8. PAYMENTS AND FEES

A payment will then be made equal to the Job Rate of Pay to the substitute’s account, and a payment will be made to Tagg for any user fees due and owing to Tagg.
a. If a substitute does not show up to provide substitute teaching services for a job he or she has accepted through the Tagg Platform, the School must notify Tagg through the designated functions in the Tagg Platform that the substitute did not provide the substitute teaching services within seven (7) days. Once notified, Tagg will stop payment to the substitute for that job. If a substitute disputes the School’s assertion that they did not provide substitute teaching services on a given period of absence, the School may be asked to provide additional assurances to verify its claim.
(b) The School agrees to pay a fee equal to 25% of the total cost (not including the 1.24% transaction fee described below) for a given job, not to exceed $50, to Tagg for each job that is completed using the Tagg Platform. This fee will be automatically transferred to Tagg by Stripe as part of the process when the School pays a substitute. The rate of pay displayed to substitutes through the Tagg Platform will be the amount determined by the School, which Tagg will use to generate the total cost and calculate the 25% fee.
(c) The School agrees to provide necessary payment information, through Tagg, to Stripe, which is a third party service utilized by the Tagg Platform to facilitate payments between the School and the substitutes and Tagg. The School agrees to maintain a fund balance in its account connected to Stripe that is adequate to cover all payments properly due and owing to the substitutes. The School agrees to pay a fee equal to 1.24% of a given job’s total cost, which includes the rate of pay for the substitute, the 25% Tagg service fee, and the 1.24% transaction fee.
ii. Stripe is currently able to provide statements, settlement batch summaries (types of payments, total sales and credits for specified time frames), transaction summaries (high level overview of successful and unsuccessful transactions), a decline analysis (tracks payment decline rates and notification if anything is out of the ordinary), and an annual 1099-K to substitutes.
(d) Tagg reserves the right to facilitate the payment process described herein utilizing manual invoicing or a company other than Stripe that provides substantially the same services, in its sole discretion. The School agrees to provide reasonable cooperation in ensuring the payment processing is completed, no matter if Stripe or some other method is utilized.
(a) Tagg agrees to maintain, at all times, the following insurance coverage:
i. General Liability. Commercial general liability insurance with a $1,000,000 combined single limit per occurrence;
ii. Umbrella Liability Insurance. $5,000,000 combined single limit per occurrence.
(b) Tagg will provide the School with certificates of this insurance coverage upon request.
(c) Tagg’s insurance will cover Tagg, and will not cover substitutes hired as contractors through the Tagg Platform.
(a) To the extent allowed by law, Tagg hereby agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and protect the School from and against any and all liabilities, claims, forfeitures, suits, penalties, punitive, liquidated, or exemplary damages, fines, losses, causes of action, or voluntary settlement payments, of whatever kind and nature, and the cost and expenses incident thereto (including the costs of defense and settlement and reasonable attorney’s fees) (hereinafter collectively referred to as “claims”) which the School may incur, become responsible for, or pay out as a result of claims connected to the acts, services, conduct or omissions of Tagg, its employees or agents, in connection with this Agreement. Substitutes procured through the Tagg Platform are expressly not employees or agents or acting on behalf of Tagg for purposes of this indemnity, or for any other purpose. Nothing herein should be construed to indemnify the School against any claims, whatsoever, with regards to the classification of substitutes’ work, as employee or independent contractor, in relation to the School, as this remains the sole responsibility and liability of the School.
(b) To the extent allowed by law, the School hereby agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and protect the Tagg from and against any and all liabilities, claims, forfeitures, suits, penalties, punitive, liquidated, or exemplary damages, fines, losses, causes of action, or voluntary settlement payments, of whatever kind and nature, and the cost and expenses incident thereto (including the costs of defense and settlement and reasonable attorney’s fees) (hereinafter collectively referred to as “claims”) which Tagg may incur, become responsible for, or pay out as a result of claims connected to the acts, services, conduct or omissions of the School, its employees or agents, in connection with this Agreement.
(c) Substitutes are independent contractors procured through the Tagg Platform and are not, under this Section or any other, to be considered the employees or agents of Tagg.
(a) THE TAGG SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” TAGG, THROUGH THE TAGG SYSTEM, OFFERS A TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM AND A METHOD FOR SCHOOLS TO OBTAIN SUBSTITUTE TEACHING SERVICES, BUT DOES NOT AND DOES NOT INTEND TO PROVIDE SUCH SERVICES ITSELF OR ACT IN ANY WAY AS A RETAILER OR PROVIDER OF SUBSTITUTE TEACHING SERVICES OR ANY OTHER EDUCATIONAL SERVICE OR PRODUCT.
