Nature of the Petsfolio Service:
The Petsfolio Service consists of a desktop Web application, mobile applications, and other related tools, support and services that Service Users (“Service Users”) and providers of pet-related services (“Service Providers”) can use to find, communicate with and interact with each other. The Petsfolio Service includes our emergency support services, educational materials for Service Providers, and other services. We charge fees for some aspects of the Petsfolio Service, as described below.
Role of Petsfolio:
Petsfolio is a neutral venue for Service Providers and Service Users. Petsfolio is NOT a Service Provider and, except for emergency phone support and other resources and support specifically described in the Petsfolio Service, does not provide pet care services. We make no representations or warranties about the quality of boarding, pet sitting, dog walking, house sitting, or other services provided by Service Providers (“Pet Care Services”), or about your interactions and dealings with users. Service Providers listed on Petsfolio are not under the direction or control of Petsfolio, and Service Providers determine in their own discretion how to provide Pet Care Services. Though we provide general guidance on our Site to Service Providers about safety and pet care and to Service Users about selecting and engaging Service Providers, Petsfolio does not employ, recommend or endorse Service Providers or Service Users, and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we will not be responsible or liable for the performance or conduct of Service Providers or Service Users, whether online or offline. We conduct an initial review of Service Provider profiles and we facilitate Background Checks or Identification Verification on Service Providers conducted by a third party, but, except where explicitly specified in the Petsfolio Service (and then only to the extent specified), do not otherwise screen Service Providers or Service Users. You should exercise caution and use your independent judgment before engaging a Service Provider, providing Pet Care Services, or otherwise interacting with users via the Petsfolio Service. Service Users and Service Providers are solely responsible for making decisions that are in the best interests of themselves and their pets. For example, each user of the Petsfolio Service is responsible for keeping current his or her own pet’s vaccinations, and we will have no liability for anyone’s failure to vaccinate his or her pet. Similarly, Petsfolio does not endorse reviews of Service Providers by other Service Users that may be available via the Petsfolio Service, and Petsfolio makes no commitments that such reviews are accurate or legitimate.
Release & non liability:
Petsfolio has no liability for any claims, injuries, loss, harm and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to your interactions or dealings with other users and the acts and/or omissions of Service Providers and Service Users, whether online or offline. You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by the applicable law, YOUR USE AND/OR PROVISION OF PET CARE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE RISK.
Transactions are between Service Users and Service Providers:
The Petsfolio Service may be used to find and offer Pet Care Services and to facilitate payment, but all transactions conducted via the Petsfolio Service are between Service Users and Service Providers. You agree that Petsfolio has no liability for damages associated with Pet Care Services (which may include bodily injury to, or death of, a pet) or resulting from any other transactions between users of the Petsfolio Service.
Service Users and Service Providers transact with each other on the Petsfolio Service when they both agree to a “booking” that specifies the fees, time period, cancellation policy, and other terms for provision of Pet Care Services via the booking mechanism provided on the Petsfolio Service (a “Booking”). A Booking may be initiated by either a Service Provider or a Service User by selecting the type(s) of Pet Care Services to be provided and then following the prompts that appear on-screen. If you are a Service User and you initiate a Booking, you agree to pay for the Pet Care Services described in the Booking when you click “Request & Pay.” If you are a Service User and a Service Provider initiates a Booking, you agree to pay for the Pet Care Services described in the Booking when you click “Pay Now.” All requests are subject to acceptance by the receiving party. The receiving party is not obligated to accept your (or any) request and may, at their discretion, decline for any reason. You acknowledge that, once you complete a Booking, you agree to honor the price and other terms of that Booking, as acknowledged in the Booking confirmation.
Petsfolio reserves the right to change these Terms at any time, including to vary, remove, or introduce Fees. Before changing these terms, Petsfolio will try to give Users notice of such change by way of update before they take effect, although this may not always be possible. Please check our Platform regularly for updates. Such modifications will be effective immediately upon posting (or if a date is specified in the notice, that date). Any changes to Terms will not have retrospective effect and will only impact upon bookings made after the time of the change. Continued access or use of the Platform shall be deemed conclusive evidence of Your acceptance of the modified Terms.
By accessing and using the Petsfolio Service, you certify that you: (1) are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in your jurisdiction, whichever is higher, and (2) will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to your activities conducted through, or related to, the Petsfolio Service.
