  13. TAXES, FEES, AND OTHER COSTS.

    1. With regards to Hotels, state or national sales tax, if applicable is included in the professional fees displayed by us. County, parish, city or other local political subdivisions that add additional amounts to the state or national sales tax, and/or occupancy, convention or like taxes are not included in our professional fees. You may contact the Hotel directly to ascertain the amount of any additional taxes. It is the Hotel’s obligation to report and pay all taxes to the relevant taxing authorities. Resort fees or like fees, if charged by a Hotel which are not required by law to be charged to a purchaser, fees for any amenities that are not listed as being included in a specific room type, such as a mini-refrigerator, roll-away bed, crib, etc. are not included in our professional fees. The Member is responsible for payment of any such additional fees.

  14. HOTEL ROOM COST AVERAGING, HOTEL CANCELLATION FEES, HOTEL DEPOSIT. If a Member has a Hotel Booking of more than one night, the prices displayed on our Site are the total amount for all rooms for the entire duration of the stay. Members should be aware that often Hotels have a different room rate depending on the day of the week and occupancy demand. If a Member fails to cancel a Hotel Room in accordance with our Policy and the Hotel’s policy, the Member should be aware that many Hotels, will charge an amount equal to the first night’s room rate as the Hotel’s Cancellation Fee, and the first night’s room rate may be greater than the average price for the stay.
    Members should also be aware that many Hotels require a deposit at check-in, typically by a credit card, to cover costs that are optional and that you may incur such as room service, in-room movies, etc. Our descriptions of the Hotel on our Site are provided by our suppliers and may or may not specify that a resort fee is charged and/or that a deposit or the amount of a deposit that is required. We always suggest contacting the Hotel and/or checking the Hotel’s website.

  15. SPECIAL HOTEL REQUESTS. We are certainly happy to pass onto the hotel any special requests that a Member requests. However, Hotels usually do not guarantee things such as smoking or non-smoking, a specific floor, room number, view, etc., unless it is explicitly stated in the room rate description.

  16. TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP. The Company has multiple types of Membership, each with its own requirements for an approved Membership. The Membership, (a) may have a Membership Fee (depending on the type of Membership and/or the method used to apply for, and have, a Membership approved), (b) discounts (if any), (c) incentive programs (if any), and (d) payment methods, which are acceptable for Membership, Hotel Confirmations and Services.

    1. General: To obtain such low prices for its Members, Company is severely restricted by its supplier in advertising the prices it offers to its Members. Therefore, NO MEMBER, regardless of the type of Membership may engage in any commercial advertisement of any price for any Service made available to the Member by The Company without the prior written approval of a duly authorized Company official. Nothing, however, prevents a Member from sharing by word of mouth, or an internet post or like format, of what a "good deal" or similar laudatory language they obtained from The Company nor from sharing the specifics of the savings a Member obtained from purchasing Services from Company. Travel Professional Members (all as defined below) shall not advertise Company’s prices without the prior written approval from The Company as stated above.

    2. Master Account: A "Master Account", as defined in Section 1, is required to be established by a Commercial Entity, whether For Profit or a Non-Profit Entity and/or a Governmental Entity (as defined elsewhere in this POLICY) is seeking Membership. A Master Account is an administrative tool for our Site and may not be used for any payment for our professional services. Neither an Individual Member, or a Travel Professional, both as defined elsewhere in this POLICY, is not eligible for a Master Account. An "Applicant" is a natural person who has the legal capacity and actual authority to bind and Commercial Entity, or Governmental Entity to a contractual relationship with The Company. Generally, the person applying for a Master Account should be the person ultimately responsible for handling the travel arrangements for the entity which is applying, or another person whose responsibilities include handling travel arrangements for the applying entity.

      1. To create a "Master Account", each type of Membership that requires a Master Account to be established, must complete, and submit, on the Site, and in a manner set forth on the Site, the application for the type of Membership sought.

      2. The email address entered by the Applicant during the initial request for Membership must use the "Domain Name" of the Commercial Entity’s, Non-Profit Entity’s or Governmental Entity’s email service:

        1. As used in this policy, "Domain Name" shall mean the internet protocol address assigned to the Travel Professional Member by an Internet Service Provider (the "ISP") and which is associated with a "root server", e.g., ".com", ".net", ".org", etc. Using what is referred to as the Domain Name Service ("DNS") the DNS points to an "authoritative server" located in an ISP. Using a process called "name resolution" the Travel Professional Member’s "name" is uniquely associated with a specific IP address.

