These terms are an important agreement that may affect your rights. Please read them.
Thanks for using ZipLawn for all of your Lawn Care needs. We appreciate how hard it is to organize and manage lawn care and landscaping contractors to support your life, business, and property and it is our goal to provide "Lawn Care Made Simple".
ZipLawn understands how important it is for you to understand your legal rights and responsibilities as it relates to your use of our Site and/or Services. We spell out those rights and responsibilities completely in our Conditions of Use below. We also know that legal documents can be confusing and take time to read, so we have summarized the basics of the Conditions of Use in plain English here. Remember, the Conditions of Use are what you actually agree to when you use ZipLawn and this summary is not a substitute for reading the actual terms themselves.
Our goal is to put you back in charge of your life and business so that you are no longer at the mercy of contractors who never show up when they say they will, do not perform at the level you expect, and charge you by rule-of-thumb. With that change in accountability come some responsibilities:
We ask that you please keep the Service Area in a maintainable state. This includes, but is not limited to, providing us access, keeping it free of objects, debris and trash, animals, any animal or pet waste, and standing water.
Additionally, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to not service your property due to excessive weeds, insects or disease. We are happy to work with you on a program to eradicate the problem, however please understand that if we mow a lawn with these problems, we must take that mower out of service to thouroughly clean it or risk spreading your problem to our other customer's lawns.
If for any reason we are unable to complete all or part your Services, due to no fault of our own, your account will be subject to a $25 trip charge per occurrence. This includes cancelling any of your Services once the team has arrived at your property.
We are committed to making it as easy as possible to schedule services and to work with you to resolve any disputes you may have as to the quality or timeliness of service that you receive. Since the services will be completed on your property, obviously there are some risks associated with using our services. ZipLawn isn't responsible for incidental damage or injury that might happen to you or others or to your property as a consequence of your use of our Site or Services.
IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE CONDITIONS OF USE, PLEASE EXIT THE SITE NOW AND DO NOT USE ANY OF THE SERVICES. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH THESE TERMS BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES.
Our goal is to provide excellent service and effective products at reasonable prices. While we try our best to maintain our quoted prices for the season, they are subject to change. Your price will be reflected on your order and you will receive a copy of your order 2-3 days prior to your scheduled service date. We review our prices before the start of each season to account for the costs of providing our services to you. We never like to raise our prices, but unfortunately it is sometimes necessary to account for rising labor and insurance costs, equipment prices and fuel costs.
ZipLawn.com is a website ("Site") made available by ZipLawn, Inc. ("ZipLawn", "we", "us", or "our") that acts as a communications platform to help you get "Services" completed by facilitating communication, scoping, pricing, scheduling, payment, and dispute resolution. By using the Site or requesting us to complete any Service, you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions ("Conditions of Use"). IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE CONDITIONS OF USE, PLEASE EXIT THE SITE NOW AND DO NOT USE ANY OF THE SERVICES. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH THESE TERMS BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES.
These Conditions of Use are effective as of September 25, 2019, but we may change these Conditions of Use from time to time. You agree that it is your responsibility to review these Conditions of Use each time you use the Site to arrange Services and to familiarize yourself with any modifications. If you use the Site or any Services after any modifications have been made to the Conditions of Use, such use constitutes your acknowledgement and agreement to abide and be bound by the revised Conditions of Use. You can review the most current version of the Conditions of Use at any time at: https://www.ZipLawn.com/legal.php. For questions about the Conditions of Use please email email@example.com
These Conditions of Use are in addition to any other agreements between you and ZipLawn, including any customer, contractor or any other agreements that govern your use of information, content, tools, products and services available on or through the Site.
Violation of any of the terms contained herein may result in the suspension or termination of your account without a right to any refund.
Description of Services
Our Site is a communications platform that helps facilitate the completion of property-based Services (the "Services") significantly reducing the leg work that would otherwise be required for you to arrange and pay for services directly with one or more contractors. Once you select a Service, our Site will locate one or more contractor(s) to perform the Service ("Contractor") based on the timeline you designate for completion of the Service and will arrange with the Contractors to complete the Service. Once the Service has been completed, you will have an opportunity to review the Contractor's work and to dispute the completion or quality of the Services. While ZipLawn and the Site play an integral role in the completion of the Services, ZipLawn does not physically complete any of the Services but instead contracts with Contractors to complete this work. Contractors are independent contractors of ZipLawn and not within our direct control. We reserve the sole right to either modify or discontinue the Site or any of the Services or features that might be available at any time with or without notice to you.