For Service Users, this means, among other things, that you will ensure that your pets are vaccinated, licensed, identification-tagged and/or micro-chipped as required by local laws or regulations; that you have obtained and will maintain any mandatory insurance policies concerning the pets whose care you entrust to Service Providers (and that such policies will benefit third parties, including Service Providers, to the same extent they benefit you).
For Service Providers, this means, among other things, that you certify that you are legally eligible to provide Pet Care Services in the jurisdiction where you provide Pet Care Services; that you have complied and will comply with all laws and regulations that are applicable to you; that you have obtained all business licenses, business tax registrations, and permits necessary to legally provide Pet Care Services; and that, when providing Pet Care Services, you will comply with applicable leash, pet waste disposal, and similar laws. You are also solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable income tax laws and regulations that apply to Your activity on the Platform. This includes the payment of income tax on any amounts collected for Pet Services provided. Without limiting the preceding paragraph, it is Your sole responsibility and obligation to comply with any applicable laws relating to the Pet Services, including without limitation with respect to the boarding of animals and the keeping of animals at private residences, including any applicable state and central animal welfare bodies and the local regulations and by-laws.
You acknowledge that Petsfolio is entitled to rely on these certifications from you, is not responsible to ensure that all users have complied with applicable laws and regulations, and will not be liable for a user’s failure to do so.
EACH USER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING ALL PERMITS, LICENCES AND OTHER PERMISSIONS REQUIRED TO OFFER OR PROVIDE ANY PET SERVICES. PETSFOLIO ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR A SERVICE PROVIDER’S FAILURE TO OBTAIN SUCH PERMITS, LICENCES OR PERMISSIONS OR OTHERWISE COMPLY WITH ANY APPLICABLE LAWS, RULES OR REGULATIONS.
You acknowledge and agree that nothing in these Terms or Your use of the Platform, Our Services or the Pet Services creates a relationship of principal and agent, employer and employee, partnership or joint venture between Petsfolio and any User, and that You must not represent to any person that You are authorized to exercise any responsibilities for or on behalf of Petsfolio.
Petsfolio is not an employment service and does not serve as an employer of any user, nor is Petsfolio in the position to provide any income tax related advice. As such, Users are solely responsible for any income tax, withholding or reporting, including, but not limited to, unemployment insurance, social security or payroll withholding tax or income reporting in connection with any Pet Services provided by the Service Providers.
You understand and agree that if Petsfolio is found to be liable for any tax, withholding tax or reporting obligation in connection with any Pet Services provided or received by You, then You will immediately reimburse and indemnify Petsfolio for all costs, expenses and liabilities (including any interest and penalties) relating to the same.
The Platform can be used to book Pet Services provided by Service Providers. These Pet Services are shown on the Listings on the Platform. Service Users may be required to provide personal information, including without limitation about their house address, phone number, email ID and the details of their Pet such as name, age, breed etc. Each Service Provider can set the details and prices for the Pet Services only in accordance with the parameters allowed by the Platform. It is not possible to view Listings as an unregistered visitor to the Platform. If You want to book Pet Services provided by the Platform or set up a Listing for Yourself, You need to create an Account.
Each Service Provider must provide the Pet Services in accordance with the relevant Booking, and each Service User must pay the Booking Fee and the Pet Service Fee pursuant to that Booking via the Payment Gateway.
Petsfolio connects Service Users and Service Providers and provides the Payment Gateway as set out in these Terms. However, Petsfolio plays no role in the agreements between Service Users and Service Providers with regards to the provision of Pet Services. Service Providers and Service Users are solely responsible for such agreements.
The Service User is obliged to pay the Pet Service Fee and/or Booking Fee applicable to a Booking using the Payment Gateway at the time both the Service User and the Service Provider have agreed on the Booking made through the Platform. The Pet Service Fee paid by the relevant Service User will be retained by Petsfolio until the completion date (or an extended period if there is a dispute, fraud/unauthorized transaction) of the relevant Booking in accordance with these Terms. Subject to the Withholding Period, Petsfolio will transfer the relevant Pet Service Fee, less Our Service Commission, to the Service Provider’s nominated bank account, after the Service Provider has submitted a withdrawal request for the payment.
Each Service Provider acknowledges that, notwithstanding that the relevant Withholding Period for a Booking may have ended, a Service User may be legally entitled to a refund or other remedy with respect to the Pet Services under any applicable law. To the maximum extent allowed at law, each Service Provider indemnifies Petsfolio with respect to any and all costs or expenses incurred by Petsfolio with respect to such a claim made by a Service User with respect to Pet Services performed by that Service Provider, whether before or after the Withholding Period applicable to the relevant Booking.
