As a user of the portal, you can view the profiles through the Professionals portal to reserve professionals for a specific period of time. For the booking of professionals you pay a booking fee, which is collected by the provider. The remuneration for the services provided by the Professional will be paid directly to the Professional.

The provider is entitled to reject registrations without giving reasons. The registration is only permitted if you are full-time and unlimited in business. Minor persons are not allowed to register. Registration is free of charge. The contact data and other information requested during the registration process must be stated completely and correctly.

It is your responsibility that the username does not violate the rights of third parties, in particular no name or trademark rights and does not violate good morals. The access data including the password must be kept secret by you and not made accessible to unauthorized third parties. It is also your responsibility to ensure that your access to the portal and the use of the services available on the portal is exclusively by you or by the persons authorized by you. If there is any fear that unauthorized third parties will have knowledge of your access data or will be able to obtain it, the provider shall be informed immediately.
You are liable for any use and / or other activity, which is carried out under your access data, according to the legal regulations.
Profiles of professionals on the portal / selection of profiles
The provider provides you with access to the profiles created by the professionals and the information contained therein (data, pictures, videos, etc.) on the portal. On the portal, you can select the profiles according to different criteria, in particular the services offered by the professionals as well as the respective location of the professionals. If you want to select the profiles based on the location, you must first consent that the portal can determine your personal location data and transfer it to the portal by accessing the appropriate resources of your devices or software. If this consent is not given, you must enter your selection by means of a manual entry, e.g. city.
Booking of professionals / authorization and debiting of reservation costs
By selecting a profile, you can access the information provided by the professional within the framework of the respective profile, and can send a reservation request (“reservation request”) to the person (s) under the reservation procedure. A transfer of the reservation request to the professional is made by the provider only after you have pressed the “Pay now” button as well as the confirmation of the payment data entered by you by the payment service provider. The amount of the cost of the reservation request (“reservation costs”) will be shown to you before the “Pay now” button is activated and the payment service data are transmitted to the payment service provider on the portal. If the reservation costs are only authorized and will be debited later, you will receive a corresponding notice on the payment page.
The professional must confirm your reservation request. Upon receipt of this confirmation, you will receive a confirmation of your reservation request (“Reservation confirmation”) by e-mail. The provider will also receive a reservation confirmation. The booking costs will be debited at the latest by the date of sending the reservation confirmation by the professional. If, within 24 hours after the reservation request has been sent to the professional there is no reservation confirmation or if your reservation request is rejected or canceled for another reason, the reservation costs will be refunded.
By sending the reservation confirmation to you or the provider, the professional is not obliged to provide certain services. The provision of these services is still at the discretion of the Professional. If you have received a reservation confirmation and the professional decides not to provide the services requested by you, the provider will reimburse the reservation costs on your used payment.
The authorization and payment of the reservation costs by credit card is only possible with Visa or MasterCard. Other credit cards are currently not accepted.

Name and surname of the credit card holder
Credit card number
Credit card expiration date
CVC code of the credit card

(“payment data”) The payment data are transferred to the computer of the financial company for settlement. The payment data are protected, stored in a PCI DSS certified system. The provider does not store your payment data on the systems it operates.
The companies are responsible for handling payment procedures.
The systems of the financial enterprise and of the payment service provider check the payment data you have provided for the correctness and, if applicable, the non-compliance of the credit card issuer. If the authorization fails for any reason, you will receive an appropriate message. The debit of the bank account or the credit card is dependent on the processing of the customer banks or their credit card issuing institution.
The reservation costs appear in the credit card account of the credit card issuer or the account withdrawal as a total amount in US Dollars and are marked with “Teledesk”.
Should you unjustifiably effect a chargeback (return of the amount), you are obliged to bear the valid processing fee and the foreign charges incurred by the credit card acquirer or the bank in addition to the amount of the reservation costs claimed in advance. The amount of the processing fee depends on the terms and conditions of your financial institution.
