We, Labs, Practices and/or Providers will endeavor to provide notice of such limitations when using those parts of the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at all times Practitioners exercise their independent clinical judgement in furnishing Services to individuals. Accordingly, Practitioners delivering services may on a case-by-case basis determine that additional criteria may apply in the case of specific individuals or that certain services are not appropriate in any individual instance for a particular user. In addition to the above requirements, we, Labs, Practices and their Practitioners reserve the right to change or include new requirements as deemed appropriate in their sole discretion without providing prior notice to you.
We are based in the United States. We provide the Platform and our Services for use only by individuals located in the United States.

5. SERVICES AND PRODUCTS ACCESSED ON THE PLATFORM
This Section 5 describes the Services and Products that may be accessed or purchased on the Platform. Please read them carefully before accessing or purchasing any Service or Product. All purchases of Services or Products are subject to the provisions of Section 6 (Purchases, Shipping and Payment Methods), except as and to the extent expressly modified by the terms in this Section 5 applicable to specific Services or Products.
A. Health and Wellness Information; Not Healthcare or Medical Advice
The contents of the Platform, such as text, graphics, images, and other materials created by us or obtained from our licensors, including from users of the Platform who share their health and wellness experiences (collectively, "Content") are for informational purposes only. Although some Content may include health- or medical-related information, or online tools to calculate general health and wellness metrics, all such Content is provided for general informational purposes only. We do not directly or indirectly practice medicine, render medical advice, or dispense medical services via our Content or otherwise, and you should not use the Content on the Platform for the diagnosis or treatment of any health issue or for prescription of any medication or other treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health professional with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition, and never disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking treatment based on any Content or other information included in the Platform. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your healthcare professional or your local emergency number (usually 911) immediately.
B. Laboratory Testing Services
The Platform enables you to purchase laboratory testing Services (" Test Services"), as well as access to Test Services you may have purchased or received at a physical or other online location. Except as expressly indicated in the Test Services, Product or Panel description information or packaging materials, all Test Services are intended for information purposes and monitoring, informational and educational use, and are not intended to diagnose or treat disease. Carefully review this Section 5(B) and description page for any Test Services you select prior to purchasing your Test Services.
i. Ordering Test Services
In order to access Test Services purchased on the Platform or at a retail or other online location, you must as a practitioner or patient, set up an Account and may be required to submit additional information to deliver collection kits to you and potentially determine whether you satisfy applicable Eligibility Criteria. In order for the Lab to process your request as a patient for Test Services, you must submit applicable information necessary to enable a Practitioner (" Reviewing Practitioner") to assess whether the Test Service is appropriate for you. A practitioner may order Test Services for their patients as they see medically necessary for Research Use Only. Test Services will not be provided to you as a patient if the Reviewing Practitioner does not authorize your request and order the applicable Test Services. In the event that a Reviewing Practitioner does not ultimately authorize a Test Service, we will refund the applicable fees you paid in respect of said Test
ii. Submitting Samples using Collection Kits
Our at-home Test Services require you to access the collection kit (" Collection Kit")
that you purchased on the Platform or at a retail or other online location. Please read carefully all of the notices and instructions (" Instructions") included in the Collection Kit. You must then (a) collect all biological samples (e.g., blood, saliva, or urine, or other "Samples") in accordance with the Instructions, and (b) send the Sample(s) directly to the Lab set forth in the Instructions or otherwise indicated on the Platform. If you do not provide an adequate Sample or utilize the Collection Kit, or provide it in a manner that is contraindicated or not consistent with any Instructions, or do not return the Sample within the timeframe set forth in the Instructions, the Lab may not be able to process your Sample or such action may result in inaccurate and unreliable readings of the Sample. In the event the Lab determines that a Sample is not suitable for testing due to the content of the Sample or because the Sample may have been submitted in contravention of the Instructions or these Terms and Conditions, we and the Lab reserve the right to withhold the Test Results (defined below) and to not provide a refund.
