Terms of Service

Last revised: 19 February 2024.

Thank you for using Car Valet Hero!

Please read these Terms of Service carefully. We will deem the continuing use of Car Valet Hero as your consent to these terms.

These Terms of Service (“Terms”, “Terms of Service”) are a binding legal agreement between you and Car Valet Hero that govern your right to use the websites, applications, and other offerings from Car Valet Hero (collectively, the “Car Valet Hero Platform”). When used in these Terms, “Car Valet Hero”, “Platform”, “we,” “us,” or “our” refers to the Car Valet Hero entity set out on Schedule 1 with whom you are contracting.

The Car Valet Hero Platform’s mission is to offer an environment that enables users (“Members”) to confidently and safely search for, book, publish, and offer car wash, valeting, and detailing services across Ireland. Members offering services are “Providers”, and Members searching for, booking, or using services are “Customers”. Providers offer car wash, valeting, detailing, ceramic coating and pre-NCT vehicle cleaning services (“Car Wash”, “Car Valet”, “Car Detailing”, “Ceramic Coating” and “Pre-NCT Valet”) and related activities (collectively, “Provider Services”, and each Provider Service offering – a “Listing”).

As the provider of the Car Valet Hero Platform, we do not own, control or offer any Listings and Provider Services. The Car Valet Hero is not a party to the contracts, entered into directly between Providers and Customers.

Customers can access and use the Platform as guest users or create a user account for convenience and availing of particular services, but must always enter and keep accurate information. Guest users avail of the features of the platform without necessarily creating a dedicated user account.

From a simple car wash to full valets, paint corrections and sophisticated detailing operations, they can browse through multiple Listings to find the one that matches the way they like their vehicle serviced. They can learn more about a Listing by reviewing the description and photos, the Provider profile, and past Customer reviews. If you, the Customer, have questions, just contact the Provider via the contact information in their listing or profile.

Providers must register an account with us to access and use the features of the Car Valet Hero Platform.

Car Valet Hero is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payments Terms policy (“Payments Terms”).

We maintain other terms and policies that supplement these Terms like our Privacy Policy, which describes our collection and use of personal data, and our Payments Terms, which govern any payment services provided to Members by the Car Valet Hero payment entities (collectively “Car Valet Hero Payments“).

Customer Terms

1. Searching and Booking on Car Valet Hero.

1.1 Searching.
You can search for Provider Services by using criteria like the type of Provider Service, location, available times, and price range. You can also use filters to refine your search results. Search results are based on their relevance to your search and other criteria. Relevance considers factors like price, availability, reviews, popularity, and saved Listings, and more.

1.2 Booking.
When you book a Listing, you are agreeing to pay the charges for your booking such as the Listing deposit or Listing price and applicable taxes where such are required and identified during checkout (collectively, “Total Price”). When you receive the booking confirmation, a contract for Provider Services (a “Booking”) is formed directly between you and the Provider. In addition to these Terms, you will be subject to, and responsible for complying with, all terms of the Booking, including without limitation, the reschedule and cancellation policy and any other rules, standards, policies, or requirements identified in the Listing or during checkout that apply to the Booking. It is your responsibility to read and understand these rules, standards, policies, and requirements before booking a Listing. Be aware that some Providers possibly work with a co-provider or as part of a team to provide their Provider Services.

2. Rescheduling, Cancellation, and Booking Modifications.

2.1 Rescheduling, Cancelling and Refunds.
In general, if you reschedule or cancel a Service, the amount refunded to you is determined by the Rescheduling and Cancellation Policy that applies to that Service. But, in certain situations, other policies take precedence and determine what amount is refunded to you. If the Provider cancels, or you experience something outside your control requiring you to reschedule or cancel a booking (as defined in our Extenuating Circumstances Policy), you may be entitled to rebooking assistance or a partial or full refund under our Rescheduling, Cancellation and Refund Policy. You may appeal a decision by Car Valet Hero by contacting our customer service.

2.2 Booking Modifications.
Providers and Customers are responsible for any booking modifications they agree to make directly, via the Car Valet Hero Platform, or direct Car Valet Hero customer service team to make on their behalf (“Booking Modifications”), and agree to pay any additional amounts, fees or taxes associated with any Booking Modification.

