Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Service may incorporate functions that will inhibit Customer from exceeding the scope of this license.
3.2. No Implied License. Except for the limited rights and licenses expressly granted hereunder, no other license is granted, no other use is permitted, and Mondee (and its licensors) shall retain all right, title and interest in and to the Platform (including all intellectual property and proprietary rights embodied therein). Customer shall not take any action inconsistent with such rights.
3.3. Restrictions.

The cost of hosting services is included in the Subscription Fees as set forth on the Order Form.
4. Booking Services.
4.1 Booking. Through the Platform, Mondee advertises, markets, promotes, offers and sells various travel related products on behalf of numerous transport, accommodation and entertainment service providers, including, but not limited to airlines, hotels, car rental companies, vacation rentals, ticket & attraction providers, and cruise line operators (each, a “Travel Service Provider”). Mondee does not own, operate, manage or control these independent Travel Service Providers and is not liable for their acts or omissions. By using the Platform, Users enter into a binding contractual relationship with Travel Service Provider(s) when making a reservation. Once a reservation has been made, Mondee acts as solely an intermediary between User and the Travel Service Provider(s); Mondee will transmit the details of User’s reservation to the applicable Travel Service Provider and send User an email confirmation detailing the reservation on behalf of the Travel Service Provider. All bookings are subject to the terms & conditions, and limitations of liability imposed by the Travel Service Provider(s) some of which exclude liability in respect of death, personal injury, delay and loss or damage to baggage. If for any reason, any Travel Service Provider is unable to provide the services for which a User has contracted, the User and Customer’s remedy lies against the Travel Service Provider, and not against Mondee; Customer and its Users understand that their respective legal recourse is against the specific Travel Service Provider and not Mondee.
The offerings disclosed on the Platform are provided by Travel Service Providers; Travel Service Providers are responsible for updating all rates, prices, fees, availability, travel policies, terms & conditions, and other information displayed through the Platform. Mondee does not verify whether this information is accurate or complete and will not be held responsible for any inaccurate, misleading or false information provided by Travel Service Provider(s). Mondee does not warrant or guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information provided on the Platform. Under no circumstances will Mondee be liable for any loss or direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages caused by reliance on this information. The Platform does not recommend or endorse the quality, service level, type or description of any Travel Service Provider or its offerings, unless we specifically state otherwise.
4.1.1 Booking Limitations. Users may only use the Platform to make legitimate reservations or purchases and shall not use the Platform for any other purposes, including without limitation, to provide travel agency services, to make any false or fraudulent reservation(s) or any reservation in anticipation of demand. Users will not make reservations in the name of a fictitious person. Users will not use any device, software or routine that would interfere or be reasonably expected to interfere with the normal operation of the Platform. Users will not take any action that imposes a burden or load on our infrastructure that Mondee deems in its sole discretion to be unreasonable or disproportionate to the benefits we obtain from such User’s use of the Platform.
4.1.2 Price Match Guarantee. If another online booking tool beats our listed price, Mondee matches the price and gives $5 more off (the “Price Match Guarantee”) per the rules below:
The Price Match Guarantee offer is applicable only if the cheaper airfare matches exactly each and every element present in itinerary booked with us, which includes exact date and time of travel, destination name, name of the airline, class of service, specific carrier or provider (including same class of service and refund policy), fare, and other details are the same as the itinerary User booked with us and still available for booking online. Mondee’s Price Match Guarantee offer holds good for the similar product available through another authentic website only. Users may not be eligible for refund claim if bookings are done through other websites where the carrier booking details are unknown until after purchase. Additionally, Users must fulfill all the criteria as mentioned by the lower price offer (if any), including, without limitation, residency, regional and age-related requirements. The interpretation given by Mondee to these rules is final and binding.
4.2 Baggage Fees and Taxes. Baggage allowance and restrictions will apply on all airlines. These will vary, and travelers should contact the applicable airline for the specific restrictions. Some airlines may charge fees for checked baggage. Please note that additional airport fees and government taxes may not be included in ticket prices, these are collected at destination.
4.3 Travel & Expense – Fees and Payment. Mondee has either permitted the User or Customer to pay for bookings and reservations by credit card in accordance with the Order Form. In addition to the Subscription Fees agreed to by the Customer and Mondee, the Customer and User agree that Mondee may charge additional fees including: cancellation, change, exchange, mileage, after hours, and card service fees. The User acknowledges that by making the payment for the booking that the User has accepted the price quoted by Mondee.
4.4 Booking Conditions. Prices quoted by Mondee via the Services are subject to change and will not be confirmed until booking is ticketed by Mondee and a confirmation email is sent. Mondee always tries to maximize the savings on airfares it sells on behalf of airlines.
