The Platform is a web-based communications platform that enables connections between Buyer Members seeking to obtain Services and Seller Members seeking to provide Services.
By registering for or using the Platform to offer, post, provide or otherwise communicate regarding Services, Seller Members represent and warrant that they, and their employees, agents, contractors and subcontractors who may perform work for them, are in all respects properly and fully qualified, experienced and duly licensed, certified, bonded and insured, as required by Buyer Members, Subvia, and/or applicable laws or regulations to which they may be subject in the jurisdiction(s) in which they offer their Services and in relation to the specific job they are performing. Seller Members otherwise agree to comply with all applicable laws, including, but not limited to, the California Consumer Privacy Act, in their use of the Platform and any personal information obtained from the Platform.
SUBVIA IS NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF PROVIDING SERVICES. Seller Members acknowledge, understand and agree that by creating/maintaining and/or using an Account on the Platform, they receive only the limited right and ability to use the Platform to identify and access persons interested in receiving Services and related tools, including, but not limited to, the ability to message those persons or schedule appointments that facilitate the provision of Services. Seller Members understand and agree that using the Platform does not guarantee that anyone will engage them for Services.
SUBVIA IS NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF BUYING SERVICES. Buyer Members acknowledge, understand and agree that by creating/maintaining and/or using an Account on the Platform, they receive only the limited right and ability to use the Platform to identify and access persons interested in providing Services. Buyer Members acknowledge, understand and agree that Subvia does not recommend or provide any specified Services, and Subvia does not supervise, scope, direct, control or monitor the work of Seller Members. SUBVIA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR ANY WORK PERFORMED BY SELLER MEMBERS AS REQUESTED BY BUYER MEMBERS IN ANY AND ALL RESPECTS. Seller Members who do provide Services are not Subvia employees, joint venturers, partners, representatives or agents; rather, Seller Members are independent contractors for all purposes.
Likewise, Subvia is not responsible for the performance or communications of and between its Platform Users, nor does it have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide or any other aspect whatsoever respecting the Services, Buyer Members or Seller Members, nor of the integrity, responsibility, competence, qualifications or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any User, or of any ratings or reviews provided by Users with respect to each other.
SUBVIA MAKES NO, AND DISCLAIMS ALL, WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, (INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR OF MERCHANTABILITY) OR REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE QUALITY, SUITABILITY, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS OR ACCURACY OF THE SERVICES REQUESTED OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY, OR THE COMMUNICATIONS OF OR BETWEEN, USERS IDENTIFIED THROUGH THE PLATFORM, WHETHER IN PUBLIC OR PRIVATE, VIA ON- OR OFF-LINE INTERACTIONS, OR OTHERWISE WHATSOEVER.
Subvia, as permitted by applicable laws, may obtain reports regarding Members, which may include a history of criminal convictions or sex offender registration, and reserves the right to limit, block, suspend, deactivate or cancel a Member’s Account based on the results of such a report in its sole discretion. As a Member, you agree and authorize Subvia to use your personal information, including your full name and date of birth, to conduct background checks, including obtaining the foregoing and/or related reports, relating to any User.
Users may access the Platform without registering for an Account. To access and participate in certain features of the Platform, you will need to create a password-protected Account and complete the Account Registration process. In order to register for an Account, you may be required to fill out a registration form, provide credit card information, agree to the Stripe Services Agreement (defined below), fill out payment information, fill out questionnaires, and/or any other action required by Subvia from time to time in its sole discretion. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during any Account Registration or request submission process and at all other times when you access or use the Platform, and to update information as appropriate. You are solely responsible for safeguarding your Subvia password(s). You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs on your Account, and you will immediately notify Subvia, in writing, of any unauthorized or improper use. SUBVIA IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES BY ANY PARTY CAUSED BY AN UNAUTHORIZED OR IMPROPER USE OF YOUR ACCOUNT. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may be liable for any losses sustained by Subvia or others due to such unauthorized or improper use. Your Account is nontransferable except with Subvia’s written permission in accordance with Subvia’s policies and procedures.
