2. SCOPE OF PLATFORM SERVICES
Section 2 discusses what CoinBeast does and does not do when providing the Platform and Platform Services and some of your responsibilities when using the Platform to provide or enter into a Services Contract as a Pro or User, as detailed below.
2.1 Purpose of CoinBeast
CoinBeast is not an investment, financial advisory, technical advisory, legal, business, or accounting firm and is not authorized to directly provide Services to Users. At no time does CoinBeast provide any Pro Advice. We provide an online marketplace that enables Users to easily, transparently and conveniently identify, hire, and meet with Pros over our Platform. You do need not to download or license any CoinBeast software to advertise, provide or obtain Services over our Platform. Our Platform provides features to allow Users and Pros to access, communicate and collaborate with each other to buy and sell Services online.
Subject to the Terms of Service, CoinBeast provides the Platform Services to Users, including hosting and maintaining the Website, facilitating the formation of Services Contracts, and assisting Users in resolving disputes which may arise in connection with those Services Contracts. When a User enters a Services Contract, the User uses the Website to invoice and pay any amounts owed under the Services Contract.
The Platform may include general information regarding Digital Currencies and recent events regarding the same. You acknowledge that Digital Currencies are very volatile, and that the information provided regarding Digital Currencies on the Platform should never be solely used when determining to invest, purchase, sell, or otherwise use any Digital Currencies. You must do your own research. At no time does CoinBeast review your answers for their sufficiency as Pro Advice, draw conclusions on your Pro Advice, provide Pro Advice, opinions, or recommendations about any investment, financial, technical, legal, business, or accounting strategies, or apply the law, economic, financial, or investment models, technical Proise, or accounting methods to the facts of your particular situation. CoinBeast is not an investment or an advisory firm nor is it a broker-dealer and may not perform services performed by any broker-dealer, advisor, or act or perform any restricted activities pursuant to applicable law. At no time is a broker-dealer, lawyer, accounting, or engineering and client relationship fostered or created with CoinBeast and the User. Any information publicly provided on our Platform is not a substitute for the advice or services of a Pro.
2.2 Relationship with CoinBeast
CoinBeast merely makes the Platform and Platform Services available to enable Pros and Users to find and transact directly with each other online. CoinBeast does not introduce Pros to Users, find meetings or seminars for Pros, or find Pros for Users. Through the Platform and Platform Services, Pros may be notified of Users that may be seeking the Services a Pro offers, and Users may be notified of Pros that may offer the Services they seek; at all times, however, Users are responsible for evaluating and determining the suitability of any meeting, session, seminar, Job, User or Pro on their own. If Users decide to enter into a Services Contract, that agreement is directly between the Users and CoinBeast is not a party to that Services Contract.
You acknowledge, agree, and understand that CoinBeast is not a party to the relationship or any dealings directly between User and Pro. Without limitation, Users are solely responsible for: (a) ensuring the accuracy and legality of any User Content; (b) determining the suitability of other Users for a Services Contract; (c) negotiating, agreeing to, and executing any terms or conditions of Services Contract(s); or (d) paying for Service Contracts or Services.
You further acknowledge, agree, and understand that you are solely responsible for assessing whether to enter into a Services Contract with another User and for verifying any information about another User, including their competency, Proise, or knowledge. CoinBeast does not make any representations about or guarantee the truth, quality, efficacy or accuracy of any Pro’s or User’s session, listing, meeting, or seminar or other User Content on the Platform; does not verify any feedback or information provided by Users about Pros or Users, as applicable; and does not vet or otherwise perform background checks on Pros or Users. You acknowledge, agree, and understand that CoinBeast does not, in any way, supervise, direct, control, or evaluate Pros or their work and is not responsible for any Services, meetings, sessions, or seminars. CoinBeast makes no representations about and does not guarantee, and you agree not to hold CoinBeast responsible for, the quality, reliability, accuracy, or effectiveness of Pros’ Services; the qualifications, background, or identities of Users; the ability of Pros to deliver Services; the ability of Users to pay for Services; User Content, statements or posts made by Users; or the ability or willingness of a User or Pro to actually complete a transaction.
You also acknowledge, agree, and understand that Pros are solely responsible for determining, and have the sole right to determine, which Jobs to accept; the time, place, manner, and means of providing any Services; the type(s) of Services to provide; and the price charged for their Services or how that pricing is determined or set.
