How the Site and Services Work
The Site and Services can be used to facilitate networking between customers and listed service providers in the Beauty and Makeup Industry, and to connect appointment seekers with available booking times listed by service providers. You may view limited content as an unregistered visitor to the Site; however, if you wish to access and utilize the Services, you must first register to create a MyBAMS Account (defined below).
Unless explicitly specified otherwise in the MyBAMS platform, MyBAMS’s responsibilities are limited to facilitating the availability of the Site and Services.
In order to access certain features of the Site, to create a profile page and/or appointment listing, and to contact other Members, you must register to create an account (“MyBAMS Account”) and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Site or as described in this section.
You can also register to join by logging into your account with certain third-party social networking sites (“SNS”) (including, but not limited to, Facebook; each such account, a “Third-Party Account”), via our Site, as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site, you may link your MyBAMS Account with Third-Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third-Party Account login information to MyBAMS through the Site; or (ii) allowing MyBAMS to access your Third-Party Account, as permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third-Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third-Party Account login information to MyBAMS and/or grant MyBAMS access to your Third-Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third-Party Account and without obligating MyBAMS to pay any fees or making MyBAMS subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third-party service providers. By granting MyBAMS access to any Third-Party Accounts, you understand that MyBAMS will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your Third-Party Account (“SNS Content”) so that it is available on and through the Site via your MyBAMS Account and MyBAMS Account profile page. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, will be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts will be available on and through your MyBAMS Account on the Site. Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or MyBAMS’s access to such Third-Party Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Site. You have the ability to disable the connection between your MyBAMS Account and your Third-Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the “Edit Profile” section of the Site. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS. MyBAMS makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and MyBAMS is not responsible for any SNS Content.
We will create your MyBAMS Account and your MyBAMS Account profile page for your use of the Site based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via an SNS as described above. Further information about the creation of your profile page is set out below. You may not have more than one (1) active MyBAMS Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. MyBAMS reserves the right to suspend or terminate your MyBAMS Account and your access to the Site and Services if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your MyBAMS Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify MyBAMS of any unauthorized use of your MyBAMS Account.
As a Member, you will be provided with a MyBAMS profile page. So that we can create your profile page, we will ask you to provide certain information about yourself, including, but not limited to your personal details, contact details, work experience and qualifications. Your profile page will be made available via the Site and Services to other Members. Professional Members will be able to contact you via the Site and Services.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for the content you post on your profile page.
As a registered Service Provider Member, you will be able to create appointment appointments which may be sold to a customer. Your listing will be made available via the Site and Services to other Members. You will be notified of any sales via the Site.
Please note that MyBAMS assumes no responsibility for a Member’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. MyBAMS reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any profile page or appointment listing for any reason, including profile pages or appointment listings that MyBAMS, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Site or Services.
MyBAMS does not endorse any Member or any listing. Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or appointment listing, or the Member’s purported identity or background.
We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to contract or meet with a listed service provider, or to have any other interaction with any other Member.
By using the Site or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from MyBAMS with respect to such actions or omissions.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.

If MyBAMS wishes to enforce any of its rights against you, we may elect to do so in the English courts or in the courts of the jurisdiction in which you are resident.
The failure of MyBAMS to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of MyBAMS. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
