StreamWork has different types of users that may use the Platform on behalf of the account holder. The account holder is liable and responsible for all users, whether a Free Seat or a Paid Seat (including Members, Contributors, or Reviewers) and their compliance with these Terms. Members and Contributors are considered a “User Seat” for the purposes of calculating fees.
We call users who use the free version of the StreamWork Platform “Free Seats.” While Free Seats can access and use the Platform, they have access to a more limited set of Platform features and functionality than Paid Seats. While users may be a Free Seat for the duration of their subscription, if a user registers for a free trial, the Free Seat may access the Platform free of charge for 14 days or 30 days for a beta trial. The Platform is provided ‘as is’ with no warranty during each trial.
We call users who use the Platform as part of a paid StreamWork subscription plan (regardless of the subscription tier) “Paid Seats.” The Platform features and functionalities available to Paid Seats are determined by the subscription tier under the Paid Seat account.
Paid Seats may be internal users that are employed by the account holder or work in the same company, organization, association as the account holder (“Members”) or
Paid Seats may be external users that are engaged by the account holder to provide services, such as a contractor or contractor or agency (“Contributors”).
To use the Platform you must be, and represent and warrant that you are, at least 16 years of age and competent to agree to these Terms. If StreamWork has previously prohibited you from accessing or using the Platform, you are not permitted to access or use the Platform.
Account Registration and Use
Account Registration and Confidentiality. To access the Platform, you must register for a StreamWork account by creating a username and password. You agree to provide us with accurate, complete, and current registration information about yourself. It is your responsibility to ensure that your password remains confidential and secure. By registering, you agree that you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password. We may assume that any communications we receive under your account have been made by you.
Unauthorized Account Use. You shall notify us if you become aware of any unauthorized use of or access to your account.

StreamWork will not be liable for any loss, damages, liability, expenses or attorneys’ fees that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge and/or authorization, and regardless of whether you have or have not advised us of such unauthorized use. You will be liable for losses, damages, liability, expenses and attorneys’ fees incurred by StreamWork or a third party due to someone else using your account. In the event that you lose access to an account or otherwise request information about an account, StreamWork reserves the right to request any verification that we deem necessary before restoring access to or providing information about such account, in its sole discretion.

You acknowledge and agree that StreamWork will automatically charge your credit card or other payment account on record with StreamWork on purchase and up to thirty (30) days prior to each annual anniversary of your purchase.
Unpaid amounts are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection and may result in immediate termination of the Platform. The fees for the Platform invoiced by StreamWork will not include any taxes, duties and levies, and you shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the Platform other than U.S. taxes based on StreamWork's net income.

You will reimburse StreamWork any pre-approved and agreed upon costs. StreamWork may change its fees and payment terms at its discretion; provided however, that such changes will not take effect for you until the start of the next subscription term. StreamWork will provide written notice to you for any changes to the fees that affect the Platform purchased by you. Your continued use of the Platform after the price change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount.

Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Most disputes can be resolved without resort to litigation. If you have any dispute with us, you agree that before taking any formal action, you will contact us at email@example.com and provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information (including your username, if your dispute relates to an account). Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with StreamWork, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit.
If the parties do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated, then either party may seek to resolve claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.
The parties further agree that any litigation shall be conducted in the party’s respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND STREAMWORK AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” The notice must be sent within the later of 30 days of the Effective Date.

Force Majeure. Under no circumstances shall StreamWork or its licensor or supplier be held liable for any delay or failure in performance resulting directly or indirectly from an event beyond its reasonable control.
No Waiver. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will be binding unless in writing, no waiver of any provisions of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and the failure of StreamWork to exercise or enforce any right or remedy in these Terms does not waive that right or remedy. If an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be invalid, the parties agree that the court should endeavor to give effect, to the maximum extent permitted by law, to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
Third-Party Beneficiaries. You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
