13.1 Your IP Address is used by the Software to help prevent fraudulent access to your account. It is only collected and stored in our Database when a new account is created and when any account change is made.
13.2 By using the Software, you are consenting to the collection of your IP Address for these purposes. Any attempt to mask your IP Address may result in the deactivation of your account or, in the case of new accounts, prevent your account from being activated.
14.2 If, at any time, you wish to remove any and all cookies generated by the Software, simply click the Logout button in the software. This action deletes all cookies on your device that were generated by the Software.
15.1 You agree to use the Software only for the intended purpose of the Software.
15.2 The use of any automated process or bot is strictly prohibited.
15.3 Users agree not to share any data within the Software with any persons who, themselves, do not have access.
16.1 Any person may create a Client account for their self.
16.2 Any person may, with permission from the Client, create a Client account for a person under the age of 18 for which they are a parent or guardian.
16.3 Any Staff may create a Basic Client account for any user when given express consent to do so. Typically, this is done when a Client wishes to book an appointment at a Clinic in person or over the phone and the Client does not have a registered account. In this case, the Staff member will use the Software to create a Basic Client account by gathering basic client information. Once the account is created, a notification will be sent to the client to complete the Full Client account creation process before their booked appointment, or an option, where available, to fill out the intake form manually or verbally and give permission to the Clinic Staff to complete the account creation on their behalf. In this case, the client is still required to agree to the terms of service and provide a signature to verify that the information entered is accurate.
16.4 Failure to successfully complete the account creation process may result in your initial appointment being canceled.
17.1 By adding an optional Secondary User to your account, you give that user permission to book appointments on your behalf.
17.2 In the case of Clients under the age of 18, the parent/guardian who signs for the account is automatically assigned as the Secondary User.
17.3 The Secondary User does not have the ability to modify, deactivate, or in any way, alter the Client account.
18.1 You agree that you have all rights and privileges to any images uploaded by you to the Software and that you have not, in any way, infringed on the rights of others by publishing the image, that the image uploaded is for the express intent of being used as your Profile Picture, that the image does not contain any nudity, offensive language or symbolism deemed to make the image unsuitable for public display, the image is only of the Client and no other persons, and is an accurate representation of your current physical appearance.
18.2 All uploaded images are screened by Software Admin. Any images that appear to fail to meet the above requirements will be removed.
18.3 If an image passes the screening process but is later deemed inappropriate, the image will be removed and the Client account will be Flagged.
19.1 By using the Software, you agree that all information provided either during the Account Creation process, Account Update process, information provided in any other form whether digital, printed, or verbally discussed, is accurate to the best of your knowledge.
19.2 You accept that any information provided that is found to be inaccurate, false, or fraudulent, may be used against you in legal proceedings, may result in your account being Flagged and Fined, or may result in the suspension or deactivation of your account.
20.1 All changes made to existing accounts are recorded with the changes stored for up to one year. This is to ensure that, should a Client account become compromised and altered, we have sufficient records to restore the account to its original state.
20.2 Some account changes may require a temporary hold on either the account or the field modified. CCS assumes no liability for any inconvenience this process causes. The Client assumes full liability for any changes to their account and any holds pursuant from them.
21.1 By agreeing to the terms herein, you allow CCS to gather and store your personal data indefinitely.
21.2 Since all accounts, whether Client, Therapist, or Clinic, contribute content to the Software in an interconnected way and are used to create content for professional documentations that are required to be maintained, we do not allow accounts to be completely removed.
21.3 If, you wish to discontinue service with all Clinics and Therapists using the Software, your account may be deactivated. Deactivation removes your account from all lists and hides your information from all users with the exception of where past services were rendered. This prevents Clinics and Staff from being able to contact you via any of your contact information, prevents you from being able to book or be booked for any services offered by any Clinic or Staff and cancel any current appointments you may have already booked. Deactivating your account will NOT remove any flags from your account, allow you to or give you permission to create a new account, or allow you to make any modifications to your account.
21.4 In the case of Client death, no action is required as all accounts automatically become deactivated after one year of inactivity. If, however, the family or rightful heir of the deceased wishes to deactivate the account immediately, simply contact CCS directly, providing a copy of the death certificate, and the account will be deactivated immediately. This will ensure that any pre-booked appointments will also be canceled without the account incurring charges.
22.1 By booking an appointment, you agree to pay to the Clinic the listed price for any product or service you book plus any and all applicable taxes, minus any and all applicable discounts. You further agree to arrive on or before the scheduled time of the appointment with any and all required forms completed beforehand, or arrive with enough notice to complete in person, any and all required forms before receiving your scheduled treatment.
