1.2 Usage of myIDgo
a) The use of myIDgo as a search engine and price comparison for travel services is available to airline employees. LHIND does not charge any costs for the use of myIDgo.
b) The price offers displayed on myIDgo are not offers by LHIND. LHIND merely compares the offers provided by third parties (hereafter “Third Party Provider”) and displays them on myIDgo in accordance with your search specifications. The booking of the respective travel service takes place via reservations interfaces or on linked pages of the third-party providers. When you make a booking using myIDgo or through any of the Services made available to you there, you are entering into a contract with the Third Party Provider offering the service, product or ameni-ty, and agreeing to pay all amounts when due and comply with the Third Party Provider’s rules and restrictions regarding availability, use of fares, products and services, subject to that Third Party Provider’s general terms of trade or business. We disclaim, and you shall and do hereby forever waive and release us from any and all liability on our part for the acts and/or omissions of any Third Party Providers. As such, please read their general terms carefully. LHIND and its Third Party Providers reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received when due.
c) The prices displayed on the platform are either shown to you in the national currency or in cur-rency of the location of the item to be booked. The prices are converted at preset exchange rates. If the currency set differs from the exchange rates used on the third-party provider's site, this may result in conversion differences.
d) Prices are typically shown per night (hotel) / per day (car). For booking periods exceeding one night, the average price per night in the selected period is displayed. All displayed prices include, if applicable, the statutory sales tax.
e) If you have registered to use myIDgo, then you have already chosen or been assigned a username and password as part of the registration process. You should never allow anyone else to use your user name and password to access myIDgo or any Services. You are solely respon-sible for maintaining and protecting the confidentiality of your username and password, and for all activities, transactions and conduct on the part of anyone using your username and password on myIDgo, regardless of whether they did so with your knowledge, approval or consent. We re-serve the right to change, reclaim, restrict and/or suspend your username and password and/or your access to myIDgo and the Services at any time and for any reason, with or without prior notice, in our sole discretion but shall have no duty or obligation to do so for so long as your ac-count remains active.
1.3 Modifications to the General Terms & Conditions
LHIND reserves the right at its sole discretion to unilaterally modify and amend these General Terms & Conditions (hereinafter: “modified General Terms & Conditions”), in whole or in part, at any time without notice, by such means as it deems reasonable and appropriate, including with-out limitation, by posting the modified General Terms and Condition in myIDgo and noting the date upon which they were last revised, or by emailing a copy of or link to the modified General Terms & Conditions to you at the email address you use to log in to myIDgo. The modified Gen-eral Terms & Conditions will be legally binding on and enforceable against you immediately upon posting. Your use of myIDgo and/or purchase of any Services at any time following any such posting shall irrefutably evidence your intent and agreement to be bound by the modified Gen-eral Terms & Conditions, regardless of whether you had actual knowledge of such modified General Terms & Conditions at the time. As such, you should review the General Terms & Con-ditions in myIDgo from time to time and as often as you deem necessary or appropriate. If you do not agree to be bound by any such modified General Terms & Conditions, then you must immediately cease all use of myIDgo and the Services; otherwise, your conduct in continuing to use myIDgo will be deemed for all purposes to irrefutably evidence your intent and continuing agreement to be bound by the modified General Terms & Conditions, and any transactions you may make or enter into subsequent to the posting thereof will be subject to such modified Gen-eral Terms & Conditions.

1.5.1 User Submissions
To the extent that we allow you the ability to upload information or other content of any kind (col-lectively, “User Submissions”, or each, a “User Submission”) on to myIDgo and that subsequent-ly you do so, you represent and warrant that:
a) you have all necessary right, power and authority to upload, reproduce and distribute the User Submission through myIDgo;
b) the User Submission is true, accurate, timely and not misleading at the time you upload it;
c) your uploading, reproduction and/or distribution of the User Submission will not constitute or encourage a criminal offence or violate the rights of any party or otherwise create lia-bility or violate any relevant local, national or international law;

e) neither your provision of the User Submission nor any of the information contained there-in will violate any policy, duty or other obligation by which you may be bound or which you may otherwise owe to your employer or to any third party, at law or in equity, or any applicable law, statute or regulation; and

