G2i Employer Terms of Service

Last Updated: February 21, 2020

1. Background

G2i Inc. (“G2i” or “we” or “us”) offers an online recruiting platform (“Platform”) through its website, https://www.g2i.co (the “Site”), that vets and matches web and mobile developers (each, a “Candidate”) based on their talent and skills with companies that are hiring (each, a “Company” or “you”) for three types of engagements: (i) direct hires of the Candidate by the Company (“Direct Hire Services”), (ii) direct engagements by the Company of the Candidate where the Candidate is an independent contractor (“Contractor Engagement Services”) and (iii) engaging G2i to staff and manage projects (“Projects”) through provision of contractor staff augmentation services (“Staff Augmentation Services”).

Direct Hire Services, Contractor Engagement Services, and Staff Augmentation Services are collectively the “Services”. All of the information we collect through or in connection with your use of our Platform is subject to the G2i Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”), which is incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service (“Terms”).

Please read our Privacy Policy carefully before using our Platform. These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy, set forth the terms and conditions that apply to Company’s use of the Platform and G2i’s provision of the Services.

2. Acceptance

You acknowledge that by clicking the “I Agree” button or consent tickbox linked to these Terms or by using or accessing our Platform, you are accepting and consenting to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree with all of the provisions of these Terms, you may not access or use our Platform or hire Candidates you meet through our Platform.

3. Account Creation

You must create an account with us to access and use our Platform. You alone are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for all activities that occur under your account. If you are an individual, you may only create an account with us and use our Platform if you are at least eighteen (18) years of age, have the authority to bind yourself or the company you represent, and are otherwise capable of forming legally binding contracts under applicable law. We are under no obligation to create an account for you, and we may delete or deactivate your account in our sole and complete discretion.

4. Platform Use

After your registration has been accepted, G2i will present Candidates to you through the Platform and you may submit to G2i non-binding requests to interview Candidates. G2i will collect a Success Fee (as defined below) from you upon a Candidate’s acceptance of a Job Offer (as defined below).

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT G2i DOES NOT INQUIRE INTO THE BACKGROUND OF CANDIDATES OR ATTEMPT TO VERIFY THE STATEMENTS OF CANDIDATES (ALTHOUGH G2i RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT ANY BACKGROUND CHECK OR OTHER SCREENINGS AT ANY TIME). YOU AGREE TO (I) CONDUCT ANY BACKGROUND CHECKS, REFERENCE CHECKS, OR OTHER DUE DILIGENCE THAT YOU MAY REQUIRE BEFORE ENGAGING A CANDIDATE, AND (II) COMPLY WITH ALL LAWS AND REGULATIONS RELATING TO ANY SUCH BACKGROUND CHECK, REFERENCE CHECK, OR OTHER DUE DILIGENCE, OR TO THE INTENDED HIRING OR CONTRACT OF ANY CANDIDATE.

5. Job Offers for Direct Hire and Contractor Engagements

If you or one of your affiliates or customers identify a Candidate through our Platform or the Services that you or they wish to hire as an employee or engage as a contractor, whether for a fixed or indefinite term, you or they may do so by extending a job offer (“Job Offer”) to that Candidate. When you or they extend a Job Offer to a Candidate, and when a Candidate accepts a Job Offer, you must inform us via email, including the key terms of the Job Offer (including start date, base salary, bonus, equity grants, any other remuneration provided to the hired Candidate and any additional information that we request). You will promptly notify us if (i) the Job Offer terms change at any time, (ii) Candidate’s contract or employment is terminated based on unsatisfactory performance within ninety (90) days of the date on which it commenced, (iii) Candidate voluntarily terminates his or her contract or employment within ninety (90) days of the date on which it commenced, or (iv) before Candidate’s start date, either Company or Candidate elects not to begin the contract or employment contemplated by the Job Offer.

G2i is not responsible for any contracts formed between you (or any third party) and a Candidate that result from the Services, and does not control, manage, or provide any guidance with respect to the determination of independent contractor or employee status, subsequent agreements between you (or a third party) and Candidate, or services performed by or payments made under any such contract or subsequent agreement.

6. Success Fee

For purposes of these Terms, “Success Fee” means G2i’s then-current prevailing list price for Job Offers made in connection with the Services. You agree to pay the Success Fee in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time the Success Fee is due and payable under these Terms. You agree to pay a Success Fee if a Candidate identified through use of the Platform or the Services accepts a Job Offer within 12 months of the date on which you first viewed the Candidate on the Platform or that we presented the Candidate to you directly, whichever is earlier.

If you circumvent the Platform after discovering a Candidate through the Platform or the Services and subsequently hire or contract that Candidate within 12 months of the date on which you first viewed the Candidate on the Platform, you will pay a Success Fee plus a circumvention fee equal to 25% of the first year base salary (or pro-rated contractor compensation) of the Candidate, together with any interest that has accrued since the date of hire or engagement. Your obligation to pay any Success Fee will survive any termination of these Terms.

