THE PENALTY SYSTEM

 Penalty Regulations (abbreviated Regulations)

 

Any violation of rules by users (Designers and Clients) of the Geelancer.com service provided by the company Green Design Ltd. shall be sanctioned by the unique penalty system described in the Penalty Regulations (abbreviated Regulations) for non-compliance with the Terms of Use in form of liquidated damages. The Regulations are an integral part of the Terms of Use of Geelancer.com and they may be updated without prior notice to the users.

The penalty system is comprised of 3 levels:

  1. Notified – the user is notified about their first violation and made aware of the penalty rules
  2. Final Warning – the user is notified about their second violation, made aware of the penalty rules again along with the possibility of being banned from the Geelancer.com website.
  3. Banned – the user is notified about their third violation and their Geelancer.com account is banned with no possibility of reactivation.

 

These penalty regulations are applied in the following situations:

  • Abusing the section GeeMee part of Geelancer service

Each stated offense is evaluated and sanctioned by this unique penalty system. For instance, if a member publishes a plagiarised work violating someone else’s copyright, they shall be sanctioned and Notified. Should the same or similar be repeated, they shall receive a Final Warning. Upon the next, third, same or similar violation they shall be Banned without the possibility of reactivation. Organised and deliberate violation of the Geelancer.com rules is treated as a gross violation and is sanctioned with a permanent ban.

If a member does not commit any violation within a period of 6 months from the last violation, their status changes to one of the lower level.

Geelance.com has the discretionary right to momentarily ban permanently and deactivate any member it believes to have grossly violated the rights of Geelancer.com and endangered it, without waiting for a second or third warning.
