The following terminology applies to these Terms and Conditions, Privacy Statement and Disclaimer Notice and any or all Agreements: "Client", “You” and “Your” refers to you, the person accessing this service and accepting the Company’s terms and conditions. "The Company", “Ourselves”, “We” and "Us", refers to our Company. “Party”, “Parties”, or “Us”, refers to both the Client and ourselves, or either the Client or ourselves. All terms refer to the offer, acceptance and consideration of payment necessary to undertake the process of our assistance to the Client in the most appropriate manner, whether by formal meetings of a fixed duration, or any other means, for the express purpose of meeting the Client’s needs in respect of provision of the Company’s stated services/products, in accordance with and subject to, prevailing English Law. Any use of the above terminology or other words in the singular, plural, capitalisation and/or he/she or they, are taken as interchangeable and therefore as referring to same.

Eligibility

Our Platform is available to all individuals who are at least 18 years of age. Our Platform is not available to any temporarily or indefinitely suspended users. By registering to use our Platform, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age. Additional eligibility requirements for a particular Event may be set by the organizers.

We have the right, in our sole discretion, to suspend or terminate your use of our Platform and refuse any and all current or future use of all or any portion of our Platform.

Password and Security

When you complete our registration process you will create a password that will enable you to access our Platform. You agree to maintain the confidentiality of your password, and are fully responsible for all liability and damages resulting from your failure to maintain that confidentiality and all activities that occur through the use of your password. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or any other breach of security. You agree that PocketSocial cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section

Payment Terms & Fees

There are no fees associated with using PocketSocial to post and join events. For events that collect fees, the funds are collected by the event organizer. We do not charge any transaction fee for facilitating the transfer of fund from an attendee’s credit card to an organizer’s bank account.

Our payment processor, Stripe, charges a fee for transactions, which is paid by PocketSocial as a promotional benefit. We reserve the right to terminate or alter this benefit at our sole discretion without notice.

Payments Transactions

All payment transactions are processed and disbursed by Stripe, our third-party payment processor. Stripe may not support all payment methods, currencies or locations, and is solely responsible for its performance of card processing and their related services.

By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to be bound by Stripe’s Terms of Service. Any breach of those terms will be treated as a breach of these Terms.The company is not responsible for any transactions carried out between users of the products and services, and is waived of any liabilities of such transactions. Users should act with caution when executing such transactions. However, the company will do its best within its ability to ensure the validity of such transactions and assist users to dissolve any disputes occurred on our products and services.

PocketSocial does not hold or control any funds transacted through the Services unless otherwise specifically provided in these Terms. To the extent PocketSocial receives any funds from Users, Organizers appoint PockerSocial as their limited agent for the receipt of those funds. All such funds will be deemed received by an Organizer upon receipt by PocketSocial. Organizers will not seek recourse directly from any User for non-payment after that payment is received by PocketSocial.

You are responsible for paying any applicable taxes for your use of the Services.

You acknowledge that the Company does not control any monetary transaction, and that you bear all risk in connection with the transaction. Refunds of any payment you make to any Organizer or Creator or Host are subject to that Organizer's or Creator's or Host's policies and applicable law. If you believe any payment to an Organizer or Creator or Host is in error, you must contact the Organizer or Creator or Host to seek resolution. We will provide any transaction record we have to help resolve the issue. You should use common sense and be careful in deciding whether to make a payment to an Organizer or Creator or Host. Organizers or Creators or Hosts have full discretion whether and how to spend money in connection with their events. We cannot ensure that an Organizer or Creator or Host is legitimate and truthful, that he or she will use payments as promised, or that you will be happy with how your payment is spent. Your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of events, including payment and related services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and the applicable Organizer or Creator or Host. The company reserves the right to verify the transaction type and suspend any transaction that is not in compliance with the Term and Conditions of the company.

Cancellation & refund

Cancellation is initiated through our products and services, but settled between the users (event host and attendees) independently. Refund is not supported on our products and services. Users who wish to refund their transactions must settle with the receiver of the fund directly.

User Responsibilities

You make payments to an Organizer at your own risk. Unforeseen or other events may prevent an Organizer from providing goods, services or rewards exactly as promised. If things go awry, please be understanding and consider cutting the Organizer some slack. At the end of the day, though, it’s the Organizer’s responsibility, not ours.

Disclaimer

We provide our Services as a neutral platform for users to transact with each other. We’re not directly involved in the transactions between Organizers and Users, and do not provide any assurances that Organizers or Contributors will fulfill their obligations to each other or to others. The actions of users are their own, and PocketSocial doesn’t support, endorse or join them.
Users may provide links to other websites or resources. If you choose to access them, you do so at your own risk. We don’t control or endorse third-party websites or other resources.
