By opting-in to an Autoship Subscription (all Autoship Subscriptions to which you have opted-in, “Your Autoship Subscriptions”) you agree to pay for all applicable Autoship Orders placed in accordance with this Agreement. When you place your initial Order for an Autoship Product and enroll in an Autoship Subscription, you will receive a notice that Your Autoship Subscription has been created and your initial Autoship Order will be processed. Your initial Order will be processed immediately, and your selected Payment Provider will be charged at the time such Order is placed. You may cancel Your Autoship Subscription(s) by logging into and going to the “Manage Autoships” page of your “Account Settings” page or by contacting Carewell at 855-855-1666 or email@example.com and requesting a cancellation of your Autoship Subscription(s). Cancellation will not apply to any order that has already been submitted to our warehouse for processing. You may change the Autoship Interval of Your Autoship Subscriptions at any time on a going forward basis by going to the “Manage Autoships” page of your “Account Settings” page. The Autoship Interval change becomes effective immediately upon making the change but will not apply to any order that has already been submitted to our warehouse for processing. We may, in our sole discretion, terminate any or all of Your Autoship Subscriptions at any time with or without notice. If we do so, you will only be charged for Autoship Orders that have been shipped to you prior to the time of termination.

At the end of each Autoship Interval, the applicable Autoship Subscription will automatically renew for the duration of the immediately preceding Autoship Interval and an Autoship Order will automatically be placed for the applicable Autoship Products at our then-current price for such Autoship Products. You will receive an email notification reminding you of each upcoming Autoship Order up to 72 hours prior to the start of the next Autoship Interval. Upon renewal of an Autoship Subscription, if Carewell does not receive payment from your Payment Provider for the applicable Autoship Order, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that Carewell may either terminate or suspend your Autoship Subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Autoship Subscription will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new Autoship Interval will begin as of the day payment was received). Similarly, if Carewell does not receive a payment from your Payment Provider for a recurring purchase, the product(s) ordered will not be shipped.

16. Dispute Resolution. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Carewell and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
16.1. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute, claim or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Services, or to any aspect of your relationship with Carewell, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or Carewell may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. 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 this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
16.2. 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 dispute or claim or request for relief to our registered agent:
Corporate Service Company
251 Little Falls Drive
City of Wilmington, County of New Castle 19808
The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or requests for relief 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 disputes 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 www.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, Carewell will pay them for you. In addition, Carewell will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief 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 county 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.
16.3. 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 assertion 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 Carewell. 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.
16.4. Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND CAREWELL 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 Carewell are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 16.1 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.
16.5. Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS 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 dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of Delaware. All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
16.6. 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: hello@Carewell.com within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your username (if any) on the Services, the email address you used to set up your 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.
16.7. Severability. Except as provided in subsection 16.5, 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.
16.8. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Carewell.
16.9. Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Carewell 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 Carewell at the following address: Carewell, 1930 Abbott Street, Suite 403, Charlotte, North Carolina 28203.
