marsbrookholidayideas.com Terms and Conditions
1. The Site is a Venue and We are Not a Party to any Holiday / Coursel Transaction.
We urge all users to be responsible about their use of this Site and any transaction entered into as a result of either advertising their holidays or purchasing a holiday. We do not own or manage, nor can we contract for, any holiday listed on the Site. Instead, the Site acts as a venue to allow holiday providders who advertise on our Site (each, a “member”) to offer in a variety of pricing formats, a specific holiday to potential customers (each, a “ traveller” and, collectively with a member, the “users”). We are not involved in any transaction between travellers and members even though we may from time to time provide tools that enable a traveller to enter into a transaction to purchase a specific holiday directly from a member (a “Holiday Transaction”). As a result, any aspect of an actual or potential transaction between a traveller and a member, including the quality, safety or legality of the holidays advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any holiday or review), the ability of members to offer a given holiday or the ability of travellers to pay for the holidy(s) are solely the responsibility of each user.
2. Limited License to Use the Site.
If you are aware of or experience any content, activity or communication through or in connection with the Site that appears to be in violation of the above restrictions, or in violation of any other provision of these Terms, we ask that you please inform us of any such violation by sending an email to legal @ marsbrookholidayideas.com (please remove the spaces - they are included purely to prevent spam).

In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this provision, may you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without both our consent and the consent of the other user. You agree that other users may use your personal information to communicate with you in accordance with this provision.
