1.1 Who we are. We are Foogin Ltd, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 12602034 and with our registered office at 21 Bayliss Heights, 8 Peartree Way, London, UK, SE10 0GX. We operate the website www.foogin.com.
1.2 What services we provide. We operate a platform which allows third party traders (‘Organisers’ or ‘Instructors’) to advertise wellness services, classes, events and other activities listed on our website from time to time (‘Classes’ or ‘Events’) to consumers (‘Attendees’). Attendees may enquire about and book these Events via our website.
1.3 How to contact us. To contact us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1.4 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address you provided to us in your booking or registration.
1.5 ‘Writing’ includes emails. When we use the words ‘writing’ or ‘written’ in these terms, this includes emails.
2. About these terms
2.1 What these terms cover. These are the terms and conditions on which we supply our services to you.
2.2 Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your booking to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide Events to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
2.3 Are you Organiser or an Attendee? In some areas you will have different rights under these terms depending on whether you are a business providing activities on our platform (‘Organiser’) or a consumer wishing to buy Credits or book Events on our platform (‘Attendee’). Provisions specific to Attendees only can be found in section ‘TERMS APPLICABLE ONLY TO ATTENDEES‘ and those specific to Organisers only can be found in section ‘Terms applicable only to Organisers‘
2.4 Legal relationship between Organisers and Attendees. This contract relates to the operation of the platform by us to Organisers and Attendees. It does not relate to the provision of Events by the Organisers to Attendees. We are authorised to accept bookings made by Attendees on the Organisers’ behalf and, when we accept a booking made by an Attendee, a contract will be formed directly between the Organiser and the Attendee. For clarity, all Events are provided by the relevant Organiser and we are not responsible for organising or delivering the Events themselves.
3. How we may use personal information
3.1 How we will use your personal information. We will only use your personal information as set out in our https://foogin.com/privacy/.
3.2 How Stripe/PayPal will use your personal information. We use Stripe/PayPal as our payment services providers. As part of those services, Stripe/PayPal will have access to and will process your personal information including name, billing address and payment details. You can find out more about how Stripe processes payments and personal data on their website: https://stripe.com/gb/privacy. You can find out more about how PayPal processes payments and personal data on their website: https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
4. Our rights to make changes to the platform and these terms
4.1 Minor changes to these terms or the platform. We may change these terms or the platform:
(a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, for example as a result of the UK leaving the European Union; and
(b) to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These changes should not affect your use of the platform in a material way, and we will let you know of any material changes.
4.2 More significant changes to these terms and the platform. In addition, we may make other changes to these terms or the platform from time to time. We will always notify you of any changes we have made and we will use our best endeavours to give you at least 15 days’ notice of any material changes. We will normally do this by email so please make sure we have an up to date email address for you.
4.3 Your copy. You should print off a copy of these Terms or save them to your computer for future reference.
5. Other important terms that apply to both Attendees and Organisers
5.1 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
5.2 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract. You may only assign or transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree in writing.
5.3 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
5.4 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if your payment is unsuccessful and we do not chase you but and you are able to access the Event you have booked, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
TERMS APPLICABLE ONLY TO ATTENDEES
6. About these terms if you are an Attendee
6.1 What services we provide to Attendees. We operate a platform which allows Organisers to advertise wellness services, classes, events and other activities listed on our website to Attendees. As an Attendee, you may enquire about and book these Events via our website.
6.2 Your relationship with Organisers. You should note that, when you book an Event through our website, you are purchasing the Event directly from the relevant Organiser.

8.2 Restrictions and special requirements. Certain Events may be subject to restrictions or minimum or maximum requirements as specified by Organisers. These may include requirements about age, health, fitness level, height or weight. We strongly recommend that you take the time to review any terms and conditions provided by the Organisers in relation to the Events before making any purchase to avoid disappointment.
8.3 Making a booking. Please follow the onscreen prompts to make a booking. You may only make a booking using the method set out on our website and you cannot make a booking e.g. by telephoning or emailing us. Each booking request is an offer by you to buy the services, being events, specified in the order (“Events”) subject to these terms and conditions.

8.5 Acknowledging receipt of your order. After you place your order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received it, but please note that this does not mean that your booking has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 8.6.
8.6 How we will accept your booking. Once you make a booking request, we will accept it on the Organiser’s behalf. Our acceptance of your booking takes place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and the Organiser. Please make sure you familiarise yourself with any terms and conditions provided by the Organisers in relation to the Events before making a booking.
8.7 If we cannot accept your booking. If we are unable to accept your booking on the Organiser’s behalf, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the booking. This might be because the relevant Event has been fully booked or because the Organiser has identified an error in the price or description of the Event.

