These general terms and conditions of service define the general framework applicable to the Users of the Site, subject to any special conditions applicable. The use of the Site is subject to these general conditions. By adhering to these conditions, Users declare that they accept all the general terms and conditions of service without reservation. Accordingly, signing and/or validation of online registration screens implies the acceptance by the User of these general and special conditions. Any connection and use of the KOKOLOSA Services is subject to compliance with these general and special conditions, and User can download them from the Site www.kokolosa.com. KOKOLOSA reserves the right to assign and/or transfer to third parties all or part of the rights and obligations arising from this relationship between Users and KOKOLOSA.
KOKOLOSA has developed and designed an online digital platform accessible through the Internet, which allows all Users to get in touch with each other, Customers to interact with other Customers and Experts and to buy answers from Experts. The use of the platform is accessible through the Site www.kokolosa.com. The access to the Site is absolutely voluntary and it gives the user, depending on the case, the status of Expert and/or Customer. The Site has purely informative and educational purposes, as it allows Customers to ask questions and Experts to respond. The Experts, upon acceptance, decide which questions they want to answer in the times and ways indicated on the Site. In particular, KOKOLOSA provides the Customer and the Expert with a personal and non-transferable license to use the Services on the Site, as well as a support service. The role of KOKOLOSA is to act as a technical intermediary in order to provide a virtual space that allows Customers to access the performance of the Experts and the Experts to provide their Services. KOKOLOSA is therefore not a contractual party for the conclusion and execution of the performance between Expert and Customer. Please note that KOKOLOSA is not involved in any way in the conversations between Customers and Experts, and it associates with automated procedures the Customer to the Expert and it does not recommend or compel Customers to contact some Experts in particular. The Customer shall read the conditions carefully before accessing and using any services of the Website under his sole responsibility. The use of this Site implies full acceptance of the provisions included in these "Conditions" in the version published on the Site when the Customer accesses it. The use of this Site (particularly the access to your personal account, the management and modification of your data or the information that the portal offers to companies or studies) implies that Customer accepts the publication on the Site. The Experts are not employees or agents of KOKOLOSA but they are independent service providers who use the Site to sell their knowledge and competence through answers to the Customers, and as such together with them, are to be considered Users of the Site. The services provided are not an emergency service, in other words they are not addressed to situations requiring immediate intervention. Actually, in these cases, it is useful to make use of emergency centres and/or their local authorities. The services cannot also be provided in cases of severe depression, suicidal thoughts or intentions aimed at harming oneself or others. The Customer assumes full responsibility for the use of our service. The Customer acknowledges and understands that KOKOLOSA cannot alter, modify, filter, approve or guarantee the content of messages. KOKOLOSA is not in any way responsible for any acts or omissions of the Experts, contained in the messages, or the ability of the Experts to answer questions. We cannot guarantee that an Expert will complete the transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, KOKOLOSA reserves the right, but it is not obliged, to refuse to publish or remove any content and/or to prevent the Customer from accessing the Site. The Customer and the Expert acknowledge that the obligations assumed by KOKOLOSA constitute obligations of means and not of results and that the conclusion of the transaction through the Platform commits the Customer and the Expert to pay what is due to KOKOLOSA for the service provided.
The use of KOKOLOSA implies the prior and regular registration to the Platform and the Site, which is mandatory for each Customer. To this end, the Customer must communicate to KOKOLOSA, in a truthful and correct manner, his/her personal data and any information deemed useful or necessary by the Site operator for his/her exact identification. The Customer, in the event that a change is necessary, must update his/her information accurately and completely. In the event that the Site Operator deems it necessary and appropriate, the Customer may be removed from the platform immediately. Access credentials are strictly personal and intended for private use only. It is the Customer's responsibility to take the necessary precautions to protect such information. The Customer therefore undertakes not to communicate these data in any way to third parties. The Customer is the sole responsible for their custody and shall be responsible for the use and conduct of anyone who accesses his/her Personal Account, even without his/her knowledge. The Customer undertakes to immediately modify his/her Access Credentials if he/she believes that their security has been compromised or if an unauthorized person has or may have had actual or potential access to his/her Credentials. The Customer must also immediately inform KOKOLOSA, which, following the notification and as a precautionary measure, will suspend access to the Service by means of the credentials in question. KOKOLOSA reserves the right to ask Customers to modify all and/or part of the Access Credentials, if necessary or appropriate for regulatory, technical or security reasons, without the Customer being able to object and/or claim any compensation.
