Terms & conditions
1.2. Supp does not serve as an employer of any User on the Supp Platform and Users are in no way legally affiliated with Supp other than as may be described by the Terms & Conditions. Users agree that neither they nor Supp, intends to create an independent contractor relationship, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, principal-agent or franchise relationship and thus no such relationships are created. Supp expressly disclaims any contract, tort or any statutory liability arising in any dispute between Users of the Supp Platform and we reiterate that Supp only provides the services on the Supp Platform to facilitate a Business to find an Individual who is seeking to perform the shift.
1.3. The Supp Platform provides sign up links for Users to create their own account via the Supp website, or by downloading the mobile app where they can use the in-app sign-up option. To complete the account creation, Supp must approve the User account first. At the discretion of Supp, they may limit the participation of Users. This may arise when, but not limited to if a User’s application is incomplete; if Supp does not operate in their location; the User is not legally entitled to perform shifts on the platform; or if there is no demand for a particular role competency on the Supp Platform.
1.4. These terms and conditions (‘Terms’) apply to the use of the Supp Platform and any Supp Services and Users agree to be bound by these Terms. These Terms may be reviewed and amended at any time. Notification of the amended Terms may be sent to Users by email or as a general notice posted to each Users account. The amended Terms will then take effect from the next time a User logs onto the Supp Platform. The continued use of the Supp Platform by any User is subject to the current Terms as amended from time to time and if any User does not agree with the amendments to the Terms, then that User must stop using the Supp Platform.
2. USING THE PLATFORM
2.1. A Business who needs a shift performed must first create an account with Supp. After Supp has approved the account, a Business may create and post a shift ad (“Posted Shift”) which includes the date, start time, finish time, hourly rate and role competency, with a description of the service, as described in clause 8.1 of this Agreement. A Business cannot update a Posted Shift after it has been published, but they may cancel the shift at any time. Supp may also act on behalf of a Business to cancel or post a shift. A Business may offer an Individual the shift after reviewing their profile using the functionality on the Supp Platform. The Business may withdraw their offer anytime before the Individual has accepted the shift. If there are no applications for a Posted Shift before the start time, the shift will expire. A Business should be familiar with Supp’s Community Guidelines before using the Supp Platform.
2.2. An Independent Contractor (“Individual”) who is seeking to perform a shift using our platform must first apply to join Supp. If Supp approves their application, the Independent Contractor must agree to these Terms & Conditions prior to using the platform. After they agree, they may review and apply (“Application”) for any shifts they have received a notification for. Independent Contractors will only receive a notification for shifts which match their role competencies, and which are offering an hourly rate above the minimum hourly rate specified by the Independent Contractor. By making an Application the Independent Contractor confirms that s/he is legally entitled to and capable of performing the services described in the Posted Shift. An Independent Contractor may cancel their Application for a Posted Shift at any time before they accept an offer from the Business. Applications are subject to further terms set out for Posting Shifts and Applying below. An Independent Contractor should be familiar with Supp’s Community Guidelines before using the Supp Platform.
2.3. After an Individual accepts the offer from the Business, both Users can communicate privately using each other’s mobile number.
2.4. Once an Individual has accepted an Application from a Business then the Business and the Individual will be deemed to have entered into a separate contract under which the Business agrees to purchase, and the Individual agrees to provide the Business with the services on an independent contract basis with no guarantee of ongoing or regular work following the completion of the Posted Shift ("Shift Contract"). The terms of the Shift Contract incorporate the terms of the Posted Shift described in clause 8.1 and the additional terms set out in clause 9.2 of this Agreement and any additional terms and conditions agreed between the Business and the Individual. Users agree not to enter into any contractual provisions in a Shift Contract that conflict with this Agreement. If the Business pays any tips to the Individual, that will be on top of the hourly rate agreed to in the Shift Contract. The Individual must provide the services to the Business in accordance with the Shift Contract, unless the services are prohibited by law, by this Agreement, an agreement between the User and a Third Party Provider or by any of our Policies. The terms of this Agreement incorporated into a Shift Contract take priority over any other terms agreed between a Business and an Individual in the Shift Contract to the extent of any inconsistency.
2.5. Once an Individual has provided the services requested by a Business in accordance with the Shift Contract, the Individual must confirm the final duration of the shift with the Business before leaving the venue or event site, factoring in any breaks. If the actual shift duration differs to what was agreed to in the Shift Contract, the Business will reflect this variation when they confirm the total hours in the app. If a Business does not submit the correct duration when they end the shift, this will constitute a breach of the Shift Contract. By submitting the hours worked, the Business also triggers payment for the services. The Business will pay the funds to the Individual after the deduction of the relevant fees set out in the Service Fee Schedule and described in Fees below ("Service Fees"). Supp uses Stripe Payments to facilitate this transfer of funds. After the transaction is concluded by the Business, both the Individual and Business are mandated to provide a review of each other using the 5 Star Reputation System and as an optional extra, they are encouraged to provide a short written review. Supp may contact Users to remind them to complete a Supp service review.
