PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE COVERED DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JUDGE OR JURY TRIALS.
Acknowledgment and Acceptance of Independent Contractor services Agreement
Notwithstanding the previous paragraph or any contrary language in this Agreement, the Arbitration Agreement in Section 9 of this Agreement may not be modified or terminated absent a writing signed(electronically or otherwise) by the Company and You.
You acknowledge that you are able to electronically receive, download, and print this Agreement, any other terms, notices, forms(including IRS Form 1099 - MISC) and any other notices required by, or incorporated into, this Agreement by reference, any amendments to this Agreement, or any other items required by regulation or law.Further, you agree to keep the contact information in your Account current at all times including, but not limited to, your email address, physical address, and phone number.
Use of the application is permitted only by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, you must be at least 18 years old [or the age of legal majority in the jurisdiction in which you work and legally authorized to work in the United States to become a Booster. If you do not meet these criteria, you may not register to become a Booster.
Capitalized terms are defined as set forth below or elsewhere in the Agreement.
1.1 “services” means the services described in a boost.gg request for services by a Booster to a boost.gg Customer.
1.2 “boost.gg request” means a notice provided, through the application, to one or more Boosters, which includes a description of the services to be provided by the Boosters, the time by which the boost.gg request must be completed (the “boost.gg Completion Date”) and the fee associated with the boost.gg request (the “Payment”). An open request is a request for services that has not yet been accepted by a Booster (“Open request”). Boosters can use the application to review open requests and to indicate their availability for open requests. Once a Booster has accepted a boost.gg request pursuant to Section 2, the boost.gg request will become a “boost.gg arrangement”. Each boost.gg arrangement constitutes a new contract between boost.gg and the Booster, and between the Booster and requestor.
1.3 “boost.gg website” or “application” means the software application used by boost.gg in connection with the services.
2.1 Background Checks and Privacy Information. As part of your initial registration with boost.gg, you agree to immediately execute a written consent for a background check. Subject to a satisfactory background check and agreement to the terms herein, you will be eligible to use the boost.gg website to view and accept boost.gg requests. You further agree to complete any ongoing background checks as may be required by boost.gg or a Customer. Failure to complete the initial or ongoing background check processes may result in inability to accept boost.gg requests and/or removal from the boost.gg Platform. Please note that in order to run your background check, boost.gg will ask for your social security number during the onboarding process. We may also share your social security number with our payment vendor, Stripe, in order to verify your payment account to ensure the safety of your account.
2.2 Best Efforts. By registering to become a Booster and accepting an open request, you agree to use your best efforts to perform the boost.gg arrangement such that the services meet the requirements and specifications of the Customer, for whom the open request was created. Once a Booster has accepted a boost.gg request, the open request will no longer be available for performance by other Boosters who received the open request. By accepting an open request, you are entering into a binding legal agreement to provide the services for the Payment specified in the open request. Do not accept an open request unless you are sure that: (1) you understand what you are being asked to deliver; (2) you can perform the services identified in the open request; (3) you can deliver the services in the requested time period; and if required, you can get to and from the Customer’s location. Failure to timely deliver the services consistent with the Customer’s requirements and specifications will constitute a breach, resulting in non-payment. Further, in the event of such a breach, you will be responsible for payment of any additional fees (e.g., rush fees) or costs incurred as a result of your failure to timely complete the open request in accordance with the Customer requirements.
3. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR RELATIONSHIP
Nothing in this Agreement is intended or should be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, or employer-employee relationship between boost.gg and you or between the Customer and you. You will take no position with respect to or on any tax return or application for benefits, or in any proceeding directly or indirectly involving boost.gg that is inconsistent with your being an independent contractor (and not an employee) of boost.gg. You are not the agent of boost.gg or the Customer and you are not authorized, and must not represent to any third party that you are authorized, to make any commitment or otherwise act on behalf of boost.gg or the Customer.
As an independent contractor, you are solely responsible for determining which open requests you will choose to accept and how, when and where you will provide the services under this Agreement.
boost.gg does not restrict the Booster’s right to provide services through other parties, including competitors of the boost.gg website; boost.gg expects the individual performing services as a Booster will provide services for other parties;
Booster acknowledges and represents Booster can earn income from other sources; boost.gg does not guarantee the Booster any minimum amount of boost.gg arrangements;
boost.gg does not provide a performance assessment for Boosters, and does not oversee the actual work or instruct the individual as to how the work will be performed, or the method or process the Booster uses to perform services;
boost.gg does not pay a salary or hourly rate but rather facilitates requestor’s payment of the rate set by the requestor;
boost.gg does not terminate the work during the term of this Agreement unless the Booster violates the terms of this Agreement or fails to produce a result that meets the specifications of the Agreement;
boost.gg does not provide training, tools, equipment, benefits, or expense reimbursement to the Booster;
boost.gg does not dictate the time of performance;
boost.gg does not combine its business operations in any way with the Booster’s business, but instead maintains such operations as separate and distinct. Booster shall have no legal authority to enter into contracts on boost.gg’s behalf or otherwise bind boost.gg in any way.
