This section discusses what Mangtas does and does not do when providing the Site and Site Services and some of your responsibilities when using the Site to find or enter into a Service Contract with a Vendor, Talent or Client, as detailed below.
The Site is a marketplace where Clients, Vendors and Talents can identify each other and advertise, buy, and sell Services online. Subject to the Terms of Service, Mangtas provides the Site Services to Users, including hosting and maintaining the Site, facilitating the formation of Service Contracts, and assisting Users in resolving disputes which may arise in connection with those Service Contracts. When a User enters a Service Contract, the User uses the Site to invoice and pay any amounts owed under the Service Contract.
Mangtas merely makes the Site and Site Services available to enable Vendors, Talents and Clients to find and transact directly with each other. Through the Site and Site Services, Vendors and Talents may be notified of Clients that may be seeking the services they offer, and Clients may be notified of Vendors and Talents that may offer the services they seek; at all times, however, Users are responsible for evaluating and determining the suitability of any Service Contract, Client, Vendor or Talent on their own.
All activities prior to a Service Contract are to be performed wholly using the World Wide Web through the Internet; all activities and interaction between Mangtas and the Clients, Vendors and Talents will strictly only occur through mangtas.com.
Users enter into a Service Contract in a self-serviced manner, where the Service Contract is directly between the Users, and Mangtas is not a party to that Service Contract.
You acknowledge, agree, and understand that Mangtas is not a party to the relationship or any dealings between Client, Vendors and Talents. 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 Service Contract (such as any interviews, vetting, background checks, or similar actions); (c) negotiating, agreeing to, and executing any terms or conditions of Service Contracts; (d) performing Services; and/or (e) paying for Services. You further acknowledge, agree, and understand that you are solely responsible for assessing whether to enter into a Service Contract with another User and for verifying any information about another User, including Composite Information (defined below). Mangtas does not make any representations about or guarantee the truth or accuracy of any Vendor’s, Client’s or Talent’s listings or other User Content on the Site; does not verify any feedback or information provided by Users about Vendors, Talents or Clients; and does not guarantee the work of Vendors or Clients. You acknowledge, agree, and understand that Mangtas does not, in any way, supervise, direct, control, or evaluate Vendors, Talents or their work and is not responsible for any Service Contracts, contract terms or Work Product. Mangtas makes no representations about and does not guarantee, and you agree not to hold Mangtas responsible for, the quality, safety, or legality of Services; the qualifications, background, or identities of Users; the ability of Vendors and Talents to deliver Services; the ability of Clients to pay for Services; User Content and statements or posts made by Users; or the ability or willingness of a Client, Vendors or Talents to actually complete a transaction. While Mangtas may provide certain badges on Vendors, Talents or Client profiles, such badges are not a guarantee or warranty of quality or ability or willingness of the badged Vendor, Talent or Client to complete a Service Contract and is not a guarantee of any kind, including, the quality of Vendor or Talent Services or Client Service Contract.
You also acknowledge, agree, and understand that Vendors and Talents are solely responsible for determining, and have the sole right to determine, which Service Contracts to accept; the time, place, manner, and means of providing any Services; the type of services they provide; and the price they charge for their services or how that pricing is determined or set. You further acknowledge, agree, and understand that: (i) you are not an employee of Mangtas, and you are not eligible for any of the rights or benefits of employment (including unemployment and/or workers compensation insurance); (ii) Mangtas will not have any liability or obligations, including under or related to Service Contracts and/or Services for any acts or omissions by you or other Users; (iii) Mangtas does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control any Vendor, Talents or Vendor Services or Talent Service; does not impose quality standards or a deadline for completion of any Vendor Services or Talent Services; and does not dictate the performance, methods or process Vendor or Talent uses to perform services; (iv) Vendor/Talent is free to determine when and if to perform Vendor/Talent Services, including the days worked and time periods of work, and Mangtas does not set or have any control over Vendor’s and Talent’s pricing, work hours, work schedules, or work location, nor is Mangtas involved in any other way in determining the nature and amount of any compensation that may be charged by or paid to Vendors and Talents for a Service Contract; (v) Vendors and Talents will be paid at such times and amounts as agreed with a Client in a given Service Contract, and Mangtas does not, in any way, provide or guarantee Vendors and Talents a regular salary or any minimum, regular payment; (vi) Mangtas does not provide Vendors and Talents with training or any equipment, labor, tools, or materials related to any Service Contract; (vii) Mangtas does not provide the premises at which Vendors and Talents will perform the work; (viii) unless otherwise agreed with their Client, Vendors and Talents may use subcontractors or employees to perform Services by delegating work on fixed-price contracts or by agreeing with their Clients to have hourly contracts for Vendor’s/Talent’s subcontractor(s) or employee(s); and (ix) Mangtas does not provide shipping services for any physical Work Product. If a Vendor/Talent uses subcontractors or employees, Vendor/Talent further agrees and acknowledges that this Section applies to Mangtas’ relationship, if any, with Vendor’s/Talent’s subcontractors and employees as well and Vendor/Talent is solely responsible for Vendor’s/Talent’s subcontractors and employees.
