The Masters Services
Masters is a platform that connects salons, merchants, stylists, and Professionals providing hair, beauty and other health and wellness services ("Services") with clients seeking such services ("Clients"). The Professionals and Clients are both users of the Services provided by Masters and are hereinafter referred to collectively as "Users."
Fees and Payment
Fees for the Subscription ("Subscription Fees") are set forth (a) herein, (b) online and/or (c) in a separately executed or accepted Subscription agreement between you and Masters. In addition to the Subscription Fees, Masters charges a processing fee (indicated at time of charge) for appointments made using the Services. We reserve the right, upon notice to you, to change the amount of the processing fee. Masters takes a percentage of the first appointment cost from a new client appointment which Masters drives to you.
You agree to pay Masters the Subscription Fees, and any other applicable fees as may be agreed to by you. All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable except for as expressly provided in these Terms of Service. Unless otherwise stated, fees must be paid in advance of each billing period.
Each Professional authorizes us to confirm that the credit card account or other payment method associated with their Account and used in connection with the Services is and remains in good standing with a financial institution as long as the Professional is using the Services. Each Professional authorizes us to obtain credit reports or other background inquiries from time to time to assess the Professional's eligibility to continue use of the Services. All balances and all fees, charges, and payments collected or paid through the Services are denominated in US dollars. Users of the Service will be liable for any taxes (including VAT, if applicable, required to be paid on the Services provided under the Agreement (other than taxes on the Company's income).
Your Subscription starts on the date that you sign up for a Subscription and submit payment. Unless otherwise communicated to you at the time of sign up, each Subscription cycle is one-month in length ("Subscription Period"), and will automatically renew on a monthly basis until we terminate the Subscription, or you notify us via the Services or by email to email@example.com of your decision to terminate your current Subscription. Unless otherwise communicated to you, you will be billed on the monthly anniversary of first submitting payment to us for your Subscription (e.g., if your Subscription begins on January 25th, it will renew on February 25th, March 25th, and so on. If your Subscription begins on a date that doesn't occur every billing cycle (e.g., the 31st), you will be billed on the last day of every month. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing. You acknowledge that the amount billed to you each month may vary due to promotional offers and/or adding or changing your Subscription plan, and you authorize Masters to charge you for these varying amounts as necessary.
We reserve the right to adjust pricing for the Subscription Services at any time upon fourteen (14) days prior notice. Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, any price change to your membership will take effect on your next billing cycle. You must agree to the change in fees to continue to use the Services. To withdraw your consent, you will need to cancel your account by logging into your account and following the cancellation procedures there, or notifying us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Masters offers Trials that include free or discounted access to the Subscription during the specified trial period.
After the trial ends, some of the features will be not available anymore, but all the Account data and information will be still accessible. You can restore full access to all features by paying the Subscription Fee.
Cancellation of your Subscription
You may terminate your Subscription at any time. If you cancel with more than forty-eight (48) hours notice prior to your next billing cycle, you will not be charged for the next billing cycle of the Subscription Service. If you have any questions about your individual billing cycle, please log onto your account to view your billing cycle details, or contact us at email@example.com.
You will not be eligible for a prorated refund or any portion of the Subscription Fees paid for the then-current subscription cycle. Following cancellation, you will continue to have access to the Subscription Services through the end of your current billing cycle.
Masters may from time to time, either as a Masters Program (described in paragraph 7 below) or otherwise, provide certain services to Professionals and/or Clients for an additional fee that would help Professionals grow their business and enable Professionals and Clients to connect more easily.
Masters solely provides a platform for Professionals and Clients to connect and serves only as a medium to facilitate the provision of Styling Services. Masters does not provide or contract for Styling Services, and Professionals and Clients contract independently for the provision of Styling Services. Each Client is solely responsible for selecting the Professional, the Styling Services to be provided and the location at which Styling Services will be performed, whether on the premises of a Professional or at a site designated by the Client. Any decision by a Client to receive Styling Services or by a Professional to provide Styling Services is a decision made in such person's sole discretion and at their own risk. All Users understand and acknowledge that (i) the Company does not conduct background checks on Clients and (ii) any provision of Services in a private location inherently increases the risks involved for both Clients, Professionals, and any personnel of Professionals, as applicable. Each Professional must decide whether a Client is suited to such Professional's services and should exercise caution and common sense to protect the personal safety and property of such Professional and its personnel, as applicable, just as they would when interacting with anyone you don't know. NEITHER COMPANY NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES AND YOU HEREBY RELEASE THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS FROM ANY LIABILITY RELATED THERETO. COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY, OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.
Masters does not have control over the quality, suitability, reliability, timing, durability, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any Styling Services provided by Professionals nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Professionals or Clients. Masters makes no representations or warranties whatsoever with respect to Styling Services offered or provided by Professionals or requested by Clients through use of the Services, whether in public, private, or offline interactions, or about the accreditation, registration or licensing of any Professional. You understand that Masters does not routinely screen its Users, inquire into the background of its Users or attempt to verify information provided by any User. Masters does not verify or confirm that any User is whom they claim to be or is accurately representing themselves and does not verify or confirm any representations with respect to Styling Services on the Services. Masters does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information provided through the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Masters may, but is not obligated to, check the background and experience of Professionals via third-party background check services and first-party interviews, including but not limited to a verification of identity and a comprehensive criminal background check and may terminate a Professional based on any information discovered during such background checks and first party interviews.
In connection with certain services, including Styling Services, for which reservations are made available on the Services, if approved by Masters, you may require Clients to enter credit card or other payment information, and at your discretion, you may charge fees for reservations, including cancelled and missed appointments, only in accordance with any policy posted on your Masters page at the time of the Client's booking. While Masters takes what it believes to be reasonable efforts to ensure secure transmission of your information to third parties who assess and process payments, Masters is not responsible for any fees or charges assessed by third parties or any errors in the processing of payments by third parties, including any errors that result from third-party negligence, improper transmission of payment information, a Client's mistaken submission of payment information or submission of erroneous payment information. If you manually insert a Client’s credit card information and save it to such Client’s account, you represent that you have permission from each Client to save such Client’s credit card information, you take full responsibility for adhering to each Client’s preferences with respect to such credit card information and hereby agree to indemnify us for any claims arising out of failure to obtain such permission.
You agree and represent that you will honor the reservations made by Clients through the Services, or will communicate with them in advance to resolve any scheduling conflicts to the Client's and Masters' satisfaction.
By creating an account with Masters (an "Account"), registering for a Subscription and paying the applicable Subscription Fee, you are granted a right to use the Services provided by Masters subject to the restrictions set forth in these Terms of Service and any other restrictions stipulated to you by us in writing. Our registration process will ask you for information including your name and other personal and business information (including information regarding any licensing and registration applicable to you where you provide the Services). You must complete this and other processes to access any funds that you accept through the Services. In registering for an Account, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration process and as requested from time to time by Masters (such information, "Registration Data"). You further agree that, in providing such Registration Data, you will not knowingly omit or misrepresent any material facts or information and that you will promptly enter corrected or updated Registration Data via the Services, or otherwise advise us promptly in writing of any changes or updates to your Registration Data. You further consent and authorize us to verify your Registration Data as required for your use of and access to the Services. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Account of any User who provides inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, or who fails to comply with the account registration requirements.
Once you register for the Services, you shall receive a unique user identification and password in connection with your Account (collectively referred to herein as "Account IDs"). You must use your or your business' true and accurate name when signing up for an Account. You are required to select an appropriate and non-offensive Account ID. Ideally, the Account ID you choose will be a reasonably descriptive name that clearly identifies you or your business. This name will appear on your credit or debit card statement for all payments you accept using the Services. We reserve the right to remove or reclaim any Account ID if we believe, in our sole discretion, the Account ID is inappropriate, offensive or confusing or potentially violates the rights of a third party (such as when a trademark owner provides notice that an Account ID is similar to the trademark and the Account ID does not closely relate to the User's actual name or trademark rights).
You agree to maintain your Account solely for your own use. You agree that you will not allow another person to use your Account IDs to access or use the Services under any circumstances. You are solely and entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account IDs and for any charges, damages, liabilities or losses incurred or suffered as a result of your failure to do so. We are not liable for any harm caused by or related to the theft of your Account IDs, your disclosure of your Account IDs, or your authorization to allow another person to access or use the Services using your Account IDs. Furthermore, you are solely and entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your Account including any charges incurred relating to the Services. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security known to you. You acknowledge that the complete privacy of your data and messages transmitted while using the Services cannot be guaranteed.
Linking Your Account
As part of the functionality of the Services, you may link your Account with online accounts you may have with third party service providers (each such account, a "Third Party Account") by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information through the Services; or (ii) allowing Masters to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to Masters and/or grant Masters access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Masters to pay any fees or making Masters subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers.

