    1. To Employer and Independent Contractor
      1. Conclusive Understanding of a Project It is between an Employer and a Freelancer that the terms of a project's engagement, contract, and management are negotiated and agreed upon. The Employer consents to purchase, and the Freelancer agrees to distribute, the services and associated tasks in full compliance with (a) the terms of the contract between the Employer and the Freelancer, including the Requested Project, the Scope Of the project, and any other terms and commitments communicated by the Employer and the Freelancer through the Official Site or otherwise, (b) The Terms of Service, and (c) Any other materials, such as those posted by the Employer or the Freelancer, to the Official site. You must not make any agreements that contradict our Terms of Service. Project Agreement terms that run counter to these Terms of Service are null and invalid. The Project Agreement requires the employer to manage, examine, accept, and pay for quality services and deliverables in a timely way. Freelancer is accountable for the timely delivery of high-quality work in compliance with the terms of the Project Agreement. In carrying out the Project Agreement, both the Employer and the Freelancer promise to do their best and behave fairly and in good faith toward one another.
      2. Independence Freelancers and Employers both believe that they are in the position of independent contractors. No collaboration, joint - venture, corporation, or employer-employee relationship is intended or created by these Terms of Service between the Freelancer and the Employer, either between Paperub and any Employer or Freelancer. You acknowledge and agree that Paperub is not liable for any Program, Project terms, or Work Product and does not in any way oversee, direct, supervise, or assess Freelancers or their activity.
      3.

According to the Project Agreement, Paperub has the right to request documentation at any moment.

Paperub disclaims any liability and makes no guarantees, express or implied, about the quality, safety, legality, or propriety of any services rendered or deliverables provided or marketed of project listings, the credentials, experience, or skills of Registered Users, the capacity of Freelancers to perform services, the financial stability of Employers to pay for services, or the likelihood that either an Employer or Freelancer will be able to or will complete a Project. Paperub does not participate in the selection, termination, punishment, or working conditions of a Freelancer, and thus cannot be held liable for the actions of any such individual. Employers and Freelancers are the only parties with any legal stake in the acquisition and selling of services or other deliverables. Nothing a Freelancer needs to finish a Project will be supplied by Paperub. All rights and responsibilities emerging from Project Agreements and any additional terms, conditions, depictions, or warranty claims related to such dealings are solely between the Employer and the Freelancer, and neither may rely on the other to implement or undertake any such terms, conditions, representations, or warranties.
      2. Third-Party Recipient of Project Agreement Each party to the Project Agreement recognizes and agrees that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Website are contingent upon the faithful fulfillment of the covenants and commitments between Employer and Freelancer. To enforce the responsibilities owing to Paperub and the advantages bestowed on Paperub by these Terms of Service, both Employer and Freelancer thus acknowledge and agree that Paperub is a third-party beneficiary of their Project Agreement. To safeguard the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Website, both Employers and Freelancers agree that Paperub may take such steps about the Project Agreement or their Accounts, including, but not limited to, suspension, termination, or any other legal proceedings.

Your Account will be suspended if Paperub gets the notification that it is not by any such law, rule, or regulation.
  4. Paperub FEES
    1. The Cost of Providing the Service, Part A When an employer pays a freelancer using Paperub's freelancer billing and payment services, Paperub deducts a charge from the payment.
      1. Investment Costs To use Paperub, all Freelancers must pay a Project Fee. Depending on the Freelancer's membership category on their profile, the Employer will be charged a fee that will be subtracted from the final project payment. One might expect to pay a freelancer a project fee of between 3 percent and 10 percent.
      2. Transaction Charge for Processing Employee Payments If an employer pays a freelancer, the freelancer will be charged an Employer Payment Processing Fee.
      3. Transfer Cost for Independent Contractors If a Freelancer requests payment to be sent through check, NEFT transfer, or PayPal, the Freelancer will be charged a Freelancer Transfer Method Fee, as detailed on the Website.

    1. Paperub Invoice Service:

      With Paperub's Invoice Service, both freelancers and businesses can send and receive invoices and payments with ease.

