THIS FOLLOWING USER AGREEMENT DESCRIBES THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ON WHICH TREPR, LTD. OFFERS YOU ACCESS TO THE TREPR PLATFORM.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS. THESE INCLUDE VARIOUS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS, A CLAUSE THAT GOVERNS THE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF DISPUTES, AND OBLIGATIONS TO COMPLY WITH APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS. IN PARTICULAR, TRAVELERS SHOULD UNDERSTAND HOW THE LAWS WORK IN THEIR RESPECTIVE COUNTRIES AND JURISDICTION. TRAVELERS SHOULD REVIEW LOCAL LAWS BEFORE LISTING THEIR TRAVEL SERVICE INTEREST IN TREPR.

"Seeker" means a user who requests People, Package and/or Product services from Traveler via the Site, Application or Services, or a user who consumes such services by Listing his/her Travel service needs.
"Traveler" means a user who creates People, Package and/or Product services Listing via the Site, Application and Services, or a User who provides such Travel services.

"Collective Content" means User Content and Trepr Content.
"Content" means text, graphics, images, music, software (excluding the Application), audio, video, information or other materials.
"Listing" means Travel services that are listed by a Traveler/Seeker via the Site, Application, and Services.
"People Service" means a service for persons who want to travel different places in the world if someone accompanies them. Some of the common reasons are they travel for the first time, can't go to a new place without assistance, not aware of travel formalities/procedure, unfamiliar about travel etiquettes/culture of new place, uneasiness/not accustomed to multiple transits in between source and destination, find hard to handle luggage alone and/or simply can't speak the local language or converse with authorities if issue arises at the time of travel. This service helps people to travel anywhere accompanied by a traveler, who travels on that route and wishes to accompany people, rather than every time accompanied by their loved ones or beseech known people for travel needs.
"Package Service" means a service for packages that need to be transported to different places in the world only through postal, mail, courier or taken with person, who possess them, with exorbitant cost spent. People don't always prefer to send much needed, but low priced, items through postal for a charge more than the actual item's worth. This service helps packages delivered by a traveler, who travels on same route and wishes to carry package, rather than every time packages wait for its possessor or seek known person to carry and to reach their destination.
"Product Service" means a service for people who want to purchase products that are available in other countries and transported to different places in the world only through postal, courier or mail with exorbitant cost spent and undergoes enormous delay to reach destination due to custom & excise checks at imported country. Thus, people don't always prefer to buy much needed products through international online websites. Instead, this service helps people to get their products purchased in a remote location by a traveler, packed & carried in travel and delivered at the destination rather than people travel to the other places spending their time, effort and cost.
"Passenger" means persons who are transported/accompanied by Traveler from origin to destination as part of people service.
"Package" or "Baggage" or "Goods" or "Items" or "Commodity" means things which are carried, transported and delivered by traveler from origin to destination as part of package service.
"Products" means things which are purchased, carried, transported and delivered by traveler from origin to destination as part of product service.
"Concierge" or "Tasks" or "Activities" means work that is performed by Traveler as part of product service.
"Service Request Period" means the time period starting from the time when a Travel service is requested by a Seeker/Traveler, within which a Seeker/Traveler may decide whether to confirm or reject that request, as stated on the Site, Application or Services. Different Travel service request periods may apply in different places (as determined by Trepr in its sole discretion).
"Escrow Payment Service" means a contractual arrangement in which Trepr (third party) receives and disburses money or documents for the primary transacting parties (Seeker and Trepr), with the disbursement dependent on conditions agreed to by the transacting parties, or an account established by a Trepr for holding funds on behalf of the Trepr's principal until consummation or termination of a transaction; or, a trust account held in the Seeker's name to pay obligations.
"Tax" or "Taxes" mean any sales taxes, value added taxes (VAT), goods and service taxes (GST), and fees that services provider/Trepr may be required by law to collect and remit to governmental agencies, and other similar municipal, state, federal and national indirect or other withholding and personal or corporate income taxes.

You are responsible for obtaining the data network access necessary to use the Services. Your mobile network's data and messaging rates and fees may apply if you access or use the Services from a wireless-enabled device. You are responsible for acquiring and updating compatible hardware or devices necessary to access and use the Services and Applications and any updates thereto. Trepr does not guarantee that the Services, or any portion thereof, will function on any particular hardware or devices. In addition, the Services may be subject to malfunctions and delays inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications.
