Sweepstakes, Contests & Liability
By submitting an entry to win a contest or prize from Escapemaker.com or purchasing or booking a travel package, you release Escapemaker.com and its vendors and/or donators of this prize from any liability should any losses occur before, after, in transit to and from, during or relating to the prize redemption including but not limited to thefts, injuries, deaths, or acts of God. Winner will forfeit prize if not redeemed according to specific contest rules and within 6 months of winning notification. Must be at least 21 years old to enter and to win prize. You give EscapeMaker your permission to use your likeness and any social media photos posted on your public account tagged with @ or #EscapeMaker to be used in connection with the prize or EscapeMaker promotion.
Escapemaker’s database of business listings is just that, a database. Since we provide a free listing to any tourism business that requests one, we are not able to verify the quality and conditions of these businesses. Therefore a business listed in our database is by no means endorsed or recommended and we are not responsible for any loss or damage that may occur as a result of patronizing these businesses. In the case of lodging, we strongly recommend you check with the state hotel/motel association or bed and breakfast association which monitors accredited lodgings and quality standards before making a reservation. For a list of associations, see “about us”.
