AGREEMENT BETWEEN USER AND JUSTICE TRAVEL, INC.
The Justice Travel, Inc. (Justice Travel) Website is composed of various web pages operated by Justice Travel. “Justice Travel Website” shall be defined herein to include justice.travel and all other web pages operated or hosted exclusively by Justice Travel (“Services”).
The Justice Travel Website is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions and notices contained herein. Your use of the Justice Travel Website constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions and notices.
LINKS TO THIRD PARTY SITES
The Justice Travel Website may contain links to other websites (“Linked Sites”). The Linked Sites are not under the control of Justice Travel, and Justice Travel is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site, including without limitation any link contained in a Linked Site, or any changes or updates to a Linked Site. Justice Travel is not responsible for webcasting or any other form of transmission received from any Linked Site. Justice Travel is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Justice Travel of the site or any association with its operators.

You may create hyperlinks to the Justice Travel Website, provided such links do not, directly or indirectly, (a) portray Justice Travel or any of its products and services in a false, misleading, derogatory or otherwise defamatory manner; or (b) contain any adult or illegal material, or any material that is offensive, harassing or otherwise objectionable.
PASSWORDS AND ACCOUNT SECURITY
You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords associated with any account you use to access the Services. Accordingly, you agree that you will be solely responsible to Justice Travel for all activities that occur under your account.

TERMS OF SALE
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully as they form the basis of your contract with Justice Travel. This agreement is made at the time of booking and becomes legally binding upon payment of your deposit. By booking a program with Justice Travel, you signify you have read and accepted these Terms and Conditions.
All travel arrangements are sold subject to the following conditions.
(a) Booking and Payment
You must be 18 years of age or over and possess the legal capacity and authority to make the booking and accept these booking conditions on behalf of everyone in your party.
A non-refundable deposit, payable by credit card or online payment, is due at the time of enrollment and is applied toward the total program fee. The deposit assures Justice Travel of your commitment to participate in the program and allows Justice Travel to make the necessary arrangements, and is therefore not refundable under any circumstance. For shorter tours, full payment may be required at the time of enrollment.
In the case of a deposit, the balance of the program fee and the submission of the required paperwork, including but not limited to the signed liability waiver provided to you by Justice Travel, is due 60 days in advance of the selected program start date. The balance of the program fee is payable by check, credit card, online payment, or wire transfer. If you enroll between 31 and 70 days prior to the scheduled start date, you have 10 days from the date you have enrolled to pay the balance of the program fee, and to complete the required paperwork. When enrolling within 30 days of the selected program start date, the balance of the program fee must be paid in full upon enrollment, and the required paperwork must be promptly completed. All funds must be received by Justice Travel by these deadlines, and no exceptions shall be granted. Deadlines may be adjusted by Justice Travel in case of shorter tours.
(b) Transfers and Cancellations
If you cancel your booking, or transfer to a different Justice Travel trip:
Cancellation or transfer
100 or more days before start date
Transfer: No fee, deposit and any program fees paid are applied to new program
Cancellation: Loss of deposit, full refund on any other program fees paid
40-99 days before start date
Transfer: $100 fee, all other amounts paid are applied to new program
Cancellation: Loss of deposit, 75% refund on any other program fees paid
Less than 40 days before start date
Transfer: $500 fee, all other amounts paid applied to new program
Cancellation: No refund on deposit or any other amounts paid
If we cancel your booking:
Justice Travel reserves the right to cancel programs either prior to departure or while in progress and to take action as needed on an individual or group basis when, in Justice Travel’s sole opinion, the health, safety or well-being of participants requires such action. Additionally, due to low enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances, Justice Travel must occasionally cancel or revise the dates of a program. When that occurs we will notify you as far in advance as possible and will assist you in transferring into another program or refunding your full program payment.
While we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on the Justice Travel Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any products or services which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the products or services, you will receive a full refund. Delivery costs (if applicable) will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the ‘Total Cost’.
