Welcome to UtilizeCore. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website(s), products, services and applications (the “Services”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Services, please contact us at:
Address: 236 West 27th Street, Floor 12, New York, New York 10001
Please read these Terms carefully. They cover important information about Services provided to you and any charges, taxes, and fees we bill you. These Terms include information about future changes to these Terms, automatic renewals, limitations of liability, a class action waiver and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES IN ANY MANNER.
ARBITRATION NOTICE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SECTION BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so these Terms may need to change along with our Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will place a notice on our site located at https://www.utilizecore.com, send you an email, and/or notify you by some other means.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 16 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 16 years of age; if you are a child under 16 years of age, please do not attempt to register for or otherwise use the Services or send us any personal information. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 16 years of age, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 16 years of age may have provided us personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, you may be able to access certain parts or features of the Services by using your account credentials from other services (each, a “Third Party Account”), such as those offered by Google, Outlook, and LinkedIn. By using the Services through a Third Party Account, you permit us to access certain information from such account for use by the Services. You are ultimately in control of how much information is accessible to us and may exercise such control by adjusting your privacy settings on your Third Party Account.
You represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you’ve received your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use the Services and have gotten your parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf). If you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization’s or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity).
You will only use the Services for your own internal, personal use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party. You will comply with all laws that apply to you, your use of the Services, and your actions and omissions that relate to the Services (for example, Brokers and Contractors must comply with all laws that relate to their respective Broker Services or Contractor Services (as defined below)). If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law.
You will not share your UtilizeCore User ID, account or password with anyone, and you must protect the security of your UtilizeCore User ID, account, password and any other access tools or credentials. You’re responsible for any activity associated with your UtilizeCore User ID and account.
UtilizeCore connects those facilitating services (“Brokers”), those providing services (“Contractors”), and those receiving services (“Clients”). When we use the word “you” in these Terms, it refers to any user, regardless of whether such user is a Broker, Contractor, or Client, while if we use one of those specific terms, it only applies to that category of user.
Before receiving services from any Broker (“Broker Services”) or any Contractor (“Contractor Services”), Clients are responsible for making their own determinations that the recommended Broker or Contractor is suitable. UtilizeCore is only responsible for connecting Brokers, Contractors, and Clients, and can’t and won’t be responsible for making sure that Broker Services or Contractor Services are actually provided or are up to a certain standard of quality. UtilizeCore similarly can’t and won’t be responsible for ensuring that information (including credentials) a Broker, Contractor, or Client provides about itself is accurate or up-to-date. We don’t control the actions of any Broker, Contractor, or Client, and neither Brokers nor Contractors are our employees.
Brokers and Contractors are independent contractors of Clients and not employees, partners, representatives, agents, joint venturers, independent contractors or franchisees of UtilizeCore. UtilizeCore does not offer the Broker Services or Contractor Services and does not employ individuals to perform the Broker Services or Contractor Services. You hereby acknowledge that UtilizeCore does not supervise, direct, control or monitor the Broker Services or Contractor Services and expressly disclaims any responsibility and liability for the Broker Services or Contractor Services, including but not limited to any warranty or condition of good and workmanlike services, warranty or condition of quality or fitness for a particular purpose, or compliance with any law, regulation, or code.
UtilizeCore also offers Clients the option to submit requests on this site (“Requests”). Such Requests may be accepted by a Broker. Client, at its discretion, may choose whether to accept or reject services from a Broker. If a Client decides to engage a Broker for a Request, such services constitute Broker Services and are subject to these Terms.
You acknowledge and agree that a legally binding contract (the “Service Agreement” ) may be formed when the Client and Broker agree on the terms of a Request. The terms of the Service Agreement include the terms set forth in these Terms, the engagement terms proposed and accepted on the Request, and any other contractual terms accepted by both the Client and the Broker to the extent such terms do not conflict with these Terms, and do not expand UtilizeCore’s obligations or restrict UtilizeCore’s rights under these Terms. UtilizeCore is not a party to any Service Agreement and the formation of a Service Agreement will not, under any circumstances, create an employment or other service relationship between UtilizeCore and the Broker, nor will it create an employment relationship between the Client and the Broker. Users do not have authority to enter into written or oral — whether implied or express — contracts on behalf of UtilizeCore.
Where approved in advance by the Client, the Broker is not obligated to personally perform the Request. The Broker may engage one or more Contractors to fulfill the Request and such services constitute Contractor Services and are subject to these Terms. The Broker assumes full and sole responsibility for the acts and omissions of such Contractors and is fully responsible for the lawful payment of all compensation, benefits and expenses of Contractors, if any, and for all required and applicable tax withholdings as to such Contractors.
