By virtue of the above selection, the Host will automatically receive an e-mail embodying a link to a webpage of the Site, showing details of all potential Guests.
If the Host decides to select and invite a Guest for a meal and/or a tour of his surroundings (“Event/s”), a proper email and a push message on both their pc and app mobile will be automatically delivered.
