Instabeauty’s mobile application (the “App“) allows individual customers (“Customers”) to post requests for health and beauty related services (“Jobs”) for the attention of professional providers of such services (“Professionals”), who may then respond to Customers’ Job requests if they are willing to undertake the Job in question. As a Instabeauty Customer you can request a Job from the available selection on the Instabeauty app. Instabeauty will assign a Provider (“Beauty professional”) to the Job. We provide an estimate of the arrival time at the time of requesting the job; this time is only indicative and may vary.

USE OF SERVICES
As a User of the Services you agree to the following:
Any breach of these provisions means the contract created by these terms shall be terminated at once.
ACCOUNTS AND REGISTRATION
In order to receive the Member Services (and, in the case of Customers, any services from beauty Professionals) you will first need to create a Instabeauty account (an “Account”). This is done directly with the Instabeauty mobile app, or on the website www.instabeauty.co.uk The customer app is available for free download from the Apple app store. The Provider beauty professional app is also available for free download from the Apple app store, but can only be activated once a Provider has been on-boarded successfully. Setting up an Account will require you to provide information which may include your mobile phone number, address and card/payment details, and, in the case of Professionals such information may also include professional qualifications, right of work in the UK, proof of necessary liability insurance, photograph and personal details. It is a condition of registering with Instabeauty as a Provider that you hold a UK bank or building society account into which payments from Instabeauty will be made. You hereby agree only to provide information which is true, complete, and accurate and to update it as necessary to keep the information current. We may reject the creation of an Account at our absolute discretion.
An Account is meant for use only by you (the individual User) and you are fully responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all password and Account details, and for all activities that occur under your password or Account (including where the Account is used by another person), unless these activities arise due to our negligence or breach of these terms by us.
You accept responsibility for all reasonable and foreseeable losses which Instabeauty suffers as a result of a breach by you of these terms or your negligence when using the Member Services (including deliberately or negligently allowing others to use your Account). You may cancel your Instabeauty Account at any time by giving us notice at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless otherwise stated herein, all Instabeauty Services will be cancelled within (7) days of receipt of notice from you.
The Instabeauty app functions on iPhone and android devices. As a Instabeauty Provider you must operate a smartphone with sufficient monthly or unlimited data connection. You must agree to receive notifications and for location services to be on continuously. For Instabeauty Providers we may loan you a smartphone for use exclusively with Instabeauty. We will ask you for a deposit for the smartphone, which will be returned to you when we receive back the smartphone in its original packaging, with the originally supplied accessories, the SIM card and in original condition except for minor wear and tear. As a Provider you are responsible for paying any and all associated monthly, or pay as you go usage charges. If you lose or damage the smartphone we provide you are required to repair or replace it at your own expense.
PAYMENT AND PAYMENT SERVICES
The Customer accepts responsibility for paying for any Jobs which are made through the Member Services using his or her account details. By using and/or becoming a registered user of the Member Services, the Customer confirms that he or she has authority to use the payment method or billing account details provided for the purpose of settling any payments due for any purchase made through the Member Services, or that the Customer owes to us.
In order to use the Member Services, a Customer must provide valid information for a valid credit or debit card. Customers may update, add or delete card details at any time by amending the details on their Account.
The debit or credit card details of which have been provided will be charged for the full amount once Instabeauty receives confirmation from a Professional that a Job has been completed.
When a Customer Requests a Job we may pre-authorise payment of a minimum of the first hour of the Job on the payment card added to the app. This pre-authorisation will be released if the Job is cancelled or at the time of final payment. We reserve the right to take the preauthorisation amount in the event the payment for a job is not fully collected and you accept our right to do this.
When a Job is completed Instabeauty calculates the final amount to be paid, including applicable discounts. The Customer may release payment or Instabeauty may take payment. The Customer agrees to hold sufficient funds in their account to pay the final amount as it becomes due and will not request a Job unless they can pay for it. We may, at our sole discretion, not allow a Customer to request a Job if we are outstanding the payment for a prior Job.
All Jobs are requested using a valid payment card and final payment is taken from the card once the Job is completed. Instabeauty reserves the right not to accept certain payment cards including, but not limited to, pre-payment cards.
Instabeauty Providers are paid on a bi-weekly basis direct into a nominated bank account
Instabeauty may use Payment Services at our complete discretion to facilitate payment card processing.
Instabeauty will ensure that the Payment Services comply with such financial and other relevant regulations but will not be responsible for the performance of the Payment Services.
Instabeauty does not directly hold payment card information.
Instabeauty will be responsible for paying the fees charged by the Payment Services.
Instabeauty exists to introduce Customers to Professionals, but Professionals are solely responsible for the quality and outcome of the work they do. Professionals are not employed by Instabeauty and Instabeauty disclaims any liability for the services that the Professionals provide. All Professionals are responsible for their own tax and employment affairs.
We take reasonable steps to check that Professionals are experienced in the services they provide. We check ID, proof of address, certification and right to work and take reasonable steps to determine experience, which may include reference checking. A Customer may review the service provided by a Professional at the end of a Job and these reviews may be made available to other Users to provide assurance.