1.6 Liability for defects
LHIND is not the contract holder for the bookable travel services. The respective third party pro-vider is solely responsible for any defects.
a) The following applies to the use of myIDgo:
aa) LHIND is not liable for the accuracy, quality, completeness, reliability or credibility of the con-tent provided by Internet users and/or websites. This does not apply, however, if LHIND was aware or should have been aware of the incorrectness, incompleteness, lack of up-to-dateness or other erroneous information and LHIND failed to correct this intentionally or through gross negligence.
bb) The content provided by our booking pages/Internet users/app users with reference to the respective travel service for publication on myIDgo and its verification is the sole responsibility of the booking pages/Internet users/app users. In particular, hyperlinks, advertising banners, infor-mation on types of accommodation, excursion destination or provider data and the like are pro-vided to LHIND by our booking pages and the Internet/app users and do not constitute a recom-mendation or information by LHIND. Booking sites/Internet users/app users are required by LHIND to regularly check and update the content they post on the platform. As soon as LHIND becomes aware of inaccurate, incomplete, illegal and/or otherwise inappropriate content, such content will be corrected, deleted and/or blocked. The publication of user content and reports by LHIND does not constitute an expression of opinion by LHIND; in particular, LHIND does not adopt such content as its own. If LHIND becomes aware of inappropriate, unacceptable or illegal user content, it will be deleted and/or blocked.
cc) The information on the booking sites is updated several times a day via automated process-es. For technical reasons, however, it is not possible to update the prices and availabilities com-municated to us by the booking pages in real time. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that the price displayed on the booking pages may no longer correspond to the price indicated on the pages of LHIND in individual cases. LHIND assumes no liability for the accuracy of the information, in particular the prices and availability, unless the inaccuracy of the information is due to intentional or grossly negligent conduct on the part of LHIND.
b) LHIND shall not be liable for technical malfunctions whose cause is not within LHIND's sphere of responsibility or for damage caused by force majeure. If necessary for technical or other rea-sons, LHIND may carry out technical work on myIDgo, which in individual cases may affect the uninterrupted availability of myIDgo. LHIND will endeavor to minimize any restrictions on the use of myIDgo and, to the extent possible, inform Internet/app users accordingly.
1.8 Data protection, e-mail advertising
a) The protection of personal data (hereinafter: “Data”) provided by Internet/app users is a top priority for LHIND. Please refer to our Data Protection page on how myIDgo ensures compli-ance with data protection.
b) LHIND collects, processes and uses the Data of users only if they have given their consent to do so by creating a myIDgo account or if a legal provision permits the collection, processing or use of the Data.
c) LHIND collects, processes and uses only Data as is necessary for the provision of LHIND's services, the use and operation of the web pages/apps and/or services offered.
d) Due to legal regulations (Section 7 (3) UWG), myIDgo is entitled to send the Internet/app user information on its own similar goods and services to the e-mail address given when booking, even without consent. The Internet/app user can object to the use of the e-mail address for this purpose at any time without incurring any costs charged by LHIND.
If you breach any of your covenants, representations, warranties or any other terms or obliga-tions set forth in these General Terms & Conditions , LHIND will be entitled to all rights, recourse and remedies available to it under applicable law, including without limitation, (a) equitable relief enjoining you from engaging in further breach; and (b) damages which LHIND and any LHIND Affiliates may suffer or incur as a direct or indirect result or consequence of any such breach, including without limitation, lost profits and other consequential damages. For purposes of these General Terms & Conditions , “LHIND Affiliates” means any entity which controls, is controlled by or under common control with LHIND.
1.10 Modification, Limitation and Discontinuance of the Service
LHIND reserves the right to suspend or discontinue your access to myIDgo and the Services, and to limit your access to, modify, change or discontinue any aspect of the Services at any time, with or without cause and for any reason, with or without notice.
In addition, LHIND and its Third Party Providers may cancel any travel or service reservations associated with your name, e-mail address or account, and close any associated accounts, if your account or bookings show any signs of fraud, abuse or suspicious activity. In any such event, you agree that LHIND will not be liable to you or to any third party for any damages or harm you may suffer or incur as a result of its conduct in doing so.
1.11 Dispute resolution
a) The EU Commission has provided a platform for online dispute resolution. This platform can be reached under the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
b) LHIND is neither willing nor obliged to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.
Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your doctor for cur-rent recommendations before you depart. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medi-cation, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip.
1.13 Pricing and Other Information
You acknowledge that some of the information published through myIDgo, including without limi-tation, User Submissions, may include errors or inaccuracies, including inaccurate pricing infor-mation, and that LHIND and its Third Party Providers do not guaranty the accuracy of such in-formation, and further disclaim all liability for inaccuracies relating to the information and descrip-tions of the hotels, cars and other services, products and amenities displayed on or through myIDgo (including without limitation, the pricing, photographs, lists of hotel amenities and general product descriptions).
In addition, LHIND expressly reserves the right, on behalf of itself and its Third Party Providers, to correct any pricing errors and/or pending reservations made under an inaccurate price. In such event, LHIND or its Third Party Providers may offer you the right to keep your pending reservation at the correct price or to cancel your reservation without penalty.
1.14 Additional provisions
You acknowledge that some Third Party Providers may require you to (a) present them with a credit card upon check-in to cover additional fees or charges that you may incur, and that any such deposit is in addition to any payments you may make to such third party provider; and (b) sign their liability waiver as a condition to their willingness to provide you with any service, prod-uct or amenity they may offer.
1.15 Third Party Providers & Limitation of Liability

As such, LHIND, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, eq-uity holders, employees, and representatives (collectively, “LHIND Representatives”) are not lia-ble in any way for any personal injuries, death, property damage or other damages or expenses, arising from or in connection with any errors or omissions, breaches of representations or warran-ties, or other acts on the part of any such Third Party Providers, or their employees, agents or rep-resentatives of any kind.

YOUR USE OF MYIDGO AND ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND AMENI-TIES YOU MAY OBTAIN THROUGH YOUR USE OF MYIDGO AND/OR THE SER-VICES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
IN NO EVENT SHOULD LHIND’S PUBLICATION OF HYPERLINKS TO THIRD PAR-TY WEBSITES ON MYIDGO BE CONSTRUED AS AN ENDORSEMENT OR RECOM-MENDATION BY LHIND OF THE THIRD PARTY WEBSITES OR ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THAT MAY BE OFFERED THROUGH ANY SUCH WEBSITES. NOR SHALL LHIND OR ANY LHIND REPRESENTATIVES HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR THE QUALITY, CONTENT, NATURE OR RELIABILITY OF ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY WEB SITES ACCESSIBLE BY LINKS FROM MYIDGO.
