1. Introduction

These are the terms of use (“Terms of Use”) for your use of services or features on the sites owned and controlled by The Human Beauty Movement, PBC (“The HBM”), including humanistbeauty.com. We may add additional Sites from time to time as we expand our offerings and these Terms of Use will govern those new Sites when added. You may be accessing our Sites from a computer or mobile phone device (through an iPhone application, for example) and these Terms of Use govern your use of our Sites and your conduct, regardless of the means of access.

If you register for a Humanist Beauty account, you will have pages associated with your Humanist Beauty account, including an Account page.

Humanist Beauty has an online social community (“Community”). Community allows you to participate in Groups, Conversations, Chats, Blogs, to provide Ratings & Reviews, and to receive product recommendations. These Terms of Use govern your participation in the Community.

BY USING THE SITES, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS OF USE, OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR GUIDELINES AND RULES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THESE, YOU SHOULD NOT USE OUR SITES.

We also like to interact with you on third party sites where we post content or invite your feedback, such as www.facebook.com/humanistbeauty, www.twitter.com/humanistbeauty, www.instagram.com/humanistbeauty, and www.youtube.com/humanistbeauty, (“Third Party Sites”), among others. Our Terms of Use and other areas of our Sites may provide guidelines (“Guidelines”) and rules and regulations (“Rules”) in connection with the Community, including services that involve Third Party Sites, but Humanist Beauty does not control those Third Party Sites, and these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and our Rules do not apply to companies that Humanist Beauty does not own or control, or to the actions of people that Humanist Beauty does not employ or manage. You should always check the terms of use posted on Third Party Sites.

Humanist Beauty reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in the Terms of Use, Guidelines and Rules from time to time at any time, without notice, and in its sole discretion. If Humanist Beauty decides to change these Terms of Use, Humanist Beauty will post a new version on the Sites and update the date set forth above. Any changes or modifications to these Terms of Use, Guidelines or Rules will be effective upon posting of the revisions. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SITES FOLLOWING POSTING OF ANY CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS AND IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE USING THE SITES. For this reason, you should frequently review these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and Rules and any other applicable policies, including their dates, to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Sites and your participation in the Community.

The short and sweet version:

When you use our Sites, you agree to our rules. And since they’re our Sites and our rules, we can change them whenever we want.

Any other use of materials on the Sites – including reproduction for purposes other than those permitted above, modification, distribution, republishing, transmission, display or performance – without the prior written permission of Humanist Beauty is strictly prohibited.

The short and sweet version:

We work hard making the content on our Sites, so we’re protective of what happens to it. Unless you’re placing an order, engaging in Community, or shopping, you need permission from us to use our content elsewhere.

3. Trademarks

humanistbeauty.com and all page headers, custom graphics and button icons are service marks, trademarks, and/or trade dress of Humanist Beauty and may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not offered by Humanist Beauty in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers. All other trademarks, product names and company names or logos cited herein are the property of their respective owners.

The short and sweet version:

Like we said in #2, our Site content is ours. Don’t use it in negative or malicious ways, or to advertise products or services we don’t sell.

4. Product Information

The products displayed on our Sites can be ordered and delivered only within the U.S. and certain select countries. See the International Shipments section of humanistbeauty.com for more information. Humanist Beauty products displayed on the Sites may be available in select retail stores in the U.S. and certain foreign markets. All prices displayed on humanistbeauty.com are quoted in U.S. Dollars and are valid and effective only in the U.S. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by Humanist Beauty.

All material and information presented by Humanist Beauty is intended to be used for personal, educational or informational purposes only. The statements made about products have not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any other government agency and the results reported, if any, may not necessarily occur in all individuals. The statements and products sold through Humanist Beauty are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any condition or disease. If any minor uses any goods or product from Humanist Beauty it should be only after the legal or parental guardian has discussed the product with the minor’s doctor.

Some products sold on our Sites contain cannabinoids, including CBD, sourced from hemp that is federally compliant in accordance with the 2014 US Farm Bill. The level of THC contained in any final formula sold on our Sites is below 0.3% dry weight. Despite these facts, sale of CBD products is not legal in certain US states and international regions or may be legal by age. If you reside in an area where the sale of CBD products is prohibited, or if you are under the legal age limit for CBD product purchasing in your region, you are forbidden to make a purchase of any CBD-containing product from our Sites.

