Last updated: 13 March 2023
These Terms of Service (these “Terms”) apply to the services (the “Service”) provided by Ehalah FZ-LLC, (“Intrro”, “our,” or “we”) via https://www.Intrro.com (the “Site”) and form a legally binding contract between Intrro and you (the “Customer” or “you”).
BY REGISTERING TO USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES AND CHECKING THE BOX TO AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICES OR OTHERWISE USING OR ACCESSING THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT: (A) YOU HAVE READ THESE TERMS; (B) YOU UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THESE TERMS; AND (C) YOU AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS.
Intrro reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms (or any policy or guideline of Intrro) at any time and in its sole discretion. If Intrro makes changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending you a notification, by providing notice through the Services, and/or by updating the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms and posting the revised Terms to our Services. Your continued use of any of the Services will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. Therefore, you should review these Terms whenever you access the Services to make sure that you understand the terms and conditions that will apply to your use of the Services.
Any master subscription agreement entered into between you and Intrro shall, together with these Terms which are incorporated by reference, constitute a single contract between you and Intrro (the “Agreement”).
1. Access to the Services and Restrictions
- Access to the Services. Subject to the terms hereof, Intrro hereby grants to you and your affiliates a worldwide, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-assignable (except as set forth in Section 11.4) right to access and use the Services.
- Restrictions. Intrro retains world-wide ownership of the Services and all intellectual property, whether registered or unregistered, therein. Customer agrees that it obtains no intellectual property rights to the Services under this agreement except for the limited rights set forth in Section 1.1. In addition, Customer will not, and will not authorize any third party to: (i) modify, change, alter, create derivative works of, decipher, decompile, disassemble, reconstruct, translate reverse engineer or attempt to discover any source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms of the Services, or (ii) sell, rent, provide, lease, license or sublicense, disclose, distribute, transfer, use for time-sharing or services bureau purposes, or otherwise use or allow others to use, in each case, for the direct benefit of any third party (other than its affiliates), the Services, or (iii) remove from any of the Services any language or designation indicating the confidential nature thereof or the proprietary rights of Intrro. In addition, you will not export, re-export or permit any third party to export or re-export, directly or indirectly, the Services where such export or re-export is prohibited by applicable law without appropriate licenses and clearances.
2. Fees and Payment
- The Customer shall pay Intrro the fees as set out in Intrro’s payment gateway (whether Stripe or another gateway) (“Fees”). Fees due are payable within thirty (30) days from the Customer’s receipt of an invoice from Intrro. All invoices shall be presumed correct if not disputed by the Customer prior to the due date.
- For Customers of unlimited-hire Services, fees for the initial term and each renewal term are invoiced in advance. For Customers of per-hire Services, fees shall be invoiced following each hire or at the end of Intrro’s designated billing cycle, at Intrro’s discretion.
- Intrro reserves the right to require that Customers of per-hire Services provide a reasonable, refundable deposit to cover anticipated fees for the billing cycle in progress.
- With respect to per-hire Services, fees shall be earned by Intrro upon execution of a binding contract of employment (or equivalent agreement for contractors) between the Customer and the hire introduced by Intrro. For the purposes of this Agreement, “introduced” shall mean that the hire was presented by Intrro to the Customer in an individually-identifiable manner and that the hire was not engaged in active hiring discussions with the Customer at the time of such presentation. The Customer shall provide notice to Intrro within (10) ten business days of presentation by Intrro of any hire that does not qualify as introduced pursuant to the foregoing definition, and in any event the burden of proof shall be on the Customer to demonstrate that any hire does not so qualify.
- All Fees shall be paid in the currency invoiced. The Customer will pay any applicable sales, use, value added, surtax, personal property tax, as well as duties, fees and other governmental assessments or charges arising out of the Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein, excluding taxes based on Intrro’s income, provided that any such applicable taxes or fees are itemized on each applicable invoice. With respect to any payment, the Customer shall ensure that the net amount actually received by Intrro corresponds to the amount invoiced by Intrro and due by the Customer, and in this context any bank wiring fees, credit card fees, or similar costs shall be the responsibility of the Customer.
- Fees are due by the Customer in consideration exclusively for the provision of Services by Intrro, and Intrro provides no warranties or undertakings of any kind with respect to any hire made by a Customer, whether in relation to qualifications, suitability, longevity, or any other criterion in connection with a hire. Intrro shall be under no obligation to provide any refunds, rebates or credit to any Customer, and doing so shall be entirely at Intrro’s absolute discretion.
3. Term and Termination
- Term. The Agreement starts on the Effective Date and remains in effect for the duration initially agreed, or for a period of twelve (12) months if no duration has been specified (“Term”). At the expiry of the Term (and any subsequent Term), the Agreement shall be renewed automatically for a successive Term of equal duration, unless either Intrro or the Customer provide a written notice of non-renewal to the other party no later than thirty (30) calendar days prior to the scheduled renewal date. Upon any such renewal, Intrro will invoice Customer or, if Customer has placed a credit card on file with Intrro, Intrro may bill the applicable fees to such credit card (which Customer expressly authorizes Intrro to do).
- Conversion from Per-Hire Agreement. For any Customer exercising its right to convert from a contract for per-hire Services to a contract for unlimited-hire Services, the Agreement shall continue through to the end of the original Term, on the basis of the new pricing and unlimited-hire model. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, all fees accrued prior to the date of conversion shall continue to be due and payable, and fees from the date of conversion shall be applied on a pro-rated time basis.
- Termination for Breach. Either party may terminate the Agreement with immediate effect in the event of a material breach by the other party that remains uncured for more than thirty (30) calendar days following delivery of a notice of breach, or in the event of a material breach by the other party that is not capable of being cured.
- Consequences of Termination. Upon any expiration or termination of the Agreement, (i) all subscriptions and rights to access the Services will terminate, and (ii) Customer shall immediately cease all use of the Services. In the event of a material breach of the Agreement, termination is not an exclusive remedy and all other remedies will be available whether or not termination occurs.
- Survival. The following provisions will survive any expiration or termination of the Agreement: Sections 1.2, 6, 7 through 10, and any accrued and outstanding payment obligations.
In the event of any material breach by the Customer, or any failure to pay any sums when due, Intrro shall have the right to suspend all or part of the Services to the Customer until such time as the breach has been cured to Intrro’s satisfaction, and Intrro shall furthermore have the right to condition reinstatement of Services to payment of a reinstatement fee determined by Intrro. Such suspension right shall be without prejudice to Intrro’s right to terminate the Agreement pursuant to Section 3.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Intrro and Intrro’s affiliates, business partners, officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from any loss, liability, claim, action, suit, demand, damage, or expense (including reasonable legal fees, costs of investigation and court costs) asserted by any third party relating in any way to, or in respect of, your use of the Services, any third party applications, software, information, content, and/or materials you post or share on or through the Services, or breach of the Agreement, or breach of any of the undertakings, warranties and/or representations contained in Section 6 below.

