7. Financial arrangements
7.1 When issuing Eatwith Invitations Hosts state the fees that they will charge each Guest, these fees are quoted inclusive of all sales and analogous or other taxes (the “Host’s Charges”).Eatwith 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 Eatwith Services).Eatwith may charge Guests a fee for the use of the Eatwith Services (the “Eatwith Fees”).Acceptance of a Eatwith Invitation constitutes agreement to pay the Host’s Charges and any Eatwith Fees (the “Transaction Fees”).The total amount of the Transaction Fees is the amount payable by the Guest in respect of each Eatwith Invitation at the time that the Guest accepts the Eatwith Invitation.
7.2 Where applicable, the Eatwith Fees are calculated as a variable percentage of the Host’s Charges.Any Eatwith Fees are payable by the Guests at the same time as payment of the Host’s Charges.To the extent that the Eatwith Fees are subject to sales taxes, such as VAT, these taxes will be included in the total amount payable by the Guest in respect of the Transaction Fees.Where Eatwith charges Eatwith Fees it shall on request provide an invoice in respect of those Eatwith Fees, separately identifying any sales taxes charged by Eatwith.
7.3 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. Eatwith assumes no obligations whatsoever in this regard. In particular, Eatwith assumes no responsibility (actual or deemed) to notify or explain to Hosts, or to enquire into, the VAT or sales taxes treatment of any Hosts or Hosted Events.
7.4 If Eatwith so requires for the purposes of its dealings with any tax or regulatory authority, Hosts and Guests shall provide to Eatwith, promptly on request, any information, data, documentation and/or copies of communications (whether in electronic format or otherwise) which relate to Hosted Events in which they have participated. Hosts shall, promptly on request, provide to Eatwith all reasonable assistance in any discussion or dispute with any tax authority with respect to the VAT or sales tax treatment of Hosted Events in which those Hosts have participated.Each Host agrees to indemnify Eatwith for any VAT or similar sales tax obligations which Eatwith is required to pay and which arise wholly from Hosted Events hosted by that Host.
7.5 You may only make payments in respect of Eatwith Invitations through the payment processing facilities provided on the Eatwith Websites, by special arrangement with Eatwith through its direct booking services or of through a third-party agency that is authorised by Eatwith to provide those parts of the Eatwith Services relating to processing payments.Please check with Eatwith to ensure that any third-party with whom you are dealing is properly authorised by Eatwith.If the Eatwith Invitation is transacted through an authorised third-party you may not be required to pay any Eatwith Fees, but the authorised third-party agent may instead charge an administration fee.
7.6 You agree that the sole and exclusive role and responsibility of Eatwith (and any of its authorised third-party agents) in providing Eatwith Services relating to processing payments is to arrange the collection of payments from 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).
7.7 Payments are made by Guests through selected payment providers.The terms on which the payment providers hold funds are stated in their terms.Eatwith may receive amounts due to Hosts from payment providers, where it does so such funds will be held in a bank account (separate from Eatwith’s own trading bank account) until they are transferred to the Host (or, where appropriate, reimbursed to the Guest).
7.8 Eatwith may “round off” numbers to the nearest functional base unit in the relevant currency.Eatwith uses commercial currency exchange operators and registered users accept the risks in fluctuations in currency exchange rates
8. Insurance, disputes, resolution and refunds
8.1 Guests may need to cancel a Eatwith Invitation that they have previously accepted, in such cases please contact Eatwith at [email protected]. Guests shall qualify for a full refund of the Host’s Charges if (a) the Guest notifies Eatwith and the Host of cancellation during usual business hours in London (being 9am to 5pm on weekdays other than public holidays) before the cancellation deadline of the relevant Hosted Event, or (b) if the Host cancels the Hosted Event for any reason.
