Effective Date: September 18, 2023
The Scooter’s Coffee Franchise System
Scooter’s Coffee, LLC is the franchisor of the Scooter’s Coffee franchise system. The Scooter’s Coffee franchise system is a retail network made up of independently owned and operated Scooter’s Coffee businesses (each a “Franchisee”). Each Franchisee is solely and independently responsible for its legal and regulatory compliance, for any issues relating to its supply of products to you, and for any employment related matters in the Franchisee.
The System may provide links to job opportunities posted by Scooter’s Coffee, LLC or Franchisees. Job opportunities posted on behalf of Franchisees are with the Franchisee alone and not with us, our parent company, or any of our affiliates. This means that the Franchisee that posted the job opportunity is alone responsible for setting the job requirements, all hiring decisions, and all other employment related matters in its business.
Use of parts of the System may require that you create an account with a username and a password. You are solely responsible for the activity on your account. To create an account, you must:
- Be thirteen years of age or older. The System is not intended for individuals under the age of 13;
- Provide accurate information;
- Create only one account; and
- Keep your log-in and password secure.
You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account and accept all risks of unauthorized access. You must promptly notify Scooter’s Coffee if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches relating to your account. You may delete your account by contacting us at [email protected]. We reserve the right to terminate an account that has been inactive for a period of three (3) years or more. You understand and agree that termination by us of your account will result in the cancellation of all offers and promotions associated with that account.
Access to the System
We reserve the right to delete, amend, or replace the System and any service or material we provide on System, in our sole discretion, without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the System is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the System or the entire System.
Violation of These Terms
You agree that Scooter’s Coffee may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice, block and/or terminate your access to the System if we determine that you have violated these Terms or the terms of any other agreements or guidelines that may be associated therewith. You also agree that monetary damages would be inadequate for such harm and you consent to our obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that we deem necessary or appropriate. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies we may have at law or in equity.
If we take legal action against you as a result of your violation of these Terms, we will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of such action, in addition to any other relief granted to us. You also agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for termination of your access to the System as a result of any violation of these Terms.
