2. COACHUP SERVICES.
The Services offered by CoachUp consist of a communications platform for enabling the connection between individuals seeking private coaching services ("Coach Seekers") and/or individuals or companies providing coaching services ("Coaches"). The Service provides a place for Coaches to list their services and experience, and for Coach Seekers to review the skills of Coaches for a potential match. CoachUp does not take part in the interaction between Coach Seekers and Coaches except to provide this forum for information sharing and to collect payments on the behalf of Members who seek to be matched through our Services.
Users and Members represent, understand and expressly agree that CoachUp does not have control over the quality, timing, legality, characteristics or any other aspect whatsoever of the services actually delivered by any Coach, nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions whatsoever of the Coach Seekers. CoachUp makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, and accuracy of the services provided by Coaches or Coach Seekers whether in public, private or offline interactions, or provided through our Services. CoachUp does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of any information provided through this website or our Services, or by Coaches or Coach Seekers who use our Services. CoachUp does not assume and expressly disclaims any and all liability that may result from the use of any information provided through this website and our Services or through Coaches or Coach Seekers listed with our website. CoachUp is not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any User of this website or any User or Member of the Service. All Users and Members, including both Coach Seekers and Coaches do hereby expressly agree not to hold CoachUp (or CoachUp’s officers, directors, investors, subsidiaries, agents, assignees, representatives, advertisers, marketing partners, licensors, independent contractors, recruiters, corporate partners, or employees, hereinafter "Affiliates") liable for any instruction, advice or services delivered which originated through the website and CoachUp and its Affiliates expressly disclaim any liability whatsoever for any damage, suits, claims, and/or controversies that arise or relate in any way to this website, our Services, the information provided through this website and the services provided by or to any User of this website or our Services.
Our Services are available only to individuals and companies that can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our Services are not available to minors or anyone under the age of eighteen (18) unless expressly agreed to in writing by a parent or legal guardian. This website and our Services are currently available only to United States citizens and/or any individuals who are legally in the jurisdiction of the United States and, with respect to Coaches, those that may legally work within the U.S. By registering as a Member and/or using the website or our Services, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age as described above, and that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into this Agreement and that you commit to abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement (and any posted changes to these terms and conditions).
You represent and warrant that you and each member of your household (a) have never been the subject of a complaint, restraining order or any other legal action involving criminal activity or alleged criminal activity, and you have not been arrested for, charged with, or convicted of any felony, or any criminal offense involving violence, abuse, neglect, fraud or larceny, or any offense that involves endangering the safety of others, and (b) have not been and are not currently required to register as a sex offender with any government entity. Persons who have been involved with activities described in “(a)” or “(b)” above are NOT eligible to participate in our Services or to be or become Members.
4. CRIMINAL BACKGROUND AND OTHER VERIFICATION CHECKS.
Members, including Coach Seekers and Coaches may use our Services to engage third-party providers to run criminal background checks and other verification systems, including third party sex offender searches and checks, (collectively, “Background Checks”), relative to Coaches and Eligible Coach Seekers. (“Eligible Coach Seekers” are those Coach Seekers who are at least 18 years of age or, the parent or legal guardian of an under age Coach Seeker who has expressly agreed that another Member may obtain a Background Check upon said parent or legal guardian).
If you sign up as a Coach or an Eligible Coach Seeker, you expressly authorize CoachUp to verify your representations and warranties made in this Agreement. In particular, by becoming a Member Coach or Eligible Coach Seeker you are expressly requesting that a Background Check or checks pertaining to you are obtained and disclosed under these Terms of Service. You acknowledge, agree and expressly grant CoachUp the right to verify your representations and warranties, using Background Checks and to take any action CoachUp deems appropriate in its sole discretion, including but not limited to terminating your membership should CoachUp determine, in its sole opinion, that you have violated any representation or warranty or any other provision of these Terms of Service. You will be prompted during the registration or application process for Membership to grant permission to CoachUp to request Background Checks. If you refuse permission for a Criminal Background Check, CoachUp reserves the right to refuse or to terminate your Membership and participation in our Services without repayment of any fees already paid by you. You also expressly acknowledge that CoachUp reserves the right, but does not have the obligation to verify your representations and warranties made in this Agreement or to conduct any Background Check.
Furthermore, you expressly acknowledge and agree that CoachUp may and is authorized to disclose the results of any Background Check, if you are a Coach, to any person that has obtained coaching services from you and, if you are a Coach Seeker, to any Coach who has been engaged by you. All Members are entitled to receive a copy of the results of any Background Check that they run on a coach or a coach seeker, or which is run on them. Because Background Checks are from third-party providers, CoachUp disclaims all responsibility and liability for the results of said Background Checks.
CoachUp expressly reserves the right, and Members expressly authorize CoachUp to run Background Check(s) at the time of registration as a Member and at regular intervals during Membership, and/or upon request by another Member with whom the requesting Member seeks to do business. CoachUp also reserves the right to charge the cost of the Background Check to the requesting party or to the Member.
5. THIRD-PARTY VERIFICATION SERVICES, DISCLOSURE AND USE OF RESULTS.
To obtain Background Checks, as described above, CoachUp provides access to third-party verification services to both Coach Seekers and Coaches. We provide access to these services so that both Coaches and Coach Seekers can be confident in meeting with and in providing to and/or obtaining services from each other. By becoming a Coach or a Coach Seeker and using our Services you expressly agree that CoachUp and other Members may use these third-party verification services to verify your information, criminal history and background and that, to do so, CoachUp may use your name, address, and other identifying information you provide to us when you sign up for our Services to obtain Background Checks on you.