        2. Using "www.yourcompany.com" as an example, ".com" is the root server, and "yourcompany.com" is the domain name, and "www" is the hostname. The domain name is the organization's identity on the www (world wide web), and the hostname is the name of the web server within that domain. By way of example and not by limitation, if an approved Travel Professional’s website is www.yourcompany.com; then each employee or agent of the Travel Professional Member would have to supply their specific email address using the domain name of the Travel Professional Member, e.g. JaneDoe@yourcompany.com.

        3.

A Seat is essentially the same as a Sub Entity Member (SEM) in that until the Master Account is activated, no SEMs will be activated and are subject to the same policies as SEMs, using the EM’s Master Account email domain name.

Irrespective of which range of the number of SEMs an EM Member elects, the EM shall receive the first ninety (90) days of its initial EM Membership at no cost to the EM, said ninety (90) day period shall be denominated as the "Free Trial Period".

      12. An EM Member may purchase a range of a greater number of SEMs either at the end of its Annual Membership as set forth in elsewhere in this POLICY, or at any point in time during any existing Annual Membership period as set forth elsewhere in this POLICY.

      15. An EM may elect to increase its range in number of SEMs in one of two ways. An EM may elect to:

        1. Provide fourteen (14) or more days prior notice of its desire to increase its number of SEMs before the end of its then current Annual Membership period using the Contact Us function of the Site, indicating that the EM wishes the increased number of seats to become effective on the first day following the conclusion of its existing Annual Membership. Using this method, the increased number of SEMs, and paying for an increased number of SEMs greater than the range of SEMs for which it is currently paying, then upon payment of the increased Annual Membership Fee on or before the expiration of its then current Annual Membership Period, the increased number of SEMs shall be available to the EM upon the first day following the expiration of its current Annual Membership, or

        2. Provide fourteen (14) or more days prior notice of its desire to increase its number of SEMs during its Annual Membership period, and the date upon which the EM wishes to have access to a specific increase in the number of SEMs, and to pay an additional amount for said additional SEMs, if such number of SEMs exceeds the range of SEMs the EM paid for during its then current Annual Membership by using the Contact Us function of the Site. In the event EM chooses the options in this Section III(L)(xv)(2) the cost of the additional range of SEMs shall be prorated as set forth as defined elsewhere in this POLICY.

        3. The calculation of the pro-rata credit shall be as follows:

          1. Company shall first determine how many months the EM has had full access to the Site beginning with the either the end of a Free Trial period of its first Annual Membership, or if said EM has already had the benefit of a Free Trial in a previous year prior to the current Annual Membership, the beginning date of its current Annual Membership period. The use of so much as a single day in any given month, during the EM’s then existing Annual Membership, shall be calculated as a full month. The determination set forth in this subsection shall be the "Beginning Date".

          2. The ending date which The Company shall utilize to determine how many months of the current Annual Membership the EM has used for the purposes of calculation the proration, shall be the date and time, upon which Company sends an email to the EM advising EM that all necessary steps have been completed so that the EM may begin using the increased range of the number of SEMs requested by the EM. The use of so much as a single day or any portion thereof until the EM has access to the increased range of SEMs shall be counted as a full month. The determination set forth in this Section shall be the "Ending Date".

          3. Company shall then determine the number of months between the Beginning Date and the Ending Date, as set forth as defined elsewhere in this POLICY. The determination as set forth herein shall be "Months Used"

          4. The number of Months Used shall be subtracted from twelve (12) months with said result being the number of "Credit Months".

          5. The USD amount for the Annual Membership that the EM previously purchased from Company PRIOR to the increased range of SEMs to be purchased by the EM shall be divided by twelve (12). The result of such division shall be rounded up to the next whole USD and shall be the "Monthly Average".

          6. The Monthly Average shall be multiplied by the "Credit Months", and the USD amount yielded shall be subtracted from the Annual Membership Fee the EM shall pay for the increased range in the number of SEMs requested by the EM.

          7. Any language in this Policy to the contrary notwithstanding, the three (3) free months used during a Free Trial Period shall not be included in the computation of Credit Months since the EM did not pay anything to Company for the Free Trial Period. If the EM desires to increase the range of SEMs before the conclusion of a Free Trial Period, The Company, upon reasonable prior notice shall attempt to make the additional SEMs available and the Annual Membership Fee payable to Company shall be based upon the range of SEMs the EM had available to it upon the conclusion of the Free Trial Period. An EM may purchase any Service(s) from Company using a credit or debit card or Bitcoin. Any other language in this Policy to the contrary notwithstanding, if more than one (1) person is authorized by the EM to make purchases of Services, then each such person shall use the same login credentials furnished by us to the EM.

