Welcome to Fictiv, which is owned and operated by Fictiv Inc, a Delaware corporation with its principal place of business at 168 Welsh St., San Francisco CA 94107 (“Fictiv” or “we”). This Manufacturing Partner Terms of Services (“MP Terms”) is made and entered into between Fictiv and you (“you” or “your” or “Manufacturing Partner”). PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. THESE TERMS CONSTITUTE A LEGALLY ENFORCEABLE AGREEMENT BY AND BETWEEN YOU AND FICTIV.
BY ACCESSING OR USING FICTIV’S WEBSITE (THE “SITE”), CLICKING ON THE “AGREE AND CONTINUE” BUTTON, BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT, OR BY COMPLETING FICTIV’S MANUFACTURING PARTNERSHIP APPLICATION (“APPLICATION”), YOU REPRESENT THAT (1) YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS, (2) YOU ARE OF LEGAL AGE TO FORM A BINDING CONTRACT WITH FICTIV, AND (3) YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT PERSONALLY OR ON BEHALF OF THE COMPANY YOU HAVE NAMED AS THE USER, AND TO BIND YOUR COMPANY TO THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE MP TERMS OR A MASTER SERVICES AGREEMENT EXECUTED BY YOU AND FICTIV, YOU MAY NOT USE THIS SITE OR PARTICIPATE IN FICTIV’S PARTNER MANUFACTURING PROGRAM AS DESCRIBED BELOW.
Fictiv may modify these MP Terms at any time, and such modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting of the modified version on the Site for orders placed after such modifications have been posted. Fictiv will also update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these MP Terms. If Fictiv makes any material changes, and you have registered with Fictiv to create an account as set forth in Section 2, Fictiv may also send you an email to the last email address you provided to Fictiv. Any changes to these MP Terms will be effective immediately for new users of the Site or Services (as defined below) and will be effective thirty (30) days after posting or providing notice of such changes on the Site for existing users (whichever is earlier). If you do not agree to any changes after receiving a notice of such changes, you shall stop using the Site and Services. Otherwise, your continued use of the Site shall be deemed your conclusive acceptance of the modified Terms.
In order to access the Fictiv Platform and be a member of the Fictiv manufacturing partner network, you must complete our Application. By submitting an Application, you agree to: (a) provide accurate, current, and complete information about you (and your company) and your manufacturing capabilities as may be prompted by the Application via the Site (“Account Information”); (b) maintain the security of your password and identification; (c) maintain and promptly update your Account Information, and any other information you provide to Fictiv, to keep it accurate, current, and complete; and (d) accept all risks of unauthorized access to your Account Information 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.
Fictiv’s Customers (as defined in Section 4 a) use the Site and Fictiv’s manufacturing partner network (“Manufacturing Partner Network”) to have manufactured parts produced (each, a “Product”) through the Manufacturing Partner dashboard. Customers seeking certain manufacturing services (“Services”) and Products submit requests to Fictiv (“Requests”). Fictiv, in turn, aggregates such Requests for Services and delegates such Requests to members of the Manufacturing Partner Network based on proprietary algorithms and other factors (each such delegation, a “Work Order”). For purposes of clarity you acknowledge that Fictiv is under no obligation to offer any Work Order to any Manufacturing Partner. Each Work Order includes: (a) the customer’s specifications, design file (3D drawing/CAD), instructions, and/or other information required and/or provided by Fictiv or Customer related to the design, development, manufacturing, purchase, performance, or production of the Products (“Specifications”), (b) the quantity of Products to be produced; (c) the delivery date and time for the Products (the “Delivery Date”) as well as the delivery method and delivery destination; (d) the prices/fees payable and, if applicable payment terms in exchange for completing the Work Order, and (e) shipping and handling fees (the “Fees”) ((a) through (e) above, together with the Terms and the terms and conditions set forth in a Work Order, are collectively the “Requirements”). You must accept or reject the Work Order within one (1) business day unless a different date and time is set forth in the Work Order (the “Acceptance Deadline”). Fictiv will consider any Work Orders you have not accepted by the Acceptance Deadline to be automatically rejected. Upon accepting a Work Order, you agree you will not be permitted to terminate or cancel such Work Order. You shall be liable for any and all damages or losses caused by any failure to perform as agreed upon in accepted Work Order(s). The aforementioned damages or losses mentioned in this clause are capped at the greater of (a) the amount in the applicable Work Order or SOW or (b) the cost to cover like products.
a) Manufacture and Delivery. You agree to perform the Services specified in the accepted Work Order pursuant to the Terms, including manufacturing the Products in strict compliance with all the Requirements and for the price(s) you provided in the quote for the manufacture and delivery of such Products. You shall not subcontract or delegate any of your obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of Fictiv. All Product shall be delivered ExWorks (Incoterms 2010) to the destination specified by Fictiv, and will be packaged in an adequate manner to protect and preserve the Product and in compliance with any instructions on the Work Order, if any. All shipment of Products shall be with a Fictiv approved carrier and with adequate liability and replacement insurance coverage. Title to the Products furnished by you shall vest in Fictiv or the customer who submitted the Work Order (the “Customer”), as applicable, when Products are inspected and accepted by Fictiv or the Customer, as applicable, pursuant to the Terms.
