Thank you for using EntryG8!
These Terms of Service ("Terms") constitute a legally binding agreement ("Agreement") between you and EntryG8 (as defined below) governing your access to and use of the EntryG8 website, including any subdomains thereof, and any other websites through which EntryG8 makes the EntryG8 Services available (collectively, "Site"), our mobile, tablet and other smart device applications, and application program interfaces (collectively, "Application") and all associated services (collectively, "EntryG8 Services"). The Site, Application and EntryG8 Services together are hereinafter collectively referred to as the ‚ÄúEntryG8 Platform‚Äù.
Policies referenced in these Terms and Conditions, if not already available on the EntryG8.com website, are available upon request by contacting EntryG8.
When these Terms mention ‚ÄúEntryG8,‚Äù ‚Äúwe,‚Äù ‚Äúus,‚Äù or ‚Äúour,‚Äù it refers to the EntryG8, LLC company you are contracting with. You are contracting with EntryG8, LLC, Boise, ID 83712, United States.
Any and all payment processing services through or in connection with your use of the EntryG8 Platform ("Payment Services") are provided to you by one or more third party payment entities (individually and collectively, as appropriate, "EntryG8 Payments") as set out in the Payments Terms of Service ("Payments Terms").
Hosts alone are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to their Listings and Host Services. For example, some states have laws that restrict their ability to host paying guests for short periods or provide certain Host Services. In many jurisdictions, Hosts may have to register, get a permit or obtain a license before preparing food or serving alcohol for sale. Hosts are alone responsible for identifying and obtaining any required licenses, permits, or registrations for any Host Services they offer. Certain types of Host Services may be prohibited altogether. Penalties may include fines or other enforcement. If you have questions about how local laws apply to your Listing(s) and Host Service(s) on EntryG8, you should always seek legal guidance.

23. General Provisions
1.1 The EntryG8 Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (‚ÄúMembers‚Äù) and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are ‚ÄúHosts‚Äù and the services they offer are ‚ÄúHost Services‚Äù) to publish such Host Services on the EntryG8 Platform (‚ÄúListings‚Äù) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to book such Host Services (Members using Host Services are ‚ÄúGuests‚Äù). Host Services may include the offering of access to and use of wild game habitat, fishing shoreline access, camping facilities, private back country airstrips, or other properties ("Accommodations"), single or multi-day activities in various categories (‚ÄúExperiences‚Äù), and a variety of other travel and non-travel related services.
1.2 As the provider of the EntryG8 Platform, EntryG8 does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings or Host Services. Hosts alone are responsible for their Listings and Host Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. EntryG8 is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is EntryG8 a real estate broker or insurer. EntryG8 is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payments Terms.
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, EntryG8 has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings or Host Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. EntryG8 does not endorse any Member, Listing or Host Services. Any references to a Member being "verified" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by EntryG8 about any Member, including of the Member's identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to use an Accommodation, participate in an Experience or Event or use other Host Services, accept a booking request from a Guest, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by EntryG8 of any Host or Listing.
1.4 If you choose to use the EntryG8 Platform as a Host, your relationship with EntryG8 is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of EntryG8 for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of EntryG8.
1.5 To promote the EntryG8 Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Guests, Listings and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Members who speak different languages, Listings and other Member Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. EntryG8 cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Members are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The EntryG8 Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and noninfringement.
1.6 The EntryG8 Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (‚ÄúThird-Party Services‚Äù). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. EntryG8 is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by EntryG8 of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, EntryG8 cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the EntryG8 Platform. EntryG8 may restrict the availability of the EntryG8 Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the EntryG8 Platform. EntryG8 may improve, enhance and modify the EntryG8 Platform and introduce new EntryG8 Services from time to time.
2.1 You must be at least 18 years old and able to enter into legally binding contracts to access and use the EntryG8 Platform or register an EntryG8 Account. By accessing or using the EntryG8 Platform you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older and have the legal capacity and authority to enter into a contract.
2.2 You will comply with any applicable export control laws in your local jurisdiction. You also represent and warrant that (i) neither you nor your Host Service(s) are located or take place in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a "terrorist supporting" country, and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
2.3 EntryG8 may make the access to and use of the EntryG8 Platform, or certain areas or features of the EntryG8 Platform, subject to certain conditions or requirements, such as completing a verification process, meeting specific quality or eligibility criteria, meeting Ratings or Reviews thresholds, or booking and cancellation history.