You understand that use of the Services may result in charges to you for the services or goods you receive from a Traveler/Third-Party Provider ("Charges"). After you have received services or goods obtained through your use of the Service, Trepr will facilitate your payment of the applicable Charges on behalf of the Third-Party Provider, as such Traveler/Third-Party Provider's limited payment collection agent. Payment of the Charges in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the Traveler/Third-Party Provider. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Trepr. You retain the right to request lower Charges from a Traveler/Third-Party Provider for services or goods received by you from such Traveler/Third-Party Provider at the time you receive such services or goods. Trepr will respond accordingly to any request from a Third-Party Provider to modify the Charges for a particular service or good.
All Charges are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by Trepr using the preferred payment method designated in your Account, after which Trepr will send you a receipt by email. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Trepr may, as the Third-Party Provider's limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available.
As between you and Trepr, Trepr reserves the right to establish, remove and/or revise Charges for any or all services or goods obtained through the use of the Services at any time in Trepr's sole discretion. Further, you acknowledge and agree that Charges applicable in certain geographical areas may increase substantially during times of high demand. Trepr will use reasonable efforts to inform you of Charges that may apply, provided that you will be responsible for Charges incurred under your Account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof. Trepr may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services or goods obtained through the use of the Services, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Services or the Charges applied to you.
This payment structure is intended to fully compensate the Third-Party Provider for the services or goods provided. Except with respect to Travel services requested through the Application, Trepr does not designate any portion of your payment as a tip or gratuity to the Traveler/Third-Party Provider. Any representation by Trepr (on Trepr's website, in the Application, or in Trepr's marketing materials) to the effect that tipping is "voluntary," "not required," and/or "included" in the payments you make for services or goods provided is not intended to suggest that Trepr provides any additional amounts, beyond those described above, to the Third-Party Provider. You understand and agree that, while you are free to provide additional payment as a gratuity to any Third-Party Provider who provides you with services or goods obtained through the Service, you are under no obligation to do so. Gratuities are voluntary. After you have received services or goods obtained through the Service, you will have the opportunity to rate your experience and leave additional feedback about your Traveler/Third-Party Provider, and Traveler will have the opportunity to rate you.
As a Seeker, you agree that any amounts charged following a service (a "Charge") are mandatory and due and payable immediately upon completion of the service. You as a Traveler, authorize Trepr to charge you an amount (as determined by Trepr in its sole discretion) for any loss/damages/harm made to Seeker or goods or related services even without your consent. Trepr has the authority and reserves the right to determine and modify pricing by posting applicable Charges to your market's Trepr Countries or Cities page. You are responsible for reviewing the applicable Trepr Cities page and shall be responsible for all Charges incurred under your User account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof. In all markets, Charges are not subject to minimum or maximum limits.a. Service Fees. Fees consist of a base price and incremental charges based on the duration and distance of Traveler's travel/effort to fulfill the request. For particularly short distances, minimum Services Fees may apply. Service Fees may be subject to a multiplier at times of high demand period ("High Demand Time") as determined by Trepr. We will use reasonable efforts to inform you of any High Demand Time multipliers in effect at the time you request a Travel service. b. Trust & Safety Fee. Trepr may assess a per-service "Trust & Safety Fee" to offset Trepr's expenses related to promoting trust and safety on the Trepr platform. Such expenses are dynamic and may or may not exceed Trepr's Trust & Safety Fee collections. Excess Trust & Safety Fee collections, if any, will be deemed general revenue. c. Cancellation Fees 1. Cancellation policies are the conditions under which Trepr will return money to a seeker upon the seeker cancelling the travel service. 2. Cancellation policies protect travelers in the event of unexpected seeker cancellations. Each listing on Trepr has a cancellation policy determined by Trepr. We strongly recommend reviewing all cancellation policies before making travel services. 3. You must agree to the Trepr's cancellation policy when submitting a travel service request. 4. If you already have an accepted travel service, you can find the cancellation policy on your itinerary. If you need to cancel your travel service, you'll be refunded according to Trepr's cancellation policy. If your traveler needs to cancel your travel service, you can choose to rebook with another traveler or to be fully refunded. 