Performance of Shift Services
In providing the Shift Services to the Customer, the Shift Provider undertakes to:
The Customer has a twenty-four (24) hour period following the completion of the Shift Services (the "Dispute Period") to inform Ushift if the Shift Services performed by the Shift Provider is not up to a standard reasonably required of a Shift Provider or of any damage caused by the Shift Provider (the "Customer Dispute"). Ushift shall then inform the Shift Provider of such complaints from the Customer. In the event of a Customer Dispute, the Shift Provider agrees that it will either return to the Customer to complete or rectify the Shift Services to a reasonable standard or come to an agreement with the customer regarding an amended Shift Service Fee. No additional payment will be charged to the Customer for the performance of any rectification services in satisfaction of a Customer Dispute. For the purposes of clarity, Shift Services will not be deemed to be completed (and an invoice will not be issue to the Customer for payment) until a Customer Dispute has been rectified.
