11. Promotions and Discounts
Skioo reserves the right to offer promotional offers or discounts to the Client as a means of facilitating his/her access to the ski resorts.
To provide tailored service offerings, Skioo reserves the right to limit promotional offers or discounts to specific Clients. Unless specifically stated otherwise, promotions cannot be accumulated and cannot be paid out in cash.
Clients are requested to pay close attention to the chronological order of promo codes they intend to use. The first promo code added to the account will be the first that can be used.
The payment process on the Service can be securely undertaken through several payment methods, which are accepted by Datatrans and/or Ogone, our payment service providers who specialize in providing secure e-commerce payment solutions.
When a transaction occurs, the Client’s credit card details are automatically sent to the server(s) and bank(s). Datatrans and/or Ogone register all credit card details in compliance with the “Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard PCI-DSS” regulations. All credit card details are encrypted and kept secured by Datatrans/Ogone; Skioo has no access to them.
An order is only validated when the banking payment institutions in question accept the payment. In case of a refusal the order will be automatically canceled and the Client will be notified by email. Additionally, Skioo reserves the right to refuse any order from a Client with pending disputes.
When a payment is made through either the ‘Automatic payment’ or the ‘Prepay’ payment method, the Client acknowledges to have read Skioo’s Terms and expressly accepts them without any reservation.
Both the ‘Automatic payment’ and the ‘Prepay’ payment method require the Client to register one or more keycard in his/her Skioo account. Every keycard holder can benefit from the Service, as long as his/her identity matches the one indicated in his/her Skioo profile. In the event of incorrect or misleading Client profile information, Skioo reserves the right to immediately terminate the Client’s account and thus block his/her access to the ski slopes.
14. Order Confirmation
Once a payment is made and after it has been accepted by Datatrans/Ogone, a confirmation email detailing the order is sent to the Client. Every confirmation email includes a specific order confirmation number.
15. Access to Partner Ski Stations
Once an ‘Automatic payment’ or ‘Prepay’ payment is made via Skioo and the confirmation email is sent, the Client is able to access the slopes of his/her resort of choice. He/she will need to carry his/her keycard and go through the resort’s access control portal to access the slopes.
Once the user has gone through the resort’s lift gate, the Skioo service becomes irrevocable. The service is also irrevocable in the case of exceptional situations such as disease, accident, closure of slopes or lifts, and/or bad weather conditions.

Skioo assumes no liability for any malfunctions attributable to third-party software, regardless of whether the software is integrated to the Solution or supplied separately. Be it foreseeable or not, Skioo accepts no liability for any type of damage that can arise from the use of its Service, nor any partial or total inability to use it, including lost profit or lost opportunities.
Finally, Skioo is unable to control the content on the websites that it redirects to via hyperlinks on its Solution. It is therefore not responsible of the content on these websites.