9. Price and payments
9.1 Where to find the price for the Event. The price of the Event will be the price indicated on the booking pages when you placed your booking. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Events advertised to you are correct. However, please note that the prices are set by the Organisers and we do not control the prices advertised on our website. Please see clause 9.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Event after you have made a booking.
9.2 How you must pay us. Attendees must pay us a Service Fee at the rate of 10% from the price of the paid Event advertised on our platform. This fee will be displayed on the Checkout page during the Event booking process.
9.3 All prices advertised are in British pounds While our website may display prices in your local currency (depending on where you are), all prices advertised are in British pounds. If you are able to see prices in your local currency, please note that the price is an estimation of the price you will pay based on the current exchange rates. All bookings are paid for through Stripe/PayPal. When you submit your booking request, Stripe/PayPal will charge your card in your local currency (the currency of the bank account linked to your payment card) at the current exchange rates applied by Stripe/PayPal at the time you check out.
9.4 What happens if we discover an error in the prices advertised on our website. We ask Organisers to check prices carefully before posting any Events on our website. However, it is always possible that, despite the Organiser’s best efforts, some of the Events advertised on our website may be incorrectly priced. If we accept and process your booking on an Organiser’s behalf where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, the Organiser may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
9.5 How you can pay. All bookings are paid for through Stripe/PayPal. Please note that your use of Stripe/PayPal is governed by Stripe/ PayPal’s terms and conditions. Stripe/PayPal will prompt you to read them during the order process and we strongly recommend that you read them carefully before making a booking.

10. If there is a problem with an Event
10.1 Your key legal rights. Because you are a consumer, Organisers are under a legal duty to supply products (including services) that are in conformity with your contract with them. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the products. Nothing in these terms or the Organisers’ terms and conditions will affect your legal rights.
|Summary of your key legal rights This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06. As the Events are classed as services, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:|
a) You can ask the Organiser to repeat or fix a service if it’s not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if they can’t fix it.
b) If you haven’t agreed a price beforehand, what you’re asked to pay must be reasonable.
c) If you haven’t agreed a time beforehand, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.
10.2 How to resolve disputes. You are contracting directly with the Organiser and you should always contact the Organiser first to try to resolve any issues.
10.3 If you can’t resolve your dispute with the Organiser. We’re here to help. You should always contact the Organiser first to try to resolve any issues, but if you can’t come to an agreement within 30 days of the date you first raise the issue with the Organiser, you can appeal to us by emailing email@example.com and we will try to find a resolution on your behalf.
10.4 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are a consumer and you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact an alternative dispute resolution provider. Such providers do not normally charge consumers for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings, including in court. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
11. Cancellation rights
11.1 If you wish to cancel a booking. We are not responsible for organising or delivering the Events themselves and we cannot issue refunds on Organisers’ behalf. It is important that you familiarise yourself with any terms and conditions as provided by the Organisers as they will set out details of the relationship between you and the Organisers, including your cancellation rights. If you wish to cancel a booking, you should contact the Organiser directly.
11.2 Our minimum cancellation policy. Even though you are contracting directly with the Organiser, we specify our minimum required cancellation policy. Organisers can specify more generous cancellation rights in their own terms and conditions, but we ask them not to specify more restrictive cancellation rights. You can find our cancellation policy on our website under ‘Refund policy’. We have also summarised your key legal rights below.
11.3 Exercising your right to change your mind under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (‘cooling-off’ period). For most products (including goods, services and digital content) bought online, consumers have a legal right to change their mind within 14 days and receive a refund. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions. If you wish to cancel a booking, you should contact the Organiser directly.
11.4 When you do not have the right to change your mind. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of services (including the Events), once these have been completed, even if the cooling-off period is still running.
12.1 How refunds work. We are not responsible for organising or delivering the Events themselves and we cannot issue refunds on the Organisers’ behalf, but we do specify our required minimum refund policy. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms (see clauses 10 and 11 above) we ask that Organisers refund you the price you paid for the Event, by the method you used for payment. However, they may make deductions from the price, as described below.
12.2 When Organisers may make deduction from refunds if you are cancelling within the cooling-off period. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind (that is, if you are cancelling within the 14-day cooling-off period), the Organiser may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Event for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told the Organiser you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full duration of the Event.
12.3 How this may work in practice. In practice, if you are cancelling a one-off Event and you are still within the cooling-off period, you are entitled to a full refund as long as you cancel at least 24 hours before the Event, or 80% of the price you paid if you cancel within 24 hours of the time the Event is scheduled to start. If you are cancelling an Event taking place over several days and you are still within the cooling-off period, you are entitled to a full refund as long as you cancel at least 24 hours before the time the first part of the Event is scheduled to start. If you cancel after that, the Organiser may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Event for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told the Organiser you had changed your mind.
12.4 Our minimum refund policy for cancellations outside of the cooling-off period. If you are a consumer but are cancelling outside of the 14-day cooling-off period, you may not have a legal right to a refund and we recommend that you check the Organiser’s terms and conditions for details of its refund policy. Even though you are contracting directly with the Organiser, we specify our minimum required refund policy. Organisers can specify a more generous refund policy in their own terms and conditions, but we ask them not to specify a more restrictive refund policy. You can find our refund policy on our website under ‘Refund policy’.
13. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
13.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
13.2 We are not responsible for any loss or damage caused by the Organisers. We are not responsible for organising or delivering the Events themselves and we are not responsible for any loss or damage caused by any Organiser. It is important that you familiarise yourself with any terms and conditions as provided by the Organisers as they will set out details of the relationship between you and the Organisers, including your rights in case there are any problems.
13.3 We are not liable for business losses. If you are an Attendee, we only supply the Events for to you for domestic and private use. If you use the Events for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose our liability to you will be limited as set out in clause 21.

The Service Fee is calculated on a percentage of the price of the Events you advertise on our platform. To make payments simple for Organisers, we will deduct the applicable Service Fee from the total amount paid by an Attendee when they book an Event.
