You also acknowledge, agree, and understand that Customers are solely responsible for determining, and have the sole right to determine, which projects to accept; the time, place, manner, and means of providing any Customer Services; the type of services they provide; and the price they charge for their services or how that pricing is determined or set.

Users are free at all times to engage in such other business activities and services and are encouraged to do so.

3. CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CLIENT AND CUSTOMER
3.1 SERVICE CONTRACTS
If a Client and Customer decide to enter into a Service Contract, the Service Contract is a contractual relationship directly between the Client and Customer. Client and Customer have complete discretion both with regard to whether to enter into a Service Contract with each other and with regard to the terms of any Service Contract. You acknowledge, agree, and understand that we are not a party to any Service Contract, that the formation of a Service Contract between Users will not, under any circumstance, create an employment or other service relationship between Yata Pay Secure and any Customer or a partnership or joint venture between Yata Pay Secure and any User.
With respect to any Service Contract, Clients and Customers may enter into any written agreements that they deem appropriate (e.g., confidentiality agreements, invention assignment agreements, assignment of rights, etc.) provided that any such agreements do not conflict with, narrow, or expand our rights and obligations under the Terms of Service, including this Agreement and the Escrow Instructions . The parties to a Service Contract can, if the parties prefer, agree to the Optional Service Contract Terms* in whole or in part, in addition to or instead of other such agreements.
The Optional Service Contract Terms are provided as a sample only and may not be appropriate for all jurisdictions or all contracts. Users are responsible for complying with any local requirements. We do not assume any responsibility for any consequence of using the Optional Service Contract Terms. The Optional Service Contract Terms are not intended to and do not (a) constitute legal advice, (b) create a solicitor-client relationship, or (c) constitute advertising or a solicitation of any type. Each situation is highly fact-specific and requirements vary by situation and jurisdiction and therefore any party should seek independent legal advice. We expressly disclaim any and all liability with respect to actions or omissions based on the Optional Service Contract Terms.
3.2 DISPUTES AMONG USERS
For disputes arising between Clients and Freelancers, you agree to abide by the dispute process that is explained in the Escrow Instructions. If the dispute process does not resolve your dispute, you may pursue your dispute independently, but you acknowledge and agree that we will not and is not obligated to provide any dispute assistance beyond what is provided in the Escrow Instructions.
If Customer or Client intends to obtain an order from any arbitrator or any court that might direct us, the assigned Payment Service Provider (as defined below), or our Affiliates to take or refrain from taking any action with respect to an Escrow Account, that party will (a) give us at least five business days’ prior notice of the hearing; (b) include in any such order a provision that, as a precondition to obligation affecting us or Payment Service Provider, we be paid in full for any amounts to which we would otherwise be entitled; and (c) be paid for the reasonable value of the services to be rendered pursuant to such order.
3.3 CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
Users may agree to any terms they deem appropriate with respect to confidentiality, including those set forth in the Optional Service Contract Terms. If and to the extent that the Users do not articulate any different agreement, then they agree that this Section 3.3 (Confidentiality) applies.
To the extent a User provides Confidential Information to the other, the recipient will protect the secrecy of the discloser’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than due care. On a User’s written request, the party that received Confidential Information will promptly destroy or return the disclosing party’s Confidential Information and any copies thereof contained in or on its premises, systems, or any other equipment otherwise under its control.
3.4 THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARIES
It is the intent of the parties to this Agreement that Users who have entered into Service Contracts or disclosed or received Confidential Information to another User are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement with respect to this Section 3 only.
4. WORKER CLASSIFICATION
Nothing in this Agreement is intended to or should be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, franchisor/franchisee or employer-employee relationship between Yata Pay Secure and a User.
Client is solely responsible for and has complete discretion with regard to selection of any Customer for any project. Client is solely responsible, warrants its decisions regarding classification are correct, and assumes all liability, for determining whether Customers should be engaged as independent contractors or employees of Client and engaging them accordingly; we will have no input into, or involvement in, worker classification as between Client and Customer and Users agree we have no involvement in and will have no liability arising from or relating to the classification of a Customer generally or with regard to a particular project.
5. YATAPAY SECURE FEES
Section 5 describes what fees you agree to pay to YataPay Secure in exchange for YataPay Secure providing the Web App and Web App Services to you and what taxes YataPay Secure may collect, as detailed below.
Customers pay Yata Pay Secure a Service Fee (as defined in this Section 5.1) for the use of the Web App Services. Yata Pay Secure charges service fees to Customers for using the apps communication, reporting, dispute resolution and payment services, as described in the Escrow Instructions (the “Service Fee(s)”). The Service Fees (to use the Web App Services) are paid solely by Customer. When a Client pays a Customer for a project or when funds related to a project are otherwise released to a Customer as required by the Escrow Instructions (See Section 6.1), Payment Service Provider will credit the freelancer Escrow Account for the full amount paid or released, and then subtract and disburse to Yata Pay Secure the Service Fee. Customer hereby irrevocably authorizes and instructs the Payment Service Provider to deduct the Service Fee from the Customer Escrow Account and pay YataPay Secure on the Tradeperson’s behalf.
Pursuant to the User Agreement, we charge Customers a Service Fee for each payment their Client makes to the Customer on a Service Contract. This will be 1.9% of all fees collected by Customer from Client.

Unless both you and we expressly agree otherwise in writing, either of us may terminate this Agreement in our sole discretion, at any time, without explanation, upon written notice to the other, which will result in the termination of the other Terms of Service as well, except as otherwise provided herein. You may provide written notice to email@example.com. In the event you properly terminate this Agreement, your right to use the Web App and Web App Services is automatically revoked, and your Account will be closed. We are not a party to any Service Contract between Users. Consequently, User understands and acknowledges that termination of this Agreement (or attempt to terminate this Agreement) does not terminate or otherwise impact any Service Contract or project entered into between Users.

If you attempt to use the Web App under a different Account, we reserve the right to reclaim available funds in that Account to pay for any amounts owed by you to the extent permitted by applicable law.
You acknowledge and agree that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Web App depend on transparency of User’s Account status to all Users, including both yourself and other Users who have entered into Service Contracts with you.

For example, the provisions requiring arbitration, permitting audits, protecting intellectual property, requiring non- circumvention, indemnification, payment of fees, reimbursement and setting forth limitations of liability each, by their nature, contemplate performance or observance after this Agreement terminates. Without limiting any other provisions of the Terms of Service, the termination of this Agreement for any reason will not release you or Yata Payments Ltd. from any obligations incurred prior to termination of this Agreement or that thereafter may accrue in respect of any act or omission prior to such termination.
