Outlined below are some of our standard options for payment terms. These terms may be altered in our Statement of Work, in such case the terms outlined in the Statement of Work will replace any outlined here.
(i) Prepaid Jobs. In the event the Services are to be provided as a prepaid job (“Prepaid Job”), Client must prepay for the Services by funding a prepaid account maintained by Field Agent.

If Field Agent terminates your ability to access and use the Platform because you have violated the Policies then any Services that have been completed by Agents but not yet accepted by you will be deemed accepted.
e. Our Liability: We will not be liable if we are not able to complete a transaction for any reason, including, but not limited to:
