By entering into these Terms, and/or by accessing or using the Services, you expressly acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access or use the Services (“Users,” “you,” or “your”). If you are using the Services and agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on behalf of your organization or entity (including all personnel of such organization or entity using the Services) and to bind them to these Terms (in which case, references to “you” and “your” refer to that organization or entity).
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SERVICES. THESE TERMS CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION THAT INCLUDES A JURY TRIAL WAIVER AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER, AND A CLAUSE THAT GOVERNS THE JURISDICTION AND VENUE FOR ANY DISPUTES.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these Terms, at any time, by posting changes to this page. Your continued access to or use of the Services after such posting confirms your consent to be bound by these Terms, as amended.

- The Services
The Services enables individuals or entities (“Clients”) to engage third-party vendors (“Vendors”) for event planning and related services (“Vendor Offerings”). Vendors are the sellers and issuers of Vendor Offerings and are solely responsible to you for the care, quality, and provision of the goods and services provided. Rock Paper Coin is not an agent of any Vendor. Descriptions of Vendor Offerings are provided by the applicable Vendor. We do not investigate or vet Vendors and are not responsible for any claims associated with the description of Vendor Offerings. Clients should make whatever investigation they deem necessary or appropriate before purchasing any Vendor Offering to determine whether the Vendor is qualified to provide the advertised good or perform the advertised service and if the Vendor Offering is of the care and quality required. Clients are responsible for any information provided to a Vendor. We have no responsibility or liability for any Vendor Offering.
In order for a Client to use any Vendor Offering, the Client and Vendor may execute a separate contract for such Vendor Offering (each, a “Vendor Contract”). The parties may elect to use a template Vendor Contract made available within the Services; provided that Users acknowledge that we do not represent that any such template is suitable for a particular Vendor Offering, or for use by any User, and we disclaim any and all liability related to a User’s use of such template unless otherwise expressly stated herein. We advise each User to confirm the template suits their particular circumstances and to obtain its own legal counsel in connection with any Vendor Contract. A Client may, within the Services, elect to authorize a Vendor (i.e. event planner) to negotiate, execute, and make payment on Vendor Contracts on its behalf. In such cases, a planner will be deemed a “Client” or “User” under these Terms, as applicable, and will be subject to compliance. Vendor Contracts may be executed through the Services.
We make no representations that the Services are appropriate or available for use in any location or geographical region. You access and use the Services at your own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations in the applicable jurisdiction.

- Alerts and Notifications
By entering into these Terms or using the Services, you agree to receive communications from us, including e-mails, text messages, alerts, and other electronic communications.

- Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH US AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time such informal dispute resolution is pursued, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. Except as expressly set forth herein, any dispute, claim, or controversy (each, a “Claim”) arising out of or relating to these Terms will be settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Consumer Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the AAA, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any Claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. shall exclusively govern the interpretation and enforcement of any arbitration. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
Each party acknowledges and agrees to waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. However, each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court or the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent, or other intellectual property right. If any court or arbitrator determines that the foregoing class action waiver is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision herein shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
In addition to the severability provisions set forth above, in the event that any portion of this arbitration provision is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of this section shall be given full force and effect. Any Claim or cause of action you may have arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues, otherwise, such cause of action or claim is permanently barred. The parties specifically exclude from application to these Terms the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act.
- Force Majeure
We shall be excused from performance under these Terms to the extent we are prevented or delayed from performing, in whole or in part, due to fire, flood, earthquake, strike, war (declared or undeclared), embargo, blockade, legal prohibition, governmental action, riot, insurrection, epidemic or pandemic, damage, destruction, power outage, telephone outage, internet access provider failure, or any other similar cause beyond our control.
Except as provided above, these Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to conflict of law principles. You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within the State of Delaware for the purpose of litigating any dispute. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights herein, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms at any time without notice or consent. If any portion of these Terms is held invalid, you agree that such invalidity will not affect the validity of the remaining portions of these Terms. No waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms will constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or default or be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. You consent to us using your organization’s name and logo for marketing and publicity purposes, including without limitation displaying such name and logo on our website. These Terms represents the complete agreement between us and you regarding the subject matter set forth herein and supersedes all prior agreements and representations between us and you.
