Terms of Service
These Terms of Service (this "Agreement") set out the terms on which JASSBY, INC. ("Jassby", "we" or "us") will provide access to and use of certain services available on or through its websites and/or mobile applications (collectively, the "Service") to you, a user of the Service ("you" or "User"). You should read this Agreement carefully. By indicating acceptance of this Agreement or by otherwise using the Service, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with us (and you hereby represent that you are of legal age, and are otherwise fully able and competent, to enter into a binding agreement). If you are using the Service on behalf of an organization, you represent that you have the right to bind such organization to this Agreement, and the terms "User" and "you" will include both you, the individual user, and such organization. If you are a parent or guardian reviewing and accepting these terms on behalf of a child, "users" and "you" refers both to you and your child. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you must not use the Service.
THIS AGREEMENT CREATES A BINDING LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND JASSBY, AND INCLUDES AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE UNDER WHICH CERTAIN CLAIMS MAY NOT BE BROUGHT IN COURT OR DECIDED BY A JURY. PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.
- Nature of the Service
- General. The Service allows Users to access certain information or other content (which may include data, text, photos, video or other materials or content) related to finances, shopping, and other topics.
- No Financial Advice. Though the Service is intended to allow parents or legal guardians ("Parents"), grandparents ("Grandparents") and their children or grandchildren ("Children") to learn about finances in a fun, safe way, Jassby is not engaged in rendering financial advice through the Service. The information provided via the Service should not be interpreted as a substitute for consultation with a financial professional regarding any financial matter. You represent to us (which representation shall be deemed to be made each time you use the Service) that you are not using the Service for the purpose of seeking financial advice.
- Parent Account. In order for you and your family to use the Service, a Parent must create an account (the "Parent Account") by registering (as set forth below). Creation of a Parent Account requires designation of a Parent's bank account (a "Parent Bank Account") from which debits will be made or the details of a Parent’s debit card (a "Parent Debit Card") which will be charged when using the Service. If you have linked both a Parent Bank Account and a Parent Debit Card to the Service, your Parent Debit Card will be used as the default funding source.
- Child Account. For a Child to use the Service, you must create an account for the child (a "Child Account") or link the Parent Account to an existing Child Account. A child who has his or her own bank account (a "Child Bank Account") may link this to the Service, subject to parental consent. Such linkage is for viewing purposes, only, and the funds in the Child Bank Account will not be used for making purchases through the Service.
- Grandparent Account.The Service also allows a Grandparent to create an account (a "Grandparent Account"). A Grandparent may link his or her account to a Child Account at the initiation of the Parent or at the initiation of the Child or the Grandparent, subject to approval of the Parent. Creation of a Grandparent Account requires designation of a Grandparent’s bank account (a "Grandparent Bank Account") from which debits will be made or the details of a Grandparent’s debit card (a "Grandparent Debit Card") which will be charged when using the Service. The Grandparent may not alter controls set by the Parent over a Child Account. The Grandparent will receive statements showing how funds designated by the Grandparent for use by a Child are spent, but the Grandparent will receive no further information on the Child’s spending. By permitting the linkage of a Grandparent account to a Child Account, the Parent expressly authorizes this sharing of information with the User of the Grandparent Account.
- Use of the Service. The Service allows a Parent or Grandparent to designate funds in the Parent or Grandparent Bank Account or associated with the Parent or Grandparent Debit Card for derivative use by the user of a Child Account. A Parent may impose limitations on the designation of the funds earmarked for a Child Account. A user of a Child Account will vicariously purchase items (each, a "Purchased Item") made available through Jassby from a curated selection of suppliers (the "Online Marketplace"). Payments for Purchased Items will be debited from the Parent or Grandparent Bank Account or charged to the Parent or Grandparent Debit Card, as applicable, up to the amount so authorized by the Parent or Grandparent.
The Service also allows Parents and Grandparents to make purchases through the Online Marketplace using their own Parent or Grandparent Accounts. Payments for Purchased Items purchased directly by Parents or Grandparents will be debited from the Parent or Grandparent Bank Account or charged to the Parent or Grandparent Debit Card.
