Updated: January 12th, 2022.
These terms of service constitute a legally binding agreement (the “Agreement”) between you and Taylor Development Group, LLC DBA Kandu (“Kandu” “we,” “us” or “our”) governing your use of the Kandu website and technology platform (collectively, the “Kandu Platform” or “Platform”).
By entering into this Agreement, and/or by using or accessing the Kandu platform (whichever comes first) you expressly acknowledge that you understand this Agreement (including the dispute resolution provisions herein) and accept all of its terms. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE KANDU PLATFORM.
The Kandu Platform provides a platform where persons who seek assistance with product assembly, installation, delivery, and/or related services (“Customer”) can be matched with persons capable of providing such services (“Technicians”). Customers and Technicians are collectively referred to as “Users”. As a User, you authorize Kandu to match you with a Customer or Technician, as the case may be, based on factors such as your location, type of service requested, user preferences, and platform efficiency, and to cancel an existing match and rematch based on the same considerations. For purposes of this Agreement, the services provided by Technicians to Customers that are matched through the Platform shall be referred to collectively as the “Services”. Any decision by a User to offer or accept Services is a decision made in such User’s sole discretion. Each Service provided by a Technician to a User shall constitute a separate agreement between such persons.
Third Party Applications
The Kandu Platform may use and/or integrate with third-party software, applications, and/or website services. These services have their own respective Terms of Service and Privacy Policies. By using the Kandu platform, you agree to abide by the policies of any third-party service utilized by the Platform.
The Kandu Platform may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. The Kandu Platform is not available to children (persons under the age of 18) or Users who have had their User account temporarily or permanently deactivated. By becoming a User, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into and abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You may not allow other persons to use your User account, and you agree that you are the sole authorized user of your account.
Modification to the Agreement
In the event Kandu modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement, such modifications shall be binding on you only upon your acceptance of the modified Agreement. Kandu reserves the right to modify any information referenced in the hyperlinks from this Agreement from time to time, and such modifications shall become effective upon posting. Continued use of the Kandu Platform or Services after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.
As a Customer, you understand that request or use of the Services will result in charges to you (“Charges”). Charges include all applicable fees, surcharges, and taxes. Kandu has the authority and reserves the right to determine and modify pricing by posting applicable pricing terms or quoting you a price for a specific service at the time you make a request. Pricing may vary based on the type of service you request. You are responsible for reviewing the applicable price quote and shall be responsible for all Charges incurred under your User account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof.
Your selected payment method will be charged for the full service fee upon completion of the appointment. Projects that cannot be fully completed due to missing parts, pieces, components, documentation, and/or project misrepresentation by Customer, or any other situation outside of Kandu’ control, will be charged the full service charge, and a follow-up appointment can be scheduled if the Customer so chooses for an additional charge.
All Charges are facilitated through a third-party payment processing service. Kandu may replace its third-party payment processing services without notice to you. Charges shall only be made through the Kandu Platform. With the exception of tips, cash payments are strictly prohibited. Your payment of Charges to Kandu satisfies your payment obligation for your use of the Kandu Platform and Services.
All Charges are non-refundable. This no-refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate usage of the Kandu Platform, any disruption to the Kandu Platform or Services, or any other reason whatsoever.
You may receive coupons that you can apply toward payment of certain Charges upon completion of a Service. Coupons are only valid for use on the Kandu Platform, and are not transferable or redeemable for cash except as required by law. Coupons cannot be combined, and if the cost of your Service exceeds the applicable credit or discount value we will charge your payment method on file for the outstanding cost of the Service. Additional restrictions on coupons may apply as communicated to you in a relevant promotion or through other communications from Kandu.
Upon addition of a new payment method or each Service request, Kandu may seek authorization of your selected payment method to verify the payment method, ensure the Service cost will be covered, and protect against unauthorized behavior. The authorization is not a charge, however, it may reduce your available credit by the authorization amount until your bank’s next processing cycle. Should the amount of our authorization exceed the total funds on deposit in your account, you may be subject to overdraft of NSF charges by the bank issuing your debit or prepaid card. We will not be held responsible for these charges and are unable to assist you in recovering them from your issuing bank.
Fees for Service
Kandu will quote you a price for service at the time of your request. The quote is subject to change until the request is confirmed by the Customer and Technician.
