Terms of Service


nothing compares to word of mouth.


Revised: October 13, 2016

These Terms of Service (“TOS”) set forth the terms and conditions that apply to Your access and use of the coveymom.com (the “Site”) and mobile application (the “Covey App”) as owned and operated by Covey, LLC (“Covey”). The Covey Site and the Covey App are collectively referred to as the “Covey Platform”, and, together with the “Subscription Services”, are the “Service” or “Services.” As used in these TOS, the term Covey Site includes all coveymom.com websites, pages that are associated or within each website and all devices, applications or services that Covey operates or offers that link to these TOS.

Description of the Service

The Service lets You interact with other users via a social network, connecting local parents with each other, Subscribers, and other third party institutions offering services and products to the users through their own independent applications and websites. The Services provide a platform that allows You, as a Subscriber, to manage day-to-day and event interactions between You and other Covey users, and that allow You to post Your products and services on the platforms. The Services may also present You information relating to third party products or services. The types of product and service postings are known as “Covey Deals”. Covey, its Subscribers and users may also provide You general tips, recommendations and educational material. Covey may alter, suspend, or discontinue the Services in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason, without notice.

In connection with Covey Deals, the Services will provide links to other web sites belonging to Covey Subscribers and other third parties. Covey does not endorse, warrant or guarantee the products or services available through the Covey Deals (or any other third-party products or services advertised on or linked from our site), whether or not sponsored, and Covey is not an agent or broker or otherwise responsible for the activities or policies of those web sites. Covey does not guarantee that any offers by any particular advertiser or other third party on the Sites are actually the terms that may be offered to You if You pursue the offer or that they are the best offers available in the market.

Access to the Service

Covey. is offering the Service solely for use by the person or entity in whose name an account is registered through the Site (the “Subscriber” or “You”) and not for the use or benefit of any third party. Covey may change, suspend or discontinue the Service at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or content. Covey may also impose limits on certain features of the Service or restrict Subscriber’s access to parts or all of the Service without notice or liability. Covey reserves the right, at its discretion, to modify this Agreement at any time by posting a notice on the Site, or by sending Subscriber a notice via e-mail, and You consent to receipt of such notice. Subscriber shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Use of the Service by Subscriber following such notification constitutes Subscriber’s acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to this Agreement. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at: http://www.coveymom.com/terms.

Subscriber certifies to Covey that if Subscriber is an individual (i.e., not an entity) Subscriber is at least 18 years of age. Subscriber also certifies that it is legally permitted to use the Service, and takes full responsibility for the selection and use of the Service. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to use the Service is revoked in such jurisdictions. Covey makes no claim that the Service may be lawfully used or that Subscriber Content (as defined hereafter) may be uploaded or downloaded outside of the United States. Access to Content may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If You use the Service from outside the United States, You do so at Your own risk and You are responsible for compliance with the laws of Your jurisdiction. Subscriber shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment or ancillary services needed to connect to and use the Service, including, without limitation, modems, hardware, software, and long distance or local telephone service. Subscriber shall be responsible for ensuring that such equipment or ancillary services are compatible with the Service.

Your access and use of Services may be interrupted from time to time for any of several reasons, including, without limitation, the malfunction of equipment, periodic updating, maintenance or repair of the Services or other actions that Covey, in its sole discretion, may elect to take. In no event will Covey be liable to any party for any loss, cost, or damage that results from any scheduled or unscheduled downtime.

Your sole and exclusive remedy for any failure or non-performance of the Services, including any associated software or other materials supplied in connection with such services, shall be for Covey to use commercially reasonable efforts to effectuate an adjustment or repair of the applicable service.

General Terms

You are responsible for all Subscriber Content (as defined hereafter) posted and activity that occurs through or under Your account (even when Subscriber Content is posted by others).

Subscriber may not post or transmit, or cause to be posted or transmitted, any communication or solicitation designed or intended to obtain password, account, or private information from any other user. Subscriber shall not share his or her password with any other person or entity; violation of this provision will be a material breach of this Agreement and may result in immediate cancellation of the Subscriber’s account.

Failure to do so shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of Subscriber’s account.

IN SUCH STATES LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OF THIS PROVISION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Limitations on Covey’s Liability

You expressly understand and agree that Covey, LLC and its directors, officers, employees, agents and members shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if Covey has been advised of the possibility of such damages), whether sounding in contract, tort, strict liability, warranty or other legal or equitable theory, resulting from: (i) the use or the inability to use the Service; (ii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through or from the Service; (iii) unauthorized access to or alteration of Your transmissions or data; (iv) statements or conduct of any third party on the Service; (v) for any amounts that exceed the fees paid by You to Covey LLC under this Agreement during the six (6) month period prior to the occurrence giving rise to Your claim or cause of action against COVEY; (vi) or any other matter arising out of or relating to the Service or Your use thereof (including but not limited to security breaches relating to data stored in connection with the Service). Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to Subscriber. The limitations specified in this Section will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement and apply even if any limited remedy specified in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

Your Indemnification of Covey

You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Covey and its officers, directors, shareholders, and employees, from and against all claims, suits, proceedings, losses, liabilities, and expenses, whether in tort, contract, or otherwise, that arise out of or relate, including but not limited to attorney’s fees, in whole or in part arising out of or attributable to any breach of these TOS or any activity by You in relation to the Sites or Your use of the Services.

All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and You shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes on the income of Covey.

Termination of Service

Covey may at any time, terminate its legal agreement with You and access to the Services:

  1. if You have breached any provision of the Agreement (or have acted in a manner which clearly shows that You do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Agreement); b. if Covey in its sole discretion believes it is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Service to You is, or becomes, unlawful); or d. immediately upon five (5) days’ notice, to the e-mail address provided by You in this Agreement.

Miscellaneous

This Agreement (including the Privacy Policy), as modified from time to time, constitutes the entire agreement between You and Covey with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding the subject matter hereof. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Covey shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Covey’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
