I. Community Weaver License Agreement

Please read this full License Agreement (“Agreement”) carefully before clicking the "I Agree” button and using the Community Weaver online timebanking software and hosting (“Community Weaver”) provided by the Time Dollar Institute Inc., (doing business as TimeBanks.Org -- previously TimeBanks USA or TBUSA). By clicking the “I Agree” button or by otherwise using Community Weaver to create, administer, or manage a timebank, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. This licensee agreement replaces the previous Community Weaver licensee agreement and goes into effect on November 7, 2020.


II. PREAMBLE

This Agreement is made between the Time Dollar Institute Inc. (dba TimeBanks.Org -previously TimeBanks USA or TBUSA), a nonprofit corporation exempt from U.S. income taxation under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, located at: 5500 39th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20015, USA, and the CW Licensee (Licensee) as named below.

Whereas the mission of TimeBanks.Org is to apply time as a currency to build local exchange networks that draw on untapped community assets and foster caring, respect, and justice.

Whereas TimeBanks.Org and the CW Licensee will share the Basic Rule of timebanking that one hour of service equals one-time credit, regardless of the service provided.

Whereas TimeBanks.Org and the CW Licensee will share the Core Values of Timebanking (See Appendix A) and seek to advance their implementation.

Whereas TimeBanks.Org and CW Licensee desire for use of Community Weaver to:

(a) develop timebanking programs and services,

(b) serve the needs of timebanks, their programs and communities, and

(c) encourage and foster cooperation towards the mission and core values of timebanking.

Now, therefore, based on mutual consideration, the parties agree as follows:

III. LICENSE TO USE Community Weaver SOFTWARE ON TimeBanks.ORG SERVERS

TimeBanks.Org grants a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-divisible, non-transferable, non-assignable license to CW Licensee for use of Community Weaver web-based software as installed on TimeBanks.Org servers, strictly in accord with the terms of this agreement.

IV. TERM

The Term of this Agreement shall be for one year commencing on the effective date set forth. The term continues thereafter until either revoked by TBUSA or surrendered by the CW Licensee, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement for revocation and surrender.


V. RESTRICTIONS

You agree not to and you will not permit others to license, sell, rent, lease, assign, distribute, transmit, host, outsource, disclose or otherwise commercially exploit the Community Weaver software or make the Community Weaver software available to any third party except by express agreement with TimeBanks.Org and under separate license.

VI. MODIFICATIONS TO COMMUNITY WEAVER

TimeBanks.Org reserves the right to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Community Weaver software or any service to which it connects with, without liability to you.

VII. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES

(a) THE Community Weaver SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS, AS AVAILABLE" AND WITH ALL FAULTS AND DEFECTS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER Community Weaver APPLICABLE LAW, TimeBanks.Org, ON ITS OWN BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF ITS AFFILIATES AND ITS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE LICENSORS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE Community Weaver SOFTWARE, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE. WITHOUT LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, TimeBanks.Org PROVIDES NO WARRANTY OR UNDERTAKING, AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND THAT THE Community Weaver SOFTWARE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULTS, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, Community Weaver SOFTWARES, SYSTEMS OR SERVICES, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, MEET ANY PERFORMANCE OR RELIABILITY STANDARDS OR BE ERROR FREE OR THAT ANY ERRORS OR DEFECTS CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED.

(b) WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, NEITHER TimeBanks.Org NOR ANY TimeBanks.Org PROVIDER MAKES ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED: (I) AS TO THE OPERATION OR AVAILABILITY OF THE Community Weaver SOFTWARE, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, AND MATERIALS OR PRODUCTS INCLUDED THEREON; (II) THAT THE Community Weaver SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE; (III) AS TO THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR CURRENCY OF ANY INFORMATION OR CONTENT PROVIDED THROUGH THE Community Weaver SOFTWARE; OR (IV) THAT THE Community Weaver SOFTWARE, ITS SERVERS, THE CONTENT, OR E-MAILS SENT FROM OR ON BEHALF OF TimeBanks.Org ARE FREE OF VIRUSES, SCRIPTS, TROJAN HORSES, WORMS, MALWARE, TIMEBOMBS OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

(c) SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF OR LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATIONS ON THE APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

(d) You agree that TimeBanks.Org assumes no responsibility for any content you submit, upload, create or make available through the Community Weaver Software.

(e) TimeBanks.Org is not liable for the acts or omissions of its contractors, vendors, and service providers.

(f) Refund Policy: No refunds of fee to launch after purchase of license to launch and use Community Weaver software.


VIII. MIGRATING AND MERGING TIMEBANKS

Migrating Timebanks to Community Weaver: A prospective CW Licensee whose timebank is using alternative timebanking software may request a transfer of its user data from its existing Timebanking software to Community Weaver. In such cases, TimeBanks.Org will need to determine the cost of making such a transfer and will provide the prospective CW Licensee with a cost assessment. If the choice is made to go forward, the licensee agrees to pay the cost and will be invoiced for the amount assessed. For migrated timebanks, the date when their timebank was first created will determine the creation date for the CW timebank.

Merging Community Weaver Timebanks: If paid in full, a CW Licensee may merge with another CW Licensee’s timebank. In such case, there is a cost for the merger. TimeBanks.Org will provide a reasonable cost assessment for the merger to the CW Licensees. If your current CW timebank has a balance due to TimeBanks.Org, the balance must be settled. For mergers, the date when the first CW was activated will determine the start-up date for the merged timebank.

All terms of this license will apply to licensees who have transferred from other timebanking software platforms, including the applicable licensee fees as provided in Appendix C.

