We accept the following forms of payment:
You agree to provide current, complete, and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases. You further agree to promptly update account and payment information, including email address, payment method, and payment card expiration date, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. We may change prices at any time. All payments shall be in U.S. dollars.
You agree to pay all charges or fees at the prices set for your Gathr, and you authorize us to charge your chosen payment provider for any such amounts upon making your purchase. If your Gathr is subject to recurring charges, then you consent to our charging your payment method on a recurring basis without requiring your prior approval for each recurring charge, until you notify us of your cancellation. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing, even if we have already requested or received payment. We also reserve the right to refuse any order placed.
Cancellations & Rescheduling
You can cancel your Gathr at any time 24 hours before your event to receive a full refund with pros who have not set their own cancellation and rescheduling parameters. We cannot issue full refunds with cancellations after the 24 hour window leading up to your event. Cancellations and rescheduling otherwise is set by the pro and will be described in the class description. Some pros may need to get materials ahead of time which would require more advanced notice for any sort of cancellation and/or rescheduling.
Upon booking, your full name, list of guests, and location of your Gathr will be provided to our vendor(s). We will convey any questions you have to each to each individual vendor if we cannot answer it ourselves. If the vendor you’ve hired gives us permission to share their contact information, we will share that with you to help streamline communication. We protect your privacy and privacy of our vendors and will not share any contact information without your consent. For any questions regarding your Gathr, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security Measures for Hosts
We run a public check and receive instant reports on each individual through public State and Federal criminal records. Running background checks may help us identify past criminal conduct where records are available, they have constraints. The public checks we run do not guarantee that all past criminal offenses has been recognized or that an individual won’t commit an offense in the future.
A. The scope of our search is limited
We only run checks on Contractors when we have at least the user’s first and last name plus date of birth. In addition, we are not conducting checks on additional help the Contractor hires. The Contractor is held responsible at its own expense on each of its employees or contractors engaged in providing services prior to the services being rendered.
While we aim to run checks periodically on active vendors, we may conduct these checks only once per vendor. We cannot guarantee that Contractors who provided us personal information gave us correct information that is accurate or belongs to them.
Lastly, we do not always check every state and county courthouse records and or other public databases.
B. Search results may be incomplete
The databases we search are not necessarily complete, and may not include reports of prior criminal activity. For example, not all criminal records are public in each state, not all criminal records are captured by the services we use, and convictions committed outside the United States where the check is run may not be included. Additionally, as determined by law, public records databases may be limited to records that took place a number of years back (for example, prior 7 years in certain U.S. states). We cannot ensure that the concise background checks we perform will identify all past criminal offenses or sex offender registrations by our listed vendors. In conclusion, guests and hosts should not rely solely on another user’s completion of a check as a full proof guarantee that the hired Contractor has no criminal history or other notable red flags.
C. Search results do not guarantee safety
Overall, while we aim to create vetting tools that will be useful to help protect our users and our community, public databases don’t always identify a Contractor’s past offenses and cannot guarantee that an individual won’t break the law in the future. Also, they are never a guarantee of safety or safer than any unknown person or stranger you may come across in any other way.
Transactions Involving Alcohol
You may have the option to book an experience with a licensed and professional server, bartender, mixologist, or wine sommelier including alcohol. You agree that you will comply with all applicable laws and not cause Gathr any applicable laws. You agree that you are of legal drinking age for purchasing, possessing, and consuming alcohol (i.e., 21 years of age or older in the United States). You agree that, upon serving, the recipient will provide valid government-issued identification proving their age to the service provider and/or bartender delivering the alcohol products. You agree that if any applicable legal requirements for serving alcohol are not met, Gathr reserves the right to cancel the alcohol-related portion of your order and/or Gathr experience.