In consideration of each User enjoying our Services:
Warning: You acknowledge that any breach by You of this section would cause harm and damage to Petsfolio, and in the event of breach Petsfolio reserves the right to suspend or terminate Your access to the Platform and/or Our Services. You acknowledge that the covenants contained in this section are fair and reasonable.
In exchange for certain of Services, Service Users must pay the Service Fee as contemplated by these Terms. Registering on the Platform is absolutely free. To register as a Service User or Service Provider, Users must complete the registration process in the manner described on the Platform.
If You are a Service User, You must pay Service Fee with respect to each Booking made with Service Providers. The Service Fee is a fixed amount, solely decided by the Service Provider, specified in the relevant Booking. The Service Fee is inclusive of 5% GST.
Petsfolio’s Service Commission is deducted from the Pet Service Fee which is payable to a Service Provider in accordance with these Terms. The Service Commission is fixed at 10% with inclusive of 5% GST. It covers the costs of publicizing the Service Provider’s profiles, payment processing, platform maintenance and customer support provided by Petsfolio.
Any changes to any of our Fees are effective once they are posted on the Platform (unless a specific effective date has been specified). Unless otherwise stated in the relevant Booking, all Fees are quoted and payable in Indian Rupees. Each User accepts the responsibility to pay the amounts payable with respect to such Fees and applicable taxes in a timely manner by means of a valid payment method that Petsfolio accepts.
Using milestone payments, a Service User can break down a whole service into stages, and offering a single payment for a specific deliverable or milestone as a part of a whole service. It’s important to clearly define what each of the milestones of a service are.
Cancellations by Service Provider:
If a Service Provider cancels a Booking prior to or during the service period identified in the Booking, we will refund the fees (after deducting the transaction fee) paid by the Service User for Pet Care Services not provided, as well as any service charge paid to Petsfolio. The Service Provider can appoint a substitute Service Provider (as agreed by the Service User and so long as the substitute has an active account on the Petsfolio Service and has agreed in writing to accept a Booking) by contacting Petsfolio to modify the Booking.
Cancellations by Service Providers are taken very seriously. Petsfolio will review each Service Provider’s cancellation on a case-by-case basis and Petsfolio reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Service Provider’s Account and/or access to the Platform in Petsfolio’s absolute discretion. It is the responsibility of each Service Provider to only accept those Bookings that the Service Provider can commit to.
Without limiting the above, if a Service Provider cancels 3 or more paid Bookings within a 3-month time frame, this may result in immediate account suspension.
Cancellations by Service User:
If a Service User cancels a Booking prior to the period specified in a Booking, we will refund the Service Fee in accordance with the cancellation policy. This refund Service Fee will not be credited to the source of payment. It will be stored in the Service User’s Petsfolio wallet. If a Service User cancels a Booking during the service period specified in a Booking, we will not refund the Service Fee in accordance with the cancellation policy.
Cancellations due to Force Majeure:
The cancellation policies described herein may not apply in the event of certain emergency situations beyond the control of Service Providers and/or Service Users that make it impossible or impractical to perform agreed Bookings, such as earthquake, hurricane, wildfire, flood, war, riots or other similar disaster (as per the government declaration). In such cases Petsfolio may, in its reasonable discretion, issue refunds under terms that vary from a Service Provider’s selected cancellation policy.
General Terms for Cancellations:
All Service Providers and Service Users are required to read cancellation policy prior to completing a Booking so that both the parties are aware of the cancellation policy prior to Booking. If You require more information about cancellation policies, please contact us prior to Booking. If you wish to cancel a Booking, you should use the mechanisms available through the Petsfolio Service to do so. For purposes of the policies and terms, the date of cancellation is the date that a user cancels through the Petsfolio Service, regardless of any separate communications between users outside of the Petsfolio Service.
Every qualified refund will attract a Transaction fee (transaction fee will vary depending on the service used), which will be deducting from the amount that Petsfolio refunds to You.
|If the service commenced in between;||The payment release date would be;|
|1st to 15th of the month||31st of the month (or the last day of the month, whichever is earlier)|
|16th to 31st (or the last day of the month, whichever is earlier)||15th of the upcoming month|
Payments to the Service Providers will be released only if the Service Provider nominates a bank account. If you would like to update/change your bank account details, please do write to firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week prior to the payment release date.
