- TourDesk has full permission by the supplier to use all material, pictures, text and any other content that might be deemed useful in the selling of the suppliers’ products. The supplier confirms that TourDesk is in liberty to use any material and content provided, and assumes full responsibility in the event of a third-party infringement claim.
- TourDesk makes its platform available for select partners and affiliates, giving them access to the TourDesk system to sell tours and activities, provided by the supplier and other suppliers alike.

- The TourDesk software has multiple functions, which the affiliate is free to use as required and requested.
- The TourDesk white-labelled portal site is the main pre-arrival sales channel.

- The TourDesk Widget system and API. For those affiliates that wish to further integrate TourDesk on their own platforms, TourDesk offers a direct API link to the TourDesk system, allowing an affiliate full control over displayed data, including, but not limited to, booking widgets, and tour information.
- The supplier agrees that bookings made through the TourDesk system follow the general terms and conditions of the supplier, to be provided to TourDesk, and accepted by the end customer prior to finalizing any booking.

- TourDesk is responsible for any and all payments to its affiliates and partners, payment which is included in the original commission.
