TILR CLIENT TERMS OF SERVICE
Thank you for your interest in tilr Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“TILR”). TILR provides Clients with a fully automated recruitment process by matching worker skills to job requirements (the “Platform”).
a. TILR Automated Recruitment Platform. The Platform is a communications platform for enabling the connection between persons seeking to obtain services (“you” or the “Client”) and/or individuals seeking to provide services (“Members”). Clients and Members may also be generally referred to as “Users.” Your use of the Platform and the TILR Web Site is the “Service” provided to you by TILR. Those certain services requested by the Client, which are to be completed by the Members, are hereinafter referred to as the “Member Services.” The provision of all Member Services is up to the Members, scheduled through use of the Platform. TILR, THROUGH THE PLATFORM, OFFERS INFORMATION AND A METHOD TO OBTAIN SUCH MEMBER SERVICES, DOES NOT AND WILL NOT PROVIDE SUCH MEMBER SERVICES ITSELF, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY MEMBERS SERVICES PROVIDED TO THE CLIENT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, A WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF GOOD AND WORKMANLIKE SERVICES, WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR COMPLIANCE WITH ANY LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE.
b. Background Checks; Drug Tests; Other Services. TILR, through the Platform, facilitates background checks and, where applicable, drug screening of Members via third party providers (the “Third-Party Services”). Background checks are regulated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), and the resulting reports are considered “consumer reports” under FCRA. A summary of responsibilities that may apply to your use of the information contained in a consumer report can be found at: http://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/using-consumer-reports-what-employers-need-know. If there is negative data in a background check you receive and you choose to take “adverse action” (i.e. if you choose not to engage the Member for Member Services) on the basis of this negative data, you may be required to take certain procedural steps, which can be found at: http://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/using-consumer-reports-what-employers-need-know. BY USING THE PLATFORM, YOU AGREE TO HOLD TILR HARMLESS FROM ANY LIABILITIES OR LOSSES THAT MIGHT ARISE OUT OF THE THIRD-PARTY OR MEMBER SERVICES. TILR IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER (INCLUDING MEMBERS OR CLIENTS), AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY, OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH ANY THIRD-PARTY OR MEMBER SERVICES.
2. ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ACCEPTANCE

By registering for an account on the TILR Web Site or Platform (an “Account”), or by clicking to accept the Terms when prompted on the TILR Web Site, you are deemed to have read, understood, acknowledged, and agreed to, these Terms electronically, effective on the date you register your Account or click to accept these Terms, pursuant to the Ohio Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (Ohio Rev.

3. CHANGES TO TERMS
TILR may revise and update these Terms from time to time in its sole discretion. Unless stated otherwise, all changes are effective upon notice and apply to all access to and use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service following posting of any revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set forth in Section 19 will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or prior to the date the change is posted on the TILR Web Site or any other location on the Platform.

6. EMPLOYMENT CLASSIFICATION
TILR is not an employer of Members. The Client may seek Member Services through the use of the Service. The Service may provide the Client with Members to consider for Member Services based on the information the Client provides TILR regarding the Client’s needs and preferences. However, if Client agrees to engage the Member for Member Services, such agreement is solely between the Client and each such Member. Client is responsible and assumes all Liability for determining whether Members are independent contractors or employees and engaging them accordingly.
These Terms do not create a partnership or agency relationship between TILR and any User. Users do not have authority to enter into written or oral (whether implied or express) contracts on behalf of TILR.
8. LINKS TO OTHER SITES
The Service may link to or may be accessed in connection with external sites. These links or the ability to access other external sites from the Service are provided for your convenience only and do not constitute an endorsement by TILR of such sites or their content, products, or other materials. You access such external sites at your own risk. It is your responsibility to evaluate the content and usefulness of the information obtained from external sites. TILR has no control over the content of any external sites and accepts no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. If you decide to access any external sites linked to or otherwise accessible from the Service, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of use and privacy policies for such external sites. You agree to hold TILR harmless from any Loss or Liability that may result from the use of any links or access to external sites that may appear on the Service.
9. PAYMENT TERMS
a. Client shall pay each Member that accepts and performs a job for the Client the amount specified in the posting made by the Client for the job (the “Member Compensation”), less any lawful and authorized deductions. TILR will facilitate the payment of the applicable Member Compensation on behalf of the Client as such Member’s limited payment collection agent. Payment of the Member Compensation in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by the Client to the Member. Client shall pay the Member Compensation in any lawful currency and by any lawful means on a weekly basis, unless the Client elects to pay the Member Compensation on an earlier date.
b. Client shall pay TILR the applicable TILR Markup and Service Fee at the same time that the Client pays the Member Compensation. The Member Compensation together with the TILR Fees, as listed here, constitute the “Client Fee.”
c. Client shall pay to TILR the Client Fee balance reflected on the invoices periodically posted to Client’s Account by use of a credit card or debit card, or automated clearing house (ACH) transfer, as authorized by Client below and on the TILR Web Site.

You hereby authorize TILR to electronically debit and, if necessary, electronically credit your designated bank account via ACH for such fees pursuant to these Terms, and you agree to comply with the ACH rules issued by the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) and all applicable laws, including, but not limited to, the federal Bank Secrecy Act, the U.S.A. Patriot Act, and economic sanctions overseen by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Your authorization for ACH transfers contained in this Section 9 will remain in full force and effect until you notify TILR that you wish to revoke your authorization by removing your bank account information from your Account or by contacting TILR at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You are solely responsible for promptly reconciling your Account transaction history with the transaction records for your card or bank account. You must notify us of any errors or discrepancies in your Account transaction history (each, an “Error”) within 30 days of when the Error could be viewed in your Account transaction history on the TILR Web Site. If you do not notify us of an Error within 30 days of when the Error could be viewed in your Account transaction history on the TILR Web Site, you will forfeit the right to contest the Error, except to the extent such forfeiture is prohibited by applicable law or the NACHA rules, if applicable.
iv. TILR may, at any time and in its sole discretion, terminate your right to make payment by ACH transfer.
d. TILR may from time to time provide certain Clients with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar Services obtained through the use of the TILR Web Site or Platform, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to the Client, shall have no bearing on your use of the Services or the Fees applied to you.
