The following terms (full detail below, per section) will be understood as followed:
ARTICLE 1 - OUR SERVICES
tribloo.com is a website edited by J2L Developpement, company listed at the Registre du Commerce under n° 533 884 904. The Registered Office of tribloo.com is 56, rue de Rochechouart 75009 Paris - France.
1.1 - Services offered on the website
tribloo.com offers relevant information on dive sites and dive centres around the world. It also provides an online booking service so that users can book a diving service in a dive centre selected and published on tribloo.com.
1.2 - Listed dive centres
The dive centres published on tribloo.com have been selected from a list of criteria established by the founders of tribloo.com. This criteria focus on safety, professional staff, quality gear, friendliness, and eco-responsibility. The selection does not, in any way, mean that the dive centres not published on tribloo.com do not qualify for one or several of the criteria. The notion of 'Best dive centre' is published on the sole ground of the selection criteria that belong to tribloo.com. The criteria is identical throughout the whole process, still it is decided on a subjective basis and can only be attached to a point in time; tribloo.com cannot be held responsible for a change in the offer or the quality of a dive centre once a dive centre is published.
1.3 - Intermediary
tribloo.com is an intermediary between users and dive centres. When using our services, the contract links the user(s) and the dive centre(s). When a user books a service, tribloo.com acts as a go-between for the said user and the said dive centre, sending said user the booking details and confirmation from the dive centre. By booking with tribloo.com, you enter into a contractual agreement with the dive centre you booked in.
1.4 - Information published on the website
The information published on tribloo.com is given and updated regularly by the dive centres themselves, with the exception of some editorial. Contractually with tribloo.com the dive centres must ensure, at all times, that the information relative to their company, their staff, and/or their services are correct and up-to-date. They must inform tribloo.com if any information is wrong or outdated. The dive centres have access to an extranet site in order to easily update their information.
We strive to provide our users with the best service possible; but we cannot check nor guarantee that all the information provided is accurate, complete, and exact. tribloo.com cannot be held responsible for any mistakes (i.e. obvious mistakes and/or typos), any inaccurate, misleading or false information, or any lack of information.
Every dive centre hereby is and remains responsible at any time for the accuracy and completeness of the descriptive information published on tribloo.com, including its availabilities and fees.
ARTICLE 2 - BOOKING SERVICE OPERATION
2.1 - The offer conditions and the booking service
2.1.1 - Booking conditions
The booking service is available every day and at any time. Users can search for a destination, a time of departure, and/or any diving services offered by tribloo.com.
According to the criteria of the users search, you will be directed to:
If one of the offers matches the search, the user fills in the online booking form, not forgetting the mandatory fields and sections:
The dive centres' availabilities are filled in and updated by the dive centres themselves. Bookings on tribloo.com must be finalized at least 12 hours before the actual start of the service (local time) to be effective.
2.1.2 - Booking process
Once the booking is effective the user receives a confirmation email to notify the user that the request has been registered and the dive centre has been contacted with user’s request. If the dive centre accepts the said booking, the user receives a final confirmation email honoring their request. This said final email is written proof that the booking had been validated and is effective. This confirmation includes all the information
s and specificities of the booking and the dive centre (i.e. dates, times, service and limits). Please read it carefully.
If the dive centre declines the booking, the user will also receive an email, indicating why the booking was refused. Whenever possible, the dive centre gives the user some options or alternatives for their last booking.
In the case that a dive centre has accepted a booking, tribloo.com sends all the user's details so they can communicate together on planning the dive, i.e. the dive centre becomes the user's main point of contact and vice versa. The user can still contact tribloo.com if they have any questions, via the section 'Contact us' on tribloo.com, located on the homepage.
ARTICLE 4 - FARES
4.1 - Fees published on tribloo.com
Fees for services published on tribloo.com are the current fees for the dive centres, i.e. they are set by the dive centres themselves. Prices are in Euros or US Dollars. Tribloo.com is working hard to offer their users the best fees possible for diving services: fees published on the website are usually inferior to the ones on public display in the dive centre and/or the dive centre's own website. These fees might vary in time and with the seasons: the user has to accept this eventuality for a discrepancy.
4.2 - Best fee guaranteed
When the booking is effective, if the user finds either on the internet or through the dive centre itself, a diving service cheaper than what is published on tribloo.com, tribloo.com will pay the difference between the cheaper service found and tribloo.com fee.
4.3. - Services payment
The same terms of sales will also apply to the bookings of promotional offers and discounts.
ARTICLE 5 - USER'S OBLIGATIONS

The user is committed to modify their profile if any information has changed, including modifications on the user's diving certifications and/or diving experience. It is paramount that the user checks that the email address provided is correct.
5.2 - Obligations towards the dive centre
The user is committed to present themselves to the dive centre where the booking was made, at the time and on the date agreed upon beforehand between the two parties. The user is committed to bringing the documents aforementionned by the dive centre in the terms of sales (e.g. medical certificate, dive certification, etc.). Tribloo.com is not responsible for any forgotten documents from the user or for any incident that may impede the user to use the service(s) booked. In any case, the terms of sales are the legal reference.
ARTICLE 6 - BOOKING CANCELLATION
1 - Booking cancellation conditions
Every dive centre has its own terms of sales that details the booking cancellation conditions following the confirmation of a booking. We recommend our users to read carefully the conditions published on the website before finalizing the booking. Once the bookng is effective, the user is bound by a legal agreement to the terms of sales of the dive centre.
When booking on tribloo.com, the user declares he or she has read and accepted all cancellation and no-show conditions, along with all the extra conditions the dive centre requires for the booking. The user is reminded of these said conditions throughout the booking process and in the booking request email. Some special offers and/or discounts do not apply to the current conditions: we recommend that the user always checks the conditions before finalizing a booking.
Any litigation concerning a booking cancellation is to be dealt with by the dive centre and the user directly. The user cannot sue tribloo.com over extra fees or fines regarding their booking. If the user is asked to pay for or to refund a service, it must be dealt with by the dive centre and the user directly.
