By signing up for the Services, you consent to receiving electronic communications from us that are related to your use of the Services. These electronic communications may include emails and, if applicable, notifications posted to your account on the Services. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically via email or posting to your account satisfy any legal requirement that the same be in writing.
By registering an account on the Services, you represent and warrant that all account information you submit is your own information and is truthful and accurate. You understand and agree that we may immediately suspend or terminate your account if we have any reason to believe that you have misrepresented or provided false account information to us. It is your responsibility to keep your account information accurate and current. As the account holder, you are responsible for safeguarding your account login information (username and password), and you should notify us immediately in the event your account login is lost, stolen, or used by another without your permission. You are responsible for all activities on your account, including those of any other user you allow to access your account, and any misconduct by you or any such user may result in immediate suspension or termination of your account in our sole discretion.
You agree that your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all products, subscriptions, or services listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us, or we will not be obligated to sell the products, Subscriptions (as defined below), or services to you. Acceptance of your order will not take place unless and until you have received your order confirmation e-mail. You have the option to cancel your order at any time before we have sent your order confirmation e-mail by contacting us at email@example.com. We reserve the right to limit the quantity of products sold to you.
All prices are subject to change without notice. Unless otherwise indicated on the Website, prices for products and services do not include VAT, other taxes, delivery, export, or other charges. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical or other errors in any offer by us. We reserve the right to, at any time prior to fulfillment, cancel any orders arising from such errors, for any other reason, or for no reason. All prices displayed on this Website apply only to the products, Subscriptions, or Services available on the Website and may not reflect the prices of such products, Subscriptions, or similar items, available through retail stores, catalogs, other online marketplaces, or otherwise.
Returns and Refunds. Except for any other products designated on the Website as non-returnable or non-refundable or as otherwise set forth herein, we will accept a return of the products for a refund of your purchase price, less the original shipping and handling costs, provided such return is made within 15 days of delivery and provided such products are returned in their original condition. As described below, Subscriptions are sold on a non-refundable basis. To request a product return, you must e-mail our Customer Service Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are responsible for all shipping and handling charges on returned items. You bear the risk of loss during shipment. We therefore strongly recommend that you fully insure your return shipment against loss or damage and that you use a carrier that can provide you with proof of delivery for your protection. Refunds, when allowable, are processed within approximately fourteen (14) days after we receive your product return. Your refund will be credited back to the same payment method used to make the original purchase on the Website.
Subscriptions. USPC may, from time to time, offer different types of subscription plans (“Subscriptions”) and the specific pricing terms applicable may vary depending on promotions, the type of subscription, and the term you select at the time of purchase (e.g., monthly, yearly). If you purchase a Subscription, you are subscribing to an automatically renewing subscription requiring recurring payments at the stated frequency (e.g., monthly or annual) until cancelled. If you purchase a Subscription, you will be charged your first subscription fee and any applicable taxes on the date you purchase your Subscription.
Renewals. Your Subscription will automatically continue at the selected interval, and you will continue to be charged at the then-current price (including any applicable taxes), unless at least 24 hours prior to the end of the current subscription period: (a) you terminate your account; (b) you cancel your subscription (as described below); (c) we decline to renew your subscription; or (d) these Sale Terms are otherwise properly terminated as expressly permitted herein. The subscription fee is non-refundable except as expressly set forth in these Sale Terms or in accordance with applicable law. If any subscription fee is not paid in a timely manner, or your transaction cannot be processed, we reserve the right to suspend, disable, cancel, or terminate your access to the Service or cancel your Subscription. You will be responsible for paying all past due amounts.
Promotional Rates. If you signed up with a promotion, your renewal rate may be higher than your initial rate as agreed upon when you made the purchase. You will be charged the promotional rate for the relevant number of billing periods and upon completion of that period, your Subscription will continue to automatically renew at the full rate.
Payment Information. When you purchase a Subscription, you must provide accurate and complete information for a valid payment method that you are authorized to use - this information may be collected and processed by a third-party app store or platform.
Cancellation. When you cancel a Subscription, you cancel only future charges associated with your Subscription. You may initiate your cancellation at any time, but the cancellation will become effective at the end of your current subscription period. In order to avoid future charges, you must cancel your Subscription at least 24 hours prior to the end of your current subscription period. Subscriptions purchased through a third-party app store or platform must be cancelled through that third party.
No Refunds. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE STATED HEREIN OR REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEE IS NONREFUNDABLE and if you cancel your Subscription, you will not receive any refund and you will continue to have access to your Subscription benefits and services at least until the end of your current subscription period. We reserve the right to issue refunds, credits, or discounts at our sole discretion. If we issue a refund, credit, or discount, we are under no obligation to issue the same or similar refund in the future.
Termination. We may terminate your Subscription at our sole discretion and without any notice. If we cancel your Subscription, we may give you a prorated refund based on the amount of time remaining that you cannot use; provided, however, that we will not be obligated to grant you a refund if we terminate your account or your Subscription because we determine, in our sole discretion, that your actions or your use of the Service violate these Sale Terms, any applicable law, or has harmed another user.
Changes. We may change the subscription terms or fees at any time on a going forward basis in our discretion. If the pricing for your Subscription increases, we will notify you, and provide you an opportunity to change your Subscription before applying those changes to your account or charging you in connection with an automatic renewal. We may choose in our sole discretion to add, modify, or remove benefits and features from a Subscription. Your continued use of the Service after the changes become effective will constitute your acceptance of the changes. If you do not wish to continue subscribing with the new fees or features, you may cancel your Subscription. If you accept the new Subscription, its terms and conditions will apply for that renewal and all renewals going forward.

The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.

Either party may also elect to have disputes or claims resolved in a small claims court that are within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. Either party may also seek a declaratory judgment or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction regarding whether a party’s claims are time-barred or may be brought in small claims court in your state and county of residence.
