any failure or error in the making or authenticating of a booking due to your own error, or, which is due to any other failure or error that is beyond our control, such as (but not limited to) a power failure, or act of God;
any subsequent cancellation of a booking by an Iceberg Provider for any reason whatsoever, or, any failure to provide any or all of the travel services booked by you with that Iceberg Provider (therefore, we strongly encourage you to take out an suitable travel insurance policy to cover any and all travel-related contingencies, such an unexpected cancellation).

By using BOOK to make a booking with an Iceberg Provider, you understand that you enter into a contract for travel services, and that YOUR CONTRACT FOR TRAVEL SERVICES IS STRICTLY WITH THE ICEBERG PROVIDER, NOT PERMAGO, WHICH ONLY ACTS AS AN AGENT FOR THE ICEBERG PROVIDER. The responsibility to provide and administer the travel services belongs to the Iceberg Provider with which you have made your booking. PermaGO shall not be held responsible for the quality of the travel services (including lodging accommodations) or any other travel services that are included in the booking, nor for the fulfillment of any booking made using BOOK.

This deposit shall be a fixed percentage of the total value of your booking with the Iceberg Provider, and in all circumstances shall always be non-refundable unless you select the Rain Check option at the time you make your booking. In which case, the amount of the deposit shall be converted to a credit to be used for future bookings on BOOK, if and only if you cancel your booking within the Terms of this agreement, and the terms and conditions of trade applied by the Iceberg Provider.

You understand and agree that payment of the balance of the cost of the booking that you made using BOOK, including payment for all costs associated with additional services subsequently agreed with the Iceberg Provider, and where applicable, payment for costs associated with the Iceberg Provider’s service charges and taxes, which are pursuant to the terms and conditions of trade applied by the Iceberg Provider, shall be solely your responsibility upon your arrival.
In order to guarantee your booking, you must use a credit card, a debit card, or, you may guarantee your booking by using Bitpay contingent on the option being available with the Iceberg Provider.
WHEN MAKING A BOOKING WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD, DEBIT CARD, OR BITPAY WALLET, YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT THE ICEBERG PROVIDER’S RELEVANT CANCELLATION AND NO-SHOW POLICY SET OUT IN ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS. EACH ICEBERG PROVIDER SHALL SPECIFY THE PERMITTED TIMEFRAME ALLOWED FOR ANY AND ALL CANCELLATION OF BOOKINGS MADE USING BOOK, AND IN THE EVENT THAT YOU CANCEL YOUR BOOKING OUTSIDE THIS PERMITTED TIMEFRAME, OR THAT YOU FAIL TO ARRIVE BY THE AGREED CHECK-IN TIME, YOU AUTHORIZE PERMAGO – ACTING AS AGENT, AND COLLECTING FOR AND ON BEHALF OF THE ICEBERG PROVIDER – OR THE ICEBERG PROVIDER (EITHER, BUT NOT BOTH), TO CHARGE TO YOUR CREDIT CARD, DEBIT CARD OR (IF APPLICABLE) THE BITPAY WALLET ON FILE WITH US, (WITHOUT FURTHER NOTIFICATION TO OR CONSULTATION WITH YOU) AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO ONE NIGHT’S STAY OR ANY SUCH OTHER AMOUNT AS MAY BE STIPULATED IN THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE ICEBERG PROVIDER.

In all circumstances, no refund in parts or in whole of the deposit shall be made.
When making your booking, it is your responsibility to communicate with and disclose to the Iceberg Provider any special requests that you or a member of your party may require as a result of any existing medical conditions, or otherwise.
On behalf of the Iceberg Provider, we will confirm your booking by sending you an e-mail booking confirmation to the address you have on file with us. We will not provide information regarding any charges for additional services or details of any service charges or taxes charged by the Iceberg Provider in the booking confirmation e-mail, nor are we to be held responsible for providing any such information at any time.
Please note, however, that in circumstances where you do not receive an e-mail booking confirmation from us for any reason, by default you must assume that your booking is confirmed with the Iceberg Provider, and furthermore, you understand that your booking’s validity will not be contingent on your receiving further confirmation (via e-mail or otherwise) upon your submission of payment for the deposit and service charge to PermaGO.
