The Matchmaking Service assists Users in finding and searching for professionals within the Network.

  • The Matchmaking Service and Form Submissions.  

In order to use the Matchmaking Service, Users must fill out and complete a form submission, which asks Users to provide information such as their name, email address, zip code and other information about the type of professional the User is seeking to find. We are not liable for any damages caused to any Users of the Matchmaking Service. It is the User’s responsibility to vet the professionals in the Network prior to working with any professionals and therefore Women’s Membership Network LLC assumes no liability for any damages caused to Users from any of the professionals in the Network.

Women’s Membership Network LLC has established a Privacy Policy that explains to Users how their personal information, including information submitted in the form submission fields to use the Matchmaking Service, is collected and used. Our Privacy Policy is located at here. You represent that You have the legal authority to disclose such information to our Matchmaking Service.

WMN/WRK may offer members one of the following membership plans: Annual DIY Access, Annual Concierge Pro, Annual Concierge Premium, monthly access, a la carte access and lifetime (“Plans”). You may log in to the Service to manage your account and confirm which Plan you currently have. You may learn about the various benefits of each plan here.  The benefits of Your Plan are available only while Your Plan is active and Your WMN/WRK account is in good standing. We reserve the right to modify the Plans at any time in our sole discretion. The details of Your selected Plan, including the price and the various benefits offered therein, might be different than those details applicable to another new or existing User who purchased the same Plan in the same zip code.

SECTION 2: NO LEGAL, FINANCIAL OR MEDICAL ADVICE
By using the Service, you understand and agree that the Service as well as Women’s Membership Network are not a law firm or an attorney, doctor, financial professional or health and wellness professional, may not perform services performed by an attorney, doctor, financial professional or health and wellness professional, and its Content is not a substitute for the advice or services of an attorney, doctor, financial or health and wellness professional.

The Service and Women’s Membership Network LLC are not responsible for the professional advice of its Content or professional PROVIDERS that are members of the WMN/WRK PROFESSIONAL Membership Network.  By requesting to be matched with a professional that is part of WMN/WRK’s Professional Membership Network, you agree and acknowledge that the Service and Women’s Membership Network LLC are not responsible for any legal, medical, financial or health and wellness advice or services provided by any affiliated Professional Providers and agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Service from any claims that may arise from use of any affiliated professional provider member.

We do not endorse nor are We liable for any Content, products, goods or services available or unavailable from or through a Professional Provider (which includes, but is not limited to, attorneys, doctors, financial professionals and health care and wellness providers). This includes any and all information listed in the Professional Provider’s profile page. You agree that should You use or rely on such Content, products, goods or services, available or unavailable from, or through any Professional Provider, Women’s Membership Network LLC is not responsible or liable, indirectly or directly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with such use or reliance. Your dealings with any Professional Provider, and any other terms, conditions, representations or warranties associated with such dealings, are between You and such Professional Provider exclusively and do not involve Women’s Membership Network LLC. You should make whatever investigation or other resources that You deem necessary or appropriate before hiring or engaging Professional Providers.

SECTION 5: SERVICE FEES AND BILLING METHODS; AUTOMATIC RENEWAL

  • Subscription Fee.

We will charge you a subscription fee in order to provide the Service. Your subscription fee is the amount You were charged for one term of Your Subscription or Plan, not including any promotions or discounts that may have been applied (the “Subscription Fee”).  For this or other reasons, the Subscription Fee might be different than the amount paid by another new or existing User who purchased the same Plan in the same zip code. By registering for a Plan, you authorize Women’s Membership Network LLC via our third-party payment processors to charge the credit card(s), debit cards(s) or other payment information that you freely and voluntarily enter on our website to use the Service. The payment authorized is for the amount indicated in your Plan only. You further certify that you are the authorized user of the credit card(s), debit card(s) or payment information that you freely and voluntarily enter on Our website to use the Service and that you will not dispute the payment with your credit card company or bank; so long as the payment corresponds with the terms in this Agreement.