Pros further acknowledge, agree, and understand that: (i) you are not an employee of CoinBeast, and you are not eligible for any of the rights or benefits of employment (including unemployment and/or workers compensation insurance); (ii) CoinBeast will not have any liability or obligations under or related to any Services Contracts and/or Services for any acts or omissions by you or other Users; (iii) CoinBeast is unable to and does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control any Pro or Services; does not impose quality standards or a deadline for completion of any Services; and does not dictate the performance, methods or process a Pro uses to provide Services; (iv) Pros are free to determine when and if to perform Services, including the days worked and time periods of work, and CoinBeast does not set or have any control over such Pro’s pricing, work hours, work schedules, or work location, nor is CoinBeast involved in any other way in determining the nature and amount of any compensation that may be charged by or paid to Pro for a Job; (v) Pros will be paid at such times and amounts as agreed with a User in a given Services Contract, and CoinBeast does not, in any way, provide or guarantee Pro a regular salary or any minimum, regular payment; (vi) CoinBeast does not provide Pros with training or any equipment, labor, tools, or materials related to any Services Contract; and (vii) CoinBeast does not provide the premises or at which Pros will perform any work.
Nothing in this Agreement is intended to prohibit or discourage (nor should be construed as prohibiting or discouraging) any User from engaging in any other business activities or providing any services through any other channels they choose. Users are free at all times to engage in such other business activities and services and are encouraged to do so.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, CoinBeast has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the quality, reliability, accuracy, or effectiveness of any Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Job descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Pro or any third party on the Platform. CoinBeast does not endorse any Pro or Services. Any references to a Pro being "verified" (or similar language) only indicates that the Pro has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by CoinBeast about any Pro’s ability or quality. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to hire a Pro, accept a Quote from a User, or communicate and interact with other Users, whether online or in person.
2.3 Marketplace Feedback and User Content
You hereby acknowledge and agree that Users publish and request CoinBeast to publish on their behalf information on the Platform about the User, such as feedback, composite feedback, geographical location, or verification of identity or credentials. However, such information is based solely on unverified data that Pros or Users voluntarily submit to CoinBeast and does not constitute and will not be construed as an introduction, endorsement, or recommendation by CoinBeast; we provide such information solely for the convenience of other Users, including Clients.
You acknowledge and agree that User feedback benefits the marketplace, all Users, and the efficiency of the Platform and you specifically request that CoinBeast post composite or compiled feedback about Users, including yourself, on User Profiles and elsewhere on the Platform. You acknowledge and agree that feedback results for you, including your Pro Ratings and Reviews, wherever referenced, and other User Content highlighted by CoinBeast on the Platform or otherwise (“Composite Information”), if any, will include User comments, User ratings, indicators of User satisfaction, and other feedback left exclusively by Users, but only Users a Pro has provided Services to over the Platform. You further acknowledge and agree that CoinBeast will make Composite Information available to Users, including composite or compiled feedback. CoinBeast provides its feedback system as a means through which Users can share their opinions of other Pros publicly, and CoinBeast does not monitor, influence, contribute to or censor these opinions. You acknowledge and agree that posted composite or compiled feedback and any other Composite Information relates only to the business advertised in the Profile and not to any individual person. You agree not to use the Composite Information to make any employment, credit, credit valuation, underwriting, or other similar decision about any other User.
CoinBeast does not generally investigate any remarks posted by Users or other User Content for accuracy or reliability and does not guarantee that User Content is accurate. You are solely responsible for your User Content, including the accuracy of any User Content, and are solely responsible for any legal action that may be instituted by other Users or third parties as a result of or in connection with your User Content if such User Content is legally actionable or defamatory. CoinBeast is not legally responsible for any feedback or comments posted or made available on the Website by any Users or third parties, even if that information is defamatory or otherwise legally actionable. In order to protect the integrity of the feedback system and protect Users from abuse, we reserve the right (but are under no obligation) to remove posted feedback or information that, in our sole judgment, violates the Terms of Service or negatively affects our marketplace, diminishes the integrity of the feedback system or otherwise is inconsistent with our business interests and the purposes of this Platform. You acknowledge and agree that you will notify us of any error or inaccurate statement in your feedback results, including the Composite Information, and that if you do not do so, we may rely on the accuracy of such information.
2.4 Referral or Affiliate Programs
From time to time, CoinBeast may implement a referral or affiliate marketing program to which Users may participate. CoinBeast reserves its right to amend the present Terms of Service to include additional terms and conditions pertaining to any referral or affiliate marketing program, which shall be compliant to any antitrust, competition, and consumer laws.

4. RELATIONSHIPS ON THE COINBEAST PLATFORM
Section 4 discusses the relationship you may decide to enter into with another User on the CoinBeast Platform, including Services Contracts between Pros and Clients.
