Terms of Service & Use

1. Introduction

These are the terms of use (“Terms of Use”) for your use of services or features on the sites owned and controlled by Standard Bikini USA, Inc. (“Standard Bikini”), including www.standardbikini.com and related properties (the “Sites”). We may add additional Sites from time to time as we expand our offerings and these Terms of Use will govern those new Sites when added. You may be accessing our Sites from a computer or mobile phone device (through an iPhone application, for example) and these Terms of Use govern your use of our Sites and your conduct, regardless of the means of access.

If you register for a Standard Bikini account, you will have several pages associated with your Standard Bikini account, including a Profile page, Orders page, and Account page. Your information listed there is not visible to anyone but you.

Standard Bikini has a separate online social community (“Community”). Community features allow you to leave reviews or have your social media or other content featured on our site. These Terms of Use govern your participation in the Community.

If you have not previously registered for a Standard Bikini account and selected a nickname, you can only create a public Profile page if you affirmatively choose to be a part of the Community. Some of the information you provide in association with the Community can be seen by everyone and some information can only be seen by you on your Profile, as indicated when you enter it.

BY USING THE SITES, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS OF USE, OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR GUIDELINES AND RULES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THESE, YOU SHOULD NOT USE OUR SITES.

We also like to interact with you on third party sites where we post content or invite your feedback, such as www.facebook.com/StandardBikiniwww.twitter.com/StandardBikiniwww.instagram.com/StandardBikini, and www.youtube.com, (“Third Party Sites”). Our Terms of Use and other areas of our Sites may provide guidelines (“Guidelines”) and rules and regulations (“Rules”) in connection with the Community, including services that involve Third Party Sites, but Standard Bikini does not control those Third Party Sites, and these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and our Rules do not apply to companies that Standard Bikini does not own or control, or to the actions of people that Standard Bikini does not employ or manage. You should always check the terms of use posted on Third Party Sites.

Standard Bikini reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in the Terms of Use, Guidelines and Rules from time to time at any time, without notice, and in its sole discretion. If Standard Bikini decides to change these Terms of Use, Standard Bikini will post a new version on the Sites and update the date set forth above. Any changes or modifications to these Terms of Use, Guidelines or Rules will be effective upon posting of the revisions. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SITES FOLLOWING POSTING OF ANY CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS AND IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE USING THE SITES. For this reason, you should frequently review these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and Rules and any other applicable policies, including their dates, to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Sites and your participation in the Community.

Summary:

When you use our Sites, you agree to our rules. And since they’re our Sites and our rules, we can change them whenever we want.

Summary:

We work hard making the content on our Sites, so we’re protective of what happens to it. Unless you’re placing an order, engaging in Community, or shopping, you need permission from us to use our content elsewhere.

3. Trademarks

standardbikini.com and all page headers, custom graphics and button icons are service marks, trademarks, and/or trade dress of Standard Bikini and may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not offered by Standard Bikini in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers.

The products displayed on the Sites can be ordered and delivered only within the U.S. and certain select countries. See the International Shipments section of standardbikini.com for more information. Standard Bikini products displayed on the Sites may be available in select Standard Bikini retail stores in the U.S. and certain foreign markets. All prices displayed on standardbikini.com are quoted in U.S. Dollars and are valid and effective only in the U.S. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by Standard Bikini.

Summary:

Our products and samples are for personal use, not for resale. That’s why we have a limit on how much you can purchase of certain products.

5. Color Information

While Standard Bikini has tried to accurately display the colors of products, the actual colors you see will depend on your monitor and may not be accurate.

6. Responsibility for your Content

You are solely responsible for all content that you upload, post, email or otherwise transmit via or to the Sites, through the Community or otherwise, including the submission of product Ratings & Reviews and all other data, profile information, documents, text, software, applications, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, forum postings, comments, questions, answers or other materials (collectively, “Content”). We will not accept Content from you unless you are a registered user of the Sites and a member of Community.

