Users of the Services offered by Timerepublik acknowledge and accept these terms and conditions.
Via Greina, 2

Timerepublik is a service devoted to promoting the sharing economy and the exchange of favors and skills between its Users. Users offer their unique skills in exchange for time units of other Users.
Users may use the time units found in their own wallet (time wallets) to ask for help from other Users for an amount of time equal to that obtained by providing help and favors. To obtain time credits Users may offer their help or favors and skills to other Users or, alternatively, perform certain actions (eg. invite other friends to sign up to the service, enhance their profile etc.). These actions are specifically outlined on the home page.
Favor exchanges in between Users via Timerepublik do not trigger any monetary compensation.
As under the existing regulations in Switzerland Users being citizens from the EU-25/EFTA area carrying out cross-border services may be subject to notification requirements of their activity. To avoid the risk of incurring sanctions, it is recommended that Users consult the website of the Swiss Confederation, in particular the link concerning the requirement of notification, before providing their own activity.
Moreover, Users being third-country nationals should always ensure that they have a permanent admission on the regular labor market of a EU-25/EFTA Member State.
Users who are citizens of Bulgaria and Romania are kindly asked to verify the possession of a valid residence permit.
In any case Timerepublik and their organs, employees, directors and consultants specifically disclaim any and all responsibility for any consequences of non-compliance with the rules on cross-border labor by foreign nationals on Swiss soil. Timerepublik does not provide or otherwise support, brief and advise about the obtaining of the necessary permits and authorizations. Users are strongly advised to verify the fulfillment of the necessary legal obligations with the competent authorities.
