Terms and Conditions
Last updated: 29/06/2017
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully. By accessing or using Independent Schools for Hire (ISFH), you agree to comply with these Terms and Conditions.
These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) constitute an agreement (“Agreement”) between you and ISFH governing your access to and use of the ISFH website (“Website”).
Schools alone are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to their Listings and any Services they offer.
Scope of Service
The Website is an online directory that enables registered users (“Schools”) to publish Venues, Facilities and Services (“Listings”) and to make the initial connection with potential hirers (“Hirers”) that are seeking to hire such Listings.
As the provider of the Website, ISFH does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings. The Schools alone are responsible for their Listings. When a Hirer makes an enquiry via one of the Enquire Now buttons they will be put in direct contact with the School. ISFH is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between a Hirer and a School. ISFH is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Hirer or School. ISFH does not offer any sort of insurance associated with any hire that may result from the initial connection made via the Website.
ISFH will not help facilitate the resolution of disputes and has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings. Furthermore, it does not hold any responsibility for the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other content provided by the School. ISFH does not guarantee the performance or conduct of any Hirer or School. ISFH does not endorse any School, Listing or Hirer. Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by ISFH of any Listing. When an image is not available ISFH will use a stock image and will make clear within the text associated to the photo that this is the case.
Schools and Hirers should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to enter into any contract or agreement, accept a booking request from a Hirer, or communicate and interact with other one another, whether online or in person.
If you choose to use the Website your relationship with ISFH is limited to being an independent, third-party directory, and not an employee, agent or partner of the School or Hirer. Both parties act exclusively on their own behalf and for their own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of ISFH.
To promote the Website and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Hirers, Listings and other School information may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements.
We reserve the right to:
modify or withdraw, temporarily or permanently, this Website (or any part thereof) with or without notice to you and you confirm that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification to or withdrawal of the Website; and/or

It is your responsibility to check regularly to determine whether the Conditions have been changed. If you do not agree to any change to the Conditions then you must immediately stop using the Website.
