This message program is a service of Boyfriend Perfume, located at 5670 Wilshire Blvd 11th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90036.
- General. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Boyfriend Perfume in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Boyfriend Perfume agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to these messaging terms and conditions ("Messaging Terms") or your receipt of text messages from Boyfriend Perfume or its service providers will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Messaging Terms, or your receipt of text messages from Boyfriend Perfume or its service providers whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of when a claim arises. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE MESSAGING TERMS, YOU AND BOYFRIEND PERFUME ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THESE MESSAGING TERMS SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
- Exceptions. Notwithstanding subsection (a) above, nothing in these Messaging Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of you or Boyfriend Perfume to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
- Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Boyfriend Perfume will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Messaging Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Boyfriend Perfume. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
- Notice; Process. If you or Boyfriend Perfume intends to seek arbitration, then the party seeking arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail ("Notice"). Boyfriend Perfume address for Notice is: $CompanyAddress, Attn: Chief Executive
Officer. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). You and Boyfriend Perfume will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if you and Boyfriend Perfume do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Boyfriend Perfume may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Boyfriend Perfume must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. (e) Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Messaging Terms, Boyfriend Perfume will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. If the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Boyfriend Perfume for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. You and Boyfriend Perfume agree that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from you or Boyfriend Perfume made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
- No Class Actions. YOU AND BOYFRIEND PERFUME AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Boyfriend Perfume agree otherwise in a signed writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
- Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these
Messaging Terms, if Boyfriend Perfume makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Boyfriend Perfumeaddress for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Boyfriend Perfumeaddress for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and Boyfriend Perfume.
- Enforceability. If an arbitrator decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of
the limitations of subsection (f) above (addressing class, representative and consolidated proceedings) as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and brought in court. If any other provision of these Messaging Terms is found to be unenforceable, the applicable provision shall be deemed stricken and the remainder of these Messaging Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
When you make a purchase, we do not collect your payment information. We used companies specialized in collecting and processing your payment information, including Shopify. Access Pursuant to your reasonable request, we will provide you or a third-party you specify with a list of all of the personal data that Boyfriend Perfume has collected, in a form that is portable to you. Depending upon your geographic location, we may charge a small fee to collect this information in a portable fashion. Similarly, upon your request, we will make corrections to our records of your personal data.
As described above, some of the online services available through our Site allow you to provide personal data. This data is stored and processed in the United States. We keep your data only for as long as we have a legitimate business purpose, and only that data required for the particular purpose for which we collected the data. We will retain your data while you have an active relationship with Boyfriend Perfume, including if you have signed up to receive our newsletter, opted in to receive marketing content, or affirmatively made requests of us that we, or our data processors are fulfilling. We will maintain your data for one year after that relationship ends, unless you request that we delete your information prior to the expiration of that period, which you may do at any time following the instructions below. If Boyfriend Perfume determines that it no longer requires your data for the purposes set forth above, including any legal purposes, it will delete your information without you making a request. If you would like us to delete all of your data (including any personal information gathered by our service providers) and/or place your name on our “do not contact” list, contact us at [email] and request that your information be deleted and/or that you be placed on our “do not contact” list. Please note that because names may be similar, you must include in your request all associated email addresses and phone numbers (if any) that you wish to be deleted in the body of the email. We reserve the right to contact you for administrative purposes to request more information in order to assist us in completing your request. We may also send you a confirmation email, once we have deleted your information. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete your information within thirty days from our active files, provided, however, that we may retain—for legal compliance purposes only—your request and associated email in a hashed format so that we do not inadvertently restore your information to our database. Please note that requests to update your personal information may take up to one month. You may also request that we stop processing your information without deleting it, and we will comply within five days of receipt of such a request.
Notwithstanding the above, Boyfriend Perfume will retain your information indefinitely if it believes in good faith that it has a legal obligation to do so.

Privacy of Children
The Site is a general audience website, intended for adult use. We do not market to, and do not knowingly collect any data from, children under sixteen (16) years of age.

Do Not Track
The Do-Not-Track Signal (“DNT”) is used by some web browsers to automatically request that a web application disable site tracking. Because the DNT often does not reflect the actual preferences of an individual consumer, our websites do not respond to the DNT. Instead, and in order to allow you to personalize your experience with our Site, you may elect not to receive marketing messages and/or have certain cookies placed on their browser, as discussed earlier in this Policy.
We take reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect unauthorized access, alteration or destruction of data located on and collected by our Site. Sensitive and private data exchange between the Site and their users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures. We exercise reasonable care to protect your non-public personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your nonpublic personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us while it is in transit. Once we receive your personal information, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect it.
