The Booking System
Through the Service, Professional Users gain access to a web-based platform where Customers can make bookings and cancellations in relation to the Professional User’s treatments (”the Booking System”). The Booking System makes it possible for the Professional User to gain an overview of booked appointments and available times.
Booking and cancellation
Via the Booking System, Customers who use the Service are able to book appointments for beauty-related services and treatments provided by Professional Users of the Service. Bookings made by Customers are then available to the Professional User via the Professional User’s user account. It is the responsibility of the Professional User to maintain an overview of their bookings and cancellations and to keep the Booking System up to date. Unless otherwise agreed, Customers may cancel treatments without a cancellation fee up to 24 hours prior to the appointment.* If the Customer cancels a treatment less than 24 hours prior to the appointment, the Customer will be charged 100% of the total fee for the appointment. It is the responsibility of the Professional User to notify the Customer if the Professional User needs to cancel the Customer’s appointment. It is the Professional User who is liable for any damages, direct and indirect costs, and other claims arising due to the fact that the Professional User has cancelled an appointment or has in some other way been responsible for failure to perform the treatment booked by the Customer. This is further clarified below under the section entitled “Cancellation fee”. However, please note that if, as a Customer, you have chosen to use Klarna for payment of your treatment in connection with your booking, you should instead contact us at Dashl directly in relation to any issues regarding a booking or cancellation. We at Dashl will also contact you if the salon or the Professional User needs to cancel a booked appointment for a treatment. * For package bookings, company bookings and wedding bookings, the Customer must cancel the booking at least 14 days prior to the date of the booked treatment in order to receive a full refund.
User Account and User Profile
Your User Profile
In order to ensure that our Users are able to derive the greatest possible benefit from the Service, it is necessary for Professional Users to provide the following information in their User Profile:
- information about the Professional User and their business, such as company name, corporate ID number, website, contact details and address;
- information about the beauty-related services and treatments they provide;
- other information that must be provided pursuant to applicable law or may otherwise be relevant for Customers.
Obligations and guarantees on the part of Professional Users
As a Professional User of the Service, you guarantee that:

Penalties/sanctions for Professional Users due to cancellation of Customer bookings
If a Professional User needs to cancel a Customer booking, the Professional User shall contact the Customer and move the Customer’s appointment to another date and time that suits both the Customer and the Professional User. The Professional User shall also contact Dashl to see if there is another stylist available who can help the Customer on the agreed date and time. If it is not possible to rearrange the Customer’s booking in this manner, the Customer’s appointment must be cancelled. As a cancellation could impact the Customer’s plans and also affects credibility within Dashl’s community, the following penalties/sanctions are applied in connection with a cancellation:
Dashl may refrain from charging the cancellation fee, depending on how many times the Professional User has already cancelled a Customer booking. Otherwise, the following fee will be deducted from the next payment made to the Professional User following a cancellation. The size of the fee to be deducted depends on when the Professional User approved the booking, and how soon thereafter the Customer’s booking was cancelled.
- If the booking is cancelled more than 7 days prior to the appointment, Dashl will deduct a fee of SEK 250 from the next payment made to the Professional User.
- If the booking is cancelled less than 7 days prior to the appointment, Dashl will deduct a fee of SEK 500 from the next payment made to the Professional User.
Suspension of account
If the Professional User has cancelled 3 bookings within the space of one year, Dashl has the right to suspend their account. This means that the Professional User will not appear in the search results for searches performed by Customers on Dashl.se, and that the Professional User’s calendar will remain blocked for 3 months.

Intellectual Property Rights regarding User-generated Material
The right of ownership in relation to all User-generated Material belongs to you, or to the third party that owns the intellectual property rights regarding such User-generated Material. You hereby grant us a worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, free-of-charge and transferable right to possess, process, amend, store, publish, distribute, stream, transfer, play, recode, copy, present, display and otherwise use User-generated Material to provide and market the Service, or any of our other existing or future products or other services. You guarantee that you own or possess all necessary rights to display and upload User-generated Material, to use User-generated Material in other ways, and to grant us a license to User-generated Material in accordance with the above.

We will strive to ensure that the Service and our Professional Users are marketed in the best possible manner. For marketing purposes, you, as a Professional User, give us the right to use your name and company name or other identifiers as a reference and in marketing of the Service, or any of our other existing or future products or other services, irrespective of media. By uploading User-generated Material containing your name or image in the Service, you, as a Customer or Professional User, consent to our use of your name and your image for marketing purposes. Pursuant to the Swedish Act on Names and Pictures in Advertising (1978:800), Users who upload User-generated Material to the Service undertake to ensure that, in relation to any such User-generated Material containing the name or image of an identifiable person, consent has been obtained from the identifiable person to use their name and image for marketing purposes. By joining the Service, Professional Users undertake to contribute to the production and provision of images and videos for the Service in connection with bookings made and performed through the Service. Professional Users have a responsibility in relation to Dashl AB to tag @dashl.se or refer to dashl.se in connection with the dissemination of images and videos produced in conjunction with Customer bookings made and performed via the Service.

Customers do not pay for their use of the Service. Treatments that are booked through the Service must be paid for and booked within the Service. Within the framework for the Service, we undertake, on behalf of Users, to facilitate and monitor payment for bookings of treatments. For each transaction that is transacted via the Service, we charge the Professional User a transaction fee in accordance with the applicable price list at any given time. The applicable price list is available to the Professional User via their User Account. As a Customer, you have the choice of different methods of payment when paying for your treatment in connection with your booking. You may pay in advance with a credit or debit card, or you may use Klarna’s payment service. If, as a Customer, you have chosen to pay in advance with a credit or debit card, you are responsible for such payment in relation to the relevant Professional User, and the Professional User is ultimately responsible in relation to you as the Customer with regard to issues relating to booking, cancellation and complaints. If, as a Customer, you have instead chosen to use Klarna as your payment method, you are responsible for such payment in relation to Dashl, and Dashl is ultimately responsible in relation to you as the Customer with regard to issues relating to booking, cancellation and complaints. The Customer must make advance payment or payment via Klarna in connection with their booking. Every 14 days, we will send a statement of account to the Professional User and will process the payment (after deduction of transaction fees) to the Professional User. If a Customer cancels a booking made through the Service at least 24 hours prior to the appointment, we reserve the right to refund the entire payment amount to the Customer.
Complaints must be submitted within 5 days of the visit. In connection with a Customer complaint, it is obligatory to make a personal visit to the Beauty Bar or, alternatively, to the salon or the professional practitioner who has performed the treatment, so that an assessment can be performed. Alternatively, you can send an image via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We follow the guidelines of ARN (the Swedish National Board for Consumer Disputes) in relation to all Customer complaints, and you will be offered possible dates and times for corrective treatment within one week. No refunds will be paid regardless.
