Some of our Sites may allow you to purchase products directly on them (“eCommerce Sites”). Although we have a variety of eCommerce Sites that sell different types of products and services, the provisions of this Agreement apply to all of them.
Refunds, returns, and exchanges will not be issued for products that have not been purchased directly through a Site. We reserve the right to deny a refund, return, or exchange, and/or issue a shopping credit to your Account on the Site in place of a refund if we determine that our policy is being abused. We may use any means available to us, including coordination with other companies, to determine if you are abusing our policy. This decision is made in our sole discretion and determination.
We may make improvements and/or changes in products or services described on the Sites, add new features, or terminate a Site at any time without notice. We also: (a) reserve the right to change the goods and services advertised or offered for sale through an eCommerce Site, the prices or specifications of such goods and services, and any promotional offers at any time without any notice or liability to you or any other person; (b) cannot guarantee that goods or services advertised or offered for sale on a Site will be available when ordered or thereafter; (c) reserve the right to limit quantities sold or made available for sale; (d) do not warrant that information on a Site (including without limitation product descriptions, colors or photographs) is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free; and (e) reserve the right to modify, cancel, terminate or not process orders (including accepted orders) where the price or other material information on an eCommerce Site is inaccurate, where we have insufficient quantities to fulfill an order or for any other reason in our sole discretion. If we do not process an order for such reason, we will either not charge you or will apply credit to the payment type used in the order. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusions and disclaimers of certain implied warranties, so some of the provisions of this section may not apply to you. Unless otherwise indicated (or if the Site has a non-US domain), products sold on the eCommerce Sites are intended for end use in the United States and are not labeled or intended for international distribution.
Taxes: If we are legally required to collect sales tax on merchandise you order, the tax amount will be added automatically to your purchase price. On rare occasions an error in our tax database may cause the sales tax charge to be incorrect. If this happens, at any time up to two years from your date of purchase you may contact us for a refund of tax overcharges. This right to a refund is your exclusive remedy for sales tax errors.
Payment Processing: We may use a third-party payment processor to process your payment information, including your payment card data. Be aware that you may be subject to the third-party processor’s terms and your information may be subject to their privacy practices.
Returns and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with any product that you purchased through an eCommerce Site, you may return it or exchange it subject to the following conditions:
- To request a return or exchange, you must contact our customer service department by following the instructions on the Site. Some Sites may also let you request a return or exchange through your Account or through other functionality.
- In your return or exchange request, you must indicate the specific product with which you are not satisfied, and include your order number, name, and contact information, as well as the reason for your return or exchange request and the new product with which you would like to replace the returned product if you are requesting an exchange.
- If we accept your return or exchange request, you must initiate the return of the applicable product within 60 days from the date of original shipment. Products returned after the 60-day return period may have their return and exchange denied. If you do not have an Account, we may issue you a shopping credit through other means.
- To initiate the return of a product, you will need to use a return label that we provide you. Once you repackage the product that you are returning, securely affix the return label to you to your package and drop off your package at a local post office or courier office, your return or exchange will begin to be processed as soon as we have confirmed receipt of your return. We may not reimburse you for any shipping and handling fees that you incurred in returning any such product.
- Promptly within receipt of a returned product, a credit will be issued back to the original method of payment if you selected a refund, or the new products that you requested will be shipped to you if you requested an exchange.
- Please note that a new product for which you want to exchange the returned product may not be in stock. In such case, you will receive a shopping credit as described above.
- If you are making an exchange, new products that are in stock may not equate to an even exchange and there may be a price difference between the new product and the returned product. Any difference in pricing for an exchange will be placed back on the original method of payment. If we are unable to do so, your exchange may not be completed. We may contact you for new payment information or elect to treat it as a return instead.
Some eCommerce Sites sell products for which we allow a refund; meaning all or a portion of the purchase price is returned to you without you providing the item back to us. This may be indicated on the applicable eCommerce Site or may be communicated by our customer service. We reserve the right to only issue a refund, or require a return or exchange, in our sole discretion regardless of what an eCommerce Site may indicate. Refunds will not be issued for products that have not been purchased directly through the Site.
