BOX & CHAIN MEMBERSHIP
The membership allows registered members to access the website and, with an account (as defined below), products from Box & Chain in accordance with these terms. Members also agree to comply with any terms, conditions, or policies that Box & Chain may provide to users from time to time on the website.
Box & Chain offers two membership types: a rebillable membership (the "Recurring Membership") and a prepaid gift membership (the "Gift Membership"). Recurring memberships and gift memberships may be referred to collectively as "Memberships" or "Subscriptions". Under our membership programs, the member is sent products from a selection offered by our company. Products will be shipped to the member's address on a recurring basis, with no due dates or limits on the number of times a member's subscription is renewed. However, we do limit the number of products you receive at one time, all as outlined on the Website. Members keep any product they receive for the month; however, we reserve the right to require the return of any or all products in your possession in the event of fraudulent payment activity on the members behalf. Delivery time for products you have selected may vary based upon (a) inventory availability, (b) your delivery address, (c) when you place an order, and (d) other circumstances impacting delivery. Accordingly, Box & Chain makes no guarantees as to actual delivery time. We will send you an email letting you know when your product is shipped. The risk of loss for a product passes to you upon a shipping carrier’s confirmation of delivery, and from then on you bear the risk of loss and are responsible for the products; provided, however, that if you receive a damaged product, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately and return any such damaged products as you normally would. All shipping carrier confirmed deliveries are the sole responsibility of the recipient. If you are unable to locate a confirmed delivery of a shipment Box & Chain has sent to you, or if you are unable to confirm that a shipment you returned to Box & Chain has been delivered, you are required to contact and notify Box & Chain within 10 days of delivery date listed on shipment tracking, so we may investigate.
If you erroneously ship an item which is not a product of Box & Chain to us mistakenly, we will endeavor to notify you and return the item discovered, but we are not responsible or liable for items sent to us in error. If you realize you’ve sent us an item in error, please contact us at email@example.com as soon as possible so we can attempt to locate it and return it to you.
Recurring Memberships: By purchasing a recurring membership, you acknowledge that your membership has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. Your membership will be automatically extended for successive terms, at the then-current membership rate. Members with a recurring membership may place a temporary hold (a "Hold Period") on their account in accordance with current Box & Chain policies. During a hold period, a member will not be charged a fee or receive any shipments, but such member may still purchase products from our website. Box & Chain reserves the right to permanently terminate memberships that have been on hold for 6 months or longer without dispute or the necessity to notify the member.
Gift Memberships: Current members may buy a gift membership (Gift Card) online and transfer it to a recipient. A Gift membership will not be automatically renewed after the then-current term expires. You can cancel a gift membership, but the pre-paid fee is non-refundable. If you have a gift membership of any term, your membership ends the same term from the date the gift membership was redeemed. Members with gift memberships are eligible for hold periods. Gift membership prices are not subject to change, and no price adjustments will be made to gift memberships previously purchased at a different price.
Gift membership recipients may be pre-existing Members with recurring memberships. If a member on a recurring membership redeems a gift membership, the price of the gift membership will be used as payment for the recurring membership until the gift membership runs out. The recurring membership will resume at the end of the gift membership. Gift membership recipients may redeem their valid gift memberships using the Box & Chain gift code ("Gift Code"). The gift code does not expire and can be redeemed at any time. Once redeemed and activated, the gift membership recipient is no longer eligible for any free or discounted trial period. Gift codes may not be redeemed for cash, or combined with other promotional, free or discounted trial offers or incentives. Gift codes are for personal use and may not be shared. Box & Chain is not responsible for unintended use of gift codes, lost or stolen gift codes, or the unauthorized redemption of gift codes, except as required by law.
Termination: A recurring membership continues until terminated in accordance with these terms. Box & Chain or the member can terminate at any time at their discretion with no cancellation fee and no responsibility for recurring charges after cancellation. Any products still in your possession at the time of termination are allowed to stay in your possession if you have successfully paid any and all required membership fees. When a membership has been terminated, any membership fees already paid are non-refundable. If you commit fraud on any month of your billing cycle we will initiate legal action and/or use third party collection agencies to recover all products sent to you and you will additionally be liable for any recovery fees and costs charged by the agency. Upon termination, your account is not deleted and you can still sign in to the website until such time as Box & Chain limits your access to or suspends your account. You agree that any termination, limitation of access and/or suspension shall be made in Box & Chain's sole discretion and that Box & Chain not be liable to you or any third party for the termination, limitation of access and/or suspension of your Account. Without prejudice to our other rights under these terms, if you breach these terms we may take such action as we deem appropriate to deal with the breach.