4.1 Services on the Platform
When a Client decides to engage a Pro to obtain Services, a contractual relationship is created directly between the Client and Pro. The Services Contract created when a Client hires a Pro on the Platform shall be governed by the Quote. The Client and Pro have complete discretion both with regard to whether to enter into a Services Contract with each other.
You acknowledge, agree, and understand that CoinBeast is not a party to any Services Contract, that the formation of a Services Contract between Users will not, under any circumstance, create an employment or other service relationship between CoinBeast and any Pro.
However, if the Client cannot attend the meeting, session, or seminar, Client must notify the Pro 48 hours prior to the meeting, session, or seminar, in which case the Pro shall recommend an alternative time or date.
4.2 Confidential information
Pros are obligated to keep all Client and prospective Client information confidential. The interactions on the Platform between Client’s and Pros are not intended to and will not affect the confidential nature of any communications. CoinBeast is not a party to any Services Contract between the Pro and Client and therefore not privy to direct communication between the Users. The Company has a common interest with the Users of the Platform to protect the confidential status of any information provided over the Platform. The Company may maintain confidential information, directly or indirectly, in a database maintained by the Company or a third-party provider, or the ability of the Company to create Aggregate Information or Composite Information about Users.
Pro agree to abide by all applicable law with respect to the confidentiality of User communications. Pros agree they will treat information received from a prospective User whom they interact with but are ultimately not hired by confidentially. Users acknowledge that Pros will be required to maintain certain communication for periods required by applicable law. If a Pro fails to uphold their obligation with respect to the protection of confidential information, the Company reserves the right to temporarily suspend or permanently delete the Pro’s Account and seem any other remedy which may be available under applicable law.
4.3 Third Party Beneficiaries
It is the intent of the Company and Users who are Party to this Agreement that Users who have entered into Services Contracts and who disclose or receive confidential information to another User are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement with respect to this Section.
For disputes arising between Clients and Pros, Clients agree to abide by the dispute process contained in these Terms, namely in the Arbitration Provision, and to attempt to informally resolve any dispute first. If the dispute process does not resolve your dispute, you may pursue your dispute independently, but you acknowledge and agree that CoinBeast will not and is not obligated to provide any dispute assistance beyond what is provided in these Terms.
If a Pro or Client intends to obtain an order from any arbitrator or any court that might directly involve the legal rights or obligations of the Company or our, that party will (a) give us at least ten business days’ prior notice of the hearing; (b) include in any such order a provision that, as a precondition to obligation affecting the Company, 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.
5. PLATFORM AND SERVICE FEES & PAYMENT TERMS
This Section 5 describes what service and administration fees you agree to pay to the Company in exchange for CoinBeast providing the Platform and Platform Services to you and what taxes we may collect, including your agreement to pay fees to Pros for Services, as detailed below.
CoinBeast may charge fees to Clients ("Client Service Fees") and/or Pros ("Pro Service Fees") (collectively, "Service Fees") in consideration for the use of the CoinBase Platform. More information about when Service Fees apply and how they are calculated are provided below.
5.1 Payment Agreements
CoinBase provides payment services to Users to deliver, hold, and/or receive payment for a Services Contract, and to pay fees to the Company (the “Payment Services”). The Payment Services are intended for business use, and you agree to use the Payment Services for the purposes of obtaining or providing Services over our Platform. CoinBeast will use and release funds for Service Fees only in accordance with this Agreement. Users hereby authorize and instruct CoinBeast to act agent in connection with the payment, processing, and routing of funds for each Job upon completion of the Services Contract. CoinBeast is not a bank or escrow agent. We utilize the Payments Data Controller to process, route and deliver funds under applicable laws and regulations for the purposes of providing Payment Services between Pros and Clients for Services provided on our Platform.
5.2 Service Fees for Pros
Pros pay CoinBeast Service Fees for the use of the Platform. CoinBeast charges Service Fees to Pros in accordance with these terms for using the Platform’s communication, invoicing, reporting, dispute resolution and payment services. The Service Fees (to use the Platform and Platform Services) are paid solely by Pro. Pros shall determine their own Pro Service Fees that they wish to charge on the Platform. When a Client pays a Pro for a Job, we will credit the Pro’s Account for the full amount paid or released or remit to the Pro the amounts, and then subtract and disburse to CoinBeast any Service Fees. The Pro hereby irrevocably authorizes and instructs CoinBeast to deduct the Service Fees for a Job and pay CoinBeast on the Pro’s behalf.
