These Vendor Terms of Service (“Terms”) are a legally binding agreement between Workrise Solutions LLC (“Workrise”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) and you, ( “User”, “you”, or “your”).  The Terms apply to your access or use of Workrise’s offering of services available through its platform which will enable you to provide certain vendor data related to procurement, health and safety, insurance, regulatory and other information in your capacity as an individual or entity that can form legally binding contracts under applicable law (“Vendor”).  This information may be shared with Workrise’s end-clients and customers (“Client”) and used in its vendor and management processes and other platform offerings (“Services”).

By accessing our platform (the “Platform”), whether through Workrise’s website or a mobile application that can be downloaded (“App”), with a Workrise account login, you hereby agree and accept on behalf of Vendor to be bound by all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement. If accessing our platform via the App, you agree to our mobile application terms of use policy, which can be found at https://www.workrise.com/security/app-tos.  Workrise reserves the right at its discretion to change the terms of this Agreement.  Any amended terms to this Agreement (“Supplemental Terms”) are effective as of the date posted on Workrise’s Platform.  Your continued access and use of the Workrise Platform after the posting of any amended Agreement shall constitute your acceptance of, and agreement to be bound by, any such changes.  If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, or any Supplemental Terms of this Agreement, do not use our Services.

1.5 User Responsibilities. You are solely responsible for providing accurate information and reporting (“Vendor Content”) to the Platform.  Workrise shall have no liability in your relationship with Client.  You have the sole responsibility for managing your relationship with Client, providing the information required by Client, and complying with Client’s safety and vendor standards.  You agree that (a) the Services depend on the accurate communication of Vendor Content, (b) you bear responsibility and liability for the completeness and accuracy of the information that you directly or indirectly provide, and (c) Workrise will not assume any responsibility for, or undertake to verify, the accuracy or completeness of the Vendor Content.  You agree to cooperate with Workrise in all matters relating to the Services, including providing direction, information, approvals, authorizations, or decisions that are reasonably necessary for us to provide Services.  You also agree to receive communications that in our discretion are deemed necessary to provide the Services.

2. Content Information  

2.1 Our Services may allow you and other end-users to upload, store, and share Vendor Content, which may include company profiles, reviews, messages, text, and media (collectively, “User Content”).  As part of our Services, Vendor may have the option to make any of its User Content publicly available to be seen by other Workrise Clients and end-users.

2.4 Enforcement of this Section 2 is solely at Workrise’s discretion, and failure to enforce this section in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce it in other instances.  This Section 2 does not create any right or private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation that the Services will not contain any content that is prohibited by these Terms or that objectionable material will be promptly removed after it has been posted.  You further acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such User Content, background check materials, or goods or services available on or through the Platform or Services.

6. Limitation of Liability

6.1 TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WORKRISE AND THE OTHER WORKRISE PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY—WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE—FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OR LOST PROFITS, EVEN IF WORKRISE OR THE OTHER WORKRISE PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

6.2 THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF WORKRISE AND THE OTHER WORKRISE PARTIES FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR OUR SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (I) THE TOTAL AMOUNT YOU SPENT ON YOUR BUSINESS DEALINGS WITH US DURING THE MOST RECENT TWELVE-MONTH PERIOD, OR (II) IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID US, THE AMOUNT OF $100.

6.3 THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 6 WILL NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OF WORKRISE OR THE OTHER WORKRISE PARTIES OR FOR ANY OTHER MATTERS IN WHICH LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. ADDITIONALLY, SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

6.4 Release. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU RELEASE WORKRISE AND THE OTHER WORKRISE PARTIES FROM RESPONSIBILITY, LIABILITY, CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND/OR DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN (INCLUDING CLAIMS OF NEGLIGENCE), ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO DISPUTES BETWEEN USERS AND THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF THIRD PARTIES. IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER WHO RESIDES IN CALIFORNIA, YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS UNDER CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542, WHICH PROVIDES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.”

7. Indemnification  

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Workrise and our subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of our respective officers, directors, agents, partners, and employees (individually and collectively, the “Workrise Parties”) from and against any losses, liabilities, claims, demands, damages, expenses or costs (“Claims”) arising out of or related to (a) your access to or use of the Services; (b) your User Content; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation, misappropriation, or infringement of any rights of another (including intellectual property rights or privacy rights); (e) your conduct in connection with the Services or (f) your products or services. You will promptly notify Workrise Parties of any third-party Claims, cooperate with Workrise Parties in defending such Claims, and pay all fees, costs, and expenses associated with defending such Claims (including attorneys’ fees). The Workrise Parties will have control of the defense or settlement, at Workrise’s sole option, of any third-party Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Workrise or the other Workrise Parties.

