    • Third-Party Materials. As a part of the Seshie Properties, you may have access to materials that are hosted by another party.  You agree that it is impossible for Seshie to monitor such materials and that you access these materials at your own risk.
    • Registering Your Account. In order to access certain features of the Seshie Properties, including to activate a Subscription, you may be required to become a Registered User.  For purposes of the Terms, a “Registered User” is a User who has registered a user account on the Website (each, an “Account”).
    • Registration Data. When registering an Account for the Services or submitting an application to become Talent, you agree to (1) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services’ registration form (the “Registration Data”); and (2) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.  You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account (and if you are a parent or guardian supervising a minor user, you are responsible for all activities that occur under such minor user’s Account). You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself. Seshie reserves the right to remove or reclaim any usernames at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to, claims by a third party that a username violates the third party’s rights.

    • Necessary Equipment and Software. You must provide all equipment and software necessary to connect to the Seshie Properties.  You are solely responsible for any fees, including Internet connection or mobile fees, that you incur when accessing the Seshie Properties.
    • Payments Terms for Customer.
      • General. As a Customer, you agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account in accordance with the fees, charges and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. Once paid, such amounts will be deposited into escrow before being released to Talent. You must provide Seshie with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) or PayPal account (“Payment Provider”) in order to purchase any of the options offered on the Services. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card or PayPal account, and you must refer to that agreement and not the Terms to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing Seshie with your credit card number or PayPal account and associated payment information, you agree that Seshie is authorized to immediately invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to Seshie hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required.  You agree to immediately notify Seshie of any change in your billing address or the credit card or PayPal account used for payment hereunder.  Seshie reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on Seshie Properties or by e-mail delivery to you. Any such fees or
      • Subscription Automatic Renewal. You will be responsible for payment of the applicable subscription fee for a Subscription that Seshie deems “premier” (the “Subscription Fee”). Your Subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Terms. After your initial monthly Subscription period, and again after any subsequent Subscription period, your Subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at the Talent’s then-current price for such Subscription. You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your Subscription at least (a) thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that you receive a notice from Seshie that your Subscription will be automatically renewed, you will have thirty days from the date of Seshie notice).  If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your Subscription, you can manage your Subscription by contacting hello@seshie.io. If you cancel your Subscription, you may use your Subscription until the end of your then-current Subscription term; your Subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires.  However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the Subscription fee paid for the then-current Subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize Seshie to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent Subscription period. Upon renewal of your Subscription, if Seshie does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand, and/or (ii) you agree that Seshie may either terminate or suspend your Subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment,  your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new Subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
    • Payments to Talent. Talent acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Talent has the ability to set the Session prices displayed to Customers for any Talent Services; (ii) Seshie is entitled to collect the Gross Revenues (as defined below) through its third-party payment provider as set forth in Section 4.6; and (iii) that prior to remitting Talent’s portion of such fees, Seshie will deduct (a) any credit card processing fees associated with payments received from Customers or sent to Talent, (b) Seshie’s service fee of five percent (5%), and (c) Seshie’s platform fee, which is equal to twenty percent (20%) of the Gross Revenues (collectively, “Deductions”). “Gross Revenues” means all revenue received by Seshie from each Session transaction with a Customer. Seshie will then release the funds from escrow and remit the remaining amount of Gross Revenues, following the Deductions, to Talent’s Account: (i) immediately if a Customer marks the Session as complete; or (ii) within seventy-two (72) hours of receipt of Gross Revenues from Seshie if Talent marks the Session as complete and the Customer does not dispute such action in the following three (3) days, at which point Talent may claim the funds. To claim the funds from Talent’s Account, Talent may manually transfer such funds to a bank account linked to his or her Account, or transfer it to an eligible debit card or bank account linked to his or her Account, subject to any fees that may be applicable to such transfers.
    • Disputes. You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived.  Billing disputes should be notified to the following e-mail address: hello@seshie.io.
    • Cancellation. You may cancel a Session at any time, without penalty, up until forty-eight (48) hours prior to such Session. If you, as a Customer, cancel outside of the forty-eight (48) hour window, or Talent cancels at any time, you will receive all amounts prepaid for the Session; however, if you, as a Customer, cancel within the forty-eight (48) hour window, you will receive fifty percent (50%) of the amounts prepaid for the Session. Seshie reserves the right to establish, remove and/or revise our cancellation policy or cancellation fees at any time in our discretion.
    • Refunds. In the event that a Customer is not satisfied with a Session, Customer will not mark the Session as “complete,” and Seshie will conduct an investigation. Seshie reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to issue a refund to the Customer for the Session after it completes such an investigation, and may withhold Talent fees in the event of any such complaint.
    • Third Party Provider. Seshie uses Stripe, Inc. as the third party service provider for payment services (e.g., card acceptance, merchant settlement, and related services).  By buying or selling on the Seshie Properties, you agree to be bound by Stripe’s Privacy Policy: https://stripe.com/privacy and hereby consent and authorize Seshie and Stripe to share any information and payment instructions you provide with third-party service providers to the minimum extent required to complete your transactions.
    • Anti-Circumvention. Customers shall not engage Talent and Talent shall not solicit Customers outside of the Platform, whether directly or indirectly, for the Talent Services. In the event Talent induces, suggests, or otherwise solicits any Customer’s request for Talent Services outside the Website, or a Customer attempts to engage the Talent for Talent Services outside of the Services, without limiting any available other remedies, Seshie shall have the right to immediately terminate the Customer and/or Talent Accounts, as applicable, without notice, with no liability and no further obligation to either the Customer or Talent.