Upon receipt of the booking confirmation, we encourage and strongly recommend that you check, and confirm the exact terms and conditions upon which the Iceberg Provider makes the additional services, reserved services, service charges or taxes by contacting them directly. For all inquiries, cancellations or modifications of your booking, you should provide the reference number(s) included on the booking confirmation.
In agreement with the cancellation policy set forth by the Iceberg Provider on the booking confirmation and detailed property-listing page, you may cancel or modify your booking via your “Account Settings” by logging in at www.iceberg.travel.
IN THE EVENT YOU CHOOSE TO CANCEL YOUR BOOKING, ALL DEPOSITS AND BOOKING FEES ARE NON REFUNDABLE UNLESS YOU HAVE SELECTED THE RAINCHECK BOOKING OPTION (DESCRIBED IN SECTION 4.7 BELOW) IN WHICH CASE, ONLY THE DEPOSIT MAY BE CREDITED BACK TO YOUR ACCOUNT IN THE FORM OF A BOOKING CREDIT, ACCESSIBLE FOR FUTURE USE ON OUR SITE, AND APPLICATION.
At the time you make your booking, if you choose the Raincheck Booking option, you will be charged a nominal fee and, in return, should you later decide to cancel your booking within the period of notice required by the Iceberg Provider (stipulated in its terms and conditions,) your deposit will be credited back to your PermaGO Account as a booking credit, in US Dollars, and you will be able to re-use the credited amount for future bookings on our Site and Application for up to 24 months from the cancellation date. The booking credit is non-transferrable and YOUR BOOKING FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE.
If the Raincheck Booking option is NOT SELECTED, by default your booking will be considered to be a standard Booking, in which case, regardless of how much notice you give, DEPOSITS AND BOOKINGS FEES WILL BE NON-REFUNDABLE if you choose to cancel your Booking.
IN ORDER TO AVOID ADDITIONAL CHARGES FOR A “NO SHOW FEE” (SEE SECTION 4.3) IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE THE AMOUNT OF NOTICE TO THE ICEBERG PROVIDER STIPULATED IN ITS CANCELLATION POLICY, DESPITE YOUR DEPOSIT AND BOOKING FEE BEING NON-REFUNDABLE.
The following provisions will apply when you select the Raincheck Booking option:
A booking credit of your deposit will apply to your PermaGO Account only where:
you have given the Iceberg Provider the required amount of notice stipulated in its terms and conditions and at least 24 hours’ notice prior to the scheduled check-in time and date;
you have cancelled your booking through your Account Settings by logging into your PermaGO Account, which you can access by clicking: “BOOK” > “Upcoming Bookings” > “Cancel Booking.” Please note, booking credit shall not apply with respect to cancellations made by telephone or e-mail; and
your ENTIRE booking is cancelled (modifications or partial cancellations, such as cancellations of 1 night of a 7-night booking, are not protected under the Raincheck Booking option)
Your booking credit will be applied to the PermaGO Member account linked in our database systems by the e-mail used to register the account at sign up. Under no circumstances can the booking credit be applied to any other individual or PermaGO Member Account.
Booking credit must be used within 24 months from the cancellation date, after which it shall expire.
Booking credit may only be used once. In cases where you cancel any subsequent bookings, the Raincheck option must be selected for those bookings as well, in order to qualify for the same cancellation protection and receive a Booking credit to your PermaGO Account.
Booking credit may only be applied to deposits for accommodation bookings with Iceberg Providers. More specifically, it may not be applied to our booking fees or other purchases on our Site and Application.
In the event of a No-Show where you fail to cancel your Booking, or, where you provide an insufficient amount of notice as stipulated in these and/or the Iceberg Provider’s terms and conditions, all deposits and any fees paid, including for the Raincheck Booking option, will be non-refundable. Furthermore, you authorize PermaGO or the Iceberg Provider (one, or the other but not both) to charge your credit card, debit card, or Bitpay wallet any further amounts owed (for example: 1-night’s charge) as a result of your No-Show or insufficient cancellation notice in full accordance with Section 4.3 (above).
Your credit will be automatically applied to your future booking(s) when you make a booking while logged into your PermaGO Member account.
You will pay for the deposit and booking fee in the “settlement currency” that you choose at the time you make your booking. Where the Iceberg Provider has set the accommodation price in a different currency from your settlement currency, the deposit amount and booking fee that you will be charged in your settlement currency will be calculated by converting the total amount of your booking using an exchange rate based on a daily feed from a reputable currency conversion website.

