You acknowledge that such feedback, reputation and reviews belong solely to us, notwithstanding that we permit you to use it on the Procolony Website while you remain a User.

11. Advertising

Unless otherwise agreed with us, you must not advertise an external website, product or service on the Website. Any website address posted on the Website, including in a listing, bid, listing description, clarification board or the message board, must relate to a Project, product listed, User or service being performed on the Website.

You authorise us, directly or through third parties, to make any enquiries that we may consider necessary to validate your identity. You must, at our request: (a) provide further information to us, which may include your date of birth and other information that will allow us to reasonably identify you; (b) take steps to confirm ownership of your e-mail address; or (c) verify your information against third party databases or through other sources.

You must also, at our request, provide copies of identification documents (such as your drivers' licence).

We reserve the right to close, suspend, or limit access to your Account in the event we are unable to obtain or verify to our satisfaction the information which we request under this section.

If your identity is not verified you may not be able to withdraw funds from your Account, and other restrictions may apply.

14. User Services

Upon the Buyer awarding a project to the Seller, and the Seller's acceptance on the Procolony Website, or the purchase of an product by a Buyer from the Seller, the Buyer and Seller will be deemed to have entered into a User Contract under which the Buyer agrees to purchase, and the Seller agrees to deliver the Seller Services. You agree not to enter into a User Contract that contains any contractual provisions in conflict with the User Agreement.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with your obligations to other Users. If you do not, you may become liable to that User. You must ensure that you are aware of any domestic laws (including common law), international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations relevant to you as a Buyer or Seller, or in any other uses you make of the Website.

If another User breaches any obligation to you, you are solely responsible for enforcing any rights that you may have. For the avoidance of doubt, we have no responsibility for enforcing any rights under a User Contract.

Depending on their jurisdiction, Sellers and Buyers may have rights under statutory warranties that cannot lawfully be excluded. Nothing in this User Agreement is intended to override a right that by applicable law may not be excluded.

Each User acknowledges and agrees that the relationship between Buyers and Sellers is that of an independent contractor. Nothing in this User Agreement creates a partnership, joint venture, agency or employment relationship between Users. Nothing in this User Agreement shall in any way be construed as forming a joint venture, partnership or an employer-employee relationship between Procolony and the User.

15. Funds

You may have funds in your Account if you have prepaid for fees or charges or for services to be provided to you via the Website. If you are a Seller, you may have funds if you have successfully completed a Project, or sold an product, and funds have been released to you. There are also circumstances where funds will have been credited to your Account in relation to an affiliate program or a referral program.

Funds in your Account are held by us in our operating accounts held with Paypal or reputable financial institutions. Funds in your Account are not held separately by us and may be commingled with our general operating funds and funds of other User's Accounts.

You are not entitled to any interest, or other earnings for funds that are in your Account.

We may receive interest on funds held by us in our operating accounts (which may include funds in your Account) from financial institutions with whom we hold our operating accounts. Any such interest earned belongs to us and we will not be liable to any User for any imputed interest on such funds.

We reserve the right to collect any funds owed to us by any other legal means.

You acknowledge and agree that:
(a) we are not a bank or other licensed financial institution and do not provide banking services or any financial services to you;
(b) the funds shown in your Account (which may include any prepayment of fees which you owe to Sellers) represents our unsecured obligations to you with respect to your rights to direct us to make payment in relation to the purchase and sale of Seller Services through the Website;
(c) to the extent that we are required to release funds from your Account to you, you will become our unsecured creditor until such funds are paid to you;
(d) we are not acting as a trustee or fiduciary with respect to such funds or payments;
(e) the amount of funds showing in your Account is not insured and is not a guaranteed deposit;
(f) funds may only be loaded into your Account, or released from your Account, by us and you must only use the mechanisms available on the Website to pay for, or receive funds in respect of Seller Services;
(g) we will hold funds in respect of the amount of your Account in an account held by us with a financial institution (or in any manner that we decide in our sole discretion from time to time) and such funds are not segregated into a separate account; and
(h) we may commingle your funds with funds of other User's and our own funds and such commingled funds could be used to pay other Users or for our general corporate purposes or otherwise, however, we will remain obliged to release or refund funds at your direction in accordance with this User Agreement.