You acknowledge that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, tags and/or other materials accessible through the Seshie Properties (collectively, “Content”), is the sole responsibility of the party from whom such Content originated. This means that you, and not Seshie, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, e-mail, transmit or otherwise share or make available (“Make Available”) through the Seshie Properties (“Your Content”), and that you and other Users of the Seshie Properties, and not Seshie, are similarly responsible for all Content they Make Available through the Seshie Properties (“User Content”).

  1. Termination or Suspension of Services by Seshie. Seshie may terminate or suspend your right to use the Seshie Properties at any time for any or no reason by providing you with written or email notice of such termination, and termination will be effective immediately upon delivery of such notice. We may cancel unconfirmed Accounts or Accounts that have been inactive for a long time, or modify or discontinue our Services.  Without limitation, Seshie may terminate or suspend your right to use the Seshie Properties if you breach any provision of the Terms or any policy of Seshie posted through the Seshie Properties from time to time; if Seshie otherwise finds that you have engaged in inappropriate and/or offensive behavior; if Seshie believes you are creating problems or possible legal liabilities; if Seshie believes such action will improve the security of our community or reduce another User’s exposure to financial liabilities; if Seshie believes you are infringing the rights of third parties; if Seshie believes you are acting inconsistently with the spirit of these Terms; or if despite our reasonable endeavors, Seshie is unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide.  In addition to terminating or suspending your Account, Seshie reserves the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation pursuing civil, criminal, and injunctive redress.  Even after your right to use the Services is terminated or suspended, these Terms will remain enforceable against you.
    • Termination of Services by You. If you want to terminate the Services provided by Seshie, you may do so by closing your Account for all of the Services that you use. THE SERVICES WILL CONTINUE AT THE END OF EACH SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD UNLESS YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROCEDURE SET FORTH IN SECTION 4.1(B).
    • Effect of Termination. Termination of any Service includes removal of access to such Service and barring of further use of the Service; provided, however, with respect to Customers, you will have the right to continue your Subscription(s) until the end of the then-current Subscription term(s). Termination of all Services also includes deletion of your password and all related information, files and Content associated with or inside your Account (or any part thereof), including Your Content. Notwithstanding the foregoing, please note that we may be required to keep such information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements).  When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.  We may also retain your information for fraud or similar purposes. Seshie will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any suspension or termination, including for deletion of Your Content.  All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive, shall survive termination of Services, including without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitation of liability.
    • Violations. If Seshie becomes aware of any possible violations by you of the Terms, Seshie reserves the right to investigate such violations.  If, as a result of the investigation, Seshie believes that criminal activity has occurred, Seshie reserves the right to refer the matter to, and to cooperate with, any and all applicable legal authorities.  Seshie is entitled, except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, to disclose any information or materials on or in the Seshie Properties, including Your Content, to (1) comply with applicable laws, legal process or governmental request; (2) enforce the Terms; (3) respond to any claims that Your Content violates the rights of third parties; (4) respond to your requests for customer service; (5) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Seshie, its Users or the public; or (6) in connection with all enforcement actions or investigations or other government officials, as Seshie in its sole discretion believes to be necessary or appropriate.
    • Breach. In the event that Seshie determines, in its sole discretion, that you have breached any portion of the Terms, or have otherwise demonstrated conduct inappropriate for the Seshie Properties, Seshie reserves the right to:
      • Warn you via e-mail (to any e-mail address you have provided to Seshie) that you have violated the Terms;
      • Delete any of Your Content provided by you or your agent(s) to the Seshie Properties;
      • Discontinue your registration(s) with any of the Seshie Properties, including the Services;