2.4 User verification on the Internet is difficult and we do not assume any responsibility for the confirmation of any Member‚Äôs identity. Notwithstanding the above, for transparency and fraud prevention purposes, and as permitted by applicable laws, we may, but have no obligation to (i) ask Members to provide a form of government identification or other information or undertake additional checks designed to help verify the identities or backgrounds of Members, (ii) screen Members against third party databases or other sources and request reports from service providers, and (iii) where we have sufficient information to identify a Member, obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations or an equivalent version of background or registered sex offender checks in your local jurisdiction (if available). Positive verification by EntryG8 and a user‚Äôs return and EntryG8‚Äôs receipt of all necessary forms is required before a user qualifies for referral payment(s).
2.5 The access to or use of certain areas and features of the EntryG8 Platform may be subject to separate policies, standards or guidelines, or may require that you accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and conditions applicable to a specific area or feature of the EntryG8 Platform, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your access to or use of that area or feature, unless specified otherwise.
2.6 If you access or download the Application from the Apple App Store, you agree to Apple‚Äôs Licensed Application End User License Agreement. Some areas of the EntryG8 Platform implement Google Maps/Earth mapping services, including Google Maps API(s). Your use of Google Maps/Earth is subject to the Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service.
EntryG8 reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to these Terms, we will post the revised Terms on the EntryG8 Platform and update the ‚ÄúLast Updated‚Äù date at the top of these Terms. We will also provide you with notice of the modifications by email at least thirty (30) days before the date they become effective. If you disagree with the revised Terms, you may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect. We will inform you about your right to terminate the Agreement in the notification email. If you do not terminate your Agreement before the date the revised Terms become effective, your continued access to or use of the EntryG8 Platform will constitute acceptance of the revised Terms.
4.1 You must register an account ("EntryG8 Account") to access and use certain features of the EntryG8 Platform, such as publishing or booking a Listing. If you are registering an EntryG8 Account for a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to legally bind that entity and grant us all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms.
4.2 You can register an EntryG8 Account using an email address and creating a password, or through your account with certain third-party social networking services, such as Facebook or Google ("SNS Account"). You have the ability to disable the connection between your EntryG8 Account and your SNS Account at any time, by accessing the "Settings" section of the EntryG8 Platform.
4.3 You must provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and keep your EntryG8 Account and public EntryG8 Account profile page information up-to-date at all times.
4.4 You may not register more than one (1) EntryG8 Account unless EntryG8 authorizes you to do so. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your EntryG8 Account to another party.
4.5 You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your EntryG8 Account credentials and may not disclose your credentials to any third party. You must immediately notify EntryG8 if you know or have any reason to suspect that your credentials have been lost, stolen, misappropriated, or otherwise compromised or in case of any actual or suspected unauthorized use of your EntryG8 Account. You are liable for any and all activities conducted through your EntryG8 Account, unless such activities are not authorized by you and you are not otherwise negligent (such as failing to report the unauthorized use or loss of your credentials).
5.1 EntryG8 may, at its sole discretion, enable Members to (i) create, upload, post, send, receive and store content, such as text, photos, audio, video, or other materials and information on or through the EntryG8 Platform ("Member Content"); and (ii) access and view Member Content and any content that EntryG8 itself makes available on or through the EntryG8 Platform, including proprietary EntryG8 content and any content licensed or authorized for use by or through EntryG8 from a third party ("EntryG8 Content" and together with Member Content, "Collective Content").
5.2 The EntryG8 Platform, EntryG8 Content, and Member Content may in its entirety or in part be protected by copyright, trademark, and/or other laws of the United States and other countries. You acknowledge and agree that the EntryG8 Platform and EntryG8 Content, including all associated intellectual property rights, are the exclusive property of EntryG8 and/or its licensors or authorizing third-parties. You will not remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the EntryG8 Platform, EntryG8 Content or Member Content. All trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, and any other source identifiers of EntryG8 used on or in connection with the EntryG8 Platform and EntryG8 Content are trademarks or registered trademarks of EntryG8 in the United States and abroad. Trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names and any other proprietary designations of third parties used on or in connection with the EntryG8 Platform, EntryG8 Content, and/or Collective Content are used for identification purposes only and may be the property of their respective owners.
5.3 You will not use, copy, adapt, modify, prepare derivative works of, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, broadcast or otherwise exploit the EntryG8 Platform or Collective Content, except to the extent you are the legal owner of certain Member Content or as expressly permitted in these Terms. No licenses or rights are granted to you by implication or otherwise under any intellectual property rights owned or controlled by EntryG8 or its licensors, except for the licenses and rights expressly granted in these Terms.
