Offerings, Providers and Provider Services
Terms applicable to all Provider Services
Subject to meeting any requirements (such as completing any verification processes) set by Wishlist and/or the Provider, you can make a Selection on an Offering available on the Wishlist Platform by following the respective booking process.

Upon receipt of a booking confirmation from Wishlist, a legally binding agreement is formed between you and your Provider, subject to any additional terms and conditions of the Provider that apply, including in particular the applicable cancellation policy and any rules and restrictions specified by the Provider. Wishlist will collect the Total Fees at the time of the booking request or upon the Provider’s confirmation.
If you book a Provider Service on behalf of additional guests, you are required to ensure that every additional guest meets any requirements set by the Provider, and is made aware of and agrees to these Terms and any terms and conditions, rules and restrictions set by the Provider. If you are booking for an additional guest who is a minor, you represent and warrant that you are legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor. Minors may only participate in a Provider Service if accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.
All Provider Services are subject to availability and shall be booked in advance in accordance with the requirements found on the Platform. Wishlist makes no claim or guarantee as to the availability of any specific Provider Service and has the right to refuse access to any Offering on the Platform with or without reason. In the event that Wishlist no longer offers, or otherwise terminates or withdraws, an Offering, you shall be entitled to exchange the Selection for another Offering of equal or lesser value.
Wishlist and Client are not responsible for damage that occurs while the User is participating in a Provider Service. Users will be solely responsible for all damage they may inflict against the Provider, Provider’s property, other attendees, Provider employees, injury to the User or their guests, or any other damage caused by the User during the Provider Service.
You should carefully review the description of any Offering you intend to book to ensure you (and any additional guests you are booking for) meet any minimum age, proficiency, fitness, or other requirements that the Provider has specified in their Offering description. At your sole discretion, you may want to inform the Provider of any medical or physical conditions, or other circumstances that may impact your and any additional guest’s ability to participate in any Provider Service. In addition, certain laws, like the minimum legal drinking age in the location of the Provider Service, may also apply. You are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules, and regulations that apply to your participation in a Provider Service.
Before and during a Provider Service you must at all times adhere to the Provider’s instructions.
You may not bring any additional individuals to a Provider Service unless such an individual was added by you as an additional guest during the booking process on the Wishlist Platform.
Once an Offering has been Selected, a User may not make any additions to the Provider Service that causes the cost of the Provider Service to increase. In doing so, the payment method will not work and the Provider will deny service to the User.

Wishlist is not affiliated with any venue, sports team, or performer and is not a primary box office.
By nature, the ticket market is dynamic and constantly changing so tickets displayed may not be available at time of purchase.

Users are responsible to maintain possession of tickets until time of use. Wishlist will not replace lost or stolen tickets.

Users will be unable to book trips with a departure date of less than sixty (60) days in the future. This buffer allows our Travel Partners to secure appropriate accommodations and experiences.
By default, Travel cannot be altered, transferred nor canceled after submitting a selection. In the case that cancellations or rescheduling are allowed, additional fees may apply for rescheduled or canceled trips and fee amounts may vary.

Booking Modifications, Cancellations and Refunds
Providers and Users are responsible for any modifications to a booking that they make including but not limited to date changes, upgrades, change of services, etc. (“Booking Modifications”), and agree to pay any additional fees and taxes associated with such Booking Modifications.
Users cannot cancel a confirmed booking at any time and no refunds will be given to the User in the chance that a cancellation is made.
If a Provider cancels a confirmed booking, the User will receive a full refund of the Total Fees in the form of a new Wishlist Gift Card once Wishlist has collected the Total Fees from the Provider.
For Provider Services, if weather poses a safety risk to Users, or if it prevents a Provider from carrying out a Provider Service that takes place primarily outdoors, Providers may cancel the Provider Service. Providers may also cancel the Provider Service if other conditions exist that would prevent the Provider from offering the Provider Service safely.
In certain circumstances, Wishlist may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary to cancel a pending or confirmed booking and initiate corresponding refunds and payouts. This may be for reasons set forth in these Terms or (i) where Wishlist believes in good faith while taking the legitimate interests of both parties into account, this is necessary to avoid significant harm to Wishlist, other Members, third parties or property, or (ii) for any of the reasons set out in these Terms. In these cases, Users will receive a full refund of the Total Fees in the form of a new Wishlist Gift Card.

