You acknowledge that (a) You have read and understood these Terms; and (b) these Terms have the same force and effect as an agreement signed by You. If You disagree with any part of the Terms, then You do not have permission to access the Services.
PLEASE NOTE: These Terms contain a mandatory arbitration agreement. Please review the Arbitration Agreement set forth below carefully, as it will require you to resolve all disputes with the Company on an individual basis through final and binding arbitration, and require you to forego jury trials, class actions, and all other types of court proceedings of any and every kind, unless you opt out of the Arbitration Agreement by following the opt-out procedures described below. By entering this Agreement, you expressly acknowledge that you have read and understand all of the terms of the Arbitration Agreement and have taken time to consider the consequences of this important decision.
I. Arbitration Agreement
By agreeing to these Terms, You agree that You are required to resolve any claim that You may have against Piping Rock on an individual basis in arbitration, as set forth in this Arbitration Agreement. This will preclude You from bringing any class, collective, consolidated, or representative action against Piping Rock, and also preclude You from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future class, collective, consolidated, or representative action brought against Piping Rock by someone else.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration Between You & Piping Rock
You and Piping Rock agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to (a) any part of these Terms, or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or (b) Your access to or use of the Services at any time, will be settled by binding, individual arbitration between You and Piping Rock, and not in a court of law in any jurisdiction.
You and Piping Rock agree that the arbitrator (“Arbitrator”), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
You acknowledge and agree that You and Piping Rock are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. Unless both You and Piping Rock agree in writing, any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. However, You and Piping Rock each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyright rights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
Rules and governing law
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and any supplementary rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with these Terms.
Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, You and Piping Rock agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. You can contact AAA for more information on how to commence an arbitration proceeding at www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879.
For claims under $10,000, 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. If Your claim at or above $10,000, Your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's applicable rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000, unless the Arbitrator determines that either the substance of the claim or the relief sought in the Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, as measured by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b). Likewise, We will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that either the substance of the claim or the relief sought in the Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, as measured by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b).
The Arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction to do so. The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. An Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties.

YOU HAVE INDEPENDENTLY EVALUATED THE DESIRABILITY OF PARTICIPATING IN THE REWARDS PROGRAM AND ARE NOT RELYING ON ANY REPRESENTATION, GUARANTEE OR STATEMENT OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH IN THIS DOCUMENT.
2. Modification and Termination of the Rewards Program:
We may modify any term of the Rewards Program and/or terminate the Rewards Program at any time, in Our sole discretion, by posting a change or termination notice on the relevant website of Service. Such modifications may include, for example, changes in the Rewards rate, reward schedules, redemption procedures and applicable rules. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE REWARDS PROGRAM WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF ANY CHANGES. If We terminate Our Rewards Program, Our sole obligation will be to distribute to You Your Reward Money in the form of a check or Rewards Points to You, to be used towards Your pipingrock.com purchases. Our obligation is limited to a maximum of six months of Rewards, calculated based on Your Rewards for the month immediately preceding the month in which We terminate the Rewards Program.
We reserve the right to terminate any account if We deem the account is linked to fraudulent matters of any kind, including referrals, reviews, disputed purchases or credit card charges; spam (unsolicited email) and indiscriminate advertising, or intentional misuse of the Rewards Program including, but not limited to, using more than one account.
3. How You Earn Your Rewards:
We appreciate the "word of mouth" advertising Our customers provide and reward You for introducing Your relatives and friends to Piping Rock and Our products and Services. You earn Your Rewards when others use Your Rewards Code to place an order. The Rewards You earn are based on others’ purchases, not the disclosure, deletion or sale of Personal Information. Piping Rock Rewards can be used towards purchases on Our websites or can be redeemed for cash at a specific accumulation amount, as We describe below.
For the rewards schedule and information on Our Rewards Program, please visit Our frequently asked questions page at https://rewards.pipingrock.com/faq. This page is hereby incorporated by reference and included as part of this document. You hereby represent that You have read the FAQ page and agree to the terms set forth therein.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO TERMINATE THE REWARDS PROGRAM AT ANY TIME AND IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.
4. How You Can Use Your Rewards:
When You receive Rewards, simply log into Your Piping Rock account and shop as You normally would. Once You begin adding items to Your shopping cart, You will see available Rewards being automatically subtracted from Your subtotal, assuming You have accepted the most recent version of this document. Please note that no Rewards will be available for Your use until You accept the most recent version of this document.
On the last day of each month, if Your account has a specified minimum amount of Rewards, then You may elect to receive payment from Us in the form of a check if You provide Us with the necessary tax ID information. Reward amounts below a specific threshold will be rolled over to the next month. You will be responsible for any and all tax liability arising from any Rewards You accumulate under the Rewards Program.
Your Rewards Code is valid only for use by first time customers to whom You recommend Our products. To ensure that You don’t lose these credits, We automatically apply all available Rewards to Your personal purchases, subject to Your acceptance of this document.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO TERMINATE THE REWARDS PROGRAM AT ANY TIME AND IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.
5. Your Tax information:
You will be responsible for any and all tax liability arising from any rewards You accumulate under the Rewards Program. United States federal laws require Us to obtain tax information from Rewards Program participants who are United States citizens or United States residents (W-9) and from Rewards Program participants who are not United States citizens or residents but whose businesses are taxable in the United States (W-8ECI). If We believe You are a Rewards Program participant from whom We are obligated to obtain tax information, and You do not provide this information to Us after We have requested it, We may withhold Your Rewards until You provide this information or otherwise satisfy Us that You are not a person from whom We are required to obtain tax information. For US citizens or residents, information about submitting tax information is available on rewards.pipingrock.com.
6. Promotional Activity:
You may share Your Rewards Code on a personal blog or any available social media accounts, subject to the terms and conditions of those accounts. However, Your social media profile may not contain any content or logo that could be interpreted as being managed or controlled by Us. Likewise, Your blog, website or social media pages may not resemble the Services or include any content that could be on its own or in the aggregate be interpreted to indicate an affiliation with Us, including, but not limited to, use of any Our trade name, trademark, trade dress, logo, copyrighted material, or any similar protected content.
You may also email Your Rewards Code or send a text message to friends and family. In doing so, You represent and warrant that You will not engage in and/or facilitate spamming, unsolicited commercial email or otherwise fail to comply with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-187) or any successor legislation, and/or any other laws and/or regulations that govern email marketing and/or communications.
You may not purchase or use domain names that include the words “Piping Rock” or certain variations and misspellings. We don’t want to confuse the general public about which are the official Piping Rock websites or Services.
We don’t want to confuse the general public about Our official mobile applications, so You may not create one that looks similar to any of Our apps. Your app may not integrate and/or use or link to Our app in any way. Likewise, You are not permitted to participate in any advertising as the Rewards Program is not intended for commercial purposes.
7. Program Participation
By participating in the Rewards Programs, You represent that You are at least 18 years of age. The Program can only be used by one customer account per household. If You have multiple adults living at the same residence, there should only be one Rewards Code for the entire family. Likewise, while products can be used many people in the household, Your review of a product should only apply to one Rewards Code. Any misuse of the Rewards Program will result in immediate termination and forfeiture of all accumulated Rewards.
All accounts must be in the name of a living person, not a business entity. Furthermore, accounts are not personal to You. They are not transferrable and are not eligible for any succession. In the event of the passing of the account owner, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and the account will be closed. All eligible Reward Money and Points will be dispersed according to Our current documentation at that time.
8. No Warranty:
THE REWARDS PROGRAM IS BEING PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS", WITH NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITIONS. WE EXCLUDE ALL CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND OTHER TERMS WHICH OTHERWISE MIGHT BE IMPLIED OR INCORPORATED INTO THIS AGREEMENT TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THIS INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.

