Clients agree that all information contained on a website operated
by the Site, and all information compiled by the Site through operation
of the affiliate program, is the proprietary information of the
Site. Personal information provided by Clients to the Site will
be kept confidential and will not be distributed to any third party.
Clients 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 the Site at any other time. There should be no need to give anyone
your e-mail address. Email addresses may not be exchanged in project
forums or via the site messenger. Any messages and forum postings
may be monitored by the site admin. It is automatically provided
if you choose a seller (or you are the seller 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 Client,
unless it's for a project you (a seller) have been picked for, or
you (a buyer) have picked a seller for. This includes giving out
your e-mail address, ICQ number, phone number, or any other method
of contact outside of this site. the Site provides you with message
boards and private messaging, which should be sufficient for pre-project
You are strictly prohibited from contacting members or attempting
to negotiate the fee for a project with another Client directly
(outside of the Site) 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 seller being chosen, and then contacting them about the project
anyway. 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 the Site.
REFERRAL COMMISSIONS The referral commission paid out will
be the one listed on the affiliate page (http://www.freelancecenter.com/affiliate.htm).
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 FreeLanceCenter user to share/transfer
the commission made from your own account, or else both parties
will be kicked from the service without payment.