Timing: For refund eligible products, you have 90 days from the date of shipment to contact us for a full refund of the purchase price (less shipping and handling fees). Following such 90-day period, no product is eligible for a refund. However, even after 90 days, we encourage you to contact us if you are unsatisfied with a product and so our customer service can improve your experience, which may include providing an exception to this refund policy.
Guarantees: Some of our products or brands carry a “guarantee” which may allow for refunds for longer than 90 days. If so guaranteed, all terms of the guarantee apply, and such guarantee will be treated as a refund for the purpose of this Agreement.
Conditions: Your refund is subject to the following conditions:
- To request a refund, you must contact our customer service department by following the instructions on the eCommerce Site. Some eCommerce Sites may also let you request a refund through your Account or through other functionality.
- In your refund request, you must indicate the specific product with which you are not satisfied and include your order number, name, and contact information, as well as the reason for your refund request.
- If we accept your refund request, you will receive a credit to your original form of payment. If we are unable to credit that form of payment, your refund may not be completed. We may contact you for new payment information or provide your refund in another way, such as through your Account.
Shipping: We process orders daily Monday through Friday from our fulfillment centers. Most orders are shipped the next business day, or in some cases the same business day. You can expect delivery within 3 business days of your order shipping out. If you choose 2-Day Air service, you can expect your order to arrive in 2 business days from the date of shipment. Please allow 1 business day for order processing. International orders (including Canadian orders), may take up to 2 weeks for delivery dependent upon the length of time required for customs processing. Not all Sites allow international orders. Shipping fees vary by Site and can be found as calculated during the order completion process before checking out.
Unless otherwise indicated, we are only able to ship to one shipping address per order. If you’d like to ship to multiple addresses, please place separate orders for each unique address. Most products may be shipped to a P.O. Box or Military APO/FPO addresses, but some restrictions apply. Please make sure your address is correct. Once in transit, we cannot redirect shipments to a new or different address. If you order is returned for an invalid or incorrect address your order will be returned to stock and the order refunded less any shipping charges.
We are not liable for any lost shipments. If you have questions regarding shipping please Contact Us.
Autoshipping and Subscriptions
Some of our brands allow you to sign up or subscribe for automatic reoccurring delivery of certain products at regular intervals (“Autoship”). If you opt-in to Autoship, we automatically bill for and send you the product you subscribed to based upon your chosen frequency. You have control over your Autoship orders, and we send an email reminder ten (10) days before each order ships. You can change your delivery frequency, next order date, or quantity by visiting your Account on the applicable eCommerce Site. Changes to orders can be made any time within 24 hours of the next scheduled shipment date, and you can cancel Autoship at any time. By electing to Autoship, you may receive certain discounts as detailed on the applicable Site. These discounts are not guaranteed and may be discontinued at any time, including while you are still signed up for Autoship.
Promo Codes and Discounts
Certain Sites create or advertise promo codes, discounts, coupon codes, and offers that provide a benefit to you when entered upon checkout. These cannot be applied to prior or completed transactions, they must be provided at the time of purchase. Generally, promo codes and discounts cannot be combined with other offers or used with Autoship or subscription orders. Only consumers can use promo codes, they cannot be used be resellers, wholesalers, practitioners, or the like. You may have no right to discounts, coupons, or offers that are expired or discontinued even if they remain visible on the Site.
Free Items and Gifts with Purchase
Promotions including free items, sometimes referred to as gifts, with purchase are available for a limited time only and offered while supplies last. No rainchecks will be provided for out of stock free items. There is a limit of 1 free item per transaction.
Reward and Loyalty Programs
Some of our brands offer programs where you may receive benefits in connection with certain actions taken with the brand (a “Reward Program”). If you elect to opt-in to any Reward Programs, the terms of this “Reward and Loyalty Programs” section apply to you.
By opting into or participating in a reward program, you acknowledge and agree to be bound by this Agreement and understand this is a binding legal agreement exclusively between you and the Offered By/Sponsor entity below consisting of this section, and the other terms contained in this Agreement.
You agree to that your participation in the Reward Program is an agreement exclusively between you and the “offered by/ sponsor” entity in the chart above, and that no other brands are responsible or liable to you related to any Reward Program besides that sponsor entity. Use of “we,” “us,” “our,” and similar terms in this “Reward and Loyalty Program” section refers to the “offered by/ sponsor” entity.
