Some of our Sites may allow you to purchase products directly on them ("eCommerce Sites").
We reserve the right to deny a refund , and/or issue a rewards credit to your Account on the Site in place of a refund if we determine that our policy is being abused. We may use any means available to us, including coordination with other companies, to determine if you are abusing our policy. This decision is made in our sole discretion and determination.
We: (a) reserve the right to change the goods and services advertised or offered for sale through an eCommerce Site, the prices or specifications of such goods and services, and any promotional offers at any time without any notice or liability to you or any other person; (b) cannot guarantee that goods or services advertised or offered for sale on a Site will be available when ordered or thereafter; (c) reserve the right to limit quantities sold or made available for sale; (d) do not warrant that information on a Site (including without limitation product descriptions, colors or photographs) is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free; and (e) reserve the right to modify, cancel, terminate or not process orders (including accepted orders) where the price or other material information on an eCommerce Site is inaccurate, where we have insufficient quantities to fulfill an order or for any other reason in our sole discretion. If we do not process an order for such reason, we will either not charge you or will apply credit to the payment type used in the order. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusions and disclaimers of certain implied warranties, so some of the provisions of this section may not apply to you. Unless otherwise indicated (or if the Site has a non-US domain), products sold on the eCommerce Sites are intended for end use in the United States and are not labeled or intended for international distribution.
Taxes: If we are legally required to collect sales tax or other fees on your orders, the tax amount will be added automatically to your purchase price. On rare occasions an error in our tax database may cause the sales tax charge to be incorrect. If this happens, at any time up to two years from your date of purchase you may contact us for a refund of tax overcharges. This right to a refund is your exclusive remedy for sales tax errors.
Payment Processing: We may use a third-party payment processor to process your payment information, including your payment card data. Be aware that you may be subject to the third-party processor's terms and your information may be subject to their privacy practices.
Some eCommerce Sites sell products for which we allow a refund; meaning all or a portion of the purchase price is returned to you without you providing the item back to us. This may be indicated on the applicable eCommerce Site or may be communicated by our customer service team. We reserve the right to only issue a refund in our sole discretion regardless of what an eCommerce Site may indicate. Refunds will not be issued for products that have not been purchased directly through the Site.
Timing: For refund eligible products, you have 30 days from the date of shipment to contact us for a full refund of the purchase price. Following such 30-day period, no product is eligible for a refund. However, even after 30 days, we encourage you to contact us if you are unsatisfied with a product and so our customer service can improve your experience, which may include providing an exception to this refund policy.
Conditions: Your refund is subject to the following conditions:
To request a refund, you must contact our customer service department by following the instructions on the eCommerce Site. Some eCommerce Sites may also let you request a refund through your Account or through other functionality.
In your refund request, you must indicate the specific product with which you are not satisfied and include your order number (if available), order date, location, name, and contact information, as well as the reason for your refund request.
If we accept your refund request, you will receive a credit to your original form of payment. If we are unable to credit that form of payment, your refund may not be completed. We may contact you for new payment information or provide your refund in another way, such as through your Account.
Certain Sites create or advertise promo codes, discounts, coupon codes, and offers that provide a benefit to you when entered upon checkout. These cannot be applied to prior or completed transactions, they must be provided at the time of purchase. Promo codes and discounts may have specific terms and conditions for use (for example, a promo code may not be combined with other offers). Offers have no cash exchange value, are not transferable, and will not be refunded at any time. It is your responsibility to review the terms and conditions for any promo code or discount before use. All Offers have an expiration date unique to the Offer. The expiration date will appear within the Chopt Rewards account, in the “Loyalty” and/or “Rewards” screens. Chopt Rewards members must download the latest versions of the Chopt App at any time in order to see accurate details, and Chopt is not responsible for customers who do not download the newest version of the app and therefore do not see the expiration details. Loyalty Offer progress also has an expiration date. Unless otherwise specified, expiration dates are final and will not be adjusted. Only consumers can use promo codes, they cannot be used by resellers, wholesalers, practitioners, or the like. You may have no right to discounts, coupons, or offers that are expired or discontinued even if they remain visible on the Site.
Chopt offers a program where you may receive benefits in connection with certain actions taken with Chopt (a "Reward Program"). If you elect to opt-in to any Reward Programs, the terms of this "Reward and Loyalty Programs" section apply to you, as does any terms in the section corresponding to the applicable Reward Program as well as other rules and procedures as outlined by LevelUp.

It is our policy to expeditiously respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). This section describes the information that should be present in these notices and the take down procedure we follow with respect to allegedly infringing material. If we receive proper notification of claimed copyright infringement, our response to these notices may include removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material and/or terminating or suspending users.

Designated Agent: Tom Licitra
Address: 800 Westchester Ave, Suite N321, Rye Brook, NY 10573
To notify the provider of the allegedly infringing material to which we have removed or disabled access, we may forward a copy of your infringement notice, including your name and email address to the provider of the allegedly infringing material.
We may terminate users who, in our sole discretion, are deemed to be repeat infringers. Knowingly misrepresenting in a notification that material is infringing can subject you to damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer. If you receive an infringement notification from us, you may file a counter notification pursuant with our Designated Agent pursuant to the DMCA. To file a counter notification, please provide our Designated Agent with the following information:
Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access was disabled;
Your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address;
The following statement: "I consent to the jurisdiction of [insert one of the following: (1) "the Federal District Court in which my mailing address is located", or (2) if you reside outside of the United States, "the United States District Court for the 9th District;"
The following statement: "I will accept service of process from [insert the name of the person who submitted the infringement notification] or his/her agent";
The following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the affected material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled"; and
Your signature, in physical or electronic form.
Upon receipt of valid counter notification, we will promptly provide the person who provided the original infringement notification with a copy of your counter notification and inform that person that we will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in ten (10) business days. Further, we will replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it not less than ten (10), nor more than fourteen (14), business days following receipt of your counter notice, unless Designated Agent first receives notice from the person who submitted the original infringement notification that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Site.
We may revise or otherwise change or update this Agreement from time to time. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of such changes.