4.5 Passport and Visas. All individuals travelling internationally must be in possession of a valid passport. Please check that each traveler’s passport is valid for 6 months or longer than the intended travel time. It is each traveler’s responsibility to ensure that they have valid travel documentation, including but not limited to passports and visas, which meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities at every departure point and destination. Each traveler is responsible for confirming with the United States Department of State or representative government agency of the country to which such traveler is traveling to confirm the requirements for visas and/or other requirements for admission to the destination. A government issued ID is required for travel within the USA, however depending on the State of departure or arrival, a passport may be required instead of a driver’s license.
4.6 Refunds & Cancellation. Mondee charges $35.00 per airline ticket for exchanges (outside of 24 hours from the time of booking); this is in addition to the airlines’ exchange fees (the airline rules will be quoted to the customer before initiating an exchange). Mondee will void a ticket canceled within 24 hours from time of booking, but will retain the original ticketing fee. Any amendment or any changes to a reservation (date change, rerouting) constitutes a cancellation. If, after a booking has been confirmed, a User wishes to cancel or change their booking, Mondee will make a commercially reasonable effort to satisfy the User’s request provided written notice is received by Mondee. A cancellation will take effect from the date that the written notice is received by Mondee. The applicable Travel Service Provider’s policy will apply with regard to refunds and cancellations of bookings and reservations. Carefully read such policies prior to booking or making any reservations.
In all cases, where a User’s booking involves a special fee or charges levied by an airline, hotel operator or any other Travel Services Provider, the applicable User will be responsible for all cancellation charges levied by the airline, hotel operator or any other Travel Service Providers. Cancellations incur charges imposed by the airline or tour operator which can be up to 100% of the total fare purchased. Please note that airline/wholesaler refunds can take up to two (2) billing cycles and not all taxes are refundable. Airline tickets are non-refundable once travel has commenced. Where Mondee incurs any liability for a cancellation fee or charge for any cancelled booking, Customer agrees to reimburse Mondee for the amount of that fee or charged. Refunds from suppliers will be made only after Mondee has received the money from those sources (supplier rules and restrictions will apply).
4.7 Credit Card Transactions. If Mondee incurs any costs, including attorneys’ fees, to recover any payments charged back by a credit card company, Customer agrees that it will be liable for these costs. If the credit card is declined, Customer guarantees that it will settle any amounts owing to Mondee immediately.
4.8 Travel Protections. For each traveler’s protection, Mondee encourages the purchase of trip cancellation and travel accident protection. No representation or description of the protection made by Mondee to a User or traveler constitutes a binding assurance or promise about the protection. Mondee is not an insurance company and has no responsibility for the submission, payment or adjustment of any insurance claims. Any claims that may fall under the relevant travel protection policy must be submitted to the third-party insurance company identified in the policy.
4.9 Health and Special Requirements. It is each traveler’s responsibility to ensure they are aware of any health requirements and restrictions for travel destinations and to ensure that traveler(s) qualify for travel and carry all necessary vaccination documentation.
5. Data & Security.
5.1. License to Customer Data. Customer grants Mondee a worldwide, nonexclusive, royalty free license to use, copy, access, process, reproduce, perform, display, modify, distribute and transmit the Customer Data on the Platform and in connection with providing the Services to Customer; this includes the right to disclose Customer Data to third party travel providers when necessary to complete a User’s travel booking.
5.2. Data Management. Customer possesses and retains all right, title and interest to Customer Data, and Mondee’s use and possession thereof is solely on Customer’s behalf. Unless it receives Customer’s prior written consent, Mondee shall not access, process, or otherwise use Customer Data other than as necessary to facilitate the Services. Upon termination of this Agreement, Mondee will purge all Customer Data.
5.3. Data Security. Mondee shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized exposure or disclosure of Customer Data. In addition, and without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, Mondee shall maintain, implement and comply with a written information security policy that requires commercially reasonable policies and procedures to ensure compliance with this Section 5.3.
5.4. Processing of Customer Data governed by EU laws. Customer acknowledges and agrees that it may be necessary for Customer to provide access or transfer to Mondee in the United States Personal Data governed by the local laws implementing the European Union Data Privacy Directive (95/46/EC) and the General Data Protection Regulation (“EU Privacy Laws”) in order for the data to be included in the Service and for the Customer to receive the services. To the extent that Mondee shall process, as such term is understood under the EU Privacy Laws, any Personal Data governed by EU Privacy Laws, the parties agree that (a) Mondee shall be the “data processor” and the Customer the “data controller”, as such terms are understood under the EU Privacy Laws, and (b) Customer shall be solely responsible for obtaining legally compliant consents permitting the processing by Mondee of the Customer Data in the United States; alternatively, the parties will enter into appropriate controller-to-processor Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission.
