Welcome to the Callaway Golf Company ("Callaway") uxplore website (sometimes referred to as the "Site"). Like the game of golf, this Site has certain rules that you must follow which we call our "Terms of Service". Please read the Terms of Service carefully. Most of all, have fun while you discover Callaway's uxplore website.
Who We Are: When we refer to "Callaway Golf," "Callaway," "we," "our" or "us," it means Callaway Golf Company and its subsidiaries. Callaway Golf Company's headquarters are located at 2180 Rutherford Road, Carlsbad, California 92008, USA. The telephone number is (760) 931-1771. Currently, Callaway Golf has subsidiaries in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, Malaysia, India and Australia. In addition to the Callaway Golf® brand of products, Callaway Golf's brands include, among others, Odyssey® and upro®. Unless otherwise noted, these Terms of Service are for the uxplore site associated with our upro golf gps rangefinders and for other sites, devices, and services on which these Terms of Service may be found. Purchase of a Callaway upro device is not required to use the uxplore site.

IF YOU CONNECT TO THE UXPLORE SITE, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO THE TRANSMITTAL OF YOUR INFORMATION OUTSIDE EUROPE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PRIVACY NOTICE.
B. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service please do not use the Service.

The license is terminable according to these Terms of Service.
C.

Callaway may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise these Terms of Service at any time and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions when they occur.
D.Callaway may choose to suspend support of any Callaway upro product previously offered and designed to operate through the Site. Nothing in these Terms of Service shall be deemed to confer any right to require continued support of such products, including but not limited to course features for a particular golf course.

You understand and agree that your participation in the Beta Program is voluntary and does not create a legal partnership, agency, or employment relationship between you and Callaway, and that Callaway is not obligated to provide you with any Beta Features. Callaway may make such Beta Features available to Beta Program participants by online registration or enrollment via the Service. You understand and agree that Callaway may collect and use certain information from your account, devices and peripherals in order to enroll you in a Beta Program and/or determine your eligibility to participate. You understand that once you enroll in a Beta Program you may be unable to revert back to the earlier non-beta version of a given Beta Feature. In the event such reversion is possible, you may not be able to migrate data created within the Beta Feature back to the earlier non-beta version. Your use of the Beta Features and participation in the Beta Program is governed by these Terms of Service and any additional license terms that may separately accompany the Beta Features. The Beta Features are provided on an "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" basis and may contain errors or inaccuracies that could cause failures, corruption or loss of data and/or information from your device and from peripherals (including, without limitation, servers and computers) connected thereto. Callaway strongly encourages you to back-up all data and information on your device and any peripherals prior to participating in any Beta Program. You expressly acknowledge and agree that all use of the Beta Features is at your sole risk. YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION IN ANY BETA PROGRAM, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY INTERNET ACCESS FEES, BACK-UP EXPENSES, COSTS INCURRED FOR THE USE OF YOUR DEVICE AND PERIPHERALS, AND ANY DAMAGE TO ANY EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, INFORMATION OR DATA.

You agree to abide by any support rules or policies that Callaway provides to you in order to receive any such support. Callaway reserves the right to modify the terms, conditions or policies of the Beta Program (including ceasing the Beta Program) at any time with or without notice, and may revoke your participation in the Beta Program at any time. You acknowledge that Callaway has no obligation to provide a commercial version of the Beta Features, and that should such a commercial version be made available, it may have features or functionality different than that contained in the Beta Features. As part of the Beta Program, Callaway may provide you with the opportunity to submit comments, suggestions, or other feedback regarding your use of the Beta Features. You agree that in the absence of a separate written agreement to the contrary, Callaway will be free to use any feedback you provide for any purpose, including endorsement of the Beta Features and the Beta Program.

Upon receipt of a completed and signed notice, if appropriate, Callaway will disable access to the allegedly infringing materials and will promptly notify the individual who posted the materials that access has been disabled. If your notification is unsigned or is not on our form and does not contain the authorization language of our form, Callaway will work with you to obtain a properly executed notification. If any of the other information is missing from your notification, however, Callaway will not be able to respond to your request.

Access will be restored between the tenth and fourteenth business day after Callaway receives a counter-notification unless you inform Callaway that you have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the individual who made the posting from engaging in infringing activity on our network and servers. If Callaway determines that it does not want to restore access to the materials, you will not receive any further notification.
The foregoing take-down obligation shall only apply to Content under Callaway's direct control, and shall not apply to Content residing on third party websites or websites linked to or accessed through the Services or Site; Callaway shall have no liability for any misuse of intellectual property rights occurring on such third party services or websites.
