The PlanHub reserves the right to limit the number of projects, contacts and companies that can be viewed during any given day.
- NO CONFIDENTIALITY OR USE LIMITATIONS FOR SUBMITTED INFORMATION. You acknowledge and agree that any communication or material you transmit to this website, in any manner and for any reason, will not be treated as confidential or proprietary information and that any communications, or other materials you transmit to this website may be used by the PlanHub for any reason whatsoever at any time without notice to you. You further acknowledge and agree that if the PlanHub decides, in its sole discretion, to use or revise the materials, we may do so through reproduction, transmission, publication, and/or broadcast without permission from or compensation to you.
- ASSIGNMENT OF CONTENT. You hereby assign any and all rights in and to the content and information that you post on the PlanHub website, including all ratings, to PlanHub without compensation. You agree that all such content and information is the sole and exclusive property of PlanHub, and that you have no right to reproduce or publish such content and information, or use such content and information, in any way other than your personal use relating to your use of PlanHub’s services and website. If you use, reproduce or publish such content and information, you hereby indemnify and hold PlanHub, its owners, directors, officers, agents, employees, representatives, Users and service professionals, harmless against any and all claims and demands, including costs, attorneys’ fees, arising out of or related your reproduction or publication of such content and information.
- FALSE SERVICE REQUESTS/REMEDIES. Should you make a service request using a false identity, you agree that such action constitutes a material breach of this Agreement. You further agree that damages under such circumstances, in the form of lost profits, lost opportunity, consequential damages, damage to reputation, and disruption of services, would be difficult to measure. Therefore, any person or entity making service requests or other applications and inquiries using a false identity, agrees to pay damages in the amount of $5,000.00, per incident, to both PlanHub and each service provider to whom such request was made. This amount does not constitute a penalty, but is a valid attempt to quantify damages that may result from such incidents. In addition, the person or entity making such false request or request under a false identity agrees to pay all reasonable attorneys’ fees, investigative costs, and other costs and expenses incurred by the Company, including attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses incurred on appeal, and in determining the amount of reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses. This provision shall not limit PlanHub’s right to pursue other remedies and damages for related and unrelated tortious acts. Further, should a single person or entity make three (3) or more such false requests, such activities shall be deemed to constitute a pattern of false requests under this Agreement. Under such circumstances, the PlanHub shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to waive the liquidated damages provision stated herein, and pursue additional damages, including, but not limited to punitive damages.
- DISPUTE RESOLUTION WITH SERVICE PROVIDERS. You agree and acknowledge that PlanHub has no obligation to address, acknowledge, review, take up, or respond to complaints or disputes with respect to the representations, actions, or services of a service provider. Any inquiries or complaints should be directed to the service provider. At its sole discretion, PlanHub may offer gratuitous, informal, limited assistance to Users who contacted a service provider through the PlanHub website and who are dissatisfied with the services provided. Such inquiries should be directed to PlanHub’s Customer Support. Any User seeking such assistance agrees to have made a good-faith effort to resolve the dispute with the service provider before contacting PlanHub, and further agrees to cooperate, to act in good faith, and to deal fairly in its contacts with PlanHub. The User seeking such services specifically acknowledges that PlanHub is not acting as an attorney, mediator, arbitrator, or in any other formal capacity. You agree that any assistance provided by PlanHub, pursuant to this section is given free of charge and consideration, shall not subject PlanHub to any liability whatsoever, and shall not create any new duties or obligations on the PlanHub. PlanHub reserves the right to terminate such assistance at any time, at its sole discretion, with or without cause.
- SERVICE PROVIDER SCREENING. When a service provider applies for membership, PlanHub takes basic steps to ascertain the credentials of the service provider. Steps may include, but will not necessarily include or be limited to, criminal checks, identity verification, sexual predator checks, and state-wide license verifications. All or part of this inquiry may be carried out by a third-party, and may rely partially or entirely on third-party data and data sources. The procedure may change from time to time, at the sole discretion of the PlanHub. PlanHub has no obligation whatsoever to conduct such inquiry, to confirm the accuracy of any data provided to it by third-party sources, or to undertake any independent investigation. You understand that PlanHub does not provide any guarantee, warrantee, endorsement, recommendation, or representation regarding the qualifications, credentials, reputation, license status, insurance status, financial status, bonding information, corporate status, safety record, discipline record, litigation record, or integrity of any service provider. You agree and understand that the process is not error free, does not constitute a detailed background check, and is extremely limited in scope. You understand that, even if steps to ascertain the credentials of service providers are taken at the time a service provider registers with PlanHub, the status of the service provider may change over time. In addition, PlanHub relies to some degree on the representations of the service providers themselves. You agree and acknowledge that PlanHub has a right to rely on such information without independently verifying the same and without incurring any liability. Consequently, you understand and agree that it is solely your responsibility to research, ascertain, confirm and verify the license requirements, license status, qualifications, safety record, disciplinary record, insurance status, corporate status, bonding information, integrity, and other qualifications of a service provider. Determining whether a service provider is properly licensed to perform a specific task within a specific locality can be a complex task, and you should consult with the appropriate state agency, the county and local building departments, and other license authorities when making such a determination. In addition, you should ask for a copy of the license prior to entering into contract. PLANHUB DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES RELATED TO THE SERVICE PROVIDER SCREENING PROCESS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, EXPRESS WARRANTIES, IMPLIED WARRANTIES, WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, AND ALL OTHER REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF ANY TYPE. PLANHUB STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU DO NOT USE OR HIRE AN UNLICENSEDCONTRACTOR. AS A MATERIAL INCENTIVE FOR PLANHUB TOPERMIT USE OF ITS WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO RELEASE PLANHUB FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR INSUFFICIENT SCREENING PROCEDURES, AND YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ASCERTAINING AND VERIFYING THE CREDENTIALS AND CURRENT STATUS OF SERVICE PROVIDERS.
