Updates to Terms of Service These Terms of Service last updated June 26, 2018. Review of Order and Proofs is Your Responsibility For each of our products that requires personalization, there will be a proofing process. If a product requires personalization, you will be asked to submit that information using either online forms, e-mail or other written communication. We offer proofing services for certain of our products whereby a professional designer may adjust the design for layout, sizing and spacing. Each order with proofing services is rendered as a digital proof for approval before any printing begins. Because of the personalized nature of our products, we are unable to accept returns. So we encourage you to take great care to ensure the accuracy of each order before printing. When proofing services are provided, we generally provide only one proof to allow for any changes unless otherwise stated in accordance with the applicable service. We ask that you carefully review your proof, as additional proofs and design work will incur a fee. Optional Services Private Stock offers optional services such as personalized design services, art styling services, hand-addressing and calligraphy for your envelopes. Optional services may be negotiated specifically for your order, based on the quantities and specifications you choose and must be mutually agreed to by Private Stock. Such services may be outsourced to contractors of Private Stock, and will be subject to additional and separate terms and conditions from those contained in these Terms of Service, including but not limited to Private Stock’s Cancellation Policy. Website Access Private Stock grants you permission to use the Website as set forth in these Terms of Service, provided that: (i) your use of the Website as permitted is solely for your personal, noncommercial use; (ii) you will not copy or distribute any part of the Website in any medium without Private Stock’s prior written authorization; (iii) you will not alter or modify any part of the Website other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the Website for its intended purpose; (iv) you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred by any laws from using the Website; and (v) you will otherwise comply with all terms and conditions of these Terms of Service.

You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You may change your password at any time by updating your Account Profile page.

You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” or similar technological devices or programs, that access the Website in a manner that sends more requests to our servers than a human can reasonably produce in any period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Private Stock grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the Website for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. We reserve the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases, in our sole discretion.  Dispute Resolution Subject to applicable law, these Terms and Conditions are governed by the laws of the United States (including the Federal Arbitration Act and other federal arbitration law) and the State of California, U.S.A., without regard to its principles of conflicts of law, and regardless of your location. EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY FOR SMALL CLAIMS COURT, ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND PRIVATE STOCK, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY, AND YOU AGREE THAT PRIVATE STOCK AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY. YOU AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND YOU ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by this Agreement. The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online. If the AAA is unable or declines to administer the arbitration, a court of competent jurisdiction may appoint the arbitrator. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances, or as otherwise required by the AAA. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision will follow these Terms and Conditions and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms and Conditions, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms and Conditions will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, provincial, territorial or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail or electronic mail (“Notice”). Private Stock’s address for Notice is: Attention: Legal; Private Stock, LLC; 747 Front Street, Suite 200, San Francisco, California 94111. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Private Stock may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Private Stock must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Private Stock receives Notice that you have commenced arbitration, Private Stock will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the arbitration rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Private Stock will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by Private Stock in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $1,000. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
