THIS SERVICES AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is entered into by and between Head of Security, LLC (“HS”), a Delaware limited liability company with a principal place of business at 332 S. Michigan Ave, Suite 1032-L487, Chicago Illinois, 60604 and you (the “Customer”) with a principal place of business at (see address in Client profile) (collectively, “the Parties”) as of the date the “Customer” signs up as a new Client or the date you first use, book and/or request services (the “Effective Date”).
Customer acknowledges and agrees that the business of HS is competitive, that HS invests substantial resources in locating, collaborating with and presenting Security Personnel to HS’s customers, and that the loss of the relationships that HS has built with its customers and Security Personnel would cause immediate, immeasurable, and irreparable harm, loss, and damage to HS not adequately compensable by a monetary award. Accordingly, during the term of this Agreement and for a period of 1 (one) year after the date upon which this Agreement is terminated, Customer agrees not to directly or indirectly solicit or hire any Security Personnel: with whom Customer became affiliated through HS and/or; who have provided/are scheduled to provide security services to Customer through HS’s performance of the Services hereunder. Should Client violate the terms of this Paragraph, Customer agrees to pay HS liquidated damages in the amount of five thousand dollars ($5,000) per violation.
During the period commencing on the date shown on the applicable SOW as the first date Service Provider is to provide services to Customer, and continuing during the term of that Engagement, Customer will keep in full force an effect, at its sole expense, the following insurance coverages:
To the fullest extent permitted by law, Customer will defend, protect, hold harmless and indemnify HS, and HS’s respective officers, directors, partners, employees and agents, from and against any and all liability, loss, claims, demands, suits, costs, penalties, fines, fees and expenses (including actual fees and expenses of attorneys, expert witnesses, and other consultants) by whomsoever brought or alleged, and regardless of the legal theories upon which premised, including, but not limited to those actually or allegedly arising of bodily injury to, or sickness or death of, any person or property damage or destruction (including loss of use), which may be imposed upon or asserted against HS, allegedly or actually arising out of or resulting from the services provided by an HS Service Provider to any Customer, including, without limitation, any breach of contract or negligent act or omission by Service Provider or any of its employees, agents, or subcontractors.
Customer’s indemnity will include indemnity with respect to claims alleging or involving joint or comparative negligence. Customer’s indemnity will not extend to liability resulting from the sole negligent act, sole omission, or sole misconduct of HS or Service Provider, except with respect to liability allegedly resulting from HS’s negligently having agreed to contract with, retain or otherwise become or remain associated with Service Provider. In no event will HS be liable to Customer for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental or punitive damages, including lost profits, even if HS has been advised of the possibility of such damages. If, notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement, HS is found to be liable to Customer for any damage or loss which arises out of or is in any way connected with the Services, HS’s liability shall in no event exceed the greater of (i) the total of any fees paid by Customer to HS with respect to the Services paid for during the six months prior to the date of the initial claim made by Customer against HS, or (2) $1,000.00.
HS DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES CONCERNING THE QUALITY OF THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANY SECURITY SERVICE PROVIDER OR ABOUT THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND ANY SECURITY SERVICE PROVIDER.
CUSTOMER AGREES TO RESOLVE ANY ISSUES, DISPUTES OR CONCERNS WITH A SECURITY SERVICE PROVIDER DIRECTLY WITH THE SECURITY SERVICE PROVIDER AND/OR HIS OR HER DIRECT EMPLOYER, NOT HS.
HS DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
HS DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR THE ACTS, OMISSIONS AND CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY SECURITY SERVICE PROVIDER IN CONNECTION WITH OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES. CUSTOMER HEREBY EXPRESSLY RELEASES HS FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY CONTROVERSIES, CLAIMS, SUITS, INJURIES OR DAMAGES ARISING FROM CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE SERVICES.
Customer shall not make any oral or written statement or other communication that disparages or places HS, any affiliates thereof, the respective principals, officers, directors, employees, investors, partners, managers, members, products or services of HS or any of its affiliates in a false or negative light; provided, however, that nothing herein shall preclude Customer from testifying as required by lawful subpoena or other legal process or making good faith reports to governing regulatory bodies or authorities.
Both HS and any Security Providers provided by HS will act solely as independent contractors in performing the Services, and nothing herein will at any time be construed to create the relationship of employer and employee, principal and agent, partners, or joint venturers between and among Customer, Security Provider and HS. HS shall be solely responsible for the compensation, benefits, contributions and taxes, if any, of its employees, subcontractors and agents.
The failure by any party to insist upon strict adherence to any provision of this Agreement on any occasion shall not be considered a waiver of any right hereunder nor shall it deprive thatparty of the right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that provision or any other provisions of this Agreement.
This Agreement, including any exhibits and any addenda thereto, constitutes the entire agreement between Customer and HS. It supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, representations or agreements, whether oral or written, relating to the Services set forth in this Agreement. This Agreement may be amended only by a written instrument signed by both Parties. The captions in this Agreement are for the convenience of the Parties in identification of the several provisions and shall not constitute a part of this Agreement nor be considered interpretative thereof.
If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the invalidity shall not nullify the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is determined by a court or arbitration panel to be overly broad in duration, geographical coverage or scope, or unenforceable for any other reason, such provision will be narrowed or shortened so that it will be enforced to the fullest extent of the law.
All questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, enforcement, or performance of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to any principles of conflicts of law. With respect to all disputes between the parties hereto, any dispute related to this Agreement or the performance thereof shall be exclusively litigated in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois or the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. HS and Customer freely consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts, each waive any right to argue that personal jurisdiction or venue in these venues is improper, inappropriate or inconvenient, and each party waives any right to assist, participate in, or consent to any such suit, action or proceeding being transferred to or litigated in any other court.
The parties agree that if Customer or HS brings an action to enforce any provision of this Agreement, including any suit by HS seeking injunctive relief to enforce the restrictive covenants set forth herein, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party any and all reasonable costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees incurred to enforce such claim.
The Services provided by HS and described herein are being provided only to Customer and its agents. No other person or entity is, nor is intended to be, a third-party beneficiary under this Agreement. HS is assuming no duty to protect any other persons or entities or their property. HS shall not be liable to any persons not a party to this Agreement for any bodily injuries, including death, or property damage or loss, unless solely caused by HS, nor shall it be liable for indemnity or contribution in favor of any person or entity against whom such a claim is brought.
