1. Introduction, Acceptance, Definitions, and Modifications
Welcome to Planned! We hope you will enjoy and appreciate using our 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.
If you are using the Platform and accepting or agreeing to these TOU on behalf of a company, association or other legal entity (a “Legal Entity”), you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that Legal Entity to these TOU and, in such event, "you" and "your" will refer and apply to that Legal Entity.
By entering into these TOU, you acknowledge and agree that if you circumvent the Platform to purchase, rent or sell any Supplier Offerings listed on the Platform outside of the Platform, you may be banned from using the Platform, at our sole discretion.
The Platform is owned and operated by Planned Enterprise Inc., a duly-incorporated company located in Montreal, Canada at the address listed below. Where the present TOU refer to “Planned” they may refer to Planned Enterprise Inc. and / or its affiliates, and their respective shareholders, officers, directors, employees, agents, partners, principals, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively “Representatives”), depending on the context. Any reference to “we”, “our”, or “us” in these TOU shall also refer to Planned Enterprise Inc. and / or its Representatives.
In these TOU, a Platform visitor or user may be referred to as “you” or “your”. When a Platform user is seeking to plan an event, they may be referred to as a “Client”; when a Platform user is making available Supplier Offerings for others’ event-planning purposes, they may be referred to as a “Supplier”. When a Client or Supplier is logged in to the Platform, they may be referred to in these TOU as a “Logged-In User”.
Planned reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to modify or replace any of the TOU. Any changes to the TOU can be found at this URL. It is your responsibility to check the TOU periodically for changes. Your use of the Platform following the posting of any changes to the TOU constitutes acceptance of those changes. If we make any substantial changes to the TOU that materially affect your legal relationship with Planned, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you by posting a prominent notice when you use the Platform for the first time following those changes, or if you have an account, by email to the email address associated with your account.

In order to be able to plan an event or to purchase, rent or sell Supplier Offerings through the Platform, you will be required to create an account. Accounts are available to anyone who receives an email invitation from us to create an account or who is provided with an account by the company for which they work, subject to the restrictions and conditions as outlined elsewhere in these TOU. Accounts may be approved or rejected by Planned, which shall be at our sole discretion for any reason.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and are responsible for all activities that occur under your account whether by you or any third party. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security regarding your account.
If you are a Logged-in User, it is strongly suggested that you log out of your account at the end of every session, or not leave a logged-in account unattended for any period of time. Planned and its Representatives will not be held liable for any losses or damages, direct or indirect, pecuniary or non-pecuniary, resulting from your failure to log out at the end of the session, an unattended logged-in session, or a third party using the Platform with your Account Information and accessing your account through any means, and disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
Planned reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account, at its sole discretion, at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, whether you have violated the letter or spirit of the TOU, as more fully described below.
b. Age Requirements
In order to create an account on the Platform, you affirm that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age or over, or the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside and from which you access the Platform, where the age of majority is greater than eighteen (18) years of age.
c. Account Information
By submitting Account Information, you represent and warrant that the Account Information is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge. Submitting false or misleading Account Information may result in you being banned from using the Platform, at our sole discretion.
5. The Transactional Process between Suppliers and Clients Using the Platform
Please note that any Supplier or Client who circumvents the Platform to purchase, rent or sell any Supplier Offering from a Supplier Listing outside of the Platform may be banned from using the Platform, at our sole discretion.
The purchase, rental and sale of Supplier Offerings through the Platform proceeds as described in this section. b. Supplier Listings If you are a Supplier, we will take care of producing Supplier Listings on your behalf. As a general principle, you may have an unlimited number of Supplier Listings. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Planned reserves the right to limit the number of your Supplier Listings at its sole discretion. Planned also reserves the right to refuse to accept any Supplier Listing for any reason, at its sole discretion.
Without limiting the generality of the Disclaimer of Warranties further in these TOU, Planned and / or its Representatives shall not be responsible for any loss or damage, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting from Planned’s refusal to post a Supplier Listing on the Platform or any delay in posting a Supplier Listing and Planned disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
c. Communications Between Clients and Suppliers
Without limiting the generality of the Disclaimer of Warranties further in these TOU, Planned and / or its Representatives shall not be responsible for any loss or damage, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting from any communications between Clients and Suppliers, whether through the Platform or otherwise, and Planned disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
d. The Purchase or Rental Process
Once a Client has identified a Supplier Offering that it would like to purchase or rent for its event, the Supplier and the Client will communicate with each other to finalize the purchase or rental process as described below. The process set out below is an illustration of how this process may occur. Please note that not every Client-Supplier interaction will include each step set out below and that the order of these steps is not strict and may vary depending on the specific interactions between each Client and Supplier.
