Crowdfavors is an Internet-based service providing secure transaction management between Askers and Doers for service engagements. The Service includes assisting Doers and Askers in creating, negotiating, and managing their transactions as well as dispute resolution. The Service intends to relieve the Asker of the risk of paying for a service that the Asker does not receive and relieve the Doer of the risk of providing a service and not receiving valid payment for it. Crowdfavors provides a platform for the negotiation of service engagements between Users, including description of the transaction, terms, price, and performance deadlines. The Service also allows both Users to monitor each step of the transaction and will notify the Users when further action is required.
When both Users (Asker and Doer) agree to the terms of the Service Engagement, the Asker will pay Crowdfavors the amount of Engagement price, which will be credited to the Asker's account at Crowdfavors (the "Crowdfavors Escrow Account"). Crowdfavors will then instruct the Doer to provide the services in accordance with the Service Engagement. When the Asker certifies that it is satisfied with the services received in accordance to the terms of the Service Engagement, the Site debits the Crowdfavors Escrow Account of the Asker and credits the Crowdfavors Escrow Account of the Doer with the amount of Engagement price net of Crowdfavors' service fee. At the User's request, the Site will transfer the amount from Crowdfavors Escrow Account to the User via PayPal, wire transfer, Automatic Clearing House ("ACH") credit, or e-check. Crowdfavors will transfer funds only to accounts maintained in the name of the User, or make checks only to the name of the User. Crowdfavors will not pay third parties, nor handle any payments not related to a transaction registered at Crowdfavors in accordance with the Service Engagement.
After completing Provider Service as a Doer and receiving your first funds, or paying Engagement price to Crowdfavors as an Asker, the Site will automatically deploy and maintain your Crowdfavors Escrow Account to receive and withdraw payments and to make payments to the Site for payment processing and other fees.
Payment processing fees may be withheld from User's Crowdfavors Escrow Account in accordance with the Service Fees & Rewards page.
Crowdfavors Escrow Account will also be used for your receiving of Referral Rewards from the Site.
Disputes between Users arising out of Service Engagements will be resolved in accordance with the dispute resolution provisions provided by the Site.
The Service provides a platform which enables Users to create Listings for Provider Services and Providers to browse those Listings and provide Provider Services directly to the Users. Users acknowledge and agree that Crowdfavors is not a party to any communications, interactions, or agreements between its Users. Crowdfavors does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control Providers or their work. Crowdfavors does not set Providers' hours, schedules, prices, or any component of various Provider Services. Crowffavors has no control over the conduct of Users of the Service, or any Provider Services, or third parties related to any Users or Provider Services. Crowdfavors disclaims all liability in this regard to the maximum extent permitted by law. Service Engagements between Users will not, under any circumstance, create an employment or other service relationship between Crowdfavors and any User.

We are not responsible for the content of Third-Party Services, nor do we make any warranties or representations with regard to the content, accuracy, opinions, warranties, products or services, privacy or security, intellectual property compliance, or links of such Third-Party Services.

You agree that if we so request, you must take immediate action to remove any usage of our intellectual property that you may have engaged in, even if it would cause a loss to you.

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in the State of New York. The offer and acceptance of this contract are deemed to have occurred in the State of New York.
Except as specifically stated herein, all other Disputes not eligible for resolution in Small Claims Court shall be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration. You hereby waive your right to have any future Dispute heard by a judge or jury (except as otherwise set forth in this Section 26). The provisions of this Section 26 shall constitute your and Crowdfavors's written agreement to arbitrate Disputes under the Federal Arbitration Act. Any modification to this Agreement shall be in writing and signed by you and Crowdfavors. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to its rules.
You agree that you may bring claims against us only in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. In addition, you agree that disputes shall be arbitrated only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these provisions.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, either party may bring suit in court of competent jurisdiction in the State of New York, seeking an injunction or other equitable relief arising out of or relating to the infringement of a party's or a third party's intellectual property rights.
You agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action shall be permanently barred.

In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.
If two or more provisions of this Agreement are deemed to conflict with each other's operation, we shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
We reserve all rights afforded to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.
We may terminate your access to our Service at our discretion without explanation, though we will strive to provide a timely explanation in most cases. Under no circumstances, including termination or cancellation of our Service to you, will we be liable for any losses related to actions of other Users.
