If you do not agree with any aspect of this Agreement, then do not press “Accept,” in which case you may not use the Site or subscribe to the Service.
AMONG OTHER THINGS, THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, WHICH REQUIRES THAT YOU AND THE BECAUSE MARKET ARBITRATE CERTAIN CLAIMS BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF GOING TO COURT AND LIMITS CLASS ACTION CLAIMS.
A few important points:
You may be asked to create an account in order to access certain features of the Site and to subscribe to the Service. In order to create an account, we will ask you to complete a registration form, provide an email address, and create a password (“Account Information”).
When you register for an account with us, the following rules apply:
The Because Market attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, The Because Market does not warrant that descriptions of the Products or other content on the Site or in connection with the Service will always be accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Certain information may contain pricing errors, typographical errors and other errors or inaccuracies, which we may correct without liability. We do not guarantee that the Products described on our Site will be available at all times.
Merchandise purchased from our Site or in connection with a subscription to the Service may be shipped by a third party carrier. As a result, title and risk of loss for such merchandise will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
We strive to protect you and the integrity of the Site and the Service. We may monitor the Site and Service and screen any orders or other transactions for fraud or other types of unauthorized or illegal activity. We reserve the right to refuse to process an order due to suspected fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity. If we suspect fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity, we may reject your order or we may contact you at the phone number or email address you provided to confirm your order. We also reserve the right to cancel any accounts or refuse to ship to certain addresses due to suspected fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity.
**Note: At The Because Market, we charge and ship monthly based on your incontinence needs with differing item quantities in each subscription plan.
By subscribing to the Service and providing or designating a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”), you agree that The Because Market may charge the Payment Method for your subscription at the then-current subscription rate (including any taxes, including local sales tax or VAT, and late fees, as applicable). To the extent you are late in making any payment, The Because Market reserves the right to charge you interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) on all late payments hereunder. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide us with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority. You agree that your Payment Method will automatically be charged by The Because Market (through its payment card processing service provider) on a monthly basis until you cancel your subscription.
We reserve the right to change our fee structure at any time by providing you notice in accordance with these Terms, and the change in fee structure shall apply to the month following the month in which the notice is sent to you. We also reserve the right to initiate special incentive pricing, membership and other programs, which may be limited, at our sole discretion, to defined and limited existing users or new users. We do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
We automatically bill your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription. We may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of membership or service-related charges and we reserve the right to change the timing of our billing if your Payment Method has not been successfully processed. As used in these Terms, “billing” shall indicate a charge, debit or other payment clearance, as applicable, against your Payment Method.
You may cancel your subscription at any time by contacting us at email@example.com or (855) 234-3591. If you cancel, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription month. IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL 5 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR SHIP DATE, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THAT MONTH’S SUBSCRIPTION CHARGE. All cancellation requests received less than 5 days before the ship date will apply to the following cycle.
The Because Market will not send you a monthly or annual statement. Receipts for recurring charges will be emailed to you, and can be viewed and printed from your account. If you revoke authorization to charge your payment card, or if for any reason your payment card issuer does not submit payment, The Because Market will cancel your subscription TO THE SERVICE or suspend your use of the SITE.
PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED MONTHS.
You may switch any Product, increase (or decrease) the number of Products you are receiving or change your delivery by contacting us by email or phone, or through your “Manage Subscription” online account. IF YOU DO NOT UPDATE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION 5 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR SHIP DATE, YOUR CHANGES MAY NOT GO INTO EFFECT TILL THE FOLLOWING SHIPMENT MONTH.
You may suspend your subscription prospectively by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don’t suspend your subscription 5 days before your ship date, your suspension will become effective the following cycle. You may suspend your subscription for up to 2 months. Your subscription will automatically reactivate once your suspension period expires.
The Because Market may make coupon codes available from time to time at its own discretion. Coupon codes have no cash value and cannot be redeemable for cash, and cannot be combined with any other offers. Limit one coupon code per order. Coupon codes generally expire and are no longer valid for redemption 90 days after their date of generation, but certain coupon codes may have their own redemption period as specified in connection with the coupon code itself. The unauthorized reproduction, resale, modification, or trade of coupon codes is prohibited. Coupon codes are void where prohibited, taxed or restricted. The Because Market reserves the right to change or limit coupon codes in its sole discretion.
From time to time, at our own discretion, we may offer a free one-month trial of our The Because Market subscriptions. You will be automatically enrolled in (and charged for) the subscription plan you selected following the end of any such free trial period. You must cancel before your second box ships in the manner specified in these Terms in order to avoid being charged. Shipping dates vary based on the date you initially enrolled in our service or the date you may have subsequently set in your “Manage Subscription” online dashboard. Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any trouble cancelling your subscription.
**Note: All free trials require a valid credit card.
We may offer other promotions. Any special terms or conditions will be disclosed at the time of the promotion.

If a dispute arises between you and The Because Market, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. When you have a problem with The Because Market, you agree that you will first give The Because Market an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. You may send a written description of your problem or dispute to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after The Because Market’s receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the arbitration provisions below.
This Article XII is referred to herein as the “Arbitration Agreement.” The parties agree that any and all controversies, claims, or disputes between you and The Because Market arising out of, relating to, or resulting from these, shall be subject to binding arbitration pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Arbitration Agreement, and not any court action (other than a small claims court action to the extent the claim qualifies). The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association's ("AAA") rules and procedures (the "AAA Rules"), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. If there is any inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, the terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would, including without limitation, the limitation of liability provisions. You may visit http://www.adr.org for information on the AAA and http://www.adr.org/fileacase for information on how to file a claim against The Because Market.
The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or The Because Market. may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on each party, but subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at any in-person hearing may be made by telephone by either or both parties unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the state of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users of the Site and the Service, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving you to the extent required by applicable law.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the "Arbitration Fees") will be governed by the AAA's Rules. Each party will be responsible for all other fees it incurs in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation, all attorney fees.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement other than Article XII.B (class action waiver) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court decides that any of the provisions of Article XII.B (class action waiver) is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of these Terms will continue to apply.
WE BOTH AGREE THAT, WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION, YOU AND THE BECAUSE MARKET BOTH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL INVOLVING SUCH CLAIMS BETWEEN US.
In no event shall any claim, action or proceeding by you related in any way to the Site, the Service, the Products or these Terms, be instituted more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.
If any part of these Terms shall be held or declared to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective but shall not affect any other part of these Terms.
The failure of The Because Market to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of The Because Market of any breach of these Terms by you shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by The Because Market or be deemed a waiver by The Because Market of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and remedies of The Because Market under these Terms and any other applicable agreement between you and The Because Market shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit The Because Market’s right to exercise any other right or remedy.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and without notice to you, to revise the products and services available on the Site or through the Service and to change, suspend or discontinue any aspect thereof, and we will not be liable to you or to any third party for doing so. We may also impose rules for and limits on the use of the Site or the Service or restrict your access to part, or all, of the Site or subscription to the Service without notice or penalty.
We make no representation that our Site or Service is appropriate or available for use outside the United States, or that any products offered through our Site or Service will be made available outside the United States. Those who choose to access our Site or subscribe to the Service from outside the United States do so on their own initiative and at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with all applicable United States laws as well as local laws and regulations.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Site, the Service or the Products that is not subject to arbitration under Article XII shall be filed only in the state or federal courts in California and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action.
