Description of Service
Workurious website works as a platform where buyers can purchase a task/service or ask for a customized task. After the task is purchased, freelancers are notified about the task. The first freelancer that accepts the task is responsible to deliver the task within the time frame. Freelancers are expected to deliver the tasks in a professional manner as per the task specifications. Freelancers can opt not to accept the task, if they don’t want.
In case of a customized task, buyer must provide clear task details and specifications so that the freelancer can understand it properly. Before accepting the task, Workurious staff or freelancer may ask for additional information.
After task delivery, if it is not as per the satisfaction, buyer may request for another revision. The number of revisions depend on the discretion of freelancer.
Workurious.com is a platform of freelancing services, where Freelancers are not Workurious employees. Thus, Workurious shall not have any liability or obligation for any acts of freelancers, as we have no control over quality or legality of a freelancer’s work.
If the task is completed successfully and buyer accepts it, the proprietary rights of the task product will be owned by buyer. If buyer doesn’t accept the completed task and it is not paid for, freelancer will retain the proprietary rights of the completed task product. Freelancer hereby grants an exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, unlimited, and unconditional license to use and commercialize completed task product, to buyer, in any manner known now or being discovered in the future. If needed, freelancer shall sign any documents required for buyer, or provide support, to document and enforce his or her proprietary rights of completed task product. Freelancer obligations regarding proprietary rights transfer will continue even after freelancer stops using Workurious platform.
The completed task product delivered by freelancer shall not have any pre-existing intellectual property, without receiving the written consent of copyright holder and buyer in advance. If completed task product consists any unapproved pre-existing intellectual property, the freelancer shall not be entitled for payment or have to return the payment for previous works.
After delivering a task product, freelancer shall return any media or material, sent by buyer and shall remove them from his or her systems or premises.
