ALCOHOL AND DRUGS POLICY
Alcohol is permitted on site in small amounts, but The Company reserves the right to eject anyone behaving in a way that negatively impacts Customers, other Users or Staff.
Any form of recreational drugs (any class) are not permitted on site, and staff being made aware of any illegal substance on site will result in immediate ejection and further consequences.
A ‘challenge 25’ policy is enforced for alcohol and The Company reserves the right to enforce the following:
- Anyone who brings alcohol to a Booking and who looks younger than 25 will be asked to prove their age via a photocard driving license or passport.
- Everyone who looks younger than 25 in a given room must prove their age if alcohol is to be left in the Studio with a group of Users.
- If anyone in the group is not able to do this, the full group will be asked to leave their alcohol with staff at reception, which can be collected by either a responsible adult (at some point within 2 days of confiscation – if it is not collected in this time the alcohol will be disposed of by staff), a member of the group who passed the Challenge 25 criteria, or a member of the group who is 18 or over and has a photocard ID or passport to prove this. If none of the members of the group meet this criteria, the offending substance will be kept by Sound Inc LTD staff members and passed to the police.
- If any User or group of Users begins to disturb the peace (whether under the influence of alcohol or not), they will receive a warning from staff, if the offending behaviour continues they will receive a second warning which will outline that if the offending behaviour continues a 3rd time, their studio electricity will be cut off and they will be asked to leave the premises immediately with no refund. The offending party will then have their online account reviewed, Studio CCTV will be studied and Sound Inc LTD will reserve the right to notify the offending User / Party whether they are welcome to continue using The Company’s services, or whether they (and everyone they were with) have been barred from using The Company’s services. The Company reserves the right to overturn whichever decision is made.
- If recreational drugs / the use of them are detected by staff, the offending User and their entire party will be asked to leave the premises immediately and will not be entitled to a refund of any amount. Sound Inc LTD reserves the right to review the offending party’s online account and notify the offending User / Party whether they are welcome to continue using The Company’s services, or whether they (and everyone they were with) have been barred from using The Company’s services. The Company reserves the right to overturn whichever decision is made.
Sound Inc operates a zero tolerance policy for recreational drug use, all classified substances are banned from our studios.
If staff are made aware of drug use on site, or customers are clearly under the influence of illicit substances, their booking will be terminated immediately, their studios will be shut down and they will be asked to leave. Payment will be either taken after ejection, or later that day through our booking system.
If any customer is in need of medical attention at any point, for any reason, staff will assist in co-ordinating intervention by emergency services.
On the first offence, an offending customer will be asked to leave, forfeiting the remainder of their booking and will be warned explicitly of our drugs policy and the further consequences.
On the second offence, an offending customer will be ejected, will forfeit the remainder of their booking and will be charged a cleaning fee of £50.
On the third offence, an offending customer will be ejected, will forfeit the remainder of their booking, will be charged a cleaning fee of £100 and will be banned from the premises permanently.
Payment is made on site, either by cash or card payment on the day of any given booking. Upon booking a studio through our app, the booking holder is giving The Company the power to charge their account for this agreed amount in the event of either a breach of our cancellation policy (including a no-show for a booking) or in the event of an error / problem taking payment. By choosing to make a Booking using our online booking system ( bit.ly/booktheinc ), the account holder is entering into a contract with Sound Inc LTD for the times booked. Proof of contractual obligation to Sound Inc LTD will be confirmed via email and sent to both the booking holder and The Company. If you have any questions regarding payment, please contact us directly.
Sound Inc LTD reserves the right to reject/cancel your booking at any time. If we are unable to fulfil an agreed contract, we will do our very best to let you know as soon as possible.
a. You may cancel or change any aspect of your booking up to 48 hours before your Booking begins. If the time reaches within 48 hours of any given Booking, the Booking will “lock in” with our booking system and you will be unable to cancel / change the date / shorten your booking. You will then be liable to pay the full amount of the Booking whether you attend your Booking or not.
b. You may change the time of a Booking within 48 hours of a Booking beginning as long as it is moved to another time on the same day. You will need to contact the studio and have the change approved by Sound Inc staff in this case, as you will be unable to do this yourself. Your Booking should only be considered as moved upon receipt of a new confirmation email from Sound Inc LTD.
c. If you try to cancel after your booking locks in, or if you do not show up for your Booking, Sound Inc LTD will charge the total cost of your booking to the card linked to your booking system account at the time your Booking was scheduled to end.
d. You can always elongate a booking, even last minute.
e. Sound Inc LTD have the right to change any aspect of a booking which is necessary to comply with applicable law or health and safety requirements, or with anything that does not affect the quality of the Booking. In this case, Sound Inc LTD will make a reasonable attempt to make you aware of any changes.