Petsfolio validates the credibility of Service Provider by awarding ‘Badges’. It is the process by which a Service Provider can add his details such as:
In exchange of adding the above mentioned details, Petsfolio will reward the Service Provider with Badges. The more the Badges, the better the credibility is.
If a Service User makes a Booking for Pet Services such as Pet Sitting or Pet Boarding and fails to retrieve the relevant Pet within one (1) day (or any earlier time period agreed by the Service User at the time of Booking) after the date specified in the relevant Booking for the completion of the Pet Services, the Service User agrees that Petsfolio may (but has no obligation to), in its sole discretion, place or arrange a third party to place the relevant Pet(s) in foster care, shelter or similar and may notify the relevant authorities. Each Service User agrees that they are solely responsible for and indemnify Petsfolio for all costs, expenses and liabilities that Petsfolio may incur arising directly or indirectly from the Service User failing to retrieve the relevant Pets with respect to any Booking of the Service User. Nothing in these Terms operates to limit any applicable laws that may apply to a Service User’s failure to retrieve Pet with respect to any Booking of the Service User, including any applicable animal abandonment or cruelty laws.
The contact information relating to the Service User and the Service Provider who have entered a Booking is automatically provided to the other party after the Booking process.
Each User acknowledges and understands that such contact information will be relied upon in the event that Petsfolio, a Service User or a Service Provider (as the case may be) needs to contact the relevant User, including with respect to any emergency, medical issue or otherwise in the provision of any applicable Pet Services. You must keep all such contact information up-to-date at all times and must ensure that any Service User or a Service Provider You engage using the Platform is provided with and aware of such contact information.
In the event a Service Provider, in carrying out Pet Services, reasonably considers that the relevant Pet needs veterinary care or any other medical attention whilst in the Service Provider’s care, the Service Provider must immediately contact Petsfolio or the relevant Service User using the contact information provided by the Service User. In such case, the Service User agrees to respond to such communication from the relevant Service Provider and to provide instructions as to how the Service Provider should proceed, including whether medical assistance should be sought and if so, what kind of medical assistance should be sought, and whether the Service Provider can contact the veterinary contact provided by the Service User or in the absence of such contact information, a veterinary that the Service Provider reasonably believes to be appropriate.
In the event that a Pet reasonably requires veterinary care or any form of medical assistance whilst the Pet is in the care of a Service Provider pursuant to a Booking, then, provided that the relevant veterinarian or medical practitioner is qualified to provide medical treatment or advice regarding the Pet pursuant to any applicable laws, the Service User acknowledges, agrees and authorizes any actions to be taken with respect to the Pet which that veterinarian or medical practitioner recommends.
Without limiting the above, in case of any emergency relating to a Pet in the care of a Service Provider, the Service Provider must immediately notify the Service User (and any emergency contact provided by the Service User pursuant to the relevant Booking) and Petsfolio by sending us an email at email@example.com (and putting “Emergency” in the email subject line). The Service Provider must provide all relevant details of any emergency so that the Service User, the Service User’s emergency contact and/or Petsfolio can determine which veterinary care is required. In the event that the Service Provider is unable to contact the Service User, Petsfolio will take reasonable efforts during Petsfolio’s normal business hours to contact the Service User or their emergency contact and notify them of the situation.
If the Service User cannot be contacted in event of an emergency, the Service User authorizes the Service Provider and/or Petsfolio to take any and all actions reasonably required to obtain veterinary care and/or any other medical assistance and to take any actions recommended by such veterinarian or medical practitioner (as the case may be) with respect to the relevant Pet.
Without limiting the above, if a Service User and a Service Provider agree in writing as to the procedure to be followed in the event of an emergency, the Service Provider must use best endeavors to comply with such directions. This notwithstanding, each Service User agrees that the Service Provider can seek veterinary care or other medical assistance, as the Service Provider, acting in good faith, considers reasonably appropriate, including in the event that the Service User cannot be contacted.
In the event that the Petsfolio and/or a Service Provider obtains any veterinary care or other medical assistance with respect to a Pet, to the maximum extent allowed by law the Service User must:
Each Service User agrees that any costs or expenses incurred in connection with obtaining veterinary care or other medical assistance with respect to the Service User’s Pet under a Booking may be charged directly to the Service User. The Service User also authorizes the Payment Gateway Provider to charge any amount that we consider to be the subject of such indemnity. These amounts may be charged from the nominated bank account of the Service User using any credit card or PayPal details provided by the Service User.
