Demandstar Supplemental Terms

In addition to the terms governing your subscription to Demandstar or any other content with which your Demandstar access is provided, the following terms apply to your access to the Demandstar platform and services accessed from Demandstar.com (“DS Site”):

A. BIDWIRE SERVICE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

These terms and conditions govern your use of the Bidwire Service, made available to you through the DS Site. Your use of the Bidwire Service as a supplier constitutes your agreement to all terms and conditions contained below.

1. SUPPLIER INFORMATION AND RESPONSIBILITIES

In order for you to participate in any bid award or other procurement action from any city, county, state or other governmental agency which has entered into an agreement with DemandStar Corporation, Demandstar, or its successors and assigns, as a member of the Demandstar governmental agency network for which you have registered (the “Agencies”), you may be required by the Agencies to provide additional information. Registration with Demandstar does not confer or imply any special consideration to you by the Agencies. The Agencies reserves the right to determine your eligibility to submit bids. It is your responsibility to ensure that the information you submit to the DS Site is current and accurate. Demandstar is not responsible for any information you submit to the Agencies, your activity on the DS Site or for any technical or mechanical problems affecting your use of the DS Site.

2. SERVICES

Upon registration in the DS Site, you will be permitted to access bids for the Agencies. If the bids are available for electronic download then you will be able to download them from the DS Site. We will notify you via email of bids and addenda submitted to us by the Agencies in your subscription that match the commodity codes associated with each bid. It is your responsibility to ensure that your email account remains in good working order.

B. QUOTEWIRE SERVICE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

These terms and conditions govern your use of the Quotewire Service, made available to you through the DS Site. Your use of the Quotewire Service as a buyer constitutes your agreement to all terms and conditions contained below.

1. BUYER OBLIGATIONS

When you submit a quote request via the Quotewire Service, you invite suppliers to submit bids, which are offers to sell goods or services to you which meet the requirements specified in your quote request, including but not limited to price, payment terms, shipping terms, and payment methods. If a participating supplier submits a bid that is acceptable to you, you may accept the supplier’s offer and award that bid to that supplier. When you accept a supplier’s offer and award a bid to a supplier, you agree to accept the requested materials or services from that supplier. You may close a quote request before the specified close date, and you may award or reject a bid before the close date and/or before all bids are received. Although the Quotewire Service allows you to perform these actions, you should understand that it may not be best business practice to do so. Demandstar is not responsible for any information you submit via the DS Site, your activity on the DS Site or for any technical or mechanical problems affecting your use of the Site.

2. SUPPLIER OBLIGATIONS

You may bid on requests for quotes listed on the Quotewire Service only if notified by the Service that you have been selected as a participating supplier, based on the commodity code information submitted by the buyer and you. When you submit a quote, you have extended an irrevocable offer to the buyer to provide the product or services requested on the terms and conditions you state in your quote. Notwithstanding the above, a supplier may revoke any quote after acceptance by the buyer if the quote request included a material inaccuracy or misrepresentation. You understand and agree that the buyer may close the quote request at any time, regardless of the specified close date, and can award or reject a quote at any time before the specified close date. You understand and agree that you are responsible for all applicable taxes and for all costs that are incurred in using the Service. Demandstar may also, in its sole discretion, add or delete fees associated with its Service. If any new fee or charge is applicable, Demandstar will notify you by posting such new fee or charge on the DS Site or by notifying you in writing by email.