The Platform is based in the United States and access and use is presently provided for only Users located in the United States. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, Subvia may decide to offer the Platform outside the United States, and until it decides to do so, you agree that you will not access or use the Platform outside of the United States. You acknowledge that you may not be able to access all or some of the Platform outside of the United States and that access thereto may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Platform from outside the United States, you are responsible for compliance with any and all associated local laws.
Users may be subject to a review process before they can register for an Account and/or during their use of the Platform, which may include, but is not limited to, identity verification, right to work checks and criminal background checks, using third party services as appropriate (“Background Checks”). Although Subvia may perform Background Checks, Subvia has no obligation to do so, and in any event, cannot confirm that each User is who they claim to be, and Subvia cannot and does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of Background Check information.
When interacting with other Users, you should exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety, data and property, just as you would when interacting with other persons whom you do not know. Subvia will not be liable for any false or misleading statements made by Users of the Platform.
NEITHER SUBVIA, NOR ANY OF ITS PARENTS, AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS, INCLUDING THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, SHAREHOLDERS, AGENTS, INVESTORS, SUBSIDIARIES, ATTORNEYS, REPRESENTATIVES, INSURERS, EMPLOYEES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS (COLLECTIVELY, “AFFILIATES”) IS RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE CONDUCT, ACTS OR OMISSIONS, WHETHER ON-LINE OR OFF-LINE, OF ANY USER OF THE PLATFORM AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU HEREBY RELEASE SUBVIA AND AFFILIATES FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, CLAIMS, DEMANDS OR DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE PLATFORM.
All Users represent and warrant that:
· You are at least 18 years of age or older and are otherwise capable of entering into binding contracts;
· You will respect the privacy (including without limitation private, family and home life), property and data protection rights of other Users without the prior written consent of any relevant User;
· You will timely fulfill the commitments you make to other Users, communicate clearly and promptly through any chat thread, be present and/or available at the time(s) or under the circumstance(s) you solely agree upon with your Seller Member or Buyer Member, as the case may be, and only utilize the third party payment service provider specified or approved by Subvia to make or receive payment for Services coordinated through the Platform;
· You will act professionally, ethically and responsibly in your interactions with other Users;
· You will use your real name or business name and an up-to-date photo on your profile;
· When using or accessing the Platform, you will act in accordance with all applicable local, state, federal, provincial, national or international law or custom and always in the utmost good faith;
· You will not use the Platform for the purchase or delivery of alcohol, or any controlled or illegal substances or services;
· Except as fully and promptly disclosed, in writing, in advance to Subvia, you do not have any motivation, status or interest regarding the use of the Platform that Subvia may reasonably wish to know about other than to potentially transact business as contemplated by Subvia regarding its Platform, including without limitation, if you are using or will or intend to use the Platform for any journalistic, academic, investigative or unlawful purpose.
Seller Members additionally represent and warrant that:
· When using the Platform, you are operating as an independent contractor and as a sole proprietor, partnership, limited liability company, limited liability partnership, corporation or other business entity;

· You will only offer and provide Services for which you have the necessary skills and expertise, and provide those Services safely and in accordance with all applicable laws.
Seller Members are solely responsible for identifying and obtaining any required licenses, permits and registrations before offering Services and providing Services. Indeed, certain types of Services may be prohibited altogether in some locations, and it is the responsibility of Seller Members to avoid such prohibited Services. It is the responsibility of Buyer Members to conduct appropriate due diligence regarding such prior to entering into a Service Agreement. Penalties for failure to obtain required licenses, permits and registrations and engaging in prohibited Services may include fines or other legal enforcement, and will result in termination of your Account. If you have questions about how federal, state, provincial, territorial and local laws apply to your Services, you should first seek appropriate legal guidance.
