The following are the “General Conditions” that regulate the use of Pluumber services, both in its web version and through the mobile application. These General Conditions constitute a binding agreement between any user and Pluumber Services & Maintenance. SL, and they will be considered accepted by you every time you access any of the web portal or the mobile application. Therefore, each user must read these General Conditions carefully and if they do not understand them, or do not accept them, they will not be able to use the services.

 

By accepting these General Conditions you declare that you are of legal age, that you have full capacity to act, that you have read and understood the Conditions of Use that follow and other legal terms such as the privacy policy or the cookie policy:

 

1. Ownership of the service

 

Both the published mobile platforms and this web portal are owned by Pluumber Services & Maintenance. SL, a Spanish company, domiciled in Pepe Osorio 56, 29670, Marbella (Malaga), with CIF. B-01758887 and registered in the Mercantile Registry of Malaga, Volume 27889, Folio 076, Section 1, Page MA-417391 (hereinafter “Pluumber”).

 

Any user may contact the company either at its registered office, or through our e-mail legal@Pluumber.es or the telephone number that appears on the website.

 

 

 

2. Conditions of use of the services

 

The services can be provided both from the Mobile Platform and from the website, but most of them will be developed through the Mobile Platform, acting as the place for (i) clients demanding services to announce their needs and receive the relevant quotes. (hereinafter “The Client”) and so that (ii) the service providers can access the clients’ requests and offer their services by sending the relevant estimates so that the client can make the decision to contract (hereinafter “The Professional”). Although throughout these terms we will refer to both roles jointly as “Users”.

 

Therefore, the purpose of Pluumber is to provide a place for individuals to create contacts for the purpose of providing or demanding services. This implies that the contractual relationship will be between the Client and the Professional. Pluumber does not assume any obligation from such contractual relationship since its function is simply to put both parties in contact to negotiate both the service to be provided and the price to be paid. Therefore, Pluumber is not involved in the transaction, nor does it recommend Professionals. The Customer expressly acknowledges that it is his sole responsibility to select a Service Professional and to negotiate with him the terms relating to the performance of any service or collaboration. Pluumber does not guarantee that a Professional is the most appropriate to perform the service requested by the Customer. Pluumber does not give guarantees about the quality or nature of the services and/or collaborations made, nor any other guarantee. Any commitment, statement or guarantee in this regard will be provided only by the Professional under the terms agreed with the Customer.

 

Therefore, the information contained in the Mobile Platform and the web portal is provided by the Clients and the Professionals, so Pluumber has no control over the accuracy, reliability, veracity of the published offers or the Contents generated neither by the Clients nor by the Professionals.

 

Therefore, Pluumber is not responsible for the Contents of the different user roles, the quality, security or legality of the services or professional data published, the veracity or accuracy of the professional lists, the capacity of the service clients to offer collaboration opportunities or services to the professionals.

However, with the above exceptions, you are advised that Pluumber Content generated by any user may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. Pluumber does not guarantee the accuracy, reliability, and truthfulness of such Content.

 

Each User will make use of the Mobile Platform and the web portal, depending on his role, either being a Client or being a Professional at his own risk. Therefore, Pluumber cannot guarantee nor promise specific results when using the Mobile Platform or the web portal.
