Services of Local Services Pro
Local Services Pro aims to make booking local services faster and simpler.  Users who wish to purchase and consume certain services from professionals (hereinafter, the “Customer(s)”) can book pre-approved local services from professionals such as taxi drivers, caregivers, electricians, plumbers, pest control, cleaners, food delivery, grocery delivery and more (hereinafter, the “Professional(s)”).

Overall, Local Services Pro provides a platform with the functionalities that include but are not limited to: booking taxis, requesting delivery and posting job offers for services required by Consumers, Professionals offering bids for their services, a directory of local Professionals, a platform where Consumers and Professionals can communicate amongst each other, negotiate the services, time, price, track their progress, and more.

Henceforth, the Site allows for booking of services at a location and time to be mutually agreed (a “Future Booking”), and the App allows for both Future Booking and immediate on-demand bookings, traceable in real time via the user’s mobile devices (an “On Demand Booking”).  Users may also participate in polls, see each others’ location, send contact requests and share messages, documents, links, photographs, videos, audio and other content.

Service Disclaimer
Local Services Pro only provides an online platform where Professionals can make bids for their services to Consumers who have requested the type of service that such Professional can offer or provide.  Henceforth, if the Customer decides to proceed with a bid, the Professional and the Customer shall be able to directly negotiate and contract each other regarding the provision of the particular services, and the Customer will be obliged to pay the Professional directly (not Local Services Pro).

Local Services Pro does not provide the actual professional services, and hereby disclaims any and all representation or warranty about the Customers, their likelihood to select, engage and pay for services, and for the actual performance, skill or availability or the Professionals.

Our payment system is only intended to transfer the funds from Consumers to Professionals, under certain rules and less our commission, thus the payment and obligations between our users will remain their sole and final responsibility.  Lastly, we only provide non-binding mediation services for our users who select that option.

●    Personal and professional information (e.g. name, physical address, telephone number, email address, utility bills, driving license, proof of address, proof of professional registration or license).
●    Information about service required, postal code and geographical location where the service is offered.
●    Billing information, such as credit or debit card number, expiration date & security code and/or information regarding user’s Stripe, Google Wallet or other digital payment accounts.
●    Ratings and reviews of the service providers which customer may engage through the Site and App.
●    Application information such as service provider’s experience, skills, eligibility to work, and availability.
●    Social media accounts linking.
●    Credit and consumer checks and reports.
●    Other information requested by our service and payment processing providers, including the use of third party entities for ID, address and solvency check.

For users who wish to provide their professional services, we may also request proof of experience and skill.  Each registration we be reviewed to ensure that it fits into one of our supported service categories.  Some service categories will be incompatible with our offerings, and may be rejected by us.  We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to open and close service categories when we deem fit.

Professional profiles should include information such as details of the services provided, images and videos, reviews, insurance information, and credentials.  We offer certain functionalities targeted to professional users, such as badges, advertising campaigns, profile enhancement and increased visibility.  These functionalities will be optional, and will be ruled according to their terms, price and conditions, to be indicated by us from time to time.

Customer Accounts
For our users who wish to open an account to request professional services, we will request, but will not be obliged to, certain basic documentation in order to carry out minimum checks.  Information requested will include, but will not be limited to:
(i) personal and professional information (e.g. name, physical address, telephone number, email address, utility bills);
(ii) billing information, such as credit or debit card number, expiration date & security code and/or information regarding user’s Stripe, Google Wallet or other digital payment accounts; and
iii) social media accounts linking.

Booking Process
Consumers will be able to post service and work requests on our Site and App (each, a “Job”), and will be able to indicate the type of service requested, timeframe, location, availability, materials used (if any), proposed fee (hourly work or fixed price), the Job’s location (the “Location”) and other items (collectively, each a “Request”).  Such Requests will be available on our Site and App so Professionals may review them.

If a Professional wishes to bid for the job Request, they will be able to post a custom proposal which will include cost estimate, proposed fee, availability, materials used and a personal message for the Customer.  Once their bid is sent to the Customer, we will also send the Professional's profile along with their bid (each, a “Proposal”).

Posts for Job Requests are free to make by Customers, and posts for Job Proposals are to be purchased as pre-paid credits by our Professionals.

Future Bookings.  Through the Site and the App, Customers can place Requests for Future Bookings, Professionals can then make Proposals and Customers may ultimately book the Job to be provided at a future time and Location to be mutually agreed.  Our users can communicate their needs directly via text chat or voice call.

Local Services Pro will confirm each Job booking appointment and Customers may pay electronically via our systems.  We may also offer the option where Customers may pay Professionals in cash after the services are completed.  The terms and conditions for electronic and cash payments shall be detailed and indicated by Local Services Pro from time to time.

On Demand Bookings.  Through On Demand Bookings, Customers may create Requests for services they need within a short timeframe.  After opening a Request for a Job, the App will match Customers with our pre-approved Professionals, based on the type of services requested for the Job, the Professional’s availability and Location’s proximity between them.  Therefore, after a Customer selects and book a Job, their preferred Professional will travel to the Location.

The App has mechanisms to track Professionals in real time, from traveling to and arriving at the Location until the time of completion, after which Customer may pay them.  These functionalities represent a convenience for our community, since all steps in the booking and service provision are duly registered and stored by Local Services Pro.

Booking Terms.  By providing a Proposal, Professionals are thereby representing and warranting to Local Services Pro and the Customer that they are duly skilled, qualified and available to undertake out the relevant Job, and that the Proposal is a true, accurate and reasonable estimate of the timeframe and cost of the work to be undertaken, based on the initial information received from the Customer.  

