    1. Supervision and Prohibited Duties.  All Potential Employee Candidates (“PECs”) who provide work to you or on your behalf (each, a “Placed Employee”) through the Contractor’s “Platform Access and Placement Services” shall be the employees of you, the Client.  All PECs and Placed Employees who provide Services to you through the Contractor’s “Temp-to-Hire Services” shall be the employees of Contractor.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, whenever a PEC or Placed Employee is providing Services of any kind to you or on your behalf, you agree to accept responsibility for the supervision and management of all Placed Employees and any PEC going through vetting, onboarding, or training with you in anticipation of becoming a Placed Employee.  You agree to ensure that all PECs and Placed Employees are supervised by a designated trainer/manager/owner at all times.  You shall not permit or direct any PECs or Placed Employees to act beyond the scope of the specific job duties assigned to them in advance of a shift or as posted on the Platform, as the case may be, nor shall you post any shift in which the performance thereof would violate any law.

    2. Client’s Supervisory Representation and Warranty.  Without proscribing how Client employees Placed Employees, Contractor has an interest in ensuring their safety at all times, and therefore, you represent and warrant that you shall (i) conduct a thorough onsite walkthrough with all PECs and Placed Employees; (ii) introduce them to supervisors and orient them to all job functions and responsibilities prior the start of any working shift; (iii) refrain from leaving PECs or Placed Employee unattended for extended periods of time (longer than 15 to 20 minutes); (iv) ensure a safe working environment free from threats from third parties or other Client employees; and (v) have safeguards or protocols in place to prevent any PEC or Placed Employee from having any responsibilities outside of the scheduled work or beyond their station (e.g., if a Placed Employee is a dishwasher, and the head chef goes for a smoke break, the Placed Employee should not be left to run the kitchen; e.g., if a Placed Employee is assisting with bartending services but is unlicensed, he/she should not be left unattended; e.g., if a Placed Employee is scheduled to assist with providing food service support for a catering event, he or she should not be tasked with being solely responsible for the point of sale system and handling all event cash without reasonable advanced training; etc.).

    3. Insurance.  Client is responsible for providing all insurance for any PECs and Placed Employees who provide Services through the Contractor’s “Platform Access and Placement Services” including but not limited to Worker’s Compensation Insurance and Unemployment Insurance, auto insurance for any vehicle use by any such employee, etc.  Contractor is responsible for providing all insurance for any PECs and Placed Employees who provide Services to you through the Contractor’s “Temp-to-Hire Services.”  During the term of the Agreement and for a period of one (1) year thereafter, the Client shall carry the following types of insurance: worker’s compensation, professional errors and omissions, and comprehensive general liability and employee practices liability insurance.  Such policies shall not be cancelled by the insurance company or Client without providing Contractor with at least 30 calendar days’ prior written notice.  A certificate of insurance shall be provided to Contractor within 30 calendar days from receipt of a written request from Contractor.

    4. OSHA/Workplace Safety.  Client shall assume all responsibility for providing a safe working environment for any PECs and Placed Employees and any workplace-specific training necessary for said individuals to perform the Services to or on behalf of Client.

  3. Client Data.  When you utilize the Platform, Contractor may collect personal information that you entered.  This information includes but is not limited to: full name, address, email, order and message content.  Contractor does not share any of this information with third parties with the following exceptions.

    1. Third-Party Service Providers.  Personal information may be sent to and held by Contractor’s third-party service providers, such as mailing services (like USPS) and credit card/payment gateway providers (such as Stripe), which providers the Contractor expressly reserves the right to change from time to time in its sole discretion.  Only information necessary to complete transactions and shipping are given to these entities.  When you provide credit card information the Platform automatically sends the encrypted information to a payment gateway to process the transaction.  The Contractor does not see or store your full credit card number or card’s security code other than the last 4 digits of your card number for internal accounting purposes.  In general, the third-party providers used by the Contractor will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to Contractor.  However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, may redirect you away from the Platform to their own payment platform.  Once you leave the Contractor’s Platform or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by these Terms with respect to your activities on those third-party websites or applications. For these providers, it is recommended that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by them.

    2. Legal Authorities and Emergencies.  If there is a lawful request for information made by federal, state, or local authorities, Contractor may share such information but only to the extent minimally necessary to comply with such request (i.e., extraneous information will not be provided unless required by said lawful request).  Contractor also reserves the right to share personal information where Contractor reasonably believes an emergency exists where someone’s personal safety is at risk.

    3. Email Marketing (if applicable):  Contractor may send you emails about new services, Platform features, or various promotional activities of the Contractor.

    4. Cookies and Analytics.  Contractor uses Google Analytics to learn about who visits the Platform, its website, and what pages and features are being viewed and utilized.  Contractor reserves the right to utilize cookies to track various website visitor activity and information.

  4. Intellectual Property.  All information and images on the Platform or Contractor’s website are the sole property of Contractor and the materials contained therein are protected by applicable copyright and trade mark law.

Confidentiality.  The parties agree not to use any Confidential Information (defined below) of the other party for any purpose other than for performance of its obligations hereunder.  The parties will treat Confidential Information as if it were its own proprietary information and will not disclose it to any third-party without the written consent of the disclosing party.  All persons receiving Confidential Information through a receiving party under the Agreement shall be subject to the confidentiality and non-use obligations as are set forth in the Agreement.  Each party shall be responsible for ensuring that such persons comply with this paragraph prior to review of any information it is receiving from the other party.  “Confidential Information” means the terms of the Agreement (including any quote, statement of work, or other written communication between the parties), any amounts payable hereunder, and, in relation to either party, all information (whether oral, written or in electronic or any other form) belonging to or relating to that party or any third-party to whom such party owes a duty of confidentiality, their business affairs or activities (including information concerning any trade secrets, client and customer information, marketing materials and know how, business plans and strategies, financial information, technical information and data or business plans of any such party) which is marked or stated to be confidential or which due to its character or nature, a reasonable person in a like position and under like circumstances would treat as and/or reasonably believe to be confidential.  The restrictions on use and disclosure of Confidential Information set forth herein shall apply during the term of the Agreement and remain in effect thereafter (a) with respect to Confidential Information that rises to the level of a trade secret under applicable law, for so long as such Confidential Information retains its status as a trade secret, and (b) with respect to Confidential Information that does not rise to the level of a trade secret under applicable law, for a period of two (2) years following the termination of the Agreement.
