1. This is a Legal Agreement

This Terms of Use ("Terms") is a legal agreement between you and Tripism ("Tripism", "we" or "us") governing your access to and use of the online services that Tripism operates and that link to these Terms, including, without limitation, the Website Content and User Content (collectively, the "Services"). Please read the Terms carefully before using the Services. Using the Services indicates that you accept and agree to be bound by the Terms. Do not use the Services if you do not accept the Terms. Tripism may change or modify the Services or the Terms at any time. Such changes, revisions, or modifications shall be effective immediately upon being posted. Any use of the Services by you after we post changes to the Terms constitutes your acceptance of those changes. You represent that you are at least 16 years old, and that all information you submit is correct.


2. Prohibited Content and Activities

You may not access or use, or attempt to access or use, the Services to take any action that could harm us or any person or entity (a "person"), interfere with the operation of the Services, or use the Services in a manner that violates any laws. For example, and without limitation, you may not:

  • Impersonate any person or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your credentials, affiliation with any person, or the origin of any information you provide;
  • Engage in unauthorized spidering, scraping, or harvesting of content or information, or use any other unauthorized automated means to compile information;
  • Obtain or attempt to gain unauthorized access to other computer systems, materials, information or any services available on or through the Services;
  • Use any device, software, or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Services or any activity conducted on the Services or attempt to probe, scan, test the vulnerability of, or breach the security of any system, device or network;
  • Circumvent, reverse engineer, decipher, decompile, disassemble, decrypt, or otherwise alter or interfere with (or attempt, encourage, or support anyone else's attempt to engage in such activities) any of the software comprising or in any way making up a part of the Services (except to the extent that such restriction on reverse engineering is prohibited by law and then you shall provide Tripism with prompt written notice prior to any such action). The use or distribution of tools designed for compromising security (e.g., password guessing programs, cracking tools or network probing tools) is strictly prohibited;
  • Take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our network or infrastructure;
  • Upload or otherwise transmit any communication, software, or material that contains a virus or is otherwise harmful to Tripism's or its users' computers, devices or systems;
  • You must not attack our site via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of service attack. By breaching this provision, you would commit a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use our Services will cease immediately; or
  • Engage in any other conduct that restricts or inhibits any person from using or enjoying the Services, or that, in our sole judgment, exposes us or any of our affiliates, users or any other third party to any liability, damages, or detriment of any type.

Violations of system or network security and certain other conduct may result in civil or criminal liability. We may investigate and work with law enforcement authorities to prosecute users who violate the Terms. We may suspend or terminate your access to the Services for any or no reason at any time without notice.

The obligations that you have to us under these Terms shall survive termination of the Services, any use by you of the Services, any User Content on the Services, or these Terms. You will not continue to post any User Content that Tripism has previously advised you not to post.

Certain areas of the Services may enable you to send emails, or otherwise provide information to Tripism or other persons.

9. Links

The Services may contain links to other websites or online services that are operated and maintained by other persons and that are not under the control of or maintained by Tripism. Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Tripism of those other websites or online services, the content displayed therein, or the persons associated therewith. These Terms do not apply to such other websites and online services, and such websites and online services are not part of the Services. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of use of these other websites or services.

10. Disclaimer of Warranties

Your use of the services is entirely at your own risk. We make no representations or warranties about the services, including without limitation the operation of the services or the information, materials, goods, or services appearing or offered on the services or with respect to any websites or services linked from the services. The services are provided "as is", "with all faults," and "as available" without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we disclaim all warranties, express, statutory or implied, including but not limited to (i) the warranties of merchantability, satisfactory purpose, fitness for a particular purpose, workmanlike effort, title, quiet enjoyment, no liens and no encumbrances; (ii) the warranties against infringement, misappropriation or violation of any intellectual property or proprietary rights of any person; (iii) warranties arising through course of dealing or usage in trade; and (iv) the warranties relating to the accuracy, reliability, correctness, or completeness of data or content made available on the Services or otherwise by Tripism.