3. Your Responsibilities.
You are responsible for your acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you instruct to use the Platform or book Services on your behalf. You are responsible for instructing this user to act according to these policies and Listing conditions, (ii) you are responsible for presenting your vehicle under the conditions specified in the Listing, (iii) you are responsible for paying all Damage Claim amounts necessary to cover damage that you or person(s) acting on your behalf cause to a Provider premise and equipment, and (iv) you must act with integrity, treat others with respect and comply with applicable laws at all times.

Provider Terms

4. Providing Services on the Car Valet Hero Platform.

4.1 Provider.
As a Provider, Car Valet Hero offers you the right to use the Car Valet Hero Platform to share your Provider Service with our vibrant community of Customers – and earn money doing it. It’s easy to create a Listing and you are in control of how you provide – set your price, availability, and rules for each Listing. We may create a listing on your behalf upon your instruction in conjunction with the policies specified in our Payments Terms.

4.2 Contracting with Customers.
When you accept a booking request or receive a booking confirmation through the Car Valet Hero Platform, you are entering into a contract directly with the Customer, and are responsible for delivering the Provider Service under the terms and at the price specified in your Listing. You are also agreeing to pay applicable fees like Car Valet Hero’s service fee (and applicable taxes) for each booking. Car Valet Hero Payments will deduct amounts you owe from your payout unless we and you agree to a different method. Any terms or conditions that you include in any supplement contract with Customers must: (i) be consistent with these Terms, our
Additional Legal Terms, Policies, and the information provided in your Listing, and (ii) be prominently disclosed in your Listing description.

4.3 Independence of Providers.
Your relationship with Car Valet Hero is that of an independent individual or entity and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Car Valet Hero, except that Car Valet Hero Payments acts as a payment collection agent as described in the Payments Terms. Car Valet Hero does not direct or control your Provider Service and you understand that you have complete discretion whether and when to provide Provider Services and at what price and on what terms to offer them.

5. Managing Your Listing.

5.1 Creating and Managing Your Listing.
The Car Valet Hero Platform provides tools that make it easy for you to set up and manage a Listing. Your Listing must include complete and accurate information about your Provider Service, your price, other charges like taxes, and any rules or requirements that apply to your Customers or Listing. You are responsible for your acts and omissions as well as for keeping your Listing information (including calendar availability) and content (like photos) up-to-date and accurate at all times. We recommend that you obtain appropriate insurance for your Provider Services and suggest you carefully review policy terms and conditions like coverage details and exclusions. You may maintain multiple Listings but they should comply with all mentioned terms.

5.2 Know Your Legal Obligations.
You are responsible for understanding and complying with any laws, rules, regulations and contracts with third parties that apply to your Listing or Provider Services. For example, Some activity types require Providers to register with the local authorities, get a permit, or obtain a licence before providing certain Provider Services. In some places, the Provider Services you want to offer may be prohibited altogether. Check your local rules to learn what rules apply to the Provider Services you plan to offer.

Information we provide regarding legal requirements is for informational purposes only and you should independently confirm your obligations. You are responsible for handling and using the personal data of Customers and others in compliance with applicable privacy laws and these Terms, including our Provider Privacy Standards. If you have questions about how local laws apply, you should always seek legal advice.

5.3 Search Ranking.
The ranking of Listings in search results on the Car Valet Hero Platform depends on a variety of factors, including these main parameters:
Customer preferences (e.g. location name, Service type, duration, price range, previous use, saved Listings),
Listing characteristics (e.g. price, calendar availability, volume and quality of images and descriptions, Reviews, provider status),
The customer experience (e.g. the rating of the service, cancellation history of the Provider, ease of availing of the service, Provider requirements).
Car Valet Hero may allow Providers to promote their Listings in search or elsewhere on the Car Valet Hero Platform by paying an additional fee. More information about the factors that determine how your Listing appears in search results, our current promotional programs (if any) and how we identify promoted Content can be found in our Help Center.

