ConnectForLunch is a business networking service for business owners and professionals, owned and operated by CloverKeys, Inc. We believe that the healthiest businesses have the most diverse networks, and have established those networks on a personal basis. Through ConnectForLunch's proprietary software, business owners and professionals can meet and get to know each other over lunch in a relaxed, comfortable and focused environment. In this setting, they can enhance their own and each other's business, become each other's clients and provide each other with referrals.
You must be 18 years or over to register as a User of the ConnectForLunch Service or use the Website. Use of the ConnectForLunch Service is void where prohibited. By using the Website, you represent that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement and to abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
You represent that the business categories that you select at the time of registration are your primary source of income.
To ensure diversity, ConnectForLunch may from time to time limit the number of users in a particular business category. Our current guidelines limit participation to no more than two representatives or employees of a particular organization.
The purpose of ConnectForLunch is to provide a service that facilitates and encourages business networking on a personal level. For that reason, participation in the ConnectForLunch Service is for persons, rather than for organizations, companies and/or businesses per se. Organizations, companies and/or businesses may not become Users, but employees or owners of businesses are encouraged to become individual Users of the ConnectForLunch Service. ConnectForLunch User accounts are restricted to the personal use by that User, who is a representative of the business. Sharing usernames and/or passwords with other individuals who are not Users of ConnectForLunch will result in termination of your ConnectForLunch account. Illegal and/or unauthorized uses of the Website, including collecting usernames and/or email addresses of Users by electronic or other means for the purpose of sending unsolicited email and unauthorized framing of or linking to the Website will be investigated, and appropriate legal action will be taken, including without limitation, civil, criminal and injunctive redress.
You can find the specific details regarding your ConnectForLunch membership by clicking on the "Your Account" link, located at the top of the pages of the ConnectForLunch website.
We encourage the use of ConnectForLunch through free trials. Free trials last for two lunches over a four-week period or as otherwise specifically stated for eligible members. To view the specific details regarding your free trial, if any, click on the "Your Account" link located at the top of every ConnectForLunch website page and click "Subscription Terms and Details."
If you wish to continue using ConnectForLunch after your free trial is complete, the next time you RSVP for lunch you will be asked to choose a subscription plan. At the time when you enter your credit card information, your monthly recurring billing period will begin. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your subscription plan until you cancel or put your billing on hold. You may cancel your membership or put your billing on hold at anytime by logging into your ConnectForLunch account and clicking the appropriate link on your Account Summary page.
To view the specific details regarding your subscription, click the "Subscription Terms and Details" link on the "Your Account" page.
We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered subscription plans. Unless otherwise stated differently, "month" or "monthly" refers to your billing cycle (See "Billing" below).
When you start your ConnectForLunch subscription, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a monthly subscription fee, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the ConnectForLunch service to the Payment Method you provided when you started your subscription (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).
We automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription. In the event your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying member on January 31st, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28th.
For those on a quarterly billing plan:
We automatically bill your Payment Method each quarter on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription. In the event your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying member on January 31st, your Payment Method would next be billed on April 30th.
All fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, bonus lunch or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by clicking on the "Your Account" button, available at the top of the pages of the ConnectForLunch web site. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you authorize us to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Your ConnectForLunch subscription will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription or put your billing on hold before your subscription renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month's fees to your Payment Method. We will bill the monthly subscription fee plus any applicable tax to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).
You may cancel your membership to ConnectForLunch at any time, and cancellation will be effective immediately. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS. To cancel, click the words "Cancel Account" on the "Your Account" page and follow the instructions for cancellation under the heading "Cancel Subscription." To put your billing on hold, click on the "Put Billing on Hold" link on the same page.
We reserve the right to terminate your account for any or no reason.
Introductory trial period: If you miss two scheduled lunches during your trial period, we may terminate your trial period.
After the trial period: If you miss three lunches within a three-month period, we may ask you to observe a one-month suspension before resuming your membership. Your account will not be charged during such a suspension.
If you have scheduled a lunch and are not able to attend, please contact your lunch partners ASAP via the Cannot Attend link in your lunch reservation email. You may not send a substitute in your place. The quality of participants' experience is directly related to participants attending lunch when they say they are going to.
