The Client may not license, sublicense, sell, resell, transfer, assign, distribute, or otherwise commercially exploit or make available to any third party the Services or the content provided by or on behalf of Smilon through the Services (the content) in any way, except as permitted by the Terms.

3. User Accounts/Personal Info: In the course of using the Services, the Client may be required to provide Smilon personally identifiable information, including contact information, username, and password (“Credentials”). Smilon handles such information with the utmost attention, care, and security. Nonetheless, Client, not Smilon, shall be responsible for maintaining and protecting the Credentials in connection with the Services.

The details and obligations of each party are enumerated in a separate Business Associate Agreement which both parties agree to uphold.

7. Researching and recommending the best strategies for presenting services.

8. Offering promotional features for increased visibility.

13.1. Patient Booking Commitment for the PBG Package

14. Commitments from Smilon LLC

14.1.1 Guarantee: In the event the Client doesn’t achieve the designated number of new patient bookings through Google (including Ads and Organic), Smilon LLC pledges to reimburse the full marketing fee of that month, not counting the Ad Spend. These patients will be documented via the website contact form and phone interactions. Smilon LLC will deliver a roster of patients booked by the 10th of the subsequent month.

14.1.2 Quota Definition: The exact number of patients to be booked is specified in the mutual agreement between the Client and Smilon LLC.

14.1.3 Ad Spend Obligations: The Client agrees to a monthly ad expenditure on Google Ads, either $750 USD or $1,000 CAD, with a leeway of $200. Failure to adhere to this means Smilon LLC’s Money-Back Guarantee becomes non-operational. Additionally, Smilon LLC won’t return the Advertising Expenditure if the primary guarantee isn’t satisfied.

15. Clarifications and Engagement Terms

15.1 Dispute Resolution: For any disagreements regarding the number of patients recorded, the Client must raise it via Asana or email by the conclusion of the next month.

15.2 Communication Guidelines: Ignoring 3 or more inbound calls during operational hours nullifies the Money-Back Guarantee, yet payment is still mandatory.

15.3 Patient Type: This Guarantee focuses solely on new patients. Current ones aren’t part of the set quota.

15.4 Metrics for Appointments: Even if patients do not attend, online bookings or those who don’t turn up still add to the patient quota.

15.5 Telephonic Procedures: The Client should ascertain during calls if patients are new or existing. If not, Smilon LLC will assume the patient as ‘new’, unless stated otherwise. Exemptions are noted in relation to the Google Paid Number.

15.6 Technological Hurdles: Tech-related complications on the Client’s side won’t modify the patient’s count for the quota.

15.7 Special Terms: Conditions revolving around office shutdowns, the availability of slots, online conversations, and the onboarding stage must be followed as originally noted.

16. Client’s Acknowledgment

16.1 Social Media Discretion: Smilon LLC is entrusted with discretion over the Client’s social media activities.

16.2 Digital Responsibilities: The Client relinquishes the right to hold Smilon LLC liable for potential reputational risks on social media. In return, Smilon LLC ensures prompt attention to genuine concerns.

16.3 Collaboration Essentials: Prompt delivery of essential documents, rights, and relevant information is crucial for seamless operations.

16.4 Ownership Rights: Campaigns spanning platforms like Google, Bing, and Facebook are proprietary to Smilon LLC.

16.6 Act of God: Smilon LLC is excused from liabilities related to events beyond its influence.

16.7 Obligations & Rights: Both entities should adhere to the responsibilities and rights as discussed in the latter segment of the clause.

17. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

Our platform integrates various payment services for user convenience. Before utilizing these, we strongly advise you to acquaint yourself with their respective terms. Any third-party delivery option you choose will have its terms, which should be reviewed in detail.

Our integration with Google Maps and its API offers users the ability to view members store locations, fetch directions, and ascertain travel durations. By leveraging our services, you’re inherently agreeing to Google Maps API Terms of Service ([LINK TO GOOGLE MAPS API TOS]).

18. ID VERIFICATION AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Retailers or their delivery providers are responsible for verifying your age and ID upon delivery. For the safety of all parties involved, strict verification measures are in place. If a delivery cannot be completed due to reasons such as a failed age verification, additional fees might be applicable.

