As a Member you agree not to do anything to create a false impression that you are endorsed by, partnering with, or acting on behalf of or for the benefit of GADP, including by inappropriately using any GADP trademark or branding.
2. Modification of Terms
GADP reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the Website or Services or to modify these Terms, including the Booking Fees, at any time and without prior notice. We will either post the modification on the Website or otherwise provide you with notice of the modification, if there are changes to the Terms. We will also update the “Last Updated” at the beginning of these Terms. By continuing to access or use the Website or Services after we have posted a modification on the Website or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Website and Services.

3.2 GADP may make access to and use of the Website and Services, or certain areas or features of the Website, subject to certain conditions or requirements, such as completing a verification process or meeting specific quality or eligibility criteria.
4. Scope of GADP Services
4.1 The Website and Services can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of food events, but not restricted and not limited only to food-specific events (“Events”). GADP is designed to enable Users to offer their food and beverage and accessible facilities (such as their home, village hall or such like) as hosts (“Host/s”) and allowing other Users to participate in Events of such Hosts as guests (“Guest/s”). You may view the Events as an unregistered visitor to the Website and Services; however, if you wish to book an Event or create an Event Listing, you must first register to create a GADP Account (defined below).
4.2 GADP is an online platform to help re-build the community by providing, through related technology, for Members to connect online and arrange for bookings of or participate in offline Events directly with each other. GADP is not an owner or operator of events or restaurants, nor is it a provider of food and beverage, and GADP does not own, sell, resell, provide and/ or manage the provision of food and beverage or events. Unless explicitly specified otherwise in the GADP platform, GADP’s responsibilities are limited to facilitating the availability of the Website and Services.
4.3 GADP cannot and does not control the content contained in any listings and the accuracy, safety, legality or suitability of any Events or food and beverage descriptions. GADP is not responsible for and disclaims any and all liability related to any and all listings, Events and/ or food and beverage descriptions. Accordingly, any bookings will be made or accepted at the Member’s own risk.
4.4 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, GADP has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Events, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Event descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content, or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. GADP does not endorse any Member or Host Event(s).
4.5 To promote GADP and to increase the exposure of Event(s) to potential Guests, Events and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements in accordance with Section 7.
4.6 GADP may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. GADP is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by GADP of such Third-Party Services.
4.7 Some areas of the Website and Services implement Google Maps/Earth mapping services, including Google Maps API(s). Your use of Google Maps/Earth is subject to the Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service.
4.8 GADP is not responsible for outages or disruptions of the Internet and telecommunications infrastructure which are beyond our control and can lead to interruptions in the availability of GADP. GADP may, temporarily and under consideration of the Members’ legitimate interests (e.g. by providing prior notice), restrict the availability of the Website or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Website. Section 17 (Liability) remains unaffected. GADP may improve, enhance and modify the Website and introduce new Services from time to time. GADP will provide notice to Members of any changes to the Services, unless such changes are of minor nature without having a material effect on the parties’ contractual obligations.
5. Account Registration
5.1 GADP has no control over the conduct of any Hosts, Guests or any other User and disclaims all liability relating to this regard. Users are recommended to carefully and thoroughly examine and check with their respective Guests and Hosts all necessary details related to their Event(s) and Booking(s) prior to attending any Event.
5.2 In order to access and use certain features of the Website and its Services, such as to book or create an Event(s), you must register to create an account (“GADP Account”) and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Website or as described in this section. If you are registering a GADP Account for a business, organisation or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to legally bind that entity and grant us all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms.
5.3 GADP does not pre-screen users and makes no attempt to confirm, and does not confirm, Users’ identity. GADP does not investigate any User’s reputation, conduct, morality, criminal background or verify the information that any user submits to the Website. We do not endorse any persons who use or register for the Services, whether as Guests or Hosts, or any Events listed on the Website. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others whom you may contact or who may contact you by means of the Website. You agree to exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with other Users. GADP encourages you to review your Hosts’ profile pages and read reviews and feedback from other Users. You may also wish to consider using a third-party service that provides additional user verification.
