Effective Date: January 1, 2010. This license agreement supersedes all
previous license agreements for all licensed users.
"Golfsoft" IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF GOLFSOFT COMPANY. "Golfsoft
Software" and the "Golf Secretary" line of software applications are trademarks
of Golfsoft Company.
The following abbreviations are used within this license agreement:
> Golfsoft Company ("Golfsoft")
> Golf League Secretary for Windows ("GLS")
> Golf League Secretary for Windows License Agreement ("GLSL")
> Others as may be noted within the body of this license
You should carefully read the following terms and conditions before using this
software. Unless you have a different license agreement signed by Golfsoft
Company ("Golfsoft") your use of this software indicates your acceptance of this
license agreement and warranty. This license agreement is subject to change from
time to time.
There will NOT be a major upgrade to a new version of GLS in 2010. Current
subscribers of GLS v9.0 or greater can continue to download updates for GLS
v9.9xx. If you need to upgrade from an older version (prior to v9.0) or move GLS
to a new computer you will need a current subscription.
NEW LICENSING AND PRICING PHILOSOPHY
Many golf leagues change league secretaries every couple of years. Rather
than charge a higher initial license fee for our Golf League Secretary (GLS)
application, we have adopted a policy of licensing on a lower priced
subscription basis. Licensing subscriptions are based on a two-year cycle. A
lower initial subscription fee (new users) is charged for the first two years
and an even lower renewal subscription fee is charged to extend the subscription
for an additional two years. During the subscription period a subscriber can
download and install the latest version of GLS and all updates on their current
computer(s) (up to 2 computers) and can download and install GLS on any new
computers or new versions of Windows which they may acquire. This policy keeps
subscribers up to date at the lowest cost.
We have also eliminated the Express Edition of GLS which allows up to 2
leagues, and now offer the Standard Edition which allows up to 4 leagues as the
entry level application. Because of this revised policy, we have also
eliminated the "Transfer" option which allowed a GLSL to be transferred to a new
user. Instead, a new league secretary is treated as a new user with a new
license subscription. There is no need for the "Move" or "Upgrade" options as
any current subscriber can move GLS to a different computer at any time. All
options depend on whether the user has a current subscription or an expired
subscription. Current subscribers can download and install the latest version of
GLS on up to two computers and can move GLS to other computers if needed.
NEW IN THIS LICENSE
1. Any GLS version 9.0 and older is no longer supported. This includes all
versions of GLS released prior to 2008. Do not inquire about any problems or
questions concerning GLS versions 1.1xx through 9.0xx. It is recommended that
all users upgrade to the latest version (GLS v9.9xx). Go to golfsoft.com for
information about how to upgrade, update, or move your GLSL.
2. A Golf League Secretary for Windows License Agreement ("GLSL") is classified
as a two-year subscription. This is a simple process. New licensed users pay an
initial 2-year subscription fee. When this subscription expires, it can be
renewed for an additional two years at a reduced renewal cost.
3. The Express Edition of GLS has been eliminated. Only the Standard Edition (4
leagues) and Professional Edition (Unlimited leagues) are now available. The
cost of renewing a subscription for the Standard Edition has been lowered to
$35.00 for two years, the same as the previously available Express Edition.
4. Current Subscribers can now install the latest version GLS on up to two
computers at the same time (receive two unlock codes) and can continue to move
GLS from one computer to another as needed.
5. REINSTALL OR MOVE LICENSE POLICY: If your subscription is current, you can
move your GLSL to a different computer at no charge and install the latest
version available. The installation files for versions older than the current
version (v9.0xx) are no longer available. If you do not have your original
installation files you must renew your subscription and download the latest
version of GLS. You can request (by email within the GLS program) a new unlock
code at anytime for a different computer for the version you currently have
licensed. Use the "Email Order Form" from within the GLS application to request
new unlock codes or renew subscriptions. Once you receive a new unlock code, the
previously issued unlock code will be disabled (“hard-coded” within the program)
in all future GLS updates and upgrades.
Golfsoft Company ("Golfsoft") and its suppliers provide the "Golf League
Secretary for Windows" computer software product contained in the download
file(s) (the "Software") and the associated documentation contained in the
download file (the "Documentation") and license their use under the terms set
forth herein. A License for the Standard Edition of the "Software" are NOT
ISSUED in the name of entities such as corporations, companies, clubs, groups,
leagues, associations and so forth. The Standard Edition of the "Software" is
licensed for personal use only, by one person, in the name of that person, on up
to 2 computers. The Profession Edition of the "Software" can be licensed in the
name of entities such as corporations, companies, clubs, groups, leagues,
associations and so forth. Depending on which edition is licensed, the words
"you" and "your," in this agreement, may refer to one person, or to one entity
as described above. You assume responsibility for the selection of the
"Software" to achieve your intended results, and for the installation, use, and
results obtained from the "Software." DO NOT USE the "Software" in any case
where any damage or injury to persons, property, or business may happen if an
error should occur.
Software Editions: The "Software" is available in 2 Editions: Standard and
Professional. Both Editions have the same features and capabilities except for
the number of leagues that can be maintained within the program. The Standard
Edition, for example, which is used by most licensees, allows maintenance of up
to 4 leagues. Only League ID numbers 1 through 4 can be used beyond 5 weeks. All
created leagues other than League ID Numbers 1 through 4 are limited to 5 weeks
of data entry. The 6th week cannot be entered for that league. Leagues with ID
numbers 1 through 4 can be deleted to make room for another league thus making
the "Software" reusable indefinitely. If a league with ID number 1 through 4 is
deleted, a league with a higher number can be changed, within the application to
become a legal league. The Professional Edition allows an unlimited number of
leagues and all League ID numbers can be used beyond 5 weeks.
1. Use of Demo Version: Before your payment in full for the "Software" license,
per the "Software" License Fee Table ("Fee Table") which is published from time
to time and can be obtained on the "Golfsoft" website, you are granted a
personal, non-exclusive temporary license to use one copy of the "Software" on a
single computer and to use the "Documentation" under the terms stated in this
Agreement, for a maximum period of 90 days from the time of initial
2. All users must initially obtain the "Software" in the download file in
unlicensed form, also known as "The Demo Version," at no charge. You can
evaluate the "Software" to ascertain whether the "Software" will achieve your
intended results. The unlicensed version of the "Software" displays some
reminders that the "Software" is unlicensed; otherwise, all major features are
fully enabled. Upon deciding the "Software" will achieve your intended results,
you can purchase a license subscription for the "Software." DO NOT subscribe
unless you want to keep the “Software.” A unique "Unlock Code," a series of
letters and/or numbers, similar to a password, will be issued to you which when
typed in the appropriate place within the "Software" will fully enable your copy
of the "Software" on a single computer. All title and ownership of the
"Software" and "Documentation" remain with "Golfsoft Company." All computers
require a different unlock code. Your license becomes active on a single
computer when the correct unlock code is entered and the software becomes fully
enabled. "Golfsoft" reserves the right to terminate the license agreement at any
time, for any reason. A full refund will be issued if the "GLSL" is terminated
3. All new users must pay an initial subscription fee for the Golf League
Secretary License ("GLSL"), per the "Fee Table.” Upon payment in full for the
"GLSL" you become a "Licensee" and are granted a 2-year GLS software
subscription, a personal, non-exclusive right to install and use a single copy
of the "Software" on a single computer or workstation for non-simultaneous use
by one or more persons AND install a second copy of the "Software" on another
computer or workstation for the exclusive use of the person who is the primary
user of the first copy of the "Software." Current GLS subscribers can download
and install, at no charge, software updates and upgrades for the latest version
of the "Software," and, if needed, can request new unlock codes for new
computers or operating systems.

