1. The TULA Platform Provides Assistants to Clients

The TULA Platform is a platform which provides Assistants to Clients on an as-needed basis. “Clients” are individuals and/or businesses seeking to obtain short-term services (“Tasks”) from Assistants, and “Assistants” are independent contractors of TULA that are seeking to perform Tasks for Clients.

ASSISTANTS ARE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS OF TULA AND NOT EMPLOYEES, PARTNERS, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, JOINT VENTURERS, OR FRANCHISEES OF TULA.

CLIENTS HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TULA DOES NOT SUPERVISE, DIRECT, CONTROL OR MONITOR AN ASSISTANT’S WORK AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS (TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW) ANY RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY FOR THE WORK PERFORMED AND THE TASKS IN ANY MANNER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO A WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF GOOD AND WORKMANLIKE SERVICES, WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR COMPLIANCE WITH ANY LAW, STATUTE, ORDINANCE, REGULATION, OR CODE.

Any reference on the TULA Platform to an Assistant  being licensed or credentialed in some manner, or “badged,” “reliable,” “reliability rate,” “elite,” “great value,” “background checked,” “vetted” (or similar language) designations indicates only that the Assistant  has completed a relevant account process or met certain criteria and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by TULA of such Assistant’s skills or qualifications or whether they are licensed, insured, trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for Clients to evaluate when they make their own decisions about the identity and suitability of Assistants whom they contact or interact with via the TULA Platform.

2. Background Checks and Client Representations and Warranties

Background Checks

Clients and Assistants shall be subject to a review process before they can register for and during their use of the TULA Platform, which may include but is not limited to: identity verification, right to work checks, driving record checks, and criminal background checks, using third party services as appropriate (“Background Checks”). Although TULA may perform Background Checks, TULA cannot confirm that each Assistant or Client is who they claim to be, and TULA cannot and does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of Background Check information.

When interacting on the TULA Platform, you should exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety, data, and property, just as you would when interacting with other persons whom you don’t know.

NEITHER TULA, NOR ITS PARENTS, AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS, INCLUDING THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, SHAREHOLDERS, AGENTS, INVESTORS, SUBSIDIARIES, ATTORNEYS, REPRESENTATIVES, INSURERS, EMPLOYEES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS (COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO AS “AFFILIATES”) IS RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE CONDUCT, ACTS, OR OMISSIONS, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY ASSISTANT OR CLIENT OF THE TULA PLATFORM AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU HEREBY RELEASE TULA AND AFFILIATES FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, CLAIMS, DEMANDS, OR DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE TULA PLATFORM.

Client Representations and Warranties

All Clients represent and warrant that:

3. Contract between TULA and Clients

You acknowledge and agree that a legally binding contract with TULA (the “Service Agreement”) is formed when you, the Assistant and TULA agree on the terms of a Task. TULA reserves the right to accept or reject a Task proposed by a Client for any reason or no reason at all.  TULA shall provide notice and proof to Clients of both the commencement and completion of Tasks. The terms of the Service Agreement include the terms set forth in this Section 3, the engagement terms proposed and accepted on the TULA Platform, and any other contractual terms accepted by both the Client, the Assistant and TULA, specifically the amount of Task Hours that are required to complete a Task.  

Client understands that hours will be billed based on actual time spent by Assistant to complete Client’s request, rounded to the nearest quarter hour.

TULA’s role shall be to provide an Assistant who will fulfill the requested Task of a Client.  In acting in this role, TULA disclaims any other agency or authority to act on behalf of the Assistant, and assumes no liability or responsibility for any acts or omissions of the Assistant, either within or outside of the TULA Platform.  

While using the TULA Platform, Clients, in their sole discretion, determine whether they will be present or not when a Task is performed. Clients who elect not to be present when a Task is performed agree that if someone other than them books the Task on their behalf or is present when the Task is performed, they are appointing that person as their agent (“Client’s Agent”) and the Assistant may take and follow direction from the Client’s Agent as if such direction was given from the Client him or herself. If you are a Client’s Agent and accessing and using the TULA Platform on behalf of a Client, you represent that you have the authority to act as their agent and to bind that person as the principal to all provisions of the Terms of Service. Client assumes full and sole responsibility for the acts and omissions of Client’s Agents.

