2. ACCOUNT, PURCHASES, SUBSCRIPTIONS, AND CANCELLATION
Purchases: There are three types of purchases you can make through the Website (“Purchase”): (1) a one-time purchase of a particular pair of socks (“Single Purchase”); (2) a subscription for you or a person designated by you, to receive a specified number of pairs of socks per month for a specified number of months (“Pay Once Subscription”); and (3) a subscription for you, or a person designated by you, to receive a specified number of pairs of socks per month until you cancel the subscription (“Pay Monthly Subscription”). For Single Purchases, you select the socks you will receive. For Pay Once Subscriptions and Pay Monthly Subscriptions, the socks you receive will be selected by us in our sole discretion. When making a Purchase, you can have the socks sent to you or designate a person other than yourself to receive the socks (“Designated Recipient”).
Pay Once Subscriptions: If you purchase a Pay Once Subscription, you pay for the all of the socks that will be delivered during the specified duration of the Pay Once Subscription at the time of purchase.
Pay Monthly Subscriptions: If you purchase a Pay Monthly Subscription, you will be charged (“Initial Payment”) the amount displayed at the time of checkout for the first order of socks in the Pay Monthly Subscription (“Subscription Cost”) . Thereafter, your Credit Card will be charged the Subscription Cost every month until you cancel the Pay Monthly Subscription as set forth below (“Renewal Payment”). The Renewal Payment will be charged to your Credit Card the same day of the month as the initial payment was made for every month during the Pay Monthly Subscription (“Renewal Payment Day”). For months with less than 31 days, if the Initial Payment was on the 29th, 30th, or 31st day of the month, the Renewal Payment will be moved up to the last day of that month. By way of example, if the Initial Payment is charged on January 31, the next Renewal Payment would be charged on February 28th (“Adjusted Renewal Payment”). If at any time the Pay Monthly Subscription Renewal Payment cannot be charged to your Credit Card because your Credit Card has expired, is suspended, or other reason related to your Credit Card or Credit Card provider, Sockgaim reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate or suspend your Pay Monthly Subscription or to charge your Credit Card later for the previous Renewal Payments which could not be charged once the issues with your Credit Card have been resolved or you have submitted a new valid Credit Card. If the Renewal Payment cannot be charged to your Credit Card due to a technical issue or error by Sockgaim, Sockgaim’s payment processor, or other reason outside the control of Sockgaim, Sockgaim may charge your Credit Card later for the previous Renewal Payment which could not be charged during the relevant month.
WELCOME Promo Code: Usage of the promotional code WELCOME to receive a free first month of socks is limited to a one-time, single use per person, per household. Valid for new customers only. Valid on Pay Monthly subscriptions only. Does not apply to Mean Girls or THE SIMPSONS subscriptions. All customers in violation of these terms are subject to cancellation at any time at Sockgaim discretion.
Subscriber Benefits: Subscriber Benefits are available to Pay Monthly Subscribers only. Does not apply to Mean Girls or THE SIMPSONS subscriptions, or pre-existing Pay Once Subscriptions. Benefits are subject to change at any time.
Cancellation of Pay Monthly Subscriptions: In order to cancel a Pay Monthly Subscription and no longer make a Renewal Payment (“Cancel”), you must notify Sockgaim by either: (1) logging in to your Account, selecting “Manage Your Account”, clicking “Cancel” next to any current Pay Monthly Subscription, selecting the reason for cancelling, and then clicking “Cancel Subscription” (“In-Account Termination”); or (2) sending a message via email to [email protected] saying that you want to cancel your Pay Monthly Subscription (“Email Cancellation”) (In-Account Cancellation and Email Cancellation, collectively (“Cancellation”)). In order to be effective, an Email Cancellation must include the order number for the Pay Monthly Subscription, name of the person paying for the subscription, name of the person receiving the subscription, and the address where the socks for the Pay Monthly Subscription are sent. Cancellation will be effective the following month so long as the Cancellation is received by sockgaim by 11:59:59pm AEST two days prior to the Renewal Payment or adjusted Renewal Payment date as the case may be (“Cancellation Deadline”). If Cancellation is not received by Sockgaim by the Cancellation Deadline, then Cancellation will be effective the following month. By way of example, if the Renewal Payment Day is the 15th of the month and Cancellation is received by Sockgaim on March 12th at 11:49pm AEST, there would be no further Renewal Payments charged. However, if the Cancellation was received on March 13th at 12:01am, Cancellation would be effective the following month and the last Renewal Payment would be charged on March 15th.