If you choose to use our social network populating feature to create an account, we may import information for your account or profile on our Website from a Social Network. We only import from the information you allow to be imported from the Social Network access to which is controlled by your privacy settings on that Social Network ("Permitted Social Network Content"). The authentication of your Social Network login credentials is conducted solely by the Social Network. If you do use this feature we will initially create your profile by displaying your first name as the user name displayed to other users, gender, current city, interests, about me, photos, and age (which is calculated from your birthdate). With your permission, we may also combine that information with your public social media profile (which may include your friend list, birthday, work history, interests, current city, photos, personal description and likes). IN ORDER TO VERIFY THAT THE INFORMATION WE RECEIVE FROM A SOCIAL NETWORK IS TRUE, ACCURATE, AND COMPLETE, AS IT WILL CONSTITUTE THE REGISTRATION DATA, WE MAY CONTACT YOU PRIOR TO REGISTERING YOUR ACCOUNT.
When you open an Account, you will be required to provide Box & Chain with accurate, complete and current Payment Method information that you are authorized to use. Box & Chain currently only accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, Discover Card, and PayPal (each a "Payment Method"). We do not accept cash, money orders, pre-paid, or pre-loaded cards or personal check or travelers checks of any kind. By signing up for a Membership, you authorize Box & Chain or its agent to bill your Payment Method for the applicable Membership fee, any Product purchases, any Gift Membership, shipping charges (if any), any and all applicable taxes, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Membership. Other fees will be charged to your Payment Method as you incur them. Membership fees are non-refundable. You agree not to charge back any fees or charges and any charge backs will result in you paying associated charge back fees. For a monthly Recurring Membership, your Membership will automatically renew for successive monthly Membership periods, unless you cancel your Membership or your Membership is otherwise determined by Box & Chain to terminate under these Terms. The renewal date is the day you're billed each month. For example, if we first billed you on February 10, your renewal date is the 10th of each month. In the cases where the renewal date falls on a day after the last date of a shorter month, your renewal date will fall on the last date of that month. For example, if your renewal date is January 31st, your renewal date in February will be February 28th.
If Box & Chain does not receive payment through your chosen Payment Method, if your Payment Method expires or is rejected, or if there is a charge back for any reason, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand plus applicable taxes. Following any such non-payment, we may require you to provide a second valid Payment Method before continuing to use the Services and you authorize Box & Chain to charge outstanding fees and other amounts due us against any Payment Method you have on file with us.
Box & Chain reserves the right to take all steps necessary to collect amounts due from you, including but not limited to legal action and/or using third party collection agencies. If your account is forwarded to a collections agency, you will additionally be liable for any recovery fees and costs charged by the agency. Box & Chain reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your Payment Method by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, overdraft, insufficient funds, charge backs, and over the credit limit fees. You agree to notify us about any billing problems or discrepancies within 60 days after they first appear on your Account statement. If you do not bring them to our attention within 60 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.
We reserve the right at any time to determine whether your Payment Method(s) is/are pre-authorized to accept a minimum charge equal to the Membership fee or to each Product being tried or purchased. If we conclude that the amount of available credit is not sufficient to cover these amounts, we may terminate your Membership and/or have you provide a second valid Payment Method before continuing to use the Service.
For some forms of payment, an initial authorization charge may be processed, confirmed by you, and then returned to you in order to verify the validity of your Payment Method. There will then be a second authorization for the actual amount of the applicable monthly Membership fee or purchase price. Once the order has gone through and shipped, only the actual amount of the order and any applicable taxes/fees/charges will be charged.