The Client shall pay their Broker in full for all services provided under a Request, at the rates agreed to by the parties in the Service Agreement. Each user agrees to comply with the Service Agreement and this Agreement during the engagement, performance and completion of a Request.
Brokers are free to maintain a clientele without any restrictions from UtilizeCore and are free to offer and provide their services elsewhere, including through competing platforms. Brokers are free to accept or reject Clients and Requests. Brokers are not penalized for rejecting Clients or Requests, though if Brokers accept a Client or contract through this site, they are expected to fulfill their contractual obligations to the Client. Brokers set their own rates for services performed under Requests, without deduction by UtilizeCore. Brokers acknowledge and confirm that they are responsible for exercising their own business judgment in entering into Service Agreements and performing Requests and that, depending on how they exercise such business judgment, there is a chance for individual profit or loss.
Brokers alone are responsible for identifying and obtaining any required licenses, permits, or registrations before offering services and undertaking Requests. Indeed, certain types of Requests and services may be prohibited altogether, and it is the responsibility of Brokers to avoid such prohibited Requests and services. Penalties may include fines or other law enforcement. If you have questions about how national/ state/ provincial/ territorial and local laws apply to your Requests and related services, you should first seek appropriate legal guidance.
Because UtilizeCore does not supervise, scope, direct, control, or monitor a Broker’s work or performance of Requests, Clients must determine for themselves whether a Broker has the skills and qualifications necessary to perform the specific Request at hand. Clients may wish to consult their national/state/provincial/territorial or local requirements to determine whether certain Requests are required to be performed by a licensed or otherwise registered professional. Clients may also wish to discuss with their Broker any specific hazards, obstacles, or impediments in the Request location (both visible and concealed) that may impact the performance of the Request.
You acknowledge and agree that a violation of any provision in this Section is a material breach of these Terms.
As part of the Services, you may receive communications through the Services, including messages that UtilizeCore sends you (for example, via email or SMS). When signing up for the Services, you will receive a welcome message and instructions on how to stop receiving messages. By signing up for the Services and providing us with your wireless number, you confirm that you want UtilizeCore to send you information that we think may be of interest to you, which may include UtilizeCore using automated dialing technology to text you at the wireless number you provided, and you agree to receive communications from UtilizeCore, and you represent and warrant that each person you register for the Services or for whom you provide a wireless phone number has consented to receive communications from UtilizeCore. You agree to indemnify and hold UtilizeCore harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to your breach of the foregoing.
You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not provide or contribute anything, including any Content or User Submission (as those terms are defined below), to the Services, or otherwise use or interact with the Services, in a manner that:
A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access the Services.
No Broker or Contractor may collect any information from or relating to Clients (“Client Information”), whether via the Services, in the course of performing Broker Services or Contractor Services, or otherwise, beyond what is necessary to perform the Broker Services or Contractor Services for the applicable Client from or about whom such Client Information was collected. Providers also must not use any Client Information beyond what is necessary to perform the Broker Services or Contractor Services for such applicable Client. Upon the conclusion of the Broker Services or Contractor Services for a Client (or otherwise upon the request of such Client or UtilizeCore), Broker or Contractor must properly destroy all Client Information from or relating to such Client and make no further use of it whatsoever. Brokers or Contractors must collect, use, maintain, and transmit all Client Information in compliance with all applicable laws.
The materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, articles, photos, images, illustrations, User Submissions (as defined below) and so forth (all of the foregoing, the “Content”) are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws. You promise to abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content you access through the Services, and you won’t use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sell, commercialize or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content not owned by you, (i) without the prior consent of the owner of that Content or (ii) in a way that violates someone else’s (including UtilizeCore's) rights.
Subject to these Terms, we grant each user of the Services a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to use (i.e., to download and display locally) Content solely for purposes of using the Services. Use, reproduction, modification, distribution or storage of any Content for any purpose other than using the Services is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from us. You understand that UtilizeCore owns the Services. You won’t modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as expressly provided in this Section), create derivative works based on, or otherwise exploit any of the Services. The Services may allow you to copy or download certain Content, but please remember that even where these functionalities exist, all the restrictions in this Section still apply.
Anything you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Services is your “User Submission”. Some User Submissions may be viewable by other users. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any portion of the User Submission that contains financial data (including rates for services) shall not be shared or viewable by other users without your authorization. You are solely responsible for all User Submissions you contribute to the Services. You represent that all User Submissions submitted by you are accurate, complete, up-to-date, and in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
You agree that you will not post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Services any User Submissions that: (i) infringe any third party's copyrights or other rights (e.g., trademark, privacy rights, etc.); (ii) contain sexually explicit content or pornography; (iii) contain hateful, defamatory, or discriminatory content or incite hatred against any individual or group; (iv) exploit minors; (v) depict unlawful acts or extreme violence; (vi) depict animal cruelty or extreme violence towards animals; (vii) promote fraudulent schemes, multi-level marketing (MLM) schemes, get rich quick schemes, online gaming and gambling, cash gifting, work from home businesses, or any other dubious money-making ventures; or (viii) that violate any law.
