2 - Website contents

2.1 - Purpose

Our goal is to promote and widen the use of sport, leisure and recreational facilities. The purpose of the Website is to permit You, for non-commercial purposes, to make online reservations of sport, leisure and recreational facilities with or without equipment rental and/or instruction (“Facility” or “Facilities”) with certain third-party companies including government or public facilities in accordance with this Agreement and prevailing laws. You accept and understand that We are not the providers of such Facilities.

We may change the Website’s format and contents from time to time. In addition, We reserve the right to add to or remove certain services, either temporarily or permanently, without being required to obtain your prior agreement. Such actions shall not, in any way, imply, suggest or constitute our approval or sponsorship of a third-party company or an affiliation between Us and a third-party company. The inclusion or the offering of any services on the Website or through the Website does not constitute any endorsement or recommendations of such services notwithstanding any notation distributed based on user reviews. The third-party companies are independent contractors and not agents or employees of Us.

We try to ensure that all information contained on the Website provided to us by third parties (other than content generated by the User) is accurate, but that information is not intended to be authoritative or constitute advice that is to be relied upon. The information may not be representative of the reality of the services. You agree that the Website is provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis, at your own risk. Before acting in reliance upon the information on the Website, please contact Us or use a relevant source of information.

2.2 - External links and Contracts with third party suppliers of Facilities 

The Website may, from time to time, include content describing Facilities offered by third party Facility providers. Although the Website may allow you to book such Facilities with third parties, such content is provided to us by the Facility provider and is displayed in order to give You access to information, products or services provided by those third parties and the terms and conditions on which they will provide Facilities to You. We are not liable for the content provided by Facility providers or anything they offer and are unable to provide a guarantee that they shall remain permanently available. The fact that We include such content does not mean that We endorse the Facility provider; our relationship with them is governed by separate terms, which we use reasonable endeavours to enforce in order to ensure that they act in a professional manner in relation to bookings. Where the third party who offers Facilities needs a licence under Hong Kong law or regulations, please note that We do not hold such a licence. We do not provide any of the Facilities offered on the Website. Your contract is not with Us, it is with the third party who provides such Facilities. We act as a disclosed agent in introducing you to such third parties. 

2.3 - Content published by the User

The Website may, from time to time, allow you to upload user-generated content and to communicate this content, either in selected recipients or in public areas, such as comments pages, chat rooms, message boards, and/or news groups (collectively “User Content Areas”). We do not control the material submitted to User Content Areas (collectively “User Submissions”), nor are User Content Areas actively moderated.

The term "content" means any element deposited by you on the Website, such as text, comment, image, photo, video, or any type of file, whatever its content or form. You are responsible for the content of your User Submissions as submitted by you and acknowledge that all User Submissions express the views of their respective authors, and not our views.

You are free to publish, or not, content on the Website. In this case, we would like to draw your attention to the importance to keep all User Submissions relevant to the purpose of the User Content Area and to the nature of any topic and to publish or share content that respects and conforms to the code of conduct of the sports and the values of Sportfit and affiliates and partners. If you participate in any User Content Areas, you must not submit any User Submission that :

  • is unlawful, threatening, abusive, libellous, pornographic, obscene, vulgar, indecent, offensive or which infringes on the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party;
  • contains any viruses and/or other code that has contaminating or destructive elements;
  • contains any form of advertising;
  • impersonate, or misrepresent an affiliation with any person or entity.

You are responsible for anything that may happen on your behalf and from your computer terminal, in particular in the event of content submission on the Website. You guarantee that you have all the rights and authorizations necessary to submit content on the Website, in particular under the legislation in force and the Intellectual Property Rights. In the event that you have some reason to believe that your Credentials are, or may be known, by a person not authorized to use them, you undertake to immediately notify us. The Website disclaims any responsibility for the use of personal data of a user by an unauthorized third party.

2.4 - Deletion of content

Although we do not pre-select Users’ Submissions, We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to delete or to modify any content that You submit to Us at any time and without notifying You.

You may also send Us a request for content to be removed. Requests should be sent to Sportfit and should contain all information required to process your request. This information must enable the content that is the subject of your complaint to be identified.

We undertake to process any justified and legitimate request as quickly as possible, but cannot, however, guarantee that access to the content will be immediately withdrawn. You acknowledge that We may not be held liable in this respect, particularly in relation to the period of time required to process your request, technical restrictions or the practical impossibility of complying with your request, particularly where the Content is re-used by third parties.

