We reserve the right to charge interest on all amounts payable to us from the Service Provider which are not paid by the relevant due date at the annual rate of 4% above the official base rate from time to time of the Bank of Ireland. Such interest will accrue on a daily basis from the date on which payment became overdue up to the date on which we receive the full outstanding amount together with all accrued interest.
In the event of a dispute between us and the Service Provider, any undisputed amount of Commission will be paid in accordance with the previous section. The Service Provider must notify us of its disagreement within 14 days of receipt of any Statement setting out in detail the reason. If the Service Provider fails to do so, the Statement shall be deemed accepted by the Service Provider.
The Service Provider is responsible for withholding and reporting taxes applicable to any commission in accordance with all applicable laws and the requests of the relevant tax authorities, including for any interest and penalties imposed for late payment or failure to withhold. If required, the Service Provider shall be solely responsible for agreeing with the relevant tax authorities on the tax treatment of any commission. The Service Provider shall at the request of OK Who’s Next? provide copies of tax payment certificates and/or tax exemption certificates. The Service Provider represents and warrants that it is duly registered with all relevant tax authorities, where applicable.
The Service Provider understands and acknowledges that OK Who’s Next? acts as commercial booking agent and does not provide any services or products offered by a Service Provider to any Service User. The contract for the Service Providers’ services is between the Service Provider and the Service User and as a result, it is the Service Providers responsibility, if the Service Provider is VAT registered, to charge VAT on the total value of the booking and to provide a VAT receipt to the Service user, if requested. OK Who’s Next? only charges VAT to the Service User on the Commission(if any), in consideration for the provision of our Services.
In the event of fraudulent or alleged fraudulent activities by the Service Provider or if we are required by law, court order, governmental instruction, arbitrational decision or by our cancellation policy to make a refund, of all or part of a booking, we reserve the right to claim repayment from the Service Provider of any amount required to be repaid by OK Who’s Next? to the Service User and for any Bank Charges relating thereto.

anything analogous to any of the foregoing under the law of any jurisdiction occurs in relation to that other party; or
the other party ceases, or threatens to cease, to carry on business.

Each party acknowledges that, whether by virtue of and in the course of this Agreement or otherwise, it may receive or otherwise become aware of information relating to the other party, their marketing plans, their clients, customers, businesses, business plans, finances, technology or affairs, which is proprietary and confidential to the other party (“Confidential Information”).
Each party undertakes to maintain and procure the maintenance of the confidentiality of Confidential Information at all times and to keep and procure the keeping of all Confidential Information secure and protected against theft, damage, loss or unauthorised access, and not at any time, whether during the term of this Agreement or at any time thereafter, without the prior written consent of the owner of the Confidential Information, directly or indirectly, use, disclose, exploit, copy or modify any Confidential Information, or authorise or permit any third party to do the same, other than for the sole purpose of the performance of its rights and obligations hereunder.
The terms of and obligations imposed by this Section 13 shall not apply to any Confidential Information which: at the time of receipt by the recipient is in the public domain, subsequently comes into the public domain through no fault of the recipient, its officers, employees or agents, is lawfully received by the recipient from a third party on an unrestricted basis or is already known to the recipient before receipt hereunder.

The above section shall survive the termination or expiry of this Agreement.
Our maximum aggregate liability under or in connection with this Agreement, or any collateral contract, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed the Charges due and payable to OK Who’s Next? hereunder on the date of the event giving rise to the relevant claim. Further, OK Who’s Next? shall not be liable for any loss of income or profits, loss of contracts, goodwill, or other intangible losses or for any indirect or consequential loss or damage of any kind howsoever arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise (even if we have been advised by the Service Provider of the possibility of such loss or damage).
Nothing in this Agreement shall exclude or in any way limit our liability for fraud or for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or for its wilful default or any other liability to the extent the same may not be excluded or limited as a matter of law.
This section in its entirety shall survive the termination or expiry of this Agreement.
All rights to the Website, App, Service Provider sites and the content on it (save for Service Provider Content) (and all other Intellectual Property Rights belonging to or licensed to OK Who’s Next?) remain vested in OK Who’s Next? at all times. Nothing in this Agreement shall give the Service Provider any rights in respect of any such Intellectual Property Rights or of the goodwill associated therewith. In order to streamline the Website and the content on it (including the Service Provider content), we may, at our absolute discretion and from time to time, amend the format, content and style of venue page descriptions, photos and menus or any other material in the pages.
In the event of a change of control or senior management of the Service Provider, the Service Provider must bring the existence and terms of this Agreement to the new owner or manager’s attention and inform us of the relevant new personnel’s contact details.
Any notice, invoice or other communication which either party is required to serve on the other party shall be sufficiently served if sent to the other party at the address specified in this Agreement (or such other address as is notified to the other party in writing or by email). Notices sent by registered post or recorded delivery shall be deemed to be served three Business Days following the day of posting. In all other cases, notices are deemed to be served on the day when they are actually received.
We have the right to revise and amend these terms and conditions from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our system's capabilities, so please review our terms regularly.
The relationship of the parties is that of independent contractors dealing at arm’s length. Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement shall constitute the parties as partners, joint venturers or co-owners.
Neither party may assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or otherwise deal with any part or all of this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).
Subject only to any stated section in this agreement a person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right to enforce any term of this Agreement.
The failure of either party to enforce or to exercise at any time or for any period of time any term of or any right pursuant to this Agreement does not constitute, and shall not be construed as, a waiver of such term or right and shall in no way affect that party’s right later to enforce or to exercise it.
If any term of this Agreement is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under any applicable law, such term shall, insofar as it is severable from the remaining terms, be deemed omitted from this Agreement and shall in no way affect the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining terms.
This Agreement contains all the terms agreed between the parties regarding its subject matter and supersedes any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between the parties, whether oral or in writing.
This Agreement shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Ireland. The parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish courts to settle any dispute or non-contractual obligation arising out of or in connection with this Agreement.
