1. AGE LIMITATION
THE SERVICES ARE NOT INTENDED FOR INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE AGE OF 18. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICES.
2. The Services.
2.1. The Services are designed to connect Customers with Service Providers and help coordinate the provision of services by such Service Providers through the App. Generally stated, the Services allow: (i) Customers to submit descriptions of the services they need, using a video filmed on your mobile device, text messages or images within the App interface (“Service Request”), (ii) Service Providers to provide quotes to Customers with respect to the Service Request (“Quotes”), and (iii) Customers and Service Providers to benefit from certain features in the App to assist in fulfilling Service Requests, such as Project tracking tools, and payment processing. ClipCall’s responsibilities are limited to providing the Services as summarized above, and more fully described in the balance of these Terms. We also provide, for the benefit of Customers and the maintenance of the quality of the Services generally, our Project Success Plan, which is hereby incorporated by reference.
2.2. As a Customer, you represent and warrant (i) that the Service Requests you submit are true and accurate, and (ii) you will pay the agreed upon price for the project that is described in your Service Request (“Project”) subject to the negotiated terms and conditions between you and the Service Provider (payment for the Project, however, shall be as set forth in Section 10 of these Terms). You are solely responsible for the accuracy and completeness of a Service Request you submit and for all content contained in a Service Request. Submission of a Service Request does not obligate ClipCall to make the Service Request available on the Services and ClipCall may remove a Service Request with or without notice at any time for any reason. You agree that ClipCall will not be liable to you for any removal of a Service Request or any part thereof.
2.3. ClipCall makes no representation to you, as the Customer, regarding Service Providers, including that such Service Providers are qualified to perform the applicable Project. You acknowledge and agree that the inclusion of a particular Service Provider on a list of Service Providers does not operate as a recommendation of such Service Provider by ClipCall. The list of Service Providers available through the Service may not be a complete list of all potentially qualified service providers in your area. Each Service Provider indicates in its Business Profile (available to you via the Services) certain information and qualifications which may assist you in comparing Service Providers, and in selecting the one most suitable to perform your Service Request. In addition, we may publish through the Service certain business scores and recommendations with respect to Service Providers, which are based in part on aggregate Customer feedback, and which may assist your decision. However, Customers are solely responsible for selecting the Service Providers they eventually choose to work with. The Customer and Service Provider can then enter into an agreement directly with each other for the Service Provider to perform the Project. Other than with respect to the payment procedures described in these Terms, Customers and Service Providers (and not ClipCall) are solely responsible for any interaction between them, and ClipCall has no liability for the performance of a Project.
2.4. By participating as a Service Provider, you represent and warrant: (i) you are registering either for yourself (if an individual or unincorporated business) or for a business that you have the authority to legally bind; (ii) that the information you submit to us or a Customer or otherwise post on the Services, whether in your Business Profile, in a Quote, or otherwise (collectively, a “Service Posting”), is true and accurate and that you will promptly update it (and your Service Provider Financial Information as defined and set forth in Section 10.3) promptly to maintain their accuracy and completeness for so long as you maintain an Account with us; (iii) that you will perform the Projects in accordance with your Service Posting; (iv) that you have obtained and will maintain all certifications, licenses and legal requirements necessary to perform each Project for which you provide a Quote, and that you comply with all applicable laws and industry standards (including business licenses and, to the extent applicable, the collection and remittance of sales taxes); (v) that you will maintain valid workers compensation and professional liability insurance policies in amounts sufficient to meet your statutory obligations and to cover any damages that might occur during or as a result of performing each Project; (vi) that you will provide the services in a Project without imposing restrictions or policies not fully described to Customers in writing prior to such Customers engaging you to perform a Project; and (vii) that you will not solicit Customers to pay for your services outside of the Services or otherwise circumvent any fees that are paid or would be payable to ClipCall, to the extent applicable, and (viii) that you understand that any work performed for a Customer to whom you are introduced through the Service is subject to these Terms, including the fees payable to ClipCall. You agree that any breach of the above representations, or other breach of this Section 2.4, may result in your immediate removal as a Service Provider from the App by ClipCall, in our sole discretion, as well as a penalty of $2,000, which you agree is not punitive damages but a reasonable estimation of the liquidated damages caused by such breach. You further agree that (A) unless you obtain the consent of any Customer, you will use the personal information of the Customer provided to you by ClipCall in connection with the Services only to communicate with and provide your services to the Customer, and for no other purpose, (B) all communications with Customers will be conducted via the App, (C) you will not turn off or disable the ability of the App to provide Customers and ClipCall with information about your location, which you acknowledge is a critical element of the Services, and (D) you will guarantee the workmanship of the services you provide for a minimum of six (6) months (the “Service Provider Warrantee”) , and not charge Customer for any additional services required to honor the Service Provider Warrantee during such period.