To create an account and register for Services, you must be 18 years or older, provide your full legal name, a valid email address for you, a valid phone number for you, and any other information requested to complete the signup process ("Registration Data"). The requirements for Registration Data may change from time to time, and you are required to keep your Registration Data accurate. By providing Registration Data you represent and warrant that you are not a competitor of ZipLawn. Contractors and other entities will need portions of your Registration Data to perform your request for Service. Consequently, you expressly consent to have limited portions of your Registration Data sent to Contractors whom ZipLawn deems qualified to perform the requested Service. Disclosed portions of Registration Data include, but are not limited to, your name, contact phone number, email address, and physical address of the job location to the Contractor. By providing your information to us, or by submitting a service request, you are requesting, and you expressly consent to being contacted by us and by our Contractors via phone, fax, email, mail or other reasonable means, at any of your contact numbers or addresses, even if you are listed on any federal, state, provincial or other applicable "Do Not Call" list, in order that the Contractors may reasonably address matters pertaining to your service request. If at any time you would like to revoke our consent to contact you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME.". You will need to notify the Contractors separately as well.
Your use of the Site may be monitored by us, and the resultant information may be used by ZipLawn for its internal business purposes or in accordance with the rules of any applicable regulatory or self-regulatory organization.
You are the sole authorized user of your account. You are solely and fully responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, including your account password. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not gain access to your password and account. You are also responsible for all activities that occur in connection with your account. If you suspect that any unauthorized party is using your account, you agree to notify us immediately. Also, you may not transfer or share your account with anyone, and we reserve the right to immediately terminate your account if you do transfer or share your account.
When you visit our Site and select a Service, you agree to pay us the applicable fees indicated to you through the Site. All fees for Services will be collected through the ZipLawn Site following completion of the Service. Any funds received may be deposited to ZipLawn's general account and not be held in escrow or otherwise segregated until the Service is complete. ZipLawn reserves the rights to use such funds for its ordinary course of business. If the information you input is inaccurate, we reserve the right to later increase the bid and the cost of the Services to reflect the actual conditions of a Service. We reserve the right to increase a Service's fees or institute new charges upon reasonable notice to you. A fee of $40, in addition to any fees debited against us by our financial institutions, or the maximum amount permitted by law, will be assessed to you for any returned payment and will become immediately due and payable.
When a Service has been completed, your payment for the Service will be collected by ZipLawn and will not be subject to refund. Alternatively, if you do not dispute a Service by 5:00 p.m. (Central Time) two (2) business days following the day the Service is completed, the Service will be deemed to have been completed to your satisfaction and your payment to ZipLawn will be deemed earned in full. All payments for Services must be paid through the Site. Payments made directly to a Contractor are NOT permitted.
A valid credit card or debit card, or bank account must remain on file for Service fees. After selecting a Service, ZipLawn will pre-authorize a charge on your selected payment method for all costs, fees, or expenses associated with the selected Service. You hereby authorize us to charge your selected payment method for such amounts. Although all payments made to ZipLawn are generally non-refundable, we, in our sole discretion and in exceptional circumstances, may nevertheless refund the cost of the Service or credit your account if the selected Service is unperformed or canceled before it can be performed, or is not performed to your satisfaction.
ZipLawn will collect sales tax from the customer by adding sales tax to the Service price and will remit the sales tax to the particular state, if applicable.
The following behavior or acts are strictly forbidden on the Site and may result in immediate account termination:
You are bound by these Conditions of Use at all times while you use the Site or any Services. You agree that we may, in our sole discretion, terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Site or Services with or without notice and for any reason, including, without limitation, breach of these Conditions of Use, abuse of the Services, or past due payments. If ZipLawn terminates or suspends your right to use the Service for any of these reasons, you will not be entitled to any refund even if you have prepaid for certain Services. In addition to terminating or suspending your account, ZipLawn reserves the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation pursuing civil, criminal, and injunctive redress. Furthermore, any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity may be grounds for terminating your relationship and may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities.