- The Client contacts the Supplier via the Platform’s messaging system to confirm availability of the Supplier Offering and to request a “Quote” for the Supplier Offering in question;
- The Client and the Supplier will negotiate the terms of the Quote until a finalized Quote is agreed upon by the Client and the Supplier, including a definitive price for the Supplier Offering;
- The Supplier will then share its form of “Contract” (if any) with the Client for execution. If the Supplier provides the Client with a Contract, the Client must upload a signed copy of the Contract to the Platform;
- The Supplier will upload a “Supplier Invoice” to the Platform, reflecting the terms of the finalized Quote;
- At Planned’s discretion, the Client will then receive for review either the Supplier Invoice or a “Planned Invoice” from Planned, reflecting the exact same terms as the Supplier Invoice (both of the Supplier Invoice and the Planned Invoice hereinafter referred to as the “Invoice”);
- Once the Client has been provided with the Invoice, the Platform will display the “Total Price” for the Supplier Offering and the “Price Per Person” based on the total number of event attendees that the Client has identified will be attending the event for the Supplier Offering in question. The Platform will indicate that the Invoice is unpaid and that the Client has a balance outstanding;
- The Client will be presented with two options – payment of the Total Price for the Supplier Offering which shall include any applicable taxes and a 3% payment processing fee, or payment of a “Deposit” in the amount of a percentage of the Total Price as selected by the Supplier, as described in more detail further in this section. Deposits are required at the full discretion of the Supplier;
- The Client will pay the Deposit, the Total Price or the difference between the two (the “Balance Due” and together with the Deposit and the Total Price, the “Client Payment”) by clicking Pay Now on the Platform;
- Once payment of the Total Price is made in full, the Platform will mark the Invoice as paid, with no balance outstanding; and
- The delivery, access to or making available of the Supplier Offering by the Supplier to the Client will happen in accordance with the terms agreed to between the Client and the Supplier (whether in the Contract or otherwise).
Without limiting the generality of the Disclaimer of Warranties further in these TOU, Planned and / or its Representatives shall not be responsible for (i) the negotiation, the content or the application of the Quote, the Contract or the Invoice (or any other documents exchanged between Clients and Suppliers, whether through the Platform or otherwise); (ii) the Client’s payment of the Deposit, the Balance Due or the Total Price or the timing of any such payment; (iii) the delivery, access to or making available of the Supplier Offering by the Supplier to the Client; or (iv) any loss or damage, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting from any of the above, and Planned disclaims any responsibility in this regard. e. Deposits As referenced above, Deposits will be required at the full discretion of the Supplier. The amount of the Deposit, the timing of payment for the Deposit and the reimbursement of any Deposit are all subject to each Supplier’s policies, which the Supplier is solely responsible for communicating to the Client. Planned disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
As referenced above, Deposits will be required at the full discretion of the Supplier. The amount of the Deposit, the timing of payment for the Deposit and the reimbursement of any Deposit are all subject to each Supplier’s policies, which the Supplier is solely responsible for communicating to the Client. Planned disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
f. Payment by Credit Card
All Credit Card Billing Information is collected by the Third-Party Payment Processor on its own secured servers. Planned does not have access to any credit card information, nor can it be responsible for any breach of information caused by faulty programming or malicious users on the servers of the Third-Party Payment Processor. Non-financial information will, however, be available to Planned for bill-making and record-keeping purposes.
If you are a Client and you pay for either a Deposit, the Total Amount or the Balance Due by credit card, the Platform will update the status of your payment within 24 hours of payment.
g. Payments by Direct Deposit
If you are a Client and wish to pay any part of the Client Payment by direct deposit, you will receive Planned’s banking information via the Platform and be expected to complete the direct deposit in a timely manner.
If you are a Client and you pay for either a Deposit, the Total Amount or the Balance Due by direct deposit, the Platform will update the status of your payment once Planned receives the funds in its bank account, which can take approximately 7 days.
h. Planned Commission and Supplier Payouts
As will have been separately agreed to in a contract between Planned and each Supplier (the “Marketing Agreement”), Planned will charge each Supplier a commission on all Supplier Offering purchase or rental transactions (the “Commission”). Within 4 business days of Planned’s receipt of a Client Payment, Planned will transfer the Client Payment, less the Commission and any applicable taxes payable on the Commission that Planned is required to remit to the appropriate tax authorities (the “Supplier Payout”), to the Supplier via wire transfer. At the time of the Supplier Payout the Supplier shall receive a supporting bill from Planned via email (the “Supporting Bill”) indicating the Client Payment, the Commission, and the amount of the Supplier Payout.