By using BOOK to make a booking with an Iceberg Provider, you understand that you enter into a contract, which allows that Iceberg Provider to provide PermaGO and other Iceberg Providers with private feedback, private reviews, and private comments regarding your transgressions, policy violations, criminal misconduct, or other relevant information concerning your stay with them. Furthermore, you understand that these feedback, reviews, and comments may affect your ability to make future bookings with other Iceberg Providers while using the BOOK booking engine.

PermaGO is a membership-exclusive service provider of Cloud Assistance, or virtual assistance services. For all intents and purposes, PermaGO is not a provider of lodging accommodations; PermaGO is not a provider of office or meeting room accommodations; and PermaGO is not a provider of communication device rental services. Please note however, that PermaGO reserves the right to directly provide any such services in the future, and this section shall in no way preclude PermaGO or its subsidiaries from providing such services directly or indirectly as part of the ongoing operations of PermaGO.
Trip Package Reservations: Passport Members may make a reservation to secure Cloud Assistance, which are the services of a virtual assistant through the Site, Application or by calling a PermaGO customer service representative and submitting payment via credit card, debit card or other accepted forms of payment allowed on the Site or Application, such as Bitpay, in order to confirm the reservation ('Reservation'). The privilege of making reservations (including optional features) through our Site, Application and Services, is understood and accepted by all Passport Members as being a wholly revocable privilege granted to them by PermaGO, and may be terminated at any time, and shall in no way be construed as a grant of a right (legal or otherwise) of any kind, and unless any rights have been expressly granted in writing between you, as a Passport Member, and PermaGO, no implied rights shall exist or be enforceable under any jurisdiction thereof. Formatted: Font: BoldPlease note that PermaGO does not currently charge any fees associated with the grant of privileges to Passport Members in order to access and reserve our services and complimentary optional features. However, you understand and agree that PermaGO reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the privilege to access and use its Site, Application and Services in the future. PermaGO will provide notice of any such fees collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing any such changes in its membership policies.
Optional Features: As defined under "Key Definitions" above, Optional Features mean any complimentary services or products offered on our Site, Application and Services by any of our subsidiaries and/or affiliates, including by other Passport Members. From time to time, existing Optional Features may be improved upon, removed completely, or entirely new Optional Features may be offered. These Optional Features may include (but not limited to) the borrowing of communication devices, the grant of access and use of workspaces and meeting rooms, and the grant of access to lodging accommodations with fellow Passport Members serving in the capacity as a PermaGO Host.
Please note that the inherent definition of 'complimentary' denotes that these Optional Features CANNOT BE SECURED OR ACQUIRED DIRECTLY BY AN OUTRIGHT OFFER TO PURCHASE THE SERVICE OR PRODUCT FROM OUR SUBSIDIARY OR AFFILIATE, nor is any Passport Member allowed to contact our subsidiary or affiliate directly, with the intent to secure or acquire such service or product listed on our Site, Application and Services. These Optional Features may only be secured, acquired and added to a Trip Package consisting of a reservation for Cloud Assistance, and shall be based solely on the availability at the time the Trip Package is created through our Site, Application and Services. Furthermore, if any Passport Member attempts to intentionally usurp this provision, that Passport Member would immediately be in direct violation of these Terms and Conditions, and would therefore be subject to possible penalties associated therewith, including but not limited to a revocation of their PermaGO Passport, and any associated privileges previously granted to and accumulated by that Passport Member.
Passport Members will have an opportunity to review the scope of the Cloud Assistance requested, including the duration of virtual assistance and the availability of any Optional Features, prior to submitting payment to finalize their Trip Package. Once payment is submitted to PermaGO, the reservation and any associated services and optional features within the Trip Package shall be considered guaranteed by PermaGO, and the necessary resources shall be allocated to that Passport Member's reservation. In the unlikely event that PermaGO is unable to fulfill its obligation, or if an affiliate or subsidiary is unable to honor the service or product requested as part of the Optional Features, any amounts received by PermaGO will be refunded to such member in its entirety. Any further compensation is not to exceed double the monetary value of the original reservation, unless, such compensation is expressly approved by PermaGO.