5.4 Subject to your compliance with these Terms, EntryG8 grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to (i) download and use the Application on your personal device(s); and (ii) access and view any Collective Content made available on or through the EntryG8 Platform and accessible to you, solely for your personal and non-commercial use.
5.5 By creating, uploading, posting, sending, receiving, storing, or otherwise making available any Member Content on or through the EntryG8 Platform, you grant to EntryG8 a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual (or for the term of the protection), sub-licensable and transferable license to such Member Content to access, use, store, copy, modify, prepare derivative works of, distribute, publish, transmit, stream, broadcast, and otherwise exploit in any manner such Member Content to provide and/or promote the EntryG8 Platform, in any media or platform. Unless you provide specific consent, EntryG8 does not claim any ownership rights in any Member Content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use or exploit your Member Content.
5.6 EntryG8 may offer Hosts the option of having professional photographers take photographs of their Host Services, which are made available by the photographer to Hosts to include in their Listings with or without a watermark or tag bearing the words "EntryG8.com Verified Photo" or similar wording ("Verified Images"). You are responsible for ensuring that your Host Service is accurately represented in the Verified Images and you will stop using the Verified Images on or through the EntryG8 Platform if they no longer accurately represent your Listing, if you stop hosting the Host Service featured, or if your EntryG8 Account is terminated or suspended for any reason. You acknowledge and agree that EntryG8 shall have the right to use any Verified Images in advertising, marketing and/or any other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your Listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation to you. Where EntryG8 is not the exclusive owner of Verified Images, by using such Verified Images on or through the EntryG8 Platform, you grant to EntryG8 an exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual (or for the term of the protection), sub-licensable and transferable license to use such Verified Images for advertising, marketing and/or any other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your Listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation to you. EntryG8 in turn grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to use Verified Images outside of the EntryG8 Platform solely for your personal and non-commercial use.
5.7 You are solely responsible for all Member Content that you make available on or through the EntryG8 Platform. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all Member Content that you make available on or through the EntryG8 Platform or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases that are necessary to grant to EntryG8 the rights in and to such Member Content, as contemplated under these Terms; and (ii) neither the Member Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission or transmittal of the Member Content or EntryG8's use of the Member Content (or any portion thereof) will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party's patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
5.8 You will not post, upload, publish, submit or transmit any Member Content that: (i) is fraudulent, false, misleading (directly or by omission or failure to update information) or deceptive; (ii) is defamatory, libelous, obscene, pornographic, vulgar or offensive; (iii) promotes discrimination, bigotry, racism, hatred, harassment or harm against any individual or group; (iv) is violent or threatening or promotes violence or actions that are threatening to any other person; (v) promotes illegal or harmful activities or substances; or (vi) violates EntryG8‚Äôs Content Policy or any other EntryG8 policy. EntryG8 may, without prior notice, remove or disable access to any Member Content that EntryG8 finds to be in violation of these Terms or EntryG8‚Äôs then-current Policies or Standards, or otherwise may be harmful or objectionable to EntryG8, its Members, third parties, or property.
5.9 EntryG8 respects copyright law and expects its Members to do the same. If you believe that any content on the EntryG8 Platform infringes copyrights you own, please notify us in accordance with our Copyright Policy.
6.1 EntryG8 may charge fees to Hosts ("Host Fees") and/or Guests ("Guest Fees") (collectively, "Service Fees") in consideration for the use of the EntryG8 Platform.
6.2 Any applicable Service Fees (including any applicable Taxes) will be displayed to a Host or Guest prior to publishing or booking a Listing. EntryG8 reserves the right to change the Service Fees at any time, and we will provide Members adequate notice of any fee changes before they become effective.
6.3 You are responsible for paying any Service Fees that you owe to EntryG8. The applicable Service Fees are due and payable and collected by EntryG8 Payments pursuant to the Payments Terms. Except as otherwise provided on the EntryG8 Platform, Service Fees are non-refundable.
6.4 The Host Service Fee is 10 percent (10%) of the Trespass Fee, excluding other fees and taxes, and is automatically deducted from the payout to the Host. For Hosts who were referred to EntryG8 by an independent, unaffiliated third-party, provided the Host has posted an active listing on the EntryG8 Platform, EntryG8 will pay up to 100 percent (100%) of the Host Service Fee to the Referring Party for booking payments that occur within a twelve-month period following the post. This ‚ÄúReferral Fee‚Äù is available for the Host‚Äôs first twelve months on EntryG8, is not renewable, is provided to a single referral entity, and is not transferrable.
