Terms
of
Service

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in MUTHA! We appreciate you reviewing and following these guidelines so that we can continue to be your source for clean, natural, and effective personal care products. These terms of service (“Terms”) are between you and Hope Organics LLC (d/b/a MUTHA) (“MUTHA,” “we,” “our,” or “us”), and establish the terms that apply to you when you use the Service (as defined below).
BY USING THE SERVICE OR BY CLICKING “I AGREE” YOU INDICATE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND YOUR AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS. YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS. We are constantly improving the Service, so these Terms may need to change as we do. We can change these Terms at any time, and if we do, we will make reasonable efforts to provide you with prior notice of any material changes. Your continued use of the Service after any change to these Terms means that you accept the new version. You should consult these Terms each time you access the Service to view any changes. These Terms were last modified on the date indicated above.
AS DESCRIBED BELOW, THESE TERMS PROVIDE FOR THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, AND LIMIT THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN A DISPUTE.

    1. Prices and descriptions for Products are subject to change without notice. We do not guarantee that the description (including Product weight, color, pricing, and other specifications) will be accurate, complete, reliable, current, or free of errors (each, an “Error”). In the event of an Error, whether on the Site, in an order confirmation, in processing an order, delivering a Product, or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct such Error and revise your order accordingly if necessary (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. Further, MUTHA is under no obligation to accept or fulfill an order for a Product that was advertised at an incorrect price, and we may reject or cancel those orders. We may limit the sales of Products to any person, geographic region, or jurisdiction. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. We may limit the quantities of any Products that we offer, and may discontinue any Product without notice. We do not warrant that the quality of any Products you purchase will meet your expectations. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our Products. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color will be accurate. We may refuse any order you place with us. If we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the email, billing address, or phone number you provide.

Except as expressly described in these Terms, no ownership rights in the User Content are transferred to MUTHA by these Terms.
    2. License to MUTHA. By sending us User Content or by posting or publishing it to the Service, you grant MUTHA and its designees a worldwide, non-exclusive, sublicenseable (through multiple tiers), assignable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right to use, reproduce, distribute (through multiple tiers), create derivative works of, publish, publicly display, and use such User Content in any media now known or hereafter developed, to provide the Service to you and other Users and to enhance and develop the Service, including by marketing and advertising the Service, without compensation to you.

    1. Payment. All prices are in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise indicated. Certain Products and services may be purchased with one-time fees, while others may be offered on a subscription basis, and may provide you the option to activate recurring automatic payments for recurring fees. Before you pay any fees, including before activating or updating any recurring payments, you will have an opportunity to review the fees that you will be charged before you accept them. If you activate or update recurring payments through the Service, you authorize MUTHA or its third-party service providers to periodically charge, until cancellation, all accrued sums. The total cost charged to your payment method for each subscription order will be the price of the Product on the Site at the time your order is processed, less any subscription discount also posted on the Site at the time your order is processed, plus any applicable shipping charges and sales tax. Recurring subscriptions automatically renew unless they are cancelled via a method described in the Service at least 24 hours before the next scheduled shipment date. At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to change subscription benefits at any time, including price, discount amounts, shipping charges and eligibility used to determine discount amounts. We reserve the right to terminate your subscription(s) at any time. If we do so, you will only be charged for orders already processed. All changes will apply to future orders, including for current subscriptions.
    2. Payment Processing. Payment processing services for MUTHA may be provided by our third-party payment processors, which may include Stripe Inc. (“Stripe”). Stripe uses your credit card to make payments. The processing of credit card charges or credits, as applicable, relating to your use of the Service will be subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). You hereby agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, which may be modified by Stripe from time to time as set forth therein. As a condition of MUTHA enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide MUTHA with current, accurate, and complete information about you and your payment methods (billing address, credit card number, expiration date, etc.), and you authorize MUTHA to share this information with Stripe, as well as transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by MUTHA.

