Part 2: Purchase of Products and Services

When you purchase a product or service through our Site, Part 1 and this Part 2 apply. To the extent there are inconsistencies between this Part and Part 1, this Part controls.

19. Products and Services

The Company may offer products and services that you may purchase through our Site, including subscription services and plans (“Subscription”), like the car wash subscription plans and vouchers available through the Car Wash App, and add-on or one-time services and products. The terms and conditions applicable to the purchase of these products and services, including Subscriptions, are described on our Site at the time of purchase and they supplement these Terms of Use.

We reserve the right to change your Subscription from time to time in accordance with section 22.

20. Promotional Subscriptions

From time to time, we may offer a promotional Subscription (a “Promotional Subscription”) for a limited time period (“Promotional Period”) free of charge or at a reduced price. The Company reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Promotional Subscription, and to withdraw or to modify a Promotional Subscription at any time without prior notice and with no liability to us. Sometimes, your Subscription may begin with a Promotional Subscription. In these cases, we will require you to provide your payment details at the start of the Promotional Period and, on the first day following the end of such Promotional Period, we may automatically start to charge you for the Subscription, on a recurring monthly basis. You may cancel a Promotional Subscription through your account’s settings before the end of the Promotional Period, in accordance with the terms of the Promotional Subscription.

21. Automatic Renewal of Subscription

When you purchase a monthly Subscription, your Subscription will automatically renew for an indeterminate period, payable monthly, and you expressly acknowledge and agree that (a) the Company (or our third party payment processor) is authorized to charge you on a monthly basis for the price of your Subscription (in addition to any applicable taxes and other charges set forth and accepted during the purchase process) for as long as your Subscription continues, and (b) your Subscription shall continue until you cancel it or we suspend or terminate it pursuant to section 23. The initial monthly recurring charges for your Subscription will be set forth during the purchase process. The amount you are charged may vary depending on the preferences you select and we may modify such recurring charges from time to time, subject to section 22.

22. Modifications to a Subscription

We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to modify all or any portion of your Subscription, including the price of your Subscription, at any time after the initial monthly period, without incurring any liability or obligation whatsoever to you or any other person or entity. We will provide you notice of these changes using your email address, or any other contact information we have for you in our discretion. Where required by law, this notice will be provided at least thirty (30) days before the change comes into effect and will set out the new clause, or the modified clause and how it read formerly, and the date on which the change will come into effect. Before the change comes into effect, you may cancel the Subscription rather than accept the change. Where required by law, you may refuse the modification and rescind, or cancel the Subscription without cost, penalty, cancellation fee or cancellation indemnity, by providing us with notice to that effect no later than thirty (30) days after the modification comes into force, using the information in the notice, if the change results in increased obligations to you or a reduction of obligations on us. Your continued access to and/or use of the Subscription after the date specified in such notice constitutes your full acceptance of, and agreement to be legally bound by, these Terms of Use, as modified, or such change to your Subscription communicated to you.

23. Cancellation Policy

You may cancel your Subscription at any time prior to the order invoice date by accessing your account (for instance, the “My Page” feature on the Car Wash App) or contacting us at [insert email address]. If cancellation occurs after the invoice date, the cancellation request will be processed for the next scheduled invoice. You are responsible for all charges (including any applicable taxes and other charges) incurred with respect to any order processed prior to the cancellation of your Subscription. We may cancel your Subscription upon no less than 60 days advance written notice to you.

Gifts are subject to this Part, including the auto renewal terms in section 21 for Gifts that are Subscriptions.

25. Payment and Billing Information

By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for all charges you incur for the purchase of any Subscriptions or other products or services (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (each such purchase, an “Order”). You are responsible for, and agree to pay, all such charges. If we or our third party payment processor cannot obtain authorization for charges to your payment method or if any amounts you authorize us to charge to your payment method are reversed or charged back for any reason, we may, at our option, in addition to any other remedies: (a) cancel or suspend any undelivered portion of your Orders, (b) make second and/or subsequent attempts to charge your payment method, and/or (c) use any other lawful means to collect payment on any outstanding amounts due to us. You will remain responsible for paying all applicable charges for all Orders. You agree to provide and keep current a valid payment method. However, your failure to do so shall not constitute cancellation of any Order. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your Subscription, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information. All prices shown for products and services available through the Site and related charges are in Canadian dollars, unless indicated otherwise.
