Terms & Conditions

Welcome To Thesaltysoldier!

Thanks for using our website to get stuff done. We appreciate how hard it is to organize and manage contractors to support your life, business, and property and it is our aim to make this as simple and painless a process as possible.


What we do

Thesaltysoldier is Software-as-a-Service for users that treats contractor services like products you can buy in a store. You pay contractors for standardized units of work, "Tasks," rather than hours of labor. There's no time-consuming contractor bidding required you just specify your location, select and describe your desired service, choose your desired quality, set your preferred schedule, confirm your contractor, and pay. We take care of the scheduling, contractor interaction, and follow-up. It's a revolutionary way to simplify your life and lower your costs.

Highlight conditions of use

Thesaltysoldier understands how important it is for you to understand your legal rights and responsibilities as it relates to your use of our Site and/or Services. We spell out those rights and responsibilities completely in our Conditions of Use below. We also know that legal documents can be confusing and take time to read, so we have summarized the basics of the Conditions of Use in plain English here. Remember, the Conditions of Use are what you actually agree to when you use Thesaltysoldier and this summary is not a substitute for reading the actual terms themselves.

Also there is no tolerance for objectionable content or abusive users. This kind of activity is strictly prohibited in app.

Your Relationship with Thesaltysoldier

  1. You must follow any Conditions of Use connected with our Site.
  2. Whenever you use our Site and Services your actions fall under the terms of a legal contract with us.
  3. This contract is made up of the Conditions of Use and any relationship you enter into with a Contractor.
  4. If you violate the Conditions of Use by providing inaccurate payment information, or causing grief for Contractors, we can terminate you from the Site.
  5. You can stop using our Services at any time, although we will be sorry to see you go. Sometimes you may incur fees for canceling Services if you prematurely terminate a long-term contract that has not yet ended.
  6. While we don't plan to discontinue any service, we reserve the right to stop providing services to you or to add or create new limits to our Services at any time.
  7. Since the Services are generally performed at a physical location, we will need to share certain of your personal information with the Contractor(s) so that he/she/they can complete the Services you ordered.
  8. You agree to arbitrate any matters in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Thesaltysoldier's Relationship with You

  1. Thesaltysoldier is committed to safeguarding your privacy online (please review our Privacy Policy).
  2. While we cannot guarantee all work performed, we are committed to delivering satisfactory work, so help us out by promptly letting us know if there is a problem with any Tasks.

About Your Responsibilities

Our goal is to put you back in charge of your life and business so that you are no longer at the mercy of contractors who never show up when they say they will, do not perform at the level you expect, and charge you by rule-of-thumb. With that change in accountability come some responsibilities:

  1. You are responsible for accurately describing the Tasks you would like performed.
  2. You are responsible to pay for all the Services you agree to receive.
  3. You need to make sure any Services are performed properly. If they are not and you do not timely report the inadequate performance of Services, we cannot help you.
  4. It's your responsibility to look after your account security and passwords. Activities that happen on your account are your responsibility.

About Thesaltysoldier's Responsibilities

We are committed to making it as easy as possible to schedule and buy services, and to work with you to resolve any disputes you may have as to the quality or timeliness of service that you receive. That said, we can't guarantee that you will always be 100% satisfied with our work and can only ensure that the Tasks you select through the Site are completed as we say they will be. Since the services will be completed on your property, obviously there are some risks associated with using our services. Thesaltysoldier isn't responsible for incidental damage or injury that might happen to you or others or to your property as a consequence of your use of our Site or Services.

IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE CONDITIONS OF USE, PLEASE EXIT THE SITE NOW AND DO NOT USE ANY OF THE SERVICES. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH THESE TERMS BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES.

Thesaltysoldier Conditions of Use

Thesaltysoldier.io is a website ("Site") made available by Thesaltysoldier, Inc. ("Thesaltysoldier", "we", "us", or "our") that acts as a communications platform to help you get "Tasks" completed by facilitating communication, scoping, pricing, scheduling, payment, and dispute resolution. By using the Site or requesting us to complete any Task, you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions ("Conditions of Use"). IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE CONDITIONS OF USE, PLEASE EXIT THE SITE NOW AND DO NOT USE ANY OF THE SERVICES. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH THESE TERMS BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES.

