Last modified on 5/20/2020
1. Terms. This Merchant Terms and Conditions of Use (the “Agreement” or “Terms”) is a legal agreement between you (“Merchant” or “You” or “Your”) and Coffey Ventures, Inc., a Delaware corporation, DBA Joe Coffee (the “Company”). This Agreement contains the terms and conditions that govern Your access to, and use of, the website, merchant application, or mobile application (the “Apps”) of the Company. By downloading, subscribing to, or in any way accessing the Apps, You agree to follow and abide by these Terms, and You agree that You are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. If You do not agree with any of the Terms herein, You must forego using or accessing the Apps.
In addition, if You choose to use the Clover App Market for integration purposes, You understand and acknowledge that You may be bound by the applicable Clover terms and conditions of use.
2. Important Information.
a. These Terms Govern Your Use of the Apps. The Apps must be installed on a compatible mobile device in order to access and use the Company’s Apps. The Company does not warrant that the Company’s Apps will be compatible with Your mobile or other computing device or carrier. Your use of the Apps may be subject to the terms of Your agreements with Your mobile device manufacturer or Your carrier.
By accessing the Apps, You agree to comply with this Agreement and that Your use of the Apps, and any dispute arising out of Your use, will be governed by this Agreement. If You are using the Apps on behalf of a company or other entity, or if You contract for services on behalf of a company or other entity, You represent and warrant that You have full legal authority to access the Apps on behalf of that entity and bind it to these Terms. If You are not authorized, You may not accept these Terms for someone else.
b. Reliability of Information. The Company does its best to provide the most accurate information possible with regard to our Apps, but it is impossible to guarantee accuracy. The Company does not offer to provide information that is error free, up to date, or appropriate for Your needs.
c. Minors. The Apps are available only for individuals who are thirteen (13) years or older, and the Company does not knowingly collect information from persons under the age of thirteen (13). If You are thirteen (13) or older but under eighteen (18) (or the legal age of majority where You reside if that jurisdiction has an age of majority older than eighteen (18)), You must review the Terms with Your parent or guardian to make sure that both You and Your parent or guardian understand and agree to this Agreement, and Your parent or guardian must accept this Agreement on Your behalf. If You are a parent or guardian agreeing to this Agreement for the benefit of a minor, then You agree to and accept full responsibility for that minor’s use of the Apps.
3. Payments and How It Works. Features of the Apps enable payments, including those from Merchants and consumers, which rely on accurate bank account, credit card, and information provided by parties to the transaction. We collect data necessary to process your payment such as your payment instrument number (such as a credit card number), and the security code associated with your payment instrument. All payment data is stored by a secure third-party payment gateway. We do not store your payment information, and we only share that information with our secure third-party payment gateway in order to process the payments or refunds required for your account. The Company cannot guarantee the accuracy of payment information, which is the responsibility of the parties, and cannot be responsible for delay or interruption of payments due to inaccurate information. When You provide payment information, You consent to transactions initiated by You and enabled by the Apps. Payment features are enabled through our secured third-party payment gateway, Stripe, which may request additional payment information from time-to-time to enable certain features of the Apps, which features may become unavailable if You do not provide such additional information.
Because orders, payments, refunds, and rewards incorporate Stripe services, by using the Apps, You also agree to be bound by Stripe’s Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies, available at: https://stripe.com/us/connect-account/legal.
a. Payments by Merchant. Your payments to the Company covers all of the benefits that You receive from the Apps, including ordering online, reducing queuing time, improved business efficiency, an alternative to other competing reward programs, and a loyalty program for consumers. Your payment to the Company shall consist of a flat fee of nine percent (9%) (the “Charge”) on all goods, including tip and tax, of every order where consumers use the Apps to order from You. The Charge is a fee for service, where the service the Company provides You encompasses all of the benefits from using the Apps. This also includes the fee of payment processing of 2.9% charged by Stripe for their processing fee.
b. Consumer Rewards. Consumers who use the Apps to purchase goods and services from You get rewarded for their loyalty. When a consumer spends sixty-five dollars ($65) and earns 1000 beans through the Apps, the consumer is awarded up to six dollars ($6) off a future order (the “Reward”), to be used on the Company’s Apps. If the Consumers redeems their Reward at your location You are responsible for the cost of the Reward.
c. Invoices and Accounting. You shall submit a monthly invoice to the Company for all Rewards redeemed by consumers. All invoices shall be submitted electronically to the Company. The Company shall pay Your invoice within thirty days from receipt of the invoice.