5.4 You can register a GADP Account using an email address and creating a password, or through your account with certain third-party social networking services, including, but not limited to, Facebook (“SNS Account”). You have the ability to disable the connection between your GADP Account and your SNS Account at any time, by accessing the “Settings” section of the Website.
5.5 You may not have more than one (1) active GADP Account. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your GADP Account to another party. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. GADP reserves the right to suspend or terminate your GADP Account and your access to the Website and Services if you create more than one (1) GADP Account, or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, fraudulent, not current or incomplete.
5.6 You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your GADP Account credentials and may not disclose your credentials to any third party. You must immediately notify GADP if you know or have any reason to suspect that your credentials have been lost, stolen, misappropriated, or otherwise compromised or in case of any actual or suspected unauthorized use of your GADP Account. You are liable for any and all activities conducted through your GADP Account, unless such activities are not authorised by you and you are not otherwise negligent (such as failing to report the unauthorised use or loss of your credentials).
6. No Endorsement
6.1 Any references in the Website or Services to a Member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. User verification on the Internet is difficult and we do not assume any responsibility for the confirmation of any Member’s identity. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by GADP about any Member, including of the Member’s identity and whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Website or Services. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to participate in an Event, accept a booking request from a Guest, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person.
6.2 By using the Website or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from GADP with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Website and Services regarding any bookings or Event Listing made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Host against GADP regarding the remittance of payments received from a Guest by GADP on behalf of a Host, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.
7. Member Content
7.1 GADP may enable Members to (i) create, upload, post, send, receive and store content, such as text, photos, audio or other materials and information on or through the Website and its Services (“Member Content”); and (ii) access and view Member Content and any content that GADP itself makes available on or through the Website and Services, including proprietary GADP content and any content licensed or authorised for use by or through GADP from a third party (“GADP Content” and together with Member Content, “Collective Content”).
7.2 The GADP Website and Services, GADP Content, and Member Content may in its entirety or in part be protected by copyright, trademark, and/or other laws of the United Kingdom. You acknowledge and agree that the Website and its Services and GADP Content, including all associated intellectual property rights, are the exclusive property of GADP and/or its licensors or authorising third-parties. You will not remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Website and Services, GADP Content or Member Content. All trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, and any other source identifiers of GADP used on or in connection with the Website and its Services and GADP Content are trademarks or registered trademarks of GADP in the United Kingdom and abroad.

7.3 You will not use, copy, adapt, modify, prepare derivative works of, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, broadcast or otherwise exploit the GADP Website and Services or Collective Content, except to the extent you are the legal owner of certain Member Content or as expressly permitted in these Terms. No licenses or rights are granted to you by implication or otherwise under any intellectual property rights owned or controlled by GADP or its licensors, except for the licenses and rights expressly granted in these Terms.
7.6 You are solely responsible for all Member Content that you make available on or through the GADP Website and Services. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all Member Content that you make available on or through the GADP Website and its Services or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases that are necessary to grant to GADP the rights in and to such Member Content, as contemplated under these Terms; and (ii) neither the Member Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission or transmittal of the Member Content or GADP’s use of the Member Content (or any portion thereof) as contemplated under these Terms will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
7.7 You will not post, upload, publish, submit or transmit any Member Content that: (i) is fraudulent, false, misleading (directly or by omission or failure to update information) or deceptive; (ii) is defamatory, libellous, obscene, pornographic, vulgar or offensive; (iii) promotes discrimination, bigotry, racism, hatred, harassment or harm against any individual or group; (iv) is violent or threatening or promotes violence or actions that are threatening to any other person or animal; (v) promotes illegal or harmful activities or substances; or (vi) violates GADP Guidelines and/or Policies. GADP may remove or disable access to any Member Content that is in violation of applicable law, these Terms or GADP’s Guidelines or Policies, or otherwise may be harmful or objectionable to GADP, its Members, third parties, or property. Where GADP removes or disables Member Content, GADP will notify a Member and provide the reasons for such a measure, unless such notification would (i) prevent or impede the detection or prevention of fraud or other illegal activities, (ii) harm the legitimate interests of other Members or third parties, or (ii) contravene applicable laws. You may appeal such a decision by contacting our Customer Services.
