This Terms of Use Agreement (this “Agreement”) governs your access to and use of www.thedailycafe.com and any other site, service, social media page or application (collectively, the “Sites”), owned and/or operated by Educational Design, LLC, d.b.a. “The 2 Sisters” or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively, “The 2 Sisters”, “we” or “us”) that states that it is governed by this Agreement, including any products, content, functionality and services offered on or through the Sites (the “Services”).

By using the Sites, clicking “Join Now”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our Services, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, and agree to all of the terms, conditions, and notices contained or referenced herein.    

You represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with The 2 Sisters and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. If you are using the Site or subscribing to any Services on behalf of an organization, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind the organization to this Agreement, in which case the term “you” shall refer to both you and the organization.

If you do not agree to these requirements, do not click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access the Sites or otherwise use any of our Services.

We may revise and update this Agreement from time to time at our sole discretion.

Your continued use of the Sites or Services following the posting of revised Agreement means that you accept and agree to the changes.

If you engage with us through a social media platform this Agreement is in addition to any terms and conditions governing the relevant social media platform.  We have no liability or responsibility for the third party content, products or services available on any social media platform or the actions or inactions of any social media platform or any other user of such social media platform.

1. Membership

Certain portions of the Sites are members only.  To obtain access you may be required to register and become a member.  Membership fees may apply.

You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to the Sites or portions of it using your ID or password. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your ID or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.
