We offer various subscription membership plans (each, a “Membership”). A membership consists of a seasonal Box of some products chosen by Kura Inc., at its sole discretion. Boxes are sent out as a one time shipment ("Just Once") or as a quarterly shipment ("Every 3 months").
If you sign up for a Membership with shipments Every 3 months, you will be immediately billed the Membership price (as a non-refundable minimum purchase) and that season’s Box will be the first box you receive. Thereafter, your credit card will be charged the Membership price up to four weeks in advance of the subsequent seasonal box shipment date, and every season thereafter (so, four times a year).
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR MEMBERSHIP WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW EACH SEASON (I.E. CALENDAR QUARTER) UNLESS YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR TERMINATE IT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS.
Customers may cancel at any time, subject to the time frames below. We do not place “holds” on Memberships.
In order to cancel your Membership, you must do one of the following:
(a) email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicate that you wish to cancel and follow the instructions that we send you in response;
(b) log into My Account, navigate to Go to Account Settings, choose “Cancel”, and follow the instructions;
There are no cancellation fees. Cancellations must be effected prior to the billing date of the Membership renewal. For Seasonal Memberships, this means that you must cancel before the billing date for the next Season.
PRICING AND PROMOTIONS
Pricing for Memberships can be found on Kura Skin’s then-current pricing page located on the Site at: https://kuraskin.com/pages/plan. The price that we will charge you for the Membership will be the price as posted on the Site on the date you first sign-up for a Membership to the Site. We reserve the right to change prices for Memberships at any time, and do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of promotions or price decreases.
We may offer additional products that Members may add to that season’s Box (“Extras”). Extras are billed approximately at the same time as payments for Seasonal Boxes. Extras may be shipped at the same time as your regular Boxes.
You are solely responsible for the payment of state and local sales taxes that apply to your order where we elect or are required to collect and remit such taxes. We have the right to charge you for any taxes that we believe we are required to pay or collect related to your purchase.
Kura Skin may offer certain promotional codes for discounts. Promotional codes are non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash, credit, or toward previous purchases. There is no cash alternative. Furthermore, promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotional discount, and must be redeemed by the date published, if provided. Lost promotional codes cannot be replaced. Limit one promotional code per customer. Promotional codes are void where prohibited. Any promotional program may be terminated or modified by Kura Skin at any time in its sole discretion.
We encourage Members to participate in the Kura Skin Referral Program (“The Program”) to earn credits toward future purchases (“Referral Rewards”) when they invite friends to become Members and those friends make a qualifying purchase from Kura Skin.
As part of our Referral Program, the advocate (“You”), who is an existing Kura Skin Member, may share a $20 off online coupon code (“Reward Code”) with one or more friends using the link contained on the friend offer landing page.
You will receive a $20 off online coupon code (the “Reward Code”) via email 15 days after each referred person successfully completes a purchase at the Site www.kuraskin.com.
The Reward Code is for one-time use only. You will receive only 1 Reward Code per friend introduced, regardless of the number of purchases that this friend subsequently makes. To receive multiple Reward Codes, you must introduce multiple friends.
Only 1 reward code may be used on any purchase. The referred person (“Referred Customer”) and the Referrer cannot be the same person. The Referred Customer must have a different email address, along with different billing and shipping information from the Referrer. The Referred Customer must make a purchase within 30 days of issue using the Referral Code at the Site www.kuraskin.com. It is for one-time use only.
Referral Rewards have no monetary value and may not be redeemed for cash or any cash equivalent including but not limited to gift cards, certificates, or refunds. Referral Rewards are personal to the Member and are not transferable and may not be auctioned, traded, bartered or sold, whether by operation of law or otherwise. Upon termination of the Program or any portion thereof for any reason, or upon cancellation of a Member’s account for any reason, any unredeemed Credits (including without limitation any unapplied credits) accumulated by the Member are forfeited.
This Referral Program is subject to modification or termination at any time without notice in our sole discretion.

All payments shall be made by your selected Payment Method in advance prior to shipping the Products. If you do not pay on time or if your Payment Method cannot be charged for any reason, Kura Skin reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your account and Membership and terminate these Terms of Service.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
You understand that to the extent permitted under applicable law, in no event will Kura Skin or our officers, employees, directors, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, or licensors be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of revenues, profits, goodwill, use, data, lost opportunities, or business interruptions or other intangible losses (even if such parties were advised of, knew of or should have known of the possibility of such damages, and notwithstanding the failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy), arising out of or related to your use of or access to, or the inability to use or to access, the Services, regardless of whether such damages are based on contract, tort (including negligence and strict liability), warranty, statute, or otherwise. We will not be liable for any damages arising from the products or for any information appearing on any other site linked to our Services. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the Services, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue use of the Services. In any event, our total liability to you for all claims arising from or related to the Services is limited, in aggregate, to the total amount of your orders in the three (3) months prior to the date of the event giving rise to our alleged liability. You hereby acknowledge that the preceding paragraph shall apply to all content, Products and Services available through the Site and that Kura Skin would not have provided the Products and Services but for your agreement with this liability limitation.
Because some states or jurisdictions may not allow limitation on the duration of implied warranties, or limitations on or exclusions of consequential or incidental damages, certain provisions of the foregoing paragraph may not apply to you.
Without limiting the foregoing, under no circumstances will we or our licensors be held liable for any delay or failure in performance resulting directly or indirectly from acts of nature, forces, or causes beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, internet failures, computer equipment failures, telecommunication equipment failures, other equipment failures, electrical power failures, strikes, labor disputes, riots, insurrections, civil disturbances, shortages of labor or materials, fires, floods, storms, explosions, acts of god, war, governmental actions, orders of domestic or foreign courts or tribunals, or non-performance of third parties.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Service and Kura Skin will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. Kura Skin reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.
ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS WAIVER; WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY.
Please read this Section ("Arbitration Agreement") carefully. It is part of your contract with us and affects your rights. It contains procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
Time Limits. If either party pursues arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.
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 will be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically subject only to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between the parties in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, the parties waive all rights to a jury trial, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. All claims and disputes within the scope of this arbitration agreement must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class basis, and claims of more than one customer or user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or consolidated with those of any other customer or user.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, will be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph will not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts will be of no force and effect and will be severed and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Survival. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party's patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets will not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit exclusively to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Los Angeles County, California for such purpose.
Kura Skin may issue a warning, temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate any Member’s right to use or access all or any part of the Site or Services including any account thereon, without notice, for any reason in Kura Skin’s sole discretion, including without limitation breach of this Agreement, Kura Skin’s belief that such access would violate any applicable law, rule or regulation or would be harmful to the interests of, or potentially cause financial loss or legal liability to Kura Skin or another user of the Services, or no reason at all. If we terminate for no reason your right to access the Site, we will fulfill our obligations to you related to any order outstanding at the time of termination. If you terminate your account, you will remain liable under these Terms for any purchase made prior to termination. If we terminate your right to access the Site, these Terms will terminate and all rights you have to access the Site will immediately terminate.
These Terms of Service constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all prior oral or written understandings, communications or agreements. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms of Service, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the Terms of Service will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect. Kura Skin will not be responsible for failures to fulfill any of its obligations due to causes beyond its control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials. These Terms may not be modified by an oral statement by a representative of Kura Skin. A failure of or delay in Kura Skin exercising or enforcing any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms of Service, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the Terms of Service will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect.
The Site is controlled and offered by Kura Skin from the United States of America. Kura Skin makes no representations that the Site is appropriate for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Site from other locations do so at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with local law. You consent to the processing in the United States of America of information you provide to us.
