Introduction to Auxo
Auxo is a social network and an online platform for professionals to “Increase Growth” as they gather, share, and grow their knowledge and insights with one another. Our goal is to allow professionals to become successful as they create and deliver their own personal content and share their unique life perspectives, experience, ideas and advice to help solve issues or problems for one another. In doing so they will build a reputation and promote their business or services. Our platform allows registered Members to share their professional identity, engage with one another, create valuable digital content, and build a platform for their business or services they offer. It is a place for Members to view and create content.
This Website is offered and available to all Users who are 18 years of age or older and are residents of and located in the United States. By using this Website, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with the Company and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Website.
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Website, and any service or material we provide on the Website, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Website is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Website, or the entire Website, to certain Users, including Members.
Auxo is a platform that allows Users that create an account with us pursuant to Section 4 to become Auxo Clients and/or Auxo Providers. Auxo Clients are persons seeking to obtain some form of professional services. Auxo Providers are persons seeking to provide some form of professional services to others. Auxo only facilitates connections and matching between Auxo Clients and Auxo Providers and is not responsible for the performance of any services rendered by any Auxo Provider.
AUXO IS NOT AN AUXO PROVIDER AND DOES NOT PERFORM ANY AUXO PROVIDER SERVICES, NOR DOES AUXO DIRECTLY EMPLOY INDIVIDUALS TO OFFER PROFESSIONAL SERVICES. AUXO DOES NOT SUPERVISE OR HAVE CONTROL OVER ANY ASPECT OF THE PROFESSIONAL SERVICES PERFORMED BY ANY AUXO PROVIDER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE QUALITY OR TIMELINESS OF SUCH SERVICES. AUXO MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE RELIABILITY, SUITABILITY, TIMELINESS, OR ACCURACY OF SERVICES PROVIDED BY AUXO PROVIDERS, WHETHER IN ONLINE OR OFFLINE INTERACTIONS.
Connecting Auxo Clients and Auxo Providers
Auxo Clients may directly request a consultation from any Auxo Provider and/or post a job request using the Auxo Provider Match feature of the Website (“Auxo Provider Match”). We reserve the right to keep all jobs posted using the Auxo Provider Match feature not publicly visible and to use such posted jobs solely in connection with our Auxo Provider Match service.
Following any direct consultation request or any match made using the Auxo Provider Match service, the applicable Auxo Client and Auxo Provider shall together agree on the terms of the services to be provided, if any, by such Auxo Provider to such Auxo Client (a “Services Agreement”). Each Auxo Client is solely responsible for, and has complete discretion with respect to, selecting an Auxo Provider with whom to enter into a Services Agreement. Auxo Clients should choose Auxo Providers with whom they work carefully, as they do so at their own risk. Please note that when entering into a Services Agreement with an Auxo Provider or Auxo Client, such Auxo Provider or Auxo Client may require you to share your personal information, tax identification number, or other related information. Whether to share such information with such Auxo Provider or Auxo Client is entirely at your discretion and shall be done at your own risk.
EACH MEMBER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT AUXO IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE A PARTY TO ANY SERVICES AGREEMENT AND AUXO SHALL NOT HAVE ANY OBLIGATIONS UNDER ANY SUCH SERVICES AGREEMENT. Each Auxo Provider assumes full and sole responsibility for the provision of Auxo Provider services agreed to under any Services Agreement to which such Auxo Provider is a party, for the collection of any and all fees, payment, and compensation owed for services rendered, and for compliance with all federal, state and local income tax, sales tax, use tax or other tax requirements. Auxo Clients shall pay for services rendered pursuant to a Services Agreement directly to the applicable Auxo Provider and not through Auxo. ALL DISPUTES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION REQUESTS FOR REFUNDS, DISCOUNT, MODIFICATIONS AND UNSATISFACTORY WORK PRODUCT, MUST BE NEGOTIATED BETWEEN THE APPLICABLE AUXO CLIENT AND AUXO PROVIDER.
Auxo Clients and Auxo Providers agree to abide by the following standards, the failure of which could result in the termination of such Member’s Auxo account in accordance with Section 10:
Auxo does not and is not obligated to:
Feedback; Ratings; Reviews and Testimonials
Certain services, resources, functions and other material may only be available to Members that have registered accounts with us. We provide different types and levels of membership and have varying fee structures associated with each, as set forth in Section 5.
You agree not to register for more than one Auxo Client account and one Auxo Provider account, without our express written permission. You agree not to allow or ask another person to create an account on your behalf, for your use, or for your benefit.
You may choose your own user name (subject to availability) and password. You agree to keep confidential your user name, password, and any other security information that you provide us. You must not disclose such information to any other person or third party. As between you and others, your account, if any, belongs to you. You acknowledge that your account, if any, is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to this Website or portions of it using your user name, password or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.
