ABOUT GOLFNET AND THE NETWORK
GN is a provider of technology-enabled solutions for communications, marketing, and commerce to golf course owners and other key stakeholders in the golf industry. The company is dedicated to increase participation and enjoyment of the game for all golfers regardless of age, race, sex, skill level, location, and type of club affiliation. GN is the sole owner and operator of the Network, a Web-based system that connects golfers with golf courses, clubs, PGA / CPGA professionals, leagues, tournaments, media, associations, and other golf organizations. The Network was developed in collaboration with course owners and managers, club owners and managers, PGA / CPGA professionals, tournament and league managers, and other key industry stakeholders to increase revenues and decrease costs for such businesses while significantly improving the accessibility, functionality, and integrity of the USGA / RCGA Handicap System.

HANDICAPS AND YOUR CLUB�S COMPLIANCE WITH THE USGA / RCGA
Many golfers are confused over how to get a USGA Handicap Index� / RCGA Handicap Factor�. The only way any golfer can get a USGA Handicap Index� / RCGA Handicap Factor� is to join a golf club or golf association that is recognized by the USGA / RCGA. Like the USGA / RCGA, the Network cannot and does not issue Handicap Index� / RCGA Handicap Factor� directly to golfers. Therefore, your club is solely responsible for remaining in compliance and good standing under the Rules of Golf and the USGA Handicap System / RCGA Handicap System for it to properly and appropriately issue a USGA Handicap Index� / RCGA Handicap Factor�. By accepting this agreement, you acknowledge and understand that if your club fails to follow all of the procedures of the Rules of Golf and the USGA Handicap System / RCGA Handicap System, the USGA / RCGA may not permit it to use any part of the USGA Handicap System / RCGA Handicap System nor to refer to the handicap it issues or certifies for you as a �USGA Handicap Index�� / "RCGA Handicap Factor�." GN recognizes and supports the position of the USGA / RCGA as the governing body of golf in United States / Canada respectively as well as the governing body for handicapping standards in the United States / Canada GN through the Network adheres carefully to all USGA / RCGA published guidelines as published in the USGA Handicap System / RCGA Handicap System manual as well as its related Decisions on the handicap system. Moreover, the Network seeks to support every golf club�s efforts to promote the integrity and compliance with the Rules of Golf and USGA Handicap System / RCGA Handicap System, rules, formulas and standards for peer review. The Network system includes excellent tools to assist golf club handicap committees in observing and enforcing the USGA Handicap System / RCGA Handicap System. Such compliance is essential to enabling clubs to issue USGA Handicap Index� / RCGA Handicap Factors�, recognized and accepted nation-wide. However, you agree that you cannot hold GN or the Network responsible or liable for any reason for loss of scores or information you enter, incorrect USGA Handicap Index� / RCGA Handicap Factor� calculations, incorrect slope or course ratings, incorrect information or profiles, lost winnings, lost earnings or compensation, or personal inconveniences any damages (financial or otherwise) due to but not limited to system failures or interruptions, club failures or errors, unwillingness of any entity to accept or recognize an USGA Handicap Index� / RCGA Handicap Factor� calculation, security breaches, intellectual property infringement, acts of nature, system outage, human error, or unauthorized use or access of the Network system or records.