Some products sold on our Sites are made with full-spectrum whole hemp distillate and CBD isolate. That means that they may contain high levels of the cannabinoid CBD and detectable levels of other cannabinoids such as THC, THCA, d-8 THC, CBDA, CBN, CBC, CBCA, CBG, CBGA, CBL, THCV, THCVA, CBDV, CBDVA. They also may contain detectable levels of various terpenes including α-Pinene, Camphene, β-Pinene, β-Myrcene, 3-Carene, R-Limonene, Eucalyptol, Ocimene, γ-Terpinene, Terpinolene, Linalool, Fenchol, (+)-Pulegone, Menthol, Borneol, α-Terpineol, Geraniol, β-Caryophyllene, α-Humulene, Valencene, Farnesene, trans-Nerolidol, cis -Nerolidol, Guaiol, α-Bisabolol, Eicosane, Camphor, L-Fenchone, Sabinene, β-Caryoph. Ox., Phytol, a-Phellandrene, and others.

Effective January 3, 2020, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment added Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) to the list of chemicals known to the state of California to cause reproductive toxicity (developmental endpoint) for purposes of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). Any company with 10 or more employees operating or selling products within the State of California must comply with the requirements of Proposition 65. To comply, businesses are: (1) prohibited from knowingly discharging listed chemicals into sources of drinking water; and (2) required to provide a “clear and reasonable” warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical. A Proposition 65 warning means that the business has evaluated the exposure and has concluded that it exceeds the “no significant risk level,” or that the business is providing a warning based on the presence of a “listed” chemical without actually evaluating the exposure. At the time of this writing, Humanist Beauty is a company doing business in the state of California made up of less than 10 people and so is not required to issue Prop 65 warning labels on its products. That being said, we are being transparent here and informing you that some final finished formulas may contain trace amounts of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) and could therefore pose a health risk according to the State of California.

Statements on this website have not been evaluated by the FDA. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. CANNABIDIOL USE WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING MAY BE HARMFUL. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

It is your responsibility to carefully review the ingredient lists and Certificate of Analysis (COA) pertaining to the product’s batch you are purchasing to determine your acceptance of its cannabinoid and terpene profile before making a purchase. By using our Sites, you agree that Humanist Beauty shall not be liable for medical injury that may result from willing and neglectful product use.

All products should be used strictly in accordance with their instructions, precautions and guidelines. You should always check the ingredients of products to avoid potential allergic reactions. Use of our Sites is not meant to serve as a substitute for professional medical advice: our Sites are solely online stores for specialty beauty products. Please consult with your own physician or health care practitioner regarding the use of any goods, products or information received from our Sites before using or relying on them. Your physician or health care practitioner should address any and all medical questions, concerns and decisions regarding the possible treatment of any medical condition. Humanist Beauty does not give or intend to give any answers to medical related questions and our Sites do not replace any medical professional or medical resource. Humanist Beauty does not represent itself as a physician nor is this implied. No prescription medications or medical treatments are intentionally provided on the Sites. IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF MEDICAL ATTENTION, CALL 911 OR YOUR PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY.

The products available on our Sites and the Community, including any samples Humanist Beauty may provide to you, are for your personal use only. You may not sell or resell any products you purchase or otherwise receive from Humanist Beauty. Humanist Beauty reserves the right, with or without notice, to cancel or reduce the quantity of any order to be filled or products to be provided to you that may result in a violation of these Terms of Use, as determined by Humanist Beauty in its sole discretion.

Except where prohibited by law, Humanist Beauty may limit the number of products available for purchase.

The short and sweet version:

Our products and samples are for personal use, not for resale. That’s why we have a limit on how much you can purchase.

We’ve taken great care to make sure that the information you read about our products is accurate, but we’re not doctors. Nothing on our Sites should be interpreted as medical advice. If you have questions about particular products, their ingredients, or their effects, you should talk to a real doctor or health care provider.

