Contract & Standard Terms
1. Contract Terms
1.1 We agree to provide our events and extended services to you on the following terms. These constitute a contract between you and us and must be read together with any other documents explicitly agreed to be part of this contract. Any other terms and conditions contained in any other document are excluded unless their inclusion is expressly agreed in writing. 1.2 In these terms and conditions: 1.2.1 “we” and “us” means BucketRace Limited a company registered in
England under number 11308908 and whose registered office is at 30 Park View Road, London, W52JB. 1.2.2 ”events and extended services” means the services and goods that you have ordered from us and we have agreed to provide.
2.1 You must pay for your events and extended services in advance. In the event of late payment we reserve the right to charge interest on the outstanding
balance at the Statutory Rate. We reserve the right to suspend or cancel the events and extended services if any payment is overdue. 2.2 If we suspend or cancel any events and extended services and the reason for the suspension or cancellation is not your fault, we will aim to find an alternative solution or a refund will be issued. Providing a refund will be our sole liability to you if we suspend or cancel any events and extended services. 2.3 A 50% non-refundable deposit is needed to secure your date.
3. Your Obligations
You agree that you: 3.1 will ensure that you and those who wish to receive the benefit of our events and extended services co-operate with you and us in relation to it and do not engage in unacceptable behaviour. (Unacceptable behaviour shall include (a) negligent or reckless behaviour which could cause distress or injury to other participants or third parties (b) damage to property (c) participation whilst under the influence of drink or illegal drugs and (d) breaking the law) and 3.2 will promptly give us such information as we may reasonably request for the proper and safe delivery of the events and extended services.
4. Safety of the Participants (events run by you not us) Where the events and extended services are run by you (rather than us) you agree that you will (1) Take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of the participants e.g. by briefing them fully before the event and monitoring their participation during the event, and (2) Indemnify us against any claim that a participant may make against us (obviously such indemnity will not apply where we, rather than you, run the event).
5. Additional Work
Any charges that we agree with you are for the events and extended services that we agree at that time. If we are asked to carry out additional work or your instructions to us change we reserve the right to make an additional charge.
6.1 Either we or you shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement immediately by written notice to the other if the other commits any material breach of this Agreement and, in the case of a breach capable of remedy, fails to remedy it within 7 days after receipt of a written notice giving full details of the breach and requiring it to be remedied. 6.2 Either of us can also terminate this Agreement if the other is the subject of a bankruptcy order or the other becomes insolvent or make any arrangement or composition with, or an assignment for the benefit of, its creditors or if any of its assets are the subject of any form of seizure. If either of us is a company, the other can terminate this contract immediately if the first party goes into liquidation, either voluntary or compulsory, or if a receiver or administrative receiver or administrator is appointed (or the equivalent in any other jurisdiction).
7.1 We warrant to you that we will seek to supply our events and extended services with reasonable skill and care. We accept liability for our own
negligence, but only to the extent stated in this clause. 7.2 Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as restricting or excluding
our liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or for fraud. 7.3 Subject to clause 7.2, our liability to you under this Agreement shall not
exceed cost of the events and extended services. 7.4 Subject to sub-clauses 7.2 and 7.3 we shall be liable to you in respect of all direct loss or damage caused by our acts or omissions and those of our employees, agents or sub-contractors, other than Excluded Loss. In this clause the expression “Excluded Loss” means all special loss (whether or not the possibility of such loss arising on a particular breach of contract or duty has been brought to our attention at the time of making this contract) and loss, corruption or destruction of data or loss of profits, business or anticipated savings, whether incurred directly or indirectly, or any indirect or consequential damage whatever, either in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise. 7.5 We will provide you with the requirements needed to ensure the successful delivery of our products and services, as a basic requirement for our virtual events, we ask that our clients ensure they have x2 smart devices, that any laptop and/or desktop computers have 4GB of ram and over, and that you have an internet speed of 10 megabits per second or more. 7.6 We will not be held liable for user error. Our technical support team will do their best to ensure that players have the smoothest experience possible; however, if players don't listen and follow the instructions, they may encounter technical difficulties. 7.7 Before your event, we will provide you with the set-up instructions needed. If you do not set up and check your devices in advance, you may not be able to play.