5. If you, as a Seeker, make a request but cancel it anytime 1 week before Traveler's travel or start of travel service, then you may not be charged and the amount withheld will be transferred back to your account within a commercially reasonable time. 6. If you, as a Seeker, make a request but cancel it within a week and before a day of Traveler's travel or start of travel service, then you may be charged only 10% of travel service fee and remaining withheld amount will be transferred back to your account within a commercially reasonable time, and the current travel service request will be void/cancelled. 7. If you, as a Seeker, make a request but cancel it within a day of Traveler's travel or start of travel service, then you may forfeit 50% of travel service fee and remaining withheld amount will be transferred back to your account, and the current travel service request will be void/cancelled. 8. If you, as a Seeker, make a request but cancel it after start of travel service, then you may forfeit the full travel service fee and no withheld amount will be transferred back to your account, and the current travel service request will be void/cancelled. 9. In the event that you, as a Seeker, cancel travel service request on the Trepr Platform repeatedly or frequently, or fail to support Traveler for your travel service in a timely manner, you agree to pay a full "Cancellation Fee". We may also assess a Cancellation Fee against you if we suspect that you have intentionally cancelled travel services to disrupt the Trepr Platform or the provision of Services, and it is possible that Trepr will cancel your profile temporarily or permanently. 10. If a Traveler accepts your travel service request but cancels later 1 week before start of travel service, Trepr will notify you about the changes, provide alternative Travelers for your travel service and refund entire amount withheld back to your account, within a commercially reasonable time, and the current travel service booking will be void/cancelled. 11. If a Traveler accepts your travel service request but cancels later within 1 week before start of travel service, Trepr will notify you about the changes immediately and recommend alternative Travelers for your travel service with highest priority. If you pick another Traveler for the same travel service and make a request, then your contract continues else the entire amount withheld will be transferred back to your account, within a commercially reasonable time, and the current travel service request will be void/cancelled. 12. Due to any last minute changes or ticket cancellation, if Traveler accepts your travel service request but doesn't show up on the travel day or at the time of start of travel service, please let us know through Trepr application or call us directly so that we will find immediate alternative for same travel service with highest priority, provide coupons 15 - 25 % service fee for next booking and transfer the entire amount withheld to your account, within a commercially reasonable time and the current travel service request will be void/cancelled. 13. In the case of People service, if Traveler doesn't show up at the start of travel service and you make reservation or book ticket in a transport based on Traveler's itinerary, then Trepr will not be responsible or will not reimburse for the ticket booked by you because travel arrangements must be coordinated between seeker and traveler and passenger can still continue the travel with the help of another Traveler or with airlines assistance. 14. In the case of Package service, if package is not delivered at the destination because goods that are carried violate any countries/state/province policy or seized by authorities, then Trepr will not reimburse for packages or held accountable. It is your responsibility to ensure any items/goods in the package do not violate policy or restricted by any countries/state/province/authorities in any place traveler's travel. In this scenario, we will obtain seizure/violation notice/letter provided by respective authorities from traveler and help you in formalities to get them back from authorities. 15. In the case of Package service, if package is not delivered at the destination even though it clears all travel formalities, please let us know through Trepr application or call us directly so that we will transfer the entire service charges withheld back to your account, within a commercially reasonable time, and Traveler will be charged a percentage % or full fee or flat amount, for loss/damage/harm caused to property, same amount will be credit to seeker as a compensation for the loss/damage/harm incurred (NOTE: the charges or flat amount will be determined by Trepr based on the travel service requested). 16. In the case of Product service, if concierge services are not started on time and delayed without prior notice or concurrence by seeker, please let us know through Trepr application or call us directly so that we will transfer the entire service charges withheld back to your account, within a commercially reasonable time, and Traveler will be charged a percentage % or full fee or flat amount, for loss/damage/harm caused to property, same amount will be credit to seeker as a compensation for the loss/damage/harm incurred (NOTE: the charges or flat amount will be determined by Trepr based on the travel service requested). 17. In the event that Traveler cancels Travel service requests on the Trepr Platform repeatedly or frequently, or fails to support Seeker for any Travel service in a timely manner, Traveler agrees to pay a full "Cancellation Fee". We may also assess a Cancellation Fee against Travelers if we suspect that they have intentionally cancelled Travel services to disrupt the Trepr Platform or the provision of Services. 