GoitGlobal will send payments thru the payments gateways services if the member requests it and their account balance is equal to or greater than $50. All amounts are stated in and all payments will be made in US funds. GoitGlobal reserves the right to suspend a withdrawal if the source of the funds is suspected to be fraudulent.

Members agree not to post their e-mail address on the site, except in the "e-mail" field of the signup form, or when asked by GoitGlobal at any other time. There should be no need to give anyone your e-mail address. It is automatically provided if you choose a Freelancer (or you are the Freelancer chosen for) a Project Request, and before that time you can use the message board to communicate. This does not only apply to e-mail addresses, but to all methods of communication, including phone, Facebook, ICQ, AIM, MSN Messenger, Skype etc... See "Avoiding Commissions" below for the reason. -
PROVIDING CONTACT INFORMATION
You are prohibited from making direct contact with another member, unless it's for a Project Request you have been picked for, or you have picked a Freelancer for. This includes giving out your e-mail address, ICQ/MSN/Skype number, phone number, or any other method of contact outside of this site. GoitGlobal provides you with message boards, which should be sufficient for pre-Project Request planning. -
You are strictly prohibited from attempting to negotiate the fee for a project with another member directly (outside of GoitGlobal) after that project has been created/opened and before that project has been closed (basically, during an ongoing project). But this also applies to any project that was closed without a Freelancer being chosen, and then contacting them about the project anyway. Both parties are responsible for notifying GoitGlobal if the payment amount increases (above the bid amount) after the project is closed. Receiving a larger amount than the original project bid, without notifying us, will be considered an attempt to avoid the commissions. When a Freelancer requests a withdrawal, we always review all payments received for each project to verify that they match the bid. If at the time of a withdrawal request the Freelancer has failed to notify GoitGlobal staff of a payment received above the amount of his bid (a total payment above US$ 100), GoitGlobal reserves the right to deduct double the fee for the amount that should have been reported. We believe our commissions are very fair and justified for the service we provide, therefore we will absolutely not tolerate any of this activity on GoitGlobal. -
No copyrighted material can be posted on GoitGlobal. This includes programming-related content, scripts or code which is sold or owned by the author, or graphic design content which is sold or owned by the author. Only posting sections, excerpts or examples of such content, will be permitted. A "section" or "excerpt" being no more than 10% of the original content, and "example" being a draft or pseudo-coded program. This is necessary to protect the author's intellectual property rights. -
