Reporting Intellectual Property Infringements (Verified Rights Owners – VeRO). Do not post content that infringes the rights of third parties. This includes, but is not limited to, content that infringes on intellectual property rights such as copyright and trademark (e.g. offering counterfeit items for sale). We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms, our policies or of any party’s rights. The following steps are for reporting a listing to Contractor2help that you believe to be infringing on your intellectual property rights. Only the intellectual property rights owner can report of potentially infringing items or listings through Contractor2help’s VeRO Program. If you have a good faith belief that a listing on any of the Contractor2help Services infringes your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, all you need to do is contact us at contractor2help@gmail.com. After we receive your claim, Contractor2help will confirm your enrolment in our program and send you the instructions on how to submit future reports electronically. We reserve the right to share, in accordance with applicable law, the completed claim with the third party that originally posted the potentially infringing listing.

Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability. The Contractor2help Services are provided “as is” and “as available”. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users post or do. You also agree not to hold us responsible for the payment processing of other service providers such as PayPal (each a “Third Party Payment Processor”. For greater certainty, as applicable, if you link a Third-Party Payment Processor account to your Contractor2help Account, you acknowledge and agree that by making payments through Contractor2help with that Third-Party Payment Processor, you are bound by that Third-Party Payment Processor’s applicable terms and conditions, and we are not liable for any loss, claims or damages howsoever arising about that third party’s services). As most of the stuff on the Contractor2help Services comes from other users, we do not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, efficacy or timeliness of any postings or user communications or the quality, safety, or legality of what is offered. We also cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our Services. Notification functionality in our Services may not occur in real time. Such functionality is subject to delays beyond our control, including without limitation, delays or latency due to your physical location or your wireless data service provider’s network.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Despite the previous paragraph, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or any third party (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability in tort, by statute or otherwise) is limited to the greater of (a) the total fees you pay to us in the 1 month prior to the action giving rise to liability, and (b) 1 Canadian Dollar.

We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, but doing so will not excuse your indemnity obligations.
