You agree to pay all fees or charges for all orders for products and services placed by you via the Website. You must provide Westbourne with a valid credit card accepted by us (“Payment Provider”) in order to make a purchase. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not the Terms to determine your rights and liabilities.

You agree to immediately notify Westbourne of any change in your billing address or the credit card used for payment hereunder. Westbourne reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on Website or by e-mail delivery to you.

When you order products for overseas delivery, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the package with the products arrives at the destination that you specified. Any charges for customs clearance must be borne by you, as Westbourne has no control over such charges and cannot foresee the amount charged (if any). Since customs policies vary from country to country, you should contact the customs office in the country where you have us ship your products to get more information. Please also be aware that you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of such count.

Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in shipments.
Free shipping promotions do not apply to international orders.

Dispute Resolution. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Westbourne 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 Website, the Resources, any products purchased via the Website or to any aspect of your relationship with Westbourne, 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 Westbourne 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 disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of these Terms or any prior version of these Terms.
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 our us at Be Westbourne, LLC, 8605 Santa Monica Blvd PMB 44425, West Hollywood, CA 90026. 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 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, Westbourne will pay them for you. In addition, Westbourne 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 Westbourne. 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 Westbourne 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 Westbourne are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in subpart(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. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL CLAIMS, DISPUTES, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, than then claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in Los Angeles, California. All other claims, disputes or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: Be Westbourne, LLC, 8605 Santa Monica Blvd PMB 44425, West Hollywood, CA 90026 or: firstname.lastname@example.org, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Westbourne username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Westbourne account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
Severability.Except as provided in subpart (e), if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Survival of Agreement.This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Westbourne.
Modification.Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Westbourne makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30 days of such change becoming effective by writing Westbourne at the following address: Be Westbourne, LLC, 8605 Santa Monica Blvd PMB 44425, West Hollywood, CA 90026.
Entire Agreement; Severability; No Waiver
These Terms and any policies that we post on our Website, constitute the entire agreement between you and Westbourne with respect to the subject matter of these Terms and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and Westbourne with respect to such subject matter. If any provision of these Terms is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in place and the invalidated provision will be deemed replaced by an enforceable provision that most closely reflects the intent of you and Westbourne.
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of that right or provision or any other rights or provisions included within the Terms.
