Terms of Use - Models

NEON COAT, LLC (“NEON COAT” or “we” or “us” or “our”) provides a platform for directly connecting businesses and signed models (the “Services”).
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) apply to your access and use of the Neon Coat mobile application (the “App”), our website located at https://www.neoncoat.com (the “Site”), our proprietary platform that powers the Services (the “Platform”) and other online products and services of Neon Coat (collectively, with the App and the Site, the “Neon Coat Services”).

The Neon Coat Services
Through the Neon Coat Services, models are informed of businesses or event promoters (each, an “Organizer”) seeking models to attend a venue, event, restaurant, store or other location (each, an “Event”). When an Organizer requests models for a particular Event, it will provide details (e.g., the number of models requested, the date, time and place of the Event, Eventspecific terms and conditions, etc.), any additional criteria it seeks for the models, and any incentives offered (“Offers”) for models to attend the Event. If you meet the necessary criteria, are interested, and there is available space, you can accept the Offer via the App, which will generate an electronic ticket (“E-Ticket”) via the App to be presented to the Organizer upon arrival at the Event. If you cancel or are not checked in via the App for an Event that you have agreed to attend, we may suspend your access to and use of the Neon Coat Services, in our sole discretion. It will be your responsibility to comply with all stated terms and conditions of each Offer, which may require contacting an Organizer in advance to make an appointment. We reserve the right to limit users’ access to certain Offers in our sole discretion. Should you encounter any inappropriate conduct or behavior by an Organizer, please contact us at info@neoncoat.com.

Conditions of Use
You may not use the Neon Coat Services unless (i) you are at least 18 years old; and (ii) you agree to these Terms, which may be modified at any time. If you disagree with any such modifications, your only remedy is to immediately discontinue use of the Neon Coat Services.

Acceptance
BY DOWNLOADING THE APP OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING THE NEON COAT SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS BELOW, INCLUDING YOUR AGREEMENT TO SUBMIT ANY DISPUTES TO BINDING ARBITRATION. Please read all of the terms before you use the Neon Coat Services. If a term does not make sense to you, please let us know.

Modifications
We reserve the right to change these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the Terms (and, in some cases, providing you with additional notice such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email notification). All users of Neon Coat Services should review the Terms periodically to ensure they stay informed of any updates. Changes to these Terms will be effective when posted (unless you are notified otherwise), and your continued use of Neon Coat Services after the effective date of any such revisions will signify your acceptance of those changes.

Privacy Policy
For information about how we collect, use and share information about users of the Neon Coat Services, please see our Privacy Policy at https://www.neoncoat.com/privacy-policy.

Accounts
You must create an account to use the Neon Coat Services, which may require that you link to one or more of your social media accounts (e.g., Instagram). You are responsible for all activity performed through your account, and accept all risk that someone may access your account without your permission. As such, you should keep your log-in credentials secure. By creating an account with Neon Coat, you represent and warrant to us that you are at least 18 years old and that all information that you provide in connection with your account is at all times truthful, accurate, current and complete. Neon Coat reserves the right to deny or terminate any account, at our discretion, for any reason or no reason. You promise to update the information you have provided to Neon Coat in the event of any changes to your account information.

Offers
Offers originate from Organizers and Neon Coat makes no representations or warranties in connection with Offers. Should an Organizer fail to honor its Offer, however, please report it to Neon Coat immediately.

Your attendance at Events will be monitored via various mechanisms, including geolocation information collected by the App from your mobile device and manual attendance verification. When attending an Event for which you have accepted an Offer, you must present your E-Ticket to the Event Organizer so they can ensure you are properly checked in. Please keep your mobile device powered and with you while attending an Event. If you leave an Event for any reason prior to its conclusion or fail to conduct yourself appropriately at an Event or adhere to an Organizer’s reasonable expectations or Event-specific guidelines, Offers may be reduced or withheld entirely.

Neon Coat reserves the right to limit your access to any Offers in its sole discretion.

No Agency
Neon Coat does not intend to appoint you or any other Neon Coat model as its employee or legal agent, or to form any kind of legal partnership or joint venture with you. You are not authorized to make any commitments on behalf of Neon Coat, and Neon Coat will not make commitments on your behalf, except as contemplated by the Neon Coat Services or as expressly stated in these Terms.

