EXCLUSIVITY AND NON-CIRCUMVENTION
You acknowledge and agree that a substantial portion of the compensation Copybreeze receives for making the Site available to you is collected as a Service Fee described in the foregoing subsection titled "Service Fee." Copybreeze only deducts this Service Fee when a Client pays and a Freelancer receives payment through the Site. Therefore, for 24 months from the time you identify or are identified by any party through the Site (the "Exclusivity Period"), you must use the Site as your exclusive method to request, make, and receive all payments for work directly or indirectly with that party or arising out of your relationship with that party (the "Copybreeze Relationship").
Non-Circumvention. You agree not to circumvent the Payment Methods offered by the Site. By way of illustration and not in limitation of the foregoing, you must not:
i. Submit proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, hire, manage, or pay outside the Site.
ii. Accept proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, deliver services, invoice, or receive payment outside the Site.
iii. Invoice or report on the Site an amount lower than that actually agreed between Client and Freelancer.
You agree to notify Copybreeze immediately if another person improperly contacts you or suggests making or receiving payments outside of the Site. If you are aware of a breach or potential breach of this non-circumvention policy, please submit a confidential report to Copybreeze by sending an email message to us at Customer Support on hello@Copybreeze.com
YOU AGREE NOT TO RELY ON THE SITE, THE SITE SERVICES, ANY INFORMATION ON THE SITE OR THE CONTINUATION OF THE SITE. THE SITE AND THE SITE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. Copybreeze MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH REGARD TO THE SITE, THE SITE SERVICES, WORK PRODUCT, USER CONTENT, OR ANY ACTIVITIES OR ITEMS RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TERMS OF SERVICE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, Copybreeze DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, AND WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW FOR ALL OF THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS ON WARRANTIES, SO TO THAT EXTENT, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Freelancer agrees that when a Client pays a Freelancer or funds related to a Job are otherwise released to a Freelancer, Copybreeze will first deduct up to 14% service fee for creating, hosting, maintaining, and providing the Site Services and then credit the balance into the Freelancer’s Account. Client and a Freelancer are obligated to use the Site to pay and receive payment for Freelancer Services if they identified each other through the Site, as detailed in Section 7 titled "Exclusivity and Non-Circumvention," below.
Copybreeze reserves the right to introduce a new component in, or convert any present component of, the Site Service into a paid service and introduce a subscription based mechanism. Copybreeze shall ensure that before implementing the subscription based services, the existing Users shall be notified in advance.
Disbursements to Freelancers
Copybreeze disburses funds that are payable to Freelancer under the Service Contract for the Job (less any applicable service fees) in accordance with the Freelancer's payment instructions provided to Copybreeze within ninety days after the Freelancer Fees are due and payable from Client. Freelancer agrees that it will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds held by Copybreeze prior to disbursement to Freelancer. Freelancer acknowledges that Payment Gateway may deduct some nominal fees according to applicable rates for remitting the money to the Freelancers Account as per the payment method chosen by the Freelancer.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, and except as prohibited by applicable law, if we determine in our sole discretion that you have violated the conditions and restrictions of the Site or this Agreement, we hold the disbursement of the Freelancer Fees. Additionally, we may hold the disbursement of the Freelancer Fees if: (a) we or our payment gateways require additional information, such as Freelancer's passport, government-issued identification, address, or date of birth, (b) we have reason to believe the Freelancer Fees may be subject to dispute or chargeback, (c) we suspect fraud, (d) we believe there are reasonable grounds for insecurity with respect to the performance of Freelancer's obligations under a Service Contract, this Agreement, or other Terms of Service, or (e) we deem necessary in connection with any investigation; or (f) required by applicable law.
If Client fails to pay the Freelancer Fees or any other amounts due under this Agreement, whether by cancelling Client's credit or debit card, initiating an improper chargeback, or any other means, Copybreeze may suspend or terminate Client's Account, the processing of any additional payments, and any Freelancer Services in progress.
Without limiting other available remedies, Client must pay Copybreeze upon demand for amounts owed under this Agreement, plus interest on the outstanding amount at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum interest allowed by applicable law, plus attorneys' fees and other costs of collection to the extent permitted by applicable law. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Copybreeze, at our discretion, may set off amounts due against other amounts received from or held by Copybreeze, make appropriate reports to credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities, and cooperate with credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities in any resulting investigation or prosecution.
No Return / Partial refund of Funds
Client acknowledges and agrees that Copybreeze will charge Client's designated Payment Method for the Freelancer Fees for Fixed-Price Contracts, upon Client’s acceptance of the Freelancer Services. Therefore, and in consideration of the Site Services provided by Copybreeze, Client agrees that once Copybreeze charges Client's designated Payment Method for the Freelancer Fees as provided in this Agreement, the charge is non-refundable, except as otherwise required by applicable law or the Freelancer terminates the Service Contract. Client therefore agrees not to ask its credit card company, bank, or other Payment Method provider to charge back any Freelancer Fees or other Fees charged pursuant to this Agreement for any reason. A chargeback in breach of the foregoing obligation is a material breach of this Agreement. If Client initiates a chargeback in violation of this Agreement, Client agrees that Copybreeze shall be entitled to the full amount that has been improperly charged back plus interest on the outstanding amount at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum interest allowed by applicable law, plus attorneys' fees and other costs of collection to the extent permitted by applicable law. It is hereby clarified that only in the event the Freelancer terminates the Service Contract before completing the Job, the Client shall be entitled to a refund a pro-rata share of Freelancer Fees which shall include, but not limited to, fees for the portion of the work not done and proportionate share of Copybreeze’s service fees.
Formal Invoices and Taxes
Copybreeze shall have no responsibility for determining the necessity of or for issuing any formal invoices, or for determining, remitting, or withholding any taxes applicable to the Freelancer Fees. Freelancer shall be solely responsible for determining whether it is required by applicable law to issue any formal invoices for the Freelancer Fees.
In order to use certain Site Services, Client must provide account information for at least one valid Payment Method.
Client hereby authorizes Copybreeze to run necessary authorizations on the Payment Method provided by Client, to store such details as Client's method of payment for Services, and to charge such Payment Method in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
By providing Payment Method information through the Site, Client represents, warrants, and covenants that: (a) Client is legally authorized to provide such information to us; (b) Client is legally authorized to perform payments using the Payment Method(s); and (c) such action does not violate the terms and conditions applicable to Client's use of such Payment Method(s) or applicable law. When Client authorizes a payment using a Payment Method via the Site, Client represents, warrants, and covenants that there are sufficient funds or credit available to complete the payment using the designated Payment Method. To the extent that any amounts owed under this Agreement cannot be collected from Client's Payment Method(s), Client is solely responsible for paying such amounts by other means. We reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you, and you will reimburse us, if we discover erroneous or duplicate transactions or we receive a chargeback from your Payment Method for any reason. You agree that we have the right to obtain such reimbursement by deducting amounts from future payments or withdrawals, charging your Payment Method(s), or obtaining reimbursement from you by any other lawful means. Without limiting any of our other rights or remedies, we may also charge interest as per Clause 6.6 and/or terminate your Account immediately upon your failure to reimburse us for chargebacks or other amounts owed under this Agreement.
