Changes to these Terms:
FlexTeam reserves the right to make unilateral modifications to this Agreement, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the Platform, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. If you do not agree with the new Agreement, you are free to reject it; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Platform. If you use the Platform in any way after a change to this Agreement is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes. Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of this Agreement will be effective unless agreed to in writing by both you and us.
1. Use of Our Platform
FlexTeam provides a platform that enables Client users of FlexTeam’s Platform to submit requests (“Projects”) that FlexTeam’s independent contractors (“Consultants”) may elect to complete. If you are a Client, you will be required to agree to additional terms and conditions that are specific to Client users prior to commissioning a Project from a Consultant. Similarly, if you are a Consultant, you will be required to agree to additional terms and conditions that are specific to Consultant users prior to performing work on or receiving compensation for any Project.
NEITHER FLEXTEAM NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY CLIENT, CONSULTANT OR OTHER USER OF THE PLATFORM. FLEXTEAM AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM.
This is a contract between you and FlexTeam. You must read and agree to these terms before using the Platform. If you do not agree, you may not use the Platform. By executing this Agreement, you represent that you are over the over the age of majority in the state in which you reside and otherwise may lawfully enter into this binding contract with FlexTeam, whereby you are agreeing to comply with the terms stated herein and any applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.
You must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible to use the Platform. Any use or access to the Platform by anyone under 18 is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. Some requests may not be made via the Platform by users under 21 years of age. In certain instances, FlexTeam may require you to provide proof of identity to create your account, or to access or use the Platform, and you acknowledge and agree that you may be denied access or use of the Platform if you refuse to provide such proof. Absent extenuating circumstances, the Platform is not available to any Users previously removed from the Platform by FlexTeam.
B. FlexTeam Platform
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Platform for your own internal use only and as permitted by the features of the Platform. FlexTeam reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Platform and the FlexTeam Content (as defined below). FlexTeam may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason.
C. FlexTeam Accounts
Your FlexTeam account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a FlexTeam account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” or “your” includes you and such entity and its affiliates, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement and that you agree to all terms stated herein on the entity’s behalf. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with this Agreement, you must not accept this Agreement and may not use the Platform. You may not use the Platform not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party.
By connecting to FlexTeam with a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service.
You may not use another User’s account without that User’s express permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information, and you must keep this information up to date. Your failure to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date account information may result in your inability to access and use the Platform or our termination of this Agreement.
You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account secure. You must notify FlexTeam immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. FlexTeam will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
By providing FlexTeam your email address, you consent to our using the email address to send you Platform related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Platform and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.

2. Mobile Software
A. Mobile Software. We may make available software to access the Platform via a mobile device (“Mobile Software”).

You may use mobile data in connection with the Mobile Software and may incur additional charges from your wireless provider for these services. You agree that you are solely responsible for any such charges. FlexTeam hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use a compiled code copy of the Mobile Software for one FlexTeam account on one mobile device owned or leased solely by you, for your personal use.
You may not: (i) modify, disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the Mobile Software, except to the extent that such restriction is expressly prohibited by law; (ii) rent, lease, loan, resell, sublicense, distribute or otherwise transfer the Mobile Software to any third party or use the Mobile Software to provide time sharing or similar services for any third party; (iii) make any copies of the Mobile Software; (iv) remove, circumvent, disable, damage or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Mobile Software, features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content accessible through the Mobile Software, or features that enforce limitations on use of the Mobile Software; or (v) delete the copyright and other proprietary rights notices on the Mobile Software. You acknowledge that FlexTeam may from time to time issue upgraded versions of the Mobile Software, and may automatically electronically upgrade the version of the Mobile Software that you are using on your mobile device. You consent to such automatic upgrading on your mobile device, and agree that the terms and conditions of this Agreement will apply to all such upgrades. Any third-party code that may be incorporated in the Mobile Software is covered by the applicable open source or third-party license end user licensing agreement, if any, authorizing use of such code. The foregoing license grant is not a sale of the Mobile Software or any copy thereof, and FlexTeam or its third-party partners or suppliers retain all right, title, and interest in the Mobile Software (and any copy thereof). Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in this Agreement, is void. FlexTeam reserves all rights not expressly granted under this Agreement.
If the Mobile Software is being acquired on behalf of the United States Government, then the following provision applies. The Mobile Software will be deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” respectively, pursuant to DFAR Section 227.7202 and FAR Section 12.212, as applicable. Any use, reproduction, release, performance, display or disclosure of the Platform and any accompanying documentation by the U.S. Government will be governed solely by these Terms of Services and is prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by these Terms of Services. The Mobile Software originates in the United States, and is subject to United States export laws and regulations. The Mobile Software may not be exported or re-exported to certain countries or those persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports from the United States. In addition, the Mobile Software may be subject to the import and export laws of other countries.
