1. Our Services
Sagetap provides a platform for Builders (as defined below) to upload and store technology pitches and to hold Sessions (as defined below) with and receive actionable feedback on technology pitches from Sages (as defined below) to assist Builders in more quickly achieving product-market fit. “Builders” are product teams who use our Services to obtain feedback on their technology pitch from Sages to drive future sales. “Sages” are industry-leading technology buyers and end-users who use their expertise to provide feedback on technology pitches to Builders. “Sessions” are recorded video conferences wherein Builders present their technology pitches to Sages and receive feedback on their technology pitches. Sages and Builders are sometimes referred to collectively herein as “Service Users”. The Services only enable connections between Service Users for the fulfillment Sessions. Sagetap is not responsible for the performance or communications of Service Users, nor does it have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of Builders, Sages or Sessions, nor of the integrity, responsibility, competence, qualifications, or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Builders or Sages, or of any ratings provided by Service Users with respect to each other. Sagetap makes no warranties or representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the Sessions requested or services provided by, or the communications of or between, Service Users identified through the Services, whether in public, private, or offline interactions or otherwise howsoever.