5.3 Payment Processing and Administrative Fees
Pros pay CoinBeast a fee for payment processing, administration related to the processing of Service Fees, and the use of Zoom and Calendly and disbursements attached thereto, paid by Clients through the Platform. These Service Fees are equivalent to 20% of the value of the Services, plus any applicable tax on said amount.
5.4 Disbursement Fees
Pros may pay CoinBeast a disbursement fee for remitting payments to their preferred payment method (a “Disbursement Fee”). The Disbursement Fee is paid to the Company in consideration of costs incurred and administration of disbursements via the disbursement method requested by the Pro and varies by disbursement method. The Disbursement Fee for each disbursement method will be listed under Fees and Schedules on the Platform and revised from time to time. Additional activation, maintenance, and account fees may be charged by the disbursement method requested by Pro.
Pros acknowledge and agree that the Pro is solely responsible (a) for all tax liability associated with payments received from Clients through the CoinBeast Platform, and that CoinBeast will not withhold any taxes from payments to the Pro; (b) to obtain any liability, health, workers’ compensation, disability, unemployment, or other insurance needed, desired, or required by law, and that Pro is not covered by or eligible for any insurance from CoinBeast; (c) for determining whether CoinBeast is required by applicable law to issue any particular invoices for the Service Fees and for issuing any invoices so required; (d) for determining whether Pro is required by applicable law to remit to the appropriate authorities any value added tax or any other taxes or similar charges applicable to the Service Fees and remitting any such taxes or charges to the appropriate authorities, as appropriate; and (e) if for determining if CoinBeast is required by applicable law to withhold any amount of the Service Fees and for notifying CoinBeast of any such requirement and indemnifying the Company for any requirement to pay any withholding amount to the appropriate authorities (including penalties and interest). In the event of an audit of CoinBeast, Pros agree to promptly cooperate with CoinBeast and provide copies of the Pro’s tax returns and other documents as may be reasonably requested for purposes of such audit, including but not limited to records showing Pro is engaging in an independent business as represented to CoinBeast.
5.6 Client Payments and Authorizations
The Client is obligated to immediately make payment for Quotes or Services from the bank account or credit card on file through the Payment Data Controller.
The Client acknowledges and agrees that for Quotes, that failure to decline or dispute an invoice or request for payment is an authorization and instruction to release payment. When Client authorizes the payment of the Service Fees for a Job on the Platform, Client automatically and irrevocably authorizes and instructs CoinBeast to charge the Client’s payment method on account for the Service Fees.
5.7 Payments to Pros
Under this Agreement, CoinBeast disburses funds that are available and payable to a Pro 28 days following when a Client enters into a Services Contract or requests for Services and Client authorization to process payment at the latest. We will automatically disburse available funds to Pros upon processing of payment for the Services in accordance with the policies of our Payments Data Controller.
Notwithstanding any other provision of the Terms of Service, and except as prohibited by applicable law, if we believe, in our sole discretion, that you have violated the conditions and restrictions of the Platform or the Terms of Service, including by committing or attempting to commit fraud or other illicit acts on or through the Platform, we may refuse to process or may hold the disbursement of the Service Fees and take such other actions with respect to your as we deem appropriate in our sole discretion and in accordance with applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Company, in its sole discretion and to the extent permitted by applicable law, may also refuse to process or may hold the disbursement of the Service Fees or any other amounts and offset amounts owed to us if: (a) we require additional information, such as Pro’s tax information, government-issued identification or other proof of identity, address, or date of birth; (b) we have reason to believe the Service Fees may be subject to dispute or chargeback; (c) we suspect fraud; (d) we believe there are reasonable grounds for insecurity with respect to the performance of obligations under this Agreement or other Terms of Service; or (e) we deem it necessary in connection with any investigation or required by applicable law. If, after investigation, we determine that the hold on the disbursement of the Service Fees is no longer necessary, we will release such hold as soon as practicable.
In addition, notwithstanding any other provision of the Terms of Service and to the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you, and you will reimburse us, if we: (i) suspect fraud or criminal activity associated with your payment, withdrawal, or Services Contract; (ii) discover erroneous or duplicate transactions; or (iii) have supplied our services in accordance with this Agreement yet we receive any chargeback from the Payment Method used by you, or used by your Client if you are a Pro, despite our provision of the Platform Services in accordance with this Agreement. You agree that we have the right to obtain such reimbursement by instructing the Company to (and we will have the right to) charge the applicable account you hold with us, offsetting any amounts determined to be owing, deducting amounts from future payments or withdrawals, charging your payment method, or obtaining reimbursement from you by any other lawful means. If we are unable to obtain such reimbursement, we may, in addition to any other remedies available under applicable law, temporarily or permanently revoke your access to the Platform and Platform Services and close your Account.