Booster is responsible for obtaining and maintaining any required registration, licenses, or other authorization necessary for the services Booster renders.
3.1 Benefits and Contributions. You are not entitled to or eligible for any benefits that boost.gg, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or other related entities may make available to its employees, such as group insurance, profit-sharing or retirement benefits. Because you are an independent contractor, boost.gg will not withhold or make payments for social security, make unemployment insurance or disability insurance contributions, or obtain workers’ compensation insurance on your behalf. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, you are reclassified as an employee of boost.gg, or any affiliate of boost.gg (“Affiliate”), by the U.S. Internal Revenue service (“IRS”), the U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”), or any other federal, state or foreign court or agency, you agree that you will not, as the result of such reclassification, be entitled to or eligible for, on either a prospective or retrospective basis, any employee benefits under any plans or programs established or maintained by either the Customer and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or related entities or by boost.gg, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or other related entities.
3.2 Taxes. You are solely responsible for filing all tax returns and submitting all payments as required by any federal, state, local, or foreign tax authority arising from the payment of Payments to you under this Agreement, and you agree to do so in a timely manner. You will comply with all applicable federal, state, local, and foreign laws governing self-employed individuals, including laws requiring the payment of taxes, such as income and employment taxes, and social security, disability and other contributions. To the extent required by the IRS, boost.gg will report the Payments paid to you for services rendered as part of boost.gg arrangements by filing Form 1099-MISC with IRS. You consent to electronic delivery of Form 1099-MISC, if such form is required or filed. You agree to indemnify boost.gg for the cost of any tax liabilities incurred by boost.gg as a result of your failure to pay all applicable taxes in a timely manner.

Payment processing services for Boosters are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of service (collectively, the “Stripe services Agreement”). By agreeing to these terms or continuing to operate as a Booster on Booster, you agree to be bound by the Stripe services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time.

Except for the “Mandatory Binding Individual Arbitration And Class Action Waiver” below, which is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, this Agreement or any claim, cause of action or dispute (“Claim”) arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of in which the Booster resides regardless of your country of origin or where you access boost.gg, and notwithstanding any conflicts of law principles.
9.2 Mandatory Binding Individual Arbitration and Class Action Waiver (“Arbitration Agreement”). The Company and Contractor mutually agree to resolve any justiciable disputes between them exclusively through final and binding arbitration instead of filing a lawsuit in court. This Arbitration Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) and, except as otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement, shall apply to any and all claims arising out of or relating to this Contract, the Contractor’s classification as an independent contractor, Contractor’s provision of services to the Company or its Customers, the payments received by Contractor for providing services to the Company or its Customers, the termination of this Contract, and all other aspects of the Contractor’s relationship with the Company, past, present or future, whether arising under federal, state or local statutory and/or common law, including without limitation harassment, discrimination or retaliation claims and claims arising under or related to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans With Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Family Medical Leave Act, or Fair Labor Standards Act, state statutes or regulations addressing the same or similar subject matters, claims based on a joint employment or misclassification theory, and all other federal or state legal claims arising out of or relating to Contractor’s relationship or the termination of that relationship with the Company. The agreement by Contractor and the Company to mutually arbitrate disputes provides consideration for this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement applies to claims and disputes that the Company may have against Contractor and/or that Contractor may have against the Company, and (1) its affiliates and partners (2) its officers, directors, employees, or agents in their capacity as such or otherwise, and/or (3) all successors and assigns of any of them; any and all of which may enforce this Arbitration Agreement.
The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or alleged waiver of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. However, as stated in the “Class Action Waiver” below, the preceding sentence shall not apply to the clause entitled “Class Action Waiver.”
This Arbitration Agreement does not apply to any claim that may not be arbitrated as provided by an Act of Congress. This Arbitration Agreement also does not apply to Private Attorney General Action claims under California law, which may only be brought in a court of law—not in arbitration.
