1. About these terms
1.2 By using the Service, you are deemed to accept these terms and conditions and agree to act in accordance with them.
1.3 Certain words and phrases used in these terms have defined meanings. Those definitions are set out below:
Community Organisation means any person who uses our Service as a community organisation (whether a charity, voluntary and community group, social enterprise, business, retail outlet, public bodies or other form of organisation within a community), posting Help Requests/Tasks to be performed by Volunteers as they may from time to time agree;
Help Seeker means any person who uses our Service as a Helper Seeker, signing up to request help and create Help Requests or Tasks for Volunteers;
Service means our platform and site providing volunteer management tools and an online matching marketplace to match those looking for help with those offering it; and
Task means a task, in whole or in part, submitted to our Service by a Community Organisation, with a view to its being performed by a Volunteer;
Volunteer means any person who uses our Service as a Volunteer, signing up to perform and performing Tasks for Community Organisations or fulfilling Help Requests for Help Seekers as they may from time to time agree;
User means any user of our Service, whether a Community Organisation, Help Seeker or a Volunteer.
2. Our Service as a Volunteer-Help seeker management platform and our role
2.1 Our Service is as a matching marketplace, bringing Volunteers, Help Seekers and Community Organisations together. Community Organisations and Help Seekers can submit Help Requests/Tasks to the Service setting out what they need and when they need it and, if we accept it, we will enable them to choose volunteers to perform the Task/fulfil the Help Request.
2.2 Our role is to provide the platform facilitating those exchanges, not to broker them and we are not party to any agreement between Volunteers, Help Seekers and Community Organisations for the performance of Tasks/fulfilment of Help Requests. Subject to a few requirements inherent to using our Service, which we set out in clause 6, Volunteers and Community Organisations are free to agree between each other on any terms they wish via the Service.
2.3 We are unable to implement a more advanced vetting procedures or run certain background checks than our initial checks, and so, as a platform, we cannot take responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of information that our Users provide about themselves. When dealing with another User of our Service, whether as a Community Organisation, Help Seeker or as a Volunteer, you must exercise at least the level of caution and care that a reasonable person in your position would exercise when dealing with strangers, especially if you are arranging to meet face to face. We do not have a more advanced vetting procedure or carry out any background checks, and, while our terms require Community Organisations using the Service to carry out checks, we have no responsibility for doing the same. We do have strict Guidelines which we ask all Users to follow. YOU CAN SEE THEM HERE:
2.4 Nothing about these terms or our Service is intended to create any obligation of exclusivity or any minimum performance requirement. You are free to volunteer or seek volunteers anywhere else as you see fit, and nothing obliges you to submit or agree to Tasks/Help Requests through our Service.
2.5 We are currently offering the service free of charge to the Volunteer, Help Seeker and the Community Organisation. We reserve the right at any time to introduce small fees for using the Service should we deem it necessary in order to maintain our service.
3. Your responsibilities generally
3.1 When you create an account with us, we ask you to choose a password to protect your account. You must keep that password safe, and you must not share it with anyone else. If you think someone else might know your password, you must change it straight away. You are solely responsible for all actions taken on our Service using your account.
3.2 Whether you use our Service as a Volunteer, Help Seeker or as a Community Organisation, we also ask you to provide us with certain information about you, such as your phone number and your email and post code/address. That information must be true, complete and current, and you must ensure that you keep it up to date. You may not create an account with us using an assumed name or someone else’s identity unless you have permission from them to do so (e.g. creating an account for your grandparent if they ask you to).
3.3 We may ask you for text and/or photos about you or your Community Organisation to upload onto the Service which other Users can see. You must ensure that you have all the necessary rights to use that material and to share it with us and with other Users of our Service, and you must ensure that material does not contain anything:
3.3.1 which is a trade secret or otherwise confidential; or
3.3.2 which is unlawful, offensive, obscene or defamatory.
3.4 If you leave feedback about other Users, that feedback must, where it contains opinions, be a fair assessment based on your own experience of dealing with that User. Where it contains statements of fact, those facts must be true. We reserve the right to remove feedback at our sole discretion. You have the ability to Report Users on the platform to us and we will take appropriate action.
