1. Engagement/Independent Contractor.
Mentored hereby engages You to render, as an independent contractor, certain online Tutoring Services to Students accessing the Directory and associated Mentored educational platform (“Platform”) during the Term (as defined below). You accept this engagement pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein, and hereby certify that You are legally eligible to work in the United States of America. Tutor shall devote such time, attention and energy to the Tutoring Services described herein as is required. However, Tutor shall not be precluded from engaging in any other business activity during the Term, whether or not such business activity is pursued for gain, profit or other pecuniary advantage. As an independent contractor, Tutor shall have the sole and complete direction over the manner of performance of the Tutoring Services and the method and manner of obtaining Mentored’s desired results, subject to Mentored’s general satisfaction as to the manner of performance and conduct of Tutor and the other provisions of this Agreement. For purposes of clarity, Mentored shall have no liability or responsibility for the acts or omissions of Tutor in the performance of the Tutoring Services or any other activities of Tutor. Tutor will not be considered for any purpose, under this Agreement or otherwise, an employee of Mentored. Tutor shall not be entitled to receive any of the benefits which employees of Mentored may be accorded by reason of employment (by way of example only, medical coverage, life insurance, retirement benefits, and the like). Mentored shall have no obligation to withhold or pay any income taxes, social security taxes, unemployment taxes, or similar obligations with respect to its independent contractor relationship with Tutor. Tutor shall be responsible for the payment of any and all taxes and the satisfaction of all governmental (whether local, state or federal) obligations which may arise by virtue of any payments made by Mentored to Tutor under this Agreement. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, if a competent government authority should assert that Mentored is responsible for making any source deductions or other payments on monies paid to Tutor, then Mentored shall be entitled to start making such source deductions and unless the parties agree otherwise at that time, to deduct an amount equal to any source deduction or retroactive assessment, together with any costs, penalties and expenses (including legal fees and costs) incurred by Mentored related to such assertions or deductions, from any amounts then payable by Mentored to Tutor under this Agreement. Tutor hereby agrees to indemnify Mentored, its directors, officers and employees, for any such amounts that are not recovered by Mentored by way of set-off as described above, within thirty (30) days after she/he receives a written demand for these amounts from Mentored.
This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and shall continue until terminated by either party as set forth herein (the “Term”). Mentored may terminate this Agreement at any time, and for any reason, in its sole discretion by written notice (with e-mail considered sufficient written notice) to You. Tutor may cancel her/his Mentored account (“Account”) at any time by following the instructions set forth on the Site and/or e-mailing Mentored at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not refund Monthly Fees (as defined below) paid prior to the termination date and Tutor will remain liable for any unpaid charges previously billed to that Tutor’s Payment Method (as defined below).
3. Platform Fees.
Upon completing the applicable registration form associated with Your registration as a Tutor and providing information pertaining to the credit card, or other payment method (where available,) that You would like to use to pay for Your access to the Platform as a Tutor (“Payment Method”), Your Payment Method will be charged the applicable monthly amount on a periodic, recurring basis every month that Your Account remains open (“Monthly Fee”). You acknowledge and agree that Mentored will not obtain any additional authorization from You for these recurring Monthly Fee payments. Every time that You use the Site, Platform or other Mentored offerings, You re-affirm that Mentored is authorized to bill to Your Payment Method account and to have the Monthly Fees applied to same. ALL CHARGES ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE. You are responsible for paying any sales, use or other taxes related to Your use of the Platform and payment of Monthly Fees hereunder.
The Monthly Fees will appear on Your Payment Method statement through the identifier “Mentored / Paypal”. All prices provided by Mentored are quoted in U.S. Dollars, are payable in U.S. Dollars and are valid and effective only in the United States. Failure to use the Platform and/or Site does not constitute a basis for refusing to pay any of the associated Monthly Fees. Subject to the conditions set forth herein, You agree to be bound by the billing and pricing provisions of Mentored in effect at any given time. Upon reasonable prior written notice to You (with e-mail sufficing), Mentored reserves the right to change its billing and pricing provisions whenever necessary, in its sole discretion. Continued use of the Platform after receipt of such notice shall constitute consent to any and all such changes; provided, however, that any amendment or modification to the billing and pricing provisions shall not apply to any charges incurred prior to the applicable amendment or modification.
Mentored’s authorization to provide and bill for access to its Platform, and the associated ability to post Listings to the Directory, is obtained by way of Your electronic signature or, where applicable, via physical signature and/or voice affirmation. Once an electronic signature is submitted, this electronic order constitutes an electronic letter of agency.
Upon registering to become a Tutor on the Platform, Mentored may permit You to access the Platform in order to provide Tutoring Services to Students on a trial basis prior to Your payment of the Monthly Fee (as defined below) (“Trial Period”). The Trial Period will commence when You have submitted all of the requisite registration forms, completed the background check process, performed any other actions required by Mentored and scheduled time to provide Tutoring Services in connection with the Platform (the “Start Date”). However, in order to receive payment for any time that You have spent providing Tutoring Services to Students via the Platform during the Trial Period, You must “activate” Your account by paying the Monthly Fee within two (2) weeks of the Start Date. Once the Monthly Fee has been paid, You will be eligible to receive payment for all the time spent by You providing Tutoring Services during the Trail Period, and through the remainder of the month. If You do not pay the Monthly Fee within two (2) weeks of the Start Date, Mentored may suspend Your account and withhold any payment for time that You spent providing Tutoring Services during the Trial Period, until Your Monthly Fee has been paid. If, after ninety (90) days, You have not activated Your account by paying the Monthly Fee, all payments associated with the time spent providing Tutoring Services during the Trail Period will be forfeited.
