1. Approval of the Terms and Conditions of this Agreement
2. 2FORKIDS Information-Sharing Platform
2FORKIDS is a proprietary, online information-sharing platform designed to support co-parenting individuals and families of children living in split homes. 2FORKIDS provides tools enabling parents and families to communicate with one another, share materials and information about custodial arrangements, expenses, schedules, schools, sports, extra-curricular activities, health information, appointments and other relevant information (“Child Related Information”), with a view to help them coordinate and organize their children’s shared lives.
The Site allows a parent or legal guardian (“Parent”) of one (or more) minor child (each, a “Minor” and collectively, “Minors”) to create a family page (“Family Page”) centered around such Minor(s), where such Parent (the “Account Creator”) may post photos and share Child Related Information about the Minor(s) with other Users whom the Account Creator may invite to join the Family Page via e-mail, by sending a link through the Site to such persons (each, an “Invited User”). An invited User may be the other Parent or another individual of the Account Creator’s choosing. The Account Creator and all Invited Users who have joined the Family Page become a “Family Group.” All Users within the Family Group will be able to interact directly with one another via message board or chat room on the Family Page.
Prior to being allowed to create and/or access a Family Page, each Account Creator and each Invited User will need to register with 2FORKIDS as described below. Access to the Application and its consultation requires the following minimum configuration: Android from version 4.4 and on IOS from version 9.
3. Service Intended for Personal Use
The Service is intended for the personal use of the Users and not for any commercial use.
4. Eligibility to Use the Service and/or Create a Family Page
By accessing the Service, you hereby represent and warrant to us as follows: (i) you are of legal age in the jurisdiction in which you reside (but in no event younger than eighteen 18 years old), and that you have the right to enter into an enforceable contract in such jurisdiction; (ii) you are an individual and not a business (except with the prior written consent of 2FORKIDS); (iii) all of the personal information you submit to 2FORKIDS is and will remain at all relevant times accurate and truthful; and (iv) you agree to take full legal responsibility for your access to, and use of, the Site and the Service.
In addition to the other pre-requirements to the use of the Service, if you want to be an Account Creator and create a Family Page, you must be a Parent vested with sufficient parental authority or guardianship to permit you to lawfully do so and otherwise use the Service under the applicable laws of your jurisdiction.
By creating a Family Page, you hereby represent and warrant to us that you have all necessary parental rights and authority under applicable law to (a) create a Family Page centered around your Minor(s); (b) post, share, publish or otherwise make available any content on the Family Page (including photos) that includes personal information belonging to such Minor(s); and (c) lawfully grant us your parental consent hereunder with respect to such Minor(s).
We reserve the right to take steps to verify your identity and relationship with regard to any applicable Minor featured on our Site during the initial registration process and at any time, in our sole discretion.
To the extent that you are an Account Creator, you must also be capable and willing to comply with such requirements and terms and conditions as may be imposed by any applicable third-party online payment platform available through the Site, which are discussed in the Section entitled “Subscription Payments” below.
5. Transactions are completely secure through the use of Apple Pay (for Users of Apple terminals) and Stripe (for users of Android terminals). Stripe encrypts data using SSL protocol to ensure transaction security. Apple Pay uses a stand-alone encryption solution, details of which can be found at: https://www.apple.com/en/apple-pay/.
5. User Account and Family Page
Before being able to use part of the Service, you will be asked to register with 2FORKIDS, create a user account and provide certain personal information to us, such as your name, physical address, phone number and a valid e-mail address (“User Account”). Any User of the Service must register a User Account with us. Then, additional steps may be required depending on whether you are an Account Creator or an Invited User.
If you are an Account Creator, you will also need to provide additional information, including, without limitation, as relating to the Minor(s) to be featured on the Family Page, the relationship between you and such Minor(s), and your giving us your full parental consent to the creation of a Family Page centered around such Minor(s) and to the posting of or uploading of content on the Site that includes the personal information of your Minor by any Invited User in your Family Group.
If you are an Account Creator, you will be permitted to create a personalized Family Page on the Site, where you will be able to (i) upload one or more photos; (ii) provide certain information about you and your family, including Child Related Information; (iii) invite the other Parent and/or others to join your Family Group; and (iv) interact directly with the Invited Users in your Family Group. You will also be prompted to register an account with our payment processor for the payment of our monthly subscription, as discussed in the Section entitled “Subscription Payments” below.
If you are an Invited User, you will be permitted to post or publish content on the Family Page but you will not be allowed to invite others to join the Family Group, modify or delete content.
The Family Page and the Family Group are at all times under the control of the Account Creator, which means that any content posted or published on the Family Page by any User in the Family Group may be modified or deleted at any time by the Account Creator. The Account Creator also retains the right to terminate the Family Page and/or remove any Invited User from the Family Group. Any removed User from a Family Group will no longer have access to the Family Page and/or to any content thereon, including any content originated by such removed Invited User.
