PULSE SPEED DATING TERMS AND CONDITIONS
In order to participate in Pulse Speed Dating (“Pulse”) events, you must register and, in doing so, agree to be bound by these Terms of Conditions of Use (“Agreement”). As part of your registration, you must confirm that you have read these Terms and Conditions of Use and follow the instructions for registration. This Agreement sets out the legally binding terms for participation in all Pulse Speed Dating events. This Agreement may be modified by Vendara Group LLC (“Vendara Group”), the owner and provider of Pulse events.
2. PARTICIPATION IN PULSE EVENTS; MATCHES
2.1 Pulse provides the opportunity for Pulse Speed Daters to participate in events where they can meet other Pulse Speed Daters.
2.2 In order to participate in Pulse events you must have access to the Internet, as all registration takes place on the Pulse web site. Additionally, management of all “matches” is conducted by e-mail.
3. SPECIAL LIABILITY DISCLAIMERS AND RELEASES
3.1 You hereby understand and acknowledge that by using the Pulse web site and/or participating in Pulse events that your name, phone number, email address and certain other profiling information that you provide may be provided to certain other participants. Additionally, you agree to release Vendara Group and its business partners from any liability and assume the full responsibility and risk with respect to any person you meet at a Pulse event. We strongly encourage you to take the same precautions you would take in meeting any new person in order to assure your safety.
3.2 You also understand and acknowledge that Pulse events are held at venues of which neither Vendara Group nor any of its business partners have any control.
Therefore, in the event that you are injured or suffer damages in any regard at a Pulse event, you agree to release Vendara Group and its business partners from any liability with respect thereto, unless such damages result directly from the actions of any employee or agent of Vendara Group or its business partners.
3.3 All participants in Pulse events understand and acknowledge that Vendara Group provides a fun and exciting method of meeting new people. Vendara Group does not guarantee that any participant will successfully match with any other participant at a Pulse event. Additionally, Vendara Group does not guarantee that any match between participants will be successful. Furthermore, Vendara Group does not guarantee that participation in Pulse events will result in actual dates.
4. PULSE RESCHEDULING/REFUND POLICY
The success of Pulse events depends upon participant attendance. Therefore, if you are unable to attend the event for which you have registered, you may reschedule your reservation if your request to do so is submitted no later seven business days prior to the date of the event. If your request to reschedule is submitted less than seven business days prior to the date of the event, we reserve the right, based on availability, not to reschedule you for another Pulse event. However, we do understand that last minute emergencies happen so we will do everything in our power to accommodate your request.
If your rescheduling request meets our policy guidelines, there will be a $10 non-refundable change fee that will be applied to your credit card. You will be issued a code to allow you to RSVP for another Pulse event of your choosing, subject to availability. Please be aware that you will only be allowed to reschedule one time per reservation and we do not issue refunds on any reservations.
5. PULSE EVENT CANCELLATIONS
Although we absolutely hate to do it, occasionally, due to reasons beyond our control, we may have to cancel an event for which you have registered. To avoid showing up for an event that has been cancelled, please check the Pulse website AND your email the day before and day of the event. This is how we will notify you of a cancellation. In the event of a cancellation, you will have two choices:
1) Sign up for a future Pulse event.
2) Receive a full refund.
It’s up to you, and the email we’ll send you will provide you with all the instructions for how to choose your option.
Had an event cancelled on you but didn’t get our email? Your spam filter may be blocking our emails. Either way, please get in touch with us right away by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your full name, the email address you used for Pulse, and the date of the event that was cancelled.
6. MEDIA AUTHORIZATION AND RELEASE
6.1 Vendara Group, along with certain permitted third parties including, without limitation, representatives of the television, radio, print and online media, may photograph and/or make audio/video recordings of any Pulse event.
