Please read these Terms of Service (‘Terms’, ‘Terms of Service’) Lymlight website (the ‘Service’) operated by Lymlight (‘us’, ‘we’, or ‘our’). Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.
1. Scope of Lymlight Services
1.1 The Lymlight Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Members”) and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are “Hosts” or “Performers” and the services they offer are “Entertainment Services”) to publish such Entertainment Services on the Lymlight Platform (“Events”) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to book such Entertainment Services (Members using Entertainment Services are “Guests”). Services may include the offering of tickets to live events (“Ticket“), merchandise and digital goods (“Merchandise”), access to digital music (“Records”), and a variety of other event and entertainment related services.
1.2 As the provider of the Lymlight Platform, Lymlight does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Events or Entertainment Services. Hosts alone are responsible for their Events and Entertainment Services in coordination with Performers. When Members purchase a Ticket, they are entering into a contract directly with the Host. Lymlight is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Lymlight an entertainment broker or insurer. Lymlight is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member.
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Lymlight has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Events or Entertainment Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Event descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. Lymlight does not endorse any Member, Event or Entertainment Services. Any references to a Member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Lymlight about any Member, including of the Member’s identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to stay at an Event, participate or use other Entertainment Services, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of an Event at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by Lymlight of any Host or Event.
1.4 If you choose to use the Lymlight Platform as a Host or Co-Host (as defined below), your relationship with Lymlight is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Lymlight for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Lymlight.
1.5 To promote the Lymlight Platform and to increase the exposure of Events to potential Guests, Events and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Members who speak different languages, Events and other Member Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. Lymlight cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Members are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The Lymlight Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
1.6 The Lymlight Platform 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. Lymlight 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 Lymlight of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, Lymlight cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Lymlight Platform. Lymlight may restrict the availability of the Lymlight Platform 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 Lymlight Platform. Lymlight may improve, enhance and modify the Lymlight Platform and introduce new Lymlight Services from time to time.
