YOU MAY NOT USE OUR SERVICES IF YOU ARE NOT OF LEGAL AGE TO FORM A BINDING CONTRACT. PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS. THESE INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, VARIOUS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS, AND INDEMNITIES.
Service Request – A User may use the Service by logging into the Platform and selecting a Service from the SydeWyrk list of available Services, or building a Custom Job. (a “Request”) The SydeWyrk Platform will specify the price for the Service selected based off job type and size, unless the User builds a custom job, in which the User will specify the price. Once the User selects the Service they will be able to specify specific details including the time frame for completion. The User will also be required to add two photos of the Services to be performed. When making a Service Request the User shall specify a time frame when they want the Service to be performed from our available time frame selection tool. This time frame is used a general guideline for the job and SydeWyrk is not responsible for ensuring these time frames are followed. Our method of allowing how a user chooses the time frame may change at any time without notice. Once a User has submitted a Request, the Users job will be placed into the marketplace. As SydeWyrkers request to be hired, a User will have the opportunity to review the SydeWyrkers profiles and have the option to “accept hire” or “reject hire” of that SydeWyrker presented. If the User rejects the SydeWyrker, then the job will remain open for other SydeWyrker to request hire until a SydeWyrker is hired by the User. When a SydeWyrker has been “hired” by the User and a SydeWyrker has accepted the Request, then the SydeWyrker has the option to text the User through a masked number for the purpose of notifying the User of the User’s arrival time window and to ask questions about the Request. SydeWyrk will have the ability and right to monitor these conversations to ensure there is no breach of the SydeWyrk terms.
Custom Jobs – When a User submits a custom job Request, it is the Users responsiblity to fully explain the job in detail with complete and accurate responsibilities for the hired individual. It is the Users responsiblity to not post a job that could cause danger or is unsafe for any hired parties. SydeWyrk does not take any responsiblity in ensuring jobs are complete and the User should communicate thouroughly with the hired party to complete the job to their complete and accurate Request. Users can post jobs worth $10 to $1,000. Appropriate sales tax and service fees will be added onto the job sub total.
Cancelling Services – A User may cancel a Request without penalty before a SydeWyrker has accepted the Request and is hired. Once a User has hired a SydeWyrker, if the User cancels within 5 hours of when the Service is scheduled to be performed, the User will be charged a $5.00 fee. If the User cancels the Service within an hour of the time when the Service is scheduled to be performed than the User will be charged a $10.00 fee. If the User cancels the Service after the SydeWyrker is in route the User will be charged the full amount of the fee for the Service. Users who cancel Service within an hour of when the Service is to be performed will have such noted on their profile so other SydeWyrkers will be able to see prior cancellation by the User when the User submits a new Request. SydeWyrk reserves the right to remove from the platform any User who in the sole opinion of SydeWyrk has cancelled Services frequently. If a SydeWyrker misses a scheduled Service or arrives 20 minutes past the time frame agreed to when the Service was to be performed than the User may cancel the job without penalty. Users have the opportunity to note on the SydeWyrkers profile any cancellation by the SydeWyrker which will be available to other Users in the future. These fees may or may not be enforced at SydeWyrks discretion on a case by case basis.
Rating of SydeWyrkers – Users will be required to give a 1-5 Star rating of the SydeWyrker once the Service is completed or if the SydeWyrker cancels the Service once accepted. SydeWyrk reserves the right to review the Users rating of a SydeWyrker for accuracy when compared to the Users Service Request. This review will be made available to other Users when a User is reviewing SydeWyrker profiles for another Service Request.
Payment of Fees – When a SydeWyrker has completed a Service, SydeWyrk will allow our third party payment processor to bill the User’s credit card for the full amount of the Service fee, processing fee, and any applicable sales taxes for the county the job was performed. Users agree to provide SydeWyrk with accurate and complete billing information, including valid credit card information, the User’s name, address and telephone number, and to promptly notify SydeWyrk of any changes in such information. If, for any reason, a User’s credit card company refuses to pay the amount billed for the Service, a User agrees that SydeWyrk may, at its option, suspend or terminate a User from use of the Platform and require the User to pay the overdue amount by other means acceptable to SydeWyrk. SydeWyrk may charge a fee for reinstatement of suspended or terminated accounts. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, Users agree to reimburse SydeWyrk for all expenses incurred to recover the sums due, including attorney fees and other legal expenses.
Payment Processor – Users are required to provide their credit card or bank account details when registering as a User. By doing so, a User authorizes SydeWyrk to provide this information to the third party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”). SydeWyrk uses a third party Payment Processor “Stripe” to handle all transactions, and all billing information is retained by them including, but not limited to, credit card numbers, bank account and routing numbers. SydeWyrkers are required to provide at least the last four digits of their Social Security Numbers to ensure identity through Stripe. SydeWyrk does not store sensitive billing information. Payment processing services for the account holders on SydeWyrk, which are provided by Stripe, are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). By agreeing to these terms or continuing to operate as a User on SydeWyrk, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time. As a condition of SydeWyrk enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide SydeWyrk with accurate and complete information about yourself, and you authorize SydeWyrk to share it, and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe. The payment processors terms govern your use and interaction with the payment processor. SydeWyrk is not liable for any Users use or access to the payment processor. Under no circumstance does SydeWyrk or our third party partners act of handling payments give us, or them, any responsibility on Services performed.
Changes to SydeWyrk Platform – SydeWyrk may update, add, remove, suspend, or change any content or features of the Platform at any time.

