Terms and conditions Healthy Workers
Last updated: March 2019
Welcome at Healthy Workers B.V (“Healthy Workers”). Healthy Workers has developed a cloud-based workplace data tool (“Software as a Service; SaaS; Software”) which measures the performance of workplaces (in terms of space, amenities and services and well-being of workers) – and subsequent the impact of workplace adjustments. The insights generated are used to make quantified decisions on managing adaptive physical spaces where people thrive.
Healthy Workers improves spaces primarily by giving workplace Enablers real time insights into how buildings, systems & services are catering to the people that rely on them. The Healthy Workers SaaS combines (non-personal) data regarding environmental factors (e.g. light, sound, CO2, temperature) measured by “Sensors”, with (personal) data as provided by employees on the basis of questionnaires and employee feedback.
These terms and conditions (the “Terms”) apply to the relationship between Healthy Workers and its customers, which group consists of both workplace Enablers (“Enabler-Customer(s)”) as well as the respective employees (“Employee- Customer(s)”), for any use of the website healthyworkers.nl (the “Website”), the web-application (the “Web-App”) and any other parts of the Software offered by Healthy Workers. Healthy Workers offers the Software, including all information, tools and Services, under the condition that both the Enabler-Customer as well as the Employee-Customer accepts these Terms. Enabler- Customer and Employee-Customer will jointly be referred to as (“Customer(s)”).
- Agreement: the services agreement which enters into force between Healthy Workers and the Customer, including any amendment or supplement to it.
