7. Curasion Acceptable Use Policy
You agree not to misuse the Offerings and/or Materials.
For example, you must not, and must not attempt to, use the Offerings and/or Materials to do the following things:
Modify, alter, tamper with, repair, or otherwise create derivative works of any software included in the Offerings and/or Materials;
Reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile the Offerings and/or Materials (in whole or in part) or apply any other process or procedure to derive the source code of the Offerings and/or Materials and any software included in the Offerings and/or Materials;
Access or use the Offerings and/or Materials in a way intended to avoid incurring fees;
Resell or sublicense the Offerings;
Probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any system or network;
Breach or otherwise circumvent any security or authentication measures;
Access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of the Offerings, shared areas of the Offerings you
have not been invited to, and Curasion (or our third party providers’) computer systems;
Interfere with or disrupt any user, host, or network, for example by sending a virus, overloading, flooding, spamming, or mail-bombing any part of the Offerings;
Plant malware or otherwise use the Offerings to distribute malware;
Access or search the Offerings by any means other than our publicly supported interfaces (for example, you agree that you will not utilize “scraping” technology to access or search the Offerings);
Send unsolicited communications, promotions or advertisements, or spam;
Send altered, deceptive or false source-identifying information, including “spoofing” or “phishing”;
Publish or share anything that is deceptive, fraudulent, misleading, or infringes another’s rights or intellectual property, or otherwise infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property rights of another;
Impersonate or misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity;
Publish, import, upload, or share anything or make inappropriate requests that are pornographic or indecent, obscene, sexual or sexually suggestive, offensive, threatening, or that advocate bigotry, religious, racial or ethnic hatred; and

8. Other Content
The Offerings may contain links to or permit the use of third party websites. Curasion does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for their availability, accuracy, the related content, products, or services. You are solely responsible for your use of any such websites and you may be subject to any applicable third party terms and conditions.
The term of these Terms will commence on the date you agree to these Terms, or if earlier, when you use any of the Offerings and will continue for twelve (12) months (the ("Initial Term"). Thereafter these Terms will automatically renew for successive one (1) year terms (each a “Renewal Term”) unless either party notifies the other at least ten (10) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or the then Renewal Term or either party terminates these Terms in accordance with these Terms. The Initial Term and each Renewal Term are collectively referred to as the “Term”.
If a Company hires a Contractor, a Contractor agrees to enter the time the Contractor worked for the Company into the applicable vendor management system in order for the Contractor to be paid by the Employer. The recording of time and payment of funds to various parties happens at the discretion of the Client often within third party technologies and services and through relationships that a Company has with a vendor management system and a vendor of record. That being said, if a Company hires a Contractor that the Company found through using the Offerings, the Company agrees to indirectly pay Curasion a fee for each hour worked by the Contractor that was hired and/or a monthly platform fee, if the Contractor was submitted into the Offerings by a Staffing Vendor, the Company agrees to indirectly pay the Staffing Vendor a percentage of the billing rate for each hour worked by the Contractor. We will inform a Company when a Contractor hired was sourced into the talent pools by a Staffing Vendor or by the Company. Payments due before the termination of these Terms will still be payable by Companies at the time of such termination.
Though we would much rather you stay, you can stop using our Offerings by following the termination procedures. We reserve the right to suspend or end the Offerings at any time, without penalty, with or without cause, and with or without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Offerings in any way that would cause us legal liability or disrupt others’ use of the Offerings. If we suspend or terminate your use, we will try to let you know in advance by using the contact information in your account and help you retrieve data within 5 days of the suspension or termination, though there may be some cases (for example, repeatedly or flagrantly violating these Terms, a court order, or danger to other users) where we may suspend immediately without notice to you. Upon termination of these Terms, you agree to cease accessing and using the Offerings.
12. Curasion is Available “AS-IS”
Though we want to provide a great service and we use a hosting service provider which provides our storage space for our Offerings, there are certain things about the Offerings we cannot promise. For example, THE OFFERINGS AND MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY AND APPROPRIATENESS OF THE CONTENT AND ALL ACCOMPANYING DATA. WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR INACCURATE INFORMATION AND ANY POTENTIAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY SUCH INACCURACIES. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT WE MAY NOT MAINTAIN COPIES OF CONTENT, REPORTS, FILES, FOLDERS, MATERIALS, OR DOCUMENTS THAT ARE USED, CREATED, OR SENT BY YOU AND THAT YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR BACKING UP CONTENT, REPORTS, FILES, FOLDERS, MATERIALS, AND DOCUMENTS. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. Curasion will have no responsibility for any harm to your computer system, loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Offerings and/or Materials. Some jurisdictions do not allow the types of disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
FURTHER, WE AND OUR AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTIES THAT THE OFFERINGS AND/OR MATERIALS ARE APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE IN ALL GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS.

You agree to fully cooperate at your expense as reasonably required by an Indemnified Party. Each Indemnified Party may, at its election, assume the defense and control of any matter for which it is indemnified hereunder. You shall not settle any matter involving an Indemnified Party without the consent of the applicable Indemnified Party.
15. Limitation of Liability
WE AND OUR AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS, AND EACH OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND REPRESENTATIVES ARE NOT LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT OR SPECIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY PERSONAL INJURY, LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR OTHER DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER OR OTHERWISE) ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH ACCESS AND USE OF THE OFFERINGS AND/OR MATERIALS AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE OFFERINGS, WHETHER UNDER A THEORY OF BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, MALPRACTICE OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

We may revise these Terms from time to time by providing you with reasonable notice of the change either electronically or by posting notice of the change on the Site. Your acceptance to the amended Terms of Service by clicking on the appropriate button, will indicate your acceptance to the new Terms of Service. Any changes will be effective only after the effective date of the change and will not affect any dispute arising prior to the effective date of the change. The most current version of the Terms of Service will always be posted on the Site. If you have an account with us, we may (but are not required to) provide you with notice via the email address that we have on file for you that we have changed these Terms. As you know, sometimes there are issues with email communication. We are not responsible if any email notice gets caught by your email filters and you do not see it, if you have given us the wrong email address (or failed to update your address) or if there are other communications issues that prevent email from reaching you. If you do not agree to the new Terms of Service, please stop accessing and using the Offerings.
We may also, in the future, offer updates, upgrades, or services through the Offerings. Any new updates, upgrades, or services will be subject to these Terms and any additional terms that accompany such new updates, upgrades, or services.
17. Miscellaneous Legal Terms
These Terms shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada. Each party hereto irrevocably waives any objection on the grounds of venue, forum non-conveniens or any similar grounds and irrevocably consents to service of process by mail or in any other manner permitted by applicable law and consents to the jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario, Canada. The parties further hereby waive any right to a trial by jury with respect to any lawsuit or judicial proceeding arising or relating to these Terms and agree that any proceeding must be brought in and remain in the courts located in the City of Toronto, Ontario. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and Curasion with respect to the Offerings, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Offerings. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights. Curasion’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void, but Curasion may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or as part of a sale of all or part of the business or undertaking of Curasion. A printed version of these Terms and of any related notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Curasion and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors. Notwithstanding the termination or expiration of these Terms for any reason, Sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17 of these Terms shall survive any such termination or expiration.