When you register for an account, your Profile Information and any other information you may provide may be subject to verification and validation from third party databases or verification of one or more official government or legal documents that confirm your identity and your ability to represent your services and business as a Member on our site. You authorize Auxo, directly or through one or more third parties, to make any inquiries necessary to validate your identity and confirm ownership of your business, any obtained and validated certifications, licenses, or training related to services you provide which are subject to applicable law. When requested, you must provide us with accurate, true, and updated information about you and your business. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, Auxo shall have no duty to verify and/or validate any information provided by any Member or other User.
It is free to create an Auxo Client account. An Auxo Provider account may be established for an initial one-time fee and maintained for a periodic fee that varies depending on the level of desired membership (collectively “Fees”). All Fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD) and we are not responsible for any currency fluctuations, exchange rate variances, or third party charges associated with any payments or Payment Methods associated with any currency other than US Dollars.
Each membership level for an Auxo Provider entitles such Auxo Provider to a certain number of “Leaf Coins” (“Leaf Coins” and “Leaf Tokens”) per month, which may be used to conduct searches for Auxo Clients using the Auxo Provider Match feature of our Website. Auxo Providers may purchase additional Leaf Coins at any time, subject to any cap associated with such Auxo Provider’s membership level. Leaf Coins only represent virtual leads regarding potential Auxo Clients. Leaf Coins do not retain any cash value nor are they redeemable for cash or credit. Once they have been deposited into our Auxo Provider Match service, such deposit is final and the deposited Leaf Coins will not be refunded or otherwise credited back into your account. Depending on an Auxo Provider’s level of membership, Leaf Coins not used by the end of the month may or may not carry over into the next month. Our current fee schedule and Leaf Coin roll-over policies for the different Auxo Provider membership levels may be found at [FEE SCHEDULE].
Auxo reserves the right to change any membership fees, change the number of Leaf Coins included in any membership level, change the price of each additional Leaf Coin, change the Leaf Coin roll-over policy associated with any membership level or institute new fees at any time. Changes are effective for new Members once posted on our Website and will become effective for existing Members at the end of the subscription period associated with such Member’s account during which such change was posted on our Website. Additionally, Auxo reserves the right to collect any taxes on membership fees, Leaf Coins and any other amounts due and owing to us, as may be required by law.
When you create an account with us, you must provide us with your payment information (e.g. credit card, bank account information for direct withdrawal, [PayPal account information], etc.) (your “Payment Method”). You expressly authorize us to charge all Fees associated with your account, and any applicable taxes, to your provided Payment Method in accordance with our fee schedule and billing practices. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include, without limitation, promotional offers, changing your level of membership, and changes in our fees. Confirmation of payment will be sent to the email address associated with your Member account.
Your membership billing period begins on the date that Auxo receives payment from you and shall continue thereafter in accordance with our fee schedule and billing practices associated with your level of membership, until you cancel or change your membership level. Unless you terminate your membership level prior to the last day of your periodic subscription, your subscription for your then–current membership level shall automatically renew. If you upgrade your membership level, it will result in a new billing date, effective upon the date of payment for the additional Fees, if applicable, subject to any credit you may receive for any unused portions of Fees paid with respect to your existing membership level. If you downgrade your membership level, the downgrade will go into effect at the beginning of the next billing period and you will not receive a refund or credit for any fees already paid.
You will have 30 days from the initial date you register for a specific membership level, to cancel such membership level and request a full refund of Fees paid with respect thereto. After such 30 day period, WE WILL NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDIT FOR ANY FEES ALREADY PAID EVEN IF YOU LATER CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP OR YOUR ACCOUNT IS SUSPENDED OR TERMINATED BY US PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD. ADDITIONALLY, AUXO MAY CHARGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD AN EARLY TERMINATION FEE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR BILLING PRACTICES, IF YOU VOLUNTARILY TERMINATE YOUR MEMBERSHIP WITH US AFTER THE INITIAL 30 DAY PERIOD AND PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD.
You are responsible for keeping your Payment Method on file with us up-to-date and you expressly acknowledge and agree if for any reason we are unable to charge your Payment Method, due to expiration, insufficient funds, lack of updated payment information, or otherwise, you shall remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and you authorize us to continue billing your Payment Method, until it is updated, at which point we may begin to bill your new Payment Method. If we cannot collect the full amount of moneys owed to us, for Fees, taxes, or otherwise for any reason, or if we receive notification of a reversal, chargeback, or payment dispute, or we are charged a penalty for charging your Payment Method, we may notify you of such uncollected fees, reversal, dispute, penalty or otherwise. If you do not remedy such reversal, chargeback, dispute or penalty within 10 days after receiving notice from us, we may suspend your account. If you do not remedy such reversal, chargeback, dispute or penalty within 30 days after receiving notice from us, we may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment, and may, without further notice to you, terminate your account. We also reserve the right to charge you administrative fees and processing fees for tasks performed outside the normal scope of services offered by us in accordance with our standard billing practices. In addition to all Fees, taxes and other amounts that you have authorized us to charge you, you expressly agree that we may bill you for any administrative or legal fees incurred by us due to payment disputes brought by you, your bank, credit card company, or other Payment Method processor that are ultimately resolved in our favor by a court of law, up to a total amount permitted by law.
