These are the terms and conditions for clients (the ‘Terms’) for www.gethitched.com.mt (the 'Site'). The Site is operated by Servisino Limited (‘Get Hitched’, ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’), a private company incorporated under the laws of Malta with registration number and having its registered address at The Meadows 2, Triq MRO Frank Galea Haz-Zebbug, Haz-Zebbug ZBG, 9060.
The object of the Site is to provide an online platform to enable persons providing wedding services (the 'Vendor') and persons who wish to avail themselves of and pay for services (the ‘Client’ or ‘you’) to connect with each other. The Site is intended to allow the Vendors to offer their services in response to a Client’s search and request of various services (the 'Services').
All and any use of the Site shall be subject to these Terms and by using the Site in any way whatsoever you agree to be bound by these Terms in their entirety. Printing and keeping a copy of these Terms for future reference is recommended.
Get Hitched is a platform website that connects Clients with relevant Wedding Vendors against a single request for service.
Get Hitched categorises vendors against keywords. All industries are easily accessible by Clients against a simple drop down search. Once a Vendor is chosen, Get Hitched proceeds to intelligently ask relevant questions about the required service to the Client. Once all questions have been asked and answered, Get Hitched sends the Client’s request to all Vendors on its database that are registered in the category chosen by the Client.
Interested Vendors are then able to send a quote to the Client in a competitive scenario. A finite number of Vendors can do this for any given request on a first come first served basis.
The Client may then, but is not obliged to, choose the quote that is most favourable to him/her within a designated period of time.
We do not:
- provide the Services ourselves;
- get involved with the contract of work between the Client and the Vendor;
- get involved with payments between the Client and the Vendor;
- guarantee that the Clients will select you as a Vendor;
- act as agents or partners to the Vendors or the Client;
- take responsibility for any issues whatsoever arising in connection with Services provided by the Vendor.
All Clients must be registered with the Site in order to make a request for services.
Our Site provides Clients with the facility to search for a wide range of Services, and Vendors with the facility to list and quote for the same Services.
A full list of the Services offered on the Site is listed here www.gethitched.com.mt.
We regularly review our list of permitted Services and it is at our sole and absolute discretion as to whether a Service may be listed or not. We reserve the right to add or discontinue Services at any time.
All Service listings and Vendor details shall be represented in English.
We will receive requests for required Services (‘Request/s’) from Clients through the Site. These Requests will be assessed by us and forwarded, at our discretion, to a selection of Vendors that fit the relevant criteria.
When submitting your Requests, you may be asked by Vendors to respond to a number of questions in order to ensure that the Vendor has enough information to give a quote as accurate as possible.
On receipt of a Request, the Vendor shall assess the information provided, decide whether to quote for the job and, if in the affirmative, proceed to prepare the quote, including a cost estimate and personal message relative to the Service to be offered.
Quotes from Vendors will be sent directly to the Client via email however you may also be reached on the number that you submit.
We are in no way involved in the way a Vendor quotes for work requested and do not guarantee that Vendors are competent, skilled, qualified or available to carry out the work they quote for. Moreover, we have no control over whether you will be contacted by one or more Vendors, nor are we responsible for the number of quotes you receive.
You will receive a finite number of quotes for each Request you submit. You shall be at liberty to select and proceed with any quote received, or none at all, at your sole and absolute discretion.
Should you agree to engage a Vendor following receipt of the quote, any agreement or contract for the provision of the Service will be between you and the Vendor only. We will not be responsible for, or a party to, any agreement between you and the Vendor, nor are we bound by any of the terms of such an agreement. It is up to you and the Vendor to agree on terms of provision of service and to ensure that the appropriate agreement is in place.
We do not get involved in any aspect of the payment process, and any transfer of money shall be arranged directly between you and the Vendor.
You may only use quotes received from Vendors and any other information or materials provided by Vendors (including personal information of the Vendor and images and video) (‘Vendor Materials’) for the sole purpose of assessing the relative quote. You will keep such Vendor Materials confidential and secure from third party access at all times. You shall remain responsible at all times for any unauthorised and/or illegal use of Vendor Materials.
Each Client and Vendor has a rating.
Following completion of works, both the Client and the Vendor will be prompted to leave a review of the other party making up the transaction. We are not involved in this review in any way and cannot be held responsible for negative or unfavourable reviews.
