Freelancer Membership Agreement
Effective Date: July 29, 2016
This Freelancer Membership Agreement (“Agreement”) is part of and incorporates by reference User Agreement and other Terms of Service. Your continued use of the Site after the last modified date will signify your acceptance of this Agreement. We may modify the provisions in this Agreement without notifying you, so please check back often for updates. Capitalized terms not defined in this Agreement are defined in the User Agreement, elsewhere in the Terms of Service, or have the meanings given such terms on the Site.
Freelancer Membership Programs
Designity offers several membership programs for Freelancers and Agencies. For purposes of this Agreement, “Member” or “you” means a Freelancer or Agency participating in a membership program.
Each membership program includes a certain number of “Connects,” which reserve monthly capacity for you to submit proposals for Engagements as described on the Site. If you are a paying Member, you have the right to purchase additional Connects at any time, subject to a cap determined by your membership program and other criteria. Connects you do not use by the end of the month do not carry over into the next month, with the exception of paid memberships, which allow you to rollover up to two times the monthly allotment of Connects. The conditions under which unused Connects will rollover into the next month may vary from time to time and will depend on your membership program.
Designity reserves the right to change membership fees, change the monthly number of Connects included in the membership programs, change the price for additional Connects or institute new fees at any time, upon reasonable notice posted in advance on this Site. No refunds of fees already paid will be given. If Designity exercises its right to cancel a membership, Designity will not refund the membership fee already
Where applicable, Designity may also collect taxes (such as value added tax (VAT) in Europe) on membership fees and the cost for Connects.
Automatic Membership Renewal
You must pay your Designity membership fees through your Designity Escrow Account. The membership billing period begins on the date that Designity receives payment. Designity membership fees are calculated from the beginning of that billing period. Designity automatically renews your Designity monthly membership, and you irrevocably authorize and instruct Designity Escrow Corporation to make the required monthly payments to Designity on your behalf as described in the User Agreement. Automatic renewal occurs on the first day after the expiration date.
Changes to Membership Program
If you change your membership program, the new program and, new billing period will then be based upon the date Designity receives payment of the new membership fee. If you upgrade a membership, it will result in a new billing date effective upon the date of payment of the additional fees and, if applicable, will result in a credit of the unused portion of the existing category membership fees. If you downgrade a membership, you will not receive a refund or credit for the fees already paid. The downgrade will go into effect at the beginning of the next billing period. Designity reserves the right to modify its membership programs at any time, upon a reasonable notice posted in advance on this Site.
