Terms of Use
Parties and Purpose
Xpert Direct (“XD”) is a technology company providing an online marketplace for highly specialist engineers (Xperts) and companies (Clients) to find each other through the use of precision matching technology, for the purpose of agreeing service contracts (projX) to advance the delivery of complex electronics engineering projects. Collectively, Clients and Xperts are know as Users (“Users”).
Xperts and Clients Role
Xperts and Clients explicitly and knowingly agree to support this aim and agree that they will not circumvent or undermine the fees charged by Xpert Direct in any way nor will they allow those fees to be circumvented and if they are approached or asked to circumvent those fees that they share a responsibility to report such action or requests to Xpert Direct.
Fees
Xpert Direct charges a simple and transparent 10% fee to Clients, based on all approved time spent working on the Client’s projX or any subsequent work that stems from an introduction initiated or facilitated by XD. As such both Client and Xpert agree to confirm any contracts via XD and to use XD’s online timesheet as the basis for billing, such that XD can invoice the client for its fee. These fees are used to manage the platform to ensure quality, reliability and continuous improvement to our marketplace.
Therefore, XD agree to use transparent pricing and maintain that pricing in an open and accessible form and will ensure that all users are explicitly made aware of any necessary changes to the pricing model. In return, users agree to comply with this pricing structure and any attempt to circumvent these fees in any way shall result in an automatic penalty fee of €10,000 being charged to the Client for such breach and may also result in removal from XD’s online marketplace.
