E. Provider-Generated Content

Using the Services to generate custom content—including posting pictures or using any Content provided with the Services—does not afford the Provider any right or ownership in that content. The Company retains all rights to any Provider-generated content that is incorporated into the Services.

III. Payment Policies

A. Payment and Charges

The Company charges Customers for consultations and other services from Providers through the Services, utilizing a third-party payment service. Charges are assessed at the scheduled time of the consultation or other service. The Company will receive the full payment from the Customer through a third-party payment service. The Company will retain twenty percent (20%) of the full amount of the payment and issue the remaining eighty-percent (80%) to the Provider, subject to any further provision in this Agreement. The Company will issue payment due to the Provider, on or before the fifteenth (15th) of each month, for the preceding month.

B. Third-Party Payment Services

The Company utilizes third-party payment services (currently, Stripe) to handle payment services. If Customers have any issue with charges, those issues need to be addressed between the Customers and the third-party payment service. The Company is not responsible for the payments or any related disputes.

C. Cancellations

A Customer can cancel a consultation or other service at least 24 hours before the scheduled start time of that consultation or service at no charge. If a Customer cancels a consultation or service less than 24 hours before the scheduled start time, or misses or is late for the scheduled start time for any reason, the Customer will be charged the full amount of the consultation or other service.

D. Refunds

If a Provider cancels less than 24 hours in advance of a consultation or other service,

or is not available for the scheduled start time, upon request by the Customer and verification by the Company, the Company will issue, or have issued, a refund to the Customer. Verification of a Provider’s failure to offer the services is determined in the Company’s sole discretion. The Customer must make a refund request within 5 calendar days of the date and time the consultation or service was scheduled to be eligible for a refund. Where a Provider has already received payment for a refunded consultation or service, the amount of that payment, in the Company’s sole discretion: will be deducted from the subsequent payment(s) to the Provider, or billed to the Provider for repayment to the Company.

E. Provider is not an Employee or Agent of the Company

Provider is not an employee or agent of the Company. Provider is an independent contractor, providing stylist services. The Company exercises no control over the manner or nature of those services. Provider provides those services directly and solely on its own behalf. The Company’s sole relationship with the Provider is for the purpose of providing a neutral platform to connect with Customers and to process payments through that platform. This Agreement, and use of Services, bestows no further access, authority, status, or right to Provider.

F. Tax Consequences

Payments may be subject to taxes or other withholdings. The Company will provide Provider a 1099 tax form, as required by law. The Company will not provide any tax advice to the Provider and no forms or communications from the Company should be considered as such. The Company in no way assumes any responsibility for Provider’s payment of taxes. Provider here assumes all responsibility for calculation and payment of taxes; confirms Provider will consult a qualified professional to assure taxes are paid properly; and waives any liability of or claim against the Company relating to any tax issues or damages in relation. Furthermore, should a tax issue arise—including the failure to pay tax, and including any penalties: first, if possible, Provider agrees to resolve the matter directly and personally; second, if the Company must act, or chooses to act for the sake of expediency in its sole discretion, Provider agrees to reimburse the Company for any payments it makes; and third, in all cases, Provider agrees to indemnify the Company for any expenses, damages, or costs associated with resolving the tax issue, including accountant, attorney, or other professional fees engaged at the Company’s sole discretion. Regardless, the Company reserves, and Provider here grants, the right for the Company to remove, deduct, or otherwise redirect portions of any payment for tax or related purposes in the Company’s sole discretion.

IV. Disclaimers, Waivers, and Indemnification

A. Appropriateness of Content

The Company provides a platform to facilitate contact between Customers and Providers. The Company does not monitor, censor, or otherwise control that contact, or any communications and exchanges relating to it.

As previously set forth in this Agreement, Provider agrees that it will not use the Services and Content to engage in such conduct.

B. No Guarantees, Endorsements, or Investigation

The Company does not provide any guarantees or endorsements of any third-party, Customer, or Provider, or its content or links, provided through the Services. This includes any content or links from advertisers or other third-party vendors. The Company does not investigate or otherwise review any Customer, Provider, or third-party or its content. Provider accepts all risks associated with any Customer, other Provider, or third-party, and its content, links, or related information.

