Overview 

Only registered General Users may buy and sell on the Platform. Experts must also complete an application and be approved by Company before they can offer and sell their Session.  We may approve or reject an Expert's application in our sole and absolute discretion. Registration and the Expert approval process is free. In registering for an account and applying to become an Expert, you agree to provide us with accurate, complete and updated information and must not create an account for fraudulent or misleading purposes. You are solely responsible for any activity on your account and for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your password. We are not liable for any acts or omissions by you in connection with your account.

Users pay company in advance when scheduling and approving consultation sessions through the Booking process described below. For fees and payments please read the Commercial Terms.  

 

Experts must fulfill their scheduled appointments and may not cancel scheduled appointments without cause. Experts acknowledge that canceling scheduled appointments will affect their reputation and status and can cause the suspension of their expert account.

 

General Users may not offer or accept payments using any method other than placing a Booking through the Platform.

 

Company retains the right to use all published experts’ information and pictures for Company's marketing and promotional purposes. 

 

We care about your privacy. You can read our Privacy Policy through this link.

 

General Users undertake to comply with Company’s Community Standards, which consist of rules and guidelines, applicable to the Company community and marketplace, in addition to these Terms of Service, as may be updated from time to time.

     

EXPERTS

Basics

Experts offer Sessions according to the categories then currently offered on the Platform and approved by the Company to allow Users to purchase their Sessions in the Experts' field of expertise.

 

For each Completed Booking, the Expert will receive a credit to the Expert's account in an amount equal to 80% of the purchase amount.  After a Completed Booking, a User will not be entitled to receive a refund. Experts shall be credited for Completed Bookings within 48 hours after the Session is scheduled to end.

 

Please note that the pilot version of the Platform does not permit Experts to access an account page to see their credits.

 

Company transfers payments to Experts at the end of each week for the completed Booked Sessions of that week. Sessions are considered completed if there is no feedback from the user, about the session not being performed as scheduled and as agreed, 48 hours after the session is scheduled to end.  

 

For more information about receiving payments, fees and taxes see the Commercial Terms.

 

Experts may not promote their Sessions or any other Company content via the Google Ads platform.

 

The Expert's rating is calculated based on the reviews sent by Users. High ratings may allow Experts to obtain an elevated Expert status. Very low ratings (as determined by Company's then current policies) may lead to the suspension of the Expert’s account.

 

Company may temporarily postpone an Expert’s payment to prevent fraudulent or unlawful activity. This may come as a result of security concerns, improper behavior reported by other General Users, or associating multiple Company accounts to a single withdrawal provider.

 

Experts are responsible for obtaining a general liability insurance policy with coverage amounts that are sufficient to cover all risks associated with the performance of their services. Experts and Users acknowledge and agree that Company acts solely as a technology platform provider and shall not be liable for any direct or indirect damages or losses. Experts and Users hereby agree that they are directly and solely liable to one another for any damages or losses caused to each other, arising out of or related to any breach of these Terms of Service.  For more detail on the limitations on our liability, please see the section entitled "Limitation on Liability" below.

Reviews
