These Terms of Service comprise a legal agreement between Yaya and you, the person accessing and using this mobile application (“You” or “User”). Yaya Services owns, operates, and maintains the Yaya mobile application (“App”) and other subsidiary platforms that are accessible from this App. By accessing the App, you are deemed to have read these Terms of Service and you agree to be bound by the Terms of Service, which shall govern your access and use of the App and all applicable laws and regulations.

1. Description of Services
Yaya provides mobile application services that facilitate the connection between individuals and families in search of various service providers. This service is specifically designed to enable users to review job-posting information and individual profiles of members who are seeking employment as childcare providers or housekeepers, collectively referred to as "Services." Through Yaya, individuals and entities offering caregiving services, known as "Service Providers," can create and share information profiles on the App. These profiles aim to facilitate the matching process with users in need of services, referred to as "Service Seekers.
Except for the Services offered and as detailed in this document, the App must not be used or accessed by individuals for any other purpose. The App functions as a platform for posting job opportunities and does not operate as a referral service. Yaya does not impose any charges or compensation on Service Providers or Service Seekers based on whether a Service Seeker decides to engage in or refrain from entering into an employment or independent contractor arrangement.
Once a match is established, Yaya is not a party to the relationship between the Service Seeker and the Service Provider. Yaya is not involved in, and therefore holds no liability to, Service Seekers, Service Providers, or any other third parties, arising directly or indirectly from such agreements or arrangements between the involved parties.
Yaya does not carry out verification, review, assessment, interviews, screening, or background checks on any of its Users or the content they post on the App. All risks, including potential physical harm, associated with interactions with other individuals through Yaya App's Services, are assumed by you.
Please refer to the App regularly for further information about the Services provided.
2. User Accounts and Access
To utilize specific functionalities within the App, the creation of a profile via the App ("User Account") is necessary. During the process of establishing, registering, and maintaining your User Account, you must supply Yaya with accurate, complete, and up-to-date registration details, including your name, email address, and other information requested by Yaya during the account setup ("Registration Data").
Upon the approval and creation of your User Account, access to the App will be granted. Maintaining the confidentiality of your account credentials rests solely upon you, and you are entirely accountable for all activities occurring under your account.
You recognize and agree that Yaya may, at its discretion, decline to establish a User Account or terminate or suspend your User Account if Yaya reasonably believes that the App or Services have been or could be misused by you or any third party gaining access to the App or Services through your User Account.
Furthermore, you commit to: (a) keep all Registration Data updated to ensure its accuracy and completeness; (b) uphold the confidentiality of your account credentials; and (c) take responsibility for all activities linked to your account.

You agree not to grant anyone else access to your account.
