Services Offered.

Carrus provides, operates and manages an online marketplace offering a selection of professional coaches, specialized on personal development, business development, leadership and entrepreneurship, among other specialties. Thus, our users may browse, review, select, reserve and purchase coaching sessions from our selection of registered professionals. Our Site is the best way to request personalized coaching experiences with one single platform (the “Services”).

Please keep in mind that our Coaches are independent contractors, not our employees, and that the Site only serves as a contact and payment platform among the Client and the Coach.

Account Registration and Security.

In order to use our Services, you will need to create an account with us, including all mandatory fields on our registration forms, as requested by us from time to time. You must provide accurate and complete information. You agree to keep secret the password chosen upon creating your account and not to communicate it to anybody. If you lose or disclose it, you must promptly inform us.

You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account and for keeping your password secure and confidential, and must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. You will be liable for any and all misuse of your account, including the fraudulent use by a third party, or even the disclosure of your password. We reserve the right to request identification and compliance documents from our users, at any time and at our sole discretion.

We offer two types of accounts: (i) main account for Clients who may be individuals or companies who want to book Coaches’ sessions; and (ii) account for Coaches that are professionals in their area and who have the capacity to deliver a coaching experience to a Client, whether remotely via digital platforms, or on-site.

By activating your account you become a registered member and gain access to certain features, including the ability to post certain information and interact with other users. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account and for keeping your password secure and confidential. Authorized users may be you or your affiliates’ employees, representatives, consultants, contractors, agents, or other third parties who are acting for your benefit or on your behalf. If you suspect a breach of security or unauthorized use of your account, you must notify us immediately of any change in your eligibility to use the Site and the Services.

Note that as a user, you are only allowed one account per individual with one email address. Creating more than one account will result in a warning, and if ignored will be deemed in violation of this policy and any existing sessions will be cancelled and deemed non-refundable.

Account for Clients.

As a Client, you will be able to undertake many actions through our Site, including but not limited to: (i) browse and revise lists of Coaches offered through the Site; (ii) review the credentials, experience, curriculum and overall details of each coaching experience by our assorted selection of Coaches (e.g. name, sex, gender, age, topic, location, time length, availability, type of coaching sessions delivered, duration, rating, price); (iii) select a Coach in order to contact him/her and engage his/her sessions; (iv) mark Coaches as favorite for easier future access; (vi) select/add/edit the Coaches of your choice to your shopping cart; and (vii) confirm the address, location, time, location restrictions and other details. In order to be able to contact Coaches, you will need to verify your account, usually via an email link. Once verification is complete, your account will be active.

As a Client, you will also be able to create an “organization” account, where you will be able to authorize your employees and set a monthly budget so they can enjoy the sessions of the Coaches, thus improving morale and productivity in your organization.

This will allow you to invite your employees to the platform, set a budget for each employee, and a monthly budget for the entire organization that cannot be exceeded. You will be able to connect your company credit card to our platform.

When your authorized employees find and pay for a coach, they can select to pay with the company account, which is saved on our system. In essence, we serve as a “coaching as a service” platform that allows companies to plug into our marketplace, streamline invoicing, and provide coaching to their employees (potentially as an employee benefit, or under their learning and development budget).

Our platform will notify you of each employee that selects a coaching session, and you will be able to augment, diminish or freeze your monthly budget at any moment. You will also be able to de-authorize employees freely and also to pause the entire organization account, as it suits your needs.

Account for Coaches.

As a Coach, you will be able to undertake many actions through our Site, including but not limited to: (i) create, edit and list your profile the Site; (ii) review the properties of your coaching profile, edit and delete them and also mark them as available or inactive for the Clients (e.g. name, type, topic, type of credentials, experience and curriculum, available location, time zone, length of sessions, fee); (iii) receive, read, see and manage messages, negotiations, proposals and service´s history for your experience; and (iv) receive and read Client’s reviews and testimonials.

In order to be able to create and promote your services, you will need to verify your account and provide minimum documentation as requested by us, usually via an email link. Once verification is complete, your account will be active.

You may select your coaching profile to appear as inactive, and in turn it will not be displayed in the list in the front end of the Site.

You hereby represent, warrant and covenant to Carrus and its affiliates, licensors, agents and representatives that you have all necessary authorizations, licenses and permits to offer any and all related products and services, as required under your jurisdiction.

