RECURRING SUBSCRIPTIONS

When you purchase a Recurring Subscription, you will be asked to select deliveries on a monthly basis, bi-monthly basis (every other month), or quarterly basis (every three months, though not necessarily totaling four deliveries per calendar year, because your Subscription may not follow a calendar-quarter schedule, and, therefore, the term “quarterly” as used herein does not refer to calendar quarters).  Recurring Subscriptions commence on the date that you submit your first purchase order, and deliveries shall be made every month, every other month, or every three months, on approximately the same day of the month in which you submit such order. 

Recurring Subscriptions are automatically renewed on a monthly, bi-monthly (every other month), or quarterly basis, as applicable. 

By purchasing a Recurring Subscription, you agree and acknowledge that your Subscription has an initial and recurring payment charge at the then-current Subscription rate, you agree that Billie may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) to your chosen payment method without further authorization from you, until you provide notice to Billie that you wish to cancel your Subscription or to change your payment method. You further accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation, including, where applicable, any charges processed by Billie after the expiration date of your payment card.

Members may cancel their Recurring Subscriptions at any time by logging into their accounts and following the cancellation procedures, or by emailing us at hello@mybillie.com.  Visitors may cancel their Recurring Subscriptions at any time by emailing us at hello@mybillie.com

Billie reserves the right to change or discontinue Recurring Subscriptions at our discretion. We may make these changes at any time, with or without notice. Your continued participation in a Recurring Subscription will constitute your acceptance of this Agreement including the automatic renewal provisions above. 

GIFT SUBSCRIPTIONS

Gift Subscriptions are Subscriptions purchased by an individual as a gift for another individual.  The purchaser shall select the duration and frequency of delivery of the Gift Subscription, which shall be either: (a) three (3) deliveries over the course of a six (6) month period (deliveries bi-monthly), or (b) six (6) deliveries over the course of a twelve (12) month period (deliveries bi-monthly).  Gift Subscriptions expire at the end of such six (6) month or twelve (12) month period, as applicable, and are not automatically renewed.  The purchaser shall prepay for the entire duration of the Subscription at the time of purchase, at the then-current Subscription rate.  Neither the purchaser nor the recipient of a Gift Subscription has the ability to cancel such Gift Subscription once it has been ordered, and all prepaid fees are non-refundable.

We reserve the right to revoke your Subscription at any time as a result of a violation of the Agreement.

6. Fraud Protection

As part of our order processing procedures, we may screen received orders for fraud or other types of unauthorized or illegal activity. We reserve the right to refuse to process an order due to suspected fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity. If we suspect fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity, we may reject your order or we may contact you at the phone number or email address you provided to confirm your order.

16. Governing Law

The laws of the State of New York shall govern this Agreement without regard to conflict of laws provisions.

THE SECTIONS BELOW TITLED “DISPUTES” AND “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER.  THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.  PLEASE READ THEM.

17. DISPUTES

Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to, or use of, the Site or the Content, to the products you purchase through the Site (including a Subscription), or to your relationship to Billie shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in New York, New York; provided, however, that to the extent that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of New York (as set forth in Section 18 below). Arbitration under this Agreement will be conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding and may be entered into as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement will be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class action proceedings or otherwise. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of this Site or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award.

18. CLASS ACTION WAIVER

You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.  YOU AND BILLIE AGREE THAT EACH MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Billie agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.

19. Equitable Relief

You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of New York, Borough of Manhattan for purposes of any such action by us.

20. Additional Terms and Conditions

You agree that additional terms and conditions may apply to specific products, orders or your use of certain portions of the Site, including membership reward programs (such as the Pink Tax Rebate program) (“Additional Terms”), which Additional Terms are incorporated into and made part of this Agreement by reference. If there is a conflict between this Agreement and the Additional Terms, this Agreement shall control.