By submitting User Submissions through the Services, you hereby do and shall grant UtilizeCore a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable and transferable license to use, edit, modify, truncate, aggregate, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, perform, and otherwise fully exploit the User Submissions in connection with this site, the Services and our (and our successors’ and assigns’) businesses, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of this site or the Services (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels (including, without limitation, third party websites and feeds), and including after your termination of your account or the Services. You also hereby do and shall grant each user of this site and/or the Services a non-exclusive, perpetual license to access your User Submissions through this site and/or the Services, and to use, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform such User Submissions, including after your termination of your account or the Services. For clarity, the foregoing license grants to us and our users do not affect your other ownership or license rights in your User Submissions, including the right to grant additional licenses to your User Submissions, unless otherwise agreed in writing. You represent and warrant that you have all rights to grant such licenses to us without infringement or violation of any third party rights, including without limitation, any privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, trademarks, contract rights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights.
Certain features of the Services allow you to share information with others, including through your social networks or other Third Party Accounts. When Content is authorized for sharing, we will clearly identify the Content you are authorized to redistribute and the ways you may redistribute it, usually by providing a “share” button on or near the Content. If you share information from the Services with others through your Third Party Accounts, such as your social networks, you authorize UtilizeCore to share that information with the applicable Third Party Account provider. Please review the policies of any Third Party Account providers you share information with or through for additional information about how they may use your information. If you redistribute Content, you must be able to edit or delete any Content you redistribute, and you must edit or delete it promptly upon our request.
Finally, you understand and agree that UtilizeCore, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users (including you), may need to make changes to your User Submissions to conform and adapt those User Submissions to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.
In accordance with the DMCA, we’ve adopted the following policy toward copyright infringement. We reserve the right to (1) block access to or remove material that we believe in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users and (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Company may, in its discretion, send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Company may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider accused of committing infringement, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Company's discretion.
Please contact UtilizeCore's Designated Agent at the following address:
Attn: DMCA Designated Agent

Any information or Content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Content originated, and you access all such information and Content at your own risk, and we aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that information or Content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services. We can’t guarantee the identity of any users with whom you interact in using the Services and are not responsible for which users gain access to the Services.
You are responsible for all Content you contribute, in any manner, to the Services, and you represent and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it.
The Services may contain links or connections to third-party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by UtilizeCore. When you access third-party websites or use third-party services, you accept that there are risks in doing so, and that UtilizeCore is not responsible for such risks.
If there is a dispute between participants on this site or Services, or between users and any third party, you agree that UtilizeCore is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release UtilizeCore, its directors, officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. You shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542 or any similar law of any jurisdiction, which says in substance: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
We’re always trying to improve our Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you. We reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice.
The Services may be free or we may charge a fee for using the Services. If you are using a free version of the Services, we will notify you before any Services you are then using begin carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services. Note that if you elect to receive text messages through the Services, data and message rates may apply. Any and all such charges, fees or costs are your sole responsibility. You should consult with your wireless carrier to determine what rates, charges, fees or costs may apply to your use of the Services.
UtilizeCore is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. UtilizeCore has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms; for example, a Client who believes that a Broker or Contractor may be in breach of these Terms is not able to enforce these Terms against that Broker or Contractor.
Account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account.
If you have deleted your account by mistake, contact us immediately at email@example.com – we will try to help, but unfortunately, we can’t promise that we can recover or restore anything.
Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us, including without limitation the arbitration agreement.
Through our mobile applications, you may purchase (“In-App Purchase”) certain goods or features designed to enhance the performance of the Services. When you make an In-App Purchase, you are doing so through either the Apple iTunes service or the Google Play service and you are agreeing to their respective Terms and Conditions, available at http://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/us/terms.html http://play.google.com/intl/en_us/about/play-terms.html. UtilizeCore is not a party to any In-App Purchase.