For our users who wish to open an account to provide their professional coaching services to Clients, we reserve the right to request certain basic documentation in order to carry out minimum background checks. Overall, we may request the following information in order to review each Coach and his/her contribution to our ecosystem:

  • Personal and professional information (e.g. name, physical address, telephone number, email address, utility bills, driving license, proof of address, proof of professional registration or license).
  • Information about service required, postal code and geographical location where the service is offered.
  • Ratings and reviews of services on other platforms.
  • Application information such as Coach’s experience, skills, credentials, portfolio, insurance policy coverage, eligibility to work, and availability.
  • Social media accounts linking.
  • Payment processing account linking.
  • Other information requested by our service and payment processing providers, including the use of third party entities for ID check.

Each registration will be reviewed to ensure that it fits into one of our supported service categories. Some Coach categories will be incompatible or redundant with our current offerings, and may be rejected by us at any time and without prior notice. Accordingly, we reserve the right, but not the obligation, to open and close service categories as we deem convenient for our business. This means that we will have the right to deactivate or pause your profile at any moment, providing you with a notice at least ten (10) days before we deactivate or pause it.

Coach profiles

Coach profiles should include information such as details of the services provided, images and videos, reviews, insurance information, and credentials. We offer certain functionalities targeted to Coach users, such as badges, advertising campaigns, profile enhancement and increased visibility. Some of these functionalities will be optional, and will be ruled according to their terms, price and conditions, to be indicated by us from time to time.

External links to a coach’s personal website or any service that might compete or conflict any way with the services offered by Carrus will not be permitted (such as sites that allow you to book a coaching session for career coaching). Websites like LinkedIn and relevant content that showcases a coach’s expertise are permitted. The specific permitted sites will be at the discretion of Carrus.

Carrus encourages parents, legal guardians and responsible adults to be actively involved in the safe use of the Internet by children and minors.

Payment Terms.

We rely on authorized third-party payment processors in order to bill Clients through a payment account linked to their personal account, and henceforth you hereby authorize us to charge the pertinent fees through your indicated payment processing account.  As of the latest effective date of these Terms, we use Stripe  as our payment processing platform.

Free calls: Your card will not be charged as long as you turn up to the session. We value our coaches time, therefore if you do not cancel and you don’t show up, we will charge you for 15 minutes of your coaches time.

Carrus is not responsible for any and all errors, fees and currency conversions fees by our banks and payment processor, and you should review their terms and policies from time to time, which will govern the provision of their services to you.

Payment for sessions

Any session that goes past the allotted time will be automatically charged to the users credit card. For example, if you have booked a 1 hour coaching session and go over by 30 minutes, you will be charged for 90 minutes total. The charge will be made to your existing payment method and is non-refundable. 

Payment for coaches

Carrus is a marketplace that works on both one-off transactions per sessions and a standard subscription model charged monthly to Subscribers (clients).

Coaches set their own hourly rate on their Profile. Carrus takes a variable 20%-30% commission from each coaching session, which is automatically calculated for each transaction. Your net revenue can be viewed in Payouts and is updated every 30 minutes.

Payments to coaches are processed on the 1st of each month via Paypal or your bank account via Stripe. Payout information should be entered in your profile settings. Payment times vary depending on your account but range from 3-7 business days.

All payments are exclusive of taxes.  Each Coach shall comply with its tax obligations individually and independently, and will not have the right to include or offset tax payments on its coaching fee.

Disputes & Charge-backs.

You must provide us with valid and current billing information. Except as expressly set forth herein, all payment charges are final and non-cancelable. If we detect any chargeback or if any payment is not received by us or our payment processors for any reason, you will promptly pay us any and all amounts due to us upon notice. Any failure or inability by us to process any payment hereunder does not relieve you from your payment obligations.

A chargeback is typically caused when a customer disputes a charge that appears on their bank or payment processing statement. A charge-back may result in the reversal of a transaction, with the amount charged back to you. You can be assessed charge-backs for: (i) customer disputes; (ii) unauthorized or improperly authorized transactions; (iii) transactions that do not comply with payment processor network rules or are allegedly unlawful or suspicious; or (iv) any reversals for any reason by our payment processor or the institutions handling the transaction.

When a chargeback is issued, you are immediately liable to Carrus for the full amount of payment of the chargeback, plus any associated fees, fines, expenses or penalties (including those assessed by our payment processor or the financial institutions handling the transaction). Accordingly, you hereby represent and warrant that you expressly appoint Carrus as your agent, with full power to recover these amounts by debiting your account or setting off any amounts owed to you by us.

If we are unable to recover funds related to a charge-back for which you are liable, you will pay us the full amount of the chargeback immediately upon demand; thus you agree to pay all costs and expenses, including without limitation, costs assessed by our payment processor, legal fees and other legal expenses, incurred by or on behalf of us in connection with the collection of any unpaid charge-backs unpaid by you.

