Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully before using the BizRun.com website and/or ui.BizRun.com website (collectively, the “Websites”) operated by BizRun, LLC (“BizRun”, “the Company”, “us”, “we”, or “our”), including any service or material we provide on the Website (together with the Websites, the “Services”).

Compliance with Law
Notwithstanding our provision of payroll processing, time-keeping & attendance services, recruiting & applicant tracking, or other employment-related services, you are solely responsible for compliance with applicable laws, including, but not limited to, labor, employment, and tax laws. For example, your account Administrators are responsible for compliance with applicable minimum-wage laws, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and local unemployment and workers’ compensation laws, for filing tax returns, and for the timely payment of employee payroll taxes. No product offered by BizRun is intended to be a legal compliance tool or to give legal or tax advice on any matter.
The Payroll Service does not include calculation of deductions or taxes other than those that apply only to payroll, nor does it include calculation or reporting of penalties or interest on delinquent tax payments. BizRun does not serve in the capacity of either the preparer or the third party designee with respect to federal, state, or local tax forms, payments or any communications with tax authorities.
Limited Warranty for Payroll Service
We may utilize the services of a third party to provide Payroll Services. You hereby acknowledge and agree to the use of such third party. As used throughout this section, “Payroll Service” shall include payroll services provided directly by us or by such third-party provider.
We warrant to you the accuracy of payroll tax calculations on each pay stub and tax filing forms prepared using the Payroll Service, subject to the following terms and conditions. We will pay all government penalties and interest assessed against you due solely to calculation errors made by the Payroll Service. This warranty does not apply to any assessments, penalties or interest resulting from, among other things:
- Administrators’ use of the Payroll Service to process payroll data for which it is not appropriate,
- Administrators’ failure to make tax payments and filings in the manner and on the schedule recommended by the Payroll Service,
- Administrators’ failure to enter on the Payroll Service Website timely and accurate compensation information for the employer’s business employees,
- Administrators’ use of the Payroll Service to prepare pay stubs, tax payments, or tax filings based in whole or in part on payroll or tax payment information that you (or your clients) calculated or entered incorrectly, or
- Administrators’ failure to file an amended return or make an additional payment to avoid or reduce your (or their) penalty or interest after you (or they) have received notice from the government or the Payroll Service that you (or they) should do so.
In general, the Payroll Service calculates payroll taxes based on the assumption that wages are subject to all payroll taxes applicable in the indicated geographical area. Payroll Service guides you to make tax payments in full when due. We do not warrant that the Payroll Service will minimize payroll taxes automatically. [If you do not elect to use electronic payments for your federal or state liabilities, liability payments must be sent manually to the correct agency in a timely manner.]
If you believe you are entitled to payment under this warranty, please notify us in writing, as soon as you learn of the mistake and in no event later than 15 days after the assessment is made. You must include a copy of the government notice. By claiming payment, you and your clients authorize the Payroll Service to obtain and review any data files that may be in its possession or control in order to evaluate your claim and agree to provide assistance and additional information as reasonably requested by the Payroll Service. You and/or your clients remain responsible for paying any additional tax liability you or they may owe. You or your clients are also responsible for paying any penalties and interest that has been assessed until your claim has been evaluated. If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for any additional interest assessed. This warranty is for your benefit only and is not transferable, and will be null and void if you breach any terms or conditions of this Agreement.
If a penalty is assessed because of inaccuracy in tax calculations, the Payroll Service may file a request of abatement. In those circumstances you and your clients agree to cooperate with the Payroll Service on such requests.
Getting paper copies
At any time, you may request from us a paper copy of any record provided or made available electronically to you by us. You will have the ability to download and print documents we send to you through the system during and immediately after the signing session and, if you have an active system account, you may access the documents via the Documents tab on the Personal Information form. Otherwise, if you wish for us to send you paper copies of any such documents from our office to you, you will be charged a $1.00 per-page fee. You may request delivery of such paper copies from us by following the procedure described below.
Withdrawing your consent
If you decide to receive forms from us electronically, you may at any time change your mind and tell us that thereafter you want to receive required forms only in paper format. The process by which you must inform us of your decision to receive future notices and disclosure in paper format and withdraw your consent to receive forms electronically is described below.
Consequences of changing your mind
If you elect to receive required forms only in paper format, it will slow the speed at which we can complete certain steps in transactions with you and delivering services to you because we will need first to send the required notices or disclosures to you in paper format, and then wait until we receive back from you your acknowledgment of your receipt of such paper notices or disclosures. Further, you will no longer be able to use the system to receive required notices and consents electronically from us or to sign electronically documents from us.
