You can become a member of the Dopplegang (“Member”) by creating an account (“Account”) by following the instructions in the quiz.. If you already have an account with certain third-party social networking services such as Facebook or Google (each, an “SNS Account”), you can create your Account by granting us permission to extract from your SNS Account certain personal information such as your name and email address and other personal information that your privacy settings on the SNS account permit us to access.
Please make sure you provide us with current, complete and accurate information for your Account, and you agree to promptly update your Account information, including your email address and Payment Information (as defined below), so that we can complete your Transactions (as defined in the Subscriptions section below) and contact you as needed. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
(a) Service Description: Our quarterly subscription Service is designed to provide you a delightful, personalized shopping experience for your Kids’ clothing and accessories, curated by our expert stylists and proprietary technology. When you create your Account, we’ll ask you to fill out a quick questionnaire (which you may update for each subscription quarter) about your and your Kids’ shopping needs and preferences including, information about your budget, your Kids’ styles and sizes, and what types of products you want to receive, and charge a non-refundable subscription fee of $10 (“Subscription Fee”) using your credit card on file. Based on this information, we will mail you a customized package of clothes, shoes and accessories (collectively, “Outfits”) that our expert stylists create for each of your Kids. You will have seven (7) days after the shipment is delivered to you, to review the selection of items and try them on (“try-on period”). We charge you (after crediting the $10 Subscription Fee for that quarter) for all items not returned in accordance with the Return Policy, below, at the end of the try-on period, although we may bill you earlier in certain circumstances (for example, if you return your shipment before the try-on period is over, if you request us to, if we have reason to believe that the order is fraudulent, if there has been a pattern of credit issues, or if we notify you that we will do so). There are no order minimums or long-term ordering commitments. You may choose to return all your Outfits (in which case your $10 will neither be credited against anything, nor refunded), or return some of your Outfits and keep the rest (in which case your $10 will be applied towards your purchase of the Outfits that you decided to keep). You may suspend your membership at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To protect you and Dopple from fraud, Dopple may contact you from time to time to verify your identity prior to sending you a shipment. You may be asked to provide basic information about yourself to verify your Account, and Dopple may only send you a shipment upon confirmation of your identity.
(b) Right to Refuse Service. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. We also reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit our Service to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction, and we may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.
(c) Return Policy; Shipping: You may return any item from a particular shipment you receive through the Service (in accordance with the instructions below and those provided with such shipment) within seven (7) days after it is delivered. For free returns, any items to be returned must be so returned using the pre-paid return label and box provided by Dopple, and items must be unused, unworn (other than tried-on), in their original condition, and include all original tags and packaging. Shipping is not available to all locations. You will not be charged fees for shipping or return shipping, except in special circumstances (where we will give you advance notice). All items you receive through the Service will be shipped by a third-party carrier.
Members of our Service are enrolled in a quarterly subscription (“Subscription”). Each quarter, we will notify you, in advance, of you upcoming Subscription, and provide you an opportunity to update your responses to the questionnaire. You will be automatically charged the $10 Subscription Fee. When your shipment arrives, if you purchase any items, your Subscription Fee will be credited towards your purchase.
You expressly authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge you each quarter, for the Subscription Fee incurred while your Subscription is active, and each payment you make for items in your shipment that are not returned by the end of the try-on period (each a “Transaction”). We may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, including your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card and your email and postal addresses for billing and notification (such information, “Payment Information”). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. When you initiate a Transaction, you authorize us to provide your Payment Information to third parties so we can complete your Transaction and to charge your payment method for the type of Transaction you have selected (plus any applicable taxes and other charges). You may need to provide additional information to verify your identity before completing your Transaction (such information is included within the definition of Payment Information).
If you are a Member, we will automatically charge you the Subscription Fee at the beginning of your Subscription and each quarter thereafter, at the then-current rate of Subscription Fee, using the Payment Information you have provided, until you cancel your Subscription. We will send you a reminder at least seven (7) days prior to each renewal with the then-current Subscription Fee. If you request us in writing, we may, at our discretion, allow you to put our Service on hold and skip a shipment during a quarter or some other time requested by you, in which case, we will not charge you the Subscription Fee for such time. By agreeing to these Terms and electing to purchase a Subscription, you acknowledge that your Subscription has recurring payment features and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to cancellation of your Subscription by you. Your Subscription continues until cancelled by you or we terminate your access to or use of the Service or Subscription in accordance with these Terms.

These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 16 “Dispute Resolution,” the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and Dopple are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California, and you and Dopple each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
(a) Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Service or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and Dopple agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and that you and Dopple are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.
(b) Exceptions and Opt-out. As limited exceptions to Section 17(a) above: (i) you may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights. In addition, you will retain the right to opt out of arbitration entirely and litigate any Dispute if you provide us with written notice of your desire to do so by email at email@example.com or by regular mail at 1550 Bryant Street, Suite 750, San Francisco, California 94103 within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms.
(c) Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to AAA and give notice to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org.
If your claim is for U.S. $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic or video-conference hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds U.S. $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.
(d) Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. We’ll pay for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees and expenses if your Dispute is for less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.
(e) Class Action Waiver. YOU AND DOPPLE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person's claims with your claims, 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 Dispute Resolution section shall be null and void.
(f) Effect of Changes on Arbitration. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 1 “Changes to Terms or Service” above, if Dopple changes any of the terms of this Section 16 “Dispute Resolution” after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Dopple’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Dopple in accordance with the terms of this Section 16 “Dispute Resolution” as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 17(e) of these Terms ("Class Action Waiver"), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.
(a) Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Dopple and you regarding the Service and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Dopple and you regarding the Service and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Dopple’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Dopple may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
(b) Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by Dopple under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Service. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
(c) Waiver of Rights. Dopple’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Dopple. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