Upon termination or suspension, regardless of the reasons, therefore, your right to use the Site immediately ceases, and you acknowledge and agree that we may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or this Site. We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any claims or damages arising out of any termination or suspension or any other actions taken by us in connection with such termination or suspension.
To cancel an account, please send a written notice of termination to ZIPLAWN, 201 E Pearl St, Suite B202, Granbury, Texas 76048 or email notice of termination to email@example.com. If you terminate your account, your account will be disabled within 14 days. All sections which by their nature should survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect subsequent to and notwithstanding the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
Services you select to be completed through the Site are completed by third-party Contractors assigned to your Service by the Site. You are not required to work with the Contractor assigned to you through the Site and may reject the Contractor and have the Site identify an alternative Contractor to complete the Service, provided, however, that you reject the Contractor prior to the Contractor's timely commencement of your Service. We are not an employment service and none of the Contractors are employees of ZipLawn. Additionally, no agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
When Contractors register with the Site, they are required to input information and to make representations and warranties to ZipLawn that they have all necessary licensing to complete the Services with which the Contractor is associated on the Site; that the Contractor's state filings are current; that neither the Contractor nor any of its employees and agents have been convicted of a felony within the past three years, ever been convicted of a sex offense, and is not listed on any sex offender registry; that there are no civil judgments against Contractor; and that the Contractor (either alone or with ZipLawn's general liability insurance) has adequate insurance coverage to help protect you. The contractor screening is currently a "self-reporting" system and ZipLawn is not responsible for verifying the information provided by any Contractor; provided, however, ZipLawn reserves the right to do so. ZipLawn may require, but is not obligated to require, each Contractor to provide proof to support its representations and warranties and to update those materials at least annually to maintain an account on the Site. ZipLawn does not guarantee or warrant the information any Contractor submits.
ZipLawn is committed to resolving disputes arising out of or relating to the completion and quality of the Services. You agree to resolve all disputes according to the timelines and procedures set forth herein. You further agree that before taking any legal action against ZipLawn or a Contractor, you must have first exhausted all of your remedies available to you under the terms of this Contract.
Any claim (e.g. damage or loss to real or personal property) which arises out of or is related to your Service or use of the Site must be reported to ZipLawn within 30 days of occurrence by calling 1-817-928-5296 or emailing legal@ZipLawn.com. Failure to report the claim within 30 days of occurrence will result in denial. If the claim is related to the performance of a Service, you agree to allow the Contractor who performed the Service, or any other ZipLawn designee, an opportunity to cure or repair any damage before pursuing other alternatives. We reserve the right to deny any claim for any reason whatsoever. We disclaim all responsibility for Services or Services that were not directly ordered and paid for through our Site.
All disputes between you and ZipLawn will initially be addressed by a ZipLawn customer service representative. If the representative is unable to resolve the dispute within five (5) business day(s) (or any other agreed upon timeframe), the dispute will be referred to the ZipLawn customer service manager. The manager may, if both parties agree, meet to resolve the dispute, but if they are unable to resolve the dispute then (regardless of whether a meeting occurs) ten (10) business days after referral (or such other period as the parties may agree), the parties may pursue other remedies consistent with these Conditions of Use.
Arbitration Agreement And Jury Trial Waiver, Class Action Waiver, And Forum Selection Clause
Binding Arbitration: Should any dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action (or part thereof) (collectively "dispute(s)") related in any way to these Conditions of Use, the Site, the Services, a Contractor, damages resulting from a Contractor, or the validity of these Conditions of Use remain between the parties after completion of the process described above, such dispute will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration in Texas under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively "Rules and Procedures"), provided that to the extent any such rule conflicts with the provisions of this Section, this Section shall control.
By agreeing to these Conditions of Use, you are GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this agreement. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and ZipLawn must abide by the following rules: (a) for any claim that could otherwise be brought in small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions and, if the arbitrator deems it appropriate, a telephonic hearing; (b) if the claim exceeds what can be recovered in a small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions or a telephonic hearing, unless the arbitrator deems a face-to-face hearing is appropriate, in which case one should be held at a location agreed to by you and ZipLawn, and if the parties cannot agree on a location for the hearing, the arbitrator will determine a location for the proceedings which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances; (c) the arbitrator's ruling is binding and not merely advisory; (d) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR ZIPLAWN MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES' INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (e) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, (f) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, ZipLawn will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (g) ZipLawn also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (h) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (i) a decision by the arbitrator (including any finding of fact and/or conclusion of law) against either you or ZipLawn shall be confidential unless otherwise required to be disclosed by law or by any administrative body and may not be collaterally used against either of them in existing or subsequent litigation or arbitration involving any other person/ZipLawn customer; and (j) each side pays its own attorneys' fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees' and litigation expenses.
Claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party's patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Hood County, Texas. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in Hood County, Texas in order to maintain the status quo pending the arbitrator's ruling, and hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Hood County, Texas for such purpose. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate.
With the exception of subparts (d) and (e) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (d) or (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor ZipLawn shall be entitled to arbitration. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, or in the event AAA refuses to arbitrate the dispute, all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action between ZipLawn and you shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Hood County, Texas.
For more information on AAA, its Rules and Procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org
THE PARTIES HAVE KNOWINGLY CHOSEN ARBITRATION AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO PROCEEDINGS IN COURT AND THEY SPECIFICALLY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO PROCEED BY ANY MEANS BEFORE A COURT OTHERWISE HAVING JURISDICTION OF ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THEM, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OR AS PROVIDED ABOVE.
You acknowledge that ZipLawn may be irreparably damaged if these Conditions of Use are not specifically enforced, and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of these Conditions of Use by you, ZipLawn shall be entitled, in addition to all rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post any bond or other security, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of these Conditions of Use.
Returned Payments, Chargebacks: Customer acknowledges that it is a violation of this Dispute Resolution Policy if any payment is returned unpaid, charged back, or otherwise disputed with the customer's financial institution and customer agrees to reimburse ZipLawn a minimum of $100 (one-hundred dollars) per instance up to the maximum allowed by law, in addition to the amount of the payment that was returned, along with any fees and costs assessed to ZipLawn by its financial institution; in addition to all other rights afforded by this Agreement.
You hereby release ZipLawn, Inc. (and our officers, directors, agents, investors, subsidiaries, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, including without limitation, damage to person or property, arising out of or in any way connected with the physical performance of the Services to complete a Service. You also agree that you will not commence any action, lawsuit, or other proceeding against ZipLawn (or any of its principals, officers, or employees) for disputes, claims, or actions arising out of or relating to physical performance of the Services rendered by a Contractor to complete a Service requested through the Site, or damages to any person or property resulting from a Contractor.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
We are not responsible for damage to items within the service area. It is your responsibility to remove any items from the service area prior to each service that you do not want damaged or destroyed, including but not limited to pots, planters, garden decor, and lighting fixtures.
We are not responsible for damage to sprinkler systems. Sprinkler heads and equipment should be installed level to the soil and, therefore, should never make contact with the cutting blades. Sprinkler heads or equipment that are installed above the soil or stuck in an extended or open position will likely be damaged or destroyed.
Your use of the Site is subject to all applicable laws and regulations, and you are solely responsible to assure that your use of the Site is in compliance therewith. Your use of the Site is at your sole risk and is provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Site without the express written permission of ZipLawn. The Site and Services may not be used in connection with promoting anything, which in ZipLawn's sole discretion is, harmful, hateful, obscene, or unlawful.

Without limitation, you may not upload, share, post, or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any content, including text, communications, software, images, sounds, data, or other information (collectively "User Content"), that:
We neither endorse nor assume any liability for any User Content. However, we and our agents have the right in our sole discretion to remove any User Content that, in our judgment, does not comply with these Conditions of Use or any other rules of user conduct for the Site or Services, or is otherwise harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. We are not responsible for any failure or delay in removing such content. You hereby consent to such removal and waive any claim against us arising out of such removal of User Content.
The Site may provide links to certain Internet sites (the "Additional Sites") sponsored and maintained by third parties. ZipLawn is providing such links solely as a convenience to you. Accordingly, ZipLawn makes no representations concerning the content of the Additional Sites. The fact that ZipLawn has provided a link to the Additional Sites does not constitute an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, or affiliation by ZipLawn with respect to the Additional Sites, their owners or providers. ZipLawn has not tested any information, software, or products found on any of the Additional Sites and therefore does not make any representations with respect thereto, including any representations regarding the content or sponsors of the Additional Sites, or the suitability or appropriateness of the products or transactions described therein. ZipLawn will not be liable for any loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of the availability of the Additional Sites.
