Acceptance of Terms
The following Terms of Service Agreement (the “TOS”) is a legally binding agreement that shall govern the relationship with our members and others which may interact or interface with Driftour, located in, Tallahassee, Florida, in association with the use of the Driftour.com, and its Services which shall be defined below.
Description of Services
Driftour is a tech-based platform for marketing local businesses to host their workshops/events called “Immersions”. Immersions allow members to explore more in depth the businesses, sights, and stories of Tallahassee.
Driftour also offers Self-Guided Tours (SGT) that identify, plan and design routes around local themes in a mobile friendly platform. We integrate GPS assistance in our SGT through the use of Google Maps. Our SGT also includes participating restaurants.
Any and all Members to use our services shall be deemed “Members” of the herein contained Services provided for the purpose of this TOS.
Driftour serves as a third party facilitator between Hosts and Members and does not directly conduct tours itself.
The Member acknowledges and agrees to the services provided through our tech-based platform.
Booking and Reservations
Members may book and schedule Immersions through the online website services. SGTs may also be scheduled on the website.
Driftour is a subscription service only. No individual tickets will be sold for Immersions. A monthly membership fee will be charged. Premium memberships will have the opportunity to be rewarded with access to increased Immersion content and other benefits as we see fit.
To help our Members have good Immersions, Hosts and Members agree to the following terms of conduct, in addition to those contained in the TOS (http://www.Driftour.com)
- Members and Hosts will not bring additional guests to an Immersion unless such a Member booked an Immersion through (or was added as an additional Member for a spot booked through) the Services.
- Hosts and Members will always provide accurate information to one another, as well as any other users of the Services.
- Hosts will fully educate and inform Members about anything they may need to know to safely participate in their Immersion (including fitness requirements, dress codes, equipment they may need, water bottles, physical challenges, etc.).
- Members will fully inform Hosts of any allergies, medical or physical conditions, or other circumstances that may impact their ability to safely participate in an Immersion.