6.5 The Guest Service Fee is 10 percent (10%) of the Trespass Fee, excluding other fees and taxes, and is paid directly by the Guest to EntryG8 at the time of booking.
6.6 The Guest must also pay the third-party payment service fee (e.g., PayPal, Visa, etc.) for the amount of the booking transaction. This amount is typically no more than 3 percent (3%).
7.1 When creating a Listing through the EntryG8 Platform you must (i) provide complete and accurate information about your Host Service (such as listing description, location, and calendar availability), (ii) disclose any deficiencies, restrictions (such as property rules) and requirements that apply (such as any minimum age, proficiency or fitness requirements for an Experience) and (iii) provide any other pertinent information requested by EntryG8. You are responsible for keeping your Listing information (including calendar availability) up-to-date at all times.
7.2 You are solely responsible for setting a price (including any Taxes if applicable) for your Listing (‚ÄúTrespass Fee‚Äù). Once a Guest requests a booking of your Listing, you may not request that the Guest pays a higher price than in the booking request.
7.3 Any terms and conditions included in your Listing, in particular in relation to cancellations, must not conflict with these Terms or the cancellation policy you have selected for your Listing.
7.4 Pictures, animations or videos (collectively, "Images") used in your Listings must accurately reflect the quality and condition of your Host Services. EntryG8 reserves the right to require that Listings have a minimum number of Images of a certain format, size and resolution.
7.5 The placement and ranking of Listings in search results on the EntryG8 Platform may vary and depend on a variety of factors, such as Guest search parameters and preferences, Host requirements, price and calendar availability, number and quality of Images, customer service and cancellation history, Reviews and Ratings, type of Host Service, and/or ease of booking.
7.6 When you accept or have pre-approved a booking request by a Guest, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with the Guest and are required to provide your Host Service(s) to the Guest as described in your Listing when the booking request is made. You also agree to pay the applicable Host Fee and any applicable Taxes, which will be collected pursuant to the Payments Terms.
7.7 EntryG8 recommends that Hosts obtain appropriate insurance for their Host Services. Please review any respective insurance policy carefully, and in particular make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Guests (and the individuals the Guest has booked for, if applicable) while staying at your Accommodation or participating in your Experience, Event or other Host Service.
7.8 You may only list one Accommodation per Listing.
7.9 If you choose to require a security deposit for your Accommodation, you must specify this in your Listing ("Security Deposit"). Hosts are not allowed to ask for a Security Deposit after a booking has been confirmed or outside of the EntryG8 Platform. EntryG8 will use commercially reasonable efforts to address Hosts‚Äô requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but EntryG8 is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Hosts related to Security Deposits.
7.10 You represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or a Guest's use of, an Accommodation will (i) not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as homeowners association or other agreements, and (ii) comply with all applicable laws (such as zoning laws), Tax requirements, and other rules and regulations (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations). As a Host, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who reside at or are otherwise present at the Accommodation at your request or invitation, excluding the Guest (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Accommodation, if applicable).
7.11 To list an Experience or other Host Service, you must create a Listing and submit the Experience or Host Service to EntryG8. To be considered for publishing on the EntryG8 Platform, Experiences or other Host Services must at all times meet the quality standards for Experiences and meet Guest demand. EntryG8 reserves the right to decide, in its sole discretion, if a submitted Experience or other Host Service will be published on the EntryG8 Platform.
7.12 When listing an Experience or other Host Service you must, where applicable, fully educate and inform Guests about (i) any risks inherent to the Experience or other Host Service, (ii) any requirements for participation, such as the minimum age, related skills, level of fitness or other requirements, and (iii) anything else they may need to know to safely participate in the Experience or other Host Service (including dress codes, equipment, special certifications or licenses, etc.).
7.13 If you wish to list an Experience on behalf of a Nonprofit (‚ÄúSocial Impact Experience‚Äù), you must comply with the eligibility requirements for hosting a Social Impact Experience. When listing a Social Impact Experience you (i) represent and warrant that you are duly authorized to act on behalf of your Nonprofit and (ii) acknowledge and agree that all payouts will be directed to an account owned by your Nonprofit. You and your Nonprofit acknowledge that listing a Social Impact Experience does not create a commercial fundraising or co-venturer, or charitable trust relationship with EntryG8 and EntryG8 is not a professional fundraiser or commercial participator. Nonprofits, and not EntryG8, are responsible for determining what, if any, portion of their Trespass Fee is a charitable contribution and for providing Guests charitable tax receipts for any applicable charitable contributions. You and your Nonprofit are solely responsible for complying with all laws that apply to your organization and your Social Impact Experience.
