NoFrames is a website operated by NOFRAMES LTD (We/Us). We are a limited company registered in Scotland under company number 634054 and have our registered office at 50 Richmond Street, Glasgow, the UK G1 1XP.
Changes to these terms
Changes to our website
We may update our site from time to time, and may change the content at any time. However, please note that any of the content on our site may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update it. We do not guarantee that our site, or any content on it, will be free from errors or omissions.
How our website works
NoFrames provides an online platform where users looking for hiring talent (Clients) and talent providers (Talents) can connect with each other.
Clients and Talents enter into a direct contract with each other in relation to a piece of work being commissioned (Piece) or freelance services (Services) being supplied in accordance with a brief posted by a Client in his/her challenge list or by a Talent (Brief). We are not a party to that contract so are not responsible if Client or Talent does not do what they have said they will do, or if the Piece is not or the Services are not as anticipated.
By accessing this site, you consent to receive messages via the site and calls and text messages from us to your mobile or other phone and to receive emails, if we consider this necessary for any purpose.
To register as a Talent you have to register and set up an account and providing your telephone and email address for our use and all other information which we believe to be necessary for the appropriate KYC checks to be undertaken. From time to time we may require you to provide other and/or further information in order to continue to be listed on our site as a Talent. By registering as a Talent, you confirm that you understand these terms and conditions.
To register as a Client you have to register and set up an account providing your telephone and email address and other information which we believe to be necessary for our use. From time to time we may require you to provide other and/or further information in order to continue to be listed on our site as a Client. By registering as a Client, you confirm that you understand these terms and conditions.
NoFrames operates to curate Talents and so reserves an absolute right to approve or reject any Talent or to delist any Talent already registered on the site for any reason whatsoever including in respect of the performance of contracts or Services, or the failure to provide information or to comply with these terms.
NoFrames also reserves the right to vet Clients and so reserves an absolute right to approve or reject any Client or to delist or block any Client already registered on the site for any reason whatsoever including in respect of the performance of contracts or the failure to provide information or to comply with these terms.
When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information.
Our site is made available to browse free of charge.
In consideration for providing access between Clients and Talents, we receive a fee from both streams. We take a fee from each Client and Talent which will be subtracted from the payments made by that party. The amount of that fee is equal to 5%.
All of our fees quoted are exclusive of VAT.
Talents who are listed with NoFrames can upload material. That material can be viewed without registration but if you are a Client who wants to engage with a Talent or post a Challenge you must first register with us and set up an account.
We do not guarantee that our site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. Access to our site is permitted on a temporary basis. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of our site without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason our site is unavailable at any time or for any period.
You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our site.
You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our site through your internet connection are aware of these terms and other applicable terms and conditions and that they comply with them.
Our site is run from the United Kingdom. We do not represent that content available on or through our site is appropriate or available in other locations. We may limit the availability of our site or any service or product described on our site to any person or geographic area at any time. If you choose to access our site from outside the United Kingdom, you do so at your own risk.

- Florist designer services

- Photographer services
- Videographer services
- Painting or drawing or other artworks including portraits
- Hairdresser services
- Make-up artist services

