Whether you’re a Skip customer, a restaurant, store or vendor and its staff, or an independently contracted courier, you’re a user of the Skip network—and we aim for all users to have a positive experience. This Social Code establishes standard conduct for all users and works towards ensuring a positive experience for all on the Skip network.
Safe & Respectful Network
We’re committed to promoting safety and respect across the Skip network. As a Skip user, we expect you to do your part by following all the laws and requirements that might apply to you, as well as this Social Code. When we each do our part to make the Skip network a positive experience, we’re all the better for it.
We do not tolerate potentially fraudulent activity or fraud on the Skip network, and reserve the right to temporarily or permanently remove your access to the network if you are suspected of fraudulent behaviour. This may include abusing refunds or promotions; unwarranted disputes of credit card charges; or any attempts to “game” the network for your own benefit.
You’re expected to act in good faith and fairness with other Skip users. Concealment, manipulation, abuse of personal information, misrepresentation, and other unfair practices will not be tolerated.
Forced labor or servitude is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights, and we take a zero-tolerance stance. The use of forced or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, is strictly prohibited on the Skip network. If you are found to be engaged in any form of forced or compulsory labor, servitude and/or human trafficking, we reserve the right to remove your access to the Skip network and may pursue legal action and/or inform the authorities.
As a Skip user, you are expected to put your best foot forward while using the Skip network by conducting yourself in a professional, courteous, and respectful manner.
