Effective and Updated as of July 21, 2017
This following agreement describes the terms and conditions on which BashPros Inc. offers you access to and use of its mobile application and website, commonly known as the “BashPros App” and http://www.BashPros.com.
Welcome to the End User Agreement (the “Agreement” or “Terms of Service”) for the BashPros App and http://www.BashPros.com (collectively, the “BashPros Platform”), an application and website wholly owned and operated by BashPros Inc., a Delaware corporation, whose principal office is located at 520 Broadway Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90401. This Agreement is a legally binding contract made between you, the User (“You,” “Your,” or “Yourself”) and BashPros Inc. (“BashPros,” “We,” “Us” or “Our”).
BashPros is willing to allow you to participate in and use the BashPros Platform only upon the express condition that You fully accept and abide by all the terms and other conditions contained in this Agreement, without dispute, exception or protest. This is not an agreement to allow you to license, sell or own any part of the BashPros Platform but only a permissive use contract. By signing up with and/or using the BashPros Platform, You indicate that You understand this Agreement and accept to be bound by all of its terms. If You do not accept all the terms of this Agreement, You may not use the BashPros Platform for any reason or under any circumstances and agree to terminate use of the BashPros Platform immediately in connection therewith. You must read, agree with and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, which includes those terms and conditions expressly set out below and those incorporated by reference, before You use the BashPros Platform or any other person or entity uses it on your behalf.
The BashPros Platform is a mobile application and/or web based platform that acts as a digital marketplace for customers seeking various services and/or products (“Users”) offered by independent vendors (“Vendors”) through the BashPros Platform for purposes related to event planning and/or event production (“Services”). BashPros also offers Users in-house event planning and production services performed directly for Users by BashPros (the “BashPros Concierge”).
In order to obtain or contract for any Services or use the BashPros Concierge, You must be a registered User of the BashPros Platform and must agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may amend this Agreement at any time by posting the amended terms on the BashPros Platform. If We amend this Agreement in any way or for any reason, You may not use or continue to use the BashPros Platform without accepting such amendment/s. Except as stated below, all amended terms shall automatically be effective after they are posted on the BashPros Platform.
None of the Services offered on, by, or through the BashPros Platform are offered or provided, in any way, shape, or form, by BashPros directly, except through the BashPros Concierge. You acknowledge the BashPros Platform is solely a platform through which You may contract for Services provided by Vendors independent of BashPros, and that BashPros is strictly a broker of such Services, except where You utilize the BashPros Concierge. Any decision by a User to accept the Services of any Vendor is a decision made in such User’s sole and absolute discretion. The User expressly acknowledges and agrees BashPros does not have and shall not have any responsibility or liability in connection with any Services purchased, ordered, and/or contracted for by any User through any Vendor using the BashPros Platform, except where You utilize the BashPros Concierge.
This paragraph also applies to any version of the BashPros Platform that you acquire from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, and to use of the BashPros Platform on any internet capable device. This Agreement is entered into between You and BashPros. Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) and/or Google, Inc. (“Google”) is not a party to this Agreement and shall have no obligations with respect to the BashPros Platform. BashPros, not Apple and/or Google, is solely responsible for the BashPros Platform and the content thereof as set forth hereunder. However, Apple and/or Google and Apple’s and/or Google’s subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement. Upon Your acceptance of this Agreement, Apple and/or Google shall have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against You as a third party beneficiary thereof. This Agreement incorporates by reference the Licensed Application End User License Agreement published by Apple and/or Google, for purposes of which, You are the “end-user.” In the event of a conflict in the terms of the Licensed Application End User License Agreement and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control.
Modification to the Agreement
We reserve the right to modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time, effective upon posting the amended terms on this site. If we make changes, we will notify you by, at a minimum, revising the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Agreement. You are solely responsible for regularly reviewing this Agreement and any changes thereto. Continued use of the BashPros Platform, acceptance of Services, or use of the BashPros Concierge after any such changes shall constitute Your irrevocable consent to such changes. If You do not agree to any such changes You may not use or access the BashPros Platform, obtain Services, or utilize the BashPros Concierge.
Any Services available through the BashPros Platform, including the BashPros Concierge, are available only to, and may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Use of the BashPros Platform, any Services, and/or the BashPros Concierge are not available to any persons under the age of 18 or to Users otherwise in violation or breach of this Agreement. By becoming a User and obtaining Services or utilizing the BashPros Concierge, You represent and warrant that You are at least 18 years old and that You have the right, authority and capacity to enter into this Agreement and to abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
You agree You are the sole authorized user of Your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any password provided by You or BashPros for accessing the Services or the BashPros Concierge. You are solely and fully responsible for all activity and purchases made through Your account. BashPros has no control over the use of any User's account and expressly disclaims any liability derived, relating to, in connection with, or otherwise arising therefrom. Should You suspect that any unauthorized party may be using Your password or account or You suspect any other breach of security, You must take immediate steps to secure Your account and contact Us immediately.
