RELATIONSHIPS.

The Website contains features that enable you to do, among other things, the following:

 

  • Access regulatory documents, browse and download regulatory document related to the food industry;
  • Upon creating an Account, Registered Users access a multi-screen dashboard where each, according to the Account type, can request services, provide services or communicate with FoodSight’s team or other Users once they enter into a Service Agreement.

Once the Client and the Expert agree on the provision of services, a Project is initiated and both enter automatically into a Service Agreement. The description of services, timeline, phases, deliverables and fees/cost that both the Client and the Expert agree on form an integral part of the project details and are binding to both the Client and the Expert. Accordingly, Users when defining a Project and before entering into a Service Agreement, should be clear as to divide, if needed, a Project into clear phases and attribute for each clear, separate and independent Deliverable. Each Deliverable will have its own cost as to allow FoodSight to receive Payments from Client accordingly.

You should be aware that the timeline for the implementation of a Project should take into consideration that an Expert will only initiate its work when the Payment for the next Deliverable is executed to FoodSight, as a guarantee of Users’ rights under these terms. Nevertheless, the Client while requested to pay immediately for the next Deliverable, is granted a grace period to make the payment. Further details on this are mentioned in the below Payment terms.

The usual cycle of service is mainly as follows:

 

  • Submitting a request: the Client submits a Request for Proposal (RFL) to FoodSight from his Account when signed in. The RFP should be clear when describing the services and expectations as to allow any Expert to prepare an Offer accordingly.
  • Submitting an Offer: Once FoodSight receives the RFP, it chooses up to three Experts whose backgrounds meet the Client services’ requirements (and based on the experts selection procedure set by FoodSight) and ask them to submit each an Offer. The Offer should clearly state the time needed, fees, description of work and Deliverable(s). If the cost requested by an Expert is considered excessive by FoodSight, we have the right to ask for a decrease of the cost. If the Expert refuses this decrease, FoodSight can discard his/her Offer.
  • Offer terms that experts should abide by:
    • One project not exceeding 1 month should be equal to up to 3 milestones/offer and budget for each milestone should be mentioned in the offer.
    • One project exceeding 1 month (up to 3 months) should be equal to up to 5 milestones/offer and budget for each milestone should be mentioned in the offer.
    • If experts’ milestones are (reasonably) exceeding 5 milestones – up to 10 milestones: FoodSight recommends to client to divide project into 2 separate requests.
    • If experts’ milestones are (reasonably) exceeding 10 milestones – up to 15 milestones: FoodSight recommends to the client to divide the project into 3 separate requests.
    • If FoodSight sees that the client’s request (from the start before sending it to the experts) might be of more than 5 milestones, FoodSight suggests to the client to divide the request into 2 projects handled separately.

 

  • Clarification and amendment of RFP: The Expert may request FoodSight a clarification of any part of the Request for Proposal. The Client will provide via FoodSight, in a timely manner and at no cost, the inputs and relevant information as to allow the Expert to submit his final Offer. Any request for clarification will be sent using the online tools we are offering on our Site. Should the Client consider it necessary to amend the RFP as a result of a clarification, he shall send an inquiry and mention the additional clarification. Accordingly, the Experts submit to FoodSight a modified Offer.
  • Evaluating Offers: Once submitted, FoodSight will review the received Offers, and decide on the most convenient one to be forwarded to the Client for approval. When deciding on the most convenient Offer, FoodSight takes into consideration criteria such as quality of work, timeline and fees.
  • Drafting a Proposal: once FoodSight decides on an Offer, it prepares accordingly a Proposal to which it adds its Commission before sending to the Client for approval or comments.
  • Commencement of Expert’s Services: Once the Client agrees to the Proposal, a Service Agreement is automatically set to govern the Project (Terms & services clauses govern all requirements). Accordingly, the Client and the Expert enter into direct communication on this Site. Clients and Experts are to communicate exclusively on the Site for the purposes of the Project and are not allowed to share personal contact information; otherwise this would be considered a breach of these Terms.

In fulfilling his/her obligations under these Terms, the Expert undertakes to perform the services in compliance with the highest ethical and professional standards. In addition, Users undertake to act in good faith in their mutual relationship and towards FoodSight and to adopt all reasonable measures to ensure the realization of the Project’s required services and payments.

 

PAYMENT & ESCROW SERVICES.