By sending us a Sample, you are thereby (a) consenting to undergo the related Test Services, (b) and re-affirming to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and Additional Terms and Conditions, (c) representing and warranting that you have read all relevant Instructions and packaging materials provided with the Collection Kit, and authorizing us to transmit your personal information to the Reviewing Practitioner, the Lab,
other health providers you identify, third-party payors and their respective business associates and subcontractors, as described in these Terms and Conditions. If you are unsure or if you require any further information, you agree to contact us or a licensed healthcare professional for further information.
iii. Test Results
If your Sample is successfully processed by the relevant Lab, the results of the Test Services (" Test Results") will be made available to the Reviewing Practitioner, who will release the Test Results to us, who will make them available to you in your Account on the Platform. Practitioners will have access through their account to review and release results to their patients. Except as expressly indicated in the Test Service's packaging or Platform description information, all Test Services are intended for Research Use Only, informational, educational and wellness purposes only. Accordingly, whether or not the Lab performing the Test Services indicates in the Test Results that said results are "positive," "reactive," "detected," "elevated" or any other indication, the Test Results are not intended to diagnose or treat a disease or condition. Furthermore, due to the nature of the Test Services, neither we nor the Lab warrant that the Test Results will be entirely or 100% accurate. Inaccuracies can arise from a number of factors. For example, certain infections, such as sexually transmitted infections, may remain undetectable for an extended period of time due to varying incubation periods. Additionally, there can be instances of "false-positive" and "false-negative" test results, resulting, for example, in an individual who has a specified condition or biomarker receiving a "false-negative" Test Result. Accordingly, if you have a "positive," "reactive," "detected," or "elevated" Test Result, or have concerns about your Test Results, you will need a further confirmatory diagnostic test. If you require any further information, you agree to contact us or a licensed healthcare professional for further information.
iv. Clinician Oversight
In order for a Lab to process your request for Test Services, you as a patient must submit applicable information necessary to enable the Reviewing Practitioner to assess whether the Test Services are appropriate for you, and will review the Test Results if and when furnished by the Lab. You understand and agree that as to certain Tests offered through the Platform you do not necessarily establish a provider-patient relationship with the Reviewing Provider simply as a result of your purchase or use of the Test Services.
If you receive a laboratory test result with a value that is outside the normal range, as determined by the Lab performing the Test Services (an " Abnormal Result"), a care coordination team member will attempt to reach out to you at the phone number you provided when ordering the Test Services, to review the Test Results with you, offer education and discuss options. The coordination team may leave you a voicemail, or mail a letter to the residential address you indicated in your Account profile, but such communication will not include your Test Results in any voicemail message. An educational or other consult may also be available upon request with a Practitioner to discuss the Test Results. Except as set forth in Section 5(B)(v) below, the Practitioner will neither initiate treatment nor prescribe any medication or device, but rather will direct you to follow-up with your regular healthcare practitioner or primary care physician. If you receive an Abnormal Result and have not connected with the coordination
team, you should not delay following up with your personal physician.
v. Telehealth Consults
As may be indicated in their accompanying product description or packaging materials, certain Test Services ("Treatment-Eligible Test Services") include the cost of you receiving a telehealth consult from a Practitioner (a "Telehealth Consult") through the use of synchronous and asynchronous telecommunication technologies. The term "telehealth" involves the delivery of health care services using electronic communications, information technology, or other means between a Practitioner and a patient who are not in the same physical location. Telehealth may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and/or related patient education. These telehealth services may involve various modalities, including asynchronous interactions, real-time video and audio encounters and interactive audio with store and forward. In the case of a Telehealth Consult, the Practitioner will review available Test Results from any Treatment-Eligible Test Services to determine the scope of services for diagnosis, treatment, and care, including prescribing appropriate medications or tests.
In the event that a Practitioner prescribes a medication to you, you give us and the Practitioner consent to send and disclose to the pharmacy of your choice and other health providers you identify and request to receive all information provided by you, health care records, and other applicable health care information and personal information.
vi. Payment Terms for Test Services and Associated Clinical Oversight and Telehealth Consults
We collect payment for the Test Services on behalf of the Labs, and for the related Clinician Oversight and Telehealth Consults on behalf of Practices, as their respective collection agents. You will be notified of the fees for such services on the Platform, but the fees for all said Services will be included, as possible, in a single charge at the
time you purchase the Test Services (the " Aggregate Fee").
