As a Provider, you may create Profiles that showcase your experience, activities you can lead, and the type of Experiences you can help Guests plan. Profiles will be made publicly available via the Services, and other Members may contact you based upon the information provided in your Profile. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for your Profiles and your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who are present during the Experience at your request or invitation, excluding the Guest (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Experience, if applicable). You agree to comply with the Glyd Provider guidelines available at “www.GlydApp.com/pages/guideline”. You understand and agree that Glyd does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as a Provider. If a Guest requests your expertise for a Experience and participates in your Experience, any agreement you enter into with such Guest is between you and the Guest and Glyd is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Glyd serves as your limited authorized agent:
- for the purpose of accepting payments from Guests on your behalf, and is responsible for transmitting such payments to you, subject to these Terms of Service
You are responsible for all other bookings, including without limitation on-the-ground arrangements, tours or experiences you host, restaurants and similar bookings.
You represent and warrant that your Profile and your planning of and/or guidance on any Experience:
- will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties (such as any agreements with or rules of employers or local tourism agencies)
- will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any such Experience, including, but not limited to, tourism, tour guide licensing laws, and other laws governing events and tours of public spaces and other venues and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties.
Please note that Glyd assumes no responsibility for any Provider’s or Guest’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. Glyd reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Profile for any reason, including Profiles that Glyd, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Services.
Glyd recommends that Providers and Guests obtain appropriate insurance for their Experiences. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Experience carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Guests (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Experience, if applicable) while participating in your Experience.
Glyd does not endorse any Experiences. In addition, although these Terms require users to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any user’s purported identity. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Services. We will not be responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other users. By using the Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other users or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular user or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Glyd with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other users via the Services regarding any bookings or Trips made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Provider against Glyd regarding (i) the remittance of payments received from a Guest by Glyd on behalf of a Provider or (ii) the failure of Glyd to book a Glyd Booking for which the Guest provided accurate booking information, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.
CONDITIONS OF USE
BOOKINGS AND FINANCIAL TERMS FOR PROVIDERS:
GUIDES (GLYDrs, Providers who lead activities). Except in the case of a Pre-Approved Event (as defined below), if you are a Host and a booking is requested for your Experience via the Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the booking within the specified timeframe (which is generally within 24-48 hours of when the booking is requested, as determined by Glyd in its sole discretion) or the booking request will be automatically cancelled. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a booking of an Experience within the specified timeframe, any amounts collected by Glyd for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Guest’s credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. You may be able to create a Listing that is pre-scheduled for a specific time and date, where the Guest’s booking may be automatically confirmed (a “Pre-Approved Event”). When a booking is requested via the Services, we may share with your basic profile of the Guest who has requested the booking and a link to the Guest’s Glyd Account profile page. The fee displayed in each Listing is comprised of the Experience Fees (defined below). Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Experience Fees. The Experience Fees, Guest Fees (defined below) and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Total Fees”. The amounts due and payable by a Guest solely relating to a Host’s Experience are the “Experience Fees”. Please note that it is the Host and not Glyd which determines the Experience Fees. Glyd charges a service fee to Providers of 20% of applicable Experience Fees the “Host Fees”. The Guest Fees are added to the Experience Fees to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes). Glyd will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking confirmation (i.e. when the Host confirms the booking within the specified timeframe) and will initiate payout of the Experience Fees (less Host Fees) to the Host within 24 hours of when the Guest arrives at the applicable Experience (except to the extent that a refund is due to the Guest). However, please note that we will not be responsible for delays in remitting Experience Fees, which can vary based on the bank, currency, location, etc.
Since Glyd reserves the right to charge back from Providers the Reservation Amount they received for organizing certain experience if upon the receipt of a complaint by a Guest with respect to such Experience, it believes, at its sole discretion, that such Experience was not compatible with Glyd’s standards of service or in case of any misconduct of the Provider. If the Experience did not satisfy the expectations of the Guest, the Guest will have 48 hours after the Experience to submit a claim for a potential refund. If the claim is submitted after the 48-hour period, then it will be invalid for any restitution from Glyd since the payment for the experience has already been processed. The Guest will need to contact the Provider of the Experience directly in order to receive a refund after the 48-hour period.
