1. Acceptance of the Terms and Conditions
You must be an individual at least 18 years old to use the Service and must not have previously been removed or suspended from the Service for any reason. Certain plans or activities presented through the Service may have other age restrictions. By using the Service, you represent that (i) you are at least the minimum required age (in no case less than 18 years old) or and in any case that you are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms, and (ii) have not previously been removed or suspended from the Service. Further, by using or registering for the Service, you agree to abide by and comply with these Terms, and you acknowledge that you are accepting the benefit of the Service, subject to these Terms.
Allayya grants you permission to access and use the Service as set forth in these Terms and consistent with the intended features of the Service, provided that you do not reproduce, modify, publicly display, publicly perform, or distribute any part of the Service, including any materials obtained from or included within the Service and you do not engage in any of the prohibited uses described below.
3. Account Information & Responsibilities of Registered Users
A. Account information: In order to access some features of the Service, you will be required to create an account. You hereby represent and warrant that the information you provide to Allayya upon registration, and at all other times, will be true, accurate, current, and complete. You also hereby represent and warrant that you will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up to date at all times.
C. Password: As a registered User, you will have login information, including a username and password. Your account is personal to you, and you may not share your account information with, or allow access to your account by, any third party. As you will be responsible for all activity that occurs under your access credentials, you should preserve the confidentiality of your username and password. If you have any reason to believe that your account information has been compromised or that your account has been accessed by a third party, you agree to immediately notify Allayya by e-mail to support@Allayya.com. You are solely responsible for your own losses or losses incurred by Allayya and others (including other users) due to any unauthorized use of your account that occur prior to notifying Allayya that your account was compromised.
4. The Membership Contract Between You and Us
A. Subscription: By subscribing to Allayya, you agree and acknowledge that your membership has an initial and recurring bi-monthly payment charged at the then-current membership rate, for the goods and services that are delivered, for the term agreed by both parties. If you sign up for a Bi-monthly Plan, you have a minimum of 1 payment due on your commitment term before you can cancel your subscription. If you sign up for an Annual Plan (6 deliveries), you have 6 payments due on your commitment term before you can cancel your subscription. You accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation, including, where applicable, any charges processed by Allayya after the expiration date of your payment card.
B. Subscription renewal: By signing up for an Allayya subscription, you understand and agree that your credit card will be charged on a recurring basis. Furthermore, you understand and agree that you will be charged at the then-current subscription rate and that any promotional codes used as a new customer at signup do not transfer or apply to your renewal fee. You will be automatically billed on the 16th day of the next billing month (January, March, May, July, September, and November). Allayya will automatically submit bi-monthly charges to your chosen payment method without further authorization from you until you provide prior notice at any time that you wish to terminate this authorization or to change your payment method. You agree that such notice will not affect charges submitted before Allayya reasonably could act. Allayya does not accept any responsibility or offer refunds for ‘auto renewals’ proceeding if you have failed to cancel your subscription before your next renewal date.
YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT AND, IF YOU CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP BEFORE THE END OF AN EXISTING SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THAT SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD. IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP PRIOR TO YOUR SUBSCRIPTION RENEWAL, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR A NEW SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD OF THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME.
C. Subscription cancellation: You may cancel your membership at any time before the renewal date by logging onto your account and following the cancellation procedures. If at the time of cancellation you still have boxes left to be delivered, you will be charged for them, and the boxes will be shipped to you according to our regular bi-monthly shipping schedule. Then, upon completion of your original commitment, your subscription will automatically be canceled. For example, if you sign up for an Annual Plan (6 bi-monthly deliveries) and have paid for 4 boxes so far, you will be charged for another 2 boxes before your subscription finishes. This does not initiate any kind of refund if you fail to cancel before the renewal date. Your subscription is continuous until you cancel and, if you cancel your membership before the end of an existing subscription commitment period, you will be charged for the remainder of that subscription period. By Allayya stating you can cancel at any time before the renewal date, this directly refers to the renewal and not your commitment term.
Any discounts given on the first month of a new subscription are applied on the assumption that you stay subscribed for the entire initial commitment period. If you request to cancel before the end of the initial commitment you no longer qualify for any discount on any boxes and must pay the one-month rate for any box you received a discount on.
By subscribing to Allayya, you agree it is your responsibility to cancel your own subscription by logging into your account profile. Allayya does not accept the responsibility to cancel your account on your behalf. It is up to the customer alone to cancel the subscription. Cancellations must be completed before the next renewal date.
You must cancel your subscription 24 hours before the renewal date. IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL PRIOR TO THE RENEWAL DATE OF A CALENDAR MONTH, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THAT MONTH’S SERVICE AND YOU WILL RECEIVE AN ALLAYYA BOX.
D. Returns and refunds: For re-billable Bi-monthly and Annual Plans, as well as for one-time Mystery Boxes, all sales are final. Due to the custom nature of Allayya boxes, we are not able to accept returns, or offer refunds, credit, exchanges, or transfers after your order has shipped. If you dispute a payment, your account will be placed on hold. We are not responsible for subscription boxes missed during the hold. If you receive a defective product or a product is missing in your Allayya box, please contact our customer service at email@example.com within 30 days of delivery. We will do our best to make it right.
E. Risk of loss: A shipping confirmation with your tracking number will be sent to the email address you provided at the time of order. Please track your shipment as Allayya is not responsible for lost or stolen packages. The merchandise purchased will be shipped by a third-party carrier. We deny all responsibility for the merchandise as soon as it leaves our warehouse. As a result, the risk of loss for such merchandise will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. Any dispute or claim must be resolved with the third-party carrier. If you file a claim with our carrier, you must report this as soon as possible so we may work with the carrier as well.
F. Changes to the prices and to Allayya Membership plans: We reserve the right to adjust pricing for our service or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms, any price changes or changes to your Allayya membership plans will take effect following notice to you.

