3. Terms of Service
3.1 The Service consists of an online platform in the form of Website, Web application, mobile application, and other related tools, support and services that Pet Owners and Pet Service Providers can use to find, communicate with and interact with each other. The Website connects pet owners with pet sitters who wish to provide Pet Services including but not limited to pet sitting and other similar per care services. We may charge Service Fee from both Pet Owners and Pet Service Providers whenever a Pet Owner hires the Pet Services of a Pet Service Provider through our Website.
3.2 The Website is not a service provider for pets. Rather it is only a platform that allows Pet Service Providers to offer their Pet Services directly to Pet Owners. We make no representations or warranties about the quality of boarding, pet sitting, pet walking, house sitting, transportation, or other services provided by Service Providers, or about your interactions and dealings between Pet Owners and Pet Service Providers. We neither employ, recommend or endorse Service Providers or Pet Owners, nor will we be responsible or liable for the performance or conduct of Service Providers or Pet Owners, whether online or offline. We conduct an initial review of Service Provider and Pet Owner profiles and we facilitate background checks, but, except where explicitly specified in these Terms (and then only to the extent specified), do not otherwise screen Service Providers or Pet Owners. Pet Owners should exercise caution and use their independent judgment before engaging a Service Provider, providing Pet Services, or otherwise interacting with users via the Service. Pet Owners and Service Providers are solely responsible for making decisions that are in the best interests of themselves and their pets. For example, each user of the Service is responsible for keeping current his or her own pet’s vaccinations, and we will have no liability for anyone’s failure to vaccinate his or her pet.
3.3 We hereby expressly disclaim, and you (including both Pet Owners and Pet Service Providers) hereby expressly release us from, any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries, loss, harm and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to your interactions or dealings with other users and the acts and/or omissions of Per Service Providers and Pet Owners, whether online or offline. You acknowledge and agree that YOUR USE AND/OR PROVISION OF PET SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE RISK AS THESE SERVICES ARE BEING PROVIDED BY PET SERVICE PROVIDERS ON “AS IS” BASIS.
3.4 Bookings: Pet Owners and Pet Service Providers transact with each other on the Service when they both agree to a “booking” that specifies the fees, time period, cancellation policy, and other terms for provision of Services via the booking mechanism provided on the Website. Once you complete a Booking, you agree to honor the price and other terms of that Booking.
3.5 Pet Owners are Solely Responsible for Evaluating Service Providers. Pet Owners are solely responsible for evaluating the suitability of Service Providers for the Pet Services they offer to provide. Though we offer a limited review of applications to become Service Providers and facilitates Service Provider background checks conducted by a third party, any such screening is limited, and we do not warrant that any such screen is accurate, complete, conclusive or up-to-date. Similarly, we do not endorse reviews of Pet Service Providers by other Pet Owners that may be available via the Service, and we make no commitments that such reviews are accurate or legitimate.
3.6 Legal Compliance: By accessing and using our Services, you certify that you: (1) are 18 years of age or older, and (2) will comply with all laws and ordinances applicable to your activities conducted through the Website.
