Prime Advisors Network Terms & Conditions

The Basics

By joining the Prime Advisors Network Advisory Network, you acknowledge and agree to the following:

  1. You are a non-agent independent contractor of Prime Advisors Network
  2. You will not reveal any confidential information that could lead to insider trading
  3. You will not go around our system to engage with a Learner (paying client) that we introduce to you.
  4. You will represent yourself in good faith and act in accordance with all Asia laws and applicable laws of other jurisdictions
  5. You will comply with any other pre-existing rules, regulations and agreement to which you are subject

Use of Your Advice and Content

If a Learner selects you for a Consultation, advice and content you provide in connection with that Consultation is solely owned by the Learner (e.g., as a “work for hire”).

Content you create independently of or prior to, any project (“Retained Content”) remains your property and you retain all rights, title, and interest in and to such Retained Content; however, you grant the Learner a perpetual, world-wide, royalty-free, and transferable license to use any Retained Content included in your work with the Learner.

Any inventions, discoveries or improvements that are based in full or in part on any content and information you create for a Learner in the course of a Consultation, shall be owned entirely by the Learner.

Payment Timing & Tax Requirements

Within 30 days of completion of a Consultation, Prime Advisors Network will pay you based on your individual rate.

You agree that you are responsible for paying any applicable taxes in your jurisdiction. Please note that Prime Advisors Network will neither require a W9 from you, nor need to file a 1099 on your behalf if you earn less than $600 working with us in any calendar year.

Reliance by Learners and You

These Terms & Conditions are intended to benefit yourself and Learners. Learners expect that all projects will be carried out in accordance with these Terms & Conditions and applicable laws and that, among other things, they will not receive any confidential information.

Non-Liability

Prime Advisors Network shall not be liable to you for any damages or legal costs relating to your participation as a Prime Advisors Network member.

Prime Advisors Network agrees that for its part it shall not seek to impose on you any liability for damages or legal costs.

Arbitration

Any dispute, controversy or claim, whether in tort, contract, or otherwise, that arises from or relates to these Terms & Conditions, including whether the claims asserted are arbitrable, shall be exclusively and finally determined by a single-arbiter arbitration under the rules of the Asia Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in effect from time to time. The enforceability of this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Asia Arbitration Act.

Each party is responsible for its own legal fees, and the arbitrator may not include the payment of attorneys’ fees or expenses as a part of any award. You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, neither you nor Prime Advisors Network shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against other Advisory Bench members, or arbitrate any claim as a class representative, class member, or in a private attorney general capacity.

If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration). You and Prime Advisors Network are agreeing to give up any rights to litigate claims in a court or before a jury or to participate in a class action or representative action with respect to a claim. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as access to discovery, may also be unavailable or may be limited in arbitration.

Governing Law

These Terms & Conditions, as well as any claims arising from or related thereto, whether in tort, contract or otherwise, are governed by Asia Law without regard to Asia choice of law rules.
