Event Terms & Conditions
Our In-Store Events
Buff City Soap, LLC (“Buff City,” “we” or “us”) hereby provides the Terms & Conditions governing events taking place on location at Buff City Soap stores (“Events”), such as bath bomb making parties. These Terms & Conditions establish an agreement that is binding on all attendees at Events regardless as to whether the Event is at Buff City store or a Buff City franchisee store.
Agreement to Terms and Conditions
Participation in an Event constitutes attendees’ full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Terms & Conditions and the decisions of Buff City and/or the applicable store in administering the Event, which are final and binding. You agree to review these Terms and Conditions periodically and shall be bound by any modifications. If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions, or any subsequent modifications, your sole and exclusive remedy is to refrain from booking or attending the Event.
Pricing for Events may vary by store location. When booking Events through Buff City’s online booking platform available at www.partywithbuff.com (“Booking Website”), Event pricing will be available to view after you have selected a store location.
Deposit, Cancellations and Refunds
To book an Event, a non-refundable deposit equal to 20% of the Event booking price is required at the time of booking. The remainder of the Event booking price is due in store on the day of the Event. If you need to cancel your Event booking, you must call the store at which the Event is scheduled. If you cancel your booking more than 72 hours before the Event, you may have your non-refundable deposit applied to a future Event that takes place no more than thirty (30) days from the cancelled Event date. If you cancel your booking less than 72 hours before the Event, or if you no-show on the day of the Event without cancelling, your non-refundable deposit will be forfeited.
Each Buff City store reserves the right to cancel the Event if it is not able to provide the Event facilities at the scheduled time. In such instance, the previously paid fees will be refunded to the Event booking party or, if requested by the booking party, the Buff City store may attempt to reschedule the Event.
Late Arrival to Events
If you are running late to an Event, please contact the store as soon as possible. Events are scheduled for fixed times and generally cannot be extended or changed. Any extension or changes are subject to the policies and availability at the applicable store, and any applicable fees.
By booking an Event, you consent to receiving operational email messages from the Buff City store related to the Event, such as booking confirmations, booking reminders, refund notifications, and Event cancellation notices.
Conduct During the Event
All Event attendees understand and agree that participation in the Event is conditioned upon compliance with all Buff City rules, policies, and procedures, and that violation or failure to comply may result in dismissal from, or termination of, the Event. Without limiting the foregoing, conduct that may result in dismissal or termination of the Event includes, without limitation, conduct that: (1) appears to violate any Buff City policies, rules or applicable laws; (2) is libelous or harassing, abusive, vulgar, sexually explicit, or inappropriate with respect to race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity or other intrinsic characteristics; (3) name-calls, insults, taunts, ridicules, mocks, bullies, stalks or otherwise harasses another person or attacks the character or damages or has the potential to damage the reputation of another person.
Party Supplies, Food and Drink
Most Buff City stores permit outside food and drink during Events, but please contact your store in advance of the Event to confirm. The online questionnaire you will complete prior to booking may allow you to input preferences regarding party favors, add-ons, food, drink, and special requests. If you have questions about topics not covered by the questionnaire, please contact your Buff City store.