Unless otherwise specified in these Terms of Service, all SNS Content, if any, shall be considered to be Content (as defined below) for all purposes of these Terms of Service. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third Party Accounts may be available on and through your Account on the Services. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Masters' access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content may no longer be available on and through the Services. You will have the ability to disable the connection between your Account and your Third Party Accounts at any time. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS. Masters makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement, and Masters is not responsible for any SNS Content.
You acknowledge and agree that the Services may access your e-mail address book associated with a Third Party Account and your contacts list stored on your mobile device or tablet computer solely for the purposes of identifying and informing you of those contacts who have also registered to use the Services. At your request made via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, Masters will deactivate the connection between the Masters Services and your Third Party Account any information stored on Masters' servers that was obtained through such Third Party Account will be hidden, except the username and profile picture associated with your Account.
The Services may contain links to third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by Masters. Masters has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites.

By using the Services, you expressly relieve Masters from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website.
Termination of Subscription and Accounts
Right to Terminate
Masters reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your Subscription, Account, or use of the Services, if you violate these Terms of Service, or for any reason or no reason at any time. We may also suspend your access to the Services and your Account (including the funds in your Account) if you (a) have violated the terms of these Terms of Service, any other agreement you have with Masters, including without limitation the EULA, or Masters's policies, (b) pose an unacceptable credit or fraud risk to us, (c) provide any false, incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading information or otherwise engage in fraudulent or illegal conduct or (iv) for any other reason in Masters's sole discretion.

Any funds that we are holding in custody for you at the time of closure, less any applicable fees, will be paid out to you according to your payout schedule, assuming all payout-related authentication requirements have been fulfilled (for example, you may not close your Account as a means of evading your payout schedule). If an investigation is pending at the time you close your Account, we may hold your funds as described herein. If you are later determined to be entitled to some or all of the funds in dispute, we will release those funds to you.

We will not be liable to you for compensation, reimbursement, or damages in connection with your use of the Services, or in connection with any termination or suspension of the Services.

Professionals may use the Services to offer Styling Services only through their business or personal website or software application (a "Professional Site"), and we reserve approval authority as to the implementation and use of the Services on the Professional Site. We may suspend the Services in the event we find any implementation issues with the Professional Site. Such suspension shall remain in effect until the Professional corrects any issues specified by Masters and a suspension shall not relieve a Professional of its payment obligations under these Terms of Service.

You further certify that you are duly licensed to provide Styling Services "in-home" or otherwise outside your place of business should you advertise such Styling Services on Masters.