      16. Unless we post a notice to the contrary on the Site at some future date, if an EM uses Bitcoin, as a Payment Method, the EM will receive a discount of the USD amount on each purchase of our Service(s) where Bitcoin was used as the payment method.

      17. The term "employee" and/or "agent" as related to who may be given a Seat shall be broadly construed to include officers, directors, owners, employees whether temporary, permanent, full time or part-time, and independent contractors but only when acting on behalf of the EM so long as such person has an email address with the Domain Name of the EM.

      18. The Site will provide information by email only to the email address first furnished by the Applicant when requesting to become an Entity Master Account Member. This may include but may not be limited to how to proceed if you failed to submit the requested documentation in the requisite time frame, and/or any additional documentation that will be needed on which Company will base its decision to approve an Entity Member Master Account.

      19. Revenue Band Rewards.

The "Net Revenue" shall include the gross USD amount received by Company from the Entity Member’s Master Account’s SEMs aggregated together (the "Aggregate) for Direct Services provided to, and paid for by, the Entity Member’s Master Account’s SEMs in the Aggregate (the "Gross Revenue") less the sum of any refunds, chargebacks, credits, loss of commissions or like returns made by Company for Direct Services to said Master Account Member’s SEMs in the Aggregate (the "Calculated Refund").

        2. Initially, Net Revenue shall be calculated commencing at 12:01am on January 1, 2018 and ending at 12 midnight on December 31, 2018. Thereafter, Net Revenue for an Entity Master Member shall be computed for the period beginning at 12:01 am on January 1 of each subsequent Year and ending December 31st at 12 midnight of the same Year (hereinafter a "Calendar Year"). Further, said Net Revenue shall be computed on a cash accounting basis for the Gross Sales paid to Company during the aforementioned time period less the Calculated Refund. Net Revenue earned in one Calendar Year may NOT be carried over into any subsequent Calendar Year for the purposes of determining Net Revenue.

        3. If in ANY given Calendar Year, an Entity Master Account Member’s SEMs generate Net Revenue in an amount sufficient to qualify for a pricing discount as set forth in the table of revenue bands and associated Incentives for such band, then their discount shall be in effect for the remainder of the subsequent Calendar Year but will occur ONLY if the Entity Master Account Member notifies us, as set forth in Section 4 below, AND the discount will commence on the date in the subsequent Calendar Year once we have been able to determine that the Entity Master Account is, in fact, eligible for the pricing discount pursuant to Section 4, below. A pricing discount pursuant to Net Revenue shall never be longer in duration than one (1) subsequent Calendar year at a time. At, or near the end of the current Calendar, or as soon as practicable after the end of the just concluded Calendar Year, the Entity Master Account Member shall have to use the Contact Us function to notify us if they are eligible for a pricing discount, and then to allow us to verify the Net Revenue, pursuant to Section 4 below, for any pricing discount for the subsequent Calendar Year.

        4. For an Entity Master Account Member to qualify for a discount, for a subsequent Calendar Year, it is the Entity Master Account Member’s obligation to contact us, each Year, using the Contact Us function on the Site to inform us that they believe they qualify for a pricing discount. We shall have thirty calendar days from the receipt of such request for a discount, and if approved, the discount shall be approved effective as of the first day of the month after the end of the thirty (30) day period that Company uses to verify that the Entity Master Account qualifies for a discount.

        5. The discount rate applies ONLY to the Net Revenue generated by Direct Services and DOES NOT include any Net Revenue for Indirect Services (including, but not limited to, activities, flights, events and travel insurance).

Once the Commercial Entity or other entity meeting the requirements to be an Entity Master Account Member has been approved then the person designated to manage the account will receive administrative log in credentials to manage the database of persons who will be using a Seat and an email link for such person to send to those persons who will be using a Seat. Each person that will be using a Seat, will then use that link to enter some basic information that must include an email address with the same Domain Name as that used by the approved Entity Master Account, click on the Activation Link, and then the individual will automatically have a Site web page open welcoming them to the Site.

Proof of such exemption, such as furnishing a copy of the IRS (501)(c)(3) approval granting non-profit status or such other documentation that The Company deems in its sole discretion to demonstrate that the entity is a non-profit entity may be required (the "Proof"). NP applications who have submitted documents to the IRS seeking approval as a non-profit entity but who have not received Proof shall not be eligible for NP Membership unless or until they have the requisite proof.

      1. There shall be no Annual Membership Fee for an approved NP Master Account, nor for any SEM’s, which are unlimited in number. It is unlikely that The Company will change its position of NO MEMBERSHIP FEES and an unlimited number of SEM’s. If The Company should ever change its position in this regard, NP Master Account Members and their associated SEM’s will be advised of any such change, with prior notice. So, our attorneys have made us include this language that The Company does reserve the right, with prior notice if any type of Membership Fee of any type is ever to be charged in the future. The Company highly values the important work of Non-Profit organizations and our Company core value of recognizing, in our own way, how greatly we value the work of Non-Profit organizations.

