You acknowledge and agree that Babelprojekt has the sole discretion to set forth and post additional terms and conditions for your use of the website on the website itself. You agree that those additional terms and conditions shall be considered an effective amendment to these Terms and said Terms and Conditions shall be incorporated herein.

III. Product Information and Warranties – Changes in the Service
The Service will be provided with care and due diligence, in a professional manner and in accordance with the Terms and Conditions. Babelprojekt has made a conscientious effort to display and describe its services on the website accurately. Babelprojekt is constantly improving its information, products and services. Consequently, Babelprojekt cannot and does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information, including prices, specifications, availability and services. You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the services which Babelprojekt provides may change without prior notice to you. Babelprojekt reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service with or without notice to you or other users. Babelprojekt shall not be liable to users or any third party should Babelprojekt exercise its right to modify or discontinue the Service.
Whilst we endeavor to ensure that the website is available 24 hours a day, we shall not be liable if, for any reason, the website is unavailable at any time or for any period. Access to the website may be suspended temporarily and without notice in the case of a system failure, maintenance or repair or for any reasons beyond our control.
Registration is open to anyone. Each (private or company) user registering on Babelprojekt can have one account. By registering your company, you declare that you have the authority to bind your company to the present Terms. Registration as a Freelancer or Outsourcer is also open to students. Translation Companies and Company Outsourcers registering must have a valid VAT number.
Each user has a unique user name and password. Babelprojekt does not permit users to share their user name and password with any other person or business entity. Furthermore, your account may not be transferred to a third party. Responsibility for the security of any password issued rests with you and you are solely responsible for all actions taken with your user name and password.
To access certain services, you may be required to provide information about yourself (such as qualification or contact details) as part of the registration process for the Service, or as part of your continued use of the Service. You agree that any registration information you give to Babelprojekt will always be accurate, correct and up to date. You may not misrepresent yourself or your firm.
Please note that there are risks of dealing with foreign nationals who may not fall under the laws of your area, minors, and people acting under false pretence. Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, Babelprojekt cannot and does not guarantee that each user is who he/she claims to be.
VI. Babelprojekt’s services
We are not a translation service provider or a translation agency. The website is a neutral platform through which Outsourcers and Freelancers or Translator Companies can meet and enter into business. We are in no way involved in the actual transaction between Outsourcers and Freelancers. As a result, we have no control over the quality or legality of the services provided by users, the truth or accuracy of information posted, the ability of service providers to perform services as represented, or of service consumers to properly evaluate finished services. We cannot and do not control whether the parties to a transaction will perform as agreed. Because we cannot and will not be involved in user-to-user dealings, if you have a dispute with one or more users, Babelprojekt is neither responsible nor liable as detailed in Clause IX. Babelprojekt cannot and will not guarantee the ability of users to complete payment for any of the provided services. Furthermore, due to the difficulty of authentication, especially on the Internet, Babelprojekt cannot and will not in any manner verify or confirm the identity of users, profile of users, or ability of users to pay for the provided services. You acknowledge and agree that all communications, correspondence, verbal or written, or any warranties or representations, made about the services are not provided by Babelprojekt and are specifically and solely between you and the other user.
It is the user’s responsibility to communicate directly with anyone they meet at Babelprojekt, with whom they are considering entering a contract. Inquire about all the information you as a user deem necessary to determine another user’s trustworthiness.
If you are a user, you hereby agree that the website is for translation related services only and that the work that you provide will only involve services. You agree that you will not use Babelprojekt to market or sell any goods or products or other services unrelated to translation, unless specifically permitted by Babelprojekt.
Besides providing this neutral platform, Babelprojekt is a social networking website. People may post information that is offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in certain cases may be mislabelled or deceptively labelled. We expect that you will use caution–and common sense–when using Babelprojekt.
Babelprojekt is in no way involved in payment for the translation and related services and is not responsible for any monetary disputes. It is the responsibility of both the Freelancer/Translation Company and the Outsourcer to resolve all monetary disputes, outside of Babelprojekt.
VII. Your Services
You acknowledge that by providing your service on our website you accept the terms of services described by the Outsources in the translation assignment. You acknowledge that the Babelprojekt website exists for Outsourcers to make a fully informed decision about your services offering, policies and procedures. Therefore, you shall only quote services which you can provide. You acknowledge that your quote includes all and any charges related to all the requested services, excluding VAT. Babelprojekt reserves the right to suspend or cancel your account at Babelprojekt’s sole discretion.
VIII: Complaint Management and Problem Resolution
Babelprojekt is dedicated to effective and prompt complaint management, problem resolution and the analysis and mitigation of the root causes of complaints. A complaint or a dispute between you and Babelprojekt must be expressed by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Babelprojekt is committed to provide an answer in 30 calendar days. Babelprojekt will attempt to resolve any disputes you have with us, operators. Because Babelprojekt is a neutral platform, Babelprojekt is not responsible for resolving any disputes between you and other users. If you, however, report a dispute to Babelprojekt, we will make every effort to help both parties to communicate. Therefore, if Babelprojekt is contacted by a user who claims to have a dispute with you regarding the services and they request your contact information (including but not limited to any of the phone numbers and/or addresses you provided) to settle the dispute, you expressly authorize Babelprojekt to release the contact information you provided to the user and you agree to release Babelprojekt from all liability associated therewith. Babelprojekt encourages you to report all user-to-user disputes to law enforcement officials or a certified mediation or arbitration entity. Babelprojekt does not specifically endorse any such third-party mediation or arbitration entity. When appropriate, Babelprojekt also encourages you to report disputes involving fraud, theft, or other criminal activity to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.
IX. Limitation of Liability
Because Babelprojekt is not involved in the actual transaction between Translators and Outsourcers, Babelprojekt has no control and shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages, resulting from the use or the inability to use the services, for the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services or resulting from any goods or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through the service or resulting from unauthorized access to or alteration of User’s transmissions or data, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, use data or other intangible, even if Babelprojekt has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
You release Babelprojekt, its officers, directors, agents, employees and affiliates from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of any kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. This further includes reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your negligence, breach of these Terms, or violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
Users and Babelprojekt agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to this Service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
The section titles in this Agreement are solely used for the convenience of the parties and have no legal or contractual significance.

Babelprojekt uses industry standard practices to safeguard your personal information, including firewalls and secure socket layers. Babelprojekt utilizes several different security techniques to protect data from unauthorized access but cannot guarantee the security of the system.

As described in Clause V. you are solely responsible if you do not maintain the confidentiality of your password and account.

If any provision of the Terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable then that provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. The remainder of the Terms shall be construed as if such an invalid or unenforceable provision had never been a part of the Terms but in a manner to carry out as nearly as possible the parties’ original intent.
The failure by either party to enforce at any time any of the provisions of these Terms, to exercise any election or option provided herein, or to require at any time the performance of the other of any of the provisions herein will not in any way be construed as a waiver of such provisions. You agree that if Babelprojekt does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Babelprojekt has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken as a formal waiver of Babelprojekt’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Babelprojekt.
Reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs will be awarded to the prevailing party in the event of litigation involving the enforcement or interpretation of these Terms. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.

You acknowledge and agree that each member of the group of companies of which Babelprojekt is the parent shall be third party beneficiaries to the Terms and that such other companies shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of the Terms which confers a benefit on (or rights in favor of) them. Other than this, no other person or company shall be third party beneficiary to the Terms.
The present Terms are concluded for an indefinite term. Upon termination thereof for whatever reason, you are to return all documentation, confidential or proprietary information and materials and any copies of thereof in your possession or delete any copies of the same held electronically.
