TERMS OF USE

LAST UPDATED: April 26, 2018

RIISU Inc. (“RIISU,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is willing to provide you access to and use of its remote restaurant ordering system or mobile application (the “Mobile App”), technology, and related services (the “Services”).

We provide our Services to you subject to the following Terms of Use, which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. By accessing and using the Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be legally bound by the terms and conditions of these Terms of Use and the terms and conditions of our Privacy Policy, which is hereby incorporated by reference. If you do not agree to any of these terms, then please do not use the Services.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

RIISU helps travelers reserve restaurants overseas. We provide translated menu to travelers so that they can dine in local restaurants without an international menu. We provide an App which also has ordering mode in which diners can directly order their foods using the platform.

Our Application provides menus translated to English language. While we strive to keep the translations as precise as possible, we cannot guarantee that the translation 100% corresponds to the original content of the menu. Deviations may occur due to the various reasons, including, but not limited to, changes in the menu we are not aware of.

If the photo of a certain dish is provided in the menu, please mind that we do not represent or guarantee that the ordered meal will look the same.

RIISU makes available restaurant reservation services through the Mobile App to User  or assisting User in securing dining reservations at participating third-party restaurants (each, a “Restaurant”). In response to a User’s online request for a Restaurant reservation through the Mobile App, RIISU contacts the Restaurant’s computerized database of reservations, as applicable. The availability of reservations is determined at the time of User’s query and based on information provided to RIISU by the Restaurant. Once a reservation request is made by User through the RIISU mobile App, RIISU will provide confirmation of the reservation status to User by email or other electronic messages as has been agreed to by User. By using the Reservation Services, User agrees to receive reservation confirmations, updates, modifications and/or cancellations by email or other electronic messages.

Although you are able to place orders through the Services, RIISU is not an actual party to any such transaction. Your order is between you and the restaurant from which you order. Accordingly, we shall have no liability to any party in connection with such transactions including without limitation, for inaccuracies in menu dishes, ingredients, possible allergens, prices, or any other items related to the dining.

We do our best to provide all the allergen information as provided by restaurants, and to identify the most common ones. However, please be aware of the risk that, depending on the respective restaurant suppliers the ingredients may change, or the restaurant may use the substitute for the any of the ingredients at any time, without notice. If you are concerned with food allergies, you must be aware of these risks and properly check with each of the restaurants for the possible risks.

RIISU cannot assume any liability for any reactions to the food consumed in the restaurants booked or found via our App, because we have no means to influence this. 

We may also provide third party advertisements on our Mobile App. Although we do screen the ads we cannot guarantee that these ads will not offend you and we disclaim all liability pertaining to such ads.

CANCELLATION; REFUNDS

RIISU is committed to providing superior quality services to Users and Restaurants. To assist us in maintaining a consistently high level of service for the Restaurants and their patrons, Users must cancel any reservations that they will be unable to honor at least 3 days in advance of the reservation or within the Restaurant specific time period. You may cancel your reservation via the RIISU platform or by calling the Restaurant directly. Some Restaurants may require a debit or credit card number to finalize your reservation.  In order to use the Reservation Services for these Restaurants, you must provide valid debit or credit card information. To confirm that the debit or credit card information you have provided is accurate, we may place a temporary authorization on your debit or credit card at the time you provide your debit or credit card information. After we verify that your debit or credit card information is accurate, usually within a few days, the authorization will be removed. You may be required to cancel your reservation in accordance with the Restaurant’s cancellation policy, which is disclosed at the time the reservation is made. RIISU uses this debit or credit card information as described in our privacy policy and shall have no liability for any charges made to the debit or credit card account for any failure to cancel your reservation in accordance with a Restaurant’s cancellation policy.

Upon arriving at the Restaurant, it is the User’s responsibility to notify the host that the User has a reservation. By using the Reservation Services, User agrees to receive no-show notifications by email after a report that your reservation was not honored, whether or not that was in fact the case. Your Account will be suspended if you are a no-show for three reservations within a 12-month period. User agrees that all final no-show determinations will be made by RIISU in its sole discretion.

Failure to appear at the Restaurant in a timely manner may result in the Restaurant bypassing your place on the waitlist for other guests or removing you from the waitlist entirely.

All refunds are subject to the refund policies of the restaurants from which you order. If you contact us seeking a refund, we cannot – and will not – process any refund until we receive the approval from the applicable restaurant. We will use reasonable efforts to request and obtain refunds when appropriate.

PAYMENT

All payments shall be made through the Mobile App via Stripe.

You must keep your Password strictly confidential. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Password, and you agree to be personally liable for all charges incurred under your Password. Your liability for such charges shall continue after termination of this agreement.