The creation of an Invited User Account is free of charge. Each User, including each Account Creator is limited to one User Account. All confirmations and other communications from 2FORKIDS relating to the Service will be effected via e-mail. You are obligated to ensure that you provide us with a valid and current e-mail address at all times. You are also solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User Account, login credentials and passwords, and for all use of the same, whether or not you have authorized access and/or use of your User Account. We do not guarantee that the Site will be accessible from anywhere, available at all times and/or compatible with all devices or mobile carriers.
We reserve the right to refuse access to the Service to any User who does not meet our eligibility conditions, who does not comply with this Agreement or whose User Account is not in good standing, in each instance, as determined by us in our sole and absolute discretion.
6. Subscription Payments
Prior to being able to use the payment portal, each Account Creator will need to register an account with our payment processor. All payment transactions will be subject to the specific terms and conditions included in a separate agreement to be entered by and between the Account Creator and such payment processor.
We cannot be responsible or liable for any dispute between an Account Creator and such third-party payment processor, including, without limitation, if an attempted payment on the payment portal fails to complete because the transaction is denied by the Account Creator’s debit card, credit card or financial institution due to a variety of reasons such as, without limitation, the Account Creator has insufficient funds in their account, the transaction is above their credit limit or overdraft protection of their account, their payment account information is inaccurate or outdated, or otherwise.
The Account Creator is solely responsible, and in no circumstances can 2FORKIDS be liable, for any overdraft charges, late fees and other fees and/or penalties assessed by an Account Creator’s financial institution in connection with any improper use of an Account Creator’s cards or bank account in connection with the Service.
If an Account Creator does not wish to keep their payment account active, it is their responsibility to deactivate it.
No payments processed on the payment portal are refundable except that, if you are an Account Creator, you will be entitled to a full refund of any paid subscription for any given month provided (i) y are prevented from using the Service due to a technical issue, which our support team is not able to resolve using commercially reasonable efforts; (ii) you have received notification that your account is terminated by us without any fault on your part at any time during such month; (iii) you have made duplicate purchases by mistake, or (iv) we opt to terminate or interrupt the Site or the Service, either temporarily or permanently at any time during such month. We will notify you via e-mail if you are eligible for a refund and promptly arrange for such refund through our payment portal.
8. User Content
Once you have created a User Account, you will be able to upload pictures and photos on your Family Page, post and publish Child Related Information or other materials that you are willing to share on the Family Page, and communicate with other Users in your Family Group (all of which shall collectively be referred to as “User Content”). You understand that you have a responsibility to ensure that your User Content is in compliance with our Code of Conduct (as defined below) and, also that you have sufficient legal rights in such User Content, in each instance, before submitting the same to the Site; in each instance in order to avoid potential adverse consequences such as the suspension or termination of your User privileges with 2FORKIDS, and in some situations where you have violated applicable laws and/or other persons’ legal rights, the start of legal proceedings against you. For example, you do not have the right to upload photos featuring other people, post other people’s copyrighted or trademarked materials, etc., in each instance, without their prior consent.
To the extent that you are and remain in compliance with applicable laws regarding your User Content, including but not limited to compliance with applicable intellectual property laws, your User Content will remain your property at all times whether or not posted on the Site. You understand and agree, however, to grant us a non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable and sublicensable license to all of your User Content, so that we may use, reproduce, distribute, display, publish, or otherwise make available the same through the Site.
You are legally responsible for (i) the content that you post, upload or publish on the Site and/or in connection with the Service, including such public content that you generate outside of the Site (such as on other websites, blogs, articles, etc.); and (ii) for your interactions with other Users.
The Account Creator will also be responsible for the content posted or published on the Family Page by any Invited User.
You understand that the Family Page and the Family Group are at all times under the control of the Account Creator, which means that any User Content posted or published on the Family Page by any User in the Family Group may be modified or deleted at any time by the Account Creator. The Account Creator also retains the right to terminate the Family Page and/or remove any Invited User from the Family Group.
You further understand and agree that we reserve the right to remove any of your User Content from the Site at any time, without saving any back-up thereof, for any reason or no reason and without prior notice to you.
9. Minors’ Personal Information; Removal Upon Parent’s Request
As a condition to registering as a Parent of a Minor on our Site, to using the Service, and/or posting or publishing personal information or other content involving a Minor on our Site, we require that any such Parent User provide us with such Parent’s full parental consent and authorization to each of the foregoing.