You must obtain adequate and valid travel insurance. This is compulsory for all customers and is a condition of your booking. We strongly recommend you take out insurance as soon as your booking is confirmed. Travel insurance should be in place for the entire duration of your travel, covering, at a minimum, cancellation of booking, providing medical cover for illness and injury, repatriation while overseas and loss of baggage. Details of your policy must be provided to us as soon as possible. We will not check the sustainability of your policy; it remains at all times your responsibility to ensure the insurance cover you purchase is adequate for your needs. You are required to carry proof of insurance with you and produce it if reasonably requested. The ‘Duty of Disclosure’ is the responsibility of the policy holder.
SAFETY AND RISKS
Justice Travel’s responsibility is limited. Justice Travel organizes, promotes, and sells programs consisting of certain travel services, including land, air, and water transportation, excursions, and hotel or hotel-like accommodations that Justice Travel purchases or reserves from various tour operators or other suppliers. Justice Travel neither owns nor operates any of these tour operators or other suppliers. Therefore, Justice Travel is not responsible for any negligent or willful act or failure to act of any tour operator or other supplier. You agree that you will look to the tour operator or other supplier, and not to Justice Travel or its agents, for any accident, injury, property damage, or personal loss you may suffer. Without limitation, Justice Travel is not responsible for any injury, loss, or damage to person or property, death, delay, or inconvenience in connection with the provision of, or failure to provide, any goods or services occasioned by or resulting from — but not limited to — acts of God or force majeure, acts of war or civil unrest, insurrection or revolt, strikes or other labor activities, criminal or terrorist activities of any kind, mechanical or other failure of airplanes or other means of transportation, or the failure of any transportation mechanism to arrive or depart on time, or for any other cause beyond the direct control of Justice Travel.
Certain risks — from natural disasters to accidents, outbreaks of illness, insect-borne and other infectious diseases, terrorism and other unforeseen events — are inherent in travel. While such occurrences are beyond our control, we make substantial efforts to be prepared for such possibilities. By enrolling in a program, you agree to assume responsibility for your own health, safety and welfare and acknowledge that Justice Travel cannot guarantee your safety at any time.
SPECIAL NEEDS AND REQUESTS
Justice Travel is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to enable individuals with disabilities to participate in our programs. If you have any impairments or medical needs requiring accommodation, please communicate your needs to Justice Travel at the time of enrollment. We will work with you to accommodate your needs and will provide you with specific information on such matters as the suitability and functionality of requested modifications, the physical demands of the program and the availability of dietary options.
If you have any feedback, issues or complaints during your program, you must inform the Justice Travel country representative immediately who will be able to address the situation. If you are not happy with the actions taken in response, please follow this up with us via email within 30 days of your program end date. We will acknowledge your email within 7 days and aim to provide a full response within 28 days. Failure on your part to notify us and the country representative will deprive us of the opportunity to investigate and to take appropriate action to put things right whilst you are on your program and may affect your legal rights.
As noted, standards of accommodation, cleanliness, hygiene, health and safety and other services may be quite different from what you are accustomed to at home, and you should be prepared for this. We will do our best to prepare you for the likely standards you will encounter before you depart, but we are not liable for any refunds as a result of complaints about standards which we have adequately described.
VISAS, HEALTH, PASSPORT AND TRAVEL DOCUMENTS
While we are able to provide basic advice to customers regarding passports and visa requirements, you should check with the appropriate Embassy, Consulate or Foreign Office for the exact requirements for your chosen program and date of travel. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct passport and visas for your travel arrangements. We are unable to offer advice on any health or medical matters. It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain proper and detailed medical advice prior to travel.
PHOTOGRAPHY & PRIVACY
By participating in a Justice Travel program, you implicitly grant permission for Justice Travel to take and use photographs and videos of tour activities in which you appear, for the purpose of promotional materials. If you do not wish to appear in such photos or videos, you must make an explicit request to not be photographed or recorded before the beginning of the tour or any specific tour activity. Justice Travel is not responsible for photos, videos, or other accounts taken or disseminated by other tour participants or any third parties invited to participate in tour activities.
