You understand and acknowledge that any purchase of advertising or other paid features from gatello will not influence the Recommendation Software or otherwise allow or enable You, directly or indirectly, to alter reviews or impact whether, where, or how reviews appear on Gatello.
The following Sections 2 and 3 apply if you are a resident of the United States or Canada only:
Services offered as part of the subscription
A subscription to GATELLO gives access to all requests posted by USERS in the field of expertise provided in their Profile. Businesses are free to interact with USERS with the aim of offering them their services. GATELLO cannot guarantee a minimum volume of Requests from USERS.
As GATELLO is purely a platform for connecting people, GATELLO SAS does not guarantee that sending a Quote will automatically result in a subsequent transaction.
The actual signing of contracts with USERS depends on factors which are specific to each Business, such as their responsiveness, their experience, how suitable their profile is for the Request, or the value for money of the services provided.
Price and frequency
Subscription can be monthly, quarterly or annual.
The cost and frequency of the subscription can be seen at all times in the Business’s Account.
This subscription cancellation may only be done in the Business’s Profile, in the Account settings, using the button specifically for this purpose. Just sending an email to customer services, or a letter, or any other expression of will is not deemed to be a valid means of cancelling a subscription, and therefore the subscription will still be renewed.
Once a subscription period has begun, refunds will not be made.
Payment of subscriptions
Payment for subscriptions is due at the start of each period.
In order to make payment, the Business undertakes to provide a valid payment method on their Profile, meaning that the subscription can be automatically paid. Payment methods which are accepted include credit cards or payments through a payment partner recognised by GATELLO SAS.
Removing a payment method from the Profile does not mean the termination of the contract (for information on how to cancel a subscription see Article 3.2.6). If a Business removes a payment method, they must provide a different payment method on their Profile as soon as possible, in order to meet their contractual commitments.
In the event of non-payment by a Business, GATELLO reserves the right to suspend contacts with USERS, as per an exception for breach of contract. When the Business redresses the situation, contacts will be restored.
If the Business fails to redress the situation, GATELLO reserves the right to recover the sums due by every possible means, including by legal proceedings. Businesses also agree that in the event of amounts outstanding, GATELLO will have the right to deduct the sums due if a new payment method is provided by the Business.
Payment for subscriptions is still owed in the event of a general downturn in economic activity, regardless of the cause.
Specifically, GATELLO SAS and the Business agree that the occurrence of an epidemic and restrictive measures put in place by government authorities, of any nature whatsoever, will not be considered as a case of an Act of God, temporarily or permanently releasing them from their obligations.
In addition, the Business agrees that inability to use the services provided by GATELLO for personal reasons (illness, strikes, etc.) will not release them from their obligations to GATELLO SAS.
The Business cannot cancel their subscription before the end of the period. They may however, decide not to renew their subscription at the end of the period at any time, as per the terms set out in art. 3.2.3, giving notice of at least 2 working days before the end of the period.
GATELLO SAS may cancel a subscription in the event of violation of the law or breach of the present Terms and Conditions by the Business, without prejudice to any other sanctions or actions provided by the law.
In particular, a breach of articles 3.1, 3.2.1, 3.2.4 of the present Terms and Conditions may give rise to immediate unilateral termination by GATELLO SAS, without any due process of law or any compensation from GATELLO.
Specific provisions with regard to subscriptions
A free trial may be offered to some Businesses for a specific period. GATELLO SAS reserves the right to offer or not to offer a free trial, at its sole discretion.
Access to a free trial is subject to the provision of a valid payment method.
Other than special written exceptions to the contrary, the free trial automatically carries on to a subscription at the end of the trial period. This subscription is then subject to the rules set out in article 3.2.
The Business may refuse to subscribe, by strictly following the formalities for cancelling subscriptions set out in art. 3.2.3 (a request must be sent, only from their Profile), and at least two days before the end of the free trial.
Some Businesses may be offered a Premium Account.
Businesses who have signed up to Premium Account have two advantages over other Businesses:
A featured profile for Client searches
Priority customer service.
A Premium Account involves taking out an additional subscription, in addition to the basic subscription. The amount and frequency are displayed in the Business’s Profile.
The subscription to a Premium Account is governed by the same rules as a basic subscription namely with regard to renewal and payment.
A Premium Account may also begin with a Free Trial, with the same conditions as for free trials of the basic package.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY SINCE IT LIMITS THE LIABILITY OF THE GATELLO ENTITIES TO YOU. FOR CLARITY, THE BELOW APPLIES IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY DETAILED IN SECTION 12 OF THE TERMS.
The federal Communications Decency Act (47 U.S. Code § 230) limits the liability of interactive computer services, like gatello, for their role in publishing third-party Content, including consumer reviews. Additionally, anti-SLAPP laws, such as Del. Code Ann. tit. 10 § 8136 protects from legal actions involving public petition and participation.
FOR CLARITY, THIS SECTION GOVERNS ANY BUSINESS CLAIM BROUGHT BY YOU OR GATELLO. ANY CLAIM NOT SUBJECT TO THIS SECTION IS INSTEAD GOVERNED BY SECTION 14 OF THE TERMS.
19.1 Except for Excluded Business Claims, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to: (a) these Terms, or the breach thereof; or (b) your access to or use of your Business Account Business Site; (each such controversy or claim, a "Business Claim"), shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator will issue a reasoned award in writing, including all findings of fact and law upon which the award was made. The arbitrator will not have the power to commit errors of law, and the award may be vacated or corrected through judicial review by a court of competent jurisdiction under the Delaware Arbitration Act for any such error. "Excluded Business Claims" means Claims related to intellectual property (like copyrights and trademarks) or violations of Section 7 of the Terms of Service (Representations and Warranties).
19.2 Business Claims shall be heard by a single arbitrator. Arbitrations will be held Delaware, but the parties may choose for themselves whether to appear in person, by phone, or through the submission of documents. The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware. The prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees.
19.3 NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, FOR ANY BUSINESS CLAIM THAT IS NOT SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION EXCLUDED BUSINESS CLAIMS, YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT AND CONSENT TO THE PERSONAL AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION IN, AND THE EXCLUSIVE VENUE OF, THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED WITHIN DELAWARE, WHICH IS THE PLACE OF PERFORMANCE OF THESE BUSINESS TERMS.
19.4 YOU AND GATELLO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN BUSINESS CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN THEIR RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND GATELLO AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE BUSINESS CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. IF A BUSINESS CLAIM IMPLICATES THIS SECTION, AND THIS SECTION IS FOUND TO BE INVALID, UNENFORCEABLE OR ILLEGAL BY A COURT, SUCH BUSINESS CLAIM MUST BE ADJUDICATED BY A COURT AND NOT BY AN ARBITRATOR.
