All Company Content is the property of Company and its affiliated companies or licensors and is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws.
Any fees that the Company may charge you for the Application or Service are due immediately and are non-refundable. This no refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate your usage, or our decision to terminate your usage, of the Service or the Application; any disruption to our Application or Service, either planned, accidental or intentional; or any other reason whatsoever. The Company may change the fees for our Service or Application, as we deem necessary for our business. It is your obligation to check back at our website periodically to confirm the applicable fees for the Service or Application.
No transaction fee to the service professional (the “tippee”) or sub-merchant will be applied. A minimum convenience fee will apply to the person paying the gratuity to the tippee (the “tipper”) or sub-merchant per transaction executed (see below, Transaction Fees).
The fees payable for the Service are calculated as described below. All Transactions (defined below) are to be paid in U.S. dollars. All fees are payable by the tipper only, and shall be collected by the Company by adding the amount of the fee to each occurrence of the payment by the tipper of a gratuity to the tippee or sub-merchant (each, a “Transaction”).
For gratuity or sub-merchant payments (payment by tipper to service professional/tippee or seller), the following convenience fees shall apply: 2% of the amount of the applicable payment per Transaction.
The Users acknowledge and agree that the Company uses Braintree Payments, Inc. (the “Processor”), for payment processing in connection with all Transactions, and User hereby authorizes the Company to access the Processor’s payment gateway so that Transactions submitted through the Application may be completed.

Further, User acknowledges and agrees that, in connection with the use of BRAVO and the Processor services:
- User will provide all information required by BRAVO and the Processor;
- User will be jointly and severally liable, with the Company, for all fines, chargebacks, refunds, and other expenses incurred by User and for fees and expenses incurred in the enforcement of the Processor’s services;
- All Transactions must take place in the United States;
- As between Company and the User, Company shall be the owner of all right, title, and interest in and to all data submitted by or to the Processor in connection with the Transactions.
Balances & Transfers
You do not need to maintain a balance in your account in order to make or receive gratuity payments. Payments are taken directly from the payer’s credit or debit card and sent to the payee’s bank account. The service professional will set up preferred account for funds transfer during the sign-up process. This can be changed any time in the app under “update personal information”. Once payment is made, BRAVO will automatically transfer the funds in the user’s bank account. BRAVO is not responsible for failed or delayed deposits caused by user error such as wrong bank information, address or insufficient credit or funds.
Distribution of a “gratuity pool”, as an agreement between service professionals’ participants in the pool for the agreed shift and/or period of time, is the sole responsibility of the applicable service professionals and not the Company. Since certain service professionals may not be legally included in a valid tip pool, service professionals are encouraged to seek appropriate legal guidance prior to establishing such a pool. The Company takes no responsibility for any liabilities related to the failure of the service professionals to comply with all applicable laws with respect to tip pools.

You and Company agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Service or Application (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s s, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class User in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Company otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Company otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the modification-related provisions above, if Company changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to Bravo Support) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of Company’s email to you notifying you of such change.

No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, the Company or any third party provider as a result of this Agreement or use of the Service or Application. If any provision of the Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under law. The failure of the Company to enforce any right or provision in this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by the Company in writing.