  2. Optional Third-Party Services. MUTHA and third parties may make available integrations between the Service and third-party products or services, including plugins and related services (“Third-Party Services”) that you may elect to use. Any use by you of such Third-Party Services is solely between you and the applicable Third-Party Service provider. Because the Third-Party Services rely on the Third-Party Service provider’s continued operation, we provide access to such Third-Party Services “as is” and “as available” without any warranties or representations and without any endorsement.

  6. Term and Termination.
    1. Term. The term of these Terms will commence on the date on which you first access or use the Service and will continue as long as you continue until terminated.
    2. Termination. You may terminate these Terms at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use the Service, or when you cease using the Site. If you breach (or if MUTHA suspects you have breached) these Terms, MUTHA may, in its sole discretion, terminate these Terms and your User account and/or limit, suspend, or terminate your access to the Service, with or without notice.
    3. Effect of Termination. Upon termination of these Terms, you remain obligated to pay any outstanding fees relating to your use of the Service that were incurred prior to termination. The following Sections of these Terms will survive termination of these Terms: A, 2, 4-9, 11.C, and 12-21. MUTHA’s termination of these Terms is without prejudice to any other remedies it may have at law or in equity, and does not relieve you of liability for breaches occurring prior to the effective date of termination. MUTHA will not be liable to you for damages arising solely as a result of terminating these Terms.
    4. Deactivation. MUTHA may, without notice to you: (1) restrict, deactivate, or terminate your access to the Service (or any portion); or (2) terminate or modify the Service (or any portion). MUTHA will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of or modification to the Service regardless of the reason for such termination or modification.

