12. Arbitration Policy
We agree—both you (and your family members and beneficiaries) and My Pre-K Box (meaning the corporation together with its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, successors or assigns)— that (1) any mutual claim, dispute or controversy, or (2) any claim by either of us against the other on any matter, or (3) any claim arising from or related to this agreement, or (4) any claim arising from the relationships that result from this agreement, no matter against whom made, or (5) any dispute over the applicability of this Arbitration Agreement, or (6) any dispute about the validity of part of or the entire Arbitration Agreement (and hereinafter any or all types of claims, disputes, or controversies shall be referred to as a “Dispute” or “Disputes”), SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY BY NEUTRAL, BINDING ARBITRATION BY THE NATIONAL ARBITRATION FORUM in the United States, under its Code of Procedure in effect at the time that the cause(s) of the Dispute arose or at the time that the Dispute is arbitrated (whichever is determined, in the sole discretion of the arbitrator, to be appropriate), except as specified otherwise in this Mutual Arbitration Agreement.
To get more information on how to file a claim and obtain relevant forms, please contact the National Arbitration Forum at http://www.adrforum.com/, write to them at P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55405, call them toll-free at 1-800-474-2371, or fax them at 1-952-345- 1160. The identity of the arbitrator shall be determined solely by the National Arbitration Forum, so as to eliminate any undue influence that you or My Pre-K Box can apply to the detriment of the other regarding the choice of arbitrator at the National Arbitration Forum.
In the event that, for any reason, the National Arbitration Forum is unable or unwilling to arbitrate the Dispute in binding fashion, you and My Pre-K Box agree that the American Arbitration Association shall arbitrate the Dispute in binding fashion. To contact the American Arbitration Association (at www.adr.org), write to them at The Paramount Building, 1633 Broadway, Tenth Floor, New York, NY 10019, call them at 1-212-484-3266, or fax them at 1-212-307-4387. The identity of the arbitrator shall be determined solely by the American Arbitration Association, so as to eliminate any undue influence that you or My Pre-K Box can apply to the detriment of the other regarding the choice of arbitrator at the American Arbitration Association.
In the event that, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is also unable or unwilling to arbitrate the Dispute in binding fashion, you and My Pre-K Box agree that you and My Pre-K Box shall endeavor in good faith to secure the services of another neutral arbitration body and that, under no circumstances, shall the Dispute be entertained by a court of law.
We both agree that the arbitration shall be conducted before one neutral arbitrator, who shall be selected by the National Arbitration Forum (or by a default arbitration body as set forth above). Any award of the arbitrator may be entered as a judgment in a United States court having jurisdiction as determined in the sole discretion of the arbitrator. In the event that a court having jurisdiction finds any portion of this Mutual Arbitration Agreement unenforceable, that portion shall not be effective, and the remainder of the Mutual Arbitration Agreement shall remain effective.
BOTH PARTIES TO THIS Mutual Arbitration Agreement—YOU AND My Pre-K Box—UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE HAD THE RIGHT OR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE OUR CASE, BUT YOU AND WE CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY DISPUTES DECIDED THROUGH ARBITRATION.
We agree that THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE LIMITED SOLELY TO THE DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND My Pre-K Box, meaning that the arbitration, or any portion of it, will not be consolidated with any other arbitration, and will not be conducted on a class-wide or class action basis. In other words, WE ARE BOTH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS WITH OTHER PERSONS OR CORPORATIONS WHO MAY HAVE THE SAME OR SIMILAR CLAIMS AGAINST YOU OR AGAINST US. Further, WE BOTH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO ARBITRATE ANY CLAIM AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY, AND WE BOTH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY MANNER IN A CLASS ACTION EITHER IN A COURT OF LAW OR IN ARBITRATION AGAINST EACH OTHER. THE TERMS OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MAY CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE FROM TIME TO TIME. THE TERMS THAT SHALL BE APPLICABLE TO DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND My Pre-K Box SHALL BE THOSE TERMS THAT ARE SET FORTH HERE AT THE TIME THAT THE TRANSACTION OR OCCURRENCE THAT GAVE RISE TO THE DISPUTE OCCURRED.
YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT IF, WITHIN 30 DAYS OF YOUR PURCHASE OF A PRODUCT FROM THIS WEBSITE, YOU SEND AN EMAIL TO THE FOLLOWING EMAIL ADDRESS: email@example.com, AND SUCH EMAIL CLEARLY INDICATES YOUR REQUEST TO OPT OUT. You must include your name, telephone number, and order number in your email. You will receive an email confirmation of your opt-out within 3 business days.

In the event a Product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or Product information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right, prior to the acceptance of your order (as described below), to decline or cancel any such orders, whether or not the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card charged.

When you make an order, you are making an offer to purchase, and such offer is subject to our acceptance. Your receipt of an order confirmation from us does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline or cancel your order (in whole or in part) for any reason. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. Your order is not accepted until we send you shipping information for the order (or the accepted portion thereof). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that, if we cancel all or a part of your order, your sole and exclusive remedy is either that (a) we will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion (if your credit card has already been charged for the order) or (b) we will not charge your credit card for the cancelled portion of the order.
15. Payment Terms
For each Product you order on the Site, you agree to pay the price applicable for the Product as of the time you submitted your order (“Product Price”), the delivery fees for the delivery service you select (“Delivery Fees”), and any applicable Taxes (defined below).

Your next billing date will be displayed in your Account page next to each of your active Subscriptions. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled, your original purchase date is within 15 days of your auto-renewal date, there are unforeseen delays that hinder our ability to ship your product or there are changes to your account or Subscriptions. Please also note that if your Subscription includes a discounted Product Price for a promotional period, once the promotional period expires, your Subscription will renew at the full Product Price. As such, if you purchase a Subscription, until such time as you terminate your Subscription in accordance with the directions on this site, you hereby authorize, agree and assent to the Company automatically billing your credit card submitted as part of the order process for such amounts that are due. You will be solely responsible for payment of all taxes (other than taxes based on Company’s income), fees, duties, and other governmental charges, and any related penalties and interest, arising from the Product purchase (“Taxes”) not withheld by Company, including, without limitation, all Product purchased pursuant to any Updated Subscription. All payments are non-refundable (except as expressly set forth in this Section II). Without limiting other remedies, we reserve the right to charge a late fee on all past due payments equivalent to the lesser of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month on the unpaid balance or the highest rate allowed by law. You agree to pay for all collection costs, attorneys’ fees, and court costs incurred in the collection of past due amounts.
16. Shipping Policy
