Terms and Conditions
Last updated: June 19, 2017
Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”, “Terms and Conditions”) carefully before using the Slip Swap mobile application (the “Service” or “App”) operated by SlipSwap, LLC (“us”, “we”, or “our”).
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you do not have permission to access the Service.
By creating an Account on our service, you agree to subscribe to newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information we may send. However, you may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.
Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set on an annual basis.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or SlipSwap, LLC cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your settings within the Service or by contacting the SlipSwap, LLC customer support team.
The App uses the in-app-purchase capabilities of the Apple App Store and Google App Store to handle Subscriptions and Payment. A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide SlipSwap, LLC with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize SlipSwap, LLC to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, SlipSwap, LLC will issue an electronic invoice via email, push notifications, or displayed within the App, indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
SlipSwap, LLC may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time (“Free Trial”).
You will be required to enter your billing information, or complete the In-App Purchase process, in order to sign up for the Free Trial.
After completing the In-App Purchase, you will not be charged by SlipSwap, LLC until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you cancelled your Subscription, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected.
At any time and without notice, SlipSwap, LLC reserves the right to (i) modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer, or (ii) cancel such Free Trial offer.
SlipSwap, LLC, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
SlipSwap, LLC will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
Except when required by law, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable. Should you cancel your subscription, your membership will remain active and you will continue to have full access to the App until the end of your Subscription term.

SOME OTHER THOUGHTS
Interesting aspects of Airbnb we might want to consider drafting similar wording. Money exchanges hands though so it might not be applicable to us …….
4 If you choose to use the Airbnb Platform as a Host or Co-Host (as defined below), your relationship with Airbnb is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Airbnb for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Airbnb
11.1 As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the Accommodation (including any personal or other property located at the Accommodation) in the condition it was in when you arrived. You are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Accommodation, excluding the Host (and the individuals the Host invites to the Accommodation, if applicable
Also We might want to consider calling out that we are not party to or an agent of any agreement between members. were just a platform/service
2 As the provider of the Airbnb Platform, Airbnb does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings or Host Services. Hosts alone are responsible for their Listings and Host Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Airbnb is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Airbnb a real estate broker or insurer. Airbnb is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payments Terms.
If we offer “verified” listings we need some protection. In Abnb it is member but for us it would be listings. We might offer to verify that a member owns their Slip in exchange for a reduced yearly fee for the member. We need this verification to still not be a guarantee, but a best effort.
Any references to a Member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Airbnb about any Member, including of the Member’s identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable.
