Kate Farms Gift Cards
PURCHASE AND USE OF GIFT CARDS
Kate Farms may offer gift cards in digital form (“Gift Cards”) through our Services. By purchasing, accepting, or using a Gift Card, you agree to be bound by the terms set out in this section and the entire Terms on behalf of yourself and all individuals who purchase, accept, or use the Gift Card under your account. A Gift Card will be issued originally to the purchaser via a confirmation email containing a unique code for redeeming the Gift Card value. The purchaser may later send the Gift Card to a desired recipient by forwarding the confirmation email containing such unique code.
REDEEMING GIFT CARDS
A Gift Card holds a balance, which can be applied toward purchases up to the available balance on the Gift Cards, including taxes and shipping. The available balance of the Gift Card is reduced by the amount of each purchase of products and other applicable deductions required by law. If you wish to make a purchase exceeding the available Gift Card balance, you must combine the use of the Gift Card with other payment methods accepted by us. You may redeem multiple Gift Cards toward the same purchase.
The Gift Card balance may only be used on future purchases for eligible goods and services on KateFarms.com.
CHECKING GIFT CARDS BALANCE
You may check your Gift Cards balance by either (1) following the link in the confirmation email containing the unique code for redeeming the Gift Card value, or (2) contacting our Customer Care team via the Contact Us Form.
Your Gift Cards balance cannot be used to purchase other Gift Cards. Gift Cards cannot be reloaded, resold, used for payment outside KateFarms.com, used for unauthorized advertising, promotional or commercial purposes, or used in a manner otherwise prohibited by these Terms or by law. Gift Cards are not refundable or redeemable for cash or credit, unless required by law.
By using a Gift Card you agree to comply with these Terms, and to not use a Gift Card in any way that is misleading, deceptive, unfair, or otherwise harmful to Kate Farms, our affiliates, or our users. We reserve the right, without notice to you, to void Gift Cards without a refund, suspend or terminate user accounts, and cancel or limit purchases if we suspect that a Gift Card is obtained, used, or applied to a purchase on KateFarms.com fraudulently, unlawfully, or otherwise in violation of these Terms.
NO EXPIRATION OR FEES
Your Gift Cards balance does not expire. No inactivity, maintenance or other fees apply.
RISK OF LOSS
The risk of loss and title for Gift Cards passes to the purchaser upon our electronic transmission of the Gift Card to the purchaser or designated recipient. You are responsible for safeguarding your Kate Farms Gift Cards from loss or unauthorized use. Kate Farms is not responsible for, and assumes no liability to you for, any unlawful conduct or fraud by any third party associated with any Gift Cards.
WITHOUT LIMITING THE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES IN OTHER SECTIONS OF THESE TERMS AND TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO GIFT CARDS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN THE EVENT A GIFT CARD IS NON-FUNCTIONAL, YOUR SOLE REMEDY AND OUR SOLE LIABILITY, WILL BE THE REPLACEMENT OF THAT GIFT CARD.
Indemnity, Disclaimers and Limits on Liability
You agree to release, indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Kate Farms, its affiliated companies (collectively “Kate Farms”), and their respective affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, licensors, licensees, agents, and representatives (the “Covered Entities”) against all liability, claims, costs, damages, settlements, and expenses (including interest, penalties, attorney fees and expert witness fees) (“Liabilities”) incurred by any Covered Entity in any way arising out of or relating to your breach of these Terms or our other policies referenced in these Terms, including but not limited to any use of any of your User Content that infringes the rights of third parties. Kate Farms reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and if Kate Farms assumes defense and control, you agree to cooperate with our defense of an applicable claim. You agree not to settle any matter related to the Services, including indemnified claims, without our prior written consent. We will use reasonable efforts to inform you of any indemnified matter.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, THE COVERED ENTITIES MAKE NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND ABOUT THE SITE or any Productions created via the site, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE COVERED ENTITIES HAVE NOT MADE ANY REPRESENTATION AS TO THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS YOU MAY REALIZE BY USING THE SITE or any Productions created via the site. THE SITE and all Productions are PROVIDED AS IS, WITH ALL FAULTS, AND AS AVAILABLE. THE COVERED ENTITIES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE MENTIONED ABOVE.

LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY
THE COVERED ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR (A) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, Statutory Damages or penalties, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION), EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF these types of DAMAGES, OR (B) LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO REPUTATION arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (i) these Terms or site or services, and (ii) any acts or omissions of any of the covered entities in connection with these terms or the site or services.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
Exceptions to Disclaimers and Exclusions of Damages
If you live in a jurisdiction that does not allow disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, the foregoing disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you. For New Jersey residents, the limitations set forth above are inapplicable where attorneys’ fees, court costs, or other damages are mandated by statute.
Timing of Claims
You must bring any claim you have against Kate Farms relating to these Terms or the Services within two years from the date of accrual of the applicable claim.
Legal Disputes and Arbitration Agreement
INITIAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
We are available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
AGREEMENT TO BINDING ARBITRATION
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to the preceding paragraph, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS on a non-confidential basis in accordance with the provisions of its then-effective rules, including its streamlined procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act shall exclusively govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision and the parties hereby reject, waive and disclaim the application of any state Arbitration Act.
The JAMS rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/, or by calling JAMS at 1.800.352.5267. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Kate Farms will pay the additional cost. A request for payment of fees should be submitted to JAMS along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and Kate Farms will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to JAMS. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of
arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
EXCEPTION – SMALL CLAIMS COURT CLAIMS
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
30 DAY RIGHT TO OPT OUT
EXCLUSIVE VENUE FOR LITIGATION
Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Santa Barbara, California (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in Santa Barbara, California for any litigation other than small claims court actions. The Parties irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction in Santa Barbara, California for any litigation and hereby waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction of Santa Barbara, California over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) these Terms or the Services, and (b) any acts or omissions of any of the Covered Entities in connection with these Terms or the Services.
