CANCELLATION & REFUNDS
You acknowledge that you do not have any statutory right to cancel a booking made for a Service. However, you have a contractual entitlement to cancel any booking you have made with an Employee through us in the following circumstances and on the described terms.
Subject to the cancellation being a Late or Very Late Cancellation (as described below), if you change your mind about your booking prior to the agreed appointment start time in that booking (” Service Time “) then the Employee will be willing to treat your booking as cancelled (without requiring payment of all or any part of the applicable Service Fee and without levying any cancellation fee) if you cancel your booking via Our Site or Our App or via Customer Care on 020 3048 3253
_ at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the Service Appointment Time; or
_ if the Service Appointment Time falls within twenty-four (24) hours of the time of booking, within ten (10) minutes of you have confirmed that you want to make a booking (” Grace Period “).
If your cancellation of a booking is:
_ within twenty-four (24) hours of the Service Appointment Time; or
_ after the Grace Period has elapsed
then unless the cancellation represents a Very Late Cancellation (as described below), the Employee will be entitled to retain (or charge, as the case may be) thirty percent (30%) of the applicable Service Fee because your cancellation represents a Late Cancellation.
However, if your cancellation of a booking is within two (2) hours of the Service Appointment Time and if applicable, the Grace Period has elapsed, the Employee will be entitled to retain (or charge, as the case may be) one hundred percent (100%) of the applicable Service Fee because your cancellation represents a Very Late Cancellation .

1. Cancel a booking other than as permitted above;
2. Attempt to cancel a booking on or after Service Appointment Time; or
3. Fail to attend a booking at the Service Appointment Time and/or at the Designated Premises.
A cancellation fee is charged in order to compensate the Employee because it is not reasonable to expect Employee to be able to provide Service at another booking where you cancel with short or no notice.
Cancellation fees may in our absolute discretion be waived where you have been unable to cancel a booking without incurring the cancellation fee for genuine reasons which were outside of your control. Where cancellation fees are waived by us, we act as an agent of the Employee who is the principal in supplying the Services.

This subject to the availability of the Employee and also payment of an additional charge for the extended time calculated in accordance with the Service Prices (each an ” Extra Time Charges ” and collectively, ” Extra Time Charges “).
If you are delayed and unable to start the Service at the Designated Premises at the Service Appointment Time by more than 10 minutes then, unless the Employee agrees to the contrary (which is within the sole discretion of the Employee):
_ the Employee is entitled to end the Service at the time agreed when the booking was made without making any adjustment to the Service Fee to reflect the reduced time of the Service; or
_ if you and the Employee agree to proceed with the Service for the full time allotted not with standing the delayed start time, then the Employee shall be entitled to receive and you shall be obliged to pay before the relevant Service is given, an additional charge calculated at the rate set out with the Service Prices for extra time.