7.8 GADP respects copyright law and expects its Members to do the same. If you believe that any content on the GADP Website and Services infringes copyrights you own, please notify us.
8. Event Listings
8.1 As a Member, you may create an Event(s). When creating an Event through the GADP Website and Services, you must (i) provide complete and accurate information about your Event(s) (such as Event description, location, time, capacity and calendar availability), (ii) disclose any deficiencies, restrictions (such as food allergen information, religious and dietary restrictions) and requirements that apply (such as any age range, shared interests and background) and (iii) provide any other pertinent information requested by GADP (such as proportion of donation to charity, charity chosen, pricing). You are responsible for keeping your Event(s) information (including food allergen information, religious and dietary restrictions) up-to-date at all times.
8.2 In order to be featured in Event Listings via the Website and Services, all Events must have valid physical addresses. An advertisement poster will be created by the Website based on the information you provide in your Event Listing. The Poster and Event(s) (“Listings”) will be made publicly available via the Website and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Event via the Website and Services based upon the information provided in your Listings. You understand and agree that once a Guest requests a booking of your Event, you may not request the Guest to pay a higher price than in the booking request.
8.3 GADP reserves the right to require that Listings have a minimum number of pictures or animations (collectively, “Images”) of a certain format, size and resolution.
8.4 You agree and acknowledge that you alone are responsible for any and all Listings and Content you post. Accordingly, you represent that any Listing you post and the booking of, or a Guest’s attendance at, an Event in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as homeowners association, halls, lease or rental agreements, and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws (such as zoning laws and laws governing rentals of residential, commercial and other properties), Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Event included in a Listing you post (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations), and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that GADP assumes no responsibility for a Host’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. GADP reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that GADP, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Website, or Services.
8.5 Hosts may have to register, get a permit or obtain a license before providing certain Host Events (such as preparing food or serving alcohol). Host are alone responsible for identifying and obtaining any required licenses, permits, or registrations for any Events they offer. Certain types of Event Listings (such as those not in compliance with the law) may be prohibited altogether. Penalties may include fines or other enforcement. If you have questions about how local laws apply to your Listing(s) and Host Events on GADP, you should always seek legal guidance.
8.6 As a Member, you understand and agree that GADP does not act as an insurer, your contracting agent or Food Safety Authority. If a Guest requests a booking of your Event and attends, any agreement you enter into with such Guest is between you and the Guest and GADP is not a party to it.
8.7 GADP recommends that Hosts obtain appropriate insurance for their Events. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your home or location of event carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Guests (and the individuals the Guests invites to the Event, if applicable) while at your home or location of event.
8.8 Hosts are solely responsible to determine the applicable taxes and are required to comply with the applicable tax law and pay any taxes including VAT or other withholding and personal or corporate income taxes imposed and levied in connection with bookings made, of their respective Events via GADP or the payment thereof and they represent and warrant that they will pay such taxes in time and in compliance with the applicable tax law. Note that failing to pay such taxes, as ordered by applicable tax law or to comply with any provisions the applicable tax law may prevent such Hosts from continuing publishing their Events on GADP.
8.9 The placement and ranking of Event Listings in search results on the GADP Website and Services may vary and depend on a variety of factors, such as User search parameters and preferences, Host requirements, price, Reviews and Feedback, and/ or ease of booking.