2.5. You are solely responsible for the accuracy and completeness of all Service Postings and for all content contained in such submissions. Submission of a Service Posting does not obligate ClipCall to make your posting or any of its contents available on the Services and ClipCall may remove any Service Posting with or without notice at any time for any reason. You agree that ClipCall will not be liable to you for any removal of a Service Posting or any part thereof. You acknowledge that ClipCall is screening potential Service Providers and that ClipCall publishes business scores and ratings with respect to Service Providers, which may include reviews of you.
2.6. ClipCall does not control the quality, safety, or legality of any aspect of the Project, the ability of Service Providers to provide their services, or the ability of Customers to pay Service Providers. The relationship between the Customers and the Service Providers are governed by the provisions of these Terms as follows: if you are a Customer, you provide to each Service Provider the covenants, representations and warranties provided to ClipCall in Section 2.2. If you are a Service Provider, you provide to each Customer the covenants, representations and warranties provided to ClipCall in Sections 2.4 and 2.5. Customers and Service Providers each acknowledge that the other is a third party beneficiary of these Terms, but solely with respect to those provisions.
2.7. Consent to Receive Service Provider Calls and Messages. If you are a Customer, by submitting the Service Request through the App, you agree that your Service Request, including all submitted data, video and content, will be sent to several Service Providers identified by us. You also agree and acknowledge that you may receive telephone calls or text messages from the applicable Service Providers to the telephone number you provide to discuss their potential fulfillment of your Service Request (“Service Provider Calls“) and that such calls may be placed using an automatic telephone dialing system. Service Provider Calls might be connected through ClipCall’s automated system, however, ClipCall does not guarantee that you will receive any Service Provider Calls in connection with your submission of a Service Request. Consent to receive autodialed Service Provider Calls is not a condition of purchasing any property, goods or services and you are always free to search for contact Service Providers directly without using our App.
2.8. BY SUBMITTING A SERVICE REQUEST, YOU EXPLICITLY CONSENT TO RECEIVE EACH SERVICE PROVIDER CALL THAT YOU RECEIVE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SUBMISSION OF SUCH SERVICE REQUEST. IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO RECEIVING SUCH CALLS, DO NOT SUBMIT SERVICE REQUESTS VIA THE APP.
2.9. We do not charge a fee for the calls and/or videos (“Calls”) made via the App; however, depending on your phone plan, your mobile carrier may charge you for each call placed or received via the App, which uses the standard phone and carrier functionality of your mobile device. We assume no responsibility for charges incurred by your using the call functionality of the Services. The call functionality of the Services may not be available in all areas at all times and we have no liability for any such transmission delay or failure. The call functionality may not work in the event of product, software, coverage, or other changes made by your wireless carrier or changes you make to your mobile device. You must provide your own wireless device, subscribe to a wireless service on a participating mobile carrier, and be able to receive calls using that wireless device and your carrier’s service.
2.10. You as the Customer also acknowledge and agree that your Service Request might be published to dedicated domains in social networks, established by ClipCall for the purpose of locating Service Providers (among others).
2.11. You as the Customer acknowledge and agree that that ClipCall publishes business scores and ratings with respect to Service Providers, which may include your reviews.
2.12. You acknowledge and agree that the Service Provider Calls and any other calls or communications placed or received via the App may be recorded and stored by us, and you also acknowledge that you and the Service Provider will be able to access these recordings through the App. This function is essential to the provision of the Services and may not be disabled.
2.13. WHETHER AS A CUSTOMER OR SERVICE PROVIDER, BY PLACING OR ANSWERING A CALL, CHAT OR MESSAGE THROUGH THE APP, YOU EXPLICITLY CONSENT TO CLIPCALL RECORDING AND STORING SUCH PHONE CALL FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING THE SERVICES. IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO SUCH RECORDING, DO NOT PLACE OR ANSWER ANY CALL THROUGH THE APP.
