The following term will be a part of every Service Contract and will supersede any different or contrary provisions in the Service Contract with capitalized terms having the meaning set forth in this Agreement: “The materials resulting from the performance of the IT Services and all copies thereof, including works in progress, in whatever media, whether arising before execution of this agreement or subs equent to execution of this agreement are the “Work.” Service Provider agrees that the development of the Work (but excluding Service Provider Tools) is “work made for hire” within the meaning of the Copyright Act of 1976, as amended from time to time, and that the Work shall be the sole property of Customer. “Service Provider Tools” means the materials, information, trade secrets, generic programming codes and segments, algorithms, methodologies, processes, tools, data, documents, notes, programming techniques, reusable objects, routines, formulae and templates that:
(a) are developed prior to the Work and utilized by Service Provider in connection with the Work;
(b) are designed to perform generalized functions not specific to the particular requirements of Customer or the Work;
(c)do not contain any information or items provided by Customer; and (d) cannot reasonably be expected to provide Customer an advantage over its competitors.
To the extent any Work performed by Service Provider does not qualify as a “work made for hire” under applicable law, Service Provider hereby irrevocably and unconditionally assigns to Customer, without further compensation, all of its right, title and interest in and to the Work and any and all related patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade names in the United States and elsewhere. This assignment is conditioned upon full payment of the compensation due to the Service Provider. To the extent any of Service Provider’s rights in the Work, including without limitation any moral rights, are not capable of assignment under applicable law, Service Provider hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives all enforcement of such rights to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law. Service Provider will assist Customer in obtaining and enforcing patent, copyright and other forms of legal protection for the Work in any country. Upon request, Service Provider will sign all applications, assignments, instruments and papers and perform all acts necessary or desired by Customer to assign the Work fully and completely to Customer and to enable Customer, its successors, assigns and nominees, to secure and enjoy the full and exclusive benefits and advantages of the Work at no charge to Customer; however, Customer shall reimburse Service Provider for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. Service Provider shall protect all Customer information, data, and Work using industry standard practices.”

13.1. Chargebacks and Reversed Payments:
In the event that a Customer successfully charges back a credit or debit card payment or reverses any other payment type, then Aumnics will reverse the payment within the Customer and Service Provider accounts and the IT Services would then be treated as unpaid. Unwarranted chargebacks or payment reversals initiated by Aumnics users are prohibited, will result in the suspension of your Aumnics account, and may result in Aumnics pursuing any and all options at its disposal to collect the withdrawn funds including, but not limited to, sending your unpaid account to a third-party collection agency. In the event that IT Services were not performed, all users must abide by the Aumnics cancellation policy.
The Aumnics cancellation process ensures the integrity of the feedback system and accuracy of any refund. There are situations where a chargeback may be warranted, such as when a user feels that their card or payment method has been charged fraudulently. Prior to any chargeback initiation, Aumnics must be notified by the cardholder so that Aumnics may investigate the claim to determine if a chargeback is appropriate. A chargeback may not be filed as a replacement, or an addition to, a cancellation of an Aumnics transaction. If an unwarranted chargeback of the Customer’s payment is initiated and accepted by the payment processor or other entity, Aumnics reserves the right to charge the Service Provider for any costs associated with the chargeback. If a chargeback is accepted, the Service Provider becomes responsible for that invoiceable amount.

Quotes Customers receive on the Platform are based on the price Service Providers submit which are required to be all-inclusive based on the information Customers provide in a Request; however, if the actual IT Services are materially different than specified by the Customer and result in changes, then Service Providers may invoice a different amount than the original quote, and the Customer shall be responsible for all additional costs incurred.Fees You are solely responsible for all transactions conducted through your account and for paying all fees incurred by any users of your account as well as all applicable taxes.

Should you have a dispute with one or more Aumnics users, You release Aumnics, its officers, directors, agents, advisors, attorneys, accountants, and employees from all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of any kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes and/or this User Agreement.

You hereby agree and acknowledge that any and all of Our Information is confidential and shall be our sole and exclusive intellectual property and proprietary information. You agree to use Our Information only for the specific purposes as allowed by the performance of this Agreement. Any disclosure of Our Information to a third party specifically including a direct competitor is strictly prohibited.

Specifically, You shall not knowingly, directly or indirectly, solicit or attempt to solicit, divert, and/or send marketing content to any Aumnics user in which you initially met through Aumnics.
35. Unsolicited Idea Submission.
We always want to receive messages and feedback from Aumnics users and welcome any comments regarding the Aumnics marketplace. However, Aumnics policy does not allow us to accept or consider ideas, suggestions, or proposals other than those we specifically request. The intent of this policy is to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when new functionality and features developed internally by Aumnics might be similar or even identical to your idea.
If You do send Aumnics an unsolicited suggestion, idea, or proposal, or if You send, at the request of Aumnics, a comment or suggestion to improve the Aumnics Marketplace (for example, through discussion boards or via email) (collectively, the “Submission”), Aumnics will consider the Submission to be non-confidential and non-proprietary.
Aumnics shall have no obligations concerning the Submission, contractual or otherwise (including, but not limited to, an obligation to keep the Submission confidential), and shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submission. Aumnics shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submission for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to you.
If You use the Aumnics Services in violation of this agreement, we are authorized to take action against you as a user and/or take action against your Aumnics account which may include, but is not limited to, the immediate removal of your Requests, Quotes, and/or profile, notifying our users of your actions, issuing a warning, temporarily suspending your user status, terminating your user status, and/or refusing to provide the Aumnics Services to You in the future.

40. Arbitration and Waiver of Class Actions.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT IS AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF.

award may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof.
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS SECTION MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CLIENT OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CLIENT OR USER.

Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, You agree that no right, property, license, permission, or interest of any kind in or to the Marks is or is intended to be given or transferred to or acquired by You pursuant to the execution, performance or non-performance of this Agreement or any part thereof. You shall in no way contest or deny the validity of, our right of title to or license of use for, the Marks, and You shall not encourage or assist others directly or indirectly to do so, during the lifetime of this Agreement and thereafter. You shall not utilize the Marks in any manner that would diminish their value or harm their reputation.