The Test Services and related Clinician Oversight and Telehealth Consults are paid for by you and are not intended to be reimbursed by any health plan. Neither we, the Lab nor a Practice or Practitioner submits or processes insurance paperwork or claims for any of
these services. You may request that we, Lab or Practice provide you with a detailed accounting of the Services provided to you. This information may enable you to obtain reimbursement for some of your out-of-pocket expenses from your health insurer or heath saving account program. However, the terms and conditions of coverage for Test Services, Clinician Oversight and Telehealth Consults vary by plan, and some or none of these Services may be eligible for coverage or expense reimbursement. By purchasing these Services, you understand and agree that you are the sole party responsible for paying all fees associated with them. Practitioners will be charged for each test ordered for one of their patients and will be responsible for payment at the time of ordering the test.
In the event that a Practitioner prescribes a medication to you, your Aggregate Fee will _ not _ include the cost of medication.
vii. Additional Terms and Conditions
Prior to scheduling a Telehealth Consult, you will be required to agree and enter into, or acknowledge receipt of Additional Terms and Conditions furnished by Practice, including the Notice of Privacy Practices.
C. On-Demand Telehealth Services
i. Scheduling and Obtaining Telehealth-Only Consults
The Platform may allow you to request, schedule and obtain certain identified telehealth consults from Practitioners independent of Test Services as described from time to time on the Platform ("Telehealth-Only Consults") through the use of synchronous and asynchronous telecommunication technologies. The Practitioner conducting the Telehealth-Only Consult will determine the scope of services for diagnosis, treatment, and care, including prescribing appropriate medications or tests consistent with the types of conditions and clinical offerings described on the Platform for such Telehealth-Only Consults.
ii. Payment Terms for Telehealth-Only Consults
Except as otherwise indicated in the Additional Terms and Conditions, fees for Telehealth-Only Consults will be collected by Practices or their designated collection agent.
Depending on your health insurance plan and the Practice performing the Telehealth-Only Consult, Practice may be able to bill some portion of your Telehealth-Only Consults to your insurance, and Practice may seek to obtain information pertaining to your health insurance during the scheduling or intake process. If Practice is able to bill your insurance directly, your insurance will be billed for the services, net of any copayment, deductible or other patient responsibility payments ("Patient Responsibility Amounts"), which you will be required to pay Practice. You will also be responsible for "no show" charges that the provider may charge you (" No Show Charges") as set forth in Practice's policies in the event that you do not appear for a scheduled appointment or cancel a scheduled appointment with less than three (3) hours' notice.
By providing payment method information to us, Practice, or Practice's designated representative, you are expressly agreeing that such party is authorized to charge to the payment method you provide to them for any fees for your use of the Telehealth-Only Consults, together with any applicable taxes. Please note that Practice may not receive complete information from your health insurance plan, if applicable, regarding the applicable copay due from you for your consultation. As such, you may be billed more than once with respect to a consultation to account for additional copay amounts due, if any. Should you choose not to enter your health plan billing details, you elect to be seen as self-pay, thereby waiving health plan claim submission. You certify that you are an authorized user of the payment method and will not dispute charges for the Telehealth-Only Consults that correspond to fees for the Telehealth-Only Consult or the co-payment required by your health plan.
Practice does not accept all health insurance plans. In such cases, Practice does not submit or process insurance paperwork or claims. You may request that Practice provide you with a detailed accounting of the Telehealth-Only Consult provided to you, which may enable you to obtain reimbursement for your out-of-pocket expenses from your health insurer or health savings account program. However, the terms and conditions of coverage for Telehealth-Only Consults vary by plan, and such Services may not be eligible for coverage or expense reimbursement. By purchasing Telehealth-Only Consults, you acknowledge and agree that you are the sole party responsible for paying all fees associated with the Telehealth-Only Consults, including any fees charged by Practice.