At times, because of political sensitivities, Justice Travel will ask that you not take photographs or videos of certain individuals from our local partner organizations, or that you not disseminate accounts of those meetings, including via social media. We ask that you respect their privacy and understand that when these requests are made, they are always to be followed and taken seriously.
By submitting photos, videos, comments, or other material to Justice Travel via the Justice Travel Website or any Justice Travel social media platform, you grant Justice Travel a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to use that content in connection with the work of Justice Travel.
PARTICIPATION & BEHAVIOR
The granting or denial of admission to a program is within the sole discretion of Justice Travel. Justice Travel may revoke admission or limit or terminate participation at any time if, in the opinion of Justice Travel, a participant’s condition, behavior or actions are problematic, inappropriate or disruptive. Justice Travel reserves the right to take action as needed on an individual or group basis when, in Justice Travel’s sole opinion, the health, safety or well-being of participants or local partners requires such action.
Laws and customs of the country or countries you visit can be very different to those in your home country. Be aware of your actions to ensure that they do not offend, especially if you intend to visit religious areas. There may be serious penalties for doing something that might not be considered illegal where you are from. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with, and respect, local laws and customs. If you fail to do so, we will have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer, nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements.
USE OF COMMUNICATION SERVICES
The Justice Travel Website may contain services, such as blog posting or other facilities (collectively, “Communication Services”) designed to enable you to communicate with an individual, the public at large or with a group. You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send and receive messages and material that are proper and related to the particular Communication Service. To use the Communication Services you represent and warrant that you are at least of 18 years of age.
By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using a Communication Service, you will not:
Justice Travel has no obligation to monitor the Communication Services. Justice Travel cannot verify the accuracy of statements that users make or place on or through the Communication Services, and does not guarantee that any materials uploaded by users have been submitted with the permission of the copyright or proprietary owner or are otherwise in compliance with these Terms.
Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself in any Communication Service. Justice Travel does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Service and, therefore, Justice Travel specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service.

Except as prohibited by law, you will hold Justice Travel and its officers, directors, employees and agents harmless for any indirect, punitive, special, incidental or consequential damage, however it arises (including attorneys’ fees and all related costs and expenses of litigation and arbitration, or at trial or on appeal, if any, whether or not litigation or arbitration is instituted), whether in an action of contract, negligence or other tortious action, or arising out of or in connection with these Terms, including without limitation any claim for personal injury or property damage, arising from (i) your use of and access to the Services; (ii) your violation of any of these Terms; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that your content caused damage to a third party.

GENERAL LEGAL TERMS
The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Justice Travel and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which Justice Travel may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Justice Travel in relation to the Services.
You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services, which Justice Travel provides, may change from time to time with or without prior notice to you.
As part of Justice Travel’s continuing innovation, you acknowledge and agree that Justice Travel may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services to you or to users generally at Justice Travel’s sole discretion, without prior notice to you. You may stop using the Services at any time.
Unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with Justice Travel, you agree that you will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade or resell the Services for any purpose. You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Justice Travel has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under the Terms and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which Justice Travel may suffer) of any such breach.
You acknowledge and agree that while Justice Travel may not currently have set a fixed limit on the number of transmissions you may send, receive or store/manage through the Services, such fixed limits may be set by Justice Travel at any time, at Justice Travel’s discretion.
You agree that if Justice Travel does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Justice Travel has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Justice Travel’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Justice Travel.
If any disagreement or dispute arises regarding these Terms or any rights or obligations conveyed hereunder, the disagreement shall be resolved, whenever possible, by meeting and conferring. If such efforts are unsuccessful, either you or Justice Travel (collectively “Parties” or individually “Party”) shall seek a resolution via binding arbitration, to be conducted in the State of New York and in accordance with the then-prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any award conferred shall be enforceable in any court of suitable jurisdiction in the State of New York. The arbitration requirement does not apply to requests for injunctive relief.
The Terms, and your relationship with Justice Travel under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, USA, without regard to conflict of laws provisions. You and Justice Travel agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of New York to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Justice Travel shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms, which will remain in full force and effect.
