If you do not fully agree to these Terms, you are not authorised to access or use the Site. You should read through all the Terms carefully. The Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you and Jarrett & Co Limited (“supplier”“we”“us” or “our”). You are not authorised to use the services offered via the Site unless you are 18 or over.

1. The Site, the Service and our role

1.1 We do not own or manage, nor can we contract for, any childcare centre, facility or club listed on the Site (“Providers”). Instead, the Site is a forum which enables Providers to advertise their amenities to parents and carers (“Parents”) and enables Parents to book the use of their centres, clubs and facilities. We are not involved in any transaction between Parents and Providers even though we may provide tools that relate to a booking and may collect payment from a Parent on behalf of a Provider. As a result, the contract relating to a booking of a centre, facility or club is between the Parent and the Provider and each part of an actual or potential contract between a Parent and a Provider, (including without limitation the quality, safety or legality of the centres or facilities advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings on the Site, the identity of Providers and Parents, ability of Parents to book the use of the facility or centre at specified times, or the ability of Parents to pay for the use of such facilities) are solely the responsibility of the Parent and Provider and it is the Parent’s and Provider’s responsibility to verify these matters. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility relating to the content and materials posted by the Providers and any reliance placed on this by you.

1.2 We are also not responsible for the operation or management of any facilities, centres or clubs listed on our Site or the compliance with laws, rules or regulations that may be applicable to any such facility, centre or club. Each Parent is advised to make appropriate enquiries with the Provider prior to making a booking and to raise any complaints directly with the Provider or the Provider’s regulator.

1.3 Where we collect payment on behalf of a Provider we act as an agent to receive payment on behalf of the Provider.  A Parent’s payment to us will constitute settlement of the Parent’s debt to the Provider in relation to goods or services booked with the Provider.   The cancellation terms applicable to the Parent’s booking with the Provider will be those set out on the Provider’s website or sent to you by the Provider and any cancellation may be made direct with the Provider or with us. However, in either case the Provider will be contractually liable for refunding the booking fee, in accordance with its terms of business.

2. Limited Licence to Use the Site
