Cancellation by Arctic Inbound
Due to reasons of higher power and reasons beyond our control, Arctic Inbound reserves the right to partially or fully cancel the tour. Monies paid for cancelled services will be refunded, but Arctic Inbound will not be liable for any further claims.
Liability by Arctic Inbound
Arctic Inbound has the obligation to choose all services carefully, and to prepare the tour in the best way possible. In the unlikely event that services are not fully carried out due to an error made by Arctic Inbound, we reserve the right to provide equivalent services in compensation. In this case, further damage claims will not be accepted. Subject to this settlement, in case a breach of contract is committed the direct liability of Arctic Inbound for immediate loss or injury to the client subsists, provided that the breach was not caused by Force Majeure or the behavior of the client or a tour participant, and that it is a question of the non-performance of a promised service or an alteration of services which has less value than the service agreed upon in the original agreement. The amount of this liability is restricted by the sum of the agreed cost of the tour.
Furthermore the providers of the various services are basically personally liable to the client, in case the services are not being carried out in a satisfying way or to their full extent, contrary to the expectations.
The liability of the individual coach, taxi, shipping and other transport companies contracted by Arctic Inbound for the purpose of organizing a tour, depends on the appropriate laws of the general conditions of business, on the contracts obligations and on common usage.
Any arising complaints must be directed to Arctic Inbound immediately and confirmed in writing. In case complaints cannot be solved on the spot, they have to be directed to Arctic Inbound in writing within 30 days after the termination of the tour. Later claims cannot be taken into consideration.
Some of our tour packages include activities such as dog sledding, and optional activities such as glacier walks, snowmobile safaris, ice fishing and similar. In this relation Arctic Inbound acts as an agent only for the activity providers, thus Arctic Inbound shall not under any circumstances be held liable for injury, damage, loss or accident caused by participation in or in connection with such activities.
