Liability release

The role that the Aruba Tourism Authority (the “A.T.A.”) plays in the ‘One Happy Workation’ program (the “Program”) is strictly that of an intermediary between visitors and the hotels/resorts that are involved with the Program. All products under the Program are put together and offered by participating hotels/resorts and not the A.T.A. and/or Aruba. The A.T.A. website contains links to websites of participating hotels/resorts but these links are provided merely for your convenience. On these linked third-party websites i.e. information on, amongst others, the different products offered by the hotels/resorts as part of the Program can be found. By clicking a link I accept that neither the A.T.A. nor Aruba assumes responsibility and/or liability for information, communication, and/or products, whether or not related with the Program, available on such websites. Additionally I accept that in the unlikely event of a dispute exclusively Aruban law shall apply and that in such event only the Aruban Courts shall have jurisdiction.
