Sessions and Financial Terms
Sessions and Financial Terms for Interviewers
If you (as an Interviewer) have received a Session request from a Member, you will be required to either confirm or reject the request within 24 hours of when the request is made (as determined by Prept in its sole discretion) or the request will be automatically cancelled. When a Session is requested with you via the Site, Application and Services, we will share with you information that the Seeker included in the request which may include but is not limited to the first name and last initial of the Seeker, industry of interest, type of mock interview requested and type of job, so that you can view this information before confirming or rejecting the Session. When you confirm a Session request, Prept will send you an email or message via the Application confirming such scheduled online meeting.
The amount due and payable by a Seeker relating to a Session time with you is referred to as a “Session Fee”. Session Fees are made available to Seekers, in U.S. dollars and in a price per thirty minutes (30) format (the “Session Fee Rate”). Please note that it is Interviewers, and not Prept, which set all Session Fee Rates.

You agree to pay Prept all Session Fees and Service Fees due in connection with any Session. In order to initiate a Session, you understand and agree that Prept reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to obtain a pre-authorization of your credit card or charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one U.S. dollar ($1), in order to verify your credit card. The charged amount will be removed when the pre-authorization period expires. Upon confirmation to you that a Session has been scheduled, Prept will process and collect the Session Fees and Service Fees payable in accordance with these Terms and the terms of the Listing. The Session Fees and Service Fees are for the full booked session time duration and cannot be pro-rated based on the minute. It is the Members’ responsibility to ensure that the duration of the Session matches with the booked session time paid for by the Seeker.

Legal Prohibitions and Penalties
U.S. federal securities laws and the laws of most jurisdictions worldwide generally prohibit "insider trading" or the purchase or sale, or the recommendation of a purchase or sale, of any stock, bond, option or other security by a person while he or she is in possession of "material nonpublic information" (sometimes also referred to as "inside information") about the security or its issuer. The use of such material nonpublic information to avoid losses is no less a violation than the use of such information to generate profits.
Regulators have treated the detection and prosecution of insider trading violations as an enforcement priority, and violations have also been the subject of private legal actions. U.S. federal and state securities laws provide for criminal and civil penalties for violations of the insider trading laws. Sanctions or penalties include jail sentences, civil injunctions, fines for the person who committed the violation of up to three times the profit gained or loss avoided as a result of the unlawful trades, whether or not the person fined actually traded, and fines for the person's employer or other controlling person.
A person can be subject to some or all of these penalties as a "tipper" if he or she discloses material nonpublic information to another person who then trades while in possession of such information. A person can incur "tipper-tippee" liability if his or her disclosure of information breaches a duty owed to the issuer or the source of the information. A tipper can be liable even if he or she does not personally receive a direct monetary benefit from the ensuing trading activity.
It is also important to understand that the prohibitions on disclosing or misusing information do not apply only to "insiders" such as officers, directors, employees and significant shareholders of an issuer. The prohibitions can also apply to "outsiders" such as consultants, accountants, lawyers and underwriters who have a duty of trust or confidence to the source of the material nonpublic information. In addition, the prohibitions can also apply to persons with a family relationship to the source of the information, and to persons with any other relationship of trust or confidence with the source (such as when people have a history, pattern or practice of sharing confidences).
You are prohibited from disclosing any nonpublic information in breach of any duty of trust or confidence to the source or subject matter of the information.
Information is "material" if there is a substantial likelihood that a reasonable investor would consider it important in deciding whether to purchase, sell or hold a security or other financial instrument. It is also information that, if disclosed, is reasonably likely to affect the market price of the security or instrument. Information may be material even if it relates to speculative or contingent events. Information that is material with respect to a security is also likely to be material with respect to options and other related derivatives.
Information that is material usually includes, but is not limited to: dividend changes, earnings estimates, changes in previously released earnings estimates, significant merger or acquisition discussions or agreements, major litigation or regulatory investigations, regulatory approvals or disapprovals, and extraordinary management developments.
Because the determination of whether information is "material" involves questions of judgment (that may be second-guessed by a regulator who has the benefit of hindsight), you should refrain from disclosing nonpublic information if you have any questions about whether the information might potentially be considered material.
Information is nonpublic until it has been effectively communicated to the market place or made widely available to the general public such as by means of a press release carried over a major news services, a public filing made with a regulatory agency, or material sent to security holders or potential investors (such as a proxy statement or prospectus).
It is sometimes difficult to know whether information has been made public. The fact that nonpublic information is reflected in rumors in the marketplace does not mean that the information has been publicly disseminated. Even when some information regarding a matter has been made public, other aspects of the matter may remain nonpublic.
Prept respects copyright law and expects its users to do the same. It is Prept’s policy to terminate in appropriate circumstances the Prept Accounts of Members who infringe or are believed to be infringing the rights of copyright holders.