18. If you, as a Traveler, cancel a confirmed Travel service, you agree that Trepr may apply penalties or consequences to you or your Listing, including (i) publishing an automated review on your Listing indicating that a Travel service reservation was cancelled, (ii) keeping the calendar for your Listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled Travel services, or (iii) imposing a cancellation fee (to be withheld from your future payouts or charged to the credit card on file in your Trepr Account). You will be notified of the situations in which a cancellation fee applies before you decide to cancel. 19. In the event of last minute cancellation or inappropriate conduct at the time of Travel service such as failing to accompany people of confirmed reservations, deliver the package, in same condition, at the destination, product (all tasks) not completed as promised, without mutual consent from Seeker, then Traveler agrees to pay part/flat or full "Cancellation Fee". In such cases, decisions made by Trepr is final and Traveler agrees to abide by cancellation policies defined by Trepr. 20. You agree that Trepr has no liability to pay/reimburse/compensate any user for any, including but not limited to, cancellations/ losses/damages or harm caused to life and property of Seekers or Travelers. However, Trepr makes all possible attempts to settle dispute between two parties if such cases arise. Hereby, you are indicating that you have read, and that you understand and agree to be bound by these cancellation/refund terms. d. Damage to items/goods/package/products As a Traveler, you are responsible for carrying the item/goods/package in condition as asked by Seeker in good faith without using, damaging, stealing, breaking or doing any type of harm to item/goods/package, and Trepr is not liable for any damages for any loss or harm to items/goods/package. Both Travelers and Sender agree to cooperate with and assist Trepr in good faith, and to provide Trepr with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Trepr, in connection with any complaints or disputes or claims made by users relating to transactions or with respect to any investigation undertaken by Trepr or a representative of Trepr regarding use or abuse of the Website, Application or the Services. e. Damage Fee. If the package is delivered not in same condition or any damage (except minor/reasonable) happens, then Traveler agrees to pay a "Damage Fee" of up to total cost of package(s), as mentioned in the listing by seeker, carried depending on the extent of the damage (as determined by Trepr in its sole discretion), towards replacing the items or fixing. Thus, every traveler is requested to verify and confirm fair price of the goods quoted in the listing before and after accepting service request but before start of service. Trepr reserves the right (but is not obligated) to verify or otherwise require documentation of damages prior to processing the Damage Fee. f. Other Charges. Other fees or charges that may arise to complete product services, shall be handled by Escrow payment service. Therefore, once Traveler finishes Seeker's concierge services all the withheld Seeker's money will be transferred to Traveler. Any surcharges may apply to your service, including: actual or anticipated airport fees, state or local fees, and processing fees for split payments. In addition, where required by law Trepr will collect applicable taxes. Any tips will be provided entirely to the applicable Traveler. g. Facilitation of Payments. All Charges are facilitated through a third-party payment processing service (e.g., Stripe, Inc., or Braintree, a division of PayPal, Inc.). Trepr may replace its third-party payment processing services without providing notice to you. Charges shall only be made through the Trepr Platform. Cash payments are strictly prohibited. h. No Refunds. Charges are assessed immediately following completion of the service to your authorized payment method. All Charges are non-refundable. This no-refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate usage of the Trepr Platform, any disruption to the Trepr Platform or Services, or any other reason whatsoever. i. As a Traveler, you will receive applicable Service Fees (net of Trepr's Administrative Fee, as discussed below) and any tips provided by Seekers to you for the Travel services you provide. Trepr will process all payments due to you through its Third-Party payments processor. You acknowledge and agree that such amounts shall not include any interest and will be net of any amounts that we are required to withhold by law. You expressly authorize Trepr to set the prices on your behalf for all Charges that apply to the provision of Travel services. Trepr reserves the right to withhold all or a portion of service fees if it believes that you have attempted to defraud or abuse Trepr or Trepr's payment systems. j. In exchange for permitting you to offer your Travel services through the Trepr Platform and marketplace as a server, you agree to pay Trepr (and permit Trepr to retain) a fee of up to 25% (the "Administrative Fee") of the Travel service fees paid by Seekers for such Services. In certain jurisdictions, including but not limited to London or New York, you agree to pay Trepr an Administrative Fee of up to 35% of service fees to cover additional operating costs. The amount of the applicable Administrative Fee will be communicated to you via email but is subject to change on a prospective basis at Trepr's discretion. k. Trepr, at its sole discretion, may make available promotions with different features to any Traveler or prospective Travelers. These promotions, unless made to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your Agreement or relationship with Trepr.