After requesting a Service you may cancel it through the Kandu Platform, but note that in certain cases a cancellation fee may apply. You may also be charged if you fail to be present at the place of service during the confirmed appointment arrival window.
Other fees and surcharges may apply to your Service, including: state or local fees and processing fees. In addition, where required by law Kandu will collect applicable taxes or other costs.
Following the completion of the Service, you may elect to tip your Technician in cash. Any tips will be retained entirely by the Technician.
Payments to Technicians
If you are a Technician, you will receive payment for your completion of Services pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and any other agreement that may be entered into between you and Kandu from time to time.
Technicians are entitled to a payment for the Services performed for Customers as calculated by Kandu and agreed upon by Technician when Technician confirms through the Platform to perform the Service. If a Technician cancels the Service, we may charge the Technician a cancellation fee. In addition to the foregoing types of payments that may be earned by Technician, Technician will receive the following payments, if applicable: (i) any tips provided by a Customer to you and (ii) any damage charges we collect on your behalf.
Kandu, through its third party payment processor will be responsible for collecting payments owed to you by Customers as your limited payment collection agent and you agree that the receipt of such payments by Kandu satisfies the Customer’s obligation to you. Kandu expressly reserves the right to adjust or withhold all or a portion of such payment or other payment owed to you (except tips) provided that Kandu’ decision to adjust, deduct, or withhold payment shall be exercised in a reasonable manner and Kandu will take reasonable steps to remit such payments to you on a weekly basis, subject to Kandu’ reasonable business practices and events outside of Kandu’ reasonable control. You acknowledge and agree that all payments owed to you shall not include any interest and will be net of any amounts that Kandu may withhold. Kandu may suspend Technician or impose a monetary penalty on account of deficient or untimely Services.
By entering into this Agreement or using the Platform, whichever comes first, you agree to receive communications from us, including via email, text message, phone calls, and push notifications. You agree that texts, calls or prerecorded messages may be generated by automatic telephone dialing systems. Communications from Kandu, its affiliated companies and/or Technicians, may include but are not limited to: operational communications concerning your User account or use of the Kandu Platform or Services, updates concerning new and existing features on the Kandu Platform, communications concerning promotions run by us or our third-party partners, and news concerning Kandu. Standard text messaging charges applied by your cell phone carrier will apply to text messages we send. You may opt out of text message, phone call, and/or email correspondence at any time; however, you acknowledge that doing so may impact your ability to use the Platform.
Promotions and Discounts
Kandu, at its sole discretion, may make available promotions with different features to any Users or prospective Users. These promotions, unless made to you, shall have no bearing on your Agreement or relationship with Kandu. Kandu reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits or benefits obtained through a promotion in the event that Kandu determines or believes that the redemption of the promotion or receipt of the credit or benefit was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the applicable promotion terms or this Agreement.

Updated: February 5th, 2022.
This agreement is to be effective today by and between Taylor Development Group, LLC DBA Kandu, hereinafter "Kandu" or “Company” and the undersigned, hereinafter “Contractor”.
Now, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and mutual covenants herein contained, it is hereby agreed as follows:
Contractor shall be deemed an independent Contractor. Contractor shall be free to devote a portion of time, energy, and duties except those imposed by law or regulation and those specifically set out in this Agreement. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be regarded as creating a relationship (employer/employee, joint-venture, partnership, share-holder, etc) between the parties other than the Independent Contractor relationship as set forth herein.
Contractor is and shall be treated by Company as an Independent Contractor (statutory non-employee) and not an employee for state tax, federal tax, and all other purposes. Contractor hereby acknowledges that Contractor has been advised by the Company that as an Independent Contractor (non-employee), Contractor is responsible for the payment of Contractor’s own federal income taxes and Contractor’s own self-employment taxes (FICA) together with any and all corresponding state, county, and local taxes, if any, and Contractor hereby agrees to meet such responsibilities. Contractor hereby waives any claim Contractor has or may have now and in the future respecting such taxes or the right of the Company not to withhold, not to pay or not to contribute to taxes on behalf of Contractor.
Company agrees that in consideration of the service of the Contractor, it shall while Agreement remains in force, pay monies owed to Contractor on no less than a weekly basis.
Contractor shall complete any work assigned by Company in a prompt and workmanlike manner, consistent with customer needs and manufacturer guidelines.
Contractor shall warranty work performed for no less than 365 days from the date of completion. Contractor shall promptly resolve any warranty claims.
