Last update: June 6, 2020.
#LocalsFromZero Organizers' and #LFZ Scouts' role in the current development phase of the project is to provide and exchange free online information about the types of local experience offers available in different destinations - for all these offers we do not charge any fees.
Experience Providers (= local artisans, experts, associations, clubs, charities and more) set prices and accept all payments. All payments are handled by the Experience Providers.
Despite careful communication, all information and prices listed on the #LocalsFromZero website are informal. For the final confirmation of the content, prices and the available time slots, the tourist must communicate with our #LFZ Scouts.
#LFZs Scouts are responsible for the greatest possible care and promptness of the information provided. However, they cannot be held liable in case of inaccurate or subsequently changed data provided by Experience Providers.
Experience Providers are responsible for the lawful execution and accounting of their activities. The ultimate responsibility for the content, price and timing of the experience rests with the Experience Provider, who also assumes full responsibility for any disputes, accidents and unfortunate occurrences at the Experience Provider's location.
Experience Providers are responsible for complying with all necessary health and safety regulations while accepting visitors to and hosting them on their premises. Experience Providers are deemed liable for all costs incurred in the event of cancellation caused on their behalf.
