4. PURPOSE OF THE SITE
The Site provides a hosted online chat solution through a Subscription plan and a marketplace where Clients and Agents can identify each other, and buy and sell Agent Services online. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Crowdio and/or its affiliates and/or its or their respective successors provides the Site Services to Clients and Agents, including hosting and maintaining the Site, enabling the buying and selling of Agent services, and coordinating disputes related to those Agent Services.
5. PAYMENT TERMS
5.1. SUBSCRIPTION PLANS
When a Client buys a Subscription plan an automatic billing cycle is created for the Client, which will charge the fee for the chosen Subscription plan on a recurring basis. We will draw the Subscription Plan fee every month on the same day you signed up from the credit card you signed up with. If the credit card is no longer valid, and we are not able to complete a payment, your service will stop.
5.2 AGENT SERVICES
When a Client subscribes for Agent Services, a monthly budget (the “Budget”) should first be deposited on the Account. The monthly budget amount will be used to pay for Agent Services. We will draw the Budget amount (or the difference from your current balance up to your Budget) every month on the same day you signed up from the credit card you used on your first deposit. You can change the Budget at any time you like and we will draw that amount on the next deposit. When the balance on the Account does not exceed one chat and one lead left, an Automatic Refill Service (“ARS”) will be triggered. For ARS, we will draw the chosen refill amount to secure no interruptions in Agent Services. You can change the ARS amount at any time you like and we will draw that amount, if your Account needs to be topped up before next regular deposit.
If your credit card is no longer valid, and we are not able to complete a payment, your service will stop until you refill your account using a new credit card.
You can cancel the Agent Services at any time.
5.3. NO FEE FOR INTRODUCING OR FOR FINDING JOBS
Crowdio does not introduce Clients to Agents and does not help Agents secure Jobs. Crowdio merely makes the Site available to enable Clients and Agents to do so themselves. Therefore, Crowdio does not charge a fee when an Agent finds a suitable Client or finds a Job. However, Client and an Agent are obligated to use the Site to pay and receive payment for their work together, if they identified each other through the Site.
5.4. DISBURSEMENTS TO AGENTS
When a Client pays an Agent, Crowdio will then deduct a service commission that Crowdio earns and the Client and Agent agree to pay Crowdio for creating, hosting, maintaining, and providing the Site. The funds that are payable to the Agent for the Job (“Agent Earnings”) are automatically recorded in the Agent wallet on the Site. The Earnings are available for withdrawal after a security period. The security period begins after the Earning is recorded in the wallet of the Agent. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, and except as prohibited by applicable law, if we determine in our sole discretion that you have violated the conditions and restrictions of the Site or this Agreement, Crowdio may hold the disbursement of the Agent Earnings. Additionally, Crowdio may also hold the disbursement of the Agent Earnings if: (a) we require additional information, such as Agent’s tax information, government-issued identification, address, or date of birth; (b) we have reason to believe the Agent Earnings may be subject to chargeback; (c) we suspect fraud; (d) we believe there are reasonable grounds for insecurity with respect to the performance of obligations under this Agreement, or other Terms and Conditions; (e) we deem necessary in connection with any investigation; or (f) required by applicable law. In cases of fraud, abuse, or violation of this Agreement, Crowdio reserves the right to revoke any payments. In addition, we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you, and you will reimburse us, if we suspect fraud or criminal activity associated with your payment, withdrawal, or Job; or if we have supplied our services in accordance with this Agreement yet we receive any chargeback from the Payment Method used by you.
5.5. FORMAL INVOICES AND TAXES
Crowdio will have no responsibility for determining the necessity of or for issuing any formal invoices, or for determining, remitting, or withholding any taxes applicable to Agent Earnings. Agent will also be solely responsible for determining whether: (a) Agent or Crowdio is required by applicable law to remit to the appropriate authorities any taxes or similar charges applicable to the Agent Earnings and remitting any such taxes or charges to the appropriate authorities on behalf of itself or Crowdio, as appropriate; and (b) Crowdio is required by applicable law to withhold any amount of the Agent Earnings and for notifying Crowdio of any such requirement and indemnifying Crowdio (either by Crowdio, at our sole discretion, offsetting the relevant amount against a future payment of Agent Earnings to Agent or Agent reimbursing Crowdio for the applicable amount) for any requirement to pay any withholding amount to the appropriate authorities (including penalties and interest). In the event of an audit of Crowdio, Agent agrees to promptly cooperate with Crowdio and provide copies of Agent’s tax returns and other documents as may be reasonably requested for purposes of such audit.
