  • 6 Using the Services as a Job Poster

  • 6.1 As a Job Poster, the Website provides you with the opportunity to:
  • (a) post and manage your Jobs (including identifying the time frames, duties, hours of work and opportunities presented to the Workers), view the profiles of Workers that may be suitable for the Jobs, and engage Workers to perform Jobs for you on an ad hoc basis for an agreed fee (the “Job Fee”);
    • (b) view Packages with varying benefits and services and purchase the Packages that are suitable for you for an agreed monthly fee (the “Package Fee”); and
    • (c) request the Worker to perform additional services which falls outside the scope of the Job or Package by purchasing an Upgrade and paying the agreed fee (the “Upgrade Fee”).
  • 6.2 With respect to:
    • (a) the Jobs, the Job Fee must be transferred, in full to JO prior to the Job being listed on the Website;
    • (b) the Packages, the Package Fee must be paid monthly in advance prior to you being able to access the benefits under the Packages; and
    • (c) The Upgrades, the Upgrade Fee must be paid in advance prior to the commencement of the additional services purchased by way of the Upgrade.
  • 6.3 Where agreed to by the parties, the Job and Job Fee can be separated into stages for completion (the “Job Completion Stages”) and released pursuant to the following confirmation process:
    • (a) on the proposed completion of the Job Completion Stage, the Worker can click the accept button on the Website to receive payment of the portion of the Job Fee allocated to that Job Completion Stage (the “Job Completion Stage Fee”) (or, where applicable, for the whole Job Fee if there are no separate Job Completion Stages);
    • (b) JO will then automatically send a notice to the Job Poster advising that the Worker wishes to have the Job Fee or Job Completion Stage Fee released to them;
    • (c) the Job Poster can, where they agree that the Job or Job Completion Stage has been completed, click the release funds button to release the relevant payment to the Worker; and
    • (d) If the Job Poster does not mark the Job as “complete” but the work has been completed, the Worker can request for the funds to be released. The Job Poster must consent to or reject the release of the funds within 48 hours of the request being made. If the Job Poster does not respond to the request within the time specified in this clause, then the Job Poster will be deemed to have consented to the release of the funds.
  • 6.4 Within 7 days of the Job Poster being introduced to a Worker, the Job Poster will contact the Worker to discuss whether the Subscription is fit for the Job Poster’s purpose. The Job Poster and the Worker acknowledge and agree that the variety of services which are offered pursuant to the chosen Package may be varied, altered or amended from time to time by the Job Poster and Worker, based on the Job Poster’s disclosed requirements to the Worker (the “Variation”). By way of example, if a Job Poster purchases the Facebook & Instagram Advertising Gold Package, the Job Poster and Worker may vary the Gold Package to exclude the 2 x remarketing campaigns and allocate the estimated resources instead to the Facebook advertisement variations. The Worker acknowledges and agrees that JO is not responsible or liable to the Job Poster or Worker in the event of a Variation to the Job or Package from what is represented and found on the Website. In the event the resources which are allocated to a particular Job or Package are unable to be completed by way of the Variation, then the Worker will request, and the Job Poster must pay, the Upgrade Fee at the time of the purchase of the Upgrade.
  • 6.5 As a Job Poster, you acknowledge and understand that the level of service provided to you by a Worker will depend on various factors such as:
    • (a) whether you are prompt and responsive to the Worker’s request for instruction, directions, information and/or approval;
    • (b) the complexity of the issues, strategy or your instructions and delivery of your materials to the Worker;
    • (c) the number and duration of telephone calls between you and the Worker;
    • (d) the number of email correspondences or messages you sent to the Worker to deliver your instructions;
    • (e) whether your instructions are varied;
    • (f) whether documents have to be revised in light of varied instructions; and
    • (g) the level of cooperation with the Worker.
  • 6.6 Where you have purchased a Service which allocates a specific number of hours for the provision of a particular task or job, you understand that that allocation of hours is an estimate only. In the event that you are not in strict compliance with clause 6.5 above, or the material provided to the Worker is greater than what was disclosed during any representations made by you prior to purchasing the Services, then the Worker is not responsible to complete all of the Services within the Job, Subscription or Package purchased once you exhaust the number of hours allocated for the Service, even if all of the hours were exhausted for the completion of one particular task. For example, if you purchase the Infusionsoft CRM Foundation Silver Package, 15 hours per month are allocated to these Services. If during the first month, all 15 hours are allocated towards the preparation of the scoping document, then you will not be entitled to the provision of any further services during the same month.
