Welcome to Planned!
Welcome to Planned’s event planning platform, accessible at https://app.planned.com/, which includes all subdomains and sub-pages, present and future (the “Platform”). We are thrilled that you have chosen to visit the Platform or to use the Platform to either (i) plan and coordinate your events; or (ii) make your goods, services and venues available for others’ event-planning purposes.
The Platform is used by both Suppliers and Clients (as defined below) to plan and coordinate Clients’ events together. A Client will choose from among the goods, services and venues (together, the “Supplier Offerings”) available to purchase or rent from Suppliers on the Platform, which are browsable by Clients from Suppliers’ unique page listings (each, a “Supplier Listing”). The Platform facilitates Clients’ browsing of Supplier Offerings, allows Suppliers and Clients to communicate with each other via the Platform’s messaging system, acts as the organizing hub for Clients’ events and ultimately permits Suppliers and Clients to carry out the transactions required for a Client’s purchase or rental of Supplier Offerings.