FREE OR DISCOUNTED TRIAL PERIODS
Free or discounted trial periods are offered at the discretion of Box & Chain, and are subject to discontinuation at any time. If we suspect you have had an active Account within the last 12 months, we may determine, in our sole discretion, that you are not eligible for a free or discounted trial. We consider your household not eligible if your Payment Method, physical address or email address have been associated with another active Account in the 12 months prior to the day of Account creation. Creating duplicate Accounts under another name, email, or address in order to obtain more than one free or discounted trial is fraud, in violation of both our Terms and Federal laws regarding mail fraud, and the creator and/or user of such accounts shall be held liable. New Accounts that are eligible for a free trial will be authorized on the first day of Services for the full billing cycle payment, and your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization; however, no charges will be made against your Payment Method unless you do not cancel before the end of your free trial period. At the end of your free or discounted trial period, Box & Chain will automatically bill your Payment Method for the next billing cycle of Services. We will not notify you when your trial period has ended. You can view the date your free or discounted trial ends in the Account section on our Website. IF YOU CANCEL PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR FREE OR DISCOUNTED TRIAL, THERE WILL BE NO FURTHER CHARGES TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD.
The monthly membership fee paid by the customer is the purchase of the jewelry for the month. There are no other necessary action that need to be taken in order to purchase jewelry from the subscription box sent for any particular month. You hereby authorize Box & Chain to charge your Payment Method for the Product/Products you will receive each month, plus any applicable sales taxes. You can also purchase Jewelry directly from the Box & Chain store, thereby authorizing Box & Chain to immediately charge your Payment Method for the Products purchased.
If the purchased Product becomes damaged through normal wear, we will not replace or refund the Product. We may replace items that are defective or arrive damaged, at our discretion. Purchases from the Box & Chain Shop are final sale, and no refunds will be issued after the orders are placed on the Service.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND BOX & CHAIN HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
Once you agree to these terms of service, you have therefore immediately and irrevocably waived your right to file any suit against Box & Chain and its members, associates, or any others associated with Box & Chain in any way. The following section about law suit resolution pertains to anyone who has not agreed to the terms of service and therefore has not waived their right to file suit. You and Box & Chain agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of these Terms, your use of or access to the Website, or any Products or Services ("Disputes"), will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Section (the "Agreement to Arbitrate").
You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or preempted by federal law, the laws of the State of Virginia, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern the Terms and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Box & Chain, except as otherwise stated in the Terms.
You and Box & Chain each agree that any and all Disputes shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate to the exclusion of state law inconsistent therewith.
YOU AND BOX & CHAIN AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND BOX & CHAIN AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should interpret these Terms as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, equitable actions with respect to intellectual property as described above, or the interpretation of prohibition of class and representative actions, private attorney general actions, and non-individualized relief shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The use of the word "arbitrator" in this provision shall not be construed to prohibit more than one arbitrator from presiding over an arbitration: rather, the AAA’s rules will govern the number of arbitrators that may preside over an arbitration conducted under this Agreement to Arbitrate.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a completed form Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Box & Chain should be sent to Box & Chain at the address first set forth above. Box & Chain will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your Account; it is your responsibility to keep your physical address up to date. All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
If you and Box & Chain are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Box & Chain may initiate arbitration proceedings. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. Any settlement offer made by you or Box & Chain shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.
The arbitration hearing shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Box & Chain submit to the arbitrator, unless you elect to have an in-person hearing or the arbitrator determines an in-person hearing is necessary. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or Box & Chain may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator or AAA rules require otherwise. If the value of the relief sought exceeds $10,000, the right to an in-person hearing will be governed by the AAA rules.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Box & Chain user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitations on Liability" section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be liable. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If you prevail in arbitration, the arbitrator may award you reimbursement of your attorneys’ fees and expenses if you seek such relief. Box & Chain will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If you decide to commence arbitration, you will be responsible to pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration for both yourself and for Box & Chain, LLC. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, you agree to reimburse Box & Chain for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Box & Chain.
With the exception of any of the provisions with respect to the prohibition of class and representative and private attorney general actions, and non-individualized relief, if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If an arbitrator or court decides that any of the provisions with respect to the prohibition of class and representative and private attorney general actions, and non-individualized relief is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of these Terms and its Legal Disputes Section will continue to apply.
Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any amendment to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than an amendment to any notice address or site link provided herein) in the future, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Box & Chain prior to the effective date of the amendment. The amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the Agreement to Arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between You and Box & Chain. We will notify you of amendments to this Agreement to Arbitrate by posting the amended terms on the Website or by providing notice by email. If you do not agree to these amended terms, you may close your Account within the 30-day period after such notice and you will not be bound by the amended terms.
Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above 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 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 Box & Chain must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the state of business at the time. You and Box & Chain agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within said state of business, for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
