 TERMS OF USE AND SERVICE

It is your responsibility to protect your own password(s) to our site - it is the responsibility of any end user. Occasionally there may be interruptions of services that may be beyond our control and hence we assume no responsibility for any data that might be lost while information is being transmitted over the Internet. We try to be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days per week, but cannot guarantee it. You understand and acknowledge this. And we also have the right to discontinue or change any aspect or feature of CityBlossom---like hours of availability, content, or even the equipment needed to access or use the site. And we can change the speeds or methods or transmission at any time. 

Further, we are not liable for any damages to the end user’s equipment as a result of their using our site. The end user has to maintain all computer software, hardware, etc to access and use the CItyBlossom site. All sites, now or hereafter, whether any individual, merchant specific site or city or state specific site are private property, including those with external links that connect to our site. And all users must restrict their use to lawful purposes. No one may post or transmit any material that either infringes upon the rights of others, or violates those rights. This prohibits the transmission of any material that is unlawful or defamatory, vulgar, obscene, or where the use would constitute a criminal offense or give rise to civil liability. And no end user may use our site to promote commercial, political, or even non-commercial solicitations that would be either potentially competitive with CityBlossom or indirectly competitive to CityBlossom. Any of our affiliates, subsidiaries, licensors or other third party content providers all have a right to both assert and enforce these provisions above. 

As noted previously, all end users agree that the use of this site is at their risk and there are no warranties either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of title, merchantability, or fitness of purpose. 

This disclaimer applies to any damages or injuries caused by any failure of performance, or omission, error, defect, delay, computer viruses, communication failure or theft or destruction or unauthorized access. Liability for all causes of action, including but not limited to breach of contract, tortious conduct, and negligence are expressly disclaimed. 

Everything that is located on the CityBlossom site and microsites are our exclusive property and cannot be copied without our express written approval. Any violation could result in civil or criminal penalties for copyright, trademark, and intellectual property rights infringement. The CityBlossom site is protected, with all of its contents, by copyright as a collective work under the copyright laws. If any of our copyright material is downloaded, the end user acknowledges they have no ownership rights by doing so. Accordingly, nothing on our site can be deemed to be in the public domain, but rather is our exclusive property. 

Hence the end user cannot upload or post on this site any material that is protected by copyright, trademark, or other proprietary right without our express approval in writing. Violators of this protection will be liable for any and all damages that result from such infringement. 

CityBlossom has the right to monitor the content of its site at all times, including but not limited to chat rooms and sites that are included as part of its site. And we may remove any material that we believe in our sole discretion is in violation of these provisions or that we find otherwise objectionable. At the same time, we expressly disclaim any liability concerning communications or actions taken by an end user that may result from the end user’s access to our site and related sites. If you submit any material to any public area of this site, the end users warrant that the owner of this material has expressly granted CItyBlossom the right to use this content as royalty-free, that such right is irrevocable, perpetual, and a non-exclusive right that licenses CityBlossom to use and reproduce and publish such material anywhere that CityBlossom does business, either now or in the future. And the end user gives CityBlossom the right to edit, copy and publish any material that the end user made available to us. Also, the end user indemnifies CityBlossom from and against any claims, expenses, attorney’s fees, etc that might arise from the use of our site or related sites by the end user. 

In managing its site, CityBlossom reserves the right to terminate this agreement at any time, and such termination may include the password and account of the end user. Please note that CityBlossom is a trademark and we reserve all rights expressly to its use anywhere, at any time. 

We wish to point out that because we are an internet service provider and not a publisher of content that we have created (but rather content is created by third parties and end users) , that we have no editorial control over content, and that we make no warranties that we have any such control. Further, any opinions or services or offers made available by third parties are those of the author or distributor and not of CityBlossom. As such, neither we nor any third party provider of such information can or will guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the content, the merchantability or the fitness for any particular purpose. Only the end user is held to be responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the content available through us, either on our own site or on other third party web sites. And if an end user decides to access any third party websites that link to ours, they do so at their own risk. 

Further, without express written approval provided to any end user by CityBlossom, no one may provide a link to our site from any other website. And if such approval is given by CityBlossom, it may be revoked at any time. 

If you decide to place an order, you must understand that you are making an offer to us that you will purchase the voucher or certificate that is emailed to you and you must agree to all the terms and conditions that are stated herein, both above and below. 

You must open an account to purchase anything, by completing the requested information on the subscription page of CityBlossom. Please note that the voucher/ certificate that you purchase is redeemable for goods and services by only the seller of the goods and services (the merchant) and no goods and services are available from CityBlossom. Rather CityBlossom is a merely an advertising agent who has been paid to advertise and promote the goods and services, and not to provide them. Only the merchant sells the goods and services. 

