BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND ROBYN ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AS DESCRIBED IN MORE DETAIL BELOW. SECTION 17 (ADDITIONAL WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS), SECTION 19 (LIMITATION OF LIABILITY), SECTION 20 (GOVERNING LAW; FORUM; CLASS ACTION WAIVER), SECTION 21 (BINDING ARBITRATION) AND SECTION 22 (WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL, RELEASE) (TOGETHER AS THE “DURABLE PROVISIONS”) CONTAIN IMPORTANT LEGAL PROVISIONS. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY. BY USING THE SERVICES YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT AS IT MAY BE UPDATED FROM TIME TO TIME. USE OF THE SERVICES IS PERMITTED ONLY UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICES.
1. Acceptance of Terms of Service.
a. By using the Services in any manner, including but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site or registering an Account, you agree to these Terms of Service and all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time on the Site by us, each of which is incorporated by reference and each of which may be updated from time to time.
b. Certain of the Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified by us from time to time; your use of such Services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms of Service by this reference.
c. These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Services, including, without limitation, users who are contributors of content, information, and other materials or services, registered or otherwise. Notwithstanding that users will be expressly asked to signify their agreement to these Terms of Service by “clicking to agree” (or some other similar action) in connection with the creation of an account (the foregoing as the “Clickwrap Action”), these Terms of Service are binding upon all users of the Services, even those who have not taken the Clickwrap Action.
2. Access to Services.
These Terms of Service grant you a limited, non-exclusive right to access and use the Services, including Content available made available through the Services, as subject to all applicable provisions hereof (the foregoing as the “Access Right”). As further set forth herein, your Access Right may be terminated by Robyn immediately upon notice to you, for any reason or no reason.
a. Generally. If you make any financial transaction through or with the Services, including, without limitation, the purchase of goods or services, whether provided by Robyn or any third party, you will pay to Robyn the amounts listed by Robyn in connection with such applicable transaction, including all fees, taxes and other charges in connection therewith. Robyn may provide additional provisions pertaining to such financial transactions, including pertaining to method and timing of payment (“Payment Terms”). You agree to be bound by, and will comply with, all Payment Terms. In connections with payments made to, through or otherwise handled by Robyn, Robyn may utilize the services of a third party service (the “Payment Provider”). You may be required to enter into an agreement with the Payment Provider. Robyn is not responsible for the Payment Provider and, for the purposes of this Agreement, the Payment Provider is deemed a Third Party Site.
b. Accounts. Robyn may charge you certain fees in connection with your creation, use or exploitation of your account, including any transactions made through your account. You agree to be bound by, and will comply with, all Payment Terms provided by Robyn in connection with your Account. You acknowledge and agree that failure to strictly comply with the Payment Terms provided by Robyn in connection with your Account may result in suspension or termination of your account or you being banned from access to or use of the Services.
c. Collection and Interest. Robyn may charge you late fees for amounts not paid by their due date. Such late fees will be the lesser of one and a half percent per month (1.5%) and the highest interest rate allowable under applicable law. You agree to, and will, pay Robyn its reasonable costs of collection (and other related expenses) in connection with any amounts you owe to Robyn. Robyn may refer debts to collections agencies as determined within its sole discretion.
d. Card Authorization. By making payments to Robyn or through the Services, you certify that you are the owner of the debit card, credit card (or other payment card), or bank account (each a “Card”) that you submit to Robyn for all such purchases. You are solely responsible for all activity and purchases on your account relating to the Services. You hereby authorize Robyn to initiate charges to your Card for all charges you place through the Services or your Account, including any auto-ship orders, and any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges. This authorization will remain in effect, unless Robyn receives a written notice from you stating that such authorization is terminated. Such termination will be effectuated within reasonable time thereafter (as judged within the reasonable discretion of Robyn) as would allow your financial institution and Robyn a reasonable opportunity to terminate such authorization.
e. Insufficient Funds. You expressly agree that Robyn shall not be liable for any overdraft or insufficient funds charges, such as finance charges and late fees, that are caused by your failure to maintain sufficient funds to pay Robyn (or any third party) for your purchases and charges hereunder or otherwise through the Services. If there are insufficient funds associated with your card, or if any transaction is rejected, it may result in Robyn charging you service fees and/or interest in connection therewith.

If you are under age 13, you may not, under any circumstances or for any reason, use the Services.

By using the Services, you agree, represent and warrant that you have consulted with your physician before engaging in activity based upon information available or services provided through the Services. We do not recommend or endorse any specific tests or treatment regimen, Healthcare Providers, procedures, opinions, Service Content or other information that may appear through the Services.

