Terms and Conditions


EASY DENTAL TERMS


These terms replace the previous version of our terms of use as at 07 February 2020 and apply to our relationship with you, your Account and your use of Easy Dental and the Services from this date.



WELCOME TO EASY DENTAL

These are the Easy Dental Terms (Terms). In these Terms we, us and our means Easy Dental Limited, and you and your means you - our customer - who signs up to an Easy Dental account (Account) or uses Easy Dental in any way.

These Terms govern your use of Easy Dental and our relationship with you. When you create an Account you accept these Terms.

Easy Dental facilitates dental services with participating Easy Dental Providers (Easy Dental Providers) and other dental benefits on a subscription basis. Easy Dental Standard is the base subscription (Easy Dental Standard). Easy Dental Premium is an add-on to Easy Dental Standard (Easy Dental Premium). These are individually described in more detail below.

In these Terms, Services means the services provided by Easy Dental to facilitate the benefits available through Easy Dental Standard and Easy Dental Premium including the website and user interfaces, as well as all software associated with such services. Subscription means your 12 month subscription for Easy Dental Standard and if applicable includes any add-on like Easy Dental Premium and any renewals of that term.

These Terms apply while we provide the Services to you. Please note that your visits to any participating Easy Dental Providers and the dental services provided by them are subject to those Easy Dental Providers’ terms and conditions and not these Terms. Easy Dental is not responsible for the dental services provided by those Easy Dental Providers.



SERVICES


To sign up to Easy Dental Services, you must be located in New Zealand, be 18 years of age or older, have a valid and current email address, and comply with these Terms. We will endeavour to provide our Services to you with reasonable care and skill. We cannot represent or guarantee the Services will be: (a) interruption or fault free, or that any faults or errors will be able to be corrected; (b) available at any particular time or location; (c) available, or available without change, for any minimum period of time; (d) secure or private. We will always try to restore any Service outage within our control as soon as we reasonably can. Using our Services does not give you any rights to any part of our Services except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms. We do not represent or guarantee that all items forming part of our Services will be accessible via our User Portal.



EASY DENTAL STANDARD

Easy Dental Standard is a subscription service that allows you to access Easy Dental Providers for basic dental care with payment staged over the term of your Subscription. The minimum term for an Easy Dental Standard Subscription is 12 months. When you sign-up to an Easy Dental Standard Subscription you commit to a 12 month term. During the 12 month term, the Easy Dental Standard Subscription entitles you to the following benefits:



Easy Dental Standard Benefits only become available to you after the first 90 days of the start date of your Easy Dental Standard Subscription.

Any unused Easy Dental Standard Benefits not used during the 12 month period will not roll over past the Subscription term. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that you have made full use of the Easy Dental Standard Benefits before the expiry of the 12 month term.

Your Easy Dental Standard Subscription will automatically renew for an additional 12 months effective at the 12 month anniversary date of your current Subscription. If you do not want to commit to an additional 12 month Easy Dental Standard Subscription then it is important that you let us know in writing before your current Subscription expires but in any event no later than 14 days after such expiry date.

You may end your Easy Dental Standard Subscription at any time through the Easy Dental website. If you end your Subscription in this way, you are cancelling the automatic renewal effective at the 12 month anniversary date of the then current 12 month term. You will remain responsible for your current Subscription term. Easy Dental will not provide any refunds for Subscriptions that are ended early for any reason, regardless of whether you have used any of the Easy Dental Standard Benefits.

You will also become liable for the immediate payment of the outstanding balance of any charges for your current Subscription term which would otherwise have been payable by you by regular payments had you not ended your Subscription. 

When you end your Subscription then, provided you are not in breach of these Terms (e.g. you have satisfied your payment obligations), your Account will remain active so you can access your remaining entitlements for the balance of your 12 month Subscription period. Once your 12 month Subscription period expires the Easy Dental Standard Benefits will cease to be available to you.



EASY DENTAL PREMIUM

Easy Dental Premium is an add-on to Easy Dental Standard. With Easy Dental Premium, if your employer is a participating employer, your employer can agree to make contributions to your Account to be applied towards your costs of any future dental treatment that is not already included in the Easy Dental Standard Benefits (Employer Contributions). Employer Contributions under the Easy Dental Premium: (a) can only be used if you have a current Easy Dental Standard Subscription and you have complied with your responsibilities under these Terms; (b) will expire on termination of your employment for any reason; (c) cannot be withdrawn or used for any other purpose other than towards the costs of dental treatment by Easy Dental Providers; (d) are personal to you and cannot be transferred to another person; and (d) are non-refundable.

You may be required to provide other details such as your credit card details. The email you enter must be valid and accessible by you. Easy Dental will communicate with you to the email address registered to the Account. You’re responsible for ensuring the email address is current. If we have reason to suspect that you are in breach of these Terms or there has been unauthorised access to your Account, we reserve the right to immediately terminate, cancel or suspend your Account and revoke your access to Services.

FEES

Unless otherwise agreed, you must register a valid debit/credit card to your Account: (a) to start free trials; or (b) to set up or renew a Subscription. You authorise us to process a $.0.01 test transaction to validate your debit/credit card details the first time you provide us with new debit/credit card details.

The Subscription fees (Fees) are notified on the Easy Dental website from time to time.

You agree to pay the Fees by regular payments at the frequency selected by you during the sign-up process (e.g. weekly/monthly/annually) to the debit/credit card registered to your Account.
If we do not receive payment of any Fees from you by the due date then we will notify you via email and suspend the Easy Dental Standard Benefits until all amounts owing to us under these Terms have been paid.

If payment of any amounts owing to us has not been made within 14 days after the date the payment was due then the full amount of the Fees remaining for the balance of you Subscription will become due immediately and you authorise us to charge such amount to the debit/credit card registered to your Account.

We may charge default interest of up to 10% per annum compounding monthly on all amounts that are not paid on time. If any amount that is owed by you continues to remain unpaid then we may also take action to recover that amount and charge you the actual costs incurred in doing so.

Your Subscription will automatically renew for the next 12 months unless you notify us in writing before the expiry of the then current 12 month term. If we do not receive ongoing payment of any Fees from you after an automatic renewal then we will notify you via email and suspend the Easy Dental Standard Benefits until all amounts owing to us under these Terms have been paid.

PROMOTIONS

Promotion eligibility is determined by Easy Dental at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility to prevent promotion abuse. Existing or recent Easy Dental customers are not eligible. We may use information such as device ID, method of payment, or an account email address used with an existing or recent Easy Dental account to determine eligibility. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply.

If you have accepted a promotional Easy Dental Standard Subscription, these Services will automatically renew after the expiry of the promotional period, unless you decide to end your Subscription before the expiry date.
