Description of the Odd Job’s Service
The Site is an open medium where users may post their details to advertise services such as babysitting, DIY, gardening, house sitting and any other services that may be listed on the Site’s
Search for Service page from time to time (“Services Providers”). Service Providers’ details will be made available to other users (“Customers”) seeking to make use of services offered by the Service Providers. The Site makes provision for Customers to engage the Service Providers to provide the services offered.
Neither The Odd Job nor the Site is an agency. The Site functions as a search tool for Service Providers to advertise their services and Customers to locate and contact Service Providers living or willing to work in the areas where Customers require services. The Odd Job shall not be a party to, benefit from, or be subject to any obligations under any agreement between any Customers and Service Providers arising out of their use of the Site. The Odd Job does not carry out any background checks on Customers or Service Providers. Customers should satisfy themselves that any Service Providers they locate through use of the Site are suitable, capable and legally authorised to provide the services they are offering, and Service Providers should satisfy themselves that any Customers by whom they are approached, are suitable, capable and legally authorised to receive the services they are requesting.
To access the Site or some of the resources it has to offer, you may be asked to provide registration details. It is a condition of your use of this Site that all the details you provide are correct, current, and complete. If we believe the details are not correct, current, or complete, we reserve the unconditional right to refuse you access to or use of the Site or any of its resources, and to terminate or suspend your account and/or registration.
