WorkForce Software, LLC, 38705 Seven Mile Road, Suite 300, Livonia, Michigan 48152 (“WFS”, “we”, “us” or “our”) operates WFS’s websites, apps and services (collectively the “Service”). These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Service. Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy attached hereto as Exhibit A. By using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy. These Terms apply to all users and others who access or use the Service, whether or not you are registered as a user.
WFS reserves the right to update and change these Terms at any time and without notice by posting the amended Agreement on this page. Your continued use of the Service after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. You are advised to check the Terms from time to time for any updates or changes that may impact you.
Use of our service
In order to use the Service, You will need to register with WFS and create an account. Your account gives you access to the Service and any features or functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. Your account will typically use the email address given to you by the company and/or organization with which you are affiliated.
By providing WFS your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, including changes to features of the Service and special offers.
WFS reserves the right to maintain different types of accounts and offer alternative and/ or additional Services to administrative users or moderators that may not be offered to general users.
The Service is not intended to be used by children. You must be at least 13 years of age to use the Service.
When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account access code secure. You must notify WFS immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although WFS will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you shall be liable for the losses of WFS or others due to such unauthorized use.
WFS may refuse to permit your access to the Service without notice and liability, if, in our sole determination, you violate any of the Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy. In addition, administrator and moderator users may be established to manage users and accounts associated with a given company or organizational email address. These administrator and moderator users associated with your company and/or organization may also delete your account or suspend your access to the Service without notice or liability. Upon termination for any reason, you continue to be bound by these Terms.
If you sign up for a WFS account with an email address provisioned by your employer, you must use it in compliance with your employer’s terms and policies.
Some areas of the Service may allow users to post or upload photos, documents, videos, web links, live broadcasts, feedback, comments, and other information (“Content” or, when posted by you, “your Content”) and to share Content with others. You retain full ownership of your Content. We don’t claim any ownership to any of it. These Terms do not grant us any rights to your Content or intellectual property except for the limited rights that are needed to run the Service, as outlined in these Terms.
You are solely responsible for the Content that you upload, publish, display, link to or otherwise make available (“upload” or “post”) on the Service. You retain ownership of your Content, but there are many things that users, moderators and third parties may do with your Content, for example, copy it, modify it, re-share it, delete it, or broadcast it. WFS has no responsibility for that activity and you should not share any Content which you do not wish to be copied, modified, re-shared or broadcast.
We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to reject and/or remove any Content that we believe, in our sole discretion, violates our Acceptable Use Policy. We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce the Agreement, including investigation of potential violations, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of WFS, its users and the public. You understand that publishing your Content on the Service is not a substitute for registering it with the U.S. Copyright Office, the Writer’s Guild of America, or any other rights organization.
WFS takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Content that you or any other users post or send over the Service. You understand and agree that any loss or damage of any kind that occurs as a result of the use of any Content that you send, upload, download, stream, post, transmit, display, or otherwise make available or access through your use of the Service, is solely your responsibility. WFS is not responsible for any public display or misuse of your Content. You understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to Content that is inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and you agree that WFS shall not be liable for any damages you allege to incur as a result of such Content.
As needed to provide the Service or as otherwise permitted by these Terms, you grant WFS and its contractors the right, to use, modify, adapt, reproduce, distribute, display and disclose Content posted on the Service. We reserve the right at all times, but are not obligated, to remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Service including your Content. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other WFS users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other users.
Users may delete their own Content but should be aware that Content transmitted to other users may still be made available by such users and WFS has no control over such users actions. In addition, administrator and moderator users may be established to manage Content associated with a given company or organizational email address. These administrator and moderator users may delete the Content of one or more corresponding users including your Content.
