- Choice of Law, Arbitration Agreement, Jury Trial Waiver, Class Action Waiver, and Forum Selection
- Choice of Law. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the [Commonwealth of Pennsylvania], without regard to conflict of law provisions.
Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. We are always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at email@example.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party may seek to submit the dispute to arbitration by sending to the other party, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute.
Arbitration Agreement. Except for disputes brought in small claims court, all disputes between you and Elix arising out of, relating to, or in connection with the Website or this Agreement shall be exclusively settled through binding arbitration pursuant to the then-current rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) for consumer arbitration. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court and review by a court is limited. YOU AND ELIX AGREE THAT ANY SUCH ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, if the class-action waiver in the prior sentence is deemed invalid or unenforceable, however, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration. This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Elix makes any future change to this dispute resolution provision, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to Elix.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
- Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement while you are a User of the Website, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement).
- Forum Selection. If the arbitration procedure in this Section is found unenforceable or not to apply for a given dispute, then the parties agree that the proceeding must be brought exclusively in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction with geographic jurisdiction over [Yardley, Pennsylvania].

Information Elix Collects
Personal Information and Non-Identifying Information
We may ask you for personally identifiable information if, for example, you contact us requesting information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your full name, email address, physical address, and any other information that could be used to personally identify you.
We also collect other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your account with us that does not identify you (“Non-Identifying Information”). Non-Identifying Information includes, but is not limited to, your zip code (on its own), health data collected in the health assessment such as regulatarity of menstrual cycle, information about cycle-related symptoms, your general health, and individual preferences. Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your gender only or your viewing preferences).
We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Website, make product recommendations, facilitate and complete transactions for you, and respond to correspondence from you. We may also use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your account information.
We may also combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Website, and to analyze and understand how the Website is used.
When you visit the Website, whether you are logged in or just browsing without logging in, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. The information sent automatically by your browser is referred to as “Usage Data.” This Usage Data may include information such as the manufacturer and model of your device; your Internet Service Provider (ISP); your device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (or other device identifier), browser type, and operating system; referring/exit pages; clickstream data; Website access times and dates, pages of the Website that you visit, the time spent on those pages, and information you search for on the Website; and other statistics.
Usage Data also includes geolocation data. The Website collects and uses geolocation data to create segmentation and directive marketing.
We use this information for technical administration of the Website, including to monitor and analyze use of the Website, to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of the Website, and to better tailor the Website to Users’ needs.
Usage Data may be non-identifying or it may be associated with you. Whenever we associate Usage Data with Personal Information, we will treat it as Personal Information.
Collection of Information
We request certain information from you through the use of forms when you send us correspondence through the Website. We use forms in order to collect information about your health and wellness, including but not limited to information about your menstrual cycle, general health, lifestyle, diet, medical conditions.
Usage Data are collected automatically by the Website’s servers and software. For example, because the Website automatically collects Usage Data for all Users that visit the Website, your Website session will be tracked. You agree that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals, to maintain and support the Website generally.
Additionally, in some of our email messages, Elix may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Website. When a User clicks onto one of these URLs, the User will pass through our server before arriving at the destination Web page. Elix tracks this click-through data to help us determine User interest in certain subject matter and measure the effectiveness of these User communications. You can avoid being tracked in this way by not clicking text or graphic links in emails from Elix.
Finally, we may use clear gifs or pixel tags, which are tiny graphic images, in order: (i) to advise us of what parts of the Website Users have visited, (ii) to measure the effectiveness of any searches Users perform, and (iii) to enable us to send emails in a format that Users can read and tell us whether such emails have been opened in order to ensure us that we are sending messages that are of interest to Users.
Some Web browsers may be configured to send Do Not Track signals to websites, or users may use similar mechanisms, to indicate a user’s preference that certain web technologies not be used to track the user’s online activity. The Website does not accept or process such Do Not Track signals or similar mechanisms.
Please note that if you use any bulletin board, chat room, comment posting feature, or other public communication service, forum, or feature offered through the Website, or post any information available for viewing by other Users, any of the information that you share will be visible to other Users. The information that you make available can be read, used, and collected by other Users to send you unsolicited messages outside of the Website. Elix is not responsible for the manner in which the Personal Information that you decide to share will be used by other Users.
Use and Sharing of Information by Elix
The User information that Elix collects may be added to our databases and used for business purposes, including for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of Users’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement, or to customize the content and layout of the Website. In addition, Elix will, on occasion, send emails to you about the Website or third-party products. If you do not want to receive email from us, visit the “Opt Out” or “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any Elix email to remove yourself from continued receipt of such email messages.
Elix’s policy is not to share the User information it collects with third parties other than as specified below, or where a User expressly consents to our sharing of certain information with a third party. We may share User information with third parties under the following circumstances:
Business Partners and Vendors
We may employ third party companies and individuals for any of the following: to facilitate the Website; to provide the Website or portions of the Website on our behalf; to perform related services, including without limitation, maintenance services, database management, fulfillment, web analytics, and improvement of the features or functionality; or to assist us in analyzing how the Website is being used.
Your California Privacy Rights. California residents who have an established business relationship with Elix may choose to opt out of Elix’s disclosing personal information about them to third parties for marketing purposes. If you do not want us to share your personal information with such third parties, please send us your name, email address, street address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your opt out request will be processed within 30 days of the date it was received.
Under certain circumstances, you may avoid having Elix share your information with its business partners and vendors by not granting Elix permission to share your information. Not granting Elix permission to share your information with its business partners or vendors may limit your access to their services through the Website.
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, sell, or share assets in connection with, for example, a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, or bankruptcy. In such transactions, information about Users generally is often a transferred business asset. In the event that Elix itself or substantially all of Elix’s assets are acquired, information about our Users may be one of the transferred assets.
Compliance with Law and Protection of Elix and Others
Aggregate Site Use Information
We may release aggregate User information (without revealing any Personal Information about you) to advertisers and other third parties in order to promote or describe use of the Website.
By accessing and using the Website, you acknowledge and agree that Elix controls and operates all parts of the Website from its offices in the United States of America and that the Website is intended for use by Users located in the United States of America.

Changing or Deleting Your Information
All Users who have created an account on the Website may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by contacting us. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. For example, we use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption and firewalls to protect User information.
Please note that no security system is impenetrable. Accordingly, we do not guarantee the security of our databases, nor that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet or other network. Any information you transmit to Elix, you do at your own risk. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting through the Website in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Users must be at least thirteen (13) years of age to access and use the Website.
