We reserve the right to modify the Services and these Terms at any time. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site and/or provide you notice of the modification by email. Changes to the Terms will be effective at the time of posting.
The Site and Services are intended solely for persons who are 18 or older. Any access to or use of the Site or Services by anyone under 18 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Site or Services you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older.
Our Site is designed to offer wellness retreats and other services, as well as accept payments for such services. KOOLKUNA IS NOT A TRAVEL AGENT, TRAVEL BOOKING SERVICE, OR PROVIDER OF ANY TRAVEL RELATED ACTIVITIES. Unless explicitly specified on the Site, Koolkuna’s responsibilities are limited to: (i) facilitating the availability of the Site and Services and (ii) processing payments our hosted events, retreats and other services offered on the Site.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SITE AND SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE REGISTRATIONS TO EVENTS OR OTHER SITE-SPECIFIC SERVICES AND NOT TO BOOK TRAVEL. EVEN IF KOOLKUNA POSTS LINKS TO TRAVEL-RELATED SERVICES, KOOLKUNA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO TRAVEL IN ORDER FOR REGISTRANTS TO ATTEND RETREATS OR OTHER EVENTS. ACCORDINGLY, ANY RETREATS OR OTHER EVENT BOOKINGS WILL BE MADE AT THE REGISTRANT’S OWN RISK.
In order to access certain features of the Site, and to return to an event registration, you may be offered the ability to create an account. Koolkuna reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Koolkuna account if you create more than one (1) Koolkuna Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be fraudulent or otherwise in violation of these Terms.
You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party.
If you register for a retreat or other event and need to cancel, the following terms apply to your refund status based on the number of days the cancelation occurs in advance of the event:
- 15 to 30 days before the event date: 80% refund.
- 8 to 14 days before the event date: 70% refund.
- 4 to 7 days before the event date: 25% refund.
- 3 days or less before the event date: No refund will be issued.
Koolkuna reserves the right to modify or terminate this Refund Policy, at any time, in its sole discretion, and without prior notice. If Koolkuna modifies this Refund Policy, then we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification. Koolkuna will continue to process claims for existing events related to registrations made prior to the effective date of the modification under the terms of the existing policy.
We reserve the right to cancel or re-schedule any retreat per operating requirements or circumstances beyond our control. If we cancel the event any time before the retreat, Koolkuna’s only liability will be to refund the amount it has received for the retreat. We will try to re-book the same or similar event. PLEASE NOTE THAT IN THE EVENT OF A CANCELATION, KOOLKUNA IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY TRAVEL-RELATED PENALTIES INCURRED OR ANY OTHER TRAVEL-RELATED ARRANGEMENTS INCLUDING AIRLINE TICKETS PURCHASED TO ATTEND AN EVENT.
Koolkuna recommends that you purchase a travel protection plan to help protect you and your travel investment against the unexpected.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL KOOLKUNA’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS POLICY EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE EVENT REGISTRATION COST COLLECTED BY KOOLKUNA FROM THE REGISTRANT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY USING THE SITE, OR REGISTERING FOR AN EVENT, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE POLICY TERMS.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without effect given to California’s conflict-of-law provisions. You and Koolkuna agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in San Francisco County, San Francisco, California or a United States District Court, Northern District of California located in San Francisco, California for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
Dispute Resolution — Arbitration
If you reside in the United States, you and Koolkuna agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Koolkuna are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney-general action, or any other representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Koolkuna otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
The failure of Koolkuna to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Koolkuna. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
