HOW WE USE YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION
INFORMATION ON PROVIDERS, SERVICES, EVENTS, CLUBS AND VENUES
The USTA facilitates transactions between you and Providers, Clubs and Venues for tennis events and resources using the Serve Tennis Tool. Information on this site is provided by Providers, Clubs or Venues in order to supply you with services. If you make a Booking or Purchase, you will enter into a contract with the relevant Provider, Venue, or Club. The USTA will facilitate that transaction by means of the Serve Tennis Tools, but is not itself a party to that contract and the payment terms are between you and the Provider, Venue or Club. Additionally, each provider, venue or club has terms of service that will apply to each transaction. You should refer to the relevant Information Page and applicable provider, venue or club terms for services, events, bookings or purchase before concluding any transaction.
As the information is provided by the Providers, Clubs or Venues, the USTA can make no representation and gives no assurance as to accuracy of information presented by Providers, Clubs or Venues via the site.
Where the booking, service or purchase requires payment, the total charged assessed will include a transaction fee. Payment will be made to the provider of the applicable service. The transaction fee is a separate charge assessed by the USTA and payment processing providers.
CANCELLATION AND REFUNDS
The USTA tries to ensure that all prices on the site are accurate, errors may occur. If the USTA discovers an error in the price of the services, resources, events memberships or products, the USTA will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price (and credit or debit your account as applicable) or cancelling your purchase. If the USTA is unable to contact you, you agree that the USTA may treat the purchase as cancelled. If you choose to cancel after you have already paid the incorrect price for the purchase, you will receive a full refund from the USTA.
If you wish to cancel your Booking or Purchase, you must cancel the Booking or Purchase by contacting the Provider, Club or Venue directly within the number of days stipulated by the Provider, Club or Venue’s refund policy and in accordance with that refund policy. If refunded, you will be refunded the full costs of the Provider services, Resource Booking, Event & Service or Membership services purchased from the payment provider where applicable.
