Hello and welcome! We are Chillow! Our legal name is Chillow Inc. and we refer to ourselves in these Terms of Service (“Agreement”) as “Chillow”, “we”, “us” or “our”. This Agreement governs your use of the Chillow mobile device application, website, and related services (collectively, the “Services”), including how you can and cannot use our Services.
This is a legally binding contract between you and Chillow, so please be sure to read it carefully.
First, we want to highlight some important things about this Agreement:
- By accessing the Services you: (i) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the terms of this Agreement; (ii) agree to be bound by them, and (iii) represent and warrant that you are age 18 or older and have the authority to accept them. If you don't agree with or can't accept all of the terms of this Agreement, you MAY NOT download, install, use, or participate in the Services.
- THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS PROVISIONS THAT GOVERN HOW CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND CHILLOW CAN BE RESOLVED (SEE SECTION 19 BELOW). THESE PROVISIONS REQUIRE YOU TO SUBMIT CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST CHILLOW TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS, GROUP OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING (our lawyers insisted that we use all caps for that one).
1. The Services
We collect several types of information you access and use the Services:
- Services. The Services provide a marketplace platform to enable persons offering a lease or sublease (“Lessors”) for a room (“Room”) in a house or apartment (“Residence”) and potential lessees (“Roommates”) to match up based on Lessor and Roommate location, preferences, amenities, and to facilitate Lease payments through ChillowPay, provide reviews of Lessors and Roommates, and communicate via in-app messaging. You authorize Chillow to match you with potential Lessors and Roommates based on factors such as your location, age, gender, rental preferences, and platform efficiency. You acknowledge and agree that your decision(s) to enter into any lease or sublease (whether as Lessor or Roommate) for a Room (“Lease”) is made by you in your sole discretion and Chillow is not a party to, and will not have any rights or obligations under, any Lease or other contractual relationship between any Lessor and Roommate.
- License Grant. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Chillow grants you a limited, personal, non-commercial, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to: (A) access and use the Services; and (B) access and use any content, information and related materials that may be made available through the Services.
