Mentoring Providers are defined as such: Mentor: Providers who will engage with Mentees in providing advice, experience and recommendations. Advertiser: Providers who advertise their services on this site.

You acknowledge that the website located at http://www.success4business.ca (the “Site”) is a copyrighted work belonging to Success 4 Business.

1.0 Terms of Use

The terms of use that follow may change without prior notice and it is the Provider’s responsibility to review for such updates.

1.1 General

S4B provides an online platform to facilitate transactions for Providers who wish to sign up to provide Mentoring, and/or d) Advertise in the Directory. The Site enables Mentees to identify, book and pay for mentoring services from S4B Mentoring Providers.

We do not control the information provided by Mentees through our system. You may find some Mentees’ information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution and common sense when communicating with Mentees using this site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense. By using this Site, Providers agree to accept such risks and S4B is not responsible for the acts or omissions of Mentees on the Site.

S4B reserves the right to terminate the registration of any Provider on the Site without reason, including any Provider that S4B determines not to be acting in accordance with the provisions of this User Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, S4B may terminate the registration of a Provider if deemed to be acting in a manner that may give rise to any form of legal liability for Mentees or S4B, infringing on someone else’s intellectual property rights, engaging in fraudulent, immoral or illegal activities, or engaging in any other activity or behaviour that has the potential to adversely impact upon other Mentees, Providers or Success 4 Business.

1.2 Relationship Between Providers and S4B

You acknowledge and agree that the relationship between Providers and S4B is that of independent contractors. Nothing in this User Agreement creates a partnership, joint venture, agency or employment relationship between Success 4 Business and any Provider.

1.3 Relationship Between Mentee and Provider

Mentees initiating any mentoring opportunities do solely between themselves, S4B and Providers. Once a Mentee has identified and requested a Provider on the Site and the Provider has agreed to deliver services at the current value, the Provider agrees to deliver the Services in accordance with this User Agreement and the agreement provided by the Provider.

1.4 Mentee Responsibilities

When a Mentee requests Mentoring Services with you, and you confirm the acceptance of those Services, a legally binding contract between both parties is created. Mentees are responsible for ensuring that they comply with obligations to you, the Provider. If they do not comply with these obligations as confirmed in the Booking Confirmation Agreement Terms, they may become liable to you, the Provider and you may wish to cancel your contract if the Mentee refuses to cooperate with you and any agreements in place at the time.

1.5 Providers Responsibilities

When a Mentee confirms payment or a service, and a Provider confirms these Services with S4B, a legally binding contract between both Mentee and the Provider is created. You are responsible for ensuring that you comply with your obligations to the Mentee. If you do not comply with your obligations, you may become liable to that Mentee.

If a Mentee breaches any obligation to a Provider, Providers are solely responsible for enforcing any rights that they may have. For the avoidance of doubt, Success 4 Business has no responsibility for enforcing any Providers’ rights.

Because user identification on the Internet is difficult, we cannot and do not confirm each Mentee’s purported identity. Any violation of the terms of this Agreement by other Members or Consumers shall be reported by any Provider.

E-mails and information sent after payment and during sessions regarding to services between Consumers and Providers are not readily accessible to S4B or the general public and will be treated as private by S4B to the extent permitted by applicable law.

1.6 Terminations

S4B has the explicit right to temporarily suspend or permanently de-activate the Membership of any S4B Provider.

In addition, S4B Providers may not actively contact Mentees outside of S4B after a service has been rendered in order to gain additional business on various programs, topics or courses that they offer, unless authorized by the Mentee. If S4B discovers that a particular S4B Provider is contacting S4B clients for this reason, S4B reserves the right to permanently remove said S4B Provider from the S4B website and to terminate the relationship.
