6.1 Price. Future Mrs Box reserves the right to determine pricing for the Service. Future Mrs Box will make reasonable efforts to keep pricing information published on the website up to date. Future Mrs Box may change the fees for any feature of the Service, including additional fees or charges, and Future Mrs Box will give you advance notice of changes before they apply.

6.2 Authorization. You authorize Future Mrs Box to charge all sums for the orders that you make and any level of Service you select as described in these Terms or published by Future Mrs Box, including all applicable taxes, to the payment method specified in your account. If you pay any fees with a credit card, Future Mrs Box may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase.
6.3 Subscription Service.
a. Subscription Service. The Service may include automatically recurring payments for periodic charges (“Subscription Service”). You may purchase Subscription Services through the Service or through such other channels as we may make available from time-to-time in our sole discretion. Where you purchase Subscription Services through our iOS or Android apps or through a third party’s consumer electronic devices, your payments are processed by Apple or Google, or the manufacturer of the consumer electronic device (or any of their third party payment processors), as applicable. BY ACTIVATING A SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE, YOU HEREBY AUTHORIZE FUTURE MRS BOX TO PERIODICALLY CHARGE, ON A GOING-FORWARD BASIS AND UNTIL CANCELLATION OF EITHER THE RECURRING PAYMENTS OR YOUR ACCOUNT, ALL ACCRUED SUMS ON OR BEFORE THE PAYMENT DUE DATE FOR THE ACCRUED SUMS, INCLUDING THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE AND ANY APPLICABLE SALES, TELECOMMUNICATION, EXCISE, VALUED-ADDED OR SIMILAR TAXES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, BY PURCHASING SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW ON THE SUBSCRIPTION BILLING DATE (DEFINED BELOW) AT THE THEN-CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION FEE AND FOR THE SAME TERM AS THE IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING SUBSCRIPTION, UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION.
b. Subscription Billing Process. The “Subscription Billing Date” is the date when you purchase your first subscription to the Service. The “Subscription Fee” will be as set forth on the Service at the time of your purchase. To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, we reserve the right to change the subscription fee at any time in our sole discretion. Future Mrs Box will give you advance notice of any changes to the Subscription Fee before they apply, and you will have the opportunity to cancel your subscription prior to the next Subscription Billing Date if you do not accept the price change. Your account will be charged automatically on the Subscription Billing Date all applicable fees and taxes for the next subscription period. The subscription will continue unless and until you cancel your subscription, or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next periodic Subscription Fee to your account. We will bill the periodic Subscription Fee to the payment method you provide to us during registration (or to a different payment method if you change your payment information). If you fail to pay the applicable Subscription Fee when due, then you will be downgraded to the free service.
c. Cancellations. You may cancel the Subscription Service by following the instructions on the Service or by contacting us at: email@example.com. If you cancel your subscription, then you will have access to the subscription until the date that would have been your next Subscription Billing Date, after which you will be downgraded to the free Service. If you subscribed through your iOS or Android device and want to obtain a refund in connection with your subscription, then you must contact Apple or Google, as applicable. If you subscribed through the Services, then we will not refund any fees paid for your current subscription period.
d. Trials. From time to time, we or others on our behalf may offer trials of Subscription Services for a specified period without payment or at a reduced rate (a “Trial”). Future Mrs Box may determine your eligibility for a Trial and withdraw or modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability, to the extent permitted under applicable law. For some Trials, we’ll require you to provide your payment details to start the Trial. By providing such details you agree that we may automatically begin charging you for the Subscription Service on the first day following the end of the Trial and thereafter in accordance with Section 6.3. IF YOU DO NOT WANT THIS CHARGE, YOU MUST CANCEL THE APPLICABLE PAID SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE THE END OF THE TRIAL BY GOING TO YOUR ACCOUNT SETTINGS. IF YOU SIGNED UP FOR THE TRIAL THROUGH FUTURE MRS BOX, OR IF YOU RECEIVED YOUR TRIAL THROUGH A THIRD PARTY, YOU MUST CANCEL THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION THROUGH THE THIRD PARTY.
6.4 Delinquent Accounts. Future Mrs Box may suspend or terminate access to the Service, including fee-based portions of the Service, for any account for which any amount is due but unpaid.

FUTURE MRS BOX DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE OR ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICE, OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICE, WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES, OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, AND FUTURE MRS BOX DOES NOT WARRANT THAT ANY OF THOSE ISSUES WILL BE CORRECTED.
NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM THE SERVICE, COUNSELORS OR FUTURE MRS BOX ENTITIES OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING ANY OF THE FUTURE MRS BOX ENTITIES OR THE SERVICE THAT IS NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE FUTURE MRS BOX ENTITIES BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, OR ANY OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSS) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF, OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, THE SERVICE OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT ON THE SERVICE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STATUTE, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT ANY FUTURE MRS BOX ENTITY HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGE.

EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS INTENDED TO AND DOES ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN THE PARTIES UNDER THESE TERMS. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 18 WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
19. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
19.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Future Mrs Box in the most expedient and cost effective manner, and except as described in Section 19.2 and 19.3, you and Future Mrs Box agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, 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. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND FUTURE MRS BOX ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
19.2 Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 19.1, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
19.3 Opt-Out. If you do not wish to resolve disputes by binding arbitration, you may opt out of the provisions of this Section 19 within 30 days after the date that you agree to these Terms by sending a letter to Future Mrs Box, Attention: Legal Department – Arbitration Opt-Out, P.O. Box 261632, Tampa, FL 33685 that specifies: your full legal name, the email address associated with your account on the Service, and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once Future Mrs Box receives your Opt-Out Notice, this Section 19 will be void and any action arising out of these Terms will be resolved as set forth in Section 20.2. The remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected by your Opt-Out Notice.
19.4 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Future Mrs Box will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by these Terms. 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 Future Mrs Box. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
19.5 Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). Future Mrs Box’s address for Notice is: Future Mrs Box, Attention: Legal Department – Arbitration Opt-Out, P.O. Box 261632, Tampa, FL 33685.The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or Future Mrs Box may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Future Mrs Box must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by Future Mrs Box in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, Future Mrs Box will pay to you the higher of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (ii) $10,000.
19.6 Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, Future Mrs Box will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Hillsborough County, Florida, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Future Mrs Box for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
19.7 No Class Actions. YOU AND FUTURE MRS BOX AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Future Mrs Box agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
19.8 Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If Future Mrs Box makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Future Mrs Box’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Future Mrs Box’s address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account with Future Mrs Box will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will survive.
19.9 Enforceability. If Section 19.7 or the entirety of this Section 19 is found to be unenforceable, or if Future Mrs Box receives an Opt-Out Notice from you, then the entirety of this Section 19 will be null and void and, in that case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 20.2 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
