1.Acceptance of Terms
By accepting these Terms, you acknowledge and understand that Bottlebond does not, through its Services either directly or indirectly sell any alcohol or alcoholic beverages to Users and provides the Services solely for the purpose of Users making Reservations for Provider Services.
The Services are provided solely to assist Users to connect with other Users to form a group (a “Group” or “Groups”) and legitimately gathering information regarding night clubs, bars and other event venues (the “Venues” or a “Venue”) and contracting to reserve certain services from Users who own and/or operate such Venues (the “Providers” and such services the “Provider Services”), which include, without limitation, booking tables, booths or bar sections for potential purchase once at the Venue (any such reservation effected through the Provider Services hereafter referred to as a “Reservation”) from such Venues on a given date (the “Event Date”), at a certain time (the “Order Delivery Time”). The Reservation remains pending until the Provider accepts such Reservation. Once a Group is formed, you may select various options including but not limited to the date, your budget and type of Venue and designate a User (the “Host”) to submit quotations to other Hosts based on the selection of beverages and alcohol bottles offered at a select Venue (a “Selection”), in order to lower the budget of each User of the Group. Such Selection does not amount to a reservation or a purchase, and is provided solely for the purposes of facilitating budget organization amongst Groups. Your Selection shall be visible only to members of your Group, and to the Provider once you arrive at the Venue on the Event Date. Bottlebond is not responsible nor liable and has no control over the time at which your Selection will be served to your Group by the Venue once at the Venue, but Bottlebond advises Groups to arrive about fifteen (15) minutes before Order Delivery Time, and Bottlebond advises Venues to serve Groups their Selection no earlier than at the Order Delivery Time. Hosts may exchange information and change the parameters of the chosen options until both Hosts are satisfied and the quotation is accepted (a “Bond” is formed). By designating a Host, you accept that the options you selected, including the budget may vary. You will be prompted in the Bottlebond mobile application if a new budget is set for the Group, and therefore increases the budget you initially set. You will then have the option to accept or decline such increase. Upon your arrival to the Venue, you or any member of your Group may be asked to provide a valid government-issued ID, as well as the credit card used to reserve the Provider Services.
3. Account & Eligibility
This Agreement will remain in full force and effect while you use the Service and/or have a Bottlebond account (the “Term”). You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions in “Settings” in the Service. Bottlebond may terminate or suspend your account at any time without notice if Bottlebond believes that you have breached this Agreement in its sole discretion. After your account is terminated, this Agreement will terminate, except for the provisions of the sections labelled “Payment & Fees”, “Intellectual Property”, “No Liability”, “No Warranty”, “Indemnity”, “No Waiver”, “Severability, Force Majeure, Entire Agreement & Headings”, “Representations and Warranties”, and “Governing Law”.
5.Payment & Fees
User agrees to pay to Provider any applicable fees for each Service, Provider Service (the “Provider Fees”) or Selection that User purchases, reserves or uses, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented by Provider for such Service. Such Provider Fees and Selection, where applicable, shall be payable on the Event Date once a member of your Group arrives to the Venue. Where applicable, you will be billed directly from Provider and redirected for payment through Stripe.
You may cancel any Reservation for a Provider Service through the Platform before 8pm on the Event Date. If you cancel a Reservation for a Provider Service after 8pm on the Event Date, or if you or your Group does not show up to the Venue, you will be charged for such Provider Service, but not for the Selection.
