Network and Company Introduction

MaxLifestyle.net is a network of Lifestyle-related websites created, maintained and run by MaxLifestyle International Ltd. On these websites, we handle a multitude of specialty subjects ranging from extreme sports like snowboarding, rock climbing and mountain biking, to personal development subjects like yoga and meditation. Each of these lifestyle subjects is handled from multiple perspectives divided into 5 main sections per subject website:
  • INFO: Information articles that cover the subject from every possible angle.
  • SHOP: Shop portal where we combine the inventories of the leading online suppliers of products related to the chosen subject.
  • TRAVEL: Our worldwide products directory where we list all holiday services and products related to the chosen subject.
  • NEWS: News items (updated daily), reports and events concerning the chosen subject
  • COMMUNITY: Our community section where members can exchange knowledge, experiences, pictures and much more about the subject.
For more information about MaxLifestyle.net, please visit our network homepage at www.MaxLifestyle.net.

Description of Service

The "Program" offers companies, organisations, groups and individuals who offer any kind of travel service, or travel related service, the opportunity to become our "Partner" thereby giving them a user-friendly method to present their services directly on one ore more of our related websites. By becoming a Partner to this "Program" and using our Service, the Partner agrees to comply with the terms and conditions set out in these TOS. In more detail the Service entails the following:
  • Any Travel Service Provider can create a Travel Partner Account (the "Account"). Upon registration you will have access to the Travel Partner Pages ("TPP") and you have become a Partner .
  • The TPP are a web interface to our travel system ("System"). The TPP enables Partners to insert their own travel services into our database in the form of so-called service Presentations ("Presentations").
  • The TPP gives the Partner access to Presentations Management functions such as editing and updating Presentations, activating Presentations, deleting Presentations, adding pictures to Presentations, setting Referral Information and all other functions needed to control the content of Presentations, Referral Pages and their statuses in our System.
  • The TPP gives the Partner access to Account management functions such as editing account information, changing settings, and other functions needed to control the Account and the settings of the TPP for the Partner.
  • The TPP gives the Partner access to manuals and help functions that explain how the TPP can be used to perform all Service functions.
  • The Presentations in our System are available on one or more of our numerous sites. On which website the package is available depends on the categorisation of the Presentation. On relevant websites in the MaxLifestyle.net network the Presentations will be presented in a summarized version in listings and search results. If a Client chooses to read more about a Presentation a detailed version will be shown. This detailed version covers an entire web page.
  • The TPP enables the Partner to set a Referring Page. This page can be customized for each Presentation and shows the details a client can use to get more information about the Partner's services, make reservations or place orders. Each Presentation's referring page is reached if a Client clicks on the 'Bookings & More Information' button present on each Presentation's detailed view. In this way a visitor of a MaxLifestyle.net website can become a potential client of the Partner.
  • At this moment this service is offered totally free of charge. At a later stage ABC Group may introduce compensation plans where Partners will have to pay for this service on a small fixed monthly costs basis, cost per view, cost per click or cost per booking basis. Another possible scenario is that we will charge for listings on certain pages or that we will charge for higher/more prominent listings. At this moment however none of these plans are in place and all partners will be notified well before time should such plans be implemented in the future. All partners will always have the option not to participate in any future paid service that we might offer through the Program.
The Service should be seen as an extension to traditional advertising where instead of placing a banner or popup, the Partner is able to present their services in a user-friendly and relevant way on our sites using a full web page to give all possible details.