Financial Terms: You, as a Passport Member, agree to pay PermaGO for the Total Fees associated with any reservation request in connection with your Member Account. In order to confirm your reservation for Cloud Assistance and any Optional Features, you understand and agree that PermaGO, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to charge your credit card, debit card, or Bitpay wallet the full amount of the reservation in United States Dollars (USD) in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable services page. Please note that PermaGO cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Passport Member by his or her bank related to PermaGO's charge of the Total Fees, and PermaGO disclaims all liability in this regard.
When you create and finalize a new reservation in your Trip Package for Cloud Assistance, PermaGO will allocate and dedicate a trained virtual assistant to fulfill our obligation of providing virtual assistance service to you as a Passport Member, on the date requested by you for the reservation. Full refunds, partial refunds, credits or partial credits to your account in cases of cancellation will be contingent on the extent of resources already allocated (at the time of the cancellation request) to fulfill your reservation.
GENERALLY, BUT NOT ALWAYS, CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS WARRANT CONSIDERATION WHEN THEY QUALIFY UNDER EITHER OF THE TWO CATEGORIES:
If Optional Features are not requested as part of your finalized Trip Package, a cancellation for Cloud Assistance may be requested by speaking to one of our customer service representatives via telephone, or by sending an email to email@example.com with your cancellation request if at least 48 hours remain from the start of your reservation. A full refund will be processed within a commercially reasonable time upon receipt of the cancellation request. In cases where the cancellation request is submitted and the notification is received with less than 48 hours remaining from the start of your reservation, you shall be entitled to a full credit of hours for the Cloud Assistance not rendered.
All Virtual Assistance Service hours not dispensed, resulting from your cancellation, will be credited to your Member Account and shall remain valid for a period of up to 90 calendar days from the date of the cancellation request. Virtual Assistance Service Credits may be used to make a reservation through the Site, Application and Services, and when available, may include the reservation of any non-guaranteed Optional Features.
If any Optional Features are requested as part of your finalized Trip Package, you hereby acknowledge your understanding that due to additional resources being allocated by us, our affiliates and our subsidiaries, and that such additional resources were set aside exclusively for your reservation so that PermaGO may fulfill its obligations to you, this has effectively rendered these additional resources unavailable to other Passport Members, and has materially affected other Passport Members' ability to request, finalize and submit payment for their desired Trip Package. As such, please note that we are limited in our ability to process your refund when Optional Features are requested as part of your finalized Trip package.
A cancellation of a reservation containing any Optional Features may be requested by speaking to one of our customer service representatives via telephone, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your cancellation request if at least four (4) days remain from the start of your reservation. A full refund will be processed upon receipt of the cancellation notice.
In cases where the cancellation request is submitted and the notification is received with less than four (4) days remaining from the start of the reservation, you understand and agree that you shall NOT be entitled to any refund or credit, partial or otherwise, of any service fees collected by PermaGO associated with your finalized Trip Package.
All Virtual Assistance Service hours not dispensed, resulting from your cancellation, will be credited to your Member Account and shall remain valid for a period of up to 90 calendar days from the date of the cancellation request. Virtual Assistance Service Credits may be used to make a reservation through the Site, Application and Services, and when available, may include the reservation of any non-guaranteed Optional Features.
At all times, PermaGO will strive to provide virtual assistance service that meet or exceed our organization's standards, and the standards and expectations of our Passport Members. However, due to the nature of the services we provide, the price, length, dependability and scope of virtual assistance services may fluctuate from time to time, may depend on the level and exclusivity of the membership, may be subject to certain logistical or legal restrictions, and may be contingent on available resources on the date of the reservation. As such, we are unable to make any claims or guarantees that any such virtual assistance service will be consistent with any previous experience, or any other members' previous experience. PermaGO members may not hold us to any such standards or expectations. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PARTS OF THE ABOVE-MENTIONED TERMS, YOU MAY NOT MAKE A RESERVATION WITH PERMAGO, AND YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE USE OF OUR SITE, APPLICATION, AND SERVICES.
The PermaGO Terms of Service governs the disclosure of information by and between PermaGO, (the 'Recipient') and you, the Member (the 'Discloser') as of the date of your account registration. The parties are willing to disclose information to each other that may be private in nature during the course of their relationship on the condition that the recipient of the information does not disclose the same to any third party, nor make use thereof in any manner except as outlined below.