It is generally understood that a restaurant is a merchant who offers food and beverages for sale, and special additional terms relate to this kind of service as advertised through CityBlossom. For example, redemption frequency will be determined by the restaurant in their sole discretion depending upon availability, reservations previously made, space capacity, etc. This information will be generally stated by CityBlossom on the voucher/certificate. Such vouchers cannot be used for gratuities or taxes or prior balances unless the restaurant permits such use. Similarly, permitting the use of the voucher for the purchase of alcoholic beverages is in the sole discretion of the restaurant and must be done in compliance with local state law. Further, restaurant certificates/ vouchers are valid for “in dining” rather than for food delivery, unless specifically noted. 

Neither the restaurant nor CityBlossom will be responsible for lost or stolen restaurant vouchers/ certificates or related reference numbers. Any decision to issue restaurant credit is in the sole discretion of the restaurant, unless governed by local state law, and not subject to control or oversight by CityBlossom. If anyone should try to redeem the certificate/voucher in any way that is inconsistent with the terms expressed both above and below, then the voucher/certificate shall be deemed void unless prohibited by law. Any reproduction, sale, trade, or exchange of a restaurant voucher/certificate will be prohibited unless done in compliance with state or local law. 

As a general rule, if you redeem the voucher/certificate for less than its face value, you will not get cash back or credit or even a new voucher equal to the difference between the face value and the amount you redeemed unless required by local law. And the use of that residual value will be governed by either local law or by the policies of the merchants themselves. 

Any voucher/certificate expires on the date specified, except that the merchant may continue to redeem the unused cash value you paid to the extent required by applicable state law. Note that there may be statutory limitations on the extent to which the voucher/certificate may be used for the purchase of alcoholic beverages, and all restaurants are responsible for complying with local laws, statutes, and codes governing the subject. CityBlossom cannot be responsible for the redemption policies expressed by those laws, statutes, and codes nor in the way those various regulations are interpreted by the restaurants. 

You can always cancel your purchase before a deal has been closed. Once a deal is closed there will be no refunds unless you are unable to redeem a voucher because the merchant has gone out of business. 

Goods, i.e. merchandise, will be governed by additional rules. For example, shipping and handling expenses cannot be covered by the voucher value— only merchandise itself can be redeemed for the voucher value. Any reproduction of a voucher/certificate is expressly prohibited unless in compliance with local law. As a general rule, the voucher/certificate redemption is limited to one voucher per redemption, unless the merchant specifies in advance that vouchers can be combined with other promotional vouchers or certificates. Any redemption of a voucher/certificate inconsistent with the terms above and below will be considered null and void. 

Although you can choose not to continue to be a subscriber at any time, we will be sending you emails about promotions and occasional business details for which we need your permission. You have to create an online account to purchase our products and services, and you should know that when you place an order at any time for a ‘deal’ that is advertised on our web page, that this is considered ‘an offer’ to purchase products and services by you, and both CityBlossom restrictions and ‘merchant’ restrictions may apply. An explanation of these restrictions will appear below. 

If you purchase offers, certificates or vouchers through us, as a result of buying a ‘deal’, you will receive an email voucher or certificate--you need to know that we take no responsibility for the product or service that you purchase, and we make no warranty to you or anyone who uses the product or service as to its quality or safety. Occasionally, products or services that you may buy can involve risk of bodily harm for which we cannot take any responsibility, and whoever is the ‘end user’ must assume full responsibility for such risk. 

And we make an important distinction here, that it is ‘the Merchant’ who is providing the products and services, and CityBlossom only transmits a voucher that can be redeemed at the merchant’s place of business. All vouchers printed from our website are subject to CityBlossom and to the merchant’s terms and conditions. The issuer of a restaurant-specific voucher is the restaurant; the issuer of a merchant-specific voucher is the merchant. They and they alone are responsible for any and all injuries, illnesses, claims, damages, liabilities and costs that may be suffered or incurred by the user of the certificate. 

Local laws will apply to redemption extensions as they relate to a user who has a continuing cash value beyond the date set for expiration on the voucher. Where it exists, this is a statutory provision that exists and applies to the merchant and not to CityBlossom because CityBlossom is not a merchant and therefore has none of the obligations of a merchant. 

This agreement above constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to all subject matter contained herein. It should be especially noted that under England and Wales law if the merchant is deemed to be a health care provider, any patient or person responsible for payment has the right to refuse to pay, cancel payment, or be reimbursed for payment of any service, examination, or treatment that is performed within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement. your order is deemed to be completed within the UK and shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with English Law. These terms and conditions (and any dispute, controversy, proceedings or claims of whatever nature in relation to them) shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with English Law and the English Courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction in relation thereto.