8.10 When you accept or have pre-approved a booking request by a Guest, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with the Guest and are required to provide your Host Service(s) to the Guest as described in your Listing when the booking request is made.
9.1 If you choose to Co-Host an Event on GADP, one of the Hosts (“Lead Host”) must be a registered and verified Member on the Website. Any agreement formed between the Lead Host and Co-Host is outside of those with GADP, and GADP is not liable in relation to any agreements that the Host and co-Host may have, these agreements may not conflict with GADP Terms, or any other Policies applicable to your Event.
9.2 Hosts should exercise due diligence and care when deciding who to Co-Host with. Registered Lead Hosts are responsible and liable for any and all Event Listings and Member Content published on GADP. Further, Lead Hosts remain responsible and liable for their own acts and omissions, including, but not limited to, conduct that causes harm or damage to the Co-Host(s). The Lead Host is wholly responsible and liable for third party claims, including Guest claims, arising from the acts and omissions of the other person as related to hosting activities, communications with Guests, and the provision of any Co-Host Events.
9.3 The Lead Host acknowledges that the Co-hosting relationship will terminate in the event that GADP (i) terminates the Co-Host Event or (ii) terminates the Co-Host’s participation in the Event. The Lead Host will remain responsible for all of the Co-Host’s actions prior to the Event, including the responsibility to fulfill any pending or future Events initiated prior to the termination.
9.4 A Co-Host will not be reviewed by Guests. Instead, the Lead Host of such Event(s) will be reviewed by Guests (including potentially on the basis of the Co-Host’s conduct and performance). Hosts acknowledge that Reviews and Ratings from Guests for their Event(s) may be impacted by a Co-Host’s conduct and performance.
10.1 You should carefully review the description and details of any Event Listing you intend to book, to ensure you (and any additional guests you are booking for) meet any minimum age or other requirements which the Host has specified in their Event Listing. At your sole discretion you may want to inform the Host of any medical or physical conditions, or other circumstances that may impact your and any additional guest’s ability to participate/ attend any Event. In addition, certain laws, like the minimum legal drinking age in the location of the Event may also apply. You are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to your attending an Event.
10.2 Before and during an Event you must at all times adhere to the Hosts’ instructions.
10.3 Subject to meeting any requirements (such as completing any verification processes) set by GADP and/ or the Host, you can book ticket(s) to an Event available on the GADP Website and Services by following the respective booking process. The Host sets the Event Ticket Price, chooses the Charity and the Charity’s portion of the Ticket Price. The Host’s portion plus the Host-specified Charity’s portion of the Ticket Price (“Ticket Price”), Booking Fee and any applicable Taxes (collectively, “Total Ticket Price”) will be presented to you prior to booking ticket(s) to an Event. You agree to pay the Total Ticket Price for any booking requested in connection with your GADP Account.
10.4 Upon receipt of a booking confirmation from GADP, a legally binding agreement is formed between you and your Host, subject to any additional terms and conditions of the Host that apply, such as any rules and restrictions specified in the Event Listing. PayPal will collect the Total Ticket Price at the time of the booking request or upon the Host’s confirmation.
10.5 If you book ticket(s) on behalf of additional Guests, you are required to ensure that every additional Guest meets any requirements set by the Host, and is made aware of and agrees to these Terms and any terms and conditions, rules and restrictions set by the Host. You may not bring any additional individuals to an Event unless such an individual was added by you as an additional Guest during the booking process on the GADP Website and Services. If you are booking for an additional guest who is a minor, you represent and warrant that you are legally authorised to act on behalf of the minor. Minors may only attend an Event if accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.
10.6 You agree to leave the Event location no later than the Event End time that the Host specifies in the Event Listing or such other time as mutually agreed upon between you and the Host. If you stay past the agreed upon Event End time without the Host’s consent, you no longer have a license to stay in the Event location and the Host is entitled to make you leave in a manner consistent with applicable law.
