(g) This clause will survive the termination or expiry of these Terms.

Business Partners

We reserve the right to enter into contracts with third party business partners who use the services of Service Providers (Business Partners). In this regard, we may seek to engage Service Providers to provide services to that Business Partner to on-sell to third parties for an increased fee. (For example, we may contract with a retailer to provide 1 day of styling service that the retailer then on-sells in hourly slots for an increased fee).

Note that Business Partners may require the Service Provider to enter into a contract with them and where a Service Provider accepts a task from a Business Partner, the Service Partner agrees to provide the Service to the Business Partner in accordance with any contract between the Business Partner and Service Provider.

Termination

(a) You may cancel your Account and terminate these Terms at any time via the “Cancel Account” feature (or similar) on our Platform. If you cancel or deactivate your Account as a Service Provider, you must honour all Bookings made prior to your cancellation. If you do not honour any Bookings, your Customers will receive a full refund. If you cancel your Account as a customer, no refunds will be made upon cancellation if there is an outstanding Booking which is less than 48 hours ahead of the time at which you cancel your account.

(b) At our sole discretion, we may suspend your Account or terminate these Terms immediately if:

(i) you are in material breach of these Terms, any applicable laws, regulations or third party rights;

(ii) as a Service Provider your Listings or services at any time fail to meet any applicable quality or eligibility criteria, or

(iii) you have received poor Reviews or Ratings or we have received complaints about you including due to repeated cancellations of Bookings.

(c) If we suspend your Account or terminate these Terms, we will cancel any existing Bookings and in the case of a Service Provider breach, refund the relevant Customers, and in the case of a Customer breach, you will lose any amounts paid.

Disputes: We encourage Service Providers and Customers to attempt to resolve disputes (including claims for returns or refunds) with other users directly, using the Refund and Cancellation Rules in these Terms and Conditions as a guide.

In the event of any dispute arising from, or in connection with, these Terms (Dispute), the party claiming there is a Dispute must give written notice to the other party setting out the details of the Dispute and proposing a resolution. Within 7 days after receiving the notice, the parties must meet at least once to attempt to resolve the Dispute or agree on the method of resolving the Dispute by other means, in good faith.  All aspects of every such conference, except the fact of the occurrence of the conference, will be privileged. If the parties do not resolve the Dispute or (if the Dispute is not resolved) agree on an alternate method to resolve the Dispute, within 21 days after receipt of the notice, the Dispute may be referred by either party (by notice in writing to the other party) to litigation. Spree With Me will not be part of any Dispute or any litigation arising from a Dispute and will retain any service fees paid previously with respect to a disputed matter.

Insurance

We recommend that Service Providers obtain appropriate insurance for supplying their services. If you are a Service Provider and you obtain an insurance policy, please review any relevant insurance documentation carefully, and in particular make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy. For clarity, note that we are an introduction platform only and we do not enter into the agreements between Service Providers and Customers. To this end, Service Providers must obtain and rely upon their own insurance.

Bookings

More than one Customer: Some of the Listings on the Platform may state they are for individuals only, in which case you may not bring a friend to that Booking if the Listing specifically states it is for one. Group services may be offered in that case. In most other cases, a Customer may bring a friend to their Booking for the same price per hour. However, if you are seeking separate advice, we recommend you purchase additional time so that you may both benefit suitably by making the most of your time. Please also advise your Service Provider in advance, noting the ultimate agreement is between you and the Style Maven.

Time changes: Booking times cannot be changed unless both parties in writing, via the messaging function on our Platform, approve them. Note Customers may forfeit a portion of their allotted time if they are late to a Booking.

Transportation: For your safety we recommend Customers and Service Providers do not travel together in their respective private vehicles. If they do, we do not have any liability for any accident or similar that occurs. Our recommended mode of transport, if the parties must travel together, is a ride share or public transport. Service Providers should disclose any need to travel on the Spree listing and any ride share or public transport costs should be embedded in the total cost on the platform listing.

General

Variation: We may modify these Terms from time to time by posting the amended Terms on the Platform. By continuing to use the Platform after such modification or 30 days after notification (whichever date is earlier), you agree to the amended terms. If you do not agree to the modifications, you must terminate your Account and stop using the Platform. We suggest you check our website regularly to ensure you are aware of the current terms. We do not undertake to keep our website up to date and we are not liable if any content is inaccurate or out of date.

Assignment: You may not assign, transfer or delegate your rights and obligations under the Terms without our prior written consent. We may without restriction assign, transfer or delegate our rights and obligations under these Terms with 30 days prior notice.

Severance: The provisions of these Terms are severable and if any provision of these Terms is held to be void, invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision is severed from these Terms without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder of that provision or the other provisions in these Terms.

Jurisdiction: The laws of Queensland govern your use of our Platform and these Terms. You irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts operating in Queensland and any courts entitled to hear appeals from those courts and waive any right to object to proceedings being brought in those courts.

The Platform and our website may be accessed throughout Australia and overseas. We make no representation that our Platform complies with the laws (including intellectual property laws) of any country outside Australia. If you access our Platform from outside Australia, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for complying with the laws of the jurisdiction where you access the Platform and our website.
