1. Introduction to the Platform

1.1 Description of the Platform. MM provides a specialized online marketplace ("Platform") which links you, a business user seeking to submit a description of one or more software or data professional services requirements, or other such related work, ("Client") for Service Provider account holders who are individual contractors or representing agencies, consultancies, systems integrators or companies that have registered to provide services via the Platform. Clients and Service Providers are able to conduct a dialogue about prospective engagements (including scope, timing and price) and enter into direct agreements for the provision of relevant professional services (“Project(s)”).


1.2 Project Contracts. Any such agreements (including without limitation, pricing, milestones for payments, timing, scope of the work, deliverables and other Project related issues) (“Project Contracts”) are a matter for negotiation and resolution between Clients and Service Providers alone. MM is solely the provider of a marketplace technology infrastructure to enable Clients and Service Providers to meet and consider working together and entering into such agreements directly. IN PARTICULAR MM IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FORM, CONTENT OR PROPER DELIVERY OF ANY ELEMENT OF THE PROJECT AND MM EXPECTS THE CLIENT AND THE SERVICE PROVIDER TO SATISFY THEMSELVES PRIOR TO ENTERING INTO ANY PROJECT CONTRACT THAT THERE ARE NO TECHNICAL ISSUES OR TECHNICAL INCOMPATIBILITIES THAT WOULD PREVENT SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT. MM WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY REFUNDS OR UNDERWRITE OR COMPENSATE ANY FEES DUE TO AN SERVICE PROVIDER AS A RESULT OF ANY ISSUES IN THIS REGARD.


1.3 Payments on the Platform. MM is remunerated by way of: (i) a commission fee for the Project as in force and communicated to the Service Provider from time to time; and (ii) notified administrative fees from time to time. Details of these payments can be found in the MM FAQs.

No material on the site is intended to contain advice, and you should not rely on it. We exclude all legal responsibility and costs for reliance placed on the site by anyone.


1.5 Changes to the Platform. MM is constantly changing and improving the Website and our Platform but we do not have to do this and material you access may be out-of-date. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop the Platform altogether. You can stop using our Platform at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. We may also stop providing the Platform to you, or add or create new limits to our Platform at any time.


2. Your Account - Registration and Eligibility

2.4 Responsibility for Login Credentials. Each Client will be required to choose a username and password ("Access Information") in order to access the Platform and shall be solely responsible for safeguarding such Access Information and keeping it confidential.
