You are permitted to use the Customer Services and the Documentation subject to the terms and conditions of these Customer Terms of Service. By using the Customer Services, you agree to all of the terms and conditions of these Customer Terms of Service, including the limitations on liability set forth herein. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE CUSTOMER TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THE CUSTOMER SERVICES.
1. CUSTOMER SERVICES
A. Registration and Information Collected
B. Bid Requests
After establishing a Customer Account, you may provide RoofMarketplace with information to create a request to be sent to certain applicable Providers in order to obtain a bid for the performance of various services (a “Bid Request”). Such Bid Request information shall include your address, the address of the locations requiring the requested services, your service needs and requirements and all other information necessary for a Provider to create an informed bid on such services. By submitting a Bid Request, you represent and warrant that all information submitted in such Bid Request is true and correct. Upon your submission of a Bid Request, where appropriate for the services requested (e.g. roofing), RoofMarketplace will submit the service address and location information to a third party aerial imaging service provider to provide images of the roof, building and surrounding areas of the location(s) for which the Bid Request is being submitted, along with calculated measurements of the subject matter of such images (based on the images), where applicable to the services requested (e.g. roof measurements) (the “Bid Request Images”). In some cases, Aerial Imagery may not be available due to tree coverage or other issues outside of our control limiting RoofMarketplace’s ability to complete a Bib Request. ROOFMARKETPLACE’S COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM YOU IN CONNECTION WITH COMPILING YOUR BID REQUEST IS NOT INTENDED TO REQUIRE OR ENCOURAGE YOU TO PERFORM ANY DANGEROUS ACTIVITIES TO OBTAIN SUCH INFORMATION, SUCH AS CLIMBING UP TO OR WALKING ON YOUR ROOF. WHILE OUR INTENT IS TO GATHER INFORMATION FROM YOU THAT CAN BE OBTAINED THROUGH SAFE MEANS, IF YOU DETERMINE THAT THIS IS NOT THE CASE, PLEASE CONSULT WITH AND USE A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL TO GATHER SUCH INFORMATION.
In accordance with this Section 1.D, RoofMarketplace will share your Bid Request, when Aerial imagery measurements are available, (including the Bid Request Images) with Providers to enable such Providers to prepare a bid for services in response to your Bid Request (“Bids”). RoofMarketplace will share your Bid Request only with those Providers who have indicated that they have the appropriate qualifications and/or preferences to perform the services requested in your Bid Request. Bid Requests submitted to Providers shall not include any personally identifiable information, such as your name, address or contact information, however it is possible that Bid Request information or the Bid Request Images could unintentionally reveal or be used to discover some personally identifiable information. Neither RoofMarketplace, nor its third party providers, shall be liable for any information revealed by any Bid Request Images. After completing the bidding process Providers will have access to your contact information to follow up on their bid for services and contact you directly to schedule a meeting.
D. Bids, Payment
Providers who have indicated qualifications and preferences aligned with your Bid Request shall have the opportunity to bid on your Bid Request for a period of time up to five (5) days from the date RoofMarketplace receives the aerial imagery for your Bid Request on the RoofMarketplace Site (the “Bid Period”). Within the Bid Period, if a Provider submits a Bid to RoofMarketplace in response to your Bid Request, you will receive a notification from RoofMarketplace that a Bid from such Provider is available to be viewed. Such notifications will be provided on a rolling basis within the Bid Period as Bids are received by RoofMarketplace from Providers. Each Bid will include the name and/or business of the Provider, the material conditions or criteria for the applicable services, the fees for such requested services and any other material terms and conditions applicable to such Provider’s provision of services to you. Providers are instructed by RoofMarketplace to (a) include in their Bids all fees necessary to perform the services requested, including local code permits, taxes and other fees, and (b) ensure that any Bid submitted via the RoofMarketplace Site is valid for a minimum of five (5) days.
E. Selection of Bid; No Subversion
After receiving the Bids online or when contact information is shared due to no Aerial Imagery, contractors will have the opportunity to follow up with you via the contact information provided in the request. RoofMarketplace recommends meeting contractors onsite to verify the Scope of Work before signing an agreement with any of the Contractors. Providers are required to honor their Bid and is prohibited from modifying such Selected Bid unless material conditions or criteria for the provision of the applicable services were not disclosed in your Bid Request, in which case modifications may be made solely to adjust for the conditions or criteria not disclosed. An onsite meeting does not constitute an agreement between you and such Provider for the provision of the applicable services, and the Provider may require you to enter into a separate agreement with such Provider prior to the Provider’s performance of the applicable services.
F. Availability and Accuracy of Bids
Bid submission is entirely within the discretion of the Providers, and RoofMarketplace makes no representations, warranties or guarantees as to the availability of any Bids meeting your Bid Request requirements or that you will receive a minimum number of Bids by using the Customer Services. Further, while we require that all Providers using our Site represent to us that they will only submit accurate and truthful Bids, we do not and cannot verify the accuracy and truthfulness of such Bids and Provider information. We recommend that you verify the accuracy and truthfulness of any Bid and Provider information prior to commencing services with such Provider. While RoofMarketplace requires Providers represent to us that they meet certain minimum criteria prior to submitting Bids via the RoofMarketplace Site, such criteria is not always verified or verifiable by RoofMarketplace, and RoofMarketplace’s provision of the Customer Services in no way indicates an endorsement or warranty as to any Provider’s quality of services or a guarantee of a certain performance or workmanship standard. RoofMarketplace is a matching service only and is not engaged in the provision of any services requested or identified in a Bid Request or any Bid. In addition to the foregoing, you acknowledge that because RoofMarketplace does not review Bid Requests for accuracy or legal compliance, it is possible that the services and work product you request in your Bid Request may not be factually accurate or legally compliant. RoofMarketplace hereby disclaims any and all liability pertaining to (a) the Provider-supplied information contained in any Bid, (b) any inaccuracies in any Bid Request Images generated by a third party, (c) any inaccuracies in your Bid Request, (d) the legal compliance of your Bid Request, and (e) any and all acts or omissions of any Provider, including any Provider’s performance of services in connection with a Selected Bid. In order to help us improve the quality of the Customer Services, we ask that you notify us in the event of any such issue with a Provider, Bid Request or the services provided in connection with a Bid Request by sending a description of the problem and relevant Provider to firstname.lastname@example.org.