versions 1.1xx through 9.0xx. It is recommended that all users upgrade to the

8. The "Software" and "Documentation" are copyrighted 1994-2011 by "Golfsoft

Except as specifically provided herein, "Golfsoft" makes no warranty,
representation, promise or guarantee, either express or implied, statutory or
otherwise, with respect to the "Software", "Documentation" or related technical
support, including their quality, performance, merchantability or fitness for a
particular purpose. The warranty and remedies set forth herein are exclusive and
in lieu of all others, oral or written, express or implied. No "Golfsoft"
dealer, distributor, agent or employee is authorized to make any modification or
addition to this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Because computer software is inherently complex and may not be completely
free of errors, and because computer systems can fail at any time, it is your
responsibility to verify your work and to make backup copies, and "Golfsoft"
will not be responsible for your failure to do so. In no event will "Golfsoft"
be liable for indirect, special, incidental, tort, economic, cover, or
consequential damages arising out of the use of or inability to use "Golfsoft"
products or services, including, without limitation, damages or costs relating
to the loss of profits, business, goodwill, data, or computer programs, even if
advised of the possibility of such damages. In no case shall "Golfsoft’s"
liability for money damages exceed the amount paid by you for the "Software"
license out of which such claim arose. Some states or provinces do not allow the
exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or limitation of liability for
incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion or limitation may
not apply to you.
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of Michigan. The
export of "Golfsoft" products is governed by the U.S. Department of Commerce
under the export administration regulations. It is your responsibility to comply
with all such regulations.
