1. General information
Turaworld (also referred as “We” or “Us”) is a meeting point for advertisers, which can be business owners, touristic and travel experiences and service organisers, on the one hand, and visitors on the other, i.e. those persons interested in the services of the advertisers.
In these Terms, the concept of “Visitor” refers to registered users who are looking for touristic and travel experiences, while “Advertisers” refers to entities or individuals who publish advertisements for touristic and travel activities and experiences. For the purposes of these Terms, both Visitors and Advertisers will be referred to collectively as “Registered Users” (or “You”).
As a User, you must be 18 year-aged or older to use the Website, and if you register on behalf of a third party (for example, for Advertisers), you warrant you can represent that entity to register it on the Website and publish and process any content or that you have been authorized to do so by the representative or agent.
Modifications. Turaworld reserves the right to modify, without prior notice, the design, presentation and/or configuration of this Website, as well as some or all the services, and their corresponding updating, as well as these Terms. Any modification will be effective from the date of publication, and each use of the Website after such publication will be subject to the new Terms, so please read them carefully. We will notify you of any changes to these Terms, and your subsequent use of the Website constitutes your acceptance of them. We may contact you through the Website (for example, by asking you to accept the changes before you continue to use the Website) or by email.
2. Purpose and services scope
These Terms regulate User’s access to and use of the Website’s services (“Service(s)”).
The purposes of Turaworld are those of:
- To allow Advertisers to create and publish their business profile through which they will publish touristic events and advertise their business.
- To allow Visitors to access the profiles and information published by the Advertisers.
These Website’s purposes and characteristics may be modified, without prejudice to the provisions of applicable law, such as privacy. You accept that it is essential that our Website can be modified over time and this is an important basis on which we grant you access to the Service. Once we have made changes to the Service, your continued use of the Service will indicate that you have accepted any changes to the Service. You can always stop using the Service or deactivate your account through the Website settings. We will try, where possible and reasonable, to contact you about any significant changes to the Service.
In no manner whatsoever is Turaworld an agent or otherwise responsible for the provision of the Advertisers’ services, nor any payment or other responsibilities of Visitors if purchasing (off-site) any services advertised here.
3. Sign up and User Profile
- User Profile
In general, to enjoy Turaworld’s services, Advertisers and Visitors are required to sign into the Website.
In order to complete registration, each User must indicate a username, an e-mail address and create a password. The User will then receive an e-mail at the indicated e-mail address, in order to validate the registration process and verify the e-mail address.
If the e-mail address is not verified within 48 hours, it will be suspended until this action is carried out.
As a registered user, you are responsible for the custody of your credentials, which are personal and non-transferable, and consequently assume any damages that may arise from their improper use, as well as the transfer, disclosure or loss of them. For this purpose, access to restricted areas and/or the use of the contents of the Website made under the credentials will be deemed to have been made by you, and you will be responsible in all cases for such access and use. In the event of any circumstance implies a risk of access and/or use by unauthorised third parties, you must immediately notify Turaworld so that it can immediately proceed with the blocking and facilitate, if necessary, the replacement of the same.
- Creation of an Advertiser Profile
Once you have registered, as an Advertiser you can create the profile of your business. To do this, you must click on the “Add listing” button and enter all the fields that refer to general information about your business in question, such as the name of the business, category of the business, description and you will be able to provide the address, city, website, opening hours, languages spoken by the staff, price ranges, links, images and videos related to the business. As an advertiser, you can always access your own profile and modify it whenever and however you want.
