DATA REWARDS PROGRAM
ELAMANT TRAVEL PORTAL
Elamant provides its users with access to flight, hotel, and car rental bookings discounted offers, and other travel services through the Elamant Travel Portal. The flights and other services offered through the Elamant Travel Portal are provided by third party suppliers, and additional terms and conditions will apply to your reservation and purchase of travel-related goods and services that you select. In particular, if you purchase airfare, please ensure you read the full terms and conditions of carriage issued by the travel supplier, which can be found on the supplier’s website. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the supplier’s rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of fares, products, or services. Airfare is only guaranteed once the purchase has been completed and the tickets have been issued. Airlines and other travel suppliers may change their prices without notice. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received in a timely fashion.
You acknowledge that some third-party providers offering certain services and/or activities may require you to sign their liability waiver prior to participating in the service and/or activity they offer. You understand that any violation of any such supplier’s rules and restrictions may result in cancellation of your reservation(s), in your being denied access to the applicable travel product or services, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we incur as a result of such violation.
Elamant may offer you the opportunity to book a reservation for a combination of two one—way airline tickets instead of a roundtrip ticket. Unlike roundtrip tickets, each one-way ticket is subject to its own rules, restrictions, and fees. If one of these flights is affected by an airline change (e.g. cancellation or rescheduling) that causes you to make changes to the other flight, you will be responsible for any fees incurred for making changes to the unaffected flight.
In some cases, the price of your flight, hotel room rate, or other travel service has been converted from a different currency for convenience purposes to provide you an estimate of the amount of the purchase in your local currency. As a result, when you book, the amount charged to your credit card may be slightly different due to currency fluctuations. Your statement may also include a fee from your card issuer to process the transaction plus any applicable taxes for international purchases.
When booking a hotel, car, or Elamant Travel Package reservation, you acknowledge that Elamant pre-negotiates certain rates with suppliers to facilitate the booking of reservations. You also acknowledge that Elamant provides you services to facilitate such booking of reservations for a consideration (the “facilitation fee”). The rates displayed on the Portal are a combination of the pre-negotiated room rates reserved on your behalf by Elamant and the facilitation fee retained by Elamant for our services. You authorize us to book reservations for the total reservation price, which includes any room, car rental, or other rates provided through the Portal, plus tax recovery charges, service fees, and where applicable, taxes on Elamant’s services. You agree that your credit card or other payment methods will be charged by Elamant for the total reservation price. Upon submitting your reservation request you authorize Elamant to facilitate travel reservations on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with travel suppliers. Sales, use, and/or local hotel occupancy taxes are imposed on the amounts that we charge for our services (service fee and/or facilitation fee) in certain jurisdictions. The actual tax amounts on our services may vary depending on the rates in effect at the time of your hotel stay.
Except for Elamant Travel Package reservations, you may cancel or change a reservation, but you will be charged the cancellation or change fee indicated in the rules and restrictions for the reservation. If you do not cancel or change your reservation before the cancellation policy period applicable to the supplier with whom you reserved, which varies by the supplier (usually 24 to 72 hours for hotels) prior to your date of arrival, you will be subject to a charge equal to the full rate(s), tax recovery charges and service fees. In the event you do not show for the first night of a hotel reservation and plan to check-in for subsequent nights in your reservation, you must confirm the reservation changes with us no later than the date of the first night of the reservation to prevent cancellation of your reservation. You agree to pay any cancellation or change fees that you incur. In limited cases, some suppliers do not permit changes to or cancellations of reservations after they are made, as indicated in the rules and restrictions for the reservation. You agree to abide by any additional terms imposed with respect to your prepaid travel reservations.
Elamant Travel Packages are unique experiences created by Elamant’s travel team, and each involves a number of independent suppliers with varying cancellation policies. Furthermore, the special pricing negotiated by Elamant with each supplier may be dependent on a no-cancellation guarantee or minimum booking requirement. Consequently, Elamant Travel Packages are generally not eligible for cancellation. If you need to cancel an Elamant Travel Package booking due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances, you should contact our customer support team at email@example.com.
Some hotels or other travel suppliers may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses incurred during your stay. Such a deposit is unrelated to any payment received by Elamant for your booking.
YOU FURTHER EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT THIS IS NOT AN INVESTMENT CONTRACT, AND ELAMANT MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE SOME OR ANY PECUNIARY COMPENSATION FROM YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM, INCLUDING YOUR USE OF THE DATA REWARDS PROGRAM OR PURCHASE OF ELAMANT PASSES. NEITHER ELAMANT AND ITS AFFILIATES NOR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, OR LICENSORS, WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY EXPECTED REWARDS, COMPENSATION, OR OTHER PECUNIARY BENEFIT.
WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THIS DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY APPLIES TO ANY DAMAGES OR INJURY CAUSED BY ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DELETION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS, COMMUNICATION LINE FAILURE, THEFT OR DESTRUCTION, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, OR USE OF, THE ELAMANT PLATFORM AND ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT FOUND THEREIN, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORTIOUS BEHAVIOR, NEGLIGENCE, OR UNDER ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ELAMANT IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS, AND THAT YOU ALONE ARE ASSUMING THE RISK OF INJURY FROM THE FOREGOING, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. IN NO EVENT WILL ELAMANT, ITS AFFILIATES, ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, LICENSORS OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING OR PROVIDING THE ELAMANT PLATFORM OR THE SOFTWARE, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE ELAMANT PLATFORM. IN ADDITION TO THE TERMS SET FORTH ABOVE, NEITHER ELAMANT NOR ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, INFORMATION PROVIDERS, OR CONTENT PARTNERS, SHALL BE LIABLE REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OR DURATION, FOR ANY ERRORS, INACCURACIES, OMISSIONS, OR OTHER DEFECTS IN, OR UNTIMELINESS OR UNAUTHENTICITY OF, THE INFORMATION CONTAINED WITHIN THE ELAMANT PLATFORM, OR FOR ANY DELAY OR INTERRUPTION IN THE TRANSMISSION THEREOF TO YOU, OR FOR ANY CLAIMS OR LOSSES ARISING THEREFROM OR OCCASIONED THEREBY. ELAMANT SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS OR LOSSES OF ANY NATURE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST PROFITS, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.