Personal email addresses MAY NOT be used in the Application to create an NP Master Account and/or any SEMs of the NP entity. See elsewhere in this POLICY for more information about domain names and examples and for information about a "Master Account" and/or SEMs.

      5. Information may be provided on the Site or in an email to the Applicant as to how long it will typically take to approve or disapprove an application for an NP Master Account, the amount of time the Applicant must complete and submit the documentation beginning from the date it was sent by The Company, and other specifics regarding the application and application approval process.

Further, said Net Revenue shall be computed on a cash accounting basis for the Gross Sales paid to Company during the aforementioned time period less the Calculated Refund. Net Revenue earned in one Calendar Year may NOT be carried over into any subsequent Calendar Year for the purposes of determining Net Revenue.

      11. If in ANY given Calendar Year, an NP Master Account Member’s SEMs generate Net Revenue in an amount sufficient to qualify for a pricing discount as set forth in the table of revenue bands and associated Incentives for such band, then their discount shall be in effect for the remainder of the subsequent Calendar Year but will occur ONLY if the NP Master Account Member notifies us, as set forth in Section 4 below, AND the discount will commence on the date in the subsequent Calendar Year once we have been able to determine that the NP Master Account is, in fact, eligible for the pricing discount pursuant to Section 4, below. A pricing discount pursuant to Net Revenue shall never be longer in duration than one (1) subsequent Calendar year at a time. At, or near the end of the current Calendar, or as soon as practicable after the end of the just concluded Calendar Year, the NP Master Account Member shall have to use the Contact Us function to notify us if they are eligible for a pricing discount, and then to allow us to verify the Net Revenue, pursuant to Section xiii below, for any pricing discount for the subsequent Calendar Year.

      12. For an NP Master Account Member to qualify for a discount, for a subsequent Calendar Year, it is the NP Master Account Member’s obligation to contact us, each Year, using the Contact Us function on the Site to inform us that they believe they qualify for a pricing discount. We shall have thirty calendar days from the receipt of such request for a discount, and if approved, the discount shall be approved effective as of the first day of the month after the end of the thirty (30) day period that Company uses to verify that the NP Master Account qualifies for a discount.

      13. Each NP Master Account SEM must use an email with the same domain name as that used by the approved NP Master Account.

      14. NP Master Account Member’s SEMs may use only debit/credit card or Bitcoin for the payment for services.

      15. As used in this policy, "Domain Name" shall mean the internet protocol address assigned to the NP Master Account Member by an Internet Service Provider (the "ISP") and which is associated with a "root server", e.g., ".com", ".

    14. A Government Membership (hereinafter a GOVM Membership) is only available to:

      1. To any branch of the government of the United States of America Federal Government, including the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches (hereinafter each a "Branch" and collectively the "Branches"), and to each Office, Division, Bureau, Department or like organizational unit of each such Branch, and

      2. To each of the fifty (50) States of the United States, the District of Columbia and to each of the five (5) territories of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, in the Marianas archipelago in the western North Pacific Ocean; and American Samoa and the Branches of each, and to each Office, Division, Bureau, Department or like organizational unit of each such Branch, and to

      3. The county, parish, city, town, borough, township, village or like unit of local government created by each of the States and territories enumerated as defined elsewhere in this POLICY.

      4. To apply for a GOVM Master Account, only very infrequently need Additional Documentation, just the application information requested on the Site. However, on rare occasions, the name of the GOVM entity seeking a GOVM Master account may not be self-evident so it may be necessary to contact the Applicant via email and request the Applicant’s assistance in verifying that the Applicant is, in fact, eligible as a governmental entity, since we REQUIRE NO MEMBERSHIP FEE for a GOVM or any of its SEMs, there are "bad actors" who may be a for-profit Commercial Entity who has chosen a name that implies that the Commercial Entity is a governmental entity.

      5. There shall be no Annual Membership Fee for an approved GOVM Master Account, nor for any SEMs. It is unlikely that The Company will change its position of NO MEMBERSHIP FEES and an unlimited number of SEMs.
        If The Company should ever change its position in this regard, GOVM Master Account Members and their associated SEM’s will be advised of any such change, with prior notice. So, our attorneys have made us include this language: that The Company does reserve the right, with prior notice if any type of Membership Fee of any type is ever to be charged in the future. The Company highly values the important work of government. organizations and our Company management are aware that many who travel on governmental business often either pay for the entire trip out of pocket and must wait extended periods of time. Likewise, we know that GOVM workers are often confronted with extremely low reimbursements rates. For many, the GOVM worker loses money to take a trip on governmental business.
        We are also aware that governmental agencies are often impacted very negatively due to lack of funds. So, we hope our "NO MEMBERSHIP FEES" helps the GOVM agency to save funds to use elsewhere, and to say, "THANK YOU" to our governmental workers!!!

