Terms of Use

These Terms of Use, as may be amended from time to time, apply to all our services directly or indirectly (through distributors) made available online, through any mobile device, by email or by telephone. By accessing, browsing and using our Champify.com or any of our applications through whatever platform (hereafter collectively referred to as the “Champify”) and/or by completing a booking, you acknowledge and agree to have read, understood and agreed to the Terms of Use set out below (including the privacy policy).

These pages, the content and infrastructure of these pages, and the online  booking service provided on these pages and through Champify (“Champify.com”) are owned, operated and provided by Champify, Inc. (“Champify”, “us”, “we” or “our”) and are provided for you subjected to the Terms of Use set out below.

  1. Scope of our Service

Through Champify, we (Champify and our affiliate (distribution) partners) provide an online platform through which all types of Program Partners, can advertise their services for booking, and through which visitors to Champify.com can make such bookings. By making a booking through Champify, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Program Partner at which you book. From the point at which you make your booking, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the provider, transmitting the details of your booking to the relevant Program Partner and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the Program Partner. We are not responsible for the delivery of the service by the provider.

When rendering booking on Champify, the information that we disclose is based on the information provided to us by Program Partners website (Camps and Program Providers). As such, the Program Partners are fully responsible for committing and communicating all rates, availability and other information which is displayed on Champify.com. Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our Champify.com or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each Program Partner remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including the rates and availability) displayed on Champify.com. Our Champify.com does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement of the quality, service level, qualification or (star) rating of any Camps or Programs made available. However, we are only showing American Camp Association Accredited Camps currently because of the rigorous safety checks they have in place.

Our services are made available for personal and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to re-sell, deep-link, use, copy, monitor (e.g. spider, scrape), display, download or reproduce any content or information, software, products or services available on our Champify.com for any commercial or competitive activity or purpose.

  1. Consumer Prices

The prices on our site are highly competitive. All prices on Champify.com are per program for the duration of the program and are displayed including all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes), unless stated differently on Champify.com or in the confirmation email.

Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our Champify.com for a specific Program, however, these rates made by Program Partners may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example in respect to cancellation and refund. Please check the Program details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your booking.

Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding.

All special offers and promotions are marked as such.

  1. Privacy

Champify respects your privacy. Please take a look at our Privacy Policy for further information.

4. Pricing

Our service is free of charge to Consumers because, unlike many other parties, we will not charge you for our service or add any additional (booking) fees to the program rate.

For every booking made through the site 1% will be donated to the Summer Champs fund to enable disadvantaged Kids to experience Programs.

      1. Credit Card

If applicable and available, certain Program Partners offer the opportunity for bookings to be paid (wholly or partly and as required under the payment policy of the accommodation) to the Program Partner during the booking process by means of secure online payment (all to the extent offered and supported by your bank). Payment is safely processed from your credit/debit card or bank account to the bank account of the Program Partner through a third party payment processor.

For certain rates or special offers, please note that your credit card may be pre-authorized or charged (sometimes without any option for refund) upon booking and confirmation of the booking. Please check the Program details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your booking.

In the event of credit card fraud or unauthorized use of your credit card by third parties, most banks and credit card companies bear the risk and cover all the charges resulting from such fraud or misuse, which may sometimes be subject to a deductible amount. In the event that your credit card company or bank charges you the deductible because of unauthorized transactions resulting from a booking made on our Champify.com, we are not liable for any amount. If you have any issues, please contact immediately at: oliver@champify.com

      1. Cancellation

By making a booking, you accept and agree to the Cancellation Policy. You may cancel your booking within 14 days for a refund. Cancellations 15+ after booking are currently non-refundable. For more information see our Cancellation Policy.

      1. Further Correspondence

By completing a booking, you agree to receive (i) an email which we may send you shortly prior to your arrival date, giving you information on your destination and providing you with certain information and offers relevant to your booking and destination, and (ii) an email which we may send to you promptly after your Program inviting you to complete our guest review form. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information about how we may contact you.

      1. Ranking and Guest Reviews

The default setting of the ranking of Program Partners on our Champify.com is 5 Star. For your convenience, we also offer other ways to rank the Program Partner. Please note that the Default Ranking is created through a fully automated ranking system (algorithm) and is based on multiple criteria.

The completed guest review may be (a) uploaded onto the relevant Program Partner’s information page on our Champify.com for the sole purpose of informing (future) customers of your opinion of the service (level) and quality of the Program Partner, and (b) (wholly or partly) used and placed by Champify.com at its sole discretion (e.g. for marketing, promotion or improvement of our service) on our Champify.com or such social media platforms, newsletters, special promotions, apps or other channels owned, hosted, used or controlled by Champify.
