CONSUMER TERMS

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 require MySelfCare to give you certain key information for there to be a legally binding contract between you and us.

MySelfCare provides a booking and purchase service (the Services). The Services allow you to book a range of Professional services (Professional Services) that are performed in each and every case by independent self-employed professionals (Independent Professionals), and to purchase related goods (“Products”) that are provided in each and every case by independent retailers (“Retailers”). In providing the Services, MySelfCare acts as the agent of the Independent professionals and / or Retailers. MySelfCare has no responsibility for any Professional Services or Products which you book or purchase through us: we are simply involved with the booking and / or purchase process, as well as providing ancillary services (including an online booking service) as explained below.

The Services we offer allow you to search through Our Site and purchase Professional Services and / or Products from a number of Independent professionals and / or Retailers. In enabling you to purchase Professional Services and / or Products through Our Site, we are acting as the commercial agent of those Independent professionals and / or Retailers. As part of the Services, we also provide some ancillary services such as assisting with customer service issues (again in our capacity as agent for the Independent professionals and / or Retailers).

However, as stated above, the contract for the purchase of the Professional Services and / or the Products is between you and the Independent professional and / or the Retailer. This means that it is the Independent professional or Retailer (not us) who is legally responsible for providing the Professional Service and / or Product to you. However, MySelfCare remains responsible in respect of its obligations to you in accordance with Our Terms which shall be legally binding. If you have any questions, complaints or requests for refunds, we can be contacted directly at geral@myselfcare.pt. MySelfCare will remain the point of contact for you for customer service questions.

MySelfCare shall, if requested, provide intermediary services between you and an Independent professional and / or Retailer in connection with customer service or dispute resolution matters.

AGREEMENTS FOR PROFESSIONAL SERVICESAND / OR PRODUCTS

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

When booked through us, the Professional Service you receive will be subject to the Independent professional's terms and conditions (Independent professional's Terms). You will be provided with and asked to confirm your acceptance of the Independent professional's Terms when making a booking through us. MySelfCare is not a party to the Independent professional's Terms: these terms will solely be between you and the Independent professional who provides you with your Professional Service.

PRODUCTS

When you purchase any Product through us, you will buy directly from the relevant Retailer (not from us) and the contractual relationship in relation to the sale will be only between you and that Retailer. We will not be a party to it. The relevant Retailer will be responsible for the sale, delivery and other after-sale care and our role is limited to acting as commercial agent to conclude the sale by accepting your order and collecting, or arranging for the collection of, your payment on behalf of that Retailer.

Our receipt of full payment from you will discharge your debt to the relevant Retailer in respect of that order. Though we may assist with certain practical issues on behalf of the relevant Retailer, we do not have any contractual obligations to you and you do not have any contractual rights against us regarding any Product sold through us by any Retailer.

BOOKING AND PURCHASE PROCESS

BOOKING PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

You can make a booking through Our Site or through Our App by choosing an Independent professional.

Your payment details will be requested at the time of booking and payment will be collected when you make a booking.

Full payment of the Treatment Fee is due at the time of booking the Professional Service with the Independent professional through us. Full details of the prices are referred to below.

The Treatment Fee belongs to the Independent professional who provides the Professional Service. MySelfCare, as the Independent professional's agent, collects or arranges for a third party to collect on our behalf, the Treatment Fee from you. Our receipt of the full Treatment Fee will discharge your debt to the relevant independent professional in respect of that booking.

We are appointed by Independent professionals to conclude bookings on their behalf as their commercial agent. Once your booking is accepted by us on behalf of the and the Independent professional, you will receive confirmation of your appointment from us by email.

By making a booking, you are responsible for:

  • Full payment of the applicable Treatment Fee;

  • Ensuring the Independent professional has access to your Designated Premises which must, in all cases, represent a suitable space in which the Professional Service can be performed, with all appropriate facilities (including adequate lighting and heating); and

  • Ensuring the health and safety of the Independent professional whilst at your Designated Premises.

