2. Crew and Prospects
2.1 You acknowledge and agree that we are not a service company providing services through Crew and do not employ any Crew and all Crew are providing such Crew Services as independent contractors under a separate agreement with you. You bear all risk and cost of operating your own business, including the risk of loss. Nothing in these Terms are intended to, or shall be deemed to, constitute a partnership or joint venture of any kind or employment relationship between the parties, nor constitute any party an employee or agent of another party for any purpose. No party shall have authority to act as an employee or agent for, or to bind, the other party in any way. You acknowledge and agree that you are free to determine (i) if you want to engage with a Crew (ii) the Crew Services you select or reject; and (iii) how you engage with any Crew (including the terms upon which you engage with such Crew under a Crew Services Agreement). All negotiations are between you and the relevant Crew for Crew Services and you and such Crew are free to negotiate the fees, timings and details of any Crew Services to be provided under a Crew Services Agreement. Nothing in these Terms is intended to prohibit or otherwise limit your ability to engage, and negotiate with, Crew.
2.2 The Crew Classification Services and any results of such services are provided solely to support your own determination of the employment classification of those Crew whom you have selected to engage with for Crew Services and is in no way a conclusive determination of such classification. Such information is based on: (i) the Crew and your submission of accurate and complete information in respect of any Crew; and (ii) correct use by you and Crew of the Services. You further acknowledge and agree that any results obtained from such Crew Classification Services may change at any time after the date of the provision of such Crew Classification Services for a Crew and/or during the provision of such Crew Services to you.
2.3 As part of the Services, you will have access to a registration page which will enable you to collect information from prospective Crew (“Prospects”) to register their interest in providing services to you and upload their application details. Once a Prospect has been selected by you at your sole option for the provision of their service(s) and you have entered into a Crew Services Agreement with such Prospects, each such Prospect will be added to our Workforce Database. Any details of any Prospects uploaded to the Registration Page and/or added to the Workforce Database shall be owned by us and subject to separate terms between Crew and us. Any result of such services are provided solely to support your own Crew sourcing efforts and the responsibility of determining the Crew suitability and quality lies solely with You.
2.4 As a customer of Liveforce, you may utilise our platform to communicate with your Crew via SMS, MMS and Chat messaging channels. These communications are facilitated by Twilio, a cloud communications platform that allows us to programmatically send and receive text messages using its web service APIs. Twilio is a trusted and secure service used by many businesses worldwide for their communication needs.
2.4.1 Before sending the first message, you must obtain explicit consent from your Crew to receive these communications. This consent is specific to your brand and the specific use or campaign that the Crew member has consented to. Crew members have the right to revoke their consent at any time by replying with a standard opt-out keyword such as STOP, UNSUBSCRIBE, CANCEL, END, or QUIT. This is handled automatically by Twilio and they will be added to a block-list and no further messages will be sent via the messaging channel they have opted-out from.
2.4.2 You are required to respect your Crew’s preferences in terms of frequency of contact and to ask them to reconfirm their consent as set forth by local regulations and best practices. You are not allowed to send any content that is illegal, harmful, unwanted, inappropriate, objectionable, or otherwise poses a threat to the public. All messages sent by you must comply with the rules applicable to the country in which the Crew member lives. If a Crew member is under the legal age of consent in their location, they are not permitted to use our services. We reserve the right to monitor the content of text messages that are transmitted via our platform to detect spam, fraudulent activity, and violations of our Acceptable Use Policy.
