  • you must create an account;
  • choose a date and time slot for the Experience offered by the Localyokl; and
  • pay for the booking in full.
          4.2 Automated process

All booking requests successfully made through our Site are confirmed via an automated email to the account holder’s nominated e-mail address with a request number. This confirmation does not:

  • constitute a tax invoice; or
  • signify acceptance of your request.
  1. Receipts

    • We will forward a valid tax invoice to your nominated email address following your Booking being processed.
    • If you do not receive a tax invoice from us within 3 days, it is your responsibility to let us know.

         6.2 Security

All credit card payment information and details are provided through pages protected by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology which encrypts the communications and information provided when transmitted from you.

        6.3 Payment Verification

Placed Bookings may be subject to a pre-authorisation check to ensure fund availability. Pre-authorisations will appear as a “pending” charge on your account. The total value of your order may be held on your account, being taken only once the order has been dispatched.

  1. Cancellations

    7.1 General cancellations
    • As we incur costs at the time of processing a Booking, we will only accommodate order cancellations without any charge if we are notified of the cancellation before the order has been fully processed.
    • If your cancellation is subject to a charge, we will send through the amount of the charge along with justification of the reasons for the charge prior to finalising your cancellation.
    • We will only process your cancellation once we receive confirmation from you of your intention for it to be cancelled and acceptance of the cancellation charge.
    • If you do not show up to your Experience within a reasonable time of its commencement, you may not get the opportunity to participate and your payment will be forfeited.
          7.2 Cancellations due to weather
  • You acknowledge and agree that your Experience may be dependent on the weather conditions of the day.
  • It is the responsibility of the Localyokl to cancel, delay or postpone the booking where inclement weather conditions will prevent it from proceeding.
  • The Localyokal will be solely responsible for contacting you to inform you of any changes.
  • If weather conditions prevent the Experience from occurring and rescheduling is not possible, we will arrange for you to receive a full refund.
  • If an Experience is interrupted by weather, it will be the Localyokl’s decision as to whether or not to proceed.
  • Where the Experience is interrupted and cannot continue or be rescheduled, we will arrange for a fair percentage of the fee, as reasonably determined by us, to be refunded to you.
  1. Pricing

All prices on our Site are stated in Australian Dollars and include all taxes and charges.

      8.2 Rates

Each Localyokl sets the rate of their Experience.

    • Despite each Localyokl being carefully scrutinised and required to meet strict criteria, before they will be allowed to promote their Experience on the Site, they are engaged by you as a third party independent contractor.
    • Each Localyokl contracts us to provide support services to them. Given this relationship they are not an employee of ours and we will not be responsible for any of their acts or omissions, nor will we be vicarious liable for them in anyway.
  2. Bad experience

    • If you have a bad experience or are not completely satisfied with your Localyokl please leave an appropriate review following your session and let us know as soon as possible by emailing info@localyokl.com.

You must not circumvent the Site by attempting to solicit or entice the Localyokl’s services in any way that is external to the Site.

    • We will not be responsible for any loss suffered by you as a consequence of you using multiple browsers or having multiple tabs open within the same browser and accessing the Site.
  2. Limitation of liability

    • To the extent permitted by law (including, without limitation the Australian Consumer Law), we disclaim any liability to you beyond the face value of your order plus any relevant transaction charges.
    • We will not be liable for any loss of enjoyment or wasted expenditure and accept no responsibility for any damaged personal property.
