We (the folks at TRAVAA) run a travel planning platform and blog called TRAVAA.com and would love for you to use it. TRAVAA.com’s current beta service is free, and we may introduce paid services in the future. Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your travel plan as possible and encourage you to publish your travel plans and adventures freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your travel plans.
If you find a TRAVAA.com website that you believe violates these Terms of Service, please contact our support team.
Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using our Services. By accessing or using any part of our services, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access or use any of our services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by TRAVAA, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.
Our Services are not directed to children younger than 13, and access and use of our Services is only offered to users 13 years of age or older. If you are under 13 years old, please do not register to use our Services. Any person who registers as a user or provides their personal information to our Services represents that they are 13 years of age or older.
Use of our Services requires a TRAVAA.com account. You agree to provide us with complete and accurate information when you register for an account. You will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your username. You are responsible for keeping your password secure.
Your TRAVAA.com Account and Travel Plans. If you create a travel plan (aka itinerary) on TRAVAA.com, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and travel plans, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the travel plans. You must immediately notify TRAVAA of any unauthorized uses of your travel plans, your account, or any other breaches of security. TRAVAA will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Responsibility of Contributors. If you create a travel plan, publish the travel plan, comment on a blog, post material to TRAVAA.com, post links on TRAVAA.com, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct. That is the case regardless of what form the Content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, or code. By using TRAVAA.com, you represent and warrant that your Content and conduct do not violate these terms or the User Guidelines. By submitting Content to TRAVAA for inclusion on your travel plan, you grant TRAVAA a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing, and promoting your travel plan. This license allows TRAVAA to make publicly-posted content available to third parties selected by TRAVAA so that these third parties can analyze and distribute (but not publicly display) your content through their services. You also give other TRAVAA.com users permission to replicate and share your publicly-posted Content on other TRAVAA.com websites and add their own Content to it (aka to copy your Content). If you delete Content, TRAVAA will use reasonable efforts to remove it from TRAVAA.com, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, TRAVAA has the right (though not the obligation) to, in TRAVAA’s sole discretion, (i) reclaim your username or travel plan URL due to prolonged inactivity or a TRAVAA website design change in URL naming convention, (ii) refuse or remove any content that, in TRAVAA’s reasonable opinion, violates any TRAVAA policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (iii) terminate or deny access to and use of TRAVAA.com to any individual or entity for any reason. TRAVAA will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
Web Traffic. We use a third party, Google, Inc. (“Google Analytics”), to measure TRAVAA.com’s audience and usage. By publishing your travel plans on TRAVAA.com, you agree to assign the traffic relating to your published travel plan pages to TRAVAA. Your published travel plan pages traffic will be included under TRAVAA. You understand that your published travel plan pages will not receive credit for traffic in these reports, and you must not assign your website’s traffic to any other party.
Advertisements. TRAVAA reserves the right to display advertisements on your published travel plan pages or any other pages on TRAVAA.com.
Attribution. TRAVAA reserves the right to display attribution text or links in your published travel plan pages.
Payment and Renewal. Paid services may be introduced in the future.
TRAVAA has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including web links, posted to our Services, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating our Services, TRAVAA does not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful, or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Our Services may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors.

We have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, made available through the websites and webpages to which TRAVAA.com links, and that link to TRAVAA.com.

By linking to a non-TRAVAA.com website, TRAVAA does not represent or imply that it endorses such website. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. TRAVAA disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-TRAVAA.com websites and webpages.
As TRAVAA asks others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on or linked to by TRAVAA.com violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify TRAVAA. TRAVAA will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. TRAVAA will terminate a visitor’s access to and use of the Website if, under appropriate circumstances, the visitor is determined to be a repeat infringer of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of TRAVAA or others.

We are constantly updating our Services, and that means sometimes we have to change the legal terms under which our Services are offered. If we make changes that are material, we will let you know by posting on one of our blogs, or by sending you an email or other communication before the changes take effect. The notice will designate a reasonable period of time after which the new terms will take effect.

However, any dispute that arose before the changes shall be governed by the Terms that were in place when the dispute arose.
TRAVAA may terminate your access to all or any part of our Services at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your TRAVAA.com account (if you have one), you may simply discontinue using our Services. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
Our Services are provided “as is.” TRAVAA and its suppliers and licensors hereby disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

TRAVAA shall have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond their reasonable control. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless TRAVAA, its contractors, and its licensors, and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of your use of our Services, including but not limited to your violation of this Agreement.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between TRAVAA and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and they may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of TRAVAA, or by the posting by TRAVAA of a revised version. This Agreement, any access to or use of our Services, will be governed by the laws of New Zealand. When you access the website or use our Services, you submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the New Zealand courts. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. You may assign your rights under this Agreement to any party that consents to, and agrees to be bound by, its terms and conditions; TRAVAA may assign its rights under this Agreement without condition. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
