Last Revision: November 11, 2022


These Terms and Conditions (“Terms” or “Agreement”) contain important information about and govern your use of the services, products, Experiences (as defined below), applications, platforms, website, and memberships (together, the “Services”, “the Site”, or “the Service”)) of WiFi Tribe Co. (“WiFi Tribe,” “Company,” “Us”, “We,” "Our"). In this Agreement, “WiFi Tribe Co.” includes its affiliates, subsidiaries, assigns, successors, employees, contractors, agents, representatives, and directors.
By using any of our Services, you signify that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, regardless of whether you are a WiFi Tribe Member or not. As used herein, “You, “User”, "Users", or “Customer” means anyone who accesses and/or uses the Site or any of our Services.
You can review the most current version of the Terms at any time on this page. We reserve the right to update, change or replace any part of these Terms, without notice, by posting updates and/or changes to our website. It is your responsibility to check this page periodically for any such changes. Your continued use of the Services or accessing of the website following the posting of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes.
This is a legal agreement between You and WiFi Tribe Co. Please carefully read this agreement and WiFi Tribe’s
Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into and is a part of this Agreement. YOU MAY NOT USE OUR SERVICES IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.


Section 1 – Eligibility

All members must be the age of legal majority in their jurisdiction and have full authority to enter into this Agreement. You must be at least 18 years old or older to gain access to our website and become a Member. Some Services or Experiences may require members to be at least 21 years old to participate. The Company may provide exceptions to this age requirement on a case by case basis in its sole discretion. When applying for and maintaining membership with WiFi Tribe, you must provide and continue to provide accurate and complete information, including valid contact information. Upon request, you may be required to provide government-issued identification such as your passport. 


Applicants for membership must undergo an application process, which may include a video interview. Applicants may be required to provide personal information, including but not limited to legal name, address, contact information, criminal history, and travel preferences. An applicant's provision of false or misleading information may result in denial or revocation of membership and forfeiture of fees and deposits, at the Company's sole discretion. Following the application process, WiFi Tribe may admit or deny such applicants in its sole and absolute discretion. 


While WiFi Tribe is inclusive and welcoming to persons with disabilities, certain activities and international jurisdictions require members must be in good mental and physical health with no mental or physical condition that would create a risk to the other Members or staff, or negatively impact their experience, the Services, or the community environment that WiFi Tribe fosters. Members are required to disclose any condition, diet, or medical treatment that might impact their ability to fully participate in the Experience or negatively impact the experience of other participants to ensure adequate time for WiFi Tribe to evaluate the feasibility of that member safely participating in such Experience. WiFi Tribe will make reasonable efforts to accommodate persons with disabilities, but WiFi Tribe cannot guarantee that such persons will be able to participate in all activities, in particular any non-WiFi Tribe organized activities.


Certain locations may have limited access to medical care and such care may be delayed or wholly unavailable. All Members will be required to show proof of health insurance or travel insurance for each Experience or other Service the Member wishes to participate in. The required insurance shall provide for coverage of personal injury, accidents, medical expenses, airlifts, repatriation costs, and other medical expenses. WiFi Tribe is not obligated to cover any costs on your behalf. In the event WiFi Tribe covers costs on your behalf, you agree to immediately reimburse WiFi Tribe.


You have complete responsibility for your actions and decisions while a WiFi Tribe member, including for any charges incurred or damage (to us or anyone else) caused by you. WiFi Tribe expressly disclaims any representations and warranties that are not expressly contained in this Agreement. 


All members must abide by the laws, regulations, rules and ordinances of the applicable jurisdiction. Engaging in such illegal activities may result in suspension or revocation of membership without refund or other remedies as WiFi Tribe deems appropriate. This shall apply regardless of whether the illegal activity took place on WiFi Tribe premises or off premise. WiFi Tribe shall not be responsible for any ramifications of your illegal activity. It is your sole responsibility to be aware of the laws of the applicable jurisdiction. WiFi Tribe shall administer this requirement in its sole and absolute discretion and shall have authority to determine the credibility of any claim or allegation that a member engaged in such prohibited or illegal activity.


Revocation. All Members and other persons who participate or attend an Experience, utilize any Service or otherwise are involved in our WiFi Tribe community are bound by our Community Guidelines. WiFi Tribe reserves the right to decline to provide the Services, decline to admit a member, remove any user or guest from any Experience and/or revoke a user’s access or membership. This includes the right to remove any one from the Service, Membership or Experience for any reason, including but not limited to when such removal is warranted by the violations of our Community Guidelines to protect (i) the intentional culture and experience we are fostering in our community and/or (ii) the comfort, convenience, safety or the perceived safety of the other members. This right may be exercised by us in our absolute and sole discretion. For avoidance of doubt, the right to expel someone is not limited to the person’s actions or violations of our Community Guidelines while participating in an Experience but may be based on such person’s actions or violations that occurred while not participating in a WiFi Tribe related Experience. In the event of removal or expulsion, You shall not be entitled to any refund, prorated or otherwise.


Section 2 – Services
