- MIA SUBSCRIPTIONS AND PURCHASES.
Subscriptions; Automatic Renewal; Changes. Please see our Website for a current description of the subscriptions we offer through the Services (“Subscriptions”), how to place an order for a Subscription and our policies with respect to changing or cancelling a Subscription. Before submitting your order for a Subscription, you must create your assortment of products and select the quantity and frequency. Note that Subscriptions are automatically renewed and will continue for renewal periods of the same duration as the Subscription term originally selected at the then-current price (or for the term and price as subsequently modified by you), unless you have cancelled such Subscription. You acknowledge that Subscriptions have an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. For a given Subscription, you can change your preferences in your Account, where you can adjust, skip or cancel such Subscription. Any changes must be made at least seventy-two (72) hours before your next ship date. Our Site will let you know if you can still modify the next shipment before it ships.
One-Time Purchases. Please see our Website for a current description of the products you can purchase through the Services (“Purchases”). If you choose to make a Purchase, such Purchase will be shipped to you with the next shipment of your Subscription.
Order Processing. All orders are subject to acceptance by us. We may choose not to accept your order for any reason without liability to you, and MIA reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order or transaction at any time, in its sole discretion. For example, we may choose to not process or to cancel your order when a product is out of stock or has been mispriced or if we suspect the request is fraudulent. If we decide not to process your order or if we cancel all or a portion of your order, MIA will either not charge you for the applicable item(s) or provide you with a refund for the applicable item(s).
Risk of Loss. The risk of loss and title for all products you order passes to you upon our delivery to the carrier (such as FedEx, UPS, or USPS).
Returns and Exchanges. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our product, we cannot accept returns or exchanges. We understand that relationships don’t always work out and we hope you’ll come back to try our new products.
Payment. In order to submit an order through the Services, you must use a valid credit card or other payment method accepted by the Services (which may change from time to time in MIA’s sole discretion) (your “Payment Method”), with full authority to use it. MIA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity and/or eligibility to process your order. Please note that any payment terms presented to you in the process of placing an order through the Services are deemed part of this Agreement. We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to allow you to pay for orders through the Services. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to purchase products through the Services, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for your purchase in accordance with your Payment Method and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your Payment Method. Such charges for your purchase may include shipping fees and state and local sales tax, the amount of which varies due to factors including the type of item purchased and the shipping destination. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS, WE MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY US) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE WE REASONABLY COULD ACT. TO TERMINATE YOUR AUTHORIZATION OR CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD, GO TO YOUR ACCOUNT.
Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your applicable order upon demand.
Current Information Required. YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR PAYMENT METHOD CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY US OR OUR PAYMENT PROCESSOR IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR SUBSCRIPTION THROUGH THE SERVICES.
Change in Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to your Payment Method varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), you have the right to receive, and we shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination of a Subscription reaffirms that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method for that Subscription. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially selected to order the Subscription.
Promotional Credits. From time to time, MIA may choose to issue a certain number of credits (“Promotional Credits”) to your Account (the “Program”). In addition to any specific rules and descriptions for each issuance of Promotional Credits, which are incorporated herein, the following terms apply. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD NOT ACCEPT PROMOTIONAL CREDITS THROUGH THE SITE.
Promotional Credits, the number of Promotional Credits, and the redemption value of Promotional Credits and any restrictions on the use of Promotional Credits, are issued at MIA’s sole discretion to the fullest extent of the law. Any Promotional Credits issued shall be automatically redeemed at checkout on your next shipment(s) through the Services, until the Promotional Credits are fully redeemed. You acknowledge that even if Promotional Credits are redeemed on a shipment, you may still need to pay for expedited shipping if you choose expedited shipping for such shipment and you do not have enough Promotional Credits to cover the full cost. Any remaining balance on the purchase amount for a given shipment after Promotional Credits are fully redeemed is your sole responsibility. You cannot choose when (or when not) to redeem any Promotional Credits in your Account.
To the fullest extent of the law, Promotional Credits automatically expire and are forfeited at the date that is three (3) years after the date such Promotional Credits are issued AND THERE IS NO DORMANCY FEE. Promotional Credits are only valid for redemption on the Services and are void where prohibited or restricted by law. Promotional Credits are promotional in nature and are not legal tender. Promotional Credits are non-transferable, non-exchangeable, have no value and cannot be used for cash back or sold. MIA reserves the right, in its sole discretion at any time, to void any Promotional Credits, or to cancel, suspend, terminate or modify any aspect of the Program, with or without notice to you. MIA also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your participation in the Program at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately, including without limitation if MIA deems or suspects any violation of these terms and conditions, cheating, fraud or tampering with the operation of Program.
By participating in the Program, you agree to release and hold harmless MIA, and its affiliates, suppliers, partners, parent companies, subsidiaries, employees, contractors, directors, officers, agents, and representatives, from any and all economic liabilities, claims, damages, loss, harm, costs or expenses, including without limitation property damage, that arise from or relate to in any way the Program and/or use or misuse of Promotional Credits. THIS SUB-SECTION 6.k(iii) APPLIES ONLY TO ECONOMIC DAMAGES AND DOES NOT APPLY TO CLAIMS OF FRAUD OR PERSONAL INJURY.
Other Credits. From time to time, MIA may choose to issue a certain number of non-promotional credits (“Other Credits”) to your Account. Other Credits include, without limitation, credit issued to you for any returns (that we may reject or accept in our sole direction and that we generally do not accept) or for credit issued to you for a minor error with our third-party vendors or carriers. In addition to any specific description of the issuance of Other Credits, which are incorporated herein, the following terms apply. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD NOT ACCEPT OTHER CREDITS THROUGH THE SITE.
Other Credits, the number of Other Credits, and the redemption value of Other Credits, and any restrictions on the use of Other Credits are issued at MIA’s sole discretion to the fullest extent of the law. Any Other Credits issued shall be automatically redeemed at checkout on your next shipment(s) through the Services, until the Other Credits are fully redeemed. You acknowledge that even if Other Credits are redeemed on a shipment, you may still need to pay for expedited shipping if you choose expedited shipping for such shipment and you do not have enough Other Credits to cover the full cost. Any remaining balance on the purchase amount for a given shipment after Other Credits are fully redeemed is your sole responsibility. You cannot choose when (or when not) to redeem any Other Credits in your Account.
THERE IS NO DORMANCY FEE. Other Credits are only valid for redemption on the Services and are void where prohibited or restricted by law. To the fullest extent of the law, Other Credits cannot be used for cash back or sold.

- WARRANTY DISCLAIMER.
THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. MIA, ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, SUPPLIERS, PARTNERS, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS AND CONTENT PROVIDERS (COLLECTIVELY THE “MIA PARTIES”), TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, (A) EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY ANY COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE; (B) DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED, STABLE OR SECURE; (C) DOES NOT WARRANT THE SERVICES WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR THAT ANY DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED; AND (D) DOES NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTIES REGARDING THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR CONTENT WITH RESPECT TO THEIR ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, COMPLETENESS, OR OTHERWISE.

- ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with us and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Services, to any products sold or distributed through the Services, or to any aspect of your relationship with MIA, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify,; and (2) you or MIA may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to us at the following address: 244 Fifth Avenue, Suite G280, New York, NY 10001. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, MIA will pay them for you. In addition, MIA will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 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 country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and MIA. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND MIA HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and MIA are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 13.a above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would.
