Terms of Service

Effective Date: October 1, 2023

 

Welcome to www.absolutelyridiculous.com and our related websites that link to these Terms (collectively, the “Website”), owned and operated by Absolutely Ridiculous LLC, (“AR,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). Except as otherwise noted herein, these terms and conditions (the “Terms”) govern your use of the Website and AR’s services, applications, and content (collectively, the “Site”) and your purchase, receipt, or use of our products made available through the Site (collectively, the “Product(s)”).

 

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BECAUSE YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO FOLLOW AND BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SITE, OR PURCHASE, RECEIVE OR USE OUR PRODUCTS.

 

THESE TERMS CONTAIN A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.

 

AR reserves the right to change or modify these Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending you an email notification or providing notice through the Site. By continuing to access or use the Site in any way after such notice has been provided, you confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference. We encourage you to review the Terms frequently to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Site or order, receive or use the Products. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you are free to reject them, but in that case you may not access or use the Site or order, receive or use the Products.

You may use the Site only if you can form a binding contract with AR, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. In order to purchase from the Site you must complete the registration process to obtain a user account. You will be required to provide your name and e-mail address. You must provide complete and accurate information about yourself during the registration process and you have an ongoing obligation to update this information if and when it changes.

When you create an account, you will be required to create a user ID and password. You agree that you will never share your user ID and password with anyone else for any reason. You agree that only you will use your account. You agree to contact AR immediately in the event you become aware of unauthorized access to your account.

  2. Terms of Sale.
    1. Orders, Pricing and Payments. AR strives to communicate accurate pricing and product information but will not be held responsible for any pricing, typographical, or other errors. The displayed colors of the Products depend upon the monitor of the user, and AR cannot guarantee that the user’s monitor will accurately portray the actual colors of the Products. Products displayed may be out of stock or discontinued, and prices are subject to change. Your order is subject to cancellation by AR, in AR’s sole discretion. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the email and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. Unless otherwise agreed to by AR, payment must be received by AR prior to AR’s acceptance of an order. AR may process payment for and ship parts of an order separately. Purchases may not be resold or exported. Your purchase is for your own use, not for resale or export. Your purchase may not be sold, leased, or transferred to restricted countries, restricted end users, or for restricted end uses according to U.S. export and sanctions laws.
    2. Shipping. You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Please refer to our SHIPPING PAGE [https://absolutelyridiculous.com/pages/shipping-policy] for more information regarding shipping. 
    3. Taxes.  We will collect applicable sales tax on Products shipped to the states for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. Unless you provide AR with a valid and correct tax exemption certificate applicable to your purchase of Product and the Product ship-to location, you are responsible for sales and other taxes associated with the order.  
    4. Returns & Exchanges. Please refer to our RETURNS PAGE [https://absolutelyridiculous.com/pages/returns] for more information regarding returns and exchanges.

AR 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 this Agreement, as determined by AR in its sole discretion. Except where prohibited by law, AR may limit the number of Products available for purchase.
    6. Custom Orders. We offer unique, custom Products through our Site that are dependent on numerous factors out of our control such as global leather supply, current factory materials supply, and order volume, among other factors. Turnaround and delivery times for our custom Products on our Site may vary greatly and are estimates only. We cannot offer discounts or refunds for delays on our custom Products. By ordering a custom Product you indemnify and hold harmless AR from any and all claims related to delays.

      1. Membership Plans. AR provides a subscription service where we offer various subscription plans for the recurring delivery of our Products and/or other perks and benefits as applicable and further described in the membership plan program details (each purchase of any such plan, a “Subscription”) and may offer add-on or one-time Products for sale. Our Product offerings and available Subscription plans are described on our Site at the time of purchase, and are subject to change at any time prior to purchase. 
      2. AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OF SUBSCRIPTION. When you purchase a subscription, you expressly acknowledge and agree that (a) AR (or our third party payment processor) is authorized to charge you on a recurring basis (either annually or monthly as described in the chosen plan and as applicable and without notice to you unless required by applicable law), for the price of your chosen subscription (in addition to any applicable taxes and other charges set forth during the purchase process) for as long as your subscription continues, and (b) your subscription is continuous until you cancel it or we suspend or terminate the subscription. Instructions for canceling your subscription are described in section 2.6(c) below. The initial recurring charges and frequency of charges for your subscription will be set forth during the purchase process. The amount and frequency of which you are charged may vary depending on the preferences you select, and we may adjust such recurring charges from time to time in accordance with section 2.1 above.
      3. Cancellation policy. You may cancel your subscription at any time at least five (5) days prior to the order invoice date shown in your online account by cancelling through your online account or by emailing team@ariagloves.com.

The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

 

Payment for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the rules of the applicable arbitration administrator, provided, that AR will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party statutory attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided by law.  You are responsible for all other additional costs that you may incur in the arbitration including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and expert witness costs unless AR is otherwise specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law. If your claim is solely for monetary relief of $10,000 or less, and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing.

 

You and we agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in the party’s respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND AR AGREE THAT EACH MAY 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. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

 

Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, you or we may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court with jurisdiction or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect intellectual property rights ("intellectual property rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). You or we may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction to the extent such claims do not seek equitable relief.

 

You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to AR at the address identified in Section 16 below. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of (a) the “Effective Date” of these Terms as set forth above; or (b) your first date that you used the Services that contained any versions of the Terms that included this version of the mandatory arbitration and class action waiver, whichever is later. Otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of these paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, AR also will not be bound by them. If AR changes this ‘Arbitration’ section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Date of Last Revision” date above or in the date of AR's email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and AR in accordance with the provisions of this section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

 

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE ABOVE DISPUTE PROCEDURES SHALL BE YOUR SOLE REMEDY IN THE EVENT OF DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND AR REGARDING ANY ASPECT OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS) AND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO LEAD OR PARTICIPATE IN A LAWSUIT INVOLVING OTHER PERSONS, SUCH AS A CLASS ACTION.
