Platform is an online space where Users buy and sell services. Users must register for an account in order to buy or sell services. Platform enables Users to work together online to complete and pay for projects, buy and sell services and to use the services that we provide regarding facilitating connections between Users (“Services”).
If you are accessing or using Platform on behalf of a company or other legal entity (“User Entity”), it is essential that you possess the legal authority to enter into these T&Cs on behalf of the User Entity. In such cases, the terms “you”, “your”, or “User” shall refer to the User Entity that you represent. It is your responsibility to ensure that your representation and actions on behalf of the User Entity are within your legal rights and authority.
If you do not possess such legal authority, or if you do not agree with any part of these T&Cs, you are not permitted to accept these T&Cs, and consequently, you must not access or use Platform. Your continued use of Platform signifies your explicit agreement to these T&Cs and your obligations and rights as User.
It's important to periodically review these T&Cs, as we reserve the right to modify or update them at any time. Such modifications will be effective immediately upon posting the revised terms on Platform, and your continued use of Platform following any such changes indicates your acceptance of the new T&Cs. We will endeavor to notify you of significant changes to T&Cs, but it remains your responsibility to review them regularly to stay informed of any updates.
Your agreement to T&Cs also signifies your understanding that Platform may evolve over time. This might include changes, removal, or addition of features, services, or content. We will strive to improve your experience on Platform, but such changes may occur at our discretion and without prior notice to you.
By using Platform, you affirm that you are of legal age to enter into these T&Cs. If you are not of legal age, you must have a parent or legal guardian read and agree to these terms on your behalf.
Authorization to access and use Platform and its content. In compliance with T&Cs and their stipulations, Youpalgroup grants you permission to access and use Platform and its content primarily for the purpose of evaluating Youpalgroup and its services.

Access to Platform and its content should be solely through the interfaces provided by Youpalgroup. You are prohibited from using any means such as “page-scrape,” “deep-link,” “spider,” or “robot,” or any similar process to access, copy, or monitor any part of Platform or its content or to bypass their navigational structure to obtain information.

Supplementary Agreements for Individual Cooperations
In addition to these T&Cs Users of Youpalgroup's services are required to execute separate agreements including non-disclosure agreements specific to each individual project or collaboration they engage in. These supplementary agreements are drafted to detail the specific terms, conditions, and expectations pertinent to each unique cooperation.
Specificity of Supplementary Agreements: These agreements serve to address the nuances and specific requirements of each individual project or cooperation, thereby providing clarity and precision beyond the general scope of these T&Cs.
Execution Requirement: Before commencing any project or cooperation, Users must review and agree to the terms set forth in the respective supplementary agreement. This agreement, reflecting the specifics of the collaboration, must be duly signed by the User and an authorized representative of Youpalgroup.
Precedence in Case of Discrepancies: In instances where there is a discrepancy or conflict between the general T&Cs and the terms of the specific supplementary agreement, the terms of the supplementary agreement will take precedence. This clause ensures that the more specific terms tailored to the individual project or cooperation are given priority.
Binding Effect: These supplementary agreements, once signed, are legally binding. Users are expected to fully comply with the terms outlined in these agreements, in addition to adhering to the general T&Cs of Platform.
