BEHERE is a online booking platform as outlined on its website (www.gobehere.com ) in such capacity we organize and book Behere experience arrangements that are provided by independent third party providers. All services provided in connection with, before, during or after a experience, including but not limited to accommodation, workspace and fitness studios, are provided, owned and operated by independent third party providers, whose employees, facilities, products and services are not subject to Behere’s supervision or control and Behere is not their agent or responsible for their actions or inaction. In such capacity, Behere acts only as a platform for arranging any accommodation, workspace and fitness studios or other suppliers of services connected with Behere experience (“other providers”), and the other providers are solely responsible and liable for providing their respective products, provisions and services.
The responsibility of Behere in connection with your experience is strictly limited.
Behere makes no warranty, either express or implied, regarding the suitability, safety, insurance or other aspects of any other provider and any transportation, accommodation, services, products or facilities provided by other providers. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding to stay in an accommodation, participate in an experience or event. Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of accommodation at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by Behere. We are not liable for any claim for loss, damage, injury, death, misrepresentation, delay, inconvenience or disappointment, arising from any action or inaction by any other provider, including but not limited to any negligent or willful act or failure to act of any other provider or of any other third party.
We will not be liable to you in any claim for other than compensatory damages, including but not limited to any indirect, consequential, punitive, special or exemplary, or incidental damages, however caused and whether sought in contract, tort or under any other theory of liability, and regardless of whether we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Behere shall not be liable to any member for damages for emotional distress, mental suffering or psychological injury of any kind, under any circumstances.
Behere has partners and listings in a number of countries around the world. You agree to assume responsibility for your own safety, and we cannot guarantee your safety at any time. Local conditions, including infrastructure, road conditions, medical care, safety and security, may differ significantly from those found in your home country. At any given moment there are also likely to be “trouble spots” in the world in terms of war, terrorism, crime, Acts of God, civil commotions, labor trouble, and/or other potential sources of harm. The United States Department of State and other governmental and tourist organizations provide information on foreign countries, including details of local conditions in specific cities and countries according to such agency’s perception of risks to travelers. We strongly recommend you obtain and consider such information when making travel decisions. We assume no responsibility for gathering such information or providing it to you.
For your benefit, we strongly recommend you purchase travel protection to protect against loss or damage to baggage and personal effects, trip cancellation and interruption, emergency evacuation, accidental death or injury, illness and medical expenses sustained or incurred in connection with your experience.
BEHERE INC., its subsidiaries, affiliates, managers, members, successors, employees, agents, representatives, assigns (collectively “Behere”) and its designated team members shall not be held liable for (A) any damage to, or loss of, property or injury to, or death of, persons suffered during an experience, whether or not occasioned directly or indirectly by an act or omission of Behere or any other provider, including but not limited to any latent or undisclosed defect in any apartment or other service or property operated or provided by any other provider; and (B) any loss or damage due to delay, cancellation, or disruption in any manner caused by the other providers, or any laws, regulations, acts or failures to act, demands, orders, or interpositions of any government or any subdivision or agent thereof, or by acts of God, strikes, fire, flood, war, rebellion, terrorism, insurrection, sickness, quarantine, epidemics, theft, or any other cause(s) beyond their control.
