Description of the Services
Wana offers Services, including online platforms as well as products, tools, and interactions, both online and offline, to help persons meet with other persons for the purpose of exchanging or seeking and receiving family care, including care for one’s pet. The Services enable you to exchange or seek and receive care with friends, neighbors, and family that you connect with using the Services: a network of individuals we refer to as your “Village”.
Wana Services use a cash-free ecosystem that runs on a virtual currency called Points. As further described below, Villagers earn Points when they provide care services and spend those Points when they need to receive such services. Villagers may also purchase Points according to the Terms.
Any and all visitors to the Site and/or users of the Services shall be deemed “users” for the purpose of these Terms. Any user who represents a household of adult(s), with or without child dependent(s), and who registers for our Services through the process of successfully creating a profile reserved for such users (“Family Profile”), shall be referred to as a “Family.” Any user who otherwise meets the eligibility criteria provided herein and who registers for our Services, through the process of successfully creating a profile reserved for such users (“Care Profile”, collectively with Family Profile, a “Profile”), shall be referred to as a “Villager.” For the purposes of these Terms, “Villager” shall also mean to include “Family.” A user who subscribes to receive marketing content through the Site but does not or cannot, due to eligibility requirements, create a Profile, shall be referred to as a “Guest.”
Our Services include but are not limited to:
- We enable Villagers to post profiles on the Site for the purpose of requesting and/or offering care to other Villagers;
- We provide a scheduler to help Villagers organize care with other Villagers;
- We provide a messenger that allows Villagers to communicate without revealing contact information;
- We enable Villagers to give, receive, and purchase Points on the Site for the purpose of trading care equitably, and to monitor their inventory and usage of Points;
- We enable Villagers to provide information on their association with certain educational institutions, community groups, and/or other local entities in order to describe themselves and connect with other Villagers of similar interests;
- We provide search functionality (“Search Services”) on the Site to allow Villagers to identify other Villagers they are interested in meeting based on their needs, preferences, and affiliations;
- As a courtesy, we may provide tools to help Villagers make more informed decisions, such as (i) trust indicators on Profiles, which show other Villagers’ quantity of activity on the Site, and (ii) peer reviews on Profiles, which show other Villagers’ quality of activity on the Site;
- We provide notification of events outside the Site that Villagers may choose to attend.
We are constantly working to provide new and better Services for our Villagers and Guests. These Terms shall apply to any and all additional, updated, modified, and/or revised Services unless otherwise stipulated.
By accessing or using the Services or Site, you knowledge that Wana merely offers tools, resources, and a venue to connect those seeking care services with those seeking to provide such services. You understand and agree that Wana: (a) is not a party to any transactions between users; (b) does not employ, recommend or endorse any users and has no control over the acts or omissions of any users; (c) is not responsible or liable in any manner for the performance or conduct of any users or other third parties online or offline; (d) makes no representations or warranties about the quality of the services provided by any users or about your interactions or dealings with other users; and (e) does not screen users or conduct any kind of identity or background checks with respect to users other than as a courtesy.

By accessing or using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for your use of the Services and the connections you make and that ALL USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE RISK.
Family’s and Villager’s Representation and Warranties
Users who meet certain eligibility criteria, as defined below, may register a Profile with Wana Services to gain access to our Services reserved exclusively for Families and Villagers.
You are responsible for providing accurate, current, and complete information in connection with your registration, you commit to keeping such information up-to-date and accurate, and you will register your Profile in your own legal name.