2.14. The video available through the Service Request will be available to the relevant Customer and Service Provider through the App. If you wish to delete the video, please contact ClipCall at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please however note, that once a Project is accepted and the payment taken, neither party can delete the video since it is part of the record and critical to any dispute arising out of the Project.
2.15. You must provide all equipment and software necessary to connect to the App, including a mobile device that is suitable to connect with and use the App. You are solely responsible for any fees, including Internet connection or mobile fees, that you incur when accessing the App.
3. Disclaimers; Release.
3.1. Compliance with Laws. As noted above, Service Providers are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and local ordinances, including without limitation, necessary permits, or other taxes and payments which may be applicable to the performance of their services.
3.2. Limited Identity Verification. You authorize us, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we deem appropriate to help verify or check your identity or prevent fraud, including with respect to our handling of payments through the Service as described below. This may include asking you to provide a form of government identification (e.g. driver’s license or passport or tax ID number), your date of birth, and other information requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address and/or Payment Methods (as defined below); or attempting to screen your information against third party databases. Nevertheless, you acknowledge that ClipCall is not required to attempt to confirm any particular user’s purported identity, and does not warrant that our efforts will be successful. We do not endorse any persons who use or register for the Services. You are finally responsible, whether as a Customer or Service Provider, for determining the identity and suitability of others whom you may contact or who may contact you by means of the Services. You agree to exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with other users. ClipCall encourages you to communicate directly with others through the tools available via the Services and to conduct your own investigation of the other users with whom you interact. You may also wish to consider using a third-party service that provides additional user verification.
3.3. RELEASE. ClipCall makes no warranties regarding users or the Services, Service Provider Postings or other content made available through the Services, or the interactions (if any) between the users within or outside of the Services, and each of the foregoing is provided by us “as is.” Your interactions with other users are solely between you and such user and ClipCall shall not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions except as explicitly set forth in the Project Success Plan. Without limiting the foregoing, as a Customer you should conduct your own investigation prior to hiring a Service Provider to perform a Project. If there is a dispute between you and any other user, ClipCall’s sole and exclusive obligation is set forth in the Project Success Plan. The foregoing disclaimers shall not limit the more general disclaimers in these Terms. Except as set forth in the Project Success Plan, to the extent permitted under applicable laws, you hereby waive, release and forever discharge us (and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns) from every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or relates directly or indirectly to: (i) any incorrect or inaccurate content posted on the Services, whether caused by us or any user of the Services, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Services; (ii) the conduct, whether online or offline, of any Customer or Service Provider; (iii) any injury, loss or damage caused by another user, a Project, or content posted on the Services, whether online or offline; and (iv) any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, the Services’ users’ communications.
3.4. Additional Service Provider Release. Without limiting the general release in Section 3.3, each Service Provider, on its own behalf and on behalf of every individual and corporate third party and subcontractor (collectively, “Subcontractors”) assisting in the performance of a Project, hereby waives, releases and forever discharges ClipCall (and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns) and the relevant Customer, from every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or relates directly or indirectly to Service Provider’s and the Subcontractors’ performance of the Project. Such release applies whether or not Service Provider is required to be licensed or insured in its performance of the Project (and whether or not the Service Provider has complied with the covenants in Section 2.4). ClipCall reserves the right to require any Service Provider, as a condition to continued participation in the Services, to physically sign a separate waiver in form and substance satisfactory to ClipCall.
3.5. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” The foregoing release does not apply to any claims, demands, or any losses, damages, rights and actions of any kind, including personal injuries, death or property damage for any unconscionable commercial practice by ClipCall or for such party’s fraud, deception, false, promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Services.
4. Access to the App and Services.
4.1. Subject to these Terms, we hereby grant you a limited, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable, non-exclusive license to install the App and use the Services subject to these Terms on any applicable devices that are under your control. The Service may not be used for any other purposes without our prior written consent. You may not use the Services if you are not the owner or approved administrator of the device on which you activated or accessed the Services. Furthermore, with respect to any App accessed through or downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store (each an “App Store,” and references to the App Store include the corporate entity and its subsidiaries making the App Store available to you), you agree to comply with all applicable third party terms of the App Store (the “Usage Rules”) when using the App. To the extent these Terms provide for usage rules that are conflict with the Usage Rules, the more restrictive term applies. With respect to any App accessed through or downloaded from the Apple App Store (an “App Store Sourced App”), you will only use the App Store Sourced App on an Apple-branded product that runs iOS (Apple’s proprietary operating system).