When applicable, if Client is in “default”, meaning the Client fails to pay the Service Fees or any other amounts when due under the Terms of Service, or a written agreement for payment terms incorporating the Terms of Service (signed by an authorized representative of CoinBeast), we will be entitled to the remedies described in this Section in addition to such other remedies that may be available under applicable law or in such written agreement.
For the avoidance of doubt, when applicable, Client will be deemed to be in default on the earliest occurrence of any of the following: (a) Client fails to pay the Service Fees when due, (b) Client fails to pay a balance that is due or to bring, within a reasonable period of time but no more than 21 days, an account current after a credit or debit card is declined or expires, (c) Client fails to pay an invoice issued to the Client by CoinBeast within the time period agreed or, if none, within 21 days, (d) Client initiates a chargeback with a bank or other financial institution resulting in a charge made by CoinBeast for Service Fees or such other amount due being reversed to the Client, or (e) Client takes other actions or fails to take any action that results in a negative or past-due balance on the Client’s account.
If Client is in default, CoinBeast may, without notice, temporarily or permanently close Client’s Account, if any, and revoke Client’s access to the Platform and Platform Services, including Client’s authority to use the Platform to process any additional payments, enter into Service Contracts, or obtain any additional Services from other Pros through the Website. However, Client will remain responsible for any amounts that accrue on any open Jobs at the time a limitation is put on the Client’s Account as a result of the default and shall undertake to pay any amounts immediately. Without limiting other available remedies, Client must pay CoinBeast upon demand for any amounts owed, plus interest on the outstanding amount at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum interest allowed by applicable law, plus attorneys’ fees and other costs of collection to the extent permitted by applicable law.
CoinBeast, at the Company’s discretion and to the extent permitted by applicable law, may set off amounts due against other amounts received from Client or held by CoinBeast for Client, make appropriate reports to credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities, and cooperate with credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities in any investigation or prosecution.
5.9 No Return of Funds
Client acknowledges and agrees that CoinBeast will charge Client’s designated Payment Method for the Service Fees incurred as described in this Agreement once CoinBeast charges or debits the Client’s designated Payment Method for the Service Fees, the charge or debit is non-refundable, except as otherwise required by applicable law or by these Terms. Client also acknowledges and agrees that the Terms of Service provide a dispute resolution process as a way for Client resolve disputes. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Client therefore agrees not to ask its credit card company, bank, or other Payment Method provider to charge back any Service Fees, Service Fees or other fees charged pursuant to the Terms of Service for any reason. A chargeback in breach of the foregoing obligation is a material breach of the Terms of Service. If Client initiates a chargeback in violation of this Agreement, Client agrees that we may dispute or appeal the chargeback and institute collection action against Client and take such other action we deem appropriate.
Notwithstanding the above, if Pro does not provide Services after entering into a Services Contract, such as the Pro does not show up to a meeting, session, or seminar, Client may request a refund pertaining to that specific Service, meeting, session, or seminar.
5.10 Payment Methods
By providing Payment Method information through the Website and authorizing payments with the Payment Method, Client represents, warrants, and covenants that: (a) Client is legally authorized to provide such information; (b) Client is legally authorized to make payments using the Payment Method(s); (c) if Client is an employee or agent of an Organization or person that owns the Payment Method, that Client is authorized by the Organization or person to use the Payment Method to make payments on the CoinBeast Platform; and (d) such actions do not violate the terms and conditions applicable to Client’s use of such Payment Method(s) or applicable law. When Client authorizes a payment using a Payment Method via the Platform, Client represents and warrants that there are sufficient funds or credit available to complete the payment using the designated Payment Method. To the extent that any amounts owed under this Agreement or the other Terms of Service cannot be collected from Client’s Payment Method(s), Client is solely responsible for paying such amounts by other means.
Because the use of any Payment Method may be limited by applicable law or by written agreement with your financial institution, CoinBeast is not liable to any User if we do not complete a transaction as a result of any such limit, or if a financial institution fails to honor any credit or debit to or from an account associated with such Payment Method. CoinBeast will make commercially reasonable efforts to work with any such affected Users to resolve such transactions in a manner consistent with this Agreement.
6. RECORDS OF COMPLIANCE
Users will each (a) create and maintain records to document satisfaction of their respective obligations under this Agreement, including, without limitation, their respective payment obligations and compliance with tax and employment laws, and (b) provide copies of such records to the Company upon request. Nothing in this subsection requires or will be construed as requiring CoinBeast to supervise or monitor a User’s compliance with this Agreement, the other Terms of Service, or a Service Contract. You are solely responsible for creation, storage, and backup of your business records.
