5. ACCOUNT

Account registration requires you to provide to Zym certain personal information, such as but not limited to your name, email address, mobile phone number and age, as well as at least one valid payment method. By creating a Member account, you agree to
(a) provide accurate, current and complete account information,

Each Member may register one account only and you warrant that you will not create duplicate and/or fraudulent accounts. Zym reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Zym account and your access to our Services.

You may also register to use Zym Services by logging into your account with certain third-party social networking sites (including, but not limited to, Facebook, each such account a “Third-Party Account”), via our Site or Application.

You may not transfer your membership of the Site or Application to any third party.

Zym does not provide guarantees on uninterrupted usage and access to the Site or Application. We reserve the right to modify the Site or Application at any time, without liability for any modifications that cause any disruption to you or any third party.

You acknowledge and agree that we are not liable for any disagreement, complaint or claim that you may have in respect of any agreement between you and an Associate as we are not a party to any such agreement.

7. PAYMENT

You understand that usage of the Services will result in charges to you for the services you receive, or facilities you make use of from an Associate (“Charges”). The price of the Services will be quoted on the Site or Application. Zym reserves the right to adjust prices for Services at any time, in which case the Zym platform will be updated accordingly. You accept and agree that (a) prices quoted on the Application may not be the final amount charged to you as this is dependent on your usage time of the Services offered by an Associate; (b) prices will vary from Associate to Associate; and (c) prices applicable may substantially increase during times of high utilisation. In this scenario, Zym will use reasonable efforts to inform you of any changes in price regardless of your awareness of such changes in price or the amounts thereof.

You acknowledge and accept that clicking the ‘CHECK IN’ button on the Application, constitutes the demonstration of intent to use Services offered by Associates, authorising us to facilitate any Charges if you use any Services and that these Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Zym. In order to complete the billing transaction, you must request the Associate to process your Check Out. Members agree that failure in arranging the Associate to perform a Check Out may result in a higher Charge and activity time. Upon a successful Check Out, Zym will facilitate your payment of the applicable Charges on behalf of the Associate as disclosed payment collection agent for the Associate (as principal). Payment of any Charges in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the Associate. All Charges include VAT and any other taxes if applicable.

When you provide us with your payment information, we transmit it via an encrypted connection to our payment processor, Stripe. By making any payments through the Site or Application, you acknowledge that you are authorised to use the designated payment method and agree and accept Stripe’s Terms of Service. All Charges are due immediately and payment will be facilitated as soon as practicable by Zym using the preferred payment method configured in your Account. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be invalid, expired or otherwise, you agree that Zym may, as the Associate’s disclosed payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available. You may also edit your payment method information on the Application. If we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right, but are not obligated, to terminate your access to the Site, Application and Services.

In addition to charges for the Services, some of our Associates may also charge for equipment or other amenities, including but not limited to, towel rental, nutritional supplements and spa facilities. You agree that you will process any such additional charges directly with the Associate.

You are responsible for all third-party charges and fees associated with connecting to our Site and Application, and using the Services, including fees such as, but not limited to, internet service provider fees, mobile data and telephone charges.

8. PROMOTIONS

Zym may, in Zym’s sole discretion, create promotional codes that may be redeemed for Account credit, subject to any additional terms that Zym establishes on a per-promotional basis (“Promo Codes”).

9. REFUND POLICY

Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Zym. If Zym determines that a Member’s claim for refund is valid, we will give you a Promo Code for the disputed amount that you may use within the Site and Application in accordance with Condition 8.
