1. SERVICES PROVIDED BY GETDUCKS.COM
GetDucks.com, a privately-held brand of Ramsey Russell, LLC, acts solely as the booking agent for outfitters, guides, transportation providers, lodges and any other service providers in connection with the client’s trip. Other than serving as booking agent, GetDucks.com is not providing any services itself, and has no interest in or control over the actions of these entities. GetDucks.com strives to investigate fully every service provider and to ensure that it only utilizes the highest quality service providers. However, the client acknowledges and agrees that the availability of services offered by providers and the financial stability of the service providers cannot be guaranteed by GetDucks.com. Likewise, GetDucks.com cannot guarantee either the quality or quantity of game bagged, or the quality of the weather for the trip. GetDucks.com continually strives to provide the greatest opportunity to the best destinations with the most reputable service providers it can find in order to offer an exceptional hunting experience, nothing less.
2. COVENANT NOT TO SUE
The client agrees, individually and on the behalf of any personal representatives, heirs or next of kin to waive, release, and covenants not to sue GetDucks.com or its affiliates for any and all claims for damages in tort, contract, or otherwise, including but not limited to personal injury and financial loss arising from the negligence or other acts or omissions of any service provider utilized during the client’s trip.

Deposits cannot be refunded in part or in whole, nor can they generally be applied towards another hunt destination. In the instance that borders are open and it is possible for client to redeem hunt, whether with or without vaccination requirements, and whether with or without a negative test requirements to re-enter the United States, clients shall either redeem their hunt during their scheduled timeframe or forfeit all monies paid. If the destination country requires a negative test for entry and the client cannot travel due to testing positive, all monies will be applied without refund to a future date at the reserved destination inasmuch as client provides proof of positive test results, less and except any expenses already incurred by operator preceding the hunt (licenses, permits, etc.).
