4.6 Events and Cancellations
Mojo Mingle does not offer refunds or exchanges due to a change in your personal circumstances. Attendance at all events is subject to availability. Book early to avoid disappointment. Limited tickets are available for all events. If an event is cancelled, rescheduled or significantly relocated by Mojo Mingle, all liability is limited to the amount for which the ticket was purchased (including any fees or charges).
4.7 Other Event Cancellations
“No shows” will not be tolerated. Failure to attend an event without prior notice (48 hours), or a courtesy message, may result in a strike, or suspended membership. Event tickets are limited and committing a “no show” leads to disappointment for the rest of the attendees who were looking forward to meeting you. In addition, another member could have attended the event in your place. A courtesy phone call or SMS is requested if your plans change last minute. Our number is 0414030774
Most events are subject to minimum numbers (4 people). If minimum numbers are not met the event may be cancelled or postponed. We understand that cancelling and postponing an event can be disappointing. Ticket holders may receive options of:
- receiving a refund for that event (where applicable),
- attending an unofficial event (reduced numbers) for a reduced price or
- transferring to a future event.
If an event looks like being cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, such as extreme weather conditions, ticket holders will be notified by phone call or text message (or email or Facebook Messenger message if a phone number not supplied).
We do not assume responsibility or liability due to the cancellation of events outside of our control and we may offer a refund at our sole discretion. If a deposit has been paid (by us on behalf of you) to a venue for an event, it may not be eligible for a refund due to bookings made with third party providers.
Invoices for any Mojo Mingle Membership (Social Plan), service or event are automatically generated or can be requested by messaging us through Facebook messenger. Please ensure you have checked your spam, junk, and promotions folder before making the request.
Payments will be taken automatically from the nominated account within 24-48 hours of registering. If a credit card payment is not successful for any reason, attempts to debit the credit card account will be made in the following days. If a payment is unable to be processed, your membership plan may be cancelled at our sole discretion.
4.9 Your responsibilities
If you participate in any of our events you acknowledge that you are responsible for your own safety and wellbeing. We ask you to treat others with respect and kindness during our social events (and on social media). Attendees must behave in a safe, sensible and socially acceptable manner. Divisive or un-toward behaviours are not welcome and we reserve the right to refuse entry to, or remove offending attendees/members from, an event without refund in this case. (In the case of inappropriate comments made on social media, your account may get blocked.)
Such behaviours may earn offenders a strike in accordance with the House Rules in 4.3. In extreme cases, membership may be suspended for life (no refunds). Follow the house rule as stated in 4.3.
If you DO NOT wish to receive an SMS with contact details from those requesting this of us, you should notify the host during the event. Your name will be noted.
4.10 Termination by Mojo Mingle
Except to the extent we have agreed otherwise in a separate written Agreement an authorised officer of Mojo Mingle may terminate your right to use the Services at any time for your violation or breach of these Terms of Service including, but not limited to, the House Rules at Clause 4.3;
Your misuse or abuse of the Services; or if allowing you to access and use the Services would violate any applicable local, state, national and other laws, rules and regulations or would expose Mojo Mingle to legal liability.
We will use reasonable efforts to provide you notice of any such termination. Furthermore you agree that Mojo Mingle shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any such termination of your right to use or otherwise access the Services.
Termination will be most often incorporated as part of the 3 strikes rule as enunciated in Clause 4.3 or for any other significant breach of Services at the sole discretion of the Director.
4.11 Termination by You.
Except to the extent you have agreed otherwise in a separate written Agreement you may terminate your access to the Services and these Terms of Service by logging into our website to cancel your social plan (4.5). Once your social plan (membership) is cancelled you are no longer entitled to attend discounted Mojo Mingle events unless the difference in ticket price is paid prior to the event.
5. Survival of Terms.
All provisions of these Terms of Service that by their nature should survive termination of these Terms of Service shall survive (including, without limitation, all limitations on liability, releases, indemnification obligations, disclaimers of warranties, agreements to arbitrate, choices of law and judicial forum and intellectual property protections and licences).
6. Other Services
Mojo Mingle provides referrals and other Services which are subject to change without notice. This includes but is not limited to:
i.Personal Development Workshops, Talks, Seminars etc
ii.Coaching (Dating / Life / Business etc)
Third party providers (coaches / presenters etc) may collaborate with Mojo Mingle with respect to a separate Service Level Agreement which defines the roles of both parties.
iii. Matching and Introductions
Mojo Mingle encourages event attendees to look out for each other. Everyone, therefore, is a match-maker. If you meet someone at an event who you believe may be a good match for another member, simply complete a post-event feedback form and make your suggestion (with a brief reason which we pass on to the two involved). Mojo Mingle can contact both parties to offer an introduction.
Introductions may be arranged between two active members who have been nominated by someone else. If you’ve been nominated as a potential match, we’ll SMS you. You can decline the invitation to meet your match or you can accept. Mojo Mingle charges a $50 co-ordination fee per person to set up an introductory meeting. The meeting is usually scheduled to last an hour, in a public space (cafe or bar) local to both people, at a time that’s convenient. This is similar to a blind date.
NOTE: Mojo Mingle does not conduct background checks or request police checks on members.
Once the meeting date, time and location are agreed upon by both parties, the meeting is locked in and Mojo Mingle makes the venue reservation. It is important to arrive on time and to be friendly and sociable during the meeting, for the whole hour. The meeting should be a phone-free zone. Thereafter you may part ways. To avoid awkwardness we recommend not giving your details to each other during the meeting. Instead, relax and enjoy sharing stories. Mojo Mingle can forward your details on, by your request, after the meeting. Bring cash in order to cover you own expenses eg food and drinks.
7. Professional Match-Making Service
Offline Valentine is our sister service which runs events that use matchmaking. We provide referrals to other professional Match-Making Services. Contact us via Facebook Messenger to find out more.