Term and Termination
This Agreement is required in order to use the BashPros Platform or the BashPros Concierge, or obtain any Services offered by it, and is subject to all revisions and amendments to the Agreement as BashPros may, from time to time, post for Your review. You may terminate Your account at any time via the BashPros Platform, subject to fulfillment of any outstanding payments, amounts owed, or other sums due and payable to BashPros or any Vendor for any reason. Should You choose to terminate Your account, We will send you a confirmation of the same via email to the address provided to Us in Your account. We may terminate Your participation in the BashPros Platform by removing Your Information at any time, for any or no reason, without explanation, effective upon sending email notice to You as provided above. Upon such termination, We will remove all of Your information from Our servers. However, We reserve the right to retain an archived copy of records of Your information, as required by law or for legitimate business purposes, and such archived information shall remain confidential except for the limited purposes stated herein. We maintain sole discretion to bar Your use of the BashPros Platform in the future, for any or no reason. You expressly acknowledge and agree Your obligations under this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect even if Your participation in the BashPros Platform is terminated.
Method of Payment. BashPros accepts payment for Services and the BashPros Concierge via credit card, check, and automated clearing house (“ACH”). You will be required to provide relevant information and authorization for ACH transactions. Please take note that, due to the nature of internet-based payment processing, clearance of credit card payments processed through Stripe (as described below) may be subject to delays, which may result in selected Vendors being booked by a different User for a certain date You intended to reserve (see Booking and Deposits below). By electing to make payments via credit card (as opposed to check or ACH), You agree any such delays in payment processing, or failures thereof, are not the responsibility of BashPros and BashPros shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with any issues or matters arising from delays or failures of payment processing.
Booking and Deposits. Any bookings by a User twenty-one (21) days or more prior to the event date shall require a deposit equal to twenty-five (25%) of the contract price of selected services (the “Initial Deposit”) which deposit shall become effective upon clearance of funds deposited via the User’s selected method of payment. The Initial Deposit may be canceled at the User’s discretion with a full refund, within seven (7) days of deposit with BashPros, after which the Initial Deposit shall become nonrefundable. Any bookings by the User between twenty (20) and fifteen (15) days prior to the event date will require a deposit of twenty-five (25%) percent of the contract price, which shall be non-refundable. The User is obligated to pay the remainder of the then contract price (the “Outstanding Balance”), as may have been altered by the User adding or subtracting items or services, no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the event date (the “Payment Deadline”). Any failure by the User to pay such remainder prior to the Payment Deadline shall result in the automatic cancellation of the event by BashPros with immediate notice by BashPros to all Vendors booked for the User’s event. Any bookings made fourteen (14) days or fewer prior to the event date shall be paid in full, without exception, at the time of booking. In the event of any chargeback or dispute of payment, the User shall pay a non-refundable base fee of $15.00 plus any other administrative or related fees charged to BashPros by Stripe for any reason. The User is solely responsible for payment for all Services obtained and contracted for, including any and all applicable overages and additional costs billed to the User by Vendors (or BashPros, where applicable), including, without limitation, overtime labor charges or other costs of extra performance by any Vendor, in connection with performance of the Services.
It is BashPros’ strict policy that any Initial Deposit is made effective only at such time as payment of such funds by the User are cleared, which varies depending on the User’s preferred method of payment. You are hereby advised that, due to the nature of internet-based payment processing, clearance of credit card payments processed through Stripe may be subject to delays, which may result in selected Vendors being booked by a different User for a certain date You intended. By electing to make payments via credit card (as opposed to check or ACH), You agree any such delays in payment processing, or failures thereof, are not the responsibility of BashPros and BashPros shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with any issues or matters arising from delays or failures of payment processing.
Additional Charges/Overages. You acknowledge the nature of performance of the Services (including where such Services are obtained through the BashPros Concierge) may require Vendors to provide additional Services, including, without limitation, providing additional labor or products, or remaining onsite beyond estimated time of performance of Services (collectively, “Overages”). In such event, invoicing of Overages shall be as follows:
1. The Vendor shall, no later than three (3) business days (defined as any day Monday through Friday which is not a United States federal holiday) from the calendar date after the User’s event ends (the “Submission Period”), submit to the BashPros Platform the information and sums due in connection with any Overages (a “Submission”). Failure to make a timely Submission shall constitute a waiver of compensation for Overages by the Vendor.
2. Upon receipt of a Submission, the User will be notified by Company, at which point the User shall have three (3) business days (the “Confirmation Period”) to confirm or dispute the Submission. Failure by the User to timely dispute a Submission shall constitute the User’s acceptance of the Overages indicated in the Submission.
3. In the event of a timely dispute with respect to Overages, Company shall institute an investigation and dispute resolution process to resolve such dispute. Company’s decision shall be final and binding upon the Parties.
For Your events utilizing the BashPros Concierge, You acknowledge Overages agreed to by representatives of BashPros on-site in connection with the BashPros Concierge services provided, shall not be subject to dispute under this Section and shall be paid in full by You, to the extent timely billed by Vendor/s during the Submission Period.
