1.1 The Adventure IO Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Users”) and certain third parties who receive payment for providing an Adventure to a Participant on the Adventure IO Platform, including but not limited to, Brands, Retailers, Media Outlets, Hotels, and individuals (Users who offer such services are known as “Guides” and the services they offer are referred to as a “Guide Service”) to publish such Guide Service on the Adventure IO Platform (“Adventures”) and to communicate and transact directly with Participants that are seeking to book such Guide Service (Users using Guide Services are “Participants”). Adventures may include single or multi-day adventures in various categories, access to unique locations, and a variety of other travel and non-travel related services.
1.2 As the creator of the Adventure IO Platform, Adventure IO does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Adventures or Guide Services, nor is Adventure IO an organizer or retailer of travel packages under Directive (EU) 2015/2302. Guides alone are responsible for their Adventures and Guide Services. When Users make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Adventure IO is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Users, nor is Adventure IO an insurer. Adventure IO is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Users, except as specified in the Payment Terms.
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Adventure IO has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Adventures or Guide Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Adventure descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other User Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any User or third party. Adventure IO does not endorse any User, Adventure or Guide Service. Any references to a User being "verified" (or similar language) only indicate that the User has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Adventure IO about any Users, including of the User’s identity or background or whether the User is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to participate in an Adventure or use a Guide Service, accept a booking request from a Participant, or communicate and interact with other Users, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of an Adventure at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by Adventure IO of any Guide or Adventure.
1.4 If you choose to use the Adventure IO Platform as a Guide, your relationship with Adventure IO is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Adventure IO for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Adventure IO. Adventure IO does not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance under these Terms specifically, including in connection with your provision of the Guide Service. You acknowledge and agree that you have complete discretion whether to list Guide Service or otherwise engage in other business or employment adventures.
1.5 To promote the Adventure IO Platform and to increase the exposure of Adventures to potential Participants, Adventures and other User Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Users who speak different languages, Adventures and other User Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. Adventure IO cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Users are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The Adventure IO Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
1.6 The Adventure IO Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. Adventure IO is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by Adventure IO of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, Adventure IO cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Adventure IO Platform. Adventure IO may restrict the availability of the Adventure IO Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Adventure IO Platform. Adventure IO may improve, enhance and modify the Adventure IO Platform and introduce new Adventure IO Services from time to time.
