YOUR CONSUMER ACCOUNT.
To access and register on the Website as a Consumer, You must register for a Consumer Account with Us (“Consumer Account”). You agree to provide true, accurate, and complete information to Us and on all registration and other forms You access on the Website and to update such information to maintain its truthfulness, accuracy, and completeness. You must not provide misleading information about Your location. Upon Consumer Account registration, and from time to time thereafter, Your Consumer Account may be subject to verification as well as editorial and feedback reviews. Once You have registered and activated Your Consumer Account You may begin placing bids by clicking “Submit Bid” on the Website (each, a “Bid”) or service requests by clicking “Request Bid” on the Website (each, a “Service Request”).
BID REVIEW – WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.
Once a Consumer submits a Bid or Service Request, Bidology will search for Local Service Providers to either accept the Bid or respond to the Service Request. If a Local Service Provider clicks "Accept Bid" and provides the Local Service Provider’s payment schedule, Bidology will provide an alert to the Consumer that the Bid was accepted. If a Local Service Provider clicks “Respond to Request”, Bidology will provide the Local Service Provider’s response to Consumer. Consumer then has the option of accepting, rejecting or providing a counteroffer to the Local Service Provider’s response. Once the Consumer reviews all accepted Bids or Service Request responses, the Consumer will select the Bid and Local Service Provider that best fits their needs. Once a Bid is accepted, We'll immediately charge the credit card You provide to Us. Please note, You will not be provided with a list of Local Service Providers. Also, please remember that once You click "Submit Bid" Your Bid cannot be changed, cancelled, or transferred and refunds are not allowed. If We cannot find a Local Service Provider willing to accept Your offer, Your credit card will not be charged. Bidology’s service is different from other service directory sites. With Bidology's bidding platform, the accepted Local Service Provider is shown only after they have reviewed and accepted Your Bid. While Bidology will use its good faith efforts to respond to Bids within the time periods indicated on this Website, no guarantee is made that the status of Your Bid will be made available to You within the stated processing time. Neither Bidology nor its Local Service Providers are responsible for any errors or delays in responding to a Bid including, without limitation, error or delays in responding to a Bid caused by an incorrect e-mail address or other data provided by You or other technical problems beyond their control. Percent savings claim applies to provided Local Service Provider standard rate charges only. There is no guarantee that prices will be available. Actual prices and availability are always subject to change. All prices and dates may be subject to change by the local service provider and savings are not guaranteed. All sales final.
All Bids are non-refundable, non-cancellable and non-changeable. At the time Your Bid is accepted, Your method of payment will be charged for the amount shown, regardless of whether or not the LSP Services are used. Credit will not be given for any unused LSP Services and cannot be used toward any future purchases. You shall be completely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of the use of this Website. In connection with facilitating Your transaction, the charge to Your payment method will include a charge for taxes, as applicable.
