Terms & Conditions


These PeerAssist terms and conditions (“Agreement”) govern the access to and use of PeerAssist’s Services (as defined in Section 1) and is a legally binding contract by and between PeerAssist, a California liability company (“PeerAssist”), and the entity identified within the Statement of Work (as defined in Section 1) as the party to receive Services via the Statement of Work from PeerAssist (“Customer”). By using PeerAssist’s Services, Customer agrees to be bound by and accepts this Agreement. This Agreement is subject to change without prior written notice at any time, at PeerAssist’s sole discretion.

1. Services. 

1.1 Services. PeerAssist will provide Customer with the services (“Services”) as described in the statement of work, purchase order, proposal, quote, or other contractual agreement that PeerAssist provides to Customer (“Statement(s) of Work”) and is incorporated hereto by reference. PeerAssist will provide the Services to Customer in a professional manner, using the degree of care and skill ordinarily exercised by and consistent with the standards of the profession and practice in the field of custom software and integrated services or software subscription services. If a conflict occurs between this Agreement and the Statement of Work, the Statement of Work takes precedence over this Agreement. PeerAssist will provide the Services to Customer during the Term (as defined in Section 2). PeerAssist will only provide technical software support services as part of the Services if specified in the Statement of Work.

The Services provided to Customer will be either (1) custom software and integrated services or (2) subscription services. The custom software and integrated services provided will be either (A) “Custom On-Premise”, where the Customer hosts the Services itself and does not receive any technical software support services, or (B) “Cloud Hosted Web Solutions”, where PeerAssist provides hosting for the Services and offers technical software support services. A Customer who purchases Custom On-Premise will only receive technical software support services as part of the Services if explicitly stated on the Statement of Work. If the Statement of Work does not state that Customer has purchased technical software support services as part of the Services, Customer may purchase technical software support services on an “as-needed” basis as provided in a separate written agreement between the parties.

1.2 Customer License. PeerAssist provides the custom software and all other deliverables under the Services as a license only, which ends immediately upon termination of this Agreement. Subject to Customer’s compliance with this Agreement, PeerAssist hereby grants Customer the non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access, download, install, and use the Services ordered by Customer, for Customer’s own internal business purposes. Customer’s use of the Services is limited to the Customer’s employees. Customer must obtain prior written approval from PeerAssist before allowing Customer’s consultant, contractor, subcontractor, vendor, or any other third party to use the Services.

1.3 Manner of use. The Customer may not, by either authorized or unauthorized access: (1) reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Services; (2) take any action that attempts to circumvent the Services or that would limit Customer’s use of the Services; (3) use the Services as prohibited by law or this Agreement; or (4) use the Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Services or interrupts any other party’s use of the Services.

1.4 Software Updates. PeerAssist may make software updates or changes to the Services from time to time. PeerAssist will only provide software updates to Customer if specified in the Statement of Work.

1.5 Availability. PeerAssist will use reasonable commercial efforts to make the Services available without interruption during the Term; yet, Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Services are subject to scheduled maintenance and may not be available at all times.

2. Term 
Unless otherwise specified, the Services begin on the date specified in the Statement of Work or at PeerAssist’s commencement of Services, whichever occurs first. The Services will be provided for the duration as stated in the Statement of Work (“Term”). If the Statement of Work does not state the duration of the Term, the Term begins upon Customer’s use of the Services and continues for a twelve-month period. The Term will automatically renew as stated in the Statement of Work. If the Statement of Work does not specify term renewal terms, the Term then automatically renews on an annual basis for a twelve-month period, unless and until Customer or PeerAssist terminates the Services.

3. Payment.

3.1 General. PeerAssist will charge Customer, and Customer must pay PeerAssist all fees, charges, taxes, and other amounts in connection with the Services (“Fees”) in U.S. dollars and in accordance with this section. PeerAssist will charge Customer all Fees due and payable by Customer for the Services as they are incurred or as provided in the Statement of Work. All Fees for initial billing on a new contract are due upon receipt to begin service. Invoices thereafter for an established account are due within thirty (30) calendar days of the invoice date, unless specified as otherwise on the Statement of Work.

3.2 Billing. Unless otherwise provided in the Statement of Work, all amounts due and payable for the Services are to be made via the payment method Customer provides PeerAssist (“Payment Method”). Customer authorizes PeerAssist to charge its Payment Method for all Fees. The Fees may be charged to the Payment Method at any time in one or more charges. In the event PeerAssist is unable to collect payment with a Payment Method that Customer provides, Customer agrees to promptly provide another Payment Method within three (3) business days of PeerAssist’s written notification to Customer. Customer recognizes that the amounts charged to its Payment Method may vary due to the Services provided during that particular billing cycle, changes to the scope of the Services provided, or changes to the Services themselves. If PeerAssist chooses to provide Services to Customer on credit, that provision is subject to PeerAssist’s review and approval of Customer’s credit. PeerAssist, at its sole discretion, may choose to discontinue or limit Customer’s credit at any time.

3.3 Late Charges. If the Customer does not pay an invoice within thirty (30) calendar days of the invoice date, the Customer will be subject to a late payment charge of 1.5% per month or at the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, whichever is less. In the event of collection enforcement, the Customer will be liable for any costs associated with such collection, including, but not limited to, legal costs, reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and collection agency fees.

3.4 Suspension of Services. If the Customer does not pay an invoice within thirty (30) calendar days of the invoice date, PeerAssist, at its sole discretion, retains the right to suspend Services until it receives payment in full. A suspension under Section 3.4 does not constitute a termination of this Agreement or relieve Customer of obligations or liabilities under this Agreement.

3.5 Taxes. Customer is responsible for paying all taxes, if any, related to the Services. PeerAssist may charge Customer for all taxes that PeerAssist is permitted to pass on to its customers under applicable law, and Customer must pay all taxes so charged.

If Customer wishes to dispute a charge, Customer must provide notice via email to their PeerAssist representative within thirty (30) calendar days of the invoice date, detailing the amount and the basis of the dispute. Within thirty (30) calendar days from the notice, there must be a good-faith attempt to resolve the dispute. If the Customer does not dispute a charge within that thirty (30) calendar day timeframe, the Customer will be deemed to have irrevocably waived its Customer’s right to dispute the charge.

3.7 Refund Policy.  All Fees incurred by Customer under this Agreement are non-refundable and non-creditable.

3.8 Reactivation Fee. PeerAssist may charge Customer a fee to reactivate Customer’s account following Customer’s termination of Services or PeerAssist’s termination or suspension of Services due to Customer’s breach.

PeerAssist will pay the Customer within thirty (30) calendar days after PeerAssist receives its first payment from the Successful Referral.

3.11 Additional Fees. If stated in the Statement of Work or invoice, PeerAssist and the Customer agree that there will be an additional charge, in addition to the Price, of 0.25% of the Customer’s monthly order volume that is processed using the Services (“Additional Fees”). The Additional Fees will appear as a separate line item on the Customer’s invoice. The Customer must pay the Additional Fees within thirty (30) calendar days of each invoice date. 

3.12 Early Termination Charge.  The Customer may cancel the Services at any time by giving a 90-day written notice to accounts@peerassist.com, but will not be entitled to any refunds. Upon cancellation, Customer will be liable for an “Early Termination Charge.” This “Early Termination Charge” will equal the remainder of the Fees that would have otherwise been made for the duration of the Term had the customer not canceled the Services, plus any Additional Fees and charges, if applicable. The Early Termination Charge must be payable in one lump sum within thirty (30) calendar days of termination. No waiver of the Early Termination Charge will be effective unless set forth in a written agreement signed by both PeerAssist and Customer.
