The Interpreter acknowledges and agrees that ByLyngo does not provide the interpreting services to Client. Interpreters are not employees of ByLyngo but rather are independent contractors, acting on behalf of themselves (or possibly for an employer or through an agent) in providing ByLyngo-facilitated Interpretations to Client. Each Interpreter warrants that Interpreter holds all licenses (if any) required in Interpreter's location to provide interpreting services.

However, Interpreter agrees, for the benefit of ByLyngo and Client, that Interpreter will not accept opportunities for which Interpreter is, not actually qualified (even when ByLyngo's systems do not recognize this). Each Interpreter agrees that if after an Interpretation commences. Interpreter determines that Interpreter is not actually qualified for the Interpretation; the Interpreter will advise Client to ask for a replacement. Interpreter also agrees to return an Interpretation opportunity to the ByLyngo system for reassignment if the Interpreter learns in advance that Interpreter will not be available at the scheduled time for any reason.

Each Interpreter represents and warrants to ByLyngo and all Clients that Interpreter will provide interpreting services to Client (i) in accordance with customarily accepted professional interpretation principles and the standard of care that would be exercised by other professional interpreters on similar projects, and (ii) in compliance with all applicable professional codes of conduct such as industry associations to which Interpreter belongs and any cede of conduct that ByLyngo adopts. However, Clients have acknowledged to ByLyngo that interpretation is a subjective process that involves personal language preferences and is influenced by context culture and experience.

Interpreter understands that ByLyngo will collect evaluations from Clients regarding the interpreting services provided by Interpreter. Interpreter agrees that ByLyngo may collect, process, retain and distribute publicly any and all such evaluations and any information and opinions contained in or synthesized from such evaluations. Interpreter hereby grants ByLyngo a royalty-free, worldwide, sub-licensable, irrevocable license in and to such evaluations and information and opinions (to the extent of Interpreter's rights therein or ownership thereof).

ByLyngo has indicated to Client that ByLyngo will always assign Interpreter to a Client in Interpreter's language pair, if Interpreter brought Client to ByLyngo in "private mode." Client has also agreed with ByLyngo that Client cannot switch Interpreters in Interpreter's language pair, if Interpreter brought Client to ByLyngo in "private mode." However, Interpreter does understand that it could be impractical to legally enforce Client's commitment in this regard and agrees that ByLyngo has no responsibility to do so (and nor is ByLyngo responsible if Client re-registers with ByLyngo as a Client outside of Interpreter's "private mode").

ByLyngo encourages Interpreter to perform in-person Interpretations with Clients obtained through ByLyngo and likewise encourages Clients to offer such opportunities to ByLyngo's Interpreters However Interpreter agrees that if Interpreter performs an Interpretation for a Client obtained through ByLyngo outside of the ByLyngo Mobile Interpreting Platform, then ByLyngo shall be entitled to receive (and Interpreter will ensure that ByLyngo is paid) a fee equal to 33% of the total consideration paid for such interpreting services.