These Conditions of Use are effective as of March 9, 2018, but we may change these Conditions of Use from time to time. You agree that it is your responsibility to review these Conditions of Use each time you use the Site to arrange Services and to familiarize yourself with any modifications. If you use the Site or any Services after any modifications have been made to the Conditions of Use, such use constitutes your acknowledgement and agreement to abide and be bound by the revised Conditions of Use. You can review the most current version of the Conditions of Use at any time at: https://www.thesaltysoldier.com/welcome/term_condition.

Violation of any of the terms contained herein may result in the suspension or termination of your account without a right to any refund.

Description of Services

Our Site is a communications platform that helps facilitate the completion of property-based Tasks (the "Services") significantly reducing the leg work that would otherwise be required for you to arrange and pay for services directly with one or more contractors. Once you select a Task, our Site will locate one or more contractor(s) to perform the Task ("Contractor") based on the timeline you designate for completion of the Task and will arrange with the Contractors to complete the Task. Once the Task has been completed, you will have an opportunity to review the Contractor's work and to dispute the completion or quality of the Services. While Thesaltysoldier and the Site play an integral role in the completion of the Tasks, Thesaltysoldier does not physically complete any of the Tasks, but instead contracts with Contractors to complete this work. Contractors are independent contractors of Thesaltysoldier and not within our direct control. We reserve the sole right to either modify or discontinue the Site or any of the Services or features that might be available at any time with or without notice to you.

Account Information and Security

To create an account and register for Services, you must be 18 years or older, provide your full legal name, a valid email address for you, a valid phone number for you, and any other information requested to complete the signup process ("Registration Data"). The requirements for Registration Data may change from time to time, and you are required to keep your Registration Data accurate. By providing Registration Data you represent and warrant that you are not a competitor of Thesaltysoldier. Contractors and other entities will need portions of your Registration Data to respond to your request for Service. Consequently, you expressly consent to having limited portions of your Registration Data sent to Contractors whom Thesaltysoldier deems qualified to perform the requested Service. Disclosed portions of Registration Data include, but are not limited to, your name, contact phone number, email address, and physical address of the job location to the Contractor. By providing your information to us, or by submitting a service request, you are requesting, and you expressly consent to being contacted by us and by our Contractors via phone, fax, email, mail or other reasonable means, at any of your contact numbers or addresses, even if you are listed on any federal, state, provincial or other applicable "Do Not Call" list, in order that the Contractors may reasonably address matters pertaining to your service request. If at any time you would like to revoke our consent to contact you, please email Joe.Snuffy@thesaltysoldier.com with the subject line "PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME.". You will need to notify the Contractors separately as well.

The information we obtain through your use of this Site is subject to our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into these Conditions of Use.

Your use of the Site may be monitored by us, and the resultant information may be used by Thesaltysoldier for its internal business purposes or in accordance with the rules of any applicable regulatory or self-regulatory organization You are the sole authorized user of your account. You are solely and fully responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, including your account password. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not gain access to your password and account. You are also responsible for all activities that occur in connection with your account. If you suspect that any unauthorized party is using your account, you agree to notify us immediately. Also, you may not transfer or share your account with anyone, and we reserve the right to immediately terminate your account if you do transfer or share your account.

Payment for Services

When you visit our Site and select a Task, the Site will generate a bid for completion of the Task based on information you provide through the Site related to the Task. For these requested Services, you agree to pay us the applicable fees indicated to you through the Site. All fees for Services must be paid to Thesaltysoldier through the Site in advance of completion of a Task. Any funds received may be deposited to Thesaltysoldier’ general account and not be held in escrow or otherwise segregated until the Task is complete. Thesaltysoldier reserves the rights to use such funds for its ordinary course of business. If the information you input is inaccurate, we reserve the right to later increase the bid and the cost of the Services to reflect the actual conditions of a task. We reserve the right to increase a Service's fees or institute new charges upon reasonable notice to you. For complete pricing and details regarding various Tasks visit our task ordering pages.