Each Parent User hereby represents and warrants to 2FORKIDS that such User has all necessary legal rights under applicable law to (a) use the Service in accordance with its intended use hereunder, (b) post, share, publish or otherwise make available any content on the Family Page (including photos) that consists of personal information belonging to their Minor(s); and (c) to lawfully grant such User’s parental consent hereunder with respect to each Minor featured on the Family Page.
We reserve the right to remove any personal information belonging to a Minor and posted or published on our Site by any User upon the request from a person claiming to be vested with parental authority over such Minor, without being obligated to investigate the validity of such claim. 2FORKIDS does not have the resources, the rights nor the expertise to conduct investigations into the lives of its Users and can only rely on information provided to it by you in good faith. To the extent any controversy arises about the extent of your rights in connection with any Minor, we may elect to terminate the Family Page and/or any associated User Account as a precautionary measure against any potential violations of law and/or suspicions or allegations of any impropriety on the part of any User.
We also require the Account Creator and any applicable User to take full responsibility for (x) any violation of a Minor’s legal rights, including rights of privacy and publicity, in connection with the Account Creator and/or any Invited User’s conduct, access to the Site and/or use of the Service, and (y) any misrepresentation to us regarding the extent of such Account Creator’s and/or other Parent User’s parental rights in connection with a Minor featured on such User’s Family Page.

24. No Agency
2FORKIDS is an independent service provider and not a party to any payment transactions effected through any third-party payment processor available on the Site. Any dispute that may arise between you and a payment processor in connection with any services provided to you by such provider is not 2FORKIDS’s responsibility and is to be settled directly between you and such provider.
If for any reason we determine or a court of competent jurisdiction finds that any provision or portion of this Agreement to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid under applicable law in a particular jurisdiction: (a) this Agreement will not be affected in other jurisdictions to the extent that such determination or finding has no application; and (b) in the relevant jurisdiction, the remainder of this Agreement (to the fullest extent permitted by law) will continue in full force and effect. Neither you nor us will be in breach of these Terms in the event that party is unable to perform its obligations as a result of any reason or condition beyond its reasonable control.
26. No Waiver
No delay or indulgence by either you or us in enforcing any of the terms of this Agreement or the granting of time by either party to the other shall prejudice or restrict such rights and powers. No waiver of any term or condition of this Agreement shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by us. The waiver of any breach of any term or condition set forth in this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach or condition thereof.
27. Dispute Resolution
Most disagreements or disputes can be resolved amicably through informal mediation. You can reach us at email@example.com. Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with us and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
28. ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER - PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
If the parties are unable to reach an amicable resolution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time the informal mediation process is initiated then you and we expressly agree that any legal dispute, claim or controversy between you and us arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Service, including without limitation disputes related to rights of privacy and/or publicity, and whether or not such dispute, claim or controversy involves a third party (each, a “Dispute”), and that the enforcement of this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section, shall be settled exclusively by binding, individual arbitration in accordance with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then current rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes (available online at http://www.adr.org).
YOU AGREE THAT REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY DISPUTE MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH DISPUTE AROSE OR BE FOREVER BARRED.
The arbitration proceedings will be held by a single arbitrator, will be confidential and in English, and this Agreement will be interpreted and construed in the English language, which is the language of the official text of this Agreement.
The arbitration proceedings will be held in Wilmington, Delaware, provided however that if the value of the relief sought is U.S.$10,000 or less, either you or we may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election will be binding on you and us (subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing based on the circumstances). Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or us, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. Any in-person arbitration shall be held at a mutually agreeable location determined by you and us in accordance with the AAA rules.
The decision of the arbitrator shall be nonappealable and final and binding upon the parties hereto, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered into any court having jurisdiction. The Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1 et seq.), and not any state law concerning arbitration, governs all arbitration under this arbitration clause. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court at law or in equity but will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Agreement.
The arbitrator shall award the costs and expenses of arbitration, including attorneys’ fees, to the prevailing party as part of such party’s award, in addition to all other relief granted. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost.
YOU HEREBY UNDERSTAND, ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE OUR RIGHTS TO A TRIAL IN A COURT OF LAW.
Exception for Litigation or Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve Disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its Intellectual Property Rights. As an alternative to binding arbitration, you may bring your Dispute in “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules and if within such small claims court’s jurisdiction, provided that the small claims court does not permit class, representative, or consolidated actions, or the award of relief in favor of any person or entity that is not a named party to the small claims action.
Any proceeding to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor we will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected proceedings. You and we also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or any consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. THIS WAIVER IS MUTUAL AS BETWEEN YOU AND US.
If any part of this section, other than the class action waiver clause, is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain enforceable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if the class action waiver clause contained herein is not enforceable as to any person or persons, such non-enforceability shall apply to such person or persons only, and all other persons shall continue to be governed by the arbitration clause.
