In doing so, IBC ensures compliance with all requirements in accordance with GDPR.

REVIEWS, COMMENTS AND OTHER SUBMISSIONS

We appreciate hearing from you. Please be aware that by submitting content to this Website by electronic mail, postings on this Website or otherwise, including any hotel reviews, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like contained in any submissions (collectively, “Submissions”), you grant IBC Hotels and its subsidiaries and corporate affiliates (collectively, the “IBC Companies or IVHTravel or InnDependent InnCentives or InnSuites Hospitality Trust”) and the affiliated, co-branded and/or linked website partners through whom we provide service (collectively, the “IBC Affiliates”), a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, transferable, irrevocable and fully sub-licensable right to (a) use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, publish, create derivative works from and publicly display and perform such Submissions throughout the world in any media, now known or hereafter devised; and (b) use the name that you submit in connection with such Submission. You acknowledge that IBC may choose to provide attribution of your comments or reviews (for example, listing your name and hometown on a hotel review that you submit) at our discretion, and that such submissions may be shared with our supplier partners. You further grant IBC the right to pursue at law any person or entity that violates your or IBC rights in the Submissions by a breach of these Terms of Use. You acknowledge and agree that Submissions are non-confidential and non-proprietary. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Submissions posted or submitted by you. We have no obligation to post your comments; we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to determine which comments are published on the Website. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, please do not provide us with any Submissions. You are fully responsible for the content of your Submissions, (specifically including, but not limited to, reviews posted to this Website). You are prohibited from posting or transmitting to or from this Website: (i) any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, or other material or content that would violate rights of publicity and/or privacy or that would violate any law; (ii) any commercial material or content (including, but not limited to, solicitation of funds, advertising, or marketing of any good or services); and (iii) any material or content that infringes, misappropriates or violates any copyright, trademark, patent right or other proprietary right of any third party. You shall be solely liable for any damages resulting from any violation of the foregoing restrictions, or any other harm resulting from your posting of content to this Website. You acknowledge that IBC Hotels may exercise its rights (e.g. use, publish, delete) to any content you submit without notice to you. If you submit more than one review for the same hotel, only your most recent submission is eligible for use. Some IBC affiliate sites use translate or currency tools made available on this website to enable you to translate content and convert currencies. The translate tools typically use an automated process to translate text and approximate rates and this may result in inaccuracies. Your use of the Translate and Currency tool is entirely at your own risk. IBC Hotels does not warrant or make any promises, assurances or guarantees as to the accuracy or completeness of the translations or currency exchanges provided by translation tools on this website.

PREPAID HOTEL RESERVATIONS

You acknowledge that IBC pre-negotiate certain room rates with hotel suppliers to facilitate the booking of reservations on your behalf. You also acknowledge that IBC provide you services to facilitate such booking of reservations for a consideration (the “facilitation fee or credit card fee”). The room rate displayed on the Website is a combination of the pre-negotiated room rate for rooms reserved on your behalf by IBC and the facilitation/credit card fee retained by IBC for their services. You authorize IBC to book reservations for the total reservation price, which includes the room rate displayed on the Website, plus tax recovery charges, service fees, and where applicable, taxes on IBC’s services. You agree that your credit card will be charged by IBC for the total reservation price. Upon submitting your reservation request you authorize IBC to facilitate hotel reservations on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with hotel suppliers. Hotel suppliers are subject to ACH/Wire fees if any. Some hotels prefer a guaranteed (GTD) “Split” reservation whereby a deposit is gathered at time of booking and the balance is paid upon check-in by the guest to the hotel. You acknowledge that except as provided below with respect to tax obligations on the amounts we retain for our services, IBC do not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. The tax recovery charges on prepaid hotel transactions are a recovery of the estimated taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc) that IBC pay to the hotel supplier for taxes due on the hotel’s rental rate for the room. The hotel suppliers invoice IBC for tax amounts. The hotel suppliers are responsible for remitting applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. None of IBC act as co-vendors with the supplier with whom we book or reserve our customer’s travel arrangements. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. The actual tax amounts paid by IBC to the hotel suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel by our customers. We retain service fees as additional compensation in servicing your travel reservation. Service fees retained by IBC for their services vary based on the amount and type of hotel reservation. You may cancel or change your prepaid hotel reservation, but you may be charged the cancellation or change fee indicated in the rules and restrictions for the hotel reservation. If you do not cancel or change your reservation before the cancellation policy period applicable to the hotel you reserved, which varies by hotel prior to your date of arrival, you will be subject to a charge equal to applicable nightly rates, tax recovery charges and service fees. In the event you do not show for the first night of the 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 hotels do not permit changes to or cancellations of reservations after they are made, as indicated in the rules and restrictions for the hotel reservation. You agree to abide by the Terms of Use imposed with respect to your prepaid hotel reservations. You may not book more than 10 rooms online for the same hotel/stay dates. If we determine that you have booked more than 10 rooms in total in separate reservations, we may cancel your reservations, and charge you a cancellation fee, if applicable. If you paid a non-refundable deposit, your deposit will be forfeited. If you wish to book 11 or more rooms, you must contact IBC’s group travel specialists by phone at (602) 870-6929 or by filling out the group travel form online. One of our group travel specialists will research your request and contact you to complete your reservation. You may be asked to sign a written contract and/or pay a nonrefundable deposit.

PAY NOW OR PAY LATER (4PM HOLD) DETAILS

With certain hotels, hotels may be presented with the option to pay online now or pay later with a 4pm hold at the hotel. If you select the “Pay Online Now (for late arrival)” option, IBC will charge the amount to your credit card in US dollars immediately. If you select “Pay Later at the Hotel”, the hotel will charge your credit card in the local currency at the time of your stay. Please note that taxes and fees vary between the two payment options. Tax rates and foreign exchange rates could change in the time between booking and stay. Hotels selecting IBC Collect in full are subject to ACH/Wire Fees for payment by IBC Hotels, if any.

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL

You are responsible for ensuring that you meet foreign entry requirements and that your travel documents, such as passports and visas (transit, business, tourist, and otherwise), are in order and any other foreign entry requirements are met. IBC has no special knowledge regarding foreign entry requirements or travel documents. We urge customers to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories issued by the relevant governments prior to booking travel to international destinations. Passport and Visa: You must consult the relevant Embassy or Consulate for this information. Requirements may change and you should check for up-to-date information before booking and departure. We accept no liability if you are refused entry onto a flight or into any country due to your failure to carry the correct and adequate passport, visa, or other travel documents required by any airline, authority, or country, including countries you may just be transiting through. This includes all stops made by the aircraft, even if you do not leave the aircraft or airport. Health: Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your doctor for current recommendations before you depart. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip. BY OFFERING TRAVEL PRODUCTS IN PARTICULAR INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS, IBC DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT TRAVEL TO SUCH AREAS IS ADVISABLE OR WITHOUT RISK, AND IS NOT LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES THAT MAY RESULT FROM TRAVEL TO SUCH DESTINATIONS.
