This Agreement is effective between you and Witmart upon your acceptance of this Agreement.

This User Agreement is part of Witmart's Terms of Service. This page explains the terms by which you may use the Witmart web site, web widgets, feeds, mobile device software applications, applications for third-party web sites and services, and any other mobile or web services or applications owned, controlled, or offered by Witmart (collectively the "Site"). Before you may become a member of Witmart, you must read and accept all of the terms in, and linked to, the Terms of Service, which includes this User Agreement, Privacy Policy and other policies posted on the Site.

Certain capitalized terms used in this User Agreement are defined below. Witmart may amend this Agreement at any time by posting the amended terms on the site. Except as stated elsewhere, all amended terms shall automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially posted, such amendments being agreed to by you by virtue of agreeing to the terms herein.

 

WITMART SERVICES

Witmart provides an online marketplace and workplace where those seeking non-physical services through the internet can find and employ providers of such services. Those seeking or purchasing such services are termed "Employers": those offering or providing such services are termed "Providers". Any User may be an Employer or a Provider. The Site contains functions that enable Employers and Providers to do the following:

  • Post a Contest Job: An Employer posts a Job with an offered reward (price). Providers can participate by providing their solutions (e.g. designs, copywriting, ideas and consulting services) to the Employer and the Employer will decide which Provider or Providers will win the job.
  • Post a Contract Job: An Employer posts a Job and invites Providers to bid on it. The Employer will choose a Provider after evaluating their bidding price, skills, abilities and experience. Once the Job is complete, the Employer will pay the Provider the agreed upon price.
  • Post an Hour-Job: An Hour-Job is actually a Job that has been negotiated between an Employer and a Provider and is paid out at an hourly rate.


In addition to the services provided above, Witmart also provides project management tools, Workplace, and an advertising forum.

Witmart, at its sole discretion, may provide other services upon specific agreement or arrangement with a User.

 

WITMART FEES

Fees

Witmart does charge fees for using some of its services as shown on the Witmart Fees Schedule. When a User uses a service that has a fee, there is an opportunity to review and accept the fees that are to be charged based on the Fees Schedule, which may change from time to time. Changes to that schedule are posted on the Witmart site and are effective with at least fourteen days' notice. Witmart may temporarily change the Fees Schedule due to promotional events (for example, free Job posting days may be offered) or when new services become available, and such changes are effective when the temporary promotional event or new service is posted on the site. By purchasing a service, you agree that the fee for that service as listed in the Fees Schedule at the time of purchase is fair and just and may be lawfully collected by Witmart.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US dollars. The User is responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with the Witmart sites and services in a timely manner into the User's Witmart Account.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EMPLOYERS AND PROVIDERS

Member Agreement

Each User who becomes either an Employer or Provider on any given Job must enter into a Member Agreement with the other party involved on that same Job. Witmart shall not be a party to the Member Agreement. The Member Agreement shall consist of the following:

  • the Terms of Service;
  • the Job terms as awarded and accepted on the Site, to an extent not inconsistent with the Terms of Service;
  • Contract and Milestone Agreement created by and entered into by the Employer and the Provider, to an extent not inconsistent with the Terms of Service; and
  • any other agreements between the Employer and the Provider and posted on the Site, to an extent not inconsistent with the Terms of Service;


The order of precedence in resolving disputes among parties to a Member Agreement shall be as follows:

  • the Terms of Service;
  • the Job terms, as awarded and accepted on the Site;
  • the Contract and Milestone Agreement; and
  • any other agreements between the Employer and the Provider and posted on the Site, to an extent not inconsistent with the Terms of Service

 

Any terms or provisions of an agreement between Users that conflict with the Terms of Service shall be null and void, but all other terms or provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

As a User, you agree that any terms of agreement with another User complies and does not conflict with the Terms of Service.