  • Automatic Renewal.

    If you have subscribed for any monthly or annual Plan, Your Subscription Fee will automatically renew for (1) month or (1) year periods, depending on Your Plan, until you cancel and you accept all responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation, including, where applicable, any charges processed by the Company after the expiration date of your credit card, debit card or payment information. Your renewal Subscription Fee will be charged at the then current rate for the Plan you selected and will not include or carry forward any prior discounts applied.
  • No Refunds & Cancelling Your Plan.

You may cancel your Plan and therefore Subscription Fee at any time by logging into Your account on the Service and updating the terms of Your Plan.  You may also contact us at contact@wmnlegal.com and we will assist you in cancelling Your Plan. Upon cancellation, you will not be charged for any renewal periods and your Plan and therefore Subscription Fee will not continue past the then current period. However, all Subscription Fees paid prior to termination of Your Plan, including those paid in advance for one month, one year or multi-year periods, are non-refundable and you shall be responsible for any changes to your chosen payment method for Your Plan prior to your cancellation.

  • Incentives & Discounts.

We may from time to time in our sole discretion offer certain product or service incentives and/or discounts (“Incentives”) to select one of the Plans (e.g. a free trial week).  We may at any time for any reason discontinue any such Incentives. We are not responsible for replacing any lost Incentives.

SECTION 6: ACCOUNT SECURITY
You will be required to create a user ID and password when You register Your account. Your user ID and password may only be used by You. You are solely responsive for maintaining and protecting the confidentiality of Your user ID and password, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under Your user ID and password.

SECTION 7: COMMUNICATIONS.
By creating an account on our service, you agree to subscribe to newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information we may send. However, you may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.

SECTION 8: PURCHASES AND THIRD-PARTY PAYMENT PLATFORMS
If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Service (“Purchase”), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information. You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.

The service may employ the use of third party services for the purpose of facilitating payment and the completion of Purchases. By submitting your information, you grant us the right to provide the information to these third parties subject to our Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected, or if you fail to comply with the terms of this Terms of Use, or our Privacy Policy.

SECTION 9: WMN / WRK, WMN LEGAL, WMN FINANCE, WMN DOCTOR; USE OF DESCRIPTIVE TERMS
The term “experience”, “experienced”, “trusted” or other adjective in connection to professionals affiliated with WMN / WRK, WMN Legal, WMN Finance and WMN Doctor as used on the Site and in other communications in reference to third party professionals participating in WMN / WRK’s Professional Network means that each professional has been vetted by Us according to our vetting criteria as outlined here. These terms such as “experience”, “experienced” or “trusted” are not intended to be a comparison to any other professional’s services or qualifications. You are responsible for vetting your own Professional Provider based on your own needs.

NOT A PROFESSIONAL REFERRAL SERVICE
The Matchmaking Service is NOT A DOCTOR OR LAWYER REFERRAL SERVICE. We earn revenue from professionals who have been invited into our network in the form of membership dues to be listed in our online directory, and we do not collect a fee from services provided to you by our member professionals. We are a platform that facilitates finding, matching and communications between professional providers and our users.  We charge an annual membership fee for the professional provider to have access to advertise her services via the platform, regardless of the number of clients or patients acquired and independent of any fees that may be charged to clients or patients. Therefore, the fee charged is solely for use of the platform and is unrelated to any fees charged to clients or patients.  WMN / WRK, WMN Legal, WMN Doctor and WMN Finance do not and never will share in any fees charged to you by your professional provider.  We also do not permit professional providers to pay us to recommend their services.  We do not endorse or recommend individual professional providers in any way. Users are matched with professional providers based on the type of professional provider they are looking for, state where they live and by proximity/physical location to the professional provider.  Additionally, because users contact the professional providers directly at their own, voluntary discretion and because no initial contact is made by the professional providers either through Our platform or facilitated by Our platform, we therefore do not permit nor allow the solicitation of clients/patients by professional providers.  Per the above, WMN / WRK, WMN Legal and WMN Doctor are not a Lawyer or Doctor Referral Service and is therefore compliant with the American Bar Association Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

SECTION 10: AVAILABILITY, ERRORS AND INACCURACIES
We are constantly updating product and service offerings on the Service. We may experience delays in updating information on the Service and in our advertising on other web sites. The information found on the Service may contain errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Products or services may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable on the Service and we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information found on the Service.  We therefore reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.

