4.2. We, eMop, do not offer the cleaning service itself. We are merely a third-party facilitator of the contracts between the customer and the eMopper. Accordingly, eMop can receive and confirm customer’s requests for cleaning services, issue invoices on behalf of the eMopper and pass on payments to the eMopper.
5.1. When you make a booking on the eMop Platform, you will create two legal contracts. The first contract being with us, and the second contract being with the eMopper for the provision of the service.
5.2. In the contract with us, we have certain responsibilities to you in relation to booking and payment process as well as our standards maintenance and use of the website in accordance with the provisions of these Booking Terms and Conditions, including governing access.
5.3. We are also responsible for taking your bookings and making it available for eMoppers, and for dealing with payments made by you in relation to those bookings. This contractual agreement is made on these Booking Terms and Conditions.
5.4. The contract between you and the eMopper (“Cleaning Agreement”) sets out the provisions of the service you book via the eMop platform. The service you book is the responsibility of the eMopper who provides it. We act as booking agent for eMoppers; therefore, we are not responsible or liable for the actual service that is booked through the eMop platform.
5.5. We only operate in the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept requests from outside the UK.
5.6. Customers must be at least 18 (eighteen) years of age to use the eMop platform.
6.1. The eMop platform allows you, the Customer, to book and pay for cleaning services undertaken by eMoppers. The service is provided by our eMoppers, and not by us.
6.2. The service shown on the eMop platform is subject to availability and the images on the eMop platform are for illustrative purposes only. We ask our eMoppers to ensure that they provide the service in accordance with the description on our platform. It is each eMopper’s responsibility to ensure that he or she provides the service not only in accordance with the description, but also in accordance with our standards and materials provided during the eMoppers enrolment.
7.1. We may ask you to provide a valid proof of identity in a form reasonably acceptable to us upon request.
7.2. You may make a booking only under your name. If you make a booking under another person’s name, this person is responsible for contacting eMop regarding the service booked and all possible issues.
7.3. Once registered on the eMop platform, you can select the service you require, the location, and the time. When you enter these details we will notify you of the estimated cost and the estimated time required to carryout the service. If you would like to go ahead, you may then submit the Order (“Order”) to confirm your request.
7.4. When you submit your Order for Service, we will send you an email acknowledging receipt of that service (“Order Confirmation”). Please note that the service is only confirmed when you receive the Order Confirmation. The contract between you and the eMopper will be formed only when you receive the Order Confirmation.
7.5. You must treat an eMopper courteously and lawfully and ensure that the location in which he/she provides the service is safe, and that an appropriate working environment is supplied for the eMopper, in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
7.6. We strongly advise that you exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety and property, as you would when interacting with any person whom you do not know. Whilst we have undertaken a Basic Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS), an identity check based on identifying documents, and a check for adverse financial history such as bankruptcy, it is your responsibility to keep yourself safe by having all personal or sentimental possessions locked away.
8.1. The price of the services on the eMop platform may be subject to change from time to time, and we will endeavour to ensure that our website prices are accurately updated accordingly.
8.2. Prices are based on the specified hourly rate, which depends on factors such as booking date and time.
8.3. Prices include VAT where applicable, unless it is stated otherwise on the relevant page in relation to the service on the eMop platform.
8.4. Any currency conversion costs, or other charges incurred in making a payment will be borne by you in addition to the price due to us.
Our Payment Provider – Stripe
8.5. We use ‘Stripe’ as our payment processing partner. By placing a booking on our website, you authorise eMop. Ltd, through Stripe, to send instructions to the financial institution that issued your card to take payments from your card account in accordance with the Booking Terms and Conditions.
8.6. eMop reserves the rights to decline your payment method in case of insufficient funds on your card or suspicions of fraud or for any other reason.
8.7. eMop holds the estimated amount on your card after the booking has been placed so as to ensure payment will be provided after the service is completed.
8.8. Payment for the service will be made after your cleaning has been completed, and you will be charged based on the actual time an eMopper spent in your premises, cleaning. The amount payable will be rounded up to the next minute and will be based on the rate shown to you on the website when you made your booking. You will be responsible for protecting the confidentiality of your username and any password or other security information used by you to access this payment facility and/or the eMop platform.
8.9. We take reasonable care to provide a functioning payment facility at all times, but cannot guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to such payment facility, nor can we guarantee that the facility is virus or error free. We also try to ensure that your payments are processed promptly, but it is often difficult to predict the amount of time needed to complete processing because it is dependent on many factors outside our control, such as delays in the banking system or in card networks. Access to our payment facility may be occasionally restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will attempt to provide reasonable notice of any scheduled interruptions and will do what we can to restore the facility as soon as reasonably possible.
8.10. By accepting these Booking Terms and Conditions:
8.10.1. In accordance with the Strong Customer Authentication Regulation (SCA), you are giving eMop, via Stripe, permission to charge your on-file credit card, debit card, or other approved methods of payment for fees that you owe eMop.
