms (the “Terms”) govern your use of the services offered by Puttshack Ltd (“Puttshack”, “we”, “us”, “our”) to users (“you”, “your”, “users”) at any of our venues, via our website and/or when using a console at one of our venues (a “Console”) and any associated applications or programs which Puttshack may release from time to time (the “Service”).

1.2. Why you should read them. You must read these Terms carefully and make sure that you understand them before registering as a Member with us. You agree that by clicking “Accept” at the foot of these terms, and/or registering a Player Account, that you are entering into a legally binding agreement with us. If you do not understand or do not accept any part of these Terms, then you must not accept them and should speak to a member of staff to ask them to clarify anything that you do not understand.

1.3. Your Player Account. By clicking “Accept” at the foot of these Terms you will be generating an electronic user account (a “Player Account”) with us that will endure after your first visit to our premises as a Member has ended and which will be used by you each time you visit our premises as a Member (each visit a “Session”). For more information on how the data that you may store within that account may be used, please see the ‘Your Account’ and ‘Data Protection’ sections below.

1.4. For the avoidance of doubt, by creating a Player Account with us and registering as a Member, you are agreeing to these Terms.