4 - The Facility booking services

The services provided by the Website are limited to the following:

  • allowing Facility providers to advertise and sell their Facilities and allowing You to search and compare Facilities and Facility providers

  • taking and accepting bookings made by You, but without prejudice to Our right in Our sole discretion to decline any such request and/or cancel an accepted booking;
  • monitoring bookings made by You; and
  • managing any queries but our service is limited to liaising with the provider of the relevant Facility and we do not take responsibility for the provision of any Facilities, all in accordance with Hong Kong laws and regulations.

There are several steps to use the Facility booking services on the Website:

  • You choose your Facility at the time of booking;
    You select a preferred reservation time (only for tennis and water sports). For certain sports, You may need to use a reservation system after the booking to check the available times and request a reservation; In such cases You will receive another email from Us confirming that your reservation request has been accepted (“the reservation confirmation email”)
  • You identify yourself by using your Credentials, your Facebook or your Google account;
  • You complete all the mandatory fields of the registration form with current, true, complete and accurate information, including your name and last name, your Hong Kong ID number or your passport number, your phone number, your email address and You confirm that You consent to this Agreement;

  • You receive an email from Us with your corresponding booking information, acknowledging that your reservation has been accepted (“the purchase confirmation email”).

By booking a reservation with a third-party company using the Website, You agree that:

  • the Facility can only be reserved within the limits of availability and for the maximum number of people indicated on the Website;
  • any request for additional services not included in the reservation will be invoiced by the third-party company in addition;
  • We are facilitating your payment of the charges of the Facility provider as their disclosed payment agent.

The reservation will be considered definitive only after the confirmation email is sent. Unless otherwise stated in this Agreement, You may not modify, cancel or require any refund of the price of the reservation of the Facility once your reservation is definitive.

You must keep the booking information sent by email carefully because the access to the Facility may be subject to the presentation of the booking information and a valid identification document corresponding to the booking.

We will not interfere with your reservation arbitrarily but We reserve the right to take steps to verify your identity to process your reservation request and to withdraw booking facilitations services based on certain extenuating circumstances, notably if the reservation is no longer available or if we have reasonable cause to suspect that a reservation request is false or fraudulent.

  • You are Permitted to book the Facility at your residence university or club, to offer it to non-residents or non-members on the Website and to charge for it and you authorise Us to offer it to Appyplayers according to Our terms and conditions; “Permitted” means that You have the right to do this and it is not a breach of any of the regulations relating to your residence university or club. We do not in any way suggest or encourage you to do anything other than to fully comply with such regulations. If your residence university or club makes any objection to you offering the Facility on the Website, you must inform us immediately giving us full details and we will consult with you whether to amend or remove the listing but our decision will be final. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, You agree not to hold Us liable and to indemnify Us against any direct or indirect losses, liabilities, costs or expenses arising as a result of any non-compliance by You with the regulations relating to your residence university or club.
  • You have booked and if necessary paid for the Facility prior to giving us details of the time available;
  • You will provide the services of allowing the Appyplayer to contact you, giving him/her all relevant details of the Facility, meeting him/her, accompanying him/her to the Facility if necessary and giving all necessary explanations; You accept that feedback will be taken by Us on your provision of those services;
  • If you fail to find an Appyplayer to use the Facility, we will reimburse you the amount which you would have been paid based on the price you told us you want to charge, against proof that you have actually reserved and paid for the Facility. The amount to be refunded may vary from time to time following changes to these terms and conditions. We reserve the right to notify you that the number of refunds is limited, if we find (in our sole opinion) that an Appyhost is requesting too many refunds.

Please note that if we find that you are in breach of any of the warranties above and/or we get material or repeated negative feedback indicating dissatisfaction with the services you provide to Appyplayers, we may suspend or permanently remove you as an Appyhost and/or as an Appyplayer.

6 – Sport, leisure and recreational facilities

The Facility booking service offered  on the Website for each particular Facility provided by third parties will specify any of the third party’s prices or rental rates, any special conditions, the location, the duration of the booking, any minimum and maximum number of persons and whether there is a late fee if the Facility is occupied beyond the booking times. The prices and terms and conditions for cancelling the reservation, in particular the minimum notice required to cancel without any expense, will be specified. The Website will also indicate whether any equipment rental and/or instruction is included by the third party or if it is additional and the language of instruction. It may also indicate suitable clothing and other items you are expected to bring with you and describe any  protective equipment and whether this is available to rent. 