(a) If either party wishes to initiate arbitration, the initiating party must notify the other party in writing via certified mail, return receipt requested, or hand delivery within the applicable statute of limitations period. This demand for arbitration must include (1) the name and address of the party seeking arbitration, (2) a statement of the legal and factual basis of the claim, and (3) a description of the remedy sought. Any demand for arbitration by Contractor must be delivered to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(b) Class Action Waiver. The Company and Contractor mutually agree that by entering into this Arbitration Agreement , both waive their right to have any dispute or claim brought, heard or arbitrated as a class action and/or collective action, and an arbitrator shall not have any authority to hear or arbitrate any class and/or collective action (“Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this Arbitration Agreement or the AAA Rules, as defined below, any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (1) the dispute is filed as a class and/or collective action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the class or collective action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.
(c) Contractor agrees and acknowledges that entering into this Arbitration Agreement does not change Contractor’s status as an independent contractor in fact and in law, that Contractor is not an employee of the Company or the Company’s Customer and that any disputes in this regard shall be subject to arbitration as provided in this Arbitration Agreement.
(d) Any arbitration shall be governed by the American Arbitration Association Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), except as follows:
(1) The arbitration shall be heard by one arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitrator shall be a licensed attorney or retired judge with experience in the law underlying the dispute.
(2) If the parties cannot otherwise agree on a location for the arbitration, the arbitration shall take place in the county in which Contractor performed his contractual duties for The Company.
(3) Unless applicable law provides otherwise, as determined by the Arbitrator, the parties agree that the Company shall pay all of the Arbitrator’s fees and costs.
(4) The Arbitrator may issue orders (including subpoenas to third parties) allowing the parties to conduct discovery sufficient to allow each party to prepare that party’s claims and/or defenses, taking into consideration that arbitration is designed to be a speedy and efficient method for resolving disputes.
(5) Except as provided in the Class Action Waiver, the Arbitrator may award all remedies to which a party is entitled under applicable law and which would otherwise be available in a court of law, but shall not be empowered to award any remedies that would not have been available in a court of law for the claims presented in arbitration. The Arbitrator shall apply the state or federal substantive law, or both, as is applicable.
(6) The Arbitrator may hear motions to dismiss and/or motions for summary judgment and will apply the standards of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure governing such motions.
(7) The Arbitrator’s decision or award shall be in writing with findings of fact and conclusions of law. The award issued by the Arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(8) Either the Company or Contractor may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief on the ground that without such relief the arbitration provided in this paragraph may be rendered ineffectual; provided, however, that all determinations of final relief shall be decided in arbitration, and pursuing the temporary or preliminary injunctive relief shall not constitute a waiver of rights under this agreement to arbitrate.
(e) Regardless of any other terms of this arbitration agreement, claims may be brought before and remedies awarded by an administrative agency (such as the National Labor Relations Board, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or U.S. Department of Labor) if applicable law permits access to such an agency notwithstanding the existence of an agreement to arbitrate governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
(f) The AAA Rules may be found at www.adr.org or by searching for “AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules” using a service such as www.Google.com or www.Bing.com or by asking email@example.com to provide a copy.
(g) This arbitration agreement is the full and complete agreement relating to the formal resolution of disputes covered by this arbitration agreement. Except In addition to as stated with regard to the Class Action Waiver, above, in the event any portion of this arbitration agreement is deemed unenforceable, the remainder of this arbitration agreement will be enforceable. The Arbitration Agreement is a contractual agreement to mutually arbitrate claims; therefore any statements in any Company handbooks or policies that otherwise disclaim contracts do not apply to this Arbitration Agreement. 9.3 Modifications to application. boost.gg reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the application or the service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. However, as stated above in Section 8.2 above, Section 9 (“General Provisions”), which contains the Arbitration Agreement, will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement and/or any modification or termination of the application or the service. You agree that boost.gg shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the application or the services.
Governing Law and Venue. The services Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed, controlled, interpreted, and defined by and under the laws of the State as set forth in the Arbitration provision above, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the law of a different jurisdiction. Customer and Booster hereby expressly consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts or the county in which Customer’s principal place of business is located solely in the event of any lawsuit filed there against Booster by Customer or by Frontline arising from or related to Frontline Payroll services and/or this services Agreement.
Severability. If any provision of the services Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of the services Agreement will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
No Assignment. The services Agreement, and the party’s rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by either party without the other’s prior written consent, and any attempted Job, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. The terms of the services Agreement will be binding upon assignees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer may, without the consent of Booster, assign any rights and obligations under the Payroll.
Waiver. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of the services Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
Execution and Delivery; Binding Effect. The parties will evidence execution and delivery of the services Agreement with the intention of becoming legally bound, by using Frontline Payroll services provided by the application.
