By using the Service, you agree that you are at least the legal age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside or, if you are not, that you have obtained parental or guardian consent. The Service is not targeted for use by children under the age of eighteen, and if you are under the age of eighteen, you are not allowed to use the Service.
If we make any material changes, and you have registered to use the Service, we will also send an email to you at the last email address you provided to us. Your continued use of the Service after our provision of notice to you will constitute your affirmative acceptance to the modified Terms. If you do not agree to, or cannot comply with, the Terms as amended, you must stop using the Service.
THESE TERMS AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES, AND OBLIGATIONS, GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, ARE LEGALLY BINDING, LIMIT PAPA’S LIABILITY TO YOU, REQUIRE YOU TO INDEMNIFY PAPA, AND TO SETTLE CERTAIN DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SERVICE AFFIRMS YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OR ANY FUTURE MODIFICATIONS OR AMENDMENTS TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE OUR SERVICE.
These Terms are written in the English language. We do not guarantee the accuracy of any translated versions of these Terms. To the extent any translated versions of these Terms conflict with the English language version, the English language version of these Terms shall control.
PAPA IS NOT A MEDICAL PROVIDER AND DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL OR EMERGENCY SERVICES OF ANY KIND. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
Papa Pals and Clients
The Service provides a platform to connect individuals seeking to obtain certain services (“Clients”) and independent third-party contractors seeking to provide such services (“Papa Pals”). Papa Pals are not employees of. Both Clients and Papa Pals are “Users” of the Service.
Papa only provides a platform for enabling connections between Users through use of the Service. Beyond this, Papa does not provide services to Clients. Instead, Papa enables Papa Pals, which are independent contractors, to provide services to Clients. Although Papa performs certain background screenings on Papa Pals and applicants, neither Papa, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, assumes any responsibility for any of the acts or omissions of any Papa Pal or Client, such as property damage or bodily injury that may result in connection with the services a Papa Pals may perform for a Client. Papa does not endorse any products or recommendations by Papa Pals communicated with you. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Papa Pal or any information provided to you by any Papa Pal via the Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risk associated herewith.

WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICE (OR ANY PART THEREOF) WILL BE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, OR ERROR-FREE, NOR THAT ANY PARTICULAR SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE, WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE SERVICE, AND YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO (A) OBTAIN AND PAY FOR ANY SOFTWARE, HARDWARE AND SERVICES (INCLUDING INTERNET CONNECTIVITY) NEEDED TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE AND (B) ENSURE THAT ANY SOFTWARE, HARDWARE, AND SERVICES THAT YOU USE WILL FUNCTION CORRECTLY WITH THE SERVICE.