5.4.1. Subprocessors of Personal Data governed by EU laws. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Mondee may use contracted processors (“Subprocessors”) engaged by Mondee to process Personal Data. Mondee shall be responsible for the acts and omissions of Subprocessors to the same extent it would be responsible if Mondee was performing the services of each Subprocessor directly under the terms of this Agreement. The names and locations of all current Subprocessors used for the processing of personal data within Customer Data (as defined by EU Privacy laws) under this Agreement is available to Customer upon written request to Mondee.
6. Confidentiality. Each party agrees that all code, inventions, algorithms, know-how and ideas and all other business, personally-identifiable information and technical information obtained from the other party is the confidential property of the disclosing party (“Confidential Information” of the disclosing party). Except as expressly set forth herein (including, for Mondee, as required to provide the Services), during the Subscription Period and after any termination hereof, the receiving party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information of the disclosing party and shall similarly bind its employees and independent contractors in writing. Confidential Information shall not include information the receiving party can document: (a) is or has become readily publicly available without restriction through no fault of the receiving party or its employees or agents, (b) is received without restriction from a third party lawfully in possession of such information and lawfully empowered to disclose such information, (c) was rightfully in the possession of the receiving party without restriction prior to its disclosure by the other party, or (d) was independently developed by employees or consultants of the receiving party without use of the Confidential Information. If required by law, the receiving party may disclose Confidential Information of the disclosing party solely to the extent of such requirement, but will give adequate prior notice of such disclosure to the disclosing party to permit the disclosing party to intervene and to request protective orders or other confidential treatment therefor. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are the Confidential Information of both parties, provided that each party may disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement on a confidential basis to its advisors, legal counsel, prospective investors and/or acquirers. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement, all of the Confidential Information (including any copies) will be returned to the disclosing party or destroyed, and the receiving party will make no further use of such materials; notwithstanding the foregoing, all personally-identifiable information will be destroyed. Money damages will not be an adequate remedy if this Section 6 is breached and, therefore, either party may, in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, seek an injunction or other equitable relief against such breach or threatened breach without the necessity of posting any bond or surety. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Mondee may collect data with respect to and report on the aggregate response rate and other aggregate, anonymized measures of the Platform’s performance and Customer’s usage of the Platform, provided that Mondee will not disclose any information or data that identifies, or could reasonably be used to identify, Customer or any individual.
7.1 Fees. Customer shall pay to Mondee all Subscription Fees, in U.S. dollars in accordance with the terms set forth on the Order Form. Past due amounts shall bear a late payment charge, until received by Mondee, at the rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is less. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, all amounts paid hereunder are non-refundable.
7.2 Taxes. Subscription Fees are exclusive of federal, state, local and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings and similar assessments, other than taxes based on Mondee’s income. Mondee will invoice Customer for any taxes Mondee has an obligation to collect unless Customer provides a valid and applicable tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
8. Indemnification. Mondee will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Customer and its corporate Affiliates, directors, officers, employees, and agents (collectively, “Customer Indemnitees”), from and against any un-Affiliated third party claim, demand or action (collectively, “Claims”), and all damages, settlement amounts, penalties, costs and expenses, in each case that are paid or payable to un-Affiliated third parties resulting from such Claims, to the extent such Claim alleges that the Platform, when used by Customer in compliance with this Agreement, infringes, violates or misappropriates any intellectual property or proprietary right of any third party, provided that Mondee will not be obligated under this Section 8 to the extent any such infringement or violation arises from use of the Platform (a) in combination with technology or services not provided by Mondee, or (b) in violation of the license restrictions or scope of use permitted in this Agreement. Mondee’s obligations pursuant to this Section 8 are expressly conditioned on Customer Indemnitees providing Mondee with (y) prompt written notice of all Claims (provided that Mondee will only be relieved of its obligations pursuant to this Section 8 to the extent it is prejudiced by Customer Indemnitees’ failure to provide such notice), and (z) sole control over, and reasonable cooperation with, the defense and/or settlement of all Claims. Mondee will not agree to any settlement hereunder that admits any wrongdoing by Customer Indemnitees or otherwise imposes any material obligation on Customer Indemnitees (not entirely covered by an indemnification obligation hereunder) without Customer Indemnitees’ prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed.
9.1. Termination. This Agreement may be earlier terminated by either party (a) if the other party materially breaches a provision of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 30 days after receiving written notice of such breach from the other party (10 days in the case of nonpayment by Customer), or (b) immediately upon written notice, if the other party makes any assignment for the benefit of creditors, or a receiver, trustee in bankruptcy or similar officer is appointed to take charge of any or all of the other party’s property, or the other party seeks protection under any bankruptcy, receivership, trust deed, creditors arrangement, composition or comparable proceeding or such a proceeding is instituted against the other party and is not dismissed within 90 days, or the other party becomes insolvent or, without a successor, dissolves, liquidates or otherwise fails to operate in the ordinary course.