Piping Rock gives no warranty and makes no representation in relation to the Services or the Content. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the Services is with the buyer. Should the Services prove defective following their purchase, the buyer and not the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer assumes the entire cost of all necessary servicing or repair. Piping Rock expressly disclaims to the fullest extent permitted by law, and You waive any representation or warranty (express, implied, or statutory) that may be implied by these Terms, by custom, or by law or otherwise and which is not expressly set out herein. This includes the disclaimer of any implied warranties of availability of the Services, non-disruption, security, accuracy, the use of reasonable care and skill, quality, merchantability, title or entitlement, fitness for a particular purpose, ability to achieve a particular result or functionality and non-infringement of third-party rights, as well as warranties arising by usage of trade, course of dealing, and course of performance by Piping Rock relating to the Services, the Content, User Submissions, any software licensed or provided to You by Piping Rock, and any agreement with a third-party. Piping Rock also does not represent or warrant that the Services will operate in combination with other hardware, software, systems or data not provided by Piping Rock; that Services errors will be corrected; or that the Services are PCI compliant.
As noted below, in certain states, the law may not permit the disclaimer of warranties, so the above disclaimer may not apply to You.
XVIII. Limitation of Liability
In no event shall Piping Rock be liable to You or any third-party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages whatsoever resulting from the Services or third-party products or services, under these Terms or in connection with their performance or breach.

Piping Rock’s maximum aggregate liability for any single event (or a series of related events) giving rise to a claim in connection with these Terms or in relation to the Services will be limited to the amount You paid Us during the three months preceding Your initiation of the claim or dispute. Such a refund, in any case, will be governed by the applicable Refund Policy and the Terms of Sale specified on the Services or in these Terms. Any claims relating to use of the Services must be bought within one (1) year from the date the cause of action arose. Claims brought after such period are waived and VOID.

THIS PROVISION SHALL HAVE NO EFFECT ON THE COMPANY’S CHOICE OF LAW PROVISION SET FORTH BELOW.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Piping Rock from and against any claim, loss, obligation, demand, damage, cost, liability, expense, and attorneys’ fees incurred, resulting from or arising out of (1) Your access to, use, or misuse of the Services; (2) a breach of these Terms; (3) Your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation, any copyright, property, or privacy right; (4) any claim that any of Your User Submissions caused damage to an indemnified party or a third-party; (5) any transaction You conduct as a result of the contact facilitated by the Services; or (6) any activity using Your email address by You or any other person accessing the Services using Your email address. We reserve the right, at Our own expense, to assume exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by You and, in such case, You agree to cooperate with Us in the defense of such matter. You may not settle any claim covered by these Terms or admit any liability on the part of the Company without the Company's prior written approval.

XXII. Entire Agreement, Severability, Survival & No Waiver
