1. The Subscription Agreement
1.1 Subscription Agreement
The Subscription Agreement is a contract made by and between Merchant and CARROT Wellness. The Subscription Agreement will govern Merchant’s access to and use of the (a) CARROT Wellness application (“CARROT pass App”), which has been made available via the electronic marketplace owned and operated by Clover (hereinafter the “Clover App Market”); and (b) the CARROT Wellness services, including all applicable technology and applications, which are designed to facilitate an online loyalty program for Merchant’s business and distribute offers, discounts and rewards to Merchant’s customers (collectively, the “Subscription Services”). The Subscription Agreement is the complete and exclusive understanding and agreement between the parties and supersedes any oral or written proposal, agreement or other communication between the parties, regarding Merchant’s access to and use of the Subscription Services.
1.2 Changes to the Subscription Agreement

In order to receive the Subscription Services, Merchant must (a) download the CARROT Wellness App from the Clover App Market; (b) agree to the terms in the Subscription Agreement; and (c) complete the registration and account signup process, when prompted on the CARROT Wellness App.
During the registration and account signup process, Merchant will create an account and select and configure the Subscription Services, via a dashboard. During this process, Merchant will be asked to include details of its loyalty program for consumers who have installed the consumer-facing CARROT Wellness application on their mobile device or smart phone (the “Customers”). Merchant will then be asked to confirm the details set forth on the subscription confirmation page (“Subscription Confirmation”). Merchant represents and warrants to CARROT Wellness that the person providing the information has all rights necessary to provide such information and create the account, all information is truthful and accurate and the accuracy of such information will be maintained. Once Merchant has established its account, Merchant agrees to continuously use the Subscription Services during the term of this Agreement.
2.3 Revising Your Loyalty Program
At any time during the term of this Agreement, Merchant can reconfigure the Subscription Services via the dashboard. Merchant may add additional locations at any time via the dashboard and, after entering the additional location(s) to the dashboard, Merchant will again be asked to accept the then-current version of this Agreement when that option is made available. Merchant will be charged, in accordance with Section 5, for each additional location.
The equipment that is needed for the Subscription Services is described on our Site, which is accessible via the CARROT Wellness App (see F.A.Q’s on the registration page).
