INTERTAIN CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS AND THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY SERVICES. INTERTAIN IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS AND SERVICES. ACCORDINGLY, ANY BOOKINGS WILL BE MADE AT THE CLIENT’S OWN RISK.
In order to access certain features of the Site and Application, and to book a Service or create a Listing, you must register to create an account (“Intertain Account”) and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Site or Application or as described in this section.
You can also register to join by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites (“SNS”) (including, but not limited to, Facebook); each such account, a “Third Party Account”, via our Site or Application, as described below.
As part of the functionality of the Site, Application and Services, you may link your Intertain Account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to Intertain through the Site, Services or Application; or (ii) allowing Intertain to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account.
You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to Intertain and/or grant Intertain access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Intertain to pay any fees or making Intertain subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers.
By granting Intertain access to any Third Party Accounts, you understand that Intertain will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your Third Party Account (“SNS Content”) so that it is available on and through the Site, Services and Application via your Intertain Account and Intertain Account profile page.
Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, will be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, Personal Information that you post to your Third Party Accounts will be available on and through your Intertain Account on the Site, Services and Application.
Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Intertain’s access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Site, Services and Application. You have the ability to disable the connection between your Intertain Account and your Third Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the “Settings” section of the Site and Application.
Intertain makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and Intertain is not responsible for any SNS Content.
We will create your Intertain Account and your Intertain Account profile page for your use of the Site and Application based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via an SNS as described above. You may not have more than one (1) active Intertain Account.
You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete.
Intertain reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Intertain Account and your access to the Site, Application and Services if you create more than one (1) Intertain Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete.
You are responsible for safeguarding your password and agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Intertain Account, whether or not you have authorised such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Intertain of any unauthorised use of your Intertain Account.
As a Member, you may create Listings. To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Services to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, past work history, ingredients, menus, availability of the Services and pricing and related rules and financial terms.
Listings will be made publicly available via the Site, Application and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Services via the Site, Application and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Client requests a booking of your Services, the price for such booking may not be altered.
You represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or Client engagement, with Services in a Listing you post (a) contains true and accurate information regarding the Service (b) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (c) will (i) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Listing you post, including, but not limited to, any business licensing requirements, the Food Standards Code and Food Safety Program and (ii) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Intertain assumes no responsibility for a Chef’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations.
Intertain reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Intertain, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.
You understand and agree that Intertain does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as a Chef. If a Client requests a booking of your Services and retains your Services, any agreement you enter into with such Client is between you and the client; and Intertain is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Intertain serves as the limited authorised agent of the Chef for the purpose of accepting payments from Clients on behalf of the Chef and is responsible for transmitting such payments to the Chef.
While Intertain may make attempts to verify users, through the collection of information pertaining to name, email/Facebook details, phone number, address and payment information, Intertain cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information provided to it.
If you are a Chef, Intertain makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to accept bookings from. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Chef, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you retain to provide your Services or are otherwise present at the place of Service at your request or invitation, excluding the Client (and the individuals the Client invites to the place of Services, if applicable.)
Intertain recommends that Chefs obtain appropriate insurance for their Services. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Services carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Clients (and the individuals the Client invites to the Services, if applicable) while providing your Services.
Intertain does not endorse any Members or any Services. Although these Terms require Members to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any Member’s purported identity. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Site, Application and Services. Intertain is not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.
By using the Site, Application or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Intertain with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you.
This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Chef against Intertain regarding the remittance of payments received from a Client by Intertain on behalf of a Chef, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.
Bookings and Financial Terms
Bookings and Financial Terms for Chefs
The fees displayed in each booking are comprised of the Services Fees (defined below) and the Credit Card Fee (defined below).
Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Services Fees and Client Fees. The Services Fees, the Client Fees and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Total Fees”.
The amounts due and payable by a Client solely relating to a Chef’s Services are the “Chef’s Fee”. Please note that it is the Chef and not Intertain which determines the Chef’s Fees.
Intertain charges an additional Credit Card Fee to Clients based upon a percentage of applicable Chef’s Fees. The Credit Card Fees are added to the Chef’s Fees to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes).
Intertain will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking confirmation and will initiate payment of the Chef’s Fees (less Intertain’s commission (defined below)) to the Chef within 24 hours of when the Chef provides the Services agreed upon.
Appointment of Intertain as Payment Agent for Chef
Each Chef hereby appoints Intertain as the Chef’s limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Clients on behalf of the Chef. Each Chef agrees that payment made by a Client to Intertain shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Chef and the Chef will make the Services available to Client in the agreed upon manner as if the Chef has received the Chef’s Fees.
Each Chef agrees that, Intertain may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Chef and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the Client to cancel the booking and (ii) refund to the Client that portion of the Chef’s Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. In accepting appointment as the limited authorised agent of the Chef, Intertain assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Chef.