4. Task Hours and Payment

Clients of the TULA Platform purchase “Task Hours” directly from TULA through a monthly subscription package wherein hours do not carry forward to the next month, or on an “as-needed” or “a la carte” basis.  Such payment must be paid through the PSP.  Clients of the TULA Platform will be required to provide their payment method details to the PSP, but TULA has no obligations, responsibility or liability to any Client or Assistant related to such collection of payment information by the PSP.  The PSP shall hold Client’s payment information and utilize such payment information to charge Client’s for the direct costs of certain Tasks, for example if a Task involves an Assistant getting groceries, gifts, or purchasing other items on behalf of a Client at the direction of a Client. Purchases made on behalf of Client will be billed at cost and subject to an additional 3% credit card processing fee.

To help prevent fraud and safeguard Client information from the risk of unauthorized access, TULA and/or the PSP may validate an account before activation and prior to each booking. As part of the validation process, temporary charges may be placed on the account associated with the Client and then refunded within 1-3 business days.

Task Hours shall not be transferrable between Clients of the TULA Platform, but the purchase of new Task Hours may be given as gifts to Clients of the TULA Platform or individuals who are not currently Clients of the TULA Platform, subject at all times to the approval processes set forth in the Agreement.  TULA or Client may terminate any subscription package for any reason by delivering thirty (30) days prior written notice to the other party of such party’s intent to terminate the subscription package.  Any Task Hours that remain unused at the expiration of such thirty (30) day period shall be forfeited by Client.

TULA strives to impress Clients and provide Clients with Assistants that provide efficient and exceptional service.  TULA will work with Clients to resolve issues with any services provided, and reserves the right to provide Client with additional Task Hours in circumstances where TULA determines that the Assistant did not provide efficient and exceptional service. However, Client expressly acknowledges that TULA shall not provide any refunds for any Task Hours purchased from TULA in any circumstance.  Further, TULA reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee of $25 to Clients who book a Task, but cancel it within 24-hours of the scheduled time for performance.

TULA strives to build trust and rapport with Clients as well as with the local business communities in which Client resides.  If Client works with a specific Assistant, or multiple specific Assistants, and determines that they would like to hire such Assistant(s) to work directly for Client on an ongoing basis, TULA would be thrilled.  However, to compensate TULA for the costs related to losing an Assistant, Client agrees that TULA will charge Client a fee of $1,500 per Assistant that Client wishes to hire.

5. Gift Cards and Promotional Codes

TULA may from time to time provide certain promotional opportunities and contests to Clients. All such promotions will be run at the sole discretion of TULA, and can be implemented, modified, or removed at any time by TULA without advance notification. The liability of TULA and Affiliates shall be subject to the limitations set forth in Section 15 of these Terms of Service.

TULA gift cards (“Gift Cards”) and promotional codes (“Promo Codes”) may be available and can be used to buy Task Hours, but may not be used to pay for reimbursement of out of pocket expenses associated with a Task provided through the TULA Platform.

(a) Promo Codes

Promo Codes are an offer by TULA to reduce the amount a Client has to pay for Task Hours. The use or application of any Promo Code is solely intended as a promotional initiative and does not in any way create a relationship or engagement between TULA or the Assistant or Client, or constitute wages, fees or other amounts paid to the Assistant  by TULA. You agree that you will use Promo Codes in accordance with the terms and conditions governing the Promo Code. A new Client Promo Code may only be used once by any Client, regardless of the email address used during registration. TULA reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of a Promo Code by you or any other Client in the event that the use or redemption of a Promo Code was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or otherwise in violation of the applicable Promo Code terms and conditions or this Agreement.

(b) Gift Cards

Gift Cards can only be used in connection with Tasks performed on the TULA Platform, are not replaceable if lost or stolen and have no expiration date. Gift Cards have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for cash except as required by law.

No credit card, credit line, overdraft protection, or deposit account is associated with your Gift Card. If a Gift Card holder’s purchase exceeds the amount of that Gift Card’s balance, the Gift Card holder must pay the difference by another means. TULA reserves the right to correct the balance of a Gift Card if TULA believes that a billing error has occurred. TULA reserves the right to limit quantities of Gift Cards purchased by any person or entity, and to cancel a Gift Card if it believes that the Gift Card was obtained through fraudulent or unauthorized means. Gift Cards and their use are subject to this Agreement, and use of a Gift Card constitutes acceptance thereof.