Refunds. The Initial Deposit shall be fully refundable up to seven (7) days after the deposit is delivered to Company. After payment of the Outstanding Balance or if an event is booked within fourteen (14) days, a cancellation by User up to seven (7) days prior to the Event date shall result in a refund to User of fifty (50%) percent of the total amount paid to Company. Any cancellations within seven (7) days of the Event will be non-refundable. In the event that a Vendor cancels performance, the User shall receivea refund in the amount applicable to the Services to be provided by that Vendor. The foregoing notwithstanding, BashPros reserves the right to adjust upward any sums refunded to the User, in its sole and absolute discretion.
Disputes. Users may dispute only Overages with BashPros (as described above), as applicable, with respect to amounts charged and/or paid, or with respect to erroneous amounts charged to or debited from the User’s preferred method of payment by BashPros. Users may not dispute matters relating to or arising out of Vendor’s performance with BashPros, such as, for example, the customer service of a Vendor or Vendor’s employee or agent, or quality of performance of Services. We take no responsibility for performance or quality of any of the Services. Vendors are solely responsible for performance and quality of the Services. Users are solely responsible for payment for all Services obtained and contracted for, including any and all applicable overages and additional costs billed to You by Vendors in connection with performance of the Services. You agree that the parties to any dispute arising out of or connected with any transaction through or Services obtained and/or performed through or via the BashPros Platform are privately and independently responsible for resolution of such disputes.
Production Fee. For all transactions conducted through the BashPros Platform, BashPros shall receive a fee (the “Production Fee”) equal to five (5%) percent of the total gross value of the Services per transaction, including any and all applicable overages and additional costs billed to You by Vendors in connection with performance of the Services.
Promotional Offers. BashPros, at its sole and absolute discretion, may make available promotional offers with different features through the BashPros Platform. These promotional offers are subject to change or cancellation at any time, unless otherwise expressed in writing by BashPros.
Facilitation of Payments. All credit card charges, as applicable, shall be facilitated through Stripe, BashPros’ third-party payment processing service, or any other similar third-party payment processing service, as may change from time to time, at BashPros’ sole discretion, without notice to you. In order for you to use Stripe’s payment processing services, you must enter into the Services Agreement (SA) with Stripe and its sponsoring bank. The SA is available at https://stripe.com/us/legal/. By accepting this Agreement, you agree that you have reviewed and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the SA. Please note that BashPros is not a party to the SA and that you, Stripe and Stripe’s sponsoring bank are the three parties to the SA and that BashPros has no obligations or liability to you under the SA. You further agree that, in the event BashPros does change its third-party payment processor, you will continue to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and the terms of service of any new payment processor.
Processor Chargeback Fee. In the event of any chargeback or dispute, You agree to pay a non-refundable base fee of $15.00 plus any other administrative or related fees charged to Us by Stripe for any reason.
Sales and Other Taxes. You are solely responsible for payment of any and all applicable Federal, State, and Local sales and use taxes as well as other such taxes and fees levied on the Services, whether obtained through the BashPros Concierge or not, by applicable jurisdictions.
BashPros maintains an errors and omissions insurance policy of up to $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 in the aggregate, annually (the “Basic Policy”). The Basic Policy is limited to coverage for errors and omissions of BashPros with respect to operation of the BashPros Platform only and does not cover potential liability arising from performance of any Services by any Vendor. Vendors are solely liable for insurance coverage pertaining to potential liability arising from performance of Services and have made representations to BashPros that they have obtained and maintained reasonable policies with respect to the Services they offer and perform. BashPros has required all Vendors to demonstrate proof of insurance as a condition of their use of the BashPros Platform, but does not, for any reason or under any circumstances, make any representations as to the quality, suitability, effectiveness, or scope of any policy obtained by any Vendor. BashPros does not procure insurance for, nor is BashPros responsible for, the policy or policies obtained by Vendors in any respect, and Users shall look only to Vendors in cases of potential liability arising from or in connection with performance of any Services. As with any insurance policy, additional terms and requirements, limitations and exclusions apply. The foregoing notwithstanding, BashPros maintains event planning-related insurance policies covering the BashPros Concierge (the “Concierge Policy”) and Services rendered by BashPros or Vendors selected by BashPros accordingly.
This is an unofficial summary of BashPros’ master insurance policy and may not always be up-to-date. None of the statements contained in this section should be interpreted as binding or as a complete representation of any specific type, kind or limit of insurance coverage and are provided for Your quick reference only. The representations made in this section are subject to change at any time without notice from BashPros to You, however BashPros will make reasonable efforts to give prompt notice with respect to any material changes thereto.
Your Information (as hereafter defined) is any information You provide, publish or display (“Post”) to the BashPros Platform or send to other Users in the registration or in any public message area (including, but not limited to the feedback section) or through any email feature (“Your Information”). Your Information will be stored on computers. You consent to Us using Your Information to create a User account that will allow You to obtain Services from Vendors and utilize the BashPros Concierge. You are solely responsible for Your Information and Your interactions with other people in the public, and We act only as a passive conduit for Your online posting of Your Information.
