Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third Party Accounts may be available on and through your Sportlane Account on the Services. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Sportlane’ access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content may no longer be available on and through the Services. You have the ability to configure certain portions of the connection between your Sportlane Account and your Third Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the "Profile" section of the Services.

You may not have more than one (1) active Sportlane Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete.

Sportlane performs regular backups on all servers to ensure critical files are never lost. However, Sportlane is NOT responsible for lost data, time, income or any other resource due to faulty backups or non-existent backups. Please always backup your own data for redundancy.
Sports Program Providers may create Listings. To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Sports Program to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, itinerary, features, availability, and target audience of the Sports Program and pricing and related rules and financial terms. Listings will be made publicly available via the Services. Other Members will be able to book your Sports Program via the Services based upon the information provided in your Listing.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or Participant taking of, a Sports Program in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties (such as any agreements with or rules of employers or local agencies) and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Sports Program included in a Listing you post, including, but not limited to, tourism, tour guide licensing laws, educational laws, and other laws governing events and programs of public spaces and other venues and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Sportlane assumes no responsibility for any Sports Program Provider’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. Sportlane reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Sportlane, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Services.
You understand and agree that Sportlane does not act as an insurer, only as an agent for Sports Program Providers. If a Participant requests a booking of your Sports Programs and participates in your Sports Programs, any agreement you enter into with such Participant is between you and the Participant. You acknowledge and agree that Sportlane is a party to the agreement only as the agent. When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements, which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your Sports Programs. Any Member wishing to book Sports Programs included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements.
If you are a Sports Program Provider, Sportlane may make certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking for your Sports Program. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Sports Program Provider, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who are present during the Sports Program at your request or invitation, excluding the Participant. Sportlane recommends that Sports Program Providers obtain appropriate insurance for their Sports Programs. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Sports Program carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Participants while participating in your Sports Program.
Sportlane does not endorse any Members or any Sports Program Providers. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Services. We will not be responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members. By using the Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Sportlane with respect to such actions or omissions.
If you are a SPP and a booking is requested for your Sport Program via the Services, either you or Sportlane acting as the SPP's agent, will be required to either confirm or reject the booking, using your internal reservation system or staff, within the specified timeframe (which is generally within 24-48 hours of when the booking is requested, as determined by Sportlane in its sole discretion) or the booking request may be automatically canceled. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a booking of a Sports Program within the specified timeframe, any amounts collected by Sportlane for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Participant’s credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. When a booking is requested via the Services, we may share with you the first name, last name, age, sports qualification and contact email address of the Participant who has requested the booking.
The deposit displayed on the booking page is generally based on the SPP’s terms as outlined on the booking page. Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Sports Program Cost. The Sports Program Cost and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the "Total Cost". The amounts due and payable by a Participant solely relating to an SPP's Sports Program are the "Sports Program Cost". The Sports Program Cost includes the costs of applicable extra services that might be booked by the Participant for a separate fee. The list of extra services the SPP may additionally provide to the Participants for a separate fee includes but not limited to: transfer from the airport (train station, etc.) to the academy or place of the residence and (or) vice-versa; English language classes; individual (1:1) coaching training; additional accommodation options; cancellation insurance; a one-time compulsory registration/administration fee; others.
Please note that it is the SPP and not Sportlane which determines the Sports Program Cost. Sportlane will collect the deposit and/or the Total Cost at the time of booking confirmation (i.e. when the SPP confirms the booking within the specified timeframe) acting on behalf of the SPP. The Balance of Payment (defined as the Total Cost minus the deposit) will be payable based on the Payment Terms as stated by the SPP on the booking page. SPP understands and agree that once a Participant has received a booking confirmation number, the price for such booking may not be altered.
The SPP hereby appoints Sportlane as the SPP's agent to facilitate the booking of Sports Program. The SPP will make the Sports Program available to Participant in the agreed-upon manner as described in their Listing. In accepting appointment as the authorized agent of the SPP, Sportlane assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the SPP. You acknowledge and agree that Sportlane reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to introduce and collect other fees from you in accordance with the Modification Section of these Terms. Please note that Sportlane will provide notice of new fees via the Services, prior to implementing such new features.
If the Participant came through our site and then paid the SPP directly, we expect this SPP to share the booking details with Sportlane immediately.
Once we receive the details from the SPP, we add them to our system and send the SPP an invoice for our Service Fees. All invoices are sent out 40 days before the guest's arrival date and are to be paid 30 days before the arrival date (10 days net).
If an invoice is not paid within 10 days after the SPP receives it, a late payment fee of 5% of the total invoice amount will have to be charged. If an invoice still isn’t paid 30 days after you receive it, the late fee will be 10%.
Whenever possible, we try to minimize transactions by matching outstanding commission invoices with upcoming payouts. This saves transaction fees for the SPP.
