All intellectual property rights, including copyrights, patents, patent disclosures and inventions (whether patentable or not), trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, know-how and other confidential information, trade dress, trade names, logos, corporate names and domain names, together with all of the goodwill associated therewith, derivative works and all other rights (collectively, "Intellectual Property Rights") in and to all documents, work product and other materials that are delivered to Company under this Agreement or prepared by or on behalf of TopProz in the course of performing the Services, including any items identified as such in the Quote (collectively, the "Deliverables") except for any Confidential Information of Company or customer materials shall be owned by TopProz. TopProz hereby grants Company a license to use all Intellectual Property Rights in the Deliverables free of additional charge and on a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, fully paid-up, royalty-free and perpetual basis to the extent necessary to enable Company to make reasonable use of the Deliverables and the Services.

Company must use the Products for their intended purpose only. Company must not itself, nor through any affiliate, employee, consultant, contractor, agent or other third party: (a) sell, resell, distribute, lease, rent, license, sublicense, or host in whole or in part, the Products; (b) decipher, decompile, disassemble, reverse assemble, modify, translate, reverse engineer, copy, or otherwise attempt to derive source code, algorithms, tags, specifications, architecture, structure, or other elements of the Products, in whole or in part, for any purpose; (c) allow access to, provide, divulge or make available the Products to any individual or entity other than Company’s employees or individual contractors who have a need for such access and who will be bound by the terms of the Agreement; (d) write or develop any derivative works based upon the Products; (e) modify, adapt, translate or otherwise make any changes to the Products; (f) disclose or publish, performance or capacity statistics or the results of any benchmark test performed on the Products; (g) impede, disable or otherwise undermine any component designed to track Company’s usage of the Products; or (h) otherwise use the Products in a manner not expressly permitted.



TopProz reserves the right to take appropriate actions to remedy any breach of this agreement by the Company in the event that these Terms and Conditions are violated. These remedies available to TopProz may include, but are not limited to:

1.      Revocation of all existing licenses.

2.      Revocation of all associated advertising and publication privileges.

3.      Imposition of liquidated damages.

The Company acknowledges and agrees that calculating the exact damages resulting from any breach by the Company would be challenging. Therefore, the Company agrees to pay TopProz the following amounts as reasonable estimations of damages in the event of specific breaches:

-         If the Company posts Content in violation of this agreement, the Company agrees to pay TopProz One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) for each piece of content that was posted in violation of the agreed-upon terms.

-         If the Company misappropriates any User Content or data belonging to TopProz or its Users in violation of any terms of this Agreement, the Company agrees to pay Fifteen Thousand Dollars ($15,000) per record or profile that is exploited.

-         If the Company uses or causes any non-licensed users, software, bots, or manual processes to interfere with, monitor, duplicate, or replicate any information contained on the TopProz Platform, the Company agrees to pay One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) for each record or other information that is interfered with or duplicated.

It is important to note that, except as described above in the liquidated damages provision, the Company will also be liable for actual damages, where the difficulty in assessing those damages is calculable by TopProz. 


In no event shall TopProz, its directors, officers, employees, contractors, agents, affiliates, successors, assigns, or service providers be liable to the Client or any third party for:

1.      Any loss of use, revenue, or profit.

2.      Loss of data or diminution in value.

3.      Any consequential, incidental, indirect, exemplary, special, or punitive damages.

These damages may arise out of breach of contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, regardless of whether such damage was foreseeable and whether or not TopProz has been advised of the possibility of such damages, and notwithstanding the failure of any agreed or other remedy of its essential purpose.

Furthermore, in no event shall TopProz's aggregate liability arising out of or related to this Agreement, whether arising out of or related to breach of contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, exceed the aggregate amounts paid or payable to TopProz pursuant to this Agreement or pursuant to the applicable quote in a 6-month period preceding the event giving rise to the claim.


Company and its affiliates, along with their agents, agree to indemnify and hold harmless all of TopProz's executives, owners, agents, and employees against any potential losses or claims arising from Company's use of TopProz. This indemnification includes, but is not limited to, covering reasonable attorney's fees, demands, and any claims made by third parties. 


In alignment with current best practices and relevant legal considerations:

1.      Initial Negotiation: In an effort to minimize potential dispute costs, TopProz may, with the intent of resolving any disagreements, approach the Company informally before proceeding to arbitration or litigation. The Company will receive notice of such a dispute through written communication sent to the provided physical address.

