Terms of Service ​

Welcome to academeus’s terms of service.

We have made these terms as simple, clear and unequivocal as possible. We don’t want to create long, unread terms that create scope for confusion, ambiguity and problems.

Before you proceed any further, please read our Privacy Policy; Website Terms & Conditions and Acceptable Use Policy.

By signing up to academeus, you are acknowledging and agreeing to the following Service Agreement terms, our Privacy Policy, Website Terms & Conditions; Acceptable Use Policy:

1. Our role

academeus is at its core, a platform by which we help experts sell their expertise and their services, and one in which we help clients from all sectors of industry, business and government, find the exact expert they need.

2. Service and liability

  • 2.1 Our company is not responsible for any issues regarding the actions taken on and off our platform; we are not responsible for any problems or issues that may occur during or after the usage of our service.
  • 2.2 We are simply providing an agency service for both academics and clients. We will not accept responsibility for any problems that occur using our platform.
  • 2.3 We cannot guarantee the accuracy of any of the information listed on our site (please read Website Terms and Conditions for more information) that we ourselves have not produced.

3. Payment agreements

  • 3.1 Any business obtained through the platform must have all related payment transactions made through our payment system. This means all business, including ventures secured with a client that you have already completed work with previously.
  • 3.2 We are able to track whether agreements have been made, and whether necessary payments have been taken. We will therefore monitor any discrepancies between projects finished, and follow-up payments.
  • 3.3 If you circumvent our payment system for any business secured through academeus, you are violating agreed terms. This will result in, at the very minimum, your blacklisting from the platform, and at the very worst, legal action taken against you to retrieve all legally owed payments. Our response will be contingent on our perceived severity of your conduct and agreement breach. We will take all things into consideration when such an evaluation is made.
  • 3.4 Our payment system takes 5% of the total fee the expert is paid from the client (commission payment). Our payment system also takes an additional 5% of the total value of the payment from the client on top of the expert’s commission (finder’s fee). This rate of commission is not fixed and therefore is possibly subject to change. We will inform you if a change is implemented.
  • 3.5 Any long-term, permanent or semi-permanent job that has been gained through academeus, whether that employment has occurred directly or indirectly, necessitates a payment to academeus. This agency fee is 5% of the total salary for that period, or if permanent, 5% of the first-year salary. Failure to comply with this payment term will result in permanent barring from academeus.

4. Reliability

  • 4.1 We cannot guarantee the accuracy of any of the information listed on our site, except that which we ourselves have produced. We are not liable for any problems or difficulties you might face as a result of any of false or misleading information. Please read Website Terms and Conditions for more information.
  • 4.2 If you believe that there is a user providing and disseminating false, incorrect or fraudulent information, notify our team at help@academeus.org. We will attempt to investigate at your request. Please note that given the size of our company, this may take a fair amount of time to complete.
  • 4.3 We will try to provide a regular and uninterrupted service, but we cannot make any guarantees of this.

5. Service level reporting

6. Response and issue resolution (timeframe)
