- YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HYBREEDNG PROS
You acknowledge and agree that your arranging and obtaining of Employee Services from a HybreedNG Pro creates a direct business relationship between you and that HybreedNG Pro, and your interactions and dealings with such HybreedNG Pro are solely between you and such HybreedNG Pro. HybreedNG Pros are independent contractors and are not employees of HybreedNG. HybreedNG is not responsible or liable for the actions or inactions of any HybreedNG Pro in relation to the Employee Services. You shall have the sole responsibility for any obligations or liabilities to HybreedNG Pros or other third parties that arise from your arranging and obtaining Employee Services. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for taking such precautions as may be reasonable and proper (including maintaining adequate insurance that meets the requirements of all applicable laws) regarding any acts or omissions of a HybreedNG Pros or other third party.
You understand that use of the Services may result in charges to you for the Employee Services you receive from a HybreedNG Pro (“Charges“), and you agree to pay all such Charges that you incur. After you have received Employee services obtained through your use of the Service, HybreedNG will facilitate your payment of the applicable Charges on behalf of the HybreedNG Pro, as such HybreedNG Pro’s limited payment collection agent. Payment of the Charges in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the HybreedNG Pro. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by HybreedNG. You retain the right to negotiate the Charges with a HybreedNG Pro for Employee services received by you from such HybreedNG Pro at the time you receive such services. HybreedNG will respond accordingly to any request from a HybreedNG Pro to modify the Charges for a particular service.
As between you and HybreedNG, HybreedNG reserves the right to establish, remove and/or revise Charges for any or all Employee Services obtained through the use of the Services at any time in HybreedNG’s sole discretion. HybreedNG will use reasonable efforts to inform you of Charges that may apply, provided that you will be responsible for Charges incurred under your Account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof. HybreedNG may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services obtained through the use of the Services, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Services or the Charges applied to you. You may elect to cancel your request for Employee services from a HybreedNG Pro at any time prior to such HybreedNG Pro’s arrival, in which case you may be charged a cancellation fee, in accordance with HybreedNG’s then current cancellation policy.
This payment structure is intended to fully compensate the HybreedNG Pro for the services or goods provided. HybreedNG does not designate any portion of your payment as a tip or gratuity to the HybreedNG Pro. You understand and agree that, while you are free to provide additional payment as a gratuity to any HybreedNG Pro who provides you with services obtained through the Service, you are under no obligation to do so. Gratuities are voluntary. After you have received services obtained through the Service, you will have the opportunity to rate your experience and leave additional feedback about your HybreedNG Pro.
5.3 Service Charge.
In consideration of HybreedNG’s provision of the HybreedNG Services for your use and benefit hereunder, you agree to pay HybreedNG a service charge on a per Employee Services transaction basis calculated as a percentage of the Charges (regardless of any alternately negotiated Charges), as provided or otherwise made available by HybreedNG from time to time (“Service Charge”). HybreedNG reserves the right to change the Service Charge at any time in its sole discretion, and HybreedNG will provide you with notice in the event of such change. Continued use of the HybreedNG Services after any such change in the Service Charge calculation shall constitute your consent to such change.
5.4 Payment Method.
You agree to pay all applicable Charges via the payment method specified in your Account, which may be by ACH payment or credit card (“Payment Method”). For ACH and credit card payments, all Charges and Service Fees are due immediately, and HybreedNG will automatically debit your payments or charge your credit card using the preferred Payment Method designated in your Account, after which HybreedNG will send you a report by email. If your primary Account Payment Method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that HybreedNG may, as the HybreedNG Pro’s limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available. In the event that there are unpaid or past due amounts for Charges or Services Fees associated with your Account, you must pay a finance charge of the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by law on such outstanding balances, plus all expenses of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.

- DISPUTE RESOLUTION
You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes“) will be settled by binding arbitration between you and HybreedNG, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.

The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
8.3 Arbitration Process.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the JAM’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the arbitrator shall be selected on an expedited basis in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS.
8.4 Arbitration Location and Procedure.
Unless you and HybreedNG otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and HybreedNG submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing, or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS Rules. Subject to the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
8.5 Arbitrator’s Decision.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. HybreedNG will not seek, and hereby waives all rights HybreedNG may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if HybreedNG prevail in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the JAMS Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, HybreedNG will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