Contractor shall obtain the customers’ signature upon completion of Contractors’ work with a photo of the completed install. Failure to obtain the signature and photo may result in late payment or nonpayment of the invoice by the Company.
Contractor shall cooperate with Company and customer personnel.
Contractor shall promptly forward any customer complaint or concern to Company.
Contractor agrees that He or She possesses and will continue to possess general liability insurance, a valid driver’s license, and shall maintain automobile insurance in accordance with Company requirements.
Contractor agrees to keep a background check on file for any employees or subcontractors used to fulfill orders generated by Kandu. Contractors agrees that employees or subcontractors who have been convicted of a felony will not be utilized in the fulfillment of orders generated by Kandu. Contractor agrees that employees or subcontractors who have been convicted of a misdemeanor involving theft, fraud, violence, or sexual assault will not be utilized in the fulfillment of orders generated by Kandu.
Contractor shall have no right or authority, either expressed or implied, to assume or create, on behalf of the Company any obligation or responsibility of any kind or nature.
Contractor agrees that He or She will give notice of resignation to Company whenever there is intent to quit working with the Company as an independent contractor. This does not include short-term absence due to sickness or schedule conflicts that are clearly communicated to the manager. Contractor agrees further that not showing up for work when expected without prior and clear communication with manager, and without written notice of resignation, constitutes a breach of good-faith working relationship with the Company, and a breach of this agreement, and therefore, as a consequence, Contractor agrees to forfeit any pay earned that has not been paid.
CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION AND TRADE SECRETS
Contractor agrees that He or She will keep strictly confidential and will not reveal to any person, firm, organization, or corporation, in any manner whatsoever, any information concerning the Company’s trade secrets (including, without limitation, customers and prospective customer lists, service process, inventions and discoveries, patented or not, financial information and projections, or any other matter deemed confidential by the Company) without the express written consent of the Company. Contractor further agrees that upon leaving employment, Contractor will return any and all Company documents including copies, and property which would disclose any trade secrets as specified herein. Contractor acknowledges that all such information is unique and Contractor agrees that disclosure of such information would cause irreparable harm to the Company. Contractor understands that if Contractor violates this provision in any way, Contractor may be subject to a lawsuit for injunctive relief and may also be responsible for damages.
RETURN OF PROPERTY
Contractor agrees that upon termination of Contractor’s business relationship with the Company, Contractor will return to the Company any and all of its property in Contractor’s possession or control including, but not limited to, tools (purchased by the Company), part kits or repair parts, uniforms, and all manuals, printed material, writings and tangible forms of the information set forth in paragraphs 3 and 4 above. Contractor agrees that during Contractor’s employment, the Company may deduct from any payments due, amounts necessary to cover the value of Company furnished property to Contractor. The value of any property which is not returned in good condition shall be deducted from these monies owed to Contractor with any positive balance refunded to Contractor.

There is no reason for a Chargeback to ever be filed. If You think that Your credit card, debit card or Payment Method was used fraudulently on the Website, or if You want to cancel an order, or for any other concern, please contact us for immediate resolution. We will be happy to help You.
If We determine in Our reasonable discretion that a Chargeback is likely for any transaction, We may withhold the amount of the transaction until the expiration of the period during which the User may dispute the transaction, the Chargeback is processed, or We determine that a Chargeback will not occur.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express as payment methods. You must provide an authorization through clicking “I Agree” for every payment . Your authorization is a binding agreement for Us to charge Your card or Payment Method; and as such You waive any right to file a Chargeback for any cause, and agree to this Chargeback Policy.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT FILE A CHARGEBACK FOR ANY AMOUNTS CHARGED TO YOUR CREDIT, DEBIT CARD OR PAYMENT METHOD ON THE WEBSITE. If You want to dispute an order or charge, You agree to contact us directly, not file a Dispute or Chargeback.
If You file a Chargeback for a payment initiated by You or any authorized user of Your card or Payment Method, You agree that we may recover the amount of the Chargeback by any means deemed necessary, including, but not limited to, recharging Your card or Payment Method or having the amount recovered by a collection agency.
You understand and agree that in the event You initiate a Chargeback with a Payment Method provider for a Product or Service You have received and in fact owe payment for, and You are successful in recovering the disputed funds that would otherwise be owed to the Us, We will make every effort to provide documentation to the Payment Method provider that You did receive the Product or Service. We may in Our sole discretion dispute such Chargeback through all available means, including without limitation, by third-party debt collection services, in which event We shall be entitled to recover the cost of collection.