- Payments. The Online Marketplace makes available for purchase items from a curated selection of suppliers. By making a purchase from the Online Marketplace, you represent and warrant to Jassby that you are authorized to use the Parent or Grandparent Bank Account or the Parent or Grandparent Debit Card. If your purchase is subject to a use or sales tax, you may also be charged for those taxes. Users are solely responsible for all purchases made on the Online Marketplace.
By making a purchase from the Online Marketplace, you authorize Jassby to initiate recurring automatic Automated Clearing House (ACH) debits from the Parent or Grandparent Bank Account or make recurrent charges to the Parent or Grandparent Debit Card in the amounts owed to Jassby for all purchases and applicable taxes. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until you notify Jassby by e-mail at email@example.com that you wish to revoke this authorization. You agree to hold Jassby harmless for any expenses, including fees, incurred as a result of there being insufficient funds in the Parent or Grandparent Bank Account or the Parent or Grandparent Debit Card account. ACH debits from the Parent or Grandparent Bank Account or charges to the Parent or Grandparent Debit Card will generally occur within 5 days after the date of statements generated by Jassby. Jassby reserves the right to generate statements for purchases immediately after purchase, or within a longer timeframe as Jassby may, in its sole discretion, prescribe, but in no event more than 45 days from a purchase. If you believe that an ACH debit or debit card charge initiated by Jassby occurred in error, there was an error in the amount of a debit or charge, or any other error, you must notify Jassby by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org within 60 days of the date of posting of the ACH debit or debit card charge in question.
- Discount Codes. From time to time, the Company may offer discount codes to users of Child Accounts, in the form of dollar credits, in varying amounts, to be applied to purchases made by the User of the Child Account. At its sole discretion, the Company may apply conditions to the receipt and use of the credit by the User of the Child Account, for example, to incentivize certain interactions between the user of the Child Account and the Service. By using the Service, you authorize us to apply any such discount codes to purchases made from your child’s Child Account.
- Children. The Service is not directed to users under the age of 13 without the consent of a Parent. The Service does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without consent of a Parent. If you are under the age of 13, you are not permitted to register as a User or to send personal information to Jassby without consent of a Parent, other than to the extent needed to obtain a Parent's consent.
In order to use certain parts of the Service, you may be required to provide us with your name and email address or other screen name or user name that functions as online contact information, create a password and register with us. To the extent you are using the Service on behalf of an organization, you may need to also provide us with information in order to confirm, or permit us to confirm, any relationship between you and such organization. We may also request additional information from you. You represent and warrant to us that you will provide us with accurate, current and complete registration information. You are responsible for your registration, and for all use of the Service using any User credentials or passwords issued to you or chosen by you. You will keep all such credentials and passwords confidential.
- Fees and Orders
The Service, or certain features of the Service, may be available only if certain subscription fees or other fees (collectively, "Fees") are paid by you, or for your benefit (e.g., we may permit a third party to pay certain Fees for your benefit). If you purchase any subscription plan for the Service or certain features of the Service, you must pay any applicable Fees. You will provide us (or our designated third-party payment provider) with accurate and valid credit card or other payment information and update your credit card or other payment information in the event any information provided becomes invalid or incomplete. If any charge is rejected by our bank or payment providers, you are still liable to pay the Fees. We retain the right to charge interest on any overdue balance at the rate of 1.5% per month, or the maximum amount permitted by law (if lower). You will also be responsible for our reasonable costs of collection, including attorney’s fees, if we deem it necessary to take any legal or administrative action to collect unpaid Fees. We reserve the right to accept, refuse or cancel any orders placed through the Service, without liability or justification. We will refund you in case your order was cancelled by us after your credit card or other payment method has been charged.

These features will generally be designed to share information with others. For example, your friends and others who have access to view information about you on Facebook may be able to see (on Facebook and on the Service) that you are a user of the Service, and other information about your use of the Service. You may also be able to see similar information about your Facebook friends who are users of the Service. Please pay careful attention to your relevant Social Media Account settings in your Service account as well as your privacy settings in your Social Media Accounts which will impact this feature, when available, and may give you some control over the information that is shared and with whom it is shared.
