2. Shipments, Returns, and Exchanges
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, shipping, return and exchange of any merchandise ordered through the Site or in connection with your membership are subject to the Bombfell 'Shipping and Return Policy.
Shipments. When you sign up for Bombfell, we will send you some Products chosen by us, at our sole discretion. You will be able to preview the Products prior to shipment by either logging into your account or via an email that is delivered to the email associated with your account. You can modify the previewed order at any time prior to shipment, and upon receipt, try the Products on to see what you like. You can decide to keep all, some, or none of the Products in the shipment, and we will charge you for the items you keep as described in the Payment section (below).
Returns. If you want to return any of the Products in your shipment, simply place them in the return package we provide and mail them back to us at no cost to you. Any returned Products must be postmarked with a date within the 7 day try-on period (the "Return Date") and must be unworn, unused, unwashed, undamaged, with tags still attached (if applicable), and otherwise in the original condition. Returns requested after the 7 day try-on period are returnable for store credit only. Returns are due back in the mail before your try-on period ends. Returns requested more than 30 days after arrival will be subject to a $10 restocking fee. Returns received in damaged or used condition will not be refunded. You will retain title to the Products and risk of loss of the Products will remain with you until we receive the returned Products and we determine that the Products were returned unworn and in their original condition, at which point you will be deemed to have rejected the Products and title will return to us. We will assume that you have chosen to keep any Products in the shipment that you do not postmark back to us by the Return Date, and we will charge your Account for those Products any time after the Return Date. Any exceptions permitting a return postmarked later than the Return Date must be requested in a timely manner and may be granted at the sole discretion of Bombfell. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to exchange or replace any item. Replacement of Products and credits to your account for shipped merchandise claimed as not received are subject to our investigation, which may include postal-service notification. We will adjust your account at our discretion. Repeated claims of undelivered merchandise may result in the cancellation of your membership.
Modifying Your Order. If you want to modify, or exchange any of the Products in, your order preview (e.g., for a different style or color), you can request an exchange by accessing your account. If an exchange is available for a particular Product, you will be given the choice to exchange.
Legal Details. Your scheduling of an order is an offer to purchase the Products. We may accept your offer by processing your payment and shipping your order. All Products will be deemed accepted by you upon shipment, and title to and risk of loss passes to you when we provide the Products to a common carrier.
Upon signing up and then for each subsequent order, we will charge you a non-refundable "Styling Fee" in the amount set forth on the Services. The Styling Fee will be charged to your credit card or other payment method. Within seven (7) days of receiving your shipment, we request that you return any Products you don't want. If you choose to keep Products from your order, the Styling Fee will be credited towards the purchase price of those Products. You may pay for the Styling Fee and for any Products from your order via credit card or other payment method then available on the Services. If you have a credit in your Account at the time of processing the Styling Fee or paying for Products, the credit will be applied before we charge your credit card or other payment method then available. By submitting your payment information to us, you authorize us to charge your credit card or other payment method then available in accordance with this policy, including for Products that are returned late or damaged. If you receive shipments automatically, you agree to the Styling Fee being charged to the card on file on a recurring basis according to the frequency you selected. You can pause recurring shipments by going to your Account Preferences page or cancel any future shipments via the account cancellation page or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you want to stop receiving automatic shipments from the email address then currently associated with your account. You may cancel an upcoming order by accessing your account and cancelling the scheduled styling at any time before the order is due to ship. You represent that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary authorization to do so. We will not be liable in the event your children or others acting with or without your permission use your credit card, PayPal account, or other means of payment to make orders on the Services; however, you may report any unauthorized use to us, and we will use reasonable measures within our control to help prevent future unauthorized use of your credit card or other payment method.
4. Pricing and Products
Bombfell does not disclose the prices of its Products until you receive a Styling Preview. While Bombfell makes efforts to follow the style and price preferences you express in your Styling Profile, we do not guarantee that every item in your order will satisfy those preferences. You are responsible for paying for all Products in your order which you keep, whether they conform to your Style Profile or not, unless you return the Products in accordance with our return policy. You are responsible for the payment of any Styling Fees, and state and local sales taxes that apply to your order where we elect or are required to collect and remit such taxes. If we don't collect the applicable sales tax, you are responsible for payment of the applicable use taxes. Bombfell may provide certain promotions or credits to customers. Depending on the type of promotion or credit offered, it may reduce the amount of state and local sales taxes that apply to your order. The application of the promotion or credit will be reflected on your order invoice.
5. Gift Cards
You may purchase gift cards through the Services (“Gift Cards”). Gift Cards can be redeemed solely through our Services for Products or Styling Fees. Gift Cards cannot be redeemed for cash except where required by law. For balance information, or to replace the remaining value on a damaged card, contact: email@example.com . Gift Cards require no maintenance, activation, or other fees. Risk of loss and title for Gift Cards pass to the purchaser upon electronic transmission to the purchaser or designated recipient, or our delivery to the carrier, whichever is applicable.

Purchases using Gift Cards are not Qualifying Referrals. The amount of the Referral Credit will be the amount specified on our Referral Program page available at: https://www.bombfell.com/account/invites at the time the referred friend orders and pays the Styling Fee for a shipment. You may be required to pay taxes, and we may be required to withhold taxes, on the value of redeemed Referral Credits if the value exceeds certain thresholds. Referral Credits will be reflected in your Account in a commercially reasonable amount of time after the Qualifying Referral has been completed. In any event, the maximum amount of Referral Credits that you can receive in any calendar year is $599. Restrictions. Referral Credits can be accrued solely by you and you may not earn Referral Credits by:
- permitting another individual to use your Account

- upon notice, any other restriction we impose on participants in the Program
By acquiring Referral Credits, you agree and acknowledge that Bombfell is granting you a limited, revocable license to a digital item, and that Referral Credits are not your personal property.

You are responsible for notifying Bombfell if you believe the number of Referral Credits in your Account is incorrect.
We reserve the right to modify, suspend or terminate the Program and to void any Referral Credits upon notice to you. We may provide such notice in any way compliant with applicable law including via email to the last email address you provided to us, by amending these terms or posting a change to the Program on our Referral Program page.

17. Limitation of Liability
You acknowledge and agree that we are only willing to collect payment, facilitate the fulfillment of orders, and provide access to the Services if you agree to certain limitations of our liability to you and to third parties.

20. Arbitration Agreement; Class Waiver; Waiver of Trial by Jury
Please read this Section ("Arbitration Agreement") carefully. It is part of your contract with us and affects your rights. It contains procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
Time Limits. If either party pursues arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.
Waiver of Jury Trial. The parties hereby waive their constitutional and statutory rights to go to court and have a trial in front of a judge or a jury, instead electing that all claims and disputes will be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically subject only to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between the parties in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, the parties waive all rights to a jury trial, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. All claims and disputes within the scope of this arbitration agreement must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class basis, and claims of more than one customer or user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or consolidated with those of any other customer or user.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, will be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph will not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Survival. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party's patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets will not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit exclusively to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within New York, New York for such purpose.
