Athletes Connect is an online service (the “AC Service”) operated by the BAC that allows Partners to offer to Athletes the opportunity to attend events held by Partners, on terms and conditions to be agreed solely between the Partner and the Athletes. Except as expressly described herein the BAC accepts no liability for use of the AC Service by any Partner.
In connection with using or accessing the AC Service you will not breach or circumvent any laws, third-party rights or our systems or policies or fail to pay for the appearance of Athletes unless you have a valid reason as set out in an agreement with the Athlete.
If we believe you are offering to enter into an agreement with an Athlete outside of Athletes Connect your use of the AC Service may be suspended and you will be liable for all fees payable in consideration for the introduction to the Athlete through the AC Service, even if the event does not take place.
We reserve the right to vary or terminate all or part of the AC Service and/or not provide all or part of the AC Service to anyone for any reason and/or period of time, at our discretion.
We charge the Partner 10% for each introduction made to an Athlete that leads to an agreement by the Athlete to participate in the event hosted by the Partner. We may change our fees, or introduce new fees from time to time by posting the changes 30 days in advance.
Partners are liable to pay the fee for each event involving an Athlete at the time the Athlete is booked. An invoice shall be issued to the Partner upon request. Failure to pay the fee within 10 business days of booking the Athlete may lead to the Partner being removed from the site.
You shall process personal data received using the AC Service as a separate and independent data controller. You shall be individually and separately responsible for complying with the obligations that apply to you as a controller under applicable data protection laws, including but not limited to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (EU General Data Protection Regulation “GDPR”) and supplementing EU and local data protection laws.
You shall process personal data exclusively for the purpose(s) you received the personal data. You shall erase the personal data received immediately after the respective purpose(s) has/have been fulfilled. Any further processing of the personal data is not permitted except when legally required (e.g. if a retention obligation applies).
You agree to ensure adequate safeguarding arrangements in respect of Athletes that are vulnerable due to mental or physical disability as well as Athletes who are minors. You further agree to apply safeguarding best practices and recommendations as promulgated by all recognised national sporting federations.
We try to keep Athletes Connect secure and functioning properly, but we cannot guarantee the continuous operation of or access to our service. The BAC (including our affiliates, directors, agents and employees) shall not be liable to you in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise for any business losses, such as loss of data, profits, revenue, business, opportunity, goodwill, reputation or business interruption or for any losses which are not reasonably foreseeable by us arising, directly or indirectly from your use of or your inability to use our service.
Nothing in the previous paragraph shall limit or exclude our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or the negligence of our agents or employees, or for any other liability that cannot be limited or excluded by law.
If any provision of these terms of service are held to be invalid, void or for any reason unenforceable, such provision shall be struck out and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We do not guarantee we will take action against all breaches of our terms of service.
If you have a dispute with one or more Athletes, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
