H. Third-Party Links
I. Products and Services Offered by Restaurant Users and Others
Trufl provides Users a waiting list service for restaurants operated by Restaurant Users (“Restaurants”). Trufl also offers Users the opportunity to be instantly seated at participating restaurants by allowing Users to bid on tables (“Bids”). In order to place Bids, you must have a credit card on file with Trufl. All Bids are prepayments for food and drinks served at the restaurant and do not include payment for tips or any applicable sales or other taxes. Tips and applicable taxes are payable at the restaurant. A temporary charge will be applied to your credit card on file with Trufl when you place a Bid on a table. If your Bid is the highest Bid for a particular table at a restaurant and you are seated at the table, the temporary charge will become a permanent charge to your credit card. All purchases of food and drink to which Bids are applied are made by you through the Properties directly from the Restaurant User as a direct sale and purchase between you and the applicable Restaurant User. For such sales, the applicable Properties function solely as a neutral venue and digital clearinghouse where Users and Restaurant Users, and Users and Third-Party Sites, may connect for such transactions.
Bids will be remitted to the Restaurant Users, and the Restaurant Users will be solely responsible for providing the items purchased at the restaurant and issuing refunds, completely in the Restaurant User’s sole discretion. Sales or other taxes may be applicable on purchases of food and drinks in certain states, counties and/or municipalities. These taxes will be charged by the Restaurant User at the Restaurant. To the extent the applicable state, county or municipality charges a sales or other tax, Restaurant Users are liable for charging Users for such taxes and forwarding such payments to the state, county and/or municipal agency.
All Restaurant Users are independent contractors. Trufl is not a party to the actual transaction between or among Users who purchase food and drinks from the Restaurant User at the restaurant at which Bids paid for on the Properties are credited. We have no control over the quality, accuracy, safety or legality of the food and drinks provided at the restaurants by the Restaurant Users, and we are not responsible for the actions or inactions of Users and/orRestaurant Users. Users acknowledge and understand that Trufl does not issue any refund of Bids once the User is seated at the restaurant.
K. Incurred Fees
To the extent fees are not currently being charged, Trufl reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge a fee to Users and/or Restaurant Users for certain Trufl products and/or services in the future. Changes to the fee policy are effective once Trufl has posted the changes on the Properties.
If applicable, you agree to pay all fees for which you are accountable and that are charged to your Account based on Trufl’s fees, charges and billing terms then in effect (“Fees”). All Fees incurred will be billed to your payment method designated at the time you make a purchase or register for a fee-based product or service. If you do not pay on time or if Trufl cannot charge the billing method on file, for any reason, Trufl reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to either suspend or terminate your access to the Properties and/or terminate your Account. You are expressly agreeing that Trufl is permitted to bill you for the applicable Fees. If you cancel your Account at any time, you will not receive any refund. If you have a balance due on any account, you agree that Trufl may charge unpaid Fees to your payment method on file or otherwise bill you for unpaid Fees.
