East First Consulting may, in its sole discretion, terminate or suspend the User’s access to all or part of East First Consulting.com, for breach of the terms of this Agreement, or any conduct by the User which East First Consulting, in its sole discretion, considers to be unacceptable. The terms of this Agreement will continue to apply in perpetuity until terminated by either the User or East First Consulting without notice at any time for any reason. In the event this Agreement is terminated, the restrictions regarding the materials appearing on East First Consulting.com, Affiliates, and any linked third-party website and the representations and warranties, indemnities, and limitation of liabilities set forth in this Agreement shall survive any such termination.

38.   Term; Termination and Suspension.

A.   This Agreement will become effective upon the User’s first visit to the Site and for the duration of the User’s visit or use of the Site. The terms of this Agreement will continue to apply in perpetuity until terminated. Unless both the User and East First Consulting agree otherwise in writing, either party may terminate the contract represented by this Agreement in our sole discretion, at any time, without explanation, upon written notice. In the event the User properly terminates the contract represented by this Agreement, the User’s Account is automatically terminated and (i) East First Consulting will continue to perform those services necessary to complete any open transaction between the User and another Member; and (ii) the User will continue to be obligated to pay any amounts accrued but unpaid as of the date of termination to East First Consulting for any Site Services and to any Member and Member Services.

B.   Without limiting East First Consulting’s other remedies, East First Consulting may issue a warning, or temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate the User’s access, Account or a Job, and refuse to provide any or all Site Services to the User if: (a) the User breaches the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement; (b) East First Consulting suspects or becomes aware that the User has provided false or misleading information to East First Consulting; or (c) East First Consulting believes in its sole discretion that the User’ actions may cause legal liability for the User, other Users, Members, Clients or for East First Consulting or are contrary to the interests of the Site or the East First Consulting user community. Once indefinitely suspended or terminated, the User must not continue to use the Site under the same Account, a different Account, or reregister under a new Account.

C.   Without limiting East First Consulting’s other remedies, if the User engages in actions or activities that circumvent the East First Consulting Site or otherwise reduce fees owed East First Consulting under this Agreement, the User must pay East First Consulting for all fees owed to East First Consulting and reimburse East First Consulting for all losses and costs (including any and all East First Consulting employee time) and reasonable expenses (including attorney fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees. In addition, violations of this Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions.

D.   East First Consulting will notify the User if East First Consulting cancels the User’s Account, unless in our judgment giving notice would cause a risk of further violation or damages. However, East First Consulting will notify the User that the User’s Account will be canceled if the law requires such notification. The User’s acknowledges and agrees that the value, reputation and goodwill of the Site depend on transparency of Member Account status to all Members, including the Clients and other Members who are participating in Jobs with the User. The User therefore agree as follows: IF EAST FIRST CONSULTING SUSPENDS OR TERMINATES THE USER’S ACCOUNT OR JOB, EAST FIRST CONSULTING HAS THE RIGHT BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION TO (1) NOTIFY OTHER MEMBERS ENGAGED IN ACTIVE JOBS WITH THE USER TO INFORM THEM OF THE USER’S SUSPENDED OR TERMINATED ACCOUNT OR JOB STATUS, AND (2) PROVIDE THEM WITH SUMMARY REASONS FOR THE ACTION.

E.   When the User’s Account is terminated for any reason, the User will no longer have access to data, messages, files and other material the User keeps on the Site. If practicable, East First Consulting will retain this information along with all your previous posts and proposals for a period of one year from the date of termination, to give the User ample time to institute an appeal our decision. If the User appeals our decision through that process within one year, East First Consulting will retain the User’s information until such dispute is resolved. If the User fails to appeal East First Consulting’s decision within one year, East First Consulting may delete the User’s information including data, messages, files and other material the User keep on the Site.