Eligibility and Suspension
Reward Programs are only open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States (and the District of Columbia), who are at least eighteen (18) years old at the time of entry. Our employees as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible to participate in Rewards Programs. Reward Programs are void where prohibited. Corporations or other entities or organizations of any kind are not eligible to participate in Reward Programs. You may only participate in a Reward Program using one Account. We reserve the right to suspend, modify, or discontinue the eligibility of any person who uses or is suspected of using a Reward Program in a manner inconsistent with this Agreement or any federal or state laws, statutes or ordinances. Note that this suspension or discontinuance may apply to multiple Reward Programs. Similarly, such action by you may result in you losing benefits accrued under the Reward Program. In addition to suspension or discontinuance of eligibility, we have the right to take appropriate administrative and/or legal action against such persons. It is your responsibility to ensure any rewards or benefits you earn under a Reward Program are accrued correctly.
Termination of Reward Programs
Reward Programs continue until we terminate the applicable Reward Program, which we may do at any time, with or without notice to you. Upon discontinuation of the Reward Program you may lose all benefits under that Reward Program, including those yet to be redeemed. We also reserve the right to suspend or modify any Reward Program, at our discretion, at any time. By continuing to participate in the Reward Program, you accept our modifications. We will make reasonable efforts to provide you notice of changes to the prior to implementation.
Rewards are typically accrued points which can be used for other purchases from us. Some Reward Programs require contact information from you to facilitate your participation. In most cases, this information is pulled from your Account. It is your responsibility to make sure the information in your Account is accurate.
Disputes and Disclaimer
All questions or disputes regarding eligibility for a Reward Program, your compliance with this Agreement, accrual of rewards or benefits, or anything else related to a Reward Program, will be resolved by us in our discretion. By participating, you agree that all decisions we make regarding a Reward Program are final. All Reward Programs are subject to all applicable laws and regulations.

Platforms may allow you to interact with certain third-party health, medical, supplement, laboratory, or pharmaceutical providers (“Providers”). These interactions may include purchases. By interacting with these Providers, you acknowledge and agree that such Provider, and its subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and your use of the Platform, the Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third party beneficiary thereof. Your interaction with a Provider may be subject to additional terms (either from us or a Provider) and use of your information may be under the Provider’s privacy notice, which you should obtain from them.
WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE SUITABILITY, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS OR ACCURACY OF THE MEDICAL CARE, PRODUCTS, SERVICES, TREATMENT, OR RESULTS PROVIDED BY ANY PROVIDERS. BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT A HEALTHCARE PROVIDER AND THAT BY USING THE PLATFORM OR SITES YOU ARE NOT ENTERING INTO A DOCTOR-PATIENT OR OTHER HEALTH CARE PROVIDER-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP WITH US.
By using the Platform, you may, however, be entering a doctor-patient or other health care provider-patient relationship with one or more Providers.
We, or Providers, may send you messages, reports, emails, and other communications via the Platform regarding your diagnosis and/or treatment, among other things. These messages may appear in your Account, or in other locations. It is your sole responsibility to monitor and respond to these communications neither us nor any Provider will be responsible in any way and you will not hold us or any Provider liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from your failure to read or respond to these communications or for your failure to comply with any treatment recommendations or instructions from the Provider.
In some cases, the Platform may not be the most appropriate way for you to provide information to, communicate with or seek medical care and treatment from a healthcare provider. For example, certain medical conditions may require an in-person procedure or a healthcare provider other than your Provider, or your Provider may determine that your diagnosis and/or treatment requires an in-person office visit or are otherwise not appropriately addressed through use of the Platform. In such a case, you may receive notification that you will be unable to use the Platform for the particular issue you submitted and providing additional information regarding next steps.
Your financial responsibility for Provider products and services will be shown on the applicable Platform, and you agree to the same. We (and unless otherwise stated, the Providers) have no obligation or duty to accept insurance, discount cards or plans, or government benefits in exchange for products or services offered through Platforms. Autoship, and corresponding reoccurring payment and shipment mechanisms, may apply to products or services obtained from Providers or via a Platform, including prescriptions and laboratory products and services.