You agree to comply with all Gift Card terms and conditions.

6. Acceptable Use

7. Tasks involving Alcohol

By requesting a Task involving the delivery or purchase of alcohol, you agree that you are of legal drinking age for purchasing, possessing, and consuming alcohol (i.e., 21 years of age or older in the United States).  You agree that such alcohol shall not been purchased with the intent to resell the alcohol or provide the alcohol to someone who is not of legal drinking age.  You agree that an individual 21 years of age or older will be present to accept the delivery of alcoholic beverages.  All deliveries of alcoholic beverages MUST be signed for by an individual capable of proving he or she is 21 years of age or older. The order signee must provide a valid form of photo identification at time of delivery.  

Alcoholic beverages cannot be dropped off or left unattended for any reason.  If no person at the delivery address is at least 21 years of age and/or cannot provide valid photo identification of his or her age, the Assistant will not render services. All products will be cleared from the order and returned to their local vendor(s), and a $20 return-delivery fee will be charged to the Client. No refunds will be issued under this circumstance.

The Assistant and TULA reserve the right to refuse to deliver alcoholic beverages for any reason. This reservation includes, but is not limited to, refusing service to individuals who are visibly inebriated, individuals who seem to be underage or providing alcohol to someone who is not of legal drinking age, and refusing service to specific buildings for access or safety reasons.

Special requests or substitutions for the purchase of alcohol products will not be honored; all requests for the purchase of alcohol products must be made on the TULA Platform at the time of submitting your Task.

8. Deactivation and Suspension

TULA may suspend your right to use the TULA Platform pending its investigation of a potential breach by you of this Agreement.

TULA will provide you with written notice of its determination. If you wish to appeal this determination, please contact hello@tulabalanced.com within 14 days of receipt of such notice with the grounds for your appeal.

Further, in consideration of the services provided by TULA, you hereby release TULA from any and all claims, causes of action, lawsuits, injuries, damages, losses, liabilities or other harms resulting from or relating to telephone calls or text messages, including without limitation any claims, causes of action, or lawsuits based on any alleged violations of the law (including, without limitation, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Truth in Caller ID Act, Telemarketing Sales Rule, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or any similar state and local acts or statutes, and any federal or state tort or consumer protection laws).

TULA and Affiliates cannot and do not guarantee that any personal information supplied by you will not be misappropriated, intercepted, deleted, destroyed or used by others.

16. Indemnification

You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless TULA and Affiliates from and against any and all Liabilities incurred in connection with (i) your use or inability to use, or your participation on, the TULA Platform; (ii) your participation or instruction to Assistants in Tasks, or your ability or inability to obtain the performance of Tasks; (iii) your breach or violation of this Agreement; (iv) your violation of any law, or the rights of any Client or third party; (v) your failure to abide by your representations and warranties in Section 2; (vi) any content submitted by you or using your account to the TULA Platform, including but not limited to the extent such content may infringe on the intellectual rights of a third party or otherwise be illegal or unlawful; and (vii) the acts or omissions of any Client’s Agents. TULA reserves the right, in its own sole discretion, to assume the exclusive defense and control at its own expense of any matter otherwise subject to your indemnification. You will not, in any event, settle any claim or matter without the prior written consent of TULA.

17. Dispute Resolution

To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to, arising from or regarding your use of the TULA Platform, your relationship with TULA, Tasks, or this Agreement (including previous versions), (“Dispute”), you and TULA agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least 30 days before initiating any out of court settlement, arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is the one associated with your account, with an email copy to the email address you have provided to TULA. TULA’s address for such notice is: 865 N Albion St, Suite 250, Denver, CO 80220.

IN ADDITION, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE, WITHOUT LIMITATION OR QUALIFICATION, TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT AND YOU ACCEPT ALL OF ITS TERMS.

Arbitration Agreement

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND GOVERNS HOW YOU AND TULA CAN BRING CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. THIS SECTION WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION, REQUIRE YOU AND TULA TO SUBMIT CLAIMS TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

(a) Agreement to Binding Arbitration

IN EXCHANGE FOR THE BENEFITS OF THE SPEEDY, ECONOMICAL, AND IMPARTIAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE OF ARBITRATION, YOU AND TULA MUTUALLY AGREE TO WAIVE YOUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO RESOLUTION OF ALL DISPUTES OR CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN A COURT OF LAW BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES BY BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AS SET FORTH HEREIN.

