1. Overview

The following agreement ("Agreement") is entered into between You ("Customer" or "You") and ChewFaster, LLC ("ChewFaster"), a Utah limited liability company having a business at 1784 west grays place Lehi, UT 84043 and is made effective on the date of electronic acceptance. This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions that govern Your use of this website and the products and services (collectively, the "Services") found at this site, and is in addition to and not in lieu of any specific terms and conditions that apply to Your purchase of a particular Service. In the event that You provide a purchase order or other ordering document to facilitate Your purchase, the document is incorporated by reference only to the extent that it identifies the Services to be purchased, and all other terms and conditions included in such document are hereby rejected by ChewFaster.

 

Your electronic acceptance and/or use of the Services signifies that You have read, understood and agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement as well as any policies posted on this website and that by such acceptance and/or use of the Services You agree that any previous agreements between You and ChewFaster will be terminated and superseded by this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that ChewFaster’s acceptance of this Agreement and the provision of Services are performed at ChewFaster’s offices in Lehi, Utah, USA. ChewFaster, in its sole discretion, may refuse to provide the Services to any one at any time and for any reason. If ChewFaster exercises this right, ChewFaster will not charge You for the Services and/or refund You for the amounts paid for the Services during the month that ChewFaster invokes its right to deny Service.

 

ChewFaster, in its sole and absolute discretion, may change or modify this Agreement, and the corporate policies and/or Service Specific Terms which are incorporated herein, at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon the earlier of (i) our email notification to You advising You of such changes or modifications (ii) Your electronic acceptance of this Agreement after such changes or modifications have been made to this Agreement as indicated by the "Last Revised" date at the top of this page or (iii) Your continued use of the Services after ChewFaster posts the amended Agreement to ChewFaster.com.

 

2. Eligibility, Point of Contact, Account Ownership

The Services found at this Site are available only to Customers who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. By using the Services found at this Site, You represent and warrant that You are (i) at least eighteen (18) years of age and/or (ii) otherwise recognized as being able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law. You further represent and warrant that You are not on the United States Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Asset Controls list of Specially Designated National and Blocked Persons and are not otherwise a person to whom ChewFaster is legally prohibited to provide the Services.

 

The Customer designated in the accompanying Order Form in the "Your Information" section shall be the single "Point of Contact." Customer’s Point of Contact shall have full authority to enter into agreements and make binding decisions on behalf of Customer. Customer agrees that ChewFaster may rely on representations made by Customer’s Point of Contact. Customer may change its Point of Contact at any time by giving written notice to ChewFaster in accordance with the notice provisions of this Agreement. ChewFaster is under no obligation to accept instructions from anyone other than the Point of Contact. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ChewFaster shall not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from ChewFaster’s reliance on any instruction, notice, document or communication reasonably believed by ChewFaster to be genuine and originating from an authorized representative of Customer’s corporate entity. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any such instruction, notice, document or communication, ChewFaster reserves the right (but not the obligation) to require additional authentication from Customer. In order to permit ChewFaster to protect the quality of its products and services, You hereby consent to ChewFaster staff being able to access Your account and records on a case-by-case basis to investigate complaints or other allegations or abuse.

 

3. Dispute of Site or Account Ownership

The entity or person creating the account and designated as the owner shall be deemed the account owner. For security reasons, only the account owner or Point of Contact designated by the account owner shall be allowed to make changes, cancellations, or designate a new Point of Contact. Disputes sometimes arise between or among multiple persons claiming ownership of or rights in a site, store, or account. ChewFaster is not obligated to and will not resolve any such disputes. If multiple persons are claiming ownership of or rights in a site, store or account, and, in ChewFaster’s sole judgment, there is no certainty as to the ownership of or rights in said site or account, then ChewFaster will, to the extent of its knowledge and ability, notify said persons of the dispute and demand that said persons promptly, conclusively, and finally resolve the dispute in a manner which makes clear who the owner(s) and/or interest holder(s) is/are and in a manner which relieves ChewFaster of all liability or obligations concerning the dispute. If the disputing persons fail so to resolve the dispute within what ChewFaster, in its sole judgment, deems to be a reasonable time, then ChewFaster, at its sole option and without any obligation to do so, may suspend or terminate the account until such persons resolve said dispute and reach certainty regarding ownership of or rights in said site, store and/or account. The person or persons conclusively and finally determined by court order or settlement agreement to be the rightful owner(s) or interest holder(s) of said site, store and/or account shall be obligated to pay all amounts due and comply with the Transfer Policy, if required, to transfer ownership of the site, store and/or account to the rightful owner. Failure of the rightful owner of said site, store and/or account timely pay in full all of said amounts shall be deemed a breach of these Terms and shall subject the account to immediate termination.

