The Vendors agree not to hold the Company liable for payments that do not reach the Vendors because the Vendors have quoted incorrect payment information or the Payment Processors refused the payment for any other reason. The Payment Processors may collect personal data, which allows them to process the payments (e.g., name, PayPal credentials, credit card details, payment account information, or any other required personal data). The Payment Processors handle all steps in the payment process on their websites, including data collection and data processing. For the payment service agreements and policies, please refer to the website of the respective Payment Processor. The list of our Payment Processors may be modified by the Company at any time without notice.
3.9. Invoices. The invoices for the Fees paid, the Commission, and other fees charged by the Company are generated automatically and can be reviewed and downloaded through the Vendor Account. The Vendors are responsible for making sure that all information in respect to the Vendor Account is accurate and up-to-date so that the invoices could be generated correctly. The Company accepts no responsibility if the invoices are erroneous due to Vendor’s failure to comply with these Terms.
3.10. Transaction limits. To ensure the security of Workpin, the Company may impose transaction limits with regard to the value or number of transactions within a certain period of time. The Company will not be liable to the Vendor if a transaction is not approved when it exceeds the limit established by the Company.

15.1. Making payments through Workpin. The Vendor hereby acknowledges and agrees that (i) all payments for the Contracts must be accepted through Workpin only, (ii) Workpin must be used as Vendor’s exclusive method to request and receive payments, and (iii) Vendor’s violation of this section 15.1 is a material breach of these Terms and, therefore, the Vendor Account may be permanently suspended. The said obligation is valid at all times when the communication or transactions are carried out by and between the Vendors and the Clients during the term of the Contract and for a period of 12 months thereafter. By way of illustration, the Vendor is not allowed to:
i. Offer, solicit, accept any offers or solicitations, contract, hire, pay, receive payments, or invoice the Clients outside Workpin;
ii. Request or issue an invoice for an amount lower than the actual Fees; and
iii. Refer the Clients to third parties for making payments.
15.2. Not sharing contact details. The Vendors must use Workpin as a sole manner of communicating before entering the Contract. A violation of this section 15.2 is a material breach of these Terms and, therefore, the Vendor Account may be permanently suspended.
15.3. Damages. If a Vendor or Client breaches its obligations under this Non-Circumvention provision, the breaching party shall pay to Workpin an amount equal to 20% of the subtotal of the total fees (the “Liquidated Damages”) paid by the Clients to the respective Vendor. The parties intend that the Liquidated Damages amount will constitute compensation, and not a penalty. The parties also agree that the harm caused by such a breach would be impossible or very difficult to accurately estimate as of the date of this agreement, and that the Liquidated Damages are therefore a reasonable estimate of the anticipated or actual harm that might arise from such a breach. A Vendor or Client’s payment of the Liquidated Damages is his, her or its sole liability and entire obligation and Workpin’s exclusive remedy for any such breach.
16.1. Term and termination. The Terms enter into force on the date the Vendor accepts the Terms and remain in force until updated or terminated by the Company or until the Vendor stops using Workpin. The Company is entitled to terminate the Terms at any time, at its sole discretion, and with a prior notice to the Vendor.
16.2. Amendments. The Company reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time, effective upon posting of an updated version on Workpin. Such amendments may be necessary due to the changes in the requirements of laws, regulations, new features of Workpin, or Company’s business practices. The Company will send the Vendor a notification about any material amendments to the Terms that may be of importance to the Vendor. The Vendor is responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms. Vendor’s continued use of Workpin after any changes shall constitute Vendor’s consent to such changes. The Company also reserves the right to modify the services provided through Workpin at any time, at its sole discretion.
16.3. Breach of the Terms. If the Company has a reason to believe, at its sole discretion, that the Vendor violates these Terms and it is appropriate, necessary or desirable to do so, the Company may:
i. Send the Vendor a formal warning;
ii. Temporary suspend the Vendor Account;
iii. Delete the Vendor Account;
iv. Temporarily or permanently prohibit Vendor’s use of Workpin;
v. Report the Vendor to the relevant public authorities; or
vi. Commence a legal action against the Vendor.
16.4. Transfer of rights. The Vendor is not allowed to assign Vendor’s rights under these Terms. The Company is entitled to transfer its rights and obligations under these Terms entirely or partially to a third party by giving a prior notice to the Vendor. If the Vendor does not agree to the transfer, the only remedy is to terminate these Terms with immediate effect by deleting the Vendor Account and stopping to use Workpin.
16.5. Merger or acquisition. In the event the Company, during the term of these Terms, is acquired, merged, or sells all or substantially all of its assets, these Terms shall not automatically be terminated. Although the Company agrees to use its best efforts to ensure that the transferee or surviving company shall assume and be bound by the provisions of these Terms, the Company does not guarantee that the transferee or surviving company shall assume and be bound by the provisions of these Terms.