8.2 We hope all Guests enjoy every Hosted Event, however sometimes things go wrong and if a Guest believes that the Host failed to fulfil an essential obligation of the Hosted Event then the Guest may until midnight on the day following the date on which the relevant Hosted Event was scheduled to take place request that the whole or a part of the payment is refunded by using the claim form on the page summarizing the reservation or by sending an email to [email protected] specifying the Hosted Event reference, identifying the Host, specifying the amount of the Transaction Fees, saying how much the 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.
8.3 Eatwith has an insurance policy in force which is intended to give the benefits and protections explained on the section labelled “Guarantee” on the Eatwith Websites.Please notify Eatwith immediately at [email protected] if you have suffered loss which appears to be covered by the insurance policy. The notification should include all relevant details and include such information and evidence as is available to you to substantiate the claim. By sending the email you agree to provide us with all further information that is reasonably available to you which we request in relation to the claim, including any medical or travel details and expenses, details of any other insurance available to you and any proposed or agreed resolution of any of the circumstances relating to the claim with any third party. Eatwith agrees to indemnify or compensate you in respect of any such losses to the extent only that it is able to secure recovery from its insurance policy.Eatwith will not deduct any administration fees from any such amount so recovered.Save as provided in this clause 8.3 Eatwith has no further or other obligation or liability in respect of its guarantee.
8.4 If you have a dispute relating to a Hosted Event, we encourage you (although this is not compulsory) to contact our claims department in order to try to resolve the dispute amicably. Our claims service can be contacted:
By email at the following address: [email protected]
By telephone on +33 (0)9 84 51 97 55
By post at VizEat Ltd, Acre House, 11-15 William Road, London, NW1 3ER, United Kingdom
8.5 It is important that if, as a Guest, you are not satisfied with a Hosted Event you notify Eatwith before midnight on the day following the date on which the relevant Hosted Event was scheduled to take place.Once Eatwith has released funds to the Host, it is unable to offer Guests any remedy.
8.6 Following receipt of a refund request Eatwith may direct that an amount up to the entire value of the Transaction Fees paid by the Guest (less payment transaction costs and any third-party agency fees that Eatwith is not entitled to recover) is refunded to the Guest.If, however, Eatwith believes that the complaint is without merit, of limited merit or that Eatwith is not able to assess the merit of the complaint, then Eatwith may direct that the whole or any part of the Transaction Fees are paid to the Host and/ or that the balance (if any) is withheld pending resolution of the dispute between the relevant Host and the Guest.If no such resolution has been reached within six months, Eatwith 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 Host’s Charges is paid to the Guest (and the Eatwith Fees shall be paid to Eatwith) 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).Eatwith shall have no further or other liability or responsibility to the Host and Guest in respect of any such claim to be refunded.You agree to abide by decisions made by Eatwith (even if the decision appears perverse to you).
8.7 Eatwith agrees to use reasonable endeavours to assess merits of claims and to act in good faith toward Guests and Hosts, however you agree that it has no responsibility or liability to you for any assessment it makes in relation to the merits of any claim between Guests and Hosts or any direction it gives as to the payments to be made to Guests or Hosts in accordance with this clause 8 and you also agree that Eatwith may make or decline refunds and payments pursuant to these T&Cs and that if and to the extent it does so it shall have no further liability or obligation to you or the Host or Guest.
8.8 Eatwith will endeavour to make refunds to Guests through the same payment facility through which the payment was originally made. Where it is not possible to make such a refund, it will may require other verification before the refund can be processed.The Guest agrees to bear the cost of currency exchanges and risks in fluctuations in currency exchange rates.
8.9By accepting these T&Cs you agree that if Eatwith has followed the processes mentioned above in good faith it shall have no further or other liability or obligation to you.
8.10Eatwith has not responsibility or liability in respect of any failing by a payment processor or authorised agent.
9.0The EatWith platform serves as a trusted intermediary between Hosts and Guests and maintains itself through the service fee included in each Guests' booking. This also includes insurance that protects our Hosts and Guests during their EatWith experiences. In the case that a Host or Guest offers payment alternatives outside of the platform, EatWith is no longer able to extend it's insurance to the Host or Guest and reserves the right to disable the Host's EatWith account.
