Our Site is a marketplace where Clients and freelancers can identify each other and advertise, buy and sell freelancer Services online. Subject to the Terms of Service, Myfreelancer provides the Site Services to users, including Hosting and maintaining the Site, enabling the formation of Service contracts. If users agree on terms for freelancer Services, a Service contract is formed directly between such users. When a user enters a Service contract, the user uses the Site to engage, communicate, invoice and pay online.
A contract between Client and freelancer is done on the basis of their terms. Service contract is comprised of the following agreements: - (a) the engagement terms awarded and accepted on the Site to the extent that the terms do not, and do not purport to, expand Myfreelancer’s obligations or restrict Myfreelancer’s right under the terms of Service. (b) The terms in all sections, unless other terms are agreed by the parties, to the extent that the provisions do not, and do not purport to, expand Myfreelancer’s obligations or restrict Myfreelancer’s right under the Terms of Service. (c) Any other contractual provisions accepted by both the Client and the freelancer, to the extent that the provisions do not, and do not purport to, expand Myfreelancer’s obligations or restrict Myfreelancer’s right under the Terms of Service.

However we take the full responsibility for the completion of any project and the payment of freelancer appointed for that project.
Freelancer and Client both have to pay a fee to use Myfreelancer’s Services. Whenever any Client proposes a project and the Freelancer who is appointed for that project, we will take 6% of the project cost from both Client and the freelancer. The cost of project will be mutually decided by the Client and the freelancer.
There is no membership fee for registering for an account at Myfreelancer but we take 6% of cost of the project from both Client and Freelancer after the completion of project.
Myfreelancer does not introduce Clients to Freelancers and does not help Freelancers secure engagements. Myfreelancer merely makes the Site Services available to enable Freelancer to do so themselves. Therefore, Myfreelancer does not charge a fee when a Freelancer finds a suitable Client or finds an engagement. However, a client and a freelancer are obligated to use the Site to pay and receive payment for their work together if they identified each other through the Site, and after the completion of project they both i.e. Client and Freelancer have to pay 6% of the cost of project. In addition, Myfreelancer does not charge any fee or dues for posting public feedback and composite or compiled feedback.
In case, when a Client fails to pay payments or any other amounts due under the Terms of Service to the Freelancer, we will take the full responsibility to make the due payment.

(b) Client is legally authorized to perform payments using the payment method.
There are few Service contracts which both Client and Freelancer have to agree before entering into any Service contracts.

Users may agree between them on any additional or different terms for their Service Contract as long as such terms do not purport to affect the rights or responsibilities of Myfreelancer or violate the Terms of Service.
Users agree that the terms concerning the Service Contract described on the Site, including Freelancer Fees, rates, hours, and milestones, form part of the Service Contract. Users agree to obtain the consent of the other before making changes to the Service Contract by adding additional or different milestones or making other changes to the Service Contract on the Site. If consent of the other party is not first obtained, the other party may reject such changes by terminating the Service Contract or accept such changes by continuing to work on the Service Contract.