 

To transfer ownership of an account, Customer must contact ChewFaster and comply with the Transfer Policy.

 

4. Recommendations

ChewFaster personnel may from time to time recommend third party software or other products and services for Your consideration. ChewFaster MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY WHATSOEVER REGARDING PRODUCTS AND SERVICES THAT ARE NOT PURCHASED FROM ChewFaster, INCLUDING THE COMPATIBILITY OF SUCH PRODUCTS AND SERVICES WITH ChewFaster SOFTWARE. Your use of any such products and services is governed by the terms of Your agreement with the provider of those products and services.

 

5. Software Updates

From time to time, ChewFaster may update the software associated with a Service for many reasons, including but not limited to, (a) to maintain PCI compliance; (b) to fix bugs or problems in previous versions; and/or (c) to enhance functionality or features. ChewFaster makes no warranty that such updates will not affect Your use of the Services or introduce new but unknown bugs into the software. Further, ChewFaster shall not be responsible for the effect an update has on any code not provided by ChewFaster and any modifications to such code to restore functionality shall be Customer’s sole responsibility and cost.

 

Where support is provided by ChewFaster, ChewFaster will provide technical support for the most recent update or version of the Software associated with a Service. From time to time, ChewFaster may provide support for an older version(s), however ChewFaster reserves the right to suspend or terminate such support at any time, with or without notice.

 

6. Use of Customer’s Name and Trademarks

Customer hereby grants ChewFaster a non-exclusive right and license to use Customer’s name and such of Customer’s trade names, trademarks, and service marks (collectively, "Customer’s Marks") as are listed on Customer’s Content or otherwise provided to ChewFaster in connection with this Agreement (a) on ChewFaster’s own Web Sites, (b) in printed and online advertising, publicity, directories, newsletters, and updates describing ChewFaster’s Services, and, (c) in applications reasonably necessary and ancillary to the foregoing. Customer may use ChewFaster’s trade name, trademarks, and service marks (collectively, "ChewFaster’s Marks") in advertising and publicity in conjunction with the offering of Customer’s Content via ChewFaster, provided that Customer shall submit copy to ChewFaster for its prior written approval, and provided further that under no circumstances shall such use imply that ChewFaster endorses, sponsors, certifies, approves or is responsible for Customer’s Content. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer need not obtain ChewFaster’s prior written approval where use of ChewFaster’s Marks is limited to inclusion in a list of systems via which Customer’s Content is available.

 

7. Use of Customer’s User Content

Some of the features of this website or the Services found at this website may allow Customer to view, post, publish, share, store, or manage (a) ideas, opinions, recommendations, or advice ("User Submissions"), or (b) literary, artistic, musical, or other content, including but not limited to photos and videos (together with User Submissions, "User Content"). By providing User Content to ChewFaster via any method (e.g. site submission, email, survey responses, etc.), You represent and warrant to ChewFaster that (i) You have all necessary rights to distribute User Content via this website or via the Services found at this website, either because You are the author of the User Content and have the right to distribute the same, or because You have the appropriate distribution rights, licenses, consents, and/or permissions to use, in writing, from the copyright or other owner of the User Content, and (ii) You do not violate the rights of any third party.

 

The provisions in this Section apply specifically to ChewFaster’s use of User Content posted to ChewFaster’s corporate websites or submitted directly to ChewFaster. The applicable provisions are not intended to and do not have the effect of transferring any ownership or licensed rights (including intellectual property rights) You may have in content posted to Your hosted websites.

