 Welcome to the Tattle User Agreement (the “Agreement”). This Agreement is between TATTLE INC. (“Tattle”, “us”, “we” or “our”), the owner and operator of www.tattle.com (the “Site”) and the Tattle mobile application (“Apps”), and you (“you” or “your” or “user(s)”), a user of the Site and/or Apps (together, the “Services”). This Agreement governs your access and use of the Services. This Agreement incorporates by reference the Privacy Policy posted by us on our Site (the “Privacy Policy”), and any other policies, which may include return and cancellation policies, fee and booking policies, and standards and guidelines, such as Tattle’s code of conduct, posted by us on our Site from time to time and expressly referencing this Agreement. PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. THIS AGREEMENT CONSTITUTES A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND TATTLE AND IS DEEMED ACCEPTED BY YOU UPON YOUR FIRST ACCESS, USE OR DOWNLOAD OF ANY OF THE SERVICES.

2. Overview of Services 

Tattle operates an online marketplace which facilitates transactions directly among users who may either choose to book or host experiences (the “Experience(s)”), whereby local hosts (the “Host(s)”) offer to provide guided experiences, whether it be a unique activity or destination, to other users who are interested in booking such experiences (the “Guest(s)”). Users may also share information, recommendations, reviews and photographs about local attractions, restaurants, activities and the Experiences. Where users make or accept Experience bookings, the actual contract for sale is directly between the Host and Guest. Tattle is not a seller of goods, services or information, and is not a traditional auctioneer, nor does Tattle become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between users.   While we may provide pricing, listing, and other guidance in our Services, such guidance is solely informational, and you may decide to follow it or not. In addition, while we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes between users, Tattle has no control over and does not guarantee: (i) the existence, quality, safety, legality, or suitability of any Experience; (ii) the truth or accuracy of users’ content or Experience descriptions, ratings, reviews or other content posted by users; or (iii) the performance or conduct of any user. Tattle does not certify, endorse or guarantee any user or Experience. You understand that you should exercise due care and diligence when assessing whether to participate in an Experience and that your use of the Services is at your sole risk and liability. While Tattle prohibits conduct and use of the Services that is in violation of any of the terms contained herein, you understand and agree that Tattle cannot be responsible for the content posted on the Services. Tattle does not pre-screen any user or user content, but Tattle and its designees have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or remove any such content that is available via the Services. As such, you may be exposed to materials that is in violation of these terms. You are solely responsible for all content posted and activity that occurs under your account. You agree that your use of the Services is at your own risk and liability, and that you are solely responsible for ensuring your actions comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. Hosts are solely responsible for identifying and obtaining any required licenses, permits or registrations for any Experiences they offer. You further agree that Tattle is released of any liability in connection with same.

8. Fees and Payment

Any applicable Service Fee (including any applicable taxes) will be included in the Booking Fee presented to Guests  prior to booking an Experience. Tattle reserves the right to change the Service Fee at any time and will provide users with adequate notice of any change to the Service Fee before such change becomes effective. You are responsible for paying any Service Fee that you owe to Tattle, and you acknowledge that the Payment Processor (as defined below) is to release the applicable Experience Fee (as defined below) and Service Fee to Tattle, who will then release the Experience Fee to the Host following completion of the Experience and in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Except as otherwise provided on the Services, the Service Fee is non-refundable. We use third party payment processors in order to facilitate Service Fee payments (the “Payment Processor”). We disclaim any and all liability that may result from your use of the Payment Processor and make no representation, warranty or guarantee with regards to the Payment Processor or their actions. Your activity on the Payment Processor’s sites or applications is governed by such Payment Processors terms and conditions. Any claim and dispute you may have in connection with Service Fees must be solely directed to such applicable Payment Processor, and you hereby release Tattle, and its affiliates, and each of their officers, directors, employees and agents, from any and all claims, actions, demands or losses in connection with same. Tattle reserves the right to instruct the Payment Processor to restrict access to funds in your Payment Processor account based on certain factors, including, but not limited to, complaints received by Guests based on your performance as a Host, or your failure to comply with these terms or our code of conduct. 

