3. Use of the Website
Important - who you are contracting with
Primal Parking acts as a marketplace only in respect of advertising Spaces, introducing Users and facilitating the rental of such Spaces between Users ("Services").
By proceeding to use the Website, you accept that any contract and/or transaction that you enter into in respect of any Space will be on terms and conditions to be agreed between you and the relevant User. Users are wholly responsible for completing any and all transactions participated in pursuant to any introduction through the Website. Primal Parking provides a template document available for purchase for £30 to assist an Owner and a Parker reaching such agreement. Such document is a framework only and should be tailored to the particular needs of each User in a particular situation. The template document provided is in no way represented as being a document that is fit for purpose for any particular User, nor should it be deemed to offer any advice (whether legal or otherwise) to any User. You accept that we have not in any way selected or assembled your parking arrangements for you. You should carefully review any terms and conditions (including those contained in the template document) which may apply to the transaction. To fully understand your legal rights and obligations in respect of an arrangement reached with a User and/or in respect of the terms and conditions upon which you contract with another User, you should take independent legal advice.
If you purchase the template document as a consumer, you have the right to cancel the purchase of the template document for a period of 7 working days from making such purchase. To cancel such purchase you must email email@example.com. You will receive a full refund of the price you paid to the debit or credit card used to pay for the template document as soon as possible and in any event within 30 calendar days of the day you provide us with such written notice of cancellation. In the event that you cancel the purchase of the template document, you have no right to use the template document or any modification or variation thereof and are required to delete and/or destroy any such versions or copies of the same.
4. The Services
Owners register and add their advertisement of their Space to the Website. Registration of a Space is free but all Users remain responsible in all circumstances for the costs of accessing and using the Website.
Upon registration of a Space, the Owner may be assigned a unique 070 phone number (“Primal Parking Number”). The Space and Primal Parking Number are visible and allow other Users of the Website to enquire about the availability of the Space. The potential Parkers can search for Spaces and, upon finding a Space in which they are interested, can either: (i) call the Owner on the Owner’s Primal Parking Number; and/or (ii) contact the Owner via the direct messaging system on the Website. Primal Parking has no involvement in the posting and/or allotment of Spaces, process and terms to be agreed between an Owner and Parker.
THE PRIMAL PARKING NUMBER IS CHARGED AT A RATE OF 50 PENCE PER MINUTE. IT IS THE CALLER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO GET THE BILL PAYER'S PERMISSION BEFORE MAKING SUCH CALL. MAKING A CALL DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE AVAILABILITY OF THE SPACE AND/OR THE PROVISION OF THE SPACE BY THE OWNER TO THE USER AND IS MERELY A MEANS OF DIRECT ENQUIRY AS TO THE AVAILABILITY OF SUCH SPACE AND THE TERMS ON WHICH IT MAY BE PROVIDED BY THE OWNER TO THE PARKER. THE LENGTH OF CALL DEPENDS SOLELY ON THE OWNER AND PARKER AND PRIMAL PARKING HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE SAME. PARKERS HAVE THE OPTION OF CONTACTING THE OWNER FREE OF CHARGE VIA THE DIRECT MESSAGING SYSTEM ON THE WEBSITE HOWEVER THIS SYSTEM IS NOT INSTANTANEOUS AND LONGER DELAYS MAY RESULT.
Alternatively, for example when Primal Parking acts as an agent for another marketplace, the Space may be assigned an 0843 number. The Space and 0843 number are visible and allow other Users of the Website to enquire about the availability of the Space. The potential Parkers can search for Spaces and, upon finding a Space in which they are interested, can either: (i) call Primal Parking on the 0843 number; and/or (ii) contact Primal Parking via the direct messaging system on the Website. Primal Parking shall liaise between the Users to facilitate the rental of such Space between such Users. Primal Parking has no involvement in the posting and/or allotment of Spaces and/or terms to be agreed between an Owner and Parker. Any existing payments terms of the marketplace for which Primal Parking acts as an agent shall apply in respect of the provision of that Space and/or we will contact the User/s to make such arrangements/alternative arrangements in respect of such Space. An 0843 number is charged at a rate of 6 pence per minute. CALLS FROM MOBILES MAY BE CONSIDERABLY MORE. IT IS THE CALLER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO GET THE BILL PAYER’S PERMISSION BEFORE MAKING SUCH CALL. MAKING A CALL DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE AVAILABILITY OF THE SPACE AND/OR THE PROVISION OF THE SPACE BY THE OWNER TO THE USER AND IS MERELY A MEANS OF ENQUIRY AS TO THE AVAILABILITY OF SUCH SPACE AND THE TERMS ON WHICH IT MAY BE PROVIDED BY THE OWNER TO THE PARKER. PARKERS HAVE THE OPTION OF CONTACTING PRIMAL PARKING FREE OF CHARGE VIA THE DIRECT MESSAGING SYSTEM ON THE WEBSITE, HOWEVER THIS SYSTEM IS NOT INSTANTANEOUS AND LONGER DELAYS MAY RESULT.
Primal Parking reserves the right to: (i) issue a warning; (ii) suspend and/or (iii) deny or cancel access to the Website and/or the Services and to prevent or remove registration of a User, wherever and whenever Primal Parking believes (at Primal Parking's absolute discretion) that you are in breach of any of the Terms or it is otherwise in the best interest of other Users and/or Primal Parking to do so. Further, Primal Parking reserves the right to remove or disable any content or material including Spaces (temporarily or indefinitely) posted on the Website in its sole discretion.

IF YOU DECIDE TO USE THE TEMPLATE DOCUMENT, PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY, AND SEEK FURTHER ADVICE AS TO WHETHER YOU ARE LEGALLY ENTITLED TO ENTER INTO SUCH ARRANGMENT(S).
The inclusion of Spaces on the Website and/or the introduction of Users and/or facilitation of the rental of such Spaces does not constitute an express or implied endorsement or recommendation by Primal Parking of such Spaces and/or such Users and we make no representations about the suitability or availability of the Spaces offered through the Website. We cannot give any undertaking that Spaces you provide and/or acquire and Users with which you deal with through the Website will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are DISCLAIMED by us absolutely. This DISCLAIMER does not affect your statutory rights.
We undertake no responsibility for and are not liable for the misrepresentation, breach of contract, statutory duty or negligence of any of the Users including in connection with any services and/or Spaces booked pursuant to use of the Website.
