1.1 Purpose of the Site.
The Site is an online portal and website located at www.NightOutWithaSocialite.com (the "Site") provided by Socialite where Users may locate Employers who purchase Services or Contractors that provide Services and access and use the Socialite Resources (collectively, the "Site"). In addition, payments for the Services contracted for through the Site are made through the Site. On the Site, Contractors may post events employers and Contractors may post information about their capabilities and bid on Contracts.
The Site is available only to legal entities/persons who are at least twenty one (21) years old and are otherwise capable of forming legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Site is not available to temporarily or indefinitely suspended Users. Users are not employees, agents or contractors of Socialite at any time and do not have the authority to enter into any contracts on behalf of Socialite, except as may otherwise be provided herein.
User agrees that he/she/it is not (a) a citizen of or reside in a country in which use or participation is prohibited by law, decree, regulation, treaty or administrative act; (b) a citizen or resident of, or located in, a country or region that permits the service offered as legal; or (c) an individual that is an ex convict or holds any illegal offences against their name.
If an Employer accepts a Contractor's event for an experience, a services contract is formed directly between such Employer and Contractor subject to the terms specified in Section 3 (Service Contract Terms Between Employer and Contractor) and/or any other terms and conditions that Employer and Contractor may agree upon through the Site ("Service Contract"). Socialite is not a party to any Service Contract between Employers and Contractors and Socialite itself does not deliver any Contracts or Work Product, nor does Socialite make any representations regarding the quality thereof, except as may be otherwise explicitly set forth by Socialite. Any agreement or attempted agreement between Employer and Contractor, in connection with a Service Contract, requiring that payment be made outside of the Site shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and be subject to the "Buy-Out" provision set forth in the Billing and Payments Policy below.
User acknowledges and agrees that the reputation and goodwill of Socialite may be adversely affected if, as an Employer or Contractor, the User engages in violations of the Service Contract. Socialite has the right to take action, including legal action, against the User as Socialite, in its sole discretion, deems necessary to protect the interests of Socialite. Socialite reserves the right to place a financial hold on and reclaim funds available in the User's account in the event of a material breach of this Agreement. Nothing in this provision should be construed as providing Socialite with the right or obligation to supervise or monitor the actual Services performed by the Contractor .
1.5 Payment of Socialite Fee.
User agrees that Socialite shall be paid a fee (the "Socialite Fee") for services and experiences including but not limited to maintaining the Site, providing online management resources , and/or managing payment between Users. The amount of such fee and the method of its payment are set forth below in Section 2 (Socialite Policies).
2. SOCIALITE POLICIES
2.1 Socialite Fee.
Socialite will charge a fee equal to 20% of the Employer's payment and remit the remaining 80% to the Contractor. No modification or amendment to this pricing shall be binding upon either party unless included in a written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of each party (and, for the purposes of this Section 2.1, a written instrument shall expressly exclude electronic communications such as email and electronic notices but shall include facsimiles).
Socialite has created a marketplace to connect Employers and Contractors of Services using our systems and resources. Socialite is not a service company and does not manage individual Services or individual Contractors or their work, in any manner. Socialite expects a consistent and high level of courtesy, respect and professionalism from all of its Users toward each other and reserves the right to expel any User from our network at any time. Users agree to use good judgment when posting information, comments, feedback or other content regarding other Users, Socialite or any other third party anywhere within the Site. Users may be held legally responsible for damages suffered by other Users, Socialite or any third party as a result of legally actionable or defamatory comments, remarks or other information or content posted to the Site. All Employers and Contractors are to comply with any policies which are incorporated into this Agreement by reference. These policies may be modified from time to time at Socialite's discretion and the current effective policy will be deemed to be part of this Agreement.
Under federal law, Socialite is not legally responsible for any remarks, information or other content posted or made available on the Site by any User or third party, even if such information or content is defamatory or otherwise legally actionable. Socialite is not responsible for and does not monitor or censor content for accuracy or reliability. However, Socialite reserves the right to remove or restrict access to any information or content posted or made available on the Site if ordered to do so by a court or if Socialite considers such information or content to be in violation of this Agreement. Violation of the Agreement may result in suspension or termination.
All identity information associated with an Socialite User Account must be real and verifiable. Each User Account must be used by only one person, and each person is allowed to use only one User account. Socialite reserves the right to validate User information at any time, including but not limited to the verification of one or more official government or legal documents that confirm the User's identity. Failure to provide identity verification when requested is a violation of this Agreement. The User is solely responsible for ensuring and maintaining the secrecy and security of the Socialite password. User agrees not to disclose this password to any third party and shall be solely responsible for any use of or action taken through the use of such password on Socialite. User will not allow third parties to perform any action, including but not limited to, posting jobs, bidding for or performing Services under the User's Socialite account.
