Responsible Use of Products
Several independent research studies have shown that content similar to that shared in Mood Candy’s app can help users reduce stress and enhance mental well-being. However, Mood Candy is not a registered medical services provider or a medical device company. As such, our Products are not meant to substitute the use of a licensed medical practitioner. Users should consult a licensed medical practitioner such as a physician if they are seeking diagnosis or treatment of any physical or mental health condition. Users are responsible for ensuring they use Mood Candy products in a safe environment, which doesn’t put them or anyone around them in any sort of danger.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not certified any Mood Candy Products. If Users experience any negative effects because of Mood Candy’s Products, they should stop using them immediately and consult a medical practitioner to seek therapy, diagnosis, or medication.
Eligibility and Requirements
Mood Candy Users need to be at least 18 years old to use our Products. In case a User is less than 18 years old, they require explicit permission from a parent or legal guardian allowing them to use Mood Candy. In this case, the parent or legal guardian is subject to Mood Candy’s Terms and Conditions.
In order to purchase any Mood Candy Product a User needs to be at least 18 years old. The User also needs to be able to form a signing contract and should not be prohibited by law from using Mood Candy’s Products.
In order to start using Mood Candy, a User will need to sign-up and create a user profile (“Profile”). A single User can have only one Profile, which they are free to access through different Devices. In order to create a Profile, Mood Candy will use information from their email account. By using Mood Candy, Users give us permission to get basic demographic and background information about them from their email account.
In order to continue using Mood Candy, Users need to ensure that their information is thorough, accurate, and updated at regular intervals. Failure to provide correct information will lead to temporary or permanent suspension of the User’s account. This will be done at the discretion of Mood Candy. If a User’s Profile information is compromised in any way, it is their responsibility to inform Mood Candy as soon as they learn about the data or information breach. The User will be held accountable for any unlawful use, by them or otherwise, of their account.
In order to use Mood Candy’s Products, a User must pay a subscription fee (“Fee” or “Fees”). This fee will allow them to use Mood Candy’s Product for a pre-determine period (“Term”). At the end of each Term, the User will automatically be charged the Fee for the subsequent Term. In order to avoid being charged, the User must cancel or modify their subscription before the start of the Term. Users can cancel their subscription by contacting XYZ@ABC.com. The amount and frequency of Fees will depend on the type and tier of Product the User signs up for and will be made clear on Mood Candy’s website.
It is the responsibility of the User to read the scope of services before signing up. If the User has any questions or concerns about the pricing or scope of services offered, they must contact Mood Candy at email@example.com before signing up.
Change in Fees or Scope of Service
Mood Candy reserves the right to change the subscription Fee at its sole discretion. In case our Fee changes, Mood Candy will inform Users about all relevant specifics including the amount and timing of the change. These changes will be applicable to future payments. If a User is not willing to bear the change in Fees, they should cancel their subscription immediately or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This includes credit card information including, but not limited to, full name, credit card number, credit card type, credit card expiration date, and credit card CVV number. Mood Candy reserves the right to temporarily or permanently ban a User if any of their financial information is found to be incorrect or fraudulent. If required, Mood Candy may conduct additional background and identity verification checks by asking for more information from the User. By providing any personal or financial information, a User allows Mood Candy to use the information to process their Fee. Mood Candy might share the information with third party application hosting platforms such as Apple or Google (“Application Hosts”). The User also agrees to pay any additional taxes that are levied by the Application Hosts.
Fees paid by Users to Mood Candy are non-refundable. A User is also prohibited from transferring these Fees to another User’s account. A confirmation of purchase will be sent to users once the Fee has been successfully processed.

Mood Candy or its affiliates that have been involved in developing its Products will not be responsible for any damages resulting from the use of its Products. Such damages can include loss of data, financial losses, or negative impacts on health and wellbeing.

Under no circumstances will the scope of liability be higher than the subscription fees you pay Mood Candy.
The Terms listed in this document will be governed by the laws of the state of Minnesota. The only exemption to this condition is when U.S. federal law preempts Minnesota state law.
By agreeing to these Terms, Users agree that any dispute arising between them and Mood Candy will be resolved informally or through a small claims court. However, if a matter cannot be resolved through these means, it will be resolved through binding arbitration. The only exception to this will be when Mood Candy or the User is seeking injunctive or other equitable relief in a court to resolve a dispute involving copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, logos, or intellectual property rights.
Notice of Arbitration and Opt-Out Clause
By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, you agree that you will not initiate or participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration against Mood Candy. Any controversy, disagreement, or dispute that arises between you and any representative of Mood Candy will be resolved through individual arbitration and shall be binding and final.
You have the option to opt-out of this clause by providing Mood Candy a written notice within the first thirty (30) days of using any of our Products. In order to exercise this right, you need to send an email to email@example.com stating your desire to do so. If you do not send an email within the first thirty (30) days of using our product, you explicitly agree that you do not have the right to trial by jury or the ability to act as a plaintiff or member of a class action lawsuit against Mood Candy.
Rules of Arbitration
The arbitration will be governed by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). AAA will arbitrate in accordance with Consumer Arbitration Rules and Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA rules”). For more information about these rules, please visit the AAA website (www.adr.com) or call AAA at 1-800-778-7879. A neutral arbitrator will arbitrate the matter, which will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
Mechanics of Arbitration
The AAA’s rules will govern the mechanics of the arbitration process. A written notice must be provided to initiate it. The arbitration will solely focus on the matter being disputed and cannot be combined with anything else. It will be performed by a licensed practitioner who is a part of AAA’s list of approved arbitrators. The arbitrator will have the authority to arbitrate a part of or the entire dispute. Both parties involved in the dispute need to finalize who the arbitrator will be within seven days of delivery of the Demand of Arbitration (which needs to be submitted by the party initiating arbitration as per AAA guidelines). Failure to do will result in AAA appointing an arbitrator. The decision made the arbitrator will be final and binding. The arbitrator will provide a written explanation of the decision, which will include details of the arbitration award.
Location of Arbitration
If the arbitration claim is $10,000 or less, the proceeding will take place solely based on documents provided by both parties. Unless the arbitrator decides otherwise, neither party will be required to appear for an in-person meeting or telephonic hearing. If an in-person hearing is requested by the arbitrator, he or she will decide a place for the hearing that is convenient to all parties involved. If the claim is great than $10,000 the arbitrator will decide the most convenient path forward, which could include electronic exchange of information, a telephonic hearing, or an in-person hearing. The decision around the most appropriate medium of information exchange shall always be governed by AAA rules and guidelines.
The AAA rules define what your portion of the AAA administrative fee and arbitration fee will be. The remaining amount will be paid by Mood Candy. However, if the arbitrator finds your claims to be frivolous (as measured in the standards set forth in the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), AAA rules will determine the fees that you need to pay.
Mood Candy reserves the right to transfer these Terms at any time to the extent it does not affect your rights under it. The User, however, does not have to transfer these terms at any point. The Terms listed in this document define the scope of the relationship between the User and Mood Candy. As such, they supersede any other agreement between the User and Mood Candy. Any exception, including waiver of these Terms needs to be provided by a legally authorized officer or representative of Mood Candy.
