1. About the services
The Site is an online platform for connection, recruitment, communication and production  management directed primarily towards freelancers, media production companies and other project creators, and via the Qyre “Quick Hire"-Service, as further described below, also towards consumers and other kinds of customers.

After creating an account, you will be able to create your own profile with information about which production area you work in, previous productions/experience, upload images, videos and other media to showcase yourself and your work and include other relevant information that you wish to share with the other users on the Site. You will also indicate your availability for engagements. Once recruited to a production or other engagement, you may get administrator access and communicate with other users involved in the same production. As a production company, or a user with administration access, you may follow-up on the production, see users involved, get statistics about the ongoing productions, etc.

Please note that some of the features available on the Site, such as bookings, invoicing, document signing, financing, advanced project monitoring, etc., may have separate terms and conditions, which are provided by a third party (e.g. payment processing services, invoicing and contract signing solutions) and/or be subject to subscription fees. In that case, such terms and conditions are presented in connection with the relevant feature. All features are further described on the Site.  In addition hereto, please note the special terms for the Qyre “Quick Hire"- Service, as further described in Section 3 below. 
2. Your use of the services

You may not, whether by yourself or anyone acting on your behalf, use the Services for any other purpose than as expressly stipulated herein. Non-permitted use of the Services includes, but is not limited to: (i) using the Services and/or the Site for any illegal, immoral, unlawful and/or unauthorized (i.e. purposes for which the Services are not intended) purposes; (ii) interfering with or violating other users’ rights to privacy and other rights, or harvesting or collecting personally identifiable information about other users, whether manually or otherwise; (iii) bypassing any measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Services; or (iv) copying, modifying, altering, adapting, making available, reverse engineering, decompiling, or disassembling any portion of the content made accessible by the Company  on or through the Services and/or the Site or publicly display, reproduce, create derivative works from, perform, distribute, or otherwise use such content, other than as expressly permitted under these Terms or applicable law.

Objectionable content may not be uploaded or displayed and we reserve the right to remove said content and ban or block policy violating users. Objectionable content includes, but is not limited to: (i) sexually explicit materials; (ii) obscene, defamatory, libelous, slanderous, violent and/or unlawful content or profanity; (iii) promoting harassment, bigotry, racism, hatred or physical harm of any king against any group or individual; (iv) content that infringes upon the rights of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity or other personal or proprietary right, or that is deceptive or fraudulent; (v) content that promotes the use or sale of illegal or regulated substances, tobacco products, ammunition and/or firearms; and (v) gambling, including without limitation, any online casino, sports books, bingo or poker. Any user can report content they deem objectionable for review. Content will be moderated by us to ensure the timely removal of any and all objectionable content.  

You warrant that all user information provided by you to the Site and to the Company is true and correct and that, when necessary, you will update your user information in the Services so that it remains true and correct at all times.

You are responsible for maintaining control over your account and for preventing third parties from accessing the Services. You undertake not to reveal your password or any other personalized details associated with your account which could enable a third party to access your account.

2.5 The availability and functionality of the Services depend on various factors, such as communication networks, software, hardware and the Company’s suppliers. We do not warrant that the Services and/or Site will operate at all times without disruption or interruption, or that it will be immune from unauthorized access or error-free

3. Commission and payment processing
You acknowledge that all production engagements, or similar jobs, gigs, rentals or other opportunities presented via the Site are subject to a percentage-based commission payable to the Company. The size of the commission may vary depending on type and size of assignment and is stated on the Site.

By booking an engagement via the Site, you accept that, although your contract for the particular engagement is with the performer of the relevant services, the fees for the engagement (including the commission to the Company) may be invoiced to you by the Company, or by use of a third-party supplier (Klarna) on behalf of the performer.

In case payments are handled by the Company on your behalf (regardless of the manner in which it is handled), the Company will deduct its commission from any payment from a user, before any amount is paid out to you (being the performer of the service).

For the avoidance of doubt, the Company is not responsible for any obligations in the agreement between the performer of a service engagement and the user, including any payment obligations, and the Company is not responsible for collecting any outstanding amounts from the user e.g. sending payment reminders or calculating interest in case of delayed payments.
4. Special Terms for Qyre “Quick Hire”

Qyre “Quick Hire” is a Service which enables you to publish and offer to the users of the Site (the "User(s)") services such as jobs, gigs, rentals and other assignments  related to media production (collectively, "Freelance Service(s)") against the payment of a percent-based commission to the Company, as  further specified on the Site. 

As the provider of the Site, the Company does not own, control or manage any of the Freelance Services and the Company is not a party to the contracts concluded between you and the User. Thus, when you publish a Freelance Service on the Site, you undertake to provide the Users with relevant terms and conditions applicable to the provision of the Freelance Service, including pricing, payment terms and other relevant terms for the User's use, and your provision, of the Freelance Service. 

When you accept a booking request from a User via the Site, or receive a booking confirmation through the Site, you enter into a contract directly with the User, and you are responsible for providing the applicable Freelance Service under the terms and at the prices provided by you to the User.

You acknowledge that the User may be a consumer and thus have statutory consumer rights, such as the right of withdrawal for a period of fourteen (14) days from your confirmation of the User's order for the Freelance Service. The Company may provide information to the User, in its general terms and conditions, of the right of withdrawal and that there is mandatory consumer legislation, but it will be your responsibility to ensure that these rights may be exercised, and the Company will refer any User wishing to exercise any rights to you.

Your relationship with the Company is that of an independent entity and not an employee, agent, joint venture or partner of the Company, except that the Company may act as a payment collection agent for you (see Section 4.7 below).

You acknowledge that the Qyre “Quick Hire” Service is provided to all visitors of the Company's Site and that any content (such as pictures, texts, videos etc.) published by you in connection with a Freelance Service will become publicly available and visible for anyone visiting the Site. You may, at any time, choose to delete a Freelance Service or content published by you.

4.7. Commission and collection of payment

The Company will assist you in collecting payments from the Users and execute payments to you by use of a third-party supplier.  In order for us to execute payouts to you, you must provide us with relevant bank details or invoicing information, as applicable, depending on the payment method chosen by you at the Site.

The Company is entitled to a percentage-based commission, as specified on the Site, for all Freelance Services performed via the Qyre “Quick Hire” Service. We will deduct the agreed commission amount before paying out any received payments from the Users to you. We will not charge you any commission for Freelance Services in case of non-payment from the User.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Company is not responsible for any obligations in the agreement between you and the User, including any payment obligations, and the Company is not responsible for collecting any outstanding amounts from the User e.g. sending payment reminders or calculating interest in case of delayed payments.

For the sake of clarity, the Company shall have no obligation whatsoever to fulfil any obligations or requirements stipulated in the contracts, agreements, etc., or otherwise agreed, between the users of the Services, including the Users of a Freelance Service, and shall not be liable for any damages arising or resulting from such agreements (including, but not limited to, non-payments).
