3. Relationship between Users and Scilancer

  1. General. Scilancer is not a party to the dealing, contracting and fulfillment of any Project between a Buyer and a Seller. Scilancer has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of any services performed or deliverables created, advertised, the truth or accuracy of project listings, the qualifications, background, or abilities of Registered Users, the ability of Sellers to perform services, the ability of Buyers to pay for services, or that a Buyer or Seller can or will actually complete a Project. Scilancer is not responsible for and will not control the manner in which a Seller operates and is not involved in the hiring, firing, discipline or working conditions of the Seller. All rights and obligations for the purchase and sale of services or other deliverables are solely between a Buyer and a Seller. Scilancer will not provide any Seller with any materials or tools to complete any Project. Buyers and Sellers must look solely to the other for enforcement and performance of all the rights and obligations arising from Project Agreements (defined below) and any other terms, conditions, representations, or warranties associated with such dealings.
  2. Third-Party Beneficiary of Project Agreement. Buyer and Seller each acknowledges and agrees that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site depend on their performance of their covenants and agreements as set forth in their agreement concerning a Project (each a "Project Agreement"). Buyer and Seller therefore appoint Scilancer as a third-party beneficiary of their Project Agreement solely for purposes of enforcing the obligations owed to, and the benefits conferred on, Scilancer by these Terms of Service. Buyers and Sellers further agree that Scilancer has the right to take such actions with respect to the Project Agreement or their Accounts, including without limitation, suspension, termination, or any other legal actions, as Scilancer in its sole discretion deems necessary to protect the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site.
  3. Agency. These Terms and any registration for or subsequent use of this Site by any Registered User will not be construed as creating or implying any relationship of agency, franchise, partnership or joint venture between you and Scilancer, except and solely to the extent expressly agreed in writing by Scilancer.