5.6. PAYMENT METHODS
In order to use certain Site Services, Client and Agent must provide account information for a valid Payment Method. The Site makes credit cards – Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and Dankort (only in Denmark), PayPal and bank accounts in some cases as available methods of payment.
Client hereby authorizes Crowdio to charge Client’s credit card (or any other Payment Method). Credit cards and, if applicable, bank accounts will be charged by Epay A/S and/or any of Epay A/S’ affiliates and/or successors. By providing Payment Method information through the Site, Client or Agent represents, warrants, and covenants that: (a) Client or Agent is legally authorized to provide such information to us; (b) Client or Agent is legally authorized to perform payments using the Payment Method(s); and (c) such action does not violate the terms and conditions applicable to Client or Agent’s use of such Payment Method(s) or applicable law. When Client authorizes a payment using a Payment Method via the Site, Client represents, warrants, and covenants that there are sufficient funds or credit available to complete the payment using the designated Payment Method. To the extent that any amounts owed under this Agreement cannot be collected from Client’s Payment Method(s), Client is solely responsible for paying such amounts by other means.

The Site operates in DK CROWNS. The Site may display foreign currency conversion rates for illustration purposes only.
6. RIGHTS TO CLIENT MATERIALS
“Client Materials” means training materials, generated chat conversations and sales leads, intellectual property, and any other information or materials that Client provides to Agent for Agent to perform Agent Services.
Client grants Agent a limited, non-exclusive, revocable (at any time, at Client’s sole discretion) right to use the Client Materials as necessary solely for the performance of the Agent Services. Client reserves all other rights and interest, including, without limitation, all Intellectual Property Rights, in and to the Client Materials. All Client Materials will be the sole and exclusive property of Client, and the Agent hereby automatically irrevocably assigns to Client all right, title and interest worldwide in and to such Client Materials.

Crowdio does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control Agent or Agent’s work. Crowdio does not provide the premises at which the Agent will perform the work. Crowdio makes no representations about, and does not guarantee the quality, safety, or legality of, the Agent Services; the qualifications, background, or identities of Users; the ability of Agents to deliver the Agent Services.

14. AGREEMENT TERM AND TERMINATION
This Agreement, as amended from time to time, will become effective on the Effective Date or your first visit to the Site and will remain in effect for the duration of your use of the Site. Unless both you and Crowdio expressly agree otherwise in writing, either of us may terminate this Agreement in our sole discretion, at any time, without explanation, upon written notice to the other. You may provide written notice to email@example.com or through the in-site chat. In the event you properly terminate this Agreement, your right to use the Site is automatically revoked, and your Account will be closed, and any available credit on your Account will be refunded.
Without limiting Crowdio’s other rights or remedies, we may temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend, or permanently revoke your access to the Site and refuse to provide any services to you if: (i) you breach the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement or other parts of the Terms and Conditions; (ii) we suspect or become aware that you have provided false or misleading information to us; or (iii) we believe, in our sole discretion, that your actions may cause legal liability for you, our Users, or Crowdio; may be contrary to the interests of the Site or the User community; or may involve illicit activity. If your Account is suspended or closed, you may not use the Site under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without Crowdio’s prior written consent. If you attempt to use the Site under a different Account, we reserve the right to reclaim available funds in that Account and/or use an available Payment Method to pay for any amounts owed by you to the extent permitted by applicable law. Without limiting Crowdio’s other rights or remedies, if you engage in actions or activities that circumvent the Site or otherwise reduce fees owed to Crowdio under this Agreement, you must pay Crowdio for all fees owed to Crowdio and reimburse Crowdio for all losses and costs (including any and all time of Crowdio’s employees) and reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees. In addition, violations of this Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions. If your Account is closed for any reason, you will no longer have access to chat history, and other material you keep on the Site. If practicable or required by law, Crowdio will retain this information for a period of up to five years from the date of closure. However, you understand that any closure of your Account may involve deletion of any content stored in your Account for which Crowdio will have no liability whatsoever.
