  1. Unacceptable Completion of Stints

If, for any reason, StintMint or the Customer does not accept performance of a Stint you completed, you as a Minter will not be entitled to any reward for the Stint. In the event that rewards were already dispersed to you for an unacceptably completed Stint, we may recover them from you.  

 

  1. Minter Qualifications and Skills

By performing Stints on our platform you may accrue qualifications and skills, which we will grant in our discretion. We reserve the right to create, edit, or revoke your qualifications and skills at any time, for any reason or no reason at all. Because we do not discriminate on the basis of national origin, race, color, gender, sexual orientation, or any other class protected by law, you will have the same opportunity as any other Minter to achieve access to Stints as your qualifications and skills accumulate. As a Minter, if you believe that problematic test questions have affected your qualifications, skills, or rewards, you may provide well-supported contentions describing of problematic test questions via the Stint interface or via a ticket in our support system.

Whether you are a Customer or Minter, if you are provided with confidential information from anyone on our platform, you agree to protect the secrecy of the confidential information with the same degree of care you use to protect your own confidential information, but in no event with less than due care. You may not disclose or publish any such confidential or proprietary information, except as may be necessary for performance of a Stint. All information within a Stint on the StintMint platform should be considered as confidential even if the information is not expressly designated as confidential.

If and when you no longer need the confidential information you received, you must promptly return or destroy (as requested by whoever disclosed the information) all copies of the information that exist on the premises, systems, or other equipment you control. 

Because disclosing confidential information may cause irreparable harm, the disclosing party is entitled to seek injunctive relief for any breach or threatened breach of this term.

You and StintMint will then attempt to resolve the issue through either direct negotiation or mediation.

Awards must include the arbitrator's written reasoned opinion. You give up your right to trial by jury of any claim you may have against StintMint or that StintMint may have against you.

Such administrative claims include without limitation claims or charges brought before the Ministry of Human Resource Development. Nothing in this clause shall be deemed to preclude or excuse you from bringing an administrative claim before any agency in order to fulfill your obligation to exhaust administrative remedies before making a claim in arbitration, however, you waive the right to any monetary award through this such agency proceedings.
  4. Location of Arbitration. Any arbitration proceeding under this section will take place by default no more than 100 kilometers from the place where you reside, unless you reside outside India, in which case the arbitration will take place entirely electronically or telephonically. The arbitration may take place at any other location if agreed to by every party in writing. Regardless of its location, any party may opt to appear at the arbitration via live video or teleconference.
  5. Costs and Fees. The parties shall each bear their respective costs for legal representation at any such arbitration, except to the extent that attorney’s fees are explicitly provided for by law. The parties will split any initial administrative fee charged by the arbitrator, up to a maximum cost to you of five thousand rupees (INR 5,000). The cost of the arbitrator and court reporter, if any, shall initially be borne by us; however, the arbitrator shall have the discretion to award appropriate costs to the prevailing party, as provided by law, and/or to require the parties to split the costs associated with the arbitrator and/or court reporter.