We greatly appreciate those SPPs who let us know of any bookings from guests we brought you. This is part of the honor system we work on. When SPPs proactively tell us about bookings, we take notice! Outside of the honor system, we track and monitor inquiries. We’ll reach out once a month to see who booked. If we find out that an SPP is trying to hide a booking from us, we’ll, unfortunately, have to ban them from our site.
We work hard to bring customers to all of our partners. No doubt you’d feel a break in trust if the roles were reversed and we tried to hide a booking from you.
If the SPP lists its Sports Program on Sportlane site, they are not allowed to list it for a lower price elsewhere. By listing a Sports Program here, the SPPs are stating and agree that they do not offer this Sports Program for a lower price elsewhere. Why do we have this clause?
Because we work extremely hard here at Sportlane to help bring you customers. We’ve set up a situation in which we give you $10 if you give us $1. We think you’d have to agree that it’s a great deal for any business, no?
But listing a Sports Program on our site, and then selling it for a lower price elsewhere impedes our ability to provide this wonderful service to you. It undermines the trust our visitors place in us, and you.
We’re here as a family, and part of being a family is recognizing the contributions of every member. We wouldn’t be here without you, and we’re here to help your business thrive.
The Sports Program Providers, not Sportlane, are solely responsible for honouring any confirmed bookings and making available any Sports Programs reserved through the Services. You acknowledge that the availability and price of a Sports Program can change any time until you have received a booking confirmation number. If you, as a Participant, choose to enter into a transaction with a SPP for the booking of a Sports Program, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement (including releases) with the SPP and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Sports Program imposed by the SPP. You acknowledge and agree that Sportlane is a party to the agreement only as the agent to the SPP. With the exception of its obligations hereunder, Sportlane disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. Any Deposit or Balance of Payment is due as stated within the SPP’s terms contained in the Booking Page.
The Booking Page for a Sports Program will specify the Total Cost. As noted above the SPP is required to either confirm or reject the booking within the specified timeframe (which is generally within 24-48 hours of when the booking is requested, as determined by Sportlane in its sole discretion) or the requested booking will be automatically cancelled. If a requested booking is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable SPP), any amounts collected by Sportlane will be refunded to such Participant, depending on the selections the Participant makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Participant's credit card will be released, if applicable.
You agree to pay Sportlane acting on behalf of the SPP for the Total Cost for any booking requested in connection with your Sportlane Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable SPP. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable SPP's confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that Sportlane reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for either the Deposit or Total Cost or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one Dollar (USD 1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting (e.g. one Euro or one British Pound) to verify your credit card. Once you receive confirmation of your booking from the applicable SPP, Sportlane will collect the Total Cost Payment in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing acting on behalf of the SPP. Please note that Sportlane cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Participant by his or her bank related to Sportlane’ collection of the Total Cost, and Sportlane disclaims all liability in this regard.
If you find a lower rate on another website by 23:59 local time the day before your Sports Program starts, inform us and we will do our best to get you that price. Our SPPs are not allowed to put a higher price on our site than they have listed elsewhere for the same Sports Program.
To submit a claim you need to write us at email@example.com by 23:59 local time the day before your Sports Program starts. If you’ve found a lower price, it has to be available for booking at the time you contact us. This is determined by our support team.
Sameness of the Sports Program - Our Best Price Guarantee is available only for exact itinerary matches, including the Sports Program, cancellation policy, and the date of travel as booked through Sportlane. Also, the sameness must be to the exact same Sports Program purchased on its own through another website. For example, if you book a Sports Program on another website as part of a special package it won’t be eligible for our Best Price Guarantee. Our Best Price Guarantee applies to the cost of a booked Sports Program, as presented on your booking confirmation receipt, including any taxes and fees collected by us from you at the time of your booking. The Best Price Guarantee does not apply to any taxes or fees collected by any third party from you. Our Best Price Guarantee isn’t available if you book a Sports Program on another website, and the price of that booking isn’t known until after your purchase. In addition, if there are requirements to be eligible for the lower price, including and without limitation: residency, regional and age, you must meet every single one of these requirements.
Lower price must be available to the general public - In order to be eligible for Our Best Price Guarantee, the prices must be both advertised and available to the general public. The following terms also apply for our Best Price Guarantee: the guarantee does not apply to rates offered on competitors' membership program websites; corporate discounts or rates; group, charter, rewards program, incentive, meeting, convention, consolidator or interline prices; prices obtained via auction or similar process; or prices available only by using a coupon or other promotion not offered to the general public. In addition, the lower price can’t come from a website where a call is required to get the rate, or from an e-mail that you received.
Verifying your claim - All claim requests are subject to verification by sportlane.com. We don’t accept screenshots or other purported evidence of a lower price that we at Sportlane can’t confirm independently. We will not verify any request that we believe, in our sole discretion, is the result of a printing or other error or is made fraudulently or in bad faith.
