Hosted Events, also Called TalkTheTalks
A Hosted Event is also called a “TalkTheTalk”.
The TalkTheTalk Websites and TalkTheTalk Services comprise of an online platform designed to enable TalkTheTalk Hosts to create TalkTheTalk Invitations for Hosted Events/TalkTheTalks, and for TalkTheTalk Guests to learn about and book Hosted Events/TalkTheTalks directly with the TalkTheTalk Hosts. You understand and agree that TalkTheTalk is not a party to any agreements between TalkTheTalk Hosts and TalkTheTalk Guests and that TalkTheTalk has no control over (and not liability or obligation to you in respect of) the conduct of (i) TalkTheTalk Hosts, (ii) TalkTheTalk Guests, (iii) other users of the TalkTheTalk Websites and TalkTheTalk Services or (iv) others attending or facilitating Hosted Events/TalkTheTalks. You agree that TalkTheTalk is not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other users of the TalkTheTalk Websites or TalkTheTalk Services and you accept that (to the maximum extent permitted by law) TalkTheTalk disclaims all liability resulting from the conduct or any such person.
By agreeing to these T&Cs you agree to adhere to all applicable laws and regulations (including without limiting the generality of this provision, fiscal and administrative regulations) that apply to any Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk.
You agree that TalkTheTalk shall under no circumstance be held responsible or liable for any representation in a TalkTheTalk Invitation or for a Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk not running smoothly or as advertised or otherwise being unsatisfactory.
In certain circumstances, TalkTheTalk may decide, at its own discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk. In these circumstances, TalkTheTalk may determine, at its own discretion, to refund to the TalkTheTalk Guest part or all of the amounts charged to the TalkTheTalk Guest. You agree that TalkTheTalk and the relevant TalkTheTalk Guest or TalkTheTalk Host will have no liability to you in respect of such cancellations or refunds.
When issuing TalkTheTalk Invitations, TalkTheTalk Hosts state the fees that they will charge each TalkTheTalk Guest, these fees are quoted inclusive of all sales and analogous or other taxes (the “TalkTheTalk Host’s Charges”). TalkTheTalk arranges a service for these fees to be collected and held in a third-party trust account on terms that the funds will be paid in accordance with these T&Cs (arranging this collection and holding service constitutes a part of the TalkTheTalk Services). TalkTheTalk may charge TalkTheTalk Guests a fee for the use of the TalkTheTalk Services (the “TalkTheTalk Fees”). Acceptance of a TalkTheTalk Invitation constitutes agreement to pay the TalkTheTalk Host’s Charges and any TalkTheTalk Fees (the “Transaction Fees”). The total amount of the Transaction Fees is the amount payable by the TalkTheTalk Guest in respect of each TalkTheTalk Invitation at the time that the TalkTheTalk Guest accepts the TalkTheTalk Invitation.
TalkTheTalk Hosts agree and acknowledge that they are responsible for discharging all of their own tax obligations (including sales taxes including, but not limited to, VAT) whether these are imposed on a state, local or other level. TalkTheTalk assumes no obligations whatsoever in this regard. In particular, TalkTheTalk assumes no responsibility (actual or deemed) to notify or explain to TalkTheTalk Hosts, or to enquire into, the VAT or sales taxes treatment of any TalkTheTalk Hosts or Hosted Events/TalkTheTalks.
If TalkTheTalk so requires for the purposes of its dealings with any tax or regulatory authority, TalkTheTalk Hosts and TalkTheTalk Guests shall provide to TalkTheTalk, promptly upon request, any information, data, documentation and/or copies of communications (whether in electronic format or otherwise) which relate to Hosted Events/TalkTheTalks in which they have participated. TalkTheTalk Hosts shall, promptly upon request, provide to TalkTheTalk all reasonable assistance in any discussion or dispute with any tax authority with respect to the VAT or sales tax treatment of Hosted Events/TalkTheTalk in which those TalkTheTalk Hosts have participated. Each TalkTheTalk Host agrees to indemnify Bookups for any VAT or similar sales tax obligations which TalkTheTalk is required to pay and which arise wholly from Hosted Events/TalkTheTalk hosted by that TalkTheTalk Host.