b) Inspection, Testing and Acceptance of Products. Fictiv or Customer (to the extent authorized in writing by Fictiv) shall have the right, but not the obligation, to inspect and test the Products for damage incurred during shipping and for non-conformity with the Work Order or Specifications. Within fifteen (15) business days of receipt by Fictiv or Customer (as the case may be), Fictiv reserves the right to reject any Product or Service that does not conform to the Requirements, and neither payment nor other conduct or inaction shall constitute acceptance of Product or Services before final testing and acceptance by Fictiv. In the event a Product or shipment is properly rejected in accordance with the terms herein, you agree to promptly, on receipt of notice of rejection, use best efforts to provide replacement Products, at your sole cost and expense. If Fictiv (or Customer) determines that the Products, as revised, still do not comply with the Requirements, Fictiv may either (a) afford you the opportunity to repeat the correction and modification as set forth above at no additional cost or charge to the Fictiv or the applicable Customer, (b) Fictiv may itself correct the Product(s) (or engage a third-party to do so) and may deduct the costs and reasonable expenses associated with such correction from the fees owed to you; or (c) cancel the Work Order without payment of any fees, costs or expenses to you.
c) Tooling and Testing Equipment. If Fictiv or its Customer provides you with any Fictiv (or Customer) raw materials, components, tooling and testing equipment (“Equipment”), you shall hold the Equipment as a bailee only and will not permit any lien or other encumbrance to be placed against it while in your care, custody, or control. Fictiv retains ownership of such Equipment. You shall use the Equipment solely and exclusively for Fictiv (or its Customers), and in compliance with any applicable Work Orders, SOWs, manuals and/or Specifications. You shall store all Equipment in a clean, safe and secure environment in accordance with industry standards for those Equipment. Under no circumstances will you move the Equipment from the location designated by Fictiv without Fictiv’s prior written consent, or deny Fictiv, its agents, or contractors, access to the Equipment, subject to Fictiv providing you with at least one (1) business day prior written notice. You agree to return the Equipment to Fictiv in the same condition as it was provided to you, except for normal wear and tear. You will be responsible for all maintenance, repair, replacement, physical loss of, theft or damage to, the Equipment while in your care, custody, or control, excluding normal wear and tear. The Equipment is provided to you “as is” and Fictiv disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

All rights in and to Fictiv Platform are reserved by Fictiv and its licensors. Except as expressly set forth herein, no express or implied license or right of any kind is granted to you regarding Fictiv Platform or any part thereof, including any right to obtain possession of any source code, data or other technical material related to the software. The Specifications that the Customer provides to Fictiv and/or uploads to the Fictiv Platform are the exclusive property of the Customer who submitted them either via email or the Site. Subject to the Terms, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited license to use, the Specifications and any other instructions that are provided by the Customer for the sole purpose of performing the obligations hereunder. You agree that upon the completion of your manufacturing obligations for any Work Order, or upon request from Fictiv, you will return or destroy the Specifications and any other instructions for such Work Order. You further understand and agree that the Specifications and other information uploaded by the Customer are the confidential and proprietary information of the applicable Customer, and you will not disclose the such Specifications or information to any third party, without the prior written consent of Fictiv or the applicable Customer; provided, that, you may disclose such Specifications and information to your employees who have a need to know and who are bound by confidentiality obligations no less restrictive than those contained herein.
If the Products includes or embodies in any manner your intellectual property, trade secrets and/or know-how, you hereby grant to Fictiv (and the Customer) an unrestricted, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable license to the extent necessary for the Customer to exploit, make, have made, use, market, import, distribute, copy, develop, modify, prepare derivative works of, perform, display, disclose and sublicense to the extent necessary to use, sell, manufacture, distribute, modify, exploit, service, support and otherwise commercialize the Product.
To the extent you improve, upgrade, modify or create derivates of any design specification files, technical outlines, schematics, or other material provided in the Specifications provided to you via the Site or pursuant to a Work Order (“Modifications”) you, to the fullest extent permitted by law, hereby assign to Fictiv all right, title, and interest in and to such Modifications including any and all Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) embodied therein, and you hereby, to the extent permitted by law, 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.

6. CANCELLATION OF WORK ORDER(S)
Fictiv may cancel or reduce a Work Order or any part thereof, at any time prior to your shipment of the Product. As long as you are in full compliance with the Requirements , if Fictiv cancels or terminates a Work Order within thirty (30) days of the Delivery Date, Fictiv agrees to pay you reasonable cancellation charges that consist solely of direct costs for materials and labor for the cancelled Work Order that are actually incurred by you before the notice of cancellation, minus the salvage amount that you can realize by selling or utilizing any materials. For cancellations or terminations thirty (30) days or more of the Delivery Date, you will only be entitled to invoice Fictiv for non-cancellable, non-returnable long lead materials that were expressly ordered by you to timely accommodate the specific Work Order. You shall take all reasonable actions to minimize any cancellation or delay charges unless otherwise agreed to by Fictiv in writing. Fictiv reserves the right to verify claims hereunder, and you agree to make reasonably available to Fictiv upon its request all relevant books, records, inventories and facilities for its inspection and audit. If you fail to make such records available to us, you shall be deemed to have waived and relinquished any claim asserted in connection with a Work Order cancelled by Fictiv. Work Orders rescheduled by Fictiv within ninety (90) days of their original delivery date shall not be considered cancelled or terminated and shall not trigger any financial liability for such Products unless otherwise agreed to by Fictiv in writing.
Fictiv may request a change to a Work Order or the Specifications. If Fictiv requests a change, you will use best efforts to accommodate such requests as soon as commercially reasonable. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Fictiv, you agree to promptly notify Fictiv of the impact such change will have on the Fees and the Delivery Date, if any, within three (3) business days 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 in writing.
8. CUSTOMER INTERFACE
You acknowledge and agree that Customer satisfaction is extremely important to Fictiv, and that in order to ensure such satisfaction, Fictiv requires that all Customer interface and communications must be directly with Fictiv and take place on or via the Site. As such, you covenant and agree that all contact and communications with a Customer related in any way to any Work Order, shall be conducted exclusively through Fictiv and via the Site unless expressly authorized by Fictiv in writing. You further acknowledge that Fictiv may monitor such contact and communications at any time without notice for the purpose of providing the Site and related services.