It is expressly understood that KOKOLOSA will not assume any responsibility in relation to the activities that will be carried out by the Expert or Users through the IT services made available on the Site and in reference to all collateral activities related to the same, none excluded, including those relating to any external relations that may arise as a result of the contact on the Site.
The Site is a forum on the Internet and the information contained in the questions, answers, profiles and comments posted on the Platform is not confidential and other people can read, collect and use it. For example, search engines are able to index questions, answers and other publications to allow them to appear in search engine results. To protect privacy, Customer may use an anonymous name that does not include information about his/her identity.
The Expert shall be solely responsible to the Customers for the skills and abilities declared and no objection may be raised against KOKOLOSA for the accuracy, correctness, completeness of the contents of the responses and/or for failure to update the professional profiles of the Experts published on the Website, except in cases in which the Expert has made an express request for updating at www.kokolosa.com and the latter has not promptly complied with it. Each Expert, depending on the declared competences and the selected field, receives credentials for the categories in which he answers the questions. Experts' credentials can be verified directly on their profile. If it does not appear, the Expert is not checked. The sole purpose of using the term KOKOLOSA Expert on the Site is to identify the users of the Site who answer the questions and not to guarantee a certain level of knowledge, experience or reliability of the same. Please note that KOKOLOSA is not able to verify the credentials and/or identity of the Experts. Therefore, KOKOLOSA does not guarantee or ensure the truthfulness or accuracy of credentials or the identity of the Experts and the information provided by them. The Customer acknowledges that KOKOLOSA will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by reliance placed on any information or content contained in the messages and answers formulated by the Expert.
The answers provided by the Experts will have informative, educational and formative content. The content of the answers provided by the Experts, under no circumstances, may replace a consultation, examination or diagnosis of a Professional. Any invitation and/or suggestion to use the Services shall not imply KOKOLOSA in the provision of the Services. The answers provided by the Experts must be used by Customers for information purposes and do not replace, in any case, the evaluation of a Professional (medical, legal, veterinary, fiscal, financial, etc...). For example, legal experts will only provide general information about the law and will not provide legal advice. Medical and veterinary Experts shall only provide general information, which shall not be medical advice or medical diagnostic or curative instructions and no doctor-patient relationship shall be established through the answers provided by the Expert. The answers provided by the Expert must not in any case replace the advice, examination, diagnosis or professional treatment received by a doctor. By answering the questions, the Experts do not intend to establish any kind of relationship between lawyer-client or doctor-patient relationship with the Customers of the Site and in any case any kind of professional-client relationship shall be deemed established on the Site. Laws, regulations, other government authorities, rules, practices and procedures applicable to your question in particular may vary depending on your location or country. Communications on the Site are non-confidential and must not be subject to any associated privileges. KOKOLOSA does not guarantee the originality of the answers provided by the Experts, therefore, it cannot be considered responsible in case of plagiarism or in case third parties claim authorship of works covered by copyright. In any case, the Expert is exclusively and directly responsible for the activities provided to the Customer and financial and non-financial damages can only be claimed against him/her.
The Customer may be required to provide more information to the Expert to enable him/her to satisfy his/her requests in the best possible way. Once the Expert has answered the question, the Customer will be asked to evaluate his/her performance on a scale of 1 to 5, as well as explain why he/she is not satisfied with the answer, to allow the Expert to improve. KOKOLOSA, in any case, does not guarantee for the reply of the Experts nor for Customer satisfaction. The Customer must inform KOKOLOSA of any failure by the Expert to reply.
KOKOLOSA, allows interaction between Customers and Experts and a paid service that allows the former to formulate questions and the latter to answer. It facilitates interaction between Customers and Experts by online chat, email and online forum. The costs of the Services will be visible on the Site and will vary depending on the features/benefits of the reply selected by the Customer. The Customer acknowledges that the contact does not constitute acceptance of an offer and that the conclusion of the transaction is subject to acceptance by the Expert, who is in no case obliged to accept all the requests for contact addressed to him or her.
KOKOLOSA makes available to Users a Digital Platform and a free Chat on the Site. Users, subject to confirmation of the username and password previously assigned to them, may, by accessing the Community, create their own profile, and through Chat they may interact with each other, exchange messages, express opinions and share impressions about activities and/or services on the Site.
