2. SERVICES AND ACCESS TO THE PLATFORM
The Platform is an online platform (“Website”), accessible at the address www.pitchandmatch.biz -and Pitch and Match is currently working to make it available as a mobile application (“Application”) - that enables companies with need for IT services to procure such services from Providers registered on the Platform. Therefore, the Platform serves as an intermediation tool to put in relation, through a simplified process, Clients who have a need for IT-related services (that advertise its needs on the Platform in the form of Public and/or Private Pitches Pitch), and Providers that have the necessary expertise and/or workforce in order to perform said services (to this end Providers will display their expertise and available Consultants on the Platform). As such, the Platform can also be used as an internal tool by User to manage its database of employees and commercial opportunities, as well as to enter in private discussions only with its regular commercial partners through the creation of “Private Pitches”.
The use of the Platform by a Provider or a Client will be operated by its Account Managers. Each Provider or Client can appoint several Account Managers as it deems necessary, among which there needs to be at least one Administrator. To access the Platform, each User must create a personal account, providing their email address and phone number and choosing a password (these elements being referred hereinafter as “Access Credentials”).
PithandMatch grants User, solely for its use, a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, subscription-based and terminable licence to access and use the Platform.
The licence granted by PitchandMatch to the User is subject to the following limitations:
a) The Enterprise Portal may only be used through a supported web browser (or the mobile application when available);
b) The Enterprise Portal may only be used by the User’s designated Account Manager.
User acknowledges that PitchandMatch will not provide any legal, financial, accountancy or taxation advice under this Agreement or in relation to the Service, nor will it invoice or handle payment on behalf of a User.
3. FREE AND PAID SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE SERVICES
These Terms are applicable to all Users of the Service, whether such use is free or under a paid subscription.
The initial free licence, named “Discovery”, only entails a limited number of Seats and private Pitches. Paid subscriptions provide for more extended number of Seats and Private Pitches as well as more features. All information about the content of the different types of packages available is accessible here. Users who subscribe to paid Service (hereinafter referred to as “Subscriber”) must also review and agree to the terms of our Subscription Agreement, available here, at the time of subscription and at the time of any subsequent subscription modification.
No one-sided offset or deduction from the amounts due by a User to PitchandMatch is allowed, whether such amounts are due under a Partnership Agreement or a Subscription Agreement.
4. MATCHING PROCESS
As mentioned above, some Users referred to as Clients will advertise their needs in the form of Private or Public Pitches. It is to be noted that posting for simple recruitment needs is only available under the form of Private Pitches.
Pitches shall contain all relevant information on the requirements expected from the Client. For Time and Materials Pitches, such information includes, but is not limited to, technologies expertise (type of technology and experience in the use of the technology) and language expected from the Consultant, location from where the services can be performed, dates of the project, Client’s budget. For Fixed-Price Pitches, such information includes, the type of solution sought by the Client and its budget.
To facilitate the creation of Pitches, PitchandMatch makes available to Clients specific tools and features allowing a User to automatically generate a Pitch from a dragged and dropped document and to automatically generate job descriptions.
Once a Pitch is created, PitchandMatch will review it and will validate, at its sole discretion, it if it considers it legitimate.
Once a Pitch is published on the Platform, only basic/generic information about it and about the relevant Client will be available to Providers (Client’s name might or not be displayed, but, in any case, information about, and contact details of, the Client’s Account Manager in charge of the Pitch management will not be displayed at this stage).
In relation to Time & Materials Pitches, a matchmaking tool will also compare automatically Pitches’ requirements and Consultants’ information in order to notify Clients and Providers of a potential match between needs and available resources, based on several criteria.
Providers will also be able to manually submit an offer in reply to a Pitch (for Time and Materials Pitches this means sharing their relevant Consultants’ profiles).
In order to reply to a Client’s Public Pitch, Provider shall register such Client as a Registered Client (by clicking on the “Register Client” button), this will trigger the obligation for Provider to execute a Partnership Agreement with PitchandMatch. Such Partnership Agreement, when executed, will prevail in the relationship between PitchandMatch and Providers.
After Client receives an offer from a Provider (either submitted manually or through the matchmaking tool), Client and Provider can enter into discussions in order to plan an interview and more generally to potentially enter into a commercial relationship. Once the Partnership Agreement is signed, in case the negotiations are successful and Provider starts performing services for the Client, Provider will have to pay a success fee to PitchandMatch (in the conditions laid out in the Partnership Agreement).
It is the responsibility of both Clients and Providers to ensure that all information they upload on the platform is always up-to-date, relevant and accurate and to reply to their interlocutors in a timely manner in order to increase their chances of doing business.
