Last Modified: 03/30/2020

This agreement contains a mandatory individual arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions.

You may opt out of receiving communications by following the unsubscribe procedures we provide to you or by emailing email@example.com – you acknowledge that opting out of receiving communications may impact your use of the Services or Products.
(f) Limited Warranties. The following are the limited warranties Pureguards provides in connection with Product Trials. Pureguards’ liability to you for failure to comply with any of these warranties is limited to timely delivery of Product.
(i) Correct Trial Products. Subject to availability, we will deliver the Products you ordered for Trial, disregarding colors or memory size variants, on the delivery date and timeslot for which you ordered them, except in the rare event that your reserved Trial Product is damaged beyond repair or there is an occurrence subsequent to the placing of the order that prevents timely delivery. In such event, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you that the Product is unavailable. If we are able to reach you, you will be entitled to choose another day and timeslot or another Product to replace the unavailable Product. If we are unable to reach you, you acknowledge and agree that we will cancel your order.
(ii) Clean and Ready to Use. The Products will be professionally cleaned and delivered ready to use. Pureguards cleans and inspects each Product with the utmost care, but use of the Product is at your own risk and Pureguards shall not be held liable for any health-related complaints associated with any Product.
4.2 Product Trials.
(a) Delivery. As part of your Service subscription, you are eligible to try Products in-home in accordance with this Section 4.2 (“Trial”). Once you have selected a Product to try through our Service, we will do our best to deliver the Product on your chosen day and timeslot. Upon delivery, you will be asked to show a valid form of ID and sign a proof of delivery. You agree to bear responsibility for the receipt of Products shipped to the location specified at time of check out as well as upon receipt of the Product. You acknowledge that there may be delivery delays, and you will pay for any delivery charges incurred due to issues with delivery at your delivery address.
(b) Use of the Product. You agree to treat the Product with great care, as if it was borrowed from your close friend. You are responsible for loss, destruction or damage to the Products and its accessories due to theft, mysterious disappearance, fire, major stains or any other cause, other than normal wear and tear. Normal wear and tear encompasses minor stains and scratches. If you return a Product that is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, then you agree that we shall charge you, and you shall pay, for the price for repairing or replacing the Product or its accessories, as determined in our discretion, up to the full retail value for the Product.
(c) Return Pickup. You agree to return the Product and its accessories to Pureguards in the same condition and packaging you received it and on or before the last day of your Trial as identified in the order confirmation email. To return the product, simply log into your account and schedule a return pickup by specifying your desired address, date and timeslot. You can schedule the return pickup of your Product at any time during your Trial and latest by 18:00 local time the day prior to the last day of the Trial. We are not responsible for any personal or other items left in the Product or which are returned to Pureguards. If you believe you have accidentally or otherwise sent us any such items, please contact Customer Support as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff may assist in attempting to locate such items at a customer’s request, but are not obligated to and assume no liability for doing so.
(d) Late Fees. You are not entitled to extend your Trial beyond its end date; if you return the Product late or not at all, you will be charged a late fee of twenty dollars ($20) for every day that you are late returning the Product, and you agree to pay such late fees until the product has been successfully picked up from you. You may however apply 50% of such fees to any subsequent purchase of the Product through the Service. If you have not returned the Product within five (5) days after the Trial’s end date, your late return will be considered a non-return and Pureguards will charge you an amount equal to the full Product retail value plus the Late Fees. All of these fees will be charged to the payment card you used to order your Trial or to any other payment card included in your account information that you have provided to Pureguards.
(e) Payment of 100% Retail Value. Pureguards will not charge you for more than an amount equal to 100% of the retail value plus the late fees described above, in the aggregate, for any charges arising under this Section, excluding collection costs. If you pay Pureguards an amount equal to 100% of the retail value under this Section and you still possess the Product, the Product is yours to keep, though on an “AS IS” basis without warranty of any kind. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations of this clause shall not apply to the Late Fees, which are charged separately from, and in addition to, any other charges payable by you pursuant to this Section.
4.3 Product Purchases
(a) Swap. When you desire to purchase a Product following a Trial, we will come swap your Trial Product with a brand new Product, and you can schedule this “Swap“ directly from your user account chosing your preferred date and timeslot.
(b) Purchase of Trial Products. Trial Products are generally not destined for sales but some exceptions may apply and you should contact Customer Support if you‘d like to purchase the Product you are trying.
(c) Payment. If you decide to purchase any Products from the Pureguards Service, you acknowledge and agree that your payments are made directly to the third-party brand offering the Product, and not Pureguards, via an API that connects your account and payment information to the relevant brand’s third party payment provider. Notwithstanding the above, payments for certain Products in New York will be made directly to Pureguards as agent for the third-party brand offering the Product. Purchase price is as listed on Pureguards’s website at the time of purchase, and is subject to change. Pureguards reserves the right to alter purchase price, discount, or availability of any particular item at its discretion and without notice. Upon your purchase order for a Product, you hereby authorize Pureguards or the relevant third-party brand to charge your payment card for the applicable purchase price. Your payment card will be charged the amount of the purchase price immediately upon your purchase order. Purchase prices exclude all federal, state and local taxes, GST, fees, customs, duties, levies and other governmental assessments, all of which shall be paid by you directly or, if paid by Pureguards, shall be paid by you to Pureguards in connection with your purchase order.
(d) Returns and Warranties. You also acknowledge and agree that the relevant third-party brand is solely responsible for (a) providing a product warranty directly to you with respect to the Products purchased via the Pureguards Service and (b) processing returns from you in accordance with brand’s terms and conditions and any applicable laws, rules and regulations.

9. DISCLAIMER OF THIRD-PARTY LINKS AND PRODUCTS
Further, Pureguards does not make any representation, warranty or guarantee regarding the Products purchased on or through the Service.

Pureguards makes no representation or warranty as to the quality or qualification of any product of any third party, and is not responsible or liable for any acts or omissions committed by such third parties.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Pureguards and its subsidiaries, agents, licensors, managers, and other affiliated companies, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy or Intellectual Property Rights; (iv) your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (v) User Content including without limitation misleading, false, or inaccurate information; (vi) your willful misconduct; or (vii) any other party’s access and use of the Service with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code.

Federal law, some states, provinces and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion and limitations of certain implied warranties, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers and exclusions under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Pureguards, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers or licensors be liable for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, arising out of or relating to the use of, or inability to use, the Service.

This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if Pureguards has been advised of the possibility of such damage.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
13. GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER
13.1 Governing Law.
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Francisco, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that San Francisco County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Pureguards. For any dispute with Pureguards, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Pureguards has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Los Angeles, California, unless you and Pureguards agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Pureguards from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
13.3 Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver.
With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, all Claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s Claims. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Pureguards are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
