Requis provides a digital commerce platform (“Marketplace”) for the enterprise, allowing companies to manage their supply chains from procurement through disposition. The Site allows registered users (“Users”) to buy and sell assets, including products, equipment, parts, commodities and other materials (“Assets”). While we facilitate many types of transactions, we are neither the buyer or seller in these transactions. We are the facilitator. We have no control over the quality, safety or availability of Assets offered for sale, nor do we control whether a buyer will complete a transaction. As such, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the listings, the credit-worthiness of the buyer, or any other aspect of the transaction. Users enter transactions at their own risk, and as explained more fully below, we disclaim all liability to the fullest extent allowed by law.
By accessing or using the website located at http://requis.com or any mobile application that provides access to our Marketplace (collectively, the “Site”), you agree to be bound by these Terms and all of the terms incorporated herein by reference.
By accepting these Terms, you represent that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older and that, if you have accepted these Terms on behalf of any person or entity, you represent that you have legal authority to do so and that such person or entity agrees to be responsible to us if you or such person or entity violates these Terms.
If you do not agree to every provision of these Terms, you may not, and we do not authorize you to, access or use the Site or any features provided on the Site.
By accessing or using the Site, you represent and warrant that you have not been previously suspended or removed from the Site or engaged in any activity that could result in suspension or removal from the Site.
These Terms may be revised at any time for any reason, and we may provide you notice of these changes by any reasonable means, including by providing notice through the Site. You can determine when we last updated the Terms by referring to the “Last Updated” legend at the top of these Terms. Except to the extent that your express consent to any revised Terms is required under data protection law, by continuing to access, browse or use the Site, you confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms and all the terms incorporated herein by reference. We strongly recommend that you periodically visit this page of the Site to review these Terms. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you may not access or use the Site.
2. Registration and Personal Data
In order to access and use certain areas or features of the Site, you will need to register for an account. Each registration is for a single user only.
By creating an account, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete account information, (b) maintain and promptly update, as necessary, your account information, (c) maintain the security of your account credentials, (d) be responsible for the acts or omissions of any third party who has authority to access or use the Site on your behalf, and (e) immediately notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to the Site or your account. Any changes to your registration information may be made by updating your account information on the Site. If you provide information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we may suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site.
By creating an account, you also consent to receive electronic communications from Requis (e.g. via email or by posting notices to the Site). These communications may include notices about your account (e.g. payment authorizations, password changes and other transactional information) and are part of your relationship with us. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing. You should maintain copies of electronic communications from us by printing a paper copy or saving an electronic copy. We may also send you promotional communications via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein.
3. Using the Requis Marketplace
Requis is designed for the enterprise. Organizations that wish to participate in the Marketplace may visit the Site to submit an application, which may be accepted or rejected in our absolute discretion. Membership may also be revoked at any time in our sole discretion. Please do not apply to become a User if your organization is insolvent, involved in bankruptcy proceedings, or under any legal incapacity that could affect your ability to complete a transaction. While we undertake certain vetting processes prior to registration, please note that we make no guarantees regarding the Users of the Site. You acknowledge and agree that you enter all transactions at your own risk. Requis has no responsibility for any disputes between Users.
Users (“Sellers”) may list Assets for sale through the Marketplace for other Users (“Buyers”) to purchase. Each time the Seller wishes to list an Asset for sale, the Seller will provide listing information that will accurately identify and describe all material features of the Asset to be listed. Seller is solely responsible for complying with all applicable laws governing the possession, promotion, marketing, offer for sale, sale, transfer, purchase and use of any Asset listed for sale, including but not limited to all export controls, embargos, and sanction orders. You represent and warrant that (i) neither you nor any Asset listed on the Marketplace are located in or a national or resident of a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a "terrorist supporting" country, and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
The Seller remains entirely responsible for the accuracy and content of the listing. By placing the listing with us, the Seller represents and warrants that it owns the listed Asset and has the right to sell it free and clear of any encumbrances. The Seller also represents and warrants that the listing accurately describes the functionality and condition of the Asset. We reserve the right to publish the listings in the Marketplace as we choose (e.g. we may decide whether the listing appears in search results and in what order). We also reserve the right to remove any listing for any reason, including violation of these Terms.
Buyers are responsible for carefully reading the entire listing before placing a bid on the Marketplace. The Buyer with the winning bid will be put in touch with the Seller to arrange for delivery or collection of the Assets. We do not transfer legal ownership of the Asset from the Seller to the Buyer, that is accomplished through the agreement reached between or among our Users. We do not provide any guarantees or warranties with respect to the transaction or purchased Asset, which will be provided “as-is” unless otherwise specified by the Seller. The Buyer and Seller are responsible for negotiating all delivery terms, including the responsibility for shipping, inspection, repair, or any other services. You acknowledge that Requis is not responsible for acquiring, shipping, delivering or otherwise completing any transactions with respect to the Assets listed on the Site.
We may provide options for third party services related to the transaction facilitated by the Marketplace, such as escrow, shipping or dispute resolution services. We disclaim all responsibility with respect to any such services, as we have no control over their provision. Inclusion on the Site does not mean that we recommend or endorse any products, services or third party providers. All third party options are provided solely for information purposes, which you are free to utilize or ignore.
4. Payment and Billing Information
There is no charge for listing an Asset on the Marketplace or placing a bid. For each Asset sold to a Buyer, Requis will charge the Buyer a fee set as a percentage of the total sale price, before tax, which will be specified in the Listing for each Asset. Depending on the particular Asset and the Services provided to the Seller, Requis may also collect a fee from the Seller. Following completion of a sale, we will invoice the Buyer directly for the total sale price plus our fee and any applicable taxes (“Total Sale Price”). The Total Sale Price must be paid by the Buyer into the bank account designated by us within five (5) business days of receipt of the invoice. Any late payments will be subject to an interest charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Once the funds have cleared our bank account (and upon presentation of a valid invoice from the Seller), we will remit the Total Sale Price to the Seller, minus our fee and any applicable taxes (“Sale Proceeds”). Buyers and Sellers are responsible for all currency conversion and other transaction fees.
By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize our third party payment processor to charge your payment method for the total amount of your invoice (including any applicable taxes and other charges). You must promptly resolve any problem encountered with your payment. You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers or changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize or our third party payment processor to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.
All bids and orders made within the Marketplace are made net of any taxes imposed with respect to the purchase of an Asset on the Marketplace. The Buyer is liable for all such taxes or for establishing a valid exemption certificate from such taxes.
In order to facilitate the payment for an Asset from a Buyer to the Seller, Requis will collect the payment from the Buyer and remit to the Seller as detailed in Section 4 above. Where Requis is required to generate an invoice either to collect payment from the Buyer on behalf of the Seller or for the Seller in order to remit the Sale Proceeds, Requis will use reasonable efforts to correctly determine any taxes and/or duties that apply. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, ultimately the Seller and/or the Buyer is responsible for reporting, collecting and timely remitting all applicable taxes (e.g. sales tax, VAT or other indirect taxes, etc.), duties, fees and other charges related to all transactions facilitated on the Marketplace and you agree that Requis will not be liable for any loss suffered as a result of Requis’ calculation of any taxes or duties on an invoice.
Requis will also collect and remit applicable taxes that apply to fees charged by Requis for the Requis services, and such taxes will be charged in addition to our fee. If our services are subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. In addition, Requis reserves the right to report, collect and remit applicable taxes (e.g. sales tax, VAT or other indirect taxes, etc.), duties, fees and other charges related to sale of Assets in jurisdictions that assert Requis has such a reporting, collection or remittance obligation, and Buyer agrees to fully reimburse Requis for such taxes, duties, fees and other charges. You will provide us any information we reasonably request to determine whether we are obligated to collect sales tax from you, including your identification or registration number. If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing us with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates or documentation for each taxing jurisdiction. We will apply the tax exemption certificates or documentation to charges under your account occurring after the date we receive the tax exemption certificates or documentation. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required.

16. Arbitration And Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH REQUIS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
YOU AND REQUIS AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS, OR THE SERVICES SHALL BE FINALLY DECIDED BY BINDING ARBITRATION UNDER THE RULES OF THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION GOVERNING COMMERCIAL DISPUTES. Arbitration uses a single, neutral arbitrator to decide a dispute (instead of a judge or jury); arbitration allows for more limited discovery than in a court case; and the arbitration process and result is subject to very limited review by courts. In an arbitration you have the right, at your expense, to be represented by an attorney of your choosing. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief under these Terms that a court can award under these Terms. You and Requis agree that any in-person arbitral hearing would occur in the United States in Harris County, Texas unless another location in the U.S. is required by law. Requis further agrees that your filing fee for an arbitration will be capped at the amount set by the American Arbitration Association. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Requis are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and the termination of your use of the Site. REGARDLESS OF THE FORUM, YOU AND REQUIS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Requis agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not join or consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
17. Modifications to the Site

The International Convention on the Sale of Goods, and other international treaties that are not mandatory with respect to the Site or Services provided by us, shall not apply.

• The Seller and Requis agree that Requis, on behalf of the Seller, makes supplies to third parties; • Requis will be treated as making the supplies specified in these Terms to the third parties; • The Seller will be treated as making corresponding supplies to Requis; • If the corresponding supply by the Seller to Requis is a taxable supply, the value of this supply is equal to 10/11 of the amount that is payable to the Seller by Requis in respect of the Seller’s supply; • If the corresponding acquisition by Requis from the Seller is a creditable acquisition, the value of this acquisition is to have the value equal to 10/11 of the amount that is payable to the Seller by Requis in respect of Requis’ acquisition; • In the case of supplies to the third parties, Requis will issue to the third parties, in Requis’ own name, all the tax invoices and adjustment notes relating to those supplies; • The Seller will not issue to the third parties any tax invoices and adjustment notes relating to those supplies; and • The arrangements in this Section will cease to have effect if the Seller or Requis cease to be registered for GST purposes.
All amounts contemplated by these Terms are exclusive of GST. If a party makes a supply under or in connection with these Terms in respect of which GST is payable (including in situations where the 153-B Agreement does not apply), the amount payable by the recipient of the supply is increased by an amount equal to the GST exclusive consideration multiplied by the rate of GST prevailing at the time the supply is made.