To open a Profile, you also represent and warrant that you meet the following eligibility criteria:

- You have the need for, and/or have the capacity and willingness to meet others’ need for, family care, including child care, elder care, and care of pets;
- Neither you nor any member of your household, your home, or the location where care services are provided or received (a) has ever been the subject of a complaint, restraining order or any other legal action involving violence, abuse, neglect, fraud, larceny, or any offense that involves endangering the safety of others, dishonesty, negligence, or drugs, or otherwise arrested for, charged with, or convicted of a felony or any criminal offense involving the above; (b) has ever been convicted of a crime of any nature, including any felony or misdemeanor of any kind, including without limitation any sexual, child abuse, or domestic violence offenses; (c) has ever been registered, is currently registered, and/or is currently required to register as a sex offender in any jurisdiction or with any government entity; or (d) is currently out on bail or pending trial relating to any felony or misdemeanor charges of any kind, including without limitation sexual, child abuse, or domestic violence offenses.

Wana reserves the right to immediately suspend or terminate your Profile for any violation of the foregoing requirements, or otherwise for knowingly providing any information of a false, untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete nature, in each case at its sole discretion.
Exclusive Use and Security
If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to the Services or portions of it using your user name, password or other security information, except as expressly provided in the Terms. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity, and you are responsible for all activities that transpire on or within your account. It is your responsibility for any act or omission of any persons that access your account information that, if undertaken by you, would be deemed a violation of the Terms. You agree to notify us immediately via firstname.lastname@example.org of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security and to immediately cease all use of your account. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared device so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. Wana shall not be held liable for any loss and/or damage arising from any failure to comply with this term and/or condition of the Terms.
You acknowledge and accept that certain content, features, functionality, and/or services of the Services may be unavailable to you unless you register an account. You further acknowledge and accept that certain content, features, functionality, and/or services of the Services may be available subject to payment by you.
When you set up a Profile, you are the sole authorized user of that account, even if you are representing multiple adults in your household. When seeking care, you may use your account only to arrange care for your children, your grandchildren, individuals for whom you are the legal guardian, and/or your pets. When offering care, you may use your account only to arrange care provided by yourself in your own home; provided, however, that care for pets may be provided elsewhere as well, as agreed upon and acknowledged in writing by the Villager accepting those services. You may from time to time arrange for care services to be provided in an alternate location, such as a park, or by another adult represented as a member of your household in your Profile, only as agreed upon and acknowledged in writing by the Villager accepting those services.
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Services, and any content, features, functionality, and services we provide on the Services, in our sole discretion, with or without reason or cause, and without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Services is unavailable at any time, for any period, or at all. Further, we also reserve the right to suspend, restrict, or otherwise limit users’ access to or use of the Services at any time, for any period, or at all, in our sole discretion, with or without reason or cause, and without notice. From time to time, we may restrict access to some or all parts of the Services, to users, including registered users.
Payments and Points
There is no charge to become a Family, Villager, or Guest of the Wana Site or Services. You may create an account, connect with Families and Villagers, and trade Points in exchange for care, for free.
In the event you have need or want of more Points than you have received from Wana Services or earned by care for other Villagers, you may purchase additional Points from Wana Services for a fee. Wana and Wana Services may also, from time to time, offer additional Services for a recurring fee, one-time fee, or other fee. You are responsible for any and all taxes and other mandated fees associated with the Services, which includes product offerings. You acknowledge and agree that the same virtual currency and/or the same content, features, functionality, or Services may be offered at different prices to different users.
Wana reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
Except as set forth in these Terms or as described on the Site at the time of purchase, all payments for Services are non-refundable, and there are no refunds or credits for unused, partially used, and/or cancelled Services. Wana does not provide refunds or credits under any circumstances, unless it determines in its sole discretion that a refund or credit is warranted due to extenuating circumstances.
At its sole discretion, Wana Services may offer special Points or other promotions, awards, discounts, or redemptions (together referred to as “Promotions”). All Promotions can be modified or terminated at any time by Wana with or without advance notice. Promotions may be offered on a limited-time basis and may be subject to certain additional terms.
Some Promotions may be offered to first-time Villagers only. In such a case, a Villager will be eligible to receive the Promotion only if they have never before been registered as a Villager. Wana will use information provided by the user to determine eligibility, including but not limited to, name, address, and email address. Determination of eligibility is at the sole discretion of Wana.
