Our mission is to bridge the gap between skilled job seekers and employers in the construction and real estate industries. Our services are designed to connect members, facilitate conversation, and create opportunities for employment for qualified individuals within their local geographic region.
This Agreement applies to WRKS Inc., wrkspro.com, and other WRKS-related sites, apps, communications, and other services that are offered under this Contract, including the offsite collection of data for those Services (collectively, “WRKS”).
If you do not accept and agree to be bound by all of the terms of this Agreement, do not use this service.
1.1 Purpose of the App
WRKS is a technology platform that connects job seekers with companies looking to hire (collectively, the “Users”). When providing information, Users must not misrepresent their affiliations or qualifications. In all events Users shall be solely responsible for assessing and verifying the qualifications and suitability of Users. All Users must abide by all rules of professional conduct in their jurisdiction. WRKS Inc. shall at no time be liable to any Users or any Users’ clients for any liability with respect to the use of the WRKS Services.
WRKS is not an employment service. Users shall not receive or provide compensation for employment services through any of WRKS Services.
Users acknowledge that WRKS Inc. and WRKS do not provide employees ready to hire, employers ready to hire you, recommendations, assessments of fit between potential employers (also referred to as companies) and job seekers, or any other representation of the suitability of an company-job seeker match.
The Services are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 16.
1.2 Location-Based Services
WRKS is a location-based application. When the application is in use on your device, it will broadcast your location to all Users searching in cities nearby. Similarly, you will have access to the location of other Users of WRKS in cities nearby. The essence of this service is to connect companies looking to fill a position with job seekers, and to connect qualified job seekers with companies. Use of WRKS means you explicitly recognize that your location shall be broadcast to the WRKS network. WRKS assumes no responsibility or liability with respect to the use of this information. If you do not want your location to be used by WRKS, you should not use this service.
1.3 Changes to this Agreement
We may make changes to this Agreement and to the Services from time to time. We may do this for a variety of reasons including to reflect changes in the applicable laws, to incorporate new features, or due to changes in business practices. You should visit this page periodically to review the most recent version of the Agreement. The most recent version is the version that applies. If you continue to use the Services after the changes become effective, then you agree to the revised Agreement.

3 Paid Services
Without providing a payment method, Company users have access to WRKS on a Free Preview. The Free Preview allows Company users to create and complete a Company profile, create one job, and run a search that will return a list of job seekers within the WRKS Service matching the job. They will not be able to contact these users.
Certain Company Services will require payment and subscription to one of WRKS’ paid Services. The WRKS services that may be accessed after payment are currently referred to as the “Basic Plan”, the “Premium Plan”, the “Platinum Plan”, and “Pay As You Go” (together the “Paid Services”). You can learn more about our Paid Services by visiting our website.
By using any of our Paid Services and/or by subscribing any of WRKS Plans as an Company, you agree to be responsible for the specified fees and any applicable taxes. You will be asked to provide payment details when you subscribe.
Companies can subscribe any of the Basic, Premium, or Platinum plans available on either a monthly or a yearly subscription. Alternatively, there is an option to purchase a one-month Pay As You Go option to use the Services.
Payments are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by WRKS. For details on Payments, cancellations, and cooling off, see section 4 below.
3.1 Codes and Other offers
If you have purchased or received a code, gift card, or other offer provided or sold by or on behalf of WRKS for access to one of our Paid Services, or for a discount on Paid Services, separate terms and conditions presented to you along with the Code may also apply to your access to the Service, and you agree to comply with such terms and conditions.
3.2 Free Lifetime Subscription
As part of an introductory promotion, WRKS offered a “Free Lifetime Subscription” to Users. This promotion was offered at the sole discretion of WRKS and is for the Basic Plan.
If Users subscribed to the Free Lifetime Subscription wish to upgrade from the Basic Paid Services they can do so without the loss of their Free Lifetime Subscription. There will be additional charges for any User upgrading their subscription.
Free Lifetime Subscriptions are non-refundable and non-transferable.
WRKS reserves the right to terminate any User’s subscription for violation of any of the terms in this Agreement.

Refunds will not, however, be provided if you have used any of the Paid Services at any time during the Cooling-off Period.
If the User’s primary account payment method is determined to be invalid, expired, or otherwise unable to process Payment, WRKS may request a secondary Payment option or request Payment through a collection agent. WRKS Inc. reserves the right to establish, remove or revise Payments for any or all aspects of the Services provided through WRKS at any time.
