Terms And Conditions
These Terms of Service for Clients ("Terms") govern your use of the FishFishMe website ("Site") and other services offered by FishFishMe, as well as services offered through third parties integrating FishFishMe functionality (collectively, "Services"). FishFishMe, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("we" or "us"), provides the Site and Services. "You" refers to you as a user of the Site or Services. These Terms apply to all clients (defined below) using the Site and Services. If you are a Boat Operator (defined below), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
BY USING THE SITE OR SERVICES, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY.
The Site and Services offer you a marketplace platform where users who seek boat operators for chartered private fishing trips ("clients") can select someone with the specific skill-set and interest the client is looking for ("Boat Operators") in their location or any other location and Boat Operators can offer those services to clients. You can locate Boat Operators, schedule fishing trips, communicate with Boat Operators, and pay Boat Operators using the Site and Service.
The Site and Services may only be used to obtain or offer chartered private fishing trips; no other services may be obtained or offered. We do not employ any Boat Operators and we are not hiring a Boat Operator for you. We may, but are not obligated to, conduct reviews, verifications, and background checks of you or Boat Operators. Nonetheless, we do not have control over the quality, timing, or legality of the services actually delivered by Boat Operators, nor of the integrity, responsibility or actions of clients or Boat Operators and we make no warranties or guarantees about them. We do not procure or provide any insurance for Boat Operators, and it is solely each Boat Operator’s responsibility to obtain all licenses, permits, and insurance required to comply with all applicable laws and regulations and to comply with all applicable tax, anti-fraud, and anti-money laundering, and other applicable laws, regulations, and requirements of the United States and all other relevant jurisdictions.
You must be at least 13 years old to use the Site or the Services. If you are under the age of majority in your state or country of residence, your parent or legal guardian must agree to these Terms on your behalf and you may only access and use the Site and Services with permission from your parent or legal guardian.
3. Additional Terms
Some of our Services have additional terms and conditions ("Additional Terms"). Where Additional Terms apply to a Service, we will make them available for you to read through prior to your use of that Service. By using that Service, you agree to the Additional Terms.
4. Booking Process
The booking of a fishing trip ("Booking") is considered final only after all of the following are completed: You have (1) specified the date of the trip and the number of passengers, (2) chosen the Boat Operator and Booking package, (3) made a Booking request, and (4) made a deposit payment in an amount specified by the Boat Operator.
When you make a Booking, we put the transaction on hold until the Boat Operator confirms the fishing trip. Boat Operators will receive email alerts for Booking requests. The Boat Operator is required to reply to the fishing trip requests within 24 hours. The Boat Operator either confirms the Booking or proposes other dates if the requested Booking date is not available.
Upon the completion of a Booking as set forth above, (a) you must arrive at the precise time and location specified in the confirmation email or as previously agreed with the Boat Operator, and any delay will not be offset by the Boat Operator and (b) the Boat Operator must arrive at the precise time and location specified in the confirmation email or as pre-agreed with the client, and any delay will be offset by the Boat Operator. The Boat Operator is required to deliver all of the services outlined in the relevant package.
Payment for the Booking will be processed as follows: (a) you make a Booking and pay the deposit payment online and (2) you receive a Booking confirmation with complete trip details via email. Deposit payments will be processed by a third-party provider, and you hereby acknowledge and agree to any terms and conditions imposed by the third-party payment processor. Credit card payments are processed by our service provider, Stripe. For information about Stripe, please visit www.stripe.com.
The cancelation policy is determined by each Boat Operator and may vary from one Boat Operator to the other. Most Boat Operators will have a full refund policy for cancellation requests made 4 days prior to the booked trip date. Boat Operators must inform you of their cancellation policy prior to Booking. If you want to cancel or modify the Booking, you should send a cancellation request email to email@example.com referring to the Booking or Booking code.
The Boat Operator has the ultimate responsibility for the safety of the crew and the passengers onboard the boat. In the event that the trip can no longer be conducted safely due to adverse weather conditions, mechanical or other repair issues, or safety concerns (or for any other reason), the Boat Operator has the right to cancel any part or the entire trip (before or after departure). We will contact you in case of any cancellation or rescheduling made by the Boat Operator.
If the fishing trip is canceled due to adverse weather conditions, mechanical or other repair issues, or safety concerns, you may choose to either reschedule the trip or get a full refund. We are not responsible for any other expenses incurred by you incidental to making the fishing trip, including accommodation, transportation, insurance, and similar expenses.