Termination – A User may terminate their account with SydeWyrk at any time. At our discretion, we may also terminate any User or SydeWyrker account for any reason not prohibited by law. SydeWyrk may also refuse access to our Platform to any User for any reason not prohibited by law. After termination of account, these terms will remain in full affect regardless of which party initialized the account termination. A SydeWyrker that continually receives ratings and reviews that fall below a standard determined by SydeWyrk with accordance to these terms, will be suspended or terminated from the Platform.
Intermediary – SydeWyrk and our platform is merely a platform to connect individuals looking for help around their property with another individual willing to perform the work. We provide a way for SydeWyrkers to collect payment and a way for Users to pay for Services. In no way does this make us liable or responsible for the performance or quality of any work done by a SydeWyrker. We do not endorse SydeWyrkers, and their performance and customer reviews solely dictate their ratings by Users who have previously employed the SydeWyrker. It is the Users responsibility to review each profile before they hire them and it is under the Users sole discretion whether or not to request Services by a SydeWyrker.
Dispute Resolution – SydeWyrk is simply a Platform to connect SydeWyrkers with Users. When a SydeWyrker is hired by a User, they have entered into a contract between themselves for that Service. If there is a dispute after a provision of Services by a SydeWyrker, the User must try to resolve the dispute with the SydeWyrker by contacting them inside the platform within 24 hours of the completed service. If there is no resolution, the User may contact SydeWyrk at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to assist in resolving the dispute. As each jobs contract is between User and SydeWyrker, both parties agree to hold SydeWyrk harmless and release us from any and all claims, demands, actual or consequential damages of all kinds, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, direct and indirect, disclosed or undisclosed, in connection with any disputes that may arise from such email@example.com
User Dispute and Release – If a dispute arises between a User and a SydeWyrker or any other third party over the Services performed, including personal injury or damage to property, a User’s recourse is solely against the SydeWyrker who performed the Service, and under no circumstances is SydeWyrk liable. You also agree that SydeWyrk has no obligation to become involved with any such dispute that may arise. In such case that a dispute does arise, you release SydeWyrk, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from any demands, requests, claims, legal actions, and damages of all and any sort, known or unknown, disclosed or undisclosed, suspected or unsuspected, arising out of or in any way related to such dispute and our platform or services.