All jobs posted to Socialite must be in English and not contain any information enabling or requests for contact or payment outside of the Site. Event postings must be of a professional nature and accurately describe the Services requested. They should be free of offensive language or advertisements for other products or services. Job postings may not request any service that is illegal or violates intellectual property rights, copyrights or the terms of service of another service, product or website. Event postings of an adult or potentially offensive nature should notify potential readers in the title of the Job Posting.
All information provided in an application must be true, accurate and complete. Socialite reserves the right to verify any and all information provided on a User's profile or event application. By applying to a contractor, the User is attesting that he/she/it has the skills and ability to perform the events and/or experiences by the dates stated in the event posting.
Socialites agree to regularly review their Bookings, upcoming events, and reviews from past customers and respond promptly to communications with and requests for information from the Supplier.
The Socialite is responsible for providing all tools, means and resources necessary to complete the Event, unless explicitly stated in advance by the Socialite. Socialites agree to respond to all Suppliers communications and requests for information within one business day. If the Socialite will be unable to meet this requirement due to an absence, he is expected to notify the Supplier at least 2 weeks prior. After the completion of a Event, the Socialite agrees to provide timely, honest and objective feedback on the User.
The Supplier, given feedback from the User and Socialite, have complete and sole discretion on the satisfactory completion of a Event and are under no obligation to pay unless the Socialite meets expectations set out for the Event.
The Supplier shall make all payments relating to, or in any way connected with, a Event through the payment channels provided or specified by Suppler. The User shall not make any such payments directly to a Contractor or through any other payment channels.
Any action that encourages or solicits complete or partial payment outside of the Supplier system is a violation of this Agreement. Should an Socialite be found in violation of this section of this Agreement, it will owe Supplier fees equal to the greater of a) $2,500; or b) the applicable fees had the payments been processed through the Socialite system plus 20%.
Users shall immediately notify Supplier if a Socialite requests that Employer make a payment directly to it or through any channels other than those provided or specified by Suppler.
Socialites shall not accept any payments relating to a Event from a User directly or through any payment channels other than those provided or specified by the Site. Socialites shall immediately notify Supplier if a User or any of its agents attempts to make a payment to Socialites directly or through any payment channels other than those provided or specified by Socialite.
The Supplier provides the Payment Service and requires Users to use it to make all payments to Socialite and to make and accept payments from other Users in the purchase and sale of Events and Services through the Site. Each User must properly discharge and credit its Socialite for all payments Socialite receives through the Payment Service from such User. Amounts transferred or stored in the Payment Service are insured deposits. Solely for purposes of the Payment Service and not for any other Services available through the Supplier Platform, the Supplier acts as your agent and as a trustee or fiduciary with respect to such funds or payments.
You understand and agree that Supplier will hold funds delivered as payments to Socialite from Users in a separate account, but may commingle and deposit such funds with other funds to be paid to Socialite. In addition, you understand that such commingled funds could be used to pay other Socialites and by Supplier for general corporate purposes or otherwise, provided that Supplier will remain contractually obligated to make payment to you, for any event and services sold through the Site. Except pursuant to the Hold On Funds Policy below, to the extent Supplier is obligated to make payment to you as a Socialite.
2.8 Charge-backs, cancellation of credit card and any other intentional non-payment.
If User instructs his bank or credit card company to issue a charge back on any payment, cancels a credit card prior to an event or engages in any other intentional non-payment, it will be deemed a payment made in bad faith and a violation of the booking.
All event bookings will be frozen, refunded or dealt with in a manner Suppler deems appropriate. Additionally, User agrees that Socialite may pursue whatever legal means become necessary to secure repayment of the entire amount of the bad faith payment from the User. User agrees to pay all Socialite costs in securing such payment, including collection agency costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.
Supplier will deposit funds into Socialite given paypal account within 4 days on either Tuesday or Thursday for you to use or withdraw. In cases of fraud, abuse or violation of this Agreement, the Socialite payment guarantee shall be revoked and all monies in the account may be held and/or reclaimed, not just those from the User(s) under investigation.
Users may dispute their night out experience, given that the night out does not run as according to the description, during the 3 days after their event experience. It is the Socialites responsibility to review their complaint and feedback of every event on a weekly basis and respond to any disputes on a timely basis. Once the dispute period has passed, the charges are accepted by the sand can no longer be disputed and can only be refunded by the Socialite. Disputes can only address events completed, given the quality of the work performed or deliverables as outlined in event description.
The night out experience cannot be disputed given your personal desires, tastes and expectations. While Socialites are committed to meeting your expectations; all experiences are subjective and personal.