These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law and the internal laws of the State of New York, without reference to its conflicts of law rules.
For any dispute not subject to binding arbitration hereunder, you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to submit to the jurisdiction of the State or Federal Courts located in Los Angeles County in California, for all disputes, including any litigation (each a “Dispute”), arising out of or relating to this Agreement, your use of the Services or any purchases made through the Services. Further, you covenant not to commence any litigation relating thereto except in such courts and irrevocably waive any objection to such jurisdiction and venue, including any objection of forum non conveniens. Each party shall be responsible for their own expenses, costs, and attorney’s fees for any dispute arising out of or in connection to this Agreement.
YOU HEREBY KNOWINGLY AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDING, IN COURT OR BEFORE ANY OTHER COMPETENT TRIBUNAL, INCLUDING AT ARBITRATION IF APPLICABLE, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR AS A MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR ABILITY TO JOIN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST ROBYN IN CONNECTION WITH THE ANY CLAIM ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO SITES.
21. BINDING ARBITRATION.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Services, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Robyn or through the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Service as a court would.
AAA will conduct any arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules (or if you are an individual and use the Services for personal or household use, or if the value of the dispute is $75,000 or less whether or not you are an individual or how you use the Services, its Consumer Arbitration Rules). For more information, see www.adr.org or call 1-800-778-7879. To start an arbitration, mail us at the contact information below. In a dispute involving $25,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. Any in-person hearing will take place in Los Angeles County, California, in the United States. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to you individually to satisfy your individual claim. Under AAA Rules, the arbitrator rules on his or her own jurisdiction, including the arbitrability of any claim. But a court has exclusive authority to enforce the prohibition on arbitration on a class-wide basis or in a representative capacity. As set forth in Section 20, all arbitrations will be on an individual basis only.

YOU AND ROBYN HEREBY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT, OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release Robyn from any and all claims, demands, losses, damages, rights, and actions of any kind including arising from or related to personal injury, death or property damage, that are directly or indirectly related to or arise from: (i) the actions and omissions of other users of the sites, including your interactions with such other users; (ii) the actions and omissions of Marketplace Providers, including your interactions with, relationships with and/or reliance upon such Marketplace Providers; (ii) the actions and omissions of Third Party Sites, including your interactions with such Third Party Sites.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify or replace any of these Terms of Service, or change, suspend, or discontinue the Services (including without limitation, the availability of any feature, database, or content) at any time by posting a notice on the Site or by sending you notice through the Services, via e-mail or by another appropriate means of electronic communication. We may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. While we will timely provide notice of modifications, it is also your responsibility to check these Terms of Service periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Services following notification of any changes to these Terms of Service constitutes acceptance of those changes.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THIS AGREEMENT TO THE CONTRARY, IF ROBYN MODIFIES ANY DURABLE PROVISION, ANY MODIFICATION WILL NOT APPLY TO ANY INDIVIDUAL DISPUTE THAT HAS ACCRUED PRIOR TO THE DATE OF SUCH MODIFICATION.
a. Severability. If any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unimpaired but shall instead remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Further, the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a provision that comes closest to the intention of the parties that underlie the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision, except to the extent no such provision is valid, legal and enforceable, in which case such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
b. Entire Agreement. These Terms of Service are the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Services, including use of the Site, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and us with respect to the Services. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. The captions and section and paragraph headings used in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. The construction of this Agreement shall not take into consideration the party who drafted or whose representative drafted any portion of this Agreement, and no canon of construction shall be applied that resolves ambiguities against the drafter of a document. Neither the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”) nor the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (“UCITA”) shall not apply to this Agreement or its interpretation. Whenever the context so requires, each pronoun or verb used herein shall be construed in the singular or the plural sense and each capitalized term defined herein and each pronoun used herein shall be construed in the masculine, feminine or neuter sense. References to Sections and Appendices are to Sections and Appendices of this Agreement unless otherwise specified. Whenever the words “include”, “includes” or “including” are used, they are deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.” The words “herein,” “hereof” and other words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular section, subsection, paragraph, clause, or other subdivision. The word “or” is not exclusive but shall mean “and/or”. The symbol “$”, and all references to cash amounts, refer to United States dollars.
c. Force Majeure. We shall not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation.
e. Agency. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of these Terms of Service and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect.
f. Notices. Unless otherwise specified in these Term of Service, all notices under these Terms of Service will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by e- mail; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service. Electronic notices should be sent to [email protected] We may use any notice address you provide to us, including through any Account. We may update our notice contact information by updating the contact in these Terms of Service.
g. No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms of Service. Waiver of compliance in any particular instance does not mean that we will waive compliance in the future. In order for any waiver of compliance with these Terms of Service to be binding, we must provide you with written notice of such waiver through one of our authorized representatives.
