TIDY is a communications platform for enabling the connection between individuals seeking to obtain services ("TIDY Service Requesters") and/or individuals seeking to provide services ("TIDY Service Professionals"). TIDY Service Requesters and TIDY Service Professionals together are hereinafter referred to as "Users." Those certain services requested by the TIDY Service Requesters, which are to be completed by the TIDY Service Professionals are hereinafter referred to as "Services."
Collection of your Personal Information
TIDY is a communications platform for enabling connections between Users. TIDY does not take part in the interaction between Users. TIDY does not have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any Services provided by TIDY Service Requesters, nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Users. TIDY does not have control over the quality, timing or legality of Services delivered by its TIDY Service Professionals. TIDY makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the Services requested and provided by Users identified through the Service whether in public, private, or offline interactions.
Although TIDY does perform background checks of TIDY Service Professionals, TIDY cannot confirm that each User is who they claim to be. TIDY does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information on the Service. Background checks are completed by one or more third party background check services. However, each Requester should exercise caution and common sense to protect its personal safety and property, just as you would when interacting with any person whom you do not know.
BY USING THE TIDY PLATFORM, THE REQUESTER AGREES TO HOLD TIDY FREE FROM THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LIABILITY OR DAMAGE THAT MIGHT ARISE OUT OF THE PROFESSIONAL SERVICES. TIDY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER INCLUDING PROFESSIONALS, AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, EXCEPT AS OUTLINED IN OUR DAMAGE CLAIM POLICY.

TIDY expressly disclaims any liability that may arise between Users of its Service.

Billing and Payment Policy
TIDY Service Requesters are obligated to pay for the services of the Service, unless specifically notified otherwise. TIDY requires Service Requesters to have sufficient credit on their account in advance of any booking or appointment. For all purchases and payments for reimbursement costs, fees or expenses associated with a Service, TIDY will charge your credit card according to the amount agreed upon between you and TIDY for the use of the services of the Service, and you hereby authorize us to charge your credit card for such amounts. TIDY retains the right, in its sole discretion, to place a hold on any payment for a completed Service transaction.

No refunds or credits will be provided once the TIDY Service Requester's credit card has been charged. At TIDY's sole discretion, refunds or credits may be granted in extenuating circumstances, as a result of specific refund guarantee promotions, to refund back refundable credit on your account, or to correct any errors made by TIDY.
While TIDY will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of all credit card and all other personal information, we expressly disclaim any liability for any damage that may result should any information be released to any third parties, and you agree to hold TIDY harmless for any damages that may result therefrom.

Informal Negotiations. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement ("Dispute"), you and TIDY agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding.

TIDY's address for such notices is TIDY, 1835 Newport Blvd. A109 - PMB 155 Costa Mesa, CA 92627. ATTENTION: Legal Department
Binding Arbitration. If you and TIDY are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, either you or TIDY may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF EITHER PARTY ELECTS TO ARBITRATE, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules). If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, TIDY will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. The governing law shall be the State of California, and arbitration shall be held in the County of Orange.
Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and TIDY may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Exceptions to Alternative Dispute Resolution. You and TIDY agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or TIDY's intellectual property rights; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief.
Restrictions. You and TIDY agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between TIDY and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration will be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
Location. Arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you.
Severability. You and TIDY agree that if any portion of this section entitled "Dispute Resolution and Governing Law" is found illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be severed and the remainder of the section will be given full force and effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the subsection entitled "Exceptions to Alternative Dispute Resolution" is found to be illegal or unenforceable, neither you nor TIDY will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of that subsection that is found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and you and TIDY agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
TIDY may from time to time provide certain promotional opportunities to TIDY Service Requesters All promotions will be run at the sole discretion of TIDY, Inc., and can be activated, modified or removed at anytime by TIDY without advance notification.
In the event that you are given a code by or on behalf of TIDY through which you may refer a friend to TIDY in exchange for a referral credit, you shall not use any online marketing or advertising to promote such code or to artificially increase the amount of credits awarded. By way of example, you may not post, or cause, request or permit a third party to post any such code on a coupon website, nor use any paid search marketing, online advertising, forum posting, newsgroup posting or bulk email to disseminate such code. You may only share such code with your personal friends and acquaintances for legitimate referral purposes, as determined by TIDY in its sole discretion. Without limiting TIDY's other rights and remedies, TIDY may terminate such code and/or your account for any breach of this Section.
No independent contractor, agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
Failure by TIDY to enforce any provision(s) of this User Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and TIDY with respect to its subject matter. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will be enforced to the fullest extent possible, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of TIDY, its successors and assigns.