Trepr does not endorse any User or any Travel services. You understand that Travel service Descriptions or Verified Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of the credibility of Users and their Travel services at the time the images were submitted, which may change from time to time. Travel service Descriptions or Verified Images are therefore not an endorsement by Trepr of any Travel services or any User. Users are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and although Trepr may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of seekers or Travelers, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any User or the User's purported identity or background.
Any references in the Site, Application or Services to a User being "verified" or "connected" (or similar language) only indicate that the User has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Trepr about any User, including of the User's identity and whether the User is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Site, Application and Services. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to provide Travel service or to accept a Travel service request from Traveler, or to have any other interaction with any other User.
By using the Site, Application or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Users or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Users or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Trepr with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Users on the Site and Services regarding any Travel service requests or Listings made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Traveler against Trepr regarding the remittance of payments received from a Seeker by Trepr on behalf of a Traveler, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled "Limitation of Liability".
Using Trepr Platform, one user can request for a Travel service and other user can make the decision. If you are a Traveler and a Travel service is requested via the Site, Application or Services, then you will be required to either confirm or reject the request within the Travel service Request Period, otherwise the Travel service request will automatically expire. When a Travel service is requested via the Site, Application or Services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Seeker who has requested the Travel service, (ii) a link to the Seeker's Trepr Account profile page, (iii) if the Seeker and Traveler have both connected their Trepr accounts to SNS, the names of any users of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Seeker on such SNS, and (iv) an indication of whether or not the Seeker has provided other information to Trepr, such as a verified email address, connection to SNSs, or a government ID. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a Travel service request within the Travel service Request Period, any amounts collected by Trepr for the requested Travel service will be refunded to the applicable Seeker's credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. When you confirm a Travel service requested by a Seeker, Trepr will send you an email, text message or message via the Application confirming such Travel service, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services.
If you are a Seeker and you receive a response for Travel service need you posted via the Site, Application or Services, then you will be required to either confirm or reject the request within the Travel service Response Period, otherwise the Travel service request will automatically expire. When a Travel service is requested via the Site, Application or Services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Traveler who has requested the Travel service, (ii) a link to the Traveler's Trepr Account profile page, (iii) if the Seeker and Traveler have both connected their Trepr accounts to SNS, the names of any users of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Traveler on such SNS, and (iv) an indication of whether or not the Traveler has provided other information to Trepr, such as a verified email address, connection to SNSs, or a government ID. When you confirm a Travel service responded by a Traveler, Trepr will send you an email, text message or message via the Application confirming such Travel service, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services.
Trepr Payments will collect the Total Fees at the time of Travel service confirmation (i.e. when the Traveler confirms the Travel service request) and will initiate payment of the Service Fees (less Trepr's Traveler Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Traveler Fees, such as VAT in Europe) to the Traveler any time after 24 hours of completion of Travel service by Traveler. The time it takes for the Traveler to receive payouts may depend upon the payout method chosen by the Traveler. Some methods involve the use of third-party payment processors, who may impose their own additional charges for the use of their Travel services on the Travelers, including by deducting their charges from the payout amount.
If you owe or agree to pay any amount via Trepr Payments to Trepr (whether as a result of your Travel services provided or actions as a Seeker or otherwise), then Trepr Payments may (but is not obliged to) withhold the amount owing to Trepr from any payout amounts due to you as a Traveler, and use the withheld amount to set off the amount owed by you to Trepr. If Trepr Payments does so, then your obligation to pay Trepr will be extinguished to the extent of the amount withheld by Trepr Payments, and Trepr will cease to owe to you any obligations (including, but not limited to, any obligation to pay you) with respect to the amount withheld. In addition to the amount due, if your account is delinquent or you otherwise have chargebacks on your account, you may be charged fees that are incidental to our collection of these delinquent amounts and chargebacks. Such fees or charges may include collection fees, convenience fees, or other Third-Party charges. You hereby explicitly agree that all communication in relation to delinquent accounts will be made by electronic mail or by phone, as provided to Trepr by you. Such communication may be made by Trepr or by anyone on its behalf, including but not limited to a Third-Party collection agent.
Each Traveler hereby appoints Trepr Payments as the Traveler's limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Service Fees from Seekers.
