**Suppliers** Do not contact us outside Elance, even by email or telephone, until we engage you as a supplier and give you our preferred contact details. I appreciate that researching our firm and discovering how to contact us directly shows that you are motivated salespeople: However, we are all busy people; the most effective way for us to communicate with you is through Elance.
**Payment** We prefer to buy and pay through Elance. If you are a new provider on Elance, we will not pay you in advance but we are happy to use Elance's escrow scheme.
**About us** We are a research consultancy in England. We're long-time users of Elance and some of our consultants and permanent suppliers started working with us on Elance.
