By using this website (the “Site”) or any services provided through this Site, You (“You,” “Your,” or “User”) agree to the following terms and conditions provided by American Platform Services LLC d.b.a. TheRecordXchange (“TRX,” “Us,” “Our,” or “We”). This Agreement between Us and User supersedes all previous written and oral agreements, representations, and warranties. If You do not wish to agree to these terms of service (the “TOS” or “Agreement”), please refrain from using the Site.
TRX operates websites (www.therecordxchange.com* and https://trxchange.com) that provide a platform for the legal transcription industry where individuals and companies needing court reporting, transcription and/or proofreading services can connect with such service providers. TRX facilitates the production of transcripts from courtroom and hearing room proceedings and depositions. TRX allows Users to collaborate on transcription projects and share electronic files required to produce transcripts, and transmit the transcripts.
*Reference to therecordxchange.com and trxchange.com includes all of the TRX related sites, TLDs, and sub-domains including, but not limited to, therecordxchange.net, trxchange.net, app.therecordxchange.net and app.therecordxchange.com.
We offer a variety of services options to suit Your needs. We reserve the right to change Our offerings at any time. Our services may be limited to Users who purchase a subscription.
Our offerings may allow for one account to be used to manage projects and work assignments for multiple people with one “administrator” and multiple “associates” affiliated with one TRX user account. Our services may allow the User to run various reports to track the progress on each project.
Payments for Our subscription and other services are made through Braintree and Recurly. By signing up for a TRX subscription or submitting payment through one of Our websites, You agree to abide by these sites’ terms as well. We will never have access to Your credit card information.
User ConductAll Users are required to abide the following rules of conduct.
We have no obligation to monitor the Site, but We can, and We may remove anything that a User posts for any or no reason. Allowing a User to create a profile on this Site is not an endorsement by TRX of that User’s skills, qualifications, or expected performance. Users are not employees, independent contractors, or agents for TRX.
User Interaction with SiteWe adhere to high expectations of professionalism and confidentiality. For each transcription project, only Users who have been assigned to the project by the Project Owner and who have accepted that assignment, may see and access the collaborative data and comments posted by assigned Users, as well as the files uploaded to and transmitted via TRX related to the project.
When You interact with Us about and/or via this Site, You must provide accurate information about Yourself when such information is required. As the administrators of this Site, We will have access to all information and files.
TRX Subscription Fees and Payments to Third PartiesSome of Our services require a monthly subscription. Please see Our current offerings for subscription rates. Subscriptions can be canceled at any time and refunds are not available.
Your subscription gives You access to Our platform to solicit and procure court reporting, transcription, and/or proofreading services. The party performing the services may require payment for their services. This is separate and in addition to the TRX subscription fee. Depending on Your subscription level, You may have the option to use TRX to send and receive payment for services. Otherwise the parties will make arrangements for payment amongst themselves.
TRX PortalCertain TRX subscriptions may have a personalized portal for use by all Users affiliated with that subscribed User. Each person who has access to the portal will have a unique ID and password and may have access to some or all of the data uploaded to the Site.
We will contact the administrator for the portal if a User is in violation of the Site’s rules. Repeat or ongoing violations of these rule of conduct may result in the termination of the account for that individual/entity or the User’s entire subscription.
File Retention/BackupExcept as described in this paragraph, We reserve the right to delete files uploaded by Users upon the completion of projects. However, unless specifically prohibited from doing so by federal, state or local laws, rules or official policies, We intend to retain Your transcription files indefinitely so long as You remain a valid User. Further, We suggest that You keep an offline copy (i.e. backup) of any and all files You upload to the Site, as well as all in-work and completed transcript files. We are not liable for any damages that result from the removal or loss of any files.
