Terms of Service
Terms of our services.
PRCPTION Travel and its projects do indeed run off the engine of human cooperation, but it's necessary to remember that this vision is still becoming reality in our world today. And things like legal text is still required--just in case there are some misunderstandings. This legalese is here to make sure both the PRCPTION Travel network and its community members are all under the same understanding of what our purposes and your participation entail.
That said, remember that if we ever have an issue with your behavior on any PRCPTION Travel related application, we will contact you before taking drastic measures. Should anything become of concern for you, we encourage you to do the same by using our Contact Form.
