  • Creator terms
    • Our platform is a curated online marketplace where Hosts can list their Property or specified space(s) within their property to be Booked for an Event and you can communicate with potential Hosts.
    • Hosts are solely responsible for the Listing, including ensuring that it is accurate, not misleading and in accordance with advertising standards.
    • Our role is to provide the platform and we have no responsibility to you or to third parties for the Listing whatsoever. The fact that a Listing is published on the platform does not indicate that we have verified the Property or endorsed the Listing.
    • While we undertake suitable verification of Hosts and Listings, we cannot guarantee that all Listings will be true, accurate and not misleading and will include everything that you may need to know nor can we guarantee that all Properties will be available, of suitable quality and safe, or that the Host has all legal rights and consents to hire the Property to you. We will seek to remove any Listings that we deem to be inappropriate, false, or misleading.
    • Once you have Booked a Property, a legal contract is formed between you and the Host on the terms set out below and as amended by agreement between the parties and any specific terms set out in the Listing.  Under no circumstances shall we be a party to that contract. It is the Host’s responsibility to provide you access to the Property at the times and dates agreed in the Booking.
    • You will only receive the Property address and location once the Booking Price and Service Charge is paid in full.
    • For the duration of the Event, you are granted a limited licence to use the Property for the purpose you have intended and which have been accepted by the Host. Your licence will automatically end when the period booked by you for the Event ends.
  • Payments
    • At the point a Booking Request is submitted, Stripe will hold an authorisation of the charge on your card, until the Host accepts the Booking, at which point the money will be taken.  We will remit the Booking Fee (less the applicable commissions) to the Host after the satisfactory completion of the Event (or cancellation, pursuant to clause [4] below), subject to no dispute being raised by either party.
    • When you make a Booking, we will add the Service Charge to the Booking Fee and retain this as our fee. The full Service Charge is payable upon booking.
    • All payments made by you are processed by a third party payment processor, currently Stripe, and you should read their terms and conditions and privacy policy before you make a Booking as you will be bound by them at all times. You agree to provide us with accurate and complete information and you authorise us to share this information and all transaction information related to your use of Stripe.
    • We reserve the right to change the Service Charge at any time, and will provide you adequate notice of any fee changes before they become effective.
  • Cancellations
    • In the event you need to cancel your Booking, you should contact the Host (via the platform) was much notice as possible, as the shorter the notice you provide, the lower the refund you will be entitled to, as follows:
      • if you cancel your Booking more than 7 days before the start of your Event, you will be refunded the Booking Fee;
      • if you cancel your Booking between 48 hours and 7 days before the start of your Event, you will be refunded 50% of the Booking Fee; or
      • if you cancel your Booking within 48 hours of the start of your Event, you forfeit the full Booking Fee.
    • In no circumstances will the Service Charge be refunded on termination by you.
    • You will be notified by email of cancellation of your Booking.
    • If you need to change the date of the Event, please contact the Host through our Platform. A date change may be rescheduled if mutually agreed upon by us and the Host. The  rescheduled Event must be the same duration as the original confirmed Event and also mutually agreed upon in a time period that complies with the above Cancellation Policy.
    • The Host is responsible for honouring any Bookings and making the Property available in accordance with the agreed terms of the Booking. If the Host cancels a Booking less than 7 days prior to the Event you will receive back the full Booking Fee and the Service Charge.
  • Your responsibility
    • All platform login details and Creator Account information are confidential and you should not disclose your login details to anyone else. You must notify us if you are aware of or have reason to believe that your Creator Account is being used by a third party and we will take steps to restrict access to your Creator Account. You will at all times remain solely responsible for all activities on your Creator Account, whether by you or by any third party and we can accept no liability or responsibility on your behalf.
    • By accessing our platform, you warrant to us that you are at least 18 years old and have the capacity to enter into a legally binding contract. If you are contracting on behalf of a company, you represent and warrant that you are authorised by that company to enter into such con tracts and to bind the relevant company.
    • You are responsible for your own acts and omissions in using the platform and making a Booking.
    • You are solely responsible for choosing the Property and making a Booking. It is important that you have done your own research, asked any relevant questions of the Host and ensured that the Property meets your requirements. You accept and understand that you will be bound by any limitations or restrictions imposed on users of the Property, including the house rules stipulated by the Host.  You should note that such matters if set out in writing in correspondence or the Listing will become terms of the contract between you and the Host.
    • When making a Booking, you are required to confirm the number of individuals that will be in attendance. Where you attend a Property with more than the confirmed number of individuals, the Host reserves the right to terminate your Booking immediately (without refund to you), or to add extra time to your Booking (only if they choose to do so within their sole discretion).
    • You must not use the Property for the photography of anything which is pornographic, offensive or inappropriate. Naked and underwear photography may be permitted, where the Host has approved this in advance. It is essential that, when liaising with a potential Host, you are open and up front about the proposed use of the Property so that they may decline the Booking if they so wish.  The Host will not be responsible to you for any loss and you agree to indemnify and hold them harmless from any legal claim if you are fail to abide by this term and the Host later cancels your Booking or prohibits access to the Property before or during the Event.
    • You understand and agree that you will not seek to circumvent these terms by engaging outside our platform with a Host introduced to you through the platform to hire out their Property.  You also agree not to contact a Host for any purpose other than asking a question related to your own Booking, including, but not limited to, recruiting or otherwise soliciting any Host to join third-party services, applications or websites.  In the event that you seek to do so, we may seek payment from you for our Service Charge for any Events undertaken where the Host has been introduced through the platform.
    • It is essential that you respect the Host’s rights to privacy and confidentiality and that you will only use the Host’s contact details for the purposes of discussing the Event. You must not share these details with any third party.
    • You must leave the Property in the condition that it was at the start of the Event (including returning any furniture back to its original place) and you must leave promptly at the agreed time unless the Host agrees to extend the Booking. This must be undertaken through the “Overtime” function on the platform and, unless otherwise agreed, will be charged at 1.5 times the listed hourly rate.