Each Traveler agrees that payment made by a Seeker through Trepr Payments, shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Traveler, and the Traveler will make the Travel service available to the Seeker in the agreed-upon manner as if the Traveler has received the Service Fees. Each Traveler agrees that Trepr may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Traveler and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the Seeker to cancel the Travel service and (ii) refund (via Trepr Payments) to the Seeker that portion of the Service Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. Each Traveler understands that as Trepr Payments accepts payments from Seekers as the Traveler's limited payment collection agent and that Trepr Payments' obligation to pay the Traveler is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Seekers. Trepr does not guarantee payments to Travelers for amounts that have not been successfully received by Trepr Payments from Seekers. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Traveler, Trepr Payments assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Traveler.
Please note that Trepr does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you as a User acknowledge and agree that Trepr reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that Trepr will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.
The Travelers, not Trepr, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed Travel services and making available any Travel services requested through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Seeker, choose to enter into a transaction with a Traveler for the Travel service, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Traveler and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Travel service imposed by the Traveler. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Trepr, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Trepr is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, Trepr disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that Trepr is not a party to the agreement between you and the Traveler, Trepr Payments acts as the Traveler's payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Traveler. Upon your payment of the Total Fees to Trepr Payments, your payment obligation to the Traveler for the Service Fees is extinguished, and Trepr Payments is responsible for remitting the Service Fees (less the Traveler Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Traveler Fees, such as VAT in Europe), in the manner described in these Terms. In the event that Trepr Payments does not remit any such amounts as described in these Terms, such Traveler will have recourse only against such Trepr entity.
The Total Fees payable will be displayed to a Seeker before the Seeker sends a Travel service request to a Traveler. As noted above, the Traveler is required to either confirm or reject the Travel service request within the Travel service Request Period; otherwise, the requested Travel service will be automatically cancelled. If a requested Travel service is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Traveler), any amounts collected by Trepr Payments will be refunded to such Seeker, depending on the selections the Seeker makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Seeker's credit card will be released, if applicable.
You as a Seeker agree to pay Trepr for the Total Fees for any Travel service requested in connection with your Trepr Account if such requested Travel services are confirmed by the applicable Traveler. In order to establish a Travel service pending the applicable Traveler's confirmation of your requested Travel service, you understand and agree that Trepr Payments, on behalf of the Traveler, reserve the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar (£1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting (e.g. one euro or one British pound), to verify your credit card. As a general rule, Trepr Payments will collect the Total Fees due once Trepr receives confirmation of your Travel service from the applicable Traveler; if necessary, Total Fees may instead be collected at a later point. Please note that Trepr cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Seeker by his or her bank related to Trepr's collection of the Total Fees, and Trepr disclaims all liability in this regard.
In consideration for the use of Trepr's online marketplace and platform, Trepr charges the Service Fees. Where applicable, Taxes (such as VAT in Europe) may also be charged in respect of the Seeker Fees. Seeker Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees. Balances will be remitted by Trepr Payments to Travelers via PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods, as described on the Site or via the Application, in the Traveler's currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Traveler makes via the Site, Application and Services. Amounts may be rounded up or down as described the "Rounding Off" section below.
Please note that Trepr Payments, may impose or deduct foreign currency processing costs on or from any payments or payouts by Trepr in currencies other than GBP or U.S. dollars. More information on any such costs or deductions will be available via the Site and Application. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
In some instances, Seekers may be required to make recurring, incremental payments toward the Total Fees owed for a confirmed request before beginning the applicable Travel service (collectively, "Recurring Payments"). More information on Recurring Payments will be made available via the Site, Application and Services, if applicable. If Recurring Payments apply to a confirmed Request, then the Seeker authorizes Trepr Payments, on behalf of the Traveler, to collect the Total Fees and the Traveler agrees that such Trepr entity will initiate payouts to the Traveler, in the increments and at the frequency associated with the applicable Recurring Payments, each as identified on the Site, Application and Services.
Trepr may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from or to Seekers or Travelers to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (e.g. to the nearest pound, dollar, euro or other supported currency); for example, Trepr will round up an amount of £101.50 to £102.00, and £101.49 to $£101.00.
Some currencies are denominated in large numbers. In those cases, Trepr may determine the functional base unit in which those currencies are denominated to be 10, 100 or 1,000 of the currency; the corresponding examples for such currencies would be for Trepr to round up an amount of 1,045 up to 1,050 and 1,044 down to 1,040, or 35,450 up to 35,500 and 35,449 down to 35,400, or 837,500 up to 838,000 and 837,499 down to 837,000.
