We may modify these Terms at any time in our sole discretion. We indicate at the top of the page when these Terms were last modified or updated. Your continued access or use of the Site and/or your account following such changes constitutes and signifies your full acceptance of such changes.
If we make material changes to the Terms, we will notify you through a notice on the Site homepage and/or an email. You are responsible for periodically visiting the Site and the Terms to check for any changes. If you choose to opt-out of our revised Terms, you must stop accessing and using the Site immediately.
We may also modify the Site at any time in our sole discretion by removing from, adding to or modifying the Site. We shall have no liability to you for any such modifications. Your continued access or use of the Site and/or your account following such changes constitutes and signifies your full acceptance of such changes.
Reservations, Purchase and Payment
The Site is a platform on which you may (i) make a reservation, (ii) place an order for pick-up or delivery, (iii) join a waitlist, (iv) place or pay for an order in-person, (v) or create any other booking available to you through Tock (each, a “Tock Reservation”) at a restaurant, bar, winery or other venue (a “Tock Customer”). Once you have completed a Tock Reservation, we will send you an email confirmation including a unique confirmation number. If required by a Tock Customer, you must present your confirmation number and the credit card you used to make the Tock Reservation, if any, before you are served or you receive delivery. If your Tock Reservation involves alcohol, you must also present a valid ID, which shows that you are above the minimum legal drinking age of the applicable jurisdiction, before you are served alcohol or you receive delivery of alcohol.
Pricing for Tock Reservations is variable and depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to the cost and length of a menu, the time and day of the week of your Tock Reservation and the type of beverage pairings you select. Tock Customers may change the pricing for and availability of any Tock Reservation at any time with or without notice, including adding additional Tock Reservations. Tock accepts several methods of payment to accommodate your needs. Tock reserves the right to (i) honor, or impose conditions on the honoring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code or other similar promotions; (ii) bar any Tock User from making any or all Tock Reservations; and (iii) refuse to provide any Tock User with any experience or item.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, JUST LIKE A SPORTING EVENT, CONCERT OR THEATER TICKET, TOCK RESERVATIONS FOR MANY TOCK CUSTOMERS ARE FINAL, NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE. BEFORE YOU COMPLETE A TOCK RESERVATION, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWING THE TOCK CUSTOMER’S CANCELLATION POLICY ON THE CHECKOUT PAGE. ALL PURCHASES ARE SUBJECT TO TOCK’S SERVICE FEES AND CHARGES, WHICH ARE ALSO NON-REFUNDABLE. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING FUNDS TO TOCK FOR ALL APPLICABLE TAXES IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PURCHASE OF A TOCK RESERVATION.
Your Tock Reservation is transferable. However, you should be aware that selling tickets for greater than face value may be illegal in your jurisdiction. If you purchase a Tock Reservation on the secondary market, you do so at your own risk. Tock is not responsible for forgeries or misrepresentations.
Unlawful resale (or attempted unlawful resale), counterfeiting or copying of a Tock Reservation is grounds for the seizure and cancellation of such Tock Reservation and any other Tock Reservation that has been made by you, without compensation to you. In addition, Tock reserves the right to restrict or deny Tock Reservation purchasing privileges to anyone that Tock determines to be, or has been, in violation of these Terms. Because Tock does not guarantee the authenticity of Tock Reservations purchased from any third- party reseller (including but not limited to brokers or other Tock Users), Tock recommends that you purchase Tock Reservations directly through Tock. Tock Reservations may not be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes without the prior written consent of a duly authorized representative of Tock or the applicable Tock Customer.
If you wish to purchase a Tock Reservation, you will be asked by Tock or a third party to supply certain information, including without limitation your name, contact information and credit card information (“Personal Information”). You agree that all Personal Information that you provide to Tock or such third party will be accurate, current and complete. You agree to pay all charges incurred by you or any users of your account and credit card (or other payment mechanism) at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred, including any applicable service charges. You will also be responsible for paying any applicable taxes relating to the Tock Reservation. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any credit card or other payment mechanism used in any Tock Reservation. By submitting such Personal Information, you grant Tock the right to provide such Personal Information to a third party for the purposes of facilitating the completion of a Tock Reservation. Verification of Personal Information may be required prior to the completion of any Tock Reservation. Payments you make to Tock Customer may be submitted to Tock, as Tock Customer’s payment collection agent, solely for the limited purpose of accepting and processing payments from you. The delivery of your payment to Tock, which is acting as Tock Customer’s agent, shall satisfy your obligations to the Tock Customer. Once such a payment is received by Tock on Tock Customer’s behalf, Tock Customer has authorized Tock to electronically credit the funds into the bank account designated by Tock Customer. In the event that Tock does not remit any such amounts, Tock Customer will have recourse only against Tock and not against you directly.
Descriptions or images of, or references to, experiences and items on the Site do not imply Tock’s endorsement of such experiences and items. Tock does not warrant that descriptions or images of, or references to, experiences and items are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. Tock reserves the right, without prior notice, to change such descriptions, images or references.
Tock Customer FAQs
BEFORE YOU COMPLETE A TOCK RESERVATION, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWING ALL OF THE TOCK CUSTOMER’S “FAQS” ON THE SITE. A TOCK CUSTOMER’S “FAQS” MAY CONTAIN ADDITIONAL RULES AND RESTRICTIONS RELATED TO YOUR TOCK RESERVATION, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO (I) REFUND AND EXCHANGE POLICIES; (II) LIMITATIONS ON SEATING CAPACITY; (III) LIMITATIONS ON THE ORDER QUANTITY OF ANY EXPERIENCE OR ITEM; AND (IV) LIMITATIONS ON THE ABILITY TO ACCOMMODATE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS. BY COMPLETING A TOCK RESERVATION, YOU ACCEPT, AGREE TO AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE TOCK CUSTOMER’S “FAQS.”
Privacy and Personal Information
In order to use or access some features of the Site (including without limitation the making of a Tock Reservation), you will be required to create an account with us. In creating your account, you certify that all information you provide is complete and accurate. You agree to update such information when required or requested, and you further agree not to use another person’s account without permission. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your account, and you agree to accept sole responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You agree to notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account by emailing our Privacy Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. We shall not be liable for any losses, damages, liabilities or expenses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, and you agree to indemnify us for any such unauthorized use.
By accepting these Terms and completing the account registration process, you represent that you are 18 years of age or older. To make a Tock Reservation that includes alcohol, be served alcohol or receive delivery of alcohol, or use any Site functionality related to alcohol, you must be the minimum legal drinking age in the applicable jurisdiction. If you are establishing an account on behalf of a company or other entity, the term “you” includes both you as an individual as well as such company or other entity. In addition, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind such company or entity, and that such company or entity has authorized you to accept these Terms on its behalf.