You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Wishlist Platform, your publishing of User Content, Selection of any Offering via the Wishlist Platform, your participation in any experience, event, accommodation, travel or use of any other Provider Service, or any other interaction you have with another User whether in person or online remains with you. Neither Wishlist nor any other party or individual involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Wishlist Platform or Provider Services will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Terms, (ii) from the use of or inability to use the Wishlist Platform or Provider Services, (iii) from any communications, interactions or meetings with another User or other persons with whom you communicate, interact or meet with as a result of your use of the Wishlist Platform, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not Wishlist has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Except for our obligations to pay amounts to applicable Providers pursuant to these Terms, in no event will Wishlist’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms and your use of the Wishlist Platform exceed the amounts you have received or paid for Gift Cards on the Wishlist Platform in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Wishlist and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. If you reside outside of the U.S. this does not affect Wishlist’s liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, nor for fraudulent misrepresentation, misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

You are solely responsible for your interactions with Providers and other users of the Platform. To the extent permitted under applicable laws, you hereby release Wishlist from any and all claims or liability related to any product or Provider Service, regardless of whether such product or Provider Service is an Offering available through the Platform, any action or inaction by a Provider, including, without limitation, but not limited to any harm caused to you by action or inaction of a Provider, a Provider’s failure to comply with applicable law and/or failure to abide by the terms of a Provider offering or any other product or service purchased or obtained by you from the Provider, and any conduct, speech or User Content, whether online or offline, of any other third-party.
Wishlist shall be excused from performance under these Terms, to the extent it is prevented or delayed from performing, in whole or in part, as a result of an event or series of events caused by or resulting from: (a) weather conditions or other elements of nature or acts of God; (b) acts of war, acts of terrorism, insurrection, riots, civil disorders, or rebellion; (c) quarantines, pandemics or embargoes; (d) labor strikes; (e) error or disruption to major computer hardware or networks or software failures; or (f) other causes beyond the reasonable control of Wishlist.
Applicable Law & Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement must be brought in state or federal court in Denver, Colorado, unless Wishlist and User both agree to some other location. Wishlist and User both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Denver, Colorado.
Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
(a) Binding Arbitration. Except as specifically stated herein, any dispute or claim between you and Wishlist and/or its subsidiaries, affiliates, and/or any of their respective members, officers, directors, and employees (all such entities collectively referred to herein as the “Wishlist Entities”) arising out of, relating in any way to, or in connection with the Terms, the Platform or your use of the Platform, your Personal Information, User Content, or any Offerings or Provider Services (“Dispute(s)”) shall be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration; except that you may bring a qualifying claim over a Dispute in a small claims court. By virtue of this Dispute Agreement (defined below), you and Wishlist are each forgoing the right to go to court and have a Dispute heard by a judge or jury. The provisions of this Section shall constitute your and Wishlist’s written agreement to arbitrate Disputes under the Federal Arbitration Act (“Dispute Agreement”). The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to its rules, including, without limitation, the AAA’s Consumer-Arbitration Rules, available at https://www.adr.org/consumer. The arbitrator will apply and be bound by this Agreement, apply applicable law and the facts, and issue a reasoned award, if appropriate.
(b) No Class Action Matters. Wishlist and User each agree that we shall bring any Dispute against the other in our respective individual capacities and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, representative proceeding or as an association. In addition, we each agree that Disputes shall be arbitrated only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action and that the arbitrator may award relief (including injunctive relief) only on an individual basis. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these provisions.