5.4 Your Responsibilities.
You are responsible for your acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you allow to participate in providing your Provider Services. You are responsible for setting your price and establishing rules and requirements for your Listing. You must describe any fees and charges in your Listing description and may not collect any additional fees or charges outside the Car Valet Hero Platform except those expressly authorised by our Offline Fee Policy. Do not encourage Customers to create third-party accounts, submit reviews, provide their contact information, or take other actions outside the Car Valet Hero Platform in violation of our Off-Platform Policy.

5.5 Providing as a Team or Organization.
If you work with a co-provider or provider as part of a team, business or other organisation, the entity and each individual who participates in providing Provider Services, is responsible and liable as a Provider under these Terms. If you accept terms or enter into contracts, you represent and warrant that you are authorised to enter into contracts for and bind your team, business or other organisation and that each entity you use is in good standing under the laws of the place where it is established. If you perform other functions, you represent and warrant that you are authorised to perform those functions. If you instruct Car Valet Hero to transfer a portion of your payout to a co-provider or other Providers or send payments to someone else, you must be authorised to do so, and are responsible and liable for the payment amounts and accuracy of any payout information you provide.

6. Rescheduling, Cancellations, and Booking Modifications.

6.1 Cancellations and Travel Issues.
In general, if a Customer cancels a reservation, the amount paid to you is determined by the cancellation policy that applies to that booking. As a provider, you should not cancel on a Customer without a valid reason under our Extenuating Circumstances Policy or applicable law. If you cancel on a Customer without such a valid reason, we may impose a cancellation fee and other consequences. If: (i) a Customer experiences a Travel Issue (as defined by the Rebooking, Cancelling and Refund Policy), (ii) an Extenuating Circumstance arises, or (iii) a booking is cancelled under Section 12 of these Terms, the amount you are paid will be reduced by the amount we refund or otherwise provide to the Customer, and by any other reasonable costs we incur as a result of the cancellation. If a Customer receives a refund after you have already been paid, or the amount of the refund and other costs incurred by Car Valet Hero exceeds your payout, Car Valet Hero (via Car Valet Hero Payments) may recover that amount from you, including by offsetting the refund against your future payouts. You agree that Car Valet Hero’s Rebooking, Cancelling and Refund Policy, Extenuating Circumstances Policy, and these Terms preempt the cancellation policy you set in situations where they allow for the cancellation of a Reservation and/or the issuance of refunds to Customers. If we reasonably expect to provide a refund to a Customer under one of these policies, we may delay the release of any payout for that booking until a refund decision is made. You may appeal a decision by Car Valet Hero by contacting our customer service.

6.2 Booking Modifications.
Providers and Customers are responsible for any Booking Modifications they agree to make directly, via the Car Valet Hero Platform, or direct Car Valet Hero members support to make on their behalf and agree to pay any additional amounts, fees or taxes associated with a Booking Modification.

7. Taxes.

7.1 Provider Taxes.
As a Provider, you are responsible for determining and fulfilling your obligations under applicable laws to report, collect, remit or include in your price any applicable VAT or other indirect taxes (“Taxes”).

7.2 Collection and Remittance by Car Valet Hero.
In jurisdictions where Car Valet Hero facilitates the collection and/or remittance of Taxes on behalf of Providers, you instruct and authorise Car Valet Hero to collect Taxes on your behalf, and/or to remit such Taxes to the relevant Tax authority. Any Taxes that are collected and/or remitted by Car Valet Hero are identified to Members on their transaction records, as applicable. Car Valet Hero may seek additional amounts from Members (including by deducting such amounts from future payouts) if the Taxes collected and/or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge that Member’s tax obligations, and you agree that your sole remedy for Taxes collected by Car Valet Hero is a refund from the applicable Tax authority. You acknowledge and agree that we retain the right, with prior notice to affected Members, to cease the collection and remittance of Taxes in any jurisdiction for any reason.

7.3 Tax Information.
In certain jurisdictions, Tax regulations may require that we collect and report Tax information about you, withhold Taxes from payouts to you, or both. Suppose you fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to support any such obligation to withhold Taxes from payouts to you. In that case, we may withhold payouts up to the amount as required by law, until sufficient documentation is provided. You agree that Car Valet Hero may issue on your behalf invoices or similar documentation for VAT, disposal or other Taxes for your Provider Services to facilitate accurate tax reporting by our Customers and their organisations.

