Providing Hope VA Privacy Notice

MEMBERSHIP DOES NOT/WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF MONEY IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN ANY SWEEPSTAKES OFFERED. A PURCHASE/PAYMENT OF MONEY OR MEMBERSHIP WILL NOT IMPROVE THE CHANCES OF WINNING.

Members must be active and in good standing on the start date of any giveaway to be eligible for that giveaway.

The MEMBERSHIP is intended for legal United States residents only and shall only be construed and evaluated according to U.S. law and applicable state law.

Membership Cancellation

If you signed-up for your membership directly through us, you may cancel your membership any time by visiting Your Account and adjusting your membership settings. If you cancel within 3 business days of signing, we will refund your full membership fee; provided that we may charge you (or withhold from your refund) the value of membership benefits used by you and your account during this 3-business day period. If you cancel at any other time, we will refund your full membership fee only if you and your account did not make any eligible purchases or take advantage of membership benefits since your latest membership charge.

Membership Benefits, Purchases and Entries

Membership benefits depend upon inventory availability, order deadlines, and in some cases the shipping address. They are limited to certain products sold by Providinghopeva.com (or third-party sellers) on the Providinghopeva.com website. Products eligible for membership discount will be designated as such on their product pages. Taxes and fees on discounted products are subject to standard (non-discounted) rates.

Other Benefits

Limitations

ELIGIBILITY: Even if you are/become a member, our Sweepstakes are open only to legal U.S. residents (excluding those excluded in individual sweepstakes rules – see “Official Rules” for each sweepstakes offered for more information) who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or the age of majority, whichever is older, in their respective state of permanent residence at the time of entry (the “Entrants”). Employees, officers and representatives of the Sponsor, the Administrator, their respective parent companies, employees, officers, directors, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, sales representatives and advertising and promotional agencies, and the officers, directors, agents, and employees of each of the foregoing, and members of their immediate families (defined as including spouse, biological, adoptive and step-parents, grandparents, siblings, children and grandchildren, and each of their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) or households (whether related or not) of any of the above (collectively, the “Released Parties”) are NOT eligible to participate in Sweepstakes. Non-eligibility or non-compliance with any of these eligibility requirements, individual sweepstakes “Official Rules” or membership Terms will result in disqualification and/or revocation of membership. Void in Puerto Rico, U.S. territories, and where prohibited or restricted by law.

AGREEMENT TO OFFICIAL RULES: By participating in membership, members agree to abide by and be bound by the individual sweepstakes Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes or membership. Winning a Prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein and individual sweepstakes “Official Rules” set forth therein.

Other Limitations

Fees and Renewal

The membership fee is $14.95. From time to time, we may offer different membership terms, and the fees for such membership may vary. The membership fee is non-refundable except as expressly set forth in these Terms. Taxes may apply on the membership fee, products, entries or shipping.

If you sign up for your membership through us and are billed by us, then the billing terms described below will apply to your membership.

If all eligible payment methods we have on file for you are declined for payment of your membership fee, you must provide us a new eligible payment method promptly or your membership will be canceled. If you provide us with a new eligible payment method and are successfully charged, your new membership period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.

UNLESS YOU NOTIFY US BEFORE A CHARGE THAT YOU WANT TO CANCEL OR DO NOT WANT TO AUTO RENEW, YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR MEMBERSHIP WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONTINUE AND YOU AUTHORIZE US (WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU, UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW) TO COLLECT THE THEN-APPLICABLE MEMBERSHIP FEE AND ANY TAXES, USING ANY ELIGIBLE PAYMENT METHOD WE HAVE ON RECORD FOR YOU.

If you signed up for your membership and are not billed directly by us (ex: Paypal), then the billing terms provided by the third party will apply to your membership.

Promotional Memberships

We sometimes offer customers various promotional memberships, which are subject to these Terms except as otherwise stated in the promotional offers. Promotional members may at any time (through Your Account) choose not to continue to paid monthly membership at the end of the promotional period.

Agreement Changes

We may at our discretion change these Terms, Providinghopeva.com's Terms/Conditions of Use and Privacy Notice, or any aspect of membership, without notice to you. If any change to these terms is found invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that change is severable and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining changes or conditions. YOUR CONTINUED MEMBERSHIP AFTER WE CHANGE THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY CHANGES, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP.

Termination by Us

We may terminate your membership at our discretion without notice. If we do so, we will give you a prorated refund based on the number of full months remaining in your membership. However, we will not give any refund for termination related to conduct that we determine, at our discretion, violates these Terms or any applicable law, involves fraud or misuse of the membership, or is harmful to our interests or another user. Our failure to insist upon or enforce your strict compliance with these Terms will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights.

Limitation of Liability

IN ADDITION TO OTHER LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS IN PROVIDINGHOPEVA.COM'S TERMS/CONDITIONS OF USE, OUR TOTAL LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED THE LAST MEMBERSHIP FEE YOU PAID. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WILL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW AND WILL SURVIVE CANCELLATION OR TERMINATION OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP.

Disputes

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to these Terms or your use of membership, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Providing Hope VA or through Providinghopeva.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Registered Agents Inc, 6650 RIVERS AVE STE 100, N CHARLESTON, SC 29406-4809. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Providing Hope VA will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration 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.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