7.14 You represent and warrant that you (i) understand and comply with all laws, rules and regulations that may apply to your Experience or other Host Service(s), and (ii) will obtain any required licenses, permits, or registrations prior to providing your Experience or other Host Service(s).
7.15 You must provide an Experience or other Host Service in person and may not allow any third party to provide the Experience or other Host Service on your behalf, unless authorized by EntryG8.
8.1 Subject to meeting any requirements (such as completing any verification processes) set by the Host or EntryG8, you can book a Listing available on the EntryG8 Platform by following the respective booking process. All applicable fees, including the Trespass Fee, Security Deposit (if applicable), Guest Fee and any applicable Taxes (collectively, ‚ÄúTotal Fees‚Äù) will be presented to you prior to booking a Listing. You agree to pay the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your EntryG8 Account.
8.2 Upon receipt of a booking confirmation from EntryG8, a legally binding agreement is formed between you and your Host, subject to any additional terms and conditions of the Host that apply, including in particular the applicable cancellation policy and any rules and restrictions specified in the Listing. EntryG8 Payments will collect the Total Fees at the time of the booking request or upon the Host‚Äôs confirmation pursuant to the Payments Terms.
8.3 If you book a Host Service on behalf of additional guests, you are required to ensure that every additional guest meets any requirements set by the Host, and is made aware of and agrees to these Terms and any terms and conditions, rules and restrictions set by the Host. If you are booking for an additional guest who is a minor, you represent and warrant that you are legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor. Minors may only participate in an Experience or other Host Service if accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.
8.4 You understand that a confirmed booking is a limited license granted to you by the Host to enter, occupy and use the property described in the Listing for the duration of your stay, during which time the Host retains the right to re-enter the property, in accordance with your agreement with the Host.
8.5 You agree to leave the Host‚Äôs property no later than the departure time that the Host specifies in the Listing or such other time as mutually agreed upon between you and the Host. If you stay past the agreed upon departure time without the Host's consent (‚ÄúOverstay‚Äù), you no longer have a license to stay at the Host‚Äôs property and the Host is entitled to make you leave in a manner consistent with applicable law. In addition, you agree to pay, if requested by the Host, for each period (e.g., hour for hourly Listings or day for daily Listings, or any portion thereof) that you Overstay, an additional fee of up to two (2) times the average Trespass Fee originally paid by you to cover the inconvenience suffered by the Host, plus all applicable Guest Fees, Taxes, and any legal expenses incurred by the Host to make you leave (collectively, "Overstay Fees"). Overstay Fees for late departures on the checkout date that do not impact upcoming bookings may be limited to the additional costs incurred by the Host as a result of such Overstay. EntryG8 Payments will collect Overstay Fees from you pursuant to the Payments Terms. A Security Deposit, if required by a Host, may be applied to any Overstay Fees due for a Guest‚Äôs Overstay.
8.6 You should carefully review the description of any Experience or other Host Service you intend to book to ensure you (and any additional guests you are booking for) meet any minimum age, proficiency, fitness or other requirements which the Host has specified in their Listing. You are required to inform the Host of any medical or physical conditions, or other circumstances that may impact your and any additional guest‚Äôs ability to safely participate in any Experience or other Host Service. In addition, certain laws, like the minimum legal drinking age in the location of the Experience or other Host Service, may also apply. You are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to your participation in an Experience or other Host Service.
8.7 Before and during an Experience or other Host Service you must at all times adhere to the Hosts‚Äô instructions.
8.8 You may not bring any additional individuals to an Experience or other Host Service unless such an individual was added by you as an additional guest during the booking process on the EntryG8 Platform.
9.1 Hosts and Guests are responsible for any modifications to a booking that they make via the EntryG8 Platform or direct EntryG8 customer service to make ("Booking Modifications"), and agree to pay any additional Trespass Fees, Host Fees or Guest Fees and/or Taxes associated with such Booking Modifications.
9.2 Guests can cancel a confirmed booking at any time subject to the Listing‚Äôs cancellation policy, and EntryG8 Payments will provide any refund to the Guest in accordance with such cancellation policy. Unless extenuating circumstances exist, any amounts due to the Host under the applicable cancellation policy will be remitted to the Host by EntryG8 Payments pursuant to the Payments Terms.