You may receive or purchase Points to be used as payment to other Villagers in exchange for care or for other activities as described on the Site. A “Sit” is a discrete occurrence where a Villager (or Villagers) provides care for another Villager (or Villagers), or the Villager’s dependent(s) and/or pet(s), using the Services. A Sit shall be “Concluded” when the scheduled time for the care session has passed and “Completed” when the involved Villagers have acknowledged the Sit’s Completion through the Site and approved the number of Points for transfer.
When a Villager requests or offers a Sit from or to another Villager, Wana Services provide a suggested number of Points to be transferred upon Completion of the Sit, based on, but not limited to, the duration of the Sit. Both Villagers are responsible for reviewing and agreeing on the number of Points to transfer prior to booking the Sit. Booking is considered confirmation and approval of the recommended Points to transfer, unless otherwise specified in writing by the Villagers. Points will not be transferred until the Sit is Complete.
Upon Conclusion of the Sit, either Villager may adjust the parameters of the Sit affecting Points calculation, including, but not limited to, the duration of the Sit, based on the final circumstances of the Sit; Wana Services will provide an updated suggested number of Points to be transferred. Either Villager may adjust the number of Points to be transferred. Twenty-four hours after a Sit Concludes, the Sit is automatically considered Complete, and Points are transferred from the Villager who received the Sit to the Villager who hosted the Sit.
Once a Sit is Complete and Points are transferred, the transfer is final. Wana will not be held responsible for the satisfaction of either Villager in the number of Points transferred or the timing of that transfer.
Points have no monetary or cash value, and your receipt or purchase of Points does not represent a pre-funding of stored cash value that can be accessed or used in the future for any purpose. Points, however obtained, cannot be sold, transferred, or exchanged for “real world” money or cash and cannot be redeemed for any goods or services outside of the Services and outside of the Site. Points may only be received and/or purchased in whole numbers from the Site for use on the Site and may be transferred exclusively on the Site between Villagers, other Villagers, and/or Wana. Users may not engage in any transaction related to Points outside of the Site, and may engage in only such transactions related to Points as mandated by these Terms and the Site. Accordingly, you may not sell Points or related items for “real” money or otherwise exchange items for value outside of the Site. We cannot assume responsibility for any such transaction or be forced to recognize any such transaction, which shall be void.
If you purchase Points, you agree to pay Wana the price indicated on the Site at the time of purchase. You agree that all sales are final and non-refundable and you are not entitled to a refund of any unused Points, including in the event that you close your account or your account is terminated by us.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Wana may impose certain limits on the collection and use of Points via the Services and may otherwise adopt rules and policies with respect to Points from time to time, and make such rules and policies available via the Services. Wana retains all right, title, and interest in and to any Points provided to you via the Services or the Site, and may rescind, cancel, deduct or adjust the Points associated with your account at any time and for any reason, at its sole discretion.
Background Checks as Courtesy
By registering for and using the Services and/or the Site, you hereby acknowledge and agree that Wana has the right, but not the obligation, to use a third-party consumer reporting agency on an ongoing basis to use your personal information to run periodic background checks on you for the legitimate business purpose of protecting the safety and integrity of the Services, the Site, and its users (“Internal Background Checks”). Wana may order these checks when you register with the Site as a Guest or Villager and thereafter in connection with your continued use of our Services and/or interaction with our Site (such as by contacting or communicating with other users, requesting or offering a Sit, etc.).
The Internal Background Checks are regulated by the Fair Credit Report Act (“FCRA”), and the background reports resulting from these services are considered “consumer reports” under FCRA. Consumer reports may contain information on your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living, including but not limited to consumer credit, criminal history, worker’s compensation, driving, employment, military, civil, and educational data and reports.
You understand and agree that Wana may review the information provided by the third-party consumer reporting agency and that Wana retains the right to terminate your Services registration based on the information it receives from these checks, even if such information was subsequently dismissed.
BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND USING OUR SITE AND SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO ALLOW WANA TO PERFORM THESE INTERNAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR THE PURPOSES DESCRIBED ABOVE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT THESE INTERNAL BACKGROUND CHECKS TO BE PERFORMED, YOU SHOULD NOT USE WANA. NO FURTHER CONSENT FROM YOU IS REQUIRED FOR THESE CHECKS TO BE PERFORMED.
You further expressly acknowledge that Wana has no obligation to perform Internal Background Checks on any users, and any safety and integrity benefits derived from such Internal Background Checks are done so as a courtesy to the users. To the extent Wana performs such checks on certain users, the checks are limited and should not be taken as complete, accurate, up-to-date, or conclusive evidence of the accuracy of any information those users have provided or of their eligibility to use the Services and the Site. Moreover, you hereby represent, understand, and expressly agree that those checks are completed by a third-party consumer reporting agency (not Wana), that the specific records searched and the comprehensiveness of the search varies by the type of background check ordered as well as the state and county where the check is performed, and that the checks are not always accurate or a complete compilation of a person’s criminal history.
California Business and Professions Code Section 18890.2 requires our Site to include the following statement: “Trustline is California’s official background check for license-exempt babysitting providers (i.e. babysitters and nannies) and the only authorized screening program in California with access to fingerprint records at the California Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and access to the California Child Abuse Central Index. The Trustline registry toll-free number is 1 (800) 822-8490.”
Wana may or may not use Trustline as a third-party verification service, at its sole discretion.
No Endorsement; User Verification as Courtesy
Wana does not employ or endorse any individual, family, or entity for the purpose of providing care. Also, Wana does not review or verify the accuracy of User Contributions (as defined below). Wana does not have and expressly disclaims control over the quality, timing, suitability, responsibility, accuracy, or legality of information, communications, goods, products, and/or services provided by users using the Site or through the Services, whether through public, private, online, or offline interactions.
We may enable users to verify certain information like address, email address, or phone number. If we indicate that a user has verified this information, it means they have successfully completed a process established and provided by us or a third party to review the information’s accuracy. Wana makes no claim or guarantee of the actual accuracy of the information provided for this process, nor does Wana make claim to the thoroughness, completeness, timeliness, accuracy, or quality of the verification process, and any such verification is provided as a courtesy.
Villagers may use the Services to view a customized list of Villagers to consider for care based on information provided by the Villager, including, but not limited to, geographic location, family composition, childcare needs, care needs, general preferences, and affiliations. In providing these Services, we are not referring or endorsing any Villager. If a Villager agrees to engage in care with another Villager identified through the Site in this or any way, such agreement is made solely between the Villagers; Wana is not a party to any such agreement.
Villagers may select certain school or local group affiliations to show as part of their profile and in search results. Unless expressly stated otherwise, Wana is not affiliated with and does not refer or recommend any of these organizations, nor do we verify the Villager’s affiliation with these organizations.
We are also not providing any medical, diagnostic, treatment, or clinical service nor engaging in any conduct that requires a professional license.
Villagers are solely and exclusively responsible for screening, interviewing, performing background checks on, collecting reference checks on, verifying information provided by, and selecting appropriate Villagers to engage with for care. You agree to take reasonable precautions in all interactions with users, both online and offline.
Wana is not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any user of the Site or Services. Moreover, Wana does not assume and expressly disclaims any liability that may result from the use of information provided on our Site. Any issues concerning the conduct of a user including, without limitation, care received or provided by a Villager, the behavior of a Villager and/or Family members before, during, or after a sit, the negotiation of Points transfer in connection with a sit, or any User Contributions, must be resolved directly by the users involved.

Users hereby acknowledge and agree to hold Wana harmless for any (mis)statements and/or (mis)representations made by or on behalf of them through the Services, on the Site, or in any other venue.

