Terms & Conditions
Welcome to Smylee
We are excited to welcome you to Smylee! Our Terms of Service describe how Smylee Pty Ltd ACN 637 400 787 provides you with our Event management services. If you do not agree to abide by these Terms of Service, please do not use the Smylee App.
What we do:
Smylee helps people to honour their commitments to attend a meet up, event or other commitment by including a pledge to charity component when you agree to attend a Smylee Event. If a person cancels, does not show up as committed, or elects to donate anyway, that person agrees to pay the pledged amount to the nominated charity. This pledge works to make the world a better place, and as a reminder that keeping your commitments is the right thing to do.
Smylee lets you create or agree to attend a Smylee Event and requires you to pledge an agreed amount which will go to Charity if you do not attend as committed.
If you do attend the Event as agreed, your Pledged Amount is not paid. If you attend the Smylee Event and you still want to support the Charity, you can instruct Smylee to Donate Anyway and your Pledged Amount will be sent to the nominated charity.
If you do not attend the Event as agreed, your Pledged Amount is paid to Charity from your nominated credit card, along with any transaction fee applicable, stipulated at the time of pledging.
Charity is a registered Charity which is available to receive Pledges from Smylee.
Check-in Event Coordinator and all Guests must Check-in to the Event as agreed to confirm their attendance. A User’s failure to Check-in to an Event as required which includes cancelling or not showing up will lead to that User’s Pledge amount being deducted from the User’s credit card and paid to the nominated Charity. Section 6 of these Terms of Service set out methods Users can use to Check-in.
Donate Anyway is a feature included on the Smylee App which allows users to donate the Pledge Amount to Charity even though user successfully attended their Smylee Event.

Invitation means an invitation for a Smylee Event initiated by an Event Coordinator and delivered to Guest(s) by the Smylee Service. An Invitation will include details for the Smylee Event including time and location, as well as the Pledged Amount and name of the Nominated Charity.

Smylee reserves the right to expand this definition to include any alternate or additional payment gateway service at any time.
Pledged Amount means an amount agreed to be paid to Charity that is set by the Event Coordinator and agreed to be paid by the Event Coordinator and by the Guest(s) invited to attend an Event should they fail to check-in.