12.1 Payments.

 

  • Once the Client and Expert enter into a Service Agreement, the Client shall make the first Payment to FoodSight. The First payment is equal to the amount of the next Deliverable. Thereafter, the Client is requested to make a Payment at the beginning of each Phase under the Project.
  • The Client benefits from three (5) working days grace period to pay the fees, upon project initiation. The Expert will not initiate work on the next phase until FoodSight receives the associated Payment.
  • In case of a milestone initiation, the Client benefits from (3) working days grace period to pay the fees. During this period, the project will be put on hold, the Client will be reminded to submit the fees and the Expert will be notified to hold on starting the work on the next milestone. After this period, the Client is granted (3) additional working days to submit the payment. If Client fails to do so, the project is automatically canceled, notifying both Expert & Client, and applying the escrow penalty terms mentioned below to the Client’s account.
  • Once the Expert submits all Deliverables under the Project, and the Client approves them, FoodSight will release the funds to the Expert’s account. A ten (10) working days delay time in transferring funds from FoodSight to Expert might occur (unless otherwise agreed on in written by FoodSight and the Expert).
  • You take note that our Services are commission-based. The Commission will be added to the amount set by the Expert and is included in the Proposal shared with the Client.
  • In the first phase of launching its Site, FoodSight will be accepting Payments in cash or bank transfers or via OMT/BoB. In a later phase of launching the Site (beta), FoodSight offers you the possibility to pay either online or in cash or bank transfers or via OMT/BoB.
  • You acknowledge that FoodSight will be the intermediary in receiving and sending Payments and funds; it receives funds from the Client, holds them in its accounts then upon completion of Project it send funds to Expert’s Account after deducting its Commission. Users cannot make money transactions to one another under these Terms and on this Site.
  • Users are requested to settle any Payment in US dollars. In case the User (Client) or FoodSight were incapable of settling the fees in US dollars due to force majeure or an evident shortage crisis in the market, it is possible, exceptionally and temporary, to settle the agreed amounts in Lebanese pounds as per the maximum market price determined by the special unit at the directorate of Monetary Operations in the Lebanese Central bank.
  • The Payment schedule and conditions should be specified in the approved final Proposal. If you do not abide to these deadlines and obligations, you are violating these Terms.

12.2 Escrow.

In case you do not honor your obligation under these Terms, you agree to the following provisions:

 

  • If you are a Client and in case you enter into a project, you cannot retrieve in the middle of its execution by any means. In case under any major circumstances this case happened, you should fill a termination notice form and submit it to FoodSight before a 10 working days period. FoodSight is entitled to add a penalty consisting of an amount totaling 10% of the Project’s total amount. The penalty is added to the next due Payment if the project is resumed later on, or transferred to FoodSight separately.
  • If you are an Expert and breach any requirement under the Project, FoodSight shall be entitled to apply a penalty and retrieve from your account an amount totaling 10% of the Project total amount. FoodSight reserves its right to request other amounts in case your action or inaction has caused it additional prejudices and losses.
  • If the Expert fails to provide the Client with the services agreed on in the approved Proposal and subsequent Service Agreement, even after two iterations not exceeding a total of four working days, FoodSight commits to wave to the Client an amount equal to the last Payment. Neverthless, such a decision to refund a Client shall be made at the sole discretion of FoodSight whereas, after investigation, it becomes evident, based on the available information and documents, that the Expert did not comply with the Project’s requirements.
  • If you are an Expert, you are not allowed to cancel or leave a project by any means. In case under any major circumstances this case happened, you should fill a termination notice form and submit it to FoodSight before a 10 working days period.

FoodSight is entitled to request a penalty consisting of an amount totaling 10% of the Project’s total amount to be paid by the Expert to FoodSight. In this case as well, FoodSight commits to wave to the Client an amount equal to the last Payment.

12.3 Escrow Accounts.

Depending on your needs and the applicable escrow instructions, FoodSight will establish and maintain two different types of Escrow Accounts:

 

  • Client Escrow Account: After entering into a Service Agreement, the first time a Client makes a payment for a Project, FoodSight will establish and maintain a “Client Escrow Account” to hold funds for the Client to use so to make Payments for Projects, to receive refunds in connection with Projects, and to make other types of payments to FoodSight.
  • Expert Escrow Account: After entering into a Service Agreement, the first time an Expert uses the Site to receive Payment for a Project, FoodSight will establish and maintain an “Expert Escrow Account” for Experts to receive Payments for Projects.

 

SUSPENSION OF PAYMENT

FoodSight shall suspend any Payment to the Expert in case the latter fails to perform any or all of its obligations under these Terms and subsequent Service Agreements. FoodSight will suspend Payments provided that a notice of suspension will be sent to the Expert. The notice (i) shall specify the nature of the failure, and (ii) request the Expert to remedy such failure within two iterations within a total period not exceeding four working days after receipt by the Expert of such notice of suspension. The remedy that FoodSight will apply in this situation, and in case the project has been resumed after this, is to deduct a 10% penalty fees from the total amount of the Project as provided in these Terms.
