Cayman Freelancer Policies

Last modified: July 16, 2014. Cayman Freelancers reserves the right to change the Guidelines & Policies at any time.

1. Identity and freelancer profile

The Cayman Freelancers community is made up of professionals from the Cayman Islands whom are legally able to work from and within the Cayman Islands. To maintain a high-quality workplace for all Cayman Freelancersers, identity information associated with an Cayman Freelancers User Account must be real and verifiable.

  • Freelancer profiles must accurately represent the freelancer’s experience, skills, and personal information.

  • Profile photos should be clear and appropriate for a professional, global community. Logo, clip art, group pictures, or heavily digitally manipulated pictures are prohibited however Avatars may be used to keep identity private in the community

  • One account per user. Accounts should not be shared or duplicated in any way.

  • Attempting to mislead by falsely implying a relationship with Cayman Freelancers or another company is not allowed.

  • Sharing contact information such as email, phone number, BBM, Whats App, or Skype ID in profile is allowed however, we encourage all users to utilize the chat feature from the site to ensure that you receive your appropriate feedback

  • Any offer of services that is spammy, illegal, or inappropriate under the Cayman Islands Laws in nature is prohibited.

2. Job Applications

Successful job applications are complete, accurate, and professional. Applications should be sent only to projects for which a freelancer has the skills and ability to complete successfully. They must be written in English and include a summary created specifically for the job—“cut-and-paste” letters with little or no relevance are considered spam.

The following should not be included in a job application:

  • Any offer of services for the sole purpose of building good feedback.

  • Any offer of illegal activity or services that would violate the intellectual property rights, copyrights or terms of service of another service, product or website.

  • Content that is offensive or contains false or defamatory remarks.

3. Payments

Payments for job / contracts will be made by the Client directly to the Freelancer. Cayman Freelancers is not involved in the payment transaction between Client and Freelancer. Cayman Freelancers is not responsible for setting payment terms, collecting or ensuring payments. The parties need to reach an agreement on the pricing and the payment terms prior to the finalization of any job / contract.

4. Feedback

Feedback that is honest and objective contributes to a vibrant and productive workplace. The best feedback focuses on the facts, while providing helpful information to both the recipient and the community as a whole.

We do monitor, censor, or investigate feedback. On some occasions, we may delete ratings and feedback found to violate our User Agreement or the content guidelines below. Attempts to falsify feedback, manipulate, or coerce another user by threatening negative feedback are strictly prohibited, as is any offer to sell or buy services in exchange for positive feedback.

Feedback containing the following types of content may be removed or edited:

  • Spam, advertising or other commercial content

  • Content that endorses illegal activity

  • Content that personally identifies another user

  • Political, religious, or social commentary rather than a genuine comment regarding the work experience

  • Profane, vulgar, obscene, slanderous, libelous, threatening or discriminatory language, or adult material

5. Tracking time on Cayman Freelancers

For hourly contracts, freelancers must track their time using the Time Sheet. This allows them to accurately log hours which are in turn covered by the Cayman Freelancers Guarantee. All logged time must be:

  • Honest and accurate

  • Completed by the hired individual

  • Related to the completion of that contract

  • Approved by both parties
