We attempt to be as accurate as possible and have made significant efforts to accurately display the colors of our Products that appear. However, we do not guarantee that Product descriptions, sizes, colors, styles or other Product-related Content is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.
4. PRICING AND PAYMENT
First, a quick reminder that your Order may actually be placed with an Bubble Beauty Affiliate or with one of our fulfillment partners, and so references in this Section to "Bubble Beauty", "us", "we", and "our" should be understood accordingly.
4.1. Pricing. The price you pay for the Product is the price displayed on the checkout page when you place your Order, and no other prices are applicable. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, while we try and ensure that all prices on the Website are accurate, errors may occur (including, but not limited to, mispricing in our catalog). If we discover an error in the price of Products you have placed an Order for, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your Order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the Order as cancelled. If you cancel the Order in such cases, and you have already paid for the Product, you will receive a refund or credit in the amount of the price you paid.
4.2. Currency. The base currency currently used on the Website is U.S. Dollars. Pricing may be offered in other currencies, and in such cases the pricing is calculated according to the rate of exchange between the base currency and the currency that you select when placing your Order. We reserve the right to update such exchange rates regularly, in our sole discretion, and you acknowledge that such updates may affect Product pricing. You will be charged according to the applicable exchange rate at the time you place your Order.
4.3. Payment Method. You may pay by debit card, credit card or another alternative payment method offered as part of the checkout process. The availability of a certain payment method may depend on your geographical location. (If we change or supplement existing payment method options, this will not affect any existing Order.) Bubble Beauty will charge you through the payment method you have selected for your Order, and you authorize Bubble Beauty to do so immediately following placement of your Order. Accordingly, you must provide valid and current billing information for yourself (and, if applicable, for other persons, but only if you have first obtained their express consent to do so). In processing payment, we may use tools, software and services of payment processors to process transactions, and if your payment is not received by us for any reason from your payment method provider/issuer, you agree to promptly pay all amounts due upon request and use the method that we reasonably prescribe.
You hereby represent and warrant that you are the person in whose name the payment method was issued or registered, and you are authorized to place the Order with such payment method and disclose all related billing information.
4.4. Verification. When deciding whether to accept your Order we may use certain information about you, including information provided to us by our third party identity verification and fraud alert partners. For example, we may pass on your details for them to check against certain public and private databases and to provide an assessment to us. This will help to protect you and us from fraudulent activities.
4.5. Taxes. Except for taxes based on Bubble Beauty's net income, you are responsible for any and all taxes, duties, and other governmental charges relating to your Order, which may include, but will not be limited to, any sales, use, or consumption tax. For certain shipping destination and/or certain Products, you may be offered the option to pre-pay applicable taxes, which will then be calculated and included in the final price when you place the Order.
5. SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
Delivery charges and timeframes vary depending on the type of Product ordered, the service you select, and the delivery address. Full details of our shipping and delivery policies can be found at www.HelloBubble.com/faq, which is hereby incorporated into, and made a part of, this Agreement by reference. In all cases, however, delivery timeframes are just estimates (and should not be relied upon as guaranteed delivery times).
You will be responsible for ensuring that the Product under your Order complies with applicable import Laws and for paying any applicable import duties and taxes, as well as any customs clearance fees that are levied by the importing country at the time the shipment arrives in your country.

Capitalized terms not defined in this Schedule shall have the meanings given to them in the main body of the Agreement to which this Schedule is attached.
Unless you and Bubble Beauty expressly agree otherwise in writing in respect of a given Dispute, the arbitration shall be taken place in-person in New York City, New York, USA, and will be administered by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc.

In the event any litigation should arise between you and Bubble Beauty in any court of competent jurisdiction in a proceeding to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND BUBBLE BEAUTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the proceeding be resolved by a judge. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the plaintiff/claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the plaintiff's/claimant’s individual claim.
Regardless of who initiates arbitration for a Dispute, you will always remain responsible for your costs relating to counsel, experts, witnesses, and travel to the arbitration. If you initiate arbitration for a Dispute, you will be required to pay $250 of the fee required to initiate the arbitration and Bubble Beauty will pay any remaining JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services. If Bubble Beauty initiates an arbitration for a Dispute, Bubble Beauty will pay all administrative fees and costs related to the arbitration, including all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the decision and award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain its confidentiality, unless (and in such cases, only the extent) otherwise required by applicable law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of competent jurisdiction any information necessary to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek equitable relief.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, EVEN IF ANYTHING IN THE JAMS STREAMLINED RULES (OR OTHER JAMS RULES) PERMIT OTHERWISE:
(A) YOU AND BUBBLE BEAUTY ARE HEREBY EACH IRREVOCABLY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY, AS WELL AS THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE (FOR EXAMPLE, AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER) IN A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR OTHER CLASS-WIDE OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, AND THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY; AND
(B) NO ARBITRATION WILL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE ANY INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S DISPUTE WITH ANY OTHER PARTY’S DISPUTE.
