About Hello Jeffrey

Hello Jeffrey is a marketplace that allows users to post events allowing other users to commit for hire for specified job functions in a variety of pricing formats and locations. As a marketplace, Hello Jeffrey does not take ownership or responsibility for items listed on this site, so the actual contract for hire is directly between the hosts and staff. Hello Jeffrey is not a traditional auctioneer.

While we may provide pricing, quantities, and other guidance in our Services, such guidance is solely informational and you may choose not to follow it. Also, while we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through various programs, Hello Jeffrey has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of user to host events; the ability of staff to work at events; or that a host or staff will actually complete a transaction.