8. Applicable Law and Disputes  

8.1 Individual Claims. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, EXCEPT FOR (I) CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN SECTION 6.4, OR (II) TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW, DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND WORKRISE WILL BE RESOLVED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION, ANY OTHER KIND OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, OR BY JURY TRIAL.

8.1 Applicable Law.This Agreement, and any disputes directly or indirectly arising from or relating to this Agreement, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to principles of conflicts of law.  If any Claim is not subject to arbitration pursuant to Section 8, then the state and federal courts located in the County of Travis, Texas, will have exclusive jurisdiction. You and Workrise waive any objection to the venue in any such courts. If your local law requires that consumer contracts be interpreted subject to local law and enforced in the courts of that jurisdiction, this section may not apply to you only to the extent that local law conflicts with this section.

8.2 Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND WORKRISE TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH WE CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM EACH OTHER. ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU AND WORKRISE FROM SUING IN COURT OR HAVING A JURY TRIAL. YOU AND WORKRISE AGREE THAT ARBITRATION WILL BE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION, OR ANY OTHER KIND OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. WORKRISE AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY.

ALL CLAIMS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO AND ADMINISTERED BY JUDICIAL ARBITRATION & MEDIATION SERVICES (“JAMS”) PURSUANT TO ITS COMPREHENSIVE ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES THEN IN EFFECT (“JAMS RULES”) AND WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE ONE ARBITRATOR.

These Terms affect interstate commerce, and the enforceability of this Section will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq., to the extent permitted by law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms, and the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability.

8.3 Dispute with Third Parties. Workrise is not affiliated with any non-employee worker, buyer, or third-party service, and any dispute you have with any non-employee worker, vendor, customer, third-party service, or other third-party, including, without limitation, any other user of the Services, is directly between you and that third-party, and you irrevocably release Workrise from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with those disputes.  You will take reasonable precautions in all interactions with other users, particularly if you meet offline or in person, you assume all risk when engaging the services of any other user and in connection with using the Service, including but not limited to any risks associated with sharing confidential information with any other user.  Should you perform work as an independent contractor facilitated by Workrise for a third-party, you acknowledge that the third-party for whom you perform such work is the party ultimately responsible for paying you for that work. In such instance, you agree to hold Workrise harmless and release Workrise from any associated claims.

9. Confidentiality

As used in these Terms, “Confidential Information” means all confidential or proprietary information of a party (“Disclosing Party”) disclosed to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is either marked or designated as confidential or that a reasonable person would deem confidential or proprietary given the nature of the information and the circumstances under which it is disclosed. Except upon the consent of Disclosing Party, Confidential Information will include: (i) the terms and conditions in any Supplemental Terms or agreements executed with User; (ii) your User Content that is designated confidential; (iii) work commissioned; (iv) information about any actual or potential business, investment or trading decisions or transactions of any Client; and (v) any proprietary information of Workrise and Vendor. Confidential Information does not include any information that a Receiving Party can show: (A) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (B) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (C) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (D) is received from a third party without any duty or confidentiality obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; or (E) is designated as non-confidential by either Party.   Each Party agrees to treat, protect, and safeguard as proprietary and confidential any Confidential Information received by the Disclosing Party.
We invite you to review our privacy policies for details on how we manage your information and any other data we collect from you during your use of our Services. By sharing your content with us or utilizing our Services, both you and your Company acknowledge and agree that we will utilize your data in accordance with our privacy policies.

10. Miscellaneous

10.1 Wording. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Use of the word “including” will be interpreted to mean “including without limitation.”

10.2 Assignment. You may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior, written consent of Workrise. Workrise may, upon written notice to you, assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement: (i) to any of its Affiliates. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their permitted successors and assigns.

10.3 Force Majeure. Except with respect to failure to pay fees due under this Agreement, non-performance of either party will be excused to the extent that performance is rendered impossible by strike, fire, flood, disruption or unavailability of the internet, governmental acts, orders or restrictions, failure of suppliers, or any other reason where failure to perform is beyond the reasonable control and not caused by the negligence of the non-performing party.

10.4 Waiver. Workrise’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.

10.5 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision will be severed from the Agreement and all remaining provisions continue in full force and effect.

10.6 Entire Agreement. This Agreement (including all order(s) and any referenced and/or attached policies, documents and Exhibits) contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements and commitments with respect thereto. There are no other oral or written understandings, terms or conditions, and neither party has relied upon any representation, express or implied, not contained in this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the terms of an order and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall govern.
