Please read these Terms carefully. By using the Platform, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms.
THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, WHICH REQUIRES THAT YOU AND MONTHLY GIFT ARBITRATE CERTAIN CLAIMS BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF GOING TO COURT AND LIMITS CLASS ACTION CLAIMS, UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AS DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION SECTION.
You may be asked to create an account in order to access certain features of the Platform. In order to create an account, we will ask you to complete a registration form, provide an email address, and create a password (“Account Information”). Our App users may also have the opportunity to create a security pin to protect their account.
When you register for an account with us, the following rules apply:
We may suspend or terminate your account or access to the Platform at any time with or without notice if we suspect an unauthorized use of your account.
a. Product Information; Availability
Monthly Gift attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Monthly Gift does not warrant that product descriptions or other content on the Platform will always be accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Certain information may contain pricing errors, typographical errors and other errors or inaccuracies, which we may correct without liability. We do not guarantee that all products described on our Platform will be available at all times.
b. Risk of Loss
Any merchandise purchased from our Platform will be shipped by a third party carrier. As a result, title and risk of loss for such merchandise will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
c. Fraud Protection
We strive to protect you and the integrity of the Platform. We may monitor the Platform and screen any orders or other transactions for fraud or other types of unauthorized or illegal activity. We reserve the right to refuse to process an order due to suspected fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity. If we suspect fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity, we may reject your order or we may contact you at the phone number or email address you provided to confirm your order. We also reserve the right to cancel any accounts or refuse to ship to certain addresses due to suspected fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity.
**Note: At Monthly Gift, we charge and ship based on the length of your menstrual cycle. We offer cycle to cycle, 6 cycle and 12 cycle subscription plans.
a. Subscription Plans
By subscribing to Monthly Gift and providing or designating a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”), you agree that Monthly Gift may charge the Payment Method for your subscription at the then-current subscription rate (including any taxes, including local sales tax or VAT, and late fees, as applicable). You agree that your Payment Method will automatically be charged by Monthly Gift (through its payment card processing service provider) on a cycle to cycle, 6 cycle, or 12 cycle basis (depending on your subscription plan) until you cancel your subscription or until prohibited by applicable law.
We reserve the right to change our fee structure at any time, except for the subscription fees applicable to any then-current fee-bearing subscription period. We also reserve the right to initiate special incentive pricing, membership and other programs, which may be limited, at our sole discretion, to defined and limited existing users or new users. We do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
We automatically bill your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription. We may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of membership or service-related charges and we reserve the right to change the timing of our billing if your Payment Method has not been successfully processed. As used in these Terms, “billing” shall indicate a charge, debit or other payment clearance, as applicable, against your Payment Method.
c. Cancelling Your Subscription
You may cancel your subscription at any time by emailing us at email@example.com. If you cancel, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term. We may refuse to renew any subscription in our sole discretion.
FOR OUR CYCLE TO CYCLE SUBSCRIPTIONS, IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL 5 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR SHIP DATE, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THAT CYCLE’S SUBSCRIPTION CHARGE. All cancellation requests received less than 5 days before the ship date will apply to the following cycle.
Monthly Gift will not send you a monthly or annual statement. Receipts for recurring charges can be viewed and printed from your account. If you revoke authorization to charge your payment card, or if for any reason your payment card issuer does not submit payment, Monthly Gift will cancel your subscription or suspend your use of the Service.
PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS.
d. Updating Your Subscription
Once your current subscription period expires, you may renew your subscription plan, or you may upgrade (or downgrade) to a different subscription level. You may not downgrade your plan (e.g. from a 12 cycle to a 6 cycle plan, or a 6 cycle plan to a cycle to cycle plan) until your current subscription term expires.
e. Suspending Your Subscription.
You may suspend your subscription prospectively by clicking “Pause Monthly Gift” within your account. If you don’t suspend your subscription 5 days before your ship date, your suspension will become effective the following cycle. You may suspend your subscription for up to 12 cycles. Your subscription will automatically reactivate once your suspension period expires.
a. Coupon Codes
Coupon codes have no cash value and cannot be redeemable for cash, and cannot be combined with any other offers. Limit one coupon code per order. Coupon codes generally expire and are no longer valid for redemption 90 days after their date of generation, but certain coupon codes may have their own redemption period as specified in connection with the coupon code itself. The unauthorized reproduction, resale, modification, or trade of coupon codes is prohibited. Coupon codes are void where prohibited, taxed or restricted. Monthly Gift reserves the right to change or limit coupon codes in its sole discretion.
b. Free Trials
From time to time, we may offer a free one-month trial of our Monthly Gift subscriptions. Get your first box free and see how you like it. If you love it – and we hope you do! – you will be automatically enrolled in (and charged for) the subscription plan you selected. You must cancel before your second box ships in order to avoid being charged. Shipping dates vary based on your cycle. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any trouble cancelling your subscription.
**Note: All free trials require a valid credit card.
c. Other Promotions.
We may offer other promotions. Any special terms or conditions will be disclosed at the time of the promotion.

a. Arbitration Provision
You agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be resolved informally and that relate in any way to or arise out of the Platform or these Terms, shall be final and binding arbitration, except to the extent that you have in any manner infringed upon or violated or threatened to infringe upon or violate Monthly Gift’s or any third party patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, privacy or publicity rights, in which case you acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy at law and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought by Monthly Gift and/or the applicable third party(ies). You and we acknowledge that the Platform and Terms affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to arbitrations under the Agreement (despite any other choice of law provision).
Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”).
b. Arbitration Opt-Out
YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION WITH REGARD TO ANY PARTICULAR INTERACTION WITH THE PLATFORM, THEN WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF SUCH INTERACTION, YOU MAY OPT-OUT OF THIS PART OF THE AGREEMENT BY SENDING AN EMAIL TO email@example.com. Any opt-out received after the thirty (30) day time period will not be valid and you must pursue your claim via arbitration pursuant to these Terms.
c. Class Action Waiver
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER CLAIM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE PLATFORM, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED. In the event that this CLASS ACTION WAIVER is deemed unenforceable, then any putative class action may only proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration.
d. Jury Trial Waiver
WE BOTH AGREE THAT, WHETHER ANY CLAIM IS IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AND MONTHLY GIFT BOTH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL INVOLVING ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES BETWEEN US.
e. Statute of Limitations
In no event shall any claim, action or proceeding by you related in any way to the Platform, or these Terms, be instituted more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.
If any part of these Terms shall be held or declared to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective but shall not affect any other part of these Terms.
b. Waiver; Remedies
The failure of Monthly Gift to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of Monthly Gift of any breach of these Terms by you shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by Monthly Gift or be deemed a waiver by Monthly Gift of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and remedies of Monthly Gift under these Terms and any other applicable agreement between you and Monthly Gift shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit Monthly Gift’s right to exercise any other right or remedy.

Apple and Google shall each be a third-party beneficiary of this agreement with respect to this paragraph.