9.3 If a Host cancels a confirmed booking, the Guest will receive a full refund of the Total Fees for such booking and EntryG8 may publish an automated review on the Listing cancelled by the Host indicating that a booking was cancelled. In addition, EntryG8 may (i) keep the calendar for the Listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled booking, and/or (ii) impose a cancellation fee, unless the Host has a valid reason for cancelling the booking pursuant to EntryG8‚Äôs Extenuating Circumstances Policy or has legitimate concerns about the Guest‚Äôs behavior.
9.4 EntryG8 Experiences and Host Services are based upon outdoor recreational activities. As such, inclement weather may occur and neither Host nor Guest are obligated to cancel a booking. However, given that inclement weather may create an unsafe or uncomfortable scenario for Guests, Hosts may modify or cancel a Host Service. If there is a substantial change in the itinerary or the Host Service needs to be cancelled, EntryG8 will work with the Host to provide Guests an alternative date for the Host Service, an appropriate refund or a rebooking.
9.5 In certain circumstances, EntryG8 may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary to cancel a confirmed booking and make appropriate refund and payout decisions. This may be for reasons set forth in EntryG8's Extenuating Circumstances Policy or (i) where EntryG8 believes in good faith, while taking the legitimate interests of both parties into account, this is necessary to avoid significant harm to EntryG8, other Members, third parties or property, or (ii) for any of the reasons set out in these Terms.
9.6 If a Guest suffers a Travel Issue pursuant to the Guest Refund Policy, EntryG8 may determine, in its sole discretion, to refund the Guest part or all of the Total Fees in accordance with the Guest Refund Policy.
9.7 Members may use the Resolution Center to send or request money for refunds, additional Host Services, or Damage Claims related to bookings. You agree to pay all amounts sent through the Resolution Center in connection with your EntryG8 Account, and EntryG8 Payments will handle all such payments pursuant to the Payments Terms.
10.1 Within a certain timeframe after completing a booking, Guests and Hosts can leave a public review (‚ÄúReview‚Äù) and submit a rating (‚ÄúRating‚Äù) about each other. Any Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinion of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of EntryG8. Ratings and Reviews are not verified by EntryG8 for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.
10.2 Ratings and Reviews by Guests and Hosts must be fair, truthful and factual and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and Reviews must comply with EntryG8‚Äôs Content Policy and Extortion Policy.

Where EntryG8 is facilitating Collection and Remittance, Hosts are not permitted to collect any Occupancy Taxes being collected by EntryG8 relating to their Listings in that jurisdiction.
14.5 You agree that any claim or cause of action relating to EntryG8's facilitation of Collection and Remittance of Occupancy Taxes shall not extend to any supplier or vendor that may be used by EntryG8 in connection with facilitation of Collection and Remittance, if any.

14.6 EntryG8 reserves the right, with prior notice to Hosts, to cease the Collection and Remittance in any jurisdiction for any reason at which point Hosts and Guests are once again solely responsible and liable for the collection and/or remittance of any and all Occupancy Taxes that may apply to Listings in that jurisdiction.

If you are bringing a minor as an additional guest, you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor throughout the duration of your Host Service and to the maximum extent permitted by law, you agree to release and hold harmless EntryG8 from all liabilities and claims that arise in any way from any injury, death, loss or harm that occurs to that minor during the Host Service or in any way related to your Host Service.
The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
18.1 You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the EntryG8 Platform and Collective Content, your publishing or booking of any Listing via the EntryG8 Platform, your use of any Host‚Äôs property, participation in any Experience or use of any other Host Service or any other interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online remains with you. Neither EntryG8 nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the EntryG8 Platform or Collective Content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Terms, (ii) from the use of or inability to use the EntryG8 Platform or Collective Content, (iii) from any communications, interactions or meetings with other Members or other persons with whom you communicate, interact or meet with as a result of your use of the EntryG8 Platform, or (iv) from your publishing or booking of a Listing, including the provision or use of a Listing‚Äôs Host Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not EntryG8 has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. In no event will EntryG8‚Äôs aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms and your use of the EntryG8 Platform including, but not limited to, from your publishing or booking of any Listings via the EntryG8 Platform, or from the use of or inability to use the EntryG8 Platform or Collective Content and in connection with any Host‚Äôs property, Experiences or other Host Service, or interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the EntryG8 Platform as a Guest in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are a Host, the amounts paid by EntryG8 to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred U.S. dollars (US$100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between EntryG8 and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
You agree to release, defend (at EntryG8‚Äôs option), indemnify, and hold EntryG8 and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your breach of these Terms or our Policies or Standards, (ii) your improper use of the EntryG8 Platform or any EntryG8 Services, (iii) your interaction with any Member, stay at or use of a Host‚Äôs property, participation in an Experience or other Host Service, including without limitation any injuries, losses or damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of such interaction, stay, participation or use, (iv) EntryG8‚Äôs Collection and Remittance of Occupancy Taxes, or (v) your breach of any laws, regulations or third party rights.
