4. The Services
Youtopia offers the Services in combinations of experiences and choices, each with optional customizations to help you optimize your health with Precision Nourishment.
a. The App. Youtopia’s mobile application (the “App”) is your portal to Youtopia. The App provides you with a complete onboarding experience, access to your Account, profile creation tools, and methods to view, select, access, and modify your experience using the Services. See Section 13(b) for App Requirements.
b. Nutrients. Nutrients allows you shop a menu of consumables that are scored in comparison with your likely daily nutrient needs. When you register as a User, we will use your Account profile and survey responses to create a general Nutrient Score. You can update your Nutrient Score by answering additional questions or by opting into experiences at a Discovery Center. When you are ready to order consumables, Nutrients presents you with menus of available meals, drinks and other consumables with nutrition information listed in comparison to your Nutrient Score. Through the App, you can order meals to Eat Now or Schedule Food for delivery later. You also have the option to add your User dependents, adult household members, and friends to your meal orders.
c. Discovery Centers. Our Discovery Centers are where in-person experiences take place. At a Discovery Center, you can opt-in to participate in various wellness assessments. Youtopia requires the completion of at least the Starting Line Experience to provide you with an initial wellness assessment or test before you can opt-in to additional Discovery Center experiences. Once completed, all subsequent experiences are fully optional. Discovery Centers may offer experiences like completing a physical assessment, submitting a biological sample for lab screenings, or updating your health screenings to enhance the precision of your Nutrient Score or your use of the Discovery Center. In some cases, Discovery Centers may offer you referrals to third-party service providers to assist you in additional wellness matters.
You alone are responsible for your choices to complete Discovery Center experiences and how you use the outcomes from those experiences to seek follow-up support or medical care as you determine necessary. Youtopia encourages all Users to confer with their healthcare provider about the outcomes of all Discovery Center experiences and before making changes to diet, exercise, or health routines.
d. MaxWellness. Youtopia provides Users who complete certain prerequisite experiences with the option to access healthcare experiences through the Services as patients of the MaxWell Clinic of Colorado and the MaxWell Clinic of Tennessee, as applicable (in each case, the “MaxWell Clinic”), subject to the patient’s agreement to the MaxWell Clinic’s Consent to Treat Agreement. Users can use the App to book Telemedical or Consultation appointments with the MaxWell Clinic or Telewellness visits with Youtopia or MaxWell Clinic personnel as appropriate. You agree that your status as a patient and your receipt of healthcare experiences from the MaxWell Clinic is subject to your Consent to Treat is separate from your relationship with Youtopia.
e. For You. For You is your genius best friend that helps you optimize your life. The For You feature leverages artificial intelligence to deliver personalized recommendations, experiences, and other content. All content made available via For You is for informational purposes only.
f. Longevity. The Longevity feature is a resource center for you to learn wellness and life skills that promote longevity. Resources provided through Longevity are for informational purposes only.

Discovery Centers are Youtopia’s in-person experience locations offering access to wellness experiences and an in-person location for MaxWell Clinic patients to receive healthcare experiences in a licensed medical clinic. You alone are responsible for your choices to complete Discovery Center experiences and how you use the outcomes from those experiences to seek support or medical care as you determine necessary. If you choose to provide medical samples for lab screenings at a Discovery Center, and your results indicate that you are experiencing a medical crisis, Youtopia has protocols in place to notify you so you can seek medical attention.

As a User, you must maintain a valid payment method on file with us, which is securely stored and processed via a PCI-DSS payment processor. You hereby authorize Youtopia to charge your payment method on file with us for the fees due hereunder, along with any sales and use taxes.

If you cancel your selected Services or otherwise terminate your agreement with us, we will retain any fees you paid to us under these Terms, unless otherwise set forth herein. If we terminate your Services access and determine you are owed a refund, we will refund a prorated amount based on your Fees at the time of termination and the number of days remaining in the billing cycle by issuing a credit to your payment method.

IN NO EVENT WILL WE, OUR AFFILIATES, OR OUR LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, OR MEMBERS BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICES OR ANY CONTENTS OR FEATURES THEREOF, INCLUDING ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.

19. Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT CONTAINS A CLASS ACTION WAIVER, REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS, AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US. You agree that any dispute between you and Youtopia arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or your use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
a. Informal Dispute Resolution. We want to address your concerns without the necessity of a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Youtopia, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Youtopia will contact you by email as part of a good faith effort to resolve the Dispute informally. If a Dispute is not resolved within 30 days after submission, you or Youtopia may bring a formal proceeding.
b. Arbitration Agreement. You and Youtopia each agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, or any other location we agree to. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Youtopia may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Jefferson County, Colorado or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of our Services, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described above.
c. Class Action Waiver. You may only resolve Disputes with Youtopia on an individual basis and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed under these Terms.
d. Intellectual Property Disputes; Liquidated Damages. Notwithstanding the Parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court that only asserts claims for patent infringement or invalidity, copyright infringement, moral rights violations, trademark infringement, and/or trade secret misappropriation, but not, for clarity, claims related to the license granted to you for the Services under these Terms. Either Party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction. You hereby agree that any breach by you of the covenants or agreements contained in Section 12 shall cause irreparable injury to Youtopia and its affiliates for which there is, and shall be, no adequate remedy at law. Youtopia shall be entitled, as liquidated damages from you, to liquidated damages in the amount of ten thousand dollars $10,000 per breach, in addition to (and without limiting) all other remedies, including, without limitation, injunction remedies.
e. Limitation on Claims. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
f. Attorneys Fees. In the event of any dispute between the Parties concerning the terms and provisions of these Terms, we shall be entitled to collect from the other Party all costs incurred in such dispute, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, if we are the prevailing party.
a. Relationship of Parties. The parties’ relationship, as established by these Terms, is solely that of independent contractors. These Terms do not create any partnership, joint venture, or similar business relationship between the parties. Neither party is a legal representative of the other party, and neither party can direct and control the day-to-day activities of the other, or assume or create any obligation, representation, warranty, or guarantee, express or implied, on behalf of the other party for any purpose whatsoever.
b. Entire Agreement. These Terms, including and together with any related policies, guidelines, agreements, or rules that we may incorporate from time to time, constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter herein, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding such subject matter. If these Terms are inconsistent with any other written policies, terms, and agreements relating to any Service, the written guidelines, policy, terms, and agreements relating to the specific Service will govern. Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits. We may amend these Terms from time to time by updating this page as evidenced by revising the “Last Updated” date noted at the top of this posting. Once you accept these Terms, the then-current version shall apply each time you access or use the Services.
c. Governing Law. These Terms will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the local laws of the State of Colorado, without reference to its choice of law rules. To the extent that the arbitration agreement herein is not enforceable, each party hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the federal, state, and local courts in Jefferson County, Colorado for resolution of any lawsuit or court proceeding permitted under these Terms.
d. Geographic Restrictions. Youtopia is owned and operated in the United States. We make no claims that the Services or any other products or services or their content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Access to our Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Services from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
e. Waiver; Severability. Youtopia’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. Except as expressly set forth herein, the exercise by either Party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
f. Enforcement. Youtopia reserves the right (but is not required) to remove or disable your access to our Services, disable any username, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, or remove any content, User Content or Your Data at any time and without notice, and at our sole discretion, if we determine that your use of our Services is in any way objectionable or in violation of these Terms. Certain violations of these Terms, as determined by Youtopia, may result in immediate termination of your access to the Services without prior notice to you. We have the right to investigate violations of these Terms and any conduct that affects our Services, and in response may take any action we may deem appropriate. Our rights and remedies provided in these Terms are cumulative and not exclusive, and the exercise by us of any right or remedy does not preclude the exercise of any other rights or remedies that may now or subsequently be available at law, in equity, by statute, in any other agreement between you and us or otherwise.
g. Assignment. We may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time without your consent. You may not assign these Terms without our prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you shall be automatically null and void. No assignment, transfer, delegation, or subcontract shall relieve you of any of your obligations hereunder. These Terms are binding on and inures to the benefit of your and our respective permitted successors and assigns.
h. Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by us under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by email, the date of receipt on the message will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
i. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for or considered to be in breach of or default under these Terms on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by these Terms as a result of any cause or condition beyond its reasonable control, so long as that party uses all commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or remove the causes of non-performance.
Except for any termination of your selected Services under Section 9(c), these Terms shall remain in full force and effect for as long as you use the Services. To terminate these Terms of Service you must discontinue all use of the Services. Upon discontinuance of the Services, these Terms are terminated, and you lose the right to access or use any of our Services. The proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, representations made by you, limitations of liability, and general provisions shall survive any termination of these Terms.
