3.  USE OF SITE. 
3.1 Pricing and Terms.  Captain is responsible for transmitting accurate charter information and pricing data, including all taxes, fees and charges (whether imposed by a governmental authority or Captain) that may apply to the charter services being offered for sale.  Captain shall also be responsible for maintaining and overseeing all of Captain's contracts with Anglers, and resolving all disputes between Captain and Anglers.  Captain will comply with applicable legal, regulatory, and other requirements related to the display, pricing and sale terms of its services and reservations.
3.2 Complaints.  If an Angler submits a complaint to Company or Captain, the Company and Captain shall in good faith attempt to resolve the complaint as soon as practicable following Company or Captain's receipt of the complaint.  Angler agrees to notify the Company within seventy-two (72) hours from the date and time of the fishing trip regarding any complaint relating to a reservation received in accordance with the notice procedures set forth in Section 15.9 below.
3.3 Confirmation of Reservation. Upon confirmation of a reservation, the Company shall timely transmit details of the reservation to Captain via e-mail to the email address most recently provided by Captain.  Once a reservation has been confirmed to proceed with charter completion, Captain is responsible for providing charter services as advertised to Angler, and shall be responsible for immediately communicating cancellations or delays to the Company.
3.4 Angler Support. After the Company has confirmed a reservation by an Angler, Company shall have primary responsibility for communications with Angler relating to reservations made with Captain through Company website and all other matters related to the transaction between Captain and Angler.  Captain shall have secondary responsibility and shall work with Company as appropriate to help resolve such matters. Company shall have primary responsibility, and shall work directly with Captain and/or Angler, to resolve issues that involve Company's technology or e-commerce service offerings.

4.  PAYMENTS.
4.1 Timing of Payments. Charges will not be made until 2 anglers book a trip. Once two spots are booked, each angler is required to pay a deposit to confirm the reservation. The balance of the ticket will be charged 24-48 hours before the scheduled date and time of the fishing trip. 
4.2  Fees. The Company's fee is included in the total cost of each ticket, and is variable depending on the spot which is booked.
4.3 Special Terms.  
(a) First Angler To Book.   The first Angler to book a particular fishing trip is NOT required to pay a deposit at time of booking.  If no one else joins him or her within 24 hours before the scheduled fishing trip date and time, the Angler is not required to pay and the trip will not be confirmed. If someone else does join him or her, he or she will be charged the delta of the Company's typical deposit fee at the time the second person books. The balance of the tickets will be charged 24-48 hours before the departure date to allow Anglers to attempt to lower the cost of the trip by sharing with others.  
(b) Anglers Two - Six.  The second through the sixth Angler shall be required to pay a standard deposit to reserve their spot. The balance amount will be based upon the total number of Anglers that book at least 24 hours before the fishing trip date and time.  These balances shall be authorized 24-48 hours before the fishing trip date and time, and charged 24 hours before the fishing trip date and time.  If the credit card is declined for any reason, the Company shall alert the Captain and remove the unpaid Angler from the fishing trip manifest.

5.  CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICIES.
5.1 Policy for Angler Cancellations.  
a. Over 30 Days
For cancellations made over 30 days from the departure date, the deposit is credited to the angler account for future purchases with Share A Fishing Charter for a period of (1) one year. The angler will not be charged for the remainder of the ticket price.
b. Under 30 Days
For cancellations made under 30 days from the departure date, the deposit is non-refundable and cannot be credited towards future purchases. The angler will not be charged for the remainder of the ticket price.
Cancellations within 48 hours of the trip date are charged the full value of the ticket price, are non-refundable and cannot be credited towards future purchases. Our low prices are a direct result of anglers sharing the cost with one another. To be fair to all anglers, we can not issue refunds as this would affect the cost for other committed anglers on board.
5.2 Policy for Captain Cancellations
If a trip is cancelled by the Captain due to weather conditions, the angler has 2 options:
Receive a credit of equivalent value for all charges on the day of cancellation. The credit can be used towards future purchases with Share A Fishing Charter.
Receive a refund of equivalent value for all charges on the day of cancellation, minus an 8% processing fee. The refund will be applied back to your method of payment.
If the Captain cancels a fishing trip for any reason other than weather, we will transfer the angler to another boat of comparable value whenever possible. If this is not possible, the 2 options above apply.
5.3 Mid-Charter Cancellations
If you are fishing and the Captain has to terminate the trip due to deteriorating weather conditions, Anglers will be responsible for 25% of the total ticket value for each hour that you are fishing.
If you return to the dock/marina due to certain elements (i.e., sea sickness), no refunds or credits are available in the event the Angler requests to be returned to shore. If you are affected by another angler, you can agree with the Captain to take the boat back out.  If you do not resume your fishing trip, you will only be charged 25% of the total ticket value for each hour that you were out fishing.
5.4 Chargebacks
(a) Angler covenants and agrees to refrain from initiating any chargebacks through his or her credit card company or its affiliates to dispute any credit card charges which are submitted by the Company in compliance with the terms of this Agreement.  In the event an Angler initiates a chargeback process in connection with a credit card charge submitted by the Company in compliance with the terms of this Agreement, Angler agrees to immediately withdraw such chargeback within two (2) business days after receiving written notice from the Company do so.

6.  INVOLVEMENT BY COMPANY.
Company only provides a medium for Anglers to retain the services of Captain for a fishing charter.  Company is not a party to any actual agreement or transaction between Anglers and Captains. As a result, Company has no control over the accuracy of the content or information provided or used by such Captains and Anglers. Captain is solely responsible for communicating its terms and conditions of travel to Anglers. In the event of a dispute between Captain and any Angler, Captain hereby releases and holds Company and its owners, managers, agents and employees harmless from claims, costs, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes in accordance with Section 15 below.

7.  TERM AND TERMINATION.
7.1 Term. Unless terminated by Company, this Agreement remains in full force and effect as long as the Angler continues to use Company's services.