Because Subvia does not supervise, scope, direct, control or monitor the Services of Seller Members or the performance of any Services, Buyer Members are responsible for determining for themselves whether a Seller Members is qualified to perform any Services at issue. Buyer Members are encouraged to consult federal, state, provincial, territorial or local requirements to determine whether certain Services are required to be performed by a licensed or otherwise registered professional. Buyer Members are also encouraged to discuss with their Seller Member any specific hazards, obstacles or impediments regarding the Services location (both visible and concealed) that may impact the performance of the Task.
Seller Members are solely responsible for obtaining, and shall obtain, all insurance required to operate their business and provide the Services. Seller Members shall cause Subvia to be added as an additional named insured on all insurance policies (i.e., including general liability) with commercially reasonable coverage.

Fees. In connection with the use of the Platform, Subvia may charge Users certain fees (“Subvia Fees” or “Fees”), including but not limited to, subscription fees and fees for additional products and services available on the Platform. Fees for additional products or services, including ongoing products or services, will be presented to you before you use such products or services. In order to create an Account, you must have at least one valid payment method stored on file on the Platform. Except as otherwise described herein, all Fees paid are final and non-refundable.
For ordinary charges owed by Users, Subvia will first attempt to charge the default payment method. In the event that Subvia is unable to charge that payment method for any reason, including but not limited to payment method cancellation, a payment method being out of date, or payment method details being incorrect, you agree that Subvia may charge any other payment method associated with your Account. If your payment details change, your card provider may provide us with updated card details. We may use these new details in order to help prevent any interruption to the Services. If Subvia is unable to charge the default payment method, Subvia will attempt to charge any other payment methods associated with your Account in the order in which they were most recently provided, used or updated on the Platform, charging the most recently provided, used or updated valid payment method first.
You agree to pay all applicable Fees or charges based on the Fee and billing terms then in effect, regardless of whether you have an active Account. Charges shall be made to the payment method designated at the time you accrue a Fee. If you do not pay on time or if Subvia cannot charge a payment method for any reason, Subvia reserves all rights permissible under law to recover payment and all costs and expenses incurred, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, in our pursuit of payment. If any Fee is not paid in a timely manner, or we are unable to process your transaction using the payment method provided, we reserve the right to terminate or suspend your Account.
You explicitly agree that all communication in relation to delinquent accounts or Fees due will be made by electronic mail or by phone. You agree that all notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. You agree that you have the ability to store such electronic communications such that they remain accessible to you in an unchanged form. You agree to keep your contact information current, including but not limited to email address and phone number. Such communication may be made by Subvia or by anyone on its behalf, including but not limited to a third-party collection agent. If you cancel your Account at any time, you will not receive any refund. If you have a balance due on any Account, you agree that Subvia may charge such unpaid Fees to any payment method or otherwise bill you for such unpaid Fees.
If you send text messages with a Buyer Member or Seller Member using the telephone number for that Member available on the Platform, we may use a third-party service provider to track these text messages. We track these text messages for fraud prevention, to ensure appropriate charging of Fees, to enforce these Terms, and for quality and training purposes. As part of this process, Subvia and its service provider will receive in real time and store data about your text message, including the date and time of the text message, your phone number and the content of the text message.
As a Buyer Member making a Marketplace Payment through Stripe, you agree to pay all amounts you owe when due using your preferred payment method. You further authorize Stripe to charge your preferred payment method for amounts you owe when they are due, whether they are recurring or one-time payments. You agree to keep all payment information you provide us up-to-date, accurate and complete will not share your payment card, bank account or other financial information with any other Member. Subvia may take steps to secure all payment methods and other personal financial information, but expressly disclaims any liability to you, and you agree to hold us harmless for any damages you may suffer as a result of the disclosure of your personal financial information to any unintended recipients.
