“Customers” and “Photographers”
For the purpose of this document, a “Customer” (or “Customers”) is someone who seeks a quote for their job, and a “Photographer” (or “Photographers”) is someone who provides a quote to a Customer. Collectively, Customers and Photographers are known as “Users”.
Our Site is a platform connecting customers seeking a quote, with registered photographers who match the job criteria. Quote Requests must not break any laws, and must comply by the terms and conditions within this document. We do not take any responsibility for the accuracy of quote requests, nor the ability of the customer to pay for the work. Users accept sole responsibility for the legality of their actions under applicable laws, and are not to assume that jobs, and associated activities, are legal due to being posted on the site. Users must not post or quote for jobs that are prohibited by law.
