The delivered work shall be considered a work for hire under the U.S. Copyright Act.

All transfer and assignment of intellectual property to Buyer shall be subject to full payment for the Gig and the delivery may not be used if payment is cancelled for any reason.
For removal of doubt, in custom created work (such as art work, design work, report generation etc. the delivered work shall be the exclusive property of Buyer, and Seller assigns all rights, title and interest in the delivered work. Some Gigs including for custom created work charge additional payments through Gig Extras for a Commercial Use License.

If you intend to use it for any charge or other consideration, or for any purpose that is directly or indirectly in connection with any business, or other undertaking intended for profit, you will need to buy the Commercial Use License through a Gig Extra and will have broader rights that cover your business usage.
For Voice Over Gigs, when the work is delivered and subject to payment, the Buyer is purchasing basic rights which in essence means that the Buyers have agreed to pay a one-time fee allowing them to use the work forever and for any purpose except for radio, commercials, television and internet commercial spots. If you intend to use the VoiceOver to promote a product and/or service with the exception of paid marketing channels), you will need to purchase the Commercial Rights (Buy-Out) through Gig Extra.

Feedback in the way of reviews provided by Buyers when an order is completed is an essential part of the Apexlancer.com rating system. Buyer reviews demonstrate the Buyer's overall experience with the Sellers and their services. Therefore, Buyers are encouraged to communicate to the Seller any concerns they might have regarding the gig they order.
To prevent any misuse of the Site Feedback system, all feedback reviews must come from legitimate sales created and delivered exclusively through the Apexlancer.com platform.
Purchases arranged which are determined to be to artificially enhance Seller ratings or to abuse the Apexlancer.com platform with purchases from additional accounts will result in a permanent suspension of all related accounts.
Feedback comments given by Buyers are publicly displayed on Seller's Gig page. Buyers have the option not to include a comment, but still rate the service.
Work Samples are the delivered images and videos sent to a buyer in a delivery message. Work Samples are added to a Seller's Live Portfolio on their Gig page if the Buyer selects to publish the Work Sample while providing a public feedback review.
To Withhold the delivery of any services, files, or information required to complete the Gigs which were ordered with the intent to gain favorable reviews or additional services is totally prohibited.
