These terms and conditions serve as a contract that binds the user of the Platform (hereinafter referred to as “you” or “User”) and the operator of the Platform, PairConnex Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “PairConnex” or “us”).
We provide the Platform as a service to our clients, who are the organizers or administrators of the Activity (hereinafter referred to as the “Organizers.”) The Platform facilitates networking opportunities between Users by analyzing the information that is uploaded to the Platform by the Users or by Organizers. The Organizers determine the data on which smart matchmaking and networking are based and the usage terms and conditions that Platform Users must abide by.
Any questions, comments or complaints regarding an Activity, the nature of the information requested to complete your profile or the behaviour of another participant in the Activity should be sent to the Organizer.
To use the Platform as a User, you must create a profile. The content of your profile is determined by the Organizer. A profile is associated with the Activity in question only and is controlled by the Organizer.
Any information you add to your profile may be visible to the Organizer and other Activity participants, depending on the settings selected by the Organizer or by you.
You may not access the Platform using automated means (crawlers, bots, etc.)
The Platform uses services operated by other companies and allows connection to certain other communication platforms, such as videoconferencing platforms. The fact that the Platform offers integration or connection to third-party services does not mean that PairConnex endorses or represents such services in any way. If you or an Organizer choose to use a third-party service, you are responsible for reviewing the terms and policies applicable to that service.
The Platform allows you to create content, in the form of words, images and sounds, including when you fill out the questionnaire to complete your profile for an Activity (collectively referred to as “User Content.”) You are responsible for any User Content that you produce while using the Platform. You must ensure that your User Content is lawful and respects the rights of others, if applicable. You assure us that you are authorized to share your User Content with the public, anywhere in the world, and in particular that such content does not affect the rights of other individuals or entities, including intellectual property rights.
You grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable and transferable licence to reproduce, represent, use, modify, adapt, translate, transform and communicate your User Content to the extent required to render our services to the Organizer of any Activity for which you create or share User Content. You irrevocably waive and agree to waive, in our favour and in favour of our successors and assigns, the exercise of any moral rights that you have and may have with respect to any User Content. You acknowledge that your User Content shall be fully accessible to the Activity Organizer and may be made available to other Activity participants at the discretion of the Organizer.
You may not use the Platform for any purpose that is illegal or prohibited under these terms and conditions.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you may not, among other things, use the Platform or allow any third party to use the Platform in a manner that:
b) Disseminates or promotes the dissemination of pornographic content.
c) Harasses or encourages the harassment of another individual.
d) Involves sending unwanted individual emails or mass emails (spam).
e) Involves sending any kind of malicious computer code, virus, Trojan horse, worm, harmful code, shutdown mechanism or any similar mechanism.
f) Encourages illegal activity or behaviour.
g) Solicits passwords or personal identification information from other users for commercial or illegal purposes.
h) Interferes with or disrupts the functionality of any website, server or network involved in operating the Platform.
The Platform allows exchanges between Users through various means of communication. Since we do not monitor these exchanges, each User is responsible for behaving in a respectful manner. If you feel that a User’s behaviour is inappropriate, please contact the Organizer of the Activity in question.
By using the Platform, you do not acquire any ownership rights with relation to the content that is available through the Platform or any software component of the Platform.
If you decide to communicate with us regarding improvements to the Platform or new products and services (“Suggestions”):
a) We shall be authorized to use the Suggestions without restriction and without any obligation to consult you or compensate you.
b) You irrevocably assign to us all rights, titles and interests that you may have with regard to the Suggestions and waive all moral rights to the Suggestions.
c) You assure us that your Suggestions do not contain confidential information that you are not authorized to disclose.
We collect personal information in the course of using the Platform as a subcontractor on behalf of the Organizers, based on their instructions. We do not process your personal information for our own benefit.
PairConnex may assign all or part of its rights and obligations under this agreement.
Your use of the Platform and the services offered through the Platform is entirely at your own risk. The Platform and the services offered through it are provided “as is” and, as provided by law, without a warranty of any kind, whether express, implied or implicit.
We do not guarantee that access to the Platform and the services offered by or through it will be uninterrupted or secure and that the content available through the Platform will be free of errors, accurate, complete and up-to-date. We do not guarantee the results obtained by using the Platform or the accuracy or reliability of any information obtained as a result.
We do not guarantee that material downloaded through the Platform is free of viruses or other destructive code that may damage or infect your IT equipment or other assets. We shall not be responsible for any damage to your computer or for data loss that may result from downloading information or material from the Platform.
PairConnex is not the organizer of the Activities and acts primarily as a subcontractor for the Organizers. You acknowledge that PairConnex is not responsible for any damages that may occur in connection with an Activity.
Except where the law prohibits such a contractual limitation, PairConnex shall not be liable for damages or prejudice of any kind that you may suffer as a result of your use of the Platform, following your inability to use the Platform or following a Platform malfunction.
This liability limitation includes, but is not limited to, loss of profit, loss of opportunity, property damage, equipment failure, disclosure of confidential information, penalties, fines and fees that may be incurred by or suffered by any Platform User following their use of the Platform.
This provision is not applicable where the law prohibits such provisions.
