  • Your Submissions are Public.  The Services are designed to allow users to post information pertaining to their location, availability, and Experiences, and to access information posted by other users pertaining to their locations, availability and Experiences.  As such, any posts, comments, suggestions for improvement, or other messages, either provided to Tugolo directly or by posting through the Services (each, a “Submission”), is considered non-confidential and may be disseminated or used by Tugolo and by any third party accessing the Services, for any purpose whatsoever.  All Submissions made by you are solely your responsibility, and it is your responsibility to ensure that your Submissions do not contain personal or private information, as defined by applicable law, either belonging to you or to any other third party, unless the person owning the personal or private information has provided their specific consent to such use.  Tugolo has no liability whatsoever related to any Submission made or accessed by you.    This provision does NOT apply to personal information that is subject to Tugolo’s Privacy Policy (including your registration information) except to the extent that you make such personal information publicly available on or through the Services.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tugolo reserves the right to remove any Submission from the Services if such Submission violates this Agreement or any other written policy or terms of use published by Tugolo from time to time, or is otherwise objectionable, as determined by Tugolo, in its sole discretion.
  • Experiences are At Your Risk.  It is your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any content available through the Services, or obtained from a third party linked site, and it is solely your responsibility to provide your Local Friend or Traveler (as applicable) with any pertinent information relating to your offer or acceptance of an Experience, whether through the Services or otherwise, such as travel requirements or risks.  You are responsible for viewing and abiding by the privacy statements and terms of use posted at any third party website accessed through the Services and/or any other agreements entered into between you and such third party.  You specifically acknowledge that Experiences may be subject to variables that are outside of the control of Tugolo, the Local Friend or the Traveler (as applicable), such as weather conditions, civic closures, force majeure events, and acts of governmental authority or other third parties, and that the Experiences may therefore not be as anticipated or conform exactly to the descriptions posted.  Tugolo is only providing the platform through which Local Friends and Travelers communicate, and is not responsible for: (a) any delays or cancellations, (b) unsuccessful Experiences, (c) Travelers sharing Experiences, (d) issues with Local Friends, insurance, or vehicles, (e) issues with your mobile device, the Internet, or your ISP, (f) charges relating to your wireless network carrier or use of your mobile device, or (g) extra travel costs such as tolls or ferry charges that may arise due to the routes travelled.

  • Experience Request and Fee
  • Each Experience posted on the Software is subject to an amount to be paid in exchange for the Experience to be provided by the Local Friend, subject to the provisions of Section 4.2 below.  Such amount shall be posted in association with each Experience.  As a Traveler, by submitting a request for an Experience, you authorize Tugolo to charge your Payment Account for the amount of the fee for the Experience.  Such fee will be processed and held in escrow by Tugolo through a third party payment processor until you have completed your Experience with the applicable Local Friend, at which point the payment will be released.  Subject to Section 4.3, below, a Traveler will not be responsible for paying such fee if the applicable Local Friend refuses the Traveler’s request for an Experience or cancels the Experience prior to such Experience occurring, and any amounts that may have been charged to the Traveler’s Payment Account in relation to such Experience will be refunded to the Traveler’s Payment Account. 
  • You acknowledge and agree that the fees paid for Experiences are intended to compensate the Local Friend for the Experience, and to compensate Tugolo for providing the Services.  The fee will consist of: (a) the amount set by the Local Friend in relation to the Experience described through the Software, which will generally be on a per person per day basis, and (b) a percentage amount relating to the amount in (a) to be paid to Tugolo for the provision of the Services.  In the event that unforeseeable events occur during the course of an actual Experience that result in additional expenses or costs, such additional expenses or costs will be matters solely for resolution in good faith between the Local Friend and the Traveler at the time, and Tugolo will have no liability whatsoever in relation thereto; Tugolo’s sole obligation hereunder relates to the fees posted through the Software.   
  • Nothing herein shall obligate any Local Friend to accept any Experience request.  Local Friends shall be entitled to refuse to provide an Experience to any Traveler if the Traveler has breached, or is in breach, of any portion of Section 3.1 herein, and in the event of such refusal, the Traveler has no right to any refund of the Experience fee.  Travelers shall be entitled to refuse to accept an Experience from any Local Friend if Local Friend has breached, or is in breach, of any portion of Section 3.1 herein, and in the event of such refusal, the Traveler shall be entitled to a refund of the Experience fee.
  • In order for Travelers to receive a refund of the fee in relation to Sections 4.1 or 4.3, Travelers must notify Tugolo within twelve (12) hours after the scheduled Experience.  Failure to notify Tugolo within such twelve (12) hour period may result in the fee being processed, and thereafter, Tugolo’s sole responsibility shall be to make commercially reasonable efforts to facilitate a resolution of the issue between the Traveler and the applicable Local Friend.
  • The Software
  • License Grant.  Tugolo hereby grants you a personal, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable license to use the Software on any supported mobile device, solely for the purposes of using the Services.  This license does not imply any rights to future upgrades or updates to, or versions of, the Software.  However, if Tugolo does provide you with any Software upgrades, updates or versions, such updates, upgrades and versions shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement or such agreement, if any, which accompanies such upgrades, updates or versions.  Such Software upgrades, updates and versions may be subject to additional payments.
