5. Special Requests
Should you have any special requests, you must advise the Service Provider at the time of the booking and clearly note it on booking. We cannot guarantee that your special request will be fulfilled. Failure to meet any special request does not signify a breach of contract.

The Aviation Consumer Protection Division of the Federal Department of Transportation is responsible for issues relating to airline consumer travel. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act (US), consumers that purchase airline tickets from an airline that subsequently fails are entitled to a refund or credit from the credit card issuer. Under the USA Aviation and Transportation Security Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-71, 19 November 2001) the Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act of 2003 (P.L. 108-176, 12 December 2003), and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (8 December 2004) other airlines based in the USA are required to provide transportation to holders of tickets on other USA-based airlines that have ceased operations due to insolvency or bankruptcy, "to the extent practicable", provided that the passenger makes arrangements with another airline within 60 days of the shutdown of the ticketed airline. The USA Department of Transportation has interpreted this in a series of guidance letters (administrative rulings) to mean that other USA-based airlines flying the exact same route are required to honor tickets of a USA-based airline that shut down, on a space-available (standby) basis, for no more than US$25 per person per flight, one-way.
· If any of these Terms and Conditions is in invalid or unenforceable, it will be struck out, and the remaining terms will remain in force.

Travelers and Recipients are prohibited from using or displaying (either directly or indirectly), and agree not to use, display, or reference (directly or indirectly), any URL, trade name, trademark, logo, or branding of GWGT or GWGT travel suppliers in any manner whatsoever (including, without limitation, in any meta-tags, search engine advertising, marketing or optimization, any other online or offline marketing or advertising, press releases, etc.) without the express, written permission of GWGT.

TERMINATION; TERMINATION OBLIGATIONS
GWGT in its sole discretion and without cause may terminate this Proceeds-Sharing Program immediately. The rights and remedies provided in these Program Terms are not exclusive and are in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law or these Program Terms.
Upon termination or expiration of these Program Terms for any reason, GWGT reserves the right to withhold Recipient's final remittance of Contributions for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid.
Inability to Receive Contributions. If circumstances beyond the control of Go With God Travel prevent the conveyance, submission or transfer of Contribution to Recipient, including but not limited to postal delay or error, inability of Recipient to receive mail, or any other reason, the costs involved in Contribution resubmission, including but not limited to postal charges, cancelled check charges, and all other processing charges, shall be deducted from the Contribution owed to the Recipient. No resubmission of Contribution shall be made on checks that have been cashed or deposited. In the case of postal or check fraud, Recipient’s remedy lies with the relevant postal service, financial institution, or the Recipient’s attorney. GWGT disclaims any and all liability from any assistance or costs involved in the investigation into and/or resolution of such matters.
Effect of Economic Conditions. In the event GWGT deems, in GWGT’s sole discretion, that military or terrorist action or extraordinary political, economic, or other conditions or occurrences beyond GWGT’s control significantly impact the travel industry or GWGT’s businesses, GWGT may, at any time, suspend performance (in part or whole) of any or all of the terms and conditions of these Program Terms, suspend Contributions due hereunder (in part or whole) or terminate the Program (in part or whole), at GWGT’s sole discretion.
Contributions. In accordance with and subject to all conditions set forth in these Program Terms, GWGT shall pay Recipients Contributions, calculated as a specific Portion of GWGT Proceeds. For the avoidance of doubt, Contributions will only be paid on Consumed Transactions.
GWGT will pay a Recipient of the Traveler’s choosing thirty three percent (33%) of the Proceeds received as a result of a Consumed Transaction, unless a different percentage is agreed to by GWGT in writing.
It should be noted that, in most circumstances, Go With God Travel does not receive commission payments for flight-only bookings. As a result, this proceeds-sharing program shall not apply to flight-only bookings.
In no event shall Proceeds include (i) the price due or payable by GWGT to one or more suppliers or intermediaries; (ii) any payments for claims, offsets, cancellations, refunds, rebates, customer service allowances, retroactive price adjustments, returns, and other deductions; (iii) fraudulent or prohibited transactions, including, but not limited to, any transaction based on a reservation that is speculative, duplicative or fictitious; or (iv) any sales, excise, use, goods and services, harmonized, withholding, value-added or other similar taxes.
Tax Forms. As an entity required to file information returns with the IRS, Red Compass, LLC must obtain the correct TIN (tax identification number) of all recipients to which we pay Contributions. This may be in the form of a Social Security number for individuals, or an Employee Identification number for organizations. An IRS form W-9, also known as "Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification" is used by a U.S.-based individual or entity, or a resident alien to verify his or her taxpayer identification number (TIN). If you are defined as a "foreign person" for federal tax purposes, the IRS requires you to use the appropriate W-8BEN form or provide a signed Certification of No U.S. Activities, depending on which form is applicable. Prior to receiving all Contributions, the Recipient must complete and return to Go With God Travel the appropriate tax form. GWGT shall make all reasonable efforts to collect such forms from designated recipients, but shall be under no obligation to the Traveler in the event that a Recipient refuses or is unable to provide GWGT the applicable form. Recipients shall be solely responsible for any and all taxes and/or other obligations associated with the receipt of Commissions hereunder.
Negative Balances. GWGT may apply a negative balance owed to a Recipient on future Contributions in an amount equal to a Contribution previously submitted to Recipient in circumstances of: (i) product/service returns; (ii) duplicate entry or other clear error; (iii) retraction of commission(s) previously paid to GWGT by service provider on which Recipient received a Contribution; (iv) a Traveler’s failure to comply with these Program Terms; or (v) invalid Transactions. GWGT may withhold future Contributions due to Recipient and credit such amounts payable towards offsetting or recouping any Contribution amounts paid in error by GWGT on prior Transactions.
Recipient must cooperate fully, and provide GWGT with all reasonable assistance as requested by GWGT, in connection with any investigation by GWGT into suspected Transaction fraud.
Facilitating Payment of Contributions. GWGT shall have no obligation to make payment of any Contributions resulting from Transactions for which GWGT has not received payment from the relevant travel suppliers of all monies due to GWGT.
Tax Status and Obligations. GWGT is not obligated to and shall not provide Recipient with tax and/or legal advice. GWGT undertakes no duty to investigate or research Recipient’s tax status and/or obligations, and such research and investigation is solely Recipient’s responsibility. Recipient is obligated to independently assess and comply with all relevant tax and legal requirements and shall be responsible for any and all taxes, duties and impositions imposed on Recipient resulting from the receipt of Contributions, including interest and penalties thereon and additions thereto.
All Recipients who receive payouts totaling more than $600 during the course of the year shall be issued an IRS Form 1099 or 1042, where appropriate.
