We may review such third party-content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content in our sole discretion, for any reason or for no reason.

One of the Services is a platform where Third Parties can offer information and interact with consumers as well as sell products to consumers (a consumer purchase of a product on the Services is referred to as a “Purchase”). We may, as part of the Services, provide you with a number of methods by which you can receive advisor or other services and/or communicate with Third Parties.

If you subscribe to the Services as a Third Party (an “Advisor”), you may be offered optional premium services (“Premium Services”). If you subscribe to any Premium Service, you agree to pay us the subscription or usage fee indicated for such Premium Service (“Initial Fee”) for the initial period indicated at sign up (“Initial Period”). We will charge your provided payment account (“Payment Account”) the Initial Fee on the date you subscribe for a Premium Service. You agree that we may retain the Payment Account and will charge the then-current monthly subscription or usage fee (“Monthly Recurring Fee”) for the Premium Service upon the expiration of the Initial Period. We will continue to charge your Payment Account monthly thereafter in the then-current amount of the Monthly Recurring Fee until you cancel the Premium Service.
To cancel a Premium Service, you must send us a written notice of cancellation. We must receive such written notice at least thirty (30) days in advance of the date on which you wish to make the cancellation effective.

The Services may provide a mechanism whereby a consumer looking to engage a Third Party may select an Advisor for a consultation or other type of engagement by reviewing the Advisor’s availability and scheduling an appointment or consultation (a “Transaction”) for a pre-set amount of time and at a rate displayed on the scheduler. Upon engaging the Advisor for a Transaction using the scheduler, we will collect full payment for the Transaction from the consumer. After selection and payment, the Advisor will initiate contact with the consumer to complete the Transaction at the time and for the duration indicated on the scheduler. We will collect a transaction fee from the Advisor for each Transaction (“Transaction Fee”) and will pass on the remainder of the Advisor’s compensation to the Advisor, pursuant to the terms and conditions of these Terms. To the extent permissible under applicable law, you agree that any Transaction shall contain the terms listed in this Section 7.

BE ADVISED, HOWEVER, THAT AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT, DOCTOR-PATIENT, OR OTHER SIMILAR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CONSUMERS AND ADVISORS MAY BE FORMED BY USING THE SERVICES.

We collect payment for Transactions from the consumer and, after subtracting the Transaction Fee, hold the balance in the Advisor’s Account (with collective, undistributed balances earned throughout a calendar month referred to as the “Advisor’s Earnings”). Between the 1st and 10th day of each calendar month, we will deposit Advisor’s Earnings for the previous month to a bank account or other payment account for the Advisor on file with us.
We may process Purchases in one of two ways, as described below. The manner in which we process Purchases will be indicated on your Account. First, we may collect payments for Purchases directly from the consumer and, after subtracting a purchase fee for each Purchase (“Purchase Fee”), hold the balance in the Third Party’s Account (with collective, undistributed balances earned throughout a calendar month referred to as the “Third Party’s Earnings”. If we use this method of payment processing, between the 1st and 10th day of each calendar month, we will deposit the Third Party’s Earnings for the previous month to a bank account or other payment account for the Third Party on file with us.
The second manner in which we may process Purchases is by linking your bank account or other payment account directly to the consumer via our ecommerce platform such that you directly receive any purchase price for the Purchase. If we process Purchases in this manner, we will either (i) invoice you between the 1st and 10th day of each calendar month for the Purchase Fees due for Purchases made from you in the previous month (“Purchase Fees Due”) or (ii) charge your payment account on file for the Purchase Fees Due, and you authorize us to process such charge in accordance herewith.
The Transaction Fee and Purchase Fee (collectively, “Fees”) will be indicated when an Advisor or Third Party creates an Account and/or during each Transaction or Purchase (collectively, a “Deal”). We may change Fees at any time with notice to you, either by emailing your address on file with us, posting to your Account, or updating the pages indicating Fees for each Deal.
If a dispute arises between a consumer and a Third Party relating to a Purchase or a Transaction (a “Dispute”), the consumer and Third Party may wish to decide the dispute between the two of them. Within 48 hours of the completion of the Transaction or two weeks from completion of a Purchase, however, the consumer may dispute the Deal from the consumer’s Account (a “Resolution Center Dispute”) if the Dispute relates to one of the following issues: (i) the Third Party did not call the consumer at the scheduled time; (ii) the call or consultation was shorter than previously agreed-upon; (iii) the Third Party did not adequately answer the consumer’s questions; (iv) the consumer ordered a product that was not received; and (v) the consumer received the wrong product(s).
If a consumer files a Resolution Center Dispute, you, whether you are a consumer or Third Party, authorize us to review the Deal and grant us full authority to decide the Resolution Center Dispute in our sole discretion. You agree that our decision on any Resolution Center Dispute is final and non-appealable, subject to applicable law. If we decide the Resolution Center Dispute in favor of the consumer, we may require the Third Party to refund some or all of the compensation received by such Third Party for the Deal. If you are a Third Party, you authorize us, to charge your Payment Account to the extent any refunds due under this Section exceed any Earnings.
IF A CONSUMER FILES A RESOLUTION CENTER DISPUTE, YOU SUBMIT SUCH DISPUTE TO US TO ARBITRATE IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR INTERNAL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES AND ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT OUR RESOLUTION TO THE DISPUTE IS FINAL AND NON-APPEALABLE, AND THAT A JUDGMENT FOR ANY AWARD ISSUED THEREUNDER MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION.
