Please read the Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Website or the App (collectively the “Platforms”). By using the Platforms, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy, found at www.boatyball.com, and incorporated herein by reference. If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, you must not access or use the Platforms.

Changes to the Terms of Use

We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them and apply to all access to and use of the Platform thereafter. Your continued use of the Platform following the posting of revised Terms of Use means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

Moorings

Unless otherwise noted, all moorings listed on the Platforms are maintained by “Moor Seacure Ltd.“  Moor Seacure Ltd. has installed and tested all moorings and found them to be suitable, safe overnight moorings for a single vessel with a maximum length of sixty (60) feet and a maximum weight of twenty (20) net tons.  Each mooring is inspected and maintained on a regular basis.  The moorings are not designed for storm conditions and if surface winds exceed forty (40) knots, all vessels must vacate their respective mooring immediately.  All users agree not to extend the length of the pennant and agree to use moorings at your own risk. Boaty Ball, LLC and Moore Seacure Ltd. will assume no responsibility for damage to vessels or personal injury resulting from the use of these moorings.
The map provided on the Platforms is designed for reference and planning purposes only.  It is not to be used for navigation and does not take the place of proper navigation charts.  Every boater is responsible for making sure they have the appropriate navigation charts for the areas in which they plan to boat.  We assume no liability for any loss or damage of any kind incurred from the use of the Site.

Fees and Payments

You are responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of any mooring ball reservation, the use of our Marketing Services (as defined below) or the use of the Platforms. You agree to pay to us all fees for (including any overage fees) for our provision of the Marketing Services, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for such Marketing Services on the Platforms. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through your User Account management page. Except as provided in these Terms of Use or when required by law, all fees paid by you are non-refundable. We may change the fees for any Marketing Services, including any Marketing Services billed pursuant to a Subscription (as defined below), at any time.

Subscriptions

In the event that any of the Marketing Services are billed on a Subscription basis (”Subscriptions”), you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period, a “Billing Cycle”). Billing Cycles are typically weekly, monthly or annual, depending on what Subscription you select when purchasing a Subscription. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each Billing Cycle unless you cancel auto-renewal through your User Account management page, or by contacting our customer support team at support@boatyball.com. While we will be sad to see you go, you may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription at any time, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of the then-current billing cycle before terminating. If we change the fees for any Marketing Services billed pursuant to a Subscription, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle. We will provide you with reasonable prior written notice of any change in fees to give you an opportunity to cancel your Subscription before the change becomes effective.

Taxes and Overage Fees

 In connection with facilitating your transaction, you authorize us or a third party vendor selected by us to and we or it will charge your credit card for the total reservation price, which includes the amount for the mooring balls, a fee retained by us for providing the Marketing Services, and all anticipated applicable taxes. We will retain a service fee as compensation for facilitating reservations and for providing Marketing Services. The amounts paid to the Licensors in connection with your reservation include all anticipated applicable taxes for the mooring balls. The Licensors are responsible for remitting applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. We do not collect or remit taxes to the applicable taxing authorities nor serve as a co-vendor associated with the vendor with whom we reserve its customer’s mooring balls. If you are required by law to withhold any taxes from your payments to us, you must provide us with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments. Nevertheless, such payments are your sole responsibility, and we are not responsible for ensuring payment of the same. Unless otherwise stated, any overage fees incurred by you will be billed in arrears on a monthly basis. Overage fees which remain unpaid for 30 days after being billed are considered overdue. Failure to pay overage fees when due may result in your access to the Platforms being limited, suspended, or terminated (subject to applicable legal requirements), which may result in a loss of your data associated with that service.

Notice Required

We are not required to collect, and do not collect Oklahoma, South Dakota and Vermont sales or use tax. Any purchase made is subject to Oklahoma, South Dakota and Vermont use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. The purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the internet, by catalog or other remote means. The States of Oklahoma, South Dakota and Vermont, require all resident purchasers to report all purchases that were not taxed and pay tax on those purchases. The tax may be reported and paid on the individual income tax return for each state or by filing a consumer use tax return. All use tax forms and corresponding instructions are available on the website of each state’s Department of Revenue: for Oklahoma, www.tax.ok.gov; for South Dakota, www.state.sd.us; and for Vermont, www.state.vt.us/tax, as they may change from time to time.

Cancellations and Refunds

Reservations purchased through the Platforms are fully refundable up to twenty four (24) hours before the start of the reservation unless noted otherwise. You can cancel a reservation for any reason before that time unless noted otherwise. Within twenty-four (24) hours of the start of the Reservation, all Reservations are non-refundable, regardless of your use or non-use of the reservation and regardless of any circumstance surrounding the use or non-use of a Reservation (i.e., boater traffic, mechanical issues, weather delays, cancellation of a related event).

We may from time to time partner with third parties (”Partner”), and reservations purchased on Partner websites are not refundable for any reason.