During the Telehealth-Only Consult, the Practitioner may prescribe or order a medication or lab test. The cost of such medications or lab services are not included in the charges for the Telehealth-Only Consult.
iii. Care Bundles
To support individuals with specified care goals, the Platform may allow individuals to request, schedule and obtain a series of bundled health encounters involving, depending on the associated Additional Terms and Conditions, health evaluation, ordering of Test Services or Products, review of patient data, patient education and counseling, and prescribing activities, each as appropriate and contingent upon on-going patient eligibility in the offering as determined on an individual basis by a Practitioner (each such package, a " Care Bundle").
The specific Services and Products included in a Care Bundle may be described in Additional Terms and Conditions. Any service or product that is not expressly identified as included in a Care Bundle shall not be included in the bundle (all such services and products not expressly identified as included in a Care Bundle, an " Excluded Service or Product"). Accordingly, you will be responsible for paying for any Excluded Service or Product utilized in conjunction with the Care Bundle, including if utilization of the Excluded Service or Product is either (a) required for determining eligibility of participation in the Care Bundle, (b) a component of the Care Bundle, or (c) is otherwise prescribed or ordered by the treating Practitioner.
iv. Payment Terms for Care Bundles
Except as otherwise indicated in Additional Terms and Conditions, fees for Care Bundles will be collected by us, on behalf of Practice, as the Practice's collection agent.
For each Care Bundle, you agree to pay up-front fees to cover access to all aspects of the Care Bundle regardless of whether or not you elect to complete all components included in the Care Bundle or receive a prescription for a medication by the treating Practitioner. Accordingly, you agree and acknowledge that no refunds are available after purchasing a Care Bundle and no prescriptions are guaranteed.
You understand and agree that you are responsible for paying all fees associated with Care Bundles, including any fees charged by the treating Practices and Practitioners for professional services. Although some health insurance plans may offer coverage for certain clinical services, the Practices and Practitioners rendering clinical services included in Care Bundles may not have contracted with any health insurance plans to qualify those specific services for coverage under any specific insurance plan. Accordingly, by purchasing a Care Bundle, you understand and agree that (a) any and all clinical services rendered by the Practice and Practitioners may not be eligible for coverage or expense reimbursement by your insurance plan or health savings account program, and (b) you are wholly responsible for paying all fees associated with all purchased Care Bundles, including any fees charged by the treating Practice and Practitioners.
Federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, do not pay for everything, even some health care services and products that you or your health care provider have good reason to think you need. If you are a beneficiary of a federal or state health care program, and such program does not pay for certain services or products rendered to you, you may have to pay for these services and products. As we understand it, neither federal nor state health care programs currently pay for any of the clinical services or products made available through the Care Bundles, at least not in the way such services or products are provided (i.e., using telehealth and bundled treatment offerings). By agreeing to use the Care Bundles, you acknowledge and agree that (1) you will pay directly for the medical services and products (if any) provided to you, and (2) neither us, the Practice, the Practitioners, or you will bill any federal or state health care program for such services or products.
During the Care Bundles, a Practitioner may prescribe or order a medication or lab test. Except as expressly included in the Care described in the Additional Terms and Conditions, the cost of such medications or tests are not included in the charges for the Care Bundle.
v. Additional Terms and Conditions
Prior to scheduling aa Telehealth-Only Consult or purchasing a Care Bundle, you may be required to agree and enter into, or acknowledge receipt of Additional Terms and Conditions furnished by Practice, including a Telehealth Consent and Notice of Privacy Practices, or by us.
In the event that a Practitioner orders or prescribes a medication or lab test to you, or you authorize Practice to submit
a claim for reimbursement to your insurance carrier, you give us and Practice consent to send and disclose to the pharmacy or lab of your choice or your
insurance carrier or identified health provider you request receive certain information, as the case may be, all information provided by you, health care
records, and other applicable health care information and personal information
to the applicable third party and their respective business associates and subcontractors.
