Capitalized terms not defined in these Terms of Use shall have the meaning set forth in our Privacy Policy.

 

THE SECTIONS BELOW TITLED “ARBITRATION AGREEMENT” AND “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THEM.

 

1. No Medical Advice

 

You acknowledge and agree that we do not provide any form of medical care, medical opinion, medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment, and that we do not evaluate the need to seek medical attention through the Website, the Services or otherwise. The Website, the Services, the Content and the Contributions (as defined below) are for informational purposes only, and are not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. You should not use the information on the Website or the Services for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease, or prescribing any medication or other treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider before taking any medication or nutritional, herbal or homeopathic product and with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the Website, the Services and/or the Content. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. Reliance on the Website, the Services, the Content and Contributions is solely at your own risk. Information provided on the Website and the Services (including the Content and Contributions), and the use of any products or services purchased from our Website by you does not create a doctor-patient relationship between you and any of the health professionals affiliated with our Website or the Services. Information and statements regarding our products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.  

 

We do not endorse manufacturers’ or others’ claims about the efficacy, potency or ingredients of the products. No information conveyed by us either orally or in writing shall create any warranty or representation of any kind.

 

2. Legal Matters

 

We operate in the cannabis industry, specifically as it relates to hemp-derived full spectrum oil, and our products contain cannabidiol (“CBD”) and trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”).  Any change in current federal or state statutes, regulation or enforcement, or current federal or state statutes, regulation or enforcement may have a material adverse effect on our ability to offer, distribute and sell, and your ability to purchase, possess, resell, consume or use, our products.  You acknowledge that we do not provide any form of legal advice or opinion whatsoever, through the Website, the Services or otherwise, with respect to the legality of the purchase, distribution, possession, use or consumption of the products by you or a third party.  The Website, the Services and the Content are for informational and entertainment purposes only, and are not a substitute for professional legal advice.  

 

Products containing CBD are regulated by Federal law as well as laws of the applicable states.  The Food and Drug Administration has taken a position that CBD derived from marijuana is against the law, and that CBD may not be added to foods, beverages or supplements, with limited exceptions such as a prescription medication for a rare form of epileptic seizures.  The Drug Enforcement Agency has also stated that CBD derived from marijuana remains against the law, subject to the same exception for the epileptic seizure drug.  Similarly, for example, the California Department of Public Health’s Food and Drug Branch has expressed its view that any CBD products, including CBD oil derived from industrial hemp, are not allowed in foods and beverages.  Several other states have also taken this stance.  There is great uncertainty in this area of the law, both in terms of interpretation and enforcement, and you are urged to contact your legal counsel for guidance.  You agree and acknowledge that you will not rely on any information in the Website, the Services, the Content or the Contributions for the purposes of compliance with applicable laws.

19. Arbitration Agreement

In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement, the Services, the Content or the Contribution or any other products or services provided by us (each, a “Dispute”), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party.

 

IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.

 

All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website http://www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in [Charlotte, NC] or another location mutually acceptable to the parties. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect our proprietary interests.

 

20. Class Action Waiver

 

You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS CUSTOMER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

 

21. Miscellaneous

 

This Agreement is governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of [North Carolina], without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. If this Agreement is terminated in accordance with the termination provision above, such termination shall not affect the validity of the following provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect: “Subscription Process, Renewal and Cancellation,” “Billing and Payments,” “Disclaimers,” “Communications with Us,” “No Warranties; Limitation of Liability,” “Indemnification,” “Termination of the Agreement,” “Arbitration Agreement,” “Class Action Waiver,” and “Miscellaneous.”

 

If legal action is necessary to collect fees or charges due from you, then you will reimburse us for all expenses incurred in collecting the fees and charges, including all attorney fees and other legal expenses.

 

Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
