4.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform You of this and will not charge You for the Services.

(c) if there a reduction to the number of matches each team plays in any given season than originally advertised to accommodate increased team numbers, in such event we will issue a pro rata refund to reflect the reduction in matches; or

6.3 We reserve the right to change the rules and regulations of the Try Tag Rugby game at any point, including mid-way through a league or season. Accordingly, each time you use our services, you accept these terms and conditions as they apply at that date.
7. PROVIDING THE SERVICES
7.1 When we will provide the Services. We will supply the Services to You from the Commencement Date until we have completed the Services. The estimated completion date for the Services is as outlined on our website or until either You end the Contract as described in clause 9 or we end the contract by written notice to You as described in clause 10.
7.2 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our performance of the Services is affected by an event outside our control then we will contact You as soon as possible to let You know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event.
7.3 What will happen if You do not provide required information to us. As we informed You in the description of the Services, we will need certain information from You so that we can provide the Services to You, for example and without limitation, the names, email addresses, and date of births of members of your team. We will contact You to ask for this information. This information is required so that registered players are covered by our Personal Accident Insurance. If You do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with this information, or You provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (see clause 10.1) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra administration that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for providing the Services late or not providing any part of them if this is caused by You not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.4 Reasons we may suspend the Services. We may have to suspend the Services to:
(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
(b) update the Services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or
(c) make changes to the Services notified by us to You (see clause 6).
7.5 Your rights if we suspend the Services. We will contact You in advance to tell You we will be suspending the Services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the Services for longer than three weeks in any period we will adjust the price so that You do not pay for Services while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the Contract if we suspend the Services, or tell You we are going to suspend them, in each case for a period of more than three weeks and we will refund any sums You have paid in advance for Services not provided to You. The right to cancel the contract under this clause does not arise, nor does the refund become payable in the event your services are suspended pursuant to matters outlined at clause 7.7.
7.6 We may also suspend the Services if You do not pay. If You do not pay us for the Services when You are supposed to (see clause 12.4) and You still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding You that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the Services until You have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact You to tell You we are suspending supply of the Services. We will not suspend the Services where You dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 12.8). We will not charge You for the Services during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the Services we can also charge You interest on your overdue payments (see clause 12.7).
7.7 We may suspend services if You break the Contract. We may suspend the Contract at any time by writing to You if:
(a) You do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the Services, for example, details of the players to be registered in your squad;
(b) You abuse or insult TTR Staff, referees, or volunteers, whether in person or in writing, such as on social media channels and/or in correspondence;
(c) engage in on-field disciplinary issues; which can be reviewed at the playing venue or at a later date by our staff. Such matters include, but are not limited to, persistent sending off or sin bins; sending off for a severe breach of the rules or our safety policy; dangerous, unsporting or criminal conduct;
(d) You act against the interests of TTR, for example by recruiting, or attempting to recruit, for rival organisations or businesses at our leagues and venues; or
(e) a team forfeits two matches in one season after 4pm on match day or are a complete no show.
7.8 Suspension of Services is a ban on You playing any matches at our venues or competitions until we agree to reinstate services to You. We reserve the right to suspend partial services to You, such as ringing privileges, in the event of circumstances set out at clause 7.7.
7.9 Team organisers are responsible for payment. If for some reason a team has not paid for a season in full, the team organiser is responsible for any shortfall. Teams can be registered by logging in at www.trytagrugby.com.
7.10 Beneficial extras do not form part of our Services. As a registered TTR player, whether as an individual player or part of team, you receive additional benefits such as the ability to be a “ringer” for other teams and on some occasions free food and drink offers from pubs and after-match venues whom we have partnered. These extras do not form part of the Services we provide and we are not liable if extras are not provided.
8. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

(b) Our obligations under these Terms will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event outside our control. Where the event outside our control affects our performance of Services to You, we will restart the Services as soon as reasonably possible after the event outside our control is over; and
(c) in the event we cannot restart the Services provided to You, i.e., if to do so would extend the Services beyond the season’s end date, which runs for a fixed period, the Services will be reduced. We will adjust the price so that You do not pay for Services which You have not received, provided the suspension of Services lasts for longer than three weeks in any period.
8.4 If a competition round is cancelled due to events outside our control, no refunds will be given. At our discretion, we may decide to award pro rata credits for a cancelled round. In the event of such credits being awarded the following conditions will apply:
a. Credits will only be made to the TTR system to make payments to future league registrations; no cash credits will be given.
b. Credits will only be given to teams; no credits will be given to individuals.

12. PRICE AND PAYMENT
12.1 Where to find the price for the Services. The price of the Services (which includes VAT for Try Tag Rugby Ltd, but not Try Tag Rugby Yorkshire Ltd) will be the price set out on our website, in force at the date of your order unless we have agreed another price in writing. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Services advised to You are correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Services You order.
12.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we provide the Services, we will adjust the rate of VAT that You pay, unless You have already paid for the Services in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
12.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Service's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Service's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated in our price list, we will contact You for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by You as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund You any sums You have paid, and not perform the Services.
12.4 When You must pay and how You must pay. For team registration You must make an advance cleared payment of £100 for any league registration before we start providing Services. We accept payment with online payment, bank transfer, cash, or over the telephone. The full cleared payment is due before either the second or third rounds of the competition league You have signed up for, as set out in the description of our Services on our website. If You are registering as an individual player You must pay the full league fee before we start providing Services to You.
12.5 Competition points are deducted for failure to comply with these Terms. We reserve the right to deduct competition points for late payments and for failure to provide the information set out in clause 7.3
12.6 Team bonds in the event of “no shows”. We reserve the right to request a £100 bond prior to the league competition commencing. In the event of a ‘no show’ by your team, or insufficient notice given to us to be able to arrange a friendly fixture, we reserve the right to use your bond to compensate your opponent who did not have a match as a result of your no show. Further, we may charge a reasonable administration fee for our time in arranging alternative fixtures.
12.7 We can charge interest if You pay late. If You do not make any payment to us by the due date (see clause 12.4) we may charge interest to You on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
12.8 What to do if You think an invoice is wrong. If You think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge You interest until we have resolved the issue.
13. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
13.1 We are responsible to You for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage You suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this Contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the Contract was made, both we and You knew it might happen, for example, if You discussed it with us during the registration process.
13.2 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Services for private purposes. If You use the Services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to You for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

13.6 We are not liable for injuries caused to You by other players. In the unfortunate event another user of our services injures You during a match we are not liable for any loss or damage caused.

15.4 Even if we delay in enforcing this Contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that You do anything You are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against You in respect of Your breaking this Contract, that will not mean that You do not have to do those things or prevent us taking steps against You at a later date.
