Estimating offers two types of workspaces through the Site: public workspaces and private workspaces. Individual users may register, free of charge, for a public workspace. Please note that projects created in public workspaces are accessible to all users of the Site. Projects in public workspaces may be viewed and used by users of the Site, including being copied to use as the basis for another user’s tender (i.e. for commercial purposes) and/or used for demonstration purposes by other users of the Site.
Company may from time to time publish project templates in its own public workspace that can be copied and used by users of the Site. These templates are examples only. To the extent permitted by applicable laws, Company disclaims responsibility for any damages sustained by you due to your use of those templates.
Users who do not want their Contributions (as defined below) to be made publicly available to other users may purchase a subscription to an Estimating private workspace.
Subscriptions to three different types of Estimating private workspaces are available for purchase: Essential (for individuals), Premium (for growing companies) and Enterprise (for established organizations and corporates). Each Estimating private workspace has different support and collaboration features.
Operations does not have public and private workspaces. Pricing for Operations depends on the number of users and is set forth in the applicable quote or order form.

For Estimating, the creator of a private workspace will be the initial administrator of that private workspace. If you are the administrator of a Estimating private workspace or Operations account, then you can add or remove users to such Estimating private workspace or Operations account. If you are the administrator, you may also limit the information and data visible to individual users. If you add a user to an Estimating private workspace or Operations account, you agree that you have obtained all required consents to send text messages and emails to such user. You are responsible for all text messages and emails sent by users through your Estimating private workspace and Operations account and you agree that you and such users have the right to send any such text messages and emails. Additionally, the administrator may have himself or herself replaced by an alternative Estimating private workspace or Operations administrator.

You shall restrict all such users from sharing passwords and you agree to immediately notify Company of any unauthorized use of any account or login and password issued to your users, or any other breach of security known by you. Company shall have no liability for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the terms in this section.