2.      Arbitration: If the informal initial negotiation does not lead to a resolution, TopProz will seek to resolve the matter through formal and binding arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and pertains to transactions involving commerce. The arbitration will be initiated and conducted before a single arbitrator following the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, when applicable, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for User-Related Disputes ("AAA User Rules"), accessible on the AAA website (www.adr.org). Arbitration fees and arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and potentially limited by the AAA User Rules). Each party is responsible for their own attorney fees, subject to any remedies that may be later awarded under relevant law. The arbitrator will issue a written decision. Importantly, the arbitrator, not any federal, state, or local court or agency, holds exclusive authority to resolve disputes regarding the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement. However, this exclusivity does not extend to the "Class Action Waiver" described in Subsection (4) below.

3.      Parties Waive Class Action Rights: In compliance with applicable law, TopProz and the Company both renounce their right to litigate any Dispute as a class action, whether as a class member or a representative, or to act as a private attorney general, either in court or through an arbitration proceeding.

4.      Mutually Agreed-Upon Rules for Arbitration Proceedings: If either Party initiates Arbitration under this Agreement, they shall adhere to the following rules. The arbitration must be initiated within the same time limits as the relevant statute of limitation provisions in state or federal law. The selected arbitrator will follow the same procedures as if the dispute had arisen in state or federal court, in terms of determining timeliness and remedies.

5.      Severability: Both parties acknowledge that if any portion of this mutually binding arbitration agreement is deemed unenforceable, the enforceable portion will be severed and applied accordingly. 


This Agreement, along with all associated documents and any issues arising from or connected to this Agreement, whether based on contract, tort, or statute, are subject to and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California, United States of America. This includes the application of the statutes of limitations in California and any relevant choice of law statutes of the State of California. This is done without giving consideration to the conflict of laws provisions that might necessitate or allow for the use of laws from any jurisdiction other than those of the State of California. 


The Company acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising from or related to the use of the Service or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year from the date when such claim or cause of action first arose. Failure to do so will result in the claim or cause of action being permanently barred. 


TopProz reserves the right to modify or update the Terms and Conditions of this Agreement, and any such modifications will become effective immediately upon being posted on the Platform. The date of the last update to the Agreement will be clearly indicated on the first page of this Agreement. It is the Company's responsibility to regularly review these terms and conditions. By continuing to use the Services after any modifications, the Company will be considered to have conclusively accepted all the changes made to this Agreement. 


The Services may be susceptible to limitations, delays, and other issues inherent in internet and electronic communication use. TopProz shall not be held responsible for any delays, failures, or damages arising from such problems. 


The Company may not assign, transfer, delegate, or subcontract any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without obtaining prior written consent from TopProz. Any attempted assignment or delegation in violation of this provision shall be deemed invalid. Such assignments or delegations shall not release the Company from its obligations under this Agreement. TopProz, however, reserves the right to assign its rights or delegate its obligations to any affiliate or to any entity acquiring all or a substantial portion of TopProz's assets without requiring Company's consent.


Each undersigned party explicitly warrants and represents that they possess the full power and authority to execute this Agreement on behalf of the respective party they represent. Their signatures shall have the legal effect of binding the indicated party to the terms and conditions outlined herein. 


If this Agreement is terminated, specific provisions will persist and remain in effect, which include but are not limited to Sections 3, and Sections 5-11. 


The Service Provider commits to affixing three "Book Us On TopProz" stickers to each of their company vehicles. These stickers, provided by TopProz, will have dimensions not exceeding 10 inches in height and 20 inches in width. 


Any changes, adjustments, or cancellations of this Agreement are valid only if they are made in writing, clearly identified as amendments, rescissions, terminations, or discharges of this Agreement, and duly signed by authorized representatives of both Parties.


Each Party agrees, without reservation, that any dispute, lawsuit, or legal proceeding arising from or related to this Agreement, including all associated exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices, as well as all contemplated transactions encompassing contract, equity, tort, fraud, and statutory claims, shall exclusively be initiated in the Superior Court of California, County of Ventura. In the event that the said court lacks subject matter jurisdiction, such disputes shall be directed to the courts of the State of California located in Ventura County, California, including any subsequent appellate courts. Both Parties unconditionally accept the jurisdiction of these courts and commit to initiating any such action, lawsuit, or legal proceeding solely in the Superior Court of California, County of Ventura. Furthermore, both Parties recognize that a final judgment in any such action, lawsuit, or legal proceeding is definitive and enforceable in other jurisdictions through legal actions on the judgment or through any other method sanctioned by law. 


Each Party acknowledges that disputes arising under this Agreement, including its associated exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices, are likely to involve complex and challenging issues. Consequently, each Party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives any entitlement to a trial by jury in relation to any legal actions arising from or related to this Agreement, encompassing all exhibits, schedules, attachments, or appendices attached hereto, as well as the transactions delineated herein.
