Important note on Service Providers. By using the Services You understand and acknowledge that We provide a marketplace that connects you with Service Providers (including their personnel and subcontractors) and that such Service Providers are fully independent and not employees of Yardly. Although we do not control Service Providers or the provision of Service Provider Services they are required as a condition of being part of our community to adhere to certain basic conduct standards such as professional conduct, reliability, honesty and good workmanship. Service Providers are not permitted to represent themselves as our employees or that they have the ability to bind us to certain actions. If any Service Provider does so you should inform us of that. Service Providers are solely responsible for determining the means and manner of performing the services to you and you understand that we do not have any control over or any oversight of how Service Providers deliver services. We are not responsible for delivering on or completing any Service Provider Services and we are not responsible for and will not be liable in any way for any act or omissions of Service Providers or their subcontractors and personnel. You should therefore ensure that you carry out your own searches and ask questions of Service Providers to satisfy yourself of their credentials and ability to perform the services you need performed, prior to engaging any Service Provider for Service Provider Services.
Booking Terms. Rates for Service Provider Services are set out in the App and Site. Payment will be taken by us from you if you book Service Provider Services and the Service Provider will be paid by us in accordance with the terms in Section 8. Please note that any contract for the provision and use of services is between you and the Service Provider and not between you and us. Service Providers must adhere to the Service Guidelines posted on the Site which sets out parameters, guidelines and further specific details for provision of the seasonal maintenance services, vehicles and other obstructions, timing of services, extreme weather conditions and damage to property so you should read this carefully before engaging anyone to provide Service Provider Services. If you have further questions about the Services, please review the Yardly FAQ or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No Endorsement. It is your sole responsibility to verify whether the qualifications and expertise of any particular Service Provider You select meets your requirements. You may do this by asking questions or requesting certifications or references directly from the Service Provider. We only facilitate the engagement of Clients with Service Providers and we do not and cannot endorse any services offered by Service Providers. We also cannot oversee the Service Providers or the Service Provider Services and are not a party to any agreement or contract that you enter into with a Service Provider. You therefore acknowledge and agree that if you elect to engage with any Service Provider, such dealings are solely between you and the Service Provider and we shall not have any responsibility or liability for any losses or damages that you may incur as a result of any such dealings.

Changes to Service Provider Services; Cancelling Service Provider Services. If you experience any delays or problems on the Service Provider Services you should first follow-up with the Service Provider and if the problem will require changes to the agreed Service Provider Services scope or cost, you will work, in good faith, with the Service Provider to revise the original contract and to perform as close as possible to the terms of the original contract. If a Service Provider is engaged on Service Provider Services and cannot complete them for any reason we require them to also notify us immediately so that appropriate steps can be taken to resolve the issue. If for any reason you cannot proceed with or have Service Provider Services completed, you must also inform us as soon as possible and the Service Provider stating reasons. You may be liable to pay the agreed fee for the Service Provider Services for cancellations without cause or a reasonable proportion agreed with the Service Provider.
