You are responsible for complying with your obligations to other users, including reviewing, accepting and paying for satisfactory services and deliverables in a timely manner where you are the Employer.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with your obligations to other Users. If you do not, you may become liable to that User. Similarly, if another User breaches any obligation to you, you are solely responsible for enforcing any rights that you may have. We have no responsibility for enforcing any rights under a Service Contract.

Nothing in this Terms of Service is shall be construed as overriding any right, including statutory warranties, which by applicable law may not be excluded.

18. Local Jobs

UAVLance offers a service that connects Users in the same or close geographical location. As Such we may display the location of Users to persons browsing the Website on that map. Every Employer seeking services for Local jobs will be asked to provide the location where the Local job is to be performed or the goods are to be delivered. You may not disclose, in any Job posted, personal details such as the your name, street number, phone number or the email address or in any other public communication on the UAVLance Website.

Unless the service or task, goods or transaction is prohibited by law, by this Terms of Service or by any of our Policies, a Pilot is obliged to complete a transaction once the Pilot’s bid has been accepted by an Employer. Upon completion of said service, task, or transaction or delivery of said goods, the User must log on to the Website and click the "Complete" button for that Local job. Failure to complete the service or task will constitute a breach of this Terms of Service.

Where any update is made to a local job by the User after it has been published on the website, all bids made for that local job prior to the update will be cancelled and the bidding process restarted.

Our fees for local jobs are applied to the amount of the awarded bid to perform the services for the Local job. Any items purchased by the Pilot as part of performing the service are between the Employer and Pilot.

19. Skills Challenges

Employers can create and promote a Skills Challenge on the Website by providing a Skills Challenge Brief and paying the Skills Challenge Prize in accordance with the terms for promoting such challenge which is set out on our Website.

Employers acknowledge and agree that they are solely responsible for the operation and promotion of the Skills Challenge and warrant that it will comply with all applicable law. We are not liable for any loss suffered by a User in connection with a Skills Challenge including but not limited to loss suffered (or penalties imposed) in connection with a contravention of law.

Pilots who wish to enter Skills Challenges may submit their entries in image, video, text or other format as specified on the Website. All entries must comply with the Skills Challenge Brief and must not infringe any Intellectual Property Rights. Any entry which infringes any Intellectual Property Rights will be an ineligible entry and subject to removal either by the Employer or us and subject to action as per our Copyright Infringement Policy.

Skills Challenges can be promoted in one of two ways:

    • Regular prepaid Skills Challenge, in which a Employer may select one or more winning Pilot(s) and Employers may request that the Skills Challenge Prize be released back to them if a winner has not been chosen within 30 days of the Skills Challenge closing date; or
    • a guaranteed Skills Challenge, under which a Employer may select one or more winning Pilot(s) and if no winner is selected, we will release the Skills Challenge Prize to all Employers who enter the guaranteed Skills Challenge and charge the appropriate fees. The Skills Challenge Prize will not be released back to the Employer, and the Employer may not use any entries that have been submitted. After 30 days of the Skills Challenge closing date, we reserve the right to distribute the Skills Challenge prize to the participating Employers.

After awarding a Skills Challenge Prize to a Pilot, and upon completion and upload of the winning entry (including all related files) to the Employer, the Skills Challenge Prize will be released to the winner of the Skills Challenge unless disputed by the Employer in which case the conflict must be resolved between the Employer and winning Entrant(s) before we can release the Skills Challenge Prize to the winning Entrant(s). The Employer may not use any entries other than the winning entry/entries, and may not:

    • Promote a Skills Challenge while simultaneously hosting a Skills Challenge through another service;
    • Request Pilots to submit entries via other means than the Website;
    • Award another Account owned by the Employer or award in a manner that might be deemed as collusion.

20. Independent Contractors

Each User acknowledges and agrees that the relationship between Employers and Pilots is that of independent contractors. Each party shall perform services as an independent contractor and nothing in this Terms of Service shall be deemed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency or employment relationship between Users or between UAVLance and any User.

21. Intellectual Property Rights infringement

We are committed to responding to clear notices of alleged intellectual property rights infringement. If you believe that your Intellectual Property Rights have been violated, please notify us via the contact page on our Website and we will investigate.

22. Funds and Withdrawal of Funds

You may have funds in your account either by making a deposit into your account or by receiving payment for services. We will hold these funds in our operating accounts held with reputable financial institutions. Funds in your Account are not held separately by us and may be commingled with our general operating funds and funds of other User's Accounts.

We may receive interest on these funds from the financial institutions with which we hold our operating accounts. For the avoidance of doubt, any such interest we receive belongs to us and we will not be liable to any User for any imputed interest on such funds including interest on funds that are in your Account.

If your Account has a negative balance, we may set-off the negative amount of funds with funds that you subsequently receive into your Account. In the event that we offset a negative amount of funds it may be bundled with another debit coming out of your Account.

Similarly, we may deduct amounts you owe us from money you subsequently add or receive into your Account. You acknowledge and agree that we may at our discretion, suspend or limit your Account until such time as your Account no longer has a negative amount.

We may reverse payments you have made from your Account to other User Accounts on the Website, either at your request or as deemed necessary by us in accordance with the terms of this Terms of Service.

We reserve the right to collect any funds owed to us by any other legal means.

