- REGISTERING AS AN ADVENTURE SEEKER

Upon the completion and submission of the online registration form, you shall be sent an email (“Registration Email”) to the email address you provided on the registration form. This Registration Email will contain your Login Details. Your account will not be accessible until you have received the Registration Email with your Login Details.
- SEARCHING FOR PROFESSIONALS
Our Website allows you to search for and compare Professionals. You will need to answer a number of questions on the Website in order to compare or obtain a quote for the provision of your selected Adventure Sports. These questions are designed to ensure that we and all relevant Professionals have all the information necessary to provide you with appropriate and timely information relating to the Adventure Sports in which you are interested. Aspects of the Adventure Sports such as the degree of difficulty and the amount you will pay will be determined by the answers you provide to these questions. It is therefore very important that you answer all of the questions truthfully, completely and accurately and that you disclose all relevant facts.
Before you submit a Search Request, you must check all of the information, content, material or data your provide to us to ensure it is correct, complete, accurate and not misleading and that you have disclosed all relevant facts. It is your responsibility to identify and correct any mistakes or errors in the information, content, material or data before you submit a Search Request. Failure to do so could invalidate an Offer.
You must get permission from any other person whose information you intend to provide on the Website before you provide it. In submitting any other person's details, you are confirming to us that you have their permission to do so and that they understand how their details will be used.

19.1. Once you have submitted a Search Request, you can review Offers made by Professionals. We do not guarantee that any Offers will be made pursuant to your Search Request.

You acknowledge and agree that when making a Booking, you have read and understood the applicable cancellation and refund policy for the Offer and have accepted the Professional Terms relating to the Offer. We not verify the accuracy, fairness or correctness of the Professional Terms and you enter into a contract for the supply of the Adventure Sports by your selected Professional at your own risk.
19.3. The Website does not permit instant bookings resulting in immediate confirmation through the Website. This means that a Professional is unable to immediately confirm acceptance of your Booking. Your Booking will only be confirmed if the Professional accepts it within 48 hours of being notified of your Booking, whereupon it will be considered a Confirmed Booking. If the Professional has not accepted your Booking within the 48 hour period, it will be deemed to have been rejected and we may cancel the Booking.
19.4. You acknowledge and agree that when you make a Booking with a Professional through the Website, you will enter into a contract directly with the Professional for the provision of the applicable Adventure Sports. We are not a party to that contract, and you and the Professional will be separately responsible and liable to one another under the terms of that contract.
19.5. In the event that the Professional is unable to confirm their availability in accordance with clause 19.3, you will give us a reasonable opportunity to locate an alternative Professional who is able to provide the Adventure Sports requested by you. If we are unable to find an alternative Professional or you have notified us that you do not wish to engage with any substitute Professional located by us, you will be refunded the Booking Fee paid by you to us as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter.
20.1. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that we are not a party to the contract between you and the Professional, we act as the Professional’s payment collection agent solely for accepting payments from you on their behalf. You agree to pay us the fees (as the Professional’s payment collection agent), notified to you in the applicable Offer (“Booking Fee”). In addition, we charge a fee in respect of each Booking (“Transaction Fee”), which is added to the Booking Fee. The amount of the Transaction Fee is as notified to you as part of any Offer. The Booking Fee and the Transaction Fee must be paid at the time of making your Booking. The Professional is required to confirm that it accepts the Booking and if you do not receive confirmation from the Professional within the 48 hour period mentioned in clause 19.3, your Booking shall be deemed to be rejected.
20.2. In connection with your payment of the Booking Fee and Transaction Fee, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to us or our payment processor. You agree to pay the Booking Fee and Transaction Fee using one of the methods described on the Website. You hereby authorise the collection of such amounts using the method selected by you through the Website, either directly by us or indirectly, via our payment processor. If you are directed to our payment processor, you may be subject to terms and conditions governing use of their service. Please review such terms and conditions before using the processing services. If we do not receive payment of the Booking Fee and Transaction Fee, your Booking will be automatically cancelled.
If you wish to cancel a Confirmed Booking, the cancellation and refund policy of the Professional contained in the applicable Offer will apply to such cancellation. Our ability to refund all or part of the Booking Fee and Transaction Fee will depend upon the terms of the Professional selected cancellation and refund policy.
20.3. If the Professional does not accept your Booking, we will refund the Booking Fee and the Transaction Fee to you within a commercially reasonable time of the Professional’s rejection.
20.4. You shall ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place to cover your participation in any Adventure Sports.

