THESE TERMS CREATE A BINDING LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND COCUSOCIAL. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY.
1. Nature of the Service
General. CocuSocial is an entertainment service which arranges cooking classes (the “Events”) at local restaurants and bars (the “Venues”). Users can purchase tickets (“Tickets”) to Events via the Site.
Availability. The availability of Events at particular Venues will change from time to time and could potentially change on the day of the Event. The availability of a specific chef/instructor at the Event may change at our sole discretion. While we will endeavor to make the chef/instructor you have signed up for available for the Event, the chef/instructor may change at CocuSocial’s sole discretion without notice to you.
Event Cancellation. In certain circumstances we may need to cancel an Event. We will contact you via email if an Event that you are registered for is cancelled. You will have the option of receiving a refund of your ticket price or applying your ticket to another Event that has availability.
Materials Provided. All ingredients, utensils, cooking supplies and other equipment required for the Event (“Equipment”) will be provided by the chef/instructor or the Venue. The quality of the Equipment and chef/instructor may vary from Event to Event, and Venue to Venue, and may be affected by a variety of factors.
Start Time. CocuSocial will make every effort to begin the Event at the designated start time and complete the Event in under two hours. However, the time it takes to begin and complete the Event will vary based on a number of factors, and CocuSocial makes no representation as to the exact amount of instruction time at the Event.
Capacity Limitations. You may not be able to attend the Event due to capacity limitations of the Venue where the Event takes place. We recommend that you arrive at the Venue at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the Event.
Cancellation/Rescheduling Policy. Please check the "Cancellation/Rescheduling policy" section of the specific event you are attending. We abide by our cancellation policy strictly.
Children. The Service is not directed to users under the age of 21. The Service does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 21. If you are under the age of 21, you are not permitted to register as a User or to send personal information to CocuSocial.
The Service may require you to log in and create an account. When you register for an account, you may be required to provide us with some information about yourself, such as your first name, last name, email address or other contact information. We may also request additional information from you. You represent and warrant to us that you will provide us with accurate, current and complete registration information. You are responsible for your registration, and for all use of the Service using any User credentials or passwords issued to you or chosen by you. You will keep all such credentials and passwords confidential.
3. Tickets, Billing and Promotions
By purchasing a Ticket, you are expressly agreeing that CocuSocial is authorized to charge you a fee at the then current rate for such Ticket, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Service to the payment method you provided during your Ticket purchase. Please note that prices and charges are subject to change with notice. As used in these Terms, “billing” shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your payment method. The Ticket fee will be billed on the day you purchase the Ticket and not on the day you utilize the Ticket. You acknowledge that the amount billed for each Ticket you purchase may vary from day to day for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR UNUSED OR PARTIALLY USED TICKETS. Your Ticket never expires. At any time, and for any reason, CocuSocial may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration (“credits”) to some or all of its customers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at CocuSocial’s sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate CocuSocial to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance. You will provide us with accurate and valid credit card or purchasing card information. You hereby authorize CocuSocial to provide your payment details to our third party payment processor for processing payments. If any charge is rejected by our bank or payment provider, you are still liable to pay the fees. We reserve the right to accept, refuse or cancel any Ticket orders placed through the Site, without liability or justification. We will refund you in case your Ticket order was cancelled by us after your credit card or purchasing card has been charged. Promotional codes may be redeemed on the Site. Promotional codes can only be used once and cannot be redeemed for cash, resold or combined with any other offers. A valid payment method will be required when you redeem the promotional code.
4. User Content
Certain features of the Service may permit users to upload content to the Site and Service, including comments, photos, video, images, data, text, screenshots and other types of works (“Your Content”). You retain your rights in Your Content, subject to the rights granted below.
