ACCESSING OUR SITE AND AVAILABILITY

The Service is provided ”as is” and on an “as available” basis. TempRocket aims to update the site regularly and reserves the right, without notice, to alter, update, withdraw, suspend, amend or discontinue any part (or the whole) of the site including, but not limited to, the products and/or services available.

PURPOSE OF THE SERVICE

The purpose is to allow the hirer to search, book and manage all required temporary staff cover in real time and allow for the flexibility and control to remain at the hands of the hirer.

Contractors are actively exposed to gain more work as and when it best suits their availability. In turn the purpose also offers the agency registered with TempRocket the freedom to work across multiple locations throughout the UK without huge expense, and in most cases directly from one central head office. Thus reducing overhead, and offering the hirer a more competitive service.

OPERATION OF THE SYSTEM

Use per user type and obligations: Once your account has been accepted, you agree to use the TempRocket service in line with our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy’

Fees are outlined in our pricing section within the Agency Control Panel. All prices are subject to VAT.

You hereby agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless and to keep fully and effectively indemnified, defended and held harmless TempRocket and our officers, agents, partners and employees against all losses, expenses, damages and costs from and against any and all liability and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable lawyers’ fees, incurred in connection with any claim arising out of your use of the App, any false, misleading of inaccurate information provided by you, any ratings submitted in relation to your Agencies or Agency client companies, or any breach by you or any person to whom you have given access to your account of these Terms, including in particular this clause.

The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by us of any website. Your use of third party websites is likely subject to the terms and conditions of use and privacy policy contained within each of those websites. We may terminate a link to a third party website at any time.

We are not liable for damage to, or viruses or other code that may affect, any equipment (including any computer, tablet, mobile or other device), software, data or other property as a result of your access to or use of the Service. We are not liable to you for:

The exercise by us of any of our rights under these Terms is without prejudice to any of our other rights and remedies. The provisions of these Terms may only be waived by TempRocket in writing by express reference to the provision in question. No delay, neglect or forbearance on the part of TempRocket in enforcing any provision of these Terms is a waiver, or in any way prejudices any right of TempRocket under these Terms. A waiver by TempRocket of any breach of any of the provisions of these Terms does not constitute a general waiver of such provision or of any subsequent act contrary to it.