Promotional Marketing Incentives

From time to time we may issue promotional marketing incentives in the form of promotional codes, promotional discounts, coupon codes, Referral Credits (as defined below) or other marketing incentives (”Marketing Incentives”). The Marketing Incentives are given for no exchange of value or other consideration and you therefore have no ownership interests or rights in the Marketing Incentives. We reserve the right to deactivate any Marketing Incentive at any time and for any reason. Further, we reserve the right to terminate or discontinue any promotional program or other program offering Marketing Incentives at any time.

Referral Program

If you use our referral program (”Referral Program”) to recommend the Platforms to a potential new user (the “Referral”) about in exchange for the opportunity to earn promotional codes for Marketing Services (”Referral Promotional Codes”), we will ask you for the Referral’s name, email address and other information. We will automatically send the Referral a one-time email inviting the Referral to visit the Platforms. We store the Referral’s information for the purpose of sending this email and tracking the success of our referral program. You may only earn Referral promotional codes totaling up to $100 within any one-year period. Once you have reached the $100 limit (which limit may be increased or decreased at any time in our sole discretion), you will no longer receive promotional codes for any Referrals until one year after your first earned reward. We reserve the right to deactivate any Referral promotional codes at any time and for any reason. Referral promotional codes are given for no exchange of value or other consideration and are strictly promotional vouchers with no monetary value. Referral promotional codes must be redeemed by you or the Referral, as applicable, within eighteen (18) months after provided by to you or the Referral, as applicable, or they shall be forfeited. Further, we reserve the right to terminate or discontinue the Referral Program at any time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may administer the Referral Program itself or may use a third party service to fulfill referral promotions at its discretion. In the event that we use a third party service to administer our referral program, participation in such program shall be subject to the program terms and conditions provided through such third party service.

Reservation Rates

The rate for a Reservation made on the Platforms may not be combined with any additional coupons, special offers or other promotion when exiting a mooring field after using the mooring ball underlying a reservation. Special discounts do not apply.

Limited Scope of Service

Unless expressly stated otherwise, the services provided by us (”Marketing Services”) are limited to informing users of the location and potential availability of certain Mooring Balls and facilitating Reservations (as defined below) by displaying Mooring Balls, processing Reservations and collecting fees on behalf of Licensors (as defined below). Any fees and/or consideration paid to us is paid to us in connection with these Marketing Services unless otherwise indicated. To be clear, we do not: (i) negotiate terms of licenses or settle disputes between users of the Platforms; (ii) provide a mooring ball service; (iii) operate a mooring field or other marina facility; (iv) maintain mooring balls; (v) otherwise accept custody of boats; or (vi) provide services other than the Marketing Services (collectively, “Excluded Services”). The Excluded Services are provided by Licensors who are not agents, representatives, or employees of the Company and we have no responsibility whatsoever regarding the safety of persons or property in any mooring field or any other facility where the mooring fields are located through use of the Platforms. We are not responsible for any consequences arising from the Excluded Services, including, without limitation, consequences arising from not being able to moor or delays associated with mooring, damaged moorings, debris in the water, or unsafe weather conditions.  Although we do not guarantee the availability of a specific mooring, if a booked mooring is unavailable at your time of reservation, we will attempt to locate an alternate mooring, provide you with a refund and/or otherwise resolve any issues in accordance with our standard customer service practices.

Licensors; Licensor Terms and Conditions

We list the moorings on the Platforms to facilitate the reservation of mooring balls (“Reservation”) between users of the Platforms (“Licensees” or “you”), and the independent owners, marina owners, resort owners, restaurant owners, lessors, managers or operators of the mooring balls (the “Licensors”). We do not establish the prices for reservation of the mooring balls, operate mooring balls, or determine mooring availability, each of which is a responsibility of the Licensors. While we make every effort to provide accurate information regarding the mooring balls listed on the Site, at times such information may become inaccurate and we shall not be liable for any such inaccuracy; Licensors shall be wholly and exclusively liable for all such inaccuracies. In all cases, your utilization of a mooring ball will be governed by Licensor’s customer agreements or policies in place from time to time, including, without limitation, all terms and conditions related to the use of any mooring ball, any payment terms and conditions and all rules and restrictions imposed by the Licensor on the relevant mooring field and/or mooring ball, as each may be entered into or effected in accordance with the Licensor’s standard operating procedures (the “Licensor Terms and Conditions”).

By making a Reservation, you agree in all cases to abide by the Licensor Terms and Conditions. In connection with our provision of the Marketing Services, Licensors may represent and warrant to us that they have full authority to list the mooring balls for Reservations. We are not responsible for confirming whether any such representation or warranty is true and correct, nor are we responsible if any such representation or warranty becomes inaccurate or incomplete prior to your use of a mooring ball. In addition, we will never be responsible for any agreement or other arrangements between you and any Licensor, regardless of whether such agreement or other arrangements are related to your booking and use of a mooring through the Platforms.