  7. Representations and Warranties; Disclaimer.

    2. DISCLAIMER. MUTHA MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE, PRODUCTS, THIRD-PARTY SERVICES, OR OTHERWISE, AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED AND STATUTORY WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS, MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, ACCURACY, TITLE, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “WHERE IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. MUTHA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE, PRODUCTS, OR THIRD-PARTY SERVICES WILL SATISFY YOUR REQUIREMENTS, ARE WITHOUT DEFECT OR ERROR, OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICE, PRODUCTS, OR THIRD-PARTY SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED. Some jurisdictions may limit or prohibit warranty disclaimers, and this SectionB will apply solely to the extent permitted under applicable law.
  8. Indemnification.
    1. Defense. At MUTHA’s option and request, you will defend MUTHA, its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, and contractors (the “MUTHA Parties”) from any actual or threatened third-party claim, proceeding, or suit arising out of or based on: (1) your breach of any representation, warranty, or covenant in these Terms; (2) your violation of applicable law or any third-party intellectual property, proprietary, or privacy right; (3) any dispute between you and any other User or any third party; or (4) your use of the Service in a manner not authorized under these Terms (each, a “Claim”). If MUTHA requests you to defend a MUTHA Party from any Claim, MUTHA will: (a) give you prompt written notice of the Claim; (b) grant you full and complete control over the defense and settlement of the Claim; (c) provide assistance in connection with the defense and settlement of the Claim as you may reasonably request; and (d) comply with any settlement or court order made in connection with the Claim. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, you may not enter into any settlement that involves an admission of guilt or liability of a MUTHA Party without MUTHA’s prior written consent. MUTHA may participate in the defense of a Claim at its own expense and with counsel of its own choosing.
    2. Indemnification. You will indemnify the MUTHA Parties from and pay: (1) all damages, costs, and attorneys’ fees finally awarded against a MUTHA Party in any Claim; (2) all out-of-pocket costs (including attorneys’ fees) reasonably incurred by a MUTHA Party in connection with the defense of a Claim; and (3) all amounts that you agree to pay to any third party to settle any Claim.
  9. Limitation of Liability.
    1. EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER MUTHA NOR ANY MUTHA PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF SAVINGS, OR LOSS OF DATA, EVEN IF MUTHA IS APPRISED OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES OCCURRING. MUTHA SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, LIABILITY, OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF YOUR RECEIPT OF THE PRODUCTS, OR ANY THIRD-PARTY SERVICES.
    2. DAMAGES CAP. MUTHA’S TOTAL LIABILITY OF ALL KINDS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING WARRANTY CLAIMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORUM AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY ACTION OR CLAIM IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF: (1) THE AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY YOU TO MUTHA DURING THE SIX MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE CLAIM (DETERMINED AS OF THE DATE OF ANY FINAL JUDGMENT IN AN ACTION); OR (2) $100.
    3. BASIS OF THE BARGAIN. EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 14 WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
    1. Generally. If you are not a resident of the United States, this Section 15 (Arbitration) will only apply to you to the extent applicable law in your country of residence permits. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and MUTHA in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and MUTHA agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms or your use of the Service, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the expiration or termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND MUTHA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTION. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT THIS SECTION 15 WILL APPLY TO YOU AND MUTHA UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO OPT OUT PURSUANT TO SECTION 15.J (OPT OUT).
Whether to agree to arbitration is an important decision. It is your decision to make, and you should not rely solely on the information provided in these Terms, as they are not intended to contain a complete explanation of the consequences of arbitration. You should take further steps to conduct research and to consult with others, including an attorney, regarding the consequences of your decision, just as you would when making any other important business or life decision.
  1. Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 15.A (Generally), nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (1) bring an individual action in small claims court; (2) bring an action in a court pursuant to the California Private Attorneys General Act of 2004, California Labor Code § 2698 et seq.; (3) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (4) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
  2. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and MUTHA will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting MUTHA. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
  3. Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party within the applicable statute of limitations period (“Notice”). MUTHA’s email address for Notice is legal@mutha.com. The Notice must: (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; (2) set forth the specific relief sought; and (3) if you are sending the Notice to MUTHA, include your name and address (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 45 days after the Notice is received, you or MUTHA may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or MUTHA must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, MUTHA will pay you the highest of the following: (a) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (b) the last written settlement amount offered by MUTHA in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (c) $1,000.
  4. Fees; Location; Language. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, MUTHA will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Bridgeport, CT but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (2) through a non-appearance-based telephone hearing; or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse MUTHA for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. The language of the arbitration shall be English, unless you do not speak English, in which case the arbitration shall be conducted in both English and your native language. 
  5. The parties agree to keep confidential the existence of the arbitration, the arbitral proceedings, the submissions made by the parties, and the decisions made by the arbitrator, including its awards, except as required by applicable law and to the extent not already in the public domain.
  6. No Class Actions. YOU AND MUTHA AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (OTHER THAN ACTIONS UNDER THE CALIFORNIA PRIVATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL ACT OF 2004, CALIFORNIA LABOR CODE § 2698 ET SEQ., WHICH ARE NOT COVERED BY THIS SECTION 15 (ARBITRATION)). Unless both you and MUTHA agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
  7. Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If MUTHA makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to MUTHA’s address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to MUTHA’s address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and MUTHA. If you do not send such written notice, your continued use of the Service following any such change means that you have consented to such change.
  8. Enforceability. If Section 15.G (No Class Actions) is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 15 (Arbitration) is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 15 will be null and void and the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 19 (General) will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Service.
  9. Opt Out. Arbitration is not a mandatory condition of these Terms.

  2. Protected Activity Not Prohibited. Nothing in these Terms limit or prohibit you from filing a charge or complaint with, or otherwise communicating or cooperating with or participating in, any investigation or proceeding that may be conducted by any international, federal, state, provincial, or local government agency or commission (“Protected Activity”).

  4. General. These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and MUTHA and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and MUTHA with respect to the Service. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third party services, third party content or third party software. These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to these Terms. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and MUTHA agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within New York, NY. In any proceeding to enforce rights under these Terms, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees. If you breach Sections 2 (Accounts; Registration; Restrictions), 7 (Ownership), or 8 (Confidentiality), MUTHA may suffer irreparable harm, and monetary damages may be inadequate to compensate MUTHA. Accordingly, MUTHA may, in addition to any other remedies available, seek injunctive or other equitable relief in response to any such breach. The failure of MUTHA to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign these Terms without the prior written consent of MUTHA, but MUTHA may assign or transfer these Terms, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service.

As a User, YOU ACT EXCLUSIVELY ON YOUR OWN BEHALF AND FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT, AND NOT ON BEHALF OF OR FOR THE BENEFIT OF MUTHA.
