Welcome to Tapwage! Please read these terms of service (“Agreement”) carefully because it is an agreement between you (“you”) and Tapwage, Inc. (“Tapwage”, “we”, “us” or “our”), and governs your access to and use of Tapwage’s platform including the TapRecruit product suite, our website located at https://tapwage.com/ and all its subdomains including https://recruit.tapwage.com (the “Site”) and related services (collectively, the “Services”).
If you are accessing and using the Services by or on behalf of a company or other organization, the individual accepting this Agreement represents and warrants that he or she has the authority to bind that company or other organization to this Agreement, and “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other organization. Use of and access to the Services is conditioned upon compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. By checking the box next to ‘I agree to the Tapwage Terms of Service’, you indicate that you understand and agree to be bound by these terms of service.
We may modify this Agreement (including any policies we reference), in our sole discretion and at any time, by posting a revised version on the Site or by otherwise notifying you in accordance with Section 10.6.