ANY MATERIAL DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE ELAMANT PLATFORM IS DONE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER OR OTHER ELECTRONIC SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF ANY SUCH MATERIAL. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH OR FROM THE ELAMANT PLATFORM, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT SHALL ELAMANT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF YOU OR THE RELEVANT PARTY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM LOSS FROM YOUR: (I) INABILITY TO USE, (II) USE, AND/OR (III) MISUSE, DATA; NOR SHALL ELAMANT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER TORTIOUS ACTION, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE ELAMANT PLATFORM, DOCUMENTS, PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SERVICES OR INFORMATION AVAILABLE RELATED TO THE ELAMANT PLATFORM. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
IN NO EVENT WILL ELAMANT OR ITS AGENTS, BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY TORT, CONTRACT OR ANY OTHER LIABILITY ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE ELAMANT PLATFORM, OR RELIANCE ON ANY INFORMATION OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY ELAMANT. ELAMANT AND AGENTS WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU AND/OR ANY THIRD PARTY, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF ELAMANT AND/OR ITS AGENTS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES RESULTING FROM: (I) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE ELAMANT PLATFORM; (II) THE TIMELINESS, DELETION, MISDELIVERY, OR FAILURE TO STORE ANY USER DATA, COMMUNICATIONS OR PERSONALIZATION SETTINGS; (III) THE COST OF GETTING SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY PRODUCTS, DATA, INFORMATION OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO, THROUGH OR FROM THE ELAMANT PLATFORM; (IV) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (V) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANYONE ON THE ELAMANT PLATFORM; (VI) THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, UNAUTHORIZED USE, PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF ANY THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF THE THIRD PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED PREVIOUSLY OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES; OR (VII) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE ELAMANT PLATFORM. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT IN ANY WAY HOLD ELAMANT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SELECTION OR RETENTION OF, OR THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF, THIRD PARTIES IN CONNECTION WITH THE ELAMANT PLATFORM.
Because some jurisdictions prohibit the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states the limitation of liability only with respect to consequential or incidental damages may not apply to you, and the respective liability of Elamant and its agents, employees, distributors, and agents is limited to the greatest extent allowable under applicable law in those jurisdictions.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY SITES
LINKS FOUND IN THE ELAMANT PLATFORM MAY LET YOU LEAVE THE ELAMANT PLATFORM TO ENTER OTHER SITES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SUCH LINKED SITES ARE NOT UNDER THE CONTROL OF ELAMANT, AND ELAMANT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTENTS OF ANY LINKED SITE OR ANY LINK CONTAINED IN A LINKED SITE, OR ANY CHANGES OR UPDATES TO SUCH SITES. ELAMANT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WEBCASTING OR ANY OTHER FORM OF TRANSMISSION RECEIVED FROM ANY LINKED SITE. ELAMANT IS PROVIDING THESE LINKS TO YOU ONLY AS A CONVENIENCE, AND THE INCLUSION OF ANY LINK DOES NOT IMPLY ENDORSEMENT OF THE SITE BY ELAMANT.
You agree that neither Elamant nor its agents will be liable for any costs, damages, expenses, or any other liability incurred by you as a result of any monitoring activity.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Elamant, its affiliates and their respective owners, directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against all Federal, State, and International, claims, demands, losses, costs, and/or expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of the use of the Elamant Platform by you or by your account on the Elamant Platform. In particular,
The term Elamant, along with any associated logos, product names, company names, and other logos found on the Elamant Platform, unless otherwise noted, are trademarks and/or trade dress of Elamant Holdings, LLC. All rights reserved. All other trademarks appearing on the Elamant website or within the Elamant Platform are the property of their respective owners.
By visiting the Website or using the Services, you agree that these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to submit to personal jurisdiction in the County of Santa Clara, California, for all purposes, and you agree to waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right to a trial by jury for any matter. Except for disputes that qualify for small claims court, all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms or any aspect of the relationship between you and us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury, and you agree that we and you are each waiving the right to trial by a jury. Except as provided below regarding the class action waiver, such disputes include, without limitation, disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability, or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision. All such matters shall be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court or judge; However, as set forth below, the preceding arbitration requirement shall not apply to disputes to the extent relating to the interpretation or application of the class action waiver below, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.
You agree that any arbitration under these terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted, and you are agreeing to give up the ability to participate in a class action. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section or any other provision of these terms or in the American Arbitration Association’s Consumer Arbitration Rules, disputes regarding the enforceability, revocability, or validity of the foregoing class action waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (1) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, or representative action, and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of such class action waiver is unenforceable, then the class, collective, and/or representative action, to that extent, must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of such class action waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by this Agreement. The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online at https://www.adr.org/. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location that is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the provisions of these terms and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have the authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these terms, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
