2. Our role

GroovMonkey web application/portal has 3 main distinctive features:
  • Entertainments directory - The site allows Artists to create their own profiles and be listed in a directory divided into categories, locations etc. Regular users can find a suitable Artist for a private or public event, see the price, requirements, description, photo galleries and videos.
  • Bookings - Each Artist listed on the website can be booked by regular site visitors. A user picks a date, time and location and the Artist can accept or decline the booking request.
  • Events listing - The last section of the site list “events near me”. These are public events that organisers want to advertise. Each event has a map marker, description, date, time, and ticket price (if applicable). Events can be added by regular site visitors or registered users who booked an artist via the booking functionality.
You may book events with Artists/Organisers directly using the booking functionality on our platform. You recognise that when you book a specific activity via the CJM BOOKING LTD website in relation to a specific Listing, We are acting simply as a middleman and you are entering into a transaction with the relevant Artist.

5. Payments and Charges

The Website is free to use. If you opt to transact with an Artist through the CJM BOOKING LTD website in relation to a certain Listing, the applicable fee that you will pay to the relevant Artists via the CJM BOOKING LTD will be specified in the relevant Listing. Given that you are transacting directly with the relevant Artist, you agree that the pricing for the relevant activity will be established by the Artist and stated in the relevant Listing. We do not have the power to change this pricing. The fees are listed inclusive of any applicable local taxes. Prior to the time of purchase, further information (including information on our approved payment methods) is offered.
We allow Customers to make bookings via deposits only. CJM BOOKING LTD takes a commission fee off the deposit paid. This is a cost on the entertainers/ artists for using the platform. You will receive a confirmation email from Us shortly after confirming your order, which will provide details of the booking you are making as well as confirm that We are just serving as an intermediary and payment agent for such booking subject to the terms and conditions of the Artist/Entertainer booked. The appropriate Artist may additionally send you a second confirmation email.
When you use a credit or debit card to complete a purchase, you affirm that the credit or debit card being used is yours. The card issuer conducts validation and authorization checks on all credit and debit cardholders. We shall not accept the transaction if the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment. We are not required to provide you with an explanation for the denial. We are not liable for any fees charged to you by your card issuer or bank as a consequence of our processing of your credit or debit card payment in line with your requested order.
