Doula Near Me Limited is a limited company (Company number 14370134) registered at Arnold Business Centre, Brookfield Gardens, Arnold, Nottingham, NG5 7ER. Doula Near Me owns the website (“Site”).The Site provides an on-line directory to enable expectant parents and those looking to gift expectant parents (“Clients”) to match with doulas (“Doulas”) and other related businesses (“Businesses”) with a view to purchasing their products or services for pregnancy, birth and postnatal support (the “Services”).

By logging in to your Doula Near Me account, you are agreeing to the terms below. If you do not agree to the terms, please do not log in to your account. These terms relate to your use of the Doula Near Me directory to seek products and services of Doulas and Businesses and are accepted in conjunction with Doula Near Me’s Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Guidelines.

Your account is for personal use only. 

Clients are not permitted to use the Site for any of the following purposes:

  • Disseminating unlawful, harassing, libellous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene, or otherwise objectionable or illegal material;
  • Transmitting material that encourages or insights conduct that constitutes a criminal offence, results in civil liability or otherwise breaches any applicable laws, regulations or codes of practice;
  • Make, transmit or store electronic copies of materials protected by copyright without the permission of the owner.

Clients will be responsible for any and all of Doula Near Me’s losses and costs resulting from their breach of the above. Breaches may also result in Doula Near Me disallowing you to use our site to seek products and services of Doulas and Businesses.  

Clients are solely responsible for, and assume all liability regarding, (i) the information and content they post on the Site; and (ii) their interactions with other users through the Services. Details of how Doula Near Me may use information Clients provide or post are set out in our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

Clients assume all risk when using the Services, including but not limited to the risks associated with any online or offline interactions with Doulas, Businesses or other Clients. Clients understand that Doula Near Me is unable to guarantee the accuracy of information provided by or about other Doulas or Businesses and that Doula Near Me is unable to confirm that any user is who they claim to be. Doula Near Me does not warrant and is not responsible for ensuring that providers of the Services are in compliance with any necessary professional rules or guidelines. You agree to take all necessary precautions when communicating with or meeting individuals through the Services.

Doulas, Businesses and Clients are free to reach whatever agreement they wish in relation to their services and Doula Near Me takes no responsibility for the terms agreed, nor does Doula Near Me take any money in relation to any contracts agreed. For the avoidance of doubt, all payments are strictly between Clients and the Doula and/or Businesses and Doula Near Me accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the interactions between Clients and Services.

When using the Doula Near Me Directory, Clients will enter the first half of the postcode (the outward code) in which they are looking for Services into the search box which will reveal Doulas and Businesses who have stated that they offer products or services within the area. In order to contact a Doula or Businesses, the enquiry form on the Site must be used at all times. Please note that whilst Doula Near Me reviews every directory listing we have no control over and do not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of a Doula or Businesses background and/or qualifications. Clients are responsible for making their own enquiries as to the suitability and quality of any Services before purchased. 

Nothing in these Client Terms affects your statutory rights.

If Doula Near Me fails to comply with these terms, we may be responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. However, we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is considered foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, you discussed it with us during the sales process.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will Doula Near Me be liable for any loss of profits or for any incidental, special, consequential or indirect damages arising out of or relating, directly or indirectly, to the use or inability to use the Site or Services, including, without limitation, damages for loss or corruption of data or programs, service interruptions and procurement of substitute services, even if Doula Near Me knows or has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will Doula Near Me be liable for any claims, losses or damages whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, general, special, compensatory, consequential, and/or incidental, arising out of or relating to the conduct of a Doula, Client, Businesses or anyone else in connection with the use of the Site or Services, including without limitation, bodily injury, emotional distress, and/or any other claims, losses or damages resulting from communications or meetings with other members or participation in Services. This includes any claims, losses or damages arising from the conduct of members who have registered under false pretences or who attempt to defraud or harm a Site user.

Doula Near Me and its contractors may use various ways of verifying information that Doulas have provided. However, none of those ways are perfect, and Site users agree that Doula Near Me and its contractors will have no liability to any Site user arising from any incorrectly verified information.

Nothing in these Membership Terms shall limit or exclude Doula Near Me’s liability for (i) death or personal injury arising from Doula Near Me’s negligence (as such term is defined by the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977); or (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentations by Doula Near Me.

Doulas may post copyrighted information or materials, which has copyright protection whether or not it is identified as copyrighted. Clients agree that they will not copy, modify, publish, transmit, distribute, perform, display, commercially use, or sell any Doula Near Me or third party proprietary information available via the Services or the Site. 

Doula Near Me will treat all personal information of Clients in accordance with our Privacy Policy and use of the Site will be subject to our Terms of Use.

Doula Near Me may transfer its rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect a user’s rights or Doula Near Me’s obligations under these terms.

These Client Terms are between Clients and Doula Near Me. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

If Doula Near Me fails to insist that Clients perform any of their obligations under these terms, or if Doula Near Me does not enforce its rights against a Site user, or if Doula Near Me delays in doing so, that will not mean that Doula Near Me have waived their rights against a Client and will not mean that a Client does not have to comply with those obligations. If Doula Near Me do waive a default by a Client, Doula Near Me will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that Doula Near Me will automatically waive any later default by a Client.

If you are a consumer, please note that these terms are governed by English law. This means a contract for the purchase of products or services through the Site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.  However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