All forms will be sent to you electronically
Unless you tell us otherwise in accordance with the procedures described herein, we will provide electronically to you through the system all required notices, disclosures, authorizations, acknowledgements, and other documents that are required to be provided or made available to you during the course of our relationship with you. To reduce the chance of you inadvertently not receiving any notice or disclosure, we prefer to provide all of the required forms to you by the same method and to the same address that you have given us. Thus, you can receive all the disclosures and notices electronically or in paper format through the paper mail delivery system. If you do not agree with this process, please let us know as described below. Please also see the paragraph immediately above that describes the consequences of your electing not to receive delivery of the forms electronically from us.
How to contact us:
You may contact us to let us know of your changes as to how we may contact you electronically, to request paper copies of certain information from us, and to withdraw your prior consent to receive forms electronically as follows:
To contact us by email send messages to: firstname.lastname@example.org
To advise us of your new email address:
To let us know of a change in your email address where we should send forms electronically to you, you must send an email message to us at email@example.com and in the body of the email you must state: your previous email address and your new email address. We do not require any other information from you to change your email address.
If you have an active system account, you or your system administrator may update it with your new email address using the Contact tab on the Personal Information form.
To request paper copies from us
To request delivery from us of paper copies of the forms previously provided by us to you electronically, you must send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and in the body of the email you must state your email address, full name, mailing address, and telephone number. We will bill you for any fees at that time, if any.
To withdraw your consent with us
To inform us that you no longer wish to receive future forms in electronic format you may send us an email to email@example.com and in the body of this email you must state your email, full name, mailing address, and telephone number. We do not need any other information from you to withdraw consent. The consequences of your withdrawing consent for online documents will be that transactions may take a longer time to process.
Required hardware and software
The minimum system requirements for using the system may change over time. The current system requirements are a computer, tablet or smartphone running the most recent version of Google’s Chrome browser.
Acknowledging your access and consent to receive and sign documents electronically
To confirm to us that you can access this information electronically, which will be similar to other electronic forms that we will provide to you, please confirm that you have read this ERSD, and (i) that you are able to print on paper or electronically save this ERSD for your future reference and access; or (ii) that you are able to email this ERSD to an email address where you will be able to print on paper or save it for your future reference and access. Further, if you consent to receiving forms exclusively in electronic format as described herein, then select the check-box next to “I agree to use electronic records and signatures” before clicking “Electronically Sign”, “Continue”, “Submit”, or “Send” within the system.
By selecting the check-box next to “I agree to use electronic records and signatures”, you confirm that:
- You can access and read this Electronic Record and Signature Disclosure; and
- You can print on paper this Electronic Record and Signature Disclosure, or save or send this Electronic Record and Disclosure to a location where you can print it, for future reference and access; and
- Until or unless you notify us as described above, you consent to receive exclusively through electronic means all notices, disclosures, authorizations, acknowledgements, and other documents that are required to be provided or made available to you by us during the course of your relationship with us.
We may update the content on the Websites from time to time, but its content is not necessarily complete or up to date. Any of the material on the Websites may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.
If the Websites contain links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your convenience only. This includes links contained in advertisements, including banner advertisements and sponsored links. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources, and accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. If you decide to access any of the third party websites linked from the Websites, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of use for such websites.
The owner of the Websites is based in the State of Colorado in the United States. We provide the Services for use only by persons located in the United States. We make no claims that the Services are accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Access to the Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Services from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
We may terminate or suspend access to the Services immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, without limitation, if you breach the Terms.
All provisions of the Terms which by their nature shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any legal suit, action or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms or the Services shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Colorado, in each case located in the City and County of Denver, although we retain the right to bring any suit, action or proceeding against you for breach of these Terms in your country of residence or any other relevant country. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding our Services, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between you and us regarding the Services.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.
By continuing to access or use our Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Services.
THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY WARRANTIES WHICH CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
[Except to the extent of the limited warranty described above,] the entire liability of BizRun for any reason shall be limited with respect to any User to the aggregate amount of service fees paid by such User to BizRun during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the date on which the claim accrued. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, BizRun is not liable for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages (including damages for loss of business, loss of profits or investment, or the like), whether based on breach of contract, breach of warranty, tort (including negligence), product liability or otherwise, even if such person has been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if a remedy set forth in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose. As some states do not allow the limitation and/or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
The limitations of damages or liability set forth in this Agreement are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between BizRun and you. You acknowledge and agree that BizRun would not be able to provide the Services on an economic basis without such limitations.
You agree to indemnify and hold BizRun, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners and licensors (collectively, the “BizRun Parties”) harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of: (a) your content or (b) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. BizRun reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter requiring indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with BizRun in asserting any available defenses. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive your access or use of the Websites.