The Company will submit a weekly accounting to You with respect to Charges and Rewards. You will need to add the e-mail address you wish to have the weekly reports e-mailed to in your merchant dashboard under “Notifications”.
d. Merchant Promotions. If You receive “owner” status for Your merchant account You may have the capability of creating unique promotional codes for Your merchant account with the Company (“Merchant Codes”). “Owner” status may be granted to You if You have provided the Company the information requested by the Company, as needed, to verify Your merchant account. Merchant Codes can be in the form of providing a discounted percentage or discounted dollar amount (i.e. 10% off or $1 dollar off) for Your products, goods, or services. You may set certain limitations on the use of Your Merchant Codes. Merchant Codes You promote and honor are Your responsibility and obligation. You understand and agree that the Company will not be responsible or obligated for any Merchant Codes you decide to promote and use.
e. Company Promotions. From time to time, the Company may promote certain unique promotional codes on behalf of the Company, which may be used with all merchants (“Global Codes”). The Company will compensate You for the amounts attributable to Global Codes used at Your store. The Global Codes may be for a limited time and the Company reserves the right to modify or cancel the offer related to the Global Codes.
f. Refer-A-Friend Promotion. The Company has a refer-a-friend promotion for consumers where consumers may earn “beans” which are credited to the consumer’s account. Consumers who are referred and sign up for the App will receive a free coffee (up to a $6 value). The Company will pay for the cost of this free coffee for the new and unique user. Consumers earn 100 beans for each new and unique user who they refer when each new and unique user signs up on the Company’s App and the new and unique user redeems their free referral drink. The referring consumer may then exchange one thousand beans at Your store for a free drink. By agreeing to this TOS, You understand, acknowledge, and agree to provide a free drink to consumers who exchange 1000 beans for a free drink at Your store. You will not be reimbursed by the Company for the cost of this drink. The refer-a-friend promotion expands the reach of the Company which helps generate more sales and customers at Your store.
g. Taxes Generally. It is Merchant’s responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments Merchant makes or receives, and it is Merchant’s responsibility to collect, report, and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. The Company is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to Merchant’s transaction with either consumers or the Company, or for collecting, reporting, or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction with or by Merchant and consumers or the Company.
4. Changes. The Company may modify this Agreement at any time by giving notice to You, which notice shall be made by posting a revised version of this Agreement on the Apps or by notifying You in accordance with this Agreement. The modified Terms will become effective as stated in the message announcing the change in Terms. Your continued use of the Apps after the effective date of any modification to this Agreement will be deemed Your acceptance of such modifications. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any changes to this Agreement will not apply to any dispute between You and the Company arising prior to the effective date of any such change(s). The Company last modified this Agreement on the date listed at the beginning of this Agreement.

13. General Terms.
a. Independent Contractor. Merchant and the Company are independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement is to be construed to create a joint venture, partnership, franchise, or an agency relationship between the parties. Neither party has the authority, without the other party’s prior written approval, to bind or commit the other in any way.
b. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington, as if performed wholly within the state and without giving effect to the principles of conflict of law.
c. Arbitration. You and the Company agree to arbitrate any and all disputes by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same individual damages and individual relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST THE COMPANY. If any provision of this arbitration provision is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration). All disputes will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) administered by the American Arbitration Association (https://www.adr.org) according to this Section and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. Any arbitration hearing will occur in Seattle, Washington, or another mutually agreeable location. If the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000.00, the arbitrator’s decision shall include a statement specifying in reasonable detail the basis for and computation of the amount of the award, if any. A party substantially prevailing in the arbitration shall also be entitled to recover such amount for its costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the arbitration as shall be determined by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the Arbitrator may do so only with respect to the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party’s claim. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to You and the Company also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of the Apps.
d. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, invalid, or unenforceable, that provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives and intent of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect. If such construction is not possible, the invalid or unenforceable portion will be severed from this Agreement, but the remainder of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
e. Assignment. You may not assign, delegate, or sublicense any of Your rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the Company’s prior written consent. Any assignment or transfer in violation of this Section will be void.
f. Survival. The sections which, by their nature, shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement include, without limitation: Section 7 [Ownership], Section 9 [Disclaimer of Warranties], Section 10 [Limitation of Liability], Section 11 [Indemnity], and Section 13 [General Terms].
g. No Waiver. The Company’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision or of any other right or provision. All waivers must be in writing to be effective.
i. Notices to You. The Company may provide You with notices regarding the Apps, including changes to this Agreement, by email to Your email address (and/or other alternate email address associated with Your account if provided), by regular mail, or by postings on the Apps. Notices that are provided by posting on the Apps will be effective three (3) days after posting. Notices that are provided by email will be effective when the Company sends the email. It is Your responsibility to keep Your email address current. You will be deemed to have received any email sent to the email address then associated with Your account when the Company sends the email, whether You actually receive the email.
j. Language. All communications and notices to be made or given pursuant to this Agreement must be in the English language.
