THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE REQUIRES (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) THAT YOU SUBMIT CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION, AND FURTHER (1) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AGAINST OOPS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, (2) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO SEEK RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND (3) YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US RESOLVED BY A JURY OR IN A COURT OF LAW.
The Oops Service: The Service is designed to provide a digital interface and other services related to consumer returns of retail items, including the pickup and delivery of any item, whether that be for items purchased online or in-store. For online returns, Oops will deliver items directly to an Oops warehouse for pick-up by a Shipping Agent (defined below) and for in-store returns Oops will deliver all items to the applicable store. For all pickups and deliveries and other functions within the course and scope of its business, Oops uses vehicles owned or leased and operated by Oops. The Service also provides related packing services when requested. For more information about us and our products and services please visit oops.io/about.
Additional Terms: In addition, when using certain features through the Service, you will be subject to any additional terms applicable to such features that may be posted on or within the Service from time to time (“Additional Terms”). In case of conflict between any Additional Terms and the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service, the Additional Terms will govern with regard to the specific feature to which they apply. All such terms are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service.
Access and Use of the Service
Restricted Items and Policies: Certain items cannot be handled in any way by Oops due to regulatory, safety or other reasons. Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions for general guidance on what items we can’t accept. In addition to this, if applicable, the ultimate item carrier or shipping agent that you or the applicable retailer has selected (for example, USPS, UPS, or FedEx) (each, a “Shipping Agent”) may also maintain a list of restricted items. You must confirm that your item is not on any such restricted items list before submitting a return to Oops, and you represent and agree that you are solely responsible for complying with all restricted items requirements of Oops or any applicable Shipping Agent.
You further represent and warrant that each item you submit to Oops for return complies with these Terms of Service and all Oops policies (including our restricted items policy described in our FAQ), any requirements or policies of the applicable Shipping Agent, and that the item you are returning is in fact returnable in accordance with the policies and procedures of the applicable retailer. Oops, in its sole discretion or the discretion of any Oops personnel or representative, reserves the right to decline to pick up or process any items that it believes do not comply with any of the foregoing.
For items deemed unreturnable, you shall still be responsible for our standard fees and Oops reserves the right to charge additional reasonable fees for items deemed unreturnable by a retail store. Oops will endeavor to deliver any such unreturnable items back to your applicable pick-up address (using its own vehicles or by arranging for such delivery) at your expense, but in some circumstances we may be unable to reasonably do so (in which case you may be required to retrieve your items from our designated business location).
Member Account, Password and Security: You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account details, if any, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Oops of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session when accessing the Service. Oops will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this paragraph.
Modifications to Service: Oops reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Oops will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
General Practices Regarding Use and Storage: You acknowledge that Oops may establish general practices and limits concerning use of the Service, including the maximum period of time that data or other content will be retained by the Service and the maximum storage space that will be allotted on Oops’ or its third-party service providers’ servers on your behalf. You agree that Oops has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Service. You acknowledge that Oops reserves the right to terminate accounts that are inactive for an extended period of time. You further acknowledge that Oops reserves the right to change these general practices and limits at any time, in its sole discretion, with or without notice.

The following are examples of the kinds of content and/or uses that are illegal or prohibited by Oops. Oops reserves the right to investigate and take appropriate legal action against anyone who, in Oops’ sole discretion, violates this provision, including removing the offending content from the Service, suspending or terminating the account of such violators, and reporting the violator to law enforcement authorities. You agree to not use the Service to:

You represent and warrant to Oops that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with Oops or the Payment Processor (as defined below), as applicable, of any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You agree to pay Oops the amount that is specified in the payment plan in accordance with the terms of such plan and these Terms of Service. If your payment plan includes an ongoing subscription, that is automatically renewed periodically, you hereby authorize Oops (through the Payment Processor) to bill your payment instrument in advance on such periodic basis in accordance with the terms of the applicable payment plan until you terminate your account, and you further agree to pay any charges so incurred.2
For any items that are eligible to be returned for cash, you accept and agree that such cash refund will be transmitted back to you via our business Venmo account, or any other method as may be designated by us.
If you dispute any charges you must let Oops know within sixty (60) days after the date that Oops charges you. We reserve the right to change Oops’ prices. If Oops does change prices, Oops will provide notice of the change through the Service user interface, a pop-up notice, email, or through other reasonable means, at Oops’ option, at least thirty (30) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Service after the price change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount. You will be responsible for all taxes associated with the Service, other than taxes based on Oops’ net income.
Refunds and Cancellations: Payments made by you hereunder are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Oops. You may cancel your subscription online by accessing your account. If you need help in doing so, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Labels and Packaging: In order for us to complete your return, you must provide us with complete and accurate return information including, but not limited to, the physical or electronic return labels and/or QR code receipts, and photo or membership identification. Please also ensure that you have supplied us with any packaging requirements or other information required for the successful return of your item, including any requirements of the applicable Shipping Agent. Oops, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to decline to pick up any items that are not accompanied by required labels or return instructions.
Lost or Damaged Items: Oops works hard to prevent the loss of or damage to any item while in our possession, and will work with you in such instances to help rectify the situation. However, you understand that there is inherent risk in any shipping activity (and related services) and there is potential for packages and related items to get lost or damaged while using the Services. If you believe your item has been lost or damaged, you must notify us at email@example.com with the subject line “Lost or Damaged Item” within fourteen (14) days, and include all information necessary for us to investigate the issue and help provide a resolution. Oops will help rectify damaged returns to the extent the damage was not caused by you, your non-compliance with any of the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service or our other policies, or any other matters outside of our reasonable control. For items that meet the requirements above, and conditioned on proper notification to us, we may in our sole discretion cover up to a maximum of $1,000 in loss or damage with respect to each pick-up (for clarity, such limit applies regardless of the number of items or whether their actual value exceeds such amount), subject to Section 9 (Limitation of Liability) below.
Commercial Use: Unless otherwise expressly authorized herein or in the Service, you agree not to display, distribute, license, perform, publish, reproduce, duplicate, copy, create derivative works from, modify, sell, resell, exploit, transfer, or upload for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service.

