The Rex Industrial Platform offers an online marketplace platform that enables people (“Users,” “you,” “your”) to find manufactured and custom engineered industrial products for design and sale. Users who publish and offer services are “Vendors” and Users who search for, purchase, or use services are “Buyers.” Vendors offer Products (“Products”) and a variety of other services (each Product or service offering, a “Listing”). Some Vendors provide only engineering or design services.
You must register an account to access and use many features of the Rex Industrial Platform, and must keep your account information accurate. By creating an account, you acknowledge and agree that you have read these Terms and you agree to be bound by them. As the provider of the Rex Industrial Platform, Rex Industrial does not own, control, offer or manage any Listings unless expressly noted that Rex Industrial is the Vendor. Rex Industrial is not a party to the contracts concluded directly between Vendors and Buyers unless expressly denoted otherwise in the Listing.
While we work hard to ensure our Users have great experiences using Rex Industrial, we do not and cannot control the conduct of Buyers and Vendors. You acknowledge that Rex Industrial has the right, but does not have any obligation, to monitor the use of the Rex Industrial Platform and verify information provided by our Users. Users acknowledge and agree that Rex Industrial administers its Terms, including decisions about whether and how to apply them to a particular situation, at its sole discretion. Users agree to cooperate with and assist Rex Industrial in good faith, and to provide Rex Industrial with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Rex Industrial with respect to any investigation undertaken by Rex Industrial regarding the use or abuse of the Rex Industrial Platform.
- Searching and Purchasing on Rex Industrial.
1.1 Use of the Platform. The Rex Industrial Platform is intended only for access and use by individuals at least eighteen (18) years old. By accessing or using any of the Rex Industrial Platform, you warrant and represent that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age and with the full authority, right, and capacity to enter into this agreement and abide by all of the terms and conditions of Terms. If you are not at least eighteen (18) years old, you are prohibited from both the access and usage of the Rex Industrial Platform.
1.2 Searching. You can search for Listings by using criteria like the type of Product or service, area of application, materials, quantity and other fields that may now or exist in the future. You can also use filters to refine your search results. Search results are based on their relevance to your search and other criteria. Relevance considers factors like price, availability, reviews, popularity, previous purchases and saved Listings, and more.
1.3 Purchasing. When you purchase Products or services offered in a Listing, you are agreeing to pay all charges for your purchase as set forth on the Listing (the “Listing Price”), applicable fees like Rex Industrial’s service fee, offline fees, taxes, and any other items identified during checkout (collectively, “Total Price”). You are also agreeing that any of our third-party payment processors may charge and collect any security deposit identified during checkout. Additionally, when you purchase a good or service, you are agreeing to abide by any regulatory requirements for said Purchase, for example obtaining the proper permits for installation or construction. When you receive the order confirmation, a contract for the purchase and sale of the Products is formed directly between you and the Vendor.
1.4 Engineering and Customization. Where the Rex Industrial Platform permits a Buyer to buy a Product that requires engineering stamps or approvals or customization, the engineering or accounting firm providing such stamps, approvals or designs is a Vendor to the Buyer. Rex Industrial is expressly not the Vendor or providing professional services of any kind or nature whatsoever to the Buyer in that situation. As between Rex Industrial and the Buyer, Buyer hereby holds harmless, indemnifies and releases Rex Industrial from and against all claims, losses, demands, fines, sanctions and/or damages of any kind or nature whatsoever relating to inadequacy of designs, negligent (or worse) hiring or selection, failure to supervise, malpractice or other claims relating to professional nonfeasance or malfeasance of any kind or nature whatsoever. Buyer agrees and understands that it specifically approves of the selection of the professional engineering or design Vendors when it approves and accepts a Listing and agrees to purchase a Product.
1.5 Requirement to Provide Accurate Information. You are responsible for confirming that you provide accurate and complete specifications for any custom engineered product, and any professional or engineering Vendor is entitled to rely on the information provide to you in connection with the order of any Product. You are responsible for informing the Vendor of any conditions, or other circumstances that may impact the requirements or specifications for a custom engineered Product order.
- Cancellations, Refunds and Order Modifications.
2.1 Cancellations, and Refunds. In general, if as a Buyer, you cancel a reservation, the amount refunded to you is determined by the reservation cancellation policy that applies to that Listing. But, in certain situations, in the sole discretion of Rex Industrial, our Cancellation Policy may take precedence and determine what amount is refunded to you. If the Vendor cancels an order, the amount refunded to you is determined by the reservation cancellation policy that applies to that Listing. If the Listing does not contain a cancellation policy, then our Cancellation Policy set forth below shall apply
2.2 Cancellation Policy. A cancellation is deemed received if and only if submitted through the Rex Industrial Platform cancellation workflow. As used in this Section, the term “refund credit” means a credit equal to the Total Price paid by a Buyer.
