Welcome to Fictiv, which is owned and operated by Fictiv Inc. The terms and conditions set forth below (these “Terms”) apply to your access to and use of fictiv.com (the “Site”), and your provision of manufacturing services as part of the Fictiv vendor network (collectively, the “Services”).
By being part of the Fictiv vendor network, accepting an order for manufacturing via the Site (a “Work Order”) or otherwise using the Site, you agree and acknowledge that: (a) you have read all of the terms and conditions of these Terms; (b) you understand all of the terms and conditions of these Terms; and (c) you agree to be legally bound by all of the terms and conditions of these Terms.
If you do not agree to all of the terms and conditions of these Terms, Fictiv is unwilling to provide you with a right to use the Site or Services.
If you are entering into the terms and conditions of these Terms on behalf of a company (or other entity) or if you are accessing the Services in your capacity as an employee, consultant, or agent of a company (or other entity), you represent that you are an employee, consultant, or agent of such company (or other entity) and you have the authority to agree on behalf of such company (or other entity) to all of the terms and conditions of these Terms.
THESE TERMS CONSTITUTE A LEGALLY ENFORCEABLE AGREEMENT BY AND BETWEEN YOU AND FICTIV.
In order to be a member of the Fictiv vendor network, you must register with Fictiv via the Site. By registering, you agree to: (a) provide accurate, current, and complete information about you as may be prompted by the registration forms via the Site (“Registration Data”); (b) maintain the security of your password and identification; (c) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you provide to Fictiv, to keep it accurate, current, and complete; and (d) accept all risks of unauthorized access to the Registration Data and any other information you provide to Fictiv. You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access certain areas of the Site. When you register with Fictiv, you should use a strong password. We suggest that you not use the same password with Fictiv as you use with other services, applications, or websites.
You must be at least 18 years old to access and use the Site and Services.
Fictiv’s customers use the Services to have manufactured parts produced (each, a “Product”) through the Fictiv vendor network.
Those seeking Services submit requests to Fictiv (“Requests”). Fictiv, in turn, aggregates Requests for Services and delegates such Requests to members of the Fictiv vendor network based on proprietary algorithms and other factors (each such delegation, a “Work Order”). Fictiv is under no obligation to offer any Work Order to any Fictiv vendor. Each Work Order includes: (a) the customer’s design file and/or technical specifications (“Specifications”), including the quantity of Products to be produced; (b) the delivery date and time for the Products (the “Delivery Date”) as well as the delivery method and delivery destination; and (c) the fees payable in exchange for completing the Work Order, including shipping and handling fees (the “Fees”) (together with the terms and conditions set forth in a Work Order, the “Requirements”). In addition, a Work Order shall also set forth the date and time by which you must accept or reject the Work Order (the “Acceptance Deadline”). Fictiv will consider any Work Orders you have not accepted by the Acceptance Deadline to be automatically rejected.
When you accept a Work Order, you agree to fulfill all of the Requirements set forth in such Work Order.
Fictiv grants to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable and limited license to use, reproduce and modify any design specification files, technical outlines, schematics, or other material provided in the Specifications provided to you via the Site and pursuant to a Work Order you accept (“Designs”) solely to develop the Products associated with such Work Order.
You may not use the Designs for any purpose other than the limited purpose set forth above.
You hereby assign to Fictiv all right, title, and interest in and to the Products developed pursuant to a Work Order including any and all Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) embodied therein, and you hereby irrevocably waive and agree never to assert any moral rights in or with respect to such Products that may exist anywhere in the world, together with all claims for damages and other remedies asserted on the basis of moral rights. For the purpose of this Agreement, “Intellectual Property Rights” means any and all copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, patent rights, trade secrets, and any other form of intellectual property rights recognized in any jurisdiction, including applications and registrations for any of the foregoing.
Fictiv may request a change to a Work Order. If Fictiv requests a change, you will provide the impact such change will have on the Fees and the Delivery Date within, at least, 24 hours of the date of the requested change. No change will be implemented unless and until Fictiv has approved the change and any related additional fees and/or development time.
On or before the applicable Delivery Date, all Products, as set forth in the applicable Work Order, will be (a) ready for pick-up by Fictiv from your headquarters, (b) delivered by you to Fictiv, or (c) mailed to Fictiv, as set forth in the Requirements. All Products delivered or mailed to Fictiv shall be delivered or mailed DDP destination (Incoterms 2010) to Fictiv’s office (1221 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103) or another destination as identified in the Work Order.
If you fail to make the Products available (as set forth in the applicable Work Order) on or before the applicable Delivery Date, Fictiv, at its sole discretion, may reduce the Fees set forth in the Work Order by 25% per day for each day after the applicable Delivery Date your delivery is late.
You shall be responsible for any loss or damage to any Products due to your failure to preserve, package, or handle the Products. You shall adhere to the packaging and shipping requirements that are set forth in the applicable Work Order.
You will make the Products available to Fictiv on or before the applicable Delivery Date, as set forth in the Requirements. Within 10 days of Fictiv’s or Fictiv’s customer’s receipt of the Products (as specified in a Work Order), Fictiv will provide to you a statement of the defects to be corrected with the Products, should any corrections be necessary. In the event that Fictiv provides you with a statement of defects, you will correct or remanufacture the Products and return the re-worked or new Products within a reasonable time frame as soon as possible after receipt of such statement of the defects to be corrected. Thereafter, if you fail to deliver the Products in a form that conforms to the Specifications upon your second submission under this section, Fictiv will not be obligated to pay the Fees for such Products.
Upon receipt of Products that conform to the Requirements (as determined in Fictiv’s sole discretion), Fictiv will pay the Fees (less any late fees, if applicable) to you via the Site. Fictiv will aggregate all Fees due to Vendor on a weekly basis and pay Vendor all Fees due at an agreed upon frequency.
You represent and warrant that: (a) you will perform the Services in a professional and workmanlike manner; (b) the Products will conform to the applicable Requirements (as determined in Fictiv’s sole discretion); (c) the Products will be free from defects in materials; (d) your production of Products will not conflict with any obligations to a third party; and (e) you will perform the Services in accordance with all applicable laws.

You will maintain in confidence the Confidential Information and will not use such Confidential Information except as expressly permitted in these Terms and to fulfill your manufacturing service obligations as a member of the Fictiv vendor network. You will use the same degree of care in protecting the Confidential Information as you use to protect your own confidential information from unauthorized use or disclosure, but in no event less than reasonable care.