BOOKINGS FOR GUESTS:
Guests that wish to request the assistance of a Provider via the Services may directly contact Providers with a request. The Provider should propose an Experience itinerary after which the Guest and the Provider should continue to communicate to finalize the itinerary. Once the itinerary is finalized, the Provider will either:
- confirm the Guest’s reservation request for a guided experience
The Provider is responsible for all bookings (“Provider Bookings”). As part of the Booking, Guests may be required to enter into an agreement (including releases) with the Provider, and the Guest agrees to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with the Itinerary imposed by the Provider. Guest acknowledges and agrees that Glyd is not a party to any agreement between the Guest and Provider, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations and obligations related to Glyd Bookings hereunder, Glyd disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. Guest acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding the fact that Glyd is not a party to any agreements between Guest and the Provider, Glyd acts as the Provider’s payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from Guest on behalf of the Provider. Upon Guest’s payment of amounts to Glyd which are due to the Provider, Guest’s payment obligation to the Provider for such amounts is extinguished, and Glyd is responsible for remitting such amounts, less Glyd’s fees and commissions, to the Provider. In the event that Glyd does not remit any such amounts to a Provider, such Provider will have recourse only against Glyd.
Please note that the actual amount charged by third parties for various items in the Itinerary may differ from the price quoted in the Booking, as prices may fluctuate before each booking is confirmed. If the actual prices are higher than the Total Fees, the Provider will contact you to request your permission prior to booking.
CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS:
GUIDES (Providers who lead activities). These terms and conditions govern the Glyd Guest Refund Policy (the “Guest Refund Policy”) available to Guests who book and pay for an Experience listed by a Host through the Glyd platform (the “APP”) and suffer a Guest Issue and the obligations of the Host associated with the Guest Refund Policy.
A “Guest Issue” means any one of the following:
- The Host of the Experience (i) cancels a reservation within 24 hours before the scheduled start of the reservation, (ii) fails to arrive for the Experience within 20 minutes of the scheduled start time, or (iii) fails to provide the Guest with the reasonable ability to access the Experience (e.g., by allowing the Guest access to the space in which the Experience will happen or begin if applicable).
- The description of the Experience in the listing on the Site is materially inaccurate with respect to (i) the duration of the Experience, (ii) the content of the Experience (including but not limited to the stated activities or sites, as applicable), or (iii) the physical location of the Experience. c) During the Guest’s Experience, conditions do not meet safety or health hazards that would be reasonably expected, given the nature of the particular Experience, in Glyd’s judgment.
THE GUEST REFUND POLICY.
If you are a Guest and suffer a Guest Issue, we agree, at our discretion, to either (i) reimburse you up to the amount paid by you through the Site, as determined by Glyd in our discretion, depending on the nature of the Guest Issue suffered or (ii) use our reasonable efforts to find and book you another Experience which in our determination is reasonably comparable to the Experience described in your original reservation in terms of content and quality. For clarity, in the event the alternative Experience is of a higher price than the former, you may be responsible for any difference in price. In the event the alternative Experience is of a lower price, you may be entitled to a partial refund for the difference. All determinations of Glyd with respect to the Guest Refund Policy, including without limitation the size of any refund, shall be final and binding on the Guests and Hosts.
Hosts will not be able to cancel the event within 36 hours prior to the start time of the experience. This is to ensure that every guest is not taken by surprise and may plan ahead of time. Hosts who must cancel within that time frame must contact Glyd or contact the guest regarding a reschedule (which must be done at least 24 hours before the start time of the experience).
Please note that in order to submit a request for a discount code to be applied retroactively, the request must be made within 24 hours of the experience request being submitted.
CONDITIONS TO CLAIM AN EXPERIENCE ISSUE.
Only a Guest may submit a claim for a Guest Issue. If you are a Guest, in order to submit a valid claim for a Guest Issue and receive the benefits with respect to your reservation, you are required to meet each of the following conditions:
- You must report the Guest Issue to Glyd in writing (at [email protected]) or via telephone and provide us with information (including evidence) about the Experience and the circumstances of the Guest Issue within 24 hours after the start of your reservation, and must respond to any requests by us for additional information or cooperation on the Guest Issue;
- You must not have directly or indirectly caused the Guest Issue (through your action, omission or negligence); and
- You must have used reasonable efforts to try to remedy the circumstances of the Guest Issue with the Host prior to making a claim for a Guest Issue (and you must provide evidence of having done so).
MINIMUM QUALITY STANDARDS, HOST RESPONSIBILITIES AND REIMBURSEMENT TO GUEST.
If you are a Host, you are responsible for ensuring that the Experiences you list on the Site meet minimum quality standards regarding adequacy of the description on the Site, safety, health, and do not present a Guest with Guest Issues. Throughout the Experience, Hosts should be available in order to try, in good faith, to resolve Host issues.
