SUBSCRIBE AND SAVE TERMS
Simply subscribe to your favorite products and choose how regularly you would like to receive them. We look after everything else. Effortlessly manage what you receive, when it arrives, and the way you pay. Login to your dedicated portal from any device and easily update your settings. We alert you before each delivery or any problems with your account, making it easy for you to keep track of your subscriptions. You are free to cancel your subscription at any time, but we cannot cancel an order once it has been shipped from our facility. If you cancel after it has been shipped, the cancellation will take effect on your next payment cycle.
All Subscriptions are subject to price changes, but you will be notified of any changes to your subscribed products.
Surf Sweets reserves the right to terminate or block users who abuse the subscription function. After three resubscriptions, your account is subject to review.
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and do not include applicable Taxes (as defined below) and other charges unless we clearly state in writing that a price includes applicable Taxes. All products and services offered for sale are subject to availability. We reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, reject all or any part of an order and discontinue our Services without prior notice.

We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, price change, suspension, or discontinuance of the Service.
Certain products or services may be available exclusively online through the website. These products or services may have limited quantities and are subject to our Return Policy.
Due to the typically short timeframe between order placement and fulfillment, it is difficult to make changes once your order has been placed.
Please contact us within three business days after receiving your order if something is wrong with your order. For incorrect items shipped, we will offer a replacement or refund. Shipping charges will be refunded only if the incorrect item is shipped. We do not accept returns.

If you cancel an order promptly, or if we cancel your order, your payment type (e.g., credit card) will either not be charged or, if already submitted for payment processing, a refund will be issued to the original payment type via our payment processor (refunds may take several business days to appear in your account).
If the item you want to cancel has been shipped, it cannot be canceled by you or by our Customer Service Department. Surf Sweets is not responsible for refunding a customer for unwanted products after being shipped from the Surf Sweets shipping facility.
We ship within 1-3 business days and we cannot control the speed of the delivery once it is with the logistics partner, so we cannot cancel orders simply because they were delayed in transit, or if events/holidays were missed.
We have made every effort to display the colors and images of our products that appear at the store as accurately as possible. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color will be accurate.
You are responsible for any sales, use value-added, or other governmental taxes, fees, or duties (“Taxes“) due concerning your purchase and use of goods or services. We will collect applicable Taxes if we determine we have a responsibility to collect Taxes. We will present an estimate of Taxes to be collected at checkout, except where we have clearly stated in writing that a price includes Taxes. The actual Taxes charged and collected may differ from the amount shown at checkout. You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers or changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.
Sales Taxes will be collected for orders that ship to Utah at the applicable state tax rates.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION; BINDING ARBITRATION. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH SURF SWEETS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or Surf Sweets seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or conflicts in which you or Surf Sweets seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Surf Sweets waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Salt Lake County, Utah, or by a telephonic conference in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules“) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS“), which are available on the JAMS website and as a result of this incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and Surf Sweets agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and Surf Sweets and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
You and Surf Sweets agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA“), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and Surf Sweets agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee, and Surf Sweets will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. Surf Sweets will pay all JAMS fees and expenses for any arbitration initiated by Surf Sweets. You and Surf Sweets agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Utah and the United States sitting in Salt Lake City, Utah, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the lawsuit is permanently barred, which means that you and Surf Sweets will not have the right to assert the claim.
You have the right to opt-out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 17 by providing written notice to:
Attn: Legal Department
3780 West Directors Row Salt Lake City, UT 84104
To be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and indicate your intent to opt-out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you agree to resolve Disputes.
GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE
These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Utah, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Utah or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Utah and the United States, respectively, sitting in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred before the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.
These Terms of Service are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services or when you cease using our site.
If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have been unable, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Service, we also may terminate this agreement at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to our Services (or any part thereof).
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. The unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, and such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
The following sections will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and the termination of your Surf Sweets account.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Surf Sweets relating to your access to and use of our Services, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications, and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any previous versions of the Terms of Service). The failure of Surf Sweets to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the drafting party.
You understand that your content (not including credit card information) may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks and (b) changes to conform and adapt to the technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