16. Limits & Fraud Prevention

We reserve the right to suspend a User withdrawal request if the source of the funds is suspected to be fraudulent.

If we become aware that any funds received into an Account from another Account as a result of a fraudulent transaction (e.g. payment made using a stolen credit card) it will be reversed immediately. If those funds have already been released to you, you must pay the funds into your Account. If you do not do so, we may suspend, limit or cancel your account, or take action against you to recover those funds.

We may, in our sole discretion, place a limit on any or all of the funds in your Account (thereby preventing any use of the funds) if:

  1. we believe there may be a high level of risk associated with you, your Account, or any or all of your transactions, including if we believe that there is a risk that such funds will be subject to reversal or chargeback;
  2. we believe that the beneficiary of the payment is someone other than you;
  3. we believe that the payment is being made to a country where we do not offer our Service; or
  4. we are required to do so by law.

If you are involved in a dispute, we may (in certain circumstances) place a temporary limit on the funds in your Account to cover the amount of any potential liability. If the dispute is resolved in your favour, we will lift the limit on your funds and those funds may be released to you. If the dispute is not resolved in your favour, we may remove the funds from your Account.

17. Refunds

You may ask for a refund at any time for any funds that you have paid into your Account except if the amount to refund relates to a payment for services provided by Sellers or relates to fees or charges payable to us.

If we agree to the refund, the funds will be received by the User via the same payment method(s) that the User used to make the original payment to us. We may, in our sole discretion, use an alternative payment method in exceptional circumstances.

We may refund funds to Users irrespective of whether a User has requested funds be refunded if: (a) we are required by law or consider that we are required by law to do so; (b) we determine that refunding funds to the User will avoid any dispute or an increase in our costs; (c) we refund funds to the User in accordance with any refund policy specified by us from time to time; (d) we find out that the original payment made by the User is fraudulent; (e) the User made a duplicate payment in error; or (f) we consider, in our sole opinion, that it is likely that the refund of funds is necessary to avoid a credit card chargeback.

You can request a refund by emailing us at support@procolony.com. If you have done so, you must not initiate a chargeback request with your credit card issuer until such time as all reasonable efforts have been exhausted with us to resolve your request.

If you have already initiated a chargeback request with your credit card issuer, you must not request a refund of funds by contacting us and must not seek double recovery.

If we reasonably determine, having considered all the relevant circumstances, that you have made an excessive or unreasonable number of requests to refund funds back to you or chargebacks, we may suspend, limit or close your Account.

There is no minimum amount for a refund.

18. Withdrawals

Your first withdrawal of funds earned will be delayed for fifteen (15) days for security and fraud purposes.

Subsequent withdrawals may be delayed for up to fifteen (15) days where our fraud prevention policies dictate that a delay is required.

We may require your identity to be verified before you can withdraw funds from your Account, irrespective of whether or not a delay has been enforced.

You acknowledge and agree that we may seek to verify your identity or request additional information from you as part of our anti-fraud measures.

19. Chargebacks

A chargeback (being a challenge to a payment that a Buyer files directly with their credit card issuer) and a reversal instruction is made by the payment product issuer or third parties (such as payment processors) and not by us. We are bound to follow their instructions.

You acknowledge and agree that we will be entitled to recover chargebacks and reversals that may be imposed on us by a payment product issuer or third parties (such as payment processors) on funds paid to you by Buyers through the Website.

You agree that we may reverse any such payments made to you, which are subject to chargeback or reversal instruction via your payment product issuer or third parties (such as payment processors).

20. Inactive Accounts

We reserve the right to close an Inactive Account.

