The following terms and conditions, effective May 19, 2022, constitute the agreement applicable to the use of the Compare HVAC website, as agreed upon between its owner Oolong Media Inc. and the user thereof. By clicking on the “I agree” icon below, you acknowledge that you have read and accepted all of these terms and conditions. Please note that these terms and conditions of use may be modified at any time by Oolong Media Inc. Last update: May 15, 2022.
Compare HVAC offers you access to a service that collects the necessary information and puts you in contact with partners in order to facilitate access to quotes for contractors and more for the user.
Our mission is to save the user time and money by making it easy to find the service provider (contractor, electrician, insurer, financial advisor, building inspector, notary, real estate broker, etc.) that best suits your needs, our priority being to find the best price for you:
• Offering a 100% free and non-binding service to users;
• Collecting and distributing the information necessary for the preparation of quotes by the partners;
• Obtaining quick and competitive quotes by avoiding the repetition of steps for the user;
• Provide access to a network of professional partners
First of all, Oolong Media Inc. is not a broker registered with the Autorité des marchés financiers (hereinafter: the “Autorité”); it does not offer insurance brokerage services and does not hold any other title on behalf of insurance companies or financial products.
Oolong Media Inc. acts as an intermediary between the user and the partners and is only a tool for the collection and transmission of all the information required by all the partners to allow them to prepare and transmit a suitable quote to you.
Secondly, Oolong Media Inc. does not offer a recommendation service to do business with one partner rather than another. The choice to do business with a partner following the receipt of a quote depends entirely and solely on the user and it is the user’s responsibility to make the appropriate verifications with the Authority in order to ensure the compliance, legitimacy, and right to practice of the partner by consulting the registers and information made available by the Authority.
Indeed, before signing a contract with one of our partners, it is your responsibility to demand to see their permit from the AMF and to ask the right questions in order to fully understand their analysis of your needs.
Therefore, while Oolong Media Inc. makes every effort to connect the user with reputable and reliable partners, it cannot guarantee their qualifications, pricing, their work, and services offered. Oolong Media Inc. is not responsible for any damages resulting from a service agreement with one of our network partners. Please see the “Oolong Media Inc. Commitments and Limitation of Liability” section below for more information.
Finally, Oolong Media Inc. is not a party to any contractual agreements between partners and users and does not guarantee the accuracy of the quotes transmitted by our partners. Quotes must be validated with our partners. In addition, none of the following clauses shall bind Oolong Media Inc. or any of its shareholders, directors, employees, agents, assigns, officers or representatives to any obligations in connection with the execution of the brokerage mandates entered into with the partners.
“Compare HVAC” is not in any way connected with the “facebook.com” site or any of the services belonging to its network (including, but not limited to “Instagram”, “Occulus VR”, “WhatsApp”). “Compare HVAC” has not received any endorsement from Facebook Inc. nor does it intend to do so in the future.
Our “Compare HVAC” platform provides information that should not be taken as real advice from professionals in the fields of finance, heating and air conditioning, real estate, insurance, moving, etc. Our writers have researched their information to the best of their ability but errors can, however, appear in the text.
The mission of this platform is very simple: “We connect users who have filled out our forms on our site with our partners who are real estate brokers, life insurance brokers, damage insurance brokers, lawyers, appraisers, etc. Our partners hold the appropriate certifications to be professionals in their field. Our forms that provide users with quotes are completely free of charge and do not commit these users to anything.
In order to provide its services, Oolong Media Inc. must collect all the information necessary for the partners to be able to prepare a satisfactory quote that meets the user’s needs. Therefore, by accepting these terms and conditions, the user agrees to transmit all necessary personal or confidential information to Oolong Media Inc. via an online form, by phone, or by email.
Oolong Media Inc. reserves the right to remove any information submitted by the user where it has reason to believe that such information is in violation of these terms and conditions of use or infringes on the rights of third parties.
Any information submitted by the user may be modified or removed from the Compare HVAC database by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Oolong Media Inc. reserves the right to remove or modify the information requested within 15 days of receipt of such a request.
Information will not be made available to third parties, other than to Partners.
By including your phone number in the form and submitting it, you agree to be contacted by Oolong Media Inc. partners or validation team, even if you are on the National Do Not Call List. User also agrees to be contacted by the Partners by telephone, email, or text message to obtain further information necessary to prepare a quote tailored to User’s needs or to enter into a contract. If the Partners are unable to contact the User, the User understands that he/she will not be able to obtain quotes from the Partners.
The user is, at all times, responsible for the conformity and veracity of the information he/she transmits through the website. All information must be valid, complete, and up to date at the time of transmission. Otherwise, the penalties provided for below in the section “Prohibited Acts and Penalties for Violations” may be applied.
Oolong Media Inc. has the right but not the obligation to review information submitted by users of this site. Therefore, Oolong Media Inc. is not responsible for verifying the information submitted by the user and is not responsible for any effects or damages arising from the transmission or use of such information as further detailed in the section “Oolong Media Inc. Commitments and Limitations of Liability”.