By posting a Request, Customers are representing and warranting to Local Services Pro and the Professional that they are available to receive the Professional and that the Location is free and open to the Professional and his equipment.

Misrepresentation of booking terms by our users entails a breach of our Terms, and is grounds for a Job’s cancellation, account suspension and even deletion by Local Services Pro.

In order to foster a fair ecosystem, Local Services Pro will implement systems designed to measure whether a Professional is under or over biding.  Furthermore, our systems may limit the number of Proposals which each Customer may receive (e.g. 5 for plumbing work and 10 for dentist).  We will also indicate the maximum number of Proposals a Professional may do for each Job, and we may also limit the number of monthly Proposals each Professional may send overall.  We do this at our discretion, in order to make the Site and App as effective possible for all users.

As a general rule, we do not review, moderate or select the Requests, Proposals and Jobs (although we reserve the right to do so and may edit and reject them at our discretion).

Once a Customer has received a Proposal, they may contact the Professional to discuss it further, or not.  We shall not be responsible if a Customer chooses to ignore a Proposal.  If a Customer do contacts the Professional, the Professional will be able to use the functionalities of Local Services Pro in order to message and discuss the details of the Job with the Customer.

Booking Contract.  Each Job contract for the provision of services will be solely between the Professional and the Customer.  Furthermore, where a Professional and a Customer agree to mutually engage for the provision of a Job and to make the appertaining payment via Local Services Pro, we shall not be considered a third party within the definition of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999; and we will not incur into any obligation under the Job contract between the Professional and Customer, and cannot ultimately enforce any obligation(s) relating to it.

Booking Charges
Customers and Professionals will decide the final cost for each Job.  There will be no charge if:
(i) a Customer cancels a Future Booking via the Site or App at least twenty four (24) hours prior to the date on which a Job is scheduled to be commenced; and/or
(ii) a Customer cancels an On Demand Booking via the App, within ten (10) minutes of booking the Job.
Henceforth, there will be a Local Services Pro charge if: (i) a Customer cancels or reschedules a Future Booking within the twenty four (24) hours prior to the Job’s appointment time; (ii) when a Customer cancels an On Demand Booking after ten (10) minutes of booking the Job; and/or
(iii) where a Customer has confirmed the Job appointment with a Professional, and the Professional has already begun working on the Job or is traveling to the Location (e.g. a Professional accepted a Job via On Demand Booking within ten (10) minutes after a Customer accepted the Proposal).

Unlike many other job platforms, if a Customer doesn't review a Proposal submitted by a Professional within four (4) days after being sent to a Job’s Request, Local Services Pro will automatically refund the Professional’s credits used for the Proposal.  We do this is in order to ensure that Professionals are communicating with Customers who are seriously considering hiring them for a Job.
Professionals will also receive an automatic refund if the Customer cancels the Job Request prior to reviewing any Proposals.
If a Professional arrives for a scheduled Job and is unable to contact or find the Customer or to gain access to the Location, the Professional will have a twenty (20) minute term to message and attempt to contact the Customer, after which the Job will be cancelled and the Customer will be charged, as applicable, either:
(i) the minimum hourly charge for the Job; or
(ii) the fixed Job price.

General Payment Terms
Users must provide us valid and current billing information.  Except as expressly set forth herein, all purchases are final and non-cancelable or non-refundable.  If we detect any chargeback or if any payment is not received by us for any reason from a credit card or account, you will promptly pay us any and all amounts due to us upon notice.  Any failure or inability by us to process any payment hereunder does not relieve you from your payment obligations.

You hereby authorize us the charging of your credit card or payment processing account.  In connection thereto, we will submit period charges without further authorization from you, and such authorization shall remain effective until the subscription is cancelled by you.

We use a Stripe, a worldwide accepted third-party payment processor to bill you through a payment account linked to your account on the App or Site.  The processing of payments will be subject to the fees, terms, conditions and privacy policies of such payment processor.  Local Services Pro is not responsible for any and all errors, fees and currency conversions fees by the payment processor, and you should review its terms and policies from time to time, which will govern the provision of services to you.

Mediation Services
Local Services Pro offers mediation services for situations that include, but will not be limited to:
(i) Customers who are not satisfied with the Future Booking and On Demand Booking services provided by a Professional, therefor alleging that the performance and/or quality of a Job is not what such Customer may reasonably expect from the selected Professional; and/or
(ii) Professionals who ascertain that they effectively performed an completed a Job but where a Customer refused to pay them via the cash option.  The mediation services must be solicited within two (2) days from the completion date of the Job by either user.  The Job must have either been executed and marked as completed (or purported to be completed) by the Customer and/or the Professional.  Hereinafter, each mediation instance shall be called a “Dispute”.

Local Services Pro will not take part in a Dispute other than as a mediator, and will make use of the means available via the Services in order to achieve an amicable resolution among the users.  If the Dispute parties cannot reach resolution between themselves (having used all reasonable attempts to do so), the Dispute may be escalated to Local Services Pro by either party, and we will undertake our commercial efforts to offer a non-binding recommendation for the settlement of the Dispute.

If Local Services Pro has been unable to resolve a complaint made by a user within eight (8) weeks, the user will be free to address the complaint to Customer Dispute Resolution Ltd, in order to engage into alternative dispute resolution means.  Local Services Pro does not provide consultation or counsel regarding such alternative dispute resolution means.  For more information, our users can visit the Customer Dispute Resolution website at www.cdrl.org.uk, and may also contact Customer Dispute Resolution Ltd (Company No. 09189773) 286 Euston Road, London NW1 3DP.  The engagement of Customer Dispute Resolution Ltd is not of exclusive nature, and our users are free to choose another dispute resolution provider.
