    Default Terms and Conditions

    Do you read them?

    We are in a rut after my sons birthday.
    We hired Spiderman, with the invoice it says once you pay, you accept terms and conditions. I never got them. And never queries them. Now damage has been caused to property and the company isn’t liable.

    Am I really in the wrong? What would you do?

    Default Terms and Conditions

    I own a small business and am constantly telling people my terms and conditions.
    Yes I always read small business terms and conditions but rarely big business.
    Were the terms on the website? They don’t need to be sent to you.

    Unfortunately I think if the invoice said you were agreeing to their T&Cs and you paid it without asking to see them, you’re consenting to them.
    Having said that, there may be things that are their responsibility regardless of what their terms say. But you would need advice about that. Maybe if the damage was caused through negligence they might still gave to pay.
    I guess you have to decide how much this means to you

    Your words are exactly are what I thought..
    In all the excitement of booking Spiderman for my son- who I do absolutely anything for, I never looked into it!

    I’m more upset about the situation as the party was held at my parents house and it was their property damaged.

    There are no terms on their website. And wasn’t included on their email after I paid the deposit....

    It may be worth getting some sort of legal advice on this. I would have thought that they would be obliged to give you a copy of the terms and conditions with their invoice if your are consenting by paying.

    It's unfair (and most likely illegal) to force you to consent to something you have not seen.

    I also would have thought they would be liable for damage. Surely they have insurance?

    That’s why I’m worried as I didn’t ask for the t&c’s
    I told my dad I won’t be getting Spiderman here again

    Everyone at the party told me not to worry cause of their insurance, but this guy says he can’t use insurance because of their terms..
    I guess we can’t win this one.....