 

You shall be solely responsible for any and all of Your User Content or User Content that is submitted through Your Account, and the consequences of, and requirements for, distributing it.

 

You acknowledge and agree that:

1.       Your User Submissions are entirely voluntary.

2.       Your User Submissions do not establish a confidential relationship or obligate ChewFaster to treat Your User Submissions as confidential or secret.

3.       ChewFaster has no obligation, either express or implied, to develop or use Your User Submissions, and no compensation is due to You or to anyone else for any intentional or unintentional use of Your User Submissions.

4.       ChewFaster may be working on the same or similar content, it may already know of such content from other sources, it may simply wish to develop this (or similar) content on its own, or it may have taken / will take some other action.

 

ChewFaster shall own exclusive rights (including all intellectual property and other proprietary rights) to any User Submissions provided to ChewFaster by any method, and shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of any User Submissions provided for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation to You or to anyone else.

 

8. Sublicense

Customer may not sublicense or resell any of ChewFaster’s Services to any third parties without prior written permission of ChewFaster.

 

9. Fees and Payment

9.A. Fees. In consideration of the Services, Customer will pay to ChewFaster all fees due according to the prices and terms listed on the website. All sales are final and ChewFaster offers no partial or full refunds of any kind on any purchase unless otherwise expressly noted, even if Your Services are suspended, terminated or transferred before the end of the Services. ChewFaster expressly reserves the right to change or modify its prices and fees at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be posted online at this Site and effective immediately without need for further notice to You. If You have purchased Services for a period of months or years, changes or modifications in prices and fees shall be effective when the Services in question come up for renewal. ChewFaster may, at its sole option, extend payment terms to Customer. Should ChewFaster extend payment terms, You agree that Your obligation to pay ChewFaster for the Services ordered begins on the date of purchase and does not end until paid in full, even if the Services are abandoned, suspended, terminated or transferred prior to such time.

 

B. Payment. Unless otherwise agreed to by ChewFaster, all payments are due upon signup, the Services will not begin until payment is received. All recurring charges will be due every 30 days from the date of Your initial signup. It is Customer’s obligation to review all monthly charges for accuracy. Failure to dispute a charge within six (6) months following such charge shall constitute Customer’s agreement that all charges are valid and Customer agrees to waive any claims it may have had regarding such charge. If a payment is returned or rejected by ChewFaster’s bank, or incurs additional costs for ChewFaster (e.g., bank fees) for any reason, then Customer may be charged a service fee of $40 and be required reimburse all such fees and costs incurred by ChewFaster, and Customer shall be immediately deemed to be in default of this Agreement. Accounts and all amounts in default are subject to a late payment charge of 1.5% per month, or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is greater, until fully paid. If Customer defaults, Customer agrees to pay ChewFaster its reasonable expenses, including attorney, in house legal expenses, and collection agency fees, incurred in enforcing its rights.

 

C. Billing Policies and Cycles. We offer billing via credit card or debit card charge only. All initial fees must be paid prior to service setup. These fees may include service setup fees and first month service charge. Our billing cycle begins on the day we set up Your account, and is due every 30 days thereafter. ChewFaster attempts to automatically charge the credit card on file for any past due invoice for current, suspended and cancelled accounts. Accounts suspended and reactivated must pay all past due and current amounts and may also have to pay a reactivation fee. If you cancel Your service for any reason, You must sign up for new service and pay the full setup fees associated with the plan You choose. To cancel Your account, the Point of Contact must send an email to support@ChewFaster.com requesting cancellation. To ensure that You are not billed for another month of service, You must cancel Your account before Your billing cycle due date.

 

Note: All billing correspondence (invoices, notifications, etc.) is done via email. It is crucial that You maintain a current email address with us.

 

D. Taxes. All fees charged by ChewFaster for the Services are exclusive of all taxes, VAT and similar fees now in force or enacted in the future imposed on the transaction and/or the delivery of Services, all of which Customer will be responsible for and will pay in full, except for taxes based on ChewFaster’s net income. If ChewFaster is required to pay directly any such taxes, Customer will, upon receipt of ChewFaster’s invoice, promptly reimburse ChewFaster for any such taxes paid by ChewFaster.