3.5 Our Service provides access to a messaging system that allows us to communicate with Users. Help Seekers, Volunteers and Community Organisations who are connected for the performance of a Task/fulfilment of a Help Request may also communicate outside of our Service. Whenever you communicate with us through the Service, or other Users outside of but in connection with the Service and/or a Task/Help Request, you must not abuse or threaten them, use discriminatory language (such as racial slurs) to them, mislead them or make them promises you do not intend to keep. We reserve the right to terminate or suspend your account immediately in response to complaints about your conduct towards other Users.
3.6 We own or are licensed to use the intellectual property rights in our Service, including our branding and the underlying technologies. We grant to you a non-exclusive, revocable, royalty-free, non-sublicensable licence to use our Service in accordance with these terms for as long as your account remains active. You may not make any use of or exploit in any way any of our intellectual property rights except to the extent permitted by this clause 3.6.
3.7 You must not use our Service for any unlawful purpose. In particular, you must not use our Service to launder money, avoid sanctions or capital controls, pay or receive bribes, or to do anything in connection with the proceeds of crime. We reserve the right to monitor your use of the Service to ensure it is used lawfully.
3.8 Where another User shares with you in the context of the Service, information which they describe as confidential, or which is obviously confidential, you must not share that information with anyone else without their permission, unless you are required to do so by law. You must not post any confidential information (whether yours or another User’s) in any area of the Service which is visible to Users generally, and we will not have any liability if you do.
4. Your particular responsibilities as a Volunteer
4.1 When you create your account with us and indicate that you want to be a Volunteer, we will ask you to provide us with a short description of yourself and to provide us with relevant information about what kinds of requests you would like to help with, your skills, availability and your location. That information can be used to match you with potential Tasks/Help Requests and to give you the opportunity to be considered for the performance of such Tasks, so you must ensure that the information you give to us is accurate and current, and you must keep it up to date.
4.2 We will inform you once you have been matched to a Help Request or Task and the Help Seeker or Community Organisation has made an offer in return for you performing the Task. You can also reach out to public help requests or Community Organisations whose details are listed directly.
4.3 If you agree with a Help Seeker or Community Organisation that you will fulfil a Help Request/perform a Task for them, you must fulfil that Help Request/perform that Task with reasonable care and skill and in accordance with (and otherwise comply with) our Guidelines and any reasonable instructions received from that Help Seeker Community Organisation.
4.4 You are responsible for ensuring that you perform that Task or fulfil that Help Request in accordance with applicable laws. This includes ensuring that any personal data you receive during the course of performing the Task or fulfilling the Help Request is treated confidentially and is not disclosed to any other person.
4.5 You must not accept to fulfil a Help Request or perform a Task for a Help Seeker or Community Organisation unless, based on the information which the Help Seeker Community Organisation has provided, you are reasonably satisfied that you have the availability, skills, knowledge, resources and experience to fulfil that Help Request or perform that Task to the required specifications, standard and timeframe.
4.6 When helping with a Help Request or Task during the outbreak of COVID-19, you will behave in a manner compliant with our Guidelines and all applicable law and guidance from national authorities in your country and the WHO relating to your interactions with other individuals, which may include (but is not limited to):
4.6.1 withdrawing yourself from the Service if you are feeling at all unwell;
4.6.2 washing your hands regularly, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using hand sanitiser;
4.6.3 covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze;
4.6.4 putting used tissues in the bin immediately and washing your hands afterwards; and
4.6.5 providing information on who the beneficiary of the Task or Help Request should call if they feel unwell.
4.7 You must not offer to perform, or describe yourself as able to perform, any service, Help Request or Task which is unlawful.
4.8 You are a volunteer, not our employee or an employee of any Help Seeker or Community Organisation, and you must not mislead anyone about your status.
4.9 You are responsible for your own costs and expenses in performing Help Requests Tasks, unless it is agreed with the Help Seeker or Community Organisation otherwise.
4.10 You are responsible for and will indemnify us in respect of any income tax, any National Insurance and social security contributions, and any other similar liability which arises as a result of your fulfilment of Help Requests, performance of Tasks and use of the Service (and any penalty, fine or interest arising out of any of them), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws.
4.11 You will not respond to any suspicious Help Request/Task posts, attend to any suspicious Help Requests/Tasks or apply for Help Requests/Tasks that you feel are unsafe or inappropriate.
5. Your particular responsibilities as a Community Organisation or Help Seeker
5.1 When you submit a Help Request or Task to our Service, you must include all information which the Volunteer reasonably requires to fulfil the Help Request or complete the Task, including (but not limited to) your timing requirements.
