Overview of our Services

To ensure the quality of the busyebee experience we have set up our terms of service for our mutual benefit. If you violate these rules it will mean you’ve broken the terms of service and this may result in a termination of your account.

Tasks and concierge requests are non-transferable. You cannot sell or give away hours on your plan but you are more than free to buy a plan for your friends, family and loved ones.  Your busyebee account is also non-transferable. That means if one person signs up, you cannot transfer ownership of that account to another person.

All busyebee plans are governed by a monthly hour limit by plan type. If these hours are unused by the next billing cycle, the hours will not carry over to the next cycle.

All busyebee plans are recurring, monthly subscriptions, which can be cancelled at any time.

Any agreement or attempted agreement between client and assistant, in connection with a service contract, requiring that payment be made outside of busyebee shall constitute a material breach of this agreement and be subject to cancellation without refund.

Requests 

Each request must be submitted by phone or email. Please send your requests individually: this means that each communication you have with your assistant should contain one, defined, task. You’re more than welcome to submit multiple tasks at one time, but we ask that you create a separate email or phone communication for each. This ensure the fastest possible turn around for your request.

Our Clients will often submit requests for things that fall outside the scope of services  (for example: requests that are more so projects than tasks or requests that are beyond our typical service offerings). In this case, those requests may be considered under our design or events categories.

If you ever feel like your service could be better, you can contact us by telephone or email us at info@BusyeBee.com. For a list of examples tasks that we will and won’t do, please consult the “services ” page or feel free to submit for a quote via the quote button or email. That should give you a good idea of what we’re able to accomplish and what we simply cannot do. Agreeing to this terms of service means you understand and agree to keep your tasks within the scope of our business.

Refunds, Payments & Installment Arrangements

Refunds for services associated to design related tasks in which payments are required to initiate a project will not be granted unless a constructed design has not been presented to the client. Refunds for Administration/Assistant related services are also not refundable unless the outcome and/or result of said that service is determined to be the exclusive fault of busyebee, its contracted members or partners. In any case in which a refund is considered, the terms and provisions as outlined in busyebee’s “Guarantee and Warranty” clause will also be considered.  Services by busyebee, inc. are considered “at risk” services and any payments issued to busyebee, inc. are not guaranteed due these conditions.

Payments on installment arrangements for Creative Design Services (logo’s, website’s, landing pages & graphics) must be initiated on the first day of the month following the day in which the Customer has been provided with proof of completed work and has communicated acceptance either verbally or in written format. Failure to remit installment payments by midnight of the said due date will result in a discontinuance of the installment arrangement and the payee/customer will be required to remit the total remaining balance of the project prior to receiving or having access to the final project.

Design Projects (Web-Graphic-Creative)

All design related projects (web/graphic/creative) are required to be paid in full prior to our beginning the project if the project cost or fee is $75 or less. All design related projects $76 or over require a deposit of half the total over-all fee/cost prior to our beginning work on the project. The remaining balance is to be paid once the project is completed. Website design projects will not be visible to the online public or set to ‘live” until all remaining balances and/or invoices have been paid.

Revisions- Each revision consists of 60 minutes of actual project work-time. Free project revisions if provided by busyebee, Inc to a client are limited to two revisions over-all at a total maximum of 120 minutes of actual project work-time. Revision/edit requests that exceed either the paid revision or free revision limitations are billed/invoiced separately.

Minor edits & post project maintenance: Minor edits as specified by busyebee, Inc are defined as written content text changes, image replacements or theme related adjustments that require no more than fifteen minutes of actual project work-time per 24 hours. Any post design production maintenance requests that exceed fifteen minutes per 24 hours are considered add-on tasks/projects and will be billed/invoiced separately.

Terms- Security

Sharing sensitive information with your busyebee.

We support the sharing of credit cards, passwords and other sensitive data when you work with a dedicated busyebee through our partnership with LastPass. Using LastPass’ advanced encryption technology and cloud-based data storage, your assistant is able to securely store your sensitive data and use it to access an account, make a purchase, or contact a third party on your behalf.

Getting Set Up

  • Call your busyebee today – To share credit card information, passwords, and other sensitive data, simply have your busyebee collect your information over the phone. This way, we can ensure your information remains safe. At busyebee, we are committed to the security of your account!
  • Bank-grade security in the cloud – Your sensitive data is encrypted and stored securely in the cloud.

Technology

Read more about LastPass’ state-of-the-art technology and security measures below:

LastPass is an evolved Host Proof hosted solution, which avoids the stated weakness of vulnerability to XSS as long as you’re using the add-on. LastPass strongly believes in using local encryption, and locally created one way salted hashes to provide you with the best of both worlds for your sensitive information: Complete security, while still providing online accessibility and syncing capabilities. We’ve accomplished this by using 256-bit AES implemented in C++ and JavaScript (for the website) and exclusively encrypting and decrypting on your local PC. No one at LastPass can ever access your sensitive data. We’ve taken every step we can think of to ensure your security and privacy.

Security Measures

Our thorough hiring and screening process includes state and national background checks and social identity verification. Each busyebee signs a  confidentiality agreement with busyebee to protect the privacy of every client. We believe that the cornerstone to any successful relationship is trust—this is why we take security and discretion so seriously and ensure that each busyebee knows how to properly store and handle their clients’ sensitive data.

For your safety we require written confirmation on all purchases over $500 and we restrict purchases over $2500 USD. This means if you need your busyebee to purchase a flight for over $500 they will first have to send back a summary of the purchase. Once buseybee receives confirmation of this summary (this can be as simple as “okay”) they can then make the purchase. We realize this may slightly lengthen the booking process, but we do so to protect you from small oversights that can lead to costly mistakes.
