As a user, you access Wonders (e.g. games or tours) via the Wilder Wander App on your phone. The Wonders on the Wilder Wander App are accessible via a QR code, geographical search or by other means. Once you complete a Wonder, you will have the option to publish your results and content generated (e.g. photographs) on the Wilder Wander portal (https://wilderwander.com). If you agree to publish them, then the content will be visible to the public if Wilder Wander deems it suitable.

You have the option to not publish your results/content, but instead to receive them via email so that you can review content at a later time (e.g. photographs). You need to input your email address in order to receive this content by email. You retain the IP on your content and can request the deletion of content at any time.

Should a court of competent jurisdiction determine that the limitation above is not legally valid, to the extent permitted by law, the total liability of Wilder Wander to you for any claim under this agreement or arising out of our services, including for implied warranties, is limited to the amount you paid us for our services or €50, whichever is less.
