General Terms and Conditions of Use

We thank you for visiting our Internet website (the “Website”) and/or using our smartphone application (the “Application”) (The Website and the Application, together, our “Services”).
Please carefully read these general terms and conditions of use (the “Conditions”). By accessing our Services, you manifest your acceptance and comprehension of the Conditions. We request that you do not access or use all or part of our Services, should you not fully consent to these Conditions.
In the Conditions, the terms “us”, “our(s)” and “Tatadam” are referring to Tatadam Sàrl, a corporation incorporated under Swiss law, whose registered head office is located in Moudon (VD), Switzerland, authorized to provide private placement services according to the Federal Act on Employment Services and the Hiring of Services. “You” and “your(s)” are referring to any person using or accessing our Services.
We reserve the right to amend the Conditions at any time, without prior notice. Please remember to regularly consult this page in order to take note of any amendment that may have been made to the Conditions. The version published on our Services at the relevant time applies between you and us.
We reserve the right to interrupt at any times the supply of our Services or to modify them, without prior notice and without stating reasons.

Our Services

Our Application is an online marketplace that enables registered parents (the “Parents”) to communicate and enter into a contractual relationship with baby-sitters offering, through a public profile, remunerated baby-sitting services (the “Baby-Sitters”).
Our Website aims at providing you with information about our Services.

Intermediary Status

Your attention is drawn to the fact that Tatadam merely provides the Parents and the Baby-Sitters (together, the “Parties”) with an online platform that enables the Parents to access a database of Baby-Sitters and the Baby-Sitters to be hired by the Parents. Thus, we merely act as an intermediary. Should a Baby-Sitter be hired by a Parent, the agreement is entered into between the Parties directly, without Tatadam being a party to – or involved in – the contractual relationship. Tatadam is in particular not liable for any of the Parents’ obligations (as employers of the Baby-Sitters) or the Baby-Sitters’ obligations (as employees of the Parents). We are neither the Baby-Sitters’ employer nor the principal of the Parties who act, in all respects, under their own responsibility. Tatadam assumes no liability in this respect.
THE PARENTS’ ATTENTION IS SPECIFICALLY DRAWN TO THE FACT THAT THE HIRING OF BABY-SITTERS THROUGH OUR SERVICES INVOLVES, IN PRINCIPLE, THE CONCLUSION OF AN EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES. SUCH AN AGREEMENT IMPLIES OBLIGATIONS FOR THE EMPLOYER (I.E. THE PARENT), THE INTENSITY OF WHICH MAY VARY DEPENDING ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES, SUCH AS THE OBLIGATION TO REGISTER WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANIES AND/OR THE INSTITUTIONS RESPONSIBLE FOR COLLECTING SOCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS, THE OBLIGATION TO PAY SUCH CONTRIBUTIONS, THE OBLIGATION TO DELIVER SALARY STATEMENTS OR CERTIFICATES FOR BABY-SITTERS OR THE OBLIGATION TO RESPECT THE PROVISIONS OF STANDARD EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS OR COLLECTIVE EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS WHICH MAY APPLY (INCLUDING IN TERMS OF MINIMUM SALARY).
The rates mentioned in our Application, which have to be understood as net hourly rates, are decided by the Baby-Sitters and depends on their professional experience, diplomas, etc. We cannot guarantee that these rates comply with the applicable law. It is the responsibility of the Parents to ensure this.
No salary payment is made through Tatadam and we charge no commission on the salary paid by the Parents to the Baby-Sitters.

Price of our Services

Registration or enrollment in our Application is charged to the Parents according to the rates indicated therein.
We offer different subscription periods so that you can choose the one that best satisfies your needs. Payment is made in advance for each subscription period, in principle through the store from which you downloaded the Application (Apple StoreTM or Google Play StoreTM). If we are unable to receive your payment, for any reason whatsoever (technical problem, lack of funds, etc.), your subscription price (and any additional cost arising from our incapacity to receive your payment) shall be charged to you according to the method of our choice. The subscription price is due regardless of your actual use of our Services.
When your subscription period expires, it is automatically renewed, with the same subscription price, for the same contractual period, unless you cancel your subscription at least prior to the expiration of your current contractual period.
You may cancel your subscription at any time through our Application or through the store from which you downloaded it (Apple StoreTM or Google Play StoreTM). Should an ongoing subscription be canceled, no refund will be made.
Registration or enrollment in our Application is free for the Baby-Sitters.
The access to our Website is free.
We reserve the right to change our rates or subscription offers at any time and without prior notice.