      6. No individuals, nor Commercial Entities are eligible for a GOVM account, including for-profit Commercial Entities operating under contract with a government agency.

      7. An Applicant seeking Membership as a GOVM Member must complete, and submit, on the Site, and in a manner set forth on the Site, the application for a GOVM Master Member. The Applicant must have the legal capacity and legal authority to enter into a binding agreement (this TERMS AND CONDITIONS POLICY) between The Company as a Member.

Personal email addresses MAY NOT be used in the Application to create a GOVM Master Account and/or any SEMs of the GOVM entity. See Sections 16(B)(i and ii) for more information about domain names and examples and Sections 1(X) and 1(A14) for information about a "Master Account" and/or SEMs, respectively.

      9. Information may be provided on the Site or in an email to the Applicant as to how long it will typically take to approve or disapprove an application for an GOVM Master Account, the amount of time the Applicant must complete and submit the documentation beginning from the date it was sent by The Company, and other specifics regarding the application and application approval process.

    15. An Individual Membership (hereinafter an "Individual Membership")

      1. An Individual Member is a natural person who does not qualify for any of the other types of Membership but seeks to be able to access the Site for personal, recreational and/or leisure travel Services. A potential Individual Member may seek to become approved as such by the information as set forth on the applicable Site page for an Individual Membership application.

      2. If the potential IM indicates that he or she will be paying the applicable Individual Membership Fee by either APPLE PAY®, a registered mark of Apple, Inc. or ANDROID PAY®, and at the time of submission of said application pays the applicable Membership Fee using either APPLE PAY® or ANDROID PAY®, then the Individual Membership will automatically be approved, the Login Credentials activated and the Individual Member may use any and all Member functions on the Site immediately upon receipt of an email from Company to IM advising the IM that their IM membership has been activated.

      3. If the potential IM indicates that he or she will be paying the applicable Individual Membership Fee by credit or debit card, the IM should be aware, that for your protection and ours, we must verify that the credit or debit card does, in fact, belong to the person applying for the IM Membership. This will significantly delay the approval process for your IM Account to become active. The verification process is described as defined elsewhere in this POLICY.
        So, if you need an IM account activated immediately, PLEASE USE APPLE PAY® or ANDROID PAY®. Once you have established either an APPLE PAY® or ANDROID PAY® account, you can return to our Site, and establish an account with us and use your newly acquired APPLE PAY® or ANDROID PAY® account to pay your Membership Fee to us. This will then automatically activate your IM account with us and it also automatically activate your Login Credentials with us (don’t forget to write the Username and Password you chose when creating your account with us).

      4. If the IM uses Bitcoin as a payment method for any Direct Services purchased directly from Company, then said IM shall receive discount for The Company’s Direct Services.

      5. Company may offer Individual Membership for various time frames and each time frame shall be associated with a different Membership Fee. By way of example, Company may have a quarterly membership period of ninety (90) calendar days, a semi-annual Membership Fee of one hundred eighty (180) calendar days, annual membership period of three hundred sixty-five (365) days, any "leap year" notwithstanding. Company may also have an IM Trial Membership as more fully set forth in SECTION II(16) (N)(xxii) below; such plan may also be referenced as a "7 day plan" or by similar terminology, on the Site.

      6. An IM Membership time frame shall commence upon which the date Company sends the IM Member an email notifying the IM that their IM Membership has been activated, and each IM Membership time frame shall end at 12 midnight of the last day of the applicable time frame (as set forth as defined elsewhere in this POLICY.

      7. The process of renewal of an IM Membership shall be as set forth on the Site, provided however, that all applicable portions of this Section shall apply.

      8. If the Applicant for Individual Membership finds the price for an Individual Membership for a given period acceptable, then the Applicant should complete all the information on the Site to apply for an Individual Membership.

      9. If the Applicant elects to pay using a credit or debit card, the Applicant should enter the requested card information. This credit/debit card information IS NOT maintained on our Site; it is only entered and stored on our secure payment processor’s website.

      10. Company shall then issue a random credit amount (the "Random Credit") to that same credit/debit card in an amount which is no greater than Two Dollars ($2.00) USD. The Applicant for an Individual Membership should then check online or by phone with his/her credit/debit card issuer to see if this Random Credit has posted to that credit/debit card account, and when it does, the Individual Membership Applicant should make note of the EXACT amount of said Random Credit.