Monitoring and Enforcement; Termination
We have the right to: (a) pre-screen, review, edit, remove and/or refuse to post any User Contributions for any or no reason in our sole discretion; (b) take any action with respect to any User Contribution that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion, including if we believe that such User Contribution violates the Terms, including the Content Standards, infringes any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity, threatens the personal safety of users of the Services or the public or could create liability for Wana; (c) disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy; (d) take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Services; and (e) terminate, remove, or suspend your access, including your account, to all or part of the Services for any or no reason, including without limitation, any violation of these Terms. You acknowledge that our exercising of these rights may cause harm or damages to you, and you hereby acknowledge and agree that Wana shall not be liable for any such harm or damages.
If you breach any of the terms of these Terms, all licenses granted by us, including permission to use the Services, will terminate automatically. Additionally, we may suspend, disable, or delete your account, your access to or use of the Services, or any part of the foregoing with or without notice, for any or no reason, in our sole discretion. If we delete your account for any suspected breach of these Terms by you, you are prohibited from re-registering for the Services under a different name. You hereby acknowledge and agree that Wana shall not be liable for any harm or damages such actions or omissions may cause. All sections which by their nature should survive the termination of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect subsequent to and notwithstanding any termination of these Terms by Wana or you. Termination will not limit any of our other rights or remedies at law or in equity.
Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Services and/or the Site. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS WANA AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, AND VENDORS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ITS INVESTIGATIONS AND FROM ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
However, we do not undertake to review material before it is posted on the Services and/or the Site, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party, including User Contributions. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
You acknowledge and agree that the Service, these Terms, and any information you may learn about the Services or Wana, including any information related to Wana’s business practices, strategies, designs, products, processes, technologies, and inventions, is confidential and proprietary to Wana, whether or not marked as such, and may constitute trade secrets protected by law (such information, collectively “Confidential Information”).

Accordingly, you shall not disclose all or any party of the Confidential Information in any form to any third party, during or after your use of the Services, without the prior written permission of Wana.

NO ADVICE AND/OR INFORMATION, DESPITE WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, THAT MAY BE OBTAINED BY YOU FROM OUR SITE OR SERVICES SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY IF AND UNLESS SUCH WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THE TERMS. FURTHER, WANA DOES NOT WARRANT THE QUALITY, SAFETY, SUITABILITY, RELIABILITY, OR AVAILABILITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, GOODS, AND/OR SERVICES OBTAINED BY YOU FROM THIRD PARTIES (INCLUDING USERS) THROUGH THE SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND ANY THIRD PARTY (INCLUDING USER) PRODUCTS, GOODS, AND/OR SERVICES, REMAINS SOLELY WITH YOU.
IN ADDITON, AND WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, WANA MAKES NO PRESENTATION OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED REGARDING THE SUITABILITY OF ANY USER OF OUR SITE AND SERVICES TO PROVIDE OR RECEIVE BABYSITTING OR OTHER GOODS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF OR LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATIONS ON THE APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WANA OR ITS AFFILIATES OR ITS LICENSORS, OR ANY OF ITS OR THEIR RESPECTIVE OWNERS, SHAREHOLDERS, PARTNERS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, VENDORS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, LICENSORS, SUCCESSORS, AND ASSIGNS BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICES, ANY SITES LINKED TO THE SERVICES, ANY CONTENT ON THE SERVICES OR SUCH OTHER SITES OR SUCH OTHER PAGES OR ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH WANA OR SUCH OTHER SITES OR SUCH OTHER PAGES, INCLUDING ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, PROPERTY DAMAGE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, COST OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE, ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO: (I) THESE TERMS; (II) THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES; (III) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; (IV) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICES, INCLUDING USER CONTRIBUTIONS; (V) THE UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR CONTENT, INCLUDING USER CONTRIBUTIONS; OR (VI) ANY PRODUCTS, GOODS AND/OR SERVICES YOU RECEIVE FROM OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICES AND FROM THIRD PARTIES; IN EACH CASE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS, OUR (AND OUR AFFILIATES’ AND OUR LICENSORS’) LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS (UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, CAUSE, OR GROUND, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE), WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT WANA HAS ACTUALLY RECEIVED FROM YOU DURING THE SIX MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT WHICH GIVES RIGHT TO YOUR DAMAGE, OR FIFTY US DOLLARS ($50), WHICHEVER IS GREATER; NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, WANA MAY, AT ITS OPTION, INSTEAD DECIDE TO RE-PERFORM THE SERVICES WHICH ARE PERFORMED THROUGH THE SERVICES. THIS LIMIT SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT EVEN IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE CLAIM.
THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SECTION SHALL APPLY WHETHER OR NOT WANA HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
BY USING OR ACCESSING THE SERVICES, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY BE WAIVING RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS THAT ARE AT THIS TIME UNKNOWN OR UNSUSPECTED, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH WAIVER, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND, AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE, THE BENEFITS OF SECTION 1542 OF THE CIVIL CODE OF CALIFORNIA, AND ANY SIMILAR LAW OF ANY STATE OR TERRITORY, WHICH PROVIDES AS FOLLOWS: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE AND HEREIN ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN WANA AND YOU.
THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY LIABILITY WHICH CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
Assumption of Risk
You assume all risk when using the Site and the Services, including but not limited to all of the risks associated with any online or offline interactions with users of the Site or the Services. For example, the Villager providing a Sit for your dependent may not be suitable or safe for your dependent, or your interactions with other Villagers may violate your rights. You agree to take and be held solely responsible for all necessary precautions when interacting with other users.
In the event you have a dispute with any user, either online or offline, you agree to release Wana from claims, demands, and damages (including, without limitation, actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected to such dispute.
Copyright Policy: Notice of Infringement; Digital Millennium Copyright Act
Anyone who believes that his or her work has been reproduced in the Services in a manner which constitutes copyright infringement may submit a notification to Wana’s copyright agent in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), by providing the following information in writing: (i) identification of the copyrighted work that is claimed to be infringed; (ii) identification of the allegedly infringing material that is requested to be removed, including a description of where it is located on the Services; (iii) information for our copyright agent to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address; (iv) a statement that you have a good faith belief that the identified, allegedly infringing use is not authorized by the copyright owners, its agent, or the law; (v) a statement that the information above is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or the authorized person to act on behalf of the copyright owner; and (vi) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you are asserting infringement of an intellectual property right other than copyright, please specify the intellectual property right at issue (for example, “trademark”) by notating this in your written notice. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements for a notice of infringement as specified above, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
Notices of copyright infringement claims should be sent by mail to: Wana Family Network PBC, Attn: Erin Beck, 3371 Glendale Blvd., #124, Los Angeles, CA 90039, United States; or by email to email@example.com. We will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement using the Services that are reported to our copyright agent in the notification explained above. It is our policy, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, to disable or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe copyrights or intellectual property rights of others.
If you believe that any of your User Contributions that was removed (or to which access was disabled) after we received a notice of copyright infringement is not actually infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use such content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to our copyright agent: (i) your physical or electronic signature (with your full legal name); (ii) identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (iii) a statement that you have a good faith belief, under penalty of perjury, that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and (iv) your name, address, telephone number, and email address, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by our copyright agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that we may replace the removed content or cease disabling it. Unless the original complaining party files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in ten (10) business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion. Please understand that filing a counter-notification may lead to legal proceedings between you and the complaining party to determine ownership. Be aware that there may be adverse legal consequences in your country if you make a false or bad faith allegation by using this process.
Further information on the DMCA can be found in 17 U.S.C. 512 or on the United States Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf.
