Legalese: While Swoop wants to be the airline you fly with because of our great prices and irreverent attitude, we still need to let you know about the legalities. This document sets out those terms and conditions (the "Agreement") under which Swoop ("we", "us", "our") allow you ("you", "your") to use our website ("Website"), whether you do so just to find out about us and our services or to carry out booking of travel services and other activities using the Website.

Many of the words and phrases in this Agreement have specific meanings so we have provided those for you to read:
Who you are makes a difference in how this Agreement affects you. You may visit or use the Website in different roles at different times as follows
Visitor - a Visitor is anyone who visits the publicly available parts of our Website but who is not asked to click "accept". Visitors can access information from the Website's publicly available areas without telling us anything about themselves, but by using the Website Visitors still accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Visitors cannot access areas of the Website requiring a password, cannot book travel services, and cannot access the Data.
Passenger - A Passenger is an individual traveling with Swoop, obtaining travel services from or through Swoop or any other entity, whether in connection with travel services from or through Swoop or otherwise. "Passengers" include individual Agents who book flights for themselves and also include the individuals with respect to whom an Agent makes travel arrangements. A Passenger may book their services personally and/or directly, or they may use an Agent to do so. A Passenger may access the Website as a Visitor on a different occasion without logging in. "Passenger" includes a client of a travel agent and an employee or other person with respect to whom an Agent makes travel arrangements. "Passenger" also includes any person who has an account with Swoop, or who is accessing the Website to view Data or other information about themselves or another individual on whose behalf they are authorized to act, such other information including travel itineraries.
Agent - An Agent is any person who books travel services on behalf of another individual in any manner. You are an Agent if you fit within any of the following:
You are booking travel services on behalf of a friend, parent, child, spouse or other family member (but with respect to bookings you make for yourself, you are a Passenger); or
You are a travel agent, or you are an employee, officer, director, contractor or agent of a travel agent (unless you are an agent but booking your own arrangements, in which case you are a Passenger); or
Please note that Swoop collects and archives your IP address to use and disclose for identification and legal purposes in the event of unauthorized use or misuse of a credit or payment card fraud related to an online booking.
"act on behalf of", or similar words, means to enter into contracts or agreements in the name of or on behalf of a Passenger, which must be with their knowledge, consent and authority (unless they are a minor and you are their parent or guardian and have the legal right to do so on their behalf), and includes making travel arrangements or bookings, contracting for the supply of wares or services and supplying personal information of a Passenger or other individual in connection with doing so.
The "Data" means any and all records, documents, data and information related to travel arrangements and bookings for Passengers, including without limitation information with respect to all travel arrangements, itineraries and schedules, contact persons, holders of credit or debit cards, dates and times of flight arrival, airlines and flight numbers, arrival and departure dates and times, hotel, lodging, accommodation bookings and schedules, Personal Information related to Passengers and persons accompanying Passengers, bookings on other carriers, including airlines, buslines, limousines, chauffeurs, tour operators and similar service providers, rental car bookings, and related matters.
"Personal Information" means all information about a Passenger, about you, or about any other identifiable individual, including, without limitation, name, date of birth, age, gender, travel arrangements, financial information, credit or debit card and billing information, health information, allergies, food preferences, seating preferences, height, weight, consumer type and any and all other information related to or that can be connected with an identifiable individual.
Reservations for persons who may have special needs require extra qualifying information for Swoop to effectively meet our Passengers' needs. Please contact us to make a reservation of this nature. Swoop reserves the right, without liability, to cancel any reservation made through our website for a person with special needs or disabilities, if, in Swoop's sole discretion, reasonable accommodation in accordance with Swoop guidelines on the transportation of such Passengers, cannot be provided in respect of the reservation made.
