All information, artwork, text, video, audio, media files, and images displayed on or contained within the Site (collectively, the “Content”) are the property of Expedia or its third-party licensors. Expedia, or its third-party licensors, as applicable, retain all right, title, and interest in and to the Content and all intellectual property rights related thereto.

All brands, names, logos, product and service names, designs and slogans incorporated into the Site (collectively the “Expedia Marks”) are owned by Expedia, its affiliates, or its licensors. You may not use the Expedia Marks without Expedia’s prior written permission.
Links to Third-Party Sites
The Site may provide links to third-party websites or other websites of Expedia’s affiliates or related companies (“Unrelated Sites”). These links are provided solely as a convenience to you, and these Terms do not control the Unrelated Sites. Your access, reliance on, and use of these links and any Unrelated Sites is entirely at your own risk and is subject to such Unrelated Sites’ terms and conditions. Expedia is not responsible for, and will not have any liability or responsibility to you, for the content on, or your use of, any third-party website. Our inclusion of hyperlinks to Unrelated Sites does not imply any endorsement of such sites or the material found on them.
You agree to comply with all applicable federal, state, local and international laws and regulations when using the Site. Additionally, you may not, without our express written, prior permission: (a) access, monitor or copy any content or information on the Site using any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means or any manual process for any purpose; (b) violate the restrictions in any robot exclusion headers on Site or bypass or circumvent other measures employed to prevent or limit access to Site; (c) take any action that imposes, or may impose, in our discretion, an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (d) deep-link to any portion of Site for any purpose; or (e) “frame”, “mirror” or otherwise incorporate any part of the Site into any other website (each of the preceding, a “Prohibited Use”).
Response to Violations
Expedia reserves the right to take any action we determine is necessary if we believe that your use of the Site violates these Terms, infringes the rights of any person or entity, threatens the personal safety of any person or entity, is a Prohibited Use, or could create liability for Expedia. Any such action by Expedia does not limit our rights or remedies at law or in equity.
Disclaimer of Warranties and Limits on Liabilities
THE SITE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITH ALL FAULTS AND DEFECTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE. WITHOUT LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, EXPEDIA MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND THAT THE SITE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULTS, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS, SYSTEMS OR SITE, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, MEET ANY PERFORMANCE OR RELIABILITY STANDARDS OR BE ERROR FREE, THAT ANY ERRORS OR DEFECTS CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED, THAT THE INFORMATION THEREIN WILL BE SUITABLE FOR YOUR NEEDS, OR THAT THE SITE IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. EXPEDIA MAY MAKE IMPROVEMENTS AND/OR CHANGES TO THE SITE AT ANY TIME. THE INCLUSION OF ANY PARTICULAR PRODUCT OR SERVICE ON THE SITE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE ANY ENDORSEMENT OR RECOMMENDATION OF SUCH PRODUCTS OR SERVICE BY EXPEDIA.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF OR LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATIONS ON THE APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
IN NO EVENT SHALL EXPEDIA BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH, YOUR ACCESS TO, OR USE OF THE SITE OR WITH ANY DELAY OR INABILITY TO ACCESS, DISPLAY OR USE THE SITE, INCLUDING OUR INVESTIGATION OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE, WHETHER BASED ON A THEORY OF NEGLIGENCE, CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, AND EVEN IF EXPEDIA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
If, despite the limitation above, Expedia is found liable for any loss or damage which arises out of or is in any way connected with any of the occurrences described above, then the liability of Expedia will in no event exceed, in the aggregate, the greater of (a) the fees (if any) you paid to Expedia for access to the Site, or (b) One-Hundred Dollars (US$100.00).
The limitation of liability reflects the allocation of risk between the parties, and Expedia would be unwilling to make the Site available to you without such limitations. The limitations specified in this section will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in these terms is found to have failed its essential purpose. The limitations of liability provided in these terms inure to the benefit of Expedia.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Expedia, its affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, successors and assigns from and against any and all claims, causes of action, demands, recoveries, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other costs or expenses of any kind or nature including but not limited to reasonable legal and accounting fees resulting from your: (a) breach of these Terms; (b) violation of any law or the rights of a third party; or (c) use of the Site or any of the Contents.
We appreciate hearing from you. Please be aware that by submitting suggestions, comments or other feedback related to the Site or Content (collectively, “Submissions”), you hereby assign to Expedia all your worldwide right, title and interest in and to all Submissions, even if you have designated such Submissions as confidential. You agree to promptly provide assistance as may, in Expedia’s opinion, be necessary to document, perfect and maintain Expedia’s rights in the Submissions. Further, you shall ensure that the Submissions shall not infringe any right of any third party. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not provide us with any Submissions.
You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts located in King County, Washington, USA, for all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or use of Site.
If any part of these Terms is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired. Our failure or delay in enforcing any provision of these Terms at any time does not waive our right to enforce the same or any other provision(s) hereof in the future.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Expedia with respect to the Site and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and Expedia with respect to the Site. Your obligations to indemnify Expedia, along with any other part of these terms which, by their nature should survive termination of these Terms or your right to use the Site, shall survive.
You acknowledge that irreparable harm would result in the event of a breach by you of these Terms and that monetary damages in such event could be inadequate to compensate Expedia. Consequently, in the event of breach of any of these Terms, Expedia is entitled, in addition to such monetary relief as may be recoverable, to such temporary, preliminary and/or permanent injunctive relief as may be necessary to restrain any continuing or further breach of these Terms, without showing or proving any actual damages or posting a bond or comparable security. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
