7.3. In case of an escrow payment, Lexify.me shall keep the withdrawn client funds in a secure Stripe account until the client confirms that he/she has received the particular service from the professional.

7.4. In case of an advance payment the money for the service is withdrawn from the client’s debit/credit card and is directly wired to the professional without ever being in control of Lexify.me.

VIII. Commissions and Payment Processing Fees

8.1. Lexify.me has the right to charge and withdraw a commission fee from any service that the professional has sold to his/her client. For the purpose of the current terms, a sold service shall mean any service offered for sale by the professional to the client, which service has been booked by the client and the latter has confirmed its receipt in case of an escrow payment. If the professional designated an advance payment for a certain service then the commission fee is withdrawn in the same manner without the need of client confirmation.

8.2. The professional is presented a payment simulator during the creation of any service. The payment simulator shows the professional the fee that he/she has determined for a particular service, including any local tax that he/she specifies as taxable on the legal fee. The simulator further presents the professional the exact revenue that he/she will make and receive after Lexify.me withdraws its commission provided the particular service would be sold to the professional’s client.

8.3. Lexify.me reserves its right to specify various commission thresholds based on the amount of the legal fee determined by the professional for a particular service. The following example presents how a commission threshold is applied to the fee: if the professional’s fee is up to USD 100 then Lexify.me can specify 10 percent commission for services with legal fees that are up to USD 100. Hence, if the professional has sold a tailor-made consultation for USD 80 then it will be subject to 10 percent commission, therefore Lexify.me shall credit the professional’s bank account with USD 72, as Lexify.me will withdraw USD 8 from the fee of the sold service.

8.4. Lexify.me shall show the professional the payment simulator for every single service that the professional creates or edits. Lexify.me shall always specify clearly and charge its commission only on the specified fee, excluding all other taxes if the professional is required by the applicable law of a certain jurisdiction to levy a certain tax/es on his/her fee that shall be paid by the client. For example, because of the particular jurisdiction, if the professional is required to charge, say, 20 percent VAT (value added tax) on his/her USD 100 fee then Lexify.me shall apply the 10 percent commission threshold only on the tax base of USD 100.

8.5. Lexify.me shall be solely responsible for the payment of all payment-processing fees. The payment processing fees are incurred under the following circumstances: i. when the client books a service; ii. when Lexify.me credits the professional bank account with his/her fee for a sold service; iii. when Lexify.me issues a refund to the client for a particular booked service.

IX. Disputes and Refunds

The below points from 9.1 to 9.10 hereinafter concern disputes and refunds for which the professional has designated escrow payment as the desired payment flow for a particular transaction.

9.1. The client can open a dispute, aiming to receive a full refund for a booked service, because of the professional’s failure to perform that booked service. For the purpose of these terms, the professional’s failure to perform a service shall mean that the professional has not delivered any service at all by breaching seriously the booked terms of his/her own service. The serious breach denies the client the main benefit of a particular service. The following are some examples that aim only to illustrate situations when the professional fails to perform his/her service, however, Lexify.me reserves its right to investigate each case separately:

9.1.1. . The professional fails to join a consultation or event call through Lexify.me at the specified date and time. Under such circumstances, the professional must have also failed to provide ahead of time another meeting alternative to his/her client at the same/prior or subsequent date and time as those of the booked service; for example a regular phone call or meeting in person, if the latter could have been conceivable under the specific circumstances.

9.1.2. The professional joins the call noticeably late and/or terminates the call noticeably earlier than the specified consultation or event end without suggesting ahead of time to compensate the client/s with additional consultation/event time, if the latter could have been conceivable under the specific circumstances.

9.1.3. The professional fails to deliver the tailor-made service before the specified deadline.


9.2. Lexify.me does not limit the non-performance situations only to the above examples but attempts to illustrate what can be considered non-performance on part of the professional.

9.3. By creating an account with Lexify.me, all professionals and clients expressly acknowledge that Lexify.me cannot assess the quality of a certain service. Hence, Lexify.me shall not accept any dispute claims on part of the client that only subjectively or emotionally criticize the quality of a certain service without referring to any empirical fact or evidence that demonstrates the professional’s failure to perform. Lexify.me acknowledges that the service provided by each professional may vary in quality depending on the professional’s expertise that builds over time and is subject to multiple factors such as education, professional and social experience, cultural background etc.

