3. PURPOSE OF EXPOND

The EXPOND Site is a marketplace where those people interested in booking on-demand health and wellness services (“Clients”) and Professionals can identify each other and advertise, provide, and buy EOD Activities online (“EXPOND Purpose”). Subject to the Terms of Service, EXPOND provides the Services to users by hosting and maintaining the Site and facilitating the formation of contracts for provision and receipt of EOD Activities (“EOD Contract”). When a user enters into an EOD Contract, the users use the Site and Services to communicate with each other, and to issue invoices and pay any amounts owed under the EOD Contract.

A. RELATIONSHIP WITH EXPOND

EXPOND makes the Site and Services available to enable Professionals and Clients to find and transact directly with each other. Through the Site and Services, Professionals may be notified of Clients that may be seeking the EOD Activities they offer. At all times, however, users are responsible for evaluating and determining the suitability of any EOD Activity, Professional or Client on their own.

If a Client and Professional decide to enter into an EOD Contract, that EOD Contract is directly between the User and the Professional; EXPOND is not a party to the EOD Contract. The Client and Professional have complete discretion, both with regard to whether to enter into an EOD Contract and the selected terms of any such EOD Contract. You acknowledge, agree, and understand that EXPOND is not a party to any EOD Contract and that the formation of an EOD Contract between users will not, under any circumstance, create an employment or other service relationship between EXPOND and any user or a partnership or joint venture between EXPOND and any user.

You further acknowledge, agree, and understand that you are solely responsible for assessing whether to enter into an EOD Contract with another user and for reviewing any information about another user, including Composite Information (defined below). EXPOND does not make any representations about or guarantee the truth or accuracy of any Professional’s or Client’s listings or other Content on the Site, and does not verify any feedback or information provided by Users about Professionals or Clients.

You acknowledge, agree, and understand that EXPOND does not, in any way, supervise, direct, control, or evaluate Professionals or their work and is not responsible for any EOD Activity or EOD Activity terms. EXPOND makes no representations about and does not guarantee, and you agree not to hold EXPOND responsible for: (1) the quality, safety, or legality of EOD Activities; (2) the qualifications, background, or identities of users; (3) the ability of Professionals to deliver EOD Activities properly, safely, or accurately; (4) the ability of Clients to pay for EOD Activities; (5) Content and statements or posts made by users; or (6) the ability or willingness of a Client or Professional to actually complete a EOD Contract or transaction.

You also acknowledge, agree, and understand that Professionals are solely responsible for determining, and have the sole right to agree to, which EOD Activities to offer; the time, place, manner, and means of providing any EOD Activity and the price they receive for such services.

C. PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH EXPOND

Nothing in this Agreement is intended to or should be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, franchisor/franchisee or employer-employee relationship between EXPOND and any Professional.  You acknowledge, agree, and understand that: (1) you are not an employee of EXPOND, and you are not eligible for any of the rights or benefits of employment (including unemployment and/or workers compensation insurance); (2) EXPOND will not have any liability or obligations for acts or omissions by you or other users with respect to EOD Contracts and/or EOD Activities; (3) EXPOND does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control any Professional or their provision EOD Activities; (4) Professionals are free to determine when and if to perform or provide EOD Activities and EXPOND does not set or have any control over whether Professionals choose to perform EOD Activities, or their work hours and work schedules; (5) Professionals will be paid in accordance with the terms of any EOD Contract agreed to, and EXPOND does not, in any way, provide or guarantee Professionals a regular salary or any minimum, regular payment; (6) EXPOND does not provide Professionals with training or any equipment, labor, tools, or materials related to any EOD Contract; and (7) EXPOND does not provide the premises at which Professionals will perform the work.

(i) Payment for EOD Activities

All payment received by a Professional who provides EOD Activities will be in accordance with the payment terms set forth on the Site and agreed upon by the Professional and the Client. EXPOND is not a party to the EOD Contract.  

After completion of the EOD Activity, the responsible Professional shall receive payment of the amount agreed upon in the associated EOD Contract within ten (10) days. Such payment shall be issued to the Professional through EXPOND’s automated clearing house (“ACH”) service provider, Stripe, Inc., as further described in Paragraph 9(a) below.

(iii) No Fee for Introducing or for Finding Projects

Although EXPOND may do so on occasion, it is not in the busines of making direct referrals and does not always help Professionals secure bookings for EOD Activities. EXPOND merely makes the Site and Services available to enable Professionals to do so themselves. Therefore, EXPOND does not charge a referral fee when a Professional finds a suitable Client. In addition, EXPOND does not charge any fee or dues for posting public feedback and composite or compiled feedback, including Composite Information.

(iv) Service Fees for Professionals

EXPOND uses Stripe to make payouts to Professionals (“Payout(s)”). The Stripe Recipient Agreement (https://stripe.com/connect-account/legal/recipient) applies to your receipt of such Payouts. To receive Payouts from EXPOND, you must provide EXPOND accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize EXPOND to share it and transaction information related to your Payout with Stripe.

