This document contains very important information regarding your rights and obligations, as well as conditions, limitations, and exclusions that might apply to you. Please read it carefully.
Welcome to WicWac Inc.’s (“WicWac”, “we”, “our”, “us”) Ecosystem Rules (the “Ecosystem Rules”). The Ecosystem Rules describe what you can expect from us and what we expect from you when becoming a member (“you” or “User”) by creating an account, accessing and using WicWac’s website located at https://www.wicwac.com (the “Website”), and/or when you when you download, install, access, or use the WicWac mobile application.
We may amend these Ecosystem Rules at any time by posting the amended terms on our Website. The amended Ecosystem Rules shall be effective automatically upon being posted on our Website. Your continued use of the Our Ecosystem will be deemed your agreement to the amended Ecosystem Rules. A notice of any material amendment to the Ecosystem Rules shall be posted on the Website for one (1) week following such amendment.
If you do not qualify in accordance with this Section 1, or do not agree to the Ecosystem Rules, please do not use Our Ecosystem. We may refuse access and use of Our Ecosystem to anyone or limit a User’s use of Our Ecosystem at any time, in our sole discretion.
To access and use Our Ecosystem (as defined in Section 3) you acknowledge and agree that: (i) you are legally able to make binding contracts under the applicable law; (ii) you are within the geographic region of Canada but not in the Province of Quebec or the Province of Manitoba (where Our Ecosystem is currently not offered); (iii) that you will only create one login account (an “Account”), which will be in your real individual or legal entity name; and, (iv) you agree to these Ecosystem Rules. Without limiting the foregoing, Our Ecosystem is not available to minors or to any other person or entity otherwise restricted under applicable law.
In addition, if you are a User who becomes a service provider in Our Ecosystem (a “Vendor”) you acknowledge and agree that you operate a business with a valid business tax number(s) required under applicable law, that you will adhere to all applicable laws in the delivery of your services and operation of your business, and that you hold all insurances, accreditations, credentials, certifications, permits and licenses, etc. required under applicable law, to provide the services you promote and sell (“Credentials”) using Our Ecosystem, and you acknowledge and agree to provide proof of any such Credentials upon request by us and/or a potential Customer.
2. Your Account
As between you and others, your Account belongs to you. You agree to: (1) try to choose a strong and secure password; (2) keep your password secure and confidential and not disclose to or share your password with any third parties or use your password for any unauthorized purpose; (3) not transfer any part of your Account (e.g., connections, groups); and, (4) at all times be in compliance with applicable law.

3. Our Ecosystem
WicWac facilitates an electronic commerce venue on our Website and/or the WicWac mobile application for Users as: (a) Vendor(s), including by allowing you to digitize your business to advertise, quote, accept payments and interact, and/or (b) customer(s) of Vendors (each a “Customer”), including by allowing you to search an online directory of Vendors and to seek a Vendor who you may offer jobs to and pay and interact with (collectively, “Our Ecosystem”).
WicWac is not involved in the actual transaction between Users. As a result, WicWac has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items or services advertised, the accuracy of the listings, the ability of Vendors to sell and/or provide their services or the ability of Customers to provide work.
WicWac cannot and does not control whether Vendors will complete the services they offer, what the Vendors undertake they will perform, and/or the Vendor’s Credentials or services that the Vendors warrant to provide. WicWac cannot and does not control whether Customers will provide the work they have committed to provide.
Please note that there are risks of dealing with people acting under false pretense. WicWac expects that you will use caution, diligence and common sense when using Our Ecosystem. Our technology allows Vendors to upload copies of their Credentials, but Customers are fully responsible for verifying all such Credentials. Our technology also establishes a chat feature whereby the Users can request any information from other Users that, apart from a Vendor’s Credentials pursuant to Section 1, will be provided at the disclosing Users’ discretion.
Joining WicWac is, at present, free. However:
WicWac’s License Fees to the Vendor:
(a) Vendor agrees to pay WicWac a software license fee in exchange for the access and use of Our Ecosystem in accordance with WicWac’s fees schedule located at https://www.wicwac.com/fee-schedule which is incorporated here by reference into these Ecosystem Rules (“Fees Schedule”) (and each fee within the Fees Schedule shall be a “License Fee”);"
(b) In our sole discretion, we may increase or decrease the amount of any License Fees payable by a Vendor to us upon posting a notice of the amended Fees Schedule on https://www.wicwac.com/fee-schedule. We may add, delete or change some or all of Our Ecosystem at any time, including but not limited to charging additional fees for a given service, giving discounts or altering the methods for calculating the fees payable to WicWac.
