If the Host or Guest/s has something more specific in mind then this should mentioned at the point of enquiry (failing that at when Booking or to the Therapist/s at the beginning of the Treatment/s). We cannot guarantee the fulfilment of any requests not stated at the point of enquiry.

My Pamper Party would suggest that any nail polish is removed in advance in order to make the most of the treatment time available.

When opting for a 15 minute treatment the Host and/or Guest/s will need to be realistic about what can be achieved within that time frame.

The Host will allow a minimum of 3-4 hours for a Party – a Party with less than a 3-4 hour window for Treatment/s must be agreed with a My Pamper Party Representative before Booking and will result in additional charges (as a general guide this would be approximately £10.00 per half hour to 3 hours, per Therapist).

All fees for services arranged are to be pre-paid – unless alternative arrangements have been made with a representative of My Pamper Party. The full balance will be due at least 7 days prior to the party. Once a Therapist/s has been confirmed, and the Final Balance requested, then the Host will be bound by this price even if a Guest/sdoesnot have their Treatment/s. Payment can be made in two ways – PayPal (this will incur a 4% transaction fee) or Bank Transfer (free).

My Pamper Party will, prior to the Party, take all reasonable endeavours to introduce a suitable Therapist/s to the Host. My Pamper Party will obtain all relevant work permits where necessary and also satisfy all medical requirements, qualifications and insurance as may be required by law in relation to engagement of a Therapist/s.

The Host acknowledges that the Therapist/s provided are not employees of My Pamper Party, each Therapist/s is self-employed or engaged under a contract for services.

Changes to the Booking

Changes made to the Party Schedule, Treatment/s and/or Address with less than 48 hours notice may result in the termination of the party with no refund. My Pamper Party will try to accommodate changes with less than 48 hours notice, however, the Host may incur a fee of 10% of the balance payment for Party Schedule, Treatment/s and Address changes and this will increase to 20% of the balance payment for address changes more than 5 miles from the original party location.

Changes made to the Party Schedule, Treatment/s or Address with less than 7 days notice will incur an Administration Fee of £10.00.

Changes made to the Party Schedule by My Pamper Party for whatever reason will not incur additional charges.

Cancellation

If the Host cancels the Party with at least 7 days notice, they will be entitled to a refund of monies paid, excluding the Deposit. However, the Party can be transferred to an alternative date for an additional payment of £15.00.

If less than 7 days notice is received, 50% of the total cost of the Party will be refunded, excluding the Deposit. The Party cannot be transferred to an alternative date unless agreed by a My Pamper Party Representative.

The Party

We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

It is hereby acknowledged by the Host that the Therapist/s is entitled to pre-scheduled breaks during the course of the engagement. These may be taken as individual breaks or as an elongated break depending on prior arrangement with the Host. Although My Pamper Party have not allocated breaks, please respect that pampering is hard work and especially in between a more strenuous Treatment/s such as massage and reflexology, the Therapist/s may require a short break.

The Host will ensure that adequate space is provided, as advised by My Pamper Party or the Therapist/s, in order for the Therapist/s to perform their Treatment/s. A couch is often used for Treatment/s and is usually 6 foot long so please ensure there is adequate room for the Therapist/s to walk around the bed.

The Host may be asked to provide standard tables and chairs and water refreshments.

The Host is responsible for protecting their belongings and to cover any carpets, tables, etc appropriately.

The Host will cover the cost of therapist parking/if any – as agreed prior to the party.

The Host will ensure that all Guest/s have signed appropriate consent documentation prior to receiving Treatment/s. Therapists are not responsible for any allergic reactions ifconsent has been given for Treatment/s or allergies were not declared.

My Pamper Party are aware that pamper parties are social events, however, if the Therapist/s feel too much alcohol has been consumed before a Treatment/s they are well within their rights not to offer that Treatment/s to the Guest/s concerned. The Host will take all reasonable endeavours to ensure that Guest/s limit the intake of alcoholic beverages prior to receiving Treatment/s. The legal limit for driving is a suitable guideline. Therapist/s may refuse Treatment/s to any Host or Guest/s deemed to be behaving inappropriately or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, with no refund. It is dangerous to carry out Treatment/s on a person who is intoxicated.

The Host will ensure that pets and small children will be kept away from all products and equipment to prevent accident or injury.

The Host will ensure that Guest/s arrive in time for their pre-scheduled Treatment/s. The Freelance Therapist/s will make every effort to accommodate any changes due to lateness but in such an event My Pamper Party will have no liability for any loss of Treatment/s time.

The Therapist/s has the right to charge for any delays caused by the Host or Guest/s, resulting in a delay of more than 30 minutes from the agreed Party Schedule. The amount of £10.00 for every 30 minute delay should be paid by cash or cheque directly to the Therapist/s providing Treatment/s.

My Pamper Party will do its utmost to ensure the completion of the engagement in its entirety. If any Therapist/s is unable to perform his/her full engagement due to sickness, injury or any other reason My Pamper Party will use all reasonable endeavours to fulfil its obligation by providing an alternative Therapist/s. Should any part of the engagement not be fulfilled in its entirety, My Pamper Party will deduct on a pro-rata basis the cost of the unfulfilled portion of the engagement.

My Pamper Party shall not be liable to the Host or Guest/s for any loss, injury, damage, expense or delay suffered by the Host or the Guest/s.

My Pamper Party will arrange to have these items delivered to the Host in the week of the Party on a mutually agreed date and address. A Refundable Deposit must be paid via PayPal before the items will be dispatched. To avoid confusion we suggest that a preferred date and location is included at the point of Booking.

In order that the items do not have to be removed at the end of the party – and spoil the atmosphere – My Pamper Party will arrange collection of the items in the week after the party. Once the items have been received and checked My Pamper Party we arrange a refund of the Refundable Deposit.

My Pamper Party will not accept liability for the actions of third parties such as the courier or missed delivery which result in the items being unavailable on the date of the party.

In some circumstances we can arrange for a Therapist/s to collect the items at the end of the Party and return to My Pamper Party – however this cannot be guaranteed. Please do mention this when Booking if you would require this service as it may incur an additional charge and the Therapist/s and/or My Pamper Party will not accept liability for damage caused to the said items from the point of leaving the Party to the return to the My Pamper Party office.
