You also acknowledge, agree, and understand that Job Seekers are solely responsible for determining, and have the sole right to determine, which Projects to accept; the time, place, manner, and means of providing any Job Seeker Services; the type of services they provide; and the price they charge for their services or how that pricing is determined or set. You further acknowledge, agree, and understand that: (i) you are not an employee of Hire Me, and you are not eligible for any of the rights or benefits of employment (ii) Hire Me will not have any liability or obligations, including under or related to Service Contracts and/or Job Seeker Services for any acts or omissions by you or other Users; (iii) Hire Me does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control any Job Seeker or Job Seeker Services and does not dictate the performance, methods or process Job Seeker uses to perform services; (iv) Hire Me does not provide Job Seekers with training or any equipment, labor, tools, or materials related to any Service Contract; (vii) Hire Me does not provide the premises at which Job Seekers will perform the work.
