A part of the agreement
As customer at Works you accept our General Terms and Conditions, as a binding part of the agreement. This applies regardless of whether you have accepted the agreement in connection with a purchase or if you have accepted the agreement by your use or access to Works™’ products or services.

All agreements are entered with companies, either in sole trader or corporate form. When you register as a customer at Works™, you confirm that you have authorisation to enter into the agreement on behalf of your company.
