This Agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions of your use of the binamite.com website and any of its products or services (collectively, "Website" or "Services").

Binamite enables businesses to seamlessly manage payments and relationships with both international and local independent contractors. Users can register to the Platform as either a “Contractor” or “Client”, and depending on the designation of the account, different Services may be available. Certain Services may also only be available subject to the payment of such fees detailed on the Platform.

Accounts and Membership

You must be at least 18 years of age to use this Website. By using this Website and by agreeing to this Agreement you warrant and represent that you are at least 18 years of age. If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with it.

We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. We may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) if we determine that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage our reputation and goodwill. If we delete your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register for our Services. We may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.

Payments

If you are a Client, certain Services are subject to the payment of the fees to Binamite detailed on the Binamite Platform. You may access and use such Services by selecting from one of our payment plans ("Payment Plan(s)"). Payment Plan details are set forth on our Pricing Page. You hereby agree to make payment to Binamite of such fees detailed on the Platform in accordance with your applicable Payment Plan. If you are using our Platform in connection with Consultant Services provided by Binamite Partners, your use of the Platform is not subject to the payment of any fees to Binamite. Please note additional fees may apply pursuant to the applicable.

The payment plan will be charged at the moment you issue a payment to a Contractor or an employer or record on the platform as an additional amount. A separate invoice will be generated and will be located in the billing section. If you pay for your Payment Plan using a debit method, wire transfer or credit card (“Card”), the following terms apply:

Foreign Transaction Fees
You acknowledge that for certain transactions, your Card’s issuing bank may charge a foreign transaction fee or other charges.

Declined Payments
If payment is declined due to expiration of the Card, insufficient funds, or otherwise, Client remains responsible for any amounts not remitted to Binamite and Binamite may, in its sole discretion: (i) continue presenting the Card once it has been updated by Client (if applicable) or (ii) terminate this Agreement.

In the case where you have auto payments activated on Binamite, we will automatically charge you your payment plan on top of the payments Client will be issuing.

Binamite may modify your Payment Plan fees at any time and in its sole discretion upon at least 30 days advance notice to you before the end date of your next billing cycle. Changes to Payment Plans will become effective at the end of the next billing cycle following your receipt of notice of the change. If you do not agree to the fee change, you must terminate your Payment Plan at least 5 days prior to the end of your next billing cycle by sending Binamite notice of termination to support@binamite.com. Your continued use of the Services after the Payment Plan change becomes effective constitutes your consent to the new Payment Plan terms.

Payment Plan fees are stated exclusive of any sales tax, value-added taxes, use or withholding tax or other governmental assessments of any nature in your jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your Payment Plan, except for those taxes based on our net income. Should any payment for the Services be subject to withholding tax by any government, you will reimburse us for such withholding tax.

Binamite may, at its sole discretion, offer a Payment Plan with a free trial for a limited period of time ("Free Trial").To participate in a Free Trial, you must select a Payment Plan and provide a valid payment method, however, we will not charge your payment method unless you continue using the Services after the Free Trial is over. If you or Binamite cancel your Free Trial, you acknowledge and agree that we may delete all Contracts, Forms, Content, and all other data associated with your Account during your Free Trial. To cancel your Payment Plan after your Free Trial has ended and your Payment Plan has begun, you must notify us by sending Binamite notice of termination at least 5 days prior to the end of your next billing cycle. At any time and without notice, Binamite reserves the right to (a) modify the terms of any Free Trial offer, (b) withdraw any Free Trial offer, or (c) cancel any Free Trial Payment Plan at any time.

Your payment obligations under your Payment Plan for each billing cycle may not be canceled after a billing cycle has commenced, and you will not receive a partial refund if you stop using the Services and terminate your Payment Plan before the end of a billing cycle. All fees paid by you to Binamite are non-refundable and there are no credits for partially used Payment Plan periods. We may consider certain refund requests on a case-by-case basis in our sole discretion.