D. Subscription-Based Membership Programs
i. Program Elements of Care Membership Programs
To support individuals with specified care needs and longer-term health care goals, the Platform may allow individuals to request, schedule and obtain a series of bundled health encounters and related services or products involving (depending on the associated Additional Terms and Conditions) health evaluation(s), ordering of Test Services or Products, review of patient data, patient education and counseling, prescribing activities, supplements, and vitamins, each as appropriate and contingent upon on-going participant eligibility in the offering (each such program, a "Care Membership Program"). Care Membership Programs are not intended for use in emergencies or by participants with specialized needs that should be treated by appropriate primary specialists. In the case of an emergency or if you are otherwise in crisis, call 911 immediately.
ii. Program Elements and Excluded Services and
As reflected in the applicable Additional Terms and Conditions, Care Membership Programs may include, among other things:
One or more telehealth consults with a Practitioner to determine eligibility (" Eligibility Evaluations") for the specified Care Membership Program, which may include ordering clinical laboratory testing services;

The specific Services and Products included in a Care Membership Program will be described in Additional Terms and Conditions describing the program. Any service or product that is not expressly identified as included in a Care Membership Program shall not be included in the program (all such services
and products not expressly identified as included in a Care Membership Program and Excluded Service or Products. For example, as part of providing a Care Membership Program, a
Practitioner may order lab, imaging and other diagnostic tests, to be conducted at locations outside of the Practices, including clinical laboratories and
testing centers. In addition, Practitioners may prescribe prescriptions for medications
available from third party pharmacies. In each case, neither us nor any
Practice or Practitioner are responsible for any resulting medical bills or the
delivery of such third party services or products. More generally, you will be
responsible for paying (as a separate payment from any costs or fees for the
Care Membership Program) for any Excluded Service or Product utilized in conjunction with the Care Membership Program, including if utilization of the Excluded Service or Product is either (a) required for determining eligibility of participation in the Care Membership Program, (b) a component of the Care Membership Program, or (c) is otherwise prescribed or ordered by the treating Practitioner.
Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, or any Additional Terms and Conditions, a Practitioner may determine that a Care Membership Program is not appropriate for you or all of your treatment needs, and any Practitioner may elect to not provide certain clinical services or otherwise provide the Care Membership Program to you. Your Practitioner reserves the right to deny care for potential misuse of a Care Membership Program or for any other reason including if, in the professional judgment of your Practitioner,
the provision of the Care Membership Program is not medically or ethically appropriate.
iii. Not Insurance.
Membership Program is a direct health care service. Care Membership Programs are not health insurance
or a substitute for health insurance, do not meet any individual health
insurance mandate under federal or state law, and the payments you make in connection with Care Membership Programs are not insurance premiums. You should keep your existing health insurance coverage while you are participating in Care Membership Programs or obtain health insurance coverage if you do not currently have it.
iv. Your Health Insurance; Prior
You understand and agree that you are responsible for paying all fees associated with the Care Membership Program, including any fees charged by the treating Practices and Practitioners for professional services. Accordingly, by purchasing a Care Membership Program, you understand and agree that (a) any and all clinical services rendered by the Practice and Practitioners in a Care Membership Program may not be eligible for coverage or expense reimbursement by your insurance plan or health savings account program, and (b) you are wholly responsible for paying all fees associated with all purchased Care Membership Programs, including any fees charged by the treating Practice and Practitioners. There is no guarantee that your insurance company will make any payment on or otherwise reimburse in any manner any fees or other costs or expenses you incur in connection with a Care Membership Program or any other services you may have purchased.
Federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, do not pay for everything, even some health care services and products that you or your health care provider have good reason to think you need. If you are a beneficiary of a federal or state health care program, and such program does not pay for certain services or products rendered to you, you may have to pay for these services and products. As we understand it, neither federal nor state health care programs currently pay for any of the clinical services or products made available through the Care Bundles, at least not in the way such services or products are provided (i.e., using telehealth and bundled treatment offerings). By agreeing to use the Care Membership Program, you acknowledge and agree that (1) you will pay directly for the medical services and products (if any) provided to you, and (2) neither us, the Practice, the Practitioners, or you will bill any federal or state health care program for such services or products.