You agree that Allayya shall not be liable to you or any third party for any such termination.

These remedies are in addition to any other remedies Allayya may have at law or in equity.

Your only remedy with respect to any dissatisfaction with (i) the Service, (ii) any of these Terms, (iii) any policy or practice of Allayya in operating the Service, or (iv) any content or information transmitted or made available through the Service, is to terminate your use of the Service. You may terminate your use by closing your account and discontinuing your use of any and all parts of the Service, or by providing Allayya with notice of termination at email@example.com.

You may not settle any matter without prior written consent from Allayya.
THE SERVICE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE SITE, SITE CONTENT, OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ALLAYYA), USER CONTENT, THIRD-PARTY CONTENT, AND ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, SERVICES, OR APPLICATIONS MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE”, “WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, USEFULNESS, THAT USE OF THE SERVICE WILL RESULT IN ANY INCOME OR PAYMENT, OR OTHERWISE. ALLAYYA MAKES NO WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY USER CONTENT, OR FOR THE ACTIONS OF ANY USERS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALLAYYA HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY ALLAYYA.
18. Limitation of Liability

19. Limitations; Basis of the Bargain
APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW FOR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, YOU AGREE THAT BECAUSE SUCH WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND ALLAYYA, AND ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND ALLAYYA, ALLAYYA’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ALLAYYA WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
20. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
A. Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Allayya in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and Allayya agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, which 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. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based on contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. You understand and agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Allayya are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
B. Exceptions. Notwithstanding subsection (A), we both agree that nothing herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
C. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Allayya will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these 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 Allayya.
Allayya may provide you with notices by electronic mail, regular mail, or postings on the Service, and you agree to electronic delivery of all such notices. If Notice is provided by electronic mail, notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after electronic mail is sent, unless Allayya is notified that the electronic mail address is invalid. If notice is provided by posting through the Service, then a notice will be deemed given upon such posting. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through the Service. In such a case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing.
These Terms, whether interpreted in a court of law or in arbitration, shall be governed by the laws of Texas without regard to conflict of law principles. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and Allayya agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Dallas County, Texas for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes. This is the entire agreement between you and Allayya relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes all previous communications, representations, understandings, and agreements, either oral or written, between you and Allayya with respect to the said subject matter. These Terms shall not be modified or waived except in a writing signed by both parties, or by a change to these Terms as provided in Section 14, above. In the event any of the provisions of these Terms are held unenforceable or invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provisions shall be deemed severed, and the remaining provisions thereof shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of Allayya to enforce, in any one or more instances, any of the provisions herein shall not be construed as a waiver of the prior or future performance of any such terms or conditions. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Allayya as a result of these Terms or use of the Service. You further acknowledge that by submitting User Content, no confidential, fiduciary, contractually implied, or another relationship is created between you and Allayya other than pursuant to these Terms. The Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Allayya without restriction, including by operation of law, merger, or sale of all or substantially all of the assets to which this agreement pertains. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of these Terms shall be void. The headings and captions in this Agreement are used for convenience only and are not to be considered in interpreting this Agreement.