Certain products available through the Platform require a valid prescription by a licensed healthcare Provider. You will not be able to obtain a prescription product unless you have completed a consultation with one of the Providers through the Platform, the Provider has determined the prescription product is appropriate for you, and the Provider has written a prescription.
Certain prescriptions can be filled through one of the Providers by using the Platform (or you may fill the prescription at any pharmacy of your choice as prompted during your use of the Platform or emailing the brand of Unicorn Publications LLC directly at their website contact form.
Prescriptions fulfilled by the Pharmacies do not use child-resistant packaging and prescription products will not be dispensed in child-resistant containers.
Some prescriptions are not available through the Providers or must be filled by a local pharmacy of your choice, including prescriptions used for many common primary care conditions. If you fill a prescription with a pharmacy other than the Providers, the Platform will send the prescription to your selected pharmacy, but you will be responsible for picking up or otherwise obtaining the prescription product and paying the pharmacy directly for the cost of the prescription product.
Laboratory Products and Services
Certain laboratory products services available through the Platform, including at-home testing kits and services, require a valid prescription or order by a licensed healthcare Provider. You will not be able to obtain such laboratory services unless you have completed a consultation with one of the Providers through the Platform, the Provider has determined the laboratory product and/or service is appropriate for you and the Provider has prescribed or ordered the laboratory product and/or service.
Currently, laboratory products and services offered through the Platform can only be ordered and fulfilled through our Providers and are not available through local laboratories. If you receive laboratory products and/or services from a Provider through the Platform, the applicable testing materials are shipped to you by the applicable Provider, and the costs associated with the laboratory products and services are included in the total charged to you.
Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology or other means between a healthcare provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. While the provision of health care services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. The telehealth services are not a substitute for in-person health care in all cases. To use the Platform, you may be required to review and agree to an informed consent regarding the use of telehealth (the “Patient Consent”) that will be provided to you by the Providers through the Platform. You acknowledge and agree that the we are third party beneficiaries of all Patient Consents, and that, upon your acceptance of such Patient Consent, we will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce such Patient Consent against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

Copyright Infringement Notices
It is our policy to expeditiously respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA“). This section describes the information that should be present in these notices and the take down procedure we follow with respect to allegedly infringing material. If we receive proper notification of claimed copyright infringement, our response to these notices may include removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material and/or terminating or suspending users. If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the provider of the allegedly infringing content so that they may make a counter notification pursuant to the DMCA. It is our policy to accommodate and not interfere with standard technical measures used by copyright owners to identify or protect their copyrighted works that we determine are reasonable under the circumstances.
If you believe that any Content on a Site infringes upon any copyright which you own or control, you may send a written notification to our designated copyright agent (the “Designated Agent”), identified below, with the following information:
- A description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed, with sufficient detail so that we can identify the alleged infringing material;
- The URL or other specific location on the Site that contains the alleged infringing material described in (a) above, with reasonably sufficient information to enable us to locate the alleged infringing material;
- Your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address;
- The electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or a person authorized to act on the owner’s behalf;
- A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement by you that the information contained in your notice is accurate and that you attest under penalty of perjury that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf
Designated Agent: Greenberg Traurig, LLP
Address: 1201 K Street, Suite 1100, Sacramento, CA 95814
Phone: +1 (916) 868-0630
To notify the provider of the allegedly infringing material to which we have removed or disabled access, we may forward a copy of your infringement notice, including your name and email address to the provider of the allegedly infringing material.
We may terminate users who, in our sole discretion, are deemed to be infringers. Knowingly misrepresenting in a notification that material is infringing can subject you to damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer. If you receive an infringement notification from us, you may file a counter notification pursuant with our Designated Agent pursuant to the DMCA. To file a counter notification, please provide our Designated Agent with the following information:
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access was disabled;
- Your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address;
- The following statement: “I consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the [insert the federal judicial district in which your address is located]”;
- The following statement: “I will accept service of process from [insert the name of the person who submitted the infringement notification] or his/her agent”;
- The following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the affected material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled”; and
- Your signature, in physical or electronic form.
