Services

This Contract applies to https://topdigital.agency, TDA-related sites, communications and other services that state that they are offered under this Contract (“Services”), including the offsite collection of data for those Services, such as our ads and plugins. Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Contract applies to both Members and Visitors. Users of our Premium Membership Services (the “Premium Membership Services”) also agree to abide by our Premium Membership Terms and Conditions.

TDA

You are entering into this Contract with Top Digital Agency Limited, a company incorporated under the laws of Ireland with company number 642562 and whose registered office is at Ground Floor, 71 Lower Baggot Street, Dublin, D02 P593 and its subsidiary Top digital d.o.o., Vladimira Nazora 23, Zabok, Croatia (TDA Croatia), collectively referred hereto as “TDA” “we” or “us”.

This Contract applies to Members and Visitors.

“Members” refers to Digital Service Providers and Clients that have provided data to TDA in order to use the Services. Authorized Members are the employees of Member Digital Service Providers or Clients that are authorized by the relevant authority within such Member to use the site on behalf of that Member.

“Visitors” refers to all users of the platform that are not members.

“You” refers to all Members and Visitors. In order to use this site, you must be an Eligible User as discussed in paragraph 2.1 of this User Agreement.

As a Visitor or Member of the TDA Services, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to this Privacy Policy (which includes our Cookie Policy and other documents referenced in our Privacy Policy) and updates.

There are a number of different Membership packages on Top Digital Agency. In general, you can register for (i) a client account (“Client Account”) in order to search for a Digital Service Provider or to create a project on TDA platform or (ii) a Digital Service Provider account (“Digital Service Provider Account”) in order to showcase the work that you do and pitch for business. There are multiple levels of account within Client Accounts and Digital Service Provider Accounts. 

Purpose of TDA

TDA is a marketplace where Clients and Digital Service Providers can identify each other and advertise and sell services online. Subject to this User Agreement TDA offers the TDA Services to you. TDA makes the site and Services available to enable Digital Service Providers and Clients to find each other. On the TDA site Digital Service Providers can create Service Packages, each with a set cost, timeline, and package of deliverables. Clients who need work completed, can post a project on our platform. Through the Site and Site Services, Digital Service Providers may be notified of Clients that may be seeking the services they offer, and Clients may be notified of Digital Service Providers that may offer the services they seek. Digital Service Providers registered on our platform can then pitch for the projects if they meet the minimum requirements to do so.

TDA does not select projects for Digital Service Providers or, select Digital Service Providers for Clients. You are responsible for evaluating and determining the suitability of any project, client, digital service provider, information or connection made on TDA.

Service Contract

If you decide to enter into a Service Contract or any type of  agreement that you find appropriate with another Member or User of TDA, TDA is not a party to that agreement.  You may not, by the agreement with another Member or of TDA, alter the rights or responsibilities of this User Agreement, or agree to any terms that would violate any of the terms of this User Agreement.

You acknowledge and agree that Users have discretion whether to contract with each other and will negotiate and determine the specific terms of their Service Contracts with each other. 

1.2 Members and Visitors

When you register and join the TDA Services or become a registered user, you become a Member. If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features as a “Visitor.” 

1.3 Change

We may make changes to this Contract.

We may modify this Contract, our Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy from time to time. If we make material changes to it, we will provide you notice through our Services, or by other means, to provide you the opportunity to review the changes before they become effective. We agree that changes cannot be retroactive. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. Your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to these terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms.

6. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution

In the unlikely event we end up in a legal dispute, TDA and you agree to resolve it in Irish courts using Irish law.

You and TDA agree that the laws of Ireland shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to this Contract and/or the Services. 

Dispute resolution between You and TDA and our Affiliates

Before serving a Claim, you and TDA agree to first notify each other of the Claim. You agree to notify TDA of the Claim at email to [email protected], and TDA agrees to provide to you a notice at the email address you provided while registering on the Site (in each case, a “Notice”). 

You and TDA then will seek informal voluntary resolution of the Claim. Any Notice must include your account information, a brief description of the Claim, and contact information, so that you or TDA, as applicable, may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim. Both you and TDA will have 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the other party’s Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.

In the event we are unable to resolve a Claim within 60 days of the receipt of the applicable Notice, you, TDA, and our Affiliates agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of Ireland to settle any dispute which may arise out of or in connection with this Agreement or the Services.

Dispute resolution between you and another Member

In the event of a dispute arising between you and another Member of the Services, you agree to put in reasonable effort to resolve all disputes amicably. 

TDA may provide assistance to the parties included by providing information about the projects, giving insight into the messages parties have exchanged through the TDA platform or documentation relating to the subject matter of the dispute if possible.

You agree to inform TDA of any disputes between you and another Member of the Services as soon as they arise. The moment TDA is informed of any disputes between the Members all monies allocated to TDA’s account will be placed in suspense until the dispute is resolved, but no longer than 30 days.  Once TDA is informed that the dispute has been resolved TDA will ask all affected Members to provide written advice of the outcome. TDA will continue the disbursement of the monies according to the written advice.

In case members are unable to resolve the dispute within 30 days of first informing TDA of the dispute, further proceedings of handling the dispute shall be followed as agreed in the Service contract or similar agreement between the parties. All monies allocated to TDA’s account for the services of Digital Services Provider will be returned to the Client less the amount of TDA’s commission fee and transfer fees. TDA is not a party to any contract between Members, and you agree to release TDA from any claims, demands and damages as detailed described in section 4.3. Of this User agreement.

7. General Terms

Here are some important details about the Contract.

If a court with authority over this Contract finds any part of it unenforceable, you and we agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and we agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Contract.

To the extent allowed by law, the English language version of this Contract is binding and other translations are for convenience only. This Contract (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.

If we don’t act to enforce a breach of this Contract, that does not mean that TDA has waived its right to enforce this Contract. You may not assign or transfer this Contract (or your membership or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that TDA may assign this Contract to its affiliates or a party that buys it without your consent. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Contract.
