PLEASE NOTE THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES YOU HAVE WITH US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
We only permit individuals who are at least 18 years old and can form legally binding contracts with us to use Kiddo. If you are under 18 years old and would like to use Kiddo, you can, but only if a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old supervises you. In all cases, the adult would be the user and is responsible for any and all activity.
By using Kiddo, you represent and warrant that you meet all eligibility requirements outlined in these Terms. We reserve the right to refuse to let certain people access or use Kiddo and the right to change our eligibility criteria.
You can only use Kiddo to the extent the laws of your jurisdiction or the United States do not bar you from doing so. Please make sure these Terms are in compliance with all laws, rules, and regulations that apply to you.
If you plan to use Kiddo or any of Kiddo’s software tools for any commercial purposes, i.e. if you are an independent provider of children’s activities, a venue, or other third party (individually a “Provider,” collectively the “Providers”) your use of the Platform is subject to our Business Terms of Service.
Your Account with Kiddo
Creating an Account
On Kiddo, we allow various Providers to post individual activities, semester-long camps, and other children’s activities (each an “Activity” and collectively “Activities”) for you and your child to enjoy. You don’t need to create an account on Kiddo in order to browse through our Activities. However, if you want to view a specific Activity, or sign-up for an Activity through Kiddo, you may need to create an account.
Kiddo powers Providers registration, check-out and payments systems. To book a class, you will be adding your account information to the Provider’s contacts as well as to Kiddo. To place an order on a provider’s site who we partner with, you will be adding your name, email, child’s name, birthdate, address, primary phone, credit card as well as other information requested by the Provider. This information is stored in the Kiddo database. If you use the same account to buy class at another provider within the Kiddo eco-system, all information may be accessible with the other provider (except your credit card).
In order to create an account for Kiddo you’ll need to provide us with your email address, phone number, and username. You may also be required to provide your child’s name and birthday, as well as your address and billing information for any payments. By creating an account, you’re agreeing to a few common sense rules and acknowledgements:
- Be honest with us. By creating an account, you’re agreeing to provide accurate and complete information about yourself. It’s not OK to use false information or impersonate another person or company through your account.
- Be respectful. We’re trying to build a supportive community. Therefore, we ask that you respect others in the community. This will allow our community to continue to flourish. If we find out that you are negatively impacting the experience of fellow Kiddo users, we reserve the right to terminate your account.
- You’re responsible for your account. You’re solely responsible for any activity on your account. Your accounts are not transferable. If you’re sharing an account with other people (e.g., if you’re booking Activities on behalf of children other than your own), the person whose email information is on the account will ultimately be responsible for all activity.
By creating an account with Kiddo, you automatically opt in to receive email communications regarding Kiddo. Some of those emails may relate to Activities that you register for on Kiddo. Other emails may be promotional in nature. While you cannot opt-out of transactional emails—such as order confirmations, invoices, and specific communication about your activities —if you book an Activity, you can opt-out of receiving our promotional emails by clicking an unsubscribe link found at the bottom of our promotional emails.
You’re responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access Kiddo and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols) with your account. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions you have about signing up for and registering an account with Kiddo.
No Agency Relationship
By creating an account with Kiddo, or using our Platform, you are not creating an agency, partnership, joint venture, employment, or franchisee relationship with our Company. You further acknowledge that by registering for an Activity through Kiddo, no confidential, fiduciary, contractually implied, or other relationship is created with us other than pursuant to these Terms.
Billing and Payment
By booking an on Kiddo you are responsible for paying any and all applicable fees for the Activities, as indicated on Kiddo at the time of registration.
Generally, our fees are nonrefundable. We may, at our discretion, provide a refund to customers under certain circumstances. Please email email@example.com for consideration. If refunded, we reserve the right to charge you a fee to cover the cost of any Activity you may have attended prior to cancellation. Any additional discounts or refunds that we may choose to provide are in our sole discretion and do not entitle you to any future discounts or refunds for similar instances in the future.
We reserve the right to adjust our prices at any time. If we ever need to change our prices, we will let you know either through Kiddo or email.
You may change your payment information at any time by logging onto Kiddo and going to the "Settings" page. If for some reason a bill is not successfully settled and you do not edit your payment method or cancel your account (see, “Cancellation of Membership” below), you nonetheless remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, authorizing us to continue billing your payment method, as it may be updated, including if you attempt to create a new account. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. If we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right, but are not obligated, to terminate your access to Kiddo or any portion thereof.
Cancellation of Activities
Although we recommend never registering for an Activity unless you are sure you can attend, we know that sometimes things come up. Each Activity is subject to the cancellation policy of the respective Provider, and specific cancellation policies can be found under each respective Activity's details which can be found under your Kiddo ‘My Account’ page after your registration for the respective Activity.[JE4] We recommend reviewing the cancellation policy of each Activity and Provider before registering for an Activity. Any and all cancellations must be made in the manner laid out in the Activity description. If you do not cancel an Activity as required by its respective cancellation policy, and you or your child does not attend the class, we reserve the right to charge you the full amount that the Provider charges for such class and/or the applicable cancellation fees. We also reserve the right to terminate your account.
Fees Charged by Providers
Some of our Providers may charge equipment or other amenity fees for Activities. You are responsible for paying those fees directly to the respective Provider when you attend the Activity, unless otherwise notified beforehand. Any equipment or other amenity fees are independent of our charges for a subscription plan, Pack, or to register for an Activity listed on Kiddo.
Third Party Fees for Using Kiddo
You are also responsible for all third party charges and fees associated with connecting and using Kiddo, including fees such as Internet service provider fees, payment processing fees, telephone and computer equipment charges, sales tax, and any other fees necessary to access Kiddo.
Third Party Services and Content
We often utilize links and other tools to connect users to third party services and websites, such as Providers, advertisers, special offers, camps, or other events or Activities that are not owned or controlled by Kiddo (individually a “Third Party Service,” collectively the “Third Party Services”). We have no control over the content and policies of these Third Party Services, and in no event shall we be held responsible or liable for the accuracy, reliability, or currentness of any third party’s content or policies. Users who access or use Third Party Services through Kiddo are solely responsible for complying with the terms and policies of these third parties.
In no event shall a description or reference to a third party’s product or service (including, but not limited to, providing a description or reference via hyperlink) be construed as an endorsement of such third party products or services by us. We retain the exclusive right to add to, modify, or cancel the availability of any Third Party Service.