9.4. After the date and time for a particular general consultation, tailor-made consultation or event, or the deadline for a tailor-made service has passed Lexify.me will send multiple emails to the client/s email prompting the client/s to confirm if he/she/they has/have received the service from the professional. If any of the clients considers that the professional has failed to perform the booked service then the client shall immediately open a dispute with Lexify.me by sending an email to support@lexify.me. The client shall use the same email that he/she has previously used to set up his account with Lexify.me. As email title, the client shall quote the title of the booked service that he/she thinks the professional has failed to perform. The client shall further explain in his/her own words the facts and evidence that the client alleges to show the professional’s failure to perform the service.

9.5. If within 48 /forty-eight/ hours after a particular general consultation, tailor-made consultation or event, or the deadline for a tailor-made service has passed the client neither confirms receipt of the service nor opens a dispute, as described under the previous point 9.4. above, then Lexify.me shall consider the client’s reluctance to act a silent confirmation on part of the client that he/she has received the service in question. If the latter situation is at hand, without prejudice to point 8.1 (second sentence) above, Lexify.me has the right to release the legal fee from the booking to the professional, as it would have released it had the client confirmed receipt of the service by clicking on the “Confirm” button in his/her account.

9.6. Upon receiving the client’s dispute email, Lexify.me shall investigate the client’s claims. Lexify.me shall further refer to both the professional and the client for additional explanations, and shall further examine their correspondence and other exchanges, if any, through Lexify.me. Lexify.me can examine if the professional has complied with his/her own service terms that the professional had previously stipulated when he/she had offered the service, which the client has booked.

9.7. Whenever Lexify.me identifies that the professional has not delivered any service to the client by breaching seriously the booked terms of his/her own service then Lexify.me shall issue immediately full refund to the professional’s client. Lexify.me shall refund the client’s credit or debit card used to book the service, unless the client expressly instructs in writing Lexify.me to wire the refund to an alternative account.

9.8. Whenever Lexify.me identifies that the professional has delivered the service to the client but the latter only subjectively criticize the quality of a certain service, without referring to any empirical fact or evidence that demonstrates the professional’s failure to perform, then Lexify.me has the right to release the legal fee from the booking to the professional, as it would have released it had the client confirmed receipt of the service by clicking on the “Confirm” button in his/her account.

9.9.The professionals can also open a dispute concerning a specific service when the client’s failure to perform according to the service’s terms constitutes a serious breach, which in this case, makes the professional unable to perform and/or impedes the performance of the service. Hence, the clauses of this section shall apply also to all professional-initiated disputes to the extent that these clauses are pertinent to the initiation, investigation and assessment of the disputes, and the issuance of refunds or the release of the fees to the professionals.

9.10. If the professional and the client are not able to resolve amicably a particular dispute, then Lexify.me shall hold the funds for a specific service until the court or other authority, depending on the circumstances, has resolved the dispute concerning that service, and Lexify.me is instructed unequivocally by that authority or decision or order thereof on how to process the funds.

The below point 9.11 concerns disputes and refunds for which the professional has designated advance payment as the desired payment flow for a particular transaction.

9.11. When a certain professional creates a service through Lexify.me, he/she has the right to designate advance payment in which case the funds are immediately wired to that same professional. In this sense, Lexify.me shall not be held liable for any refunds on services for which the professional has designated advance payment since Lexify.me is at no point in control of the wired funds as opposed to the escrow payment. In that case, the client (paying party) is still eligible to open a dispute with Lexify.me but the client must seek, if applicable, partial or full refund of the funds from the professional only. If this situation is at hand, Lexify.me shall still investigate the dispute and can resort to the actions set forth under point 9.6 above in order to substantiate an amicable settlement between the parties to the dispute.

X. Acting in Good Faith

10.1.Each party to these terms undertakes the obligation to act in good faith at all times.