7. Your Use of Content on the Sites and Limitation of Liability

Standard Bikini provides the Sites and the Community and all other applications and services on the Sites as a forum only. Standard Bikini is not liable for any statements, representations, or Content provided by its users in any public forum on the Sites or any Third Party Site, including without limitation through the Community. Any Content, if displayed, is displayed for entertainment and informational purposes only. More generally, Content posted via or on the Sites or any Third Party Site, including through the Community, is not controlled by Standard Bikini. Standard Bikini cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using the Community, you may be exposed to Content that may be offensive, indecent or objectionable and Standard Bikini shall not be liable for any such Content and that the risk of harm or damage from the foregoing rests entirely with you. Under no circumstances will Standard Bikini be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for (i) any errors or omissions in any Content; or (ii) any loss or damage (including, without limitation, personal injury or property damage) of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed or otherwise transmitted via or to the Sites or through the Community. The preceding sentence does not apply to New Jersey residents.

You may access the Content and any other content on the Sites only as permitted under these Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy and you agree to not engage in the use, copying or distribution of any of the Content other than as expressly provided herein.

You agree not to circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Site or features that prevent or restrict use of any Content or enforce limitations on use of the Site or the Content therein. You may not interfere with or disrupt the Sites, or servers or networks connected to the Sites, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks connected to the Sites, including by using any device, software or routine to bypass robot exclusion headers. Standard Bikini reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Content. When using the Community, you may not disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, cause a screen to “scroll” faster than other users are able to type, or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users’ ability to engage in real time exchanges.

Summary:

Take what other users post with a grain of salt; they may have opinions you disagree with, their reviews may be biased, or they may be having a bad day. Interacting with all the content on our Sites is at your own risk. We’re not responsible for services or products offered by others.

This includes, but is not limited to, sharing your Content, including your Ratings & Reviews, with third-party brands whose product we sell. This license will survive the termination of these Terms of Use and your use of the Site.

Summary:

When you post content to our Sites, you’re acknowledging that you are posting content on the internet, in public, for everyone to see, use, copy, and share. Please only post content that a) you have the rights to post, b) does not violate anyone else’s rights, and c) is fair and truthful. We are not responsible if others don’t behave by these rules.

You own your content, even after you post it to our Sites. But by sharing with us you’re granting us a non-exclusive license to it, which means we might use it in places like marketing materials.

We know that some Community posts include ideas or business proposals for Standard Bikini—we don’t pay for unsolicited suggestions like these. And know that when you post ideas like this in public, they’re not covered by any kind of confidentiality or copyright protection.

Standard Bikini does not guarantee, endorse or adopt the accuracy or completeness of any Third Party Content or any Third Party Site.

23. Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:

WE BOTH AGREE TO ARBITRATE: You and Standard Bikini agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Standard Bikini’s intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights). Under such circumstances Standard Bikini may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Site, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.

WHAT IS ARBITRATION: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.

ARBITRATION PROCEDURES: The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in this Agreement to Arbitrate, the rules set forth in this Agreement to Arbitrate will govern. The JAMS Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267.

AUTHORITY OF ARBITRATOR: The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Standard Bikini, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Standard Bikini.

NO CLASS ACTIONS: You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.

WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court.

In the event any litigation should arise between you and Standard Bikini in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND Standard Bikini WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.

OPT-OUT OF AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing Standard Bikini at standardbikini @ gmail.com and providing the requested information as follows: (1) Your Name; (2) the URL of Terms of Use and Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes; (3) Your Address; (4) Your Phone Number; (5) and clear statement that you wish to opt out of this arbitration provision in the Terms of Use. The Opt-Out Notice must be emailed no later than 30 days after the date you first accept the Terms of Use by using the website.

24. Choice of Law/Forum Selection

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, excluding its conflict of law rules. For any action where the Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, you further expressly consent and agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of a court of competent jurisdiction located in Duval County, Florida.

25. Severability

The provisions of these Terms of Use are intended to be interpreted in a manner which makes them valid, legal, and enforceable. In the event any provision is found to be partially or wholly invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be modified or restricted to the extent and in the manner necessary to render it valid, legal, and enforceable. It is expressly understood and agreed between the parties that such modification or restriction may be accomplished unilaterally by Standard Bikini, or alternatively, by disposition of an arbitrator or a court of law. If such provisions cannot under any circumstances be so modified or restricted, they shall be excised from the Terms of Use without affecting the validity, legality or enforceability of any of the remaining provisions.
