3. Purpose of the Platform
Game Theory is a service provider intending to elevate the sporting experience with its technology and services. Game Theory provides access to its sporting facilities allowing its customers to “pay and play” through the various plans and schemes available on the Platform. Game Theory also provides coaching services to its customers. Such services are provided both through its own facilities as well as its tie ups with various third parties. Using the Platform, Users can create their own profiles, book sporting facilities, track their scores through our smart wearable devices, record the audio and video of their game through our technology, analyse their performance through the statistics we generate, access our leader boards, share the media and data generated through social media, connect with other Users, redeem GameCoins for merchandise and other services, and avail coaching services from our professionals. The services offered may vary from time to time, based on viability and availability, and shall be offered at the sole discretion of Game Theory.
4. How It Works
- Upon registration, you may browse our various services and facilities, as listed on the Platform and choose to make a booking. Such bookings can be made individually or by a group of people, based on the nature of service being availed. Payment for the booking can be made through the channels provided by our payment service provider.
- You will then arrive at our facility where you have made the booking, and our representative will verify your identity. Alternatively, you may be required to check-in yourself and verify your identity through the technology installed at the premises.
- You can then use the facilities and services availed. Some services and facilities may be technology enabled, that is, we may provide you with our smart wearables or allow you to connect your smart wearables to our technology allowing you to keep track of scores live, and monitor and compare with other Users data generated by such wearables including number of steps, calories burnt, etc. Audio and video recording of your use of the facilities may also be generated and shared with you and other Users using the facilities with you.
- Your profile on the Platform shall contain statistics pertaining to your use of our facilities and services, including the number of games played, wins and losses, scores, etc. and may compare comparisons with other Users on the Platform. We may also generate such comparisons with respect to Users activity, that is, number of steps taken, calories burnt, etc.
- By using or accessing the Platform, you grant us consent to access your phone book and smart wearable device, and to send you push notifications through the Platform.
- By using GameCoins on the Platform, the User can pay for bookings. Alternatively, Game Theory may, at its discretion, choose to facilitate the purchase of goods and services through the Platform or payments to other Users through GameCoins.
5. Payments, Cancellation and Refund
- Game Theory earns its revenue through its service charge. Game Theory does not participate in the fund flow and utilises Razorpay or similar service providers for the purposes of payment aggregation and other payment services. The User is hence advised to familiarise himself / herself with the terms of such service provider before making payments on our Platform.
- You might be required to provide your credit or debit card details to the payment service provider. In this regard, you agree to provide accurate details. You shall not use payment methods that are not lawfully owned by you. You are solely liable for the security and confidentiality of your payment details. We do not receive such payment details and expressly disclaim all liabilities that may arise as a consequence of unauthorised use of your payment methods.
- Bookings once made cannot be re-scheduled, but may be cancelled. Upon cancellation of a booking or service, the refund may be directed back to source, or provided in the form of GameCoins, based on the User’s choice. It is hereby clarified, that if the User chooses GameCoins, he / she shall receive a 100% (one hundred percent) refund. If the User chooses a refund back to source he / she shall receive a refund of only 90% (ninety percent) of the consideration. This is to cater to the payment service provider charges and other ancillary expenses / losses faced by Game Theory due to the cancellation.
- Game Theory shall not be liable to make any refunds for the User’s failure to use the facilities booked or the services availed. The information provided by Game Theory on the Platform shall be updated by it on a regular basis. If Game Theory amends, alters or withdraws any services and the same is not updated on the Platform, Game Theory shall ensure that a replacement is offered or the payment is refunded.
- If money has been deducted from a User’s payment method and the payment has not been reflected on the Platform, please contact us at email@example.com. Your payment will usually be reflected within 48-72 (forty eight to seventy-two) hours if the transaction is successful at the payment gateway. If your payment status is not updated in the given time frame, please contact your bank for further assistance. Game Theory shall not, in any manner whatsoever, be responsible for failures attributable to your bank or the payment service provider or their policies in this regard.
