By accepting these Term you consent to consultations being chaperoned and recorded at Consultable Clients’ election.

Fees and Payment

Fees: Creating an account on the Website is free and there is no charge to post or bid on Projects. Instead, Consultable collects a percentage of all fees paid or payable for each Project completed and/or any Services performed by Consultant for Client. Consultants are responsible for deciding and setting their own rates for Projects subject to minimum and maximum ranges established by Consultable for Projects. Consultants will set their rates during the initial Project bidding process, and will not be able to adjust their rate after they submit their bid. Any additional questions on fee collection should be directed to info@consultable.io

Taxes: Consultable is a third-party processor and will provide tax forms as required by applicable state law. It will be the sole responsibility of a Consultant to determine if he or she is required to file any tax forms or remit any taxes or similar charges for any fees received for a Consultant’s provision of Services through the Platform Services to the appropriate authorities. Further, any Consultant who is a non-U.S. taxpayer is required to submit Form W-8BEN to Consultable in order to claim exemption from U.S. tax reporting requirements.

Disputes: Should any dispute arise between Clients and Consultants over the quality or completeness of work on a Project, Consultable may withhold payment from a Consultant while the dispute is resolved. Consultable reserves sole discretion to make determinations in such disputes and has the right to cancel payment if Consultable determines that a Consultant has failed to adequately complete a Project or violated these Terms or any applicable laws. Consultable encourages Clients and Consultants to try and settle disputes amongst themselves, however, if this is not possible Consultable will resolve disputes by obtaining information about the dispute between the Client and Consultant and making a resolution decision. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Consultable against any damages or liability incurred as a result of Consultable’ dispute resolution decision.

A Consultant’s participation in any Project with any Client is at the Consultant’s sole discretion. Consultants are never obligated to accept or continue any Project and may decline to participate or continue to participate in any Project at any time. Consultants should immediately stop working on any Project if they feel a Client is violating these Terms, violating applicable laws or acting unethically and contact Consultable immediately.

Services Agreement

The submission of a Project request by Clients and the bid participation by a Consultant will act as a service agreement for each specific project and will contain a Project description and terms and conditions for the Project. In the event a Client and Consultant wish to execute a written, mutually-executed services agreement (“Services Agreement”) between the parties, each Services Agreement will include: (i) the scope of the Project and Services to be performed, (ii) the fees to be paid for such Project and/or Services, and (iii) a provision designating Consultable as an intended third-party beneficiary of such Services Agreement and acknowledging that Consultable has the right to enforce its rights and obligations under the Services Agreement on its own behalf. A Services Agreement will not, and will not purport to, expand Consultable’ obligations or restrict Consultable’ rights under these Terms and will not violate any part of these Terms, including the Non-Circumvention section below. Clients will post any additional agreements (including a Services Agreement if applicable) required to be executed by a Consultant for a Project as an attachment to any posted Project requests. Once Client has selected a Consultant for Project, Client will send any agreements required to be executed by Consultants to info@consultable.io. Consultants should thoroughly read all attachments (including any agreements) on any Project before submitting their bid.

Audit Rights

Clients and Consultants each will: (a) create and maintain records to document satisfaction of each party’s respective obligations under these Terms and any additional agreement (including any Services Agreements) (e.g. payment obligations, conflicts and compliance with tax laws); and (b) provide copies of such records to Consultable upon request. Consultable maintains the right to audit each party’s operations and records to confirm compliance routinely and as necessary. However, this provision should not be construed as implying Consultable has the obligation to supervise a Consultant’s or Client’s individual compliance with their internal policies, or monitor the actual Services performed by Consultants or delivered to Clients.

Consultable Role

Acknowledgements: You expressly acknowledge and agree that (a) the Website is merely a venue where users of the Website may act as Consultants or Clients; (b) Consultable is a third-party beneficiary but not a party to any Services Agreements between Consultants and Clients; (c) you are not an employee of Consultable or its Clients for whom you perform Services, and Consultable and its Clients do not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control you or your Services; (d) Consultable will not have any liability or obligations for any acts or omissions by you or any other users related to the Platform Services; (e) your use of the Platform Services is subject to your acceptance of these Terms (which may include successfully completing a compliance test and ensuring compliance with these Terms); and (f) Consultable makes no representations as to the reliability, capability, or qualifications of any Consultants or the quality, security, or legality of any Consultant or Services, and Consultable disclaims any and all liability relating thereto.

Accuracy of Information: Consultable is in no way responsible for the accuracy of the information provided by Clients and Consultants through the Platform Services. Consultants acknowledge that the information they provide will be used by Consultable and its Clients to evaluate their abilities to complete Projects, and Consultants agree not to present false, misleading or inaccurate information to Consultable or its Clients. Consultants warrant that all Content, Work Product, and information provided while providing Services through the Platform Services will be provided in good faith, to the Consultant’s best ability and always in accordance with these Terms. Consultable reserves the right to update, change or remove information from accounts on the Website or terminate its relationship with any Consultant should any information provided be found to be false, misleading or inaccurate.