 

10. Security

Customer acknowledges that the Internet is not a secure or completely reliable system. ChewFaster will take those precautions ChewFaster deems reasonable in its sole discretion to secure Customer’s Web Site from attack, but ChewFaster makes no warranty that there will be no outages or interruptions of service, or that Customer’s Content will be secure against attack of any form by end users or other third parties.

 

11. PCI Guidelines

ChewFaster provides a framework to its customers which utilizes an encrypted SSL certificate. Authorize.net payment integration along with the use of Customer Information Manager ensures full PCI compliance. However, if a ChewFaster customer chooses to utilize the software other than as intended, utilize third party services or software, fail to install a SSL Certificate, or otherwise combine the software with software not approved by ChewFaster (each a "Customer Fail Point"), Customer may fail to comply with the minimum PCI standards regardless of ChewFaster’s framework.

 

Therefore, if a ChewFaster customer chooses to engage in one or more Customer Fail Points, that customer assumes all liability for their actions and the inherent risk associated with viewing, processing, storing or transmitting credit card information and agrees to indemnify ChewFaster of any costs, claims or damages associated with such risk. ChewFaster will not be responsible for any such risk or liability regardless of the security settings.

 

Further, if a merchant chooses to view credit card information, they are certifying that they understand and are following all PCI guidelines for viewing credit card information. These guidelines can be found at Visa’s website.

 

If a merchant does not follow all of the PCI guidelines when viewing credit card information, that merchant is in breach of its contract with ChewFaster and possibly Visa/Mastercard/Discover/American Express. You agree to indemnify and hold ChewFaster harmless from any and all claims, costs or damages associated with Your failure to follow PCI guidelines.

 

Regardless of any Customer Fail Point, a customer must comply with the PCI DSS and assume liability applicable to PCI DSS. In addition, per PCI guidelines, stores must use a strong security protocol such as SSL to safeguard sensitive cardholder data over networks.

 

At its discretion, ChewFaster reserves the right to change the security settings of any merchant at any time with or without warning. ChewFaster further reserves the right, but not the obligation, to suspend or terminate any merchant that is suspected or proven to be in violation of minimum PCI guidelines.

 

12. Prohibited Practices

ChewFaster shall have no duty or obligation to monitor Customer’s Content or any other Content provided or distributed by others, and ChewFaster shall not edit or otherwise exercise any control over Customer’s Content. Nevertheless, ChewFaster may, in its sole discretion at any time, without notice to Customer, and without liability to Customer, remove from public view, disconnect, or terminate the hosting of any of Customer’s Content or other Content that ChewFaster deems in its sole discretion to be offensive or illegal, for any one or more of the following reasons: (i) the content is adjudicated to be in violation of the laws of the state where the server resides; illegal or sexually explicit Content or activities, or any Content that allegedly violates the law, rules or regulations of any country or subdivision thereof; (ii) the content constitutes harassment of Users, including, but not limited to, by means of Customer’s billing practices; or (iii) Customer’s noncompliance with or material breach of any of the terms and conditions of the AUP or this Agreement; or (iv) claims made by third parties against ChewFaster that Customer or any of its end users has engaged in one or more of the above practices.

 

13. No Solicitation

Customer agrees Customer will NOT approach any employees of ChewFaster and its affiliates with proposals to hire them as its own employees or contractors. If You were to hire any of ChewFaster’s employees, You agree to pay ChewFaster for each employee hired the greater amount of three (3) years’ salary for that employee as You are to pay such employee, or $200,000.

 

14. Customer’s Indemnification

Customer shall indemnify and hold harmless ChewFaster from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action, suits, proceedings, losses, damages, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees and fees attributable to in house legal personnel, arising from or relating to Customer’s provision, or an end user’s use, of Customer’s Content, or any act, error, or omission of Customer in connection therewith, including but not limited to matters relating to incorrect, incomplete, or misleading information; libel; invasion of privacy; infringement of a copyright, trade name, trademark, service mark, or other intellectual property or other right; or violation of any applicable law.
