Terms and Conditions of Service
Hello! You have arrived at a web site or mobile application that is provided by Waller Union Inc., d/b/a Meadow Care ("Us", "We", "Meadow", or the "Company"). The below Terms and Conditions of Service ("TCS") govern your access and use of any and all Meadow-owned or -operated web sites (including mobile sites), mobile applications, interactive features, widgets, and/or other online services (collectively, referred to as the "Service"), regardless of how you access or use the Service, whether via personal computers, mobile devices or otherwise. By accessing or using the Service, you expressly accept and agree to the TCS and enter into a legally binding contract with Meadow. Do not access or use the Service if you are unwilling or unable to be bound by the TCS.
I. WHAT MEADOW DOES
Meadow Care is not a cannabis dispensary or delivery service. We offer (a) to receive information from adult-use cannabis customers and medical cannabis patients, (b) to perform customer and patient pre-verification checks in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and (c) a virtual environment, such as a website through which customers, patients and lawfully operated dispensaries and delivery services may establish a relationship for the provision of adult use and medical cannabis. We neither provide nor intend to provide cannabis delivery services to medical cannabis patients or adult-use customers. It is the sole responsibility of the third party dispensary or delivery service to provide delivery and other services in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. While we make reasonable efforts, such as by reviewing state licenses, to ensure that any third party providers with whom we affiliate operate in compliance with applicable regulations, we make no representations, promises, or warranties with respect to the legality, suitability, or otherwise regarding such third party providers and have no responsibility or liability with respect to services provided to you by such third parties.
II. EFFECTS OF ACCESSING AND USING MEADOW’S SERVICE

The Company is not liable if you do not have a compatible handset or if you have downloaded the wrong version of the Application for your handset. The Company reserves the right to terminate this Agreement should you be using the Service or Application with an incompatible or unauthorized device.
A. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF AND AGREEMENT TO ABIDE BY ALL APPLICABLE CANNABIS LAWS

You further represent that you are such a customer or patient or, where permissible, the primary caregiver for such a patient.
You expressly acknowledge that you are familiar and assume full responsibility for cooperating with all laws regarding the use, possession, cultivation, transportation, and distribution of cannabis.

You further acknowledge that you understand that the use, possession, cultivation, transportation, and/or distribution of cannabis is illegal under federal law, and that individuals are subject to arrest and/or prosecution by federal officials. You acknowledge and agree that Meadow neither provides nor has any obligation to provide any legal protections, such as indemnification, with respect to any civil, criminal, or administrative proceeding, investigation, litigation, or prosecution.
Meadow has its principal place of business in California. However, Meadow may be accessible to and provide services to users and dispensary entities outside of California.

Meadow respects all intellectual property rights, including copyright. To that end, Meadow will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), as set forth below. If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner's) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Service, then you may send us a notice to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes all of the following:
(i) a legend or subject line that says: "DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice";
(ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
(iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL of the Service on which the material appears);
(iv) your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
(v) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
(vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed); and
(vii) your electronic or physical signature.
Meadow will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by e-mail at the address email@example.com
Please not that it is often difficult or not reasonably possible to determine if your copyright has been infringed. Meadow may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and/or may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
Without limiting Meadow’s other rights, Meadow may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer's access to the Service and any other website owned or operated by Meadow.
We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA Counter-Notification.
If access on the Service to a work that you submitted to Meadow is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:
(i) a legend or subject line that says: "DMCA Counter-Notification";
(ii) a description of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled (please include the URL of the Service from which the material was removed or access to it disabled);
(iii) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
(iv) your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and the username of your account;
(v) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or, if the address is located outside the U.S.A., to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Central District of California), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided DMCA notification to us or an agent of such person; and
(vi) your electronic or physical signature.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) in not less than ten (10) and not more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Service. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.

You and Company agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Service or Application (collectively, "Disputes") shall be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and 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 copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.

You acknowledge and agree that you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class User in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Company otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Company otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the City of San Francisco, California. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Company submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. The prevailing party in arbitration will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
Right to Counsel. You have the right to be represented by counsel of your choice. However, you agree that in all events you, not Meadow, shall be responsible for all of your counsel’s fees.

No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, the Company or any third party provider as a result of this Agreement or use of the Service or Application.
