1. Service Connects Bumblebeemes and Tasksetters / Hive owners

The Service is a communications platform enabling the connection between individuals and/or businesses seeking to obtain task services ("TaskSetters") and/or individuals seeking to provide task services ("Bumblebeemes"). TaskSetters and Bumblebeemes together are henceforth referred to as "Users." Those certain task services requested by the TaskSetters, which are to be completed by the Bumblebeemes are hereinafter referred to as "Tasks."

2. Company Only Provides a Venue

The Service is a communications platform for enabling connections between Users, which may be through mobile application, website, phone, email or all known communication mediums. Company does not take part in the interaction between Users. Company does not have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any ratings provided by Users, Tasks provided by TaskSetters, nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Users. Company does not have control over the quality, timing or legality of Tasks delivered by its Bumblebeemes. Company makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the Tasks requested and provided by Users identified through the Service whether in public, private, or offline interactions. Although Company may perform background checks of Bumblebeemes, as outlined in more detail below, Company cannot confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Company does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information provided through the Service.

All Bumblebeeme applicants go through an extensive application and vetting process before they can join our community, including criminal background checks via a third party service. Bumblebeeme Ltd. adheres to UK Laws regarding the use of these background checks. When interacting with other Users you should exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety and property, just as you would when interacting with other persons whom you don't know. NEITHER COMPANY NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICE. COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE.

3. Transactions

Users of the Service contract for Tasks directly with other Users. Company will not be a party to any contracts for Tasks or services. Company facilitates these contracts by supplying a medium for the exchange of money. Payment will be processed at the end of a completed Task transaction. TaskSetters offer payments for each requested Task (such payment, a "TaskPayment"). When a Task is marked as closed by the TaskSetter, the agreed upon TaskPayment will be transferred to the Bumblebeeme's online account. When the Task is marked complete by the Bumblebeeme, which is an optional action, the TaskSetter will have three (3) days before the Task is automatically marked complete in the system database and the Bumblebeeme is paid the agreed upon TaskPayment. The TaskPayment must be paid through the Service. Any TaskPayments paid in cash outside of the Service are NOT subject to refunds. Any reimbursement expenses that are incurred by a Bumblebeeme in connection with the completion of a Task may, however, be paid in cash offline or through the Service.

If the TaskSetter opts into usage of Bumblebeems timesheeting functionality, Bumblebeemes will report the hours that they have worked for a two week period. The TaskSetter will be given one day to verify the hours worked, after which the Task or Job will be marked complete and the Bumblebeeme will be paid the agreed upon TaskPayment.

5. Billing and Payment Policy

For all purchases and payments for reimbursement costs, fees or expenses associated with a Task, unless you use your Gift Card as described in Section 5 below, Company will charge your credit card according to the amount agreed upon between you and Company for the use of the Service, and you hereby authorise us to charge your credit card for such amounts. Company retains the right, in its sole discretion, to place a hold on any payment for a completed Task transaction.

Company has no obligation to provide refunds or credits, but may grant them in extenuating circumstances, as a result of specific refund guarantee promotions, or to correct any errors made by Company, in each case in Company's sole discretion.

You will be liable for all transaction taxes on the services provided under this Agreement (other than taxes based on Company's income).

Company may use Sage Pay ("Sage Pay") for payment processing. In order for Bumblebeeme to use Sage Pay's payment processing services.

6. Payment Accounts

Each TaskSetter must properly discharge and credit its Bumblebeeme for all payments Company receives from such TaskSetter. Each User understands and agrees that:

The transmission of funds in the manner described herein is not a separate and discrete service that Company provides in addition to the Service. Rather, the transmission of funds in an auditable manner is an integral part of the Service that Company provides.

Each User's payment account is a custodial account administered by Company to facilitate disbursement of each TaskSetter's payment to each Bumblebeeme.

Company acts as agent of each User and not as a trustee or fiduciary with respect to payments received through Company.

Company holds funds delivered to it in a commingled account at a bank (each, a "Pooled Account"), and may include in the titling of a Pooled Account "Company, for the benefit of others" or similar words. Company maintains records at Company that should, in the event of a bank failure, allow the FDIC to determine which funds are payable to which Bumblebeemes.

Company will not voluntarily make your funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy.

You agree that Company has sole discretion over the establishment and maintenance of any Pooled Account. You agree that you will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds that Company handles as your agent and places in a Pooled Account. In consideration for your use of the Service, you irrevocably transfer and assign to Company any ownership right that you may have in any interest that may accrue on funds held in a Pooled Account. This assignment applies only to interest earned on your funds, and nothing in this Agreement grants Company any ownership right to the principal of the funds you maintain with Company. In addition to or instead of earning interest on Pooled Accounts, Company may receive a reduction in fees or expense charged for banking services by the banks that hold your funds.