22.2 Unless otherwise stated, the length of any given service or treatment will be agreed upon before hand, usually at the time of booking, and will include time for the service or treatment, time before the service or treatment for assessment including time for the Therapist to review the Client forms, make any physical or visual assessment of the Client's condition, and review any subjective details or Client expectations, time before and after the session for the Client to change if a wardrobe change is required for the service or treatment, and lastly, time after the session for post care instructions and client out-take.
22.3 The amount of time dedicated to the direct treatment/service versus time dedicated to all other requirements is determined by the Therapist and may or may not be the same between different Therapists, Clinics, or even by the same therapist. The Therapist is responsible to communicating the division of time to the Client and accepts full responsibility and liability for time usage.
22.4 If, for whatever reason, a Client is late for an appointment, including being early or on time but requiring to complete forms and, in the process of doing so, runs over the start time of the appointment, the Client assumes full responsibility for the loss of time and will, unless otherwise stated, at the Therapist's discretion, compensate the Therapist by either paying additional funds to extend the session if the Client still wishes to receive the full treatment and time permits, or, receive a reduced treatment. For example, if a client is 10 minutes late for a 60-minute appointment, the client can either pay for the 60-minute appointment at full-price and receive only a 50-minute treatment, or, if possible, extend the session to be a 70-minute session (or whichever increments are available), pay for the 70 minutes, and receive the intended 60 minutes.
22.5 If a Client is going to be late, notification to the Clinic or Therapist is required. If no notification is provided by the Client, an additional Late Fee may be applied. If no notification is provided and the Client is 15 minutes late or more, the appointment is considered a No Show
22.6 If, for whatever reason, a Therapist is late for an appointment, unless otherwise stated, the session will push forward to when the Therapist is available and will remain for the same amount of time, regardless of other appointments scheduled for the Therapist, unless the Client is willing to shorten the session at a predetermined reduced-rate, or the Client may cancel or reschedule the appointment without repercussion.
23.1 Cancellation Policies may vary drastically from Clinic to Clinic, however, unless otherwise stated, it is the policy of CCS and its represented Clinics that notice must be given prior to canceling an appointment.
23.2 A Cancellation Fee may be applied to a Client's account for canceling an appointment as outlined in the Clinic's Cancellation Policy and may be any amount up to and including the full cost of the booked service or treatment.
23.3 If the appointment is canceled by the Clinic or Therapist with more than 24-hours notice, no compensation will be made to the Client. If the appointment is canceled by the Clinic or Therapist with less than 24-hours notice, the Client may be due compensation dependent on the specific policies of the individual Clinic.
23.4 If the appointment is canceled by the Client with more than 48-hours notice, no penalty shall be applied to the Client.
23.5 If the appointment is canceled by the Client with a minimum of 24-hours notice, unless otherwise stated, no penalty shall be applied to the Client.
23.6 If the appointment is canceled by the Client with between 12 and 24-hours notice, unless the appointment was booked within that time period, a cancellation fee will likely apply, subject to the Clinic's Cancellation Policy.
23.7 If the appointment is canceled by the Client with less than 12-hours notice, regardless of when the appointment was created, a standard Cancellation Fee will apply.
23.8 If the Client cancels an appointment and the time-slot of said appointment becomes booked by another Client, unless otherwise stated, the Cancellation Fee will be waved.
23.9 If the Client is unable to make an appointment and wishes to cancel, if the Client is able to find a different Client to assume the appointment, the Appointment Change will wave any Cancellation Fee required by the Client. If the Clinic or Therapist refuses service to the second Client, as long as the second Client is NOT Blacklisted, and therefore can book the appointment, the first Client is still free from liability for the initial booking and the second Client will show as a canceled appointment, where the cancellation was made by the Clinic or Therapist.
23.10 Any and all cancellation fees accumulated by a Client are the responsibility of the Client and failure to pay them may result in your account being Flagged and Suspended.
23.11 Clients assume all responsibility for the appointments they book. In the case where the appointment was booked by a Secondary User, the liability for the booking and with it, any Fees generated by a cancellation are applied to the account of the Client who booked the appointment, not necessarily the Client for whom the appointment was booked.
23.12 No exceptions are made in regards to the Cancellation Fees when pertaining to reasons for canceling. The Client who booked the appointment is fully responsible and liable for all associated costs.
23.13 The Therapist for which a canceled appointment was made has the sole authority to waive a Cancellation Fee at their discretion.
23.14 In the case where a Cancellation Fee is waived, at the discretion of either the Clinic and/or Therapist, a Cancellation Flag may still be placed onto the Client's account. A Flag to which no fee is attached will not warrant an account Suspension.