You assume all risks associated with coming into contact with other Tock Users through the Site.

For the avoidance of doubt, you are entirely responsible for the material included in, and any harm resulting from, your Contributions. We have the right, but not the obligation, to remove any Contributions that we deem to be objectionable for any reason, but we do not regularly review Contributions. We have the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Site. Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting a Contribution.

Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL TOCK, OR OUR AFFILIATES, OR OUR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, AGENTS AND REPRESENTATIVES, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR (I) TOTAL, CUMULATIVE DAMAGES, LOSSES OR OTHER AMOUNTS OF ANY KIND IN EXCESS OF THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO TOCK IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE IN THE THREE (3) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE APPLICABLE CLAIM; OR (II) ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OR ACCESS OF THE SITE OR CONTENT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR INFORMATION), WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE.

Marketplace Facilitator and Collection of Sales and Use Tax
Tock is a “marketplace facilitator” that provides a platform for Tock Customer and Tock Users to negotiate and complete transactions. A marketplace facilitator is commonly defined under various state laws as a business that contracts with third party sellers to promote the sale of physical property, digital goods, and/or services owned and supplied by a third party through an online website. As a marketplace facilitator, Tock is responsible for calculating, collecting, and remitting sales and use tax, and, when appropriate, refunding all or a portion of the sales and use tax, all where and when required, on behalf of Tock Customer. Tock will remit sales and use taxes collected from the Tock Users directly to the tax authority, according to applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
You are responsible for providing sufficient funds to Tock to allow it to fulfill its obligation to collect and remit state and local sales and use tax where applicable.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Tock with respect to your use of the Site or any Content, experiences or items provided through the Site, and supersedes any other agreement between you and Tock with respect to the subject matter hereof. No waiver of any provision or condition of these Terms by Tock shall be binding upon Tock unless confirmed in writing signed by a duly authorized officer of Tock. No failure by Tock to exercise and no delay by Tock in exercising any right, remedy, privilege or power under or pursuant to these Terms will operate as a waiver thereof; nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, privilege or power provided for under or pursuant to these Terms by Tock preclude or limit Tock from any other or further exercise thereof or from pursuing any other right, remedy, privilege or power available pursuant to these Terms, or at law or in equity. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect.
By using any of the Tock Applications, you also agree to be bound by the Gift Card Terms and Conditions, linked here.
