This Terms of Use Agreement (the “Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions that govern your use of and access to the Website and any products, materials, and services provided by or on the Website (collectively, the “Services”).

 

Please read these terms of use carefully before you start to use the site. By using Learnexus, you indicate that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to abide and be bound by them.

Information about Us

learnexus.com is a site operated by Learnexus (the “Company”, “We”, “us”, “our”). We are incorporated in the United States.

 

We are solely a marketplace allowing persons buying services from a Freelancer on Learnexus (the “Employers”) and persons selling services to an Employer via Learnexus (the “Freelancers”), to interact. While certain of our affiliates may do so, we do not search for, select or introduce Employers and Freelancers to each other. We are not an employment agency, or, except with respect to persons currently on our employee payroll, an employer, and we have not sought licensure as an employment agency.  Certain of our affiliates, operating distinct web properties which may be linked to on this Site, do act as employment agencies pursuant to appropriate regulatory authority issued by various governmental agencies, but this Site does not allow you to access these services.

 

Accessing Our Site

Access to our site is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw the service we provide on our site without notice (see below). We will not be liable if for any reason our site is unavailable at any time or for any period.

The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties and may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction by either party. The prevailing party in the arbitration proceedings shall be awarded reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert witness costs and expenses, and all other costs and expenses incurred directly or indirectly in connection with the proceedings, unless the arbitrator shall for good cause determine otherwise.

All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis.