PURCHASING PRODUCTS

Products may be ordered by clicking on the items you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may also order Products through an Independent professional, who shall initiate the order on your behalf and you will receive an email prompting you to finalise the order. You may check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order. You must agree to any Retailer terms presented to you before you will be able to proceed. The order is submitted by clicking the [“Buy Now”] button on the checkout page.

After placing an order, you will receive an acknowledgment email that your order has been received and giving you an order reference number. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to the relevant Retailer to buy the Product(s) ordered. All orders are subject to acceptance by the relevant Retailer. The Retailer is not obliged to accept your order and may, at their discretion, decline to accept any order. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the [“Buy Now”] button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s). Where your order is accepted, such acceptance will be confirmed by sending you an email confirmation that your order has been despatched or, if you opt (where available) to collect, when it will be ready for collection (“Order Confirmation”). You will receive an Order Confirmation in respect of each Retailer from whom you are making a purchase. The agreement between you and the relevant Retailer in relation to the Product(s) ordered (“Retailer Agreement”) will only be formed and become binding when the Order Confirmation is sent to you. After entering into the Retailer Agreement, the relevant Retailer will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Retailer Agreement.

The Retailer Agreement will relate only to the Product(s) which have been confirmed in the Order Confirmation. The relevant Retailer will not be obliged to supply any other Product(s) which may have been part of your order until such Product(s) have been confirmed in a separate Order Confirmation.

DELIVERY OR COLLECTION OF PRODUCTS

Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Your order will be delivered to the delivery address within the United Kingdom you specify when placing your order, unless you opt (where available) to collect it from one of the collection points offered by the relevant Retailer. Your Order Confirmation will include details of the delivery or collection.

Products comprised within the same order cannot be delivered to different addresses. Deliveries cannot be made to PO Boxes.

Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Product(s) are destined. The relevant Retailer will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.

RISK AND OWNERSHIP

The Product(s) ordered will be at your risk from the time of delivery or collection (as the case may be). Ownership of the Product(s) ordered will also pass to you on delivery or collection (as the case may be), provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Product(s), including any delivery charges, has been received.

PAYMENT

All Treatment Fees and / or Product Fees are payable through Our Site, Our App or over the telephone. We collect or arrange collection of payment of Treatment Fees on behalf of the Independent professional, and of Product Fees on behalf of the Retailer. In each case, our receipt of your payment as agent for the Retailer or Independent professional discharges your debt to that Retailer or Independent professional for the amount paid.

We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure that all of the information you give us when paying for the Professional Service and / or Product(s) is secure by using an encrypted secure payment mechanism. However, in the absence of negligence on the part of MySelfCare, we will not be legally responsible to you for any loss that you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information that you may give us at any time.

All payments by credit card or debit card need to be authorised by the relevant card issuer. We may also need to use extra security steps via Verified by Visa where applicable.

By making a booking or purchase you agree to provide complete, correct and true information including without limitation billing and payment information.

VOUCHERS AND CREDITS

All MySelfCare vouchers and credits expire within 12 months of issue date unless they are part of a promotion for which a specific expiration date was specified in writing.

All vouchers and credits are non-refundable or exchangeable for any currency or cash.

Cancellation of vouchers and credits may in our absolute discretion be authorized by MySelfCare when you have been able to explain to us and have genuine reasons to ask the cancelation. In this case a cancellation fee is charged (5euros – 15euros) to compensate website provider platform refound costs.

Where cancellation fees are waived by us, we act as agent of the Independent professional who is the principal in supplying the Professional Service.

PRICES

All fees and charges are inclusive of VAT where applicable or unless specified otherwise.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

The price of Professional Services (each a “Treatment Price” and collectively “Treatment Prices”) varies according to the type and duration of the Professional Service you book and also the location of the premises you have designated for the Professional Service to be provided to you by the Independent professional (“Designated Premises”). Treatment Prices are set from time to time and the Treatment Price you will be required to pay for a specific Professional Service (each a “Treatment Fee” and collectively “Treatment Fees”) will be determined by reference to the Treatment Prices in force at the date when that Professional Service is booked.

Full details of Treatment Prices are set out in Our Site and Our App. Treatment Prices are liable to change at any time and according to fluctuations in demand across the platform, but changes will not affect any booking which you have already made.