To the extent set forth in the Additional Terms and Conditions applicable to a Care Membership Program, the Practices may offer you assistance with benefits
verification and prior authorization for medication, which is ultimately fulfilled by a pharmacy of your choosing. Additionally, the Practices or us may support your application to a pharmaceutical company for a coupon or discount program for you or on your behalf. As may be set forth in the applicable Additional Terms and Conditions, this would require you to consent and authorize the Practice or us to apply for, and take action necessary to complete such application, coupons or discount programs for you or on your
behalf. If you, us or the Practices utilize such coupon or discount program to
reduce the out-of-pocket cost of your medication, then you understand and agree
that you are subject to the terms and conditions of such coupon.
v. Payment Terms.
In light of the longer-term goals associated
with Care Membership Programs, fees for
Care Membership Programs are payable as
a series of fixed monthly or quarterly recurring charges (" Recurring Charges"). Depending on the Additional
Terms and Conditions associated with your Care
Membership Program, Recurring Charges can vary and allocations of such
Recurring Charges may differ by period given the party performing the underlying
Membership Program may also include an initial multi-month commitment
set forth in the associated Additional Terms and Conditions, which are payable
regardless of whether or not you utilize all elements of the Care Membership Program during that period (the
" Commitment Term"). If so, you agree to Recurring
Charges for the duration of the Commitment Term regardless of whether or not
you elect to complete all encounters included in the applicable Care Membership Program or receive a prescription
for a medication by the treating Practitioner. No prescriptions are guaranteed.
Accordingly, except as otherwise set forth in the applicable Additional Terms
and Conditions, you agree and acknowledge that upon purchase of a Care Membership Program, you shall owe an
aggregate sum of all Recurring Charges payable during the Commitment Term
(" Up-Front Commitment").
You will have an opportunity to review and
agree to the cost of a Care Membership
Program prior to purchase during the checkout process. Once purchased, the
Recurring Charge will be charged to your Payment Method (as defined in Section
6) on a recurring, monthly basis until you, we or the Practice terminates the
Care Membership Program. You may
terminate a Care Membership Program at
any time; provided, however, that (a) if you terminate a Care Membership Program prior to the expiration of
the applicable Commitment Term, you authorize us to charge your Payment Method
for the remaining balance of your Up-Front Commitment; and (b) once paid, all
Recurring Charges are non-refundable. See Section 6(E) for further information
on how to cancel a Care Membership
Program or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon termination of a Care Membership Program, you will not be eligible to
receive any Care Membership Program
services, including prescriptions from your Practitioner. We recommend you talk
to your Practitioner before discontinuing treatment as abruptly stopping
certain medications for health conditions can impact your health.
vi. Additional Terms and Conditions
In the event that a Practitioner orders or
prescribes a medication or lab test to you, or you authorize Practice to submit
a claim for reimbursement to your insurance carrier, you give us and Practice
consent to send and disclose to the pharmacy or lab of your choice or your
insurance carrier or identified health provider you request to receive certain
information, as the case may be, all information provided by you, health care
records, and other applicable health care information and personal information

The Platform may enable you to purchase a
variety of health, wellness and lifestyle Products, including, among other
things, dietary supplements, over-the-counter ovulation and pregnancy tests,
energy drink mixes, lab tests, ointments and literature and other related
items. The Products and the claims made about specific Products on or through
the Platform may not have been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug
Administration and may not be intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent
disease. Please consult with your physician or other healthcare professional
regarding any medical or health-related diagnosis or treatment options.
The Platform may enable you to purchase some
Products on a subscription basis that involves making a series of purchases of
eligible Products over a specified frequency, and for which you pay a fixed
periodic charge (a " Product Subscription").
Your Product Subscription will continue and your Payment Method (as defined in
Section 6(E)) will be automatically charged for each successive subscription
period at the then-current advertised percentage discount of the current market price for the applicable Product(s). You authorize us to continue to submit periodic charges (e.g. at the applicable subscription frequency) until you provide prior notice of cancellation or wish to change your Payment Method. Such notice will not affect charges before we could reasonably act.