General Terms

8. Reviews.
After each Provider Service, Customers and Providers may have an opportunity to review each other. Your Review must be accurate and may not contain any discriminatory, offensive, defamatory, or other language that violates our Content Policy or Review Policy. Reviews are not verified by Car Valet Hero for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.

9. Content.
Parts of the Car Valet Hero Platform enable you to provide feedback, text, photos, video, information and other content (“Content”). By providing Content, in whatever form and through whatever means, you grant Car Valet Hero a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable licence, for the term of the protection of the rights so licenced, to access, use, store, copy, modify, prepare derivative works of, distribute, publish, transmit, stream, broadcast, and otherwise exploit in any manner such Content to provide and/or promote the Car Valet Hero Platform, in any media or platform, known or unknown to date and in particular on Internet and social networks. If Content includes personal information, such Content will only be used for these purposes if such use complies with applicable data protection laws per our Privacy Policy. Where Car Valet Hero pays for the creation of Content or facilitates its creation, Car Valet Hero may own that Content, in which case supplemental terms or disclosures will say that. You are solely responsible for all Content that you provide and warrant that you either own it or are authorised to grant Car Valet Hero the rights described in these Terms. You are responsible and liable if any of your Content violates or infringes the intellectual property or privacy rights of any third party. Content must comply with our Content Policy and Nondiscrimination Policy, which prohibit, among other things, discriminatory, obscene, harassing, deceptive, violent and illegal content. You agree that Car Valet Hero may make available services or automated tools to translate Content and that your Content may be translated using such services or tools. Car Valet Hero does not guarantee the accuracy or quality of translations and Members are responsible for confirming the accuracy of such translations.

Car Valet Hero charges fees (and applicable Taxes) to Providers for the right to use the Car Valet Hero Platform.

14. Resolving Complaints and Damage Claims.

14.1 If a Member provides valid evidence that you or a person acting on your behalf culpably damaged the complaining Member’s property, or property the complaining Member is responsible for, including consequential damages, (“Damage Claim”), the complaining Member can notify Car Valet Hero and/or seek compensation through the Resolution Center. You will be notified of the Damage Claim and given an opportunity to respond. If you agree to pay, you authorise Car Valet Hero via Car Valet Hero Payments to collect the amount of the Damage Claim from you.

14.2 If the Provider and Customer cannot resolve, or a Customer fails to pay a Damage Claim, the Provider may notify Car Valet Hero through the Resolution Center under the terms of the Provider Damage Protection Terms and seek compensation. Car Valet Hero will review the Damage Claim and ask the Provider to provide any required evidence (e.g. through appropriate documents, photos, invoices, or third-party experts) which substantiates the Damage Claim and the Damage Claim amount. The Customer will be given the opportunity to respond and provide any relevant counter-evidence. If Car Valet Hero determines, under consideration of the evidence provided, the Provider Damage Protection Terms, and applicable statutory rules on the burden of proof that the Customer is responsible for the Damage Claim, Car Valet Hero (via Car Valet Hero Payments) will pay out the Damage Claim to the Provider. If Car Valet Hero pays out the Damage Claim to the Provider, Car Valet Hero may collect the amount of the Damage Claim from the Customer, including by charging the Customer’s Payment Method up to a maximum amount of 500 EUR. Car Valet Hero may also pursue claims for recovering Damage Claims amounts, including amounts exceeding the maximum amount applicable for charging the Customer’s Payment Method, against a Customer using any remedies it may have available under applicable law, including referral of the matter to a collections agency, and/or pursuit of available causes of action and/or claims against a Customer. Members may appeal a decision by Car Valet Hero by contacting our customer service. As between Members and Car Valet Hero, the burden of proof regarding the Damage Claim and the Damage Claim amount always lies with Car Valet Hero.

14.3 You agree to cooperate in good faith, provide any information Car Valet Hero requests, execute documents, and take further reasonable action, in connection with Damage Claims, Member complaints, claims under insurance policies, or other claims related to your provision or use of Provider Services.

