Written Notification. We have adopted the following general policy toward copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). This policy provides for the termination of access, in appropriate circumstances, to Users who are repeat copyright infringers. We may, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, disable and/or terminate access to Users who may be infringing the intellectual property of a third party. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide our Copyright Agent the following information (to be effective, the notification must be in writing and provided to our Copyright Agent):
- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
- a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located;
- your address, telephone number, and, if available, email address;
- a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.
Upon receipt of a valid written notification containing the information as outlined in 1 through 6 above, we shall, (1) remove or disable access to allegedly infringing content; (2) forward the written notification to the alleged infringer; and (3) take reasonable steps to promptly notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to the allegedly infringing content.
Counter Notification. To be effective, a counter notification must be a written communication provided to our DMCA Agent that includes substantially the following:
- your physical or electronic signature;
- identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
- a statement, as follows: “I swear under penalty of perjury that it is my good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled”; and
- your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you are located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Commerce Hero may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.
Upon receipt of a valid counter notification containing the information as outlined in 1 through 4 above, the DMCA provides that the removed material will be restored or access re-enabled and we will comply with this requirement within a reasonable time (or as otherwise required by law), provided our DMCA Agent has not received notice from the original complaining party that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our network or system.
If you believe in good faith that any material posted on the Services infringes any of your other intellectual property rights, or is otherwise unlawful, you must notify us at email@example.com. We will evaluate the submission, and if appropriate, in our sole discretion, we will take action. We may disclose your submission to the poster of the claimed violative material, or any other party.

As a general rule, we strongly discourage clients and heroes from engaging in fixed bid project estimates. Unless the project scope is very well defined, software estimation tends to be notoriously difficult to do well.
In the event that a client wants to engage with a developer on a fixed bid basis, the project scope and bid will need to be personally reviewed and approved by the Commerce Hero team.
For contract work, we don't issue refunds for any contract work that you have paid for. For full time recruitment commissions, we do offer pro-rated refunds for the month in which you stopped working with the candidate.