To the extent you access the Service through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier’s standard charges, data rates, and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Oops and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message, or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your Oops account information to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person that acquires your old number.
Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA): By using the Service, you consent to receive prerecorded calls and information from us via SMS and/or MMS messages sent through an automated telephone dialing system (“Text Service”), even if you have opted in to the National Do Not Call List, any state Do not Call List, or the internal Do Not Call List of any company. You may be required to respond to an initial message as instructed to complete your registration and confirm enrollment in the Text Service. You do not have to participate in the Text Service in order to use the Service. In the event you no longer want to participate in the Text Service, you agree to notify us directly. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your Oops account information to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person that acquires your old number.
There is no additional charge for the Text Service, but your mobile carrier’s standard message and data rates apply to any messages you send or receive through the Text Service, including confirmations and subsequent texts. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain mobile features and certain mobile features may be incompatible with your carrier or mobile device. We are not liable for any delays in the receipt of, or any failures to receive, any SMS or MMS messages, as delivery is subject to effective transmission by your mobile carrier and compatibility of your mobile device. Please contact your mobile carrier if you have any questions regarding these issues or your mobile data and messaging plan.
As described in the Text Service enrollment and welcome messages, including messages sent to a short code associated with the Text Service or by reply to any message you receive from us, you may text “STOP” to cancel or “HELP” for customer support information. If you choose to cancel your Text Service, you agree to receive a final text message from the Text Service confirming your cancellation.
You can also invite others to use the Service through the Text Service by providing the numbers of those you want to invite or by selecting the individuals you want to invite from your contacts list (if you have uploaded one). By asking us to invite others to use the Services, you represent to us that those you invite consent to receive the automated invitation messages and that you are authorized to convey that consent to us.

For clarity, the foregoing is not intended to prohibit you from installing the Mobile App on another device on which you also agreed to these Terms of Service. Each instance of these Terms of Service that you agree to in connection with downloading a Mobile App grants you the aforementioned rights in connection with the installation and use of the Mobile App on one device.

Counter-Notice: If you believe that your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to upload and use the content in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
your physical or electronic signature;
identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Agreement to Arbitrate
This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in these Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Oops, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, any advertising, or any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms of Service, you and Oops are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND OOPS AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND OOPS AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.
Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
Oops is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Oops should be sent to 129 East 13800 S, Suite B2, PMB 222, Draper, Utah 84020 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Oops and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Oops may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Oops or you will not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Oops is entitled.
Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, https://www.adr.org/consumer. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under these Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless Oops and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination will be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, Oops agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, Oops will reimburse you for all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, Oops will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Oops will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement will be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of these Terms of Service will continue to apply.
Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, Oops agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Service, you may reject any such change by sending Oops written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
You agree that Oops, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including for lack of use or if Oops believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of the Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Oops may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of these Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Oops may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that Oops will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Service.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Service, and Oops will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. Oops reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.
These Terms of Service (together with the terms incorporated by reference herein) constitute the entire agreement between you and Oops governing your access and use of the Service, and supersede any prior agreements between you and Oops with respect to the Service. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use Third-Party Services, third-party content or third-party software. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of Utah without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Oops submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Salt Lake County, Utah. The failure of Oops to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of these Terms of Service and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Service to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign these Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Oops, but Oops may assign or transfer these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. As used in these Terms of Service, the words “include” and “including,” and variations thereof, will not be deemed to be terms of limitation, but rather will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.” Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service. Oops will not be in default hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations where such failure or delay is due to civil disturbances, riot, epidemic, hostilities, war, terrorist attack, embargo, natural disaster, acts of God, flood, fire, sabotage, fluctuations or unavailability of electrical power, network access or equipment, or any other circumstances or causes beyond Oops’ reasonable control.