CoinBeast agrees that it will either (i) store, backup, retain, or grant access to any information or data for each Client job or matter for the period request by a Pro to maintain that record under applicable legislation or (ii) provide a Pro with a complete record of its job with the Client following completion of that job as indicated by the Pro.

11. RIGHT TO REFUSE
You acknowledge that CoinBeast reserves the right to refuse service to anyone and to cancel User access at any time, subject to any restrictions under applicable law.
This Section 12 discusses your agreement to make and receive payments only through CoinBeast for two years from the date you first meet your Client or Pro on the Website, unless you pay a Disintermediation Fee, as detailed below.
12.1 Payments Through the Platform
You acknowledge and agree that (a) CoinBeast used a substantial amount of labour and effort to develop our Platform to enable Clients to conveniently and transparently hire Pros online and (b) a substantial portion of the compensation CoinBeast receives for making the Platform available to Users is collected through the Service Fees described in these Terms.
We only receive a Service Fee when a Client and a Pro pay and receive payment through the Platform. Therefore, for the later of (i) 24 months from the time you identify or are identified by any party through the Platform or (ii) the duration of the Services Contract or Job created through introduction or discovery on the Platform (the “Non-Circumvention Period”), you agree to use the Platform as your exclusive method to request, make, and receive all payments for Services directly or indirectly with that Pro or Client or arising out of your relationship with that party facilitated by CoinBeast (the “CoinBeast Relationship”).
For the avoidance of doubt, if you, or the Organization you represent, did not identify and were not identified by another party through the Platform, such as if you and another User worked together before meeting on the Platform, then the Non-Circumvention Period does not apply. If you use the Platform as an employee, agent, or representative of another business, then the Non-Circumvention Period applies to you and other employees, agents, or representatives of the business when acting in that capacity with respect to the other User.
You agree not to circumvent the Payment Methods offered by the Platform. By way of illustration and not in limitation of the foregoing, you agree not to:
You agree to notify CoinBeast immediately if a person suggests to you making or receiving payments outside of the Platform in violation of this Section. If you are aware of a breach or potential breach of this non-circumvention agreement, please submit a confidential report to CoinBeast by sending an email message to: email@example.com.
12.2 Circumvention Policy and Fees
Except as provided for in Section 12.3 below, Users represent and warrant, and acknowledge that the Company is relying upon this representation and warranty, they will not circumvent or attempt to circumvent these Terms to in any way attempt to procure or provide Services off of the CoinBeast Platform except as provided by these Terms.
If a Client solicits a Pro to take the CoinBeast Relationship off of the Platform and make payment for Services other than in accordance with Section 12.1, then the Client agrees to pay a one-time fee (the “Disintermediation Fee”) equal to the greater of: (i) $2,500, or (ii) 50% the amount actually paid by the Client to the Pro for Services for which payment was processed other than through the Platform and (iii) 50% of the amount of a Quote provided by a Pro to the Client on the Platform.
If a Pro obtains a request for a Job or is otherwise identified by a Client through the Platform, and the Pro solicits the Client to make payment other than in accordance with Section 12.1, to make payment for Services originated through a CoinBeast Relationship, then the Pro agrees to pay a Disintermediation Fee to the Company of $5,000.
12.3 Recruiting from Platform
If any Client agrees to hire a Pro as a full-time employee following their introduction to that Pro through the CoinBeast Platform, the Client agrees it will pay the Company a recruitment fee equal to the greater of: (i) $5,000 or (ii) 15% of the Pro’s first-year employment salary.
13. REVIEWS, RATINGS, COMMENTS AND OTHER CONTENT
Within a certain timeframe after obtaining Services, Clients can leave a public review (a “Review”) and submit a star rating (a “Rating”) about the Pro that they worked with. Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinions and experiences of individual Clients and do not reflect the opinion of CoinBeast about any Pro.
Ratings and Reviews by Clients of Pros must be truthful, accurate and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and Reviews are subject to Section 9 (User-Generated Content) and must comply with our policies. As legal matters are sensitive, any Review and Rating should be solely based on the Client’s experience with the Pro and the session, meeting, or seminar and not based on the particular outcome of a given situation.
Users are prohibited from manipulating the Ratings and Reviews system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to write a positive or negative Review about another Pro. Ratings and Reviews are part of a Pro’s public profile and may also be surfaced elsewhere on the CoinBeast Platform together with other relevant information such as number of sessions, meetings, or seminars, number of cancellations, average response time and other information.

