Please refer carefully to these Terms before you start to use the Platform and the Services. We recommend that you print a copy of these Terms for future reference. By using the Platform and the Services, you will be deemed to have understood and accepted these Terms, which form a binding agreement between you and us.
OTHER APPLICABLE TERMS
CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
At any time, we may amend these Terms to ensure that we remain compliant with relevant laws and regulations and to ensure that we are constantly improving your experience using the Platform, the App (as defined below), and the Services.
Please check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we have made. By continuing to use the Platform, the App, and any of the Services after changes are made, you are accepting those changes and will be bound by them.
THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE
We offer various Services via the Platform, including those which allow you to:
· create a personal account on the Platform;
· use the marketplace to order, pay for and track the various car servicing, valeting, concierge, and other services provided via the App (the Concierge Services).
The list above is not an exhaustive list of the Services and we may decide to offer additional Services, or cease to provide any Services, at any time.
You do not have to register to the Platform, but access to certain of the Services (including the automated services) is only available to registered users. Registered users are referred to in these Terms as Members (and Membership will be construed accordingly).
To register, you will need to complete a simple registration process by providing certain information (including your name, email address, phone number, postcode, and car make and model) and choosing a username and password for use in connection with your Membership.
You agree that you will provide truthful and accurate information when registering for Membership. The decision to register a password is in our discretion and we may revoke your password at any time.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account information, and you are responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account and for any access to or use of the Platform, App, or the Services by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorised by you.
You must immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any other breach of security relating to the Platform. We will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever resulting from the disclosure of your username and/or password contrary to these Terms.
You are responsible for ensuring that the information we hold about you is up to date. Please amend your details as appropriate from time to time or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of any changes.
THE CONCIERGE SERVICES (INCLUDING HOW WE ACCESS YOUR VEHICLE)
When you have completed the registration process, we will assign you a unique customer number (Customer ID Number). The Customer ID Number can be used to track Concierge Services you have ordered, and as an identifier should any issues occur.
Concierge Services are provided on an on-demand basis. This means that you can decide the frequency and type of Concierge Services you receive, and you only pay for Concierge Services you have booked and received.
You do not need to be present when the Concierge Services are performed. If you have signed up for ‘external’ Concierge Services (i.e. services that do not need your car to be unlocked) then we will arrange for the relevant Concierge Service to be provided at the address indicated by you during the ordering process. If you have ordered Concierge Services which do require access to your car, then you will need to sign in to your manufacturer-specific connected car account on the App and approve Handl to unlock your car without the key in order to enable us to deliver the Concierge Services to you. Details of how to do this are all set out on the App itself.
You will be notified via SMS before the Concierge Services are to be performed, and after they have been completed. You may also use the website to change and/or cancel your Concierge Service request [up to  hours before it is due to take place].
Certain Concierge Services may only be available in certain geographical areas. When you request Concierge Services, you will only be able to select Concierge Services that are available in the area where your car is located.
THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS
We use a nationwide network of reputable third party service providers to provide the Concierge Services (Third Party Service Providers).
We remain responsible for the quality of the Concierge Services provided by the Third Party Service Providers. All issues regarding the provision of the Concierge Services should be raised with us by using the contact details provided below.
FEES AND PAYMENT
Access to the Concierge Services can be obtained by Members on payment of the relevant fees (the Concierge Fees). All Concierge Services are subject to an additional call-out fee (Call-Out Fee), which is payable with the Concierge Fees. If you book a number of Concierge Services to be provided at the same time, you will only be charged one Call-Out Fee.
Concierge Fees and Call-Out Fees are payable up-front (i.e. before you receive the relevant Concierge Service) and on an ‘on demand’ basis (i.e. you only pay for Concierge Services you have requested via the website).
Prices will appear on the relevant page(s) of the Platform and/or the App. Our Call-Out Fee is currently included but we may change the Call-Out Fee, or any other prices, at any time by posting new prices on the Platform and/or the App, but such changes will not affect any Concierge Services you have already booked and paid for. We will make it clear to you before you finalise a booking for Concierge Services what the total fees will be.
We accept the following cards for payment: Visa, American Express, Mastercard and Maestro. By paying using your credit or debit card you confirm that the card is yours. We also accept payment using PayPal, Apple Pay or Android Pay. You confirm that there are sufficient funds or credit available to cover the relevant Concierge Fees and Call-Out Fees.
YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have ordered, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
· if the Concierge Service you have ordered is misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the Concierge Service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back);

· there is a risk that supply of the Concierge Services may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control.
WHEN YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT CONCIERGE SERVICES YOU HAVE ORDERED
For Concierge Services you have ordered via the website, you can cancel up to 14 days after the day we notify you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the Concierge Services you cannot change your mind, even if the cancellation period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the Concierge Services, you must pay us for the Concierge Services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.

However, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Concierge Services for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied.

Your access to the Platform and/or any of the Services may be suspended or restricted occasionally to allow for maintenance, repairs, upgrades, or the introduction of new functions or services. We will try to limit the frequency and duration of any planned disruption but we will not be liable to you if for any reason the Platform and/or any of the Services is/are unavailable at any time or for any period.
UPDATES TO THE APP

WEBSITES WE LINK TO
The Platform may offer links to other websites from which third party services can be obtained and which we reasonably believe to be reputable sources of such services. However, you acknowledge that these other websites are independent from us and we make no representations or warranties as to the legitimacy, accuracy or quality of such third party services, and we do not accept any responsibility for their content, safety, practices or privacy policies.
We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that no part of the Platform or the App will contain or spread any viruses or other malicious code.

To the full extent permitted by law we exclude liability for damage or loss of any kind caused by viruses or other harmful components originating or contracted from the Platform.
OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.

However, we will not be liable for damage that you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an App update offered to you free of charge or for damage that was caused by you failing to correctly follow download, installation, or usage instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements and anti-virus software advised by us.

OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

If we do waive a breach by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later breach by you.
