All terms refer to the offer, acceptance and consideration of payment necessary to undertake the process of our assistance to the Client in the most appropriate manner, whether by formal meetings of a fixed duration, or any other means, for the express purpose of meeting the Client’s needs in respect of provision of the Company’s stated services/products, in accordance with and subject to, prevailing English Law.

We are committed to protecting your privacy and the privacy of your clients. Any personal information we hold about you or your clients is purely for the purpose of providing our appointment reminder service. It is your responsibility to ensure that the clients whose contact details you upload/supply/enter have given permission to be contacted in this way – we accept no responsibility for this.

In order for our service to work we need to know when your appointments are and with whom. The main way this is achieved is by you granting us permission to access one or more online calendars (which details your appointments). The only information we extract or use from your calendar is the names of clients (that match those on your contacts list in our service) and the dates/times of appointments. The data is not used for any other purpose whatsoever.

Any data transmitted via the internet cannot be considered fully secure and any information you supply should take this into consideration.

We constantly review our systems and data to ensure the best possible service to our customers. Parliament has created specific offences for unauthorised actions against computer systems and data. We will investigate any such actions with a view to prosecuting and/or taking civil proceedings to recover damages against those responsible.

Payment is via monthly subscription using PayPal and subject to their terms and conditions. Payment is in advance on an ongoing, rolling-month basis with a fee related to your chosen Plan. It is your responsibility to ensure you pick the Plan appropriate to your specific circumstances. You can upgrade or degrade your chosen Plan at any time.
