In a nutshell, if you or the freelancer don’t play by the rules, the one being naughty has 14 days to correct their behavior, after they have been told in writing to do so, or else the game is over. No going past go, no collecting R200, you get the idea.

This is a slightly longer one, so grab a beer (you are at least 18 or you should have stopped reading at point 14) and a seat. Firstly, don’t tell any porky pies via our website, it’s not nice. Secondly, no hackers allowed, you are not Hugh Jackman in Swordfish (if you are Hugh Jackman can I please have you autograph, my wife will love me forever) so don’t try and get into the nitty-gritty of our website or programs in any way whatsoever. We will also cancel your use of the platform if you do any of the above, or if you get us into hot water via your actions. This point is so important, we decided to write a poem about it: There was once a hacker named Hugh; who wrote a line of code, or a few; the people at noSweat got mad; so they called Chuck, and it ended bad; for Hugh. We also have the right to disclose information in the event that the law requires it, or to prevent fraud, or to protect the rights of, its users, and the public in general.

This one is quite easy. If we introduce you to a freelancer, and at any time in the 12 months after you met each other, you offer to employ said freelancer in a part or fulltime position, you need to tell us. As we made the introductions, and are now saying goodbye to one of our valuable resources, there is a placement fee of 13.5% of whatever nice big annual salary you offer the freelancer, and it should be big because you think they are great, why else would you be employing them!

This is all the legalese, where they say things like “including” means “including without limitation” so it’s a hard one to squeeze into a few lines, so please read it. What it all boils down to is that if you stick to all of the stuff above, none of this is ever likely to be necessary.
