Terms of Sale

Last Modified: Jun 5, 2024

These Terms of Sale – Retail (“Terms”) are Additional Terms under the Designs for Health, Inc. Terms of Use and are subject to and governed by the Terms of Use, including without limitation provisions limiting dispute resolution to non-class arbitration. By ordering products through any website, mobile application, telephonically, or any other medium that links to, or otherwise references, these Terms (“Products”), you agree to be bound by these Terms. You must be eighteen (18) years of age or older to order Products.

1. Payment and Billing

By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (collectively, as applicable, an “Order”). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your Order.

Any payment terms presented to you for the purchase of Products or other services are deemed part of these Terms. You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers, or changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.

We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you through a payment account for your purchase of Products. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for errors by the Payment Processor. By choosing to purchase Products, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices for the Products in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payments using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.

All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right to adjust prices of the Products, and to adjust any discounts or promotions that may be offered, as we may determine in our sole discretion, at any time and without notice.

All of our Products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products and to substitute Products without prior notice.

3. Coupons and Promotional Codes

Coupons and promotional codes provided to you are for your individual use only. You may not transfer, reproduce, trade, offer for sale, publish or otherwise share coupons and promotional codes unless the terms of the coupon or promotional code expressly allow you to do so. We reserve the right to cancel orders when we have reason to believe that any coupon or promotional code is being used by someone other than the intended recipient, or in the case of suspected abuse, misuse or fraud. We reserve the right to terminate a coupon or promotional code offering at any time and/or set expiration dates for such offers at any time and in our sole discretion. Coupon codes and promotional codes are not valid on prior purchases.

4. Sales Taxes

We will collect applicable sales tax on Products shipped to the states, territories, or other jurisdictions for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.

You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase.

You agree that you will not obtain, or direct shipment of, a Product for export. All Products purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract.