In order to purchase a Pay Monthly Subscription, you must create an account (“Account”). When creating an Account, you must provide all required information including your name, email address, a password, physical address, and credit card information for a valid credit card owned by you which will be used to make your Purchase (“Credit Card”). Only one (1) Account is permitted per email address. The information provided must be accurate and complete. The Account set up process will be complete once your Credit Card is successfully charged for your first Purchase. Customers who have purchased a Pay Monthly Subscription can change Account information, including the Credit Card associated with your Account, at any time via the Account page. If you change the Credit Card associated with your Account, it will change the Credit Card for all Pay Monthly Subscriptions associated with your Account.

3. RETURNS AND REFUNDS
Returns: We will replace any socks that are damaged during shipping or are otherwise defective at arrival (“Defective Socks”). The fact that you may not like how a particular pair of socks looks does not constitute a defect and is not a basis for replacement. We will also replace socks that do not fit (“Non-Fitting Socks”). In order to be replaced, Defective Socks must be unworn and Non-Fitting Socks may only have been worn once and may not show signs of multiple use and be returned within 45 days of the purchase date. We will attempt to replace Defective Socks with the same socks, but reserve the right to replace them with different socks at our sole discretion. For children’s Non-Fitting Socks, we will attempt to replace them with the same sock in a different size, but reserve the right to replace them with different socks at our sole discretion. For men’s and women’s Non-Fitting Houdini (“No-Show”) Socks, we will attempt to replace them with the same sock in a different size, but reserve the right to replace them with different socks at our sole discretion. For all other adult socks, as there is only one size, we will replace them with different socks. To Return Defective Socks or Non-Fitting Socks and have them replaced, send us an email at [email protected] and we will send you instructions on completing the return/replacement process.
Upon receipt of the Required Return Information and any other required items, we’ll send out your replacement pair and won’t charge you for shipping.
Refunds: We will refund the cost of any Single Purchase, Pay Once Subscription, or initial payment of a Pay Monthly Subscription made in error, as long as we haven’t already shipped your socks before receiving your refund request. To request a refund you must send an email to [email protected] (“Refund Request”) containing the order #, your name, email address, and the type of Purchase that you want to cancel (“Required Refund Information”). If we receive the Refund Request before the socks for the relevant Purchase have shipped, we will issue a refund to your Credit Card for the amount of the Purchase. If we’ve already shipped the socks for a Pay Once Subscription, we’ll cancel any future socks for that Pay Once Subscription and refund the cost of the socks in the remaining months of the Pay Once Subscription, but will not refund the cost of the socks that have already shipped.
For purchasers of Pay Once Subscriptions, you may send a refund request up to 90 days after the original Purchase date (“Refund Request Deadline”) and we will cancel your Pay Once Subscription and issue a refund to your Credit Card for the amount paid for the remaining months. Refund Requests received after the Refund Request Deadline will not result in a refund.

9. DISPUTE RESOLUTION, ARBITRATION, GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
Dispute Resolution Generally: By using, making a purchase through, or otherwise interacting with this Website, you agree to that (a) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or in connection with the Website, or any goods or services purchased through the Website, shall be resolved individually without resort to any form of class action; (b) any claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to reasonable and actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, but in no event attorney’s fees; and (c) under no circumstances will you be permitted to obtain any award for, and you hereby waive all rights to claim, punitive, incidental, indirect or consequential damages and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased and any other damages, other than damages for reasonable and actual out-of-pocket expenses.
Arbitration: Any controversy or claim arising out of your use of the Website and/or any purchase made through the Website shall be settled by binding arbitration in a location determined by the arbitrator as set forth herein (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for claimant), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by the parties, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply Texas law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sockgaim will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor Sockgaim shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties. THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND/OR USE THIS APP IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
BY USING, MAKING A PURCHASE THROUGH OR OTHERWISE INTERACTING WITH THE WEBSITE, YOU AGREE THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (1) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE WEBSITE WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH ABOVE, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (2) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’ FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (3) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL YOU BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND YOU HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (4) YOUR REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY) AND YOU IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Governing Law & Jurisdiction: All disputes in connection with Website and any purchases made through the Website, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules thereof, and any matters or proceedings which are not subject to arbitration as set forth above and/or for entering any judgment on an arbitration award, shall take place in the State of Texas in the state or federal courts in Dallas County, Texas and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
The delay or omission by either party to enforce or exercise any terms or right pursuant to this Agreement will not impair any such term or right nor be construed to be a waiver thereof and will in no way affect the other party’s right later to enforce it. Any waiver by either party of any covenants, conditions or agreements to be performed by the other party will not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach thereof or any covenant, conditions or agreement herein contained.
