Terms and Conditions ("Terms")
Last updated: July 1, 2022
Please read these Terms and Conditions ("Terms", "Terms and Conditions") carefully before using the https:/www.jubileescholars.org website (the "Service") operated by Jubilee Scholars ("us", "we", or "our").
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service (“Customer”) and Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”).
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.
If you wish to purchase any service made available through the Service ("Purchase"), you may be sent an email for initiating a Project Request, Service ("Purchase") will receive an emailed payment invoice from our third-party Invoice system, Wave Accounting, after personnel completes the project at each milestone or for California (CA) resident - every two weeks, or be emailed an upfront payment invoice for a PMO Service ("Purchase") after project approval, or be emailed recurring payment invoices for PMO Service ("Purchase") at each project milestone, or be emailed a payment invoice at another agreed timeline, or be linked to a third-party website and be asked to supply certain information including, without limitation, your Name and payment information.
Payment invoices are emailed through Wave Accounting, in Customer’s chosen currency. Applicable processing fees and taxes may be added to the invoice.
Payment invoices emailed to Customer are to be paid prior to the release of any customer-owned tangible and intangible assets, after Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”) confirms project completion at milestones or for CA residents, every two-weeks. Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”) that fail to release the Customer’s assets after receiving Service ("Purchase") payment will be terminated, unless it is due to incidents beyond their control (eg. hurricane, tornado, blackout, and related incidents) then Jubilee Scholars will attempt to retrieve Customer’s assets directly from the Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”)..
Customer inquiries for Service ("Purchase") are reviewed within 5 business days. Initial and recurring payment invoices will be sent at the agreed upon milestones. Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”) performing the Service ("Purchase") may receive milestone payment from Jubilee Scholars within 7 business days, depending on their choice of banking. Customer may be suspended or disabled from being serviced for non-payment of recurring payment invoices at the sole discretion of Jubilee Scholars. Any accounts that are not collectable by Jubilee Scholars will be turned over to an outside collection agency. If your account is turned over for collection, you agree to pay Jubilee Scholars a "Collection Fee" of not less than $200, in addition to the unpaid recurring payments, and any fees that may be imposed by the outside collection agency or its legal representation.
Customer choosing to pay Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”) through Milestones are required to do so at the agreed Milestone(s), prior to receiving Customer’s project-based assets from Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”).
California (CA) considers milestone payments to be escrow activity, requiring an escrow account to service Customer and Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”) that are (CA) residents. Jubilee Scholars provides an alternative venue for (CA) residents: (CA) resident Customer have to pay Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”) in two-weeks increments, regardless of project completion or request for another non-milestone payment method. Personnel (“Freelancers and Subcontractors”) that are (CA) residents can accept two-weeks wages or request that Customer use another method for non-milestone payments.
Customer may request flexible payments because of Project Sponsor requirements, due to grant funding, or for being a California (CA) resident.
