Thank you for choosing fair tourism and the Services of MyGuyd!

These Terms of Service (“Terms“) represent a legally binding agreement (“Agreement“) between you and MyGuyd (as defined below). The Terms are used to legally frame your access to and use of the MyGuyd website, including subdomains and mobile applications for Smartphone, Tablet or other smart devices (collectively, “Site“). The term “MyGuyd Platform” in these Terms refer to the Site and any MyGuyd Services.

When these Terms talk about “MyGuyd,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to the MyGuyd company you are contracting with, namely MyGuyd e.K., Baaderstr. 61, 80469 München, Germany.

 

1. Terminology and functionality

The MyGuyd Platform is an online marketplace for tours. Registered users (“Users”) and certain third parties have the possibilty to offer services (Users and third parties who offer services are “Guides” and the services they offer are “”Tours” or “Tour Services”. The Site is based on a listing theme, so Tour Services on the MyGuyd Platform are as well “Listings”.) Users or third parties have the possibility to book such Tour Services (Users or third parties using Tour Services are “Customers”). Tour Services may include single or multi-day activities, access to unique events and locations and any other travel and non-travel related services.

 

2. Main legal principle of the MyGuyd Platform

It is the exclusive responsibility of the guide (also referred as “Guyd”) for complying with all applicable laws in the city, state and country their tour is being held. MyGuyd is not responsible for the tours. The MyGuyd Platform is an online marketplace for tours and guides, but not a tour provider. Guides need to identify, understand and comply to all rules and regulations that apply to their Listings and Tour Services. Some countries, regions or cities might ask tour guides to obtain a license before providing their services. This includes as well the operation of a car or any other vehicle. Guides have the exclusive responsibility for identifying and obtaining any required licenses, permits, or registrations for any Tour Services they offer. Guides should be aware of the potential case, that certain Tour Services may be prohibited. Guides, who don´t follow the obligations and comply to the laws may face penalties. If in doubt, or any questions arise on how local laws apply to your Listing(s) and Tour Service(s) on MyGuyd, legal guidance is advisable.

 

3. The MyGuyd Services

3.1 MyGuyd is the provider of the MyGuyd Platform. MyGuyd does neither own, offer or provide, nor organise, sell or manage any Listings or Tour Services. MyGuyd is also not responsible for the deliverance of the Tours. MyGuyd is not an organiser or retailer of travel packages under Directive (EU) 2015/2302. Guides alone are responsible for their Listings and Tour Services. MyGuyd is not and does not become a party to any participant in any contractual relationship between Users. MyGuyd is not a tour agency. MyGuyd is not acting as an insurer. By booking or accepting a Tour, Users or third parties are entering into a contract directly with each other. 

3.2 If you use the MyGuyd Platform as a Guide, your relationship with MyGuyd is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent or partner of MyGuyd.

Because of the lack of control, (i) MyGuyd cannot guarantee the existence, quality, legality, suitability or safety of the Tours, and (ii) MyGuyd cannot guarantee the truth or accuracy of any Listing description or Reviews. MyGuyd expects and endorses a fair community but we are not responsible for Users, or the conduct, deliverance and performance of any User or third party.  

3.4 The term of “user verification” or “verified” users (or similar language) is a simple acknowledgement that the User has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. The term is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by MyGuyd about any User. The term does not indicate deeper verification of a User’s identity or background or whether the User is trustworthy, suitable or safe. MyGuyd reccommends to use common sense, and when in doubt about a User, don´t book the Tour.
