PRIVACY – OURS, YOURS AND THEIRS
Sellers confirm that whatever information they receive from the buyer, which is not public domain, shall not be used for any purpose whatsoever other than for the delivery of the work to the buyer. Furthermore, users (both buyers and sellers) agree that unless they explicitly indicate otherwise, the content users voluntarily create/upload to SmaTask, including Gig texts, photos, videos, usernames, user photos, user videos and any other information, including the display of delivered work, may be used by SmaTask for no consideration for marketing and/or other purposes. SmaTask does not check user uploaded/created content for violations of copyrights, trademarks or other rights. We invite everyone to report suspected violations together with proof of ownership. Reported violating content will be removed. By offering a service, the seller undertakes that he has sufficient permissions, rights and/or licenses to provide, sell or resell the service that they offer on SmaTask.
Buyers will communicate with sellers about thye payment and Buyers will send the payment to the agreed payment method. SmaTask will not credit any amount from the buyers and sellers. If an order is cancelled (for any reason), the payment funds will be returned to the buyer. Sellers may withdraw their revenues to a PayPal account of their choice. Both buyers and sellers have the option to cancel an order by mutual agreement. Unanswered mutual cancellation requests will be automatically accepted after 48 hours. A Seller may cancel an order without the buyer's consent at any given moment ("Force Cancellation"). To protect our users' privacy, user identities should be kept anonymous. Requesting or providing Email addresses, Skype/IM usernames, telephone numbers or any other personal contact details (Other than your name) is not permitted. All communications, information and files exchange must be performed exclusively using SmaTask's messaging system. Posting or sending adult, illegal, rude, abusive, improper, copyright protected, promotional, spam, violent, or anything determined to be offensive is strictly prohibited. Doing so will get your account blocked permanently.
DELIVERY & COMMUNICATION
You are responsible to scan all transferred files for viruses and malware. SmaTask will not be responsible for any damages which might occur due to site usage, use of content or files transferred. Responding and posting a review: once work is delivered, the buyer has 3 days to respond and post a review (or 14 days for Gigs with shipping). If no response is provided within the respond time, the order will be considered completed.
Gigs will be paid according to the agreement between the buyer and the seller. To protect your privacy, avoid requesting or providing Email addresses, Skype/IM usernames, telephone numbers or any other personal contact information. SmaTask will not be responsible to any problem about the payment since we will not credit any amount from you.
Always try and work things out with your seller. If you need further assistance, contact our customer support. Order cancellations (when eligible) can be done by customer support only up to a period of 10 days from order completion date. We will not be able to cancel orders after that time.
Some of the services on SmaTask are delivered physically (arts and crafts, collectable items etc). For this type of gigs, sellers may decide to add additional charges for shipping. Sellers can add shipping prices for local shipping (within the same country) and for international shipping (anywhere else). Buyers who order Gigs that require physical delivery, will be asked to provide a shipping address. Sellers are responsible for all shipping arrangements once the buyer supplies the shipping address. SmaTask does not handle or guarantee shipping, tracking, quality and condition of items or their delivery and shall not be responsible or liable for any damages or other problems resulting from shipping. We recommend entering the tracking number (if available) in the order page when delivering your work.
Violation of SmaTask's Terms of Service may get your account permanently blocked. SmaTask reserves the right to put any account on hold or permanently cancel accounts due to breach of these terms or any illegal or inappropriate use of the site or services. Users with accounts on hold will not be able to sell or buy on SmaTask. SmaTask may make changes to its Terms of Service from time to time. You understand and agree that if you use SmaTask after the date on which the Terms of Service have changed, SmaTask will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Terms of Service. We encourage our buyers and sellers to try and settle conflicts amongst themselves. If for any reason this fails, users can contact SmaTask's customer support department for assistance here.
Ownership and limitations: unless clearly stated otherwise in the Gig description text, when the work is delivered, the buyer is granted all intellectual property rights, including but not limited to, copyrights for the work delivered from the seller and the seller waives any and all moral rights therein. For removal of doubt, in custom created work (such as art work, design work, report generation etc.), the delivered service shall be the exclusive property of buyer. The seller expressly agrees to assign to buyer the copyright in any delivered services that do not meet the requirements of a work-for-hire under the U.S. Copyright Act. Additionally, independent of the U.S. Copyright Act, the seller agrees that unless he indicated otherwise in the Gig description, once the order is completed the seller assigns along with it to the buyer, to the fullest extent possible under the law, all of its rights, title and interest, if any, in and to the delivered service and waives any and all moral rights in connection therewith.
