You shall be wholly responsible for arranging for your own use of an electronic device with connection to the Internet and any applicable charges which you may incur arising from such use.
8.1 After an Account is created, you may curate a profile (the “Profile”) on the Platform which will allow you to indicate relevant information for any Engagement including, but not limited to, preferred location and healthcare facility (the “Preferred Criteria”) and enable any Client with requirements that match the Preferred Criteria to have access to your Profile. You may also create posts on the Platform reflecting the Healthcare Services you can provide including your work history and specialties]. Clients will also similarly curate a Profile which would be visible to all Users on the Platform and will allow them to create posts on the Platform to advertise required Healthcare Services and/or assignments to be performed (the “Request”).
8.2 Each Request must include sufficient details as requested by our Platform to ensure an accurate and complete description of the Healthcare Services required and details of the Engagement. By posting a Request on the Platform, the Client confirms that it is legally entitled to and capable of accepting the services described in the Request and the details of the Request are true and accurate. The Request is visible to all Users on the Platform who match the requirements of the Request, which may include geographical location..
8.3 A User with an Account and Profile can review the Request, communicate both publicly and privately with the Clients and respond to the Request through the Platform. If a User is interested in providing the Healthcare Services identified in the Request, the User must apply to provide the requested Healthcare Services (the “Application”). Each Application must include the information required by our Platform and be made prior to the timeframe of the shift set out in the Request (if any). By submitting an Application, a User confirms that it is legally entitled to enter into that relationship and to accept the terms of the Request and that it intends to provide the Healthcare Services set out in the Request.
8.4 A Client can accept or reject an Application via the Platform. An Engagement is formed if an Application is accepted by a Client via our Platform.
9.1 After the Engagement is completed, we require each party to provide a review of their experience with the other party (the “Review”). A Review is visible on both Client and User Profiles and will remain viewable until the relevant Account is removed or terminated. If you submit a Review, you agree to provide true, fair and accurate information in your Review. You can write a Review about a User if you (a) engaged the User through the Platform; or (b) you can otherwise document your interaction with the User in relation to the Platform, including via correspondence. You are encouraged to be specific and factual when writing your Reviews and you must not receive any incentives from Users to write a Review. Incentives include offering you a gift, reward, discount or advantage for writing a Review. If we consider that a Review is untrue, unfair, inaccurate, offensive, inappropriate, false, misleading, or discloses confidential information, we may delete the Review or ban you from posting the Review. We do not undertake to review each Review. To the maximum extent permitted by Law, we are not responsible for the content of any Reviews and accept no Liability for your reliance on a Review.
9.2 As part of the Review process, the Platform will generate a rating for each Client and User which is determined based on cancellation of Engagements within 48 hours of Shift start time (the “Reliability Rating”). A minimum number of 50 Shifts must have been completed for a Reliability Rate to be generated and only the 50 most recent Shifts are included in the score. Reliability Ratings are visible on both Client and User Profiles. Reliability Ratings are generated through algorithms available on our Platform and we do not undertake to review any Reliability Rating. To the maximum extent permitted by Law, we are not responsible for the generation of a Reliability Rating and accept no Liability for any detriment incurred based on a Reliability Rating or the reliance on a Reliability Rating.
9.3 As part of the Review process, the Platform will generate a score for User to give an indication of a User’s match for a particular Request (the “Match Score”). Match Scores are visible by both the Client and the User, and rely on the information provided in the User Profile and requirements of the Client, as well as Shift history data, Reviews and Reliability Rating. Match Scores are generated through algorithms available on our Platform and we do not undertake to review each Match Score. The Match Score is indicative only and suitability for a role should be clarified in the Profile information. To the maximum extent permitted by Law, we are not responsible for the generation of a Match Score and accept no Liability for any detriment incurred by the User based on a Match Score or the User’s reliance on a Match Score.
10.1 A User may cancel an Engagement before the commencement of the Engagement via the Platform. A User may cancel an Engagement at any time.

Cancellation may affect a User’s Reliability Rating.
10.2 A Client may cancel an Engagement before the commencement of the Engagement via the Platform. A Client may cancel an Engagement at any time. If the Client needs to cancel an Engagement, the Client must indicate via the Platform and the Platform will be updated to notify the User as soon as reasonably possible. Cancellation may affect a Client’s Reliability Rating.