PRODUCTS

The price of Products (each a “Product Price” and collectively “Product Prices”) varies according to the Product selected. Product Prices are set from time to time and the Product Price you will be required to pay for a specific Product (each a “Product Fee” and collectively “Product Fees”) will be determined by reference to the Product Prices in force at the date when that Product was purchased.

Product Prices exclude delivery costs, which will be added (at the cost shown) to the total amount due when you view the items in your shopping basket.

Product Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which you have already been sent an Order Confirmation.

Our Site, Our App and our online chat booking service contain a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite best efforts, some of the Products listed on Our Site, Our App or our online chat booking service may be incorrectly priced. Prices charged will normally be verified as part of the despatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than the stated price, you will be charged the lower amount. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on Our Site, Our App or our online chat booking service, the relevant Retailer will normally either contact you for instructions before despatching the Product, or your order will be rejected in which case you will be notified of such rejection.

Full details of Product Prices are set out in Our Site and Our App.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

In addition to the responsibilities noted above, it is your responsibility to provide complete and accurate information at the time of booking or purchase. Failure to provide complete and accurate information may result in a rejection of your booking request, cancellation of your booking, an inability of the booked Independent professional to provide the Professional Service as requested or an inability of the Retailer to provide the Product. Such failure may lead to your payments being ineligible for refund, or a loss or incorrect delivery of your booking or Order Confirmation.

In such cases where there has been a failure on your part to provide us with accurate information, our cancellation and refund policy will apply.

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

You acknowledge that you do not have any statutory right to cancel a booking made for a Professional Service. However, you have a contractual entitlement to cancel any booking you have made with an Independent professional through us in the following circumstances and on the described terms.

A cancellation fee is charged (5euros – 15euros) in all orders to compensate website provider platform refound costs.

Subject to the cancellation being a Late or Very Late Cancellation (as described below), if you change your mind about your booking prior to the agreed appointment start time in that booking (“Appointment Time”) then the Independent professional will be willing to treat your booking as cancelled (without requiring payment of all or any part of the applicable Treatment Fee and without levying any cancellation fee) if you cancel your booking via Our Site or Our App or via the online chat booking service (on www.myselfcare.pt or in the MySelfCare mobile apps):

  • if the Appointment Time falls within ten (10) minutes of you having confirmed that you want to make a booking (“Grace Period”).

If your cancellation of a booking is:

  • within twenty-four (24) hours of the Appointment Time; or

  • after the Grace Period has elapsed,

then unless the cancellation represents a Very Late Cancellation (as described below), we will be entitled to retain (or charge, as the case may be) fifty per cent (50%) of the applicable Treatment Fee because your cancellation represents a Late Cancellation.

However, if your cancellation of a booking is within twelve (12) hours of the Appointment Time and if applicable, the Grace Period has elapsed, the Independent professional will be entitled to retain (or charge, as the case may be) one hundred per cent (100%) of the applicable Treatment Fee because your cancellation represents a Very Late Cancellation.

You will also be charged the full Treatment Fee if you:

  • Cancel a booking other than as permitted above;

  • Attempt to cancel a booking on or after the Appointment Time; or

  • Fail to attend a booking at the Appointment Time and/or at the Designated Premises.

  • Fail to provide accurate information for your Independent professional to attend the Designated Premises

  • Fail to provide accurate and complete contact details or personal information such as but not limited to full name, phone number and address.

  • Book a treatment that cannot be performed because you meet one of the contraindications that are mentioned on the treatment description page on our App or Website

A cancellation fee is charged in order to compensate the Independent professional because it is not reasonable to expect the Independent professional to be able to provide a Professional Service at another booking where you cancel with short or no notice.

PRODUCTS

Except in relation to certain Products set out below, you may cancel an order for a Product at any time before your order is delivered and up to 14 days afterwards, beginning on the day after your order (in its entirety) is delivered to you or, if you opt (where available) to collect it from one of the collection points offered by the courier and that collection point is managed by a third party other than the courier (for example, a local convenience store), the day after it is delivered to that third party (“Cooling-off Period”).

