Salon Concepts Terms of Service Agreement

The terms of service set forth in this Terms of Service Agreement and in the linked Privacy Policy (together, the “Agreement”) constitute a legally binding agreement between you (“User,” “you” or “your”) and Salon Concepts (the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) regarding your access to and use of www.salon-concepts.com and all of its subdomains, including all public and secured areas and the interactive and passive content, products and services made available there (collectively, the “Site”).

This Agreement governs your rights and responsibilities regarding the Company and the Site.  Please review it carefully.

1. Unauthorized Access and Use.

You may not access or use the Site if you (i) are under the age of 13, (ii) are a resident of a European Union member state, or (iii) do not understand all of the provisions of this Agreement and agree to be bound by and comply with them.

2. Acceptance of Agreement.

By accessing or using any part of the Site, you are electronically accepting this Agreement and all of its provisions and agreeing to be bound by and comply with them and are expressly acknowledging and representing to the Company: (i) that you are not prohibited from accessing or using the Site under paragraph 1, above, (ii) that you have the legal capacity and authority to enter into and bind yourself to this Agreement, (iii) that you understand all of the provisions of this Agreement, and (iv) that you understand and acknowledge that this Agreement has the same force and effect as an agreement in writing signed by you and the Company.

You further acknowledge, understand and agree that, unless you are a Salon Owner, this Agreement constitutes the entire and only agreement between you and us and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous written, oral or implied agreements, representations, warranties and understandings with respect to the Site and the subject matter of this Agreement.  If you are a Salon Owner, you acknowledge, understand and agree that this Agreement supplements, but does not amend, any prior or contemporaneous written agreements between you and us (your “Owner Agreements”) and, in the event anything in this Agreement conflicts with anything in the Owner Agreements, the Owner Agreements shall control.

3. Amendments to Agreement.

We may amend this Agreement at any time and from time to time for any reason, by providing you with notice of the changes.  You agree that we may provide you with notices about the Site, including notice of amendments to the Agreement, electronically by posting such notices or amended versions of the Agreement on the Site or by contacting you via the information you have provided to us.  By accessing or using any part of the Site after we notify you of an amendment, you electronically consent to and accept the Agreement, as amended, which will then take effect without any further action by you or us.  Any purported changes to the Agreement by any means other than those described in this paragraph shall be void and without force or effect.  You may always review the most current version of this Agreement by clicking on the “Terms of Service” links and the “Privacy Policy” link on the Site.

4. Privacy.

Our Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time pursuant to paragraph 3, is a part of this Agreement.  In the event of any conflict between the Privacy Policy and these Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy shall control.  You must review the Privacy Policy by clicking on this link.

5. Salon Owners.

The Site contains listings of Salon Concepts locations and of stylists that offer services at those locations (the “Salon Owners”).  Salon Owners are independent contractors who lease space from Salon Concepts, not employees or agents of Salon Concepts.  Each Salon Owner has and maintains a profile page on the Site that features such information as services offered and professional history.  The Site hosts profile pages and enables online appointment booking for Salon Owners, but the individual Salon Owners are solely responsible for ensuring that material submitted for inclusion on the Site is accurate and complies with applicable laws.  Salon Concepts does not guarantee or warrant the accuracy or legality of the information on any Salon Owner’s profile page, the performance of any appointment you book through the Site, or the quality or your satisfaction with any services a Salon Owner provides to you.

6. Missed Appointments.

If you miss a booked appointment without notice or fail to notify a Salon Owner in a timely manner that you wish to cancel a booked appointment, your credit card may be charged without further notice to you.  All missed appointment and cancellations policies, including advance notice required and fees charged, are set by individual Salon Owners.  Please contact your Salon Owner with any questions or concerns.

7. Intellectual Property.

This Agreement refers to the content on the Site, including all information, data, logos, marks, designs, graphics, pictures, sound files, documents, other files and materials, and their selection and arrangement, as “Company Content.”  All Company Content and all software available on the Site or used to create and operate the Site is the property of the Company or its licensors and is protected by domestic and international copyright laws, and all rights to the Site, the Company Content and such software are expressly reserved.  All trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned in the Site are the property of their respective owners.  Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation by the Company.

8. Your Limited License to Company Content.

Any use of any portion of the Company Content not expressly authorized by this paragraph or the separate written permission of its owner is strictly prohibited and will terminate the License, this Agreement and your permission to use the Site.  Any such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws.  Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in this Agreement may be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise.

(c)        The Company may revoke the License at any time, in its sole and absolute discretion.

22. Miscellaneous.

You and we are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement creates a joint venture, franchisor-franchisee, partnership, or agency relationship between you and us.  This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of you and us and your and our respective heirs, personal representatives, successors and permitted assigns.  There are no third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement..  This Agreement shall be interpreted and applied as though it were executed and performed solely in Cincinnati, Ohio, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio (without regard to any choice or conflict of law principles that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction).  Numbered captions and headings in this Agreement are inserted for convenience in locating its provisions and are not to be used in the interpretation or construction of this Agreement.  The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party.  If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed amended to the minimum extent necessary to render such provision valid and enforceable under applicable law and all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect as written.  To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall control.  Our failure to enforce or delay in enforcing any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of that or any other provision or of our right to enforce all of the Agreement’s provisions at that or any other time.  Except as set forth elsewhere in this Agreement, the rights and remedies available to you or to us under this Agreement are cumulative and will not limit or eliminate any other rights or remedies that may be available.  Paragraphs 3, 6, 7, 8(b), 8(c), 9 through 14, 16 through 19, 21 and 22, and all of our rights under this Agreement shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