Vendor’s Fees to the Customer:
(a) Customer agrees to pay all the related fees and taxes in the relevant Vendor quote(s) that Customer accepts using Our Ecosystem;"
(b) Until accepted by a Customer using Our Ecosystem, all prices, discounts, and promotions posted in the Vendor’s quotes using Our Ecosystem are subject to change without notice;"
(c) The Vendor will ensure that: (i) the price charged by Vendors for their services will be the price listed in the Vendor’s quote at the time the quote is accepted by the Customer using Our Ecosystem, subject to the terms of any promotions or discounts, if any, that may be applicable; (ii) all prices must be stated in Canadian dollars; (iii) the price, applicable taxes, and currency charged will be clearly stated before a Customer accepts a Vendor’s quote; and, any price increases shall not apply to quotes that have been accepted by Customers using Our Ecosystem and shall only apply to additional Vendor quotes at the Vendor’s sole discretion. All such taxes and charges will be added to Customer’s total price and will be itemized in Customer’s quote provided by the Vendor;"
(d) Customers acknowledge that Vendor’s advertised prices on Our Ecosystem will not include applicable taxes;"
The currency of any fees payable to WicWac or a Vendor by a User shall at all times be in Canadian dollars.
We strive to display accurate fee and price information; however, we may, on occasion, make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions related to pricing and availability (and you agree that there shall be no liability to us for any such errors). We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time.
Vendors are responsible for collecting and paying any and all taxes, which may include Goods and Services Tax, Harmonized Sales Tax, Provincial Sales Tax, Retail Sales Tax, Quebec Service Tax, income tax (and Vendor’s acknowledges and understands that the only way we can determine what taxes are applicable is from the address that the Vendor enters in Our Ecosystem when the Account is registered or updated) and any payment whatever which WicWac may be or become bound to make to any person as a result of the operation of any enactment relating to taxation and all penalties, charges and interest relating to any claim or assessment for taxation levied, assessed or imposed by governmental authorities and other agencies or bodies having lawful authority irrespective of whether the liability for such taxation or other payment falls on WicWac as a primary obligation or as a secondary obligation on account of any failure by any other person to discharge a liability to taxation or make any such other payment and any amount claimed by any person from WicWac pursuant to a statutory right of recovery following an assessment being made on such person and taxes of whatever description levied or leviable by any authority applicable to a transaction performed by using Our Ecosystem.
6. Payment Terms & Refunds
While we help facilitate payment for Vendor’s services by the Payment Method (as defined below), it is the Vendor’s sole responsibility to set up the digital wallet with the third party payment provider where money(ies) paid to the Vendor shall be deposited into and ultimately transferred by the third party payment provider to the bank account that Vendor is solely responsible for designating. The Vendor acknowledges that they are the merchant on record and shall be the merchant in the descriptor profile in the onboarding screen of Our Ecosystem. Vendor is solely responsible for complying with any related third party processing terms and conditions as well as defining the descriptor in the system to be Vendor’s company’s legal name and/or trade name. For clarity, Our Ecosystem simply enables the Vendor to easily set up their third party provider merchant account, and the third party payment provider is responsible for processing Customer payments (e.g., deducting the WicWac License Fee Vendor owed to WicWac and then paying the remaining amount owed by Customer to the Vendor. If you are a Customer you acknowledge and agree that a pre-authorised payment (which is automatically initiated using Our Ecosystem and the Vendors third party payment provider) for one hundred percent (100%) of the subtotal amount (excluding taxes and tips related to that amount) must be received from a Customer before any acceptance of a Vendor quote is legally binding. All Customer payments will be pre-authorised upon Customer accepting a Vendor’s quote using Our Ecosystem and BEFORE the services of the Vendor can be performed. The amount pre-authorised is held until the Customer confirms receipt of the services and acceptance (or rejection) by the Customer of same using Our Ecosystem.
Customer’s payment(s) to Vendor(s), and Vendor’s payment of fees to WicWac, will be released by the third party payment processor in in accordance with the third party payment processor’s terms and conditions (e.g., Stripe takes approx. seven (7) calendar days or they may have options to pay out quicker in exchange for a fee) after confirmation by the Customer using Our Ecosystem of satisfactory delivery of the related services. Payments will be made through the third party payment provider.
Our Ecosystem accepts payment from Customer for the following payment cards only for all payments: https://stripe.com/en-ca/payments/features#cards (“Payment Method”), however, WicWac does not guarantee the availability of any Payment Method at any moment and WicWac may add, remove or suspend any payment method temporarily or permanently at WicWac’s sole discretion.
If you are a Customer, when you pay using your Payment Method, you acknowledge and agree that:
(i) the payment information (e.g., credit card, etc.) information you supply is true, correct, and complete;"
(ii) you are duly authorized to use such payment method for the purchase;
(iii) charges incurred by you will be honoured by your bank or credit card company;
(iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the quoted prices you accept using our Ecosystem, including without limitation all applicable taxes, if any; and,
(v) you authorize Vendor to charge your credit card or bank account for one hundred percent (105%) of the subtotal amount quoted by the Vendor (excluding taxes and tips related to that amount) and further authorize the use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to such third party for such purposes.
UNLESS APPLICABLE LAW STATES OTHERWISE: (A) VENDORS ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT LICENSE FEES, OTHER FEES AND ANY APPLICABLE TAXES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND (B) CUSTOMERS ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT VENDORS (AND NOT WICWAC) ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CUSTOMER REFUNDS RELATED TO THE SERVICES PERFORMED BY THE VENDOR.