You acknowledge and agree that:

    • We are not a bank or other licensed financial institution and do not provide banking services or any financial services to you, nor are we acting as a trustee or fiduciary with respect to your funds or payments;
    • The funds shown in your Account represents our unsecured obligations to you with respect to your rights to authorize us to make payments for the purchase or sale of Pilot Services through the Website;
    • Any payments transferred through UAVLance or funds held in your account are not insured deposits and are subject to default, loss or forfeiture;
    • To the extent that we are required to release funds from your Account to you, you will become our unsecured creditor until such funds are paid to you;
    • Funds may only loaded into your Account, or released from your Account, by us and you must only use the mechanisms available on the Website to pay for, or receive funds in respect of Pilot Services;
    • Your funds will be held together with funds of other User's and our own funds and such commingled funds could be used to pay other Users or for our general corporate purposes or otherwise, however, we will remain obliged to release or refund funds at your direction in accordance with this Terms of Service.

23. Security Measures Relating to Funds and Withdrawal of Funds

As part of our fraud prevention measures, your first and subsequent withdrawal of funds earned may be delayed for up to fifteen days. We may require that you be UAVLance Verified before you can withdraw funds from your UAVLance account, irrespective of whether or not a delay has been enforced. You acknowledge and agree that we may seek to verify your identity as described above

If we become aware that any funds received into your Account is a result of a fraudulent transaction, such as using a stolen credit card to make a Deliverables Payment, such payment will be reversed immediately. You will be required to pay back such funds if they have already been released to you. Failure to do so may result in the suspension, cancelation or limitation of your account and we may take further action to recover such funds from you. We reserve the right to suspend your request to withdraw funds if we suspect that the source of the funds is fraudulent.

We may place a limit on any or all of the funds in your account, at our sole discretion, if we deem that there is a high risk associated with your account, including the risks of fraud, reversal or chargeback. We may also place a limit on the funds in your account if we are required to do so by law; we believe the payment beneficiary is someone other than you or the payment is being made to a country where we do not offer our Service;

Pending the resolution of any Conflict initiated by you or other user, we may place a temporary limit on the funds in your account to cover the amount of any potential liability in the event that the conflict is not resolved in your favor. If the conflict is resolved in your favor, we will lift the limit on your funds.

24. Refunds

You may ask for a refund at any time for any funds that you have paid into your Account except if the amount to refund relates to a Deliverables Payment or relates to fees or charges payable to us. If the amount the User has asked to refund relates to: (1) a Deliverables Payment, the Conflict Resolution Process may be followed; or (2) our fees and charges, the process set out in the Clause "Conflicts with Us" must be followed.

Regardless of whether a User has requested funds be refunded, we may choose to make a refund: (1) if we are required by law or consider that we are required by law to do so; (2) we are required to do so in terms of any refund policy specified by us; (3) we deem that not making a refund will lead to a dispute or increase our costs; (4) where we believe or have reason to believe that the original payment made by the User is fraudulent; (5) the User made a duplicate payment in error; or (6) we consider, in our sole opinion, that it is likely that the refund of funds is necessary to avoid a credit card chargeback.

Refunds will be made via the same payment method(s) through which User made the original payment to us. At our sole discretion, we may use an alternative payment method in exceptional circumstances.

If you have already initiated a chargeback request with your credit card issuer, you must not request a refund of funds by contacting us and must not seek double recovery. Similarly, once a refund request has been initiated, you may not simultaneously initiate a chargeback request with your credit card issuer until after all reasonable efforts have been made to resolve your request with us.

If we reasonably determine, having considered all the relevant circumstances, that you have made an excessive or unreasonable number of requests to refund funds back to you or chargebacks, we may suspend, limit or close your Account. There is no minimum amount for a refund.

25. Payment Reversals and Chargebacks

You acknowledge and agree that where a payment made to you is the subject of a chargeback or reversal, we will be entitled to recover such chargebacks and reversals and we will accordingly reverse such payments made to you.

26. Currencies

UAVLance displays rates in the local currency of the jurisdiction in which the website is being accessed. You understand and agree that the rates displayed are only indicative market exchange rates and the amount specified in the origin currency is the actual amount. For your convenience, you may withdraw funds from the Website in another currency. If you wish to do so, UAVLance will quote an exchange rate which you may choose to accept. We may charge a currency conversion fee which will be incorporated into the exchange rate provided to you and the currency exchange will be settled immediately. Currency conversions are final and irreversible.

You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for all risks associated with converting and maintaining funds in various available currencies, including but not limited to the risk that the value of these funds will fluctuate as exchange rates change, which could result in decreases in the value of your funds in aggregate. You must not use (or attempt to use) the Website to engage in speculative trading, which could result in substantial losses. We are not a financial services provider. Use of currency conversion is at your own risk.

We reserve the right to reject any request for a conversion of currency at any time.

All information we provide on the Website in respect of currency conversion is for general information only.

27. Deliverables Payments

Our Deliverables Payments system allows controlled payments to be made by an Employer to a Pilot for services provided. An amount equal to the Deliverables Payment will be locked from the Employer's Account and held by us until the Employer authorizes its release; where a Conflict Resolution is initiated, the Deliverables Payments will be held until the Conflict is resolved. Deliverables Payments cannot be claimed by the Pilot until:

    • i. The Employer acknowledges that the Pilot has completed the agreed services satisfactorily and the Employer instructs us to pay the Pilot for the services performed;
    • The Employer and Pilot agree that the funds can be claimed by the Pilot;
    • If there is a conflict, the Employer and Pilot have concluded the Conflict Resolution Process and the Conflict is resolved in the Pilot's favor;

If we do not receive any instructions from an Employer in respect of a Deliverables Payment within six months after the day that the Deliverables Payment was paid and the Employer has not logged into their Account during that time, the Deliverables Payment will be unlocked and released back to the Employer.

28. Deliverables Conflict Resolution Services

In the event of a Conflict between an Employer and a Pilot regarding a return or release of Deliverables Payments, or if an Employer does not approve of the Pilot's work product, the parties may elect to resolve the issue under the Deliverables Conflict Resolution Services offered by UAVLance as set out in the Deliverables Conflicts Policy.