If you are a Host, and if (i) Glyd determines that a Guest has suffered a Guest Issue related to an Experience listed by you and (ii) Glyd either reimburses that Guest any amount up to the amount paid by the Guest through the Site for the Experience or provides an alternative Experience to the Guest, you agree to reimburse or refund Glyd up to the amount paid by Glyd within 30 days of Glyd’s request. All determinations of Glyd with respect to the Guest Refund Policy, including without limitation the size of any refund to the Guest, shall be final and binding on the Guests and Hosts. You also agree that in order for you to reimburse Glyd up to the amount paid by Glyd, Glyd may off-set or reduce any amounts owed by Glyd to you by this amount. If the Guest is rescheduled to an alternative Experience, you may lose part or all of the Experience Fee payment for the booking and you may be responsible for reasonable additional costs incurred to reschedule the Guest to the alternative Experience.
The rights of the Guests under the Guest Refund Policy supersede the cancellation policy that otherwise applies to a particular Experience. If you dispute the Guest Issue you may notify us in writing ([email protected]) or via telephone and provide us with information (including evidence) disputing the claims regarding the Guest Issue, provided you must have used reasonable and good faith efforts to try to remedy the Guest Issue with the Guest prior to disputing the Guest Issue claim (and you must provide evidence of having done so). You agree that all determinations of Glyd with respect to the Guest Issue shall be final and binding on the Guests and Hosts regardless of your submission of a dispute against such Guest Issue. In the event of one or more Guest Issues, Glyd, in its discretion, may elect to take additional actions. These actions include, but are not limited to, negatively affecting your listing ranking, automated reviews or notifications indicating Guest Issues, canceling future bookings, suspending or removing the listing of the Experience or imposing penalties or fees for the administrative burden associated with the Guest Issues.
(a) No Assignment/No Insurance. This Guest Refund Policy is not intended to constitute an offer to insure, does not constitute insurance or an insurance contract, does not take the place of insurance obtained or obtainable by the Guest, and the Guest has not paid any premium in respect of the Guest Refund Policy. The benefits provided under this Guest Refund Policy are not assignable or transferable by you. (b) Modification or Termination. Glyd reserves the right to modify or terminate this Guest Refund Policy, at any time, in its sole discretion, and without prior notice. (c) If Glyd modifies this Guest Refund Policy, we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification and Glyd will continue to process all claims for Travel Issues made prior to the effective date of the modification. (d) Entire Agreement and Definitions. This Guest Refund Policy constitutes the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Glyd and you regarding the Guest Refund Policy and supersedes and replaces any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Glyd and you regarding the Guest Refund Policy. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Glyd Terms of Service. Controlling Law. This Guest Refund Policy will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. (e) Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL GLYD’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS GLYD POLICY TERMS, EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE EXPERIENCE FEES COLLECTED BY GLYD FROM THE TRAVELER. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY POSTING A LISTING OR BOOKING AN EXPERIENCE OR OTHERWISE USING THE SITE, SERVICES AS A GUIDE OR TRAVELER, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE POLICY TERMS.
Providers who plan experiences. Guests are free to reject any Itinerary for any reason prior to payment. Once an Itinerary is confirmed by a Guest, any fees paid are non-refundable except as set forth below:
Glyd will endeavor to refund Guest the fees paid for any Itinerary items that have not yet been booked, minus the Guest Fee. Fees for Itinerary items that have already been booked are non-refundable. = If Guest cancels the booking at least 48 hours prior to the start of the experience, Glyd will endeavor to refund the Guest the fees paid for said Itinerary items booked in full, minus the Guest fee. If Guest cancels the booking between 48 and 24 hours prior to the start of the experience, Glyd will endeavor to refund the Guest half of the fees paid for said Itinerary items booked, minus the Guest fee. If Guest cancels the booking under 24 hours prior to the start of the experience, Glyd will not refund the Guest any fees paid for said Itinerary items booked. In the case that the Host of the experience is a MasterHost, the Guest must cancel 5 full business days prior to the start of the experience in order to receive a full refund of the fees paid for said Itinerary items booked, minus the Guest fee. Also in the case that the Host of the experience is a MasterHost, the Guest must cancel between 5 and 3 full business days prior to the start of the experience in order to receive a half refund of the fees paid for said Itinerary items booked, minus the Guest fee.
Whenever possible Glyd will connect Guest to an alternate Provider who can fulfill request. If not, Glyd will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Guest within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation.
CANCELLATION DUE TO OUTSIDE FACTORS.
Certain Experiences may depend on factors outside either party’s control, such as weather (“Outside Factors”). The Provider has the discretion as to whether Outside Factors will prevent the Experience from taking place. As a Provider, if you need to cancel an Experience due to Outside Factors, you must contact the Guest and Glyd (at [email protected]) as early as possible. Subject to the Guest’s consent, the Provider and the Guest may choose to reschedule the Experience for another date. If the Experience cannot be rescheduled, the Guest should contact Glyd so we may assist in finding a replacement Experience. For clarity, in the event the alternative Experience is of a higher price than the former, you may be responsible for any difference in price. In the event the alternative Experience is of a lower price, you may be entitled to a partial refund for the difference. As a Guest, if you have contacted Glyd as provided above and Glyd is unable to find you a replacement Experience, Glyd may refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Guest within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation.