      11. The Applicant should then continue to check his or her credit or debit card transactions, and when the Applicant sees said refund from Company in an amount less than Two Dollars ($2.00) USD to the debit or credit card used, the Applicant shall log back into Company’s site and verify the exact amount that was refunded to the Applicant’s credit or debit card account. Upon successful verification to The Company the exact amount that was charged or debited, the Applicant’s account will be approved instantly.
        Provided however, the foregoing notwithstanding, as a method of combating credit/debit card fraud, if the Applicant is unsuccessful in providing the exact amount refunded after 3 (three) attempts, then the Individual Membership will be permanently closed and the remaining amount (the initial applicable full payment for the Individual Membership less the amount already refunded) will be refunded to the credit or debit card that was charged for the Individual Membership.

      12. Anytime an IM who used his/her credit or debit card to have his/her first approval as an IM wishes or needs to change the credit/debit card that the IM will use to purchase our Services, or renew the IM Membership Fee, the Member should use the Contact Us function. Please DO NOT enter ANY new credit/debit card information at this time, just tell us that you need to change the debit or credit card. Upon receipt of your Contact Us message notifying us that you need to change the debit or credit card, our Customer Service will respond back to you with the details of how to make such a change. The amount for the applicable Individual Membership period may vary depending on certain referral and/or promotional plan(s) offered by Company. The cost of an Individual Membership for any Applicant will be displayed to the Applicant prior to the purchase.

      13. Other than for an IM Trial Membership, when an IM’s account is approved and activated, by default, the "Auto-renew" function is turned on. "Auto-renew" means that at the end of your current Membership Term (the length of the Membership period you most recently chose, e.g., six (6) months, your Membership will renew for the same Membership Term (length of Membership) at the price displayed on the payment page. which you paid for the Membership Term that is expiring. See also number (3) below.

        1. If you do not wish to Auto-renew, you may use the menu on the Site to turn auto-renew off if you do so by at least two (2) Business Days prior to the day upon which your Membership is set to expire.

        2. If you timely turn off the Auto-renew function, your Membership will expire at the end of your current Membership Term. However, if you turned the Auto-renew function off, and you later decide that you again want an Individual Membership, you will then have to pay the then prevailing price for an Individual Membership, which may have increased since you last purchased a Membership. If you pay with the same debit/credit card you used for the previous Membership, your Membership will become active automatically. However, if you wish to use a different debit/credit card, you will have to go through the same verification process described in Subsections (x) and (xi) above.

        3. If you received a Promo Code and used the Promo Code to reduce the price of your Individual Membership, then you will see on the webpage where you entered the Promo Code, the amount by which your Membership Fee was decreased from the full cost of your Membership as stated in the Promo Code.
          In addition, on that same screen, you will see what the Auto-renew price will be if you leave Auto-renew turned on, which will be the full price for the same Membership Term you chose when you used your Promo Code. If your credit or debit card is not declined at the time of Auto-renew, then you will pay the Individual Membership price that you saw earlier on the page where you entered your Promo Code.
          If, however, you have Auto-renew turned on, but your credit or debit card is declined at the time we attempt to process your Auto-renew, then to renew your Membership, you would have to pay the then prevailing price for the Membership Term you initially choose, which may have increased from that which was displayed on the screen at the time you used your Promo Code. A Promo Code may not be re-used.

        4. If Auto-renew is on, your debit or credit card will be charged on the first day following the expiration of your most recent Membership Term.

      14. Complete credit/debit card information IS NOT maintained or stored on our Site.

      15. If an approved Individual Member uses Bitcoin to pay for Service(s), then the Individual Member will receive a discount of the USD amount on each purchase of our Service(s) where Bitcoin was used as the payment method. Company reserves the right, upon prior notice either on the Site and/or by email at Company’s sole discretion to delete or change the discount for the use of Bitcoin.

      16. Company may, in its sole discretion, for those Individual Members who have paid for their initial Individual Membership offer said Individual Members the opportunity to have the Fee for their Membership automatically renewed at the end of their then current Membership, or to be reminded that their Individual Membership is about to expire.

      17. Company reserves the right, at any time, to change the price or prices of any type of Individual Membership for either the initial or renewal of an Individual Membership. Company shall not increase or decrease an Individual Membership Fee during the existing term of an Individual Membership.

