4. Restaurant reservation
4.1. You can make online reservations via the Site with restaurants which have subscribed to our services and accept online table booking through our reservation system (each a “Restaurant” and collectively “Restaurants”). The reservation is agreed exclusively between the Restaurant and you under mediation by us, whereby we do not act as an agent or representative, but only as a messenger. You shall ensure the accuracy of all information provided in connection with your reservation, including without limitation the intended dining date and time, number of diners and your contact details.
4.2. Our reservation function is a service provided free of charge to you. Part of the reservation function is an automatic check of the Restaurant’s expected available capacity at the time of the desired reservation. This expected available capacity is calculated at the time of your request, and is based on saved settings, existing reservations and other settings of the Restaurant. The Restaurants are exclusively responsible for maintaining and keeping their settings up to date. Outside the technical functioning of our reservation service, we accept no risk for availability or the success of reservations with the Restaurant chosen by you.
4.3. Under no circumstances shall we entertain a reservation request for a dining time which is less than the time as determined by the relevant Restaurant.
4.4. By making a reservation through our system, you acknowledge and agree that the information (including but not limited to your name, email address, telephone number and special request(s) (if any)) which you provide in your reservation request is necessary for the processing of your reservation and will be passed on to the relevant Restaurant. In no event shall we be responsible or liable to you for any subsequent use of such information by the Restaurants which has been properly passed on to them hereunder.
4.5. Some of the Restaurants may require your credit card information, including cardholder’s name, card number and expiry date, for security purposes or holding an amount, as designated by the related Restaurant, as deposit to guarantee your reservation for a particular timeslot.

For the avoidance of doubt, resale or attempted resale of reservations is expressly prohibited. Where you provide us with information relating to any third party, you shall be responsible for obtaining such third party’s prior consent to the disclosure of the same to us, and you warrant that such third party has agreed to the collection and use of the said information in accordance with these Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy Statement.
4.7. Upon acceptance of your reservation by the relevant Restaurant, you will receive from us a confirmation email at your designated email account setting out the particulars of the reservation. For the avoidance of doubt, the reservation confirmation will serve as the Restaurant’s acceptance of your booking of table but may not necessarily indicate its promise to satisfy your special request made under the reservation, if any.
4.8. You may vary or cancel your reservation via our system. If your variation or cancellation of the reservation is accepted by the relevant Restaurant, you will receive from us a revised reservation confirmation or confirmation of cancellation of reservation (as the case may be) in the form of email at your designated email account.
4.9. We make no guarantee that any of your requests in respect of a reservation (including the special request made thereunder, if any) or variation or cancellation thereof made in accordance herewith will be timely processed or accepted by the relevant Restaurant. We do not accept any liability whatsoever and howsoever arising from or in connection with any delay in the processing or non-acceptance of your request on the part of the relevant Restaurant.
4.10. You shall honour your reservation by patronising the relevant Restaurant on the dining date at the time specified in the reservation confirmation, unless you have cancelled your reservation in accordance with these Terms of Use.
4.11. If unable to honour a reservation, you must cancel as soon as possible and in accordance with any cancellation policy of the Restaurant. Other rights notwithstanding, we reserve the right to deactivate the reservation function and/or other services for you if you do not honour several reservations without cancelling them (“no show”), if we have already informed you hereof to no effect. The Restaurant’s rights relating to reservations or no shows remain unaffected.
4.12. We reserve the right to cancel any reservation made by you, in which event, we shall notify you of it by email. We shall not be liable for any consequences of such cancellation howsoever arisen.