At Glyd’s or your election, all disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service or the Service that are not resolved by mutual agreement may be resolved by binding arbitration to be conducted before JAMS, or its successor. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, arbitration will be held in Redwood City, California before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, or if the parties cannot mutually agree, a single arbitrator appointed by JAMS, and will be conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated by JAMS unless specifically modified in the Terms of Service. The arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator’s decision and award will be made and delivered within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration and within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will not have the power to award damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in the Terms of Service and may not multiply actual damages or award punitive damages or any other damages that are specifically excluded under the Terms of Service, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any claim to such damages. The arbitrator may, in his or her discretion, assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing part) against any party to a proceeding. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, any party may proceed in court without prior arbitration for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm. The provisions of this arbitration section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You agree that Glyd, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if Glyd believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Glyd may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Glyd may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that Glyd will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Service.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Service and Glyd will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. Glyd reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Glyd and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Glyd with respect to the Service. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third-party services, third-party content or third-party software. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Glyd agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Los Angeles County, California. The failure of Glyd to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign this Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Glyd, but Glyd may assign or transfer this Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction.

We encourage users to take advantage of our rating system, our community and common sense in choosing appropriate Itineraries® service offers.
By offering a service, the seller undertakes that he/she has sufficient permissions, rights and/or licenses to provide, sell or resell the service is offered on GLYD. Sellers advertising their Itinerary online must comply with laws and terms of service of the advertising platform or relevant webApp used to advertise. Failing to do so may result in removal of the Itinerary and may lead to the suspension of seller’s account.
For specific terms related to Intellectual Property rights and for reporting claims of copyright infringement (DMCA notices) or trademark infringement – please see our . which forms an integral part of these Terms of Service. Note that it is our policy in appropriate circumstances to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.
Ownership and limitations: Unless clearly stated otherwise on the sellers Itinerary page/description, when the work is delivered, and subject to payment, the buyer is granted all intellectual property rights, including but not limited to, copyrights for the itinerary delivered from the seller, and the seller waives any and all moral rights therein. The delivered work shall be considered work-for-hire under the U.S. Copyright Act. In the event the delivered work does not meet the requirements of work-for-hire or when US Copyright Act does not apply, the seller expressly agrees to assign to buyer the copyright in the delivered work. All transfer and assignment of intellectual property to buyer shall be subject to full payment for the Itinerary and the delivery may not be used if payment is cancelled for any reason. For removal of doubt, in custom created work (such as art work, design work, report generation etc.), the delivered work shall be the exclusive property of buyer, and seller assigns all rights, title and interest in the delivered work. Some Itineraries (including for custom created work) charge additional payments (through Itinerary Extras) for a Commercial Use License. This means that if you purchase the Itinerary for personal use, you will own all rights you require for such use, and will not need the Commercial Use License. If you intend to use it for any charge or other consideration, or for any purpose that is directly or indirectly in connection with any business, or other undertaking intended for profit, you will need to buy the Commercial Use License through a Itinerary Extra and will have broader rights that cover your business use.
Sellers further confirm that whatever information they receive from the buyer, which is not public domain, shall be kept confidential and shall not be shared or used for any purpose whatsoever other than for the delivery of the ordered work to the buyer.
Furthermore, users (both buyers and sellers) agree that unless they explicitly indicate otherwise, the content users voluntarily create/upload to GLYD, including Itinerary texts, photos, videos, usernames, user photos, user videos and any other information, including the display of delivered work, may be used by GLYD for no consideration for marketing and/or other purposes.
Commercial Use License
By purchasing a “Commercial Use License” with your order, the Seller grants you a perpetual, exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license to use the purchased delivery for Permitted Commercial Purposes. All intellectual property rights of the purchased delivery are hereby assigned to you. “Permitted Commercial Purposes” means any business related use, such as (by way of example) advertising, promotion, creating web pages, integration into product, software or other business related tools etc., and strictly excludes any illegal, immoral or defamatory purpose. This License is subject to GLYD’s Terms of Service. There is no warranty, express or implied, with the purchase of this delivery, including with respect to fitness for a particular purpose. Neither the Seller nor GLYD will be liable for any claims, or incidental, consequential or other damages arising out of this license, the delivery or your use of the delivery.