Subvia may enable you to make Marketplace Payments using credit, debit or prepaid cards, by linking your bank account, or by any other payment method we support. We reserve the right to cancel your ability to make payments with one or more of the payment methods you have authorized in our sole and absolute discretion.
If you choose your bank account as your Marketplace Payment method, you authorize Stripe to make Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) withdrawals from your bank account, and to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate any dispute involving payments you make to us or to a Member, which may include ordering a credit report and performing other credit checks or verifying the information you provide us against third-party databases. You authorize Subvia or its provider to initiate one or more ACH debit entries (withdrawals) or the creation of an equivalent bank draft for the specified amount(s) from your bank account, and you authorize the financial institutions that holds your bank account to deduct such payments. You also authorize the bank that holds your bank account to deduct any such payments in the amounts and frequency designated in your Account.
You agree to pay any ACH fees or fines you or we incur associated with transactions you authorize. This return fee may vary based on the state in which you are located. The return fee may be added to your payment amount and debited from your bank account if we resubmit an ACH debit due to insufficient funds. We may initiate a collection process or legal action to collect any money owed to us. You agree to pay all our costs for such action, including any reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs. Federal law limits your liability for any fraudulent, erroneous or unauthorized transactions from your bank account based on how quickly you report it to your financial institution. You must report any fraudulent, erroneous or unauthorized transactions to your bank no more than 60 days after the disputed transaction appeared on your bank account statement. Please contact your bank for more information about the policies and procedures that apply unauthorized transactions and the limits on your liability.
Marketplace Payment Disputes. All requests for Marketplace Payment chargebacks, errors, claims, refunds and disputes (“Payment Disputes”) will be subject to review by Subvia in accordance with the rules applicable to the payment method you used to make the Marketplace Payment and will be in Subvia’s absolute sole discretion. Subvia is not liable to you under any circumstances for Payment Disputes we are unable to resolve in your favor. We will normally process your valid written Payment Dispute request within thirty (30) days after we receive it, unless a shorter period is required by law. You may file a Payment Dispute by emailing it to Subvia support at email@example.com. If you close or deactivate your Account before we adjudicate your Payment Dispute, we will not be able to issue you any amounts you are owed. We will attempt to pay you any Payment Disputed amounts you are owed using the method with which you made the disputed payment, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so if your payment method information is inaccurate or incomplete, or has been cancelled.
If you fail to make Marketplace Payments you owe when due, or if Subvia is unable to charge one of your payment methods for any reason, Subvia reserves all rights permissible under law to recover payment and all costs and expenses incurred, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, in our pursuit of payment. You explicitly agree that all communication in relation to delinquent accounts or overdue payments will be made by electronic mail or by phone. Such communication may be made by Subvia or by anyone on its behalf, including but not limited to a third-party collections agent.
Subvia may, from time to time, place a hold on any of your payment methods. Any such hold will be temporary and will not mature into a charge on your payment method. Payment method holds are intended to prevent failed payments.
Subvia values our Members, and we understand that occasionally disputes may arise between or among them. Our goal is to provide tools to help Users resolve disputes independently. In the rare event a dispute regarding an interaction related to the Platform cannot be resolved independently, you agree, at Subvia’s request, to participate in good faith in a neutral mediation conducted by Subvia or a neutral third-party mediator selected by Subvia. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that Subvia is under no obligation to become involved in or assist regarding the resolution of any dispute between or among Users or any third party.
Users agree to and shall respect and abide by all applicable copyright law. Subvia will terminate the Account of any User who infringes or is believed to be infringing the rights of any copyright holders.

Confidential Information shall include technical data, know-how, research, product plans, products, services, customers, markets, software, developments, inventions, processes, formulas, technology, designs, drawings, engineering, hardware configuration information, marketing, finances, strategic and other proprietary materials and confidential information relating to Subvia or Subvia’s business, operations or properties, including information about Subvia’s staff, Users or partners, or other business information disclosed or obtained directly or indirectly in writing, orally or by drawings or observation.