4. Billing and Payment Services

  1. General. The Scilancer Site issues invoices on behalf of Sellers based on a signed contract (the "Contract") and enables Buyers to make payments for services. A Seller and Buyer must sign Contract for each and every Project. The Seller must provide Scilancer with a list of items, including, but not limited to, payments required and description of Project(s), to be included on the Contract ("Contract Details"). Such Contract Details will not be final until and unless such Seller and Buyer has confirmed the accuracy of the Contract Details by electronic signature or waived the right to review the Contract Details. If a Seller, or Buyer waives his, her or its right to review the Contract Details, all items in the Contract Details will be included on the invoice (the "Invoice") as received by Scilancer. When a Seller completes a Project for a Buyer, or some other Contract obligation is met, the Seller will request Payment for Invoice via the Site. Scilancer will submit the Invoice to the Buyer and the Buyer shall submit the payment specified in the Invoice to Scilancer.
  2. Payment. Payments will be handled via a third-party provider (the "Processor"). When a Buyer makes a payment through the Processor service, the Processor will deduct and pay to Scilancer the appropriate Service Fee due Scilancer as described on the Site (the "Service Fee"), and will deliver the remainder of the Payment to the Seller. Changes in the Service Fee will be posted on the Site and/or notice will be sent to Users via email. It is each User’s sole responsibility to provide accurate payment information (account numbers, etc.) to facilitate Payments, and to keep such information current. Scilancer does not store financial information, but the Site will transmit any such information to the Processor to facilitate Payment. Scilancer is not responsible for such information once it is transmitted to Processor. Processor will charge a processing fee ("Processing Fee") for payouts to international bank accounts that will be deducted from the net amount of Payment paid to Seller.
  3. Autopay. By subscribing for autopay, you authorize Scilancer and its Processor to charge your credit card or bank account (as appropriate) for any Invoice Payments as they come due.
  4. Invoice Disputes. If a Buyer reasonably disputes any Invoice, the Buyer will pay all undisputed amounts within the time frames specified above and the parties will cooperate to verify any disputed amounts. Any Invoice amounts reasonably disputed by a Buyer will not be payable to a Seller until such dispute is resolved. Processor’s obligation to pay any Payment (less applicable Service Fee) is expressly conditioned upon: (a) Scilancer's receipt of Payment from the applicable Buyer and (b) resolution of all outstanding disputes with respect to such Invoice and/or Payment.
  5. No Refunds of Service Fee. The Service Fees paid to Scilancer and the Processing Fees paid to Processor are not refundable under any circumstances – even if Seller agrees to refund some or all of a Project fee to Buyer.
  6. Legal Relationship. Scilancer is not directly involved in the Payment process, and is not your agent with respect to any funds that have been transferred. Each Seller must properly discharge and credit Buyers for all payments that Processor makes to such Seller in respect of services provided to such Buyers. Processor acts as a payment provider by creating, hosting, maintaining, and providing the Payment as described herein. Neither Scilancer nor Processor have any control over the services invoiced or paid for with the Payment.  Additionally, Scilancer does not control whether Buyer or Seller will actually complete the underlying transaction. Scilancer is not responsible in any way for the timeliness or accuracy of the Invoices or the timeliness, accuracy, completion or workmanship of any work product produced by a Seller as a result of an awarded Project. Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to constitute Scilancer as your agent with respect to any service purchased and sold by Registered Users through the Site, or expand or modify any warranty, liability or indemnity stated in these Terms. You expressly acknowledge that (a) Scilancer is not acting as a trustee or a fiduciary of Buyers or Sellers and that the Services are provided to Registered Users administratively; (b) Scilancer is not a "financial institution" as defined under the Bank Secrecy Act and the Processor's services are payment services rather than a banking services; (c) SCILANCER IS NOT A BANK AND ANY PAYMENTS TRANSFERRED VIA THE PROCESSOR ARE NOT INSURED DEPOSITS AND ARE SUBJECT TO DEFAULT, LOSS OR FORFEITURE. You further expressly acknowledge that the Processor is a separate entity from Scilancer, and that Scilancer has no control over any acts or omissions of such Processor. Transactions involving the Processor will be governed exclusively by their terms of service and privacy policy. Be sure to read all such terms and policies of the Processor.
  7. Authorized Payments are Final. You agree to pay for all Invoice amounts and authorize Processor to charge to your credit card, bank account, or similar account for the Payments. Such Payments, once authorized, are final. When a Buyer’s acceptance of Seller’s services has occurred: (i) Scilancer shall have no further liability to any party with respect to Payment for such services, (ii) Buyer acknowledges that Scilancer has provided a complete service in respect of the Payment made by Buyer for the Invoice, as applicable and (iii) Buyer hereby releases Scilancer from any and all liability with respect to such Payment.
  8. Fraudulent Transactions; Erroneous or Duplicate Transactions; Charge Backs. Scilancer reserves the right to seek reimbursement from you, and you will reimburse Scilancer, if Scilancer discovers a fraudulent transaction, erroneous or duplicate transaction, or if Scilancer receives a charge back or reversal from any Buyer’s credit card company, bank, or other account for any reason.  You agree to and acknowledge Scilancer’s right to investigate any and all transactions for fraud.  Further, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests made by Scilancer in an effort to investigate fraud. You agree that Scilancer has the right to obtain such reimbursement by charging your Account, deducting amounts from future transfers, charging your credit card or any bank account associated with your Account, or obtaining reimbursement from you by any other lawful means, including using a third party collection agency. Failure to pay for reimbursements of a charge back or a reversal of payment is cause for termination of your Account.
  9. Currency. All Payments will be made in US Dollars and therefore Scilancer is not responsible for currency fluctuations that occur when billing or crediting a credit or debit card denominated in a currency other than US Dollars, nor is Scilancer responsible for currency fluctuations that occur when receiving or sending payment via wire transfer, check or automated clearinghouse to and from your bank account, credit card account or other account.
  10. Exclusivity and Non-Circumvention. Buyers agree to use Scilancer's Processor to make all payments to Sellers related to a Project posted on the Site. You also agree not to take any action directly or indirectly to circumvent this obligation, the Service Fee, or any associated fees.

You will indemnify Scilancer for any taxes, fees, and related expenses Scilancer is forced to pay.
