which are defined as follows:
- "Freelance Advisors" are individuals who, as independent contractors, use the Finish First Platform to and schedule work with Clients to provide advisory services for fantasy sports. Freelance Advisors are not employees of Finish First, nor does Finish First contract with Freelance Advisors to provide services to Finish First. Freelance Advisors’ use of the Finish First Platform does not limit their ability to provide services for any person or entity.
- "Clients" are entities that contract with Finish First to use the Finish First Platform to identify and schedule Freelance Advisors to provide advisory services for fantasy sports. Finish First does not provide any services to Clients; rather, Clients merely use the Finish First Platform to schedule consultations with Freelance Advisors.
Depending on which of the above Platform-User categories you fall into, certain portions of this Agreement, as designated, apply to you but not to other categories of Platform Users; and certain portions of this Agreement may apply to other categories of Platform Users but not to you.
You are advised that Finish First may amend this Agreement at any time and will be effective upon publication on the Site. Your continued use of the Finish First Platform after the Effective Date of a revised version of this Agreement constitutes your acceptance of all terms including revised terms.
Certain features of the Finish First Platform may be subject to additional terms that will be posted on the Finish First Platform in connection with such features. All such additional terms are incorporated by reference into this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the additional terms and any provision in this Agreement, the additional terms will prevail, but only with respect to the Services to which the additional terms apply.

If the appointment is cancelled within the 24 hours preceding the appointment time, you will not receive a refund, but may reschedule an appointment at another time, for no additional fee.

Clients pay Finish First directly on The Platform. Freelance Advisors will in turn be paid 80% of the Client’s fee once the respective services are performed, except in the case of memberships.