14.4 Any decisions made by Car Valet Hero about a Damage Claim do not affect your contractual and statutory rights. Your right to take legal action before a court of law remains unaffected.

15. Car Valet Hero’s Role.
We offer you the right to use a platform that enables Members to publish, offer, search for, and book Provider Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Car Valet Hero is not and does not become a party to or other participants in any contractual relationship between Members. Car Valet Hero is not acting as an agent for any Member except where Car Valet Hero Payments acts as a collection agent as provided in the Payments Terms. While we work hard to ensure our Members have great experiences using Car Valet Hero, we do not and cannot control the conduct or performance of Customers and Providers and do not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings or Provider Services or (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Reviews, or other Content provided by Members. You acknowledge that Car Valet Hero has no general obligation to monitor the use of the Car Valet Hero Platform and verify information provided by our Members, but has the right to review, disable access to, remove, or edit Content to (i) operate, secure and improve the Car Valet Hero Platform (including for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation and customer support purposes); (ii) ensure Members’ compliance with these Terms; (iii) comply with applicable law or the order or requirement of a court, law enforcement or other administrative agency or governmental body; (iv) address Member Content that we determine is harmful or objectionable; (v) take actions set out in these Terms; and (vi) maintain and enforce any quality or eligibility criteria, including by removing Listings that don’t meet quality and eligibility criteria. Where we remove or disable Content, we will notify a Member and provide the reasons for such a measure, unless such notification would (a) prevent or impede the detection or prevention of fraud or other illegal activities, (b) harm the legitimate interests of other Members or third parties, or (c) contravene applicable laws. You may appeal such a decision by contacting our customer service. Members agree to cooperate with and assist Car Valet Hero in good faith and to provide Car Valet Hero with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Car Valet Hero for any investigation undertaken by Car Valet Hero regarding the use or abuse of the Car Valet Hero Platform.

16. Member Accounts and guest users.
If you are a Customer, you can use the platform as a guest user or register an account. If you are a Provider, you must register an account to access and use the features of the Car Valet Hero Platform. The use of the platform is only permitted for legal entities, partnerships and natural persons who are 18 years or older. You represent and warrant that you are not a person or entity barred from using the Car Valet Hero Platform under the laws of the Republic of Ireland, your place of residence, or any other applicable jurisdiction. You must provide accurate, current, and complete information during bookings, communication and registration and keep your account information up-to-date. You may not register more than one account or transfer your account to someone else. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your account credentials and may not disclose your credentials to any third party. You must immediately notify Car Valet Hero if you suspect that your credentials have been lost, or stolen, or your account is otherwise compromised. You are responsible and liable for activities conducted through your Car Valet Hero Account unless such activities are not authorised by you and you are not otherwise negligent (such as failing to protect your credentials, as well as reporting the unauthorised use or loss of your credentials). If and as permitted by applicable law, we may, but have no obligation to (i) ask you to provide identification or other information, (ii) undertake checks designed to help verify your identity or background, (iii) screen you against third-party databases or other sources and request reports from service providers, and (iv) obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or their local equivalents.

17. Disclaimer.
We do not endorse or warrant the existence, conduct, performance, safety, quality, legality or suitability of any Customer, Provider, Provider Service, Listing or a third party and we do not warrant that verification, identity or background checks conducted on Members (if any) will identify past misconduct or prevent future misconduct. Any references to a Member being “verified” (or similar language) indicate only that the Member or Car Valet Hero has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. We are not responsible for outages or disruptions of the Internet and telecommunications infrastructure which are beyond our control and can lead to interruptions in the availability of the Car Valet Hero Platform. Car Valet Hero may, temporarily and under consideration of the Members’ legitimate interests (e.g. by providing prior notice), restrict the availability of the Car Valet Hero Platform or certain features thereof, if this is necessary for a view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Car Valet Hero Platform.

18. Liability.

Resolving complaints out of court

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) means settling a complaint out of court with the assistance of an impartial dispute resolution body. Resolving consumer disputes this way is easier, faster and less expensive than going to court.

