Role of the adviqo UK Limited
6.1. Purchase - Sale of services
Through the platform, TheCircle offers Internet users the services offered by Providers.
In accordance with the General Conditions of Use, the User is informed that the contract has been concluded with TheCircle which is responsible for the performance of the service to the Provider chosen by the User.
TheCircle will then purchase any service requested from the Provider via the platform and resell it to the User.
For each service performed, TheCircle will receive the expected commission as agreed in advance with the Providers present on the platform.
6.2. Correctness, clarity, transparency
6.2.1. General provisions
As an online platform, TheCircle operates neutrally, clearly and transparently.
There is no dependency or subordination relationship between the adviqo UK Limited and the Providers which could influence the classification or visibility on the site of the individual services.
If the number of unique visitors exceeds five million per month, the adviqo UK Limited will adopt the system of best practice.
6.2.2. Online reviews
The User can leave a review on the service performed on the platform.
TheCircle hereby undertakes to provide fair, clear and transparent information on how reviews are posted and processed online.
TheCircle undertakes in particular to publish the date and any changes to the review.
In this regard, it should be noted that TheCircle has no control over the reviews.
In the event that TheCircle exercises control over the reviews, the company undertakes to ensure that the processing of personal data in this context complies with the EU Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).

A User who wishes to contact TheCircle regarding a review can write to the following email address: [email protected]
In the event of a relevant report, TheCircle undertakes to delete a review in the event that:
7.1. User obligations
The use of the THECIRCLE platform implies compliance by the User and the Provider with rules of conduct based on compliance with laws and regulations, ethical and moral values, such as mutual respect, courtesy, good faith and loyalty.
The use of the THECIRCLE platform also implies the observance of the principles established for this purpose by THECIRCLE regarding User moderation. In particular, all reviews which do not give an opinion on the consultation, but which contain direct questions or private contacts or references to identifiable third parties, are removed from the site. The review must exclusively concern the quality of the consultation in order to help other Users of the platform to choose their master.
A user, who has been reported on several occasions, may have their TheCircle account closed for inappropriate reviews.
The User and the Provider also undertake not to exchange personal contacts while providing the service or subsequently via review and/or email.
For this reason, the adviqo UK Limited recommends the User uses the services sensibly, namely:
The User and the Provider are solely responsible for the information they make available on the THECIRCLE platform. Consequently, they undertake to guarantee that the information they disseminate on the THECIRCLE platform does not break any laws or regulations in force and is correct and truthful
For this purpose, THECIRCLE reserves the unilateral right to:
It is forbidden for the User and the Provider to violate or try to violate the security and integrity of the platform. In particular, by way of example, but not exhaustively, it is prohibited to:
In the event of non-compliance with the above obligations, THECIRCLE reserves the right to terminate the contract automatically and subject in any case to THECIRCLE's right to compensation for damages.
The adviqo UK Limited reserves the right to suspend in whole or in part or to permanently interrupt access to the Platform and/or the use of the assistance services and/or to revoke the registration and enabling in the presence of just cause, without incurring any liability, and/or if the Internet user or the Provider is contested:
The adviqo UK Limited will inform the Internet user and/or the Provider of the disputed act or non-compliance, after simple online communication.
In the absence of justifications from the Internet user and/or Provider within 48 hours of issuing the THECIRCLE message, the suspension will be considered accepted by the Internet user and/or Provider.
However, at the invitation of the competent authority or if the adviqo UK Limited ascertains by any means an act or default by the Internet user and Provider which violates or which could violate the proper functioning or security of the network and/or its tools and/or Service, the adviqo UK Limited may proceed with immediate suspension, as a precautionary measure, without respecting the Internet user and/or Provider's notice procedure.
To the extent that the acts or default of the Internet user and/or Provider are the result of failure to comply with the provisions above, the adviqo UK Limited, in addition to suspending the provision of the Service, reserves the right in cases of serious default to legally terminate the contract and except in any case THECIRCLE’s right to compensation for damages.
In no case, can the adviqo UK Limited be held responsible for the total or partial suspension of the access to the Service of the Internet user and the Provider, nor for any damages caused directly or indirectly by the suspension and no indemnity will be due by THECIRCLE.
The adviqo UK Limited is not required to verify the information and contents accessible on the platform, nor to research facts or circumstances revealing illegal activities.
The Internet user and the Provider undertake to warn the adviqo UK Limited without delay of any infringements on the THECIRCLE platform of which the User becomes aware, consisting of facts or contents contrary to the laws and regulations in force, such as, by way of example, facts and/or content that:
The Internet user and/or the Provider undertake to report the infringement by immediately contacting THECIRCLE at the email address “[email protected]” and providing all the information needed to identify the content and/or the author of the infringement.
