Meryts Management LLC – terms and conditions
As a Concierge Service Provider, we offer our clients in the upper income range various services to make their everyday life easier or to fulfil special wishes.
We survey preferences, wishes and interests and provides programmes for this purpose.
Our mission is to empower people to experience the world.
These terms and conditions, as may be amended from time to time, apply to all our services directly or indirectly (through distributors) made available online, through any mobile device, by email or by telephone. By accessing, browsing and using our (mobile) website or any of our applications through whatever platform (hereafter collectively referred to as the “Platform”), you acknowledge and agree to have read, understood and agreed to the terms and conditions set out below (including the privacy statement).
For all the services of Meryts the following terms and conditions shall apply exclusively. These terms and conditions are binding for all present and future business transactions with Meryts, even if no express reference is made to them. Regulations deviating from or supplementing these terms and conditions shall only become part of the contract if this has been expressly confirmed in writing by Meryts.
“Meryts”, “us”, “we” or “our” means the Meryts Management LLC, a company incorporated under the United States of American law, registered at the commercial court New York NY, and having its registered address at 70 Park Drive North, 10580 Rye, NY USA
“Platform” means the (mobile) website and which service is made available owned, controlled, managed, maintained and/or hosted Meryts.
Through the contract concluded with us in each case within the scope of the Concierge Services, the customers could receive various services on our part.
For this purpose, the respective client grants us a general power of attorney with which we may represent the client and act on the client’s behalf in order to be able to provide our Concierge Services.
Through the Platform, we provide an online platform through which our clients can use our services.
Basically, there are 3 different types of contractual services, so called “memberships”, we offer (which the client can make use of):
We reserve the right to change the services offered within the scope of the respective option at any time.
The conclusion of a membership does not constitute a distance contract under the FAGG.
A distance contract does not exist because the contract with Meryts is not concluded within the framework of a distribution or service system organised for distance sales.
The conclusion of memberships does not usually take place at a distance, as usually at the time of the conclusion of the contract one or more means of distance communication are not exclusively used, but a conclusion of the contract takes place personally with Meryts at the offices of Meryts.
Therefore, consumers do not have a right of withdrawal of 14 days according to the FAGG.
The cancellation of lite membership is not possible.
The other memberships (option 2 and option 3) are always concluded for one year. The customer waives the right to terminate the contract (option 2 and option 3) for 1 year.
The membership is always renewed for a further year, unless it is cancelled by the customer by written notice to Meryts at least 1 month before the expiry of the 1-year membership (option 2 and option 3).
By using or utilising the “Booking/Trip service” (e.g. by making a Trip Reservation/Organisation through the “Booking/Trip service”), you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Trip Provider in which you make a reservation or purchase a product or service (as applicable). From the point at which you make your Trip Reservation, we only act solely for you with your general power of attorney with the Trip Provider.
Meryts does not (re)sell, rent out, offer any (travel) product or service.
When rendering the “Booking/Trip service”, the information that we disclose is based on the information provided to us by Trip Providers.
Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing the “Booking/Trip service”, we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our Platform or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each Trip Provider remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including the rates/fees/prices, policies & conditions and availability) displayed.
The “Booking/Trip service” is made available for personal and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to re-sell, deep-link, use, copy, monitor (e.g. spider, scrape), display, download or reproduce any content or information, software, reservations, tickets, products or services available on our Platform for any commercial or competitive activity or purpose.
Basically, there are 3 different types of contractual services, so called “memberships”, we offer. The following prices apply for them:
All prices for our services are displayed excluding sales tax and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes) and fees.
Payment must be made in advance, with option 2 or option 3 being monthly or annually by prior arrangement with Meryts.
Insofar as no benefits/services are claimed by the respective client, no refund of contributions already paid will be made.
The prices as offered by the Trip/Booking Providers are highly competitive. All prices for your Trip are displayed excluding sales tax and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes) and fees, unless stated differently on the confirmation email/ticket. Ticket prices are per person or group and subject to validity or expiration as indicated on the ticket, if applicable.
Applicable fees and taxes (including tourist/city tax) may be charged by the Trip Provider in the event of a no-show or cancellation.
All special offers and promotions are marked as such. If they are not labelled as such, you cannot derive any rights in the event of obvious errors or mistakes.
Meryts respects your privacy. Please have a look at our privacy and cookies policy for further information.
Unless indicated otherwise, our service is free of charge for consumers apart from the costs of the “memberships” under point 4.
You will pay the Trip/Booking Provider the relevant amount as indicated in the Trip/booking Reservation (plus – insofar not included in the price – relevant applicable taxes, levies and fees (if applicable)) whereby there is no limit to the costs incurred for this.
The price of membership must be paid in advance by bank transfer to Meryts and is automatically collected in advance by Meryts from the credit/debit card or bank account of the customer.
For certain products and services, Meryts facilitates (through third party payment processors) the payment of the relevant product or service (i.e. the payment facilitation service) on behalf of the client with its general power of attorney (Meryts never acts nor operates as the merchant of record). Payment is safely processed from your credit/debit card or bank account to the bank account of the contractor of the client through a third-party payment processor. Any payment facilitated by us on behalf of the client and transferred to the contractor of the client will in each case constitute a payment of (part of) the price by you of the relevant product or service in final settlement of such (partial) due and payable price and you cannot reclaim such paid money from Meryts.
In the event of credit card fraud or unauthorised use of your credit card by third parties, most banks and credit card companies bear the risk and cover all the charges resulting from such fraud or misuse, which may sometimes be subject to a deductible (usually set at $50 (or the equivalent in your local currency)). In the event that your credit card company or bank charges the deductible from you because of unauthorised transactions resulting from a reservation/booking made on our Platform/trough our concierge services, we will pay you this deductible, up to an aggregate amount of $50 (or the equivalent in your local currency). In order to indemnify you, please make sure that you report this fraud to your credit card provider (in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures) and contact us immediately. Please provide us with evidence of the charged deductible (e.g. policy of the credit card company). This indemnification only applies to credit card reservations made using Meryts secure server and the unauthorised use of your credit card resulted through our default or negligence and through no fault of your own while using the secure server.
By making a Trip/Booking Reservation with a contractor of the client, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of that third party, and to any additional (delivery) terms and conditions of contractor of the client that may apply to your booked service including for services rendered and/or products offered by the Trip Provider.
If you wish to review, adjust or cancel your Reservation, please revert to the confirmation email by Meryts and follow the instructions therein by Meryts or the Trip/Booking provider.
Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation in accordance with the contractor of the client´s cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy or not be entitled to any repayment of any (pre)paid amount. We recommend that you read the cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy of the contractor of the client carefully prior to making your reservation and remember to make further payments on time as may be required for the relevant reservation.
Meryts does not accept any liability or responsibility for the consequences of your delayed arrival or any cancellation or charged no-show fee by the Trip/Booking Provider.
By completing a booking/reservation, you agree to receive an email which we may send you shortly prior to your arrival date/ date of the event, providing you with certain information and offers (including third party offers to the extent that you have actively opted in for this information) relevant to your reservation and destination
Meryts disclaims any liability or responsibility for any communication by or with Trip Provider. You cannot derive any rights from any request to, or communication with the Trip Provider or (any form of) acknowledgement of receipt of any communication or request.
Meryts cannot guarantee that any request or communication will be (duly and timely) received/read by, complied with, executed or accepted by the Trip Provider.
In order to duly complete and secure your booking/reservation, you need to use your correct email address. We are not responsible or liable for (and have no obligation to verify) any wrong or misspelled email address or inaccurate or wrong (mobile) phone number or credit card number.
