Welcome to TikkTalk!
Thanks for your interest in our website (the «Site») and our online marketplace with audio/video/in-person meeting booking services (the «Service»)!
By using our Services, you agree to these terms (the «Terms») and the TikkTalk Partner Program Policies (the «Partner Program Policies») (collectively, the «Agreement»). If ever in conflict, to the extent of such conflict, the Terms will take precedence over any other terms of the Agreement. Please read the Agreement carefully.
As used in the Agreement, «you» or «Account holder» means the individual or entity using the Services (and/or any individual, entity or successor entity, agency or network acting on your behalf), «we,» «us» or «TikkTalk» means TikkTalk AS, and the «parties» means you and TikkTalk.
Access to the Services; TikkTalk Accounts
Your use of the Services is subject to your creation and our approval of a TikkTalk account (an «Account»). We have the right to refuse or limit your access to the Services. By creating an account to use the Services, if you are an individual, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age. You may have one Account for hiring Interpreters (“Business”), and another Account for providing your interpretation services to other Account holders (“Interpreter”). TikkTalk reserves the right to merge hiring and provisioning features and allow them in the same Account.
Using our Services
You may use our Services only as permitted by this Agreement and any applicable laws. Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide.
You may discontinue your use of any Service at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org («Customer Support»), as applicable to your account.
Changes to our Services; Changes to the Agreement
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features of the Services at any time, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.
We may modify the Agreement at any time. We’ll post any modifications to the TikkTalk Terms on this page and any modifications to the TikkTalk Partner Program Policies or the TikkTalk Branding Guidelines on their respective pages. Changes will not apply retroactively and generally will become effective 14 days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you don’t agree to any modified terms in the Agreement, you’ll have to stop using the affected Services.
You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless TikkTalk, our Affiliates, and our respective directors, officers, employees, representatives, and agents (each an «Indemnified Party») from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and all related costs and expenses) arising from or relating to any claim, suit, proceeding, demand, or action brought by you or a third party or other Account holder against an Indemnified Party relating to: (a) use of the Site and the Services by you or your agents, including any payment obligations incurred through use of the Services; (b) any Interpretation Assignment entered into by you or your agents, including, but not limited to, the classification of an Account holder as an independent contractor; the classification of TikkTalk as an employer or joint employer of the Account holder; any employment-related claims, such as those relating to employment termination, employment discrimination, harassment, or retaliation; and any claims for unpaid wages or other compensation, overtime pay, sick leave, holiday or vacation pay, retirement benefits, worker’s compensation benefits, unemployment benefits, or any other employee benefits; (c) failure to comply with the Terms by you or your agents; (d) failure to comply with applicable law by you or your agents; (e) negligence, wilful misconduct, or fraud by you or your agents; and (f) defamation, libel, violation of privacy rights, unfair competition, or infringement of Intellectual Property Rights or allegations thereof to the extent caused by you or your agents.
