4. Tasksauce Connects Task Runners and Task Senders
Tasksauce.com is a communications platform for enabling the connection between individuals seeking to obtain Task services ("Task Senders") and/or individuals seeking to provide Task services ("Task Runners"). Task Senders and Task Runners together are hereinafter referred to as "Users."
5. Tasksauce.com is Only a Venue
Tasksauce.com is a communications platform for enabling connections between Users. Tasksauce.com does not take part in the interaction between Users. Tasksauce.com does not have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any services provided by Users, nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Users. Tasksauce.com does not have control over the quality, timing or legality of services delivered by its Users. Tasksauce.com makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the Task running provided by Users identified through the Service whether in public, private, or offline interactions. Due to the nature of the Internet, Tasksauce.com cannot confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Tasksauce.com does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information on the Service.
Tasksauce does not guarantee anything concerning the Task Runners background, character, integrity, suitability, reliability or dependability. When interacting with other Users you should exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety and property, just as you would when interacting with other persons whom you don’t know. NEITHER TASKSAUCE.COM NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICE. Tasksauce.com AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE.
Users of the Service contract for services directly with other Users. Tasksauce.com will not be a party to any contracts for services. Tasksauce.com facilitates these contracts by supplying a medium for the exchange of money. Task Senders will prepay for the task they post and their money will be held in escrow. Final payment will be processed at the end of a completed Task transaction. Task Senders offer Task Runner fees for each Task run. Task Runners then bid for each task posted. The Task Sender is free to accept any bid they like. The Task Sender is not obliged to accept a Bid and doing so is at the Task Sender’s sole discretion. Where the Task Sender acting reasonably and in good faith at all times is unable to select a suitable Bid, the Task Sender shall not be under any obligation to do so. When a Task is marked as closed by the Task Sender, the agreed upon runner fee will be transferred to the Task Runner’s online account. When the Task is marked complete by the Task Runner, which is an optional action, the Task Sender will have 3 days before the Task is automatically marked complete in the system database and the Task Runner is paid the agreed upon runner fee.
Tasksauce.com is only a venue for connecting Users. Because Tasksauce is not involved in the actual contact between Users, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release Tasksauce (and our officers, directors, agents, investors, subsidiaries, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. Tasksauce expressly disclaims any liability that may arise between Users of its Service.

13. Billing and Payment Policy
Task Senders are obligated to pay for the services of the Service, unless specifically notified otherwise. Task Senders will pay runner fees online prior to that task being posted. These funds will then be held in escrow until the task is completed. In this final payment, Tasksauce will charge the Task Sender’s credit card or debit card according to the amount agreed upon between the Task Sender and the Task Runner for the use of the services of the Service, and you hereby authorize us to charge your credit card for such amounts. While Tasksauce will use reasonable commercial efforts to ensure the security of all credit cards and all other personal information, we expressly disclaim any liability for any damage that may result should any information be released to any third parties, and you agree to hold Tasksauce harmless for any damages that may result therefrom. Tasksauce will use third party services to process credit card information. For further information regarding that service, please contact Tasksauce to request information about Tasksauce’s credit card processing providers.
As a Task Sender, you agree to use the Tasksauce.com to make all payments to a Task Runner. You also agree not to take any action directly or indirectly to circumvent the Tasksauce Service Fee. As a Task Runner, you agree to use the Tasksauce.com to receive all payments from a Task Sender. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that a Task Sender is not obligated to pay any invoice to you unless you originated that invoice through the Tasksauce.com.
If a Task Sender does not use the Tasksauce.com to make all payments to a Task Runner as agreed above then the Task Sender agrees that it is liable and will pay to Tasksauce the greater of: (a) £1000, or (b) the amount of all Service Fees that Tasksauce would earn or would have earned on all payments, and in either case plus interest at the rate of 18% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, calculated from the date the Task Sender first makes payment to the Task Runner identified through Tasksauce.com, plus any reasonable expenses incurred (including legal fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees.
You agree not to circumvent the Tasksauce.com. Prohibited acts include (but are not limited to) the following:
i. Submitting Bids, proposals or soliciting Task Senders identified on the website to contact, hire, manage or pay outside the website.
ii. Accepting proposals from or soliciting Task Runner identified on the website to contact, deliver Task Running Services, invoice, or receive payment outside the website.
iii. Invoicing or reporting on the website an invoice or payment amount different than that agreed between Task Runner and Task Sender.