The owner of the Services is based in the state of Delaware in the United States. We provide the Services for access and use only by persons located in the United States. We make no claims that the Services or any of its content, features, or functionality is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States, and you acknowledge that you may not be able to access all or some of the Services outside of the United States. Access to the Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Services from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
The Services may be subject to US export control laws, including the US Export Administration Act and its associated regulations. You shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Services to, or make the Services accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by law, rule, or regulation. You shall comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations, and rules, and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval), prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing, or otherwise making the Services available outside the US.
US Government Rights
The Services are commercial computer software, as such term is defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101. Accordingly, if you are an agency of the US Government or any contractor therefor, you receive only those rights with respect to the Services as are granted to all other end users under license, in accordance with (a) 48 C.F.R. §227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. §227.7204, with respect to the Department of Defense and their contractors, or (b) 48 C.F.R. §12.212, with respect to all other US Government licensees and their contractors.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
Arbitration, Dispute Resolution, and Class Action Waiver
Binding Arbitration. Any dispute or claim arising in any way from your use of the Services, except for disputes relating to the infringement of our intellectual property rights or the access or use of the Services in violation of these Terms, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, but you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
No Judge or Jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would.
Arbitrator and Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a neutral single arbitrator, whose decision will be final and binding, and the arbitral proceedings shall be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer Related Disputes. These rules can be found on the AAA website at www.adr.org.
Starting an Arbitration. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send us a notice of dispute, in writing, setting forth your name, address and contact information, the facts of the dispute and relief requested. You must send your notice of legal dispute to us at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Wana will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you.
Format of Proceedings. The arbitration shall be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions.
Fees. If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, Wana will pay all other AAA and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
Individual Basis and Waiver of Trial by Jury. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Wana each agree that any dispute resolution proceeding will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you acknowledge and agree that any controversy that may arise under these Terms is likely to involve complicated and difficult issues and, therefore, you and we irrevocably and unconditionally waive any right you or we may have to a trial by jury in respect of any legal action arising out of or relating to these Terms. As a result, PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
Enforcement. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Conventions on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall have no applicability.
Invalidity. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and we each agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and State courts located in the City of Los Angeles, State of California, and you and we each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any applicable dispute or claim.
Opting Out. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Wana and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to email@example.com within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Services.

You may terminate your own account at any time. You may re-register at any time, but your previous information and activity, including any of your User Contributions and any Points associated with your account, may no longer be available. Any promotion points offered to new users are only available once per household; you will not receive any promotion points intended for new users upon re-registration.
Upon termination of your account, you will no longer have access to the portions of the Site and Services that require account registration. If your account is terminated, your profile will no longer be displayed, but other User Contributions may or may not remain on the Site, at our sole discretion. Any User Contributions associated with your account after your account is terminated may not be available to you if you re-register with Wana. Wana shall be under no obligation to provide you with a copy of User Contributions by or about you on the Site. Upon termination of your account by you or us, we may modify and/or delete your User Contributions, whether on your account or elsewhere on the Site, and you hereby acknowledge and agree that you shall not hold Wana liable for any damage that this action or omission may cause you.
Following any termination of any user’s use of the Site or the Services, Wana reserves the right to send a notice thereof to other Villagers or Guests with whom we believe the user has corresponded. Our decision to terminate a user’s registration and/or to notify other users with whom we believe the individual has corresponded does not constitute, and should not be interpreted or used as information bearing on, the user’s character or general reputation.
You agree that a breach of these Terms will cause irreparable injury to Wana for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and Wana shall be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any remedies it may have hereunder or at law without a bond, other security or proof of damages.
We may give notice to you by means of a general notice on the Services, electronic mail, or by written communication sent by first class mail or pre-paid post. Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of 48 hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or 12 hours after sending (if sent by email). You may give notice to us (such notice shall be deemed given when received by us) at any time by sending an email to email@example.com. Please specify the reason for the email in the subject line so it can be forwarded to the proper department.
If you have any questions regarding these Terms, the Service please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