When EOD Services are Booked Directly Through the Expond Website:

When a Client makes a payment for an EOD Contract (“Client Payment”), the Client Payment is processed through Stripe. Stripe will then issue a Payout to the Professionals for one hundred percent (100%) of the Client Payment, less a service fee for the use of the Site and Services, including the communication, invoicing, reporting, and payment processing services (the “Service Fee”), which will be remitted to EXPOND.

When EOD Services are Booked through a Participating Hotel Partner:

When a Client makes a payment for an EOD Contract (“Client Payment”) that was booked through a participating hotel referral partner (“Hotel Partner”), the Client Payment is processed through Stripe. Stripe will then issue a Payout to the Professionals for one hundred percent (100%) of the Client Payment, less (1) a twenty percent (20%) referral fee that will be paid to the referring Hotel Partner, and (2) a service fee for the use of the Site and Services, including the communication, invoicing, reporting, and payment processing services (the “Service Fee”), which will be remitted to EXPOND.

For example, a Professional may be given the opportunity to rate a Client to whom they provided a EOD Activity using the Rating System. The Rating System allows EXPOND to regularly review feedback from both Clients and Professionals and, using this input, further develop and maintain a safe and respectful environment for all EXPOND users.

EXPOND takes all feedback provided through the Rating System seriously. EXPOND reserves the right to deactivate any Client Account or Professional Account (as these terms are defined below) based on feedback regarding the Account holder. Furthermore, EXPOND reserves the sole and absolute right to (1) make all such ratings public or private, (2) determine how the Rating System operates, (3) determine if ratings will be anonymous with respect to each Client Account and Professional Account, and (4) resolve any disputes concerning or related to the EXPOND Services.

15. ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

If a dispute arises out of or relates to these terms, or the breach thereof, and if the dispute cannot be settled through negotiation, you (and the parties to the dispute) agree first to try in good faith to settle the dispute by mediation. If the dispute is not settled by mediation, the dispute shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. THIS IS A WAIVER OF RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, IF ANY.

Upon demanding arbitration, you must give written notice of any claim to EXPOND, setting out the basis of the claim, and proposing the name of an arbitrator, no later than twelve (12) months after the occurrence of the event giving rise to the claim. Otherwise, the claim shall be void and deemed waived even if there is a federal or state statute of limitations which would have given you more time to pursue the claim. Any arbitrator you propose must either be a retired judge or be an attorney who has at least 10 years of relevant experience to the claim at issue. Any responding party to the demand, has twenty (20) business days in which to respond to the arbitration demand in a written answer. If a response is not timely made, or if the responding party agrees with the person proposed as the arbitrator, then the person named by the demanding party will serve as the arbitrator. If the responding party submits a written answer rejecting the proposed arbitrator, then, unless the parties agree on an arbitrator, on the request of either party, the American Arbitration Association will select an arbitrator pursuant to its method of appointment for the Resolution of Commercial Disputes.

You (and the parties to the dispute) are entitled to discovery sufficient to adequately arbitrate the claim(s), including access to essential documents and witnesses, determined by the arbitrator as necessary to a full and fair exploration of the issues in dispute, consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration. No less than thirty (30) calendar days before the arbitration, a party may serve a document request calling for any document that would be discoverable in civil litigation. The party served with this request shall deliver the requested documents and any objections within ten (10) business days. Each party may take no more than three (3) depositions, unless additional depositions are allowed by the arbitrator for good cause. All depositions must be completed as of fourteen (14) calendar days before the arbitration hearing. The arbitrator shall have the power to resolve any dispute over the exchange of documents or depositions; issue subpoenas for the attendance of witnesses and subpoenas duces tecum for the production of books, records, documents, or other evidence; to order depositions to be used as evidence; and subject to the limitations above, enforce the rights, remedies, procedures, duties, liabilities, and obligations of discovery as if the arbitration were a civil action before a California Superior Court. 

The arbitration will take place in Santa Barbara, California at a time and place selected by the arbitrator.

Within fifteen (15) days from the date the hearing is closed, the arbitrator will submit a tentative decision in writing, specifying the reasoning for the decision and any calculations necessary to explain the award. The tentative decision will dispose of each issue submitted to the arbitrator. Each party has 15 days in which to submit written comments to the tentative decision. Within 10 days after the deadline for written comments, the arbitrator will announce the final award in a writing provided to the parties. The arbitrator’s award is subject to judicial review for errors of law or legal reasoning. Before arbitration commences, each party to the dispute will pay the arbitrator half of the expected cost of the arbitration. Unless otherwise ordered by the arbitrator, each party shall pay its own attorneys’ fees, witness fees, and other expenses incurred by the party.
