You agree not to provide User Content that is defamatory, libelous, hateful, violent, obscene, pornographic, unlawful, or otherwise offensive, whether or not such material may be protected by law. Should HIREMATE be informed of such User Content, HIREMATE is entitled to review, monitor, or remove such User Content.
You are responsible for obtaining the data network access necessary to use the Services. Your mobile network’s data and messaging rates and fees may apply if You access or use the Services from a wireless-enabled device and You shall be responsible for such rates and fees. You are responsible for acquiring and updating compatible hardware or devices necessary to access and use the Services and the Application and/or the Website and any updates thereto. HIREMATE does not guarantee that the Services, any portion thereof, will function on any particular hardware or devices. In addition, the Services may be subject to malfunctions and delays inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications.
The Services are provided by HIREMATE to You free of charge. HIREMATE reserves the right to introduce a fee for the provision of the Services. If HIREMATE decides to introduce such a fee, HIREMATE will inform You accordingly and allow You to either continue or terminate Your access to the Services through the Application and/or the Website, at Your option. You understand that use of the Services may result in Charges to You for the Third Party Services You receive from a Third Party Provider. By ordering Third Party Services through the use of the Services, You are deemed to have accepted to pay the Charges for such Third Party Service You requested, as communicated and described to You on the Application and/or the Website as relevant prior to Your order.
The payment structure described in this Section 4 is intended to fully compensate the Third Party Provider for the Third Party Services provided.
As between You and HIREMATE, You acknowledge and agree that Charges may be established, removed and/or revised for any or all Third Party Services as set forth herein, being agreed that applicable Charges are those in force at the time Your order of the Third Party Services is definitely placed in the Application and/or the Website through the use of the Services.
HIREMATE or an HIREMATE affiliate may facilitate payments of Charges to Third Party Services that You have ordered through the Application and/or the Website as limited payment collection agent for the relevant Third Party Providers. Payment of the Charges in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by You to the Third Party Provider.
All Charges are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by HIREMATE as the case may be using the preferred payment method designated in Your Account, after which HIREMATE will send You a receipt by email. If Your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, You agree that HIREMATE or its affiliate may, as the Third Party Provider’s limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in Your Account, if available.
Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes including VAT where required by law.
Charges paid by You are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise provided in these Terms or decided otherwise by the Third Party Provider.
You retain the right to request lower Charges from a Third Party Provider for Third Party Services provided to You, at the time You receive such Third Party Services. HIREMATE will respond accordingly to any request from a Third Party Provider to modify the Charges for a particular Third Party Service.
The Rates that apply for the Third Party Services provided by a Third Party Provider can be found on the Application and/or the Website as relevant. These may be modified or updated from time to time. As part of Your booking request and depending on the Third Party Service and/or location at stake, the Application and/or the Website will provide You with the Rates or an estimate of the Rates You will be charged for the provision of the Third Party Services.
The Rates may take into account, without limitation and depending on the Third Party Service ordered, the distance, the duration of the Third Party Service, the territory where the Third Party Services are provided, any peak pricing or any changes agreed with the Third Party Provider. You acknowledge and agree in particular that Rates applicable upon booking in certain geographical areas may increase substantially during times of high demand. It is Your responsibility to remain informed about the current Rates. Changes to Your order and/or the performance of the relevant Third Party Service as originally ordered may result in a revision of the Rates.
Supplementary Charge(s) may apply to You in connection with the Third Party Services, as detailed in the Application and/or the Website. The amount of each Supplementary Charge is provided in the Application and/or the Website as relevant, and available at the time of the validation of the corresponding order. Supplementary Charges will be charged to You using the payment method that You chose with regards to Your order.
Supplementary Charges may notably include overtime, out of hours pay or other fees as incurred by Third Party Providers in relation to the performance of the relevant Third Party Service that You ordered, and the following:
If You make the Third Party Provider wait before the start or during the performance of the Third Party Services beyond the relevant period of time indicated as being free of charge in the Application and/or the Website, HIREMATE may charge You a waiting fee on behalf of the Third Party Provider.
Regarding the nature of the Third Party Services, You acknowledge as a Consumer that You have no right of withdrawal in connection with the Third Party Services. However, as a commercial gesture, HIREMATE may offer You the possibility to cancel the ordered Third Party Service, in which case HIREMATE may charge You a cancellation fee on behalf of the Third Party Provider. The modalities and amount of such cancellation fee are communicated to You in the Application and/or the Website as relevant, and available at the time of the validation of the corresponding order.