C. Disclaimer of Warranties

All information and services are provided on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement.

Provider waives any claim of damages of any type stemming from lost data, undelivered messages, or any other failing of the Services.

D. Updates and Versions

From time to time, the Company may issue updates to the Services or Content. The Provider understands that these updates may be automatically installed or implemented; that the Provider here consents to such updates and installations without further notice; and should the Provider refrain from utilizing updates, the Services or Content may not operate properly. Furthermore, the Provider has no right or entitlement to any version of the Services or Content.

E. Waiver of Liability

The Company, the Services, and the Content assist Customers to connect with Providers. This limited role does not, and indeed cannot, actively control the way in which Customers and Providers use the content. Providers are responsible for their own conduct, use, decisions, and other consequence and ramifications of their actions.

Provider waives any liability of or claims against the Company for any injuries or damages (including compensatory, punitive, special, or consequential damages) Provider sustains as a result of or associated with using the Services or Content. Provider waives any claim or liability stemming from the negligence of the Company. Provider also waives any liability of the Company based upon the negligence, recklessness, intentional acts, or accidental conduct of its Customers, Providers, or any third party. Provider understands that the Company does not control or investigate its Customers, Providers, or any other third party.

F. Scope of Waiver

Provider understands and agrees the above waiver extends to any claim of any nature or kind, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, regardless of when the claim first existed. This includes waiver of a claim of the type identified under California Civil Code, Section 1542, which provides: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”

G. Indemnification

If the Company is subject to a complaint, demand, mediation, arbitration, litigation, or other pursuit based upon Provider’s conduct relating to or from use of the Services or Content, Provider agrees to indemnify the Company for all costs, expenses, and fees (including attorneys’ fees by the attorneys of the Company’s choice) it expends in defending itself against or otherwise addressing such pursuit. Such conduct or use includes, but is not limited to, Provider’s violation of this Agreement; Provider’s use of the Services or Content; Provider’s interactions with Customers, other Providers, or others; Provider’s use of intellectual property on or through the Services; and any such actions performed by an agent, entity, or representative on Provider’s behalf. Provider agrees to indemnify the Company as soon as the Company incurs the costs, expenses, and fees, whether those are billed by event, or in week, month, or some other interval.

V. Non-Solicitation and Exclusivity of Services

A. Value of Services and Access

Provider acknowledges that the Services are a product of trade secrets, intellectual property, advertising and marketing efforts, and time and expenses all belonging to and paid by the Company.Provider’s access to these Services, and to Customers using the Services, are a product of those valuable efforts, investments, and proprietary processes and property.

B. Consideration

Provider acknowledges that access to the Services is valuable consideration for the provisions in this Agreement, and waives any legal claims of lack of consideration regarding this Agreement or any provision herein.

C. Exclusive Use of the Services

The Company provides its Services to connect Providers with Customers. By using these Services, Provider agrees it will use the Services exclusively for all sessions, appointments, and other work obtained from any Customer who Provider (a) met through the Services, or (b) has contacted or communicated, or currently contacts or communicates, with through the Services. Provider further expressly agrees it will receive all payments from such Customers through the Services, including but not limited to, booking fees and tips.

D. Non-Solicitation

Should Provider no longer use the Services, for the reasons above relating to proprietary property and consideration due through access to valuable Services, Provider agrees not to solicit on its own behalf, or on behalf of or in conjunction with any person or legal entity, any Customers Provider (a) met through the Services, or (b) contacted or communicated with through the Services, for a period of one year.

E. Liquidated Damages

Provider acknowledges that Customers are a primary source of value of the Services. If Provider engages with Customers for the purpose of payment outside the Services and receives such payment, Provider agrees to immediately: inform the Company, and pay the Company a one-time, lump sum payment of $200.00 per Customer. Provider and the Company agree that the damages caused by violation of this provision, when calculated over time, are uncertain and difficult to calculate. Thus, a $200.00 payment is a reasonable estimation based upon the uncertainty of the amount and the inability to calculate it with certainty.

VI. Limitation of Services and Termination
