ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS
All references to "you" or "your," as applicable, mean the person who accesses, uses, and/or participates in the Platform in any manner, and each of your heirs, assigns, and successors. If you use the Platform on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity, your acceptance of the Terms will be deemed an acceptance by that entity, and "you" and "your" herein shall refer to that entity.
ELIGIBILITY, SERVICE MEMBER REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, AND USE OF THE PLATFORM
Access to and use of the Platform is available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old and can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. By accessing or using the Platform, you represent and warrant that you are eligible.
By registering or using the Platform to offer, post or provide Pro Services, Service Members represent and warrant that they, and the employees, agents, contractors, and subcontractors who may perform work for them, are properly and fully qualified and experienced, and licensed, certified, bonded, and insured, as required by applicable laws or regulations to which they may be subject in the jurisdiction(s) in which they offer their Pro Services and in relation to the specific job they are performing.
Woohands is not in the business of providing Pro Services. Service Members understand and agree that by creating and maintaining an account on the Platform, they receive only the ability to use the Woohands Platform to access persons interested in receiving Pro Services and related tools, including but not limited to the ability to message Customer Members or schedule appointments, that facilitate the provision of Pro Services. Service Members understand and agree that using the Platform does not guarantee that any Woohands users will engage them for Pro Services.
Service Members understand and agree that they are customers of Woohands, and are not Woohands employees, joint venturers, partners, or agents. Service Members acknowledge that they set or confirm their own prices, provide their own equipment, and determine their own work schedule. Woohands does not control, and has no right to control, the services a Service Member provides (including how the Service Member provides such services) if the Service Member is engaged by a Customer Member, except as specifically noted herein.
Woohands, as permitted by applicable laws, obtains reports based on publicly available information regarding Service Members, which may include history of criminal convictions or sex offender registration, and we may limit, block, suspend, deactivate, or cancel a Service Member’s account based on the results of such a check. As a Service Member, you agree and authorize us to use your personal information, such as your full name and date of birth, to obtain such reports from Woohands’s vendors.

You may register for an Account using your existing Facebook account and log-in credentials (your "Third-Party Site Password"). You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration or request submission process and at all other times when you use the Platform, and to update information to keep it accurate, current, and complete. You are solely responsible for safeguarding your Woohands password and, if applicable, your Third-Party Site Password. You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs on your Account, and you will notify Woohands immediately of any unauthorized use.
