    Though as Client you may can call the Token Holder Tribunal to resolve the dispute. In this case both Freelancer and Client are required to accept the outcome either way.

    Depending on their jurisdiction, Sellers and Buyers may have rights under statutory warranties that cannot lawfully be excluded. Nothing in this User Agreement is intended to override a right that by applicable law may not be excluded. Nothing in this User Agreement is intended to violate any laws relating to unfair contracts, and this agreement has been specifically redrafted to ensure compliance with unfair contracts legislation. To the extent that any component of this User Agreement is in conflict with inalienable rights under local laws, all parties intend for this agreement to be read down only insofar as to be in compliance with such local laws and no further.

    Each User acknowledges and agrees that the relationship between Client and Freelancer is that of an independent contractor. Nothing in this User Agreement creates a partnership, joint venture, agency or employment relationship between Users. Nothing in this User Agreement shall in any way be construed as forming a joint venture, partnership or an employer-employee relationship between the Freelancer and any User.

  39. Limits & Fraud Prevention

  40. We reserve the right to suspend a User withdrawal request if the source of the funds is suspected to be fraudulent.

    If we become aware that any funds received into an Account from another Account as a result of a fraudulent transaction, this will be reversed immediately. If those funds have already been released to you, you must pay the funds into your Account. If you do not do so, we may suspend, limit or cancel your account, or take action against you to recover those funds.

    We may, in our sole discretion, place a limit on any or all of the funds in your Account (thereby preventing any use of the funds) if:

    1. we believe that the beneficiary of the payment is someone other than you;
    2. we are required to do so by law or applicable law enforcement agencies.
    3. we believe there may be an unacceptable level of risk associated with you, your Account, or any or all of your transactions, including if we believe that there is a risk that such funds will be subject to reversal or chargeback;
    4. we believe that the payment is being made to a country where we do not offer our Service; or

    If you are involved in a dispute, we may (in certain circumstances) place a temporary limit on the funds in your Account to cover the amount of any potential liability. If the dispute is resolved in your favour, we will lift the limit on your funds and those funds may be released to you. If the dispute is not resolved in your favour, we may remove the funds from your Account. We may also place a limit on your account in circumstances where we suspect you of fraudulent or other unacceptable behaviour, while we investigate any such matter.

  53. Calculating Token Holder Tribunal Votes

  54. The Tokenholder Tribunal is open for a certain period of time (~ 3 days) and the participating Tokenholders are also able to change their decision while the tribunal is ongoing. During this period, the tally is not visible to the participating Tokenholders.

    The Tokenholders can vote either in favor of the client or the freelancer. After this period, the tally becomes visible to everyone and the final decision is made public.

    The settlement is done by majority vote. If the Tokenholder belongs to the majority, his vote is counted as a “positive vote”, whereas if the Tokenholder belongs to the minority, his vote is counted as a “negative vote”.

  55. Calculation of the distributed Fees

  56. After every dispute, each Tokenholder who participated in the solution of the dispute receives a vote share. The vote share is higher, the less Tokenholders take part in the dispute. Should the Tokenholders vote be counted as a “negative vote”, he loses double the vote share of the respective dispute.

  57. Expert Tribunal

  58. Should the client or the freelancer not be satisfied with the decision of the Tokenholder Tribunal, there is also the possibility to contact the support in order to activate an Expert Tribunal. The fee for activating the Expert Tribunal is about 500 USD in ETH. We keep the right to change this amount depending on the dispute. We might also initiate an Expert Tribunal at our own discretion.

     The decision of the Expert Tribunal overrules the decision of the Tokenholder Tribunal. This means that if the Expert Tribunal comes to a different conclusion than the Tokenholder Tribunal, the decision of the Expert Tribunal will be applied to the case.

  59. Tokenholder Tribunal Decisions

  60. We do not take any responsibility for the damages that occur for your because of a Tokenholder Tribunal Decision. You acknowledge and agree that you will adhere to the Tokenholder Tribunal Decision and that you will not take any legal steps against us for any decisions which are not in your favor or which resulted in a loss of any kind for you.

  61. Incentive to vote in the Token Holder Tribunal

  62. After a dispute cycle of approximately 1 – 6 months, we will distribute the ETH earned by the Token Holder Tribunal to everyone who holds vote shares, on the condition that the amount of LNC held never reached zero throughout the whole dispute cycle. The final amount distributed to those that helped voting in the Token Holder Tribunal depends on different factors, such as the amount of fees raised.

    The sent out ETH is distributed equally between the Token Holders who voted in the Token Holder Tribunal based on their vote shares.

  63. Identity / Know Your Customer

  64. You authorise us, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity. You must, at our request: (1) provide further information to us, which may include your date of birth and or other information that will allow us to reasonably identify you; (2) take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial instruments; or (3) verify your information against third party databases or through other sources.

    You must also, at our request, provide copies of identification documents (such as your passport or drivers' licence). We may also ask you to provide photographic identification holding a sign with a code that we provide as an additional identity verification step.

Upon submitting a dispute, the freelancer and the client have the option to provide documentation in support of their claim or position in relation to the dispute via the included chat. You also acknowledge that the Token Holder Tribunal is not a judicial or alternative dispute resolution institution and the Token Holder will make the determinations only as ordinary reasonable people. In addition, we do not warrant that the documents/text provided by the parties to the dispute will be true, complete or correct and you agree to indemnify and (to the maximum extent permitted by law) hold Blocklancer and any of our affiliates harmless against any damages or liability you may suffer as a result of any documentation or material subsequently being found to be false or misleading.