17. TERM AND TERMINATION

Unless both you and CoinBeast 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.

Without limiting our other rights or remedies, we may, but are not obligated to, temporarily or indefinitely revoke access to the Platform or Platform Services, deny your registration, or permanently revoke your access to the Platform and refuse to provide any or all Platform Services to you if: (i) you breach the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement or any other provisions of the Terms of Service; (ii) we suspect or become aware that you have provided false or misleading information to us; or (iii) we believe, in our sole discretion, that your actions may cause legal liability for you, our Users, or CoinBeast or our affiliates; may be contrary to the interests of the Platform or the User community; or may involve illicit or illegal activity. If your Account is temporarily or permanently closed, you may not use the Platform under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without CoinBeast’s prior written consent. If you attempt to use the Platform under a different Account, we reserve the right to reclaim available funds in that Account and/or use an available payment method 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 Platform 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. You therefore agree as follows:
IF COINBEAST DECIDES TO TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY CLOSE YOUR ACCOUNT, THE COMPANY HAS THE RIGHT WHERE ALLOWED BY LAW BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION TO: (A) NOTIFY OTHER USERS THAT HAVE ENTERED INTO SERVICE CONTRACTS WITH YOU TO INFORM THEM OF YOUR CLOSED ACCOUNT STATUS, (B) PROVIDE THOSE USERS WITH A SUMMARY OF THE REASONS FOR YOUR ACCOUNT CLOSURE. YOU AGREE THAT COINBEAST WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO ANY NOTICE THAT IT MAY PROVIDE TO ANY USER REGARDING CLOSED ACCOUNT STATUS OR THE REASON(S) FOR THE CLOSURE.
17.2 Account Data
Except as otherwise required by law, if your Account is closed for any reason, you will no longer have access to data, messages, files, or other material you keep on the Platform and that that any closure of your Account may involve deletion of any content stored in your Account for which CoinBeast will have no liability whatsoever. The Company, in its sole discretion and as permitted or required by law, may retain some or all of your Account information.
After this Agreement terminates, the terms of this Agreement and the other Terms of Service that expressly or by their nature contemplate performance after this Agreement terminates or expires will survive and continue in full force and effect. 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 CoinBeast 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.
18. DISPUTES AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Section 18 discusses your agreement with CoinBeast and our agreement with you about how we will resolve any disputes, including that we will both first try to resolve any dispute informally and that we both agree to use arbitration instead of going to court if we can’t resolve the dispute informally, as detailed below.
18.1 Disputes between CoinBeast and Platform Users
If a dispute arises between you and CoinBeast or our affiliates, our goal is to resolve the dispute quickly, cost-effectively, and in a friendly manner. Accordingly, you, CoinBeast, and our affiliates agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy that arises out of or relates to this Agreement, the other Terms of Service, your relationship with CoinBeast (including without limitation any claimed employment with CoinBeast or one of our affiliates or successors), the termination of your relationship with CoinBeast, or the Platform Services (in this Section 18 each, a “Claim”) in accordance with this Section 18 (sometimes referred to as the “Arbitration Provision”).
18.2 Scope of Claims
Claims covered by this Arbitration Provision include, but are not limited to, all claims, disputes, or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Terms of Service, any Services Contract, payments or agreements, any payments or monies you claim are due to you from the Company or our affiliates or successors, trade secrets, unfair competition, false advertising, consumer protection, privacy, compensation, classification, minimum wage, seating, expense reimbursement, overtime, breaks and rest periods, termination, discrimination, retaliation or harassment and claims arising under and all legislated provincial, state or federal claims arising out of or relating to your relationship with CoinBeast or the termination of that relationship.
18.3 Choice of Law
18.4 Informal Dispute Resolution
Before serving a demand for arbitration of a Claim, you agree with the Company to first notify each other of the Claim or potential Claim. You agree to notify CoinBeast of the Claim at by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and the Company agrees to provide to you a notice at your email address on file (in each case, a “Notice”). You and the Company then will seek informal voluntary resolution of the Claim. Any Notice must include pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and contact information, so that you or CoinBeast, as applicable, may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim. Both you and the Company will have 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the other party’s Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.
18.5 Binding Arbitration and Waiver
This Arbitration Provision applies to all Users. In the unlikely event the parties are unable to resolve a Claim within 60 days of the receipt of the applicable Notice, you, the Company, and our affiliates (if applicable) agree to resolve the Claim by final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator selected by the Company instead of a court.