21. Right To Refuse Service

We may close, suspend or limit your access to your Account without reason. Without limiting the foregoing, we may close, suspend or limit your access to your Account:

(a) if we determine that you have breached, or are acting in breach of, this User Agreement;
(b) if we determine that you have breached legal liabilities (actual or potential), including infringing a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights;
(c) if we determine that you have engaged, or are engaging, in fraudulent, or illegal activities;
(d) you do not respond to account verification requests;
(e) you do not complete account verification when requested within three (3) months of the date of request;
(f) you are the subject of a sanctions regime, or our banking and payment relationships otherwise preclude us from conducting business with you;
(g) to manage any risk of loss to us, a User, or any other person; or
(h) for other similar reasons.

If we close your Account due to your breach of this User Agreement, you may also become liable for certain fees as described in this User Agreement.

Without limiting our other remedies, to the extent you have breached this User Agreement, you must pay us all fees owed to us and reimburse us for all losses and costs (including any and all of our employee time) and reasonable expenses (including legal fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees.

You acknowledge and agree that: (a) the damages that we will sustain as a result of your breach of this User Agreement will be substantial and will potentially include (without limitation) fines and other related expenses imposed on us by our payment processors and Users and that those damages may be extremely difficult and impracticable to ascertain; (b) if you breach this User Agreement, we may fine you up to United States Dollars Two Thousand (USD2,000.00) for each breach and/or we may take legal action against you to recover losses that are in excess of this amount; (c) a fine of up to United States Dollars Two Thousand (USD2,000.00) is a presently reasonable pre-estimate or minimum estimate of our damages, considering all currently existing circumstances, including (without limitation) the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to us that reasonably could be anticipated and the anticipation that proof of actual damages may be impractical or extremely difficult; and (d) we may release the entire (or part of the) amount of the fine from your Account to us.

If we close your Account for a reason other than as a result of your breach of this User Agreement, unless as otherwise specified in this User Agreement, you will be entitled to receive any payment due from us to you.

In the event that we close your Account, you will have no claim whatsoever against us in respect of any such suspension or termination of your Account.

22. Advance Payments

We do not operate an escrow service. We do however, provide a service which allows controlled advance payments to be made by the end of each month with respect to a service to be rendered in the following month (the “Advance Payment System”).

This Advance Payment System is an optional service available to Users who wish to use the Procolony Website for paying or receiving Service Fees for Projects, as Buyers who engage freelance contractors or Sellers who operate as freelance contractors.

Employers who use the Procolony Website to list job vacancies but subsequently employ the Professionals directly as their employees will not use our Advance Payment System.

Sections (a) to (c) below apply to Buyers and Sellers who opt to use our Advance Payment System:

(a) The Buyer is required to make an Advance Payment, which will be locked from the Buyer's Account for services payable in the following month, and cannot be claimed by the Seller until:
(i) the Buyer and Seller agree that the funds can be claimed by the Seller;
(ii) the Buyer instructs us to pay a Seller for services performed by the Seller in respect of a project; or
(iii) the Buyer acknowledges that the Seller has completed the services fully and satisfactory.

(b) If we have not received any instructions from a Buyer in respect of an Advance Payment within twelve (12) months after the day that the Advance Payment was paid and the Buyer has not logged into their Account during that time, the Advance Payment will be unlocked and released back to the Buyer.

(c) Procolony charges commission and handling fees for each payment processed, based on our schedule of Fees and Charges.

23. Disputes With Users

You acknowledge and agree that in the event that a dispute arises between you and another User in relation to any project, you will first attempt to resolve any differences that you have in relation to such Project, including in relation to the quality of the services provided.

In relation to disputes with any other users of the Website, you hereby agree to indemnify Procolony from any and all claims, demands, and damages, actual and consequential, of every kind and nature, known and unknown, that is related to such a dispute.

In relation to payments for services provided by Sellers, Procolony will not entertain any payment disputes relating to projects where the Buyer and Seller choose to circumvent our Advance Payment System.

24. Disputes With Procolony

If a dispute arises between you and Procolony, our goal is to address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a means of resolving the dispute quickly.

We strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by emailing us at support@procolony.com.

