You agree to operate your account in accordance with all applicable laws and will not post any misleading or deceptive advertising, pricing or other information.
As a portal that facilitates the connection between Business Account holders and Customers, we are not a party to any agreement between Customers and Business Account holders for bookings made or facilitated via the Service, whether that agreement is formed via the Service or elsewhere. While we facilitate the connection, booking and payment process, you are free to further contract or negotiate additional terms of any agreement with other users.
As a Business Account holder, you acknowledge that Customers and users of the Service will be able to rate and review your business. Such ratings and reviews are made public. You agree that we shall not be liable or responsible to you for any damaging reviews or ratings. We only remove ratings and reviews if they are in violation of these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy.
Customer Account Holders
As a Customer Account holder:
- You acknowledge that the businesses listed on our Service and the goods and services they provide are provided by independent third parties who are not employed by or affiliated with us;
- When contacting a business on the Service, you are solely responsible for confirming the accuracy of all information you upload or post to the Service. By submitting a booking request or contacting such Business Account holders you understand and agree that the business with whom you have made the request has the right to accept or decline such request in its sole discretion;
- You agree to pay all sales and other taxes applicable to the Service and the services provided by Business Account holders; and

The Fees and Payments Policy is available online at (www.wazzio.com/rylli-payments). The Fees and Payments Policy includes a Rylli Surcharge Fee, which Customer Account holders agree to pay for each booking made on our Service.
As a Customer, you authorize us to process payments via our payment processor and send those payments, after deducting our fees, to the appropriate Business.
You acknowledge and agree that we use third-party payment processors for all credit card and related billing and payment charges. Your personal and credit card information is collected by them when you establish an account or cause a payment to be made on the Service.
Payment processing services are provided by Stripe (https://stripe.com/ca) and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our third-party payment processor.
Business Account Holder Fees
Our Fees and Payments Policy (https://www.wazzio.com/rylli-payments), as amended from time to time, also sets out the fees payable by Business Account holders. As a Business Account holder, you agree that we will deduct our fees from payments made by Customer Account holders and remit the balance of such payments to you in accordance with our Fees and Payments Policy.
If any information or terms posted to the Website or Service concerning fees, tax, discounts, refunds or cancellations are posted in error, we reserve the right to amend those terms without liability to you.
If a Customer’s booking request is accepted by a Business Account holder, a transaction is confirmed on the Service (“Transaction“). No Transaction is confirmed until the applicable Business Account holder accepts the request on the Service. Our payment processor may pre-authorize a Customer’s credit card in order to confirm the Transaction.
Either party may cancel the Transaction any time prior to the scheduled start time, without payment. However, Customers will be required to pay a one-time cancellation fee of $10.00 if they fail to attend a scheduled appointment or cancel the appointment after the scheduled start time.
In the event a Customer does not attend at the Business premises at the scheduled time, the Business Account holder may cancel the booking appointment in order to accept a new customer. Upon the Business Account holder cancelling the Transaction, no cancellation fees are payable by the Customer.
If a Business Account holder cancels a Transaction after the scheduled start time, and the Customer is in attendance, such cancellation may be used in considering their suspension or removal from the Service. Customers will be given the opportunity to rate and review the Business Account holder in such circumstances.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, but have no obligation, to refund or provide credits to a Customer or arrange for our payment processor to do so. As a Business Account holder, you accept the risks of our final determination that a refund may be granted to a user in our discretion. In the event a refund is issued, and we remain out-of-pocket, you, as the applicable Business Account holder, shall immediately pay to us any such amounts. We may also set off any outstanding amount payable to you against any debts you owe us.
