Our Services via the Website allow you (“User” or “you”) to search for, identify, review and secure orders and reservations with participating third party event-related suppliers and service providers, including, without limitation, venues, caterers and entertainment providers that are both listed on the Website and sourced separately off-line by us (each, “Supplier”). The Website acts as a platform to allow the Suppliers to advertise and post their services. We provide this platform to you at no charge, however, we may or may not earn a commission from each Supplier. We are not a party to the actual transaction between you and the Supplier. As a result, even though we vet the Suppliers and hope that Suppliers will advertise truthfully, we have no control over the quality of the items or services advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of Suppliers to sell items or provide services. In addition, we cannot ensure that a Supplier will actually complete a transaction and in•clued shall not be liable for the failure to fulfill any obligation owed by Supplier to you. In addition, in•clued does not represent or warrant that any other content or information accessible via the Website or Services or communicated to you by any Supplier is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free including the menus, pricing, hours of operation, and nature and extent of services.
