Fair and Open
Our Terms & Conditions
Made by divers
From the creator of this site to every author that contributes to Social Diving & the Diving Escape Game, all of us are active scuba divers. We know how you feel and understand any issues you might have because trust us...we have probably had them, too. We want to be transparent about what we do and how we earn money. Unfortunately, there are many people and organizations on the internet that do not wish well on others. Please read these disclaimers carefully.
Diving is a lot of fun! However, it is also considered an extreme sport. Before you go diving, make sure you are fit and able and have read our diving terms. There you can find our diving-specific disclaimer and terms of service.
A few things though: We expect a sufficient certification level and experience from every diver before taking part in any scuba diving-related activities. We reserve the right to require a check-dive from every diver we don’t know yet or those who only have a small number of logged dives.
This is not a way to be mean to you (!) but we feel it is important that everyone who goes diving with us can do so without pressure or fear. You, and anyone who comes along.
We list updated prices for all our services and courses to the best of our abilities. However, mistakes can happen. It has never happened before, however, if the prices on this site and the actual ones do not match, our price list holds precedence over anything stated on these pages.
In case there is an obvious mistake on our part we will cancel your order or purchase. If you want to be on the safe side, contact us and inquire about any potential changes to our pricing.
First off: We test or use everything we review ourselves! We know far too many sites out there that claim to review items but instead copy product texts off of the manufacturer sites. Our reviews are also always honest. While free product samples help us finance this site, we will NEVER sell a rating. We do not promote anything that we would not use ourselves and if we do not like something, you will read about it.
We participate in different affiliate programs to finance Social Diving, the Diving Escape Game, its staff, servers, and other operations. When we link to our partners on a page, we disclose this at the top of the page. Clicking on these links and making a purchase will grant us a portion of the sale and helps us stay in business.
Clicking such an affiliate NEVER results in higher prices for you. Most of the time we are even able to provide you with a discount on the product or service directly through the partner link. Thank you for supporting us this way!
In no way does any affiliate relationship ever factor into a recommendation, or alter the integrity of the information we provide. If we get sent free product samples, this will be disclosed openly to you so you can make an educated decision, whether you want to read about our experience or not.
Amazon Affiliate Disclaimer
Social Diving and its connected services is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, amazon.de, and its regional stores.
Our Amazon affiliate links use the Amazon Onelink technology to localize your closest regional store.
Product prices and availability are accurate as of the date/time indicated and are subject to change. Any price and availability information displayed on your regional Amazon store site at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product.
Insurance & Financial Services
On this site, you find links to our partners for (diving) insurance, as well as financial and medical services. We use these ourselves and pay for our diving insurance as customers, as well. While we recommend to you only the -in our opinion- best services, we are not liable for your contract with them.
In no way, we provide a medical service ourselves so please consult with a certified medical professional when in doubt.