7 - Price and payment methods

The prices of the services offered on the Website include all service fees and applicable charges in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The prices are displayed on the Website in Hong Kong Dollars.

If we introduce any new or additional charges in the future, which We reserve the right to do, we will notify You by making the change in charges clear on the Website but this would not affect existing bookings made prior to the change in charges.

We may, in Our sole discretion, create promotional coupons that may be redeemed for the use of Facilities, subject to any additional terms that We establish (“Coupons”). You agree that Coupons: (i) must be used for the intended purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Us; (iii) may be disabled by Us at any time for any reason without liability to You; (iv) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that We establish; (v) are not valid for cash; and (vi) may expire prior to your use. We reserve the right to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of Coupons by you or any other user in the event that We determine or believe that the use or redemption of the Coupon was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the applicable Coupon terms or these Terms.

There are several payment methods. You can pay by credit card or debit card (VISA, Mastercard and American express) or by mobile payment (Alipay, Google pay, apple pay, Microsoft pay, Wechat pay, Visa checkout and MasterCard contactless).

If You choose to pay by card, the price of your selected services will be debited from your account once your reservation is ready to be taken into account.

Online payment transactions are put through validation systems by your card issuer. We are not liable if your card issuer refuses to authorise payment for any reason whatsoever. We draw your attention to the fact that your card issuer may charge You processing or online processing fees. We are not responsible for such fees.

We engage  third-party companies to process payments securely  including Banks, (https://stripe.com/hk) and Shopify’s checkout systems (or such other companies as may be added by us at our discretion in the future). Your bank details are forwarded to this company using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, with the result that they do not pass through the Website’s IT system at any time, and are not accessible by the Website or its employees. Please note that this third-party company processes your payment, not Us. You agree to review and be bound by its policies and procedures before making a reservation through our Website.

If you decide to store the details of your bank card on the Website so that you do not have to re-enter the information when you make a subsequent payment, We undertake to only hold a key which, in conjunction with other information, allows You to pay for the transaction, while the details of your bank card continue to be stored and processed by the third-party company.

If an anti-fraud check is carried out to ensure the security of customer transactions, We may ask You to provide one or more documents containing proof of your address and/or a copy of a valid identity card(s) by email, before your booking is confirmed. Your booking will only be final once the Website has received these documents and issued a confirmation email. In the absence of these documents or if the documents do not adequately establish your identity and address, We reserve the right to reject the booking. The Website also reserves the right to refuse a booking in the event of an ongoing payment dispute.

In order to evidence the contractual relationships We have entered into, your booking information is stored on a reliable database. In the absence of proof to the contrary, our electronic databases and those of our service providers that are kept under adequate security conditions will constitute proof of all transactions entered into between us. In any event, We recommend that You save the confirmation email.

8 - Cancellation and refunds for the User

Some Facilities do not permit cancellation, only rebooking subject to their terms and conditions. If so this will be clearly stated on the Website.

For Facilities which allow a right to cancel, Your right to cancel will be exercised without expense if You give more than the specified minimum notice to cancel before your reservation.

No refund will be made if You give less than the specified minimum notice to cancel before your reservation. In appropriate cases we will make a partial refund depending on the length of time pre-reservation and the contracts and practises of third party providers.

In order to exercise the right to cancel, You have to click on “cancel” option in the confirmation email (for tennis only).  For other sports please contact us via email . You may also notify your decision to cancel this contract by sending a clear, unambiguous notification to the following address:

  • by post: Appysport, WeWork, 19/F, Tower 535, 535 Jaffe Rd, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
  • by contacting us via email: contact@appysport.com

If successful, You will receive an email indicating you that the cancellation is taken into account and You will be refunded (whether wholly or partially) within ten days. For payments made by bank card, repayment will be made directly to the account connected to your bank card.

A third-party company may cancel the reservation after you receive the confirmation email. In this event, one email will be sent to you in order to confirm that your reservation is canceled and you will be so notified within ten days.

9 - The access and the use of the Facility

The reservation of the Facility is individual to You. The provider of the Facility may verify your identity and request the presentation of a valid identification document corresponding to the one entered in the booking in order to allow You access to the Facility. You may be requested to present your reservation or  confirmation emails.

The Website and the Facilities are provided to you as an individual and not as a business or, even if You are not carrying on a business, for the purpose of making any type of financial gain from booking the Facilities If We discover that you are using Website or booking the Facilities as a business or for any type of financial gain we will immediately cancel all bookings made by you without any refund and without liability to You.

10 – Risks, Facility providers’ Terms
