1. The Complect Platform
The Complect Platform is an online platform that (1) connects financial regulatory compliance specialists (which, for purposes hereof, may include certain consulting firms) (“Specialist(s)”) with financial services firms (including, but not limited to, fund managers, broker-dealers, financial advisers, banks, and commodity traders) (“Business(es)”) that need assistance with short-term and long-term regulatory compliance projects, (3) permits negotiation of the scope and terms of engagement with Specialists, (4) assists in the retention or hiring process, (5) facilitates the completion of work, and (6) processes payments (collectively, the “Services”).
Once admitted to use the Site, Businesses can post a one-off project (each, a “Project”) or a full-time employment position (each, a “Full-Time Role”) through the Site and stipulate any required applicant prerequisites, such as, but not limited to, years of experience, industry and/or jurisdiction expertise, and other skills (collectively the “Applicant Prerequisites”). Specialist may apply for any Project or Full-Time Role posted on the Site where they meet the Applicant Prerequisites. A Business may then retain or hire a Specialist from the pool of Specialists that apply for a Project or Full-Time Role.
Businesses and Specialists will be responsible for agreeing between themselves the terms and conditions that will govern their relationship in relation to each Project or Full-Time Role. Complect is not a party to any agreement or dealings between Businesses and Specialists. However, Complect will be a third-party beneficiary of any such agreements between Businesses and Specialists.

The Project Fee will be automatically added to any payments made to the Specialist in relation to the Project and drawn from the Business’s credit card or bank account at the same time any payment is made to the Specialist.
Full-Time Fee. In the event a Business utilizes the Complect Platform to identify and hire a Specialist for a Full-Time Role (including in the event that a Specialist moves from a Project-based role to a Full-Time Role at the Business), the Business shall pay to Complect a fee (the “Full-Time Fee”) as set forth below; provided, that (a) the Business identified the Specialist via the Complect Platform, and (b) the Business successfully hires the Specialist for a Full-Time Role within twenty-four (24) months of first being presented with the Specialist via the Services. The Business will have two options for payment of the Full-Time Fee:
The Business shall pay Complect a one-off fee equal to fifteen percent (15%) of the Specialist’s first-year annual salary as stated in the employment agreement entered into between the Specialist and the Business. This fee will be payable on the start date as specified in the Full-Time Role posting on the Complect Platform. If the Specialist is terminated or resigns within the first ninety (90) days (excluding company lay-off or downsizing), Complect will refund any fees paid in full; or

If a Specialist on the Complect Platform is hired by a Business during the Exclusivity Period, such Business will be required to pay any applicable fees described herein to Complect even in cases where a Business may have viewed (or has been introduced to or otherwise identifies) the same Specialist on both the Complect Platform and through one (1) or more other recruiters for the same or a different Full-Time Role. Such fees may be wholly or partially refundable to the Business if the Business can demonstrate that it first identified the Specialist through a source other than the Complect Platform.
Buy-Out Fee. In the event a Business and a Specialist agree to work together on a full-time or part-time basis independent of the Complect Platform, provided (a) the Specialist was first identified by the Business via the Complect Platform, and (b) the Business successfully hires the Specialist for a full-time or part-time position within twenty-four (24) months of first identifying the Specialist via the Complect Platform, the Business will pay to Complect a fee equal to the greater of:
each, a “Buy-Out Fee”.
The Business shall notify Complect in writing of its intent to pay the Buy-Out Fee and provide Complect with a copy of the Off-Services Agreement within seven (7) days of entering into said agreement.
These are the only required costs of using the Site and the Complect Platform.