 

If a User acts as an Employer, that User assumes full responsibility for managing, inspecting, and accepting the Provider's Services. The Employer accepts that the Provider will offer such services in a time, place and manner determined by the Provider, unless otherwise specified in the Member Agreement. The Employer also accepts full responsibility for paying for the Provider's Services to an extent that such payment is earned as per the Member Agreement. The Employer agrees to pay on a payment schedule as provided in the Member Agreement, or, in the event there are no provisions for a payment schedule, in a timely manner.

 

If a User acts as a Provider, that User assumes full responsibility for the performance and quality of the Provider's Services in accordance with the Member Agreement. The Provider further agrees that the Provider's Services will be performed in a timely manner consistent with industry practices. The Provider further acknowledges that some Provider's Services may be performed prior to payment by the Employer and agrees that Witmart is not responsible for collecting payment for such services. The Provider is solely responsible for collecting any unpaid fees from an Employer to whom services have been provided.

 

Any User, acting as either an Employer or a Provider, covenants and agrees to act with good faith and fair dealing in the execution and performance of the Member Agreement.

 

Independent Contractor

All Users agree that the parties to any Member Agreement are engaged in an independent contractor relationship. Nothing in the Member Agreement or this User Agreement shall be construed as to create a partnership, a joint venture, an agency, or an employer-employee relationship between any party to any Member Agreement or between a User and Witmart.

 

RELATIONSHIP WITH WITMART

 

Witmart Not a Party to Member Agreements

Witmart is not a party to any Member Agreement. Any User, whether an Employer or a Provider, agrees that Witmart is not responsible for the quality, safety or legality of services provided through the Site. Further, Witmart is not responsible for the truth or accuracy of Job postings, or in any other way for the fulfillment of any obligations of any User. The User agrees that any actions to enforce the terms of a Member Agreement shall be taken exclusively against the other party to the Member Agreement and not against Witmart.

 

Witmart makes no representations or guarantees about the credentials, qualifications, capabilities or professional record of any User.

 

Users acknowledge that information posted on the Site about any User or any third party is provided by such User or third party. Witmart makes no representations as to the veracity of such information. If such information is replied upon, Users hereby agree that Witmart is not liable for any misrepresentation so posted and that only the User or third party about whom such information is posted shall be liable for any damages incurred as a result of reliance on such information.

 

 

Third-Party Beneficiary of Member Contract

In acknowledgement of the fact that the value of the Site depends on Users performing their obligations with respect to Jobs and Member Agreements and in consideration of such fact, Users agree that any Member Agreement entered into with another User shall make Witmart a third-party beneficiary for purposes of enforcing the obligations created in that Agreement. Users agree that Witmart, in enforcing its Third Party Beneficiary Rights may suspend or terminate a User's account or right to use the Site along with any other actions Witmart may take according to Law as a Third Party Beneficiary. Witmart has sole discretion in determining and exercising its Third Party Beneficiary Rights.

Witmart's provision of W-9, 1099-MISC and/or 1096 in no way obligates Witmart to provide any other services related to any User's tax or governmental recording obligations.

No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.

TERMINATION AND SUSPENSION

 

This Agreement shall become effective as the User's contractual agreement upon acceptance or use of the Site, and shall continue until the User's Account is terminated by Witmart or the User as provided for under the terms of this Section.

 

Unless otherwise agreed to in writing between the parties, either party may terminate the contractual agreement represented by this Agreement at any time upon notice to the other party. In the event a User properly terminates the contractual agreement represented by this Agreement, the User's Account is automatically terminated and

 

  • Witmart shall continue to perform those Witmart Services necessary to complete any open transaction between the User and another Member; and
  • the User shall continue to be obligated to pay any amounts accrued but unpaid as of the date of termination to Witmart for any Site Services and to any Providers for any Provider Services.