Further, there is no warranty that the services will meet your needs or requirements or the needs or requirements of any other person or the needs or requirements set forth in any documentation. We make no warranties, express, statutory or implied, that the services, including without limitation the application content, functions or materials contained therein, will be timely, secure, accurate, error-free, complete, up-to-date, free of viruses, or uninterrupted. Tripism does not necessarily endorse, support, sanction, encourage or agree with any application content or any user content, and we expressly disclaim any and all representations, warranties and liabilities in connection with any user content or application content. No oral or written information made available by or on behalf of Tripism shall create any warranty.

If applicable law does not allow the exclusion of some or all of the above implied or statutory warranties to apply to you, the above exclusions will apply to you to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

11. Exclusive Remedy and Limitation of Liability

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors and for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

Subject to this Section 11, under no circumstances, including without limitation negligence, will Tripism, its affiliates, or any party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the services be liable for damages or losses, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, even if foreseeable, including without limitation direct, incidental, consequential, indirect, special, or punitive damages, loss of data, business interruption, loss of anticipated savings and direct or indirect lost profits arising out of the terms or your access, use, misuse, or inability to use the services, including without limitation any application content or user content, or any sites linked from the services, however caused, whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, even if Tripism has been advised of the possibility of such damages, or in connection with any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus, or line or system failure. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, Tripism's liability in such jurisdictions shall be limited to the extent permitted by law.

Subject to this Section 11, the maximum aggregate liability of Tripism arising out of or in any way connected to these Terms whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, shall not exceed £50. The existence of one or more claims under these Terms will not increase Tripism's liability.

12. Your Representations and Indemnity

You confirm that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to any User Content submitted by you; that all User Content submitted by you is accurate; and that exploitation of such User Content by Tripism and its other Users, partners, and licensees will not violate these Terms, cause injury to any person or entity, or infringe any third-party rights.

You will indemnify Tripism and its managers, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents (collectively, the "Indemnitees"), against any loss, damage or cost incurred by us arising out of your use of the Tripism Site, including, without limitation, the Services, the Tripism Content or any other information accessible over or through the Tripism Site, including information obtained from linked sites, any User Content submitted by you or your violation of these Terms, our privacy policy or any other laws, regulations and rules. You will also indemnify the Indemnitees against any claims that information or material which you have submitted to us is in violation of any law or in breach of any third party rights (including, but not limited to, claims in respect of defamation, invasion of privacy, breach of confidence, infringement of copyright or infringement of any other intellectual property right). We reserve the right to exclusively defend and control any claims arising from the above and any such indemnification matters and that you will fully cooperate with us in any such defences.

13. Entire Agreement and Severability

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between Tripism and you with respect to the Services, superseding any prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and us. In the event any provision of these Terms is held unenforceable, it will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and will be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision.

14. No Waiver

Our failure to enforce any provisions of the Terms or respond to a breach by you or other parties shall not in any way waive our right to enforce subsequently any terms or conditions of the Terms or to act with respect to similar breaches.

15. Assignment and Binding Effects

You must not assign these Terms or any rights or obligations herein without the prior written consent of Tripism and any attempted assignment in contravention of this provision is null and void and of no force or effect. Tripism has the right to assign these Terms, and any of its rights or obligations herein. These Terms are binding upon each party and its respective successors, heirs, trustees, administrators, executors and permitted assigns.

16. Choice of Law

These Terms are made under and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Any claim or controversy (including any non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or related to these Terms shall be instituted exclusively in the English courts.

17. Separate Terms and General

In connection with your use of the Services, you may be asked to consent to policies or terms and conditions in addition to these Terms. Please read these supplemental policies and terms carefully before making any use of such portions of the Services. Any supplemental terms will not vary or replace these Terms regarding any use of the Services, unless otherwise expressly stated.

Your relationship to Tripism is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other.

No one other than a party to these Terms or their successors and permitted assignees shall have any right to enforce any of its terms.