Please note that Intertain does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you acknowledge and agree that Intertain reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that Intertain will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.
Bookings and Financial Terms for Clients
The Chefs, not Intertain, are solely responsible for honouring any confirmed bookings and making available any Services reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Client, choose to enter into a transaction with a Chef for the booking of a Service, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Chef and agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Services imposed by the Chef.
You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Intertain, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Intertain is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, Intertain disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that Intertain is not a party to the agreement between you and the Chef, Intertain acts as the Chef’s payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Chef.
Upon your payment of amounts to Intertain which are due to the Chef, your payment obligation to the Chef for such amounts is extinguished, and Intertain is responsible for remitting such amounts, less Intertain’s Fees, to the Chef. In the event that Intertain does not remit any such amounts to a Chef, such Chef will have recourse only against Intertain.
Bookings for Services will specify the Total Fees. You agree to pay Intertain for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your Intertain Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable Chef.
In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Chef’s confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that Intertain, on behalf of the Chef, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorisation via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting (e.g. one euro or one British pound) to verify your credit card.
Once Intertain receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Chef, Intertain will collect the Total Fees in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that Intertain cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Client by his or her bank related to Intertain’s collection of the Total Fees, and Intertain disclaims all liability in this regard.
In connection with your requested booking, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address, and credit card information either to Intertain or its third party payment processor.
You agree to pay Intertain for any confirmed bookings made in connection with your Intertain Account in accordance with these Terms by one of the methods described on the Site or Application – e.g. by PayPal or credit card.
You hereby authorise the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card provided as part of requesting the booking, either directly by Intertain or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Site or Application.
Once your confirmed booking transaction is complete you will receive a confirmation email summarising your confirmed booking.
In consideration for providing the Services, Intertain collects service fees from Chefs and Clients (“Service Fees”).
Service Fees are made up of two (2) components: (a) Credit Card Fees and (b) a fee that is charged to the Chef based upon a percentage of the amount of the Total Fees (“Chef Payment Fees”). Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Credit Card Fees.
Chef Payment Fees are deducted from the Total Fees before remitting the Chef’s Fees to the Chef, within 3 business days from time of service.
Credit Card Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees.
Balances will be remitted by Intertain to Chefs via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
General Booking and Financial Terms
Cancellations and Refunds
If, as a Client, you wish to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site, Application and Services, prior to the date of Services, the amount of refund you may be eligible for is:
- If the cancellation occurs 7 days or more prior to the date of the Services, Intertain will refund in full minus a 25% booking fee.
- If the cancellation occurs less than 7 days prior to the date of the Services, You will forfeit the entire cost of the booking.
- If a chef cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) Intertain will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Client within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Client will receive an email or other communication from Intertain containing alternative Listings and other related information.
- If the Client requests a booking from one of the alternative Listings and the Chef associated with such alternative Listing confirms the Client’s requested booking, then the Client agrees to pay Intertain the Total Fees relating to the confirmed in the alternative Listing, in accordance with these Terms.
- If a Chef cancelled a confirmed booking and you, as a Client, have not received an email or other communication from Intertain, please contact Intertain at email@example.com.
In some instances, Clients may be required to make recurring, incremental payments toward the Total Fees owed for a confirmed booking before date of Services (collectively, “Recurring Payments”). More information on Recurring Payments will be made available via the Site, Application and Services, if applicable.
If Recurring Payments apply to your payment obligations for Total Fees owed for a confirmed booking, you authorise Intertain, on behalf of the Chef, to collect the Total Fees in the increments and at the frequency associated with the applicable Recurring Payments, identified on the Site, Application and Services.
Some Chefs may pledge to donate a portion of the funds they receive from confirmed bookings made via the Site, Application and Services to a particular cause or charity. We do not control, and will not take any responsibility or liability for, whether the Chef does in fact make the donation he or she pledged to make.
Intertain cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members. Each Chef is responsible for determining the applicable taxes and acknowledges that the Total Fees charged for various listings is inclusive of all direct and indirect Taxes.
Intertain may provide a feature through which Members may view Total Fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Total Fees are for informational purposes only and are not the official Total Fees for the Listings.
If you (as a Client) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Total Fees if your booking is confirmed by a Chef.
The currency in which you will be charged will be determined by Intertain based on the payment method you select and the location in the Listing you are booking.
If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Chef to receive payment, Intertain will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that Intertain has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the “Applicable Exchange Rate”).
You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although Intertain updates the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it does not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate.
For the avoidance of doubt, Intertain will retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate between the date your booking is confirmed and the date Intertain makes payment to a Chef.
Responsibility for Damage
As a Chef, you are responsible for leaving any premises of Services in the condition it was in when you arrived. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Chef, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the premises of Service.
In the event that a Client claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to, photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items.
