Discovernauts disclaims all warranties, conditions, or other terms of any kind that the services, its servers or any data (including email) sent from Discovernauts, are free of viruses or other harmful components. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, Discovernauts hereby disclaims all warranties and conditions with regard to this information, software, products, and the services, including all implied warranties and conditions or terms of any kind as to of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, quiet possession and noninfringement.

The third party suppliers providing accomodation, flights, tours, visa, insurance, travel or other services on or through the services are independent contractors and not agents or employees of the Discovernauts companies. The Discovernauts companies are not liable for the acts, errors, omissions, representations, warranties, breaches or negligence of any such suppliers or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting therefrom.

All rights reserved. Discovernauts is not responsible for content on websites operated by parties other than Discovernauts.
Your use of the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms is entirely at your own risk.
Although we enforce strict ‘price accuracy’ policies with all partners who provide us with travel data and endeavour to ensure that the content displayed on or via the Discovernauts Services and Platforms is up todate and accurate, we cannot guarantee the reliability or accuracy of such content. We provide the Discovernauts Services and Platforms on an ‘as is’ basis and expressly disclaim all warranties, conditions and guarantees of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited to, the implied warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability and accuracy, as well as any warranties implied by usage of trade, course of dealing or course of performance. To the extent permitted by law, we make no representations and do not warrant to you that the Discovernauts Services and Discovernauts Platforms (a) are accurate, complete or up to date; (b) will always be available; (c) will meet your expectations; or (d) are secure or are free from errors, faults, defects, viruses or malware.
Discovernauts is not a travel agent and is not responsible for providing any travel options displayed via the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms or for setting or controlling the prices we display. Any Third Party Travel Products which you find and/or book via the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms are provided by independent travel agents, airlines, hotels, travel operators or other third parties (“Travel Providers”).
Discovernauts facilitates your bookings with Travel Providers but is not responsible and has no liability to you in respect of such bookings. The identity of the relevant Travel Provider and the terms and conditions applicable to your booking with them (“Travel Provider Terms”) will be notified to you at the time of booking and you should ensure that you read and fully understand them before completing your booking.
The Travel Provider Terms will set out what rights you have against the Travel Provider and will explain their liability to you in the event of anything going wrong.
You agree to comply in full with all applicable Travel Provider Terms. You acknowledge that breaching Travel Provider Terms could result in the cancellation of tickets or reservations, revocation of frequent flier miles and other benefits, and additional charges.
Where you have used the Discovernauts Platforms to book two or more related travel products within a 24-hour period (for example a flight and, separately (within 24 hours of the first booking) a hotel) then this may be classified as a “Linked Travel Arrangement” depending on where you are located and the applicable consumer protection laws that apply. Where a Linked Travel Arrangement has been created, you will not have the same level of consumer protection that you would get where you book both a flight and hotel together through one single agent (where you may then get the benefits that apply to booking holiday packages). This means that you need to rely on each individual provider to perform their services, and do not have legal recourse to the organiser or the retailer of a package. In the event of the insolvency of one of the providers involved in the Linked Travel Arrangement, the protections available under the EU Package Travel Regulations will not apply.
These Terms set out the full extent of Discovernauts’s obligations and liabilities in respect of the Discovernauts Services and Platforms.
Discovernauts has no responsibility whatsoever for any arrangements you make with any third party as a result of your use of the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms (including, without limitation, any Travel Provider). In the event that you encounter any problems with any booking you make or attempt to make via Discovernauts, you acknowledge that you should resolve that issue with the relevant Travel Provider and that your sole remedy in such circumstances, including any refund, lies with the relevant Travel Provider and not with Discovernauts. Where the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms contain links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources and accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.
You may see advertising material submitted by third parties on the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms. Each individual advertiser is solely responsible for the content of its advertising material and Discovernauts accepts no responsibility for the content of advertising material, including, without limitation, any error, omission or inaccuracy therein.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we (together with our officers, directors, employees, representatives, affiliates, providers and third parties) do not accept any liability for (a) any inaccuracies or omissions in the content displayed on or via the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms; or (b) any act of god, accident, delay or any special, exemplary, punitive, indirect, incidental or consequential loss or damage of any kind (including, without limitation, lost profits or lost savings), whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, incurred by you arising out of or in connection with your access to, use of, or inability to access or use, the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms or any content contained provided therein.
Nothing in these Terms shall limit or exclude (a) our liability in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; (b) any other liability that cannot be excluded by law; or (c) your statutory rights.
Subject to these Terms, you will be responsible and liable to us for all actions, claims, proceedings, costs, damages, losses and expenses (including, without limitation, legal fees) incurred by us or the Discovernauts Group Companies, and each of our officers, directors, employees and agents, arising out of, or in any way connected with, your use of the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms or breach of these Terms.
You acknowledge that your unauthorised use of the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms may result in irreparable damage and injury to Discovernauts and/or its affiliates or licensors for which money damages would be inadequate. Consequently, in the event of such unauthorised use, we and our affiliates and/or licensors (as applicable) shall have the right, in addition to any other legal remedies available, to seek an immediate injunction against you prohibiting any further use of the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision (in whole or part) of these Terms shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions (in whole or part). The whole or part of any provision which is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable shall be deemed deleted from these Terms.
These Terms are personal to you. You shall not be entitled to assign these Terms in whole or in part to any third party without our prior written consent.
These Terms represent the entire agreement between us and you and supersede and replace all and any previous terms, conditions, agreements and arrangements in respect of your use of the Discovernauts Services and/or Discovernauts Platforms.
