If you choose to register or subscribe for any such Services or related features, you agree to provide accurate information about yourself and to update such information where necessary to ensure it is kept accurate and complete.

None of the material contained on GOT may be reverse-engineered, disassembled, decompiled, transcribed, translated into any language or computer language, resold, redistributed or retransmitted (except for the creation and transmission of a hypertext link to GOT, as specified below in “5. Linking to GOT”), in any form or by any means, without the prior written consent of GOT.

You may not use GOT or its Services in a manner that infringes our rights or that has not been authorized by us.

You agree not to post, transmit, link to or otherwise distribute any comments or materials which (a) are unlawful, libelous, defamatory, abusive, offensive or pornographic, (b) give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate law, (c) violate, plagiarize or infringe the rights of third parties including, without limitation, copyright, trademark, patent, privacy rights or any other proprietary right, (d) contain a virus or other harmful component, or (e) constitute or contain false or misleading information.

We reserve the right not to publish comments, content or material that we, in our discretion, deem inappropriate. We also reserve the right to remove any such content from GOT at any time for any reason.

7.  Third Party Links and Advertisements

GOT contains links to websites offered by third parties other than GOT (for example, links to hotels, cruises, airlines, tours, museums,  attractions, contributors, advertisers and sponsors). GOT does not control these websites and is not responsible for their content.

Some links may be affiliate or referral links. GOT may earn a fee or small percentage of the sale if you make a purchase through our affiliate links, or we may earn a bonus from your registration through any referral links. Rest assured, these links will always be disclosed and presented honestly.

In some cases, advertisers and travel brands may sponsor posts and pay for links, but a reasonable effort will always be made to clearly identify sponsored posts and links.

GOT also accepts various other forms of paid advertising (for example, display and banner ads).

Unless otherwise specifically stated, GOT does not endorse any product or service or make any representation regarding the availability, reliability, quality, performance or suitability of any products or services featured in any links, sponsored posts or advertisements appearing on GOT. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link, sponsored post or advertisement on GOT, you must take action with that sponsor or advertiser to resolve any complaints and not with us or GOT.

For more, see our Disclosure policy.