2.6. Following the completion of a shift, an automated shift summary is sent to both Users via email, including the relevant information about the Individual for the Business to legally complete any administration for the shift, including information and documentation in relation to compliance with the income tax legislation or the sales tax requirements. If the Business requires more information about the Individual, it is the Business’s responsibility to request this information from the Individual. Supp takes no responsibility for the Business and Individual failing to perform their own administration to ensure all shifts are legal and comply with relevant legislation.
2.7. The Posted Shift will include the location of the Business where the shift is being performed so it is visible to the Individual. A Business and Individual should never disclose personal details such as their full name, street number, phone number or email address in a Posted Shift.
2.8. The Supp Services may be reviewed and updated from time to time.
3.1. Individuals are required to verify their ID and link a bank account to their Supp account prior to applying for any shifts. Similarly, a Business must link a valid credit/ debit card to their account prior to offering a shift to an Individual. It is the responsibility of the Business and Individual to ensure that valid and accurate details are used. Supp takes no responsibility for payments made to the incorrect bank account, and it is the Individual’s responsibility to follow up payment with the Business when this takes place.
3.2. When a Business ends a shift and confirms the hours worked, the Business also triggers payment for the services. If that payment cannot be made for any reason the Shift Payment will be handled in accordance with this clause
3.3.3. If the Business or Individual want to cancel the Shift Contract and there is no dispute between the Users, they may do so by informing one another via mobile numbers and then cancelling the shift using Supp Platform functionality. In the event of an Individual “no-show”, the Business can end the shift and alert Supp of the “no-show”. In these cases, no payment is made, and Supp will follow up with both Users in accordance with the Community Guidelines.
3.4. If for any reason, the Shift Payment cannot be transferred or otherwise made to the Individual, the Business must contact the Individual and Supp to ensure both parties are aware of the situation. Shift Payment must be arranged at most 7 days after the completion of the Shift.
4.1. Supp has obtained a third party insurance policy which provides cover for Users when performing shifts on Supp. Terms and conditions for these Third Party Services are set out under www.suppapp.com/insurance. If the Individual is relying on any cover provided by the Business, Supp does not represent that the insurance offered by the Business is adequate or appropriate for any particular User. Each Individual must make its own enquiries about whether any further insurance (such as Individuals compensation or general liability insurance) is required.
4.2. The Individual acknowledges and agrees that in the event that a Business makes a claim relating to any services performed by an Individual, and the insurance taken out by Supp (if any) responds to that claim then this clause applies. Supp may elect to make a claim under such policy and if the claim is successful, any excess payable in respect of the claim may be recovered by Supp from the Individual. Where Supp makes a claim and the insurer assesses that the Individual is responsible, Supp is entitled to rely on that assessment. If you do not pay any excess, Supp may also elect to set this amount off against future money it may owe to the Individual.
5. USER ACCOUNTS
5.1. All applications to join Supp must be made through the Supp Platform, or the sign up feature in the mobile phone app, with real and verifiable information. Supp may perform background checks and vet Individuals before accepting them on the Supp Platform. Supp User accounts can only be created in the name of an Individual. However, Businesses including Owners and Managers may create a separate Business account. No more than one Business account is permitted per location.
5.2. Your account is your responsibility and cannot be sold or transferred. To create an account and use the Supp Services you must be able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Supp Services are not available to persons under 18 years of age. If you do not qualify to use the Supp Services, you must not use the services.
5.3. Your verified account must represent the Individual completing the shift and all personal details must be current and valid. While you are registered with Supp you must maintain control of your Supp account. You may not deal with your account (including feedback and associated UserID) in any way (including by allowing others to use your account or by transferring or selling the account or any of its content to another person).
5.4. At its absolute discretion, Supp may refuse to allow any person to register or create an account with Supp or cancel or suspend any existing account.

6.6. Each User agrees that when you enter into a Shift Contract using the Supp Platform you create a legally binding contract with another Supp User unless the transaction is prohibited by law or by this Agreement (including the Supp Policies). If you do not comply with your obligations to another Supp User under a Shift Contract, you may become liable to that other User. If another User breaches any obligation to you, you and not Supp are responsible for enforcing any rights that you may have with that User.

ARBITRATION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
17.1. You agree to try and resolve disputes (including claims for returns or refunds) with other Supp Users directly, instead of filing a lawsuit in court (with the exception of below). Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that Supp may, in its absolute discretion, provide your information as it decides is suitable to other parties involved in the dispute. There could be disputes which, as a matter of law, may not be subject to this agreement.
17.2. You agree that Provision 17 is a licensing agreement governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), comprises a transaction involving commerce, and is not a contract of employment involving any class of workers engaged in commerce within the meaning of Section 1 of the FAA. You agree that the FAA governs the interpretation and enforcement of Provision 16, and this applies to all disputes between the Parties, including but not limited to those arising out of or relating to this Agreement. In the event the arbitrator determines the FAA does not apply, the state law governing arbitration agreements in the state in which You perform Services shall apply.