FURTHER, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR FROM ANY INFORMATION OR MATERIALS ON THE SERVICE. YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SERVICE IS TO STOP USING THE SERVICE. OUR MAXIMUM LIABILITY FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE SHALL BE THE TOTAL AMOUNT, IF ANY, PAID BY YOU TO US TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW FOR LIMITATIONS ON CERTAIN IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF CERTAIN DAMAGES; SOLELY TO THE EXTENT THAT SUCH LAW APPLIES TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS. IF APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF A PARTY’S LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY SUCH PARTY’S NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, OR ANY OTHER MATTER, THEN SUCH PARTY’S LIABILITY WILL NOT BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED TO THE EXTENT OF SUCH PROHIBITION UNDER SUCH APPLICABLE LAW.
If you are a California resident, you agree to consciously waive all claims, both known and unknown that may be later discovered, to the maximum extent permitted by law, including but not limited to that permitted by California Civil Code Section 1542, which states “[a] general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
Except to the extent prohibited under applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Papa and its officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses, including attorneys’ fees and costs, that may arise from or in connection with (a) your use of, or activities in connection with, the Service, including use of any good, product, or service purchased through the Service, (b) violation of these Terms by you, and (c) the acts or omissions of any other User. If you fail to promptly indemnify and defend a covered claim, Papa shall have the right to defend itself, and in such case, you shall promptly reimburse Papa for all of its associated costs and expenses. Papa reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to your indemnification.
Account, Password, and Security
You may only create and hold one account for your personal use. You are the sole authorized user of your account and agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself in connection with your account. You are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of any password and account number provided by you or Papa for accessing the Service. You are solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. Papa may assume that any communications it receives through your account have been made by you unless Papa receives notice otherwise. Papa expressly disclaims any liability from misuse of your account. Should you suspect that any unauthorized party may be using your password or account or you suspect any breach of security, contact Papa immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will not sell, transfer, or assign your account or any account rights. Accounts may only be set up by the individual that is the subject of the account, and who is of the age of majority. We generally do not review accounts for authenticity and are not responsible for any unauthorized accounts that may appear on the Service. For any dispute as to account creation or authenticity, we shall have the sole right but are not obligated, to resolve such dispute as we determine appropriate in our sole and exclusive discretion, with or without notice.
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE BY ANYONE USING YOUR PASSWORD AND IDENTIFICATION WHETHER OR NOT SUCH ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE IS ACTUALLY AUTHORIZED BY YOU, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL COMMUNICATIONS, TRANSMISSIONS, ORDERS, PAYMENTS, FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS, AND OTHER OBLIGATIONS INCURRED THROUGH SUCH ACCESS OR USE.
Links to Other Websites
The Service may provide links to other third-party websites (“Linked Sites”). Papa has not reviewed all of the information on the Linked Sites, does not maintain Linked Sites, and cannot control the completeness, accuracy, or security of the content contained on any Linked Site. The content of, including materials and information contained on, any Linked Site is solely the responsibility of the provider of that Linked Site. Papa is not responsible for the contents of any such Linked Site, and the inclusion of any link to a Linked Site does not imply endorsement by Papa of the Linked Site. The views and opinions expressed in Linked Sites are those of the authors or third parties and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of Papa. If you decide to access any Linked Site, you do this entirely at your own risk. References to any names, marks, products, or services of any third parties, third-party information, or Linked Sites are provided solely as a convenience to you, and do not constitute or imply an endorsement, sponsorship, recommendation of, or affiliation with, the third party or its products and services. Papa makes no representation or warranty as to any Linked Site content, products, or services, and you agree that Papa shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such third-party content, products, or services available on or through any Linked Site or similar resource.
AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE SHALL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR SPECIAL LOSS, OR OTHER DAMAGE, WHETHER ARISING FROM NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, DEFAMATION, INFRINGEMENT OF COPYRIGHT, OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, CAUSED BY THE EXHIBITION, DISTRIBUTION, OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY INFORMATION OR CONTENT CONTAINED WITHIN THESE THIRD-PARTY SERVICES.
Third Party Applications
In certain situations, Papa acts as a conduit between members of the Service and third-party ride-sharing apps like Lyft or Uber, as well as third-party food and grocery delivery apps. In such situations, you authorize Papa to act on your behalf to communicate with the designated driver, delivery person, and service (via voice, text message or email) to vet them and their equipment to make sure they and their vehicles meet your transportation or food/grocery delivery requirements and specifications, and to aid in locating your position for the driver or delivery person, and to advise the driver or delivery person to correct his course if required, to suggest (or approve or disapprove) alternate items or groceries associated with your order for food or groceries, or for any other reason Papa deems appropriate. You further authorize Papa as your agent and on your behalf, to order groceries, to order food, to select and approve (or disapprove) alternate groceries and food, to monitor your complete ride from start to finish and if Papa deems it appropriate, to communicate with the designated driver or you to make sure the designated driver is meeting your specified conditions and requirements. During this phase of the ride, you authorize Papa to communicate with persons you designate to let them know the initiation, progress and conclusion or your ride.
Papa is not responsible for the services provided by any third-party application. If you decide to use any third-party application service, including in connection with Papa, you do this entirely at your own risk. Papa will not vet foods or groceries to ensure they are safe or otherwise consistent with any health, allergy, religious, or other dietary requirement, and you are solely responsible for ensuring the safety of any food or groceries you receive from any third-party service (even if delivery and ordering are coordinated through Papa). Papa makes no representation or warranty as to any third-party application, products, or services, and you agree that Papa shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such third-party application, products, or services made available to you by Papa solely for your convenience. We recommend you review the terms and policies of any third-party applications prior to your use of or access to the same.
Payment Terms and Fees
Certain features of the Service, including, without limitation, subscribing to a membership or the placing or receipt of service orders, may require you to make certain payments, including commissions or other fees. Any fees that Papa may charge you for your use of or access to the Service are due immediately when charged by Papa and are non-refundable. This no refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate your usage, our decision to terminate your usage, disruption caused to our Service either planned, accidental or intentional, or any reason whatsoever. Papa reserves the right to determine and change any payment term, rate, mechanism, or structure at any time with notice to you. Papa, in its sole discretion, may offer credits or refunds on a case-by-case basis.
Fees will be displayed in United States Dollars. By confirming your purchase at the end of the checkout process, you agree to accept and pay the fees as well as all applicable taxes and currency conversion fees.
Papa may from time to time offer special promotions or offers. Promotional codes, discounts, and offers (“Promotions”) are limited in nature and may expire or be discontinued with or without notice. Promotions are void where prohibited by law. Promotions may not be copied, sold, or otherwise transferred. They are not redeemable for cash and are subject to cancellation or change at any time for any reason without notice. We reserve the right in our discretion to impose conditions on the offering of any Promotions. Other Promotions, including sweepstakes, contests, raffles, surveys, or games, may be governed by rules that are separate from or supplement these Terms. If you participate in any Promotions, please review the applicable rules. If the specific rules for a Promotion conflict with these Terms, the Promotion rules will govern.
Papa may use third party services to process payments, such as Stripe, which have their own separate terms of service. While Papa will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of all payment information such as credit cards or bank account numbers, Papa expressly disclaims any liability for any damage that may result should any third parties gain access to such information, and you agree to hold Papa harmless for any damages that may result therefrom.
You represent and warrant that you have the right to use any credit card or other means of payment that you provide to us. All billing information you provide to us must be current, complete, truthful, and accurate. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers, and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. Providing any untruthful or inaccurate information is a breach of these Terms and may result in the cancellation of your order. Prior to accepting an order, we may also request additional information from you. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any transaction. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel an order for any reason including limitations on availability, inaccuracies, or errors in service or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. If your order is canceled after your credit card (or other payment account) has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card (or other applicable payment account) in the amount of the charge. We will attempt to contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. Papa may request a pre-authorization for some orders placed online with a credit or debit card. This pre-authorization will not be billed to you; however, your card issuer may hold this amount for a short period. Your card issuer determines the length of time the pre-authorization is held. We do this to ensure that the card details are still valid and that you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction. We are not responsible for any fees or charges that your bank or credit card issuer may apply.
If you are a California resident, in accordance with Cal. Civ. Code §1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112 Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210 or (916) 445-1254.
Termination and Suspension
Papa may terminate or suspend your right to use the Service at any time and for any reason. Without limitation, Papa may terminate or suspend your right to use the Service at its sole discretion, without refunding any unused fees or credit on your account, if you violate any term of this Agreement or any policy of Papa posted on the Service, or if Papa otherwise finds that you have engaged in unlawful or inappropriate behavior in connection with your use of the Service. In addition to terminating or suspending your account, Papa reserves the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation pursuing civil, criminal, and injunctive redress. Even after your right to use the Service is terminated or suspended, this Agreement will remain enforceable against you regarding your prior use of the Service.
Consent to Receive Transactional Calls and Messages
By providing your mobile number to us, you agree to be contacted by or on behalf of Papa at the mobile number you have provided, including via phone call or text message, to receive transactional communications relating to the Service (such as to update on status of arrival, timing, and to confirm orders and use of the Service), and you recognize and acknowledge that text messaging is an inherently less secure of a method of communication and agree to receive text messages regardless of the level of security associated with them. Message and data rates may apply. For help regarding the communications, we exchange with you using your phone number, contact us directly.

