For the purposes of your personal use only, you may view such material on your screen and print a single copy.

14. General

14.1 We may send all notices under this agreement by email to the most recent email address you have supplied to us (unless otherwise stated in this agreement). Headings used in this agreement are for information and not binding. Any failure by either party to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this agreement does not mean this is a “waiver” (ie that it cannot be enforced later). If any part of this agreement is ineffective or unenforceable for any reason, then it will be replaced with a provision which as far as possible achieves the same thing and the rest of the agreement shall continue to apply. A person who is not a party to this agreement shall have no rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of this agreement except insofar as expressly stated otherwise.

15. Breakages

You should notify us of any claim within 72 hours of your last clean. Note that submission of claim does not guarantee a reimbursement of any kind and that we do not reimburse for damage caused to windows, articles of glass, china porcelain, earthenware, stone or other articles of a brittle nature. We reserve the right to fix an item instead of replacing it. Cleanily will require proof of purchase and proof of damage before we can settle any claim. We will determine the market value of damaged item based on purchase price, date purchased, the current condition of the item, and the cost to fix the item. This does not always equal the value to replace it with a new item. Without proof of purchase, we can only pay up to 25% of the market value. Neither Cleanily nor its insurers shall be liable for the first £250 of any claim nor for any claim of £250 or less in value.
16. Complaints

We take complaints very seriously indeed. If there is any aspect of our cleaning service that you are not happy with, please let us know immediately and we will use our best endeavours to put it right.
