    Opting Out

    If you choose to leave the Alariss Global platform and hire your Alariss Global Business Development Professional directly to your company by bypassing Alariss Global, you may only opt out of the obligations in the previous non-disintermediation section if you pay Alariss Global a Conversion Fee. The Conversion Fee is described on the Alariss Terms of Use site here: www.alariss.com/terms.

    You agree that the Conversion Fee is 20% of the estimated earnings over a twelve (12) month period, which is calculated by taking the Hourly Rate (defined below) and multiplying it by 2,080. “Hourly Rate” means the highest of (a) the highest hourly rate charged by the Freelancer on any Service Contract, if any; (b) the highest hourly rate proposed by the Business Development Professional in any proposal, if any; or (c) the hourly rate in the Business Development Professional’s profile. To inquire about or pay the Conversion Fee, send an email message to [email protected]. You understand and agree that if Alariss determines, in its sole discretion, that you have violated our clauses on non-disintermediation, Alariss or its Affiliates may, to the maximum extent permitted by law (x) charge your Payment Method the Conversion Fee (including interest) if permitted by law or send you an invoice for the Conversion Fee (including interest), which you agree to pay within 30 days, (y) close your Account and revoke your authorization to use the Site and Site Services, and/or (z) charge you for all losses and costs (including any and all time of Alariss’s employees) and reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees.

    Entire Agreement

    These Terms shall supersede any subsequent terms or conditions included within this website. We intend that these Terms constitute the entire agreement between Alariss and you. Any changes to these Terms between Alariss and you must be in writing and signed by both parties.
