4. Payment Terms, Fees
Work Simplr will collect the fees from Company for Student Services performed by Student in accordance with the Project description on the Site, or as otherwise confirmed by email (the “Fees”). Work Simplr will invoice Company, and Company will pay such invoice ten days from the date of invoice or from the acceptance of a Student to a project, whichever comes first.
All payments will be made electronically via credit card, bank wire, ACH transfer, or PayPal. Late payments will result in an interest charge of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month on overdue amounts. Additionally, Company will pay or reimburse Work Simplr’s costs of collection for overdue amounts (including, without limitation, any attorneys’ fees). Work Simplr reserves the right to withdraw all amounts due on the due date if Company selects ACH or credit card as its payment method. Company agrees to maintain an up to date payment method, and hereby authorizes Work Simplr to charge the Company’s designated payment method for amounts due.
NON-PAYMENT If Company fails to pay the Fees or any other amounts when due, Work Simplr will be entitled to the remedies described in this Section in addition to such other remedies that may be available under applicable law or in such written agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Company will be deemed to be in default on the earliest occurrence of any of the following: (a) Company fails to pay the Fees when due, (b) Company fails to pay a balance that is due or to bring, within a reasonable period of time but no more than 30 days, an account current after a credit or debit card is declined or expires, (c) Company fails to pay an invoice issued to the Company by Work Simplr within the time period agreed or, if none, within 30 days, (d) Company initiates a chargeback with a bank or other financial institution resulting in a charge made by Work Simplr for Fees or such other amount due being reversed to the Company, or (e) Company takes other actions or fails to take any action that results in a negative or past-due balance on the Company’s account.
If Company is in default, Work Simplr may, without notice, temporarily or permanently close Company’s Account and revoke Company’s access to the Services. However, Company will remain responsible for any amounts that accrue on any open Projects.
Work Simplr, at our discretion and to the extent permitted by applicable law, may set off amounts due against other amounts received from Company or held by Work Simplr for Company, make appropriate reports to credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities, and cooperate with credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities in any investigation or prosecution.
NO RETURN OF FUNDS Company acknowledges and agrees that Work Simplr will charge Company’s designated Payment Method for the Fees when payment is due, and that once Work Simplr charges or debits the Company’s designated payment method for any Fees, the charge or debit is non-refundable, except as otherwise required by applicable law.
During the term of this Agreement and for six (6) months thereafter, Company will not, directly or indirectly, encourage or solicit to hire, or otherwise hire or engage for performance of services (excluding the Student Services hereunder) any Student who Company is introduced to by Work Simplr in connection with this Agreement. Company also agrees that it will not refer such Student directly or indirectly to any related parties or affiliates including without limitation subsidiaries, parent companies, partnerships, holdings or investors related to Company in any form without processing such request through Work Simplr’s client intake processes. Company also agrees that it will not induce any such Student to recruit or refer talent of any kind to Company or third parties nor will Company cooperate with any efforts of such Student to do the same.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, subject to Company’s prior written notice to Work Simplr, and full payment of the Platform Buyout Fee (defined below), Client may, at any time during or after the term of this Agreement, opt to directly engage or employ any Student.
With respect to each Company-Hired Student (defined below), Company will, within three (3) days of hiring or engaging such Student, pay Work Simplr the “Platform Buyout Fee” of five thousand dollars ($US5,000) representing a reasonable estimate of Work Simplr’s expenses incurred to source, recruit, screen, train and replace each Company-Hired Student, and otherwise operate its business with respect to such replacement Student. The Platform Buyout Fee is mutually agreed not to be a penalty or constraint upon the commercial activities or prospective employment of Company or Student, only reasonable compensation for Work Simplr’s lost commercial investment in its Service in originally sourcing Company- Hired Talent.
"Company-Hired Student" means a Student who meets both of the following two criteria: (1) the Student is introduced to Company by Work Simplr and/or the Student provides or agrees to provide Work to Company, and (2) Student is hired as an employee of or otherwise engaged directly or indirectly by Company either (i) during the period of time of such Student’s work for Client under or in connection with this Agreement and twelve (12) months thereafter or (ii) within twelve (12) months of the date such Student is first introduced by Work Simplr to Company if Company elects not to engage such Student under or in connection with this Agreement.

10. Governing Law
All matters related to the Site, the Services and these Terms shall be governed and constructed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado without regard to conflict of laws provisions.
Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to, or use of, the Site or the Services, to the products you purchase through the Site or the Services (including a subscription), or to your relationship to Work Simplr ("Claims") shall be exclusively submitted to confidential and binding arbitration in Colorado, including based on contract, tort (including intentional tort), fraud, agency, your or our negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions, or any other sources of law; Claims made as counterclaims, cross-claims, third- party claims, interpleaders or otherwise; and Claims made independently or with other claims; provided, however, that to the extent that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Colorado. The party filing arbitration must submit Claims to the American Arbitration Association and follow its rules and procedures for initiating and pursuing arbitration. Any arbitration hearing that you attend will be held at a place chosen by the American Arbitration Association in the same city as the U.S. District Court closest to your then current residential address, or at some other place to which you and Work Simplr agree in writing, and the arbitrator shall apply Colorado law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act. YOU SHALL NOT BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION BY OR AGAINST OTHER USERS OR TO ARBITRATE ANY CLAIM AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. You may obtain copies of the current rules, and forms and instructions for initiating arbitration by contacting the American Arbitration Association at using the contact information noted below.
A single, neutral arbitrator will resolve Claims. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer with at least ten (10) years’ experience or a retired or former judge, selected in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will follow the procedures and rules of the American Arbitration Association which are in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless those procedures and rules are inconsistent with these Terms, in which case these Terms will prevail. Those procedures and rules may limit the discovery available to you or us. The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect your customer account information and other confidential information if requested to do so by you or us. Each party to the arbitration will bear the expense of that party's attorneys, experts, and witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines. The arbitrator's award is final and binding on the parties.
ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DATE THE CLAIM ARISES. AS NOTED ABOVE, YOU AND WORK SIMPLR HEREBY VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT EITHER MAY HAVE TO A JURY TRIAL.
We will not choose to arbitrate any Claim you bring in small claims court. However, if such a Claim is determined by the court to be outside its jurisdiction, the parties agree that the dispute shall then be submitted to arbitration.
