Terms & Conditions

Effective: March 13, 2018

Hi, welcome to Evounce! We’re ready to get your party started, but before you use the site, please read these terms of use, as there are very important terms that govern our relationship. Thanks!

As applied to this website (www.evounce.com) (the "Site"), and as updated from time to time, these terms (the “Agreement”) constitute a contract between you and us and govern your use of the Site at all times. When you access and/or use the Site, you agree to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. As used in this Agreement, "Evounce," "we," "us," and "our" shall mean Evounce LLC. Evounce provides an online technology platform and mobile application that connects event Planners with local service providers (the "Platform"). Through the Platform, Planners may rent space, order catering, or other entertainment services delivered to them from particular vendors (“Vendors”), sometimes herein referred to as Vendors or Hosts, in cities throughout the United States and other territories where Evounce provides such services. For clarification, this agreement applies to Planners–you who are planning an event, Vendors for providing food and event services, as well as Hosts for providing limited use of space. Vendors and Hosts are used interchangeably herein, unless qualified by “only Hosts” or “only Vendors.”

The Vendors and Hosts available on our Site operate independently and have entered into this agreements with us to provide the services available to you on the Sit, and are required to comply with federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations, and standards pertaining to providing their services or spaces; Evounce is not responsible for the Vendors’ products, services, or Hosts’ spaces and does not verify any vendor’s or Host’s compliance with applicable laws. Evounce does not guarantee the services provided by any vendor or space provider. Evounce does not independently verify representations made by vendors regarding their products, services, or spaces.

If you do not comply with these terms, you agree that the alcoholic beverage(s) will not be released to you, and you shall forfeit the cost of such beverages.

CREDIT POLICY

Unless prohibited by law, in the event of any error in your order or the amount you were charged, you are entitled to a credit, provided it is brought to our attention within 60 days of your order date. If you do not raise the issue within 60 days of your order date, you waive the ability to receive a credit for any error.

OTHER MONEY ISSUES

FEES AND TAXES. (a) Fees and Deposits. You hereby acknowledge your responsibility for payment of fees, expenses, and other amounts related to your event (“Fees”). Fees include amounts paid to Evounce, Hosts, and Vendors and as described herein. Evounce receives Fees for providing use of the Site and associated services, Hosts and Vendors receive Fees for Bookings. The specific Fees charged are presented when you complete, update, or cancel a Booking. Please review all Fees on the Evounce Service Scope of Work before completing a Booking to make sure you understand the Fees for the Booking, including our Cancellation and Refund Policy. While we may facilitate the collection of Fees and Deposits for Hosts or Vendors, once remitted to Hosts or Vendors, we are not responsible for the return of Fees or Deposits to Guests, where applicable.

BOOKING. A Booking provides limited use of a Vendor’s service or Space as described in the Listing and Evounce Project Scope of Work, if applicable. If you use a Space or Vendor Service beyond the Booking you will be responsible for payment of additional Fees (“Additional Fees”). We may calculate the Additional Fees based on your exceeding the time (for example, a calculated hourly rate billed in 30-minute increments) or other costs associated with your exceeding the permitted usage of the Booking (for example, exceeding the number of Event attendees). You are solely responsible for any damage done to the Space or the Amenities by anyone attending or working at your Event. Planners must notify us within 3 days of a Guest exceeding the permitted use of the Space and specifically request payment of Additional Fees.

Certain Bookings may require you to provide a portion of prepaid Fees or a refundable amount (“Deposit”) in advance. All Fees and Deposits, as applicable, will be identified prior to completing your Booking. If held by Evounce, at our option, Deposits may be credited to your Booking or returned when the Space is returned in acceptable condition and free of any material damage.

TAXES AND FINES. You are solely responsible for payment of all taxes, levies, penalties, and other costs imposed by any taxing authority or government agency related to Listing or Booking Spaces or Vendor Services including any sales or occupancy tax, indirect taxes such as valued added tax (VAT) or goods and services tax (GST), usage or permitting fees, duties, and other taxes imposed by municipalities, states, or governments through regulation, ordinance, law, or judicial or regulatory interpretation (collectively “Taxes”). Except as required by Law, Evounce will not calculate, track or pay Taxes or submit Tax reporting on your behalf. You are responsible for all Taxes owed for Booking or Listing a Space, or providing or using Vendor Services including, without limitation, accurate calculation of Taxes due, timely remittance of Taxes to the appropriate taxing authority and maintenance of any required records and accounts. If a taxing authority demands that we pay such Taxes on your behalf, you are immediately liable to us for such Taxes and will reimburse or pay Evounce for such Taxes upon demand. You are also responsible for any penalties arising from your failing to comply with this Agreement including those issued by regulatory or taxing authorities, law enforcement, fire code or safety agencies, or other third parties; or that may be issued by us for losses we or users incur that are based on your failing to comply with this Agreement or misuse of the Platform, Services, Space, or Vendor Services (collectively, “Fines”). You understand and agree that Evounce does not provide you with any advice or guidance of any kind or nature regarding Taxes and that you have been advices to consult with your tax advisor for any required advice or guidance regarding Taxes.

PAYMENT. You will timely and fully pay any Fees, Deposits, Taxes, Fines, or other amounts you owe under this Agreement. If owed and we are unable to receive payment through the Site for any reason, we may require that you pay through other means (such as direct debit, wire transfer, or cashiers’ check). If necessary, we may set-off any amounts owed to us through collection of funds that would otherwise be payable to you through the Platform. You are responsible for any costs or expenses associated with our recovering Fees, Taxes, or Fines owed, including our attorneys’ fees or expenses. In our discretion, any late payments of more than 7 days may incur a late charge of up to ten percent (10%) and accumulate interest of ten percent (10%) per month until delinquency is resolved.

RECEIVING PAYMENT. Stripe (www.stripe.com) provides acceptance and payment of funds between users or Evounce on the Platform (“Payment Processing”). Your use therefore is subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement that includes the Stripe Services Agreement as may be modified by Stripe from time to time (collectively, the “Stripe Agreement”). Bank and credit card information is sent directly to and stored with Stripe using their security protocols. Evounce does not store your payment information on its systems and shall not have any responsibility for the safety or security of that information. Your use of Payment Processing is conditioned upon your compliance with the Stripe Agreement, and if the Stripe Agreement is terminated by Stripe you may not be able to use the Platform, or have your Account suspended or terminated.

We may change or add other payment processing services at any time upon notice to you, which may be subject to additional terms or conditions.
