Everywhere Venues is all about helping people find the venues and spaces they need to do what they love to do and be who they want to be.
Whether it’s playing sport with your children, planning your wedding, hosting an important meeting or running your business - we want you to be your best self and achieve your dreams. At our core, we believe that the perfect space can make all the difference.
We’ve developed our business and the Everywhere Venues platform to be as inclusive, accessible and flexible as possible. From our user interface design to our business practices, we are committed to helping visitors from all walks of life to find and book the perfect space. We are also committed to providing Venue Managers with powerful, valuable and intuitive tools to get the greatest value out of their assets.
We want everyone to feel welcome on the Everywhere Venues platform no matter who they are, where they come from, how they worship, or whom they love… and we want them to find our platform easy, helpful and a pleasure to use.
It is everyone’s responsibility to be fair, polite, courteous and professional when dealing with others on our platform. Where possible, we ask you to be compassionate, understanding, patient and generous to ensure that you and everyone you deal with has a great experience.
We are committed to preventing all forms of unlawful bias, discrimination, and intolerance on our platform. You can help us to achieve this by reading, agreeing and acting in accordance with this policy.
Everywhere Venues recognises that some jurisdictions permit, or require, distinctions among individuals based on national origin, gender, marital status or sexual orientation. We do not require Venue Managers to violate local laws or take actions that may subject them to legal liability or personal risk when there is a conflict between local laws and customs and this policy. Everywhere Venues will attempt to provide information on the requirements of other jurisdictions, however, it is always the responsibility of the Everywhere Venues member to be aware of and comply with local laws.
Race, Color, Ethnicity, National Origin, Religion, Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, or Marital Status
When bookings and booking requested are declined.
Venue Managers should keep in mind that Visitors may be disappointed if their request to book is declined. While a Venue Manager may have, and explain, lawful and legitimate reasons for declining a potential visitor, it may cause the Visitor to feel disappointed or excluded. Venue Managers should strive to welcome visitors of all backgrounds. Venue Managers who demonstrate a pattern of declining visitors from a protected class may have restrictions applied to their account or be suspended from the platform.
Specific Guidance for Venue Managers Outside Australia, the United States and European Union
Outside of Australia, the United States and the European Union, some countries or communities may allow or even require people to make accommodation distinctions based on, for example, marital status, national origin, gender or sexual orientation, in violation of our general nondiscrimination philosophy. In these cases, we do not require Venue Managers to violate local laws, nor to accept visitors that could expose the Venue Managers to a real and demonstrable risk of arrest, or physical harm to their persons or property. Venue Managers who operate venues in such areas should explain any such restriction in their Venue profile, so that prospective visitors are informed of the issue and Everywhere Venues can confirm the need for such an action. In communicating any such restrictions, Venue Managers must use clear, factual and polite language.
What happens when a Venue Manager does not comply with our policies in this area?
If a Venue profile contains language contrary to this policy, the Venue Manager will be asked to remove the language and affirm his or her understanding and intent to comply with this policy and its underlying principles. Everywhere Venues may also, in its discretion, take steps up to and including suspending the Venue Manager from the Everywhere Venues platform.
If the Venue Manager improperly rejects visitors on the basis of protected class, or uses language demonstrating that his or her actions were motivated by factors prohibited by this policy, Everywhere Venues will take steps to enforce this policy, up to and including suspending the Venue Manager from the platform.
