Vendor - Terms of Use

Effective: October 2020

Welcome to the Prologis Facility Management platform (the “Platform”) operated by Prologis Essentials LLC. (referred to as “Prologis” or “we”, “us” or “our”). By accessing, browsing and using the Platform, you  (“you” or “Vendor”)  acknowledge and agree to have read, understood and agreed to all of the terms and conditions outlined herein. Please therefore read these terms of use (“Terms of Use” or “Terms”) carefully before using the Platform.  If you are a Vendor and you do not agree with these Terms of Use, or if you are unwilling or unable to be bound by them, please do not use the Platform. 

Definitions

Customer means any tenant of Prologis or of a Prologis managed venture.

Customer Services means any Services other than Prologis Services.

Prologis FM Agreement means the agreement entered into between Prologis or one of its affiliates and Vendor in respect of facility management, technical management, facility services and other property related services.

Prologis Services means the services that Prologis is responsible for in its role of the landlord under the terms of its leases with Customers.

Service Agreement means the agreement to be entered into by Customer and Vendor for the supply by Vendor of its Services to Customer.

Services means any facility management, technical management or other property related services provided by Vendors in response to tickets, orders or any other requests for services made by the Customers or by Prologis through the Platform.

Users means the users of the Platform including Vendors, Customers and Prologis personnel.

The Scope of the Platform

The Platform (including its content and infrastructure) is provided and operated by Prologis in order to facilitate our real estate management and technical support. Through the Platform, Customers and Prologis personnel can place tickets, orders and make requests for the Services, and Vendors can reply to such requests. Only Vendors which have entered into the Prologis FM Agreement will be given access to the Platform. Prologis does not charge a fee for the use of the Platform.

The Platform may also be used for the storage of information, documents and other materials relevant to the Services and as a communication tool in respect of the Services.

Operation of the Platform 

  • Account Creation. Vendors and Customers need to create an account to access the Platform. Users must provide accurate, current and complete information during the Platform registration process and keep their account or profile up-to-date at all times. Users must maintain the confidentiality and security of their account and profile credentials and may not disclose such credentials to any third party outside its affiliates. 

 

  • Ticket and offer process. Customers and Prologis personnel can place tickets on the Platform to request specific Services. After the assessment of the ticket by Vendor, an offer is prepared by Vendor and an email notification of the offer is sent to the relevant Customer. Such notification specifies whether the requested Services are Prologis Services or Customer Services and the offer is routed for consideration to Prologis (for Prologis Services) or to Customer (for Customer Services). 

Prologis Services

The rights and obligations of Prologis vis-à-vis Customer in respect of Prologis Services are determined by the provisions of the relevant lease agreement. The rights and obligations of Prologis vis-à-vis Vendor providing Prologis Services are determined by the provisions of Prologis FM Agreement. 

These Terms of Use govern the operation of the Platform only and nothing in these Terms of Use is intended to affect or alter the provisions of such lease agreement or the Prologis FM Agreement. In the event of any contradictions between these Terms of Use and such agreements, the terms of the agreements will prevail.

Customer Services

In respect of Customer Services, the following provisions apply:

  • No Guarantees or Endorsements. Customers are fully responsible for submitting tickets, accepting or rejecting any offers and managing any further interaction with Vendor, including negotiating and signing a Service Agreement and acceptance of the Customer Services. Acceptance of Vendor’s offer by Customer means confirmation by Customer that the services to which the offer relates are Customer Services (and not Prologis Services). Vendors are fully responsible for processing tickets, providing offers to Customer and managing any further interaction with Customer, including negotiating and signing a Service Agreement and providing the Customer Services. We make no guarantees, warranties or representations regarding (i) Users including their identity, background or conduct as may be relevant to the provision of the Customer Services, (ii) the availability, suitability, skills or undertakings of Vendor or the quality or outcome of the work that Vendor may perform if Customer retains their Customer Services, (iii) legality, quality, accuracy and completeness of any Customer Services (and accuracy of their description), offers, acceptance of offers or any information provided by Vendors or Customers through and on the Platform or otherwise. Prologis does not endorse or recommend the Customer Services of any particular Vendor. We do not independently verify their representations about their Customer Services, nor validate any reviews. It is entirely up a Customer to make any order, ticket or request or accept any offer for the Customer Services and enter into a Service Agreement with a Vendor. Neither Vendors nor Customers are employees or agents of Prologis nor is Prologis an agent of a Vendor or a Customer. 

 

  • No Contracting via the Platform. Vendors are solely responsible for their pricing and offering in respect of the Customer Services. Prologis does not guarantee or warrant such pricing. Any responses provided by Vendors via the Platform are not contractually binding offers. In order to form a contractual arrangement with Vendor in respect of the Customer Services, Customer must work directly with such Vendor. Prologis does not perform, and is not responsible for, any of the Customer Services. Rights and obligations of the Users under the Service Agreement are governed by the terms of such agreements and by applicable laws. Prologis is not a party to such Service Agreements. All payments and applicable taxes relating to the Customer Services must be made by Customer to Vendor in accordance with the Service Agreement and any other applicable terms agreed between Vendor and Customer.

 

  • Release from Damages or Claims. Should you have a dispute with respect to any other User in relation to any Service Agreement or the Customer Services or the fees charged in this respect, you must address such dispute with the User directly. Should you escalate any issue in this respect to us, we will communicate the facts relating to your dispute to the relevant User. User hereby agrees to release Prologis (and our officers, directors, shareholders, affiliates, employees and agents or others involved in making available the Platform) from any damages or claims (including consequential and incidental damages) of every kind or nature, suspected and unsuspected, known and unknown, and disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes and dealings between Users.