These Terms apply to your use of all the Services, including our iOS applications (the “Application”) available via the Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) App Store, but the following additional terms also apply to the Application:
Warranty Disclaimer. UtilizeCore and its licensors, suppliers, partners, parent, subsidiaries or affiliated entities, and each of their respective officers, directors, members, employees, consultants, contract employees, representatives and agents, and each of their respective successors and assigns (UtilizeCore and all such parties together, the “UtilizeCore Parties”) make no representations or warranties concerning the Services, including without limitation regarding any Content contained in or accessed through the Services, and the UtilizeCore Parties will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Services or any claims, actions, suits procedures, costs, expenses, damages or liabilities arising out of use of, or in any way related to your participation in, the Services. The UtilizeCore Parties make no representations or warranties regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through or in connection with the Services, including any Broker Services or Contractor Services. THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY UTILIZECORE (AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN “AS-IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL ANY OF THE UTILIZECORE PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, (B) ANY SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY, (C) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) ONE-HUNDRED ($100) DOLLARS OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID AND/OR PAYABLE BY YOU TO UTILIZECORE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM OR (D) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL OR CERTAIN OTHER DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Indemnity. You agree to indemnify and hold the UtilizeCore Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to any claims relating to (a) your use of the Services (including any actions taken by a third party using your account), and (b) your violation of these Terms. In the event of such a claim, suit, or action (“Claim”), we will provide notice of the Claim to the contact information we have for your account (provided that failure to deliver such notice shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligations hereunder).
Assignment. You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without UtilizeCore's prior written consent. Upon notice, we may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent.
Choice of Law. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the State of New York, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof.
Arbitration Agreement. Please read the following ARBITRATION AGREEMENT carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with UtilizeCore and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from UtilizeCore.
Miscellaneous. You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that the UtilizeCore may, in its sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for itself as it sees fit. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms are found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and UtilizeCore agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and UtilizeCore, and that these Terms supersede and cancel all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are not an employee, agent, partner, or joint venture of UtilizeCore, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind UtilizeCore in any respect whatsoever.
Except as expressly set forth in the sections above regarding the Apple Application and the arbitration agreement, you and UtilizeCore agree there are no third-party beneficiaries intended under these Terms.

What is this policy? In order to provide a high-quality solution and be aligned with the current standard procedures across the software industry, UtilizeCore has developed the following policy. This details an in depth explanation of the proper procedures and guidelines required to release an update, fix, or enhance the platform in the production environment.
Following the provided guidelines will ensure that when an update is released to production, the production environment maintains our SLA and operating standards. Our goal is to make sure users don’t experience any issues.
Please read the following guidelines and procedures carefully. We want to ensure that best practices are kept with our users.
All the enhancements and bugs that have been requested and documented during the implementation process, ongoing product meetings, and through the support channels will be categorized into two categories: General Release or Specific Release.
Specific Release: Can be set up by a client, Monday through Friday.
General Release: Will happen on a bi-weekly to monthly schedule.
Production Release bug (any bug related to the recent release)
Default Criteria: Critical Priority (Severity I)
Definition= All updates, changes, enhancements, and solutions relating to anything that disrupts a company from being able to effectively run their business or threaten a relationship with clients, vendors, or employees. (accounting, invoicing, Work Order flow, vendor management).
Emergency Criteria (priority/severity):
Emergency Release Guidelines:
Production Release bugs (any bug related to the recent release)
When the release to production did not satisfy the client’s User Acceptance Testing or there are bugs that can not be resolved in a short period of time that jeopardize the business operations, the Rollback process will take the platform back to the previous stage before the release to production happened. See below the guidelines in order to proceed with a rollback.

The General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) went into effect on May 25, 2018. The regulation harmonizes the patchwork of privacy regulations currently in effect around Europe. The regulations help people stay in control of their information, and UtilizeCore agrees with this principle. UtilizeCore does not sell customer data or use it for anything other than helping Service Managers. GDPR requires that companies take security and privacy seriously. It also requires transparency about how data is stored, moved, and processed. Companies must allow data subjects to control their data, and EU residents can ask for their data to be corrected, deleted, or exported. Companies need to document how they bulk process their customers’ information. They must enforce policies to protect that data, and for larger data processing operations, they need to have a Data Protection Officer with the power to control how data is processed and protected. Like the laws currently in effect, the GDPR defines when it is okay for companies to move data out of the EU.
UtilizeCore has worked with world-class legal, privacy, and cybersecurity consultants to audit its products and processes for GDPR compliance. In accordance with the regulation, we have balanced the need for security and data privacy protection with the legal, contractual, and commercial requirements of service managers.
The GDPR requires that data controllers define how data processors use the data they get from controllers. UtilizeCore has updated its Master SaaS Agreement, which provides the necessary information and includes the required components for GDPR, including standard contractual clauses for international data transfers.
We cannot cannot give you legal advice and ultimately you are responsible for your compliance to all laws. This FAQ represents a dedicated effort, working with world-class counsel and consultants, to understand GDPR and its impact on service management.