The Internet user and/or the Provider undertake to guarantee and indemnify the adviqo UK Limited from the consequences arising from any claims by third parties for a breach of the laws and regulations in force on intellectual and industrial property rights, inaccuracy or failed transaction.
The Internet user and/or the Provider undertake to provide full and total collaboration in the handling of any claim presented by third parties against the Internet user and/or the Provider.
7.2. TheCircle's obligations
With respect to the use of the features of the platform, the general obligation of TheCircle is an obligation of means and not an obligation of result or enforced means.
TheCircle undertakes to use all its means to ensure continuity of access and/or use of the platform 7 days a week and 24 hours a day.
However, TheCircle draws Users' attention to the fact that current online communication protocols do not guarantee the transmission of electronic exchanges (messages, documents, sender's or recipient's identity) in a certain and continuous manner.
As an online platform operator, TheCircle undertakes to convey clear, transparent and fair information on the manner of its interventions.
8.1. General principles and limits of TheCircle's liability
THECIRCLE cannot provide guarantees on the availability or performance of the platform and cannot be held responsible for any damage, even indirect, to the User and the Provider (including any loss of turnover or opportunity or lost earnings, loss of data, damage to the image, requests for compensation and/or claims by third parties) where there is a cause of force majeure or in the event of maintenance of the Service.
The User and the Provider formally acknowledge and accept that the adviqo UK Limited cannot be held directly or indirectly responsible for foreseeable or unforeseeable, direct and/or indirect damage suffered by the User and/or the Provider, in the following cases:
The service provided by THECIRCLE does not imply the obligation of guaranteeing the quality, reliability, timeliness or safety of the use of the Service, since this depends on tools and networks beyond THECIRCLE’s control.
User and Provider each undertake on their own and without any bond of solidarity to indemnify and hold TheCircle harmless from any claim, complaint, legal action of any kind for damages suffered as a result of using the Platform and/or carrying out the Transaction for which the direct responsibility of the Internet user and/or provider is judicially ascertained.
The User and the Provider acknowledge that the services subscribed via the platform, via the site TheCircle.it for the Internet user and through masters.TheCircle.it for the Provider, shall take place under their control and responsibility.
Consequently, THECIRCLE will not be in any way responsible for the use and content of the information disseminated and consulted by the User and the Provider.
The User and/or Provider are solely responsible for direct or indirect, material or immaterial damages and prejudices caused by the content of the information disseminated via the Service itself.
They also undertake to promptly inform the adviqo UK Limited by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt and/or by email at the address: [email protected] of any complaints, legal action, observed infringements, complaints directly or indirectly related to the provision or use of the Service that may be brought by third parties.
The User and/or Provider are solely responsible for damages, material or immaterial damage caused to the adviqo UK Limited due to bad or inadequate use of the Service. As the case may be, they undertake to guarantee, pay and indemnify the adviqo UK Limited against actions, demands, complaints and/or awards for damages and interest to which THECIRCLE may be exposed or be the subject of and/or may be pronounced against THECIRCLE since they may have their cause, basis or origin in the bad or inadequate use by the Internet user and/or the master and/or third parties of the Service and/or the Transaction.
Only the adviqo UK Limited, at its sole discretion in writing, will be able to fully or partially exempt the User and the Provider from their liability.
THECIRCLE cannot provide guarantees as to the availability or performance of the Platform and cannot be held responsible for any loss of revenue, loss of opportunity or business volume of the Provider/User.
Without prejudice to the provisions of the preceding paragraphs, THECIRCLE may in any case be called upon to compensate only direct and foreseeable damages, to be proven, within the limit of a value equal to £150 per Provider/User. This limit does not apply in cases of wilful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of THECIRCLE, in the event of physical damage or if the Internet user is a consumer in respect of whom the laws protecting them have been broken.
THECIRCLE undertakes to do everything possible to make the Tools accessible without interruption, except for any technical problems or maintenance operations necessary for their operation and except for cases of force majeure or events beyond THECIRCLE's control.
THECIRCLE does not guarantee that the files downloadable from the Site or through the Tools do not contain viruses, worms, Trojan horses and any other element that could threaten or alter the tools of the Providers/Users. It is the responsibility of the Provider/User to take the necessary precautions to meet their needs relating to the accuracy of incoming and outgoing data and to use a system external to the Site to recover any lost data.