  2. International Users. This Website can be accessed from countries around the world and may contain references to Seshie Properties and Content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that Seshie intends to announce such Seshie Properties or Content in your country. The Seshie Properties are controlled and offered by Seshie from its facilities in the United States of America. Seshie makes no representations that the Seshie Properties are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Seshie Properties from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
  3. Arbitration Agreement. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Seshie and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
    • Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with Seshie, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or Seshie may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of these Terms or any prior version of these Terms.
    • Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.  To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to our registered agent: Corporation Service Company, 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington, Delaware 19808. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider.  Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or request for relief under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other disputes shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/.  JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267.  If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.  If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Seshie will pay them for you.  In addition, Seshie will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.

You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

  • Authority of Arbitrator.  The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Seshie.  The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Terms (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded.  The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have.  The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
  • Waiver of Jury Trial.  YOU AND SESHIE HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Seshie are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 17.1 above.  An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow the Terms as a court would.  However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
  • Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief.  ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of Delaware.  All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
  • 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: hello@seshie.io, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Seshie username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Seshie account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of the Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
  • Severability. Except as provided in Section 17.5, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
  • Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Seshie.
  • Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Seshie makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing Seshie at the following address: Seshie Inc., 1059 Montgomery Avenue, Narberth, PA 19072.

If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “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.
    • Assignment. The Terms, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without Seshie’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.

    • Governing Law. The Terms and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of Delaware consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
    • Notice. Where Seshie requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing Seshie with your most current e-mail address.  In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Seshie is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by the Terms, Seshie’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice.  You may give notice to Seshie at the following address: Seshie Inc., 1059 Montgomery Avenue, Narberth, PA 19072. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Seshie by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
    • Waiver. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of the Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
    • Severability. If any provision of the Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of the Terms will remain enforceable, and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
    • Export Control. You may not use, export, import, or transfer the Seshie Properties except as authorized by U.S. law, the laws of the jurisdiction in which you obtained the Seshie Properties, and any other applicable laws.  In particular, but without limitation, the Seshie Properties may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any United States embargoed countries; or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Person’s List or Entity List. By using the Seshie Properties, you represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. You also will not use the Seshie Properties for any purpose prohibited by U.S. law, including the development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.  You acknowledge and agree that products, services or technology provided by Seshie are subject to the export control laws and regulations of the United States.  You shall comply with these laws and regulations and shall not, without prior U.S. government authorization, export, re-export, or transfer Seshie products, services or technology, either directly or indirectly, to any country in violation of such laws and regulations.