23. EU/EEA Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement.

23.1 Application.
This Arbitration Agreement only applies to you if your country of residence or establishment is in the EU. If your country of residence or establishment is not in the EU, and you nevertheless attempt to bring any legal claim against Car Valet Hero in the EU, this Arbitration Agreement will apply for the determination of the threshold issue of whether this Section 23 applies to you, and all other threshold determinations, including residency, arbitrability, venue, and applicable law.

23.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process.
Car Valet Hero is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom this Section 23 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Car Valet Hero’s customer service team (described in paragraph 23.3, below), and if necessary (2) binding arbitration organisations and agencies as notified or authorised ADR bodies from the public list of authorised ADR bodies published by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) in the Republic of Ireland or ODR platform provided by the European Commission to make cross border disputes easier to solve. You and Car Valet Hero each retain the right to seek resolution of the dispute in small claims court as an alternative to arbitration.

23.3 Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification.
At least 30 days before initiating an arbitration, you and Car Valet Hero each agree to notify the other party of the dispute in writing and attempt in good faith to negotiate an informal resolution. You must send your notice of the dispute to Car Valet Hero by mailing it to Car Valet Hero, 2 Retreat Ridge, Athlone, Co. Westmeath N37 PX63, IRELAND. Car Valet Hero will send its notice of the dispute to the email address associated with your Car Valet Hero account or identified on your booking checkout. A notice of dispute must include: the party’s name and preferred contact information, a brief description of the dispute, and the relief sought. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute within the 30 days, only then may either party commence the arbitration by filing an arbitration request (available at https://ec.europa.eu/).

23.4 Agreement to Arbitrate.
You and Car Valet Hero mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or any use of the Car Valet Hero Platform, Provider Services, or any Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Car Valet Hero agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.

23.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement.
You and Car Valet Hero each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction for (i) any claim or cause of action alleging actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack); or (iii) a request for the remedy of public injunctive relief; or (iv) any individual claim of a criminal offence, assault or harassment arising from your use of the Car Valet Hero Platform or Provider Services. You and Car Valet Hero agree that the remedy of public injunctive relief will proceed after the arbitration of all arbitrable claims, remedies, or causes of action, and will be stayed pending the outcome of the arbitration.

23.6 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law.
This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and The European Commission’s Consumer Protection Cooperation (CPC) Regulation (EU) 2017/2394 as well as the ADR Directive 2013/11 and ODR Regulation (EU) No 524/2013 governs all substantive and procedural interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by the arbitrator by the Consumer Protection Cooperation (CPC) Regulation (EU) 2017/2394 arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the European Commission then in effect, except as modified here. The European Commission Regulations are available at www.commission.europa.eu. To initiate arbitration, a completed written demand must be filed and provided to the other party, as specified in the European Commission Regulations.

23.7 Arbitration Hearing/Location.
To make the arbitration most convenient to you, Car Valet Hero agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option: (a) in the EU where you reside; (b) via phone or (c) video conference. If the amount in controversy is €2,000 or less, the parties agree to proceed solely with the submission of documents to the arbitrator.

23.8 Attorney’s Fees and Costs.
Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the EU Rules. Either party may request that the arbitrator award attorneys’ fees and costs upon proving that the other party has asserted a claim, cross-claim or defence that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for harassment, or is otherwise frivolous, as allowed by applicable law.

23.9 Arbitrator’s Decision.
The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgement on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award any relief allowed by law, but declaratory or injunctive relief may be awarded only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.

23.10 Jury Trial Waiver.
You and Car Valet Hero acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.

23.11 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings.
You and Car Valet Hero acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative or consolidated proceeding. Unless we agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of the waiver contained in this paragraph as to any claim, cause of action or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, will be severed from this agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. If a claim, cause of action or requested remedy is severed under this paragraph, then you and we agree that the claims, causes of action or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.

23.12 Severability.
Except as provided in Section 23.11, if any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision will be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.

23.13 Changes to Agreement to Arbitrate.
If Car Valet Hero changes this Section 23 after the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject that change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date the change is effective. Rejecting a new change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any Dispute between you and Car Valet Hero (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and Car Valet Hero.

23.14 Survival.
Except as provided in Section 23.12, this Section 23 will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Car Valet Hero Platform or terminate your Car Valet Hero Account.