IN CONSIDERATION OF SUCH DISCLOSURE TO EACH OTHER, IT IS AGREED BY AND BETWEEN THE PARTIES HERETO AS FOLLOWS:
Handling of Confidential Information: The receiving party undertakes to treat as strictly confidential and not to divulge to any third party any of the information disclosed by the other and not to make use of any such information without the disclosing party's prior written consent. The obligations of confidentiality and non-disclosure will be honored even after the termination of this agreement, except as required by governmental authorities.
Definition of Confidential Information: As used herein, 'Confidential Information' shall mean any and all technical and non-technical information provided by either party to the other, including but not limited to, trade secrets, information related to current, future, and proposed products and services of each of the parties, and including, without limitation, their respective information concerning research, experimental work, development, financial information, customer lists, employees, business and contractual relationships, sales and marketing plans.
Exceptions to Confidential Information: The above undertaking shall not apply to:
Information which after disclosure by the disclosing party is published or becomes generally available to the public, otherwise than through any act or omission on the part of the receiving party;
Information which the receiving party can show was in its possession at the time of disclosure and which was not acquired directly from the disclosing party;
Information rightfully acquired from others who did not obtain it under the pledge of secrecy to the disclosing party.
Information which at the time of disclosure is published or otherwise generally available to the public;
Residual Knowledge: The terms of the Mutual Non-Disclosure shall be deemed to apply also to the employees or agents or legally associated entities of the receiving party who shall require their said employees or agents or legally associated entities to observe the foregoing obligations.
No Grant of Rights: Neither the execution of this Agreement, nor the disclosure of any Proprietary Information hereunder, shall be construed as granting either expressly or by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license under any invention or patent now or hereafter owned by or controlled by the parties.
PermaGO may exercise its right at any time to contract with third party organizations to provide and fulfill key tasks, functions, general maintenance or to offer improvements to existing features or to implement entirely new features as part of our ongoing daily operations. Should any dispute arise between PermaGO Members and PermaGO (including our affiliates, third parties, Iceberg Providers) or between other PermaGO Members, PermaGO shall make every effort to act as an intermediary in exploring all viable, conceivable resolutions (the 'Mediation Phase'). However, at no time shall PermaGO be held responsible for the actions leading up to, during, or after the mediation phase, or the results thereof between any such parties.
As a Passport Member only, if you are granted access to use any PermaGO Bridge, you are responsible for leaving the Bridge in the same condition it was in when you arrived. You accept and agree that you are solely responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you invite to, or otherwise provide access to the Bridge, regardless of whether or not you obtained prior approval from PermaGO, or its affiliate(s). In the event that an affiliate makes a claim to the contrary and furnishes evidence of damage, including photographs, you hereby consent to paying the cost of replacing the damaged items with the same item, or an item of similar or equal value to the satisfaction of the affiliate. Upon notification of any allegation or claim and after a period of forty-eight (48) hours in which you may respond to the allegation, the payment will be charged to and taken from the credit card, debit card, or Bitpay wallet on file in your Member Account. PermaGO reserves the right to charge the credit card on file in your Member Account, or otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any channels of recourse available to PermaGO in this regard, in circumstances in which you have been found, in PermaGO's sole discretion, to have caused damage to any Bridge, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by PermaGO's affiliates, and in relation to any payments made by PermaGO to affiliates. If we are not able to charge the credit card, debit card, or Bitpay wallet on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you consent to remit payment for any damage to the Bridge to the applicable affiliate or to PermaGO directly (if applicable).
Members, Passport Members and Affiliates agree that they will, in good faith, cooperate with and assist PermaGO, and to provide PermaGO with any information it deems relevant in order for PermaGO to take reasonable actions as may be necessary, in connection with any allegations or claims made by PermaGO Members relating to any Bridge or any personal or other property located at a Bridge, or with respect to any investigation undertaken by PermaGO or a representative of PermaGO regarding the use or abuse of the Site, Application and Services. If you are a PermaGO member, upon reasonable request by PermaGO, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to partake in a mediation process or a comparable resolution process with an affiliate, at no cost to you, which resolution process will be directed by PermaGO or a third party of PermaGO's choosing, with respect to any losses for which the affiliate is requesting payment from PermaGO.

If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules.