Without limiting the foregoing paragraph, if you are a Vendor or Talent, you expressly acknowledge, agree, and understand that: (1) the Vendor is solely responsible for paying its Talents for work performed on behalf of the Vendor and that such payments will not be made through the Site; (2) Mangtas is not a party to any agreement between the Vendor and its Talents and does not have anyliability or obligations under or related to any such agreement, even if the Vendor or Talents defaults; (3) neither Vendor nor Talents are employees or agents of Mangtas; (4) Mangtas does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control the Vendor or Talents; (5) Mangtas does not set Vendors’ or Talents’ contract terms amongst themselves or with Clients (including determining whether the contract will be hourly or fixed price), fees, pricing, work hours, work schedules, or location of work; (6) Mangtas does not provide Vendors or Talents with training or any equipment, labor, tools, or materials needed for any Service Contract; (7) Mangtas does not provide the premises at which the Vendor or Talents will perform the work; and (8) Mangtas makes no representations as to the reliability, capability, or qualifications of any Vendor or Talents or the ability or willingness of any Vendor to make payments to or fulfill any other obligations to Talents, and Mangtas disclaims any and all liability relating thereto.
Clients may not offer direct payments to Vendors and Talents using payment systems outside of the Mangtas platform.
Mangtas retains the right to use all publicly published delivered works for Mangtas marketing and promotional purposes.
Vendors and Talents may not offer Clients to pay or make payment using any method other than through the Mangtas.com site. In case you have been asked to use an alternative payment method, please report it immediately to Mangtas.com
Once payment is confirmed, your Work Order will be created and given a unique Mangtas identifier. Vendors and Talents will only start work when there is a confirmed Work Order in the Mangtas site.
Vendors and Talents must deliver completed files and/or proof of work using the “Submit” button according to the scope that was agreed and indicated in the Work Order.
The “Submit” button may not be abused by Vendors and Talents to circumvent Order guidelines described in these Terms of Service. Using the “Submit” button when an Order was not fulfilled may result in a cancellation of that Order after review, affect the Vendor’s/Talent’s rating and result in a warning to Vendors/Talents.
An Order is marked as “Accepted” after it is marked as “Delivered” and then accepted by the Clients. An Order will be automatically marked as Complete if not accepted and no request for modification was submitted within 3 days after the Order was marked as Delivered.
Disputes and Cancellations
We encourage our Clients, Vendors and Talents to try and settle conflicts amongst themselves. If for any reason this fails or if you encounter non-permitted usage on the Site, users can contact Mangtas for assistance.
Vendors and Talents should recognize that there might be a need for Clients to disclose certain confidential information to be used by Vendors and Talents for the purpose of delivering the ordered work, and to protect such confidential information from unauthorized use and disclosure. Therefore, Vendors and Talents agree to treat any information received from Clients as highly sensitive, top secret and classified material. Without derogating from the generality of the above, Vendors and Talents specifically agree to (i) maintain all such information in strict confidence; (ii) not disclose the information to any third parties; (iii) not use the information for any purpose except for delivering the ordered work; and (vi) not to copy or reproduce any of the information without the Client’s permission. Vendors and Talents also agree to the NDA section below.
Payment Terms & Conditions
There will be no fees applied to Vendors and Talents except for transfer bank charges, credit card, forex or applicable taxes if there are any. Mangtas will charge a platform fee on top of the total Work Order cost to the Client. This fee is for the use of the Site Services, including, but not limited to, the Work Orders, communication, invoicing, reporting, dispute resolution and payment services.
Clients are required to pay a Deposit of the total Work Order value plus the platform fee before the Vendors/Talents can start working on the Work Order. The total Work Order value will be paid-out to the Vendors once the Work Order is “Accepted” by the Client. Any payout made to the Vendors/Talents will no longer be refunded to the Client.
Mangtas may be required by applicable laws to charge users with indirect taxes (e.g. Sales Tax, VAT, GST) or to withhold taxes. In such instances, any amounts Mangtas is required to collect or withhold for the payment of any such Taxes shall be collected in addition to the fees owed to Mangtas under the Terms of Service. Users are responsible for paying any direct or indirect taxes, including any GST, VAT, or income tax, which may apply to them depending on residency, location or otherwise, under provisions of their jurisdiction.
Bank Fees, Credit Card Fees, Finance Charges and Forex
Bank fees, credit card fees, finance charges and Forex conversion charges will be borne by the Users. These charges are in addition to the Work Order price, and in any event, any such charges will always be displayed to the Client before payment and Vendors and Talents before payout.
The Client agrees that the client will not receive interest or other earnings on the Deposit held in Mangtas’ bank account. Mangtas may charge or deduct fees, may receive a deduction in fees or expenses charged, and may receive other compensation in connection with the services provided.