We will take steps to rectify any payment processing errors that we become aware of. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount.
Some Travelers may pledge to donate a portion of the funds they receive from confirmed Requests made via the Site, Application and Services to a particular cause or charity. We do not take any responsibility or liability for whether the Traveler does in fact make the donation he or she pledged to make. In such cases, the Traveler in question is responsible for his or her own compliance with all laws and regulations applicable to such pledges and/or fund-raising.
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate tax information from our Travelers, or to withhold taxes from payouts to Travelers, or both. For instance, HMRC regulations stipulate that we must collect a PAYE forms: P45, P60, P11D from UK Travelers, (IRS Form W-9 from US Travelers), and an appropriate IRS Form W-8 (e.g. Form W-8BEN) from non-US Travelers. You as a Traveler are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you as a Traveler fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold taxes from payments to you (e.g. where you are a US Traveler and you fail to provide US government with a completed IRS Form W-9), we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both.
You as a Traveler understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. Trepr cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Users.
Where applicable, or based upon request from a Traveler, Trepr may issue a valid VAT invoice to such Traveler. You understand and acknowledge that appropriate governmental agencies, departments or authorities (the "Tax Authority") where your Travel service begins or currency charged may require Taxes to be collected from Seekers or Travelers on the amount paid for the Travel services offered, and to be remitted to the respective Tax Authority. The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these taxes may be required to be collected and remitted as a percentage of the service Fees set by Trepr, a set amount per day, or other variations, and are sometimes called "postal taxes," "carrier taxes," "transportation taxes," or "Value Added taxes," (hereafter, "Service Taxes").
Seekers agree that a confirmed reservation is merely a license granted by the Traveler to the Seeker to obtain Travel services for the number of requests made through the Site, Application or Services and in accordance with the User's agreement with the Traveler. If a Seeker request additional service, which are not listed by Traveler or offered without Trepr's agreement, then Seekers agree that the Trepr can charge the Seeker, for each additional service to cover the inconvenience suffered by the Traveler, plus all applicable Service Fees, Taxes. Seekers agree that Trepr Payments, in its role as limited collection agent for the Traveler, shall charge the Seeker's credit card or other payment methods it has on file to collect these additional fees. In addition, Trepr Payments may recover any costs and expenses it incurs in collecting the Additional fees by charging the Seeker's credit card or other payment method on file.
Trepr's online platform facilitates requests between Seekers and Travelers who may prefer to pay and to receive payments in different currencies, which may require foreign currency conversions to accommodate these differing currency preferences. Although the Trepr platform allows seekers to view the price of Listings in a number of currencies, the currencies available for seekers to make and receive payments may be limited, and may not include the default currency in any given geographic location. Each foreign currency conversion is processed at a foreign currency conversion rate. This rate generally refers to the amount of one currency that must be paid to buy a certain amount of another currency at a given time. For example, if it costs US$125.00 to buy €100.00, the currency conversion rate of US dollars to Euros would be 1.25, and the currency conversion rate from Euros to US dollars would be 0.8. Currency conversion rates will vary from time to time.
"Display Currency" means the currency in which seekers view Listing prices on the Trepr platform. Seekers may choose and change the Display Currency in order to view the pricing for a Listing in a number of different supported currencies.
"Request Currency" means the currency in which a Seeker has to pay for his or her Request. At the time the Seeker submits a Travel service request, the Trepr platform will select the Currency, based on the country of origin of Travel services and the payment methods available for that country. Trepr supports only a certain number of currencies. The Currency for a service may be different from the relevant Listing Currency.
"Listing Currency" means the currency in which a Listing's price is set. The Listing Currency is set by the Trepr.
"Payout Currency" means the currency in which a Traveler's payout will be paid to the Traveler. The Payout Currency is set by the Traveler.
"Base Exchange Rate" means a system-wide rate used by Trepr for foreign currency conversion that is in effect at the time the foreign currency conversion is processed, and does not include any fee or mark-up by Trepr. Trepr establishes the Base Exchange Rate using data from one or more third parties such as PayPal (http://www.paypal.com).
"Adjusted Exchange Rate" means a rate for foreign currency conversion that is calculated by adding a mark-up to the Base Exchange Rate. This mark-up represents a charge imposed by Trepr for its holding costs and foreign currency risks.