      18. No refund, in whole or in part, shall be made once an IM Membership is paid.

      19. Members, of any type Membership or whose Membership has lapsed or other persons who are not Members of any type or are not Lapsed Members are all considered Users of the Site who may enter the Site to search, and book, airfare through our Indirect Service Providers who are airfare flight aggregator(s) and shall pay for said airfare by being redirected to the airfare flight aggregator’s payment page.

    5. CANCELLATION, REFUND, AND BITCOIN POLICY:

      1. Definitions:

        1. For Hotels, Cancellation Period shall mean the time period found for the Hotel you have selected, by looking under the column labeled "Policy" and going beneath that column and clicking upon "Rates and Policies". YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CLICK UPON RATES AND POLICIES; in addition to the foregoing, it will display room availability for the type of room you have selected; pricing per night (which may vary for different days of the week if you selected a stay of more than one night), and a total cost for a Confirmed Reservation for the date(s) you have selected. For all other Services, the Cancellation Period shall be as set forth in any confirmation that we, or a Service Provider, have sent you via the email address you have on file for your Membership. Notwithstanding any other language to the contrary in this Policy, any time or time period, date, and time zone for the cancellation of a Hotel Reservation shall be the local time of the Hotel. For the cancellation of any other Direct Service it shall be the time, time zone and date as set forth in Section E(i)(1) above unless otherwise stated on the confirmation sent to you. Any time, time zone and date related to the cancellation of any Indirect Service shall be as set forth in the confirmation received for the purchase of any Indirect Service.

        2. In your Confirmed Reservation from us to you, the Cancellation Period begins at the time your Confirmed Reservation is emailed by us to you, and ends as of the check-in date and time of the Hotel at the location of the Hotel designated in your Confirmed Reservation. By way of example, and not limitation, if your Hotel stay begins on August 11, and your Confirmed Reservation states you have a seventy-two (72) hour cancellation period, and the Hotel’s check in time is 11:00AM (all Hotel check in times and dates are the local times and dates where the where the Hotel is located), then you would have seventy-two (72) hours prior to 11:00AM on August 11 (measured by the Hotel’s local date and time zone unless stated otherwise in the cancellation policy on your confirmed reservation) to cancel. The Cancellation Period is NOT measured by the Member’s local date, and time zone.

        3. Cancellation and Refund Policy shall mean this Section III(1)(E) of this Terms and Conditions.

        4. Chargeback shall mean any attempt of any nature by Member to seek a credit or refund from a third party including, but not limited to, a credit or debit card issuer, processor, and merchant bank or like entity, Bitcoin or a Bitcoin wallet where we, or a Service Provider, have provided the Services in accordance with the Terms and Conditions or the terms and conditions of the Service Provider, as applicable.

        5. The Confirmed Reservation for a specific Hotel or Hotels provided by us to you is based upon the information you supplied to us in requesting the Confirmed Reservation. When we send you a Confirmed Reservation, the Confirmed Reservation will specify the specific Cancellation Policy applicable to that Confirmed Reservation if it was not listed under the Rates & Policies listing for the Hotel on our Site at the time you Booked your Confirmed Reservation Please, and this is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT; THE CANCELLATION POLICY IS THAT SHOWN WHEN YOU BOOK A CONFIRMED RESERVATION; NOT AT SOME LATER POINT IN TIME (SINCE THESE HOTEL POLICIES CAN CHANGE FROM HOUR TO HOUR OR EVEN MORE FREQUENTLY AS HOTELS RECEIVE MORE BOOKINGS). IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO MAKE SURE, IF YOU HAVE STARTED THE PROCESS TO BOOK A HOTEL OR ANY OTHER SERVICE, BUT WERE THEN INTERRUPTED, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE CANCELLATION POLICY IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO CHECKOUT!

        6. "No Show". Under the cancellation policy on our Site, "No Show" means that if for any reason you are not going to be able to arrive at the Hotel by its stated check-in time, it is very important that you call the Hotel directly and advise them that your arrival will be delayed. Each Hotel has its own policy in this regard as to how long they will continue to hold your Confirmed Reservation and what the no-show penalty is. In addition, we always recommend that EACH MEMBER always check with a Hotel, even if they do not specify their "No Show" penalty and/or any other Service Provider, e.g., an aggregate flight supplier, a rental car company, etc. as to what their policies are in the event you are unable to arrive by the time the Service Provider has listed as your expected arrival time.

        7. Payment shall mean the payment, in full, irrespective of manner or form used by you to pay us for the Confirmed Reservation. No Confirmed Reservation shall be issued unless payment in full has been received by us.

        8. Refund shall mean a payment by us, if any, to you, for a cancellation of a Confirmed Reservation where such cancellation by you is in complete compliance with our Terms and Conditions. The Refund amount shall be the full amount paid to us for the Confirmed Reservation subject to Section III(E)(ii) immediately below if you used Bitcoin as your payment method.