but you acknowledge that termination of your registration shall not affect any Confirmed Bookings made by you through the Website.
SECTION C: PROFESSIONAL ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS
This Section C shall apply to you if you are a Professional.
- REGISTERING AS A PROFESSIONAL
In order to offer Adventure Sports through the Website you will need to register as a Professional. You will need to complete and submit a registration form to us which includes, without limitation, details of your qualifications, experience and Professional Terms (“Professional Registration Form”).
Upon the submission of the Professional Registration Form, we will inform you whether your registration has been successful. In the event that your registration is successful, you shall be sent an email (“Registration Email”) to the email address you provided on the registration form. This Registration Email will contain your Login Details. The Website will not be accessible until you have received the Registration Email with your Login Details.
- BOOKINGS AND PROFESSIONAL TERMS
23.1. If we submit a Search Request to you, it means we believe you may be a suitable provider of the Adventure Sports requested pursuant to the Search Request. If you are able to provide the requested Adventure Sports on the dates requested, you may submit an Offer to us for presentation to the Adventure Seeker. You are responsible for ensuring you are satisfied with the relevant terms of any Offer you submit, including but not limited to the fee payable by the Adventure Seeker for the Offer (“Booking Fee”) and the booking dates. In order for your Offer to be presented to the Adventure Seeker, it must include the following information:
23.1.1. the Booking Fee;
23.1.2. your cancellation and refund terms;
23.1.3. your other Professional Terms.
23.2. If you receive a Booking following submission of your Offer in accordance with clause 23.1, you can accept it via the Website, where you will also be able to review details of the Booking. When you accept a Booking by clicking “Confirm Booking”, we will send you an email, text message or message via the Website confirming such acceptance and the Booking will become a Confirmed Booking. If you have not accepted a Booking within 48 hours of you being notified of the Booking, we will assume that you have rejected it and we may remove your ability to accept it
23.3. You acknowledge and agree that when you accept a Booking in accordance with clause 23.2, you will enter into a contract directly with the Adventure Seeker for the provision of the Adventure Sports. We are not a party to that contract, and you and the Adventure Seeker will be separately responsible and liable to one another under the terms of that contract.
23.4. You are responsible for ensuring that an Adventure Seeker has been notified of and has accepted your cancellation and refund policy, together with your other Professional Terms prior to you accepting any Booking.
- FEES AND PAYMENT
24.1. You hereby appoint us as your limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Booking Fee from Adventure Seekers.
24.2. You agree that payment made by an Adventure Seeker via our payment processor shall be considered as a payment made directly to you and you will proceed with the Confirmed Booking as if you had received the applicable Booking Fee. You acknowledge and agree that we accept payments from Adventure Seekers as your limited payment collection agent and that our obligation to pay you the Adjusted Booking Fee (as defined below) is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Adventure Seekers. We do not guarantee payments to you for amounts that have not been successfully received by us from Adventure Seekers. In accepting appointment as your limited payment collection agent, we assume no liability for any acts or omissions by you or the Adventure Seekers.
24.3. We charge you a fee in respect of each Confirmed Booking (“Service Fee”). The amount of the Service Fee is as notified by us to you from time to time (which may be in writing, by email or through the Website). The Service Fee is deducted from the Booking Fee, so the amount you receive from us in relation to any Confirmed Booking will be less than the amount we receive from the Adventure Seeker (“Adjusted Booking Fee”).
24.4. We will collect the Booking Fee from Adventure Seekers at the time they submit their Booking. We will use all reasonable endeavours to initiate payment of the Adjusted Booking Fee to you within 30 days of your completed provision of the Adventure Sports to which the Confirmed Booking relates. The time it takes for you to receive the Adjusted Booking Fee may vary depending on our method of payment.
24.5. Notwithstanding clause 24.4 and unless already released to you, the Adjusted Booking Fee due to you may be withheld from you in the event an Adventure Seeker submits a complaint against you. In the event the Adventure Seeker provides evidence of such claims, we reserve the right to conduct investigations and you agree to co-operate with such investigations, providing such information and answering such questions as we may reasonably request. On completion of our investigation, release of the Adjusted Booking Fee to you shall be at our sole discretion and any decision we make, acting reasonably, shall be final.
24.6. You agree that we may, in accordance with your selected cancellation and refund policy as reflected in the relevant Offer, (i) permit the Adventure Seeker to cancel the Confirmed Booking and (ii) refund to the Adventure Seeker that portion of the Booking Fee specified in the applicable cancellation and refund policy.
24.7. If your Adventure Seeker cancels a Confirmed Booking and we issue a refund to the Adventure Seeker in accordance with your selected cancellation and refund policy, you agree that in the event you have already been paid the Adjusted Booking Fee, we shall be entitled to recover the amount of any such Adventure Seeker refund from you, including by subtracting such refund amount from any future fees due to you.
24.8. For the avoidance of doubt, your Service Fee is non-refundable in the event of cancellation of a Confirmed Booking. Calculation of any amounts due to you following a cancellation in accordance with your selected cancellation and refund policy is based on the Adjusted Booking Fee amount.
24.9. You are solely responsible for determining any tax reporting requirements that may apply to you. We do not offer any tax advice and you are solely responsible for the payment of all taxes, duties and government contributions and any other amounts due in connection with any payment received by you in connection with the Website.
