How the Service Works. The Service can be used to facilitate the listing of Provider’s services and the booking of said services by Guests. Tour Pass makes available a platform or marketplace for Guests and Providers to meet online and make a reservation related to Provider’s services (a “Booking”). Tour Pass is not an owner or operator of the Provider or any associated rental property, including, but not limited to, boats, equipment, nor is it a provider of the underlying activities, classes or tours, and Tour Pass does not own, sell, furnish, provide, rent, manage or control Provider’s products and services. Tour Pass responsibilities are limited to: (a) facilitating the availability of our Service to make Bookings and (b) serving as the limited agent of each Provider for the purpose of accepting payments from Guests on behalf of the Provider.
Bookings. As a condition of your use of this Service, you warrant that (a) you are 16 years old or older if you are a Guest and 18 years old or older if you are a Provider or Booking Agent’s representative ; (b) you possess the legal authority to create a binding legal obligation; (c) you will use this Service in accordance with this Agreement; (d) you will only use this Service to make legitimate listing and/or Bookings for you or for another person for whom you are legally authorized to act; (e) you will not make any speculative, false or fraudulent listings or Bookings; (f) you will inform such other persons about the terms and conditions that apply to the Bookings, including all applicable rules and restrictions, and obtain their agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions; (g) all information supplied by you is true, accurate, current and complete, (h) you will not use the Service to find a Provider or Guest and then complete the transaction independent of the Service, attempt to circumvent any obligation to pay any fee to Tour Pass, or make any Bookings in the anticipation of demand, and (i) if you have a Tour Pass account, you will safeguard your account information and will be responsible for any use of your account by you and anyone other than you.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TOUR PASS DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS OR BOOKING AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR GUARANTEES ABOUT THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY PRODUCT AND SERVICES OFFERED BY PROVIDER. TOUR PASS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS, BOOKINGS AND PROVIDER’S PRODUCTS AND SERVICES. THE USE OF PROVIDER’S PRODUCTS AND SERVICES IS AT THE GUEST’S OWN RISK.
The Providers, not Tour Pass, are solely responsible for honoring any Bookings and making available any product and services reserved through our Service. You agree and understand that you may be required to enter into an agreement with the Provider and that your Booking is contingent upon you agreeing to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions imposed by the Provider. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Tour Pass, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements and that Tour Pass is not a party to such agreements.