If you can establish to G2i’s satisfaction that you were actively interviewing a Candidate before using the Platform or Services, you may (in our discretion) be exempted from paying the Success Fee.

7. Trial Period

If a Candidate you hire or contract voluntarily as a result of the Direct HireServices or Contractor Engagement Services (i) terminates his or her employment or contract or(ii) you terminate his or her employment or contract for cause after his or her start date, in each case within the time periods set forth below, G2i will reduce (or refund) the Success Fee in respect of that Candidate by the following percentages:

 Time from start date  Success Fee Reduction/Refund
 0-30 Days 100%
 31-60 Days 50%
 61-90 Days 25% 

If you terminate the Staff Augmentation Services (as defined below) for cause within seven (7) days of the start date of the applicable Staff Augmentation Services, we will reduce (or refund) the fees 100%. The foregoing discounted rates are our sole obligation, and your sole and exclusive remedy, if you are dissatisfied with a Candidate, the Direct Hire Services, the Contractor Engagement Services, or the Staff Augmentation Services.

8. Staff Augmentation Services

(a) Engagement. If you wish to engage G2i to perform Staff Augmentation Services, you must submit a Project proposal (“Project Proposal”) to G2i, including (at minimum) the name (if known) or qualifications (if no specific Candidate has been identified) of any Candidate(s) required to provide the Staff Augmentation Services, the nature of the Project, a description of the specific services to be provided and Deliverables to be prepared, Project timing, and any other special terms for the engagement. G2i may accept or reject any Project Proposal in its sole discretion. If G2i accepts your Project Proposal, G2i will issue a formal statement of work (“SOW”) memorializing the terms of the Project Proposal and providing an estimate of Candidate hours (“Hours Estimate”) and associated fees required to fulfill the Staff Augmentation Services as described in the SOW. The SOW will incorporate these Terms by reference. Candidates may, in their sole discretion, accept or reject G2i’s offer to the Candidate to work on your Project, and any Candidate rejection does not terminate the underlying SOW.

(b) Fees. Where you engage G2i to perform Staff Augmentation Services, all work performed by G2i (and the Candidates it engages) will be performed and charged at our then-current time and materials rates; provided, however, that we will invoice you for a minimum of 85% of the Hours Estimate, irrespective of the number of hours Staff Augmentation Services were actually performed during the applicable invoice period. You acknowledge and agree that the Hours Estimate is an estimate only and is subject to change as the Project proceeds.

(c) Payments. We will invoice you on a periodic basis for amounts due hereunder, and you shall pay all amounts invoiced as set forth in the applicable SOW. All payments must be made in U.S. dollars. Outstanding balances shall accrue interest at a rate equal to the lesser of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month and the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, from thirty (30) days after due date until paid, plus our reasonable costs of collection and attorney’s fees related to collection. All fees due hereunder are exclusive of, and you shall pay, all sales, use and other taxes, export and import fees, customs duties and similar charges applicable to the transactions contemplated by these Terms, except for taxes based upon our net income.

(d) Performance. We and the applicable Candidate shall determine the manner and means of performing the Staff Augmentation Services, provided they are performed in accordance with the applicable SOW. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that the schedule set forth in any Statement of Work is an estimate only and is subject to change as the Project proceeds.

(e) Change Orders. Either you or we may request a change to a SOW, by providing a written proposal outlining the proposed change (“Change Order”). In the event a Change Order is agreed to in writing by both you and us, you acknowledge that the Change Order may alter the Staff Augmentation Services, Hours Estimate, or the delivery and the fee schedule as set forth in the SOW describing the Project. No Change Order will be binding upon either you or us unless said Change Order is in writing (including an email) and is signed or approved by you and us. Any Change Order shall be governed by these Terms.

(f) Assistance. You will provide us and Candidates performing Staff Augmentation Services for you with reasonably requested resources, information and assistance. If a Project requires us or a Candidate to perform Staff Augmentation Services on your premises, you will provide safe and adequate space, power, network connections, materials, secretarial assistance, CPU time, access to your hardware, software and other equipment, assistance from qualified personnel familiar with your hardware, software and data processing requirements and other resources as reasonably requested by us or the applicable Candidate, whether requested during regular business hours or otherwise. You acknowledge and agree that our and Candidates’ ability to successfully perform the Staff Augmentation Services in a timely manner is contingent upon your compliance with this Section. We shall have no liability for deficiencies in Staff Augmentation Services provided by Candidates or us resulting from your acts or omissions or from your instructions. You will provide us and the applicable Candidate access to Company Content (as defined inSection 15(c)) necessary to provide the Staff Augmentation Services, and you hereby grant us and the applicable Candidate a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use Company Content as necessary to perform the Services.

9. Term and Termination

These Terms are effective and binding on you as of the date that you create your account and can access our Platform, and will continue to be binding on you until terminated as set forth herein (the “Term”). You may terminate these Terms at any time by deleting your account. We may terminate these Terms and your access to our Platform at any time and in our sole discretion.