5. Color Information

While Humanist Beauty has tried to accurately display the colors of products, the actual colors you see will depend on your monitor and may not be accurate.

6. Responsibility for your Content

You are solely responsible for all content that you upload, post, email or otherwise transmit via or to the Sites, through the Community or otherwise, including the submission of product Ratings & Reviews and all other data, profile information, documents, text, software, applications, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, forum postings, comments, questions, answers or other materials (collectively, “Content”). We will not accept Content from you unless you are a registered user of the Sites and a member of Community.

7. Your Use of Content on the Sites and Limitation of Liability

Humanist Beauty provides the Sites and the Community and all other applications and services on the Sites as a forum only.

Any Content, if displayed, is displayed for entertainment and informational purposes only.

Humanist Beauty cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using the Community, you may be exposed to Content that may be offensive, indecent or objectionable and Humanist Beauty shall not be liable for any such Content and that the risk of harm or damage from the foregoing rests entirely with you. Under no circumstances will Humanist Beauty be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for (i) any errors or omissions in any Content; or (ii) any loss or damage (including, without limitation, personal injury or property damage) of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed or otherwise transmitted via or to the Sites or through the Community. The preceding sentence does not apply to New Jersey residents.

Humanist Beauty reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Content. When using the Community, you may not disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, cause a screen to “scroll” faster than other users are able to type, or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users’ ability to engage in real time exchanges.

The short and sweet version:

Take what other users post with a grain of salt; they may have opinions you disagree with, their reviews may be biased, or they may be having a bad day. Interacting with all the content on our Sites is at your own risk. We’re not responsible for services or products offered by others.

Please only post content that a) you have the rights to post, b) does not violate anyone else’s rights, and c) is fair and truthful. We are not responsible if others don’t abide by these rules.

23. Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:

WE BOTH AGREE TO ARBITRATE: You and Humanist Beauty agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Humanist Beauty’s intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights). Under such circumstances Humanist Beauty may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Site, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.

WHAT IS ARBITRATION: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.

ARBITRATION PROCEDURES: The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in this Agreement to Arbitrate, the rules set forth in this Agreement to Arbitrate will govern. The JAMS Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. To initiate arbitration, you or Humanist Beauty must do the following things:

(1) Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at http://www.jamsadr.com.

(2) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee to your local JAMS office.

(3) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules, except that for claims of less than $1,000, you will be obligated to pay $25 and Humanist Beauty will pay all other administrative costs and fees. In addition, for claims of less than $1,000, Humanist Beauty will reimburse you for the $25 fee if the arbitrator rules in your favor. Arbitration under this agreement shall be held in the United States county where you live or work, Delaware, or any other location we mutually agree to, subject to Delaware law. The arbitration may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

AUTHORITY OF ARBITRATOR: The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Humanist Beauty, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Humanist Beauty.

NO CLASS ACTIONS: You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and you may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.

WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court.

In the event any litigation should arise between you and Humanist Beauty in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND HUMANIST BEAUTY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.

OPT-OUT OF AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing Humanist Beauty at info@humanistbeauty.com and providing the requested information as follows: (1) Your Name; (2) the URL of Terms of Use and Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes; (3) Your Address; (4) Your Phone Number; (5) and clear statement that you wish to opt out of this arbitration provision in the Terms of Use. The Opt-Out Notice must be emailed no later than 30 days after the date you first accept the Terms of Use by using the website.

24. Choice of Law/Forum Selection

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflict of law rules. For any action where the Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, you further expressly consent and agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of a court of competent jurisdiction located in Delaware.

25. Severability

The provisions of these Terms of Use are intended to be interpreted in a manner which makes them valid, legal, and enforceable. In the event any provision is found to be partially or wholly invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be modified or restricted to the extent and in the manner necessary to render it valid, legal, and enforceable. It is expressly understood and agreed between the parties that such modification or restriction may be accomplished unilaterally by Humanist Beauty, or alternatively, by disposition of an arbitrator or a court of law. If such provisions cannot under any circumstances be so modified or restricted, they shall be excised from the Terms of Use without affecting the validity, legality or enforceability of any of the remaining provisions.
