  • 3. PAYMENT OF FEES
    If applicable, you agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account based on Hirely's fees, charges, and billing terms then in effect. If you do not pay on time or if Hirely cannot charge your credit card, PayPal or other payment method for any reason, Hirely reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your access to the Platform and account and terminate these Terms of Use. You are expressly agreeing that Hirely is permitted to bill you for the applicable fees, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of this Platform and the fees will be billed to your credit card, PayPal or other payment method designated at the time you make a purchase or register for a fee-based service. If you cancel your Account at any time, you will not receive any refund. If you have a balance due on any account, you agree that Hirely may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees.
  • 4. TAXES
    You understand that we are acting solely as an intermediary for the collection of rents and fees between a Service User and a Service Vendor who choose to enter into an Agreement for Service. Because local tax laws vary significantly by locality, you understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your own tax reporting requirements in consultation with tax advisers, and that we cannot and do not offer tax advice to either Service Vendors or Service Users.
  • 5. REFUND POLICY
    All sales on Hirely require a 40% deposit. The deposit, unless otherwise stated in the vendor’s T&Cs, is refundable up to 7 days before a scheduled event. Hirely reserves the right not to refund the 10% Hirely service fee. The remainder of the payment is transacted on the day of the event.

  • 2. NO AGENCY OR PARTNERSHIP
    No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of the Terms of Use or your use of any part of the Platform, including without limitation, the Negotiation Worksheet or Agreement for Service.

Neither Hirely nor any users of the Platform may direct or control the day-to-day activities of the other, or create or assume any obligation on behalf of the other.
  • 3. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN REGISTERED USERS
    Subject to the provisions regarding disputes between Platform participants in connection with Feedback, your interactions with individuals and/or organizations found on or through the Platform, including payment of and performance of any Service, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such transactions or dealings, are solely between you and such individual or organization. You should take reasonable precautions and make whatever investigation or inquiries you deem necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any third party, including without limitation, Service Vendors and Service Users.

    You understand that deciding whether to use the Services of a Service Vendor or provide Services to a Service User or use information contained in any Submitted Content, including, without limitation, Postings, Offers and/or Feedback, is your personal decision for which you alone are responsible. You understand that Hirely does not and cannot make representations as to the suitability of any individual you may decide to interact with on or through the Platform and/or the accuracy or suitability of any advice, information, or recommendations made by any individual. Hirely is not responsible for the interactions, transaction, or dealings between any Service Provider and Service User.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that Hirely shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort whatsoever incurred as the result of any such transaction or dealings. If there is a dispute between participants on the platform, or between registered users or any platform user and any third party, you acknowledge and agree that Hirely is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that a dispute arises between you and one or more platform users, registered users or any third party, you hereby release Hirely, its officers, managers, members, directors, employees, attorneys, agents, and successors in rights from any claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, foreseeable or unforeseeable, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or the platform or any service provided thereunder.
N. Dispute Resolution
If a dispute arises between you and Hirely, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and Hirely hereby agree that we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of the Terms of Use or the Platform in accordance with this Section O or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to the filing of a formal lawsuit, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution via email at hi@hirelyevents.com. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.
O. Governing law
The Terms of Use shall be governed in all respects by the laws of Hong Kong, without reference to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Hirely must be resolved by a court located in Hong Kong except as otherwise agreed by the parties. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Hong Kong for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
P. Advertisements
Aspects of the Platform and other Hirely services may be supported by advertising revenue. As such, Hirely may display advertisements and promotions on the service. The manner, mode and extent of advertising by Hirely on the Platform are subject to change and the appearance of advertisements on the Platform does not necessarily imply endorsement by Hirely of any advertised products or services.

Q. Third-party Links, Advertisements, Contact Forms and Phone Numbers
The Platform may provide, or third parties may provide, links, contact forms and/or phone numbers to other websites or resources, including, without limitation, social networking, blogging and similar websites through which you are able to log into the Platform using your existing account and log-in credentials for such third-party websites. Certain areas of the Platform may allow you to interact and/or conduct transactions with such third-party sites, and, if applicable, allow you to configure your privacy settings in your third-party site account to permit your activities on the Platform to be shared with your contacts in your third-party site account. Because Hirely has no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that Hirely is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, goods or services on or available from such websites or resources. Unless expressly stated on the Platform, links to third-party sites should in no way be considered as or interpreted to be Hirely's endorsement of such third-party sites or any product or service offered through them. The Third-party website may have different privacy policies and terms and conditions and business practices than Hirely. In certain situations, you may be transferred to a Third-party website through a link or connected to a Third-party resource by a contact form or phone but it may appear that you are still on this Platform or transacting with Hirely. In these situations, you acknowledge and agree that the Third- party website terms and conditions and privacy policy apply in this situation. Your dealings and communications through the Platform with any party other than Hirely are solely between you and such third party. Any complaints, concerns or questions you have relating to materials provided by third parties should be forwarded directly to the applicable third party. Hirely takes no responsibility for advertisements or any third party material posted on the Platform or offered in connection with the Services, nor do we take any responsibility for the products or services provided by advertisers. Any dealings you have with advertisers found while using the Platform are between you and the advertiser, and you agree that Hirely is not liable for any loss or claim that you may have against an advertiser.