10. Effect of Termination

Upon termination of these Terms, (a) each party shall return the other’s Confidential Information (as defined below) in its possession or control, and (b) all amounts owed to us for Services rendered under these Terms which accrued before such termination will be immediately due and payable. Sections 6, 8(b), 8(c), 10, 11(c), 11(d), 14, 15, 17, 18, and 20-22of these Terms will survive termination or expiration of these Terms, and that G2i will not be liable for damages arising out of termination.

    – violates any third party’s rights,
    – is unlawful, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of another’s privacy, vulgar, defamatory, or is otherwise objectionable;
    – is harmful to minors in any way; or
    – is in violation of any law, regulation, obligation or other similar restrictions imposed by any third party, including any confidentiality obligations from former employers.

13. Third-Party Content

The Platform may contain links to third-party websites and services (“Third-Party Links”). We are not responsible for any Third-Party Links, and we do not approve, monitor, endorse, warrant or make any representations with respect to Third-Party Links. You use all Third-Party Links at your own risk and should apply a suitable level of caution, diligence and discretion in doing so. When you click on any of the Third-Party Links, the applicable third party’s terms and policies apply, including the third party’s privacy and information gathering practices.

14. Confidential Information

“Confidential Information” means any non-publicly available information that you or we (the “Discloser”) disclose, whether orally or in written or digital media, to the other party (the “Recipient”) that is identified as “confidential” or with a similar legend at the time of disclosure or that the Recipient knows or should have known is the confidential or proprietary information of the Discloser, including without limitation all information related to a party’s business, financial affairs or operations, including but not limited to information related to business plans, technology, source code, product or service development plans, pricing, techniques and methods.

For the avoidance of doubt, our Confidential Information includes our list of Candidates, the information about Candidates we make available to you, any content and materials we use to match you with Candidates and the specific pricing and terms of SOWs you enter into with us. Information is not Confidential Information if it is (i) already known by the Recipient without obligation of confidentiality; (ii) is independently developed by the Recipient without access to or use of the Discloser’s Confidential Information; (iii) is publicly known without breach of these Terms; (iv) is lawfully received from a third party without obligation of confidentiality; or (v) a Company communication to G2i transmitted via the Platform.

For a period of two (2) years after the termination of these Terms and all SOWs hereunder: (a) the Recipient will not use or disclose any of the Discloser’s Confidential Information except as needed to exercise the rights provided to the Recipient in these Terms or to perform the Recipient’s obligations under these Terms (collectively, the “Permitted Purposes”); (b) the Recipient will disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information only to its employees, agents and contractors who have a direct “need to know” for a Permitted Purpose and who are subject to obligations of confidentiality which are no less restrictive than those contained herein; and (c) the Recipient will protect the Discloser’s Confidential Information using the same degree of care that it uses with respect to its own Confidential Information of similar nature, but in no event with safeguards less than a reasonably prudent business would exercise under similar circumstances.

The Recipient will take prompt and appropriate action to prevent unauthorized use or disclosure of the Discloser’s Confidential Information. If any Confidential Information must be disclosed to any third party by reason of legal, accounting or regulatory requirements, the Recipient will promptly notify the Discloser of the order or request and permit the Discloser (at its own expense) to seek an appropriate protective order.

Each party acknowledges that a breach or threatened breach of this Section would cause irreparable harm to the non-breaching party, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, each party agrees that, in addition to any other remedies to which a party may be legally entitled, the non-breaching party shall have the right to seek immediate injunctive or other equitable relief in the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Section by the other party or
any of its employees or agents.

21. Dispute Resolution

For any dispute you have with us, you agree to first contact us (by the means described in the “Notice” section of these Terms) and attempt to resolve the dispute informally. If we have not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally within thirty (30) days of both parties having notice of the dispute, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute or controversy arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms by binding arbitration conducted under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms.

If there is a conflict between the JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in Dade County, Florida. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, Intellectual Property or unauthorized access to the Services.

ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL; YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

The relationship of you and us established under these Terms is that of independent contractors, and neither party is a partner, employee, agent or joint venture partner of or with the other, and neither party has the right or authority to assume or create any obligation on behalf of the other party.

(d) Entire Agreement. These Terms, the applicable SOW (if we are providing Staff Augmentation Services to you), together with our Site Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy, are the complete and exclusive statement of the terms and conditions governing your use of the Platform, and they supersede and cancel all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms.

(e) Severability. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect and be enforceable.

(f) Waivers. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

(g) Assignment. We may assign or transfer these Terms or any SOW, in whole or in part, without restriction. You may not assign your rights or obligations under these Terms or any SOW. You shall require that any assignee, successor, licensee or sublicensee of your contractual obligations by virtue of a sale, exit or change of control transaction pay any fees due or owing under these Terms.

(h) Governing Law. These Terms and your use of the Platform shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida , without regard to any conflict of law provisions.
