Mazree, LLC and/or its affiliates (“Mazree”) provides to Users of its Service certain web-based commerce-facilitating applications, as further set forth at www.Mazree.com("Services"), and hosting for such Services on Mazree’s website ("Site") subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. A “User,” for purposes of this Agreement, may be either a buyer or seller of products and services using the Mazree Service and Site.

If your select to have a Premium Account for your company, you agree to pay the “Subscription Fee” as it becomes due plus all related taxes, and to reimburse Mazree for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. Failure to pay may result in the termination of your subscription.
You also agree to Mazree storing your payment information. Depending on where you transact with us, the type of payment method used and where your payment method was issued, your transaction with us may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices, including because of exchange rates. Mazree does not support all payment methods, currencies or locations for payment. If the payment method you use with us, such as a credit card, reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your payment method information or reduce the number of users associated with your company profile to one, you authorize us to continue billing that payment method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. All applicable taxes are calculated based on the billing information you provide us at the time of purchase. You may cancel your account or reduce the number of users associated with your company profile by going to your Company Settings page within Mazree. Additionally, if you require a printed invoice for your transaction with us, you may access it through your Company Settings under “Account Summary” or request one by contacting our Customer Support.
If requested, regardless of the reason, Mazree agrees to refund up to 1 month of Subscription Fee payments made to Mazree. Only one refund may be issued per company profile. To request a refund, please contact our Customer Support.
E. Legal Compliance.
User may not post or request a bid for any item that is restricted or prohibited by a federal, state or local law in any country or jurisdiction. Mazree functions as a global marketplace, thus the posting, bidding or selling of items may be prohibited due to laws outside of the jurisdiction where User resides. User is solely responsible for determining applicable laws and complying with all laws in all the jurisdictions in which it expects to do business. Additionally, certain categories of postings which may not be prohibited by law in all jurisdictions, have been deemed inappropriate for posting on the Site. These categories include but are not limited to (a) Items that encourage illegal activities; (b) Items that are racially, religiously or ethnically derogatory, or that promote hatred, violence, racial or religious intolerance; (c) giveaways, lotteries, raffles, or contests; (d) stocks, bonds, investment interests, and other securities; (e) pornographic materials or items that are sexual in nature; (f) Items that do not offer a product or service for sale, such as advertisements solely for the purpose of collecting user information. Mazree, in its sole and exclusive discretion, reserves the right to impose additional restrictions and prohibitions. Users under the age of 18 may not use the Service. All users must be employed by a company in good standing. Mazree reserves the right to remove Users who are not affiliated with companies currently in good standing, as determined solely by Mazree. Without limiting other remedies, Mazree may limit, suspend or terminate the Service and any user accounts, prohibit access to the Site and its content, services and tools, delay or remove hosted Content, and take all necessary technical and legal steps to keep users off the Service and the Site if Mazree reasonably believes that there has been a violation of this Agreement, or if User’s use of the Service or the Site is otherwise creating problems, possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement.
F. Site Usage.
The Site or any portion of the Site may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without express written consent of Mazree. Users may not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any trademark, logo, or other proprietary information (including images, text, page layout, or form) of Mazree without express written consent. Users may not use any meta tags or any other "hidden text" utilizing Mazree's name or trademarks without the express written consent of Mazree. Users are granted a limited, revocable, and nonexclusive right to create a hyperlink to the home page of Mazree.com so long as the link does not portray Mazree, or its products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive matter. Users may not use any Mazree logo or other proprietary graphic or trademark as part of the link without express written permission. User understands that each company that registers with the Site shall appoint one or more administrators within the company who shall be responsible for authorizing additional Users of the Site within the company and authorizing certain responsibilities for each of the company’s Users. Mazree shall in no event be responsible for whom each administrator appoints and Mazree shall not be responsible for reviewing and approving the authorized responsibilities of User. User agrees to coordinate with its respective company administrator as to each User’s authorized responsibilities.
G. Reservation of Rights.
Mazree reserves the right to make changes to the Site, its policies, and this Agreement at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
H. Message Boards.
Mazree may provide to Users message boards on the Site to promote and encourage open, honest and respectful communication between Users. All Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted through a message board on the Site, shall be the sole responsibility and liability of the posting User. Mazree does not control the Content posted or transmitted through any message board on the Site, and does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such posted or transmitted Content. Mazree does not pre-screen Content posted or transmitted through any message board on the Site. Mazree may, but is not obligated to, monitor the posting activities of Users and may in its sole discretion, edit, remove any Content and/or restrict a User’s ability to post Content through the message boards. User understands it may be exposed to Content on the message boards that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. User shall indemnify Mazree from any and all third party claims arising from any Content that User uploads, posts or e-mails on or through the message boards. Mazree may allow Users to provide reviews of other Users and their respective companies; provided, however, that prior to posting any such reviews on the Site, the User providing the review must certify that he has previously engaged with the User and/or Company that is being reviewed.
I. Electronic Communications.
When a User visits the Site or sends e-mail to Mazree, the user is communicating with Mazree electronically. By doing so, the User consents to receiving communications from Mazree electronically. Mazree will communicate with Users by e-mail or by posting notices on the Site. User agrees that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that Mazree provides electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Each User shall indemnify Mazree and hold Mazree harmless for all damages, losses and costs (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) related to all third party claims, charges, and investigations, caused by (1) User’s failure to comply with this Agreement, including, without limitation, User’s submission of content that violates third party rights or applicable laws, (2) any content User submits to the Services, and (3) any activity in which User engages on or through Mazree.
K. Notify Mazree Of Acts Contrary To The Agreement.
If a User believes that it is entitled or obligated to act contrary to this Agreement under any mandatory law, User agrees to provide Mazree with detailed and substantiated explanation of its reasons in writing at least 30 days before it acts contrary to this Agreement, to allow Mazree to assess whether Mazree may, at its sole discretion, provide an alternative remedy for the situation, though Mazree is under no obligation to do so.

