These Terms of Service (“Terms”) are a legally binding agreement between You and Pinktada that govern Your use of Our websites, mobile apps, and other offerings from Pinktada (Our “Services”). By accessing Our Services, You agree to be bound by these Terms of Service.

Pinktada is a new kind of hospitality marketplace.
Pinktada provides an online venue that enables its registered users (“Members”) to buy, sell and swap non-refundable room reservations and related goods and services offered by hotels. Pinktada converts non-refundable room reservations sold by hotels into tradable “room night tokens” (or “RNTs” for short). A RNT represents a contract between the holder of the RNT and the hotel, which obligates the hotel to provide a particular room (or room class) for a particular night to the owner of that specific RNT. If plans change, the RNT may be sold on the Pinktada Platform to another Member at the then available market price for that particular RNT.

Pinktada is a restricted access online venue (“Marketplace”) that enables Members to buy, sell and swap non-refundable room reservations (RNTs) and related goods and services offered by hotels.
While Pinktada may provide pricing and other guidance on the Platform, such guidance is solely for information purposes, without any warranty as to accuracy.
The Pinktada Platform is a freely traded marketplace for RNTs and related goods and services offered by hotels. Pinktada does not determine prices. Prices are set by willing sellers and willing buyers, participating on the Platform. Pinktada makes no guarantees that a seller will be able to complete a sale to a buyer at a price acceptable to the seller.
While Pinktada may help facilitate the resolution of disputes between buyers and sellers, Pinktada does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of the RNTs; the truth or accuracy of the sellers’ content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell RNTs or buyers to pay for them; or that a buyer or seller will complete a transaction.
5. SELLING RNTs
When offering a RNT for sale, You must comply with these Terms of Service and any applicable laws.
Pinktada will work with hotel operators to create authentic RNTs representing non-refundable reservations for specific hotel room night combinations. Pinktada will take steps to ensure that such RNTs are verifiable, unique and not counterfeit.
Sellers of RNTs on the Pinktada Platform must set a price at which they are willing to sell RNTs. Pinktada does not determine this price. Sellers may raise or lower their selling price or remove their offering from the Platform.
Unless otherwise stated, RNTs can no longer be sold, purchased, traded or assigned to another party within 48 hours of check-in. Check-in is generally defined by hotels as 3:00 PM local time at the hotel on the night of stay. This means that all trading must stop at 3:00 PM, 2 days prior to the night of stay.
Pinktada does not guarantee that Your RNT will sell or that You will receive an acceptable price.
By listing a RNT for sale, You are making a binding offer to sell that RNT to a buyer who purchases the RNT at the selling price You have offered.
When a buyer accepts Your offer to sell by purchasing Your RNT on Our Marketplace, You are contractually bound to deliver that exact RNT to the buyer.
You are obligated to monitor your inventory of RNTs and ensure all of Your offerings of RNTs are accurate.
Under no circumstances may sellers cancel orders at one price and then repost the same RNTs for sale at a higher price.
You may not misrepresent or mischaracterize the RNTs that You offer for sale.
You may not advertise, market or offer your RNTs for sale on platforms other than Pinktada. You agree not to market Your RNTs on websites like Craigslist, OfferUp, eBay, social media platforms or any other site besides Pinktada.
Failure to fulfill Your orders is a violation of these Terms of Service and may result in Your account being suspended and the potential loss of any assets in Your Wallet.
Pinktada is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except to help to facilitate the settlement of transactions between Members on the Platform by receiving cash from the buyer and delivering cash to the seller less any applicable fees and taxes.
6. PURCHASING RNTs
When purchasing RNTs, You must comply with these Terms of Service and any applicable laws.
When you book a room, you are purchasing a RNT for a particular room (or room type) for a particular night in a particular hotel. You are agreeing to pay all charges for Your booking including the applicable fees, taxes, and any other items identified during checkout (collectively, “Total Price”).
You are responsible to understand what You are purchasing and You are responsible for determining the price that You are willing to pay.
When You purchase a RNT, You will receive a booking confirmation and a contract will be formed directly between You and the hotel (commonly referred to as a “Reservation”). Your Reservation is non-cancelable and non-refundable. You may however offer Your RNT for sale to another Member on the Pinktada Platform if your plans change.
7. SWAPPING RNTs
When You simultaneously sell RNTs that You own; and purchase other RNTs, You are executing a RNT Swap. Members may wish to Swap RNTs for many different reasons including rescheduling a vacation or changing hotel properties.
When You Swap from lower value RNTs to higher value RNTs, We will charge Your credit card for the increase in price including any fees and taxes.
