Event Protection Policy
We strongly encourage clients to work with vendors before opening a claim relating to referral and scheduling of entertainment or event services.
In the instance of a vendor cancellation, the vendor must notify The Bash of the cancellation no less than 14 days prior to the event date. For any event scheduled within 14 days of the event date, the vendor must notify The Bash of the cancellation within 24 hours of scheduling the event.
If the vendor notifies The Bash of the cancellation within the required time frame, The Bash will refund the fee, and the client will not be permitted to post a review.
Should the vendor fail to notify The Bash of the cancellation within the required timeframe, the vendor will forfeit the fee, and the client will be permitted to post a review. Further, The Bash reserves the right to issue a “no-show” on the vendor’s account leading to possible suspension or termination of the vendor’s membership.
The Bash will use commercially reasonable efforts to help clients navigate our site to find a suitable replacement vendor for the client’s event. If the replacement vendor is hired by the client, the canceling vendor will still forfeit the fee, and the replacement vendor’s fee will be waived.
Any client deposit ($2,000 maximum) and/or balance payments ($5,000 maximum) processed through The Bash payment system will be refunded to the client by The Bash. The vendor will then be invoiced by The Bash for the return of these funds.
Any client deposit and/or balance payments made to the vendor outside of The Bash payment system must be returned to the client in full directly by the vendor. Failure to do so may lead to possible suspension or termination of the vendor’s membership with The Bash.
In the instance of a client cancellation, we ask that the client notify The Bash as far in advance of the event date as possible.
The client will forfeit any non-refundable payments made prior to the cancellation date. Any refundable payments made by the client through The Bash payment system with respect to the cancelled event will be returned to the client by The Bash provided that the client notifies The Bash of the cancellation prior to the refundable date.
The return of any client deposit and/or balance payments made to the vendor outside The Bash payment system must be negotiated directly with the vendor.
The client will not be permitted to post a review.
