If you do not wish to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth in this User Agreement, you may not access or use the Services.
Scope of Services. Client may hire ConnectHR to provide Services to Client in connection with the FasCast application, which is a web-based, human resource solution that may or not include telephone, email and/or text message marketing for available positions. The details of individual projects relating to the Services and compensation will be outlined in an additional document (the “Supplement/s”). All written Supplements shall be signed by an authorized representative of both parties. ConnectHR will commence the Services as detailed in the Supplement and will continue such Services diligently and without delay, in a good and workmanlike manner as requested.
Payment for Work. The consideration to be paid by Client to Company for the Services shall be provided at the rates set out in the Company pricing plan at the time of subscription, plus applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges. Company may modify subscription Service Fees at renewal periods.
In the event of a dispute, Client shall notify ConnectHR of such dispute in writing within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of ConnectHR’s invoice. In the event either party institutes suit to enforce any right or obligation against the other party, then the prevailing party to such action shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees, court cost and all other expenses related thereto.
Relationship of Parties. The relationship of the parties under this agreement is one of independent contractors, and no joint venture, partnership, agency, employer-employee, or similar relationship is created in or by this agreement. Neither Party may assume or create obligations on the other Party’s behalf, and neither Party may take any action that creates the appearance of such authority.
Term and Termination.ConnectHR subscriptions shall automatically renew on a monthly basis at the rate indicated on the ConnectHR pricing plans presented to Client. Clients may discontinue their subscription at any time by formal, written notice. There are no refunds or credits for any partial-month subscription periods.
At Company’s sole discretion, Company per-message service plans may expire after one hundred eighty (180) days of inactivity or upon exhaustion of the messages. Inactivity is defined to mean that Client has neither purchased an additional per-message plan, nor initiated a broadcast. Company per-message service plans are non-refundable.
Proprietary Information. Client acknowledges that ConnectHR’s Services, computer, software, materials, products, marketing, selling and business plan is unique and proprietary to the ConnectHR. Client will, no doubt, in the course of this Agreement have access to the ConnectHR’s proprietary Services, software, work-product, and documents relating to the Services and become familiar with the scope and nature of the ConnectHR’s business, clients, related contacts, methods of operation, operating procedures, and systems. Client acknowledges that the uniqueness of ConnectHR’s Services is crucial to the success of ConnectHR, are proprietary to ConnectHR, and are not generally known to the public. Client recognizes the ConnectHR’s legitimate business interests in protecting the ConnectHR from competition by third-party businesses and individuals who learn about ConnectHR’s methods.
Client Contacts Information. Client shall provide ConnectHR with accurate and complete contact information when registering for or using ConnectHR’s Services, and to update and maintain such information. ConnectHR has the right to suspend, restrict or terminate your use of the ConnectHR Services and to refuse any future use of all or portions of the ConnectHR Services if ConnectHR, at any time, including but not limited to if ConnectHR has reason to believe that Client has failed to comply with the requirements in this section.
Client also promises and agrees that it will not provide ConnectHR with contact information for individuals under the age of eighteen. Minors are prohibited from using or registering for ConnectHR’s Services. By using or registering for the ConnectHR Services, Client warrants to ConnectHR that all contacts are above the age of eighteen.
Removal of Phone Numbers. If members or subscribers of Client do not wish to receive messages, they can select OPT OUT to any phone message they receive. Alternatively, Client may notify Company of this request for the removal of a telephone number from a calling list by downloading a file in FasCast.
When Client, Subscriber or member sends a request, that requests must include the first name, last name, and telephone number of the Subscriber or member that is to be removed from the list. Client is ultimately responsible for ensuring that anyone requesting do-not-call status is removed from Client’s calling lists.
Telephone and Text Messaging Charges. ConnectHR is not responsible for any charges that Client may incur from access to the ConnectHR Services. ConnectHR is not responsible for any charges the recipients of Client’s messages may incur from their telecommunications carriers.
Telephone and Text Messaging Transmission. ConnectHR transmits and receives voice and text messages via other major telecommunications carriers and mobile network operators, and thus ConnectHR’s influence over the timing of the receipt or transmission of Client’s messages is within the technical constraints imposed upon ConnectHR. While ConnectHR will use commercially reasonable efforts to further transmit Client’s messages to the applicable network for final delivery to Client’s designated recipients as fast as possible, ConnectHR cannot commit to, and do not guarantee, a specific delivery time. Such times depend on various network and system-related factors among the various entities involved in the transmission of Client messages and broadcasts across the telephone network and/or Internet. Client may contact ConnectHR for a current list of covered downstream carriers. ConnectHR is not liable for any loss incurred by the failure of a message or broadcast to be delivered, and Client acknowledges that damages for financial or other loss resulting from delivery failure cannot be claimed from ConnectHR for any such non-deliveries.
Terminating and Changing of Services. Client agrees that ConnectHR may limit Client’s use of the ConnectHR Services, including without limitation the frequency and duration for which Client may access the ConnectHR Services, and that ConnectHR has no responsibility or liability for any unavailability or limitation on use of the ConnectHR Services. In addition, ConnectHR reserves the right at any time to limit: access to, modify, change or discontinue the ConnectHR Services, or any part thereof, with or without notice. Client agrees that ConnectHR shall not be liable to Client or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the ConnectHR Services. Client acknowledges and agrees that ConnectHR may establish general practices and limits, which may not be published, concerning the use of the ConnectHR Services, including without limitation the maximum time that messages will be retained, the maximum number of messages that may be sent from or received by an account on the ConnectHR Services, the length of message sent and the maximum number of times, and the maximum duration for which Client may access the Services, in a given period of time.

Client acknowledges that ConnectHR reserves the right to terminate any inactive or dormant account(s).

Restriction of Spam. ConnectHR will immediately terminate Client’s Services if Client is transmitting or is otherwise connected with any spam, other unsolicited messaging activities, or any calling which ConnectHR unilaterally deems in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Activities such as sending spam or other unsolicited messages can cause harm to ConnectHR (and our customer base) in numerous ways including, but not limited to, damaging the ConnectHR brand name, damaging ConnectHR’s reputation for delivering relevant messages, damaging ConnectHR’s reputation for privacy, damaging ConnectHR’s ability to attract and retain customers, and damaging other consumer, customer and business goals, activities, or relationships. ConnectHR retains sole responsibility and discretion for calculating losses; because these and other damages are often difficult to quantify, if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated by ConnectHR; then Client agrees to pay ConnectHR liquidated damages of $5.00 for each piece of spam or unsolicited message transmitted from or otherwise connected with your ConnectHR account; otherwise, you agree to pay ConnectHR's actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated by ConnectHR.