We reserve the right to adjust Product Subscriptions in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms and Conditions, any changes to your Product Subscription will take effect following 30 days' notice to you via the e-mail you provided at the time you enrolled in the Product Subscription. Sales taxes and other government-imposed fees, however, are not part of the subscription price and may be added or adjusted at any time without notice as required by law. Additional payment
terms applicable to Product Subscriptions are set forth in Section 6 below.
F. Your Use of Medications Prescribed by a Practitioner.
You agree that any prescriptions that you receive from a
Practitioner are solely for your personal use and you will not share or distribute any medication to any other person. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided medication information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist with any questions about your medication.

and Labs, as the case may be and described in the applicable subsection of
Section 5, to collect such amounts on their behalf.
We reserve the right to cancel any order,
any time and for any reason. If your Payment Method has already been charged

account in the amount of the charge. We will not be responsible (i) for any
charges that your Payment Method issuer may apply to you as a result of our
processing your order, (ii) if your Payment Method issuer refuses or fails to
authorize payment by you, or (iii) for any delays or non-delivery of Services or Products that may arise due to any validation checks that may be carried out
regarding your payment or identification.

to notify us of any changes to your Payment Method. You certify that you are an authorized user of the Payment Method and will not dispute charges for the

The decision of the arbitrator shall be made in writing, shall be final, judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction thereof, and the decision shall not be subject to vacation, modification or appeal, except to the extent permitted by sections 10 and 11 of the Federal Arbitration Act, the terms of which sections the Parties agree shall apply.
Other than the exceptions listed herein, the arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity (including attorney's fees) and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the Parties. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives. The arbitrator also does not have the power to vary the class action waiver provisions. The fees charged by the AAA and arbitrator shall be shared equally by the Parties. If, however, you are able to prove that the costs of arbitration will be significantly more prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, Everly Well, Inc. will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. All arbitration proceedings will be confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed to the fullest extent possible under applicable law.
Either party may bring a claim related to intellectual property rights, seek temporary or preliminary specific performance or temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, or seek to bring an individual action in small claims court (provided such claim qualifies to be filed in small claims court), in any court of competent jurisdiction, without the posting of bond or other security). If any term, clause or provision of this Section is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this section will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in this section are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and Conditions and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
23. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
All disputes arising from or relating to these Terms and Conditions and all Disputes arising from or relating to the Platform or the Services (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida regardless of where you access the Platform, and notwithstanding any conflicts of law principles.
24. CLASS ACTION WAIVER
ANY PROCEEDINGS TO ARBITRATE, LITIGATE OR
OTHERWISE RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN
INDIVIDUAL BASIS. NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL SEEK TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A COLLECTIVE OR CLASS ACTION OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OR PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, AND EACH PARTY HEREBY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO ASSERT CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTES SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN THE PARTIES. NO ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING WILL BE COMBINED WITH ANOTHER WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES TO ALL AFFECTED ARBITRATIONS OR
25. LIMITATION OF TIME TO FILE CLAIMS
ANY ACTION, CLAIM OR DISPUTE YOU HAVE AGAINST US MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR, UNLESS PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. THE ONE-YEAR PERIOD BEGINS WHEN THE CLAIM OR NOTICE OF DISPUTE FIRST COULD BE FILED. IF A CLAIM OR DISPUTE IS NOT FILED WITHIN ONE YEAR, IT IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
You agree that we may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to these Terms and Conditions, by e-mail to the address you provide to us. Your on-going use of the Platform after any such notice is deemed acknowledgement of your acceptance of such information, including any Terms and Conditions, as updated.
B. Entire Agreement.
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Platform and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect thereto. No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, on the part of you or us, any right or any power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or power hereunder preclude further exercise of that or any other right hereunder. In n the event of a conflict between these Terms and Conditions and any other terms(aside from any Additional Terms and Conditions duly entered into pursuant to these Terms and Conditions), the terms of these Terms and Conditions shall govern. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, the remainder of the provision will be amended to achieve, as closely as possible, the effect of the original term and all other provisions of these Terms and Conditions will continue in full force and effect. The headings of sections and paragraphs in these Terms and Conditions are for convenience only and shall not affect their interpretation.
We may freely assign these Terms in connection with a merger, reorganization, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise.
