TERMS + CONDITIONS
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU READ CAREFULLY BEFORE AGREEING TO OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
1. Scope of Book Beauty Nearby Services
1.1 The Book Beauty Nearby Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Members”) and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are “Artists” and the services they offer are “Artist Services”) to publish such Artist Services on the Book Beauty Nearby Platform (“Personal Services”) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to book such Artist Services (Members using Artist Services are “Beauty Users”). Artist Services may include the offering of personal beauty services ("Beauty Service"), single or multi-day activities in various categories.
1.2 As the provider of the Book Beauty Nearby Platform, Book Beauty Nearby does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Personal services or Artist Services. Artists alone are responsible for their Personal services and Artist Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Book Beauty Nearby is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Book Beauty Nearby an agency. Book Beauty Nearby is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payment Terms.
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Book Beauty Nearby has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Artist Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Personal service descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. Book Beauty Nearby does not endorse any Member, Personal service or Artist Services. Any references to a Member being "verified" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Book Beauty Nearby about any Member, including of the Member's identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to use Artist Services, accept a booking request from a Beauty User, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Personal service at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by Book Beauty Nearby of any Artist or Personal service.
1.4 If you choose to use the Book Beauty Nearby Platform as an Artist or Co-Artist (as defined below), your relationship with Book Beauty Nearby is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Book Beauty Nearby for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Book Beauty Nearby.
1.5 To promote the Book Beauty Nearby Platform and to increase the exposure of Personal services to potential Beauty Users, Personal services and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Members who speak different languages, Personal services and other Member Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. Book Beauty Nearby cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Members are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The Book Beauty Nearby Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
1.6 The Book Beauty Nearby Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”).

Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by Book Beauty Nearby of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, Book Beauty Nearby cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Book Beauty Nearby Platform.
