Upon your payment of the funds to Wellvyl, your payment obligation to the Activity Provider for the agreed upon amount is extinguished, and Wellvyl is responsible for remitting the funds to the Activity Provider in the manner described in these Payments Terms, which constitute Wellvyl’s agreement with the Purchaser.

10.2 Cancellations and Refunds
10.2.2 If an Activity Provider cancels a confirmed Booking, Wellvyl will provide the Purchaser a full refund of the Gross Payment within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation. In some instances, Wellvyl may allow the Purchaser to apply the refund to a new Booking, in which case Wellvyl will credit the amount against the Purchaser’s subsequent Booking at the Purchaser’s direction.
10.2.5 If, as an Activity Provider, your Purchaser cancels a confirmed booking or Wellvyl decides that it is necessary to cancel a confirmed Booking, and Wellvyl issues a refund to the Purchaser in accordance with the Cancellation and Refund Policy, Extenuating Circumstances Policy, or other applicable cancellation policy, you agree that in the event you have already been paid, Wellvyl will be entitled to recover the amount of any such refund from you, including by subtracting such refund amount out from any future Payouts due to you.
10.3 Payment Processing Errors
We will take steps to rectify any payment processing errors that we become aware of. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the same Payout Method or Payment Method used for the original Payout to or payment by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount.
If Wellvyl is unable to collect any amounts you owe under these Payments Terms, Wellvyl may engage in collection efforts to recover such amounts from you. Wellvyl will deem any owed amounts overdue when: (a) for authorized charges, ninety (90) days have elapsed after Wellvyl first attempts to charge the Member’s Payment Method or the associated services have been provided, whichever is later; and (b) for withholdings from an Activity Provider’s future Payouts, one hundred and eighty (180) days have elapsed after the adjustment is made to the Activity Provider’s account or the associated services have been provided, whichever is later. Any overdue amounts not collected within one hundred and eighty (180) days after they become overdue will be deemed to be in default. You hereby explicitly agree that all communication in relation to amounts owed will be made by electronic mail or by phone, as provided to Wellvyl by you. Such communication may be made by Wellvyl or by anyone on their behalf, including but not limited to a third-party collection agent.

16.1 If you choose to use the Payment Services, you do so voluntarily and at your sole risk. The Payment Services are provided “as is”, without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.
16.2 Notwithstanding Wellvyl’s appointment as the limited payment collection agent of Activity Providers for the purposes of accepting payments from Purchasers through the Platform, Wellvyl explicitly disclaims all liability for any act or omission of any Member or other third party. Wellvyl does not have any duties or obligations as agent for each Activity Provider except to the extent expressly set forth in these Payments Terms, and any additional duties or obligations as may be implied by law are expressly excluded.
16.3 If we choose to conduct identity verification on any Member or Activity Provider, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that such checks will identify prior misconduct by a Member or Activity Provider or guarantee that a Member or Activity Provider will not engage in misconduct in the future.
16.4 The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Payment Services remains with you. If you permit or authorize another person to use your Account in any way, you are responsible for the actions taken by that person. Neither Wellvyl nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Payment Services will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Payments Terms, (ii) from the use of or inability to use the Payment Services, or (iii) from any communications, interactions, or meetings with other Members or other persons with whom you communicate, interact, transact, or meet with as a result of your use of the Payment Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, or any other legal theory, and whether or not Wellvyl has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Except for our obligations to pay amounts to applicable Activity Providers pursuant to these Payments Terms, in no event will Wellvyl’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Payments Terms and your use of the Payment Services including, but not limited to, from your use of or inability to use the Payment Services, exceed the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the Platform as a Purchaser in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are an Activity Provider, the amounts paid by Wellvyl to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred U.S. dollars (US$100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Wellvyl and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. If you reside outside of the U.S., this does not affect Wellvyl’s liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, nor for fraudulent misrepresentation, misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter, or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
You agree to release, defend (at Wellvyl’s option), indemnify, and hold Wellvyl and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your breach of these Payments Terms; (ii) your improper use of the Payment Services; or (iii) your breach of any laws, regulations, or third-party rights.
19. Termination, Suspension, and other Measures
19.3 Wellvyl may immediately, without notice terminate this Agreement if (i) you have materially breached your obligations under this Agreement; (ii) you have provided inaccurate, fraudulent, outdated, or incomplete information; (iii) you have violated applicable laws, regulations, or third-party rights; or (iv) Wellvyl believes in good faith that such action is reasonably necessary to protect other Members, Wellvyl, or third parties (for example in the case of fraudulent behavior of a Member).
19.5 Braintree may also terminate your access to the Payment Services, if (i) Braintree believes you are in breach of PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy, (ii) you pose a compliance risk, or (iii) in accordance with Braintree’s PSA.
19.6 In case of non-material breaches and where appropriate, you will be given notice of any measure by Wellvyl and an opportunity to resolve the issue to Wellvyl’s reasonable satisfaction.
19.7 If you are an Activity Provider and we take any of the measures described in this Section we may refund your Purchasers in full for any and all confirmed Booking(s), irrespective of preexisting cancellation policies, and you will not be entitled to any compensation for pending or confirmed Booking(s) that were cancelled.

- Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
All matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of New York.
21. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
YOU AND WELLVYL ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS AGREEMENT TO THE SERVICES OR YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM (EACH A “CLAIM”), WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
For Members, the arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules then in effect, except as modified by this Section 21. For Activity Providers, the arbitration will be administered by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect, except as modified by this Section 21. (The Consumer Arbitration Rules and Commercial Arbitration Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
The arbitrator’s decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs, or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or us from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and we also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and we retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with this Agreement, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in this Agreement.
Neither you nor we may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or our individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
If any provision of this Section 21 is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section 21 of this Agreement will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Agreement. This Section of the Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