If you cancel, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Product(s) in accordance with the refunds policy (see below).

To cancel an order, you must clearly inform the relevant Retailer, preferably:

  • in writing, by email or telephone, giving your name, address and order reference; or

  • by completing and submitting our cancellation form available on Our Site or Our App, a copy of which is also enclosed with the Product(s) on delivery.

You must also return the Product(s) within 14 days after the day you notify your cancellation, in the same condition in which you receive them (which does not interfere with your right to take any reasonable steps to examine the Product(s) and make sure they conform to your order). Products must be returned to the relevant Retailer. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Product(s) while in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, the relevant Retailer may have a right to deduct the cost of any deterioration (due, for example, to your having used the Product(s)), up to the price of the Product(s), from the refund to which you are otherwise entitled.

To return the Product(s), you should package the parcel securely (making sure you include a note of your name and address (enclosing any returns slip, if you have been provided with one) inside the parcel) and then return it to the relevant Retailer, either by courier or by recorded delivery mail or other form of certified mail or, if the Product(s) are too bulky to return by mail, then by a suitable carrier, to the returns address stated either in the Order Confirmation or the delivery note inside the delivered parcel.

You are advised to take out enough postal/carriage insurance to cover the value of the contents. Please save your proof of posting/despatch and tracking information until your refund has been processed. You will be responsible for the cost and risk of returning the Product(s).

Details of the consumer rights described above, and an explanation of how to exercise them, are provided in the Order Confirmation. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.

PRODUCT REFUND POLICY

If you cancel an order within the Cooling-off Period, any refund due to you will be processed as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days after the day on which the relevant Retailer receives the Product(s) back or, if earlier, the day on which the relevant Retailer receives evidence that you have returned the Product(s) to the returns address (see above). You will be refunded the price paid in full (subject to any deduction the relevant Retailer is entitled to make due to your use of or damage to the Product(s)), including the cost of standard delivery. However, you will not be refunded your cost of returning the Product(s). If you received any promotional or other discount when you paid, any refund will only reflect the amount you actually paid.

Refunds are made using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase or converted into MySelfCare credits, unless agreed otherwise.

FAULTY PRODUCTS

If any Product you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make the relevant Retailer aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should inform the relevant Retailer as soon as possible, preferably in writing, giving your name, address and order reference.

Please note that we have no control over any Retailer or the quality of any of the Products or service the Retailer provides, we do not give any commitment regarding them, and we are not able to provide, and have no responsibility or liability for providing, any compensation to you on behalf of any Retailer.

Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.

EXTENSIONS AND DELAYS

If you wish to extend the time you have booked a Professional Service, the Independent professional will endeavour to fulfil your request. This is subject to the availability of the Independent professional and payment of an additional charge for the extended time calculated in accordance with the Treatment Prices (each an “Extra Time Charge” and collectively, “Extra Time Charges”).

If you are delayed and unable to start the Professional Service at the Designated Premises at the Appointment Time by more than 10 minutes then, unless the Independent professional agrees to the contrary (which is within the sole discretion of the Independent professional):

  • the Independent professional is entitled to end the Professional Service at the time agreed when the booking was made without making any adjustment to the Treatment Price to reflect the reduced time of the Professional Service; or

  • if you and the Independent professional agree to proceed with the Professional Service for the full time allotted notwithstanding the delayed start time, then you shall be obliged to pay before the relevant Professional Service is given, an additional charge calculated at the rate set out with the Treatment Prices for extra time.

We will collect the Extra Time Charges as agent of the Independent professional.

MYSELFCARE ACTS ONLY AS AN INTRODUCER

The Services enable those seeking Professional Services to book appointments with Independent professionals seeking to provide such Professional Services. Whilst MySelfCare assesses Independent professionals who wish to provide Professional Services, we do not guarantee or warrant, and make no representations regarding the reliability, quality or suitability of Independent professionals. This is entirely a matter for you. Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that MySelfCare does not have any obligation to conduct any background checks on any Independent professional and have no obligation in respect of any service they may provide.
