14.6 Obligation to Use the Site for Payment Processing
Business and Professional are obligated to use the Site to pay and receive payment for Professional Services if they identified each other through the Site, as detailed in the "Exclusivity and Non-Circumvention," section (section 15) below.
If a Business fails to pay a Professional’s Fees or any other amounts due under their Agreement, whether by cancelling Business’ credit or debit card, initiating an improper chargeback, or any other means, Mary’s List may suspend or terminate Business' Account, the processing of any additional payments, and any Professional Services in progress. Without limiting other available remedies, a Business must pay Mary’s List upon demand for amounts owed under this Agreement, plus interest on the outstanding amount at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum interest allowed by applicable law, plus attorneys' fees and other costs of collection to the extent permitted by applicable law. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Mary’s List, at our discretion, may set off amounts due against other amounts received from or held by Mary’s List, make appropriate reports to credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities, and cooperate with credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities in any resulting investigation or prosecution.
14.8 No Return / Partial Refund of Funds
Business acknowledges and agrees that Mary’s List will charge Business’ designated Payment Method for the Professional Fees for Fixed-Price Contracts, upon Professional’s acceptance of the Professional Services. Therefore, and in consideration of the Site Services provided by Mary’s List and the services provided by our payment processors, Business agrees that once Mary’s List charges Business' designated Payment Method for the Professional Fees as provided in these Terms of Service, the charge is non-refundable, except as otherwise required by applicable law or the Professional terminates the Service Contract. Business therefore agrees not to ask its credit card company, bank, or other Payment Method provider to charge back any Professional Fees or other Fees charged pursuant to these Terms of Service for any reason. A chargeback in breach of the foregoing obligation is a material breach of these Terms of Service. If Business initiates a chargeback in violation of these Terms of Service, Business agrees that Mary’s List will be entitled to the full amount that has been improperly charged back plus interest on the outstanding amount at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum interest allowed by applicable law, plus attorneys' fees and other costs of collection to the extent permitted by applicable law. It is hereby clarified that only in the event the Professional terminates the Service Contract before completing the Project, the Business will be entitled to a refund a pro-rata share of Professional’s Fees which will include, but not limited to, fees for the portion of the work done and Mary’s List’s service fees.
14.9 Payment Methods
In order to use certain Site Services, Business must provide account information for at least one valid Payment Method.
Business hereby authorizes Mary’s List to run necessary authorizations on the Payment Method provided by Business, to store such details as Business’ method of payment for Services, and to charge such Payment Method in accordance with the terms of these Terms of Service.
By providing Payment Method information through the Site, Business represents, warrants, and covenants that: (a) Business is legally authorized to provide such information to us; (b) Business is legally authorized to perform payments using the Payment Method(s); and (c) such action does not violate the terms and conditions applicable to Business’ use of such Payment Method(s) or applicable law. When Business authorizes a payment using a Payment Method via the Site, Business 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 these Terms of Service cannot be collected from Business’ Payment Method(s), Business is solely responsible for paying such amounts by other means. We reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you, and you will reimburse us, if we discover erroneous or duplicate transactions or we receive a chargeback from your Payment Method for any reason. You agree that we have the right to obtain such reimbursement by deducting amounts from future payments or withdrawals, charging your Payment Method(s), or obtaining reimbursement from you by any other lawful means. Without limiting any of our other rights or remedies, we may also charge interest and/or terminate your Account immediately upon your failure to reimburse us for chargebacks or other amounts owed under these Terms of Service.
15. Exclusivity and Non-Circumvention
Users acknowledge and agree that a substantial portion of the compensation Mary’s List receives for making the Site available is collected as a deduction of the Service Fee described in the previous subsection titled "Service Fee." Mary’s List only deducts this Service Fee when a Business pays and a Professional receives payment through the Site. Therefore, for 24 months from the time Users identify or are identified by any party through the Site (the "Exclusivity Period"), Users must use the Site as their exclusive method to request, make, and receive all payments for work directly or indirectly with that party or arising out of their relationship with that party (the "Mary’s List Relationship")
Users agree not to circumvent the Payment Methods offered by the Site. By way of illustration and not in limitation of the foregoing, Users must not:
- i. Submit proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, hire, manage, or pay outside the Site.
- ii. Accept proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, deliver services, invoice, or receive payment outside the Site.
- iii. Invoice or report on the Site an amount lower than that actually agreed between Business and Professional.
- You agree to notify Mary’s List immediately if another person improperly contacts you or suggests making or receiving payments outside of the Site.

NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY OF ANY KIND, NEITHER MARY’S LIST NOR ANY OF OUR REPRESENTATIVES, NOR THEIR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONSULTANTS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES, ARE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES OR LIABILITIES UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY MANNER TO THE SITE, INFORMATION, SERVICES AND/OR ANY LINKED SITE, WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LIABILITIES.