5.2 When you submit a Help Request/Task, it must:
5.2.1 be voluntary (that is, something that anyone can do by choice without coercion);
5.2.2 be non-discriminatory (that is, something that can be performed by anyone with the required skills and availability that fits your Help Request/Task Requirements and Preferences);
5.2.3 confirm the safeguarding requirements that the Volunteer will need to undergo, including (but not limited to) a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check at a level appropriate for the Help Request or Task being performed.
5.2.4 be removed promptly if it becomes unavailable;
5.2.5 not be a Help Request/Task which it would (in whole or in part) be unlawful to perform;
5.2.6 contain any material which is defamatory of any other person, or contain any material which is obscene or offensive in our opinion;
5.2.7 promote discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age, or promote religious or political beliefs;
5.2.8 contain misleading or deceptive statements or omissions or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person;
5.2.9 be likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person; or
5.2.10 be likely to disrupt the Service in any way,
5.3 You must not submit a Help Request/Task which is, or which could be interpreted as, an offer of employment. Volunteers are volunteers, not contractors or your employees, and you must not treat them as such. We are not responsible for any tax, National Insurance or similar liability, or any resulting cost, which you may incur as a result of HMRC finding that a Volunteer is your employee.
5.4 Community Organisations will themselves be responsible for ensuring that prior to performance of any Task, each selected Volunteer is of fit and proper character to undertake such Task (this may include, but is not limited to, ensuring that the Volunteer has recently undertaken a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check at a level appropriate for the Task being performed). This must be established by Community Organisations themselves before a Volunteer is assigned to any Tasks and must be monitored so as to ensure the status or suitability of the Volunteer does not fall below the requisite standards. This clause does not apply to individual Help Seekers.
5.5 We reserve the right to remove from our Service any Help Requests/Tasks which you submit in breach of these terms.
5.6 You may upload your database of your existing volunteers to the Service provided that:
5.6.1 you warrant that you have the necessary notices and lawful basis in place to lawfully share any personal data relating to those existing volunteers with Us as a data controller for use in relation to the Service;
5.6.2 you provide existing volunteers whose personal data you share with us with full information about any processing of their personal data that may take place in relation to the Service;
5.6.3 you ensure that you put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect any personal data in transit when sharing it with us.
5.8 You must not use the Service to upload or send to any Volunteer any special category data, including health data.
5.9 If you use the Service to share the personal data of any third party with a Volunteer, you warrant that:
5.9.1 you have the necessary notices and lawful basis in place to lawfully share any personal data relating to such third party with us as a data controller for use in relation to the Service; and
6. Code of conduct between Community Organisations, Help Seekers and Volunteers
6.1 You agree to comply with our Guidelines and the following code of conduct between you and a Community Organisation, Help Seeker or Volunteer (as the case may be) made through our Service:
6.1.1 the scope of the Help Request/Task to be performed will be as described and agreed through the Service;
6.1.2 the Community Organisation, Help Seeker and the Volunteer are independent of each other and nothing agreed between the Community Organisation, Help Seeker and the Volunteer will create any relationship of partnership, agency or employment between them;
6.1.3 Volunteers will never share any personal data of any third party through the Service in relation to a Help Request/Task;
6.1.4 if the Help Request/Task is an in-person task, you should try to start the Help Request/Task at a public meeting point, rather than at a private address where possible and if it is at a private address please follow our Guidelines;
6.1.5 you will report any User or content that violates these terms and conditions or anyone who sends you unwanted or inappropriate communications;
6.1.6 we at all times reserve the right under clause 5.5 to remove the Help Request/Task from our Service because it breaches these terms; and
6.1.7 the relationship between the Community Organisation and the Volunteer will be governed by the laws of England and Wales.
7. Amending or cancelling a task
7.1 Should a Help Seeker or Community Organisation need to make changes to a Help Request/Task (e.g. timing for completion of the Task), the Help Seeker or Community Organisation must contact the Volunteer and us as soon as possible (if possible, not less than two hours in advance to the start of the Help Request/Task). This will enable us to find alternative Volunteers if necessary and possible.
7.2 If a Help Seeker or Community Organisation wishes to cancel a Help Request/Task, a Help Seeker or Community Organisation can delete it on our platform but must contact the Volunteer and us, so we all know. This will hopefully prevent any unnecessary travel and other expenses being incurred.