Acceptance of Services

When a Task has been completed, you will be required to login to the Site to indicate completion of the Task. Once so indicated, your payment for the Task will be deemed earned by Thesaltysoldier and will not be subject to refund. Alternatively, if you do not dispute a Service within 24 hours of the service that has been performed as indicated by the Contractor, the Service will be deemed to have been completed to your satisfaction and your payment to Thesaltysoldier will be deemed earned in full. All payments for Services must be paid through the Site. Any payments made in cash directly to a Contractor are NOT subject to refunds. Any reimbursement expenses that are incurred by a Contractor in connection with the completion of any Service may, however, be paid in cash offline or through the Site.

Method of Payment

A valid credit card or debit card, or bank account must remain on file for recurring Service fees. After selecting a Task, Thesaltysoldier will charge your selected payment method for all costs, fees, or expenses associated with the selected Task. You hereby authorize us to charge your selected payment method for such amounts. Although all payments made to Thesaltysoldier are generally non-refundable, we, in our sole discretion and in exceptionable circumstances, per our Quality Assurance Policy, may nevertheless refund the cost of the Task or credit your account if the selected Task is unperformed or canceled before it can be performed, or is not performed to your satisfaction.

In addition to terminating or suspending your account, Thesaltysoldier reserves the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation pursuing civil, criminal, and injunctive redress.

All sections which by their nature should survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect subsequent to and notwithstanding the expiration or termination of this Agreement.

Contractors Are Not Thesaltysoldier Employees

Tasks you select to be completed through the Site are completed by third party Contractors assigned to your Task by the Site. You are not required to work with the Contractor assigned to you through the Site and may reject the Contractor and have the Site identify an alternative Contractor to complete the Task, provided however, that you reject the Contractor prior to the Contractor's timely commencement of your Task. We are not an employment service and none of the Contractors are employees of Thesaltysoldier. Additionally, no agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.

Contractor Screening

When Contractors register with the Site, they are required to input information and to make representations and warranties to Thesaltysoldier that they have all necessary licensing to complete the tasks with which the Contractor is associated on the Site; that the Contractor's state filings are current; that neither the Contractor nor any of its employees and agents has been convicted of a felony within the past three years, ever been convicted of a sex offense, and is not listed on any sex offender registry; that there are no civil judgments against Contractor; and that the Contractor (either alone or with Thesaltysoldier's general liability insurance) has adequate insurance coverage to help protect you. The contractor screening is currently a "self-reporting" system and Thesaltysoldier is not responsible for verifying the information provided by any Contractor; provided, however, Thesaltysoldier reserves the right to do so. Thesaltysoldier may require, but is not obligated to require, each Contractor to provide proof to support its representations and warranties and to update those materials at least annually to maintain an account on the Site. Thesaltysoldier does not guarantee or warrant the information any Contractor submits. Thesaltysoldier' services provided are currently in "Beta” testing and all services listed may not be currently available. During our "Beta" testing stage, for example, references on this Site or in any other documentation to verification of insurance shall mean that either the applicable Contractor has represented that he/she/it is insured or Thesaltysoldier believes its own general liability insurance will cover any anticipated claims.

Disputes

Thesaltysoldier is committed to resolving disputes arising out of or relating to the completion and quality of the Tasks. As such, Thesaltysoldier has adopted a Quality Assurance Policy that can be viewed here. You agree to resolve all disputes by according to Thesaltysoldier's Quality Assurance Policy and agree that the timelines and procedures set forth therein are fair and reasonable. For the avoidance of doubt, the Quality Assurance Policy is incorporated into these Conditions of Use by reference. You further agree that before taking any legal action against Thesaltysoldier or a Contractor, you must have first exhausted all of your remedies available to you under the Quality Assurance Policy. Any disputes should be submitted through your account on the Site. We expressly reserve the right to deny any submitted claim within our sole discretion for whatever reason.