23.15 Cancellation Fees cannot be billed to insurance companies and must be paid fully by the Client.
24.1 A No-Show, herein referred to as an NS, is when a Client fails to receive a service or treatment by not arriving at the Clinic and provides no notice of their intent to miss the appointment. This differs from a Cancellation as a Cancellation is where notice is provided.
24.2 Unless otherwise noted, if a Client is 15 minutes late for an appointment, without notifying Staff of the Clinic, that appointment is automatically canceled and an NS Fee is applied to the Client's account.
24.3 Unless otherwise noted, a NS Fee is, at minimum, equal to the full amount of the service or treatment booked.
24.4 In the situation where a Client arrives for a service or treatment and is more than 15-minutes late and requests to still receive service, at the Therapist's discretion, the Client may be booked in their previous spot at a reduced time, or full time if requested and time permits. For example if a Client books a 60-minute treatment and arrives 20-minutes late, if no one else has booked in for that freshly available time-slot, the original Client, if the Therapist chooses, may book the Client in for up to 40-minutes, or extend it if they have time available to extend it.
24.5 Regardless of whether or not a Client, whose appointment was canceled due to a NS, books back into their previous time-slot, the NS Fee still applies.
24.6 As with Cancellation Fees, the liability lies upon the Client who booked the appointment, not the Client for whom the appointment was booked.
24.7 It is at the sole discretion of the Therapist to waive a NS Fee
24.8 In the case where an NS Fee is waived, at the discretion of either the Clinic and/or Therapist, a NS Flag may still be placed onto the Client's account. A Flag to which no fee is attached will not warrant an account Suspension.
24.9 NS Fees cannot be billed to insurance companies and must be paid fully by the Client.
25.1 Abuse, whether verbal, physical, or sexual, is absolutely not tolerated by CCS, it's registered Clinics, Therapists, or Clients.
25.2 In cases where abuse has been reported, the offenders account will be immediately Flagged.
25.3 In cases where the abused deems necessary, criminal charges may be laid against the abuser in accordance with local law.
25.4 In cases of Abuse, a Fine delegated by CCS may be applied to the abuser's account in association with a Flag. This Fine will be set by CCS Administration and will vary depending on the severity of the crime and with individual considerations.
25.5 Fines associated with Abuse are payable to the abused.
26.1 CCS takes Fraud extremely seriously and as such will assign Flags and Fines to any Clinic, Therapist, or Client found guilty of fraudulent activity in association with the Software.

27.1 Staff of Clinics are capable of placing upon Clients Fines and/or Fees for various reasons listed throughout this document.
27.2 It is at the discretion of the issuing Clinic and Staff to issue the Fine or Fee in the form of an account Flag.
27.3 Clients have the right to dispute any charges on their account.
27.4 A CCS Administrator will act as judge in the matter of any disputed charge.
(a) In the case where CCS sides with the Clinic, the Flags and their associated Fines or Fees will remain in place until the Client has paid them. Failure to pay may result in Blacklisting.
(b) In the case where CCS sides with the Client, CCS will remove the associated Flags from the account. This process may prevent Blacklisting of the Client or remove the Client from current Blacklist status but is not a guarantee that the Client's account will be returned to Active status. The Clinic still retains the right to charge and attempt to collect any Fines or Fees it sets.
27.5 CCS does not enforce the collection of any Fines or Fees. This is left strictly to the Clinic and/or local law enforcement.
27.6 CCS will only impose Fines on accounts in matters concerning Fraud or Abuse. CCS reserves the right to choose the value of the fine based, at their sole discretion, upon the severity of the activity for which the account is being Fined for. These Fines may be applied to any account, Whether Client or Clinic.
27.7 Fines imposed by CCS are not enforceable by law and are paid by the account owner voluntarily.
27.8 You understand that you have the right to refuse to pay any fine, but by doing so, forfeit your ability to access or use the Software and, in the case of Clients, the ability to book appointments with any and all Clinics and Therapists using the Software, and, in the case of Clinics, forfeit any funds paid to CCS for access to the Software.
27.9 Under absolutely no condition will any paid Fine or Fee be refunded.
28.1 Flags can be set on any Client, Therapist, or Clinic Account in the Software. Flags are designed to be probationary warnings when the Client, Therapist, or Clinic has behaved in such a manner as to warrant a warning to others. Such instances include but are not limited to: Outstanding Fines or Fees, being late to an appointment, no-showing, abuse, fraud, or other illegal activity.
28.2 Once a Flag is added to an account, it can only be removed by the creator of the Flag or by CCS Administration.

29.3 Accepted forms of payment may vary from Clinic to Clinic and Clinics may, at their discretion add, remove, or replace accepted payment methods at any time.