- If a Buyers cancels prior to the date of acceptance of the order by a Vendor, the Buyer will receive a full refund of the Listing Price. If a Buyers cancels after an order has been accepted by a Vendor, the Buyer will not be entitled to any refund. Rex Industrial reserves the right but not the obligation to offer a refund credit in lieu of a refund in any of the circumstances described above, including a less than 24 hours’ notice cancellation.
- If the Vendor cancels, the Buyers will receive a full refund of the Listing Price, unless the Listing provides for only a refund credit.
- In the case of inclement weather or other force majeure which requires cancellation of the sale, the Buyers will be entitled to a refund credit, unless the Listing provides otherwise.
2.3 Order Modifications. Buyers and Vendors are responsible for any order modifications they agree to make via the Rex Industrial Platform or direct Rex Industrial customer service to make on their behalf (“Order Modifications”), and agree to pay any additional amounts, fees, or taxes associated with any Order Modification.
- Your Responsibilities and Assumption of Risk.
3.1 Your Responsibilities. You are responsible and liable for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you invite to use your account for the Rex Industrial Platform. For example, this means: (i) you are responsible for the safety and quality of your Products associated with any Listing (or, if applicable, the professional or engineering services), and (ii) you must act with integrity, treat others with respect, and comply with applicable laws at all times. If you are using the Rex Industrial Platform in the course and scope of your employment with an organization, your organization is bound to these Terms.
3.2 Your Assumption of Risk. You acknowledge that many activities and purchases on the Rex Industrial Platform carry inherent risks and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you assume the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Rex Industrial Platform and any Rex Industrial Materials and/or User Content (as defined in Section 5), including your purchase of any Products, participation in any messaging or User-to-User activities, use of any other professional or engineering Service, or any other interaction you have with other Users whether in person or online. This means it is your responsibility to investigate a Listing to determine whether it is suitable for you. For example, Products purchased via Listings may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to obtain the services or purchase the Products using the Rex Industrial Platform. The Rex Industrial Platform is a marketplace connecting Vendors and Buyers, but Users are ultimately interacting independently of each other. Rex Industrial is not responsible for acts, omissions or intentional acts that may give rise to losses or damages between Users.
- Services, Eligibility, User Accounts, Prices and Fees.
4.2 Eligibility.

You may not register more than one account or transfer your account to someone else. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your account credentials and may not disclose your credentials to any third party. You are responsible and liable for activities conducted through your account and must immediately notify Rex Industrial if you suspect that your credentials have been lost, stolen, or your account is otherwise compromised. If and as permitted by applicable law, we may, but have no obligation to (i) ask you to provide identification or other information, (ii) undertake checks designed to help verify your identity or background, (iii) screen you against third-party databases or other sources and request reports from service providers, and (iv) obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations or their local equivalents.

Transaction Fee. Vendor agrees to pay Rex Industrial 12% fee of the Total Price (as defined in the Rex TOU) of any transactions that occur on the Platform or were directed through the Platform to Vendor.
4.5 Fees. Rex Industrial may charge fees (and applicable Taxes) to Vendors and Buyers for use of the Rex Industrial Platform. Except as otherwise provided on the Rex Industrial Platform, service fees are non-refundable. Rex Industrial reserves the right to change the service fees at any time, and will provide Users notice of any fee changes before they become effective. Fee changes will not affect orders made prior to the effective date of the fee change. Fees and other conditions for Users’ access to and use of the Rex Industrial Platform may be governed by the another agreement between a User and Rex Industrial (a “Separate Agreement”), which such Separate Agreement would provide additional or supplemental these Terms, to the extent noted therein.

You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with the use of any User Content or other Non-Rex Industrial Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, usefulness, or legality of such User Content or other Non-Rex Industrial Content. Rex Industrial cannot and does not guarantee any User’s professed identity, including without limitation the identity or nonprofit, tax exempt status of any organization, individual or entity claiming nonprofit status or tax-exempt treatment.

- Governing Law, and Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
15.1 Governing Law. These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding the Rex Industrial Platform and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have had between us regarding the Rex Industrial Platform.
15.2 Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement. The Users hereby agree that any and all disputes, claims or controversies between Users and Rex Industrial, including but not limited to any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be resolved through a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Rex Industrial’s customer service team, and any disputes which are not resolved by mutual agreement shall be resolved by (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You and Rex Industrial each retain the right to seek relief in small claims court as an alternative to arbitration.