10.7 A Guest may pay for attending an Event by using the PayPal service. The Ticket Price charged from you will be kept faithfully by GADP and in compliance with any applicable law, and will only be transferred to the respective Host (if applicable) 3 working days following your attendance to the Booked Event, and provided that no cancellation notification was made by you before that day, and that no disputes have been raised by you. The Host-specified Charity’s portion of the Ticket Price will only be transferred to the respective Charity’s Account via BACS on the next scheduled processing date (“Scheduled Processing”). The Scheduled Processing for transferral of collected monies to the specific charities is performed on a weekly basis as a minimum.
10.8 The Hosts, not GADP, are solely responsible for honouring any confirmed bookings and making available any Events reserved through the Website and Services. If you, as a Guest, choose to enter into a transaction with a Host for the booking of an Event, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Host and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Event imposed by the Host. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not GADP, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that GADP is not a party to such agreements, and that, GADP disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that GADP is not a party to the agreement between you and the Host, PayPal acts as the Host’s payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Host. Upon your payment of the Total Ticket Price using PayPal, your payment obligation to the Charity and/ or Host is extinguished, and GADP is responsible for remitting the Ticket Price in the manner described in these Terms. In the event that GADP does not remit any such amounts as described in these Terms, such Host will have recourse only against such GADP entity.
11. Booking Fee
11.1 In consideration for the use of GADP’s online platform, GADP charges Booking Fees. GADP deducts the Booking Fees and taxes or such like, where applicable, from the Total Ticket Price before remitting the balance to the Host-specified Charity and/ or Host as described in these Terms.
11.2 Balances will be remitted by GADP to Hosts via PayPal. Amounts may be rounded up or down. Except as otherwise provided herein, Booking Fees are non-refundable.
More information on Booking Fees can be found at https://giveadinnerparty.com/frequently-asked-questions.
12. Cancellations and Refunds
12.1 Hosts and Guests are responsible for any modifications to a booking that they make via the Website or Services or direct GADP customer service to make, and agree to pay any additional Event Ticket Fees, Booking Fees and/ or Taxes associated with such Booking Modifications.
12.2 All bookings are subject to GADP’s cancellation policy as follows:
- If a booking is cancelled 46 hours or more before the Event, the Host shall not be paid any amount and the Guest shall be eligible for a full refund.
- If a booking is cancelled by the Guest less than 46 hours before the Event, the Guest shall not be entitled to any refund, credit or reimbursement. Both Host & Host’s chosen Charity will continue to benefit from that booking in the same way as though the booking had not been cancelled.
12.3 Guests can cancel a confirmed booking at any time pursuant to GADP’s cancellation policy. Your booking shall only be deemed cancelled upon receipt of GADP’s cancellation confirmation. GADP reserves the right to cancel a booking at any time upon refunding the Total Ticket Price. In such a case where the Host cancels a Guest’s booking to an Event, GADP will refund the Guest with the Total Ticket Price which the Guest has paid to GADP. GADP shall not bear any liability for any cost, expense, loss or damage that you may suffer or incur as a result of a Host’s or Guest’s cancellation of an Event or booking of an Event.
12.4 In certain circumstances, GADP may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Website and Services. This may be for reasons such as political unrest in the area, property damage, maintenance issues that affect the ability to host, death or serious illness, natural disaster in the country or for any other reason.
12.5 If GADP refunds a confirmed booking and/ or attended Event, and the Guest receives a refund in accordance with GADP’s cancellation and refunds policy after the Host and Host-specified charity has already been paid, GADP will be entitled to recover the amount of any such refund from the Host, including by subtracting such refund amount out from any future Payouts due to the Host.
13. Reviews and Feedback
13.1 Within a certain timeframe after the Event, Guests and Hosts can leave a public review (“Review”) and submit a star rating (“Feedback”) about each other. Reviews or Feedback reflect the opinions of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of GADP. Reviews and Feedback are not verified by GADP for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.
