The Katabang Platform is solely a venue for communications enabling the connection between the users who wish to request for Services ("Customers") and/or individuals seeking to provide services ("Service Providers"). Customers and Service Providers together are referred to as "Users". Those certain services requested by the Customers, which are to be performed and completed by the Service Providers, are hereinafter referred to as "Services" (which may include professional services, household services or domestic services). Katabang DOES NOT itself provide any of these Services. The performance and provision of such Services is up to the Service Providers, and those Services may be scheduled through the use of the Katabang Platform. Katabang, through the Katabang Platform, offers information and a method to obtain such Services, but does not and does not intend to provide such Services itself or act in any way as a cleaning, handyman, plumber, babysitter, oldsitter, or other household related service provider, and has no responsibility or liability for any Services provided to the Customer by Service Providers, including but not limited to, a warranty or condition of good and workmanlike services, warranty of fitness for a particular purpose or compliance with any law, regulation, or code.
Katabang checks the backgrounds of Service Providers via a third party background check services provider. However, each Customer should exercise due 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 the using the Katabang Platform, the Customer agrees to hold Katabang free from the responsibility for any liability of damage that might arise out of the Services. Katabang is not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any user including Service Providers, and will not be liable for any claim, injury or damage arising in connection with any of the Services.

b. Account, Password and Security. You are the sole authorized user of your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any username, password and account provided by you or us for accessing the Katabang Platform. You are solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account except that Katabang may, in certain circumstances, access your account to make changes that you request, such as rescheduling a Service appointment. Katabang has no control over the use of any User's account (Customer's account or Service Provider's account) by the User or third parties and expressly disclaims any liability derived therefrom. Should you suspect any other breach of security, you must contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nothing in this section shall affect Katabang's right to limit or terminate the use of the Katabang Platform, as provided below (and in this Agreement).
c. Proof of Identity. You will provide us with such proof of identity as we may reasonably request from time to time.
d. Text Messages and Phone Calls. By providing your telephone number (including mobile phone number) and using the Katabang Platform, we may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, use your mobile phone number for calls and, if such phone number is a mobile number, for text (also known as SMS) messages, in order to assist with facilitating the requested Service. Standard call of message charges or other charges from your phone carrier may apply to calls or text (SMS) messages we send you.
e. Emails. Katabang may send you confirmation and other transactional emails regarding the Service. Handy may also send you emails about services that we think might interest you ("Promotional Emails"). You can unsubscribe from Promotional Emails at any time by clicking unsubscribe in our email communications or contacting us.
a. Payments. Users of the Katabang Platform contract for Services directly with other users or Service Providers. Katabang is not a party to any contracts for Services. The Katabang Platform facilitates these contracts by supplying a medium through which Customers can connect with Service Providers, schedule Services, and make payments for these Services ("Payments"). Customers are obligated to pay in advance for the Services they order through the Katabang Platform. We will charge the Customer's credit card, GCash account, PayPal account , DragonPay account or any other payment gateway accounts the Customer has selected to complete payment, according to the amount the Customer has agreed to on the Katabang Platform, with respect to all Services, the Customer has ordered, and for all purchases and payments for reimbursement costs, fees or expenses associated with a Service, and the Customer hereby authorizes us to charge the credit card, GCash account, PayPal account, DragonPay account or any other payment gateway accounts the Customer has selected to complete payment, which is on file in the Customer's Katabang Platform account for such amounts. We will use third party services to facilitate payment to be done through some payment gateways. We retain the right in our sole discretion, to place a hold on the Customer's credit card or any payment gateway account for an ordered or completed Service transaction. Seventy-two (72) hours after a Service has been rendered, if there is no complaint by the Customer, we will mark the Service as closed.
If the Customer has agreed with the Service Provider to reduce the number of hours, no Payment in part or whole will be reimbursed. It is the responsibility of the Customer to inform Katabang of the reduced number of hours while Service is in progress, and for Katabang to inform the Service Provider. This prevents miscommunication between the transacting parties (Customer and Service Provider).
If the Customer has agreed with the Service Provider to extend the number of hours, provided that there is no conflicting Service schedule that will be affected, the Customer need to communicate with Katabang and a pro-rated fee will be charged in addition to original Payment made on the Katabang Platform.
Both the Customer and the Service Provider may communicate with Katabang through the Katabang Platform or by emailing email@example.com.
All Payments made by Customers must be made through the Katabang Platform. Any Payments paid outside of the Katabang Platform are not subject to any claims (promotional or otherwise), and Katabang will not be held responsible nor can be constrained to credit the said Payment (to both Customers --- as payment, and to Service Providers --- as creditable income), until such time that it is duly accepted and received by a Katabang personnel.
Where the Customer may opt to use a credit card to settle Payments, Katabang does not handle your credit card information directly. Even so, we will use any commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of all credit card, payment account information, and all other personal information. We also expressly disclaim any liability for any damage that may result should any information be released to and through any third parties, and you agree to hold us harmless for any damages that may result therefrom. Customers will be liable for all transaction taxes on the Services provided (such as VAT if any, other than taxes based on Katabang's income).
b. Service Rate. The rate per hour or per transaction for a Service ("Service Rate") depends on factors such as location and how frequently a Recurrent Service is ordered. Therefore, the same Service may cost more (or less) in a different location or in the Service Provider is ordered less frequently.
c. Recurrent Service. When requesting a Service, Customers may have the option of choosing that the Service be repeated on a regular basis ("Recurrent Service"). For example, a Customer may choose that a cleaning be performed every two weeks. When a Customer chooses a Recurrent Service, Katabang will automatically schedule that Recurrent Service to occur on future dates indefinitely at the frequency requested by the Customer. The Customer's credit card or payment gateway accounts will be charged for the Recurrent Service as the Service appointments occur and for any applicable cancellation fees. Katabang cannot guarantee that the same Service Provider will be scheduled for each Recurrent Service appointment or that Recurrent Service appointments will not be cancelled.
d. ? Claims and Limited Liability Insurance. Katabang imputes a minimal insurance premium to every transaction Payment. Any claims, liability, damage, injury, or any other cost arising from or in connection with the Service or the process of rendering the Service shall be limited to the maximum coverage of this transactional insurance coverage. This insurance is applicable to both parties of the transaction, the Customers and the Service Providers.

d. Policy for Service Cancelation by the Customer. Katabang's policy for specific Services is as follows: Customers may cancel their scheduled Service appointments through the Katabang Platform at any time, subject to the following. If a Customer cancels more than 24 hours before a scheduled Service appointment, there is no cancelation fee. If a Customer cancels between 2-24 hours before a scheduled Service appointment, the Customer will be charged a $5 (or its local currency equivalent according to Katabang's rounded off exchange rate) cancelation fee.
