We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of these website terms at any time without further notice. If we do this, we will post the changes to these website terms on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. Your continued use of the website after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new website terms. It is your responsibility to regularly check the website to determine if there have been changes to these website terms and to review such changes. Please the take time to read these terms as it is important for both of us that you understand our contractual relationship both relating to your use of our website and the services we provide you.
Before using any of the services, please read carefully the following terms and conditions of use. By accessing, browsing and/or using the services, a user acknowledges that he or she has read, understood, and agrees to be bound by all consents and disclosures set forth in the Tribesports terms and conditions of use, including any future modifications to the Tribesports terms and conditions of use, and identified affiliated agreements, guidelines and policies (collectively, the “agreement”). If a user does not consent to the agreement, then Tribesports requires that such user cease using the services immediately.
Tribesports services are available for individuals aged 13 years or older. If a user is 13 or older but under the age of 18, then such user agrees to review the agreement with his or her parent(s) or guardian(s) to ensure that both the user and parent(s) or guardian(s) understand and consent to the agreement and that the user and his or her parent(s) or guardian(s) review and accept the agreement on the user’s behalf through the Tribesports registration process. If the reader of the agreement is a parent or guardian entering this agreement for the benefit of a child over 14, then he or she agrees and accepts full responsibility for his or her child’s use of Tribesports and the services, including all financial charges and legal liability that such child may incur.
By using Tribesports or the services, a user therefore agrees, represents and warrants that:
- He or she is 13 years or older but under the age of 18 and he or she has reviewed and consented to the agreement with his or her parents per the protocol set forth above; or
- He or she is 18 years or older; and has consented to and agreed to the agreement; and.

Users further acknowledge and agree that the warranty disclaimers and the limitations of liability set forth in the agreement reflect a reasonable and fair allocation of risk between users and Tribesports, and that the warranty disclaimers and the limitations of liability set forth in the agreement form an essential basis of the bargain between the users and Tribesports. Tribesports would not be able to provide the Tribesports services to users on an economically reasonable basis without these limitations and disclaimers.
1.Specific terms relating to the purchase of a product
a. When we advertise a product for sale, (for example, if you have used our search capabilities to search for a product), we are not offering to sell that product. Instead, we are inviting you to make an offer to buy the product from the third party supplier who is advertising that product on our site.
What that also means is that the final contract for the product itself will be between you and that supplier. Not between you and us. There is a difference between the advertising services we provide (which involves the service of searching for the products) and the actual purchase of the product. Although you don’t pay us (we get paid by receiving commission from our suppliers) the price you will pay will be the same as if you went to the suppliers direct.
In most cases this will mean that there are additional terms and conditions governing the contract for the purchase of the product as each supplier will have bespoke terms and conditions relating to the sale of its product. These will include terms relating to payment, delivery, returns etc.
Please make sure that you have read these terms and conditions before completing your transaction. All relevant terms and conditions will be available to you on the suppliers’ site through to which you will link once you a ready to buy.
As we act as a mere advertiser this will mean that we have no contractual liability to you in respect of the purchase of a product. If there is a problem with the product then typically your contractual remedy will be against the supplier, not us. However, we may still be liable to you if we have been in breach of these terms, have been negligent, we have misrepresented important information or have been in breach of any other relevant law.
b. Tribesports uses sophisticated technology in both running its website and in sourcing the product. Very occasionally there may be times when obvious errors occur, for example when a price, product, service or other detail displayed or presented on the website is incorrect. In this case we reserve the right to cancel (or agree an amendment with you in respect of) any contract if it has been entered into and it contains this mistake. This, of course, will be without any liability to you.