13.2 Reviews and Feedback by Guests and Hosts must be accurate and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Reviews and Feedback are subject to Section 7 and must comply with GADP’s Guidelines of Use.
13.3 Members are prohibited from manipulating the Reviews and Feedback system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to write a positive or negative Review about another Member.
13.4 Reviews and Feedback are part of a Member’s public profile and may also be surfaced elsewhere on the Website and Services (such as the Event Listing page) together with other relevant information such as number of tickets sold, total raised for charity and other information.
14. Damage to Property and/ or Belongings
As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the Property and/ or Belongings within the Event property in the condition it was in when you arrived. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Guest, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Event Property.

19.8 Sections 7 and 20 to 24 of these Terms shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
If you choose to use the Website and Services or Collective Content, you do so voluntarily and at your sole risk. The Website and Services and Collective Content is provided “as is”, without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.
You agree that you have had whatever opportunity you deem necessary to investigate the GADP Services, laws, rules, or regulations that may be applicable to your Events you are receiving and that you are not relying upon any statement of law or fact made by GADP relating to an Event.
If we choose to conduct identity verification or background checks on any Member, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that such checks will identify prior misconduct by a Member or guarantee that a Member will not engage in misconduct in the future.
You agree that some Events may carry inherent risk, and by participating in such services, you choose to assume those risks voluntarily. For example, some Events may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and wilfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those Events. You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during and after your participation in an Event. If you are bringing a minor as an additional guest, you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor throughout the duration of the Event and to the maximum extent permitted by law, you agree to release and hold harmless GADP from all liabilities and claims that arise in any way from any injury, death, loss or harm that occurs to that minor during the Event or in any way related to your Event.
The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
21. Limitation of Liability
The use of GADP and participation in any Event is solely at your own risk. Except as provided herein, in no event shall GADP be liable for any damages whatsoever including, but not limited to, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages of any kind, whether in an action of contract, negligence or other tortious actions resulting from or arising out of GADP or any Event, or the use or inability to use GADP, regardless of whether GADP or an authorised representative of GADP has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Except where liability is mandatory, in which Event liability for damages shall be limited to your Total Ticket Price.
In no event will GADP’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these terms and your use of the Website and Services including, but not limited to, from your Event or Booking of any Event via the Website and Services, in connection with any Event or interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the Website and Services as a Guest in the six (6) month period prior to the Event giving rise to the liability, or if you are a Host, the amounts paid by GADP to you in the six (6) month period prior to the Event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred British Pounds (GBP£100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between GADP and you.
To the maximum extent permissible by law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless GADP, its officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs, debts, and expenses (including but not limited to lawyer’s fees) arising from: (i) your violation of any term of these Terms; (ii) your use of GADP; (iii) your violation of any third party rights, including without limitation any intellectual property rights or privacy right of such third party; and (iv) any damage of any sort, whether direct, indirect, special or consequential, you may cause to any third party with relation to GADP. It is hereby clarified that this defence and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms.
We welcome and encourage you to provide feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Website and Services (“Feedback“). You may submit Feedback by emailing us, or by other means of communication. Any Feedback you submit to us will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. By submitting Feedback to us, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.
24.1 Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions, policies, guidelines or standards, these Terms constitute the entire Agreement between GADP and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between GADP and you in relation to the access to and use of the Website and Services.
24.2 No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and GADP as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Website and Services.
24.3 These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties.
24.4 If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
24.5 GADP’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
24.6 You may not assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and your rights and obligations hereunder without GADP’s prior written consent. GADP may without restriction assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and any rights and obligations hereunder, at its sole discretion, with thirty (30) days prior notice. Your right to terminate this Agreement at any time remains unaffected.
24.7 Unless specified otherwise, any notices or other communications to Members permitted or required under this Agreement, will be provided electronically and given by GADP via email, Website and Services notification, or messaging service (including SMS and Whatsapp).
