3. Travel Services

3.1 Triporama Is Not An Auctioneer

Triporama makes no representation or warranty with respect to the ability of any travel provider in its Travel Provider Network or otherwise (a "provider") to deliver any services or products. Triporama cannot ensure that a provider will actually complete a transaction or deliver any of the services or products that it agrees to deliver. Triporama does not transfer legal ownership of tickets, reservations, vouchers, coupons or other products or services from Provider to User, and nothing in the Agreement shall modify applicable law governing sale of goods, or services, including travel services.

3.2 Purchasing Travel Services

By purchasing travel services or products you agree to be bound by the conditions of sale included in the provider's offer for services or products. Unless you and the provider agree otherwise, the provider will deliver the agreed-upon services and products and you will become the lawful owner thereof, in accordance with applicable law.

3.3 Carrier Requirements

A supplier of travel that is an air carrier may be required to make available to the public the terms of its contract of carriage pursuant to Title 14, Part 253 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The circumvention of a carrier's rules, including practices such as back-to-back ticketing (purchasing two or more tickets with overlapping travel dates in order to circumvent minimum stay requirements) and hidden-city ticketing (purchasing tickets including segments which the purchaser does not intent to use in order to circumvent an air carrier's pricing structure) is prohibited by many air carriers. The use of prohibited ticket practices may result in the carrier canceling the ticket, denied boarding, revocation of frequent flier miles and other benefits, additional charges to the purchaser's credit card, additional charges collected at the airport, or future invoicing. You are responsible for ensuring that your purchases abide by the terms or conditions of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal, including terms or conditions of purchase set forth in an air carrier's fare rules or contract of carriage.

Provider agrees to waive any rights it has under any state statute, including California Civil Code section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

4.2 Indemnification

User agrees to indemnify Triporama for any losses, damages, costs, expenses and legal fees (including those incurred in enforcing this indemnification) resulting from or related to any and all suits, claims, complaints, demands and actions of any kind and in any forum brought against Triporama by any third party, including any common carrier, supplier, provider or User, which arises out of any act or omission of User or its agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, representatives, or employees.
