Last updated: December 2023 

 

The following are Terms of Service (“Terms“) which serve as a legal agreement between you and the relevant Jiga entity, as set out below (“Jiga“, “us“, “our“, or “we“) for the use of its platform (“Platform“) through which its customers (“Customers“) can upload 3D models and have products manufactured based on the models uploaded. Through the Platform, Jiga also engages manufacturers (“Manufacturers“) to assist in provision of manufacturing services (“Manufacturing Services“) and production of products for Customers. Jiga’s Privacy Notice, available at https://jiga.io/privacy-notice-manufacturers/ (“Privacy Notice“) describes Jiga’s collection, processing and transfer of any Personal Data (as such term is defined in the Privacy Notice). “You” means an individual accepting these Terms on behalf of a Manufacturer. 

 

Please read these Terms carefully. By clicking on the button marked “I agree” you signify your assent to these Terms on behalf of the Manufacturer. Changes may be made to these Terms from time to time and continued use by the Manufacturer of the Platform following any changes to these Terms signifies its assent to the amended Terms. If you or the Manufacturer do not agree to any of these Terms, please do not click the button marked “I agree” and do not use the Platform.

 

  • Provision of Manufacturing Services

 

  • During the Term (as defined below) and subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Manufacturer agrees to provide certain Manufacturing Services and deliverables to Jiga or Customers as may be detailed and agreed within the Platform (“Deliverables“). The details of Deliverables to be provided, such as specifications, quantities, performance timelines, milestones, fees to be paid, payment schedules, and other service-specific terms shall be as agreed within the Platform.
  • Manufacturer may use third-party subcontractors to provide the Manufacturing Services, subject to Jiga’s or the Customer’s, as applicable, prior written approval and provided that Manufacturer remains fully liable for the acts and omissions of any subcontractors. 
  • Manufacturer will be responsible for obtaining, at its expense, any regulatory and government approvals necessary for the provision of the Manufacturing Services as contemplated hereunder. At Jiga’s written request, Manufacturer will provide copies of all such approvals and submissions to governmental authorities, and Jiga will have the right to use any and all information provided in connection with its own regulatory approval processes and/or commercial development.
  • Jiga shall be responsible for arranging for collection and transport of Deliverables from Manufacturer’s facilities. Manufacturer shall ensure that the Deliverables shall be ready in accordance with the time schedule agreed with Jiga and shall reasonably cooperate with the delivery means instructed by Jiga for the collection and transport of Deliverables.

 

  • Account Registration

 

    • Manufacturers will generally be required to register a dedicated account through which they and their authorized users will be able to access the Platform. However, if the Manufacturer is invited to use the Platform by a Customer, the Manufacturer may access the Platform and provide a price quote to the applicable Customer without registration.
    • Use of and access to the Platform is void where prohibited by law. By registering on behalf of the Manufacturer, you represent and warrant that (a) you are at least 18 years of age and have the ability to form a binding contract; (b) you are authorized to enter into, and bind the Manufacturer to these Terms; and (c) the Manufacturer shall comply with applicable laws, regulations, guidelines, and these Terms throughout its use of the Platform.
  • To the extent applicable, Manufacturer agrees to notify Jiga immediately of any unauthorized use of its account credentials. Manufacturer and each authorized user to whom it provides access to its account credentials is fully responsible for the security of any computer system and/or mobile device through the account is accessed and all activities within the account. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Jiga will not be liable for any losses or damage arising from unauthorized use of Manufacturer’s account or password, and Manufacturer agrees to indemnify and hold Jiga harmless for any unauthorized, improper, or illegal use of its account and any charges and taxes incurred. Jiga does not police for and cannot guarantee that it will learn of or prevent, any inappropriate use of the Platform.

 

  • Termination of Account

 

  • Jiga may suspend or terminate the Manufacturer’s account at any time by providing three (3) days prior notice. In addition, upon occurrence of any of the following events, Jiga may suspend or terminate the Manufacturer’s account with immediate effect and may take any other corrective action it deems appropriate: (i) violation of the letter or spirit of these Terms, (ii) fraudulent, harassing, or abusive behavior, (iii) behavior that is illegal or harmful to Customers, third parties, or the business interests of Jiga. If the Manufacturer’s account is terminated, it may not rejoin Jiga again without express permission. Jiga may modify or discontinue the Platform for all users at any time, provided, however, that such changes will not apply to outstanding orders placed through the Platform. Upon termination of the Manufacturer’s account, it shall not have any further access to any content that may be available through its account.
  • We reserve the right to investigate suspected violations of these Terms or illegal and inappropriate behavior through the Platform. We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity, behavior, or content of anyone believed to have violated these Terms or to have engaged in illegal behavior in connection with the Platform. 
  • Manufacturer may request termination of its Jiga account at any time and for any reason by sending an email to [email protected]. Following such request, Jiga shall close the account as soon as reasonably practicable. Any suspension or termination of an account shall not affect Manufacturer’s obligations under these Terms (including but not limited to ownership, indemnification, any representations and warranties made hereunder, limitation of liability) which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension or termination and shall not affect any outstanding orders. 

 

  • Ordering Process.

If Deliverables are rejected, Manufacturer will correct any non-conformance or defects, at no additional cost, within seven (7) days of receiving a notice detailing the basis for the rejection. If redelivered Deliverables are again rejected due to non-conformance or defects, the above process will be repeated as needed until conforming Deliverables are provided and accepted in accordance with Section 5.3 below. 
  • A Deliverable shall be deemed accepted it has not been rejected in writing within 30 days of its receipt by the relevant Customer or it is confirmed in writing by either Jiga or the Customer. Neither payment for, nor use or inspection of the Deliverables shall be considered acceptance.

Any non-conforming Deliverable subject to the Warranty may be returned to Manufacturer for repair, replacement, or a refund of the original purchase price at Jiga’s discretion.
