Last Updated: 10/27/2022

 

 Topanga.io (“Topanga.io,” “we,” or “us”) provides to colleges, universities, and other food and beverage service providers (“Food Service Providers”) a service that enables users to have food and beverages that they order for pick-up or delivery be provided in reusable, returnable containers (“Reusable Containers”). This page explains the terms under which you may use our online services, website, web app, and software provided on or in connection with our reusable, returnable container service (collectively, the “Service”). BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICE, OR BY CLICKING A BUTTON OR CHECKING A BOX MARKED “I AGREE” (OR SOMETHING SIMILAR), YOU SIGNIFY THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY: (I) THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AND (II) OUR PRIVACY POLICY HTTPS://REUSEPASS.COM/PRIVACY (OUR “PRIVACY POLICY”) (COLLECTIVELY THESE “TERMS”).  These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service (“Users”), including you individually or, if you are accepting these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, that legal entity, and any person acting as your agent, under your authority, or with your permission (“you”).

PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROVISION IN SECTION 1 (THE “ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) AND A CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION IN SECTION 1.7 (THE “CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER”) THAT REQUIRE, UNLESS YOU OPT OUT PURSUANT TO THE INSTRUCTIONS IN SECTION 1.2, THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND TOPANGA.IO, INCLUDING ANY CLAIMS THAT AROSE OR WERE ASSERTED BEFORE YOU AGREED TO THESE TERMS.  TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK RELIEF IN A COURT OF LAW AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON YOUR CLAIMS, AS WELL AS YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS, COLLECTIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.

  1. Arbitration 

    1. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND TOPANGA.IO TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM TOPANGA.IO. This Section 1 (the “Arbitration Agreement”) applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and Topanga.io that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (a) these Terms, including the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, or enforceability thereof; (b) access to or use of the Service, including receipt of any advertising or marketing communications; (c) any transactions through, by, or using the Service; or (d) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with Topanga.io, directly or indirectly, as a consumer (“Claim” or collectively, “Claims”). The Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your agreement to these Terms. 

 

  1. If you are a new Topanga.io user, you can reject and opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement within 30 days of accepting these Terms by emailing Topanga.io at hello@topanga.io with your first and last name and clearly stating your intent to opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement. Note that opting out of this Arbitration Agreement does not affect any other part of these Terms, including the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any Claims must be brought, and has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.

 

  1. For any Claim, you agree to first contact us at hello@topanga.io and attempt to resolve the Claim with us informally. In the unlikely event that Topanga.io has not been able to resolve a Claim after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve the Claim exclusively through binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”), under the Expedited Procedures then in effect for AAA (the “Rules”), except as provided herein.  In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control.  AAA may be contacted at www.adr.org, where the Rules are also available, or by calling 1-800-778-7879. A party who desires to initiate an arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to AAA and give notice to the other party as specified in the Rules. AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org. You can contact AAA for more information on how to commence an arbitration proceeding at www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879.

 

  1. The arbitration will be conducted in the U.S. county where you live or Los Angeles County, California unless you and Topanga.io agree otherwise.  If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with the Rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) AAA may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from AAA; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the Arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and Topanga.io agree that the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether these Terms or any provision of these Terms, are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, or estoppel.

 

  1. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as (a) preventing Topanga.io from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, non-circumvention, intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights; or (b) preventing you from asserting claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances on only an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.  

 

  1. If this Arbitration Agreement is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall have no impact on the remaining provisions of the Arbitration Agreement (which shall remain in force) or Topanga.io’s or your ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, because it would prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief, then any dispute regarding the entitlement to such relief (and only that relief) must be severed from arbitration and may be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction.  All other claims for relief subject to arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement shall be arbitrated under its terms, and you and we agree that litigation of any dispute regarding the entitlement to public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.

 

  1. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver 

WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL, OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AND TOPANGA.IO AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY TO AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANT AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).  ANY RELIEF AWARDED MAY NOT AFFECT OTHER TOPANGA.IO USERS. YOU AND TOPANGA.IO FURTHER AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU AND TOPANGA.IO ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO BRING, JOIN, OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER. 

  1. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement, if we change any of the terms of this Arbitration Agreement after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to them), you may reject any such change by providing us with written notice of such rejection within thirty (30) days after the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above. This written notice must be provided by email to hello@topanga.io with your first and last name and clearly stating your intent to reject changes to this Arbitration Agreement. By rejecting changes, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Claim between you and us in accordance with the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first agreed to these Terms (or to any subsequent changes to these Terms).