15. CONSEQUENCES OF AGREEMENT TERMINATION
Termination of this Agreement and/or closing of your Account will not relieve Client of the requirement to pay for Agent Services performed prior to the effective date of the termination, which fees and expenses, together with any applicable taxes, Client hereby authorizes Crowdio to charge to its Payment Method pursuant to Section 5 (Payment Terms).
Except as otherwise required by applicable law, we will notify you if we close your Account, unless we believe, in our sole judgment, that giving notice may cause damage. You acknowledge and agree that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site depend on transparency of User’s Account status to all Users. You therefore agree as follows: IF CROWDIO DECIDES TO SUSPEND OR CLOSE YOUR ACCOUNT, CROWDIO HAS THE RIGHT BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION TO: (A) NOTIFY OTHER USERS OF YOUR SUSPENDED OR CLOSED ACCOUNT STATUS, AND (B) PROVIDE THOSE USERS WITH A SUMMARY OF THE REASONS FOR YOUR ACCOUNT SUSPENSION OR CLOSURE.
After this Agreement terminates, the terms of this Agreement that expressly or by their nature contemplate performance after the Agreement terminates or expires will survive and continue in full force and effect. For example, the provisions protecting Confidential Information, requiring arbitration, permitting audits, protecting intellectual property, requiring non-circumvention, indemnification, payment of fees, reimbursement and setting forth limitations of liability each, by their nature, contemplate performance or observance after this Agreement terminates.
17. DISPUTE PROCESS AND SCOPE
If a dispute arises between you and Crowdio, our goal is to resolve the dispute quickly and cost-effectively. Accordingly, you agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy that arises out of or relates to this Agreement, your relationship with Crowdio (including any claimed employment with Crowdio), the termination of your relationship with Crowdio, or the Site (each, a “Claim”) in accordance with this Section. For the avoidance of doubt, Claims include, but are not limited to, all claims, disputes, or controversies arising out of or relating to the Terms and Conditions, any payments or monies you claim are due to you from Crowdio, privacy, compensation, termination, discrimination or harassment.
This Agreement and any Claim will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Denmark.
Before serving a demand for arbitration of a Claim, you agree to first notify Crowdio of the Claim at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the in-site chat, and Crowdio agrees to provide to you a notice at your email address on file (in each case, a “Notice”) and seek informal resolution of the Claim. Both you and Crowdio will have 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the other party’s Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.
18.1. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
This Agreement, together with the other Terms and Conditions, sets forth the entire agreement and understanding between you and Crowdio relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and cancels and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous discussions, agreements, representations, warranties, and other communications between you and us, written or oral, to the extent they relate in any way to the subject matter hereof and thereof.

User may not assign this Agreement, or any of its rights or obligations hereunder, without Crowdio’s prior written consent in the form of a written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of Crowdio. Crowdio may freely assign this Agreement without User’s consent. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this subsection will be null and void. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, this Agreement will inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the parties.
If and to the extent any provision of this Agreement is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law, such provision or such portion thereof will be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability and will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties. The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of such provision in that jurisdiction will not in any way affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or of any other provision in any jurisdiction.
18.7. FORCE MAJEURE
The parties to this Agreement will not be responsible for the failure to perform or any delay in performance of any obligation hereunder due to labor disturbances, accidents, fires, floods, telecommunications or Internet failures, strikes, wars, riots, rebellions, blockades, acts of government, governmental requirements and regulations or restrictions imposed by law or any other similar conditions beyond the reasonable control of such party. The time for performance of such party will be extended by the period of such delay. Irrespective of any extension of time, if an event of Force Majeure occurs and its effect continues for a period of 60 days, either the party may give to the other a 30-day notice of termination. If, at the end of the 30 day period, the effect of the Force Majeure continues, the Agreement will terminate.
