Freelancer Hire Me Program Terms & Conditions
The Hire Me program entitles you to have Project fees waived on projects between you and any new user that you refer to Freelancer.com ("Referred User"). In order to be eligible to participate in the Program you must comply with all requirements, and have an Account that is in good standing.
These Terms & Conditions are to be read in conjunction with the Freelancer.com User Agreement (as amended from time to time). To the extent that there is any inconsistency between these Terms & Conditions and the User Agreement, then the User Agreement will prevail.
See User Agreement for more information.
2. Fees Waived
Fees will be waived on all projects where you and the Referred User are the Employer and Awarded Freelancer for the project. The project fees between you and the Referred User will be waived on any such projects for the lifetime of this Program.
For the avoidance of doubt, only Project fees levied on the project will be waived. For any other activity that either you or the Referred User conducts on Freelancer.com ("The Site"), standard fees will apply.
See Fees & Charges for more information.
3. Requirements for Referred Users
The Referred User must be an individual or business with whom you have a pre-existing relationship. You may not obtain names for referrals from group email addresses, third party bulk mailing lists, customer lists, or other similar sources. You may not send unsolicited e-mails to recruit Referred Users ("Spam"), and if you send Spam in order to recruit Referred Users, Freelancer may immediately and permanently close your Account.
For a user to be considered a Referred User they must: (1) sign-up for an Account through the supplied Program links within 120 days; (2) be a new user that has never visited the Freelancer.com platform before; (3) be positively identified by The Site as being referred by your account. For Freelancer.com to be able to positively identify the Referred User, all banners and badges must be installed as is and without any modifications. Failing to do so might revoke your entitlement to waived fees.
Because of the nature of the program, certain personal details about your account which include but are not limited to your name, email, reputation on The Site and statistics about past performance, might be displayed on the widgets. A preview of the information you will share is shown to you when you are configuring your widget. By installing and using a widget, you agree to share such details.
Furthermore, The Site must track participating users to be able to positively identify the Referred Users as valid referrals. We also collect usage information about the badges, buttons and email signatures to improve the design and functionality.
6. Discontinuance or modification of the Program
Changes to the design of the widgets may occur periodically as a way to improve both design and browser compatibility. Furthermore, Freelancer.com alse reserves the right to discontinue or modify the Program at any time without notifying participating users. It is your responsibility to refer back to this page regularly to ensure you are in compliance with these Terms & Conditions.
Failure to comply with these terms may result in your Account and participation in the Program being terminated. Freelancer.com will take the necessary steps to recover damages resulting from non-compliance if such cases occur.
