We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof.

PAYMENT AND HOLIDAY
iZero will collect payment from the employers on each worker's behalf. Payment will be made to the worker 30-37 days from the last day of the Project into each worker's nominated bank account.
Payments are made weekly every Friday, and are paid 1 month backdated, e.g. your first payment will be made to you approx. 1 month after you have worked your first shift.
We reserve the right to deduct any sums owed by a worker to iZero or a employer from any payments due to a worker should a worker cancel their shift and incur additional costs for iZero/employer as a result of their cancellation or due to lateness or leaving a shift early or if we have overpaid previously. This will appear under the deductions column on a payslip and appear as a new line on an invoice.
Workers are not permitted to take payment from employers directly and must direct any payment for their services to iZero for processing.
How payments work:
Every Monday at 6am, iZero will produce the worker invoices/payslips from works completed the previous week.
All worker invoices/payslips generated on the Monday will be scheduled for payment 25 days from the invoice date.
On the scheduled payment date, iZero will submit your payment to our payment provider Telleroo.
Telleroo pays the payments directly into the nominated bank account within 7 days.
Payslips are available via iZero (https://izero.work/financials).
Payslips and holiday pay for work completed on or before the 7th March 2022 will be available via our previous payroll provider Brightpay.
Because iZero employees work irregular hours that are inconsistent the holiday terms follow a 12.07% fee on every hour worked.
E.g If an employee works 10 hours, on a rate of £10 per hour * 12.07%. They will be entitled to £12.07 holiday pay.
As part of Government regulation, when claiming holiday pay employees must book the equivalent number of days off from working.
iZero allows employees to withdraw holiday pay in multiples of 8 hours, which constitutes 1 day. Alternatively employees can withdraw the total amount owed.