Agreement with User – A SydeWyrkers contract for the performance of the Service is with the User, not with SydeWyrk. SydeWyrk reserves the right to have another SydeWyrker complete the Service if SydeWyrk determines, in its sole discretion, that a SydeWyrker is unable to perform the Service requested by the User. You understand that User’s will be given information about you including your name, photo, five star rating, and previous job reviews and photos.
Cancellation by User – Once the User hires a SydeWyrker and then cancels the Services the User may be assessed a penalty by SydeWyrk and you will be notified of the cancellation.

When you accept the Service Request, you agree you are ready, willing, and able to satisfy all requirements and provide professional quality performance to complete the Service in the required amount of time.
Cancellation by SydeWyrker – To maintain the integrity of the platform and your credibility as a SydeWyrker, it is strongly advised that you never cancel an accepted service request unless absolutely necessary. Since we cannot guarantee another SydeWyrker will select and complete a job any cancellation or failure to show up to a Service Request will negatively impact your rating in your profile. If you cancel (3) or more service requests within a month’s time, or we determine in our sole discretion that you are regularly cancelling accepted Service Requests, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate you as a SydeWyrker. When you cancel an accepted Service Request, you may be charged a fee that will be used to entice another SydeWyrker to pick up that Service Request to maintain the satisfaction of the requesting User. If you have not shown up to the Service Address 15 minutes past the posted time frame for a service, it is considered a cancellation.
Fees & Payment Terms SydeWyrk’s third party payment processor will collect and process all fees and transactions for Services performed. You agree not to impose any other fees. Attempts to negotiate payment or to obtain payment in any form from the User for the Service provided is a violation of this Agreement and are grounds for your termination by SydeWyrk as a SydeWyrker.
SydeWyrk sets all fees for Services, which you acknowledge and agree to be your sole compensation, minus any fees retained by SydeWyrk, for Services you provide to a User. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change the SydeWyrk fees for any Service from time to time without notice to you.
Platform Fees – SydeWyrk will charge a platform fee (the “Platform Fee”), which shall be a percentage of the total fee for the Requested Service, such percentage will be determined in SydeWyrk’s sole discretion. Our payment processor will deduct the Platform fee automatically from the payment they deposit into the SydeWyrker’s account. If we choose to change, increase, decrease, or remove the Platform fee, we will communicate this to you by E-mail.
Payment Processing Fee – You acknowledge and agree that the Payment Processor may apply a fee, which can be deducted from the payment to you along with the Platform Fee. The processing fee may change without notice to you from time to time, subject to the contract between the Payment Processor and SydeWyrk.
Dispute over Service – You understand and agree that if a User makes a complaint to SydeWyrk concerning your Services or lack thereof, SydeWyrk reserves the right to withhold some or the entire fee until the complaint has been resolved between you and the User, deemed appropriate by SydeWyrk.
Obligation to Withhold Taxes – You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for complying with income tax, sales tax and other applicable taxes on any payments you receive through SydeWyrk for Services performed for a User. Further, you will be solely responsible for the timely payment of such tax and any interest or penalties. It is not the responsibility of SydeWyrk to prepare a 1099-MISC for you.

All SydeWyrkers will be able to access an overview of completed jobs and payments within their profile on the Platform. SydeWyrk may charge sales tax to the User for any applicable job. SydeWyrk is not responsible or liable for any taxes incurred from services provided by SydeWyrkers excluding the income of SydeWyrk.

It is your responsibility to pay all applicable federal, state, and local taxes resulting from your provision of Services. If it is determined that we should have withheld and/or paid any such taxes in which we did not withhold or pay, you must repay us or the requesting authority and hold SydeWyrk harmless to any resulting penalties or interest.
Non-Circumvention – You agree that for one year after performing or completing a Service for a User, you will not perform any Service for that User except through SydeWyrk.
Step In – In the event your provision of services falls below the standard of service, professionalism, and high quality of work required for the SydeWyrk Platform, we have the right to assign your job to another SydeWyrker to step in and complete the job. In this case, you agree that the SydeWyrker, who stepped in and completed the job, has the right to the payment for the services instead of you.
No Guarantee – SydeWyrk makes no guarantee regarding the availability of work for a SydeWyrker, payment from Users, or income from the Services.
