Terms of Service
These Terms of Service last updated as of April 14, 2020.
CoderPad, Inc. encourages you to carefully read these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) before using coderpad.io (“the Website” or “the Service”) operated by CoderPad, Inc. (referred to as “CoderPad”, “us”, “we”, or “our”). This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions for your use of, or subscription to, CoderPad.io.
By accessing or using the Website in any manner, including, but not limited to, visiting or browsing the Website or contributing content or other materials to the Website, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
These Terms are made by and between the party on whose behalf they are accepted (the “Subscriber”, “you” or “your”) and CoderPad, Inc. If you are entering into or accepting these Terms on behalf of a legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority and capacity to bind such entity to these Terms, in which case the term “Subscriber” or “you” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or do not agree to be bound by all of the provisions of these Terms, do not access or use CoderPad’s services.
This Website is only intended for individuals who are at least 16 years of age. We do not knowingly encourage or solicit visitors to this Website who are under the age of 16 or knowingly collect personal data from anyone under the age of 16 without parental fiduciary consent.
License and Access
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, and your payment of any applicable fees, CoderPad grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, personal license to access and make use of the Service. All rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms are reserved. You may not misuse the Service. You may use the Service only as permitted by law. The licenses granted by CoderPad will terminate automatically and without further notice if you do not comply with these Terms.
Account Types and Terms
Free Accounts and Trial Accounts: You may register for a free account on the Website. A free account does not provide you with access to all functionalities of the Service. Free accounts have a term that runs until you close the account or CoderPad terminates the account (which CoderPad may do at any time at its sole discretion and without notice for any reason).
You may request a free trial of the Service, which CoderPad may agree to provide at its sole discretion. You may not have more than one trial account at a time, and you may not serially sign up for trial accounts to avoid paying for the Service. A trial account is valid for seven (7) days unless otherwise agreed by CoderPad; however, CoderPad may at its sole discretion terminate any trial account immediately and without notice for any reason. After the seven (7) day trial period, if you do not sign up for a paid account, your trial account will become a free account with more limited functionality than trial accounts and paid accounts.
CoderPad provides free accounts and trial accounts for use on an “as is” basis, without any warranties of any kind, express or implied, and to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, CoderPad disclaims all liability with respect to your access of the Website and use of the Service pursuant to a free account or a trial account.
Paid Accounts: Paid accounts for the Service are a month-by-month subscription, and automatically renew until 1) you stop paying the fees for the paid account or 2) the paid account is terminated in accordance with these Terms. There are different tiers of paid accounts available from CoderPad. More information regarding the account tiers and their pricing is available at https://coderpad.io/pricing. Subscribers may not have more than one paid account at a single company (including such company’s affiliates). If you stop paying the fees for a paid account, the account will become a free account and will have more limited functionality than the paid account.
The Service is billed in advance on a recurring monthly basis and payments are non-refundable. All fees will be paid in US dollars. There will be no refunds for cancellation of partial months of service. However, in the case of upgrades and downgrades of the Service tier which Subscriber is purchasing, Subscriber will be credited pro-rata for remaining unused time on the original plan. Downgrading your Service tier may cause the loss of certain features or capacity of the account; CoderPad does not accept any liability for such loss. For any billing questions or disputes, please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to work out resolution.
All paid plans require a valid credit card or advance arrangement of a custom billing plan unless otherwise agreed by CoderPad.
If any subscription paid by credit card is 21 or more days overdue, we may, without limiting any rights and remedies, cease the provision of Service to Subscriber until the overdue amount is paid in full.
Prior to gaining access to certain functionalities of the Service, we may require you to set up a username and password (“Passwords”) as set forth in the account registration procedures provided to you or posted on the Website. You agree to comply with any procedures specified by CoderPad from time to time regarding obtaining and updating Passwords for the Website and the Service. You agree to assume sole responsibility for the security of Passwords used by you. Accounts are subject to cancellation or suspension by CoderPad at any time, including upon the misuse of the account or breach of these Terms. You agree that you will use your best efforts to prevent any third party from obtaining your Password, and you shall inform CoderPad immediately of any actual or potential unauthorized access to a Password or to the Website and/or the Service.
Subscriber’s Obligations & Responsibilities

CoderPad Intellectual Property

All rights therein are expressly reserved by CoderPad, and no rights are granted to you other than that limited right to access and use the Service on the terms set forth in these Terms.

