For the purposes of these terms, "products" means those items offered for sale by The Pro Shop or the services made available from time to time via the website.

1. Acceptance

By accessing and/or using the website, you agree to be bound by the terms. The Pro Shop may at any time modify any of the terms and such modification will supersede and replace any previous terms. The amended terms will be made available on the website. Each time you access the website and/or use the services offered via the website, you agree to be bound by the terms, as may be modified from time to time.

2. Content of the Website

Whilst every effort is made to update the information provided on this website on a regular basis, The Pro Shop makes no representations or warranties, whether express, implied in law or residual, as to the accuracy, completeness or reliability of any information, data and/or content on the website from time to time. The Pro Shop reserves the right at any time to change or discontinue without notice, any aspect or feature of the website and any information, data and/or content on the website.

3. Access Codes

Before purchasing any products via the website, you will be obliged to enter you user name or personal ID number ("ID") and personal password ("password") or other unique identifying information. Jointly we refer to the ID and password and other unique identifying information as your "Access Codes". You undertake to ensure that your Access Codes are not disclosed to any third party and to immediately report any actual or potential unauthorised access to or use of your Access Codes. On receipt of such communication, The Pro Shop reserves the right to reject any communication received from you, suspend the processing of any communications and orders not yet executed by The Pro Shop and immediately deactivate your Access Codes. You shall thereafter be obliged to refrain from ordering any products until such time as new Access Codes have been authorised by The Pro Shop. The Pro Shop may from time to time require you to change your Access Codes, as the case may be, and you undertake to comply with such instruction immediately.

4. Verification

  1. You agree that all instructions, consents, orders and other communications which purport to originate from you or a person who had authority to act on your behalf to operate automatically (unless it is proved that such information system did not properly execute such programming) (collectively "the originator") and which are sent to The Pro Shop electronically and which may (as a result of interception, equipment malfunction, the distortion of communication links or any other reason whatsoever) be different from the instructions actually sent or given, or may not have been given by you at all, shall be deemed to have been given by the originator in the form actually received by The Pro Shop and you will be bound by such instruction with no liability of whatever nature attaching to The Pro Shop in regard thereto.
  2. You waive any rights that you may have or obtain against The Pro Shop arising directly or indirectly from any loss or damage of whatsoever nature which you may suffer as a result of the fact that The Pro Shop acts on your instructions/orders or instructions/orders purported to emanate from you and you indemnify The Pro Shop against all and any claims, liabilities, losses, costs, fines, damages and expenses incurred (whether directly or indirectly) by you, arising as a result of the fact that The Pro Shop has acted on your instructions/orders or instructions/orders which purported to emanate from you.

5. Orders, confirmation & delivery

The advertising of products via the website merely constitutes an invitation by The Pro Shop for you to make an offer to purchase products and we remain entitled to reject any order without giving reasons therefore. As erroneous or outdated prices may be displayed on this website from time to time, you agree that we will not be obligated to sell a product at such erroneous price. Once you have selected the product you wish to purchase and submitted your order to The Pro Shop, you will be given the opportunity to review the entire transaction and correct any mistakes, before electing whether to withdraw from the transaction or proceed with the transaction. By clicking on the "purchase" or similar "final submit" button you are deemed to have submitted an offer to purchase the product/s selected by you ("order") and the order cannot be withdrawn by you unless expressly agreed to by The Pro Shop. The Pro Shop reserves the right to cancel the order for any reason on notice to you. Receipt of a confirmation of the order (which constitutes acceptance by The Pro Shop to process the order) will be sent to you once we receive your order. Although the website is set up to confirm receipt of orders, technical or other problems may delay or prevent such confirmations. DO NOT resend your instruction if you do not receive a confirmation from us as this may lead to a duplicate transaction for which you will be held liable. Please note that a transaction will only be deemed to have been concluded once the product/service in question has been delivered/collected in accordance with the selected delivery option or agreed process. Delivery times are estimates only and we are not liable for any late deliveries.

A pre-order is not a completed or confirmed order. Although every effort will be made to source the requested product, we cannot guarantee the availability of any product. We also reserve the right to decline any pre-order without reason. Once in receipt of a pre-order we will reserve the product for purchase by you subject to stock availability. Final pricing of pre-ordered products may vary from the price displayed at the time the pre-order was placed. All pre-orders will be confirmed with you telephonically or via email.

A product request is not an order. Although every effort will be made to source the requested product, we cannot guarantee the availability or existence of any product. We also reserve the right to decline any product request. Once in receipt of a product request we will contact the relevant supplier to establish stock availability and pricing. All product requests will be confirmed with you telephonically or via email.

Any applications which you submit to us via the website will be subject to our normal approval processes and procedures. We reserve the right to withhold approval at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to verify the identity of any purchaser or the payment method used. This may require you being required to, inter alia, send us a copy of your identity document, proof of residence, copy of front and back of your credit card. Failure to do so may result in us cancelling the order without reason. If The Pro Shop approves your application you may be required to sign additional terms & conditions, which will form the basis of The Pro Shop's agreement with you. A copy of these terms can be obtained by calling our helpdesk on 0800 000 999. If you do not agree to these additional terms & conditions then your application will be cancelled and you will not be entitled to use or access the product or service you have subscribed to.

6. Performance

All orders shall be executed within the time period notified therefor by The Pro Shop. The Pro Shop shall notify you should any products be unavailable for any reason whatever.
