§ racist conduct against African Americans (including, if such an allegation was credibly made but not prosecuted or investigated. An allegation is deemed credible when the person making such allegation is determined to suffer harm equal to or greater than the potential benefit, e.g. when a woman accuses a potential favored presidential candidate of sexual assault knowing that past women who have made such allegations have sustained reputational and other personal harm);

§ unlawful or immoral interference into a legal matter adversely impacting African Americans or women (staying silent, or refusing to provide evidence or knowledge of an individual or entity’s wrong committed against someone else when the person wronged has requested redress for that wrong is violative of this provision); and

§ stand against malfeasance, nonfeasance, or misfeasance at work, school, or other social, professional, or non-domestic setting, where a woman or African American person was victimized in any manner consistent with the acts or descriptions above (e.g. you were in the room or close enough to act or report such acts, but failed to do so; you did not participate but remained nearby where such acts occurred; for example: you filmed the encounter but did not turn over the recording until required to do so by law enforcement; you falsified information about an incident and evidence, or testimony can show you knew such statement or depiction to be fraudulent, misleading, or omitting relevant information).
The above acts and descriptions include commissions and omissions, malfeasance, nonfeasance, and misfeasance, and conduct committed or omitted – with or without a conviction – regardless of if such conduct has been expunged from the record (except for in the case of a party innocent of the alleged act).
The goal and intent of these rules are clear: to protect the site, company, owner(s), clients, customers – families and livelihoods – from immoral, unlawful, undesirable or otherwise reprehensible acts, behaviors, persons, entities, and associations.
We are standard bearers of moral and lawful decency, and do not wish to be tarnished by disreputable acts, persons, or entities.

The following persons are exempted from the above permanently barred, exclusionary paragraph [all other provisions and rules remain in effect]

Such a person will be hereby released *from barred status as of the date that the bad acting named parties have paid their debt owed in its entirety and has demonstrated compliance with all legally binding agreed to provisions of any agreement reached between the injured and bad acting parties named here. Such a person will be included in a separate paragraph labeled REDEEMED [not innocent or blameless, but redeemed; we believe that a bad acting, unlawful, and otherwise immoral individual can be redeemed, however, such a person shall never carry the prestigious honor and title of being innocent or blameless. Further, such a REDEEMED person should still willingly submit to examinations concerning past wrong conduct to ensure the safety, wellbeing, and adherence to good conduct which is necessary for society to function well.]
At this occurrence, such person’s name can be removed from the list of barred persons by contacting us in writing: please allow 10-14 business days for the entity and site owner(s) to sweep the record to remove the person’s name from the list. *Compliance with all other agreements is required, even if removed from the barred list (i.e. a person can be resubmitted to the barred list if they later commit acts violative of policy and agreements).

Our Commitment to Pay Equity
We believe in pay equity and fairness in all business dealings. We will not accept contracts or relationships that grant higher pay or more favorable terms to males or non-Black individuals. There are no exceptions to this term. Expect us to sue promptly for violating our Terms should it be later discovered that financial terms offered to us were less favorable than terms offered to a male or non-black person. We believe in equity.
Vendors, businesses, and individuals that engage in this type of discrimination are described in the above section of parties barred from interacting with our site. [Please see above.] Therefore, all agreements reached must be in accord with our commitment to pay equity.
Further, you must agree that the remedy for such a breach and violation is to make whole, i.e. pay the difference plus any incidental damages, the party who has been wronged within 14 days of reasonable discovery of a violation. The remedy and restitution should be by the same method in which payment was initially made, unless a more reliable, faster, and less expensive method is then available, which guarantees that payment will be received. Failure to correct an error of this type within 14 days will result in litigation based on the violation of this agreement.
Consulting services are different from a request or proposal submitted by you. Consulting services have the following standard terms:
Consulting services begin at $250 USD per hour, minimum 1 hour, terms must be clearly and accurately communicated in your written proposal submitted to email@example.com, and your written request must be accepted by us before a relationship can begin.

Such depictions are explicitly and expressly banned. This standard is subjective: a confederate flag or a picture of Donald Trump can be reasonable known to be a threat to an African American or another person injured by policies allowed under that individual or symbol.
You are hereby notified that this site and its owner do not support Donald J. Trump or the display and use of the confederate flag. Using it is an offense to our community in which we serve and operate.