Trepr Payments will process a foreign currency conversion in the following situations:a. The Display Currency is different from the Listing Currency when a seeker views a Listing: Trepr will calculate the estimated Total Fees in the Display Currency, by applying either the Base Exchange Rate or the Adjusted Exchange Rate at the time of the view to the estimated Total Fees in the Listing Currency. The Adjusted Exchange Rate will be applied if the Display Currency is a supported Request Currency, and it is different from the Listing Currency. Otherwise, the Base Exchange Rate will be applied. b. The Request Currency is different from the Listing Currency when a Seeker submits a Travel service request for a Listing: Trepr will calculate the Total Fees in the Request Currency, by applying either the Base Exchange Rate or the Adjusted Exchange Rate at the time of the Travel service request to the Total Fees in the Listing Currency. The Seeker will be able to view the actual exchange rate applied. The Seeker Fee, which is a percentage of the applicable Service Fees, will be calculated based on the Service Fees in the Request Currency (i.e. after conversion from the Listing Currency). The Adjusted Exchange Rate will be applied if the Display Currency is the same as the Request Currency, and it is different from the Listing Currency for the Listing. Otherwise, the Base Exchange Rate will be applied. c. The Payout Currency is different from the Listing Currency when Trepr initiates a payout: generally, Trepr will calculate the payout to the Traveler, by applying the Base Exchange Rate on the date that Trepr initiates the payout to the Service Fees (less Trepr's Traveler Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Traveler Fees, such as VAT in Europe) in the Listing Currency. The Traveler will be able to view the actual exchange rate applied in his or her transaction history in the Site or Application. In some cases where the payout method selected by the Traveler involves certain third-party payment processors (such as Western Union), (i) Trepr will send the payout amount to the processor in a major currency (e.g. GBP or US dollars), by applying the relevant Base Exchange Rate for the Listing Currency to that major currency, (ii) the Traveler will be able to view the payout amount sent by Trepr in that major currency in his or her transaction history in the Site or Application, and (iii) the processor will calculate the actual payout to the Traveler by applying its own foreign currency conversion rate for that major currency to the Payout Currency. d. When a confirmed Request is modified or cancelled, and there had been a foreign currency conversion when the Request was submitted: the foreign currency conversion for any additional payments required of the Seeker or any refund to the Seeker will be processed at the same rate as applied to the earlier payment by the Seeker.
When you as a Seeker submit a Travel service request for a Listing, you will be able to view the actual exchange rate used to calculate the Total Fees in the Request Currency. Where the Adjusted Exchange Rate is applied, you will be able to view the markup included in the rate. The actual exchange rate (and any markup included in the rate) will also be stated in the billing receipt for your Request.
Trepr updates the Base Exchange Rate on a regular basis, but not on a real-time basis. In particular, Trepr does not always change the Base Exchange Rate immediately when its costs of foreign exchange change. Accordingly, the Base Exchange Rate may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time a foreign currency conversion is processed.
Please note that your payment company (for example, your credit or bank card issuer) will use a currency conversion rate for and may impose a currency conversion fee on your payment or payout, if your card or bank account is denominated in a currency that is different from the Request Currency or the Payout Currency respectively. Similarly, third-party payment processors may also use a currency conversion rate for or impose a currency conversion fee on your payment or payout. All of these currency conversion rates and fees are not controlled by or known to Trepr.

You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Trepr's prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Trepr may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction.

For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
These Terms and your use of the Services will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a court located in Northern Ireland or a United kingdom District Court for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and Trepr agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Trepr are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class user in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Trepr otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by The London Court of International Arbitration ("LCIA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "LCIA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The LCIA Rules are available at http://www.lcia.org/Dispute_Resolution_Services/lcia-arbitration-rules-2014.aspx or by calling the LCIA at +44 (0) 20 7936 6200.) The International Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the LCIA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the country of Northern Ireland, UK and will be selected by the parties from the LCIA 's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the LCIA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the LCIA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Trepr otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed £500, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Trepr submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds £500, your right to a hearing will be determined by the LCIA Rules. Subject to the LCIA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator's Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the LCIA Rules. The arbitrator's 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 having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorney's fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Trepr will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any LCIA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the LCIA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed £5,000, Trepr will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in LICA).
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Modification" section above, if Trepr changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first 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 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated Date" above or in the date of Trepr's email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Trepr in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
