Trip Outside merely makes the Trip Outside Platform available to enable Suppliers and Users to identify and determine the suitability of services for the individual needs of Suppliers and Users alike. You understand and agree that Trip Outside only connects Users with Suppliers and that all services purchased through the Site are provided by Suppliers. You are responsible for any agreement you enter into with any Supplier on this Site. You acknowledge and agree that Trip Outside is not a party to any agreement(s) between you and Supplier. You understand and agree that by providing this platform, Trip Outside in no way creates a contractual agreement with you. Lastly, you understand that any services booked through the Site may require the use of specific gear, safety education, licenses and/or stamps that may not be included in the cost of the overall purchase price.