Refund Terms.

We always aim to ensure that your Carrus experience is satisfying. However, if you decide to cancel or modify your order, Carrus must receive notification at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled date and time the Coach’s session. Your credits are automatically refunded if you cancel your session at least 24h before its beginning. If for some reason you need to cancel your session within 24h of it, you will be charged for 30 minutes. If you miss your session, you will be charged the entire amount. In both cases, you can contact your coach and ask if they can make a refund of your credits, it is not an obligation, it is at their discretion.

Packages: Not refundable once confirmed by the coach, unless specified otherwise.

Coaches do have the right to issue a refund for the appointed session, at their sole and final discretion, in which case, the Client will be able to contact the Coach and present the merit of its refund request.Mediation Terms.

If, for any reason a Client is not satisfied with the services provided by one of or selected Coaches, you must inform Carrus within the five days after completion of the Coach’s session. Carrus will deal with all dispute inquires within ten to fourteen working days, in which case the funds will not be released and will be kept frozen until the situation is amicably solved to the satisfaction of all parties.

If you have a complaint or refund request, you must contact support@carrus.io within 14 days with your request. The refunds of credits will not be eligible after this 14 day period has passed.

Carrus offers mediation services for situations that include, but will not be limited to: (i) Clients who are not satisfied with the quality or merit of the service provided by a Coach, therefor alleging that the performance and/or quality of a coaching session is not what such Client may reasonably expect from the selected Coach given market conditions; and/or (ii) Coaches who ascertain that they effectively performed an completed an order but where a Client indicated that he requests a refund.

Please keep in mind that the race, gender, age, location or cultural background of the Coach are not grounds for a mediation request, as such items are clearly indicated on each Coach account and are freely available for your consultation before you are able to select a coaching session.

Both Clients and Coaches will be allowed to provide evidence and supporting documentation of their argument, which will be duly received and reviewed by Carrus.

Carrus will not take part in a dispute other than as a mediator, and will make use of the means available via the Services in order to achieve an amicable resolution among the users. If the dispute parties cannot reach resolution between themselves (having used all reasonable attempts to do so), the dispute may be escalated to Carrus by either party, and we will undertake our commercial efforts to offer a non-binding recommendation for the settlement of the dispute.

Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation Covenant.

Coach hereby acknowledges that, by virtue of the disclosure of confidential information by Carrus, Coach’s knowledge of the business operations and user directory of Carrus will enable a Coach to put Carrus at a significant competitive disadvantage if Coach is employed or engaged by or becomes involved in a competitive business for Carrus, namely a website providing an online directory that links consumers and professional coaches, allowing them to negotiate, agree and pay for the services of Coaches that were originally contacted via the Carrus platform.

Accordingly, Coach hereby covenants and agrees that, as long as Coach is a party to this agreement for a period of one (1) years thereafter, it will not, directly or indirectly, individually or in partnership or in conjunction with any other person, without the consent of Carrus:

(a) be engaged, directly or indirectly, in any manner whatsoever, including, without limitation, either individually or in partnership, jointly or in conjunction with any other person, business, incorporated entity or as an employee, consultant, adviser, principal, agent, member or proprietor in any competitive business for the Site; and/or

(b) be engaged, directly or indirectly, in any manner whatsoever, including, without limitation, either individually or in partnership, jointly or in conjunction with any other person, business, incorporated entity or as an employee, consultant, adviser, principal, agent, member or proprietor in any competitive business in a capacity in which the loyal and complete fulfillment of Coach’s duties to that competitive business would: (i) inherently require that the Coach use, copy or transfer the confidential information of Carrus; and/or (ii) make beneficial any use, copy or transfer of the confidential information of Carrus.

As long as Client is a party to this agreement and for a period of two (2) years thereafter the Client and any entity affiliated or associated with Client shall not, during such period, without Carrus’ prior written consent: (i) solicit orders for products or services from Coaches in direct competition with the Site, with whom Client had knowledge of or dealings with during the time that such Client had access to the Site of Carrus; and/or (ii) solicit or entice away from their employment, or hire without the use of the Site, or engage as an independent contractor without using the platform of Carrus, any Coach or any subcontractor or independent contractor initially contacted through Carrus.

Upon the Case where a Client or a Coach deem convenient that they engage into a mutually beneficial commercial arrangement, both will first contact Carrus in order to ascertain the possibility of paying an exit fee.  Please be advised that Carrus will not be obliged to accept such arrangement, at its sole and final discretion, in which case the non competition and non solicitation obligations set forth herein will remain into force.