While we will try to assist in matching Clients to Talents, we will not take part in the interaction between Clients and Talents in relation to any Challenge, Piece or Services. We are not responsible for the performance of contracts by Creatives and have no control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever relating to the Piece commissioned, or Services provided or of any ratings provided by users of our site in respect of each other or of the price agreed to be paid by the Client for any specific Piece or Services.
We give no assurances about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the provision of any Piece or Services or as to the suitability of any Piece or Services in relation to any specific Challenge.
Clients and Talents may be subject to an extensive vetting process before they can register and during their use of the Service, including but not limited to a verification of identity and a comprehensive criminal background check. Clients and Talents hereby give consent to us to conduct background checks.
Although we may perform background checks, as outlined in more above, we cannot confirm that each Client and/or Talent is who they claim to be and therefore, cannot and do not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of identity or background check information.
Meeting and other interaction before commissioning
When interacting with people on our site or in real life you should exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety and property, just as you would when interacting with other persons whom you don’t know, for example, by arranging to meet each other at safe times of the day and in safe places.
We will not be liable for any false or misleading statements made by any Client or Talent.
In the event that prior to commissioning a Piece the Client wants a meeting with a Talent to discuss the commissioning of a Piece or the provision of Services, that meeting must take place in the offices or other business premises of the Client or in a public place agreed by the Talent.
The Talent shall be under no obligation to attend such a meeting. If the Talent agrees to attend, the Client shall pay to the Talent the reasonable expenses of the Talent in attending that meeting. NoFrames will take no fee on the payment of such expenses.
Commissioning, billing and payment policy
Pieces are commissioned in the following way once both Client and Talent are fully registered on the website.
- Client outlines its requirement on the website by posting a Challenge or contacts one or more Talents direct to discuss a possible order.
- Client selects the Talent or Talents he/she considers the best fit for his/her requirements.
- Client chats with the Talent to discuss more detail about what is required via the chat interface on the website. If Client wants to meet the Talent the provisions set out above will apply.
- Once the key terms including scope and timing for the production of the Piece or provision of Service and price (including any expenses) (Price) have been agreed, the Client puts forward a proposal which the Talent accepts. That creates the contract between the parties. The minimum Price is £10.
- Client pays an agreed deposit and the rest when the Piece is completed or Services have been provided. All payments by each Client will be plus our fee. We pay the Talent three business days after receipt of the relevant money from the relevant Client.
- We reserve the right, in our sole discretion (but not the obligation), to place on hold any payment, or refund or provide credits.
- All commissions in respect of any Piece, Services, or Challenges which are discussed on our website between any Client and any Talent must be made via the website and all payments in respect of each commission of a Talent by a Client by must be made via the website.
- Clients will be liable to pay any VAT which may be due on any payment to a Talent and on the payment of the fees and subscriptions to NoFrames. We will use best efforts to notify Clients of the applicability of VAT on any Piece commissioned or Services supplied and will produce appropriate VAT invoices for the Talent, for our fees and subscriptions.
- Talents are responsible for the payment of all taxes (including VAT, if applicable) required to be paid in respect of any sums paid to them by Noframes or by any Client.
- Payment can be made and received in any of the following currencies: US Dollar, Euro, GBP. The Client must pay in the same currency as the Talent receives payment.
In the event that we believe that you are in breach of any of our website or other rules, we reserve the right to keep all sums due to be paid to you until the issue is resolved to our reasonable satisfaction.
Commissioning again or hiring or employing
In the event that within a period of twelve months after a Client last communicated with or commissioned a Talent who the Client first found on our site the Client or any associate of that client commissions that Talent again, the Client and the Talent must either deal with each other via the site and paying our fee as normal or notify us and the Client pay our fee directly to us.
In addition should the Client or any associate of the Client hire or employ a Talent within 12 months after the Client last communicated with or commissioned that Talent, the Client, and the Talent shall notify NoFrames and the Client shall pay to NoFrames a finder’s fee of 15% of the annual sum to be paid to that Talent.
These provisions apply whether or not at the time of the subsequent commission hiring or employment the Client or the Talent is registered on our site.
Legal relationships, withholdings, status and client indemnity
Each Client assumes all liability for the proper classification of any Creative who provides a commissioned Piece for or Services to that Client including where relevant as part of a Challenge as an independent contractor or an employee or agency worker based on applicable legal guidelines.
It is NoFrames’ intention and understanding that each Talent who is commissioned to create and/or deliver a Piece for a Client is an independent contractor operating a business or his or her or its own behalf.
It is NoFrames’ further intention and understanding that each Client who is commissioned to receive a Piece or get a Service provided by a Talent is an independent consumer or a business.
It is NoFrames’ further intention and understanding that each Talent will have a contract with each relevant Client for whom they provide Services or supply a Piece whether or not as part of a Challenge by virtue of which the Talent is available to work for the Client which has the effect that the status of the Client is that of a client or customer of a profession or business undertaking carried on by the Talent and that consequently, each Talent is not an “agency worker” for the purposes of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010.
Each Client and each Talent acknowledges that NoFrames does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control a Talent’s work or the contents or appearance or any other aspect of a Piece or Services in any manner.
NoFrames does not set a Talent’s work hours or location of work. NoFrames will not provide any equipment, labour or materials needed.
Neither NoFrames nor the website is an employment service, employment business or employment agency and NoFrames is not the employer of any Talent.
Therefore, NoFrames is not liable for any tax or withholding, including but not limited to National Insurance, employer’s liability, social security, PAYE or other payroll withholding tax in connection with a Client’s commissioning of a Talent.
Each Client agrees to indemnify NoFrames from any and all claims, liabilities and reasonable costs arising from or in connection with:
- a Talent commissioned by that Client being misclassified as an independent contractor or employee or agency worker
- NoFrames being incorrectly held to be an employer or joint employer of a Talent commissioned by that Client or
- any other relevant third-party claims under any employment-related laws, such as those relating to employment termination, employment discrimination, harassment or retaliation, as well as any claims for overtime pay, sick leave, holiday or vacation pay, retirement benefits, worker’s compensation benefits, unemployment benefits or any other employee benefits arising in connection with the commissioning by that Client of any Talent.
Additional rules regarding the provision of services by Talents
Unless otherwise agreed between the Creative and the Talent in respect of any specific Services or Challenges, the Talent shall be free to provide Services from any location that the Talent thinks fit and at any time of day that the Talent thinks fit.
The Talent shall be entitled to substitute another suitable Talent to provide all or part of the Services.
In the event that the Talent and Client agree that the Talent shall provide some of the Services at the Client’s premises, the Client shall ensure that the Talent is given access to any collective facilities and amenities which are available to the Client’s staff on no less favourable terms.
Intellectual property rights: commissioning
Unless otherwise specifically agreed in the contract between the Client and the Talent, the Talent retains copyright in all original Pieces produced by that Talent and of the output of any Services supplied but grants to Client from the later of both the Client and the Talent confirming that the Piece has been completed or the Services supplied and the Price is paid in full a perpetual royalty-free license to use the same for all of the purposes agreed upon commissioning.