Please note that, as a Supplier, you are prohibited from marking up the price of your Supplier Offering(s) to compensate for the Commission that is owed to Planned. Any Supplier that marks up the price of its Supplier Offering(s) on the Platform may be banned from using the Platform, at our sole discretion.
i. Refunds and Planned’s Cancellation Policy
Planned will only process refunds for a Client Payment in accordance with a Supplier’s refund policy, which will have been previously communicated to the Client in the Supplier Listing, Contract, Quote and / or Invoice (or otherwise). As a Client, any available refunds will be refunded to you via the same payment method used to make the Client Payment.
Notwithstanding the above, Planned guarantees Clients the opportunity to cancel their booking of a Supplier Offering within 24 hours of (i) a Client’s payment of a Deposit (if required) or the Total Price (if no Deposit is required); or (ii) the uploading of a Client-executed Contract to the Platform, whichever occurs first. This Planned cancellation policy provides Clients with a full refund of the Client Payment made at the moment of cancellation, regardless of a Supplier’s cancellation or refund policy. However, this Planned cancellation policy does not apply within 48 hours of the event in question. As a Supplier, you hereby consent, without reservation, to this Planned policy.
j. Currency Conversion
As a Client or a Supplier, you acknowledge and agree that in the course of making or receiving payments, or issuing refunds, various currency exchanges may occur. Without limiting the generality of the Disclaimer of Warranties further in these TOU, Planned and / or its Representatives shall not be responsible for any loss or damage, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting from any changes in exchange rates or losses suffered as a result of any currency conversion, and Planned disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
6. Additional Supplier Acknowledgements
As a Supplier, in addition to the other obligations found elsewhere in these TOU, you acknowledge and agree that you shall:
- Not sell or make available to rent any Supplier Offering that violates any applicable law; Not sell or make available to rent any Supplier Offering that you do not have the legal authority (including but not limited to any necessary ownership rights) to sell or make available to rent;
- Not sell or make available to rent any Supplier Offering that does not meet the description in your Supplier Listing;
- Not sell or make available to rent a Supplier Offering whose sale or rental you are unable to fulfill;
- Provide the necessary banking and wire transfer information to Planned for you to receive Supplier Payouts (“Payout Information”);
- Be responsible for paying any applicable income taxes or any similar government charges on Supplier Payouts that you receive; and
- Remit all applicable sales taxes in connection with the provision of your Supplier Offering(s) as collected by Planned on your behalf to the appropriate tax authorities.
Failure to adhere to any of these requirements may result in the cancellation of your Supplier account, at Planned’s sole discretion.
7. Disclaimer Regarding the Purchase or Rental of Supplier Offerings
While Planned is involved in the production and uploading of Supplier Listings, Planned does not examine any actual Supplier Offering (unless special arrangements are made between Planned and a Client, the terms of which shall be governed outside of these TOU) and makes no representations or warranties whatsoever regarding Supplier Offerings listed on the Platform, including with respect to any discrepancy between an actual Supplier Offering and the description of such Supplier Offering in a Supplier Listing. If you are a Client purchasing or renting Supplier Offerings, none of the Supplier Offerings are controlled by Planned, but by each individual Supplier. If you as a Client have any issues with, or questions about any Supplier Offerings, or any Supplier Offerings that you have purchased or rented using the Platform, you should contact the Supplier through the Platform or otherwise, except as otherwise provided for in these TOU.
Without limiting the generality of the Disclaimer of Warranties further in these TOU, Planned and / or its Representatives shall not be responsible for any loss or damage, pecuniary or otherwise, to either a Client or a Supplier resulting from a Supplier Listing, a Supplier Offering, the purchase or rental of Supplier Offerings from a Supplier, Client’s actions in connection with the purchase or rental of a Supplier Offering, the failure to complete a purchase or rental from a Supplier or the use of any Supplier Offering purchased or rented through the Platform, and Planned disclaims any responsibility thereto. Moreover, Planned shall not be involved in the resolution of any dispute between a Client and a Supplier and disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
