CareCrew Terms of Service
Effective Date: August 30, 2018
WELCOME TO CAREN
You acknowledge and agree that, by accessing or using the Caren Services, or by downloading, uploading, or posting any content from or on the Site or through the Caren 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. If you do not agree to these Terms, then you have no right to access or use the Site or Caren Services. This agreement governs your use (and that of any person you invite or register to use the service).
The Service generally facilitates the coordination of visits and communication of information among a group of family members, friends and caregivers of a person receiving care.
As used in this Agreement:
A “CareRecipient” is the person receiving care;
A “CareCaptain” is the person (or persons) who administer a CareCircle and with the authorization of the CareRecipient, have the ability to invite individuals to join a CareCircle;
A “CareMember” is a family member or friend of a CareRecipient that has been invited by a CareCaptain to join a CareCircle;
A “CareGiver” is a hired care provider of a CareRecipient that has been invited by a CareCaptain to join a CareCircle; and
A “CareCircle” collectively includes a CareRecipient and all associated CareCaptains, CareMembers and CareGivers.
The following terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions” or “Agreement”) govern your use of our website and mobile application and your use of our products, software, and services. Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully. Your use of our Site and Services constitutes your agreement to be bound by all terms. If you disagree with one or more of these terms or find them unacceptable in any way, please do not enter or use our Site or Services.
These Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between us and you regarding the Site and Caren Services. In the event that you have elected to access restricted portions of the Site or use additional Caren Services, which are subject to additional terms and conditions, any additional terms and conditions applicable to that portion of the Site or additional Caren Service are expressly included within these Terms as well.
The failure of CareCrew to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. 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.
AGREEMENT & CHANGES
Any use of our Site and Services after our publication of any such changes shall constitute your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions as modified. However, any Dispute that arose before the modification shall be governed by the Terms and Conditions (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that was in place when the Dispute arose.
The parties confirm that it is their wish that the Terms of Service, as well as any other documents relating to the Terms of Service, including notices, schedules and authorizations have been and shall be drawn up in the English language only. You should from time to time review these Terms of Service to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Services and Site.
We reserve the right to terminate Your access to the Service without notice if You violate this Agreement or for any reason at our discretion.

In the event that we are unable to successfully charge You for Your subscription fees, for example, due to an expired credit card, Your subscription will be terminated effective as of Your designated billing date, unless You provide a new payment method prior to such termination. If Your subscription to the Service is billed through one of our partners (e.g., mobile carriers, or app stores such as, iTunes or Google Play) (each, a “Partner”), then Your billing date may be determined according to the Partner’s applicable policies. All payments processed by us must be made by an approved payment method, such as a credit card, which will be indicated at the time that You provide Your payment method. As between You and us, You are responsible for paying any amounts for Service billed to Your payment method by a Partner or third party who had access to Your payment method, whether or not such amounts were authorized by You. You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with Your account (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. If We do not receive payment from Your payment method issuer or its agent, You agree to pay all amounts properly due upon our demand.

Free Trials of the Service may require that You provide us or our Partner with a payment method prior to initiating the Free Trial. In such cases, You agree that if You have not cancelled Your subscription prior to the expiration of Your Free Trial, Your registered payment method may be automatically charged and Your subscription will begin on the first day after the expiration of Your Free Trial. If You do cancel Your subscription prior to the expiration of Your Free Trial, Your Free Trial will continue until its designated expiration, but Your registered payment method will not be charged. If Your Free Trial does not require You to provide us or our Partner a payment method, then You will lose Your free access to the Service at the expiration of the Free Trial unless You register for a subscription during the Free Trial, in which case, Your payment method will be charged and Your subscription to the Service will begin on the first day following the expiration of Your Free Trial.

Statute of Limitations.
GOVERNING LAW/DISPUTE RESOLUTION
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without CareCrew’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. CareCrew may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Governing Law/Waiver of Injunctive Relief.
To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement (“Dispute”), You and CareCrew agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other. You will send Your notice to: Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, 595 Burrard St, Vancouver, BC V7X 1L3
If You and CareCrew are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations within thirty (30) days, either You or CareCrew may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.
Notwithstanding the above, You and CareCrew agree that arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between CareCrew and You individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration will be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
These Terms of Service shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the province of Quebec and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, excluding any rules of private international law or the conflict of laws which would lead to the application of any other laws. Customer agrees that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service or your use of the Services shall be filed and adjudicated only in the federal or provincial courts located in the Province of Québec (District of Montreal), and Customer hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents and attorns to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of the Terms of Service or your relationship with CareCrew. The foregoing choice of jurisdiction and venue shall not prevent CareCrew from seeking injunctive relief with respect to a violation of intellectual property rights, enforcement or recognition of any award or order in any appropriate jurisdiction.
Binding Individual Arbitration.
You and CareCrew agree to arbitrate all Disputes. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED, AND YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST CARECREW. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration).
Additional Rules for Non-appearance Based Arbitration.
If non-appearance arbitration is elected as provided above, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.
This Agreement is entered into and performed in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. It is governed by and shall be construed under the laws of British Columbia, exclusive of any choice of law or conflict of law provisions.
