SECTION 7 - PAYMENTS: ORDERING & AVAILABILITY; BILLING AND CONTINUOUS SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES
7.1 You agree to provide accurate and up-to-date payment information at the time you order any product. We have contracted with a third-party payment processor to facilitate purchases made on the Service. When you make a purchase through the website, you will provide your payment details and any additional information required to complete your order directly to our third-party payment processor. You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by our payment processor and your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorize payment for any reason. For your protection, our payment processor uses various fraud prevention protocols and industry standard verification systems to reduce fraud and you authorize it to verify and authenticate your payment information. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this. In some jurisdictions, our payment processor may use third parties under strict confidentiality and data protection requirements for the purposes of payment processing services.
7.2 You agree to have sufficient funds or credit available upon placement of any such order to ensure that the purchase price will be collectible by us. After you place your order, we will send you a confirmation email (the “Order Confirmation”). We strive to provide accurate pricing information regarding the products available on the Service. We cannot, however, insure against pricing errors. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a product whose price was incorrectly posted on the Service as a result of an error. If this occurs, we will notify you by email. The Service may contain information regarding the availability of products. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place the order, and sold out by the time we attempt to process the order. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order. We also may offer some products for sale before they have been manufactured or arrive at our warehouse. When you preorder these products, we will ship them out once they are available. In rare cases, these items may not become available for shipping. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order.
7.3 Unless otherwise specified, prices quoted are exclusive of: (a) the costs of shipping or carriage to the agreed place of delivery; and (b) value added tax and any other tax or duty which (where applicable) must be added to the price payable. You agree to pay for taxes, shipping or carriage of the products as such costs are specified by us when you submit your order.
7.4 Some of the services that we offer, such as Wag By Dogphora, may consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. You will have the ability to specify how regularly you would like to order any auto-replacing products. BY CHOOSING A RECURRING PAYMENT PLAN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (A) DOGPHORA (OR OUR THIRD-PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A RECURRING BASIS (E.G., MONTHLY) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES AND (B) YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR STOP PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE SERVICE OR PRODUCTS. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME BY EMAILING US AT SUPPORT@DOGPHORA.COM. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES INCURRED WITH RESPECT TO ANY ORDER PROCESSED PRIOR TO THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION. All recurring payments are fully earned upon payment.
7.5 All orders of our products must be for your personal use only. By purchasing products, you hereby agree not to resell or distribute such products for any commercial purposes. All orders are subject to our acceptance or rejection based on product availability, noncompliance with this Agreement or any other reason as determined in our sole discretion. For instance, if we have reason to believe that your order is not for personal use, we reserve the right to reject or cancel any order that you place. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity to process your order. We will either not charge you or refund the charges for orders that we cancel or do not process.
7.6 We attempt to provide accurate descriptions of products. We do not warrant, however, that the descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. If a product is not as described, your sole remedy is to return the item, unless otherwise specified in writing by us. We occasionally run promotions or provide limited-time offers for our products. Please review the promotion or offer for eligibility and other terms and conditions.
SECTION 8 - DELIVERY
8.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances and except in the case of pre-orders.
8.2 Your order will be delivered to the delivery address that you specify when placing your order. If we are unable to deliver to your delivery address, for example if your delivery address is geographically remote, we will notify you before we accept your order. We reserve the right not to deliver to any country that is prohibited by applicable export laws. Products comprised within the same order cannot be delivered to different addresses.
8.3 The product(s) ordered will be at your risk from the time you receive the product(s). Ownership of the product(s) ordered will also pass to you upon your receipt of the product(s), provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the product(s), including any delivery charges, has been received.
8.4 If any product you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a product was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should inform us as soon as possible, preferably in writing, giving your name, address and order reference. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
SECTION 9 - RETURNS AND EXCHANGES
9.1 Except for gift cards and store-specific merchandise, which are final sale, we accept products for returns and exchanges if requests are submitted within 7 days of receiving the order (in its entirety). To return or exchange your product(s), please email us at email@example.com with your name, address, order number and the product(s) you would like to exchange or return. After we receive your written request, we will respond with further instructions about returning the product(s) to us.
9.2 Upon receiving the returned product(s) from you, we will process any refund due to you as soon as possible. You will be refunded in full to your original form of payment, including the cost of standard delivery; however, we will not refund your cost of returning the product(s) to us.

SECTION 29 - ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
YOU AND DOGPHORA AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM.

Any dispute between you and Dogphora, its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively for purposes of this section, 'Dogphora') arising from or relating to these Terms of Service and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms of Service, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, "Covered Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration administered by the JAMS, Inc. under its rules applicable to consumer disputes, in effect on the date thereof. Information on JAMS and how to start arbitration can be found at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 800-352-5267. For purposes of this section, these Terms of Service and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days' advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Dogphora will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail address on file with Dogphora and you must provide such notice by e-mail to email@example.com. During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever individual relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
DOGPHORA AND YOU AGREE THAT ANY COVERED DISPUTE HEREUNDER WILL BE SUBMITTED TO ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY. NEITHER DOGPHORA NOR YOU ARE ENTITLED TO ARBITRATE ANY COVERED DISPUTE AS A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY ACTION AND THE ARBITRATOR(S) WILL HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL BASIS. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration).
Notwithstanding any provision in these terms to the contrary, we agree that if Dogphora makes any future material change to this dispute resolution provision, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice to Dogphora. In the event that this arbitration agreement does not apply to a given dispute, then the parties agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Kings County, New York to resolve such claims.
SECTION 30 - SEVERABILITY
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