Thesaltysoldier Release

Because Thesaltysoldier is not involved in the physical services rendered to complete a Task, you hereby release Thesaltysoldier, Inc. (and our officers, directors, agents, investors, subsidiaries, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, including without limitation, damage to person or property, arising out of or in any way connected with the physical performance of the Services to complete a Task. You also agree that you will not commence any action, lawsuit, or other proceeding against Thesaltysoldier (or any of its principals, officers, or employees) for disputes, claims, or actions arising out of or relating to physical performance of the Services rendered by a Contractor to complete a Task requested through the Site, or damages to any person or property resulting from a Contractor.

Arbitration Agreement And Jury Trial Waiver, Class Action Waiver, And Forum Selection Clause

Informal Resolution: All disputes between you and Thesaltysoldier will initially be addressed by a Thesaltysoldier customer service representative. If the representative is unable to resolve the dispute within five (5) business day(s) (or any other agreed upon timeframe), the dispute will be referred to the Thesaltysoldier customer service manager. The manager may, if both parties agree, meet to resolve the dispute, but if they are unable to resolve the dispute then (regardless of whether a meeting occurs) ten (10) business days after referral (or such other period as the parties may agree), the parties may pursue other remedies consistent with these Conditions of Use.

Binding Arbitration: Should any dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action (or part thereof) (collectively "dispute(s)") related in any way to these Conditions of Use, the Site, the Services, a Contractor, damages resulting from a Contractor, or the validity of these Conditions of Use remain between the parties after completion of the process described above, such dispute will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration in Indiana under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively "Rules and Procedures"), provided that to the extent any such rule conflicts with the provisions of this Section, this Section shall control.

By agreeing to these Conditions of Use, you are GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this agreement. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.

You and Thesaltysoldier must abide by the following rules: (a) for any claim that could otherwise be brought in small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions and, if the arbitrator deems it appropriate, a telephonic hearing; (b) if the claim exceeds what can be recovered in a small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions or a telephonic hearing, unless the arbitrator deems a face-to-face hearing is appropriate, in which case one should be held at a location agreed to by you and Thesaltysoldier, and if the parties cannot agree on a location for the hearing, the arbitrator will determine a location for the proceedings which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances; (c) the arbitrator's ruling is binding and not merely advisory; (d) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR Thesaltysoldier MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES' INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (e) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, (f) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Thesaltysoldier will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (g)Thesaltysoldier also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (h) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (i) a decision by the arbitrator (including any finding of fact and/or conclusion of law) against either you or Thesaltysoldier shall be confidential unless otherwise required to be disclosed by law or by any administrative body and may not be collaterally used against either of them in existing or subsequent litigation or arbitration involving any other person/Thesaltysoldier customer; and (j) each side pays its own attorneys' fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees' and litigation expenses.

Claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party's patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Allen County, Indiana. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in Allen County, Indiana in order to maintain the status quo pending the arbitrator's ruling, and hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Allen County, Indiana for such purpose. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate.

With the exception of subparts (d) and (e) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (d) or (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Thesaltysoldier shall be entitled to arbitration. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, or in the event AAA refuses to arbitrate the dispute, all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action between Thesaltysoldier and you shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Allen County, Indiana.

THE PARTIES HAVE KNOWINGLY CHOSEN ARBITRATION AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO PROCEEDINGS IN COURT AND THEY SPECIFICALLY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO PROCEED BY ANY MEANS BEFORE A COURT OTHERWISE HAVING JURISDICTION OF ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THEM, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OR AS PROVIDED ABOVE.

You acknowledge that Thesaltysoldier may be irreparably damaged if these Conditions of Use are not specifically enforced, and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of these Conditions of Use by you, Thesaltysoldier shall be entitled, in addition to all rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post any bond or other security, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of these Conditions of Use.
