By submitting quotes, accepting direct introductions and/or continuing to use any part of the Feast-it Platform or www.feast-it.com (the “Website”), you confirm your acceptance of the Terms, Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. Do not use the Feast-it Platform or accept direct introductions unless you wish to be bound by the Terms, Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy.

If you do not agree to the changes made to the Terms, then you have the right to stop using the Feast-it Platform, and should do so immediately. Your continued use of the Feast-it Platform after the date the changes have been posted will constitute acceptance of the amended Terms.

  5. You may register for a Caterers account with our Website by completing and submitting the account registration form on our Website.
  6. We may require a minimum of two work references and an interview with us before you will be accepted to be registered on our Website.

You warrant that you hold all necessary authorisation, licences and liability insurance required to provide the catering services which you offer through the Website and warrant that all information you provide whether on the Website or direct to customers will be true and fair and not misleading.

Definitions

  1. Where we refer to “you” or the “Caterer” in these Terms, we mean you, any company you work for and any person or entity that accesses or uses the Feast-it Platform or does work for a Client on your behalf.
  2. The term “we” means Karamu Limited, the owner and operator of the Feast-it Platform, (also referred to in these Terms as “we”, “us”, “our”or “Feast-it”) whose registered office is at 20-30 Whitechapel Road, London, United Kingdom, E1 1EW and whose company registration number is 10186089.
  3. These Terms make use of the following definitions:
    “Client” means the person or entity which wishes to engage you to provide your services and is referred to you by us.
    “Commission” means the sum which we take as a commission payment for the referral of a Client.
    An “Event” means the event for which the Client wishes to book catering services.
    The “Feast-it Platform” consists of the Website and the content and services we make available through them.
    The Feast-it Platform is designed to enable Clients to submit to us requests for catering services (“Requests for Services”) and to receive responses from suitable Caterers who are able to provide those services.

The booking process

  1. The Feast-it Platform acts as a marketplace where Clients who are seeking catering services can receive quotes for their Events from suitable Caterers.
  2. You will be informed by the Feast-it Platform of Requests for Services which we believe may be suitable for you, and give you the opportunity to quote for providing those services.
  3. We are not obligated to send you any Requests for Services and you are not obligated to provide quotes for any services requested. However, we do ask all our Caterers to respond to us promptly on receipt of a Request for Services (preferably within 24 hours, and no later than 48 hours from receiving the Request for Services) confirming whether you wish to quote or decline the opportunity. This enables us to offer the work to an alternative Caterer if you decline to quote, and ensures that we are able to meet our customer service aims.
  4. Part of your quote will be to provide the Client with a fixed fee for the catering services they have requested (the “Services Fee”). If at any time you agree any change to the Services Fee with the Client, you must inform us as soon as possible. We will automatically add our Commission to the amount of your Services Fee, and the fee which is shown to the Client will be the sum of your Services Fee plus our Commission (and booking fees) (the “Total Fee”).
  5. Where applicable (e.g. if you are a VAT registered entity), your fee quote or quote per head must include VAT, and you must ensure that your account details are reflective of your VAT status. Any quotes submitted must be gross of VAT where applicable.
  6. All fees to be paid by the Client will be taken by Feast It before the date at which the event occurs. We will hold your Services Fee until the Event has taken place and deliver your Services Fee to you within the following 1-2 business days. You agree that we are entitled to deduct our Commission from the Total Fee received from the Client before sending you the balance, being your Services Fee.
  7. You agree to the following cancellation policy which will apply. In such a case, we will refund to the Client the relevant amount of the Services Fee on your behalf, depending on how close to the date of the Event the cancellation is made, as follows:
    (a) If the Client cancels a booking more than 1 months before the Event date, you agree to us providing a 100% refund to the Client.
    (b) If the Client cancels a booking more than 48 hours but less than 1 months before the Event date, you agree to us providing a 75% refund to the Client.
    (c) If the Client cancels a booking less than 48 hours before the Event date, you agree to us providing a 50% refund.
  8. In the event of a cancellation in accordance with the above policy, we will send you the balance of the Services Fee (less the relevant refund) within 7 days of the cancellation being made.
  9. The Service Fee will be calculated as a proportion of the total fees paid for by the Client and collected by Feast It at the cancellation date, reflecting amounts paid so far.
  10. If a Client wishes to make a change to a booking, we will inform you of the change requested. If the change is significant, we may consider it a cancellation of the original booking and the above cancellation policies will then apply. Each case will be judged on its own merits.
  11. In the event you are unable to provide the catering services which have been agreed in the booking, you must inform us as soon as possible. We will refund the Client the entire amount of your Services Fee and you may be liable for any additional claims which the Client may bring as a result
  12. You should not receive any payments from Clients except through the Feast-it Platform. If you receive any payments direct from a Client (other than a tip), you should inform us as soon as possible, and you will be required to pay our Commission on any such payment received.

Your compliance with these Terms

  1. You understand that we might make enquiries with any Client to ensure that you are complying with your obligations under the Terms.
  2. If you wish to cancel your registration with Feast-it, you can do so at any time by sending an email to [vendor@feast-it.com] requesting removal from our database
  3. We have the right to remove any Caterer from our database, if we receive complaints about that Caterer, or for any other reason at our entire discretion.

    (b) This is against our terms and partners who do so may be banned from using Feast It in future. Furthermore, Feast It will be due our commision and booking fee on any amounts transacted between you and the Client
  2. You must not request, solicit or accept payments outside of the Platform from Clients and agree to direct Clients attempting to pay outside of the platform back to the Feast It platform so that the total fee, or any other fee, can be collected.
  3. Any attempts to circumvent the platform may result in your immediate expulsion from the platform and you may be banned from using it in future.
  4. Any attempts to circumvent the platform may also result in the expulsion of the Client in question from the platform, and they too may be banned from using it in future
  5. Feast It cannot guarantee the quality of any event not completing transactions through the platform and may not be held liable for any agreements or services outside of the platform
