Thank you for using Matchboard. Following is an overview of how our matching service works and the Terms and Conditions of Use.
Matchboard’s services. Matchboard’s matching service matches you with suppliers of products or services that you are looking to purchase. We will attempt to match you with multiple suppliers who will compete for your business. We strive to enlist the highest quality suppliers but cannot guarantee suppliers’ credentials.
Your Use of Service. Matchboard’s sole role is to connect you with the best-fit suppliers matching your requirements. You decide whether to purchase from any of these suppliers. By lodging a questionnaire on our site, you agree that Matchboard and our suppliers may contact you. You should only use the matching service if you have legitimate purchasing needs, whether in the short or longer term.
Information you provide to us. You will be asked to provide information regarding your requirements and contact information to allow suppliers to respond to you directly. The information you provide us must be complete and accurate.
Communications. Matchboard may, from time to time, send you communications related to your request. You may opt out of these communications at any time.
Matchboard Terms and Conditions
Updated: September 1, 2012
Terms and Conditions
Access to and use of the Matchboard site is provided subject to the following terms and conditions. Please read these terms and conditions carefully as your use of the site and Matchboard’s services constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions, do not use the site or services. Matchboard may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise these terms and conditions at any time by updating this web page. To the extent permitted by law, you are bound by any such modification or revision and should visit this page periodically to review the terms.
Matchboard provides a service that allows buyers to submit requests to be matched with suppliers who can meet their needs. We strive to make your experience a positive one.
It should be noted that Matchboard may not always be able to match your requirements with suppliers. While we seek to enlist only the highest quality suppliers, we do not guarantee the quality or the credentials of the suppliers who receive and respond to you. As Matchboard is a conduit for matching buyers with suppliers, we are not responsible for any transaction that may occur between you and/or your company and a Matchboard participating supplier. Matchboard does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of the information provided or the products and services sold. You should exercise as much caution as you would typically exercise with any purchase of products or services.
Should you have a dispute with any supplier, you must address such dispute with the supplier directly. You hereby agree to release Matchboard (and our employees and agents) from any and all damages or claims (including consequential and incidental damages) arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes and your transactions with suppliers.
2. YOUR USE OF MATCHBOARD SERVICES
Matchboard enables you to initiate transactions for the purchase of products or services. However, Matchboard is not the supplier of such products or services, nor is it a third party to any transactions involving such products or services.
You agree that by completing a questionnaire on our site, you are entering into an agreement with Matchboard and a business relationship with Matchboard’s suppliers and thus agree to be contacted by Matchboard and its suppliers. You acknowledge that these suppliers can contact you regarding your request and that you are expressly consenting to such contact by them, or Matchboard if necessary, to fulfill such request via phone, email, mail or other reasonable means, at any of your contact numbers or addresses.
It is agreed that your use of Matchboard services is for sourcing purposes and not for any other purpose including advertising or competitive intelligence. You acknowledge that Matchboard screens your questionnaire and has the right (but not the obligation) in our sole discretion to deny any request that is in violation of these terms and conditions.
If it is determined or suspected by Matchboard in its sole discretion that you are misusing or attempting to misuse or circumvent the Matchboard services or system, or are using or attempting to use it for any inappropriate purposes, including but not limited to activities such as hacking, fraud, advertising, or spamming, Matchboard reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately terminate your access without notice and to commence legal actions or proceedings to seek remedies and/or damages, including but not limited to lost revenue, repairs, legal fees, costs and expenses, and to seek injunctions or other equitable remedies.
While there is no cost for buyers to use Matchboard’s service, suppliers may pay Matchboard a success fee pertaining to introduction of your business to one or more suppliers.
