Last Updated: 24-03-2017
Welcome to Tabl – We don’t love the legalese, but we’ve put together what we hope are simplified and clear version of Terms and Conditions and Policies (or as simplified as lawyers can be!) to best enable and protect the interests of:
- our community of users and buyers (the “Customers”), and
- food and drink producers and hosts of food and drink events (the “Vendors”).
What is Tabl?
Tabl is an online marketplace for the sale and purchase of food and drink, food and drink-related products, and experiences.
Tabl Ltd and/or its affiliates ("Tabl") make available to you this website, software, and other information, products and services when you visit Tabl.com, including associated sites linked thereto by Tabl (collectively, "Site"), use Tabl products and services, or use software provided by Tabl in connection with any of the foregoing (collectively, "Services")
What does this mean for you?
As a marketplace, Tabl itself does not own or sell the items listed at the Site or otherwise made available through the Services.
Tabl also does not pre-screen its users or any information provided by its users. Thus, the actual selling and buying transactions are directly between the Vendor and Customers, the users of Tabl; Tabl provides an online venue to facilitate such transactions, and is not responsible for any disputes between the Vendors and Customers; Vendors and Customers shall only look to each other for any liabilities arising from such transactions.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that Tabl has no control over, cannot, and does not in any way guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items offered in this online marketplace, the truth or accuracy of user's' content or listings, the ability of sellers to sell items, the ability of buyers to pay for items, or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item. You further acknowledge and agree that you use the Services at your own risk, and that neither you nor your representative will go after Tabl, its directors, officers, employees, contractors, consultants, agents, successors or assigns for any claims relating to the Services.
Using the Services - What our entire Community agrees to
While accessing or otherwise using the Services, you agree not to:

- post or list content or items in inappropriate categories or areas, or post content unrelated to a listing;
- list for sale illegal, counterfeit, or stolen items, or items that pose possible health risks to consumers and therefore subject to a recall, or items that have otherwise been identified by various state or federal authority as unfit for sale or distribution, or other unsafe items;
- list any item on Tabl, or consummate any transaction that was initiated using the Services, that could cause Tabl to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation, or that violate these Terms;

- take any action that may undermine the feedback or ratings systems;
- fail to pay for items or experiences purchased by you;

- fail to obtain and/or maintain all authorisations, approvals, consents, licenses or permits from the relevant authorities, which are required to perform your obligations under these Terms under all applicable laws and regulations;

- otherwise violate your obligations under this Agreement, or any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation, including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, antidiscrimination or false advertising.
Tabl, at its sole discretion, may cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time or modify or discontinue the Services at any time with or without notice.
Without limiting any other remedies available to it, Tabl may, at its sole discretion, limit, suspend, or terminate the Services and user accounts, restrict or prohibit access to, and your activities on, the Services, delay or remove hosted content, remove any special status associated with the account, reduce or eliminate any discounts, and take technical and legal steps to keep you from using our Services if:

Reservations and Bookings Registered users may use the Site to place an online booking request (“Booking Request”) for any available Events listed. A single Booking Request may be made for multiple places at an individual event, subject to availability and the Host’s policy on group bookings. Hosts may determine their own group booking policy based upon such factors as the nature of the Event, the atmosphere and dynamic they wish to create and their personal preferences. As part of a Booking Request, you will be invited to register payment for your Event together with any Fees and Charges and applicable taxes where relevant (the “Total Charges”). You will be directed to make payment through our digital payment partner. Once payment has been authorised, we will automatically notify the Host of your request. The Host will respond to your request as efficiently as possible, usually within an expected 24 hours and, if your request is successful, we will confirm your booking by email to your registered address on the Host’s behalf (“Booking Confirmation”).

Your payment or credit card pre-authorisation will be deducted and held by us until at least 24 hours following the Booked Event. Unless a refund is due under these Terms, payment minus any applicable fees and charges due to us (defined below), will be transferred to the relevant Host after the Event has taken place. If your Booking Request is declined by the Host, your payment will be refunded, or the preauthorisation released, in full and you will incur no charges. Should you have questions about a Listed Event, you may use the messaging feature to contact a Host to seek clarification in advance of making a Booking Request. In particular, should you or one of your party have specific allergies, medical conditions, religious beliefs or other food preferences (eg vegetarianism) that may impact some or all of the Event’s suitability, you are responsible for making the Host aware prior to your booking request and to satisfy yourself accordingly before submitting your Booking Request. The Host may offer to substitute one or more dishes or the Guest may accept that part of the meal is unsuitable. The Event price as advertised is nonetheless fixed. After receiving or accepting a Booking Request, a Host may not make any material changes to the Event as advertised, except to provide further and more detailed particulars where appropriate. By accepting a Booking Request, the Host is entering a legal agreement with the Guest to host them at the Listed Event in accordance with these Terms, and the Guest agrees to participate in the Listed Event in accordance with these Terms. The Host is solely responsible for honouring any confirmed bookings and both Host and Guest acknowledge and agree that Tabl is not a party to such agreements, will not be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations, Tabl disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. A photographer may be in attendance at some Tabl events and by attending an event you agree that images taken of you may be used on the website and across our digital channels.
As a Customer, by making a Booking Request, you agree to pay to Tabl the Total Charges due for such Booking. You hereby authorise the collection of such amounts by charging the credit or debit card you provide, either directly by us or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor. You understand and agree that we reserve the right, on behalf of the Host and at our sole discretion, to either obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Charges or to charge your credit card a nominal amount, not greater than one pound (or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting) to verify your credit card. Once your booking is confirmed, we will collect the Total Charges in accordance with these Terms.
C.2 Limitation of our Liability to Customer
If we fail to comply with these Site Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage a Customer suffers that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and the Customer knew it might happen.
As noted in clause 8 above, we only supply the Site for domestic and private use. If a Customer uses the Site for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to the Customer for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
