c. By using your Account, you can post a request for the type of service desired (“Service Request”). A qualified person/entity offering your desired Service (“Service Expert”) will respond to your request and provide details of when and how the Service Request will be addressed.

You acknowledge that the lag in time is owing to Mink Pedlars’ reasonable efforts to ensure availability of the Service Expert to address the Service Request.

Mink Pedlars will then provide the details of the Service Expert to you and will send the Service Expert to the location specified by the User to address the Service Request.
