Slingtask.com is a marketplace that enables companies (“Clients”) to request certain tasks (“Tasks”) be performed by a crowd of freelance workers (“Slingtaskers”). We may add, delete or modify some or all of such Tasks at any time at our sole discretion.
To become a Client and access Tasks through our Website, You must be a legal entity and You must accept all of the terms and conditions in, incorporated by reference in, and linked to, these Terms of Service. By becoming a Client, You agree to: (1) abide by the Terms of Service and the processes, procedures, and guidelines described throughout the Website; (2) be financially responsible for Your use of the Website and the purchase of Tasks. We reserve the right, in Our sole discretion, to refuse, suspend, or terminate Services to anyone.
To become a Client and access Tasks, You must register for an Account. You agree to provide true, accurate and complete information as prompted by the registration form and all forms You access on the Website, and to update this information to maintain its truthfulness, accuracy and completeness.
(C) Accounts and Profiles
General. Once You have registered with the Website as a Client, the Website will create Your Account and associate it with an account number.
Username and Password. During registration, You will be asked to choose a username/email and password for the Account. As a Client, You agree and You are entirely responsible to safeguard and maintain the confidentiality of the username and password You use to access this Website. You authorize Us to assume that any person using the Website with Your username and password is You or is authorized to act for You. You agree to notify Us immediately if You suspect any unauthorized use of the account.
If Your company is located in one of the following states, any balance in Your account up to $25 is non-refundable and can only be used toward the purchase of Tasks: Connecticut, Texas and Vermont. Any balance in Your account in excess of $25 is refundable at any time (other than amounts that have been reserved with respect to a Task that You ordered). If Your company is not located in one of the states listed above, Your entire account balance is refundable at any time (other than amounts that have been reserved with respect to a Task that You ordered).
If Your account is inactive, account fees will be applied to any refundable portion of Your account balance. No fees will be required to be applied to any non-refundable portion of Your account balance. Please see the Slingtask.com Fees section below for details.
You acknowledge that refund requests must be made via email to Us. You acknowledge that We have the final decision regarding refunds, and PayPal disputes of any kind may result in the closure of your account.
It is Your responsibility to inform Us if Your company has relocated. Otherwise, We will use the most recent address that You provided for your account.
(A) Client and Slingtasker
1. Job Agreement: The engagement, contracting and management of a Task are between Client and a Slingtasker.
2. Independence: Client and Slingtaskers both acknowledge and agree that their relationship is that of independent contractors. The Slingtasker shall perform Tasks as an independent contractor and nothing in these Terms of Service shall be deemed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency, or employer-employee relationship between Client and Slingtasker or between You and Us.
(B) Clients, Slingtaskers and Slingtask.com
1. General: We are not a party to the dealing, contracting and fulfillment of any Task between a Client and Slingtaskers. We are not responsible for and will not control the manner in which Slingtaskers operate and are not involved in the hiring, firing, discipline or working conditions of the Slingtaskers. We will not provide any Slingtasker with any materials or tools to complete any Job.
2. Third-Party Beneficiary: Client and Slingtaskers both acknowledge and agree that the reputation, value, and goodwill of the Website depend on their adherence to their respective terms of service. Client and Slingtaskers therefore appoint Slingtask.com as a third-party beneficiary of their agreement for purposes of enforcing the obligations owed to, and the benefits conferred on, Us by these Terms of Service. Clients and Slingtaskers further agree that We have the right to take such actions with respect to their Accounts, including without limitation, suspension, termination, or any other legal actions, as We in Our sole discretion deem necessary to protect the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Website.
3. Agency: These Terms of Service and any registration for or subsequent use of this Website by any Client will not be construed as creating or implying any relationship of agency, franchise, partnership or joint venture between You and Us, except and solely to the extent expressly stated.
4. Taxes: You agree that You will abide by any and all applicable state and federal tax statutes, regulations and common law.
We deduct a fee from payments to Slingtaskers made by Clients using our marketplace so that We can pay Slingtaskers. The fee depends on the Task and is subject to change. No refunds of fees already paid will be given. If We exercise our right to cancel an Account as provided under these Terms of Service, at any time, We will not refund the fees already paid.
Authorized Payments are Final: Your deposit of funds into Your Account constitutes Your agreement to pay for any amounts which You authorize Us to pay Slingtaskers and retain for Ourselves from Tasks. Such payments, once authorized, are final. When a Task is completed, You acknowledge that We have provided a complete service in respect of the payment made by You for the Task and You hereby release Us from any and all liability with respect to such payment.
Fraudulent Transactions: Erroneous or Duplicate Transactions; Charge Backs. We reserve the right to seek reimbursement from You, and You will reimburse Us, if We discover a fraudulent transaction, erroneous or duplicate transaction, or if We receive a charge back or reversal from any Client credit card company, bank, or PayPal for any reason. You agree to and acknowledge Our right to investigate any and all transactions for fraud. Further, You agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests made by Us in an effort to investigate fraud. You agree that We have 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. You also agree to pay any interest charges, attorneys’ fees and other costs of collection incurred by Us in collecting from You the authorized but unpaid amount. In such case, We may, at Our option, stop processing any further payments made by You and apply any amounts then held by Us on Your behalf toward any deficiencies, losses or costs that We have incurred as a result of Your use of Slingtask.com. We may also make appropriate reports to credit reporting agencies, financial institutions, tax agencies and law enforcement authorities, and cooperate with them in any resulting investigation or prosecution.
Maintenance Fees. We consider your Account to be inactive if You have not logged into or otherwise accessed or used your Account for a period of twelve (12) months. You can reactivate your account simply by logging in. If your Account is inactive, the following fees will apply, except as otherwise required by law:
If your company is not based in Connecticut, Texas or Vermont and your Account has remained inactive for six (6) months (i.e., a total of 18 months have passed since your last activity with respect to your Account), We shall charge your account balance: (a) a one-time account inactivity fee equal to $20; and (b) each month thereafter, an account maintenance fee equal to the lesser of $5 per month, or the remaining balance in your account, until your balance is $0 or You reactivate your account. In no case would You owe more than the remaining balance in your account. After your account balance reaches $0, We shall have the right to close your account.
If your company is based in Connecticut, Texas or Vermont and your account has remained inactive for six (6) months (i.e., a total of 18 months have passed since your last activity with respect to your account), We shall charge against the refundable portion of your account balance: (a) a one-time account inactivity fee equal to $20; and (b) each month thereafter, an account maintenance fee equal to the lesser of $5 per month, or the remaining balance in your account, until the refundable portion of your balance is $0 or You reactivate your account. No fees shall be charged against the non-refundable portion of your account balance (i.e., any account balance equal to $25 or less).
At least two weeks prior to charging the initial inactivity fee as set forth above, We shall attempt to contact to You via e-mail at the e-mail address You provided.