Neither Mazree nor any of its subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, shareholders, or directors (“Mazree Affiliates”) shall be cumulatively liable for (a) any damages in excess of US $100, or (b) any special, incidental, indirect, punitive or consequential damages or loss of use, profit, revenue or data to User or any third person arising from User’s use of the Service, any platform applications or any of the content or other materials on, accessed through or downloaded from Mazree. This limitation of liability is part of the basis of the bargain between the parties and without it the terms and prices charged would be different. This limitation of liability shall:
A. Mutual Rights of Termination.
User may terminate this Agreement, for any or no reason, at any time, with notice to Mazree pursuant to this Agreement. This notice will be effective upon Mazree processing User’s notice. Mazree may terminate the Agreement and User’s account for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice.

4. Dispute Resolution.
A. Law and Forum For Legal Disputes.
This Agreement or any claim, cause of action or dispute (“claim”) arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of Utah regardless of User’s country of origin or where User accesses Mazree, and notwithstanding of any conflicts of law principles and the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods. User and Mazree agree that all claims arising out of or related to this Agreement must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Salt Lake County, Utah, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Option paragraph below. User and Mazree agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Salt Lake County, Utah for the purpose of litigating all such claims. Notwithstanding the above, User agrees that Mazree shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
B. Arbitration Option.
For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
5. General Terms.
If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; and if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way.

H. Assignment and Delegation.
User may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under this Agreement. Any purported assignment and delegation shall be ineffective. Mazree may freely assign or delegate all rights and obligations under the Agreement, fully or partially without notice to User. Mazree may also substitute, by way of unilateral novation, effective upon notice to User, Mazree for any third party that assumes Mazree’s rights and obligations under this Agreement.
I. Potential Other Rights and Obligations.
User may have rights or obligations under local law other than those enumerated here if User is located outside the United States.

It is the responsibility of each User that uses Bid Requests to negotiate final terms of any such proposals offered on Bid Requests. Mazree shall in no way be responsible for the accuracy of any information posted by Users on Bid Requests and Mazree shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any kind in the event Users of Bid Requests are unable to negotiate final terms of any proposal offered on Bid Requests.