Petsfolio is not liable to any property damage caused by a Pet or by a Service Provider to a Service Provider or Service User’s property or any other person’s property living in the same household as the Service Provider, nor does it cover any damage to a User’s property directly or indirectly caused by the Pet Services. Notwithstanding this, You acknowledge and agree that Petsfolio does not have any responsibility to reimburse or otherwise cover You for any property damage whatsoever, and You hereby indemnify, release and hold harmless Petsfolio with respect to any cost, expenses or liabilities incurred directly or indirectly in connection with any Pet Services, including with respect to any damage of property.
Petsfolio is not a party to any agreement between Users pursuant to any Booking, and as such each User agrees that any dispute relating to property damage in connection with Pet Services must be settled between the relevant Users. Each User releases and indemnifies Petsfolio with respect to any dispute between Users, including (without limitation) with respect to damaged property. This notwithstanding, Petsfolio may elect, in its absolute discretion, to facilitate communication between disputing Users.
This clause applies notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary.
Petsfolio and its affiliates and Third Party Providers and their respective directors, officers and/or employees (collectively referred to as ‘Petsfolio entities’) disclaim all risk of any loss, liability or damage (including personal injury, property damage, or death to any person or animal), which may arise in relation to the User’s use of the Platform, Our Services or the Pet Services (whether arising in breach of contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise), to the maximum extent permitted at law. This disclaimer of loss, liability and damage applies even if the Petsfolio entities should have the knowledge or have been advised, of the possibility of such loss, liability or damage.
Subject to the following paragraph, except where expressly provided otherwise on the Platform, all Content and Our Services are provided “as is” and each Petsfolio entity disclaims all express or implied representations, guarantees, warranties and conditions (“guarantees”) in relation to the Platform and Our Services, including such guarantees of merchantability, safety, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, quality of goods and services (including Our Services and Pet Services), reliability, availability, timeliness, quality, accuracy and suitability, and any guarantee related to the quality of goods and/or services of Third Party Providers and any persons or businesses referred to on the Platform, including such guarantees as may be implied by law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Petsfolio entity disclaims any guarantee that the operation or use of the Platform or provision of Our Services will be uninterrupted, secure, timely or free of errors, viruses or other items of an intrusive nature.

Nothing in the preceding paragraphs will operate to exclude any guarantee that may not be lawfully excluded. To the extent that a guarantee implied by law may not be lawfully excluded, but liability for breach thereof may lawfully be limited, the liability of each Petsfolio entity for breach of each such warranty is limited to one or more of the following (at the discretion of the relevant Petsfolio entity) and each User agrees that it is reasonable for the relevant Petsfolio entity to limit liability in the following manner:
Each Petsfolio entity disclaims all liability for any incidental, indirect, special or consequential damages which may arise in regards to the use of the Platform, Our Services or the Pet Services (whether arising in breach of contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise), to the maximum extent permitted by law.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, each User assumes, on behalf of itself and all third parties (including minors) who may be exposed to any animal in connection with any use of the Platform, Our Services or the Pet Services, all risk of liability, loss or damage (including property damage, personal injury or death to any person or animal) which may arise in relation to the use of the Platform, Our Services or the Pet Services (whether arising in breach of contract, breach of statutory duty, tort (including negligence), or otherwise). Without limiting the foregoing, each User acknowledges the risks arising providing or receiving Pet Services, including with respect to the risk inherent in dealing with an animal that may not be familiar with or accustomed to any persons (including minors) or property to whom such animal may be exposed.
Each User acknowledges that Our Services and Pet Services facilitated through the Platform are not appropriate for all animals and Pets. Each User acknowledges and agrees that Petsfolio is in no way responsible for any determination as to whether Our Services are appropriate or suitable for any Pet, nor are we responsible for any determination as to whether any Service Provider is appropriate or suitable for the provision of Pet Services in relation to any Pet.
To the maximum extent allowed at law, Petsfolio makes no guarantee, representation or warranty regarding any User Generated Content, including with respect to the accuracy or reliability of any User Feedback, comments or ratings on Service Providers on the Platform, nor as to the quality, security or positive features of the Service Provider or any location where Pet Services are provided.
