Any dealings with any advertiser appearing on our website and app are solely between you and the advertiser or other third-party. We are not responsible or liable for any part of any dealings or promotions. The MySkilledMate website and mobile app provide a platform whereby members of MySkilledMate gain access to a wide variety of third-party services all aimed at providing a platform for members to list jobs, and earn a commission from service providers. This is accomplished by connecting MySkilledMate’s members with other members who can provide the requested job the member is looking for. Members pay a monthly subscription fee and commission fee to MySkilledmate for the provision of this platform by which members may list and find jobs.

However, MySkilledMate does not take part in the provision of these services and only offers access to independent third-party contacts who are also members of MySkilledMate, obtained through the use of the app or website. MySkilledMate is not a party to any contract formed between the member and any third-party agency.

This includes entering into any kind of relationship with those third parties and using any of the services offered on our website and app. Additionally, by engaging these third-party services, you acknowledge that you will be bound by the terms and conditions and privacy policies of that third-party’s services and content.