19. RETAILER RIGHTS

Retailers retain the right to refuse, adjust, or cancel orders for various reasons. If adjustments or substitutions are made, users will be notified, and their final charges will be adjusted accordingly.

Retailers also reserve the right to refuse delivery if they deem the transaction to be unsafe or inappropriate. Refused deliveries may result in additional charges.

20. COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

We pride ourselves on fostering a respectful and positive community for all users of our Services. As such, we require users to comply with the following rules:

Our Services must not be used for any unlawful or fraudulent purposes. This includes, but is not limited to, unauthorized access to other user accounts or personal data.

Impersonation of any person or entity, or falsely claiming an affiliation with a person or entity, is strictly prohibited.

Interfering with, disrupting, or trying to exploit any aspect of the Services is not allowed.

Please be aware that violation of these rules may lead to your access to our Services being restricted or terminated at our discretion.

21. ASSOCIATED TERMS AND CONDITIONS

These terms operate alongside the terms and conditions of Smilon ‘s holding company, GROWITH, INC. (“Hold Co”). It’s essential to acquaint yourself with Hold Co’s policies and terms in tandem with this document as both sets are applicable.

22. AGE AND USAGE RESTRICTIONS

Our services cater to a wide demographic, but users must be a minimum of age limit years to access them. For alcohol-related orders, adherence to local legal drinking age laws is compulsory, with valid ID verification at pickup or delivery.

Individual members store owners, based on their discretion, set the minimum order amount and age limit. Thus, it varies from one establishment to another. Smilonassumes no liability for these variations.

23. MEMBERSHIP AND FEES

While membership fees vary, they will always adhere to the stipulations in the pricing section. All membership fees, along with any other charges, follow the pricing guidelines. The nature of the tools and services offered determines the pricing, with detailed breakdowns available in relevant sections.

24. THIRD-PARTY SHIPPING AND DELIVERIES

For any third-party delivery, such as DoorDash, their specific terms, conditions, and policies apply. Smilon is exempt from any responsibilities related to third-party shipping and deliveries.

25. BILLING

Billing alterations can be made on your Billing Page within your Smilon account. You grant Smilon the authority to continue charging your Authorized Payment Method for any due fees throughout your Subscription Term and until all outstanding amounts are settled. All payments are non-cancellable, and fees paid are non-refundable, unless explicitly specified in this agreement. All dues are to be settled in advance throughout the Subscription Term.

26. PAYMENT AND REFUND POLICY

Your orders facilitated through our Services will be charged directly from the selected payment method linked to your Smilon account. By placing an order, you authorize Smilon to initiate a charge or debit on your designated payment method, including credit cards or other approved facilities, for the total amount of your order, including any applicable fees and taxes.

For orders placed through our integrated Marketplace feature, Smilon may impose an additional fee, the “Marketplace Diner Fee,” which may vary based on the specific order.

It is your responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your account password. Any activity or charges incurred under your account, as defined by the associated password, will be your responsibility. This liability extends even after the termination of this Agreement.

For any inquiries regarding transactions on your statement, we invite you to reach out to our dedicated customer service team via the “Contact Us” section of our Website.

All refund requests will be handled in accordance with the refund policies of the members store from which you ordered. If you contact Smilonseeking a refund, we are unable to process any refund without the express approval from the respective members store. We will, however, make reasonable efforts to request and secure refunds when appropriate. In instances where a full refund is approved for an order placed on our Marketplace, the refund will include the Marketplace Diner Fee. However, in cases of partial refunds, the Marketplace Diner Fee will not be included.

At Smilon , we prioritize the security of our customers’ payment information. We adhere to the strictest standards of data protection and are compliant with the most current version of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and other relevant laws, rules, and regulations.

27. SMILONCUSTOMER MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM

We offer a Customer Membership Program that allows you to enjoy exclusive benefits at participating members store locations. Upon signing up for the program on our Platform and paying an annual fee (the “Customer Membership Fee”), you’ll be entitled to discounts on your Smilonorders from participating members store locations.