Petsfolio is not a party in any Booking, agreement or transaction between Users. Petsfolio is not responsible for verifying or authenticating any User Generated Content and any other details provided by or about a User on the Platform, including with respect to any insurance coverage held by the User or any medical certifications.

Petsfolio reserves the right to review, suspend or terminate Your Account or Your access to the Platform if we determine that You have breached or threaten to breach any of these Terms. Without limitation, You must not do any of the following with respect to the Platform or Our Services:

Petsfolio reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate, cancel, or suspend a User’s Account or access to all or part of the Platform for failing to comply with these Terms. Furthermore, Petsfolio reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to delete any User Generated Content that Petsfolio considers is inappropriate.
The Platform may have references or contain links to sites controlled by parties other than Petsfolio. Petsfolio provides these links as a convenience and as interesting information for its Users and, except as expressly stated otherwise on the Platform, and to the maximum extent permitted by law, Petsfolio is not responsible for and does not endorse, or accept any responsibility for, the use or content of these third party sites. A User must always be cautious and take reasonable precautions to ensure that each such third-party site is free of viruses or other items of an intrusive nature.
Ads appearing on the Platform may be delivered to Users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize. Your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile non-personal identification information about You or others who use Your computer.

Petsfolio may, in its sole discretion and with or without prior notice, without liability to You, with or without cause, and at any time: (a) terminate these Terms or Your access to the Platform, and (b) deactivate or cancel Your Petsfolio Account or registration or similar uses of the Platform.

Please note that if Your Petsfolio Account is cancelled, we do not have an obligation to delete or return to You any Content that You have posted on or to the Platform.
To protect the best interests of Service Users and Service Providers, Petsfolio recommends that Service Users should obtain an appropriate insurance for their Pet before purchasing a service from the Service Providers. In the future, if Petsfolio introduce pet insurance, it would act as a secondary to any other relevant insurance the User may have, unless if it is provided by a third party insurance company which is recognized by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI).
Before resorting to the filing of a formal lawsuit, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution via email at email@example.com. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation. Only communications via the platform will be considered for dispute resolution. Communication on other third party channels will not be considered as part of the contract between Service Provider and Service User.
If you think that your dispute has not been addressed amicably by our customer service team, you may write to firstname.lastname@example.org within seven (7) working days from the receipt of the last email communication. You may expect a revert from the Grievance Officer within fourteen (14) working days.
If we receive a complaint from the payment processor, credit card or any financial institution, that a transaction is fraudulent, and could be due to a fake or fraudulent credit/debit card transaction, you will be informed and the payments for your jobs with the affected Service User will be held temporarily.
The investigation with the financial institution can take up to 180 days and if the transactions were found to be fraudulent you agree that the money will not be released to you as we too will be unable to receive that money from the payment gateway company as well, and you will return any monies previously paid out by Petsfolio to you for the related jobs.
If you believe the transaction is genuine, do update us with any proof that you have and you can continue to engage the Service User outside of our platform till the issue is resolved.
By using the Petsfolio app/website, you accept and agree that chargeback requests will be made only through Petsfolio. You acknowledge that we have the right to recover any chargebacks and reversals that may be imposed on us by a payment product issuer or third parties (such as payment processors) for the funds paid to you by the Service Users through the app/website. Additionally, we reserve the right to retrieve any processing fees or other charges incurred by us in connection with those chargebacks and reversals. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you acknowledge that we have the right to reverse any payments made to you that are subject to chargeback or reversal instructions from your payment product issuer or third parties (such as payment processors).
In the event that you initiate a chargeback request or similar process, you expressly consent to us sharing all relevant information relating to your agreement to these terms and conditions, for the purpose of contesting such chargeback request. If you’ve already requested a chargeback with your credit card issuer or payment processor, please refrain from contacting us to request a refund of funds. Attempting to recover funds twice will not be permitted. We may choose to limit, suspend, or close your account if we determine that you have requested an unreasonable number of refunds or chargebacks after reviewing all relevant factors. Petsfolio manages chargebacks and disputes with payment providers on behalf of Service Providers. While the outcome may vary depending on the chargeback reason, we strive to resolve disputes in favor of the Service Provider. If allowed by the chargeback case, Petsfolio (or one of our Payment Services Providers) will refund some or all of the revenue to the Service Provider, and the chargeback amount will be the responsibility of the Service Provider.
