Terms of Service

Thank you for using Solicitbid products and services (Services). By using our Services, you agree to these Terms of Service (Terms) and our Privacy Policy. It is important you carefully read and understand this document prior to participating in our Services.

Acceptance of Terms

This webpage contains the Terms governing your access to and use of SolicitBid.com (the “Website” or “Site”). If you do not accept these Terms in their entirety or you do not meet or comply with our provisions, you may not use the Website.

When using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these Terms. SolicitBid assumes the User is authorized to represent their business (Company) when using our Services. If you are not authorized to operate on your Company’s behalf, or are simply not sure, please discuss these Terms with your management prior to using our Services.

Users, and their Company, will hold harmless and indemnify SolicitBid and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these Terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.

SolicitBid may make changes to these Terms periodically. Updated Terms will typically be posted to the Site one (1) week prior to being made effective. Revisions pertaining to new Services, legal matters, or conflicting Terms may be implemented immediately following being posted to the Site.

Using Our Services

Our Services are intended for use by authorized public and private companies (Company) and their employees (Users). SolicitBid was developed specifically to facilitate the commercial construction bidding process between project Owners, Professional Service providers (e.g. Engineering, Architecture, or Construction Management firms), Contractors, Suppliers and Plan and Print Centers. SolicitBid reserves the right to remove, without explanation, any Content believed to be outside our scope of Services. It is understood by both parties that SolicitBid can terminate any User (or Company), at our sole discretion, at anytime. Likewise, Users can terminate their use of our Services at anytime.

The Services (tools and features) provided by SolicitBid are to be used at your own risk and discretion. For example, we do not claim to know or understand your local rules or laws governing the bid solicitation process. It is your responsibility to review all local laws and regulations prior to using our Services.

SolicitBid may add, modify, or delete Services at anytime. We also reserve the right to make changes to our Site at anytime and without notice. For example, we may periodically change the structure, layout, appearance, or feel of the Site. When deleting a Service SolicitBid will, to the extent possible, allow sufficient time for you to remove your content from that Service.

SolicitBid provides both fee based and free Services to registered Users. We reserve the right to change our pricing structure at anytime and without notice, to include limiting or suspending free Services. Price modifications will only be effective on products or Services purchased after the date the changes were posted to the Site.

Registration

SolicitBid collects information from you to be used during the registration process and to provide general contact information to other registered Users. For specific information regarding the information we collect and how we use it, please see our Privacy Policy. As a condition to use our Services, you are obligated to keep your (profile) information current and correct. Not updating your User and Company information when a change occurs is a violation of these Terms.

Our Site is intended for business use only. For this reason, we require certain information about the Company for which you are employed. You must provide this information and attest that it is true and correct, to the best of your knowledge, to complete the registration process. Providing fraudulent or falsified information is a violation of these Terms and punishable by law.

As part of the registration process, each user will provide an email address and select a password to be used for their personal login. You shall notify SolicitBid of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your Account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password. You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity may be grounds for termination of your Account, at SolicitBid’s sole discretion, and you may be reported to appropriate law-enforcement agencies.

Our Services allow you to add (up to 9) other employees from your Company to participate (creating a “Workgroup”). These Terms apply to all Users as a condition for using our Services. Content on the Site may be confidential in nature. Therefore it is at your own risk, responsibility, and discretion to add or remove Users from your Workgroup. You are required to review your Workgroup frequently to confirm only authorized Users have access to your Company’s content. Users who are no longer employed or authorized by the Company are to be removed (deleted) immediately.