Please be aware that not all members stores or members store locations choose to participate in our Customer Membership Program. To enjoy discounts from specific members stores, a Customer Membership Fee must be paid on a per-location basis.

28. DELIVERY AND CURBSIDE PICKUP

Smilon Services collaborates with a diverse range of members stores, some of which may not cater to every location. If our services are not yet available in your area, please let us know. We are continuously broadening our horizons, and we encourage you to create an account to stay updated.

Within the United States, Smilon collaborates with partner delivery companies to fulfill your orders. If you are not present at the designated delivery address at the time of delivery, the package will be left at your doorstep, or if applicable, with the doorman or at the delivery center, and the corresponding charges will be levied to your account. The person receiving the delivery at the designated address will be conclusively presumed to be authorized to accept it. In situations of inclement weather, your order will be delivered as soon as feasible.

As an alternative to home delivery, some members stores in the Smilon network offer curbside pickup. If you opt for this service, your order will be brought to your car at the chosen members store location. Please note that curbside pickup services are managed by the individual members stores, not Smilonor any delivery partner. All terms and conditions pertaining to delivery orders also apply to curbside pickup orders.

If you have chosen Curbside Pickup, you are required to inform the members store of your arrival through the Smilonapp. The members store may ask for certain details about your vehicle, such as your license plate number or car model. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for details on how this information is collected and processed.

PLEASE NOTE: SMILON , NOT BEING THE MEMBERS STORE OR THE DELIVERY SERVICE, PROVIDES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND IN RELATION TO DELIVERY OR CURBSIDE PICKUP SERVICES AND DISCLAIMS ANY SUCH WARRANTIES THAT MAY OTHERWISE EXIST.

29. PAYMENT AND REFUND POLICY

Your orders processed via our Services will be billed directly from the chosen payment method associated with your Smilonaccount. By making an order, you empower Smilonto initiate a charge or debit on your specified payment method, encompassing credit cards or other approved methods, for the cumulative amount of your order, inclusive of any applicable charges and taxes.

Regarding the membership fees, charges will be as highlighted in the pricing section. All payment obligations are non-cancellable and all amounts paid are non-refundable, except when explicitly mentioned in this Agreement.

All refund matters will align with the refund policies of the members store you ordered from. Smilonis not directly accountable for refunds; it will be managed by the specific members stores, delivery partner, or any associated third-party users as applicable. Nevertheless, we will undertake reasonable efforts to facilitate and acquire refunds when deemed suitable. Refunds will exclude any Marketplace Diner Fee in instances of partial refunds. However, full refunds, when sanctioned, will encompass the Marketplace Diner Fee.

At Smilon , customers’ payment information security is of paramount importance. We strictly abide by the latest data protection standards, compliant with the current Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and other pertinent laws, rules, and regulations.

30. ACCOUNT REGISTRATION AND SECURITY

During the registration process, we will ask you to create an account, which will include a unique username, password, and potentially additional information that will assist in verifying your identity in the future. It is your responsibility to provide accurate, current, and complete information during account creation. Each username and associated password are strictly for individual user access.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO LITIGATE YOUR CLAIM(S) IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL. DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final, subject to a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The costs of the arbitration will be shared equally by the parties, unless prohibited by law. Each party will be responsible for their own attorneys’ fees. The arbitration proceeding will take place in a mutually agreed location, failing which, in a location determined by the arbitrator. A court of competent jurisdiction in the location of the arbitration will have the authority to enter judgment on the arbitrator’s decision and award. Either party may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction concerning matters related to intellectual property rights. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither you nor Smilon will elect to arbitrate any claim, and instead, claims shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction in the location of the arbitration, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

B) Class Action Waiver

You agree and acknowledge that any claim or dispute in any arbitration or proceeding shall be brought on an individual basis only, not as a class action or collective action, and there is no right or authority for any dispute or claim to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. The interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of the Class Action Waiver can only be determined by a court and not an arbitrator.

49. INDEMNIFICATION

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Smilon, its officers, agents, partners, and employees from and against any loss, damage, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Services, breach of these Terms of Service, or breach of your representations and warranties pursuant to these Terms of Service. Smilon reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate, at your expense, with our defense of such claims.
