We are not responsible for the content of any linked website and cannot take responsibility for the consequences of your using the information or services on linked websites. We cannot guarantee that these links will work all of the time.
Our website does not endorse or favour any specific commercial product or business. A link to a third-party website does not imply endorsement; you must use your own judgement to decide whether the information or service on that website is suitable for your needs. If a website is not linked to ours, this does not mean or imply that it is unsatisfactory. The linked websites are regularly reviewed in the light of customer usage and feedback.

Online services, transactions and payments
When using this website you may access or follow links to a number of online services or transactions.

You may see references of PayPal in many parts of this website. We use PayPal as our online payment partner. So if you provide any service and intend to collect payments online you can choose the payment type as PayPal while publishing your skill or service. When a booking is confirmed we will collect the payment directly from the customer and will release it to you after 48 hours of the completion of the job. This is to allow the customers to be able to cancel any payments if they are not satisfied with your service. Please note that a payment processing fee of 10% of the total amount will be deducted before transferring it to your PayPal account. There will not be any such fees if you provide your services ‘free of charge’ or as ‘cash on completion’. Also customers will not be charged for making any bookings regardless of the payment type.
