TERMS OF SERVICE
1. Overview. Certain services provided by Prosper Go Work, Inc. or its current or future affiliates (together, “Prosper Gowork”, “we” or “us”) may require that a user (“User” or “you”) register for and maintain a Prosper Gowork account (“Account”) through the website www.prospergowork.com, www.prospercowork.com, www.prosperworkspace.com and prosper.cobot.me, or any future affiliated website of Prosper Gowork (the “Website”) to use or access such services. These service Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) describe your rights and obligations in connection with your use of the services. Please read these Terms carefully, as they affect your legal rights. Among other things, these Terms include your agreement that except for certain types of disputes described in the “Governing Law; Arbitration and Class Action Waiver” section below, you agree that, to the maximum extent allowed by applicable law, disputes between you and us will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, and you waive your right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration. For additional information, please see the section entitled “Governing Law; Arbitration and Class Action Waiver.” If you have any questions about these Terms, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Member Terms of Service.” By accessing or using the services in any way, you are agreeing to abide by and be bound by these Terms. From time to time, we may modify or update these Terms in accordance with Section entitled “How we might change the services or these Terms.” If you use the services after any such change, you accept these Terms as modified. For clarity, these Terms apply to your use of the services, the Website, our physical locations, and payment of your membership (collectively, the “services”).
2. Who we are. Who we are for purposes of these Terms is Prosper Go Work, Inc. or one or more of its current or future affiliates.
4. Who you are. References to “you,” “your” and similar words in these Terms refer to the individual registering or registered by a primary account holder for an Account on the Website and therefore agreeing to be bound by these Terms. A company or entity member is also responsible for the compliance of each of its individual members (e.g. its employees, contractors, and other service providers).
5. How we might change the services or these Terms. The availability of the services you access or use through the Website or Prosper Gowork locations are subject to change from time to time in our sole discretion, and we may change, suspend, or discontinue all or part of the services at any time in our sole discretion. From time to time, we may also make modifications, deletions or additions to these Terms. We may also impose limits on or restrict your access to the services, including any of the Prosper Gowork locations, without notice or liability. We will provide you with notice of changes to these Terms or to the services we provide that apply to you by emailing the last email address provided by you in your profile or by posting a notice on the Website or the applicable Prosper Gowork location. Most changes will be effective immediately upon notice. It is also your responsibility to check these Terms periodically for changes. If you don’t agree to the changes, you may terminate your Account, but please note that you may not be able to access any services without an Account, and there are no refunds for early cancellation of the services. Your continued use of the services following notification of any changes to these Terms constitutes acceptance of those changes, which will apply to your continued use of the services going forward. Your use of the services is subject to the Terms in effect at the time of such use.

You shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542 or any other similar law of any jurisdiction, which says in substance: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

38. Exclusions. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the exclusions and limitations above may not apply to you. In such event, such exclusions and limitations shall apply to the maximum extent allowed under applicable law.
31. You agree to hold us harmless. To the extent permitted by law, you will indemnify and hold harmless the Prosper Gowork Parties from and against any and all Claims resulting from any breach of these Terms by you or your employees or guests, or your or their agents or invitees or any of your or their actions or omissions, and Prosper Gowork will have sole control over the defense of any such Claims. You shall not make any settlement that requires a material act or admission by any of the Prosper Gowork Parties, imposes any obligation upon any of the Prosper Gowork Parties or does not contain a full and unconditional release of the Prosper Gowork Parties, without our written consent. None of the Prosper Gowork Parties shall be liable for any settlement made without its prior written consent.
