Until you deposit an Opt-Out-Fee, as described below in "Section 7," you undertake to send and receive transactions only via Paperub for two years from the day you first encounter your Clients or Freelancer on the Website.
You recognize and acknowledge that the Paperub Fee specified in Section 4 is a significant component of the money Paperub receives for making the Web site accessible to you. Service Fees are paid to Paperub only after a Client and a Freelancer completes a transaction on the Site. Therefore, you acknowledge utilizing the Site as your preferential method to demand, create, and end up receiving all payouts for work directly or indirectly with that party or originating out of your relationship with that party (the "Paperub Relationship") for 24 months from the time you identify or are identified by any party through the Site (the "Non-Circumvention Period"). For the preservation of dispute, the Non-Circumvention Period does not apply if you or the company you represented did not recognize and were not identifiable by another party via the Site, such as if you and then another User worked together before the meeting on the Site. The Non-Circumvention Period applies to you and any other employees, agents, or representatives of your company while acting in such a capacity about the other User if you use the Site in the course of your employment, agency, or representation.
If anybody ever recommends that you make or accept payments outside of the Site in contravention of this Section 6, you will immediately inform Paperub. If you become aware of a violation or suspected violation of this non-circumvention agreement, you undertake to notify Paperub in a private report through email at legal-reports@Paperub.com.
If you decide to stop using the Site because you don't agree to the updated Terms of Service or because you don't want to comply with certain conditions of using the Site (like the minimum rates supported on the Site), you can pay the Opt-Out Fee for each other User you want to keep on working with on whatever terms you accept after you stop using the Site.
Only if the Client or potential Client or Freelancer pays Paperub an opt-out charge for every such connection (the "Opt-Out Fee") may you opt out of the obligations in Section 6 about each Paperub Relationship.
This is how the Opt-Out Fee is calculated:
Instructions on how to submit payment for the Opt-Out Fee may be requested by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