      1. General As soon as a Project is finished for an Employer, the Freelancer will send an electronic invoice form ("Invoice") to Paperub over the Website. A Freelancer must submit an Invoice to Paperub after completing each Project. The Independent Contractor will supply Paperub with a detailed list of the information that should be included on the Invoice ("Invoice Details"), such as the number of hours performed, the amount of money owed, and a description of the Project(s). Until such a Freelancer confirms the correctness of the Invoice Details or waives the right to examine the Invoice Details, the Invoice Details are not final. By agreeing not to check the Invoice Details, the Professional authorizes Paperub to include all information included within. Paperub RECOMMENDS THAT ALL CONTRACTORS CHECK THE FACTS OF THEIR INVOICES. Paperub shall provide the Employer with an Invoice, and the Employer must provide Paperub the amount mentioned in the Invoice ("Payment"). Paperub will subtract the relevant Service Charges owing to Paperub as indicated on the Website from the Payment made by an Employer via the Paperub Invoice Service and then send the remaining Payment to the Freelancer./li>
      2. Problems with Invoices Employer agrees to pay any undisputed amounts within the time limits indicated above and to assist with Vendor in verifying any disputed amounts if Employer reasonably disputes any Invoice. For as long as an Employer has a reasonable disagreement about any portion of an invoice, the Freelancer will not be paid for the work in question. Any Payment (minus any relevant Service Charge) that Paperub is obligated to make is explicitly conditioned upon:
        • Paperub has been paid by the relevant Employer.
        • Settling any pending disputes over such Bills and/or Payments.
    2. Security Vault Deposits with the Safe Deposit Service, businesses may hand off some of their payment duties to Paperub.
      1. General If an employer asks Paperub to handle the payment for a freelancer's services, and the employer pays Paperub in advance for those services, Paperub will handle the payment for the freelancer's services (less applicable Service Charge). Freelancers will not be paid by Paperub unless an Employer has accepted those services. Upon transferring monies to Paperub, you agree that Paperub will immediately become the legal owner of those funds. If, however, (y) a Freelancer admits that services have not been accomplished, or (z) Employer and Freelancer have completed the procedures constituting the Dispute Resolution Service and the results demonstrate that Employer is the legitimate beneficiary of such funds, then Paperub tends to agree to refund such funds to Employer. If either Employer or Freelancer seeks a Dispute Settlement Service concerning the Assumed Payment Liability, Paperub shall keep both parties apprised of the progress of the request and advise them that the problem will be resolved via the Dispute Settlement Service.
      2. Arguments Over Safe Deposits Employer and Freelancer acknowledge that Paperub shall have no financial commitments to any party relating to the relevant payments until such disagreement is addressed in conformity with Section 6 below, even if the issue concerns the quality or completeness of services performed by such Freelancer. Any obligation on the part of Paperub to make a Payment (minus any applicable Service Charge) is explicitly conditioned to the settlement of any pending disputes about such Payment.
    3. Legal Relationship
      1. Funds sent to Paperub for any Assumed Payment Liabilities are not held on your behalf by Paperub.
      2. All payments made by Paperub to Freelancers for services performed for Employers must be duly discharged and credited to the appropriate Employers.
      3. Paperub facilitates online payments by developing, hosting, and offering freelancer billing and payment services.

Further, Paperub has no say over whether or not the underlying transaction between an Employer and Freelancer will be completed. Paperub assumes no liability for the timeliness or correctness of invoicing or the accuracy, completeness, or quality of work provided by a Freelancer in response to a granted Project.
      4. To use Paperub's Billing and Payment Services, you must agree to the following.
        • Administratively, Paperub provides Registered Users with billing and payment services without acting as a trustee or fiduciary on behalf of Employers or Freelancers.
        • The Paperub Billing and Payment Services are not banking services but instead merchant services. Paperub is not a "financial institution."
        • Paperub is not a bank, thus money sent via the service is not FDIC-insured and may be lost if the recipient doesn't pay or if the sender goes bankrupt.
    4. Other Financial Arrangements
      1. If a transaction is declined due to the Cardholder's spending exceeding a certain limit that has been predetermined by us and our acquiring bank, we will not be held liable for any losses or damages that may result, either directly or indirectly.
      2. When a payment is authorized, it is final. You agree to reimburse Paperub any sums that you permit us to withhold from purchases and, as applicable, charge to your credit card, bank account, or PayPal account by using the Paperub Billing and Payment Services. Once these types of payments have been approved, they cannot be reversed. After an organization accepts the services provided,
        • Any future obligation on Paperub's side for Payment for such services is expressly excluded.
        • About Employer's payment of Paperub's Assumed Payment Liability or Invoice, as applicable, Employer agrees that Paperub has performed the agreed-upon services in full and promptly.
        • The Employer thus absolves Paperub of all responsibility for the Payment.
      3. Chargebacks, Fraudulent Transactions, and Transactional Errors and Duplications If Paperub detects a fraudulent transaction, an error, or a duplicate transaction, or if Paperub gets a chargeback or reversal from any Employer's credit card company, bank, or PayPal for any reason, Paperub may demand compensation from you, and you agree to compensate Paperub. Paperub has the right to look into any transactions for signs of fraud, which you agree to and recognize. You also agree to help Paperub with any reasonable demands it makes throughout its fraud investigations. Paperub may seek recovery via any legitimate methods, including the use of a third-party collection agency, including billing your Account, withholding sums from future transfers, charging your credit card or any bank account linked with your Account, or otherwise. Your Account will be closed if you fail to pay any amounts owed as a result of a chargeback or payment reversal.
      4. Currency. Paperub is not responsible for any losses incurred as a result of foreign exchange rate fluctuations that arise when billing or crediting a credit or debit card denominated in a currency other than INR or when receiving or making a payment via check, NEFT Transfer, credit card account, or PayPal account, as all of these services are conducted in INR.

You also agree to reimburse Paperub for any interest, legal fees, and other collection expenses incurred by Paperub in its pursuit of the permitted but unpaid sum. If this happens, Paperub has the right to cease accepting payments from you and allocate any funds held by Paperub on your behalf to any shortfalls, losses, or expenses we've incurred as a consequence of you using the Paperub Billing and Payment Services. We reserve the right to submit relevant information to relevant third parties (such as credit bureaus, banks, tax authorities, and law enforcement), and to assist fully with any investigation or prosecution that may come from such reporting.
      8. Competition Guaranteed. Once the prize money for a Guaranteed Contest has been paid, it cannot be refunded even if the customer requests the cancellation of the contest during the 24-hour grace period. If one of those things happens, the Guaranteed Contest will be called off and the prize money will be returned.

    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").

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:

      • $3500; or
      • If the client gives the freelancer a job directly, the sum equals 20% of the expected annualized pay or compensation for one year; otherwise, it's none of the client'
      • All Service Fees that Paperub would receive from the Paperub Relationship during the Non-Circumvention Period, calculated using the annualized amount earned by Freelancer from Client during the most recent normalized 8-week period, or such shorter period for which data is available to Paperub;

      Instructions on how to submit payment for the Opt-Out Fee may be requested by sending an email to optout@paperub.com.
