1. About the Sesher Platform
The Sesher Platform is a Web-based communications venue that enables commercial connections between Customers and Service Providers. “Service Providers” are individuals or business entities that use the Platform to market their services (“Services”) to individual Customers. “Customers” are individuals and/or businesses seeking to obtain specific advertised services from Service Providers and are therefore Customers of Service Providers. Customers and Service Providers together are hereinafter referred to as “Users.”
The Company is not in any way responsible for the actions or inactions of any such Users, nor does it have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any Services, nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Users. The Company does not have control over the quality, timing or legality of the Services delivered by its Service Providers. Company makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the Services advertised by Services Providers through the Platform whether in public, private, or offline interactions.
2. User Qualifications/No Vetting
PROVIDING A VENUE FOR CUSTOMERS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS TO MEET DOES NOT IMPLY AN ENDORSEMENT OF ANY SUCH USER. THE COMPANY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE QUALIFICATIONS OF ANY SERVICE PROVIDER.
NEITHER COMPANY NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE PLATFORM AND YOU HEREBY RELEASE THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS FROM ANY LIABILITY RELATED THERETO. COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM.
3. Billing and Payment
Users of the Platform contract for Services directly with other Users. Company will not be a party to any contracts for any Services.
In order to pay Service Providers for Services scheduled through the Sesher Platform, Users are required to provide their credit card or bank account details to the third party payment processing provider retained by the Company pursuant to a separate agreement (the “Payment Processor”). The Company’s current payment processing provider is Stripe, although the Company reserves the right to require Users to switch its payment processing provider in its discretion. Customers will be responsible for paying the invoice for each Service (the “Invoice”), which will include (i) the pricing terms of the Service agreed with and provided by a Service Provider (“Payment”), (ii) any out of pocket expenses agreed with and submitted by a Service Provider in connection with the Service, (iii) any tip or gratuity, if applicable, and (iv) the Platform fee the Company assesses for the Platform, based on the Service Payment amount, subscription fees or otherwise.
Within 48 hours after Client receives confirmation through the Sesher Platform or via email that a Service has been completed, Client authorizes the Company to provide the Client's payment details to the Payment Processor for processing of Payment for a Service, out of pocket expenses owed to Service Provider, any tip or gratuity, if applicable, and the Platform fees and trust and safety fees owed to the Company for the use of the Sesher Platform. You may be charged a cancellation fee through the Payment Processor if you book a Service, but cancel it before it is completed, as set forth in the specific terms of Service described by the Service Provider on the Sesher Platform. Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion (but not the obligation), to (i) place on hold any Payment for a Service and related out of pocket expenses, or (ii) refund, provide credits or arrange for the Payment Processor to do so. Payment for a Service and fees must be paid through the Platform. No offline payments are permitted for Services scheduled through the Sesher Platform.
Users will be liable for any taxes (including VAT, if applicable) required to be paid on the Services (other than taxes on the Company’s income).
The Platform is only a venue for connecting Users. Because the Company is not involved in the actual contact between Users or in the completion of any Service, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you hereby release Company (and our officers, directors, agents, investors, owners, members, subsidiaries, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
