Please read carefully the following terms and conditions (“Terms”) and our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into these Terms. These Terms govern your access to and use of the Site, CareZone Services and Collective Content (defined below), and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and CareZone.

Key Content-related Terms

“Content” means text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, information or other materials.

“CareZone Content” means Content that CareZone makes available through the CareZone Services including any Content licensed from a third party, but excluding Member Content.

“Member” means a person who completes CareZone’s account registration process, as described under the “Account Registration” section below.

“Member Content” means Content that a Member posts, uploads, publishes, submits or transmits to be made available through the CareZone Services.

“Collective Content” means, collectively, CareZone Content and Member Content.

We understand that content related to the care of children, parents, loved ones, other third parties and is sensitive and private in nature. If you choose to share access to a beloved profile with any third party via the CareZone services, please note that such third party will be able to access, view, share, distribute and download the content contained in such beloved profile, without restriction, and will also be able to upload content to the beloved profile that can be accessed, viewed, shared, distributed and downloaded within and from such beloved profile. Accordingly, we recommend that you protect your private and sensitive information and consider carefully which third parties you permit to access your beloved profiles.

Please note that you, and not CareZone, are responsible for maintaining and protecting your member content. CareZone will not be liable to you for any loss or corruption of your member content, including, but not limited to, any content contained in beloved profiles, or for any costs or expenses associated with backing up or restoring any of your member content. In addition, the CareZone services are not intended to provide medical information or replace the advice of a healthcare professional. Any content posted via the CareZone services should be designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a member and his or her existing physician or healthcare professional. All members are responsible for monitoring the member content uploaded or added to their beloved profiles, whether such member content is uploaded by the member or by third parties.

Certain areas of the Site (and your access to or use of certain aspects of the CareZone Services or Collective Content) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the Site, CareZone Services or Collective Content, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Site, CareZone Services or Collective Content, as applicable.

You acknowledge and agree that, by accessing or using the CareZone services, or by downloading, uploading or posting any content from or on the site or through the CareZone services, you are indicating that you have read, and that you understand and agree to be bound by, these terms, whether or not you have registered via the site.

Dispute Resolution

You and CareZone agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the CareZone Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and CareZone are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and CareZone otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available from their web site or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.

Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration and a separate form for California residents.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and CareZone otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and CareZone submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. 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 having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. CareZone will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.

Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, CareZone will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).

Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if CareZone changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to support@carezone.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of CareZone’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and CareZone in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

General

The failure of CareZone to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of CareZone. 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. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