You may only make payments in respect of TalkTheTalk Invitations through the payment processing facilities provided on the TalkTheTalk Websites.
You agree that the sole and exclusive role and responsibility of TalkTheTalk (and any of its authorized third-party agents) in providing TalkTheTalk Services relating to processing payments is to arrange the collection of payments from TalkTheTalk Guests and for the payment of the amounts collected in accordance with these T&Cs (and you agree that they have no other or further liability to you in respect of any payment made).
Payments are made by TalkTheTalk Guests through selected payment providers. The terms on which the payment providers hold funds are stated in their terms.
Refunds, Disputes and Resolutions
TalkTheTalk Guests may need to cancel a TalkTheTalk Invitation that they have previously accepted, in such cases please contact TalkTheTalk at email@example.com. TalkTheTalk Guests shall qualify for a full refund of the TalkTheTalk Host’s Charges if (a) the TalkTheTalk Guest notifies TalkTheTalk and the TalkTheTalk Host of cancellation during usual business hours in Bucharest (9am to 5pm on weekdays other than public holidays) at least 48 hours before the date on which the relevant Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk is due, or (b) if the Bookup Host cancels the Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk for any reason.
We hope all TalkTheTalk Guests enjoy every Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk, however sometimes things go wrong and if a TalkTheTalk Guest believes that the TalkTheTalk Host failed to fulfil an essential obligation of the Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk then the TalkTheTalk Guest may until midnight on the day following the date on which the relevant Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk was scheduled to take place request that the whole or a part of the payment is refunded by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the name of the Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk, identifying the TalkTheTalk Host, specifying the amount of the Transaction Fees, saying how much the TalkTheTalk Guest wishes to be reimbursed and giving as much information as possible in relation to the problem/ relevant failures/ reasons for believing that payment should be refunded.
It is important that if, as a TalkTheTalk Guest, you are not satisfied with a Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk you notify TalkTheTalk before midnight on the day following the date on which the relevant Hosted Event/TalkTheTalk was scheduled to take place. Once TalkTheTalk has released funds to the TalkTheTalk Host, it is unable to offer TalkTheTalk Guests any remedy.
Following receipt of a refund request TalkTheTalk may direct that an amount up to the entire value of the Transaction Fees paid by the TalkTheTalk Guest (less payment transaction costs and any third-party agency fees that TalkTheTalk is not entitled to recover) is refunded to the TalkTheTalk Guest. If, however, TalkTheTalk believes that the complaint is without merit, of limited merit or that TalkTheTalk is not able to assess the merits of the complaint, then TalkTheTalk may direct that the whole or any part of the Transaction Fees are paid to the TalkTheTalk Host and/ or that the balance (if any) is withheld pending resolution of the dispute between the relevant TalkTheTalk Host and the TalkTheTalk Guest. If no such resolution has been reached within six months, TalkTheTalk may direct that 50% of the disputed element of the Host’s Charges is paid to the Host and that 50% of the disputed element of the TalkTheTalk Host’s Charges is paid to the Guest (and the TalkTheTalk Fees shall be paid to TalkTheTalk) or may make such other arrangements as then appear appropriate to it (which may include making payment as directed by a Court of competent jurisdiction). Bookups shall have no further or other liability or responsibility to the TalkTheTalk Host and TalkTheTalk Guest in respect of any such claim to be refunded. You agree to abide by decisions made by TalkTheTalk.
TalkTheTalk will endeavor to make refunds to TalkTheTalk Guests through the same payment facility through which the payment was originally made. Where it is not possible to make such a refund, it may require other verification before the refund can be processed. The TalkTheTalk Guest agrees to bear the cost of currency exchanges and risks in fluctuations in currency exchange rates.
By accepting these T&Cs you agree that if TalkTheTalk has followed the processes mentioned above in good faith it shall have no further or other liability or obligation to you.
TalkTheTalk has no responsibility or liability in respect of any failing by a payment processor or authorized agent.
The TalkTheTalk platform serves as a trusted intermediary between TalkTheTalk Hosts and TalkTheTalk Guests and maintains itself through the service fee included in each TalkTheTalk Guests' booking.