Right to Use the Neon Coat Services
Provided that you fully comply with these Terms, Neon Coat grants you a limited, nonexclusive, non-transferable and revocable license to access and use the Neon Coat Services for your own personal, non-commercial use. It is the responsibility of each Neon Coat model to ensure that his or her account is controlled by him or her only at all times. The terms of this license will also govern any upgrades provided by Neon Coat that replace and/or supplement the original App, unless the upgrade is accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that license will govern.

Except as expressly authorized by these Terms, you may not (a) modify, disclose, alter, translate or create derivative works of the Neon Coat Services, (b) license, sublicense, resell, distribute, lease, rent, lend, transfer, assign or otherwise dispose of the Neon Coat Services, (c) disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer any of the software components of the Neon Coat Services, (d) copy, frame or mirror any part of the Neon Coat Services, (e) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Neon Coat Services, or (f) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Neon Coat Services or its related systems or networks.

Disputes between You and an Organizer

Neon Coat makes no representations or warranties of any kind in connection with Organizers or Events.

Neon Coat does not endorse any such sites or the information, materials, products or services contained on or accessible through such sites. Neon Coat has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party websites or services. If you access a third party website from the App or the Site, you do so at your own risk, and you understand that these Terms do not apply to your use of such sites. You expressly relieve Neon Coat from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or services or third party-owned content.

Suspension or termination may include restricting access to and use of the App. All of the terms of these Terms (excluding the license grant) will survive any termination or suspension. Termination of access to the Neon Coat Services will not release either party from any obligations incurred prior to such termination, and Neon Coat may retain and continue to use for its own internal purposes any information previously provided by you.

Governing Law; Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY. THEY REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH NEON COAT, AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM NEON COAT.

These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York and the United States of America, without resort to any conflict of law provisions. In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms or the Neon Coat Services, you and Neon Coat agree to consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing your mutual interests, try to reach a solution satisfactory to both parties. If we do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, then either of us may, by notice to the other demand mediation under the mediation rules of the JAMS/Endispute (“JAMS”) in New York, New York. Both you and Neon Coat give up the right to litigate disputes and may not proceed to arbitration without first trying mediation, but you and Neon Coat are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief from the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and Neon Coat will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding.

If settlement is not reached within 60 days after service of a written demand for mediation, any unresolved controversy or claim will be resolved by arbitration in accordance with the rules of JAMS before a single arbitrator in New York, New York. The language of all proceedings and filings will be English. The arbitrator will render a written opinion including findings of fact and law and the award and/or determination of the arbitrator will be binding on the parties, and their respective administrators and assigns, and will not be subject to appeal. Judgment may be entered upon the award of the arbitrator in any court of competent jurisdiction. The expenses of the arbitration will be shared equally by the parties unless the arbitration determines that the expenses will be otherwise assessed and the prevailing party may be awarded its attorneys’ fees and expenses by the arbitrator. It is the intent of the parties that, barring extraordinary circumstances, arbitration proceedings will be concluded within 90 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit only if failure to do so would unduly prejudice the rights of the parties. Failure to adhere to this time limit will not constitute a basis for challenging the award. Consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration, pre-hearing information exchange will be limited to the reasonable production of relevant, non-privileged documents, carried out expeditiously.

For any disputes that are not handled by arbitration, you agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms will be filed only in the state and federal courts located in New York, New York and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms or the use of the Neon Coat Services.

No Circumvention
Any attempt to try to circumvent Neon Coat (e.g., by dealing with Organizers directly for the express purpose of circumventing the Neon Coat Services) is prohibited and may result in the termination of your account and/or access to the Neon Coat Services.

General
Enforcement of these Terms is solely at Neon Coat’s discretion. Failure to enforce any part of these Terms in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the same or other part of these Terms in other instances. If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unlawful, void or otherwise unenforceable (including the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations above), then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. The section headings of these Terms are for reference purposes only and will not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.

These Terms (and the other policies and terms referred to above) make up the entire agreement between you and us regarding the Neon Coat Services, and they supersede any prior agreements that may have been made.