This agreement to arbitrate (“Arbitration Agreement”) is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and survives the termination of this Agreement and your relationship with TULA.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and TULA agree to arbitrate any and all disputes and claims (collectively, “Claim” or “Claims”) relating to, arising from or regarding your use of the TULA Platform, your relationship with TULA, Tasks, or this Agreement (including previous versions), including Claims by TULA, Claims against TULA and Claims against TULA’s Affiliates (including its parent company).

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, this includes, but is not limited to, claims related to payments, any city, county, state or federal wage and hour law, compensation, meal or rest breaks, expense reimbursement, wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, fraud, defamation, trade secrets, unfair competition, personal injury, property damage or loss, emotional distress, any promotions or offers made by TULA; breach of any express or implied contract or breach of any express or implied covenant; claims arising under federal or state consumer protection laws; claims arising under antitrust laws; claims arising under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act; claims arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act, Civil Rights Act, Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Americans With Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Older Workers Benefit Protection Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Employee Retirement Income Security Act (except for individual claims for employee benefits under any benefit plan sponsored by TULA and covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act or funded by insurance), and state or local statutes, if any, addressing the same or similar subject matters; and all other federal, state or local statutory and common law claims.

If there is a dispute about the arbitrability of any claim (including about the formation, scope, applicability, interpretation, validity, and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement), you and TULA agree that this threshold dispute shall be resolved by the arbitrator, except as expressly provided below.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND TULA ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS, UNLESS EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS INTENDED TO REQUIRE ARBITRATION OF EVERY CLAIM OR DISPUTE THAT CAN LAWFULLY BE ARBITRATED, EXCEPT THOSE CLAIMS AND DISPUTES THAT, BY THE TERMS OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, ARE EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED FROM THE REQUIREMENT TO ARBITRATE.

(b) Prohibition of Class Actions and Non-Individualized Relief

Except as otherwise required under applicable law, you and TULA agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Claim between TULA (and/or, if applicable, its Affiliates) and you individually. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND TULA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, OR ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (“Class Action Waiver”). Further, unless both you and TULA otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any Claim or issue any relief on any basis other than an individual basis. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Class Action Waiver shall not apply to California Private Attorney General Act Claims, which are addressed separately below.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Arbitration Agreement or the AAA Rules, disputes regarding the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability, or validity of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which: (i) the Claim is filed as a class, collective, or representative action and (ii) there is a final judicial determination that the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable as to any Claims, then those Claims shall be severed from any remaining Claims and may remain in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the Class Action Waiver shall be enforced in arbitration on an individual basis as to all other Claims to the fullest extent possible.

(c) Representative PAGA Waiver

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Arbitration Agreement or the AAA Rules, to the fullest extent allowed by law: (1) you and TULA agree not to bring a representative action on behalf of others under the California Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”), California Labor Code § 2698 et seq., in any court or in arbitration, and (2) for any claim brought on a private attorney general basis, including under PAGA, both you and TULA agree that any such Claim shall be resolved in arbitration on an individual basis only (i.e., to resolve whether you have personally been aggrieved or subject to any violations of law), 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 Waiver”).

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Arbitration Agreement or the AAA Rules, disputes regarding the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability, or validity of this representative PAGA Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. If any provision of this representative PAGA Waiver is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason: (i) the unenforceable provision shall be severed from this Agreement; (ii) severance of the unenforceable provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the Arbitration Agreement or the requirement that any remaining Claims be arbitrated on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement; and (iii) any such representative PAGA or other representative private attorneys general act Claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. To the extent that there are any Claims to be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction because a civil court of competent jurisdiction determines that the representative PAGA Waiver is unenforceable with respect to those Claims, the parties agree that court litigation of those Claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual Claims in arbitration.

(d) Rules and Logistics Governing Arbitration

In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) must be provided to the other party. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the AAA Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated and modified by the terms set forth in this Agreement, and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if requested by you and if proper based on the facts and circumstances of the Claims presented, the arbitrator shall have the discretion to select a different set of AAA Rules. You and TULA agree that the arbitration shall be administered before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, and if the parties cannot agree within 30 days after names of potential arbitrators have been proposed, then by a single arbitrator who is chosen by the AAA.