Users can provide feedback and rate as a means through which Users can express their opinions publicly and Socialite does not monitor or censor these opinions or investigate any remarks posted by Users for accuracy or reliability. You acknowledge and agree that the Site will contain public feedback from Users with whom you have transacted. You acknowledge that feedback results for you may consist of comments and ratings left by other Users and that Socialite may calculate a composite feedback number based on these individual ratings. You may be held legally responsible for damages suffered by other Socialite, Users or third parties as a result of these remarks if a court finds that these remarks are legally actionable or defamatory. Supplier is not legally responsible for any feedback or comments posted or made available on the Site by any Users or third parties, even if that information is defamatory or otherwise legally actionable. Any effort to falsify feedback, manipulate or coerce another User by threatening negative feedback or offering to sell or buy Services in exchange for feedback is in violation of this Agreement. Supplier reserves the right to delete ratings and feedback as it deems appropriate.
Supplier may provide skills tests through its own means or third parties. These tests are optional for the Socialite. They are meant as a data point in evaluating Contractors and are in no way a certification by Supplier of the Socialites ability to perform Services associated with a test. Manipulating test scores by providing or receiving answers to the test, allowing others to take the tests or any other attempt at falsifying credentials is a violation of this Agreement.
We will use commercially reasonable methods to keep Personally Identifiable Information securely in our files and systems. Our Payment System is operated using secure Internet connections, including SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, to help protect your financial data.

Once suspended or terminated, you MAY NOT continue to use the Site under a different account or reregister under a new account. If you attempt to use the Socialite service under a different account, we reserve the right to reclaim available funds in that account and/or use an available payment method to pay for any amounts outstanding. In addition, violations of this Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions. If a Socialite engages in actions or activities which circumvent the Site or otherwise reduces fees owed Supplier under this Agreement, that Socialite will be liable to Supplier for the fees due and may be subject to additional sanctions including, but not limited to, suspension or termination of your Socialite account. Supplier reserves the right to terminate any User for any reason, at its sole discretion and to refuse to provide registration and membership to you in the future. We will notify you if we cancel your membership, unless in our judgment giving notice would cause a risk of further violation or damages. However, we will notify you that your account will be canceled if the law requires such notification. When your membership is canceled, you may no longer have access to any parts of the Site, including data, messages, files and other material you keep on Socialite. All intellectual property provided by User for the purposes of completing events will be returned immediately upon termination.

5.FEES AND PAYMENTS.

Socialite and User hereby agree that any Claims shall first be settled through the Socialite dispute resolution program. Claims that the parties cannot resolve informally and where the amount in controversy is less than USD$5,000, the parties agree to resolve the Claims in a cost-effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration conducted by a single arbitrator. If a party elects arbitration, that party will initiate the arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties or the Australian Arbitration Association (AAA) if no other service is agreed upon. The arbitrator shall be selected from a list of no less than five names through alternative strikes. Unless the parties mutually agree otherwise, the ADR provider and the parties will proceed as follows:
a. the arbitration will be conducted by telephone and/or be solely based on written submissions, as specified by the party that initiates the arbitration;
b. the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses; and
c. any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Disputes over $5,000 that do not involve Socialite may be resolved in whatever forum the parties deem appropriate.
To the extent an User or Socialite provides Confidential Information to the other and/or to Supplier, the recipient shall protect the secrecy of the Confidential Information with the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own confidential information, but in no event with less than due care, and shall not: (i) disclose Confidential Information to anyone except, in the case of Supplier, to any User or Socialite engaged in a Contract; and (ii) use the Confidential Information, except as necessary for the performance of Services for the relevant Contract (including, without limitation, the storage or transmission of Confidential Information on or through Supplier Resources for use by Socialite).
If and when Confidential Information is no longer needed for the performance of Services or Events for the relevant Contract, or at the Users or Socialites written request (which may be made at any time at Users or Socialites sole discretion), User, Socialite or Supplier (as the case may be) shall promptly destroy or return all Confidential Information and any copies thereof contained in or on its premises, systems, or any other equipment otherwise under its control. User, Socialite and Supplier agree to provide written certification to the party disclosing the Confidential Information of compliance with this Section 5.2 within ten (10) days after the receipt of disclosing party's written request to certify.
Without limiting Section 5.1 (Confidentiality), User, Socialite and Supplier shall not publish, or cause to be published, any Confidential Information, except as may be necessary for performance of Services for a relevant experience.

11.What makes you the agency?
In one simple word, YOU! We get most of our new clients off of referrals, so that means that most of our business comes through our clients being satisfied and letting other people know how great of a job we do. That also means that if you found us through Google or yahoo or any other search engine or link you are a lucky person. The other thing that makes us the â€œBESTâ€ is that even though we know we are very efficient and good at what we do, we also know, no matter how good you are, there is always room to get better and we are constantly trying to do that. Through technology and client feedback we are constantly pushing the boundaries of how to get better in this industry.