 

Without limiting Witmart's other remedies, Witmart may issue a warning, or temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate an Account or a Job, and refuse to provide any or all Site Services if:

 

  • A User breaches the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement or the linked policies and information incorporated herein by reference, including the written policies and procedures posted on the Site;
  • Witmart suspects or becomes aware that a User has provided false or misleading information; or
  • Witmart believes in its sole discretion that a User's actions may cause legal liability for that User, to Members or to Witmart or are contrary to the interests of the Site or the Witmart User Community.

 

Once indefinitely suspended or terminated, a User must cease use of the Site under any Account and may not re-register under a new Account.

 

In addition, violations of this Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions.

 

Without limiting Witmart's other remedies, to the extent a User engages in actions or activities which circumvent the Witmart Site or otherwise reduce fees owed to Witmart under this Agreement, a User must pay Witmart for all fees owed to Witmart and reimburse Witmart for all losses and costs (including any and all Witmart employee time) and reasonable expenses (including attorney fees) related to investigating any breach and collecting such fees.

 

When a User's Account is suspended or terminated for any reason, that User may no longer have access to data, messages, files and other material kept on the Site. The material may be deleted along with all previous posts and proposals.

 

Notification of Witmart Members

 

Users acknowledge and agree that the value, reputation and goodwill of the Site depends on the transparency of Member Account status to all Members, including Members who are participating in Jobs together. Users therefore agree as follows: IF WITMART SUSPENDS OR TERMINATES A USER'S ACCOUNT OR JOB, WITMART HAS THE RIGHT BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION TO

 

  • NOTIFY OTHER MEMBERS ENGAGED IN ACTIVE JOBS WITH THAT USER TO INFORM THEM OF THE SUSPENDED OR TERMINATED ACCOUNT OR JOB STATUS, AND
  • PROVIDE THOSE MEMBERS WITH SUMMARY REASONS FOR THE ACTION.

 

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

 

Users will not hold Witmart responsible for other Users' content, actions or inactions, Jobs and Bids they post or other User's destruction of allegedly fake items. Users acknowledge that Witmart's sites are marketplaces to allow anyone to request, offer, sell, and buy various services, non-physical products and digital goods, at any time, from anywhere. Witmart is not involved in the actual transaction between Employers and Providers. While Witmart may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through various programs, it has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of items advertised, the truth or accuracy of Users' content or listings, the ability of Providers to provide services, the ability of Employers to pay for services, or that an Employer or Provider will actually complete a transaction.

 

Witmart does not transfer legal ownership of items (e.g. designs and works) from the Provider to the Employer. Further, Witmart cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to its sites, services or tools, and operation of its sites, services or tools may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of its control. Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted, Witmart excludes all implied warranties, terms and conditions. Witmart is not liable for any loss of money, goodwill or reputation, or any special, indirect or consequential damages arising, directly or indirectly, out of the use of its sites, services and tools or the inability to use its sites, services and tools.

 

Regardless of the previous paragraphs, if Witmart is found to be liable, that liability is limited to the greater of (a) any amounts due up to the full cost of the item and (b) the total fees (under Witmart Fees and Services) paid to Witmart in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to the liability.

 

RELEASE

 

When one or more Users has a dispute, Witmart and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees are released from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

 

WARRANTY DISCLAIMER

 

THE SITE SERVICES PROVIDED BY WITMART OR ANY OF ITS LICENSORS OR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS," AS AVAILABLE, AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NONINFRINGEMENT, ARISING BY STATUTE OR OTHERWISE IN LAW OR FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OR TRADE).

You will indemnify and hold Witmart (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of any breach of this Agreement, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.

 

NOTICES

 

Except as explicitly stated otherwise, legal notices shall be served on ZBJ Network Inc (in the case of notices to Witmart) or to the email address a User provides to Witmart during the registration process (in the case of notices to a User). Notice shall be deemed given 24 hours after an email is sent, unless the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, Witmart may give legal notice by mail to the mailing address a User provides during the registration process. In such cases, notice shall be deemed given three days after the date of mailing.
