THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS, AMONG OTHER THINGS, AN ARBITRATION PROVISION CONTAINING A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Cruiseable allows you, Users and other third parties to post or otherwise make available at the Site or Application various materials, including articles, reviews, comments, links, photos, pictures, videos, recordings, and others forms of text, sound or graphics (“Content”). The Content posted or made available by you should be specifically referred to as the “User Content.”
You retain rights to your User Content and you are solely responsible for it.
Notwithstanding the above, you grant Cruiseable a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, re-post, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute User Content on the Site (including sites of a successor entity), Application and other third party websites or applications for the purposes directly or indirectly connected to operating Site or Services including, among others, providing, improving, promoting, developing, or facilitating Services by us and using the Services by you and other Users.
The Site or Application may contain posts, discussion forums, reviews, comment threads, galleries or other forums in which you or third parties may post Content, including reviews of Services, business partners’ services, and personal experiences, for instance: reviews of your cruises or travels ("Interactive Areas"). If Cruiseable provides such Interactive Areas, you are solely responsible for your use of such Interactive Areas and you use them at your own risk. By using any Interactive Areas, you expressly agree not to post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create or otherwise publish through the Site or Application any of the following:
You acknowledge that the Content appearing on the Site is protected by worldwide copyright laws and other applicable laws and regulations. Cruiseable is either the owner of the Content, including all copyrights and other ownership and intellectual property rights therein, or has been granted the right to use the Content by its owner(s). Content may not be used, copied, reproduced, modified, distributed, posted or transmitted in any manner, other than as specifically provided for herein, without the express prior written permission of Cruiseable in each instance.
Cruiseable grants you a limited license only, without any transfer of ownership rights, to use the Content in the scope restricted to posting reviews, sharing your cruise and travel experiences and engaging in other discussions in Interactive Areas and social networks with regards to the Services and Bookings including cruise lines, cruise ships, activities and venues, all subject to all the same limitations applicable to posting your User Content in Interactive Areas provided for in the preceding paragraph.
Your use of Content is furthermore subject to the following conditions: you may not alter the Content in any way; you may not use the Content in any manner that implies that you are Cruiseable or that Cruiseable has sponsored or endorsed you or your business, product or activities; you may not use the Content in any manner which Cruiseable, in its sole discretion, determines to be undermining or disparaging Cruiseable, its affiliates or business partners including the Site, Services and products. You cannot use the Content for your commercial purpose or in connection with the products or services of a competitor of Cruiseable. Your use of Content must include any logos, copyrights, service marks, trademarks or other intellectual property markings that appear in the Content in its unaltered form. Any use of the Content by you must be in accordance with all applicable national, foreign or local laws, statutes, rules and regulations.
Nothing in these Terms shall restrict other legal rights we may have to Content, for example under other licenses or as a result of separate agreements between us including, among others, agreements containing work-for hire clauses.
Cruiseable takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Content posted, stored or uploaded by you or any third party, or for any loss or damage thereto, nor is Cruiseable liable for any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography or profanity you may encounter. Cruiseable is not liable for any statements, representations or Content provided by its users in any Interactive Area or on social media.
Although we have no obligation to screen, edit or monitor any of the Content posted to or distributed through any Interactive Area, we reserve the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen, translate or edit without notice any Content (including User Content) posted or stored on the Site or Application or, to the extent possible on our social media profiles, at any time and for any reason, or to have such actions performed by third parties on its behalf, and you are solely responsible for creating backup copies of and replacing any Content you post or store on the Site or Application at your sole cost and expense.
Any use of the Content or Interactive Areas in violation of the Terms may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to use the Interactive Areas and/or the Site.
Parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. You can find some current providers of such protections at http://www.getnetwise.org/.
We provide you with the ability to search for, select, reserve and book cruises, air tickets, accommodations, rent cars and buy trip insurance with third-party suppliers (“Bookings”) either through the Site and Application or after redirecting you to a website of our business partner. An entity that provides the Bookings shall be hereinafter referred to as “Bookings Third Party” or “BTP.” We may also use the APIs (application programming interfaces) of our affiliated partners to facilitate a purchase or reservation of a Booking on the Site or Application. In order to use the Services and purchase or reserve Bookings you must have a Cruiseable Account.
You agree that you will use the Services to make legitimate reservations or purchases of Bookings for you or others for whom you are legally authorized to act. Any false or fraudulent reservation or purchase is prohibited, and any User who attempts such a reservation may have his or her Cruiseable Account terminated. If you have a Cruiseable Account, you will safeguard your Cruiseable Account information and will supervise and be completely responsible for any use of your Cruiseable Account by anyone other than you.
We will not interfere with your reservations and purchases of Bookings arbitrarily, but we reserve the right to cancel or not process a reservation or purchase of a Booking because of certain extenuating circumstances, such as when a reservation is no longer available or when we have reasonable cause to suspect that a reservation request may be fraudulent. We also reserve the right to take steps to verify your identity to process your reservation.
Cruiseable serves as an intermediary between Users and Booking Third Parties (BTPs) and does not provide or own any Bookings, including transportation services or accommodations. Although Cruiseable displays information about properties owned by BTPs and facilitates Booking reservations and purchases with certain BTPs and affiliate sites, such actions, unless otherwise explicitly stated, do not in any way imply, suggest, or constitute our sponsorship or approval of any BTP, or any affiliation between Cruiseable and a BTP. Although Users may rate and review particular properties based on their own experiences, Cruiseable does not endorse or recommend the products or services of any BTP. You agree that Cruiseable is not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of information it obtains from BTPs and displays on its Site or Application.
The Site may link you to BTP sites or other websites that Cruiseable does not operate or control. For further information, please refer to the “Links to third-party sites” section below.
The Site and Application may contain hyperlinks to websites operated by parties other than Cruiseable. Such hyperlinks are provided for your reference only. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy or other practices of such websites. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from the Site or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. Our inclusion of hyperlinks to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators. In some cases you may be asked by a third party site to link your profile on Cruiseable to a profile on another third party site. Choosing to do so is purely optional, and the decision to allow this information to be linked can be disabled (with the third party site) at any time.
Cruiseable displays photos, videos and other material from a number of independent third parties, including cruise lines, tourism organizations and photographers. All of these businesses, organizations and individuals retain their copyright to their works, and Cruiseable makes no claim over such works.
Cruiseable respects the intellectual property rights of others and we expect you to do the same. It is our policy, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, to quickly remove infringing material brought to our attention and to disable and/or terminate the Cruiseable Accounts of Users who infringe or are charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.