SECTION 11: CONTESTS, SWEEPSTAKES AND PROMOTIONS
Any contests, sweepstakes or other promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) made available through the Service may be governed by rules that are separate from these Terms & Conditions. If you participate in any Promotions, please review the applicable rules as well as our Privacy Policy. If the rules for a Promotion conflict with these Terms and Conditions, the Promotion rules will apply.

SECTION 12: ACCOUNTS
When You create an account with us, You guarantee that you are above the age of 18, and that the information You provide us is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Inaccurate, incomplete, or obsolete information may result in the immediate termination of your account on the Service.

SECTION 16: INDEMNIFICATION
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Women’s Membership Network LLC and its licensee and licensors, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees), resulting from or arising out of a) your use and access of the Service and use of any Professional Provider, by you or any person using your account and password; b) a breach of these Terms, or c) Content posted on the Service.

SECTION 17: LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In no event shall Women’s Membership Network LLC, nor its directors, employees, partners, agents, suppliers, or affiliates, be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages, including without limitation, loss of profits, data, use, goodwill, or other intangible losses, resulting from (i) your access to or use of or inability to access or use the Service; (ii) any conduct or content of any third party on the Service; (iii) any content obtained from the Service; (iv) any use of a Professional Provider affiliated with the Service; and (v) unauthorized access, use or alteration of your transmissions or content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence) or any other legal theory, whether or not we have been informed of the possibility of such damage, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

You understand and agree that Your access to the Service represents a substantial portion of the value You receive from Your Subscription Fee. THEREFORE, TO THE EXTENT WOMEN’S MEMBERSHIP NETWORK LLC IS FOUND LIABILE FOR ANYTHING RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR THE USER OF THE SERVICE, WOMEN’S MEMBERSHIP NETWORK’S LIABILITY FOR DAMANGES WILL NOT EXCEED THE EQUIVALENT OF ONE (1) MONTH OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP FEE.

SECTION 18: DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
Your use of the Service is at your sole risk. The Service is provided on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. The Service is provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement or course of performance.

SECTION 20: DISPUTE RESOLUTION
By agreeing to these Terms of Use for Users, you agree that any and all disputes arising pursuant to Your use of the service, the Site or any other dispute which relates in any manner whatsoever to this Agreement which cannot be resolved in a reasonable time by discussions shall be submitted to arbitration in Los Angeles, California before a sole arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) selected from Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc., Los Angeles, California, or its successor (“JAMS”), or if JAMS is no longer able to supply the arbitrator, such arbitrator shall be selected from the American Arbitration Association, and shall be conducted in accordance with the rules and procedures of JAMS. JAMS is the exclusive forum for the resolution of such dispute; provided, however, that provisional injunctive relief may, but need not, be sought by either Party in a court of law while arbitration proceedings are pending, and any provisional injunctive relief granted by such court shall remain effective until the matter is finally determined by the Arbitrator.  Final resolution of any dispute through arbitration may include any remedy or relief which the Arbitrator deems just and equitable, including any and all remedies provided by applicable state or federal statutes.

At the conclusion of the arbitration, the Arbitrator shall issue a written decision that sets forth the essential findings and conclusions upon which the Arbitrator’s award or decision is based.  Any award or relief granted by the Arbitrator hereunder shall be final and binding on the Parties hereto and may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction.  You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are hereby waiving any rights to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either of the Parties against the other in connection with any matter whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with this Agreement.

SECTION 21: GOVERNING LAW
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of California, United States, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.  Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights.

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have had between us regarding the Service.
