D. Relationship between Service Provider and Client
a. Contract. Service Provider and Client enter into a Contract to perform specific Services when Client accepts Service Provider’s offer through the CarrySquad Services (a “Contract”). You acknowledge and agree that CarrySquad is not a party to any Contract, and that the formation of a Contract between the Users will not, under any circumstance, create an employment or other service relationship between CarrySquad and any User.
b. Provision of Services. Service Provider will perform the Services in a timely, professional and workmanlike manner. The manner and means of performing the Services will be determined and controlled solely by Service Provider, which is engaged by Client as an independent contractor. To the extent that Service Provider uses other parties (individuals or entities) (“Assistants”) to perform the Services, Service Provider agrees and acknowledges that:
c. Termination of Contract. Once a Client’s Payment Method has been charged to fund the Holding Account for the Contract, absent a full refund to Client by Service Provider, the Contract does not terminate until the Services are completed. However, either Client or Service Provider has the right to terminate a Contract at any time with the consent of the other party or in the event of a material breach by the other party.
E. Payment Terms
a. Client/Service Provider Accounts.
After Client has made a purchase and transferred money to CarrySquad, CarrySquad will establish and maintain a “Client Account” to hold funds for the Client to use to make payments pursuant to Contracts, and pay Service Fee (as defined below) to CarrySquad.
After Service Provider registers an Account and provides Payment Method, CarrySquad will establish and maintain a “Service Provider Account” for the Service Provider to receive payments under Contracts, withdraw payments, and to pay any ancillary service fees and pay Service Fee to CarrySquad.
b. Funding Client Holding Account. When Client and Service Provider enter into a Contract, Client authorizes CarrySquad to charge Client’s Payment Method in the amount agreed between Client and Service Provider pursuant to a particular Contract (the “Contract Fees”). Both Client and Service Provider authorize CarrySquad to establish and maintain a separate account to receive, hold, and release Contract Fees (the “Holding Account”). Each of Service Provider and Client agrees that it is not entitled to nor will receive interest or other earnings on the funds held in the Holding Account prior to disbursement to Service Provider.

ii. Client and Service Provider are encouraged to come to a mutual agreement if refunds or cancellations are necessary.

If Client wants to terminate a Contract, Client must instruct CarrySquad to close the Contract. Service Provider must either approve or dispute the Client’s cancellation within 4 calendar days. If Service Provider approves the termination, Service Provider and Client agree that CarrySquad is authorized and irrevocably instructed to immediately release to Client all funds held by CarrySquad associated with the Contract, less Service Fee. If Service Provider takes no action within 4 calendar days from the date Service Provider was notified of the cancellation, Service Provider and Client agree that CarrySquad is authorized and irrevocably instructed to immediately release to Client all funds held by CarrySquad associated with the Contract, less Service Fee.

Any arbitration will be conducted in Estonia, in the English language and unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction, the law to be applied in any arbitration shall be the law of Estonia, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles.
C. Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the ICC Rules. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the ICC will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the ICC Rules.
D. Fees. Your responsibility to pay any ICC filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the ICC Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, CarrySquad will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose.
