10. Payment Processing and Authorization
Once your payment is complete, you will then return to the Properties. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account in full at the time you place your order, including with respect to any pre-order.
We take reasonable care to make our Properties secure.

These details will only be used to process credit/debit card transaction which you have initiated. We do not store your credit card information on our Website but rely on Stripe to do so. See here for more information on how Stripe protects your information.

Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon dispatch of your order by Goop. If there is a problem charging your selected payment card, we may charge another valid payment card associated with your account.
By making an offer to purchase Products, you expressly authorize Goop to perform credit checks and, where deemed necessary, to transmit or to obtain your credit card information or credit report information (including any updated information) to or from third parties solely to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit/debit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorization and/or to authorize individual purchase transactions.

Your rights regarding pre-orders and waitlisted items are the same as those for any other purchase from Goop.
When you submit an order to us through the Properties, you agree that you do so expressly subject to these Terms at the date you submit your order. You are responsible for reviewing the latest Terms each time you submit an order.
Once you place an order, you will receive an e-mail acknowledging the details of your order. We will not be obligated to supply a Product to you until we have accepted your order for such Product by e-mail in a form called a “Confirmation of Order” stating that we are accepting your order. An e-mail, letter, fax or other acknowledgement of your order by us is purely for information purposes and does not constitute our acceptance of your order. When we send you an acknowledgement, we may give you an order reference number and details of the Product(s) you have ordered.
We may, in our discretion, refuse to accept an order from you for any reason, including if we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, the Product(s) you order are out of stock or do not satisfy our quality control standards or are withdrawn or you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out in these Terms.

Until the time when we accept your order, we reserve the right to refuse to process your order and you reserve the right to cancel your order. If you have cancelled your order before we have accepted it, or if we cancel your order at any time for any reason, then we will promptly refund any payment already made by you or your credit/debit card company to us for the order of the Product(s).

THE PROVIDERS WHOSE THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE PROPERTIES ARE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS AND NOT AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES OF GOOP.

26. Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and any dispute that may arise between you and Goop shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law and the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction).
27. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to us at [email protected] with “Arbitration Request” in the subject line. You may also contact us by mail at:
3019 Wilshire Blvd.
Santa Monica, CA 90403
Attn: General Counsel, Legal Department
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totalling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION. You agree to arbitrate with Goop only in your individual capacity and not as a representative or member of a class or in any consolidated or representative proceeding. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there shall be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or brought by a purported class representative. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration. For certain claims, like violations of these Terms or breaches of intellectual property covenants, we reserve the right to seek injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction. All arbitrations shall be initiated in Los Angeles County, California.
28. Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Goop of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition and any failure of Goop to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remainder of the Terms shall continue in effect.
These Terms and any rights and licenses granted hereunder may not be transferred or assigned by you. We may assign our rights under these Terms without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. It is the express wish to the parties that this agreement and all related documents be drawn up in English.
31. Entire Agreement
These Terms and the other agreements referred to herein constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and Goop with respect to the Properties and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to the Properties.
