Candex is a collaboration tool where users can create activities for communication and file sharing, and they can add briefings to those activities to process payments and track business relationships. Users can create internal or private activities, and invite others to participate from inside or outside their company. In cross organizational activities, users can share information about payments and business relationships within their own organization (“Organization”, or “Company”). We reserve the right to change, suspend, improve or discontinue any aspect, feature or capability of the Service, temporarily or permanently, at any time.

Candex works in all countries but in certain countries, as listed on www.candex.com/countries, people or companies buying goods or services ("Buyers") may use Candex as a Managed Service Provider (“MSP”), where Buyers make payments through Candex ("Payments") intended for the people or companies selling them goods or services ("Sellers"). As an MSP, Candex provides centralized billing and invoicing, secure collaboration and file sharing, and data processing and reporting services that meet stringent regulatory and privacy requirements.
Payments on Candex must be agreed by both Buyers and Sellers. Sellers submit the total amount due for a Payment through Our website, including details of the goods or services delivered with supporting documentation. When the Buyer accepts a Payment from a Seller, the Buyer shall be invoiced by and make payment to Candex for the total of the Payment and Candex will be invoiced by and make payment to the Seller for some portion of the Payment ("Subcontractor Fee") which is the total Payment less a Candex processing fee ("Candex Fee"). The Candex Fee can vary and is always clearly shown on Our website when payments are requested and accepted.
Where Candex is used as an MSP, both Buyer and Seller acknowledge that:
- Seller is an independent subcontractor to Candex and in order to provide its services, Candex is an intended third-party beneficiary of any agreement made directly between Buyer and Seller or agreed electronically between Buyer and Seller through Our website.
- Candex will transfer Subcontractor Fees to Sellers within 3 business days of receiving the Payment from Buyer. To receive a Subcontractor Fee, Seller must submit an invoice to Candex for the Payment (including any applicable taxes) and submit to Candex any documentation required by law to complete the disbursement.
- When a Buyer makes a Payment to Candex, it releases the Buyer from any obligation to make that payment directly to the Seller and Candex incurs an immediate obligation to pay Seller a corresponding Subcontractor Fee.
- Candex is not liable to Buyer for any refunds or other type of guarantee which are agreed between the Buyer and Seller. And Candex is not liable to pay Seller any Subcontractor Fee until it receive funds from the Buyer for a corresponding Payment.
- Buyers and Sellers shall be solely liable for any taxes required by law (including value added taxes and withholding taxes) imposed or levied by any applicable jurisdiction with regard to buying and selling of services and use of the website.
Candex can refuse to process any Payments for any reason or no reason at all. If we refuse to process a payment, then the Seller will need to invoice the Buyer directly.
