These Terms are a contract to use our Services.

If you are using or accessing the Services on behalf of an Organization, you represent, agree, and warrant that you are authorized to act on behalf of the Organization and to bind such Organization to these Terms. ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS IS REQUIRED FOR USE OF HANDPRINT’S SERVICES AND ANY USE OF HANDPRINT’S SERVICES SHALL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use our Services. If you wish to terminate these Terms, you can do so at any time by closing your account and discontinuing access and use of the Services.
You might use our Services as an individual end user (“Talent”) or as a company or organization seeking to hire Talent (“Organization”).

Registering or creating an account with false information is a violation of our Terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others who do not meet our Minimum Age or other eligibility requirements.
Handprint provides certain Services for free while others are available in exchange for payment of a monthly fee payable in advance by automatic credit against your payment method on file with us. Fees are posted on the Services and presented to you at the time you sign up or adjust your Services level. We may adjust fees from time to time at our discretion. If we adjust our fees or you request to upgrade or downgrade your Services level, and we agree to the change, the following month’s fee will be amended to reflect the change. All fees are quoted in United States dollars. Subscription billing starts on the day you sign up for Services that incur a fee.
You agree that we may charge your payment method on file with the fees due under this section, as well as any sales and use taxes and any late fees or interest (described below). You represent and warrant that the payment information you provide to us is correct and accurate and you are using a form of payment that you are legally authorized to use for this purpose. You agree that you are solely liable for any payment or credit card fraud, abuse or unauthorized use by you or others. Payments are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.
If you do not pay on time or if we cannot charge the payment method you have on file for any reason, we reserve the right to either suspend or terminate your access to the Services. In addition, if any payment is not received within 30 days after the due date, then we may charge a late fee of $10 and we may assess interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month (18% per year), or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from 30 days after the due date until the date paid. If your unpaid fees are referred to an attorney or collections agency, you shall pay all reasonable attorney’s fees or collections agency fees.

HANDPRINT MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY ABOUT THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY REPRESENTATION THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, AND PROVIDE THE SERVICES (INCLUDING CONTENT AND INFORMATION) ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, HANDPRINT DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF TITLE, ACCURACY OF DATA, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
IN NO EVENT AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER IN TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW (SUCH AS DELIBERATE AND GROSSLY NEGLIGENT ACTS) OR AGREED TO IN WRITING, SHALL HANDPRINT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER ARISING AS A RESULT OF THESE TERMS OR OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE HANDPRINT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES), EVEN IF HANDPRINT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY AMOUNTS EXCEED THE AGGREGATE OF THE TOTAL OF THE AMOUNT YOU PAID FOR THE SPECIFIC SERVICE GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY OR, IF NO AMOUNT WAS PAID, ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100). These limitations of liability are part of the basis of the bargain between you and Handprint and shall apply to all claims of liability (e.g., warranty, tort, negligence, contract, and law) even if Handprint has been told of the possibility of any such damage, and even if these remedies fail their essential purpose.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Handprint and its officers, directors, employees, licensors, representatives, and/or agents at all times from and against any direct or third-party claims, demands, actions, proceedings, damages, losses, liabilities, costs, and/or expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees) in connection with or as a result of any claim that arises from (a) your breach of these Terms; (b) our provision of the Services to you; (c) Your Content or account data; (d) your breach or alleged breach of any representation or warranty made by you hereunder; or (e) your violation of any law or regulation or the right of a third party. Handprint may select its own legal counsel to represent its interests when defending against direct or third-party claims or demands, and you must (i) reimburse Handprint for its costs and attorney’s fees immediately upon request as they are incurred and (ii) remain responsible to Handprint for any loss, liability, cost, expense, claim, damages, or demand identified in this section.
YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO COMMENCE OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST HANDPRINT RELATED TO ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY, AND, WHERE APPLICABLE, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO OPT OUT OF ANY CLASS PROCEEDING AGAINST HANDPRINT OTHERWISE COMMENCED ON OR AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THESE TERMS.
This section is important as it affects rights that you may otherwise have, so read it carefully. Resolution of most disputes will be through arbitration instead of court trials and class actions. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. Any controversy or claim between you and Handprint shall be resolved exclusively by a binding arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (“JAMS”), or its successor. Either party may commence the arbitration process called for in this Agreement by filing a written demand for arbitration with JAMS, with a copy to the other party. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of JAMS's Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in effect at the time of filing of the demand for arbitration and will be held exclusively in King County, State of Washington, USA. The parties will cooperate with JAMS and with one another in selecting an arbitrator from JAMS' panel of neutrals, and in scheduling the arbitration proceedings. The parties covenant that they will participate in the arbitration in good faith, and that they will share equally in its costs. The provisions of this section may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction, and the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of all costs, fees, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, to be paid by the party against whom enforcement is ordered. Any and all issues shall be governed by the internal laws of the State of Washington. Each party hereby consents to service of process by certified mail.
Except as expressly agreed in writing between you and Handprint, the Federal Arbitration Act, Washington state law, and applicable U.S. federal law, without regard to the choice or conflicts of law provisions, will govern these Terms. If any claim is not subject to arbitration, you consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located within King County, Washington.
These Terms and the license granted to you will terminate automatically if you terminate your agreement to these Terms, if you are no longer eligible for the Services, if you breach these Terms, or for any other reason at our sole discretion. If you violate our Terms, we may immediately terminate your access to the Services without prior notice to you. In addition, we may terminate your access and/or subscription for any or no reason by giving you 30 days’ notice. All terms which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
These Terms and the agreements referenced herein are the entire agreement between you and Handprint regarding the subjects in these Terms and supersede all prior understandings and agreements. You and Handprint are independent contractors under these Terms.
If any of these Terms are found to be inconsistent with applicable law, then such term shall be interpreted to reflect the intentions of the parties, and no other terms will be modified. If we don't act to enforce a breach of these Terms, that does not mean that Handprint has waived its right to enforce these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remainder of the provision shall be amended to achieve as closely as possible the economic effect of the original term and all other provisions shall continue in full force and effect.
Neither party will be liable to the other for any failure or delay in performance of an obligation, other than obligations to make payments, arising out of any event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of that party, including without limitation acts of God, earthquakes, fires, floods, pandemics, power outages, interruptions in telecommunication services, strikes, and governmental actions.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms (or your membership or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that Handprint may assign these Terms to a third party without your consent. There are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms. We may modify these Terms (or the notices and agreements incorporated herein) from time to time. If we make material changes to it, we will provide you notice through the Services or by other means. Your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to these terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms as of their effective date.
