TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By applying to occupy a Stall Space, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Hide & Seek Children’s Market can terminate this agreement; alter any rule or Term, from time to time. The following Terms and Conditions apply:
Once an Application is submitted, the Stallholder agrees to adhere to the Terms and Conditions in this contract.
Market Management will subsequently review the application form and advise the Stallholder in writing within 14 days as to whether their application has been successful or not.
In order to offer an array of mediums of product on sale so that our Market appeals to a diverse range of customers, a limited number of Stalls in each product category are selected for the market by Market Management. Market Management reserves the right to reject Applications and to not enter into correspondence or otherwise further explain the reasons for its decisions.
Applications are only accepted when made for one business, shared Stalls are not permitted.
Stallholders are required to attend their Stall and no refunds/credits will be paid for failing to attend without notice. Stallholders will receive confirmation via e- mail along with a request for payment of Stall Fee, which is payable via our website. A successful applicant that has been notified will have 7 days to make payment of Stall Fees, or otherwise withdraw your Application. Failure to pay within this time frame may lead to cancellation of the approved Application and/or affect your ability to hold a stall at any of our future Markets. If the Market date falls within 7 days of your Application, full payment is required at the time of approval. If you have been provided with a discount code by Market Management then you must use this code for its intended purpose only and not redistribute this code or use it for multiple transactions. Failure to comply with this regulation will forfeit your Stall Space.
If a Stallholder must cancel their confirmed Stall, they must do so by contacting Market Management as soon as possible. Refunds/credits will be issued at the sole discretion of Market Management. For cancellations within 2 weeks of the Market date, the full fee will be applied.
In the case of bad weather where the market is cancelled, 50% of your Stall Fee is non-refundable, while the remainder 50% will be transferred to a rescheduled market date where the balance will remain payable.
It is imperative that you keep your Stall Space clean and tidy at all times. Hide & Seek Children’s Market imposes a high standard of Stall quality.
The Stallholder does not convey any right to any particular location for a Stall. Stallholders must locate their Stalls as directed by Market Management who is authorised to determine and change the layout for Stalls from time to time. However, we do note that Stallholders may request special consideration from Market Management when allocating spaces due to some practical and technical factors. Please contact us for further discussion.
Stallholder's are not permitted to share a Stall Space with another business or sell products other than their own without prior approval from Market Management.
The Stallholder must ensure that all Trading Activity is undertaken within the boundaries of the Stall. Stall Spaces are rented on a one-off basis only. The act of renting a Stall does not create any form of tenancy or secure a right or licence to reserve a Stall at our markets in the future. This means that if you are successful in obtaining a Stall Space in your Application in this instance, you are not guaranteed a Stall Space at any future Markets.
Market Management has taken out a Public Liability Insurance policy of $20,000,000 for the Market event. This Public Liability Insurance also covers Stallholders who have been approved by Market Management. Stallholder’s who are bound by their own Public Liability Insurance must ensure this cover specifically includes market trade and must be able to produce a valid certificate if requested. This does not include Product Liability Insurance. We recommend that you obtain product insurance in order to cover for all risks in relation to product liability.
Market Day Procedure
The details of the Market Day Procedure are outlined in an e-mail along with the details of the Stallholder’s allocation. This will occur on the Thursday prior to Market day, only after payment of the stall fee has been received. Stallholders must abide by the instructions of the Market Management in relation to parking and traffic control during access and egress. In the interests of Occupational Health & Safety, Stallholders must strictly comply with specific times in relation to the set up and pack up of the Market. Setting up and packing up a stall outside of the designated times may be hazardous to other persons and, as such, a failure to observe and comply with the time restrictions for set up and pack up is considered to be a major breach of the Stallholder’s obligations and Market Management reserves the right to refuse the offending Stallholder permission to occupy a Stall at the Market on the day of the infringement and on any future Market day. It is imperative that Stallholders consult only with Hide & Seek Children’s Market Management regarding any access and egress procedures.
Throughout the Market, Stallholder’s must act harmoniously with all patrons and other Stallholders. Those who do not may be asked to leave.
It is the Stallholder’s responsibility to ensure that all of the Equipment brought to the Market by the Stallholder has been erected securely, is operated in a safe manner and has been ballasted for safety prior to the commencement of trade. All Equipment including trestle tables, chairs, umbrellas, signage and displays must be provided by the Stallholder. Public access ways must be kept clear at all times and Stallholders must co-operate with Market Management in ensuring that an appropriate corridor is maintained along the pedestrian pathways. We reserve the right to direct a Stallholder to remove materials or otherwise be refused to trade at the Market. You agree to be solely responsible for any theft or damage to any furniture or other items that occupy your Stall Space.
Hide & Seek Children’s Market will only allow Food Vendors to trade if their food is produced in a council registered food premise and have the relevant Gold Coast City Council mobile food licence. A copy of this permit must be provided on application and must have a valid expiration date on the Market Day. Food Vendors are required to produce a copy of their mobile Food Vendor’s insurance if required.
