Services availed from other Users, clubs, brands, corporations and service providers
Through this Platform, you may interact and make reservations at private clubs, or avail of services or products (“Third Party Services”) through third party service providers (which may include private clubs) (“Service Providers”). You acknowledge that MobiCom is not and cannot be a party to or control in any manner any transactions between Users and Service Providers. Consequently, you acknowledge that:
- The private clubs that you may be provided access to may be different from members of other clubs. This happens because clubs may choose, at their own discretion, to remove access from certain clubs and their members.
- Your correspondence or dealings with Service Providers found on or through the Platform, including payment and delivery of related products or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such Service Provider. We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of such Service Providers on the Platform.
- MobiCom does not make any representations or warranties as to the Services proposed to be provided by Service Providers via the Platform. MobiCom does not implicitly or explicitly support or endorse the sale or purchase of any Third-Party Services on the Platform. MobiCom does not verify the nature of any Third-Party Services proposed to be sold or provided, and merely acts as a platform to connect Users to Service Providers. Accordingly, you acknowledge that you and any User(s) and/or Service Providers you may interact or transact with via the Platform are each solely liable for your own acts or omissions and any loss or damage thereto. MobiCom is not the service provider and cannot therefore control or prevent changes in the published descriptions or representations, which are always based upon information provided by the Service Providers. MobiCom acts only as a facilitator for Third Party Services and shall not be held liable for any changes, deficiencies, disputes, etc. related to the Third-Party Services, including the matters related to delays in refunds or no refunds, of the fares and charges paid to Service Providers.
- When you use any Third-Party Services, such as making reservations at clubs, you agree to adhere to the rules and conditions set down by such Service Provider. For example, you agree that you will adhere with any club rules related to dress code, usage of facilities etc. Further you agree to respect the property of such Service Provider and will be solely liable for any loss or damages you may cause. In the event you fail to adhere to such terms, MobiCom reserves the right to immediately discontinue your access to the Platform and take such other action as it may deem necessary.
- When you use any Third Party Services at a private club such as requesting access, booking a venue for a private event or participating in any promotions, you must carry your home club membership card or club identity card during your visit to the other club in order to establish your identity. If the host club has reason to believe that there is a mis-match or misrepresentation of the identity of the member, they have complete discretion to reject permission to you to avail of the Third Party Services booked and take such other action as they may be deemed necessary. MobiCom shall not be responsible for any loss caused to you in such instance and is not liable to make any refunds. Further, MobiCom reserves the right to immediately discontinue your access to the Platform and take such other action as it may deem necessary.
- You agree that MobiCom is not responsible and shall not be held liable for any failure of the Service Provider to make available any Third-Party Services, for whatever reason or cause.
Plan, Fee and Terms
- There are no fees or charges applicable for licensing or registering yourself on the Platform, as a User or to request access to your home club’s reciprocal network of private clubs. However, if you were to place a request for access to any Private Club within the nation, outside of your home club’s reciprocal network on PrivateClubWorld through the Platform, you will have to subscribe to an annual subscription plan (Plan) and liable to pay a non-refundable subscription fee (Fee) of $250 valid for 365 days from the date of subscription, as under: Privilege plan, Fee USD 250 – Unlimited request for access and unlimited confirmed bookings
- Confirmed Bookings mean your request for access confirmed by the Club as an accepted booking at their end. Clubs have the sole discretion to confirm or decline your request for access based as per their preference and criteria for consideration. If you have requested access to multiple clubs, it shall be your responsibility to confirm acceptance of one or more of those confirmed bookings as limitations of the subscribed plan if any, will apply. If you or the club cancel a confirmed booking, you will be entitled to make another booking as eligible within your Plan.
- Your subscription plan will be renewed automatically at the end of the subscription period, unless cancelled by you prior to the renewal date. Unused confirmed bookings if any are not transferable to the next subscription plan period. You cannot combine multiple subscription plans at any given time.
- Your request for access will not be processed by MobiCom unless you have subscribed to one of the Plan prior to availing of the service. However, if you were to avail the services of any Club on PrivateClubWorld with a booking made using the Platform, it will be deemed that you have also accepted the Privileged Plan and the Fee applicable as per that Plan will be charged by MobiCom and your credit card will be processed accordingly.
- MobiCom reserves the right to change the Fee at any time and will provide you with adequate notice of any Fee changes before they become effective. Such Fee changes will not affect any bookings made prior to the effective date of the Fee change.
- Any amendments or cancellations, including processing of refunds (if any) shall be as per Cancellation Policy.
- Any amendments or cancellations to Third-Party Services, including processing of refunds (if any) shall be as per the policies of the respective Service Provider, and MobiCom shall not be responsible for the same. Amendments and cancellations may also be subject to either MobiCom’s cancellation policy or the said Service Provider’s cancellation policy, as may be intimated to you prior to availing the Third-Party Service. If applicable and subject to the Service Provider’s policies, you may receive alternate options for provision of such Third-Party Services that may be available, and in such instance, any payments made by you may be adjusted towards such alternative services.
- You acknowledge that you will make all payments for Third Party Services availed via the Platform only through the Platform and will not make any direct payments to Service Providers, unless explicitly agreed upon by MobiCom. Users should not take any action until they have received a confirmation of the User’s transaction.
- The total price payable will be displayed to you before making payment. Users are hereby informed that in case of a booking or transaction request being rejected by a Service Provider (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Service Provider), any amounts collected by MobiCom for such booking will be refunded to the User’s Account used for making the payments. As a general rule, we will only remit to the Service Provider any applicable amount due once we receive confirmation of a booking from the Service Provider.
- You acknowledge that payments for Third Party Services may be in the local currency of the Service Provider. As an international customer, you may incur transaction charges, foreign exchange conversion charges etc. on the purchase of such Third-Party Services. We recommend you consult the exact nature and amount of charges with your bank before proceeding for payment. Please note that MobiCom cannot control any fees that may be charged to User by his/her/its bank related to such a transaction and MobiCom disclaims all liability in this regard.
- MobiCom reserves the right to refuse to process transactions by Users with a prior history of questionable charges at the sole discretion of MobiCom, including without limitation breach of any agreements with MobiCom, or breach/violation of any Law or any charges imposed by any Banks.
- MobiCom may do such checks as it deems fit before approving the receipt of a User’s commitment to pay the transaction price. As a result of such check if MobiCom is not satisfied with the creditability of the User or genuineness of the transaction / transaction price, it will have the right at its sole discretion to reject the commitment to pay transaction price and impose such other conditions as it may deem fit. We are a facilitator for payment from User to the Service Provider and our obligation to pay the Service Provider is conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from User. MobiCom does not guarantee payments to Service Providers for amounts that have not been successfully received by us from Users.
- MobiCom may delay notifying confirmation of any payments received, or confirmation to provide any Services/Third Party Services, in the event that MobiCom, in its sole discretion, deems the actions or inactions of a User to be suspicious or not bona fide. MobiCom shall be entitled to take such actions as it may deem fit in such a situation, including but not limited to issuing instructions to hold payment of a transaction price (or part thereof), or informing relevant law enforcement officials of the same.