When You Swap from higher value RNTs to lower value RNTs We will deposit PinkCash in Your Wallet equal to the difference, less any fees and taxes.
8. USING RNTs
When You utilize a RNT to stay at a hotel, You are responsible and liable for Your own acts and omissions and You are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone You invite to join or provide access to the hotel.
For example, this means: (i) You are responsible for leaving the hotel (and related personal property) in the condition it was in when You arrived, and (ii) You must act with integrity, treat others with respect, and comply with applicable laws at all times.
If You are traveling with a minor, you must be legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor and you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor.
When You check-in to the hotel, You will be asked to show valid proof of identification (such as a valid driver’s license or passport) and You will be asked to provide a valid credit card to cover charges during Your stay.
Additionally, You will be responsible to pay certain fees and taxes on-site at the hotel, including potentially such fees as, resort fees, amenity fees, utility fees, cleaning fees and other such fees that may be charged by the hotel for Your stay plus any related taxes.
9. HOTEL OBLIGATION
The hotel offering the RNT is contractually obligated to make that specific room (or room type) available on the designated night according to that particular RNT. If the hotel is unable to make that specific room available (or room type) on that specific night, then the hotel must make a room of equal or better quality available to satisfy its obligation.
Only in the case of a force majeure event, is the hotel relieved from its obligation to provide the room specified in the RNT.
Pinktada may charge fees (and applicable taxes) to Members who utilize the Services on the Pinktada Platform. Pinktada generally charges fees to list and transact on the Pinktada Platform. Fees may vary from time to time and may change without notice. Pinktada fees are non-refundable. Review Your transaction details carefully to ensure that You are aware of the fees You that are paying.
When You purchase or sell a RNT, You are responsible for all applicable taxes, including, for example, sales and use taxes, accommodations taxes and potentially income taxes.
In certain jurisdictions, Tax regulations may require that we collect and/or report Tax information about You, or withhold Taxes from payouts to You, or both.
You may be required to supply Pinktada with Your tax ID number to allow Us to comply with applicable tax regulations. If You fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to support any such obligation to withhold Taxes from payouts to You, we may withhold payouts up to the amount as required by law, until sufficient documentation is provided.
You agree that Pinktada may issue on Your behalf invoices or similar documentation for Use tax, Accommodation tax, VAT, GST, consumption or any other Taxes to facilitate accurate tax reporting.
Failure to comply with Tax requirements may result in the suspension of Your account and the freezing of any assets in Your Wallet.
You may opt for Pinktada to create a commemorative NFT, digitally signed by the hotel, to memorialize Your stay. Such commemorative NFTs may include Your own content including images, audio or video (“Content”) from Your stay, however, any such Content (i) must not infringe on the intellectual property rights of others, (ii) must not include discriminatory, offensive, defamatory or hateful language, (iii) must not include references or inferences to drugs, weapons, pornography, prostitution, racism, death, violent, hateful or dangerous acts, (iv) must not include criminal activity.
13. ACCEPTANCE OF RISKS
You agree that You assume the following risks: (a) there may be no willing buyers should you decide to sell your RNTs, (b) Your RNTs may expire unused and worthless, (c) Pinktada may not be able to attract other Members to the Pinktada Platform to create liquidity, (d) there may be a shortage of available hotel properties to Swap Your RNTs, (e) the hotel underlying Your RNTs may fail or be damaged by a force majeure event, (f) clerical errors may result in the hotel giving Your room away represented by Your RNT, (g) prices and valuations for digital assets can be volatile and unpredictable, (h) intangible digital assets may be lost due to technology failure, (i) unauthorized access to Your digital wallet may lead to the loss of Your RNTs, PinkCash or NFTs, (j) loss of Your RNTs or PinkCash due to a loss or compromise of your login credentials, (k) changes in the regulatory environment or the taxation of digital assets may harm the value of Your RNTs, PinkCash or NFTs, (l) viruses, denial of service, hacking, fraud, counterfeiting, ransomware and mining attacks and other cybercrimes may destroy Your digital assets, (m) a third-party purchaser may defraud You, (n) Pinktada may fail or fall into receivership.
You acknowledge that the foregoing may not be a complete list of all possible risks that You must assume to utilize the Services.
Upon conclusion of a stay at a property, You will have an opportunity to share a review of Your stay with the Pinktada community. Your review must be accurate and may not contain any discriminatory, offensive, defamatory, or other language that violates Our Content Policy.
Note that reviews are not verified by Pinktada for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.
15. CONTENT POLICY
