Key Points Summary:
We will remove without warning any listing found to contain inappropriate, false, or misleading content.
Roof Online’s Contractor Directory is a contractor listing and advertising service. Although we facilitate communication between consumers and contractors, we are not affiliated with the contractors who create listings on our directory website in any other way. We are not responsible in any way for the actions, performance, or service quality of any contractor that you contact after viewing their listing on our directory.
Roof Online does not endorse or warrant any contractor listed on our website, and Roof Online offers no guarantee regarding services performed by any contractor listed on our website. Roof Online does not perform background checks.
ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS & CONDITIONS
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS THOROUGHLY AND CAREFULLY. BY USING THE PLATFORM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS, THEN YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE PLATFORM.
All references to “you” or “your,” as applicable, mean the person who accesses, uses, and/or participates in the Platform in any manner, and each of your heirs, assigns, and successors. If you use the Platform on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity, your acceptance of these Terms will be deemed an acceptance by that entity, and “you” and “your” herein will refer to that entity, its directors, officers, employees, and agents.
Roof Online reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to modify the Terms, and any other documents incorporated by reference herein, at any time and without prior notice. Roof Online will notify you of changes by posting on the Roof Online website and may also, in our sole discretion, notify you by sending you a message and/or otherwise notifying you when you are logged into your account. Your use of the Platform after the changes are made will constitute your consent to the changes. If you do not agree, you may not access or use the Platform.

ELIGIBILITY, CONTRACTOR REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, AND USE OF THE PLATFORM
Access to and use of the Platform is available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old and can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. By accessing or using the Platform, you represent and warrant that you meet these requirements.
By registering or using the Platform to advertise, offer, or post Contractor Services, Contractors represent and warrant that they, and the employees, agents, suppliers contractors, and subcontractors who may perform work for them, are properly and fully qualified and experienced, and licensed, certified, bonded, and insured, as required by applicable laws or regulations to which they may be subject in the jurisdiction(s) in which they offer their Contractor Services and in relation to the specific job they are performing. Contractors otherwise agree to comply with all applicable laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act, any other applicable privacy laws, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, in their use of the Platform and any personal information obtained from the Platform.
Roof Online does not sell or otherwise provide Contractor Services. Any Contractor Services solicited as a result of on-Platform services are provided by an independent Contractor without any representation or warranty from Roof Online other than as expressly provided for herein. Roof Online also facilitates Contractor Service transactions, which facilitation may include displaying a list of Contractor profiles and allowing Consumers and Contractors to send messages to each other. Consumers understand that any such facilitation does not constitute a warranty in relation to the Contractor Services. Contractors understand and agree that using the Platform does not guarantee that anyone will engage them for Contractor Services. Consumers understand that any Contractor Services they solicit using the Platform are solicited directly from the Contractor providing such Contractor Services.
Contractors understand and agree that they are customers of Roof Online, and are not Roof Online employees, contractors, consultants, joint venturers, partners, or agents. Contractors acknowledge that they provide their own equipment, select their own jobs, develop their own expertise, are free to do jobs through other platforms and lead sources, and determine their own work schedule. Roof Online does not control, and has no right to control, the services a Contractor provides (including the details of how the Contractor provides such services) if the Contractor is engaged by a Consumer or any other person.
ACCOUNT REGISTRATION AND OTHER SUBMISSIONS
Users may access the Platform without registering for an account. To access and participate in certain features of the Platform, you will need to create a password-protected account (“Account”). You may register for an Account using certain third-party account and log-in credentials (your “Third-Party Site Password”), such as your Facebook or Google credentials. You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration or request submission process and at all other times when you use the Platform, and to update information to keep it accurate, current, and complete. You are solely responsible for safeguarding your Roof Online password and, if applicable, your Third-Party Site Password. You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs on your Account, and you will notify Roof Online immediately of any unauthorized use.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

NO ENDORSEMENT OR WARRANTY
Roof Online does not endorse, warrant or make any representation (except those expressly and unambiguously made by Roof Online directly on the Platform) concerning any User, or any Contractor Services, and Roof Online is not a party to any agreements between or among users, Users, or third-parties. Roof Online does not perform Contractor Services and disclaims all liability with respect thereto. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms or any user’s or User’s use of any part of the Platform, including but not limited to any scheduling or other services. Neither Roof Online nor any Users or users of the Platform may direct or control the day-to-day activities of the other, or create or assume any obligation on behalf of the other. Users are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and although Roof Online may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of Users, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any User or their purported identity or background.
Roof Online may publish articles containing tips, guides, lists, suggestions or similar content concerning building maintenance or home improvement projects. These articles are not comprehensive, and they do not necessarily apply to any User’s specific home or any other specific building. Any advice given in these articles is provided based on generalized, public knowledge concerning building maintenance, home improvement, and safety, and is not necessarily provided by experts. Roof Online articles should be considered only in conjunction with the advice of licensed experts and should never be construed as comprehensive. Roof Online disclaims any warranties or representations with respect to the articles on our website.
Any reference on the Platform or in any marketing to a User being licensed or credentialed in some manner, or “featured,” “vetted”, “best of,” “top,” (or similar language) designations indicates only that the User has completed a relevant account process or met certain review standards, and does not represent anything else. Roof Online does not perform background checks on the Contractors that are listed on our website. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Roof Online and is not verification of a Contractor’s identity and whether they or their Contractor Services are licensed, insured, trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Platform. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to have any interaction with any other User. Roof Online has no responsibility for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Users.
The Collective Content may contain links to third-party websites, media, offers, or other events/activities not owned or controlled by Roof Online. We do not endorse or assume any responsibility for any such links, and if you access them, you do so at your own risk.
By using the Platform, you understand and agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Users or other third-parties will be limited to a claim against those particular Users or other third-parties. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Roof Online with respect to such actions or omissions.