Upon receipt of valid counter notification, we will promptly provide the person who provided the original infringement notification with a copy of your counter notification and inform that person that we will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 business days. Further, we will replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it not less than 10, nor more than 14, business days following receipt of your counter notice, unless Designated Agent first receives notice from the person who submitted the original infringement notification that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Site.
Updates to this Agreement
We may revise or otherwise change or update this Agreement from time to time. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of such changes. However, please check the “Last Updated” legend at the top of this page to see when this Agreement was last revised. When changes are made to this Agreement they will become immediately effective when published on this page unless otherwise noted. We encourage you to periodically review this Agreement―there may have been changes to our policies that may affect you. If you do not agree to the Agreement as modified, then you must discontinue your use of our Sites. Your continued use of a Site will signify your continued agreement to this Agreement as revised. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you of material changes to this Agreement. Such efforts might include posting notice on the Site, an email to the address we have on file, or a message in your Account.
We may assign this Agreement at any time with or without notice to you. You may not assign or sublicense this Agreement or any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without our prior written consent.
This section discloses our financial relationships with certain affiliates, advertisers, sponsors, and other parties that appear on the Sites and our social media channels.
We sometimes sell and thus receive monetary and other forms compensation from affiliates for various advertising, sponsorships, insertion orders and promotional campaigns that we feature on the Sites. In other words, sometimes there is a paid connection between a product or service mentioned, reviewed or recommended on a Site and the affiliate (i.e., the owner of that third-party product or service). If you ultimately decide to purchase a product or service mentioned on a Site, we may receive additional compensation from that purchase from the affiliate.
Further, Sites may post or otherwise promote content, including editorial content, which may feature third party products and services (the “Affiliate Products”) and which may link to third party owned and operated websites where you can purchase Affiliate Products. Any time that you click on a link to an Affiliate’s Product on a Site and then follow the link to purchase an Affiliate Product on the affiliate’s website, we may receive compensation from the affiliate offering the Affiliate Product. The content featuring Affiliate Product(s) may not always be identified on the Site as paid or sponsored content and the compensation that we receive from affiliates may influence what content, topics or posts we make on the Website and where they are posted.
Even though we may receive compensation in connection with our feature of certain products or services and/or your purchase of Affiliate Products as outlined in this Section, we still endeavor to provide our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, and experiences as they relate to the products and services that are featured on the Sites.
Also, you will regularly see third party ads posted on the Site. Each time you click on an ad, we will receive compensation from the third-party advertiser, even if you do not purchase something from the third-party.
This Agreement applies exclusively to your access to, and use of, the Sites (including the Mobile App and Platforms) and Reward Programs and does not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us for products, services, programs or otherwise. Additional policies and terms may apply to use of specific portions of a Site and to the purchase of certain merchandise or services and are included as part of this Agreement whether they reference this Agreement or not.
Other types of agreements and policies that you may be subject to include, but are not limited to:
- Policies for retailers, distributors, and distributors
- Contest and sweepstake rules
- Conditional guarantees
- Rebate Rules
- Privacy policies
- Minimum advertised price policies
- Employment agreements
Other policies and agreements are typically found by navigating the Site, typically by checking Site headers and footers and by reviewing hyperlinked terms at the point of sale.
Any sweepstakes, contests, coupons, rebates or other promotions made available through a Site may be governed by specific rules that are separate from this Agreement. By participating in any such promotion, you will become subject to those rules, which may vary from the terms set forth herein and which, in addition to describing such promotion, may have eligibility requirements, such as certain age or geographic restrictions. It is your responsibility to read the applicable rules to determine whether your participation, registration, submission and/or entry are valid; you agree to read and abide by the applicable rules.
Should we employ you, none of the materials provided on a Site constitute or should be considered part or of an employment contract.
Important Additional Terms
The Sites and this Agreement are in effect until terminated by us. In addition to any right or remedy that may be available to us under applicable law, we may suspend, limit, or terminate all or a portion of your access to a Site or any of its features at any time with or without notice and with or without cause, including without limitation, if we believe that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement concerning protection of intellectual property rights, authorized use, user submitted content, disclaimers, limitations of liability, indemnity, and disputes, as well as any other provisions that by their nature should survive, shall survive any such termination.
