To access the full Salesforceworks site, both Clients and Freelancers will be required to register an account in order to access the Site. Accordingly, you must complete the registration process by providing us with current, complete and accurate information about yourself as prompted by the applicable registration form. You agree not to provide any false or misleading information about your identity or location, your business, your skills, or the services your business provides and to correct any such information that is or becomes false or misleading.
Although user accounts will be personal, Users may trade under incorporated or unincorporated legal entities. Users cannot register for more than one account.
You will be prompted to choose a username and password for your Account. As a User, it is your responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your account details and password. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.
By registering an Account with us, you consent to create a User profile which may be shown to other Salesforceworks Users and, unless you change your privacy settings, the public.
By accessing or using the Site, you warrant that:

We reserve the right to restrict your access, temporarily or indefinitely block your account, stop any projects you have in progress, and or warn other Users of your actions or issue you a warning if:
- a) You breach these terms of service or other referenced policies;
- b) We are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide to us;

Without prejudice to the foregoing, we may, at our absolute discretion, refuse to register any person or entity as a User. You cannot transfer or assign any rights or obligations you have under these Terms of Service without our express prior approval.
Identity and Location verification
From time to time to time after you register an Account with us, your Account will be subject to verification, including, but not limited to, validation against third-party databases or the verification of one or more official government or legal documents that confirm your identity, your location, and your ability to act on behalf of your business on the Site.

Membership Fees and connects
Freelancers shall pay Salesforceworks a membership charge of $ 2.99 per month. The membership charges will be deducted from the Payment method provided by the Freelancer on the due date. The membership billing period begins on the date that we receive payment.
In addition, the Freelancer shall purchase “Connects” to enable bidding for Client Projects.
DELIVERY OF SERVICES
Project Postings, interviews and hiring
The process of hiring Freelancers on the Site shall begin with posting of the Buyer’s project. The Buyer will need to provide their requirements so that interested and qualified Freelancers can be able to place their bids.
We encourage buyers to be specific in their project description and to set out the deliverables expected as well as the Buyer’s deadlines or timescales. Additionally, the Buyer should indicate a realistic budget for the work to attract good quality Freelancers.
In response to Buyer project postings, Freelancers may submit bids for the projects they consider fit for their skills and availability. Upon interviews between a Buyer and a Freelancer, the Buyer may hire the Freelancer by sending an offer to the Freelancer, which the Freelancer may accept.
Before accepting a Buyer’s offer, a Freelancer must be sure of what the terms of the project are: the scope of the services to be offered; the amount to be paid as compensation for the services; deadlines, among other details.
Please note that the Site does not provide Escrow Account services and therefore, parties shall take the necessary precautions to safeguard their interests over funds.
Fees and Payment
A Freelancer shall be charge fees for projects either based on an agreed fixed price as an hourly-rate project. The amount of fees and mode of payment for the fees shall be based solely on the agreement between the Freelancer and the Buyer. For the avoidance of doubt, no charges or commission shall be payable to Salesforceworks in respect of Projects. Additions, Users shall be at liberty to transact within or outside the Site.
Freelancers must strive to deliver a high standard of work, appropriately meeting their Buyer’s needs and deadlines. In this regard, Freelancers have a duty to ensure that their work is free from errors and meets the project description provided by the Buyer.

FEEDBACK AND REVIEWS
When a project is completed and the Freelancer has been paid by the Buyer, both parties are asked to provide both qualitative feedback and a rating from 1-5 for the other party. This rating influences each User’s ranking on the Site. A review (feedback) is published on the member profile page when both parties (Buyer and Freelancer) leave their feedback within the first 60 days since invoice payment (funds released / amount paid).
Both parties should complete the feedback honestly. Users must not falsify feedback, manipulate or coerce another User by threatening negative feedback or offer incentives in exchange for feedback.
Feedback comments that are reported to us as defamatory, abusive or offensive will be reviewed and may be removed at our discretion. We are entitled to suspend or terminate your Account at any time if we, in our sole and absolute discretion, are concerned by any feedback about you, or your feedback rating, where we believe our feedback system may be subverted.