As part of the arbitration, the parties will have the opportunity for reasonable discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim(s). The arbitrator may award any individualized remedies that would be available in court. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual Claims. The arbitrator will provide a reasoned written statement of the arbitrator’s decision, which shall explain the award given and the findings and conclusions on which the decision is based.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all Claims in accordance with applicable law, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules).

(e) Exceptions to Arbitration

The Arbitration Agreement shall not require arbitration of the following types of claims:

Nothing in this Arbitration Agreement prevents you from making a report to or filing a claim or charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Department of Labor, Securities Exchange Commission, National Labor Relations Board, or Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, or a similar local, state or federal agency, and nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall be deemed to preclude or excuse a party from bringing an administrative claim before any agency in order to fulfill the party’s obligation to exhaust administrative remedies before making a claim in arbitration. This Agreement and Arbitration Agreement do not prevent you from participating in an investigation by a government agency of any report, claim or charge otherwise covered by this Arbitration Agreement and do not prevent you from receiving an award for information provided to any government agencies.

(f) Severability

In addition to the severability provisions in subsections (b) and (c), in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable under applicable law not preempted by the FAA, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.

Governing Law

Except as expressly provided otherwise, this Agreement and your use of the TULA Platform will be governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the State of Colorado, without regard to choice of law principles.

18. General Provisions

Failure by TULA to enforce any provision(s) of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. This Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between you and TULA with respect to its subject matter, and supersedes and governs any and all prior agreements or communications except as otherwise specified in the Arbitration Agreement in Section 17. However, this Agreement does not supersede other agreements about other subject matter that you may have with TULA.  The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be interpreted in a manner which makes them valid, legal, and enforceable. Except for the “Agreement Prohibiting Class Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” provision in Section 17 above, in the event any provision is found to be partially or wholly invalid, illegal or unenforceable, (1) such provision shall be modified or restructured to the extent and in the manner necessary to render it valid, legal, and enforceable or, (2) if such provision cannot be so modified or restructured, it shall be excised from the Agreement without affecting the validity, legality or enforceability of any of the remaining provisions. You hereby acknowledge and agree that we may assign or transfer this Agreement without your consent, including but not limited to assignments: (i) to a parent or subsidiary, (ii) to an acquirer of assets, or (iii) to any other successor or acquirer. Upon the effective date of the assignment of the Agreement (a) TULA shall be relieved of all rights, obligations and/or liabilities to you arising in respect of events postdating the effective date of the assignment and, (b) the assignee entity shall replace TULA for the performance of this Agreement. This Agreement may not be assigned or transferred by you without our prior written approval. Any assignment in violation of this Section 18 shall be null and void. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of TULA, its successors and assigns.

19. Changes to this Agreement and the TULA Platform

TULA reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion, to change, modify, add to, supplement, suspend, discontinue, or delete any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and review, improve, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the TULA Platform or any content or information through the TULA Platform at any time, effective with or without prior notice and without any liability to TULA. TULA will endeavor to notify you of material changes to this Agreement by email, but will not be liable for any failure to do so. If any future changes to this Agreement are unacceptable to you or cause you to no longer be in compliance with this Agreement, you must deactivate your account, and immediately stop using the TULA Platform. Your continued use of the TULA Platform following any revision to this Agreement constitutes your complete and irrevocable acceptance of any and all such changes, except where prohibited by any laws or regulations in your jurisdiction. TULA may also impose limits on certain features or restrict your access to part or all of the TULA Platform without notice or liability.

20. No Rights of Third Parties

The provisions of this Agreement are for the sole benefit of the Parties and their successors and permitted assigns, and they will not be construed as conferring any rights to any third party (including any third party beneficiary rights) or to give any person or entity other than the Client any interest, remedy, claim, liability, reimbursement, claim of action or any other claim of action with respect to or in connection with any agreement or provision contained herein or contemplated hereby. None of the terms of this Agreement are enforceable by any persons who are not a party to this Agreement, provided, however, that a Client’s Agent may act in the name of and on behalf of his/her Client.

21. Notices and Consent to Receive Notices Electronically

You consent to receive any agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications (collectively, “Notices”) to which this Agreement refers electronically, including without limitation by email or by posting Notices on the Sites.
