Terms of Service
Effective: January 30, 2018
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
Description of the Service. SAVA is a technology platform, not a marijuana collective or cooperative, and does not actually touch the plant nor receive its revenue from the sale of cannabis. We (a) provide detailed product information to Users, (b) cultivate a community around responsible cannabis use through both virtual applications and physical events, (b) receive and process information received from Users seeking medical or recreational cannabis from third-party cannabis providers, (c) perform pre-verification checks for Users seeking medical or recreational cannabis in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and (d) provide a platform, accessed via a website and/or mobile app, through which Users, including lawfully operated third-party cannabis businesses and cannabis consumers, may establish a relationship for the provision of medical or recreational cannabis. We neither provide nor intend to provide cannabis delivery services to Users. It is the sole responsibility of the third party cannabis businesses 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.
Eligibility to Use Service. This is a contract between you and SAVA. You must read and agree to these terms before using the Service. If you do not agree, you may not use the Service. You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with SAVA, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national (while acknowledging Section 3 below), and international laws, rules and regulations. By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you are in compliance with the age restrictions set forth by your jurisdiction in relation to services such as this, but in any event you are at least eighteen (18) years of age. By using the Service to initiate a relationship with a third-party cannabis provider, you expressly acknowledge that SAVA is solely for Users residing in states that have adopted legislation providing medical and/or recreational use of cannabis. You further represent that you are such a patient or, where permissible, the primary caregiver for such a patient and that the creation of such relationship is being done in compliance with applicable state and local laws. 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 medical cannabis. You further acknowledge that any of these activities may be illegal under state law unless all participants are acting completely within the scope of their respective states’ cannabis laws, such as California’s Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA). SAVA has its principal place of business in California. However, SAVA may be accessible to and provide the Service to Users outside of California. If you are not a resident and qualified User within the State of California, you must abide by and follow the laws of the state in which you are a resident.
Acknowledgement of Federal Law. 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 further acknowledge that medical marijuana is not recognized as a valid defense under federal laws. You further acknowledge that the interstate transportation of marijuana is a federal offense. You acknowledge and agree that SAVA 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.
SAVA Accounts. Your SAVA account gives you access to the features and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users, and these different accounts may have different functionalities available to them. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these terms and conditions, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates. Unless you have entered into a separate agreement with SAVA to become a third-party cannabis provider, you represent and warrant that your use of the Service is for your sole, personal use. You may never (x) use another User’s account, (y) assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity; or (z) share with or distribute to any third party any cannabis received from a third-party provider except to the extent you are the primary caregiver for a qualified patient, where applicable law provides for the same. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information, and you must keep this information up to date. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You must notify SAVA immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. SAVA will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account. You may control your User profile and how you interact with the Service by changing the settings in your account settings page.

GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND CLASS ACTION / JURY TRIAL WAIVER
Governing Law. You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Francisco County, California for any actions for which we retain 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 our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that San Francisco County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM SAVA. For any dispute with SAVA, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that SAVA has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco County, California, unless you and SAVA agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS 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) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (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. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing SAVA 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, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
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 AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND SAVA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
Time to Present Claims. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or to this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action accrued or you shall be forever barred from making such claim.
Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by SAVA without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
Entire Agreement/Severability. This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with SAVA in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and SAVA concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
No Waiver. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and SAVA’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