20.1 This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement shall apply if you (i) reside in the United States; or (ii) do not reside in the United States, but bring any claim against EntryG8 in the United States (to the extent not in conflict with Section 21).
20.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. EntryG8 is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom Section 19.1 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with EntryG8‚Äôs customer service team, and (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (‚ÄúAAA‚Äù) using its specially designed Consumer Arbitration Rules (as modified by this Section 19). Specifically, the process provides:
- Claims can be filed with AAA online (www.adr.org);
- Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator;
- Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship with any party;
- Parties retain the right to seek relief in small claims court for certain claims, at their option;
- The initial filing fee for the consumer is capped at $200;
- The consumer gets to elect the hearing location and can elect to participate live, by phone, video conference, or, for claims under $25,000, by the submission of documents;
- The arbitrator can grant any remedy that the parties could have received in court to resolve the party‚Äôs individual claim.
20.3 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and EntryG8 each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us; you can contact EntryG8‚Äôs customer service team by emailing us. If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.
20.4 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and EntryG8 mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or to the use of the EntryG8 Platform, the Host Services, or the Collective Content (collectively, ‚ÄúDisputes‚Äù) will be settled by binding arbitration (the ‚ÄúArbitration Agreement‚Äù). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and EntryG8 agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
20.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and EntryG8 each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party‚Äôs copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) Any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack).
20.6 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the ‚ÄúAAA Rules‚Äú) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1‚Äì800‚Äì778‚Äì7879.
20.7 Modification to AAA Rules - Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, EntryG8 agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option, (a) in the county where you reside; (b) in Ada County, Idaho; (c) in any other location to which you and EntryG8 both agree; (d) via phone or video conference; or (e) for any claim or counterclaim under $25,000, by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
20.8 Modification of AAA Rules - Attorney‚Äôs Fees and Costs. You may be entitled to seek an award of attorney fees and expenses if you prevail in arbitration, to the extent provided under applicable law and the AAA rules. Unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous or filed for the purpose of harassment, EntryG8 agrees it will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law or the AAA rules, to recover attorneys‚Äô fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
20.9 Arbitrator‚Äôs Decision. The arbitrator‚Äôs decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant‚Äôs individual claim.
20.10 Jury Trial Waiver. You and EntryG8 acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
20.11 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and EntryG8 acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney-general action, or any other representative proceeding as to all Disputes. Further, unless you and EntryG8 both otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party‚Äôs claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this paragraph is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement will be deemed void with respect to such Dispute.
20.12 Severability. In the event that any portion of this Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
20.13 Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 3 (‚ÄúModification of these Terms‚Äù), if EntryG8 changes this Section 19 (‚ÄúDispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement‚Äù) after the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) within thirty (30) days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the ‚ÄúLast Updated‚Äù date above or in the date of EntryG8‚Äôs email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and EntryG8 in accordance with the provisions of the ‚ÄúDispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement‚Äù section as of the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
20.14 Survival. Except as provided in Section 19.12 and subject to Section 15.8, this Section 19 will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the EntryG8 Platform or terminate your EntryG8 Account.
We welcome and encourage you to provide feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the EntryG8 Platform (‚ÄúFeedback‚Äú). You may submit Feedback by emailing us, through the ‚ÄúContact‚Äù section of the EntryG8 Platform, or by other means of communication. Any Feedback you submit to us will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. By submitting Feedback to us, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.
22.1 These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Idaho and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) must be brought in state or federal court in Boise, Idaho, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Boise, Idaho.
23.1 Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions, policies, guidelines or standards, these Terms constitute the entire Agreement between EntryG8 and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between EntryG8 and you in relation to the access to and use of the EntryG8 Platform.
23.2 No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and EntryG8 as a result of this Agreement or your use of the EntryG8 Platform.
