Acceptance of the Terms
Overview of Services
Canoa is a managed, two-sided marketplace facilitating transactions between end users (the “Subscribers”) and furniture dealers, manufacturers, resellers, and installers (the “Vendors”). Through its various construction-free configurable solutions (each a “Pop Up Office” and collectively, “Pop Up Offices”), Canoa matches Subscribers with Vendors, where Vendors provide the materials or labor for the selected Pop Up Office.
After contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and paying a one-time onboarding fee, Subscribers will be [provided access to the Pop Up Office feature which allows Subscribers to browse the Pop Up Offices and furniture provided by the Vendors]. After selecting the desired Pop Up Office, Subscribers will pay Canoa an upfront fee to complete purchases on its behalf and in accordance with the selected Pop Up Office. All purchases must be approved by Subscriber prior to purchasing. If you are a Subscriber, please click here for Canoa’s Commercial Terms applicable to Subscribers (the “Subscriber Terms”). If you are a Vendor, please click here for Canoa’s Commercial Terms applicable to Vendors (the “Vendor Terms”).

THE CANOA SUPPLY COMPANY, PBC
SUBSCRIBER COMMERCIAL TERMS
Overview of the Commercial Terms
These “Commercial Terms” apply to our commercial transactions with our Subscribers, including your purchase of our Services for you or your business. You should carefully read through these Commercial Terms to understand your rights and obligations, as these Commercial Terms constitute a contract between you and Canoa or its affiliates from which you are purchasing Services. By purchasing Canoa’s Services, you agree to be legally bound by these Commercial Terms.
Parties You are Contracting With
As we describe in our Terms of Service, if you engage with us for our Services, you will be entering into a contract with us and with one or more of our Vendors, based upon your Pop Up Office selection and your preference for new or used furniture.
Access to Services; Subscribers
To access the Services as a Subscriber, please contact email@example.com with a description of your project. If we, in our sole discretion, determine that you are eligible for our Services, you will receive a proposal for the Services (the “Proposal”), including a one-time onboarding fee (the “Fee”). Once you have accepted the terms of the Proposal and pay the Fee, you will have access to the Pop Up Office designs. Based on your preference for a specific Pop Up Office, Canoa will match you with a Vendor who will assist us in building out your space in accordance with the selected Pop Up Office design. Subscriber will pay Canoa an upfront payment to complete purchases from Vendors on its behalf and in accordance with the selected Pop Up Office. All purchases will be approved by the Subscriber prior to purchasing. If the Subscriber wishes to customize the Pop Up Office, there will be additional customization fees.
In order for us to provide you the best possible Services, you agree to provide us with complete, accurate, and updated information at all times. You agree that all information you submit in accordance with your solicitation of Services is also complete, accurate, and truthful.
If any information is incorrect or outdated, it can lead to errors or delays, for which we will not be responsible.
Storage and Held Orders
If Subscriber requests a delay after the time when Vendor can defer production, the Subscriber will be invoiced for the product when the order is ready for shipment. Vendor may transfer the product to storage, in which case all expenses incurred in connection with storage shall be payable by Subscriber.
Delivery and Installation
Subscriber agrees to keep the job site clean, clear, and free of debris prior to installation. Electric current, heat, hoisting, and/or elevator services shall be available and furnished without charge to Canoa or Vendor. Adequate facilities for off-loading, staging, moving, and handling of product shall be provided by Subscriber. Delivery and installation will be made during normal business hours. Subscriber will be responsible for additional labor costs resulting from overtime work performed at the Subscribers request or resulting from labor or building conditions. If trade regulations or union disputes require onsite tradesman or outside labor to complete the installation, the Subscriber will be responsible for the cost. Product delivered and brought onto the job site shall be inspected and conditionally accepted by the Subscriber. The Subscriber is responsible for the security and safeguarding of the delivered product upon delivery.
In connection with deliveries, Vendor may be required to make delivery in installments. Subscriber agrees that a delay in delivery of any installment shall not relieve it of its obligations to accept remaining deliveries nor its obligations under these Terms of Service and Commercial Terms.
Order Changes, Cancellations, and Terminations
Orders may not be changed or cancelled, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the Vendor. Any changes made to orders may affect delivery dates for which neither Canoa nor Vendor shall be responsible for. Subscriber will additionally be liable for all resultant manufacturer charges, including restocking, for up to and including the total order value. Orders for customized or otherwise special product, orders including Subscriber’s own material, and orders pursuant to expedited delivery programs cannot be cancelled. If the Vendor has created work product on behalf of the Subscriber, the Vendor is hereby not obligated to transfer such work product to Subscriber upon cancellation of orders or Services.
Cancellations by Canoa
We may suspend or terminate your use of the Services as a Subscriber as a result of your fraud or breach of any obligation under these Terms. Such termination or suspension may be immediate and without notice. A breach of these Terms includes, without limitation, the unauthorized copying of content from the Services, unauthorized resale of any Services for commercial purposes, or the unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information (as defined in the Terms of Service) or solicitation of any kind in pursuant to these Commercial Terms or the Terms of Service.
You agree as follows: (i) that accessing the Services for the Company will bring you into close contact with many of the Company’s Representatives, Vendors, members, and third party contacts (each a “Key Business Connection” and, collectively, the “Key Business Connections”); (ii) that the covenants contained herein are reasonable and necessary to protect the Company’s legitimate business interests and its Key Business Connections; (iii) not to solicit, knowingly influence or knowingly entice, any Key Business Connection to cease any business relationship with the Company or any of its respective majority owned subsidiaries, including by directly or indirectly contacting the Key Business Connection to circumvent these Terms. In the event that the Company discovers or believes that you are in breach of this non-solicitation clause, it may terminate Services to you immediately, without any further refund or notice to you.
The Services enable connections between Subscribers and Vendors. Those certain spatial design-related services, including the furnishing of materials and labor, requested by Subscribers through Canoa, which are to be completed by Vendors, are hereinafter referred to as “Vendor Services.” Canoa does not have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any work provided by Vendors or third-party vendors. Canoa makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the Vendor Services requested and provided by Vendors identified through the Services whether in public, private, or offline interactions.
NEITHER CANOA NOR ITS AFFILIATES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SITE OR ANY VENDOR. CANOA AND ITS AFFILIATES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR THE VENDOR SERVICES.
Release for the Vendor Services
The Services are a marketplace for connecting Subscribers and Vendors. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more Vendors, you release and will indemnify and hold harmless Canoa (and our officers, directors, agents, investors, subsidiaries, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
