You must take care when arranging to meet any user you meet through SportStarta. Tell a friend or family member where you are going, and only meet people you do not know in busy public places. Please report any unacceptable behaviour to us immediately via the "Report Abuse" option in the "Contact Us" section.

If you book a venue through SportStarta you may have to pay a deposit or the full charges for that booking and you will enter into a contract with that venue, club or facility; we are not party to any agreement between you and such persons and do not assume any responsibility or liability in respect of such agreement.

PARTNERS

However, where our partners arrange events your attendance at these events will be governed by their terms & conditions so do please check these. We feel it is reasonable for our partners to know who is signing up via their specific website and as such we may provide them with a register of users who signed up through them. Don't worry, this will only consist of your name and email and they aren't permitted to send you anything if you've not opted to let them get in touch.

UPDATED TERMS

We may revise these T&Cs at any time by:?
Uploading replacement terms to the App;
Making replacement terms available on the Site; and/or