If your Community Weaver closes: The CW Licensee has two-weeks access to download their timebank’s data.

IX. LICENSE FEES

You are not only a change maker in your community, but your fees help run Community Weaver. These costs include server software and website hosting fees, server storage space, server maintenance, regular data backups and security updates to server-wide software, technical support, ongoing development of Community Weaver in response to industry standards and user requests and requirements, and, last but not least, technical and administrative support. The average annual cost of these services for the years 2014-2020 has been $93,610.00 per year. (See: Appendix B)

To ensure the sustainability of Community Weaver, TimeBanks.Org therefore retains the discretion to charge for the set-up and launch of new timebanks on Community Weaver and for supplying services that relate to the provision and use of Community Weaver. See Appendix C for the structure of fees. Start-up options and the fee schedule for ongoing timebanks will be posted on the TimeBanks.Org Action Hub portal for Licensees (“Action Hub”) and on additional sites that TimeBanks.Org may choose. The fee schedule posted at the time of application for a new timebank (or at the time of transfer from an alternative timebanking software platform) will be operative.

Ensuring that the contact information for the Licensee is current is the responsibility of each Licensee. TBTimeBanks.OrgSA will not be held responsible if notification is not received by the Licensee because the Licensee’s contact information as requested by TimeBanks.Org is incorrect or out of date.


X. NON-PAYMENT AND OVERDUE FEES

Up-to-date payment of fees by fee-paying CW Licensees for use of Community Weaver as supplied by TimeBanks.Org is an expression of the mutual benefit of the parties in achieving the spread of timebanking to expand individual and community well-being and capacity. Therefore, late or non-payment of fees will be viewed by TimeBanks.Org as a failure by the CW Licensee to meet its obligations in furtherance of the shared objective that this Agreement supports. In the case of economic hardship, TimeBanks.Org may choose to engage with the Licensee in shared efforts to raise the funds needed, but only if it is determined that the Licensee is making a good faith effort to raise the funds needed for payment. Otherwise, failure to make payment may result in revocation of this Agreement and of the license to use Community Weaver.

If payment has not been made by the due date, TimeBanks.Org will send a reminder notice with an additional 10% late fee based on the base amount to the CW Licensee or its representative and post a reminder on the CW landing page. TimeBanks.Org will give (1) one additional month, or (30) thirty days, for payment. If payment has not been received by the end of that additional month, the CW Licensee’s Community Weaver site and data will be taken offline unless some other agreement is made between the parties in relation to the non-payment in question.

A CW Licensee’s data and Community Weaver site, if taken offline for non-payment, will be reactivated with a $25.00 activation fee. If no payment is forthcoming, this License will be revoked and this Agreement between the parties terminated. Upon termination or revocation of this Agreement, CW Licensee shall have no further rights to use Community Weaver until such time as payment is secured.


XI.SUBSIDIARY RELATIONSHIPS

TBUSA and CW Licensee may cooperate with third-party organizations to achieve their respective objectives, but they shall not thereby, directly, or indirectly, circumvent the intent of this Agreement.

Appendix A: Core Values of Timebanking

(Exact Wording May Vary)


Assets: We are all assets. Everyone has something to contribute.


Work: Some work is beyond price. Work must be redefined to value whatever it takes to raise healthy children, build strong families, revitalize neighborhoods, make democracy work, advance social justice, and make the planet sustainable. That kind of work needs to be honored, recorded and rewarded.


Reciprocity: Helping works better as a two-way street. The question: How can I help you? Needs to change so we ask: “How can we help each other build the world we both will live in?”


Social Networks: We need each other. People helping each other reweave communities of support, strength and trust. Community is built upon sinking roots, building trust, creating networks that are built on mutual respect and commitment.


Respect: Respect demands accountability. The voices of all must be heard and heeded so as to promote social justices and compel accountability.

Fees are assessed on timebanks, not on individual members.

Member count is as follows: the number of members shown Stats" display on your timebank’s Community Weaver home page, minus two (2): Admin coordinator and Community Fund. The member number displayed in Community Weaver for your timebank does not include “applying” members or accounts that are disabled.

NOTE: The first year for a new timebank is $79.00 dollars. This covers the timebank’s first year of hosting, resources, and technical support. The above schedules will apply beginning with their first anniversary.

Effective January 2021, TimeBanks.Org may post a new fee structure at any time but will notify, at least 1 month prior to the next billing invoice. The notification will be sent to all Community Weaver Licensees using contact with the information listed on Action Hub at the time of notice.



Appendix D: Fee Schedule

(as of December 21, 2020)


For those that choose monthly installments, TimeBanks.Org will provide a minimum of 1 month, prior to due date to make payment. For those that choose the annual schedule, TimeBanks.Org will provide a minimum of 1 month prior to the due date to make payment.

TimeBanks.Org will the send the invoice based on the number of activated members the CW timebank has on the date of the invoice with the payment due 30 days after the invoice date. If the CW Licensee received an invoice and it is based on an inaccurate member count, TimeBanks.Org will adjust the invoice.

Timebanks that use one instance of Community Weaver will be treated as one timebank. Start-up timebanks pay only a start-up fee in the first year. The starting date for timebanks is established when a timebank URL is activated and will be unchanged by signing the new license agreement.

It is important for Community Weaver users to understand where and how their license fees are used. Here are the average annual expenses that TimeBanks.Org covers to keep Community Weaver up and running for all timebanks and their members. Please review Appendix B: Annual TimeBanks.Org Expenses for Community Weaver.