Any reviews or comments you provide to Subvia in connection with the Platform shall be considered non-confidential and nonproprietary, and Subvia shall have a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and transferable right to use, distribute, copy, display, and publish such reviews or comments. Subvia shall be free to use such information on an unrestricted basis and such information shall not be returned to you.
Any reference on the Platform to a User being licensed or credentialed in some manner, or “badged,” “best of,” “top” “background checked” (or similar self or other promotion) designations indicates only that the User has completed a relevant account process or met a User’s subjective review standards, and does not represent an endorsement by Subvia. Any such description is neither a certification, nor a guarantee, by Subvia they or their Services are licensed, insured, trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, as an example, any such description is intended solely a basis for a Buyer User to initiate its evaluation and selection of a Seller User through the Platform. You alone are encouraged to and must solely exercise responsibility, due diligence and care when deciding whether to have any interaction with any other User. While Subvia offers a non-exhaustive list of recommended safety tips to consider when hiring a Seller Member, Subvia assumes no responsibility for any damage or harm resulting from for your interactions with other Users.
The Collective Content may contain links to third-party websites, offers or other events/activities not owned or controlled by Subvia. Subvia does not endorse or assume any responsibility for any such links, and if you access them, you do so at your own risk.

Subvia may, in its discretion, with or without cause, with or without prior notice and at any time, decide to limit, block, suspend, deactivate or cancel your Account (and terminate all associated license rights to our Platform) in whole or in part. If Subvia does so, any or all of the following can occur with or without prior notice or explanation to you: (a) your Account will be deactivated or suspended, your password will be disabled, and you will not be able to access the Platform or your User Content, or receive assistance from Subvia support teams; (b) if appropriate in Subvia’s sole discretion, we may communicate to other Users that your Account has been terminated, blocked, suspended, deactivated, cancelled or otherwise penalized in any way, and why this action has been taken; and (c) you will not be entitled to any compensation for Platform services or Services cancelled or delayed as a result of such an Account action.
You may, in your discretion, with or without cause, with or without prior notice and at any time, discontinue or cancel your use of the Platform and/or terminate your Account. If you terminate your Account, Subvia shall have no obligation to delete or return to you any Content you have posted to the Platform, including, but not limited to, any reviews.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Initial Dispute Resolution and Mediation. Most disputes can be resolved informally without resorting to litigation. You can reach Subvia’s support department at firstname.lastname@example.org. You and Subvia agree to use your best efforts to settle any Dispute directly through consultation through the Subvia support department. In the event a resolution is not reached thereby, you and Subvia agree to engage in a good faith mediation after an exchange of relevant documentary support and before either party initiates a binding arbitration proceeding.
Class Action Waiver. The parties acknowledge that class action claims are not assertable under the Federal Arbitration Act. The parties further agree that any arbitration (i.e., whether under state or federal law) shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND SUBVIA AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate their Disputes.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property; Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all Disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Nothing herein shall be construed to limit either parties’ right to seek temporary injunctive relief in a judicial proceeding where justified under applicable rules of procedure, provided that, any such proceeding shall be solely and exclusively asserted in the State of Utah, County of Salt Lake. You and Subvia further hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Salt Lake County, Salt Lake City, Utah. You hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available. Both parties stipulate and agree that the posting of a bond relating thereto shall not be necessary. Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for Disputes within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM, SERVICES OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT SHALL BE SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT SUBVIA DOES NOT HAVE AN OBLIGATION, BUT RESERVES THE RIGHT FOR ANY REASON, TO (A) MONITOR OR REVIEW USER CONTENT; OR (B) CONDUCT IDENTITY VERIFICATION, BACKGROUND (INCLUDING CRIMINAL BACKGROUND) OR REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER CHECKS ON ANY USER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO SELLER MEMBERS AND BUYER MEMBERS.