We encourage you to periodically review this Agreement―there may have been changes to our policies that may affect you. If you do not agree to the Agreement as modified, then you must discontinue your use of our Sites. Your continued use of a Site will signify your continued agreement to this Agreement as revised. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you of material changes to this Agreement.

Should we employ you, none of the materials provided on a Site constitute or should be considered part or of an employment contract or an offer for employment.
The Sites and this Agreement are in effect until terminated by you or us.

If you are a consumer residing in New Jersey, the following provisions of this Agreement do not apply to you (and do not limit any rights that you may have) to the extent that they are unenforceable under New Jersey law: (a) Disclaimer of Warranty; (b) Limitation of Liability; (c) Indemnity; and (d) under Disputes, the Arbitration and Class Action Waiver and the governing law provisions (solely to the extent that your rights as a consumer residing in New Jersey are required to be governed by New Jersey law).

If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, it shall be replaced in interpretation by a valid and enforceable term that most closely aligns with the intent of the original provision. If that is not possible, the provision shall be removed, and the rest of the Agreement will be enforceable.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
ARBITRATION USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, ALLOWS FOR MORE LIMITED DISCOVERY THAN IN COURT, AND IS SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY COURTS. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO BE REPRESENTED BY A LAWYER IN ARBITRATION OR PROCEED WITHOUT ONE. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
No Class Actions: EXCEPT FOR COORDINATED CLAIMS (AS DEFINED BELOW), YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIMS OR ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED, AND YOU AND WE ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ARBITRATION OR CLASS ACTION. Further, except for Coordinated Claims (defined below), unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your or our claims respectively and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void and shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement.
The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
Seeking Arbitration: If you believe you have a dispute with us, prior to initiating arbitration or filing a claim in small claims court, you must first call our customer service representatives and present your claim or dispute to allow us the opportunity to resolve the claim or dispute. Similarly, if we believe we have a dispute with you, our customer service representatives will first contact you in an attempt to resolve the dispute. If the dispute cannot be resolved by customer service and either you or we intend to seek arbitration, the party wishing to initiate arbitration must send to the other party, a written notice of the claim ("Notice"). Your Notice to us must be delivered by certified mail and addressed to: Legal Department, 800 Westchester Ave, Suite N321, Rye Brook, NY 10573. If we initiate arbitration, we will send a written Notice to an email address or other contact information you have previously provided to us, if available. We may also use any other means to contact you, including a message in your Account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by us, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. Arbitration forms can be downloaded from www.jamsadr.com. Except in the event of a Coordinated Claim (as defined below), if you are required to pay a filing fee, after we receive Notice that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US $10,000 or the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees.
Hearing: If your claim is for US $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic or video hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the JAMS Rules. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS Rules. In the event that the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of submitted documents, the arbitrator's decision and award will be made and delivered within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator, unless extended by the arbitrator. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules.
Award: In the event arbitration awards you damages of an amount at least US $100 greater than our last documented settlement offer; we will pay your awarded damages or US $2,500, whichever is greater.
Coordinated Proceedings: If twenty-five (25) or more individuals initiate Notices of dispute with us raising similar claims, and counsel for the individuals bringing the claims are the same or are coordinated for these individuals ("Coordinated Claims"), the claims shall proceed in arbitration in a coordinated proceeding. Counsel for the individuals and counsel for Chopt shall each select five (5) cases to proceed first in arbitration in a bellwether proceeding ("Test Cases"). The remaining cases shall not be filed in arbitration until the first ten (10) have been resolved. If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining cases after the conclusion of the Test Cases, each side may select another five (5) cases to proceed to arbitration for a second bellwether proceeding. This process may continue until the parties have determined an objective methodology to make an offer to resolve each and every outstanding claim. A court will have authority to enforce this clause and, if necessary, to enjoin the mass filing of arbitration demands against Chopt. Individuals bringing Coordinated Claims shall be responsible for up to US$250 of their filing fees or the maximum permissible under the applicable arbitration rules. All applicable statutes of limitations and defenses based upon the passage of time will be tolled while the Coordinated Proceedings specified in this Section are pending. We will take such action, if any, required to effectuate such tolling.
Injunctive Relief: Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and we both agree that you or we may sue in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights or in other scenarios where injunctive relief is appropriate. In the event a court or arbitrator having jurisdiction finds any portion of this Agreement unenforceable, that portion shall not be effective, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain effective. No waiver, express or implied, by either party of any breach of or default under this Agreement will constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or default or be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
Confidentiality: The parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and the Award, including the hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
Governing Law and Rules: This Agreement and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16). In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator is not empowered to award punitive or exemplary damages, except where permitted by statute, and the parties waive any right to recover any such damages. In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator may not award any incidental, indirect or consequential damages, including damages for lost profits. The parties adopt and agree to implement the JAMS Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedure (as it exists on the effective date of this Agreement) with respect to any final award in an arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement.