You shall be responsible for the cost of repair for damage to, or necessary cleaning of, Third Party Provider property resulting from use of the Third Party Services under Your Account in excess of normal “wear and tear”. In the event that a Third Party Provider reports the need for repair following Your use of the relevant Third Party Service offered by such Third Party Provider, and such repair or damage request is reasonably verified by HIREMATE, HIREMATE may charge You a fee on behalf of the Third Party Provider.
HIREMATE may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar Third Party Services obtained through the use of the Services, and You agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to You, shall have no bearing on Your use of the Services, the Third Party Services and/or the Charges applied to You.
The limitations and disclaimer in the sections 5.1 and 5.2 below do not purport to limit liability of HIREMATE or alter Your rights as a Consumer that cannot be excluded under applicable law.
You agree that HIREMATE is a technology platform and that HIREMATE does not provide the Third Party Services ordered through the use of the Services. As a result, HIREMATE’s liability is limited to the accessibility, content, use and proper functioning of the Services.
The Services are provided “as is” and “as available.” HIREMATE disclaims all representations and warranties, express, implied or statutory, not expressly set out in these Terms, including the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. In addition, HIREMATE makes no representation, warranty, or guarantee regarding the reliability, timeliness, quality, suitability or availability of the Services or the Third Party Services or that the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free. HIREMATE does not guarantee the quality, suitability, safety or ability of Third Party Providers. You agree that the entire risk arising out of Your use of the Services or the Third Party Services remains solely with You, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law or except as set forth hereunder.
HIREMATE shall not be liable for indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages, including lost profits, lost data, personal injury or property damage related to, in connection with or otherwise resulting from any use of the Services, even if HIREMATE has been advised of the possibility of such damages. HIREMATE shall not be liable for any damages, liability or losses arising out of: (i) Your use of or reliance on the Services or Your inability to access or use the Services; or (ii) any transaction or relationship between You and any Third Party Provider, even if HIREMATE has been advised of the possibility of such damages. HIREMATE shall not be liable for delay or failure in performance resulting from causes beyond HIREMATE’s reasonable control.
HIREMATE shall sustain no such strict and several liability (whether in whole or in part) in case of non-performance or improper performance of the relevant hire services when such non-performance or improper performance is attributable to You, or where such non-performance or improper performance results from an unpredictable and insurmountable cause due to a third party to the provision of the hire services, or in case of force majeure.
It is Your responsibility to take all appropriate measures to protect Your electronic equipment and the data stored on Your equipment from any damage caused by using internet.
You are liable for any damage suffered by HIREMATE as a result of Your violation of these Terms, the use You made of the Services, the use by HIREMATE of Your User Content, a violation of the rights of any third-party, including the Third Party Providers.
You agree to indemnify and hold HIREMATE and its officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising out of or in connection with: (i) Your use of the Services or Third Party Services obtained through Your use of the Services; (ii) Your breach or violation of any of these Terms; (iii) HIREMATE’s use of Your User Content; or (iv) Your violation of the rights of any third party, including Third Party Providers.
You acknowledge that You are free at all times to use the Application, the Website and/or the Services or not. You and HIREMATE may terminate these Terms or any Services, if the other party violates the provisions of these Terms. When HIREMATE terminates these Terms, You remain responsible for the payment of the Third Party Services provided to You through the use of the Services until termination. Furthermore, HIREMATE may generally cease offering or deny access to the Services or any portion thereof if You fraudulently use Your Account or the associated Services, or if You fail to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date Account information, including but not limited to You having an invalid or expired payment method on file. In particular, if HIREMATE is unsuccessful in charging to Your payment method on file the Charges that are due, HIREMATE may suspend or remove all or part of Your access to the Service until the amount concerned is unpaid.
HIREMATE makes available to users acting as Consumers a mediation scheme for consumer disputes relating to the Services offered by HIREMATE in Ireland or to the present Terms with a view to their amicable resolution.
In accordance with the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1980, any dispute of a contractual nature concerning the performance of a sale agreement and/or service agreement by HIREMATE which could not have been resolved in the context of a complaint previously submitted to HIREMATE’s customer service, consumers may resort to the above described mediation.
Also as part of the mediation scheme offered by HIREMATE, eligible Consumers can also submit their complaints relative to the Services or these Terms via the European dispute resolution platform available online by the European Commission, accessible here, pursuant to the Regulation (EU) No 524 / 2013 of 21 May 2013.
Should the mediation fail, the dispute proceeding as described below shall apply.
The stipulations of this article do not derogate from the Irish legal rules relating to Consumers. When applicable, such imperative rules shall govern and construe these Terms to the extent relevant and any dispute will be referred to and may be finally resolved by the Irish Courts.