Note that we may confirm your opt-out by text message. If you subscribe to multiple types of text messages from us, we may unsubscribe you from the Service that most recently sent you a message or respond to your STOP message by texting you a request to identify the Service(s) you wish to stop. Keep in mind that if you stop receiving marketing text messages from us, you may not receive important and helpful information and reminders.

If you are not sure if Papa has control over the allegedly infringed content, please obtain legal representation before contacting us. To be effective under the DMCA, any notification of claimed infringement must be in a written communication that includes substantially the following which must include a certification made under penalty of perjury:
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed, as well as information sufficient for Papa to determine the legitimacy of the signature and the identity of the signatory;
Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if a single notification covers multiple copyrighted works at a single online site, a representative list of such works at that site, including citation to the applicable copyright registrations where available;
Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Papa to locate the material, including a timestamp and visible identification of the material in a screenshot or comparable medium, with all metadata intact, as well as a hyperlink or URL to the website or online content at issue;
Information reasonably sufficient to permit Papa to contact the complaining party, including an email address, telephone number, and, if available, physical mail address;

Arbitration of All Claims on an Individual Basis
You and Papa agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Papa that relate in any way to your participation in, use, or access of the Service, including but not limited to services provided by a Papa Pal, or the actions of Papa or its agents, shall be resolved through confidential, final and binding arbitration rather than in court, with the exception of any dispute relating to the enforcement or validity of intellectual property rights. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to arbitrate.

Specifically, if a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim or a particular request for a remedy (such as a request for public injunctive relief), then that claim or that remedy request (and only that claim or that remedy request) may be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court, subject to your and Papa’s right to appeal the court’s decision. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and held in Broward County, Florida or another mutually agreed location.
The arbitrator’s award shall be confidential, final, and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

You hereby submit to the jurisdiction and venue of said courts and consent to service of process by email in any legal proceeding.
You and Papa agree that if any portion of these Terms is found illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be construed to be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law and the remainder of the Terms will remain valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
