3.     Subscription; Billing; Services; Purchases; Acceptance

By signing up to receive your first Beauty Box, you agree to be automatically enrolled in the Beauty Box Program subscription service (the “Subscription Service”) and to be automatically charged on a recurring basis, to the payment card you provide, the then-in-effect cost to ship a Beauty Box to you in each quarterly season (each, a “Subscription Period”) until you cancel..  When you open your Subscription Service account, you will be billed for that Subscription Period and sent the Beauty Box for that current Subscription Period. Thereafter, you will be charged the cost to ship a Beauty Box to you for each subsequent Subscription Period, beginning on the next Subscription Period. You will continue to receive a Box approximately once each Subscription Period until you cancel (or we terminate) your Subscription Service pursuant to these Terms.  If you purchase a Limited Edition Box, you will not be automatically enrolled in the Subscription Service.  Your purchase of the Limited Edition Box remains subject to these Terms.

As part of your Subscription Service, your credit or debit card will be billed for each Subscription Period.  You may cancel your Subscription Service at any time.  To avoid being billed for each Subscription Period you must cancel your Subscription at least two days prior to the billing date for each Subscription Period (the “Billing Date”).  The Billing Date for any Subscription Period will be on or after the following dates, as applicable:  February 24th, May 19th, August 18th, and November 17th.  The Billing Date is subject to change at any time.  You will receive an email, to the address that you provided, notifying you in advance of each Billing Date.  You accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to your cancellation of your Subscription Service.

To cancel your Subscription Service at any time, you must submit a cancellation request through your subscription account page on the Site.  If your credit or debit card cannot be charged for any reason, you will not receive the box for that Subscription Period, as applicable.

You cannot select specific products for your box. Walmart may, in its sole discretion, change the number and/or types of items offered in any box and/or the price of any box. If you do not agree with any changes made to your box or are not satisfied with the products selected, your sole remedy is to cancel your Subscription Service.

You represent that all billing information you provide Walmart is truthful and accurate. Providing any untruthful or inaccurate information constitutes a breach of these Terms and may result in cancellation of your order and Subscription Service. Prior to accepting an order, Walmart may also request additional information from you. Walmart reserves the right to refuse or cancel an order (including any box) for any reason including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies, or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by Walmart’s credit and fraud avoidance department. If your subscription is canceled after your credit card (or other payment account) has been charged, Walmart will not issue a credit to your credit card (or other applicable payment account) in the amount of the charge. Walmart will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. Walmart may request a pre-authorization for some orders placed online with a credit or debit card. This pre-authorization will not be billed to you; however, your card issuer may hold this amount for a short period of time. Your card issuer determines the length of time the pre-authorization is held. Walmart does this to ensure that the card details are still valid and that you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction.

Walmart reserves the right to limit the quantity of subscriptions and items purchased per person, per household or per order for any reason. These restrictions may apply to subscriptions or orders placed by the same subscription account, the same credit or debit card, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. Walmart will notify you should such limits be applied. Walmart also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers or resellers. For purposes of these Terms, “reselling” shall be defined as purchasing or intending to purchase any product(s) from Walmart for the purpose of engaging in a commercial sale of that same product(s) with a third party.

4.     Billing and Payment Processor

Walmart uses a third-party payment processor to process credit card transactions made through the Site. If you purchase products from Walmart or make any payments via the Site with your credit card, the credit card information that you submit to Walmart will be protected by encryption, such as with the Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") protocol.  Encryption decreases the likelihood that your credit card information will be stolen or intercepted during transmission to Walmart. You are responsible for all charges incurred under your account, whether made by you or another person using your account.

5.     Shipping; Delivery; Risk of Loss

Any merchandise or products purchased from the Site (including any box which will be shipped to you as part of your subscription to the Site) will be shipped by a third party carrier. As a result, title and risk of loss for such merchandise will pass to you upon Walmart’s delivery of the merchandise or products to the carrier.

Delivery of items from the Site to addresses outside the United States is limited. Some items also have restricted delivery within the United States. Delivery times for all boxes Walmart ships to you as part of your subscription are determined at Walmart’s sole discretion based on Walmart’s chosen method of shipping and the destination of the box. Delivery times for all other products are determined based on the method of shipping chosen when items are purchased and the destination of the items.

We are unable to cancel, make modifications or change your shipping address after your checkout is completed. Please be sure to verify your selections and information before you complete your order.

