What is the Talent Platform?

You agree not to use the Talent Platform other than in strict compliance with these Terms.
Relationship with Beeline. You acknowledge that You are not an employee of Beeline and that Your access to the Talent Platform does not make You an employee of either Beeline or any particular Client.
Eligibility to Use the Talent Platform.
Eligibility. In order to register, access, or use the Talent Platform, you must be an adult over eighteen (18) years of age in good standing with Beeline. By agreeing to these Terms, You acknowledge that You meet these eligibility requirements. Being eligible for the Talent Platform does not mean that you are eligible for an Opportunity. Clients may have additional eligibility requirements with respect to Opportunities.
Prohibited Actions. In order to remain in good standing with Beeline, You must not engage in any of the following prohibited actions: (i) engage in any conduct that violates these Terms; (ii) attempt to circumvent the Talent Platform in any way, including by dealing outside of the Talent Platform with any Client introduced to You or Opportunities made available to You through the Talent Platform; (iii) provide false information, or information that Beeline is unable to verify or authenticate; or (iv) engage in any conduct that may cause financial loss or legal liability for Beeline, its Clients, or You.
Account Creation and Security. You will be required to create an account and agree to keep any user identification, password, or other confidential information a secret. You agree that you will not share a Talent Platform account or information with anyone else and will follow Beeline’s rules and the law. As between You and others, Your account belongs to You. You agree to (1) choose a strong and secure password, (2) keep Your password secure and confidential, and (3) not transfer any part of Your account. You are responsible for any activity on or through Your account unless You promptly close it or report misuse.
Termination of Access. Beeline may in its sole discretion suspend or terminate Your access to the Talent Platform at any time and for any reason or for no reason at all, including if You engage in any of the foregoing prohibited actions, and such termination shall not operate to limit any remedies available to Beeline.
Documents and Information You Provide to Beeline.
Information Collected. You may provide information to Beeline during registration or in the course of Your use of the Talent Platform. You are solely responsible for Your personal information and acknowledge that Beeline acts only as a conduit for the online distribution and publication of Your information. These Terms incorporate the Talent Privacy Statement available at Beelinetowork.com which describes how we collect, use, share, and store Your personal information. By agreeing to these Terms, You also agree to the terms of the Talent Privacy Statement, which may be modified from time to time. You also specifically agree and hereby consent to Beeline’s use of Google Maps to calculate the distance between the address provided on your account profile and Opportunities based on distance parameters established by each Client. For any questions regarding Beeline’s commitment to privacy, please refer to the Talent Privacy Statement or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accuracy of Information Provided. You agree to provide complete and accurate information about Yourself, including but not limited to Your name, work history, education, experience, and capabilities to perform an Opportunity. Beeline may seek to verify any information You provide and its inability to do so may result in termination of Your rights to access the Talent Platform or to receive Opportunities. You agree that Beeline shall not be liable for its inability to verify any information You provide.
Permission to Share Information. By providing information to Beeline or submitting to background checks, drug testing, or other forms of verification You consent to Beeline sharing this information with Clients as appropriate to facilitate the purpose of the Talent Platform and these Terms. To accomplish this purpose, You hereby grant Beeline a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise all rights You have in Your information in any media now known or not currently known. Other than personal information as defined in the Talent Privacy Statement, all data derived or collected by Beeline from any user of the Talent Platform (including but not limited to statistical information, aggregated information, IP addresses, or other relevant data) shall belong to Beeline and its Clients, and You agree that Beeline and its Clients shall have the perpetual right to use such data as they determine in their sole discretion (even if You terminate Your account or cease use of the Talent Platform). You acknowledge that by using the Talent Platform You are sending data to Clients and their agents (such as managed services providers and vendor management systems) over which Beeline has no control.
Use of the Talent Platform.
Your Profile and the Matching Process. You may set up Your profile to include information about Yourself, including but not limited to Your preferred payment model (“Payment Preference,” for example, Payrollee (W2) and Independent Contractor (1099)), Your role, Your skills, Your rates, Your availability as designated by a toggle switch on Your dashboard (the “Availability Filter”), and Your location. Information entered on Your profile will be input in a mathematic equation that derives a match percentage with a Client’s Opportunity criteria (the “PowerMatch Algorithm”) for purposes of suggesting Talent to Clients in response to Opportunities. A Client may also designate you as “Preferred Talent” to be included in that Client’s “Preferred Talent Pool” for purposes of a Client inviting Talent to respond to Opportunities or extending offers to perform the work specified in an Opportunity (“Offer”). You agree that Beeline does not make hiring recommendations to Clients and is not responsible for Your inclusion or exclusion in a Client’s Preferred Talent Pool or in Client decisions based on Your ranking in the PowerMatch Algorithm or otherwise. Beeline does not guarantee any visibility, employer interest, job offers, or Opportunities as a result of Your use of the Talent Platform.
Receiving Opportunities. Clients may invite You and other Talent to respond to Opportunities issued through the Talent Platform. Opportunities may specify: (i) the identity of the Client; (ii) a description of the work to be performed in relation to the Opportunity; (iii) the compensation associated with the Opportunity; (iv) the dates and times for the work described in the Opportunity to be performed; and (v) any “Flow-Through Provisions” a Client requires as a condition to accepting an Opportunity and performing the work specified in the Opportunity (including but not limited to entering into confidentiality agreements). By responding to the Opportunity, You agree to all terms described in the Opportunity; if You do not agree with any terms described in the Opportunity You must decline the Opportunity.
Responding to Opportunities. If You agree to all terms and are qualified to perform the work specified in an Opportunity, You may respond to it by applying to the opportunity invitation. You may also communicate with Clients through the Talent Platform. You acknowledge that You may be required to submit to a background test, drug test, interview, or other review process in order to be considered by a Client for an Opportunity.
Accepting Offers. A Client may extend You an Offer, which You may accept or reject. Clients make their own hiring decisions, and You agree that Beeline will not be liable for any such decision. You represent, warrant, and agree that You will not accept any Offer unless You have the skills required to perform the work specified in the Opportunity related to such Offer. Beeline shall not be required to provide You with training or instruction of any kind. You further represent and warrant that You hold all business licenses required to complete any Offer that You accept, if applicable. You represent that You are not prohibited by any other agreement or understanding from working for any Client for which You accept an Offer. Beeline will not be liable for any decision or action You take with respect to or in reliance on an Opportunity or Offer. After accepting an Offer through the Talent Platform, you will complete the hiring process (including any required contracts or other onboarding requirements) directly with the Client, and you agree that Beeline will not be liable for any claims with respect to this process (including but not limited to offers which are withdrawn or modified).
Payment. You must contract directly with an applicable Client or payroller to receive payment for services You perform. Beeline does not provide payment for services and is not liable for any claims of non-payment.
Performance. You acknowledge that Beeline has no continued involvement with respect to any Opportunities following Your acceptance of an Offer. Beeline is not responsible for any events occurring after Your acceptance of an Offer or outside of the Talent Platform.
