Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our p2w2 Terms of Service, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

Security

Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are bidders, buyers or sellers on our sites or other sites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. p2w2 does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable.

The payments to Professionals for the projects undertaken through the p2w2 marketplace have to be undertaken by the Buyer through p2w2 payment mechanisms. The payment options can change from time to time, and typically contain options like bank transfer, wire transfer, check, credit card or PayPal(TM).

Buyer can pay either by wire transfer, bank transfer, credit card or PayPalTMusing a step by step process provided in payment page. By providing us with your credit card information, you authorize us to charge such credit card for the amounts agreed in the payment terms with the Professional.

Any payment made through any channel IS FINAL.

Payment for p2w2 Services

Buyer has to make its payment to p2w2 as per the terms of payment agreed with the Professional. p2w2 will promptly transfer the payment to Professional after deducting its service fees. p2w2 will not keep any money on behalf of Buyer or Professional. Thus, Professionals will receive an amount that is the project costs billed by them minus the p2w2 fees.

Payment for Subscriptions

p2w2 Subscriptions can be paid either by credit card or PayPal(TM) using a step by step process provided in Subscriptions page. By providing us with your credit card information, you authorize us to charge such credit card for the amounts stated on the Subscriptions page. The subscription payments are typically charged every month (or periodically depending on the subscription plan), and the subscription period begins on the date that p2w2 receives your payment. You can cancel the subscription any time on the Subscriptions page; when you cancel or change a subscription, p2w2 will stop charging you for the subscription from the following period. But you agree that you cannot cancel the subscription that is already paid for. No refunds of fees already paid will be given.

The new billing period will then be based upon the date p2w2 receives payment of the new subscription fee. You can cancel your subscription any time on the Subscriptions page. The cancellation of a membership will go into effect at the end of the billing period. If you downgrade your membership to a lower cost subscription, you will not receive a refund or credit for the fees already paid.

Dispute resolution mechanism

Buyer and Professional engaged in a project are governed by their Buyer-Professional agreement. Any disputes in connection with services provided by Professionals or payments made by Buyers remain between such Buyers and Professionals. For any dispute arising between them, Buyer and Professional will pursue resolution of the dispute in accordance with the following steps ("Dispute Resolution Mechanism").

p2w2 Mediation

In the event Buyer and Professional fail to resolve any dispute through the Self-Mediation process within 15 business days following Buyer or Professional's proposal for it, the Professional or Buyer will have the right to notify p2w2. p2w2 will review the Terms of Engagement and all project documents uploaded to the Site within 10 business days. p2w2 will contact Buyer and Professional to arrange a mediation conference call. The goal of the conference call is to resolve the dispute and deliver joint written instructions to p2w2 concerning a status of payment. p2w2 will not make a determination or assess blame. p2w2 will only act to facilitate discussion between the two parties to foster a resolution of the dispute.

Arbitration

In the event Buyer and Professional have still failed to resolve the dispute within five business days after the p2w2 Mediation conference call provided above, both parties agree not to bring an action in court but first go into Arbitration facilitated by p2w2, and as per the arbitration terms. It is agreed and understood that p2w2 will not bear any cost of such Arbitration. Parties electing arbitration will be solely responsible for the costs associated with the arbitration.

Judicial Resolution

Failing both the mediation process and the arbitration option set forth above, or in the event the total amount of the award sought exceeds $10,000, Buyer and Professional at each parties own expense will have the right to pursue judicial resolution of the dispute. It is agreed and understood that p2w2 is only a facilitator and a venue for services provided by the Professional to Buyer, and that Buyer and Professional are governed by the Buyer-Professional agreement that does not involve p2w2 as such for the services rendered.

You are encouraged to use p2w2 to manage projects, and use messages in p2w2 to maintain an electronic record of all written communication including clarifications and agreements related to scope, deliverables, milestones, timelines, price, feedback on deliverables, requests for revisions, acceptance of deliverables and completion of milestones.

Open communication helps Professionals develop relevant proposal, Buyers make informed award decisions, both Buyers and Professionals to engage with each other in managing projects together, and reduces the risk of delivery of high quality services in a timely manner. In the event of a dispute, all electronic communication on p2w2 will serve as the record for resolution of the dispute.

Rating and feedback system

You acknowledge and agree that the Site will contain public feedback from Registered Members with whom you have transacted. You acknowledge that feedback results for you may consist of comments and ratings left by other Registered Members, and that p2w2 may calculate a composite feedback rating based on these individual ratings. Professionals agree to be rated by Buyers along several criteria, as determined by p2w2. p2w2 provides its feedback and rating system as a means through which Registered Members can express their opinions publicly, and p2w2 does not monitor or censor these opinions or investigate any remarks posted by Users for accuracy or reliability unless a Registered Member brings the posting to p2w2's attention. You may be held legally responsible for damages suffered by other Registered Members or third parties as a result of these remarks if a court finds that these remarks are legally actionable or defamatory. Under federal law, p2w2 is not legally responsible for any feedback or comments posted or made available on this Site by any Users or third parties, even if that information is defamatory or otherwise legally actionable. You agree to report violations or abuses of our rating and feedback system immediately by contacting p2w2, and agree not to take any actions that undermine the integrity of the feedback system, including but not limited to the following:
  • Leaving fake feedback for yourself or another User or Registered User such as using a secondary Username or other Registered Users to artificially raise the level of your own feedback or create negative feedback for another Registered User
  • Feedback threats such as demanding another Registered User to perform a task by threatening to leave negative feedback or withholding deliverables or funds until another Registered User agrees to leave positive feedback or no feedback.
  • Feedback solicitation such as offering to sell or buy Services in exchange for good feedback, trading feedback undeservedly or buying feedback.
In order to protect the integrity of the feedback system and protect Registered Members from abuse, p2w2 will consider removing feedback under the following circumstances:
  • Feedback or information posted seeks to elicit or solicit any Registered Member's contact information, such as other Registered Member's email addresses, for any non-p2w2 related commercial or business purposes, or to transmit any unsolicited advertising, "junk mail," "spam,", "chain letters" or any other derogatory purpose
  • Feedback or information posted contains language that is profane, vulgar, racist or contains adult material
  • Feedback or information posted is shown to have been left by any Registered Member who is in violation of p2w2's eligibility requirements, or by or for a User who has conducted any fraudulent transaction
  • Feedback or information posted is not directly related to transactions conducted through p2w2
  • Feedback or information posted makes any reference to actions taken or purported to be taken by p2w2 or any law enforcement organization
  • When p2w2 is provided with a ruling or settlement agreement from a valid and certified dispute resolution service, or is provided with a court order finding that the disputed feedback is slanderous, libelous, defamatory or otherwise illegal
  • The Registered User who left feedback provided p2w2 with false contact information during the transaction period (as verified by p2w2) and cannot be contacted by p2w2
  • The Registered User who left feedback is participating in a p2w2 transaction with the intent of leaving feedback as part of a campaign to harass p2w2 members (as verified by p2w2)
  • Negative feedback that was intended for another Registered Member only when the Registered Member responsible for the mistaken feedback contacts p2w2 and places the same feedback for the appropriate User. This does not apply to feedback that was mistakenly marked negative instead of positive or vice versa, in which case the Registered Member can contact us to file a feedback review request
  • Any reason solely determined at p2w2's discretion deemed to be disruptive of p2w2 services

If you are a Professional, you agree that for a period of one year after acceptance of a proposal, if you propose or provide any services to the same Buyer, you will do so exclusively on the Site, whether such services are the same project, a follow-up project, or new unrelated services.
