The following terms are effective from: 27 November 2023

This agreement (the "Agreement") is a legal agreement between advertisers ("Partner") and Horizon Guides / I&I Travel Media Ltd (“Horizon Guides” / “we” / “us”), a company registered in England and Wales with company number 09681387.

Horizon Guides permits use of the service and interface by the Partner on the basis of this Agreement. By checking the box confirming acceptance of this Agreement, the Partner agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.

1. Services

Horizon Guides provides a digital advertising product, accessed by the Partner via an online dashboard interface (“Service”).

In order to fulfil the Service, Horizon Guides shall publish information ("listings") on the Partner’s behalf. Such listings include company profiles and product information. The data and information in the listings constitute the “Content” provided by the Partner. Such Content may be published on the Horizon Guides platform and our owned media channels.

Horizon Guides allows Partners to maintain Free or Paid listings. Paid listings enable readers to click from the Horizon Guides platform to visit the Partner’s website. Partners are charged on a cost per click basis for the clicks sent to the Partner’s website.

Horizon Guides will provide accurate reports on campaign performance, including the number of clicks generated during each invoicing period. Horizon Guides’ click reports will provide the sole basis of any usage statements and fees accrued by the Partner in each period.

2. Content

The Partner permits Horizon Guides to distribute and publish Content on the platform. Such Content includes:

i. Partner’s business name, taglines, logo, company description;

ii. Partner’s location(s) of operation and nature of activities offered;

iii. Partner’s products (tours, activities, services), including product titles & descriptions, inclusions, and product prices;

iv. URLs relevant to the Partner’s homepage and/or individual product pages on Partner’s website;

v. Images related to Partner’s business and/or products.

The Partner grants Horizon Guides permission to publish and distribute the above Content in the fulfilment of the Horizon Guides Service.

Horizon Guides will not make routine checks on the copyright of any Content provided by the Partner. The Partner is wholly responsible for establishing the ownership, copyright and legality of use for all Content provided to Horizon Guides.

The Partner is exclusively responsible for ensuring the proper functioning of the Partner’s website and any URLs provided. The Partner may update their URLs or Content at any time. Clicks sent to non-functioning URLs will be billed as normal.

Horizon Guides may make edits to the Content supplied as deemed necessary for the provision of the Service. Horizon Guides may, as deemed necessary for the delivery of the Service, remove Content or request alterations from the Partner.

3. Term

This Agreement shall, unless otherwise terminated as provided in this Agreement, commence upon Partner confirming acceptance of these terms and creating an account on Horizon Guides, and shall continue until either the Partner requests their account be disabled and closed, or Horizon Guides suspends or terminates the Partner's account.

4. Cancellation & Termination

The Partner may determine the duration and active status of their listings either manually via their account manager or via the Horizon Guides dashboard. Listings can be enabled or disabled at any time. The Partner may request their account be disabled or closed at any time.
