Lingotek Translation Management System End User License Agreement

Lingotek, Inc. (“Lingotek”) operates an online translation management system (“TMS”) either (i) available directly to end users; or (ii) on behalf of certain business entities (each a “Company”); and through which such end users, Lingotek or Companies may procure services from independent contractors (“Services”). You, as an end user, and, in the case that you represent a corporation or other organization, that corporation or organization (collectively, “You” or the “Supplier”), agree to the following as express consideration of Your use of the TMS (these terms and conditions, together with the Lingotek Privacy Policy, collectively, the “Agreement”). The Agreement describes the terms and conditions under which You may access and use the TMS, to perform Services.

If You do not agree to be bound by this Agreement, do not submit any information and do not access, view download or otherwise use the TMS.

If at any time You believe You are entitled or obligated to terms and conditions different from this Agreement and wish to use, or continue use, of the TMS, You will promptly provide Lingotek with detailed written notice at least thirty (30) days before You begin such use, or re-use, of the TMS in a manner contrary to this Agreement, so that Lingotek may assess and provide a suitable manner to remedy the situation to the extent it deems necessary.

BY REGISTERING FOR AN ACCOUNT OR USING THE TMS: (1) You acknowledge that you have read the entire Agreement; (2) you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement; and (3) IF APPLICABLE, the person REGISTERING FOR THE ACCOUNT represents and warrants that he or she has the authority to bind Supplier to the terms of this Agreement. All uses of Supplier’s Account and the TMS are governed by this Agreement.

Lingotek may modify or revise these terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time, and You agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions to the extent You continue to access the TMS following notification of such modifications or revisions to this Agreement. By continuing to use the TMS, You consent to any updates to this Agreement.