15.3 Arbitration Agreement. For purposes of this Arbitration Agreement (“Agreement”) the term “parties” shall include Rex Industrial, and the Users including both Buyers and Vendors (whether the Vendor provides Products or services related to Products). In arbitration, each side in the dispute presents its case, including evidence, to a neutral third party called an “arbitrator,” rather than to a judge or jury. The parties agree that any arbitration shall be conducted before one neutral arbitrator selected by the parties and shall be conducted under the American Arbitration Association Arbitration Rules & Procedures then in effect. The parties agree that this Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1, et seq (“FAA”). The parties also understand and agree that Rex Industrial is engaged in transactions involving interstate commerce.
The arbitration shall take place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The parties are entitled to be represented by their own legal counsel in the arbitration proceeding and agree to maintain the proceedings and the award, including the hearing, as confidential, except as is otherwise required by court order, required by law, or as is necessary to confirm, vacate or enforce the award. The arbitrator shall have the authority to order such discovery by way of deposition, interrogatory, document production, or otherwise, as the arbitrator considers necessary for a full and fair exploration of the issues in dispute, consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration. The arbitrator is authorized to award any remedy or relief available under applicable law that the arbitrator deems just and equitable, including any remedy or relief that would have been available to the parties had the matter been heard in a court. Nothing in this Agreement shall prohibit or limit the parties from seeking provisional remedies, such as injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall have the authority to provide for the award of attorney’s fees if such award is separately authorized by applicable law. The decision of the arbitrator shall be in writing and shall provide the reasons for the award unless the parties agree otherwise. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision is final and binding which means there will be no trial by a judge or jury, or ability to appeal the arbitrator’s decision except as provided by the FAA or analogous state law.
15.4 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Rex Industrial mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or any use of the Rex Industrial Platform, purchase of Products, use or purchase of professional or other services, or any User Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration pursuant to this Agreement. If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Rex Industrial agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
15.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Rex Industrial each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) any claim or cause of action alleging actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack); or (iii) a request for the remedy of public injunctive relief. You and Rex Industrial agree that the remedy of public injunctive relief will proceed after the arbitration of all arbitrable claims, remedies, or causes of action, and will be stayed pending the outcome of the arbitration pursuant to section 3 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
15.6 Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award any relief allowed by law or the AAA Rules, but declaratory or injunctive relief may be awarded only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
15.7 Jury Trial Waiver. You and Rex Industrial acknowledge and intentionally agree that each are waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
15.8 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Rex Industrial acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, each are waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class Users in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative or consolidated proceeding. Unless agreed in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of the waiver contained in this paragraph as to any claim, cause of action or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, will be severed from this agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that a claim, cause of action or requested remedy is severed pursuant to this paragraph, then you agree that the claims, causes of action or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.
15.9 Severability. Except as provided in this Section, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision will be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.
15.10 Changes to Agreement to Arbitrate. If Rex Industrial changes this Section after the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject that change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date the change is effective. Rejecting a new change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any Dispute between you and Rex Industrial (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and Rex Industrial.
15.11 Survival. This Section 15 will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Rex Industrial Platform or terminate your Rex Industrial account.
16.2 Interpreting these Terms. Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms, conditions, policies, guidelines, standards, and in-product disclosures, these Terms (including those items incorporated by reference under Section 16.1) constitute the entire agreement between Rex Industrial and you pertaining to your access to or use of the Rex Industrial Platform and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Rex Industrial and you. These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon anyone other than you and Rex Industrial. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Where the word “will” is used in these Terms it connotes an obligation with the same meaning as “shall.”
16.3 No Waiver. Rex Industrial’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law. A provision of these Terms may be waived only by a written instrument executed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision.
16.4 Assignment. The Terms and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Rex Industrial without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of these Terms shall be void.
16.5 Notice. Unless specified otherwise, any notices or other communications to Users permitted or required under this agreement, will be provided electronically and given by Rex Industrial via email, Rex Industrial Platform notification, messaging service (including SMS and Chat), or any other contact method we enable and you provide. If Notice is by email, it will be provided to the email provided by you with your account information and it is your responsibility to update such account information for any changes.
16.6 Severability. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
16.7 Independence of Relationship. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Rex Industrial as a result of these Terms or use of the Rex Industrial Platform. You further acknowledge that by submitting User Content or other Non-Rex Industrial Content, no confidential, fiduciary, contractually implied or other relationship is created between you and Rex Industrial other than pursuant to these Terms.
16.8 Headings. The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms, and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
16.9 Third-Party Services. The Rex Industrial Platform may contain links to third-party websites, applications, services or resources (“Third-Party Services”) that are subject to different terms and privacy practices. Rex Industrial is not responsible or liable for any aspect of such Third-Party Services and links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement.
16.10 Survival. Sections 5, 6, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 will survive any termination of these Terms.
