The Marketplace Platform & Services
Booka operates a multi-sided digital marketplace platform that is offered in a number of forms, including mobile and/or web based applications (“Applications”). Among other things, the Booka Marketplace Platform enables you to receive: (i) services rendered by Booka that facilitate your connection to independent third party providers, including local services providers (“Third Party Providers”), for the purchase of services or goods, such as handyman services and/or delivery services from those Third Party Providers; and (ii) any related content or services, including payment processing and customer support. The Booka Marketplace Platform and the Booka content or services described in this Section are collectively referred to as “the Services”. Unless otherwise agreed by Booka in a separate written agreement with you, the Services are made available solely for your personal, noncommercial use.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR ABILITY TO ORDER VIDEO CONFERENCING AND OTHER SERVICES FROM THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS THROUGH THE USE OF THE BOOKA MARKETPLACE PLATFORM AND SERVICES DOES NOT ESTABLISH BOOKA AS A PROVIDER OF HANDYMAN SERVICES OR AS A LOCAL SERVICE PROVIDER IN GENERAL. BOOKA IS NOT A COMMON LOCAL SERVICE PROVIDER, DOES NOT SERVE YOU WITH HANDYMAN SERVICES, AND USE OF THE BOOKA MARKETPLACE PLATFORM IS ONLY OPEN TO REGISTERED USERS OF THE BOOKA MARKETPLACE PLATFORM AND NOT TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT INDEPENDENT THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, INCLUDING HANDYMAN ARE NOT ACTUAL AGENTS, APPARENT AGENTS, OSTENSIBLE AGENTS, OR EMPLOYEES OF BOOKA IN ANY WAY.
YOU ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY SAFETY RELATED EFFORT, FEATURE, PROCESS, POLICY, STANDARD OR OTHER EFFORT UNDERTAKEN BY BOOKA, IN THE INTEREST OF PUBLIC SAFETY (WHETHER REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE REGULATIONS OR NOT), IS NOT AN INDICIA OF AN EMPLOYMENT, ACTUAL AGENCY, APPARENT AGENCY, OR OSTENSIBLE AGENCY RELATIONSHIP WITH AN INDEPENDENT THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER.
Third Party Services and Content
You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Applications may be dependent on the third party from which you received the Application’s license, e.g., the Apple iPhone or Android app stores (“App Store”). You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is between you and Booka and not with the App Store and that Booka is responsible for the provision of Services as described in this Agreement. However, if you downloaded the Application from the Apple App Store, Apple and its subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement. Upon your acceptance of this Agreement, Apple shall have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.
You understand that use of the Services may result in charges to you for the services or goods you receive ("Charges"). Booka will enable your payment of the applicable Charges for services or goods obtained through your use of the Services. Charges will include applicable taxes where required by law. Charges may include other applicable fees, cancellation fees, and/or surcharges.
All Charges and payments will be enabled by Booka using the preferred payment method designated in your Account, after which you will receive a receipt. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Booka may use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Booka.
As between you and Booka, Booka reserves the right to establish or adjust Charges for any or all services or goods obtained through the use of the Services at any time. Booka will use reasonable efforts to inform you of Charges that may apply, provided that you will be responsible for Charges incurred under your Account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof.
With respect to Third Party Providers, Charges you incur will be owed directly to Third Party Providers, and Booka will collect payment of those charges from you, on the Third Party Provider’s behalf as their limited payment collection agent, and payment of the Charges shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the Third Party Provider. Booka will consider in good faith any request from a Third Party Provider to modify the Charges for a particular service or good. This payment structure is intended to fully compensate a Third Party Provider, if applicable, for the services or goods obtained in connection with your use of the Services. There also may be certain Charges you incur that will be owed and paid directly to Booka or its affiliates. For the avoidance of doubt, Booka does not charge a fee for a user to access the Booka Marketplace Platform, but retains the right to charge users a fee or any other Charge for accessing Services made available through the Marketplace Platform.
If you think a correction should be made to any Charge you incurred, you must let Booka know in writing within 30 days after the Charge took place or Booka will have no further responsibility and you waive your right to later dispute the amounts charged.
We try to make Booka available for use 24/7/365 and strive for low downtime and fail rates. We will inform you that our availability is dependent on third party service providers accessability. We will work hard with our Third Party Service Providers to be available at all times.