4.2. You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the App and the Services is dependent on the third party from whom you received the App license, e.g., the App Store. You acknowledge that the Terms are between you and ClipCall, and not with the App Store. ClipCall, not the App Store, is solely responsible for App and Services, the content thereof, maintenance, support services, and warranty therefor, and addressing any claims relating thereto (e.g., product liability, legal compliance or intellectual property infringement). In order to use the App, you must have access to a wireless network, and you agree to pay all fees associated with such access. You also agree to pay all fees (if any) charged by the App Store in connection with App or Services. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the App is conditioned upon your compliance with, all applicable third-party terms of agreement (e.g., the App Store’s terms and policies) when using the App or Services. You acknowledge that the App Store (and its subsidiaries) are third-party beneficiaries of the Terms and will have the right to enforce them. In addition to the general terms of this Section 4.2, the following applies to any App Store Sourced App:
A. In the event of any failure of the App Store Sourced App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for the App Store Sourced App to you (if any) and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App Store Sourced App. As between ClipCall and Apple, any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be the sole responsibility of ClipCall.
B. You and ClipCall acknowledge that, as between ClipCall and Apple, Apple is not responsible for addressing any claims you have or any claims of any third party relating to the App Store Sourced App or your possession and use of the App Store Sourced App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App Store Sourced App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation, and (iv) claims that the App Store Sourced App or your possession and use of that App Store Sourced App infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights. ClipCall, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such claims to the extent required by these Terms.
C. Without limiting any other terms of the Terms, you must comply with all applicable third-party terms of agreement when using the App Store Sourced App.

At the time the Quote is final, the Service Provider and the Customer will have to approve the Quote as binding through the App, and to book a date to initiate the Project (“Booking”). EVERY USER AGREES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT A BOOKING IS A BINDING COMMITMENT ON SUCH USER – WHETHER AS A CUSTOMER OR SERVICE PROVIDER – AND AGREES TO PERFORM THEIR OBLIGATIONS AS SET FORTH IN THE FINAL BOOKING AND CONSISTENT WITH THESE TERMS.

By ClipCall for Customer Delay. Each Customer agrees that if a Project is not completed or is materially delayed due to the acts or omissions of Customer (e.g., missing parts, materials, etc. that the Customer was supposed to supply, or Service Provider is denied access to the job site), then ClipCall at its option may elect to release the Service Fees (in whole or in part, as determined by ClipCall), to the Service Provider. In the event that ClipCall determines that a release of the entire Service Fee is warranted, the Customer nevertheless will be required to resubmit the Service Request and secure an alternate Service Provider to have the Project performed.
Cancellation by the Customer. If you, the Customer, wish to cancel a Booking, please contact our Live Chat Support. Please note that ClipCall Fee is not refundable, if your request was submitted more than 24 hours post booking. in addition, cost of materials/parts incurred by the Service Provider, including any shipment or delivery fees for such materials or parts will not be refunded as well (such material/parts purchased will remain in your possession and will be your property). If you wish to cancel the Project AFTER Project Start Date, you need to report and initiate a dispute process, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Cancellation by Service Provider. If you, Service Provider wish to cancel a Quote, please contact our live Chat Support. Your ClipCall Account may be suspended due to the following: (1) If you fail to show up without timely notification or cancellation of the Booking; (2) if you communicate with Customers outside of the ClipCall App, including without limitation, chats, calls, videos and payments. You, the Service Provider, understand and approve us to charge your Payment Method to compensate the Customer in the following amounts: (1) $100 penalty for No Show on the Project Start Date, unless due to a force majeure event (such as war or strike, etc.); (2) $50 penalty for cancellation less than 24 hours before the Project Start Date; and (3) $25 penalty for late show of more than 2 hours from the Project Start Date. All of the above events will also affect your Service Provider Quality Score, and ClipCall may publish an automated review on your Account indicating that a Booking was cancelled in such an event.
10.8. Third Party Payment Services Provider.
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate tax information from Service Providers, or to withhold taxes from payouts to Service Providers, or both.

You as a Service Provider are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you as a Service Provider fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold taxes from payments to you, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both. You as a Service Provider understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, (ii) calculation and payment of any Taxes related to your provision of your services to the Customer, and (iii) including the applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in your Quote.