23.3 These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties.
23.4 If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
23.5 EntryG8‚Äôs failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
23.6 You may not assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and your rights and obligations hereunder without EntryG8's prior written consent. EntryG8 may without restriction assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and any rights and obligations hereunder, at its sole discretion, with 30 days prior notice. Your right to terminate this Agreement at any time remains unaffected.
23.7 Unless specified otherwise, any notices or other communications to Members permitted or required under this Agreement, will be in writing and given by EntryG8 via email or EntryG8 Platform notification.
23.8 If you have any questions about these Terms please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

3.2 Sharing between Hosts and Guests.
To help facilitate bookings, we may share your information with other Members as follows:
· When you as a Guest submit a booking request, certain information about you is shared with the Host, including your full name, the full name of any additional Guests, your cancellation history, and other information you agree to share.

· When you as a Host have a confirmed booking, certain information is shared with the Guest to coordinate the booking, such as your full name, phone number, and Accommodation or Experience address.
We don’t share your billing and payout information with other Members.
3.3 Profiles, Listings, and other Public Information.
The EntryG8 Platform lets you publish information that is visible to the general public. For example:
· Parts of your public profile page, such as your first name, your description, and city, are publicly visible to others.
· Public Listing pages are publicly visible and include information such as the Accommodation or Experience’s approximate location (neighborhood and city), Listing description, calendar availability, the Host public profile photo, aggregated demand information (like page views over a period of time), and any additional information the Host chooses to share.
· After completing a booking, Guests and Hosts may write reviews and rate each other. Reviews are a part of your public profile page.
· If you submit content in a public forum or social media post, or use a similar feature on the EntryG8 Platform, that content is publicly visible.
Information you share publicly on the EntryG8 Platform may be indexed through third party search engines. In some cases, you may opt-out of this feature in your Account settings. If you change your settings or your public-facing content, these search engines may not update their databases. We do not control the practices of third party search engines, and they may use caches containing your outdated information.
3.4 Service Providers.
3.5 Additional Services by Hosts.
Hosts may use third party services available through the EntryG8 Platform to assist with managing their Accommodation or providing additional services. Hosts may use features on the EntryG8 Platform to share information about the Guest (like arrival and departure dates, Guest name, Guest phone number, and Guest anonymized email address) with that third party service provider for the purposes of coordinating the stay, managing the Accommodation, or delivering other services.
3.6 EntryG8 Payments.
EntryG8 may share your personal information to: (i) provide the Payment Services, (ii) facilitate your use of the EntryG8 Platform, and (iii) jointly market products or services to you with other financial third parties with whom EntryG8 has a formal agreement.

We will attempt to notify Members about these requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon EntryG8’s property, its Members and the Platform (collectively, “Risk Scenarios”). In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that Member about the request after the fact if we determine in good faith that we are no longer legally prohibited from doing so and that no Risk Scenarios apply.
We may display parts of the EntryG8 Platform (e.g., your Listing page) on sites operated by EntryG8’s business partners, using technologies such as widgets or APIs. If your Listings are displayed on a partner’s site, information from your public profile page may also be displayed.
3.9 Tax Authorities.
In jurisdictions where we facilitate the Collection and Remittance of Occupancy Taxes as described in the “Taxes” section of the Terms of Service, Hosts and Guests expressly grant us permission, without further notice, to disclose Hosts’ and Guests’ data and other information relating to them or to their transactions, bookings, Accommodations and Occupancy Taxes to the relevant tax authority, including, but not limited to, the Host or Guest’s name, listing addresses, transaction dates and amounts, tax identification number(s), the amount of taxes received (or due) by Hosts from Guests, and contact information.

4. OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
4.1 Analyzing your Communications.
We may review, scan, or analyze your communications on the EntryG8 Platform for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research, and customer support purposes. For example, as part of our fraud prevention efforts, we scan and analyze messages to mask contact information and references to other websites. In some cases, we may also scan, review, or analyze messages to debug, improve, and expand product offerings. We use automated methods where reasonably possible. However, occasionally we may need to manually review some communications, such as for fraud investigations and customer support, or to assess and improve the functionality of these automated tools. We will not review, scan, or analyze your communications to send third party marketing messages to you, and we will not sell reviews or analyses of these communications.
4.2 Linking Third Party Accounts.
You may link your EntryG8 Account with your account at a third party social networking service. Your contacts on these third party services are referred to as “Friends.” When you create this link:

7. OPERATING GLOBALLY
We are continuously implementing and updating administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your information against unauthorized access, loss, destruction, or alteration.
