SECURITY & PAYMENT.
DUTIES AND TAXES.
All prices indicated on this website do not reflect any or all of the international duties, taxes, or other customs charges that the package may encounter when it arrives at its final destination. Please contact the customs agency officials to find out of all applicable taxes and duties (if any). Those charges vary greatly from country to country and will not be covered by us.
FAILED DELIVERIES | REFUSED SHIPMENTS | INCORRECT ADDRESS.
Your order will be shipped via a shipping provider to the address provided. Tracking numbers are sent to your email address as soon as we receive them from our warehouse. If you do not receive a tracking number, please let us know. Use your shipment tracking number to track your package in transit.
Incomplete or incorrect address information is the primary cause of delayed shipments. Check the information on your order. Make sure you have included ALL the information (address, apt#, etc.) needed to deliver your package. Some shipping providers charge a service fee for address corrections. The customer will be responsible for the payment of additional fees caused by the wrong address information.
DELIVERY OF ITEMS.
We do not take responsibility for products that have been marked as delivered by the shipping provider but have not been received. Please contact the shipping provider in case of such an issue.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN AN ITEM IS ON PRE-ORDER?
Popular items may sell out quickly and temporarily be out of stock. This means the items are on their way back to be restocked but in the meantime, you can reserve your selections on pre-order before it’s gone again. Pre-ordering is a worry-free way to ensure that you will be first in line for the new inventory and the item which you pre-ordered, will be shipped to you as soon as we receive it!
Any additional items you ordered in the same order as your pre-order item will be shipped out immediately and any pre-orders will be held as a back-order until it arrives.
The pre-ordered items will automatically ship out as soon as we receive the item in the order in which they were placed.
You will be notified via a shipment confirmation email (and a tracking number) once your pre-ordered items have shipped. No need to contact customer support to follow up on a pre-ordered item. We will update you on the status from here on out.
We will do our best to estimate* when pre-ordered items are expected to ship, so visit our website for new updates and new item lookouts.
*Shipping dates are subject to change and are not set in stone. We would love to promise the exact shipping dates for you, but there are unforeseen circumstances that may happen (customs, weather conditions, etc.). So we greatly appreciate your understanding. But we promise this, you will definitely enjoy your products!
ITEMS THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE YET.
Certain items offered on the Website are available for purchase but because these products are only planned for and have not yet been manufactured, we can make no representation or warranty as to if and when such item will be shipped and provided to you. In the event we are unable to fulfill your purchase we will provide you with a full refund for such item.

Governing Law & Venue.
These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Los Angeles, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief. You agree that Los Angeles, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Slate Brands in the most expedient and cost effective manner, we agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of when a claim arises. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THESE TERMS SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
Notwithstanding subsection the above, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of you or Slate Brands to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and Slate Brands will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA.
The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting us . The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
If you or Slate Brands intends to seek arbitration, then the party seeking arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail ("Notice"). Slate Brands address for Notice is: 11 Broadway, Suite 1155, New York, NY 10004, Attn: Chief Executive Officer. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). You and Slate Brands will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if you and Slate Brands do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Slate Brands may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Slate Brands must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, we will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. If the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. You and Slate Brands agree that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from you or us made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
No Class Actions.
YOU AND SLATE BRANDS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless we both agree otherwise in a signed writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Modifications to this Arbitration Provision.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Messaging Terms, if we makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to our address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to our address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between us.
If an arbitrator decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of the limitations above (addressing class, representative and consolidated proceedings) as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and brought in court.

WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY.

If any other provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the applicable provision shall be deemed stricken and the remainder of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
Any giveaways or promotions in connection with us shall be governed by the official rules applicable to such events.
