All Posts must comply with applicable local laws and regulations. Do not put up a post or comment if it's not legal where you are located.

Do not share your own or any other individual’s private contact details (such as full name, email, home address or phone number) in any public area of Task Junkies. For your safety and to maintain the integrity of the Task Junkies marketplace, we suggest that you only communicate through Task Junkies private messaging.

Users have control over the final amount they wish to offer on a Post (i.e. they may offer higher or lower than the listed price). Any comments that are considered trolling, aimed at influencing/defaming other User’s offers or derogatory towards the Posters budget will not be supported.

If you suspect a Post, Comment or User who may have violated these policies, please report it to Task Junkies using the red flag feature, which can be found on the Auction, so we can review it accordingly.

Members who breach the marketplace rules may have their account moderated, suspended or terminated.

Disputes

As engagements are agreed between the Poster and Bidder of choice, all agreements are final. Task Junkies is not responsible for refunds for any reason. 

If a User feels they may have been the victim of a crime, document what happened and contact the police. If a crime has taken place in relation to a Task Junkies transaction, provide us with a copy of the police report or guide the authorities to contact us so that we can follow up and take appropriate action.
