TERMS & CONDITIONS

This agreement sets out the terms and conditions ('Terms and Conditions') applicable to members of the service operated by Freelancequotes.com. Applicants (referred to as 'members') must agree to the following Terms and Conditions. In the event a member breaches or otherwise fails to comply with any provision of these Terms and Conditions then in addition to any other remedy available to Freelancequotes, Freelancequotes may terminate the participation of such member in the service and/or may withhold any payments relating to participation in the service due to such member from Freelancequotes.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

Freelancequotes.com shall have absolute discretion as to whether or not it accepts a particular applicant or site for participation in the service.

REMOVAL FROM NETWORK

Freelancequotes.com reserves the right to terminate/suspend the participation of any member or site without reason but expressly including any member site that Freelancequotes judges to be in violation of the Terms and Conditions.

Members in violation of Freelancequotes's Terms and Conditions will be immediately deactivated. Freelancequotes may deactivate members with no prior notification. Members found in violation of the Terms and Conditions will not receive any credit or payment from Freelancequotes. Members that are terminated by Freelancequotes on any basis other than violation of these Terms and Conditions will be entitled to receive any payment due from Freelancequotes.

REFERRAL COMMISSIONS

The referral commission paid out will be the one listed on the Help page (http://www.Freelancequotes.com/help.html). If the commission rate is changed, it will only affect referrals made after the new commission was announced. You may not refer yourself, nor sign up for multiple accounts to collect referral fees. You may also not partner with any other Freelancequotes user to share/transfer the commission made from your own account, or else both parties will be kicked from the service without payment. Freelancequotes reserves the right to delay or cancel sending affiliate earnings if we believe the referred user will not pay the fees they were charged, since affiliate commissions are based on those fees.

PAYMENTS

Freelancequotes will typically print and mail cheques if the member requests it AND their account balance is equal to or greater than $30. This also applies to payments made through the PayPal service. All amounts are stated in and all payments will be made in US funds.

As previously stated, any member site that Freelancequotes removes from the service due to violation of the Terms and Conditions will receive no credit or payment.

COPYRIGHTS

No copyright material can be posted on Freelancequotes. This includes scripts which are sold by the author. Only posting sections of these scripts will be permitted. This is meant to protect the author's rights.

MODIFICATIONS

Freelancequotes reserves the right to change the member Terms and Conditions at any time. It is the member's responsibility to check these Terms and Conditions from time to time for such changes. In the event Freelancequotes offers any additional or replacement services then this agreement shall apply to such services in the absence of any new agreement specific to such services which is entered into between the parties.

OWNERSHIP

Members agree that all information contained on a website operated by Freelancequotes, and all information compiled by Freelancequotes through operation of the affiliate program, is the proprietary information of Freelancequotes. Personal information provided by members to Freelancequotes will be kept confidential and will not be distributed to any third party.

E-MAIL ADDRESSES

Members agree not to post their e-mail address on the site, except in the "e-mail" field of the signup form, or when asked by Freelancequotes at any other time. There should be no need to give anyone your e-mail address. It is automatically provided if you choose a programmer (or you are the programmer chosen for) a project, and before that time you can use the message board to communicate. This does not only apply to e-mail addresses, but to all methods of communication, including phone, ICQ, AIM, MSN Messenger, etc... See "Avoiding Commissions" below for the reason.

PROVIDING CONTACT INFORMATION

You are prohibited from making direct contact with another member, unless it's for a project you (a programmer) have been picked for, or you (a webmaster) have picked a programmer for. This includes giving out your e-mail address, ICQ number, phone number, or any other method of contact outside of this site. Freelancequotes provides you with message boards, which should be sufficient for pre-project planning. The only exception to this is on "Featured" projects. If a project has the "Featured" graphic on it, that means the webmaster has paid a flat fee in advance, and you ARE allowed to provide contact information in the message board. Note that the Freelancequotes system does not distinguish between featured and non-featured message board posts, so you will still get a warning when submitting an e-mail address, even if the project is featured.

AVOIDING COMMISSIONS

You are strictly prohibited from attempting to negotiate the fee for a project with another member directly (outside of Freelancequotes) after that project has been created/opened and before that project has been closed (basically, during an ongoing project). But this also applies to any project that was closed without a programmer being chosen, and then contacting them about the project anyway. Both parties are responsible for notifying Freelancequotes if the payment amount increases (above the bid amount) after the project is closed. Receiving/paying a larger amount than the original project bid, without notifying us, will be considered an attempt to avoid the commissions. We believe our commissions are very fair and justified for the service we provide, therefore we will absolutely not tolerate any of this activity on Freelancequotes.

ADVERTISING

You are prohibited from advertising your website on Freelancequotes. Any URL posted in a bid, project description, or the message board, must relate to a project on Freelancequotes.

THE ROLE OF Freelancequotes

Freelancequotes functions as a venue to connect webmasters and programmers in a virtual marketplace. As a neutral facilitator, Freelancequotes is not directly involved in the actual transactions between users of the Site. As a result, Freelancequotes has no control over the truth, accuracy, quality, legality, or safety of postings made by users. Because verifying the identity of a user on the Internet is difficult, Freelancequotes cannot and does not confirm the identity of users. Freelancequotes also does not confirm nor verify the qualifications, background, or abilities of users. Therefore, We recommend that You be careful and exercise common sense and good judgment when dealing with any member on the Site. You are enouraged to review our Project Guidlines before taking part in a project. If you are unsatisifed with another member, the most Freelancequotes can do is refund the project commission you have been charged by us. We cannot refund the money you have sent to someone, we are not responsible for your transactions.

AND FINALLY

We thank you for choosing the Freelancequotes.com service and we look forward to a mutually successful business relationship.

 
Good Luck !!!!
