The early birdie assumes no responsibility for independently verifying this information and specifically disclaims any and all liability, direct or indirect, for inaccuracies, exaggeration, or misstatements provided by the merchant/vendor.

   * Terms of Sale

  1. Every Deal is offered subject to its own terms and conditions. For example, a deal for greens fees may require that you schedule your tee time in advance or that it is only valid for play on certain days, at certain times, and by a certain date. Additionally, greens fees (tee times) will be subject to availability, weather conditions, rain check policies of the merchant/vendor and other policies of the merchant/vendor.  All these limitations may or may not be clearly stated on the website and are part of your agreement to purchase the Deal.  
2. The merchant/vendor is the seller of the goods and services purchased through the website and is solely responsible for providing the goods or services purchased. The name of the merchant/vendor will be clearly stated in the details provided for each Deal.  

 3. Many Deals also state an expiration date. These expirations may be subject to legal restrictions within individual states. Depending on your state law, your purchase may not expire on the date as stated on the website. If your state prohibits such an expiration and in the event that you do not redeem your Deal by the expiration date, you are entitled only to a credit from the merchant/vendor (not the early birdie) in the amount you spent on the purchase. For example, if you paid $30 for two greens fees with a stated value of $60, you are entitled to a credit of $30 from the merchant/vendor after the expiration date, not the stated $60 value.
 4.  In no event is the merchant/vendor under any obligation to provide the benefits of the Deal after the expiration date as stated. If required by state law, the maximum credit available from the merchant/vendor after the expiration is the amount you paid.
 5. Additionally, at the discretion of the merchant/vendor your credit is only valid towards like-kind purchases. So if your Deal was for greens fees, you may use your credit only for greens fees. Your credit would not be available for merchandise or meals.  
6. Your purchase of the early birdie Deal has no cash value. Unless required by state law, it may only be redeemed for the merchandise or service as stated in the offer. It may not be combined with any other coupon, promotion, or gift certificate. No cash back will be issued under any circumstances.  

 7. Your Deal may not be redeemed incrementally. If you purchased two greens fees for $30, you cannot play on two different days or times for $15 each, but instead, two of you must play in the same foursome.

   * Modification of this Agreement
The early birdie reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time with or without notice to you. Any such change in terms and conditions will be effective immediately upon their publication on the website. However, the terms and conditions in effect at the time of a purchase will govern our agreement.

   * Termination
The early birdie may change or discontinue its website at any time without prior notice and for any reason without further liability to you.
