You are responsible for protecting your Login Credentials from unauthorized use, and you are responsible for any activity that occurs on your Account, including with respect to any financial obligation.

3. Our Services; Fees.
a. Product Purchases. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, you may purchase products from us in our online store available through our Website and operated through Shopify, Inc. or such other third party service provider as we may from time to time use (the “Equii Store” and such products, our “Products”). All Products, prices and specifications described on our Platform are subject to change at any time without notice. We may send you an order confirmation notice to the e-mail address you provide to us upon submission of your order to purchase. You acknowledge that the information on our Platform regarding our Products have not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
i. Order Acceptance and Cancellation. You agree that your order to purchase our Products in the Equii Store is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all products and services listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us or we will not be obligated to sell the products or services to you. We may choose not to accept orders at our sole discretion, even if and after we send you an order confirmation email with your order number and details of the items you have ordered.
ii. Prices. Prices posted on our Platform may be different than prices we may offer from time to time at other retailers. All prices, discounts and promotions posted on our Platform are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a product or service will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be set out in your order confirmation email. Posted prices may not include taxes or charges for shipping or handling. All such taxes and charges may be added to your merchandise total and may be itemized in your shopping card and order confirmation notice.
iii. Billing and Payment Policy. When you purchase a Product and make a payment over our Platform (a “Transaction”), you expressly authorize us or our third-party payment processor to charge you for such Transaction. We may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, including your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card and your email and postal addresses for billing and notification, as well as information that may be needed to verify your identity (collectively, “Payment Information”). When you initiate a Transaction, you authorize us to provide your Payment Information to third parties to complete your Transaction and to charge your payment method for the type of Transaction you have selected (plus applicable taxes and fees). Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order. You represent and warrant to us that (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including any shipping and handling fees and applicable taxes, regardless of the amount quoted on our Services at the time of your order.
iv. Shipments and Delivery. Products will be shipped to the address you designate as the shipping address during the order process. Shipping restrictions apply, as more fully described on the “FAQ” page of our Website. You will pay all shipping and handling fees specified during the order process. We will not be liable for packages refused or held for delivery. Refunds will not be issued for any order that is refused or abandoned by the intended recipient or orders that cannot be delivered due to an address error. Title and risk of loss pass to you upon our transfer of the Products to the carrier. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in shipments. We will not be liable or responsible to you, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached these Terms, for any failure or delay in our performance under these Terms when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, governmental actions, war, invasion or hostilities, terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lockouts, strikes or other labor disputes (whether or not relating to our workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown or power outage.
v. Refunds and Returns. For food safety reasons, we cannot accept returns of Products. We have no obligation to provide refunds, but may grant them in certain circumstances in our sole discretion. In no event will Equii’s payment or compensation to you, regardless of amount, evidence assumption of liability by Equii or its affiliates of any negligence or claim or future claim that may be brought in connection with the refunded Product or any other Product.
vi. No Resale. You agree that all Product purchases must be only for your personal use, and not for resale. We may cancel any Product order if we, in our sole discretion, believe that the Products subject to such order may be being purchased for any purpose other than personal use.
b. Subscribe-and-Save Program. We may, in our sole discretion, offer a subscribe-and-save program through which you may subscribe to purchase Products in the Equii Store on a periodic basis in exchange for certain discounts or other offers as determined and communicated by us in our sole discretion (the “Subscribe-and-Save Program”). We reserve the right to terminate the Subscribe-and-Save Program at any time, upon electronic notice to you at the email address you provided to us. You will be required to create an Account to use the Subscribe-and-Save Program.
c. Offer Codes. From time to time, we may offer promotional or offer codes that are redeemable towards a purchase of Products in the Equii Store, subject to expiration dates, minimum purchase orders, Product exclusions and such other restrictions as may be determined and communicated by us in our sole discretion (“Offer Codes”). Only valid Offer Codes provided by Equii will be honored. Each Offer Code offered by Equii (i) is non-transferable, (ii) is non-retroactive, (iii) is valid for one single purchase on the Equii Store and (iv) cannot be redeemed for cash or any cash equivalent. Offer Codes cannot be used towards purchase of non-Equii branded merchandise, taxes or shipping fees. We are not responsible for any unauthorized use of Offer Codes. The monetary value of the Offer Code will not be refunded or credited back if the Product purchased using the Offer Code is returned. Offer Codes are void if copied, transferred, sold, exchanged, or expired, and where prohibited. Equii may engage spokespeople, influencers or other individuals or entities who have been compensated or incentivized to speak on behalf of our brand. If you receive an Offer Code from a third-party source, note that such individual may have been compensated by Equii for such individual’s statements.
d. Referral Program. We may provide you referral credits, which may entitle you to promotional discounts, free products or other benefits as determined in our sole discretion (“Referral Credits”) when you invite other Users to make a qualifying order on the Equii Store (“Credit-Eligible Orders”) using your applicable referral code (the “Referral Program”). Referral Credits may be awarded to you when such Users make their first such purchase using the referral code we provide to you. Referral Credits are loyalty or promotional discounts and do not constitute an account, a payment instrument or other property owned by any User. Referral codes are granted in our sole discretion and are void where prohibited. Any person that receives credits, coupons, prizes or other benefits from us by posting to coupon sites, comment sections on third-party sites, using multiple user accounts or email addresses, using false names, impersonating others or through the use of any other fraudulent or misleading conduct as determined by us, shall forfeit any such credits, coupons, prizes or benefits, and may be liable for civil and/or criminal penalties under applicable law. We reserve the right to deactivate your referral code or cancel the Referral Program at any time in our sole discretion. Any unclaimed referral rewards will be forfeited at that time. Any distribution of your referral code that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or "spam" under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for your immediate exclusion from the Referral Program.
e. Referrals. We may engage distributors or other individuals or entities who may have been compensated or incentivized to speak on our behalf and/or refer you to our Platform. If you receive a referral from a third-party source, note that such individual or entity may have been compensated by us for his or her statements.

Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that this Section 10 is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt-out of the agreement to arbitrate set forth in Section 11(a) or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the County of Alameda except that you or we are permitted (a) to bring small claims actions in state court in the county in which you reside if such court has a small claims procedure and if such court is located in the United States of America; (b) to bring claims for injunctive relief in any court having jurisdiction over the parties; or (c) to seek enforcement of a judgment in any court having jurisdiction over the parties. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you and we agree to waive trial by jury in any court proceeding.

c. Opt-out. You may opt out of the agreement to arbitrate set forth in Section 11(a). If you do so, neither you nor we can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify us in writing within thirty (30) days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. The opt-out notice must state that you do not agree to the Agreement to Arbitrate and must include your name, address, phone number, your Account, if applicable, to which the opt-out applies and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this Agreement to Arbitrate. You must sign the opt-out notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. You must use this address to opt out: Cella Farms, Inc. ATTN: Arbitration Out-Out, 1933 Davis Street, Suite 236, San Leandro CA 94577.
d. Effect of Changes on Arbitration.
