(a) the agreement between Employer and Technician including any job or project description, and other terms and conditions as communicated between Employer and Technician on the Website or otherwise, (b) these Terms of Service:
The Employer is responsible for managing, inspecting, accepting and paying for satisfactory services and deliverables in accordance with the job or project description in a timely manner.

ArtTechSpace is not a party to the dealing, contracting and fulfilment of any Project or Job between an Employer and a Technician. ArtTechSpace has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of any services performed or deliverables created, advertised, the truth or accuracy of project listings, the qualifications, background, or abilities of Registered Users, the ability of Technicians to perform services, the ability of Employers to pay for services, or that an Employer or Technician can or will actually complete a Project or Job. ArtTechSpace is not responsible for and will not control the manner in which a Technician operates and is not involved in the hiring, firing, discipline or working conditions of the Technician.
ii. Third-Party Beneficiary of Project Agreement.
Employer and Technician each acknowledges and agrees that the value, reputation, and goodwill of ArtTechSpace depend on their performance of their covenants and agreements as set forth in their Project Agreement. Employer and Technician therefore appoint ArtTechSpace as a third-party beneficiary of their Project Agreement for purposes of enforcing the obligations owed to, and the benefits conferred on, ArtTechSpace  by these Terms of Service. Employers and Technicians further agree that ArtTechSpace has the right to take such actions with respect to the Project Agreement or their Accounts, including without limitation, suspension, termination, or any other legal actions, as ArtTechSpace in its sole discretion deems necessary to protect the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Website.