17.3. Only an arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Provision, including without limitation any dispute concerning arbitration. However, the preceding clause shall not apply to any dispute relating to or arising out of the Class Action Waiver and/or Representative PAGA Action Waiver—including, but not limited to, any claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver and/or Representative PAGA Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, illegal, void, or voidable—which must proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction and cannot be heard or arbitrated by an arbitrator. The Parties agree that any and all due dates for arbitration fees shall be tolled while the Parties resolve a dispute relating to or arising out of the Class Action Waiver or Representative PAGA Action Waiver.
17.4. You agree that all disputes or claims will be resolved in individual arbitration. You agree that by entering into this Agreement, you waive the right to have any dispute or claim brought, heard, administered, resolved, or arbitrated as a class, collective, representative, or mass action, and an arbitrator shall not have any authority to hear or arbitrate any class, collective, representative, and/or mass action, or to award relief to anyone but the individual in arbitration (“Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, this subsection shall not apply to representative private attorneys general act claims brought against Supp, which are addressed separately below. This Class Action Waiver does not prevent You or Supp from participating in a classwide settlement that would resolve or release the relevant claims.
17.5. You agree not to bring a representative action on behalf of others under the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (“PAGA”), in any court or in arbitration, and for any claim brought on a private attorney general basis, including under the California PAGA. You agree that any such dispute shall be resolved in arbitration on an individual basis only, and that such an action may not be used to resolve the claims or rights of other individuals in a single or collective proceeding (i.e., to resolve whether other individuals have been aggrieved or subject to any violations of law) (collectively, “Representative PAGA Action Waiver”).
17.6. Arbitration shall be governed by the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”), except as follows: Unless applicable law provides otherwise, as determined by the arbitrator, You shall equally share filing fees and other similar and usual administrative costs, that are commonly shared in both court and administrative proceedings, such as court reporter costs and transcript fees;If You or Supp serves an offer of judgment under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 68, or any other state-law equivalent, and the judgment that the other Party finally obtains is not more favorable than the unaccepted offer, then the other Party shall pay the costs, including filing fees, incurred after the offer was made; or You and Supp agree not to oppose or interfere with any negotiations or agreements between the other Party and the arbitration administrator, or individual arbitrator, relating to a Party’s portion of the fees.
17.7. Entering into Provision 17 does not change Your status as an Independent Contractor in fact and/or in law.
17.8. Arbitration is not a mandatory condition of Your contractual relationship with Supp, and therefore You may opt out of this Mutual Arbitration Provision. In order to opt out, You must notify Supp by a notice emailed to Supp (firstname.lastname@example.org) indicating Your intention to opt out.
18.1. Either party may terminate an account and this Agreement at any time for any reason.
18.2. Termination of this Agreement does not affect any Shift Contract that has been formed between Supp Users. If you have entered a Shift Contract you must comply with the terms of that Shift Contract including providing the services or paying the price as applicable.
18.3. Third Party Services are subject to Third Party Service provider terms and conditions.
18.4. Sections 6 (User Obligations), 8 (Fees), 11 (Limitation of Liability), and 17 (Arbitration and Dispute Resolution) and any other terms which by their nature should continue to apply, will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
19.1. This Agreement is governed by the laws of State and Country where you use Supp. The Users and Supp submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of their location per the Supp Platform.
19.2. The provisions of this Agreement are severable, and if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision may be removed and the remaining provisions will be enforceable.
19.3. This Agreement may be assigned or novated by Supp to a third party without your consent. In the event of an assignment or novation, you will remain bound by this Agreement.
19.4. This Agreement sets out the entire understanding and agreement between you and Supp with respect to its subject matter.

20. MODIFICATIONS TO THE AGREEMENT
20.1. Supp may modify this Agreement and/ or the Policies (and update the Supp pages on which they are displayed) from time to time. Supp will send notification of such modifications to your Supp account. You should check that account regularly.
20.2. Except as stated in this Agreement, in a Policy, or as otherwise notified to you, all amended terms will automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially notified to you. Each time you use the Supp Platform in any manner after the expiry of that 30 day period or such other notice period notified to you, you acknowledge any changes to the Agreement (including the Policies) and confirm your agreement to be bound by the Agreement as it may have been varied.
20.3. If you do not agree with any changes to this Agreement (or any of our Policies), you must terminate your Supp account and stop using the Supp Services. Except as specifically described in or authorised by this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement and any Supp Policy cannot be amended except in writing signed by you and Supp.
21. SERVICE FEE SCHEDULE
21.1. The Service Fee for a completed shift which is paid by the business is equal to twelve per cent (12%) of the Total Shift Value per the Shift Contract.
22. IN-APP PURCHASES
22.1. Generally. From time to time, Supp may offer products and services for purchase ("in app purchases") through iTunes or Google Play. If you choose to make an in app purchase, you will be prompted to confirm your purchase with the applicable payment provider, and your method of payment (be it your card or a third party account such as Google Play or iTunes) (your "Payment Method") will be charged for the in app purchase at the prices displayed to you for the service(s) you've selected as well as any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your payments, and you authorise Supp or the third party account, as applicable, to charge you. If you purchase an auto-recurring periodic subscription through an in app purchase, your Payment Method will continue to be billed for the subscription until you cancel.
