Lancify has created a marketplace to connect clients and freelancers using the Lancify Platform. The Lancify Platform enables both clients and freelancers to buy and sell Services online. Clients post jobs and invite freelancers to apply. Freelancers apply to Jobs. If a Client accepts a Freelancer’s Job application, a contract (the “Service Contract” or “Consultancy Agreement”) is formed directly between such Client and Freelancer.
The Freelancer will provide services to the Client as described and agreed on the Lancify Platform and will be governed by this Agreement.
It is understood that the Freelancer is acting as an independent contractor only, and is not an agent for or an employee of the Client or of Lancify. The Freelancer shall have no authority to enter into any commitments on behalf of the Client or Lancify or to hold themselves out as an employee of the Client or Lancify. The Freelancer shall act at all times as an independent contractor, and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any form of employment, agency, or partnership between the Client and the Freelancer or between Lancify and the Freelancer.

(1) we are required by law or consider that we are required by law to do so;