Subscriber retains all rights, title and interest in the Subscriber Data, including all related intellectual property rights, input into, transmitted through, or stored by Subscriber within CoderPad.
We reserve the right to monitor Subscriber Data and to remove or disable content that we, in our sole discretion, determine to be illegal, harmful, offensive, creating liability for CoderPad or its service providers, or otherwise in violation of these Terms or CoderPad operating policies. Without limiting the foregoing, CoderPad does not assume any obligation to perform such monitoring, and CoderPad does not make any representations or guarantees regarding content provided by other users of the Service.
We, at our expense, shall defend you and your officers, directors and employees (“Subscriber Indemnified Parties”) against any claim made or brought against any Subscriber Indemnified Party by a third party alleging that the Service as provided to you for use in accordance with these Terms infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party, and shall pay any damages finally awarded by a court or agreed to by you (with CoderPad’s consent) in a settlement with respect to such claim. The foregoing indemnity applies only if you have paid for a CoderPad account; it does not apply to Subscribers who have a free account or a trial account.
You, at your expense, shall indemnify, hold harmless and (if so requested by CoderPad) defend us and our directors, officers, employees, affiliates, partners, suppliers, agents, contractors and licensors, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents and employees (the “CoderPad Indemnified Parties”) from and against any claim, proceeding, loss, damage, fine, penalty, interest and expense (including, without limitation, fees for attorneys and other professional advisors) arising out of or in connection with the following: (1) your access of use of the Website or the Service; (2) your breach of these Terms; (3) any Subscriber Data or other content you provide to CoderPad or transmit through or store on the Website or the Service; (4) any activity in which you engage on or through the Website or the Service; or (5) your violation of any law or the rights of a third party, including (a) use of the Service to conduct interviews in a discriminatory or otherwise illegal manner, or (b) the infringement by you of any intellectual property or misappropriation of any proprietary right or trade secret of any person or entity. These obligations will survive any termination of these Terms.
Each party agrees to use reasonable efforts to maintain the secrecy and confidentiality of Confidential Information of the other party and to only use such Confidential Information as anticipated under these Terms. Confidential Information shall include the following: (i) any information clearly marked as confidential at the time of disclosure, and (ii) any intellectual property provided by CoderPad in the performance of the Service. The provisions of this section shall not apply to information that: (i) is disclosed or available to the public; (ii) is otherwise in the public domain at the time of disclosure or subsequently becomes part of the public domain through no fault of the receiving party; (iii) is already known to the receiving party without an obligation of confidentiality; (iv) is approved for release in writing by the disclosing party; or (v) the receiving party is compelled to disclose or deliver in response to a law, regulation, or governmental or court order (to the least extent necessary to comply with such order), provided that receiving party notifies the disclosing party promptly (if permitted under the order) upon receiving such order to give the disclosing party the opportunity to contest such order and cooperates in the contest action (at the disclosing party’s expense) if requested and permitted under the order.
Disclaimers; Limitation of Liability
Each party hereby represents and warrants to the other that it has the necessary authority to enter into and perform its obligations under these Terms, and without the consent of any third party or breach of any contract or agreement with a third party, that they have the necessary authority to enter these Terms, and that they shall comply with all laws applicable to the performance, use and receipt of the Service.
You agree and understand that the Service is only a tool that assists you in conducting interviews. CoderPad does not independently confirm the identity of any individual whom a Subscriber interviews through use of the Service. CoderPad does not evaluate any candidates interviewed by Subscribers using the Service, nor does CoderPad provide any guidance on the suitability of such candidates for employment or other engagement by Subscribers or any third party.
You agree and understand that the Service and all information, content, materials, products (including software) and other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the Service are provided by CoderPad on an “as is” and “as available” basis, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by CoderPad. CoderPad makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the operation of the Service, or the information, content, materials, products (including software) or other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the Service, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by CoderPad. CoderPad, its affiliates, their respective employees, members, shareholders, agents, third party content providers and licensors, do not warrant that the Service will be uninterrupted or error free; nor does CoderPad make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from use of the service, or as to the accuracy, reliability or content of any information provided through the Service.
In addition, CoderPad makes no representation nor does it warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for any third party applications (or the content thereof), user content, devices or any other product or service advertised, promoted or offered by a third party on or through the Service or any hyperlinked website and CoderPad is not responsible or liable for any transaction between you and third party providers of the foregoing. You expressly agree that your use of the Service is at your sole risk.
You agree that your sole and exclusive remedy for any problems or dissatisfaction with the Service is to stop using the Service. You agree that CoderPad has no obligation or liability arising from or related to third party content and services made available through or in connection with the Service, and while your relationship with such third party content and services may be governed by separate agreements with such third parties, your sole and exclusive remedy, as with respect to CoderPad, for any problems or dissatisfaction with third party content and services, is to stop using any such third party content and services.
To the fullest extent permissible by law, CoderPad disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose. CoderPad does not warrant that the Service, information, content, materials, products (including software) or other services included on or otherwise made available to you through the Service, CoderPad’s servers or electronic communications sent from CoderPad are free of viruses or other harmful components.
IN NO EVENT WILL (A) CODERPAD OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR SUBSCRIBER’S ACCESS AND USE OF THE WEBSITE AND THE SERVICE, OR (B) CODERPAD’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY (TOGETHER WITH ALL OF ITS AFFILIATES) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR SUBSCRIBER’S ACCESS AND USE OF THE WEBSITE AND THE SERVICE (REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUAL INCIDENTS GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY) EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY SUBSCRIBER HEREUNDER FOR THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRECEDING THE FIRST INCIDENT OUT OF WHICH THE LIABILITY AROSE. THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER REMAINING REMEDIES ARE DEEMED TO FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
YOUR SOLE AND ALTERNATIVE REMEDY IF THE ABOVE STATED LIMITATIONS ARE FOUND TO FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE SHALL BE PROVEN DIRECT DAMAGES IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $100. BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, CODERPAD’S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THE FOREGOING SHALL NOT LIMIT CODERPAD’S LIABILITY FOR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
