SPAM POLICY

Spamming and abuse will no longer be tolerated. Yes there are consequences to spamming and abusing the site. For those who may think that you can get away with it, this shows that you will not. The best thing is not to spam or abuse the site. When you do so you risk being terminated. For those members who are actively reporting spam and abuse, we are listening and we are taking your reports seriously. Your efforts are having a positive effect. Fighting spam on any site takes the combined efforts of its members and the admins. The Association of International Schools  is committed to providing its members with a site that is truly dedicated to business networking and not spam abuse.

The Association of International Schools  Spam Monitor

Starting today all spam reports are now being automatically processed. Every member will now have a Spam Score. Everyone started the day with a spam score of 0. Members exceeding the maximum spam score will find their accounts automatically limited to a read only status. This means that member will only be able to read content. That member will not be allowed to post or add comments for 4 days for a first offense. For members who exceed the score a second time the account will be suspended for 8 days. Suspensions will be tracked and habitual offenders will be identified and permanently limited to read only.

The Association of International Schools  Talents

Buyer (customer) will rate the performance of the seller (talent) within 48 hours of completion of the assignment. If the rating is favorable all monies collected, less administrative fee and/or any affiliate commissions, will be released to the seller. If, however, the rating is unfavorable no monies will be released until the The Association of International Schools  Talents staff reveiws the issue. If the unfavorable rating has merit the task will be cancelled and seller will not be paid. The money held by The Association of International Schools  Talents will be refunded to the buyer, less a 5% administration and processing fee. You may not earn commissions from own product/services or any purchases you make.
If, however, after an assignment is completed the customer has not rated the completed job with 48 hours all funds will be released to the seller by default. Our fees are miniscule compared to what similar services charge for their service. Activation is a one time fee of just $9.95. Our service fee of 20% includes service, administration and advertising cost. This fee is deducted from the amount paid by your client.
Please do not add any promotional links to pages off the Talents site or private email. All communications must take place via talents. All payments will be concluded via The Association of International Schools  Payment Processor.
