TERMS & CONDITIONS
last edition: 09 April 2022
Welcome to BEAUTAP, a website located at www.BEAUTAP.com (the “Site”) and operated by BEAUTAP Inc., (“BEAUTAP”, “us”, “our”, and “we”). BEAUTAP provides the Site and mobile applications (the “Applications”) to facilitate on-demand and in-home beauty services (collectively, with the Site and Applications, the “Services”). Your use of the Services is also subject to any additional terms, conditions, and policies that we separately post on the Services or provide to you, and any agreements that you have separately executed with BEAUTAP (“Supplemental Terms”), including without limitation our COVID-19 Safety Policy. All Supplemental Terms are incorporated by reference into this Agreement. Additionally, for the avoidance of doubt, if you are a service provider who has executed a Membership Services Agreement (“Member Agreement”), the terms of that Member Agreement will control and supersede this Agreement with respect to the subject matter of such Member Agreement. To the extent there is any conflict between this Agreement and the Supplemental Terms, the Supplemental Terms will control with respect to the subject matter of such agreement.
THIS AGREEMENT INCLUDES A CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND A WAIVER OF JURY TRIALS, AND REQUIRES BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL, NON-CLASS BASIS TO RESOLVE MOST DISPUTES BETWEEN US.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE THE CONNECTION OF SERVICE PROVIDERS AND CLIENTS FOR THE PURPOSES OF ARRANGING IN-HOME BEAUTY SERVICES WITH EACH OTHER THROUGH THE SERVICES, BUT YOU AGREE THAT BEAUTAP HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY TO YOU RELATED TO ANY APPOINTMENT OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT. BEAUTAP CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE INFORMATION OR CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS (OTHER THAN THE ARRANGEMENT AND DISPLAY OF SUCH CONTENT) OR THE CONDITION, LEGALITY, SAFETY, OR SUITABILITY OF ANY APPOINTMENTS OR ACCOMMODATIONS. BEAUTAP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL APPOINTMENTS AND ACCOMMODATIONS. ACCORDINGLY, ANY APPOINTMENTS WILL BE MADE OR ACCEPTED AT A USER’S OWN RISK, AND, AMONG OTHER THINGS, CLIENTS MUST SATISFY THEMSELVES WITH ANY SERVICE PROVIDER AND THEIR SERVICE PROVIDER’S CREDENTIALS, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS MUST SATISFY THEMSELVES WITH CLIENTS AND THE CLIENTS'S ACCOMODATIONS. USERS SHOULD NOT COMPLETE AND SHOULD IMMEDIATELY CANCEL APPOINTMENTS IF THEY FEEL UNSAFE OR UNCOMFORTABLE WITH ANY CONDITIONS RELATING TO THE APPOINTMENT IN ANY WAY. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR ABILITY TO OBTAIN IN-HOME BEAUTY SERVICES THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICES DOES NOT ESTABLISH BEAUTAP AS A PROVIDER OF BEAUTY SERVICES.
Account Creation. To use certain features of the Services, you must register for an account with us (your "Account”) and provide certain information about yourself as prompted by the registration form. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You agree not to create an account on behalf of someone other than yourself. You further agree that you should not maintain more than one account at any given time. You may delete your Account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions in the Services. We may suspend or terminate your Account in accordance with the section entitled “Term and Termination.” You agree not to create an account or use our Services if you have been previously removed by BEAUTAP, or if you have been previously barred from any of the Services.
Account Responsibilities. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use, of your Account or any other breach of security. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
Booking Service Providers. You must provide us with a valid credit card (issued by Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by our payment provider) (“Payment Provider”) as a condition to making an appointment with a service provider, including free promotional hair, nail, and makeup services BEAUTAP may arrange from time to time as part of the Services.
Cancellation of Appointments. You may cancel any appointment in accordance with our cancellation policy set forth at http://BEAUTAP.com/faq/. We reserve the right to cancel free promotional Services at any time for any reason. No credits or promotional value adjustments will be made in the event we cancel a free promotional Service. If the service provider cancels an appointment for any reason, you will receive a refund, unless BEAUTAP is able to book another service provider acceptable to you during the time scheduled for your appointment. If service providers cancel or terminate a paid appointment for any reason, we may, in our sole and reasonable discretion, issue you a refund of any fees prepaid for such an appointment.
Supplemental COVID-19 Cancellation Policy. In addition to the cancellation rights set forth in the BEAUTAP cancellation policy set forth at http://BEAUTAP.com/faq/, you must cancel an appointment through the Services if you have a cough, fever, or other symptoms of COVID-19, if you have tested positive or COVID-19, or if you feel unwell and may do so at any time until the start time of the appointment without any penalty. BEAUTAP reserves the right to revise or update this supplemental cancellation policy at any time, including to cover other pandemics or illnesses.
Both clients and service providers should also be aware that the other party to an appointment is required to cancel the appointment in accordance with this Supplemental COVID-19 Cancellation Policy and may do so at any time. BEAUTAP cannot guarantee replacements for such cancellations and does not take any responsibility or liability for, or in connection with, any cancelled appointments or any results thereof.
If BEAUTAP discovers that you, whether a client or a service provider, has abused this supplemental cancellation policy, BEAUTAP has the right to, immediately, without notice, and in its sole discretion, suspend or terminate your Account.
As the recipient of in-home beauty services provided by service providers, you agree to assume certain responsibilities. When you book an appointment, you agree to comply with any rules or requirements of the service provider applicable to the service purchased and that you are made aware of, including as part of any confirmation email (the “Requirements”).
Whether or not there are Requirements, you agree to: (a) create in your home (or other space where our service providers are invited to perform their services) a safe, clean, and reasonably comfortable workspace that is free of conditions that would make it difficult for our service providers to perform their jobs (all as determined in each of our service provider’s sole discretion); (b) provide a workspace that has access to bathroom facilities and is in close proximity to an electrical outlet and a sink with hot and cold running water; and (c) refrain, and cause other individuals present in your household to refrain, from any speech, conduct, or personal displays that a reasonable person would find offensive, intimidating, hostile, harassing, indecent or abusive while our service providers are present. If you have pets, you agree to confine all your pets to a room where our service providers will not be working. If you have a child or children under the age of 13, you agree that childcare (provided by someone other than you and our service provider) will be present. This is important as the service provider will have equipment that can harm a child and our service provider will be focused on you. During the COVID-19 pandemic, you agree that, to the extent possible, no other individuals will be present in the space for the entirety of your appointment. Service providers reserve the right to terminate or refuse to provide their services to anyone at any time in the event you do not fulfill your responsibilities as set forth in this Section or if a service provider feels unsafe or uncomfortable with the in-home work environment or conditions for any reason. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that service providers are not employees or agents of BEAUTAP, but are independent contractors who operate business enterprises separate and distinct from BEAUTAP.
COVID-19 Safety Policy. Without limiting the requirements and responsibilities set forth above, all recipients acknowledge and agree that the Requirements include a recipient's responsibility for taking all appropriate health, safety and hygiene measures to protect yourself and any service provider from the spread or potential spread of infectious diseases or conditions, or any other unhealthy, unsafe, or unsanitary conditions, including without limitation by following all steps set forth in BEAUTAP's COVID-19 Safety Policy set forth at https://BEAUTAP.zendesk.com (the “Safety Policy”). BEAUTAP may update or supplement this Safety Policy from time to time, including to respond to or incorporate additional or updated guidance, so you must check the Safety Policy frequently and comply with the most recent version of the Safety Policy at the time of your appointment. For more information on how to keep your home safe, please review the WHO and/or CDC's guidance. While the Safety Policy sets the minimum requirements for the receipt of in-home beauty service appointments made through the Services, there is no substitute for common sense, and BEAUTAP cannot, and does, not guarantee any services or conditions or take any responsibility or liability for (a) a user's failure to provide safe, healthy, and sanitary services or accommodations for the services, (b) unsafe, unhealthy, or unsanitary conditions even If the Safety Policy is followed, or (c) any spread or potential spread of infectious diseases or conditions or any other unhealthy, unsafe, or unsanitary conditions resulting from use of the Services in any manner.

Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with BEAUTAP and limits the way you can seek relief from us.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with BEAUTAP, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or BEAUTAP may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND BEAUTAP HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN THE COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and BEAUTAP are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to limited review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of California. All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to:
Severability. Except as provided in the “Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief” subsection, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with BEAUTAP.
Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if BEAUTAP makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing BEAUTAP at the following address: 468 North Camden Dr Suite 200 PMB, 97931 Beverly Hills, CA 90210, USA.

Any changes to this Agreement will be effective upon posting on the Services, or the date identified in the email or notice (if later). You are responsible for providing us with your most current e-mail address. If the last e-mail address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice. Continued use of our Services following notice of such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.

The communications between you and BEAUTAP may take place via electronic means, whether you visit the Services or send BEAUTAP e-mails, or whether BEAUTAP posts notices on the Services or communicates with you via e-mail.

Questions, Complaints, Claims. If you have any questions, complaints or claims with respect to the Services, please contact us at:
Choice of Law. This Agreement is made under and will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
Notice. Where BEAUTAP requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing BEAUTAP with your most current e-mail address. If the last e-mail address you provided to BEAUTAP is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by the Agreement, BEAUTAP’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to BEAUTAP at the following address: Beautap Inc. 468 North Camden Dr Suite 200 PMB, 97931 Beverly Hills, CA 90210, USA. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by BEAUTAP by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first-class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Services. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word including means including without limitation. If any provision of this Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Agreement will be unimpaired, and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.

This Agreement, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without our prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
