Your Virect.com Account
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and listing. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the information you provide. You shall keep your account information secure, and you shall not collect or harvest any personal data of any other user of Virect. Virect reserves the right to disable any user account issued to you at any time in Virect’s sole discretion. You must not describe or assign keywords to your posts/activities in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others. Virect may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause Virect liability.
You must immediately notify Virect of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. Virect is not liable for your acts or omissions, including damages incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Virect retains the right, at its sole discretion, to deny access to anyone, at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, for violation of these terms. You shall cease and desist from any such access or use immediately upon request by Virect.
Job Agreements with Job Initiators
Virect permits Content Producers to view the profiles of Job Initiators who have registered with Virect. If a Job Initiator selects a Content Producer for a particular Job through Virect, the two parties may separately enter into an agreement on such terms and conditions as may be agreed upon.
For example, the Job Agreement may contain (a) a description of the services the Content Producer will provide to the Job Initiator, (b) payment terms, and (c) any other terms and conditions as communicated between the parties through Virect or otherwise. The Content Producer understands that he/she is performing services for the Job Initiator, and not Virect, and that Virect is not a party to and will be in no way responsible for the performance of either party under any Job Agreement, except for facilitating the transmission of payment from the Job Initiator to the Content Producer in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Both parties agree to act in good faith when negotiating and performing their respective obligations under each Job Agreement.
If Content Producer enters into a Job Agreement other than through the use of Virect, Content Producer will notify Virect within seven (7) days of the date of such Job Agreement.
Facilitation of Payments
All charges on Virect are facilitated through Stripe Connect, a third-party payment processing service. Virect users must agree and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service. Virect users must expressly consent to this Stripe Connected Account Agreement and Terms of Service. By agreeing to this Agreement, or continuing to operate as a User of Virect and its services, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time. As a condition of Virect enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide Virect accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize Virect to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe.
Job Initiator shall pay Virect a fee that is equal to 10% of the amounts payable by Job Initiator in connection with each Job Agreement or, if no amounts are payable by Job Initiator in connection with a Job Agreement, Job Initiator shall pay Virect an amount as determined by the then current fee schedule that can be found on the Virect Website. If payment in connection with Job Agreement by Job Initiator is made other than through Virect, Job Initiator shall pay Virect the Fee within fifteen (15) days of such payment. Job Initiator shall make payment to Virect even if the Content Producer fails to perform fully or partially under the Job Agreement.
Virect may facilitate the transmission of payments from Job Initiator to the Content Producer in connection with a Job Agreement (“Facilitated Payment”). Content Producer hereby authorizes Virect to deduct the Fee from any such Facilitated Payment prior to transferring the remaining funds from the Job Initiator to the Content Producer.
Payment processing services for creators on Virect are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). By agreeing to these terms or continuing to operate as a creator on Virect, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time. As a condition of Virect enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide Virect accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize Virect to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe.
Facilitated Payments Withholding Consent
If Virect facilitates the transmission of any payments from the Job Initiator to the Content Producer in connection with a Job Agreement, Virect may in its sole discretion withhold from any such facilitated payment any amounts that are payable to Virect by the applicable Job Initiator in connection with that Job Agreement.
Virect is not a trustee or fiduciary to either party in respect of any facilitated payments or any Job Agreements. Virect reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to place a hold on a facilitated payment, if Virect determines that the funds may be subject to a breach of applicable law (e.g. fraud or money laundering), or if Virect is required to cooperate with law enforcement.