9. Host Terms 

When posting an Experience on the Services you are responsible for and must (i) provide complete and accurate information about the Experience (which may include a description, location, and available dates and times); (ii) disclose any restrictions and requirements that apply to the experience (such as minimum age, proficiency, or fitness requirements); and (iii) provide any other relevant information as may be requested by Tattle. It is your responsibility to keep your Experience listing, including availability, up-to-date at all times. It is your sole responsibility for setting a price (including any applicable taxes) for each Experience you choose to host (the “Experience Fee”). Once an Guest requests a booking of your Experience, you may not request that the Guest pay a higher price than what is set out in the booking request. You are responsible for performing all actions reasonably necessary to complete any contract for sale you enter into using the Services. Once you have accepted an Experience booking, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with the Guest and are required to provide the Experience services as described in your Experience listing at the time the booking request was made. You also acknowledge and agree that Tattle will include the Service Fee, and an amount equal to the applicable Payment Processor fees, in the total Booking Fee presented to Guests at the time of booking, and that the Service Fee shall be paid by the Payment Processor to Tattle. As a Host, you are solely responsible for determining your obligation to report, collect, or remit any applicable sales, income or other taxes, as well as for ensuring compliance with any applicable laws, rules, or regulations that may apply to your use of the Services or Experience host. Terms contained in your Experience description must not conflict with this Agreement or any relevant cancellation or refund policy applicable to your Experience.   We recommend Hosts obtain appropriate insurance with respect to the Experiences they will be hosting. You further agree that although we may provide template waiver forms for your use and information, your use of such forms is at your own risk and you understand that Tattle makes no guarantees or warranties with respect to the fitness or suitability of these waivers. It is your responsibility and remains up to you to ensure Guests have signed any applicable waiver prior to commencing the Experience. 

10. Guest Terms 

Subject to meeting any requirements of Tattle and/or the Host, you, as an Guest, will be able to book Experiences through the Services. You will be charged a booking fee, to be paid through the Payment Processor, which shall include the Experience Fee, any applicable Service Fee and an amount equal to the applicable Payment Processor fees (the “Booking Fee”). The Booking Fee will be brought to your attention prior to booking an Experience. You agree that you will pay all applicable Booking Fees for any Experience booking requested by your account. Once you receive confirmation of your booking through the Services, you will be entering into a legally binding contract with the Host, subject to any additional terms and conditions that are applicable to the Experience you have booked, including any applicable cancellation or refund policy and any rules and restrictions set out in the Experience listing. You are aware that the Host may require that Guests sign a waiver, and that you may therefore be required to sign a waiver prior to either booking or commencement of the Experience. Any applicable Service Fee will be collected by the Payment Processor at either the time of the booking request or upon the Host’s confirmation, pursuant to and subject to any agreed upon payment terms. You agree that it is your responsibility to read and review the full Experience description and listing before submitting a booking request, and that you will be legally required to commit to purchase the Experience once the booking has been accepted. You should carefully review the description of each Experience to ensure you and any guests you are booking for meet the minimum requirements set by the Host. You may, at your sole discretion, disclose any information to the Host that you think may impact your ability to take part in the experience or any conditions that may be of concern. You are responsible for ensuring that you are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to your participation in the Experience. If you are booking Experiences on behalf of other guests, you are responsible for ensuring each guest meets any applicable requirements set by the Host and is made aware of and agrees to these Terms and any other terms, conditions, rules and restrictions set by the Host. If you are booking an Experience on behalf of a minor, you represent and warrant that you are legally authorized to do so, and that you are aware minors may only participate in an Experience if accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them. 

11. Complaints, Cancellations and Refunds 

You agree that all sales are subject to the terms of Tattle’s refund or cancellation policies in place and made available to you at the time of booking. If a Host did not provide the Experience as described in the Experience listing or you believe the Host was in breach of our code of conduct please contact us within twenty-four (24) hours of the scheduled Experience time to allow us the opportunity to investigate your complaint. Tattle seeks to ensure all Experiences are provided in compliance with this Agreement and our code of conduct, and any such decisions or outcomes made by Tattle with respect to such a complaint shall be final, and in no event will Tattle be held liable to you in any way relating to Tattle’s decision to dismiss or sustain a complaint, or the decision made with respect to a sustained complaint. 

12. Ratings and Reviews 

Users may leave each other public reviews and ratings following completion of an Experience. These reviews and ratings reflect the opinion of the individual user and not of Tattle, nor are they verified by Tattle for accuracy. You therefore acknowledge that these reviews and ratings may be misleading, although we require users to provide accurate reviews and ratings which do not contain offensive language. 

13. Term and Termination

This Agreement will enure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties to this Agreement and their respective successors, heirs and permitted assigns.
