General terms and conditions of TRIPAGES

These general terms and conditions govern the provision of free and paid-for online subscriptions provided by TRIPAGES on its website to the exclusion of all other conditions.

The member acknowledges that they are familiar with them and have accepted them unconditionally prior to placing the order, therefore confirmation of the order automatically implies that the member agrees to the present terms and conditions of sale that have the force of law between the parties.

Any departure from these general terms and conditions requires validation by written agreement from TRIPAGES to that effect.

TRIPAGES reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time. The new terms and conditions will apply to any new offer or order, notwithstanding any prior relations entertained between TRIPAGES and the member.

  2. Complete all the data fields required to prepare the E*Page and/or subscription.
  3. If any, make payment according to the terms and conditions set out on the Tripages website.

TRIPAGES will communicate its confirmation of the recorded order by electronic mail.

TRIPAGES reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order in the event of a problem relating to the order received (non-compliant order, lack of essential information for example), in the event of an order placed by a customer known to be insolvent, in the event of refusal to accept payment by the payment platform used by TRIPAGES, or if there is a dispute such as one relating to a previous order and in that case, an email will be sent to the client.

Customer invoicing is carried out on the basis of the tariffs in force on the order date and on the prices indicated on the order form.

Subscription prices are given both in US dollars and can be exchanged to Uganda Shillings at the current market exchange rate.

TRIPAGES reserves the right to modify its prices at any time. The new prices will apply to all new orders or new offers.

The sale may be made exclusive of VAT, provided customers first inform TRIPAGES of their intra-community VAT number or alternatively if their country is not subject to VAT.

In all other cases, the quoted prices will be marked up by VAT levied at the rate applicable in Uganda on the order date.

Payment

The subscription period shall be that provided in the contract.

The member may at any time request modifications on their E*Page account themselves or by contacting the customer service department, and may do so at any time throughout the duration of their advertising publication subscription. Some modifications may give rise to additional invoicing.

TRIPAGES reserves the right to proceed with verifications of the content of the E*Page following to its publication, and if necessary, may make linguistic and/or grammatical corrections to it where necessary and will not be held liable by the customer for this service.

TRIPAGES may also, at any time, and without notice, interrupt and/or refuse any publication or circulation of an E*Page on its site, and/or remove a hyperlink in an E*Page should the content directly or indirectly targeted tend to be considered contrary to regulations in force, primarily public order, public decency, morals, laws relating to competition, brands and advertising, and/or if TRIPAGES is served a legal injunction to remove access to disputed contentious matter.

TRIPAGES fights cyber squatting

Terms and conditions

The TRIPAGES site and brand have existed on the web since 2011. Millions of Internet users have searched for suppliers and products on TRIPAGES.com in the intervening time. Unfortunately success on this scale attracts cybercriminals intent on exploiting the quality and usefulness of TRIPAGES for themselves without any respect for the law and at the expense of the interests of both TRIPAGES and its users.

These individuals insidiously purchase domain names that are akin to or resemble that of TRIPAGES for the purpose of reselling them, altering the visibility of TRIPAGES by creating sites that imitate the TRIPAGES logo and/or search engine, or enticing users away from TRIPAGES by breaching their trust.

TRIPAGES deprecates these practices. We cannot accept that our users are taken in by these cyber squatters. Thus the TRIPAGES, which is the rightful owner of its copyrighted brands and domain names, regularly institutes proceedings against these web confidence tricksters, and with the help and efficiency of its lawyers, always wins its cases.
