The Brandish Services
Brandish is a platform that allows the User to build a better brand by using analytics, metrics, reports and dashboards to establish, broaden and strengthen its brand.
Brandish solely provides a platform for Users and their clients (“Clients”) as a medium to use its software, analytics, metrics, reports and dashboards to expand and efficiently build the Users brand. All Users understand and acknowledge that (i) the Company does not conduct background checks on Clients and (ii) any provision of Services in a private location inherently increases the risks involved for both Clients and Users.
Brandish does not have control over the quality, suitability, reliability, timing, durability, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any Services provided by Users or Clients nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Users or Clients. Brandish makes no representations or warranties whatsoever with respect to services offered or provided by Users or requested by Clients through use of the Services, whether in public, private, or offline interactions, or about the accreditation, registration or licensing of any User. You understand that Brandish does not routinely screen its Users, inquire into the background of its Users or attempt to verify information provided by any User. Brandish does not verify or confirm that any User is who they claim to be or is accurately representing themselves and does not verify or confirm any representations with respect to Users on the Services. Brandish does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information provided through the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Brandish may, but is not obligated to, check the background and experience of Users via third-party background check services and first party interviews, including but not limited to a verification of identity and a comprehensive criminal background check, and may terminate a User based on any information discovered during such background checks and first party interviews. Whether or not Brandish conducts a background check or first party interview on a User, each Client must decide whether a User is suited to such Client's needs and should exercise caution and common sense to protect their personal safety and property, just as they would when interacting with anyone you don't know.
NEITHER COMPANY NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES AND YOU HEREBY RELEASE THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS FROM ANY LIABILITY RELATED THERETO.

By entering your payment information when requested, you authorize Brandish and its payment processors to charge and process the fees and charges assessed in connection with your order in accordance with the policy described on the User's Brandish page at the time of your payment. While Brandish takes what it believes to be reasonable efforts to ensure secure transmission of your information to third parties who assess and process payments, Brandish is not responsible for any fees or charges assessed by third parties or any errors in the processing of payments by third parties, including any errors that result from third-party negligence, improper transmission of payment information, your mistaken submission of payment
By creating an account with Brandish (an “Account”), you are granted a right to use the Services provided by Brandish subject to the restrictions set forth in these Terms of Service and any other restrictions stipulated to you by us in writing. Our registration process will ask you for information including your name and other personal information, and in registering for an Account, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration process and as requested from time to time by Brandish (such information, “Registration Data”). You further agree that, in providing such Registration Data, you will not knowingly omit or misrepresent any material facts or information and that you will promptly enter corrected or updated Registration Data via the Services, or otherwise advise us promptly in writing of any changes or updates to your Registration Data. You further consent and authorize us to verify your Registration Data as required for your use of and access to the Services. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Account of any User who provides inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, or who fails to comply with the account registration requirements.
Once you register for the Services, you shall receive a unique user identification and password in connection with your Account (collectively referred to herein as “Account IDs”). You must use your true and accurate name when signing up for an Account. You are required to select an appropriate and non-offensive Account ID. Ideally, the Account ID you choose will be a reasonably descriptive name that clearly identifies you. We reserve the right to remove or reclaim any Account ID if we believe, in our sole discretion, the Account ID is inappropriate, offensive or confusing or potentially violates the rights of a third party (such as when a trademark owner provides notice that an Account ID is similar to the trademark and the Account ID does not closely relate to the User's actual name or trademark rights).
You agree to maintain your Account solely for your own use. You agree that you will not allow another person to use your Account IDs to access or use the Services under any circumstances. You are solely and entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account IDs and for any charges, damages, liabilities or losses incurred or suffered as a result of you failure to do so.

Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third Party Accounts may be available on and through your Account on the Services. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Brandish's access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content may no longer be available on and through the Services. You will have the ability to disable the connection between your Account and your Third Party Accounts at any time. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS.

Brandish is not liable for any losses relating to chargebacks, fraudulent charges, or other actions by any User that are deceptive, fraudulent or otherwise invalid as determined in Brandish's sole discretion (“Fraudulent Actions”).

Unauthorized or Illegal Use
We may decide not to authorize or settle any transaction that you submit to us if we believe in our sole discretion that the transaction is in violation of these Terms of Service or any other Brandish agreement, or that it exposes Users, other Brandish Users, the PSP or Brandish to harm. Harm includes fraud and other criminal acts as determined by Brandish in our sole discretion. If we reasonably suspect that your Account has been used for an unauthorized, illegal, or criminal purpose, you give us express authorization to share information about you, your Account, and any of your transactions with law enforcement.
Brandish works with any US-issued and most non-US issued credit, debit, prepaid, or gift cards (“Cards”) with a Visa, MasterCard, or Discover logo.