Dispute Resolution – Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver – United States and Canada.
If you are located in the United States or Canada, this section applies to you.
You may opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver (“Arbitration Agreement”) by emailing us at email@example.com the following information: (1) your name; (2) your address; and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with us through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement will have no adverse effect on your relationship with us, but we must receive this opt-out request within 30 days from the date that you first consent to these Terms. Any opt-out request received after this deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your dispute in arbitration or small claims court.
UNLESS YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES AS SET FORTH ABOVE AND EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE DESCRIBED HEREIN:
YOU AND COMPANY EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED BELOW, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
You and Company agree to arbitrate – rather than litigate in court – any and all claims or Disputes that may arise between you and Company, as defined below.
For the purpose of this Arbitration Agreement the term “Company” means Company and any of its parent companies or organizations, subsidiaries, affiliates, and each of their managers, owners, officers, directors, employees, or agents. The term “Dispute” means any claim or dispute that may arise out of or in any way relates to your relationship with Company, including without limitation regarding your purchase hereunder, these Terms, your use of the Site, the services that we, our affiliates, and/or our service providers (on our behalf) may provide to you in connection with your use of the Site, including, without limitation, any Dispute based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Arbitration Agreement (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced. However, in no event shall this Arbitration Agreement prevent you, in your individual capacity, from filing or joining a complaint with any federal, state, or local government agency that is authorized by law to seek relief against Company on your behalf. The arbitration between you and Company will be binding, and judgment on the award rendered in the arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which parties to a contract agree to submit their Disputes and potential Disputes to a neutral third person (called an arbitrator) for a binding decision, instead of having such Dispute(s) decided in a lawsuit, in court, by a judge or jury trial. This Arbitration Agreement provides that all Disputes between you and Company shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, you might otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims in court and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited.
The arbitrator’s authority is governed by these Terms. You and Company agree that an arbitrator must follow and be governed by this Arbitration Agreement and may only award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent as a court would limit relief pursuant to these Terms. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees and costs if a court would be authorized to do so and may issue injunctive or declaratory relief if that relief is required or authorized by the applicable law, but that injunctive or declaratory relief may not extend beyond you and your dealings with us, and may not include class or collective action relief. Discovery may be limited in arbitration, and procedures are more streamlined than in court.
Notwithstanding this Arbitration Agreement, you and Company may bring appropriate claims against each other regarding Disputes in small claims court, if the claims fall within the small claims court’s jurisdiction, or, on an individual and not class or collective action basis, before any other federal, state, or local government agency authorized by law to hear your claims.
Any Dispute relating in any way to your purchase hereunder, your visit to the Site or your use of the Site shall be submitted to confidential arbitration only in either Denver, Colorado, or in a US federal judicial district in which you reside, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Company’s intellectual property rights, Company may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any federal or state court in Denver, Colorado, and you consent to jurisdiction and venue in such courts, and arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association.
Arbitration will be in English.
The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Arbitration Agreement, whether through class arbitration, collective action, consolidated proceedings, or otherwise.
Class Action Waiver
You and Company agree that all Disputes between you and Company will be arbitrated individually, and that there will be no class, representative, or consolidated actions in arbitration. If you or we bring a claim or Dispute in small claims court, the class action waiver will apply, and neither of the parties can bring a claim on a class, representative, or consolidated basis. Furthermore, neither you nor Company may participate in a class or representative action as a class member if the class action asserts claims or Disputes that would fall within the scope of this Arbitration Agreement if they were directly asserted by you or us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Arbitration Agreement shall not prohibit you or Company from participating solely in your individual capacity in any judgment or settlement in any litigation brought by a federal, state, or local government on behalf of you or us, excluding litigation brought by any relator or party in its capacity as a private attorney general.
We both agree that this Class Action Waiver is an essential part of our Arbitration Agreement and that, if this Class Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable by any court or arbitrator, then the entire Arbitration Agreement set forth in this section will not apply to any claim or Dispute between you and us. This Class Action Waiver may not be severed from our Arbitration Agreement.
Informal Dispute Resolution
You and Company agree to try to resolve Disputes informally before resorting to arbitration. If the Dispute cannot be resolved by telephone, you agree to notify us of the Dispute by sending a written description of your claim to Company at Assignar Inc., 1644 Platte St Suite 410, Denver, CO 80202, United States, so that we can attempt to resolve it with you. If we do not satisfactorily resolve your Dispute within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice of it, then you may pursue the Dispute in arbitration. Neither you nor we may initiate arbitration without first providing the other notice of the Dispute and following the Informal Dispute Resolution procedure provided in this paragraph.
If the Dispute is not resolved by the Informal Dispute Resolution procedure described above, then either you or Company may initiate arbitration proceedings. If you are located in the United States, you and Company agree that your purchase hereunder and your use of the Site affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1, et seq., applies.
All arbitrations shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a representative, class, or consolidated arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA’s rules are available on its website at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If the Dispute asserted in arbitration is for less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply. If the Dispute asserted is for $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. If there is a conflict between the AAA’s rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control. To initiate arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Dispute and any claims for relief to Company at Assignar Inc., 1644 Platte St Suite 410, Denver, CO 80202, United States. You must also comply with the AAA’s rules regarding initiation of arbitration. We will pay all filing fees and costs for commencement of an arbitration, but you will be responsible for your own attorneys’ fees and costs unless otherwise determined by the arbitrator pursuant to the terms of this Arbitration Agreement or applicable law. We will not seek to recover our fees and costs from you in the arbitration unless your claim has been determined to be frivolous. If you are successful in the arbitration, we will pay your reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. If you obtain an award from the arbitrator greater than our last written settlement offer, we will pay you $5,000 in addition to what you have been awarded in the arbitration. The arbitration hearing will be held at the location in which the arbitration is submitted (i.e. either Denver, Colorado or the US federal judicial district within which you reside) or in an alternative location but only upon mutual agreement.. If you seek less than $10,000, then you may choose to hold the arbitration in person, via phone, or to have it decided based on written submissions.
The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, except as limited by other provisions of these Terms, and will not have the power to award relief to, against, or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator shall make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award by the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA or other applicable law, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