Further, We reserve the right to issue an invoice/send a bill to You for any and all Product or Service that We have sold and delivered to You. You hereby agree to pay the invoice or bill in full in the event that a Chargeback dispute is initiated. Should You fail to make appropriate payment, We shall pursue any and all available legal and equitable remedies available by law.
You acknowledge and agree that We will be entitled to recover any Chargebacks that may be imposed on Us by a Payment Method provider or third parties, plus associated fees, fines, expenses or penalties, as well as any processing or any other fees whatsoever incurred by Us on those Chargebacks, in addition to any other sums that may be due hereunder. We may recover these amounts by debiting Your account or setting off any amount owed to You.
You agree to assist Us when requested, at Your expense, to investigate Your transaction with regard to the Chargeback. You agree to cooperate and provide all information that We request from You for the purposes of investigating and/or contesting a Chargeback. We will send such requests to the email address that You provide to Us and You must provide a full response to the request within fourteen (14) days, unless another timeframe is specified in the request.
Notwithstanding the termination of the availability of the Website or Our Products or Services to You for any reason, We shall remain entitled to contest and recover Chargebacks from You (and, where if relevant, from any party who has provided Us with a guarantee or security relating to Your obligations under this Policy).
Return of “Product Not As Described”
You agree not to file a Chargeback for the reason of “Product Not As Described”. If You want to dispute an order or charge, You agree to file for a Return or Cancellation, not a Chargeback.
A fraudulent Chargeback occurs when a customer attempts to dispute a charge for a Product or Service that he/she has actually purchased. Attempting to dispute a valid credit card charge is fraudulent and is illegal. We do not tolerate Chargeback Fraud, and We follow the following procedure when it takes place:
If You attempt to dispute or deny a valid charge, We will first contact You directly, because most disputed charges occur as a result of the customers not recognizing Our charge on their statement. You will have ten (10) calendar days to reverse Your dispute upon receipt of Our e-mail, letter, or phone call.
If You do not reverse the dispute or otherwise attempt to resolve the situation, We will file a police report with Your local authorities and seek criminal charges against You.
Your account will be turned over to a collection agency, which will initiate collection activities as well as report Your account as delinquent to all of the major credit bureaus.
If You still do not resolve the situation by either reversing the dispute or reimbursing Us for the amount disputed plus Our bank fees, We will file a civil lawsuit against You for the amount disputed, for bank fees related to the Chargeback, for additional damages for the harm Your Chargeback causes to Our merchant credit record, and for punitive damages as the courts do not take credit card fraud lightly.
Chargeback Abuse Policy
You agree not to abuse any Payment Method provider’s Chargeback policy and this Chargeback Policy.
In the event that You have filed a Chargeback, and the Chargeback was resolved in Our favor by the Payment Method provider, You agree to terminate Your Chargeback with the Payment Method provider immediately, and You agree to reimburse Us for any costs incurred in researching and responding to such Chargeback, including without limitation, Our actual costs paid to the credit card processor or Our banks, other third parties, and the reasonable value of the time of Our employees and owners spent on the matter, as determined in Our discretion in good faith.
In the event that a Chargeback is placed or threatened on a purchase, We reserve the right to report the incident for inclusion in Chargeback abuser database(s) of Our choosing and in Our sole discretion. The information reported will include name, email address, order date, order amount, IP address, full address, and phone number. Being listed on such databases may make it more difficult or even impossible for the abuser to use credit card(s) on future purchases with Us or other merchants. Chargeback abusers wishing to be removed from the database shall make payment to Us for any outstanding amount owed to Us + $150 for processing and handling by wire transfer or such other means as We may require. All legal fees and collection fees accrued in the entire process will be added to the total collection amount owed by abuser.
ALL UNRESOLVED CHARGEBACK ABUSE ISSUES COMMITTED WILL IMMEDIATELY BE REPORTED TO MAJOR CREDIT BUREAUS, CHARGEBACK ABUSERS DATABASES, AND COLLECTION COMPANIES. THIS CAN SEVERELY DAMAGE CREDIT RATINGS FOR UP TO 7 YEARS.
If you have any questions or suggestions about our Chargeback Policy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 844-909-3765.
