3. Service connects service providers and companies
The Service is a communications platform for enabling the connection between individuals and/or businesses seeking to obtain task services (“Companies”) and/or individuals seeking to provide short term task services ("Service providers"). Companies and Service providers together are hereinafter referred to as "Users." Those certain task services requested by the Companies, which are to be completed by the Service providers, are hereinafter referred to as "Projects."
The Service is a communications platform goworkabit.com for enabling connections between Users.
The webpage can be used to enter Projects (with information such as time, location, the number of people required and any additional information). Service providers on the GWB database that have requested information about available Projects shall receive an e-mail about new Projects. Service providers can then choose Projects they prefer and express their readiness for participation. The Service providers who wish to offer their services for a Project are presented to the Company which can then choose the best Service providers. Chosen Service providers shall receive a conformation via e-mail which also contains additional information, provided by the Company, about the Project.
Before commencing the Service, the Company agrees to introduce Service provider with safe working environment.
After the Project has been completed and the final duration of the Project has been confirmed by both the Company and the Service provider, then GWB shall issue an invoice to the Company via e-mail.
The Company is obligated to confirm the duration of the Project within 3 working days after the Project has ended. In the event of a Company’s failure to confirm the Project duration within 3 working days, the Project duration shall be deemed to be the same as stated initially on the Service. Any change to the Project duration requires the Service provider’s consent. Otherwise the Project duration shall remain unchanged.
If the Company submits a Project but does not choose the Service providers or take any additional actions and does not cancel the Project, then GWB has the right to invoice the Company according to the initial Project posted on the Service. The Company is obligated to pay within 14 days after it has been invoiced.
If the Company submits a Project but does not choose the Service providers (for reasons such as cancellation of the project or for finding another suitable service to help complete their project) and does not notify GWB at least 24 hours beforehand then GWB has the right to invoice the Company with 25 € with the description: “Negligence leads to sad candidates”.
It is the obligation of GWB to pay remuneration of the Service provided to the Service provider. The remuneration is paid by bank transfer.
