TERMS & CONDITIONS
These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) are legally binding, whether or not signed by the individual(s), or individual’s legal guardian or responsible adult, (the “Guest” or “You”) booking or participating in a retreat (a “Retreat”) with Like Om Retreats (the “Booking Agent”). By booking or participating in a Retreat organized or planned by the Booking Agent, the Guest agrees to these Terms.
For good and valuable consideration, it is mutually agreed between the Booking Agent and Guest, as follows:
1 – RETREAT BOOKING
The Guest’s booking is confirmed, and a legally binding contract exists, when the Booking Agent receives the Guest’s Deposit, defined infra. Upon receipt of the Deposit, the Booking Agent will issue an email confirmation to the Guest. Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to the Booking Agent immediately. The Booking Agent’s failure to send an email confirmation in no way makes the Deposit refundable and in no way alters these Terms.
When booking Your trip, please ensure that each Guest’s name appears in the booking material exactly as it appears on the Guest’s passport. The Booking agent is not responsible for a Guest’s travel delays or cancellations for any reason, including, but not limited to, delays or cancellations resulting from the Guest’s failure to provide the Booking Agent with its full name as it appears on the Guest’s passport.
2 – RETREAT PACKAGE EXCLUSIONS
Please carefully check the ‘What’s Included’ tab for each Retreat for a complete list of what is included in the price of the Retreat. Only items on that list will be included in the price of the Retreat. Any additional costs or expenses will be incurred solely by the Guest.
3 – TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel insurance is recommended, but not required. The Booking Agent is not responsible for any costs or expenses related to changes to the Guest’s travel schedule. The Booking Agent is further not responsible for any items lost or stolen during the Retreat or during any travel related to the Retreat. It is further expressly agreed that the Booking Agent is not responsible or liable for any injuries sustained by the Guest during the Retreat or during any travel related to the Retreat.
4 – PRICES & SURCHARGES
The price of a Guest’s Retreat is set when the Guest pays the Deposit. Retreat prices may vary at any time in accordance with demand, teacher fees and offerings, market conditions and/or availability. The Booking Agent may offer discounted pricing from time-to-time on Retreat packages. Discounted pricing applies only to new bookings and may not be combined. If a booking has already been made, the Guest is not entitled to discount pricing.
5 – DEPOSIT & FINAL PAYMENT
A deposit is required to confirm the Guest’s Retreat booking and price (the “Deposit”). The Deposit is nonrefundable under any circumstances. Final payment of the Guest’s balance is due six (6) weeks before the Retreat start date. If the Guest fails to pay the balance by the applicable due date, the Booking Agent has the right, but not the obligation, to treat the Guest’s booking as a cancellation under the terms detailed in Section 6 of these Terms. If a booking is made less than six (6) weeks before the Retreat start date, the full amount must be paid at the time of booking.
If, for any Retreat booked, payment terms differ from those outlined in this section, the applicable terms will be communicated on the Retreat page, which is located at HERE. The Booking Agent is not responsible for any charges levied by third parties or financial institutions and payable by You as a result of credit card or other payment transactions and will not refund or return any fees charged by third parties or financial institutions in connection with payments made by You to the Booking Agent.
6 – CANCELLATION BY RETREAT GUEST
You may cancel your booking by notifying the Booking Agent by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The following cancellation penalties will apply:
- Deposit is nonrefundable.
- If cancelled twelve (12) weeks or less prior to the Retreat start date, 100% of the Retreat price is forfeited.
- For cancellations made twelve (12) weeks or more prior to the Retreat start date, 50% of payments made, less the nonrefundable Deposit, will be refunded.
- If You chose to join the Retreat after the start date or leave the Retreat prior to the end date, no refund will be made.
7 – ACCEPTANCE OF RISK
You acknowledge that the activities and inclusions offered on the Retreat by the Booking Agent may involve a degree of risk to your health and safety. To participate in a Retreat, the Booking Agent requires that You confirm your assumption of this responsibility by completing the participation waiver (the “Waiver”) prior to departing on your Retreat that acknowledges your acceptance of these risks. If the Guest refuses or fails to deliver a signed copy of the Waiver to the Booking Agent prior to departing on your Retreat, the Guest’s booking will be treated as a cancellation under the terms detailed in Section 6 of these Terms.
8 – COMPLAINTS
You agree to bring any complaints to the Booking Agent as soon as possible in order to provide the Booking Agent the opportunity to properly address such complaints. All such complaints should be directed to your Retreat leader directly. If the complaint, for any reason, involves the Retreat leader or the Guest does not feel comfortable bringing the complaint to the Retreat leader, the complaint can be submitted to the Booking Agent via email at email@example.com. The Guest’s failure to properly bring a complaint to the attention of the Booking Agent is deemed a waiver of the complaint. The Booking Agent cannot resolve or attempt to resolve complaints unless proper notice is provided.
9 – PHOTO AND MARKETING
You agree that, while participating in any Retreat, images, photos or videos may be taken by other participants, the Booking Agent or its representatives that may contain or feature You. You consent to any such pictures being taken and grant a perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide, irrevocable license to the Booking Agent, its contractors, sub-contractors and assigns, to reproduce for any purpose whatsoever (including marketing, promotions and the creation of promotional materials by or with sub-licensees), in any medium whatsoever, whether currently known or hereinafter devised, without any further obligation or compensation payable to you.
Any personal information that is collected by the Booking Agent about You may be used for any purpose associated with the operation of a Retreat or to send You marketing material in relation to the Booking Agent’s Retreats and special offers. The information may be disclosed to our agents, service providers or other suppliers to enable us to operate the Retreat.
11 – GOVERNING LAW AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION
These Terms shall be construed in accordance with, and governed by, the laws of the State of New Jersey without regard to choice of law principles, and both the Booking Agent and the Guest consent and submit to the sole and exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of the Superior Court of New Jersey, County of Hudson for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of, or based upon, the Retreat or these Terms.
12 – CONFLICTS WITH ANY LAW
In case any provision of these Terms should be held contrary to, or invalid under, the law of any country, state, or other jurisdiction, such illegality or invalidity, shall not affect in any way, other provisions hereof, all of which shall continue, nevertheless, in full force and effect in any country, state, or jurisdiction in which such provision is legal and valid.
13 – UPDATES ON TERMS & CONDITIONS
Like Om Retreats reserves the right to update and/or alter these Terms & Conditions at any time.