In any case, THECIRCLE cannot be held responsible, in the following cases:
The Provider/User is solely responsible for any damage caused by the use of a Tool and it is their responsibility to carry out the regular saving on their data and content materials. Should THECIRCLE be liable for damages generated by a problem relating to the Tools, it will be liable within the limit of a value equal to £150 per Provider/User, except in cases of wilful misconduct or gross negligence by THECIRCLE, in the event of physical damage or if the Internet user is a consumer in respect of whom the legal provisions for their protection have been violated.
In the case of invitation by the Provider/User of third parties, the Provider/User is solely responsible for the use of their personal data, TheCircle not being responsible for the contacts made by the Master/User, whatever tool is used.
TheCircle will not be in any way responsible for promotional offers sent on the initiative of Masters
8.2. Status of Host
The user acknowledges that TheCircle acts as a Host
In this regard, TheCircle reserves the right to remove any content that has been reported to it and which it deems expressly illegal
Reporting of expressly illegal content must be submitted by a User or a third party by email to the address [email protected] or by registered mail with return receipt to the following address: adviqo UK Limited, TheCircle, 117 Waterhouse Business Park, Chelmsford, CM1 2QE, United Kingdom.
The notification, in order to become valid, must contain the following elements:
TheCircle will not be liable in the event of failure or delay in the execution of one of the obligations described herein due to force majeure.
In the contractual context, force majeure is understood as a fact outside the sphere of control of the debtor, unforeseeable at the time of concluding the contract, the effects of which cannot be prevented in any way and which causes the debtor to fail to fulfil their obligations.
If the impossibility is only temporary, the debtor, as long as it lasts, is not responsible for the delay in the non-fulfilment unless the delay justifies the termination of the contract. If the impossibility is definitive, the contract is terminated and the parties can consider themselves free from the obligations. In this regard, TheCircle waives all liability in the event of an attack by hackers, unavailability of materials, supplies, spare parts, personal equipment or otherwise, and interruption, suspension, reduction of electricity or any problem related to it, any interruption of electronic communication networks, any circumstance or fact outside TheCircle's sphere of control which arises following the conclusion of the contract and which prevents its fulfilment under normal conditions. It should also be noted that, in one of the situations described above, the User cannot claim the payment of any indemnity and cannot lodge an appeal against TheCircle. In the event of one of these events occurring, TheCircle will try to inform the User as soon as possible.
In the presence of just cause or in the event of technical problems which require it and which cannot be resolved otherwise, the adviqo UK Limited reserves the right to suspend all or part of access to the Service and for the duration necessary to carry out the adequate maintenance operations of the network and/or its components and software.
The technical support of the adviqo UK Limited will inform the Internet user or the master of any major interruption or reduction of the service, as well as of the interventions in progress, until the end of the interruption or reduction of the Service.
Given that the Service rendered by TheCircle is to be understood as an obligation of means, the company THECIRCLE cannot guarantee, in any case, a term for the resumption of the Service.
To answer the Internet user's and/or the master's technical questions and help them solve any malfunctions related to the use of software used by the adviqo UK Limited, the latter provides a support service which the Internet user and the Provider can contact to report any problems, by contacting the following numbers:
THECIRCLE will provide technical support on working days from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5pm, it being understood that the adviqo UK Limited is bound by an obligation of means and not of result.
In the event of an unscheduled interruption in the provision of the Service, during which the User will not be able to access or use the Service due to the problem observed, unless this depends on force majeure, the User may submit a refund request for the part of their lump sum or pro-rata time of the interruption.
The indemnity will be paid by THECIRCLE within 30 days of receipt of the request which must be submitted in writing by the User within 30 days of the interruption.
The Internet user acknowledges that the services subscribed to on the platform are under their control and responsibility. Consequently, the adviqo UK Limited will not be held responsible for the use and content of the information disseminated.
In the event of dissatisfaction on the part of the Internet user with the Service (Transaction) provided by the Advisor, the Internet user cannot make objections in order to avoid or delay the payment of the Provision or Service.
In the event of a dispute, the Internet user and the Advisor may, if they consider it appropriate, report its presence to the adviqo UK Limited’s Client Services, which will work towards an amicable solution to the dispute between the Advisor and the Internet user.
In the event of no agreement within three months of the request sent to TheCircle for intervention for an amicable settlement, the Internet user and the Advisor will be able to initiate, if they wish, the actions they deem most appropriate against the party deemed to be in breach
It is understood that the adviqo UK Limited, a third party with respect to the Transaction between the Internet user and the Advisor, cannot be called to answer with regard to the quality, price, nature, reliability and accuracy of the service provided by the Advisor, held directly and exclusively to be liable to the Internet user for its Service.