6.     Product and Pricing Information; Quantities

All prices displayed on the Site are quoted in U.S. dollars. Walmart will add shipping and handling fees and applicable sales/use tax in accordance with its then existing policies. Walmart tries to make sure the information available on the Site is complete and reliable. Certain information may contain product errors or typographical errors, which Walmart can correct without liability. For the avoidance of doubt, Walmart reserves the right without prior notice to discontinue or change specifications and prices on products and services offered on the Site without incurring any obligation to you. Walmart does not guarantee that all products described on the Site will be available.

Pricing errors may occur on the Site. Walmart reserves the right without prior notice to cancel any orders, whether arising out of your subscription or otherwise, containing pricing errors, with no further obligations to you, even after your receipt of an order confirmation or shipping notice from Walmart. Walmart may, at its discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Pricing for products may be different on the Site or from prices available in Walmart stores, Walmart.com, any other Walmart affiliated site or on Walmart mobile applications (pricing and availability remain subject to confirmation at checkout for mobile users).

It is important to note the following: (a) Walmart’s physical stores do not honor Internet prices or competitor advertisements from outside of a physical store’s local trade territory; and (b) Walmart’s e-commerce site, Walmart.com, is not directly affiliated with this subscription program but, in any event, does not price match with any other online or offline retailer.

IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SITE, PRODUCT, SERVICES, OR WITH ANY OF THESE TERMS, OR FEEL WE HAVE BREACHED THESE TERMS, YOUR SOLE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE SITE.

17.  Export Policy

You acknowledge that some goods licensed or sold on the Site are subject to the customs and export control laws and regulations of the United States of America and may also be subject to the customs and export laws and regulations of the country in which the products are manufactured and/or received and you agree to comply with all applicable laws. By making a purchase, or by downloading or using technology or software from the Site, you agree to abide by the applicable laws, rules and regulations and you agree, represent and warrant that no Company materials will be accessed from, downloaded in, released in, carried to transferred to, transshipped through, exported to, or re-exported to any restricted territory (or national resident thereof), any person, entity or organization on the U.S. Treasury Department’s List of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Persons List or Entity List, or otherwise in violation of law.

18.  Internet Security.

Company uses reasonable efforts to ensure that the Site is generally available. However, there will be occasions when access to the Site will be interrupted or unavailable.

You agree that Company shall not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site. You understand that the technical processing and transmission of any Site content may be transferred unencrypted and involve: (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.

19.  Arbitration

You and Company agree that any disputes arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of the Site, including disputes arising from or concerning their interpretation, violation, invalidity, non-performance, or termination, which cannot be resolved informally, shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before one (1) arbitrator; provided, however, in the event that the dispute involves an allegation of liability in excess of $250,000 USD, three (3) arbitrators shall be used. Any dispute arising out of these Terms shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual; and an arbitrator must also follow and enforce these Terms, as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Arbitration shall take place in New York City, New York, unless Company elects otherwise.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Company users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Company user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.

You acknowledge and agree that you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. You further acknowledge and agree that you waive your right to participate as a plaintiff or class member 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.

In the event this Section 19 is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 19 will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this Section 19 will survive termination of the Terms and your use of the Site.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party retains 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 copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.

20.  Governing Law

Subject to the arbitration requirements set forth herein, these Terms shall be governed by and construed under Arkansas law without regard to conflicts of law provisions. Any action or proceeding arising out of or related to this Terms or your use of the Site must be brought in the state or federal courts of Arkansas and you consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts.

21.  Procedure for Making a Claim of Copyright Infringement

Walmart respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied and is accessible on the Site in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please see Walmart’s DMCA Procedure for instructions on how to contact us to report possible copyright infringement.

22.  General

The Site is controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting anything else, Company makes no representation that the Site, Site Content, User Content, Materials, services, products, information, or other materials available on, in, or through the Site is appropriate or available for use outside the United States, and access to them from territories where they are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site from outside the United States do so on their own will and are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.

These Terms, including the Privacy Policy, represent the complete legal agreement between you and Company regarding the Site and govern your use of the Site, and any transactions you may have with Company through the Site. These Terms supersede all prior agreements and representations between them. Headings used in these Terms are for reference purposes only and in no way define or limit the scope of the section. If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable and the other terms of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of Company to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and shall not limit Company's rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches.