Getting your refund for a verified claim - If your request is verified, you will receive a credit to the credit card that you used for your reservation. Where you have paid for your Sports Program at the time of booking, we will send your refund upon verification of your request. Where you have chosen to pay later at the SPPs premises, you will pay the SPP the original price upon arrival and we will send your refund after you have completed your stay. Please be aware that it may take up to 30 days or the next billing cycle for your refund to appear on your credit card statement.
Right to change - We at sportlane.com reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify or discontinue the Best Price Guarantee or to restrict its availability to any person, at any time, for any or no reason, and without prior notice or liability to you. Your eligibility under the Best Price Guarantee is determined by the terms that are in effect at the time of your claim. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms & Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
In consideration for providing the Services, Sportlane collects a service fee only from the SPP ("Service Fees"). A Service Fees is made up of one (1) component: (i) a fee that is charged to the SPP based upon a percentage of the amount of the Sports Program Cost. For short-term Sports Programs with a duration of less than 30 (thirty) calendar days - an applicable percentage of the amount of the Sports Program Cost is 10%. For Sports Programs with duration of more than 30 (thirty) calendar days - Sportlane defines an applicable percentage of the amount of the Sports Program Cost upon the agreement reached between Sportlane and the SPP concerned. In such cases, we expect the SPP to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the terms of the agreement.
As it has been outlined earlier in this Terms, the Sports Program Cost may include the costs of applicable extra services that might be booked by the Participant for a separate fee. The list of extra services the SPP may additionally provide to the Participants for a separate fee includes but not limited to: transfer from the airport (train station, etc.) to the academy or place of the residence and (or) vice-versa; English language classes; individual (1:1) coaching training; additional accommodation options; cancellation insurance; a one-time compulsory registration/administration fee; others. Where it is the case, such extra services would be charged appropriately at an applicable rate as well.
For example, if a Participant books a short-term sports program (less than 30 days) along with an extra service “transfer from the airport to the academy” for a separate fee, - then the total amount (a sum) of the program’s cost itself and the costs of the extra service would be commissioned at an applicable 10% fee.
Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Service Fee.
If, as a Participant, you cancel your requested booking before the requested booking is confirmed by the SPP, Sportlane will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time. You agree to pay Sportlane for the Total Cost for any booking requested in connection with your Sportlane Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable SPP. Once your booking is confirmed by the applicable SPP, the total cost of your Sport Program is subject to the cancellation and payment terms of the SPP. This cancellation must be done via your booking conversation page. However, if you are advised that your booking is an 'on request' basis, then above rules do not apply. So if the request comes back approved you will be charged for the full amount. However, if the SPP cannot confirm your request you will receive a full refund.
If an SPP cancels a confirmed booking made via the Services, a refund of only the Sports Program Cost for such booking will be made to the applicable Participant within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Participant may receive an email or other communication from Sportlane containing alternative Listings and other related information. If the SPP canceled a confirmed booking and you, as a Participant, have not received an email or other communication from Sportlane, please contact Sportlane at email@example.com.
Certain Sports Programs may be weather-dependent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of inclement weather, the SPP has the discretion as to whether the weather conditions will prevent the Sports Program from taking place. As a SPP, if you need to cancel a Sports Program for reasons of inclement weather, you must contact the Participant and Sportlane (at firstname.lastname@example.org) as early as possible. Subject to the Participant’s consent, the SPP and the Participant may choose to reschedule the Sports Program for another date.
If the Sports Program cannot be rescheduled, as a Participant, please contact Sportlane so we may assist in finding a replacement, non-weather-dependent Sports Program. For clarity, in the event the alternative Sports Program is of a higher price than the former, you may be responsible for any difference in price. In the event the alternative Sports Program is of a lower price, you may be entitled to a partial refund for the difference.
As a Participant, if you have contacted Sportlane as provided above and Sportlane is unable to find you a replacement Sports Program, Sportlane may refund the deposit for such booking to the applicable Participant within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. Sportlane cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members of the Services. Additionally, please note that each SPP is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings.
As part of the Services, Sportlane may provide a feature through which Members may view Payment for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Payment are for informational purposes only and are not the official Payment for the Listings. If you (as a Participant) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Payment, if your booking is confirmed by a SPP. The currency in which you will be charged may be determined by Sportlane based on the payment method you select and the location of the Sports Program in the Listing you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the SPP to receive payment, Sportlane will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, not including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that Sportlane has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the "Applicable Exchange Rate"). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although Sportlane would update the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it would not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, Sportlane would retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for compliance with any and all laws, rules, regulations, and Tax obligations that may apply to your use of the Site, Application, Services and Content. In connection with your use of the Services, you may not and you agree that you will not:
