We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you through a payment account linked to your Profile on the Your Plan page (your “Billing Account”). The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for errors by the Payment Processor. You agree to pay all fees charged to your Billing Account based on Quantum Square’s fees, charges, and billing terms in effect as shown on the payment page when you first register for an account, through the Payment Processor. You are also responsible for paying any sales and use taxes and shipping and handling fees that may apply to your purchase of Quantum Square energy bars (“Products”) based on the address that you provide as the shipping address when you register for an account, and you authorize Quantum or the third party payment processing service provider that we engage to charge for any such taxes and fees. All payments shall be made by your chosen payment provider (“Payment Method”) in advance prior to shipping the Products. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you or if your Payment Method cannot be charged for any reason, Quantum reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your account and Membership and terminate these Terms of Service and you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand. All sales and payments will be in US dollars.
Quantum and Quantum's third party payment service provider may receive updated Payment Method information from your credit card or Payment Method issuer. The disbursement of the updated Payment Method information is provided to Quantum and Quantum's third party payment service provider at the election of your credit card and Payment Method issuer. Quantum nor Quantum's third party payment service provider is responsible for the distribution of your credit card or Payment Method information. It is at the sole election of your credit card or Payment Method issuer. Your credit card or Payment Method issuer may give you the right to opt out of the update service. It is your responsibility to contact your credit card or Payment Method issuer with regards to your right to opt out of the update service.
AUTHORIZED CHANGE IN AMOUNT
If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), you have the right to receive, and we shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
CURRENT INFORMATION REQUIRED
You must provide current, complete and accurate information for your billing account. You must promptly update all information to keep your billing account current, complete and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date), and you must promptly notify us or our payment processor if your payment method is canceled (e.G., For loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorized disclosure or use of your username or password. Changes to such information can be made by going to your Profile under Your Details page . If you fail to provide any of the foregoing information, you agree that we may continue charging you for any use of paid services under your billing account unless you have terminated your paid services as set forth in the Membership Cancellation below.
Through our Properties, we offer a variety of flavors for sale. We cannot guarantee the availability of a particular product at any particular time. We reserve the right to change our merchandise offerings on our Properties, without notice, at any time. We also reserve the right to change contents, features and offerings, and adjust accessibility, of our Properties from time to time in our sole and absolute discretion. When you visit our Properties or send us emails, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email or by posting notices on our Properties. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. We reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders at our sole discretion.
Your Membership may start with a promotional trial period, allowing you to receive your first box shipment at a reduced price ("Trial"). You will be required to have a valid Payment Method on file in order to initiate the Trial offer. At the time of sign-up, your Payment Method will just be charged for the reduced trial price and shipping and taxes, if applicable. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply. Quantum Squares reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your Trial eligibility.
We will begin billing your Payment Method the applicable monthly Membership fees, based on the flavor(s) you selected at the end of the Trial unless you cancel your Membership prior to the end of the Trial. To view the specific details of your Membership, including monthly Membership price and end date of your Trial, visit your Profile, under Your Details page. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your Trial period.
You will not receive a notice from us that your promotional (reduced Trial) pricing has ended or that the standard rate portion of your Membership has begun (which may or may not include discount incentives offered set to begin after the Trial period ends). To avoid being charged after the expiration of your Trial, you must cancel your Membership prior to the end of the Trial Offer period in order to avoid being charged for the Membership. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your Membership fee until you cancel. If you cancel prior to the end of the Trial Offer period and are inadvertently charged for a Membership, please contact us. Trial Offers are one-time only for new customers and are limited to one per household.
Quantum Squares reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to withdraw or modify any Trial offerings or promotions at any time without prior notice and without liability.
AUTO-RENEWAL FOR SUBSCRIPTION
MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL FEES WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED TO YOUR CARD ON FILE EACH MONTH. Quantum Squares will automatically renew your Membership on each monthly anniversary date of the Membership and, as authorized by you by checking the box demonstrating your consent for automatic monthly renewal of your Membership during the sign-up process, we will charge your Payment Method with the applicable Membership fee and any shipping and handling costs and sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your Membership fee payments. Each Membership renewal period is for one month.
You may cancel your Membership at any time by logging on to your account Profile. To cancel a membership, please go to Your Details and select the "Cancel Your Plan", and confirm your cancellation. Cancellation requests submitted in this manner must be received at least one full calendar day prior to your next shipping date to avoid being charged for that shipment. Cancellation requests received after that shall take effect the following month. Cancellation requests received by Quantum through other channels may take up to five (5) days to process. If you have any problems, please contact us. Quantum requires a reasonable amount of time to process your Membership cancellation request. If you cancel your Membership, you will enjoy your Membership benefits until the end of the then-current Membership term and your Membership benefits will expire at the end of the then-current Membership term for which you have paid. Your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. You will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the Membership fees paid for any unused days of the then-current Membership term. All fees related to member services are fully earned upon payment. All provisions of these Terms of Service which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
REAFFIRMATION OF AUTHORIZATION
Your non-termination or continued use of Membership reaffirms that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method for that Membership. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially selected to use the Membership.
Shipping and Product Acceptance
The shipment date will be determined according to whichever date is closer to the date of the member’s first purchase date. Shipping dates are estimates only. All shipments are sent Priority Mail via the US Postal Service. The risk of loss and title for all Products purchased via our Properties pass to the Customer upon delivery of the item to the carrier.
PAUSING AND RESUMING SHIPPING
Quantum Squares offers its members the ability to temporarily pause their Memberships (“Pause Period”). During the Pause Period, members will remain active members, but they will not receive or be charged for any Quantum Products. A Membership may be placed on a Pause Period indefinietly. During the Pause Period, members will remain a member of Quantum, continue to receive communications from Quantum via email, but will not be charged any maintenance or membership fee.
Members who are in a Pause Period may resume receiving Quantum Products by logging into their Profile page and Resuming shipping either immediately or on their original bill date. You may email any questions about the Pause Period by contacting us.
If you are dissatisfied with one of our Products for any reason, Quantum will refund the amount paid for your most recent month of service. Refund requests must be made directly to Quantum Squares by contacting us. All refund requests must be made within thirty (21) days of the date of shipment by Quantum Squares and there must be less than 3 bars missing. Quantum is not liable for Products that are damaged or lost in transit to Quantum. Promptly following Quantum’s receipt of your request (typically within five (5) business days), Quantum will credit the amount paid for the returned Product (less any shipping and handling costs related to the original purchase, which are non-refundable) to the Payment Method you used to make the original purchase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Quantum does not control when a specific credit card or payment method company processes a chargeback transaction. You are responsible for contacting your credit card or payment method company if you have questions about the status of the chargeback.
Quantum Squares will not provide a refund for a request that is received by Quantum more than thirty (21) days after the date of original shipment or missing more than 3 bars. Quantum also does not provide a refund for returned Products that are damaged due to misuse, lack of care, mishandling, accident, abuse or other abnormal use.

DISPUTES; ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTIONS; JURY TRIAL
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to the principles of conflicts or choice of laws, except that the Federal Arbitration Act will apply as described below. By using our Properties in any way, you unconditionally consent and agree that:
- (a) any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have against Quantum Square Parties arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with our Properties or the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS, except that either party may bring any applicable claim in small claims court.
- (b) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16.
- (c) the arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles, California.
- (d) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into in connection with the website.
- (e) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law.
- (f) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only your and/or the applicable Quantum’s individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
- (g) BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS YOU ARE WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
- (h) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any Quantum Square Party.

In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Quantum Squares will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.
- (j) with the exception of subpart (f) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (f) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Quantum Squares shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