For any claim, Procolony may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost-effective manner through arbitration. If Procolony elects arbitration, such arbitration will be initiated through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider, which is to be selected by you from a panel of ADR providers that Procolony will provide to you. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

All claims you bring against Procolony must be resolved in accordance with the terms of this User Agreement. All claims filed or brought contrary to this User Agreement shall be considered improperly filed and a breach of this User Agreement. Should you file a claim contrary to the terms of this User Agreement, Procolony may recover its legal fees and costs (including in-house lawyers and paralegals), provided that Procolony has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.

If any proceeding by or against you is commenced under any provision of any bankruptcy or insolvency law, Procolony will be entitled to recover all reasonable costs or expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) incurred in connection with the enforcement of this User Agreement.

Procolony's failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.

25. Currencies

All transactions in Procolony are conducted in United States Dollars (USD). 

26. Release

If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) 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.

27. Access and Interference

34. No Insurance

We do not offer any form of insurance, or other Buyer or Seller protection.

35. No Warranty As To Each User's Purported Identity

Because User identification on the internet is difficult, we cannot and do not confirm each User's purported identity. We may provide information about a User, such as geographical location, or perform third party background check or verification of identity or credentials. However, such information is based solely on data that the User submits and we provide such information solely for the convenience of Users and the provision of such information is not an introduction, endorsement or recommendation by us.

36. No Warranty As To Content On The Website

The Website is a dynamic time-sensitive website. As such, information on the Website will change frequently. Our Services, the Website and all content on it are provided on an 'as is', 'with all faults' and 'as available' basis and without warranties of any kind either express or implied. Without limiting the foregoing, we make no representation or warranty about:

(a) the Procolony Website or any Seller Services;
(b) the accuracy, reliability, availability, veracity, timeliness or content of the Procolony Website or any Seller Services;
(c) whether the Procolony Website or Seller Services will be up-to-date, uninterrupted, secure, error-free or non-misleading;

(f) any third party agreements or any guarantee of business gained by you through the Procolony Website or Seller Services or us; or
(g) the Procolony Website, Seller Services or infrastructure on which they are based, being error or malicious code free, secure, confidential or performing at any particular standard or having any particular function.

To the extent permitted by law, we specifically disclaim any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, quality, suitability and non-infringement.

37. Limitation Of Liability

(a) any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages that may be incurred by you;
(b) any loss of income, business or profits (whether direct or indirect) that may be incurred by you; or
(c) any claim, damage, or loss which may be incurred by you as a result of any of your transactions involving the Procolony Website.

We will not be liable, and you will not be entitled to a refund for service outages that are caused by our maintenance on the servers or the technology that underlies the Service, failures of our service providers (including telecommunications, hosting and power providers), computer viruses, natural disasters or other destruction or damage of our facilities, an act of nature, war, civil disturbance, court order, legislative or regulatory action, catastrophic weather condition, computer virus, third party interference or other cause beyond our reasonable control.

The limitations on our liability to you above shall apply whether or not we, our related entities, our affiliates or staff have been advised of the possibility of such losses or damages arising.

Notwithstanding the above provisions, nothing in this User Agreement is intended to limit or exclude any liability on the part of us and our affiliates and related entities where and to the extent that applicable law prohibits such exclusion or limitation and relevant state fair trading legislation.

To the extent that we are able to limit the remedies available under this User Agreement, we expressly limit our liability for breach of a non-excludable condition or warranty implied by virtue of any legislation to the following remedies (the choice of which is to be at our sole discretion) to the supply of the Procolony services again or the payment of the cost of having the Procolony services supplied again.

38. Jurisdiction Limitations

As some jurisdictions do not allow some of the exclusions or limitations as established above, some of these exclusions or limitations may not apply to you. In that event, the liability will be limited as far as legally possible under the applicable legislation.

We may plead this User Agreement in bar to any claim, action, proceeding or suit brought by you, against us for any matter arising out of any transaction or otherwise in respect of this User Agreement

40. No Class Actions

You and we agree that you and we will only be permitted to bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and we agree otherwise, you will not apply to consolidate or join more than one person's or party's claims.

44. Interpretation

Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.

45. No Waiver