The final decision of a Client to enter into a commercial agreement with a Provider is left to the sole discretion of such Client, therefore PitchandMatch can in no case and under no circumstance be held liable for any choice made by a Client and will not have to reimburse any fee paid by a Provider to submit an offer.
In case of successful negotiations between Provider and Client shall negotiate their own agreement and PitchandMatch will not be a party to such agreement. As a consequence, PitchandMatch is in no way responsible or accountable for any issue arising in the commercial relation between Provider and Client.
The Platform also allows Clients to share their needs, in the form of Private Pitches, only with providers with whom they already have a commercial relationship (referred to as their “Preferred Providers”), such possibility might be conditioned by the execution of a Subscription Agreement between User and PitchandMatch. However, communications and transactions performed on the Platform between a User and its duly registered Preferred Providers will not be subject to the conditions of any Partnership Agreement (such conditions being suspended for the relation between relevant User and Preferred Providers, from the moment, and as long as, Provider is duly registered as Preferred Provider).
The display and ranking of each Provider, Consultant or Client in search results on the Platform may vary and depend on a variety of factors, such as a User’s search parameters and preferences, requirements, price and availability, reviews and ratings, among others. PitchandMatch cannot be held liable for rankings considered low by Users.
5. USE OF THE PLATFORM, USER’S OBLIGATIONS
PitchandMatch will provide the Service to User pursuant to the terms and conditions laid out in these Terms, as well as in any additional agreement (Partnership Agreement and/or Subscription Agreement). PitchandMatch shall make reasonable efforts to make the Platform generally available for online access by the User on a 24 hours per day, 7 days per week basis. However, User acknowledges and accepts that PitchandMatch cannot guarantee a 100% availability and accessibility of the Platform at all time. PitchandMatch may from time to time temporarily suspend access to the Platform for the purposes of scheduled maintenance or improvement, without prior notice necessary. We cannot guarantee that the service will be fault-free. If a fault occurs in the service you should report it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will attempt to correct the fault as soon as we reasonably can.
The Parties agree that PitchandMatch may make any change in the Service and the content of the Platform, that PitchandMatch determines in its sole discretion to be necessary and/or desirable including, without any limitation, changes in the Platform layout, data communications, User’s and Account Manager’s identification procedures, etc.
· Specific obligations for Providers and Clients:
All Providers and Clients registering on the Platform must provide accurate legal information when registering on the Platform. Based on this information, PitchandMatch will conduct a verification process in order to certify, as reasonably possible, that Provider or Client is a duly incorporated and existing company, having either real needs for IT-related projects or having the necessary expertise to provide such services, and compliant with applicable laws. However, this verification is not scientific and depends on the reliability and comprehensiveness of the information and documents provided by User, therefore, PitchandMatch cannot guarantee to other Users that the information is 100% accurate, complete, secure, etc. nor can it guarantee the seriousness and compliance of a User to applicable laws. PitchandMatch reserves the right to refuse, suspend or terminate, at its sole discretion, a User’s registration on the Platform if it has reasonable doubts about the accuracy of information provided by User or legitimacy of said registration.
Users agree that they bear all risks associated with using or relying on the Platform. Hence, PitchandMatch does not guarantee a successful engagement with any Provider or Client through the use of the Platform, nor does it guarantee the full suitability of a Provider or the availability of a Consultant.
In their use of the Service, Providers commit to provide accurate, honest and comprehensive information about their own expertise and their Consultants’, and Clients commits to provide timely and comprehensive feedback about offers received from Providers to their Pitches and about Consultants seen in interviews. Feedback only reflects the Client’s opinion and not PitchandMatch’s.
Providers and Clients commit to, and ensure that their Account Managers will, use the Platform in accordance with PitchandMatch’s generic data protection agreement, as long as they are not bound by a specific data protection agreement signed with PitchandMatch (in the frame of the Partnership Agreement for example).
· Specific obligations for Consultants:
Each Consultant is responsible to ensure their information is accurate, up-to-date, and sufficient to reflect their personal situation and work experience as it is necessary for the good provision of the Service. Consultants are advised to review or fill-in as accurately as possible fields regarding their availability for missions and for interviews in order to ease the process. In order for PitchandMatch to be able to ensure the best protection of Consultants’ Personal Data, Consultants who decide to upload their resume on the Platform should only upload an anonymized resume (i.e. not including information regarding Consultant’s name, address, contact details, birth date, etc.).
Consultants are advised to check regularly their emails (including the spams folder).
