1.1 The website www.thekitchendoor.com (the “Platform”) is an online platform that
connects the owners of commercial kitchen space (“Kitchen Hosts”) with businesses
(“Kitchen Clients”) seeking to hire a commercial kitchen space (“Kitchen”) on a
temporary, short-term basis or for extended terms.
1.2 The Platform is owned and operated by The Food Corridor, Inc. (“The Food Corridor”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), a Colorado Corporation. If you have a query or would like to speak to us about these terms, please contact us by email at email@example.com
1.3 These terms apply to all services provided or arranged by us to Kitchen Hosts and/or to Kitchen Clients (“Services”). These terms do not apply to hiring the Kitchen itself. Hiring a kitchen from a Kitchen Host is dealt with under an agreement provided by the Kitchen Host and is made between the Kitchen Host and the Kitchen Client. The Food Corridor is not a party to that agreement, and is not involved in the drafting or negotiation of the terms of that agreement. We do not own, control or manage any kitchens listed on the Platform.
1.4 In these terms “you” refers to Kitchen Hosts and/or Kitchen Clients (as appropriate).
1.5 Please read these terms carefully to ensure you understand them. By creating an account on the Platform, you are agreeing to these terms. The terms may be varied at any time by posting amended terms on the Platform. The terms which will apply to a booking will be those terms in effect at the time your booking is confirmed.
1.6 These terms relate to your use of the Platform once you have created an account but do not relate to your use of the website otherwise.

2.13 You can browse Listings and search for Kitchens without creating an account. To
enquire about a Listing, you must submit an enquiry or register with us and may be
required to create an account on the Platform. To understand what information we
collect from you, and how we use that information, please read our Privacy Notice.
2.14 If you submit an enquiry about a Listing, a Kitchen Host will gain access to your information provided in your enquiry (including your email address, and telephone number) and will contact you if they are interested in considering your booking. A Kitchen Host may or may not respond to your request.

(“Enquiry”) or alternatively contact us directly by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
3.2 If a Kitchen Client wishes to view a Kitchen before making a booking, this can be requested when submitting an Enquiry. If a viewing is not possible at the times requested by the Kitchen Client in the Enquiry, a Kitchen Host and Kitchen Client may communicate directly via the messenger tool (currently unavailable), email, or phone to arrange a viewing.
3.3 We may monitor all communications made between a Kitchen Host and a Kitchen Client via the messenger tool on the Platform to ensure that all parties are acting in accordance with these Terms and with all applicable laws and regulations. We will monitor communications on a frequent and ad-hoc basis.
3.4 We strongly recommend that a viewing is arranged before a booking is a made (unless it is a repeat booking) to ensure the Kitchen meets the requirements of the Kitchen Client. You are not obliged to arrange a viewing and an Enquiry can be submitted without requesting a viewing. It is the responsibility of the Kitchen Client to assess whether a Kitchen will be fit for the Kitchen Client’s intended purpose.
3.5 It is the responsibility of the Kitchen Host to hold the viewing and of the Kitchen Client to attend the viewing. We will not attend the viewing and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for any loss incurred by a party if the other party fails to attend a viewing.
3.6 If a viewing is cancelled and the parties wish to re-arrange a viewing, this must be arranged via the Platform either by the Kitchen Client submitting a new Enquiry or liaising directly with the Kitchen Host via the messenger tool.
3.15 We do not provide a “form” agreement or other contractual terms for the
agreement between the Kitchen Host and Kitchen Client. We advise each of the parties
to consult legal counsel before entering into any agreement.
3.16 The Food Corridor is not liable to the Kitchen Client or the Kitchen Host for any cancelled bookings, any fees, costs, expenses, or losses incurred by either a Kitchen Client or a Kitchen Host as a result of a cancelled booking, the failure of a Kitchen to meet the requirements of the Kitchen Client or any action or damage caused by the Kitchen Client or Kitchen Host.
