Kolu Terms of Service
The Effective Date of these Terms of Service is December 20, 2017.
Kolu, Inc. (hereinafter “Kolu,” “we” or “us”) provides this website, our computing applications and the data, information, tools, updates and similar materials delivered or provided by us (collectively, the “Service”), subject to your agreement to and compliance with the conditions set forth in this Terms of Service agreement (the “Agreement”).
This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions governing your use of the Service. By using the Service or otherwise entering into this Agreement, you are creating a binding contract with us. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you may not use the Service.
We may revise or update this Agreement by posting an amended version through the Service and making you aware of the revisions, which may be through posting to the Service or otherwise. Your use of the Service following an update to this Agreement (or other acceptance method) is considered acceptance of the updated Agreement.
As long as you are in compliance with the conditions of this Agreement and all incorporated documents, we hereby grant you a limited, revocable, non-assignable, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive license to access, receive and use the Service. No rights not explicitly listed are granted.
The following additional terms are incorporated into this Agreement as if fully set forth herein:
• Copyright Policy
• Complaint Policy (including Privacy and Trademark)
There are two types of users on the Service: those offering the engagement of their own services (“Providers”) and those seeking to engage Providers (“Customers”, and together with Providers, “Users”).
You must be at least eighteen (18) years old to use the Service as a Customer, and at least twenty one (21) years old to use the Service as a Provider. By using the Service, you represent that you meet the applicable minimum age requirement.
Some parts or all of the Service may not be available to the general public, and we may impose eligibility rules from time to time. We reserve the right to amend or eliminate these eligibility requirements at any time.
We do not represent or warrant that access to the Service will be error-free or uninterrupted, or without defect, and we do not guarantee that Users will be able to access or use the Service, or its features, at all times. We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice.
The Service may contain typographical errors or inaccuracies, including relating to price, and may not be complete or current. We reserve the right to correct any such errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice, even if your order has already been accepted or processed.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE THE PRODUCTS OR ANY SERVICES BEING OFFERED OR RENDERED BY PROVIDERS. THE SERVICE IS LIMITED TO A MEANS OF COMMUNICATING AND COORDINATING WITH OTHER PARTIES. IF THE SERVICE IS USED TO COORDINATE THE PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES FROM PROVIDERS, IT IS UP TO THE PROVIDER TO OFFER THEIR GOODS OR SERVICES, AND FOR THE CUSTOMER TO DETERMINE THE SUITABILITY OR SAFETY OF SUCH GOODS OR SERVICES. WE HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY RELATING TO ANY PROVIDER’S GOODS OR SERVICES OR THE ACTIONS OF ANY USER.
Although we may not investigate or perform background searches on Users of the Service, including Providers or Customers, as a User, you consent to us conducting a full background search on you. Nevertheless, it is ultimately up to each User to ensure their own safety in your interactions and meetings with other Users of the Service.
Any and all claims relating to your satisfaction with any services or goods provided to you by Providers shall solely be brought against such Providers, and you agree not to include us in any such claim.
Offerings,Cancellations and Payments
As a Provider, you may post the availability of your services to the Service. If you, as a Provider, post the availability of goods or services to other users, you may elect the rate you wish to charge those other users from the options provided by the Service. That rate will be applied to the different tiers of Provider services that may be offered through the Service, as set by us from time to time, and will be multiplied by the length of time of the Provider’s service offering.
A Customer may book the services being offered by a Provider, and at that time, will designate the size of the party that will be receiving the Provider’s services.
Either a Customer or Provider may cancel a booking prior to the commencement of the Provider’s services in accordance with our cancellation policy, available here: https://koluapp.com/cancellation-policy/
NOTE THAT CANCELLATION CHARGES MAY APPLY FOR CANCELLATIONS WITHIN A CERTAIN TIME OF THE SCHEDULED PERFORMANCE BY A PROVIDER.
At the time for commencement of performance of the Provider’s services, the Provider and Customer parties will meet. At that time, each Party may confirm each other’s presence and the size of the Customer party. If a Customer party is larger than was booked, the Provider may adjust the size of the Party into the appropriate tier prior to commencement of performance. The Provider and Customer may then proceed with performance.
Either Provider or Customer may end the performance of the services at any time through the functionality of the Service. At the end of the performance, the Service will charge Customer for the applicable tier, length and rate, deduct the Service commission as designated on the Service from time to time, and transmit the balance to Provider thereafter.
All transactions are final, and no refunds are available.
We may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill and remit payments to users and to draw amounts from users’ accounts as indicated. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to these Terms. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. You agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of the Service, and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider or account (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