18.6 Scope, Place and Rules of Arbitration Agreement
This Arbitration Provision applies to any Claim (defined above) the parties may have and survives after your relationship with CoinBeast ends. Claims covered by this Arbitration Provision include, but are not limited to, all claims, disputes or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Terms of Service. This Arbitration Provision is intended to apply to the resolution of any disputes arising out of or in connection with the Terms of Service that otherwise would be resolved in a provincial or federal court of law or before a forum other than arbitration.
Except as otherwise provided herein, arbitration will be conducted in Montreal, Quebec. Arbitration of disputes brought by a User that allege a violation of a consumer protection statute also will be subject to this Arbitration Provision, and such arbitrations will be conducted in accordance with this Agreement. The applicable. Any dispute regarding the applicability of a particular set of rules shall be resolved exclusively by the arbitrator. Any party will have the right to appear at the arbitration by telephone and/or video rather than in person.
You and the Company will follow the applicable arbitration rules with respect to arbitration fees. In any arbitration with a Pro, the Pro will pay arbitration fees only to the extent those fees are no greater than the filing or initial appearance fees applicable to court actions in the jurisdiction where the arbitration will be conducted, with CoinBeast to make up the difference, if any. In any arbitration in which a User makes a claim under a consumer protection statute, the User will pay arbitration fees only to the extent those fees are no greater than the filing or initial appearance fees applicable to court actions in the jurisdiction where the arbitration will be conducted, or $250.00, whichever is less, with CoinBeast to make up the difference, if any. The arbitrator must follow applicable law and may award only those remedies that would have applied had the matter been heard in court. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s decision in any court having jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no amendment to this Arbitration Provision will apply to any matter pending in an arbitration proceeding brought under this Section 18 unless all parties to that arbitration consent in writing to that amendment.
18.7 Enforcement and Interpretation
This Arbitration Provision is the full and complete agreement relating to the formal resolution of Claims. Except as otherwise provided in this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision covers, and the arbitrator shall have exclusive jurisdiction to decide, all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, enforcement, or application of this Arbitration Provision, including the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity of the Arbitration Provision or any portion of the Arbitration Provision. All such matters shall be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court. The parties expressly agree that the arbitrator and not a court will decide any question of whether the parties agreed to arbitrate, including but not limited to any claim that all or part of this Arbitration Provision, this Agreement, or any other part of the Terms of Service is void or voidable.
In the event any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed unenforceable, the remainder of this Arbitration Provision will be enforceable. If any portion of the Class Action Waiver below of this Arbitration Provision is deemed to be unenforceable, you and CoinBeast agree that this Arbitration Provision will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
18.8 Class Action Waiver
Where applicable, both you and the Company agree to bring any dispute in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not on a class or collective basis on behalf of others. Where applicable, there will be no right or authority for any dispute to be brought, heard or arbitrated as a class or collective action, or as a member in any such class or collective proceeding (the “Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or the applicable arbitration rules, where applicable, disputes regarding the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity or breach of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (1) the dispute is filed as a class or collective action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the class or collective action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration. You and CoinBeast agree that you will not be retaliated against, disciplined or threatened with discipline as a result of your filing or participating in a class or collective action in any forum. However, we may lawfully seek enforcement of this Arbitration Provision and the Class Action Waiver under the applicable law and seek dismissal of such class or collective actions or claims.
19.1 Governing Law
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of Quebec and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Any legal proceedings that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement in Section 18 must be brought in the District of Montreal, Quebec unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Montreal, Quebec.
If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
You may not assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and your rights and obligations hereunder without our prior written consent. CoinBeast may without restriction assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and any rights and obligations hereunder, at its sole discretion, with 30 days prior notice. Your right to terminate this Agreement at any time remains unaffected.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
19.5 No Economic Relationship
No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and CoinBeast as a result of this Agreement or your use of the CoinBeast Platform.
19.6 Entire Agreement
Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions, policies, guidelines or standards, the Terms of Service constitute the entire Agreement between CoinBeast and the User pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between CoinBeast and you in relation to the access to and use of the CoinBeast Platform.
19.7 Modification and Waiver
CoinBeast reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to these Terms, we will post the revised Terms on the CoinBeast Platform and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms. We will also provide you with notice of the modifications by email at least thirty (30) days before the date they become effective. If you disagree with the revised Terms, you may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect. We will inform you about your right to terminate the Agreement in the notification email. If you do not terminate your Agreement before the date the revised Terms become effective, your continued access to or use of the Platform will be deemed to constitute acceptance of such revised Terms.