Instabeauty cannot accept any liability for the suitability of the Provider to do Jobs or the quality of the outcome. Any dispute as to the quality, suitability or any other aspect of the service provided by a Professional must be resolved between the relevant Customer and the Professional. Customers understand that their use of the services provided by Professionals is entirely at the Customer’s own risk and Instabeauty will not be responsible for any damage or losses arising out of the provision of such services.
COMMISSION AND PRICING
A Job is requested at a pre-determined price. Instabeauty will take a commission for introducing a Customer and a Professional. The level of this commission will be calculated as a percentage of the price of the Job and Instabeauty reserves the right to vary the level of commission at any time at its sole discretion. The pre-determined price quoted on the mobile app will be deemed to include commission. Instabeauty will deduct the amount of such commission from the amount paid by the Customer before passing the remainder on to the Professional.
We reserve the right to change the commission structure at any time. By continuing to use the App and/or the Member Services, you are deemed to consent to any such change.
As a Customer you may cancel an on-demand or last minute booking any time after you have confirmed booking, at no cost within the first 5 minutes. After that, a cancellation fee of up to 50% of the value of the booking may apply. If our professionals arrive at the booking location and are unable to contact you or gain access to the job location they will message and attempt to contact you for 15 minutes, after which you may be charged a fee equal to 100% of the value of the booking, and our professional will be forced to cancel the job. For jobs booked in advance, a 12hour cancellation policy applies. If you cancel a pre-booked job less than 12hours in advance you may be charged 50% of the value of the booking. The charge may be waved if you re-schedule with the same professional for an alternative date and time within the following 2 weeks.
As a service provider, you are not allowed to cancel a job after its booked, unless there is an emergency of some sort preventing you from performing the job. In the case of an emergency, Instabeauty will do our best to re-assign your job to another beauty professional. If you cancel a job, for any reason other than an emergency, and Instabeauty is not able to find another beauty professional to fulfil the particular job at the designated date and time, Instabeauty may deduct 100% of the value of the booking from your earnings. If you are more than 15mins late to a job booking, and the client cancels the booking due to your late arrival, we may deduct 100% of the value of the booking from your earnings. If you cancel a job more than once in a 3 week period, you will be suspended from the Instabeauty network until further notice. Suspension or termination notices may be sent to Providers via email and post, and will be considered effective immediately thereafter. You may be later on, re-instated at our sole discretion after a careful consideration on our part.
LOSS OR DAMAGE
If the Customer suffers loss or damage to their property and attributes the loss or damage to a Provider, in the first instance the Parties should try to resolve between themselves, which Instabeauty may facilitate. Instabeauty will initiate a claims procedure if the loss or damage is reported to us and may take further action including reporting the matter to the police.
The Customer will be liable to pay an excess of £25 in the event of a claim for damage, which we accept on behalf of the Provider. The absolute limit on any claim is £100.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND REVIEWS
Customers and Providers are encouraged to offer reviews in the form of star rating, or feedback, for each other each time a Job is completed. You agree to provide a prompt review that is true and fully reflects your experience with the Customer or Provider with who you have engaged.
Instabeauty reserves the right to terminate the Accounts of Users who repeatedly receive poor reviews.
PROMOCODES AND VOUCHERS
Instabeauty may at our discretion issue a Promocode (or Voucher) to a Customer offering a discount from the total price of a Job. Such Promocodes are one time usage codes, have a finite expiry date and may only be applied one code per job. If the full value of a Promocode is not used in a Job the residual unused value will be lost. A Promocode may be withdrawn at any time at our sole discretion.
Only one promocode may be used per household.
We may enter into agreements with third party companies where Promocodes are purchased by Customers at discounted prices. In such a case the sale agreement is between the Customer and the third party company and all issues relating to the redemption of the Promocode need to be addressed with the third party company. Instabeauty disclaims any liability in this regard.
When entering a Promocode the Customer will receive a message that it has been successfully entered. At Instabeauty’s discretion we may or may not provide any further information about a Promocode and we do not guarantee a Promocode may be applied to any particular Job.
As a Provider you will earn the full price of the Job as if the Promocode were not applied, minus Instabeauty’s commission.
Instabeauty Providers are assigned to Jobs on the basis of availability and location.
As a Customer you agree not to privately offer jobs to Providers you have previously engaged with through Instabeauty. As a Provider, while Instabeauty is acting as an agent for you, and for a minimum period of 6months after the agreement has been terminated, you agree not to accept or solicit for jobs that are offered to you by Customers you have been introduced to through Instabeauty. Instabeauty reserves the right to terminate the Accounts of Users who enter into private engagements.
If you engage with another User who you feel has acted in an inappropriate way towards you, including but not limited to offensive, violent or sexually inappropriate behaviour you should immediately make a report to the appropriate authorities and then to Instabeauty at email@example.com quoting the filing report number and location. Your report may cause us to investigate such behaviour but we are not obligated to take action beyond that which is required by law, and we will not incur any additional liability or expense.
