Eventbuddi’s responsibilities are limited to: facilitating the availability of the Site and Services and acting as a Deposit Payment Agent for the Venue owner.
All bookings for a Venue are made directly between the Venue owner and the Customer and at the Venue owner’s and Customer’s own risk. Eventbuddi does not control the content of any Listing and does not control the condition, legality and suitability of any Venue. All use of the Venue is at the risk of the Customer who should ensure that all insurances for the use of the Venue are in place. Eventbuddi specifically disclaims all and any liability over the condition of any Venue to the maximum extent permitted by Law.

You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Eventbuddi with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site regarding any Bookings or Listings made by you.

Listing your Venue
As a Member, you may create Listings for your Venue. To create a Listing, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Venue to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, size, features, and availability of the Venue, additional terms, pricing, and financial terms including any additional Taxes not included in your pricing. In order to be featured in Listings via the Site, all Venues must have valid physical addresses. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Venue via the Site and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Customer sends a Booking Request for your Venue, you may not alter the pricing shown on your Listing as their Booking Request constitutes their offer to rent the Venue which Venue owners may accept or reject.
The Venue owner acknowledges and agrees that they are responsible for any and all Listings they post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or a Customer’s use of, a Venue in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as property owners, property managers, lessors or landlords, and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations that may apply to any Venue included in a Listing you post (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations), and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Eventbuddi assumes no responsibility for a Venue owner’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations.
Eventbuddi reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Eventbuddi, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in breach of these Terms or Policies, or otherwise harmful to the Site or Services.
As a Venue owner, you understand and agree that Eventbuddi does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If a Customer submits a Booking Request and uses your Venue, any agreement you enter into is between you and the Customer. Eventbuddi is not a party to that agreement except as the Venue owner’s Payment Agent.
Eventbuddi has no liability in relation to the decision to enter into an agreement with a Customer or the subsequent conduct of that Customer or the other users of the Venue invited by the Customer. Further the Venue owner is responsible for its own acts and omissions and remains responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who use or are otherwise present at the Venue at your request, invitation or with your agreement.
Eventbuddi recommends that Venue owners obtain appropriate insurance for their Venues. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Venue carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply to such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Customers (and the individuals the Customer invites to the Venue, if applicable) while at your Venue.
Venue owners may choose to include a security deposit in their Listings in the event a Customer damages the Venue (“Deposits“). This deposit will be paid to the venue in an separate arrangement. Eventbuddi is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Venue owners related to Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard. If in connection with a Booking Request a Damage Deposit is required then a Customer will be included in the final payment invoice by the Venue Owner.
Bookings and Fees
Where a booking is requested for a Venue via the Site the Venue owner will be required to either confirm or reject the Booking Request within the Booking Request Period. When a Venue owner confirms a Booking Request from a Customer.
Venue Owner’s are free to set the rates for use of their venue. However you agree to set it at a cost equal to what you would charge externally of use on eventbuddi.com and not ‘pass on’ the commission to the customer.
Once the Venue owner has confirmed a Booking via the Site and/or Services, a binding contract is formed between the Venue owner and the Customer. The Customer must pay a 10% deposit upon booking. Eventbuddi will take this 10% as commission of the total Fee from the booking. The remaining amount will be paid at a time stipulated by the Venue owner, along with any Security Deposit if required, by a preferred method.
Eventbuddi will send the Customer and Venue owner an email confirming the Booking.
Each Venue Owner will stipulate the latest cancellation date – by which the Customer will lose the 10% deposit. This should be detailed on the Venue Listing but also confirmed to the customer upon booking confirmation. It is up to the Venue Owner and the Customer to discuss and agree on movement of dates. If a booking is cancelled Eventbuddi will still retain 5% of the deposit and return 10%. Venue Owners must inform Eventbuddi of any such cancellation.
Eventbuddi reserves the right to change or amend the Venue owner and Processing Fees it charges to Venue owners and Customers upon reasonable notice. New fee rates will not apply to existing Bookings which are yet to be performed but will apply to all new Bookings after the date that the fees are introduced, altered or amended.
If a Venue owner receives an enquiry from or is contacted by a potential Customer via the Site and/or Services to book a Venue and the Customer proceeds to book that Venue with the Venue owner but does not do so via the Site and/or Services then Eventbuddi reserves the right to charge the Venue owner the same Venue owner Fees as if that Booking had been made via the Site and/or Services and the Customer a fee of up to 10% of the Venue Fees.
In accepting appointment as the authorised Payment Agent of the Venue owner for payment services only, Eventbuddi assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Venue owner or Customer.
You as a Venue owner understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and the Taxes that should be included, and for Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. A Venue owner must clearly identify all additional taxes which are payable by a Customer at the time of a Booking Request otherwise such taxes will be deemed to be included in the Venue Fee.
