If you are asking if partners of one company can each sign up for a personal or individual account to get more business, this would violate the terms of those agreements and if the sites discovered this they could close down all of the accounts and ban each user from the site. However, you could enter into a "joint venture
" type agreement with each of your partners to where each parter would be their own separate entity and have a written contract with them that states they will contribute a percentage of earnings to the main bank account to share the profits from the jobs they get or that they contribute all of their earnings to the main account for all parties working together on any project (if that is your intent to collaborate on jobs that you bid).
If you are suggesting having others sign up for accounts for you to use and then paying them a percentage for allowing you to use their accounts so that you could increase your exposure and get more bids under multiple accounts, this would be something these sites would likely consider a violation of their terms of service.
The types of compensation systems you suggest would also likely be deemed to violate the policies if you are doing this to circumvent the rules of these sites. However, to be certain it would require a local business law attorney to actually review each of the site's policies and make a final determination as to whether or not the set up you propose could be modified in some way to place you within the terms and conditions of those sites.