20. Indemnity and Release of Claims
You agree to fully indemnify, defend and hold Mary List, any of our representatives, and their directors, officers, employees, consultants and other representatives, harmless from and against any and all claims, suits, proceedings, actions, and demands, including without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, alleging or resulting from: (a) any User Content or other material you provide, (b) your use of any of Our Content, and other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from (i) your breach of these Terms, (ii) any allegation that any User Content you transmit to the Site infringes or otherwise violates the copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property or other rights of any third party, and/or (iii) your activities in connection with the Site (collectively, the “Claims”). Mary’s List shall provide notice to you promptly of any such Claim and shall have sole control of the defense and of all negotiations for settlement of any Claim; and (c) you shall cooperate with Mary’s List in the defense or settlement of any such Claim at your expense.
You hereby release and forever discharge Mary’s List (and its owners, directors, managers, officers, shareholders, employees, independent contractors and agents and successors and assigns of itself or its affiliates, and Our Representatives) from, and hereby waive and relinquish your rights with respect to, each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or relates directly or indirectly to: (i) any dispute you have with Businesses, other Professionals, or any other third party, whether it be at law or in equity that exist as of the time you agree to these Terms, (ii) any interactions with, or act or omission of, our Site or Services, and (iii) any liability suffered as a result of the use of any of the foregoing, due to any cause whatsoever, including negligence or breach of contract on the part of us in the design of our Site or Services.

If you are a California resident or resident of a state with a similar applicable law, you hereby waive California civil code section 1542 in connection with the foregoing (or such other similar applicable law in your state), which states: “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
21. Force Majeure
None of Mary’s List or our representatives are or will be liable for any losses caused directly or indirectly as a result of causes or events beyond the control of us, including natural disasters, acts of God, war, terrorism actions, DNNEC attacks, or decrees of governmental bodies, exchange of market rulings, failure of the Internet, communication lines or utility systems, equipment and systems failures, unauthorized access, and theft (each, a “Force Majeure Event”). All of the obligations of Mary’s List and Our Representatives with respect to the effected elements under these Terms will be suspended for the duration of such Force Majeure Event.
22. Dispute Resolution
22.1 Informal Dispute Resolution. If you have any issues or problems concerning the Site, and/or the Services, we encourage you to notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can attempt to resolve your issue. Most issues or problems can be resolved quickly and amicably. However, in the event that you or Mary’s List or Our Representatives are unable to come to an amicable resolution within fifteen (15) calendar days of your submission, you or Mary’s List or our Representatives may bring a formal arbitration proceeding.
22.2 Formal Dispute Resolution: Binding Arbitration. Except for Section 22.7, you agree that any and all disputes will be submitted to and finally determined by arbitration as set forth in Sections 22.3-22.7 below. In such case, you would incur additional expense in connection with such arbitration. The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding and neither Mary’s List and Our Representatives nor you will have the right to appeal such decision, whether in a court or in another arbitration proceeding. You understand that, by agreeing to arbitrate disputes as provided in these Terms, you, Mary’s List, and Our Representatives are waiving any and all statutory and other rights that we may have to a trial by jury in connection with any such dispute, claim or controversy. You may decline this agreement to arbitrate by e-mailing us at email@example.com within thirty (30) days of first accepting these Terms. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section and Sections 22.3-22.6; 22.8-22.9 and subject to Section 22, each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of the party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you, Mary’s List, and Our Representatives are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class user in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless you, Mary’s’ List, and/or Our Representatives agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
22.3 Arbitration Procedures. If either you or us desire to initiate arbitration a written Demand for Arbitration must be provided to the other party as specified in the American Arbitration Association “AAA” Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer_Demand_for_Arbitration_Form_0.pdf). The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of New York and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If we are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitration will be administered by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/active-rules or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section. The arbitration will be conducted by one impartial arbitrator (who may be a former judge, practicing attorney or person who is not an attorney), selected by mutual agreement or, if you and Mary’s List cannot agree, the arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the AAA Rules.
22.4 Arbitration Process and Applicable Law. Unless you and Mary’s List otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in New York, New York by one arbitrator. If your claim does not exceed $25,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Mary’s List submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $25,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. The arbitrator will not award punitive damages to either party and you and Mary’s List will each be deemed to have waived any right to such damages. The arbitrator will, in rendering his or her decision, apply the substantive law of the State of New York (excluding its choice of law rules that would require the application of the laws of another jurisdiction). The award of the arbitrator will be rendered within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. It will include a written explanation of his or her decision and specify the basis for any damages, which may include the costs and expenses of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above (Section 16) as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. The written decision of the arbitrator will be final, binding and non-appealable and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.
22.5 Arbitration Fees. Except for the limitations on the fees on claims as set forth in Section 22.4 above, your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. If your claim for damages is less than $75,000, however, Mary’s List will pay all such fees on claims unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
22.6 Confidentiality. The arbitration proceeding will be confidential. The existence of any matter submitted to arbitration, and the award, will be kept in confidence by you, Mary’s List, and the arbitrator, except as required in connection with the enforcement of such award or as otherwise required by applicable law.
22.7 Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Notwithstanding Sections 22.3-22.6 and subject to Section 21, either you or Mary’s List may (a) bring a lawsuit solely for intellectual property infringement in federal court in New York, New York without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above, (b) assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in New York, New York or any United States county where you live or work, or (c) bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Site and/or the Services without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
22.8 No Class Actions. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
22.9 Venue for Other Types of Disputes. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Mary’s List agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of New York County, New York. Both you and Mary’s List consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