Independent Contractors: By accepting these Terms as a Consultant, you understand and agree that as a Consultant, your relationship to Consultable and its Clients is that of an independent contractor and in no way are you an employee of Consultable or its Clients. You have no authority and will not present yourself as having any such authority to speak or act on behalf of Consultable or its Clients. As an independent contractor, you understand and agree that you waive the withholding of all workers’ compensation, statutory disability and other employee fringe benefits, including pension and health benefits, since, as an independent contractor, Consultable or its Clients will not provide you with any benefits whatsoever.

Confidentiality

Confidential Information: As used in these Terms, “Confidential Information” means all confidential or proprietary information of a party (“Disclosing Party”) disclosed to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is either marked or designated as confidential or that a reasonable person would deem confidential or proprietary given the nature of the information and the circumstances under which it is disclosed. Confidential Information will include, but is not limited to, (a) Client’s identity; (b) information about Projects; (c) the terms and conditions in any Services Agreements or any other agreements executed with Clients; (d) your Content and Work Product; (e) opinions expressed or work commissioned; (f) information about any actual or potential business, investment or trading decisions or transactions of any Client; and (g) any other nonpublic or proprietary information of Consultable and its Clients. Confidential Information does not include any information that a Receiving Party can show: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (ii) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (iii) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; or (iv) is received from a third party without any duty or confidentiality obligation owed to the Disclosing Party.

Confidentiality Obligations: To the extent Confidential Information is shared, the Receiving Party will protect the secrecy of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than due care, and will: (a) not disclose or permit others to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to anyone without first obtaining the express written consent of the Disclosing Party; (b) not use or permit the use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, except as necessary for the performance of its obligations under these Terms (including, without limitation, the storage or transmission of Confidential Information on or through the Website for use by a Consultant); and (c) limit access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to the Receiving Party’s personnel who need to know such information for the performance of the Receiving Party’s obligations under these Terms. A disclosure of information will be immune from prosecution or civil action under the Defend Trade Secrets Act, 18 U.S.C. section 1832, if it: (A) is made (i) in confidence to a Federal, State, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (B) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. Additionally, Clients and Consultants agree not to disclose or to attempt to use or personally benefit (financially or otherwise) from any Confidential Information that is disclosed or learned because of their activities through the Platform Services. The confidentiality obligations hereunder will remain in effect until the Confidential Information enters the public domain through no action of the Receiving Party or any other person under legal obligation not to disclose such information.

Material Non-Public Information: Clients and Consultants will not disclose or otherwise share with any person, including other Clients or Consultants, material non-public information which, if used by such person, might constitute illegal insider trading. “Material non-public information” is defined as any information that there is a substantial likelihood that a reasonable investor would consider important in making his or her investment decisions, or information that is reasonably likely to have a substantial effect on the price of a company’s securities, and which has not been effectively communicated to the marketplace.

Termination

You may cancel your account on the Website at any time by providing notice via email to info@consultable.io. Likewise, Consultable maintains the right to terminate, suspend or otherwise limit your account for any reason without providing notice. For avoidance of doubt, termination or cancellation of your account shall not relieve you of any obligations under these Terms intended to survive termination, including but not limited to, “Non-Circumvention”, “Headhunter/Retainer Fees”, “Confidentiality”, “Compliance”, “Warranty Disclaimer’, “Indemnification” and “Limitation of Liability”.

Non-Circumvention

You agree to use the Platform Services as your exclusive method to receives Services from a Consultant identified through the Platform Services and make all payments, directly or indirectly, with that Consultant for a 12 month period from the later of (i) the time you first identify a Client or are first identified by a Client through the Platform Services; or (ii) the date you complete your last Project with a Client (“Non-Circumvention Period”). During the Non-Circumvention period, you shall not receive complete or partial payments from a Client or a Client’s business entity outside of the Platform Services, or otherwise circumvent Consultable’s role as payment processor or the Platform Services’ payment methods, and any violation of the foregoing restrictions is a material breach of these Terms. Examples of circumvention include, but are not limited to, (a) submitting proposals for, providing services similar to the Services, or receiving payments from any Clients first identified through the Platform Services outside of Consultable; or (b) reporting on the Platform Services a payment amount lower than that actually agreed between you and a Client through the Platform Services. You are not authorized to to expand the scope of any Services or Project through the Platform Services unless Consultable has agreed in advance and in writing. If a Client contacts you to arrange a consultation or other project without arranging such activity through Consultable and you perform such consultation or project, Consultable will not compensate you for such consultation or other project, even if such consultation or other project is a follow-up to a previous consultation or other project that was arranged through the Platform Services.

The Non-Circumvention Period will be effective from the moment of initial contact between you and any Client identified to you through the Platform Services. You agree to not solicit or accept any offer which violates these Terms unless we provide express written permission, which we may withhold at our discretion. If you become aware of any breach or attempted breach of this “Non-Circumvention” section, you must immediately inform Consultable at info@consultable.io. Termination of your relationship with Consultable will not affect your obligations under this “Non-Circumvention” section.