      2. Cancellation, Bitcoin, Refund.

        1. We reserve the right to cancel your Confirmed Reservation if our Service Provider that provided us the pricing information for your Confirmed Reservation provided us with incorrect pricing information. In such a case, your payment for the Confirmed Reservation will automatically be refunded in USD or its then Bitcoin equivalent and you will be notified by email. In no event shall we be liable in any other manner than to refund your funds paid to us if we cancel said Confirmed Reservation because of incorrect pricing information supplied to us by one of our Service Providers. Please see also Section V(4).

        2. Whether your Confirmed Reservation qualifies for a refund is governed by this Terms and Conditions policy, or the terms and conditions of a Service Provider as applicable, regardless of whether you pay with Bitcoin or any other payment method. To receive a refund (if we grant one) on a Confirmed Reservation paid to us with Bitcoin, you will have to follow certain procedures to claim your refund (if you paid one of our Service Providers directly, their terms and conditions control their acceptance of Bitcoin, and refunds of any type):

          1. A valid email address and your Bitcoin wallet address are required for refunds. Due to the nature of the way Bitcoin transactions are handled, we must process refunds related to Bitcoin payments manually. There are two steps you must take:

            1. You must cancel the reservation by logging into your account, and go to "Reservations" and under Reservations click on "Confirm Reservations" and then click on "Cancel", and

            2. Then contact us, using the Contact Us function and choose the drop-down menu labeled "Billing" and provide us your confirmation number for your Confirmed Reservation and your Bitcoin address. If you do not know your Bitcoin address, you will need to contact your Bitcoin wallet issuer.

          2. If you fail to send us your correct Bitcoin wallet address within (30) days after you cancelled your reservation, we will be unable to refund your Bitcoin.

          3. Refunds, if any, for Bitcoin transactions are issued for the then current USD value of the amount of Bitcoin you original paid at the time you originally paid, and refunds are issued only as set forth in this Policy. Your refund will be issued in Bitcoin for that USD value, less any applicable fees, including any cancellation fees. Your refund will be converted from USD to Bitcoin based on an exchange rate set by our payment processor at the time we initiate the refund. You acknowledge that if the value of Bitcoin against USD has risen since the time of your purchase, you will receive less in Bitcoin than you might otherwise have received had you paid via a payment method other than Bitcoin (e.g., a debit or credit card).

        3. No Refund shall be made if the Member stays for a shorter time period than that set forth in the Confirmed Reservation.

        4. No Refund shall be made if the Member cancels directly with the Hotel.

        5. Under no circumstances shall a Member attempt to. or receive, any credit or payment, whether in whole or in part, of any funds paid by us to Hotel. Member understands and agrees that we will take any, and all, steps necessary, including legal action, and including without limitation, recovery of attorney’s fees, legal costs, other fees and any other damages to which we are entitled, to recover such credit or payment.

        6. Member understands and agrees that we will dispute any Chargeback to the fullest possible legal extent, including but not limited to, the commencement of legal action including without limitation, recovery of attorney’s fees, legal costs, other fees and any other damages to which we are entitled, to recover such credit, or reversal of Payment to the Member and in addition, we may choose, in our sole discretion, to report to the credit/debit card issuer any fraudulent Chargeback.

        7. If a Member is entitled to a refund on a Confirmed Reservation, and used a Coupon toward the payment for that Confirmed Reservation, the Member will be refunded in USD less the USD value of the Coupon used, and the Coupon that was used will be reinstated. By way of example, and not limitation, John had a Confirmed Reservation where the Hotel room rate was $100.00USD and John used a Coupon valued at $20.00USD (with John paying us $80.00USD). John would be refunded $80.00USD (the amount he paid us) and John’s Coupon valued at $20.00 would be reinstated for use in the future, regardless of what our API information displays.

      2. You will have, after our Checkout Page, an option that will allow you to click and be connected with one of our Commercial Advertisers who specializes in trip insurance. We never endorse, recommend or warrant the product or service provided by one of our Commercial Advertisers but we conduct our own due diligence, as should you, on any Commercial Advertiser. Of course, you are certainly free to forgo Trip Insurance or use a different company to provide Trip Insurance. If you are contemplating using another company for Trip Insurance, we certainly suggest that you check out their customer satisfaction ratings and other due diligence for such other Company. In any event, Trip Insurance from a reputable insurance has been, in our experience, a safety net for a very reasonable price.

      3. You should also be aware that if your purchase Trip Insurance from our Commercial Advertiser, we do receive a commission from that Commercial Advertiser for your purchase from our Commercial Advertiser.
