IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION FOR U.S. CUSTOMERS: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND THATCH THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY SECTION 18 “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” BELOW FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION.
By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, do not use the Services. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that entity.
We may update the Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. If we do, we’ll let you know by posting the updated Terms on the Site, to the App and/or may also send other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we update them or you use the Services. If you continue to use the Services after we have posted updated Terms it means that you accept and agree to the changes. If you don’t agree to be bound by the changes, you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
****Through our Services we offer an online platform which enables users to share and digest travel destination content and information (“Travel Content”). If you use our Services to create and share Travel Content we refer to you as a “Content Creator” for the purposes of these Terms. On the other hand, a “Visitor” in the context of these Terms means a user of our Services that views, consumes and in some cases purchases access to Travel Content made available by Content Creators. We act as an intermediary between Visitors and Content Creators and our responsibilities under these Terms are limited to facilitating the availability of the Services.
From time to time, Visitors may also have the opportunity to purchase access to certain premium Travel Content for a fee as designated by Thatch or the Content Creator, which we refer to as “Paid Content” for the purposes of these Terms. Content Creators that would like to sell access to their Paid Content, or the opportunity to receive “tips” from Visitors must apply to Thatch to become a “Seller”. You can initiate the application process by following the instructions posted on our Services. We reserve the right to approve or reject any Seller application, for any reason. If you are approved and you agree to the terms and conditions of the “Seller Addendum” made available to you in connection with the application process, you will be deemed a Seller. The Seller Addendum contains terms regarding how and what Sellers get paid for access to their Paid Content and other terms specific to a Seller’s provision of such content in connection with the Services.
You may use the Services only if you are 18 years or older and capable of forming a binding contract with Thatch, and not otherwise barred from using the Services under applicable law. For certain features of the Services, including without limitation Content Creator or Seller features, you may need an account. You are responsible for any activity that occurs in your account, so it’s important that you keep your account secure and all account information up to date. Please notify us right away at [email protected] if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account.
