Part I – Reservation Services

  1.  Restaurant Reservations: Table.ng provides the Reservation Services to User for the purpose of assisting User in securing dining reservations at participating third-party restaurants (each, a “Restaurant”). In response to a User’s online request for a Restaurant reservation through the Table.ng Site or Table.ng Application, Table.ng directly contacts the Restaurant’s computerized database of reservations. The availability of reservations is determined at the time of User’s query. Once a reservation is made by User through the Table.ng Site or Table.ng Application, Table.ng will provide confirmation of the reservation to User by email and text message. By using the Reservation Services, User agrees to receive reservation confirmations by email and text message after booking a reservation through the Reservation Services.
  2.  No-Show Policy: Table.ng is committed to providing superior quality services to Users and Restaurants. To assist us in maintaining a consistently high level of service for the Restaurants and their patrons, Users must cancel any reservations that they will not be unable to honour at least 30 minutes in advance of the reservation. You may cancel your reservation via the Table.ng Site or Table.ng Application or by calling the Restaurant directly. Some Restaurants may require a debit or credit card number to finalize your reservation, particularly for private dining services. In order to use the Reservation Services for these Restaurants, you must provide valid debit or credit card information. To confirm that the debit or credit card information you have provided is accurate, we may place a temporary authorization on your debit or credit card at the time you provide your debit or credit card information. After we verify that your debit or credit card information is accurate, usually within a few days, the authorization will be removed. You may be required to cancel your reservation in accordance with the Restaurant’s cancellation policy, which is disclosed at the time the reservation is made. Table.ng uses this debit or credit card information as described in our privacy policy and shall have no liability for any charges made to the debit or credit card account for any failure to cancel your reservation in accordance with a Restaurant’s cancellation policy.

If you are unable to keep your reservation and you fail to cancel at least 30 minutes in advance of the reservation, Table.ng will send you an email or text message letting you know that our records indicate that you were a no-show. By using the Reservation Services, User agrees to receive no-show notifications by email or text message after a report that your reservation was not honoured, whether or not that was in fact the case. Your Account will be terminated if you are a no-show for four reservations within a 12-month period. If you receive a no-show notification email or text message in error, please contact us information on how to dispute it. User agrees that all final no-show determinations will be made by Table.ng in its sole discretion.

  1.  Table.ng Dining Rewards. User may be able to participate in Table.ng’s User rewards program (“Table.ng Dining Rewards”). Participation is subject to the Table.ng dining rewards terms and conditions.
  2.  Usage Guidelines. User agrees to use the Reservation Services only to book reservations at Restaurants and then honour those reservations by arriving at the Restaurants on time and ordering and paying for meals. User further agrees not to book more than one reservation for User’s personal use during any one-meal time (e.g., lunch, dinner, etc.). User may be able to book multiple reservations through Table.ng’s Administrative Assistant program. Resale or attempted resale of reservations is prohibited and is grounds for, among other things, cancellation of your reservations or termination of your access to the Services.

Again, we cannot take action unless you give us all the required information.

  1.  Severability. If any of the provisions, or portions thereof, of this Agreement are found to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, then, that provision (or portion thereof) notwithstanding, this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and such provision or portion thereof shall be deemed omitted.
  2.  Assignment. This Agreement and the rights granted and obligations undertaken hereunder may not be transferred, assigned, or delegated in any manner by User, but may be freely transferred, assigned, or delegated by Table.ng.
  3.  Waiver. Any waiver of any provision of this Agreement, or a delay by any party in the enforcement of any right hereunder, shall neither be construed as a continuing waiver nor create an expectation of non-enforcement of that or any other provision or right.
  4.  ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER, CLASS ACTION WAIVER, AND FORUM SELECTION CLAUSE. Any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action) between you and the Table.ng Parties or their successors or assigns shall exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration.

You and Table.ng must abide by the following rules:

(1) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR TABLE.NG MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING;

(2) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF;

(3) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Table.ng will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation,

(4) Table.ng also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration;

(5) The arbitrator shall honour claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law;

(6) The arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award;

(7) The arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and

(8) Each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded shall be determined by the applicable law.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Table.ng may bring an individual action in small claims court.