Upon any such termination, (i) you must destroy all Content obtained from the Sites and all copies thereof; (ii) you will immediately cease all use of and access to the Sites; (iii) we may delete or disable access to any of your User Content at any time; (iv) and we may delete your Registered User Account at any time.

You agree that if your use of a Site is terminated pursuant to this Agreement, you will not attempt to use that Site under any name, real or assumed, and further agree that if you violate this restriction after being terminated, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from any and all liability that we may incur therefore. We reserve the right to have all violators prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Even after the termination of this Agreement or of your Account or access to a Site, any User Content you have posted or submitted may remain on a Site indefinitely.
Our Sites are not designed to appeal to minors, and we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children under 13. YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 13 TO ACCESS AND USE OUR SITES.

Disputes, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
ARBITRATION USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, ALLOWS FOR MORE LIMITED DISCOVERY THAN IN COURT, AND IS SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY COURTS. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO BE REPRESENTED BY A LAWYER IN ARBITRATION OR PROCEED WITHOUT ONE. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Confidentiality: The parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and the Award, including the hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
Governing Law and Rules: This Agreement and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of California, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16). In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator is not empowered to award punitive or exemplary damages, except where permitted by statute, and the parties waive any right to recover any such damages. In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator may not award any incidental, indirect or consequential damages, including damages for lost profits.
Prevailing Party: In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator shall award to the prevailing party, if any, the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. If the arbitrator determines a party to be the prevailing party under circumstances where the prevailing party won on some but not all of the claims and counterclaims, the arbitrator may award the prevailing party an appropriate percentage of the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. The parties adopt and agree to implement the JAMS Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedure (as it exists on the effective date of this Agreement) with respect to any final award in an arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement.
Seeking Arbitration: If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to us, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (“Notice”). The Notice to us must be addressed to:
Unicorn Publications LLC
ATTN: Legal Department
18575 Jamboree Road #6
Irvine, California 92612
If we initiate arbitration, we will send a written Notice to an email address you have previously provided to us, if available. A Notice, whether sent by you or by us, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or us may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. Arbitration forms can be downloaded from www.jamsadr.com. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after we receive Notice that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$10,000 or the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees.
Hearing: If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the JAMS Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS Rules. In the event that the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of submitted documents, the arbitrator’s decision and award will be made and delivered within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator, unless extended by the arbitrator. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules.
No Class Actions: YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
Injunctive Relief: Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and we both agree that you or we may sue in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights or in other scenarios where injunctive relief is appropriate. In the event a court or arbitrator having jurisdiction finds any portion of this Agreement unenforceable, that portion shall not be effective and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain effective. No waiver, express or implied, by either party of any breach of or default under this Agreement will constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or default or be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
Each claim or statement about the effectiveness of our products or comparing the effectiveness of our products is expressly limited to the United States, unless otherwise disclosed. The products referred to on Sites may only be available in the territory to which that Site is directed and may not be available in your country. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION THAT THE INFORMATION AND MATERIALS ON ANY SITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE INFORMATION AND OTHER MATERIALS PROMOTING THE PRODUCTS IDENTIFIED ON THAT SITE, ARE APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE IN OTHER LOCATIONS OTHER THAN THE LOCATION FOR WHICH THE SITE IS DIRECTED.

Those who choose to access a Site or participate in a Reward Program do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local statutes, orders, regulations, rules, and other laws. You are also subject to United States export controls and are responsible for any violations of such controls, including without limitation any United States embargoes or other federal rules and regulations restricting exports.
Despite the above, as a consumer you will benefit from any mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you are a resident. Nothing in this Agreement affects your rights as a consumer to rely on such mandatory provisions of local law. The local law of your jurisdiction may entitle you to have a dispute relating to this Agreement heard by your local courts. This Agreement does not limit any such rights that you have that apply. HOWEVER, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, WE DO NOT CONSENT TO THE JURISDICTION OF ANY COURTS OTHER THAN THOSE REFERENCED IN THIS AGREEMENT AND RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CONTEST THAT IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION OF ANY OTHER COURT. We may limit a Site’s availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time and in our sole discretion. This Agreement, as well as all other documents related to it, including notices and correspondence, will be in the English language only.
