7.2 Users will be charged the Artist’s fee for a service at the time their Order is accepted by the Artist. The fee will be held by us or our third party payment processing provider on the Artist’s behalf pending the completion of the Order. You agree that we are not acting as a fiduciary or trustee with respect to such funds.
7.3 An Order has been completed when both the Artist and User have marked the Order as completed through the App. We charge Artists a fee for completed Orders equal to 15% of the Artist’s fee for the Order. Our fee is deducted from the amount paid by Users for an Order. Within 5 business days of the completion of the Order, we will transfer the remaining balance of the Artist fee to the Artist.

Cancellations of an Order on less than 48 hours’ notice will be subject to a 10% fee which is payable to the Artist (less our fee of 15% of the amount paid to the Artist). The remaining balance of the total fee will be refunded to the User.
7.6 An Artist may cancel an Order which was accepted by them at least 72 hours prior to the start of the appointment. We reserve the right to charge Artists a fee for late cancellations equal to the lesser of (i) 10% of the total fee for the cancelled Order; and (ii) $50 CAD.

Your use of a third party site may be governed by the terms of that third party site.
9.1 Artists and Users are required to mark an Order as “completed” once the Artist has performed the services offered in the Order. For greater certainty, if a User is not satisfied with the quality of the services, but all services offered were provided, the Order has been completed. In the event of a dispute between an Artist and a User regarding whether the Artist provided the services offered in the Order, the following procedure shall govern:
a. Either party may, within 30 days of the date of the Order subject to the dispute, deliver a written dispute notice by email to email@example.com containing the following information:

ii. the contact information of the other party;
iii. particulars of the Order;
iv. a detailed description of the dispute; and
b. Elleziba will forward the dispute notice to the other party. The other party will have 10 business days to send us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org a written response to the dispute notice with supporting documentation .
c. Elleziba may request additional information from either party.
d. Based on the information provided to us, we will determine whether the Artist provided the services offered in the Order.
You agree not to hold us responsible for any determination which we make pursuant to the dispute resolution process in section 9.1. Your also agree that such determination does not represent a binding determination of the rights of either party.
9.2 Subject to the previous section, Artists and Users are solely responsible for resolving all disputes that arise between them. However, we may at our own discretion endeavour to assist where possible in the resolution of disputes. We can be contacted at 1-800-979-0711 or email@example.com for request to assist in a dispute. If we decide to assist, we will only be an informal mediator, the responsibility for resolution of disputes remains solely with Artists and Users.
