The Client expressly authorizes Eelp! to forward to the email address provided by them in the App, both Eelp!’s bills for the hired plan and those generated by the Provider of each service and product contracted by the Client
8. Providers Management
One of Eelp!’s main activities is to continuously find and select the best Providers of each service for our Clients. Although we are aware that due to the nature of our service, which allows our Clients to delegate all, it may happen that we have not evaluated some of these service providers and products prior to their hiring/purchase. In this case, Eelp! will propose those Providers to their Clients that it believes may provide a better service or product according to the assessment provided by the tools used by Eelp!
As Eelp! identifies those Providers that offer the expected guaantee for their provided services and sold products, they are offered the possibility to collaborate and show their profile in the Platform so the Clients can know them, and also contact them if they deem it appropriate too.
When the Client has hired a service or product offered by a Provider, Eelp! transfers the Client’s request for hiring to the Service Provider. Eelp! will mediate with the Service Providers on behalf of the Client, for payment services selected by the Client in its request to hire.
In case such Provider can not ultimately provide the service or product, Eelp! will make every effort to mediate the offer with the following most appropriate service Provider by notifying at all times the need for change to the Client, and requesting their approval.
The Client may always indicate to the Eelper their preferred service or products provider . The Eelper will take into consideration their preference, and will try to get the order for the Client with their favorite Provider. If this is not available in the terms desired by the Client, and said request cannot be made, Eelp! will help the Client and the Provider to arrange an alternative, or, if not possible, to find another Provider that meets the requirements, and will be proposed to the Client.
Eelp! is not required to guarantee success when mediating with a Provider, and cannot influence the acceptance of the offer made by the Provider.
Eelp! does not perform intermediation of employees, but performs exclusively intermediation of independent Providers.
It is the responsibility of the Provider to provide their services diligently with the highest quality standards and in compliance at all times, to the regulations that may apply, including hiring all permits and licenses required. The Provider shall be accountable to the Client, and is bound to compensate any damages resulting directly or indirectly from the provision of services to Eelp!’s Clients.
9. Right to quit and cancel services and purchased products
As a rule, the Client may cancel an order, as far as Eelp! has not already proceeded to purchase it, if it is a product request, and up to 24 hours before the service when it comes to a request for a service.
For both products and services, orders are particularly governed by the specific conditions of each of the Providers. Eelp! will mediate as much as possible so the cancellation policy is auspicious for the Client, and in the case of the provision of a service, so that the Client can in some cases cancel up to 2 hours before its execution, informing the Client when that is possible.
If the Client cancels a service or a product purchase, Eelp! will not charge any amount to the Client for processing the cancellation.
Eelp! can negotiate favorable conditions for its Clients in the event of cancellations for reasons beyond the Providers.
However, if according to Article 103 a) of Royal Decree 1/2007 of November 16th, approving the revised text of the General Law for the Protection of Consumers and Users, and according to the own nature of the services offered by the provider, it were considered that the execution of the service has started, and therefore the Client has no right to withdraw from the service request, the Provider may require payment for cancellation fees to the Client.
Moreover, if the provider had made the purchase of a product or hired a service once the Client has canceled an order, the Provider will attempt to recover the amount of the product or service; if not possible, the Client is responsible for dealing with said amount, whether they want to finally be delivered with the concerning product or service by the Provider.
10. Payment Security
For the safety of its Clients, Eelp! has relied in the payment system by credit card to a payment gateway, specifically the one used by the Banco de Sabadell SA. Provided bank information is encrypted and transmitted securely to servers in the bank, and then they are verified with the issuing bank to prevent fraud and abuse.
This method of data entry is secured with a 128-bits SSL encryption technology (Secure Socket Layer) . It is one of the most advanced and effective protection systems currently available, thanks to which, no third party will have Internet access to this information on banking data entered by the Client.
Only the Bank has access to the banking data linked to this payment method, so that Eelp! does not know or register any of these data during the payment transaction, or at any other time.
In order to ensure greater security to our Clients, Eelp! reserves the right to request the documentation regarding the identity and payment methods of the Client prior to the order purchase or service delivery.
Eelp! can collect, use, and share precise information about locations; including real-time geographic location of the client’ mobile device to efficiently manage the provision of the requested services. In this regard, Clients expressly agree that their geolocation data is shared with Providers in order to successfully provide the requested service at all times. This data will not be disclosed in any other case.
Eelp! requires Providers to comply with existing legislation and to have the necessary insurance coverage for the provision of their services.
Purchased products and provided services are governed by the specific conditions of each provider and by the current law.
Under no circumstances and to any extent, to the full extent allowed by law, Eelp! shall not be liable for direct or indirect damages, or consequential damages or loss of profits, for any damage arising from the use of products or services purchased in the app and/or website. Eelp! will not respond in any case for breach by the Provider of goods and/or services. This applies also, but not exclusively, in cases of violation of the conditions set out in the Service Agreement and the Terms and Conditions.
The Client explicitly agrees that by accepting the present general conditions, any liability derived from the use of the purchased products or services corresponds only and exclusively to the Client. The Client also undertakes to maintain Eelp! completely unscathed in all case of any damage, direct or indirect, not for consequential damages or loss of profits, that may be caused to them in connection to the acquired goods or services.
If the Client wants to proceed with the return of a product, or wishes to make a complaint about the performance of a service, they should contact the contracted Provider directly. In any case, Eelp! can collaborate with the management of the claim to facilitate the solution with the Provider.
13. Subsidiary "no guarantee" clause
Eelp! does not guarantee the authenticity, accuracy, novelty, reliability, legality or no-violation of third party rights by Providers. In this regard, Clients say they understand that Eelp! is an independent company that connects Clients and Providers, and assumes no liability derived from the information provided by Suppliers, or for any damages or losses that the Client may eventually suffer from a breach of these Terms and Conditions of Service. Hence, Eelp! will never be liable for the availability of the Providers, or the adequate and successful performance of services provided.
By becoming members of the Platform, Clients agree that any legal liability they may intend to exercise as a result of actions or omissions of Providers will be limited to those providers, not proceeding liability action against Eelp!.