8. Limitation of Liability
In no event shall Intrro be liable for any claim for any indirect, willful, punitive, incidental, exemplary, special or consequential damages, for loss of business profits, or damages for loss of business of the Customer or any third party arising out of the Agreement, or loss or inaccuracy of data of any kind, whether based on contract, tort or any other legal theory, even if Intrro has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall Intrro be liable to the Customer with respect to the subject matter hereof under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for any amounts in excess of the fees paid hereunder during the twelve (12) month period prior to the cause of action. The parties agree that this Section 7 represents a reasonable allocation of risk and that Intrro would not proceed in the absence of such allocation.
Intrro makes no representations, and hereby expressly disclaims all warranties, express or implied, regarding the Services or any other services or products or any portion thereof, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose and implied warranties arising from course of dealing or course of performance.
10. Confidential Information
- Definition. Either party (the “Disclosing Party”) may disclose or make available (either directly or through an affiliate) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”), whether orally or in physical form, confidential or proprietary information concerning the Disclosing Party and/or its business, products, services, employees, marketing, promotional or technical information in connection with the Agreement, or any information that a Receiving Party knows or reasonably should know is considered confidential or proprietary by the Disclosing Party, or that would be considered confidential or proprietary the Receiving Party, which shall include the terms and conditions of the Agreement (collectively, the “Confidential Information”). For purposes hereof, Confidential Information will not include information that: (a) was previously known to Receiving Party without an obligation of confidentiality; (b) was acquired by Receiving Party from a third party who was not, to the Receiving Party’s knowledge, under an obligation to not disclose such information; (c) is or becomes publicly available through no fault of Receiving Party; or (d) Disclosing Party gave written permission to Receiving Party for disclosure, but only with respect to such permitted disclosure.

The Receiving Party is responsible for any breach of the confidentiality provisions of the Agreement by its employees or agents. In the event the Receiving Party receives a subpoena or other validly issued administrative or judicial process demanding Confidential Information, the Receiving Party will give the Disclosing Party prompt written notice of any disclosure of such Confidential Information, including the Agreement terms that, in the opinion of its counsel, appears to be required by law, so that the Disclosing Party may assert any defenses to disclosure that may be available. Receiving Party shall retain material containing Confidential Information only so long as necessary to perform the Services or carry out obligations under the Agreement. Upon request by the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party will return all copies of any Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party, or destroy any Confidential Information in its possession.

No license under any trade secrets, copyrights, know-how, or other rights is granted under the Agreement, or by any disclosure of Confidential Information under the Agreement.
