Last updated May 15, 2019

In order to use the compensation platform or services (the “Services”) provided by CultivatePeople, Inc., a Delaware Corporation (“Company”) through the website located at https://www.cultivatepeople.co (the “Website”) and/or a client access application, if any, licensed to you by Company (an “App”), you must read and accept all of the terms and conditions in these Terms of Use (this “Agreement”).  If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to this Agreement. In that case, “You” and “Your” will refer to that company or other legal entity.

BY ACCEPTING THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS, CONDITIONS AND NOTICES CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT JUST AS IF YOU HAD SIGNED THIS AGREEMENT.

 

1. Your Use of Services

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You may access and use the Services through the Website or the App for the Term (as defined in Section 3) below. The Services may be used only in connection with the processing of Your information and such data, and not the information or data of any third party. You may not use the Services in any way that: (i) does not comply with the terms of this Agreement, as amended by Company from time to time, or any other terms, rules, or guidelines provided by Company concerning your use of the Services; (ii) may subject Company to unfavorable regulatory action, violate any law, infringe upon the rights of third parties, or subject Company to liability for any reason; or (iii) might adversely affect Company’s public image, reputation or goodwill. All right, title and interest in and to the Services are owned and retained exclusively by Company. Except for the rights and licenses expressly provided herein, all rights, title and interest in the Services, including all corrections, enhancements and modifications thereof, are reserved by Company. You are responsible for your employees, contractors and agents compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR USING THE SERVICES IN A MANNER THAT COMPLIES WITH LAWS, RULES, DIRECTIVES, REGULATIONS AND OTHER REQUIREMENTS OF GOVERNMENT AND REGULATORY AUTHORITIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, EMPLOYMENT AND PRIVACY RELATED LAWS (COLLECTIVELY, “LAWS”). YOU SHALL NOT USE THE SERVICES IN ANY MANNER THAT VIOLATES LAWS.

 

2. Your Use of Agent Software

As part of the Services, it may be required that You install a software agent obtained from the Website on each of your computers (the “Software”). Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Company grants You a nonexclusive, non-transferable license to use the Software (in object code only) and the corresponding user documentation (“Documentation”, Software and Documentation referred to together as the “Product”) as described herein. The term “Product” shall include any corrections, enhancements, updates or other modifications, including any custom modifications, to the Software and Documentation delivered to You.

You agree not to use the Software in any way to design or develop a competing software product. You shall not sublicense, distribute or otherwise make the Software available to a third party. You shall not permit any parent, subsidiaries, affiliated entities or third parties to use the Software and Documentation without the prior written permission of Company.

 

3. Switching Service Plans

Company currently offers several Service Plans with varying features and fee schedules, as well as multiple add-on services that User can choose to opt into for additional fees, unless otherwise stated. Before User may begin to use the Services, User will be asked to select a Service Plan from those detailed at https://kamsa.co. User may request to change User’s Service Plan via the Platform.

If User chooses to upgrade from User’s current Service Plan (the “Current Plan”) to a more expensive Service Plan (the “New Upgrade Plan”), then such upgrade will promptly go into effect, and User will begin receiving access to the features and Services available under the New Upgrade Plan at the time of such upgrade. The fee schedule for the New Upgrade Plan will be applied to User’s Service Plan charge for the calendar month in which User upgraded and for each calendar month thereafter for so long as User is subscribed to the New Upgrade Plan.

If User chooses to downgrade from User’s Current Plan to a less expensive Service Plan (the “New Downgrade Plan”), then the downgrade will not go into effect until the beginning of the calendar month following the calendar month in which User elected to downgrade (the “Downgrade Election Month”). User will still receive access to the features and Services available with User’s Current Plan until the end of the Downgrade Election Month. After the Downgrade Election Month, User will lose access to some of the features and Services available with User’s Current Plan and will only have access to the features and Services available under User’s New Downgrade Plan. The fee schedule for User’s Current Plan will be applied to User’s Service Plan charge for the Downgrade Election Month, and the fee schedule for the New Downgrade Plan will be applied to User’s Service Plan charge for the calendar month following the Downgrade Election Month and for each calendar month thereafter for so long as User is subscribed to the New Downgrade Plan.
